We had the fixe prix lunch menu. The staff were courteous enough to allow a substitution due to dietary preferences. They went out of their way to keep us pleased and comfortable on our anniversary lunch. Kudos to the staff. Will definitely be coming here again.
Again, another great business lunch. Food and service were spot on. It is a very impressive venue for a casual but upscale lunch. And it is an amazing value even with their star!
Amazing service and experience
Excellent. Need to fix one thing. When door open cold air comes into Restuarant.
Wonderful food and service. Cramped environment and loud, but food makes up for it.
I arrived 15min early but was still seated swiftly, which was nice because I didn’t realize there wasn’t a large waiting area. I highly recommend this place for solo diners. The bartenders and wait staff were attentive where I didn’t feel the need to whip out my phone every 5min. The bartender recommended a drink based on my taste profile, that hit the nail on the head. None of the entrees stood out to me so I opted for a few appetizers and a cheese platter to finish. I loved the clean presentation of the food and the brief description before serving. Everything was easy to eat, which you dont always find in an upscale restaurant. Nothing was too fussy and the vessels everything was served in made sense. The food was so flavorful that I wish there was more per serving, but after letting my stomach and brain catch up after each dish I realized I was more full than expected. The selection of cheeses was concise but still had range. Bonus was that each cheese was described before ultimately choosing 1, 3 or 6. Definitely will be going back.
We had a terrific experience at Blackbird. The presentation and pace of the meal was perfect. We highly recommend the wine pairing.
Amazing personal service. Incredible food. They were friendly, attentive and delivered amazing food
Lunch the day after Valentine's Day: it was nearly full and they were able to seat us before our reservation time. Gracious and friendly staff. A quick review by our waiter of the prix fixe lunch was thrilling. As usual, Blackbird's first courses were splendid, and the main course and desert were very good. Each time we have been there, the food has been wonderful, especially the appetizer or first course.
The lunch was outstanding. The waitstaff is very accommodating to my dietary restrictions need. Definitely will go back .
Very clean & bright setting with white furnitures and wall. Open kitchen. Seats are too close. Dishes are very creative. Lots of novel ingredients as well.
First time here due to Restaurant Week. Service was good but the waiters seemed tired of Restaurant Week. No enthusiasm... Food was great. More like a tasting menu. Reception entrance crowded but the staff did an amazing job taking the excess coats to their second closet/hanger. What was truly amazing is how they rotated the coats. Right when we wee about to leave, the coats were upstairs waiting for us. Amazing!
My only complaint was the bathroom. Busy night, should had someone doing quick clean ups. With the weather, floor was not attractive. Bathroom had a cute place to hang your purse but it was broken. Don’t know why, but that was very irritating for a Restaurant of this scale.
Heard great things about the restaurant, and food. Went there for restaurant week. Service was great, But it couldn’t make up for the terrible food. For dessert we had apple cider vinegar ice cream, and it’s as disgusting as you would think. The vinegar taste but it couldn’t make up for the terrible food. For dessert we had apple cider vinegar ice cream, and it’s as disgusting as you would think. It was like eating cold apple cider vinegar. The entrées were no better, my table tried all the different options and they were not good.
Good portion size
We loved every course prepared for restaurant week and it's hard to choose the best one. Of all the different elements in different dishes we tried I LOVED the mushrooms in miso butter and the fish tempura with the pickled (or just very tart and bright) kale. The wine pairings made perfect sense and our server was incredibly knowledgeable, passionate and delightful. So happy we braved the ice storm for an evening at Blackbird. We will be back.
My favorite business lunch location. 3 courses menu is absolutely fantastic, right size of portions and great taste for a reasonable price.
Great, creative menu
$25 price fixe lunch a phenomenal value. Interesting and well prepared food. Excellent service.
We did the restaurant week tasting menu and wines and it was incredible 😍😍
I always enjoy my once a year lunch at Blackbird during restaurant week! The food is beautifully presented and tastes delicious. The $24 prix fixe is a great deal
Wonderful food and ambiance made even greater by our fabulous server, Heather.
This was my second time having dinner at Blackbird and I have to say that I was still amazed with the food, ambiance and service. I strongly recommend it to anyone that is eager to try a a Micheline star restaurant but don’t want to feel that stuffy athmosphere that most upscale places would give you, yet you get the whole experience
We sat unattended for longer than I would expect but the place was busy. Once recognized, we ordered the restaurant week menu and it was amazing. The pork was especially unique and delicious. Overall, we loved Blackbird for a special occasion and liked watching the industrious line chefs creating the masterpiece dishes
Went for Restaurant Week to celebrate our anniversary and had an amazing time. Outstanding food and fantastic service. Not inexpensive but worth the price for a special occasion!
I felt that the food was overall tasty but a trifle fussy— trying a little too hard to combine unusual flavors and textures. Still, it was a culinary experience and the Skate Tempura was absolutely delicious. The service was exemplary, very warm and welcoming.
Any opportunity to indulge at Blackbird is welcomed. The experience is always delightful exciting. The only miss this time around was the sauce (I believe it maple) where the skate wing tempura rested. It simply overpowered the balance of the skate and it lost its flavor.
This was our second time at Blackbird. Our first time was at the Christmas holiday, which we thoroughly enjoyed. This time, we returned to have lunch during Restaurant Week. It was just as amazing as the first time we had visited. The flavors, the presentation and the overall atmosphere are great. The one thing we did not thoroughly enjoy was the apple cider vinegar ice cream that was part of our apple pie pavlova dessert. It was bit too bitter. Not enough to keep us away - we can't wait to go back.
Very nice venue gives me the NYC vibe. I will absolutely visit again.
Relaxing atmosphere. Our food and the server were amazing. I had a hard time picking a good wine to pair with my entree. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and gave me the perfect recommendation. I had the apple pie pavlova. Loved it as a whole, just be wary of ice cream! It's one of those tastes that takes you for surprise. I hadn't realized it was apple cider ice cream, and tasted it alone. Not my favorite taste. Over all, wonderful experience!
The service is not as good as expected. One of the waiters is kind of rude. Very disappointed.
Restaurant Week meal was fabulous! The wine pairing made it even better.
The food and service were really great! The pork is very recommendable.
Enjoyed Blackbird immensely. The ambiance was professional but not cold the decor was modern and simple. Loved that the servers wore suits and ties. Food was delectable and a wonderful variety of choices for restaurant week. Wine offerings were all inviting - went with the Chardonnay which was excellent. All in all very impressed and would return.
Small restaurant with tables less than a foot apart. We were sitting next to a “loud talker” so until they left I could not hear my dining partner. We had the restaurant week lunch and overall the food was interesting and very tasty. The mushroom veltoue and pork pave were our favorites. Neither of us liked the apple dessert and the texture of the sandy stuff on the chocolate dessert was too hard and off putting. Bread was perfect and the wine on the lunch menu was good.
Superb service and excellent tasting, creative food.
