Another great night with my love at Black Bull. Can’t wait for COVID-19 restrictions to be over so we can go a little early and have a cocktail at the bar before dinner.

Beyond amazing - we went for Christmas Day dinner, and the staff was beyond phenomenal and the food was delicious. We weren’t rushed at all, and truly enjoyed dining experience. Couldn’t recommend more highly.

Excellent food, drinks and service. My wife and I have been here before and we decided to return for our anniversary. It was a pleasant reprieve during these Covid times.

The waitstaff went above and beyond, however, the food blah. Everything we ordered was bland, tasteless and unfamiliar. The fried calamari had no taste whatsoever. The shrimp scampi had an unfamiliar sauce. There was no lemon taste, zero garlic taste, and no butter. I honestly could not tell what I was eating. The key lime pie tasted like meringue on a plate, that’s it ! Highly disappointed in the food, we wanted to like this place. Very expensive for bland, tasteless food. I hope for their sake they had a temporary cook.

Outstanding meal. My wife had a Bronzino and I had a Dover sole that were filleted table side. Both dishes were just perfectly prepared. Service was excellent and not overbearing. Our first trip there was last New Years Eve and that’s never an easy night out in a restaurant. Last night we decided to try it again and are so glad we did.

Awesome experience from the wait staff right up to the owners. Food was delicious, we started with shrimp arrabiata and oysters & had the tomahawk for 2 with creamed spinach & asparagus. Everything was excellent, will definitely be back.

The veal Milanese was paper thin bordering on dry. It was huge, better to serve one thicker piece. I left most of it not worth wrapping to take home. No way to heat something so thin. The salad part was fine. The service was excellent. The plate with cheese olives and peppers was lovely.

i ordered a tomahawk for two and basically got a ribeye - it didnt even have the tomahawk bone. and if it was for two they should double check what they are buying because i wolfed it down in 5 minutes. The service was great the people were very accommodating but the food was ...ehh for the amount i paid. Listen if you want a decent steak and not travel far this is the place. but for 300 bucks i could get a much better meal somewhere else

Service was top notch, very attentive and yet not annoying. Lobster Bisque was a bit water down but taste was there and good, even better if was a bit creamer. Calamari was fried perfectly and taste good as expected. Tom Mohawk Steak for 2 was surprisingly a bit over cook. But the flavor was there. Will try again next time. Sides were flavorful and just right amount. Didn’t give a 5 star only because the steak was over done but definitely would come again.

We were group of 7, 4 adults and 3 kids. They did not have burgers or kids menu but were willing to bring it from the bar, except they ran out. Appetizers and desserts were very good. Service was slow, we waited forever for our food, steak was not good at all. Medium well came very very well done dry, not worth the price.

Excellent! Very good wine list and cocktails. I’m beyond happy and impressed with the food and service! As appetizers I had avocado salad with shrimps from specials, the best one ever and my date had buffalo mozzarella.For dinner I had Bronzino just the way I liked it and my date had T-bone steak cooked to perfection! For the end we had homemade Cream Brule,tiramisu and cappuccinos! Again so fresh and so good! Our waiter was very professional and attentive! Interior design is very beautiful and cozy. Hostess made us feel very welcome from the beginning and checked on us after we got our dinner which is another great thing. All the guests were dressed very elegant so it’s good to know before you go! I’m definitely coming back and I highly recommend it!
