Walking in we thought the restaurant seemed lovely, nicely decorated with cool art work on the walls and good music at just the right volume level. Staff were friendly and polite however, we all had wine and when they arrive the bottles were just placed on our table, no offer to try the wine first or having your glass poured for you. 3 of us ordered fillet steak for £27 which id consider a fair price for a good piece of fillet steak, however this was not a good steak at all, mine was fatty and chewy and flat more like a rump than a fillet and all 3 were over cooked (we asked for medium rare and recieved over medium cooked with hardly any pink in the middle). When we pointed this out to the waitress and i demonstrated cutting through my tough overcooked steak i just received an "oh sorry about that" with no offer of a new steak or discount from the bill. If i had paid £15 for this steak it wouldn't have been an issue but for £27 id expect much better. Its a shame as this could be a really great steak restaurant if they worked on their pricing or just improved the quality of their steak and made sure the chef can cook the steak how the customer asks for it. On a good note the people that didnt have steak enjoyed their carbonara and the starters were good.
Service was quick and food lovely just didn’t like the way my partners burger and chips were presented on a slate would have preferred a plate.
Great friendly and quick service, the food was amazing, best piece of steak we've ever eaten
I booked a table here for my partners birthday. We both love our steak but I usually eat mine at Miller and Carter. As we were staying at a caravan close by for a few nights I had done some research online for a decent steak restaurant and was happy with previous reviews.
Upon entering, we were greeted by a member of staff who had read the table request I made at the time of booking and showed us to our table but it was dark in that corner of the restaurant with no light. Although I’d requested not to sit near the main doors, bar or toilets-I didn’t want to sit at a table with no light. I wouldn’t have even been able to see the menu.
We ended up moving to another table.
The portion sizes for the starters were generous. We chose 2 each and were quite full with these alone and ended up skipping a main meal to just having a desert each. Including drinks-the meal was just under £25.00 each plus I gave the gentleman serving us a tip.
The macaroni cheese was extremely bland and completely tasteless. It had no seasoning at all and tasted of nothing. It was awful. I also didn’t like how over cooked the pasta was. It looked like baby food in all honesty.
It’s not solid how I expected it to be and was just really horrible. I wouldn’t recommend it at all and would never ever order it again.
The steak bites were consumed by my partner. The steak was undercooked and blood was on his plate. We weren’t asked how we liked our steak which should always be done when ordering. My partner chose to eat them and not make a fuss but I declined.
The sticky wings were great. Possibly the best item ordered. The garlic bread with cheese was also good.
I specified that this was a birthday booking but I might as well have not bothered as there was no mention of it being his birthday which was disappointing. Why ask the person booking the table what the occasion is if you then don’t bother to acknowledge it?
It was an “ok” meal but I would go somewhere else next time.
Excellent food, great service, good quality of food! Will definitely return 😊 hidden jem!
Amazing restaurant with the most delicious food! I loved that I was able to cook the steak to my preference on the stone very good experience, service was great and staff very welcoming nothing seemed to much very refreshing to see.
Already can’t wait to go back highly recommended!!
Only had a starter so can't really comment on the food. Waited an hour for two medium rare steaks then left hungry. Restaurant wasn't that busy but staff seemed more bothered about serving the birthday table behind us (who arrived after us and got their food before we left. Quite annoying as I'd booked the restaurant for MY birthday dinner.
Lovely restaurant, food was fantastic. Really enjoyable evening for date night.
Amazing food and service. Our first visit and we were not disappointed.
Food was fantastic a beautiful place highly recommend defiantly going again
Had a lovely evening for our anniversary the staff were lovely and the food was excellent will be going back again
We recommend to anyone lovely place to eat
Wow what a place. Food fantastic it was my wife's birthday so we had steaks that we cook ourselves at the table on a hot stone a first for us .Cloe or waitress told us how to do it the meat was so tender and full of flavour. Fantastic Cloe was fantastic thank you .Geoff/Sandy
Enjoyed the food. Good selection of cocktails and the staff were very attentive. Will be visiting again.
