    I love love loved our experience at Black Swan! Everything was perfect from the food to the service to the ambiance and I love that they have a dress code because everyone looked so nice which made our dining experience even better. We celebrated my birthday there and I felt very special!! Our waiter, Anaya (hopefully I spelled her name right!), was simply amazing. I came from out of town to visit Black Swan for my birthday and I was super satisfied, not disappointed at all. I am already looking forward to visiting again hopefully soon and often.

    When we arrived we were early so we sat at the bar and ordered drinks. The young lady that served us at the bar (blonde wig) wasn't FRIENDLY at all but made a strong drink. We wanted to try some different drinks, but decided not to pay for the treatment. We had to get someone else to get her attention, she was definitely close enough to see us waving our hands for attention. When it was time for our scheduled reservation we reminded the host that we were at the bar still waiting to be seated at a table. We went back to the bar and noticed people coming in and being seated. We waited about 15 minutes or so, then went back a second time to see what was going on, then we were seated about 45 minutes into our scheduled appointment. I want to add that the hostess was very friendly and customer service oriented. We ordered a couple of things from the menu the presentation was nice, the taste was good, but average. The waitress was very friendly and her customer service was on point. This restaurant adds gratuity so I'm guessing that's why the young lady at the bar had a bad disposition, she's going to get paid regardless. This music was nice, the young lady singing was nice, but the music was louder than she was. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was nice. We will come back again for dinner to see if anything changes.

    The only thing I didn’t like or appreciate was we spent a lot of money and still wasn’t full. When we left we were still hungry. The portion size was very small. We shouldn’t have still been hungry after leaving this place. Had to stop at five guys to get something to fill us up‼️ Too much money for a little bit of food

    Our reservation was at 9:15 pm on a Sunday. It was also raining outside so it was hardly crowded at all. We just had to order by 9:45 and leave by 11 for closing! I loved it. Wish we could’ve taken our time and staid a little longer.

    Great ambiance and service, and the food was fresh but everything…and I mean everything was overpriced. I got an appetizer that consisted of 2 tacos…for $27. A flight of casamigos for $38. Just too much in my opinion. It’s also way too loud in there to have a conversation you can actually hear.

    I love Blk Swan. It has so much personality and swag. I was thoroughly pleased with the Pasta Pomodoro, Surf and Turf Tacos, and the Calamari. Me and the group I was with all agreed that this is a restaurant worth visiting again. Just one suggestion, if there is a way that you can consolidate the bill to where all the customers food is in order on the receipt by seat. It got a little confusing with 8 people having to look all over the bill to figure it out after a few drinks. I believe that would make it more convenient for the customer. Either that or just separate the bills. But all in all, great experience, and I highly recommend!!

    My husband and I went for brunch on Saturday. Pros: Friendly staff Music was good Great ambiance Lamb chops were good. French toast was good but bread was alittle tough. Might have been the type of bread they use but sauce/syrup on it was really good. Cons: Drinks weren’t good! For the price the bartenders should step it up Tables were so close together. In order to get in the table I had to turn sideways and slide in. The man next to my husband kept clearing his throat/ coughing. Felt like they just needed to take out one table from the row and the distance would have been better. We would go back again and recommend to people

    It was an anniversary dinner with my wife , the website specified a particular attire , no shorts etc… we got there and people had on the very thing the website said was a no . I wish I would have known , we traveled far to come to this spot, so it just would have been nice to know I could wear whatever I wanted. I’ve been to establishments with a live DJ, before and I reference that point because, I’m sure it will be mentioned what did I expect with a Dj in the venue . I have been to places and it has never been so loud that you could not have a conversation . Literally the server is even yelling at you, to take your order , there was no room for conversation with my wife, it was so loud . It kind of put a damper on things cause we came with the intentions of having a really romantic dinner in a posh upscale environment. My wife was served her two sides , Mac and cheese and asparagus , her entree followed 20 min behind . I gestured with my finger to the owner/chef to come over to the table . He was offended by the way in which I gestured, it was so loud , and the location he was standing in , it was an employee area by the kitchen and , I wanted clarification on the eta of the food for my wife . The owner was very nice and accommodating, he expedited the food , and was pleasant to speak with . The owner replaced the one side , the asparagus because it got cold, and ensured by asking her if her food and my food were to our liking . The over all quality of food for me was just ok, I had different expectations. The presentation of it was nice , the taste and quality for me was not worth 300 bucks. It lacked flavor and depth for me , I had high hopes , it was just ok for me . Perhaps this is a trending happy hour/club spot , not that kind of caliber of restaurant portrayed from the pictures , the website is deceptive.

    We opted for outdoor seating due to nice weather. Unbeknownst to us, we were the 1st and only customers who were offered outdoor seating at the time. The hostess was great. The table was a good size for 2 and entrees. We didn’t feel crowded nor disturbed by being outside of the restaurant. Faith took great care of us answering all of our questions and assisting with suggestions due to dietary preferences. The appetizer, calamari was absolutely delicious. Great portion, flavor, and I loved the variety of peppers. Will be my go to appetizer for sure. Our meals, lamb chops and pasta pomodori with brussels and corn pudding were fantastic! We did not wait long for any of our freshly prepared foods which were still hot, presentation was perfection, and flavor was phenomenal. The staff was extremely accommodating, continuously making certain we were comfortable and enjoying our experience. The customer service and the food were most definitely 5 star. I highly recommend dining here.

    I was looking forward to my visit since I’ve seen BLK Swan a lot on social media. However, my first visit will be my last. The hostess and bar staff are not friendly or welcoming at all. The bartender was busy texting on her phone & I had to wait several minutes before she walked up to me and did not even greet me. I asked for the smoking mirrors to which I was told was unviable ( not a problem but she did not elaborate on whether or not it was the only drink unavailable.) Her demeanor and lack of professionalism was noted, but I didn’t want that to spoil my night. Once seated the waitress was prompt and friendly, but she got my food order wrong. I asked for the lobster scampi pizza with hot honey, but the manager brought the pepperoni sausage hot honey pizza out. When I told him that wasn’t what I ordered he looks confused which let me know the waitress put in the wrong order. She came to my table and asked about my order to which she realized she accidentally put in the pepperoni and sausage hot honey pizza instead of the lobster scampi. I decided to keep the pizza because I wanted to get out of there quickly. The ambience and the drinks are nice but for the price that you pay it is not worth the lackluster service. I will be sticking with the atlas group restaurants in the future. Such a shame because I wanted to support a black restaurant in Baltimore.

    This was a girls’ night out. The place is beautifully decorated. Not too tight as far as seating was concerned. The food was pretty good. The free popcorn snack they placed on the table was not good. It was drizzled with marshmallows on it. Basic bread would have probably been better. The OpenTable app needs to be adjusted because the prices says $30 and under. That was not true at all. The entrées started at 38. Now, the waitress and service was wonderful! She was very pleasant polite and professional and very friendly. I don’t remember her name, but she has blonde wavy hair. The photo opportunities were great, as well! Our ONLY complaint, is the noise level. The music is entirely too loud. This was an opportunity for new friends to meet and my niece who came to town to visit for us to catch up. It was virtually impossible to hear each other at all… even sitting next to each other It was like eating alone almost. I hate to say it because I choose to frequent black everything, from doctors to dentists to nail techs but, unless the music level is lowered, we won’t be going back. Please, please consider changing that.
