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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The wife and I came her for dinner on Saturday. I have seen this restaurant for awhile and never fancied it due to it being a basement restaurant, thinking it would be dark and claustrophobic. I was wrong! I was very surprised how light and comfortable it was. it has a very upmarket feel about it compared to other restaurants in the area.
Staff were fast and friendly and the food was very good. The steak is without doubt the best we have had in town and was more than worth the money. We will be definitely be returning.

Come for a bite to eat before going to the theatre to watch a show, we were running 15 minutes late so called ahead to let them know and was no problems, decided to take on the 20oz special, very tasty and didn't need to eat for the next day! Staff also lovely.

Excellent all round, the only thing that let's it down is the smoke from the steaks on the stone, extractor fans are really needed to prevent eyes stinging and clothes Smelling of cooking