We love the Black Rock, Chloe the manger is amazing!!!
Rump surf and turf was tender and lovely, very friendly staff, we'll be back soon.
Received a nice friendly welcome upon arrival, waitress was new but said the right thing by going to get the answers to our question. Relaxed, friendly environment and great food. My only negative feedback would be the use of 1 hand towel in the toilet instead of individual cloths or hand dryer
Perfect meal. Staff very attentive and very willing to help. Would recommend to everybody. My friends were extremely impressed and have said they will return. Thank you Blackrock wonderful start to our evening.
Pleasant surroundings good food friendly staff.
Great food as always x staff were always there to help you x will be coming back again and again x
Amazing food, amazing service and had a wonderful time all round on Mother’s Day. We can’t thank our waiter enough he was absolutely amazing and the hot Lava Rock to cook your steak on, ingenious! Will definitely recommend all our family and friends to pay you a visit.
First time eating here and will definitely be coming again. Loved how welcoming they were with my little boy.
We has a lovely meal , the food , service and staff was perfect however it was cold . There is no heating so it seems so you feel cold and have to keep your coats on while eating which is a shame.
Starters where average but the main course was excellent. The wine I felt was very expensive ... nigh on £20 for a bottle of £7 Zinfandel. No draught beer only bottled beer. A. £79 bill with £35 being a bottle of wine, 2 bottles of soda water and 2 bottles of bud. Will go back as the steak was lovely.
3rd time to Black Rock and its now my favorite restaurant. Totally outstanding food tried the 20oz steak and def not disappointed
Had a great night out, lovely staff and really enjoyed the food!
Lovely food and atmosphere. Think the chardonnay is very over priced considering it is a super market one
Superb night out, 2nd time we've been to the restaurant and still outstanding, the meal was out of this world and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good night out
Excellent service & excellent food. Highly recommend
Service and food both excellent, definitely going back.
Veg that was stated didn't arrive with main course and we had to ask for it which was then cooked separately.
Xmas menu pricey.
Good steak on stone
Was really impressed with my first visit to Black rock restaurant service was great staff was very welcoming and friendly, The food was amazing!! Will definitely be going back.
Excellent food at a decent price. Very attentive, efficient and friendly staff. Gets quite a smokey and blue atmosphere when the steaks on the lava rock are served up, but disperses fairly quickly. Not too good for disabled customers as there are a number of stairs down to the restaurant to negotiate. Overall, very happy with the food and service and will definitely go again.
Hi first visit to black rock . Greeted by two very nice girls. Made to feel very welcome.
Had a great meal with my wife. First time I had steak on a stone it was excellent .
Would go back hopefully in the near future. It was a great experience
THANKS DOUG & LINDA.
Outstanding food and service in a beautiful restaurant, I can’t recommend it highly enough, it’s a must for steak lovers.
The food is out of this world extremely tasty and a great experience, I have now been twice and will definitely go again. I really highly recommend this place to anyone, that wants something different because having steak on the stone makes the experience great fun.
We have been a few times now and love the place, the staff are friendly but not in your face or over the top, the food is amazing. They are happy to help, the first time we went we wanted the onion rings really crispy, and they just got on with it, this last time they asked if we would like to move tables to a quieter part for the restaurant as they were not busy. I really really do like the place.
First visit to the Black rock and not disappointed, will definitely be going back again for the steak on stone, can cook it just how you like it.. Brightly lit restaurant, friendly staff and modern atmosphere. Great place to go for a meal out close to the sea front.
Amazing food, really professional service. If I’m honest we booked through Open table but don’t think we would’ve gone in if we had just walked past. So glad we did one of the best meals we’ve had and we’ve eaten at some really nice steakhouses. Young lad Tom who served us was really well mannered and professional the whole time. Would definitely recommend.
Best steak I had. We ordered the 20 ounces steak to share and the meat was glorious. Service was very good. Only small criticism will be room gets very smokey
Was looking forward to coming here. The steaks are the stars of the show and the starters were lovely, we had the wings and bruschetta, Its well worth paying the extra for the big steaks, they were beautifully cooked.
