    The overall experience was ok. This was our first time going to this restaurant and we decided to go for an anniversary dinner. When we first walked in it reminded me of a night club as the music was bellowing from inside. We showed up at 755, because we had an 8pm reservation, but we were not seated until 810. Once we sat down it took about 10 minutes before we were greeted. Our server Ebony was great once she did come over. My wife had the short ribs (which was delicious) and I had the salmon (they ran out of chicken due to the Ravens’ players being there before us)The salmon was good, but a little oily. I thought the drinks and food were a little overpriced, but I guess it is right on par with some of the other restaurants in the area. I would not recommend this establishment for a date night, but more for a gathering of friends. The ambiance was not conducive for a romantic night.

    I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time and it did not disappoint. Walking in it’s so nice, the music was just right. They give you this honey drizzle popcorn that is so bomb. My friend and I got the chicken and salmon. I will say I was a bit surprised by how small the portions was. I wished it was more considering the price, but everything was great ! We also ended up getting the lobster Mac and cheese… bomb ! As well as the fried Oreos for desert and they were sooo good ! Unfortunately they only give you two but they were good. Overall great experience though.

    The atmosphere was great. As soon as you walk in the door man, and receptionist was amazing and polite. They helped us take pictures. The waitress was great and checked on us alot. The music was great and the decor were beautiful. The drinks were on point and the appetite were good, especially the calamari. I gave 4/5 only because the crab cake and pasta wasn't good. However my friends loved their food. I would definitely go back though.

    We enjoyed everything about our visit. The atmosphere was amazing as expected! We were greeted by a beautiful spirit at the door. The hostess was very pleasant. Our server was outstanding. She gave a great reference for the food but I came ready to enjoy selections I had my eyes set on. Now to the food...the Challah french toast was sooo good. I had to take the rest home. I have to eat that alone so I can make all types of disrespectful noises. The lobster omelette was full of flavor. My husband enjoyed that greatly. My blackberry mojito was THEE BEST!!! So good I had to do it twice!!! So many glows but only one low. It's incredibly loud in there. You cannot hold a conversation with anyone. Maybe thats the idea. But, I could do without the insanely loud music. Maybe dial it down a bit. The live entertainment was PERFECT!!!! She sang so beautifully. I cannot wait to return.

    Have been here a few times and every single time has been great. But this time trumps all the other times and this is why. COURTNEY is the absolute best. We had a party of 11 and she handled it with no sweat. She had everything covered, we never had to ask twice for anything. Not saying my other servers weren’t good, I’m just saying Courtney was phenomenal. I will request her from now on. The food was also great, but it always is so that’s never a problem. One more thing, get the Branzino. Best Branzino I’ve had

    This place is a whole vibe! I was there for the ‘No Pix After Dark’ Live Podcast interview. The food and drinks was amazing! It’s an absolute MUST that you order the signature cocktail called, “Blk Swan”! Thank me later! I had the Jumbo Crabcake entrée! It was delicious! Especially, the broccoli! OMGOODNESS! I thought I’d never say this but, “the broccoli was seasoned to perfection!” I was served by an awesome waitress. I loved the experience at this restaurant. The music by DJ Allure set the tone, and it was great music! Every song was a “jam!” The decor was gorgeous! Nice lines, sleek, and sexy in a masculine kind of way. However, it still had a bit of softness with the contrasting colors of grey and white against the black. I definitely loved the message and theme of this establishment; and the meaning of the “Blk Swan” being something not necessarily seen as beautiful, but is in a certain way, soft but tough, rising out of a not so ideal situation and surprises all that comes into contact with it to find such beauty in an uncanny place. I will wrap by saying, it’s a beautiful restaurant and I can’t wait to return! I would highly recommend this place for others to check out, and I’ll definitely be back to enjoy with friends!

    The place is decorated nicely. the hostess and our waitress was very nice. The waitress was efficient and informative. We had about a 20 minute wait even with a reservation. Food was just ok, especially for the price. Lamb chops as an appetizer were very good. The shrimp in the shrimp & grits were seasoned well, however the grits were sweet. The sauce on the shrimp & grits was also very sweet. The lake trout was cooked very very hard, to the point of being crumbly. The chicken slider was ok. The place ambience is more of a club setting. Very, very loud music, to the point that it was difficult to hear the waitress or vice versa. I could mot have a conversation with my wife because it was too hard to hear each other. Definitely not a place to have a romantic dinner or to bring an older person to dine. We were there for Mother’s Day Brunch. It seems like something special would have been offered for that day, whether it was a charge for bottomless mimosas, a rose, etc. I’m not sure I am will to try for a dinner experience. The very loud music is a turn off. I assume It is catered to a younger crowd.

    This place is an absolute VIBE!!! Service was exceptional. Arrived late and had to self-seat at bar, but explained the restaurant was not answering the phone to inform of delay in arrival. The manager was empathetic and seated my party. I was so grateful and delighted about the change; I was impressed with their commitment to superior customer service. This place is perfect for grown and sexy absent club scene. Mocktails were rocking. I would definitely recommend.

They were both tasty! We started with the country buttermilk biscuits. The red delicious apple butter was awesome. We also had the fingerling potato casserole and a side of apple smoked bacon which were great. We will definitely be back!

    Overall it was just okay. The good was slightly under seasoned and the atmosphere is more suited for a club than a restaurant. The music was way too loud for conversation and although there is a dress code and my mom was turned away for wearing open towed shoes, I sat near a man whose butt crack and boxer shorts were voidable throughout the whole meal. I liked my server, she was pleasant and attentive but hype really wasn’t worth it. I’m proud to support a black owned business in Baltimore but I won’t be returning.
