Always consistently very good food. Full house on a random Wednesday evening in February - this sort of popularity is a real sign of a restaurant that draws people in. Relatively short seasonal food menu with tasty options, & extensive drinks menu with choices to suit varying preferences. I'll continue to return.

As always Frank is a gentleman and Chris is a great chef.

The new cuke salad was fantastic as well as the pasta and shrimp. All unique and different.

Service was great and the new cocktail list was spectacular.

I like that the menu changes seasonally. It's nice to try different items each time I go. Cocktails are unique and fun. I had the gin and tonic etc. etc. The spaghetti cacio e pepe is awesome! Always a great experience!

The food and service were excellent, I liked that it was adults only at the time we were in there. It was smaller than I expected, but we did not feel cramped at our table.

My boyfriend and I had a great experience here! We were seated right away, the restaurant is small but you’re not on top of each other and the noise level is low. Our waitress was great! We ordered the whipped ricotta and meatballs for our appetizers and both were so delicious! Whipped ricotta is def worth the hype. My boyfriend got the burger and I got the spaghetti, both great choices. Would definitely go again.

The food is terrific and the service attentive. I would have given the restaurant 5 stars except the parking is a real issue. There is a severe lack of parking. A great restaurant in a problem location.

The restaurant is a bit on the small side, our table was near the door (in the winter). The lighting is pretty low (probably so you don't see how tiny the portions are). Some things were appropriately priced while others were off the wall expensive for what you were getting.

Our waitress was very pleasant and upbeat, offering advice for ordering (which we were glad we followed). Food didn't come out nearly as fast as we'd expect, given the cooking time should be really short for such a small portion.

While somewhat tasty, the Duo of LI Duck ($26) was simply 2 small strips of duck (about 1"x1"x4"), a small splat of sweet potato with another 2 tablespoons of duck meat. Couldn't hardly taste any pomegranate in the molasses. Felt that was a rip off.

Much better selection was the Prince Edward Island Mussels ($12). Perfect combination of garlic, onion, and a few chili peppers. Either this portion is normalized to other restaurants or someone thought it was a double order. Very tasty, and had 2 pieces of bread on top, great for sopping up the remaining sauce. I'd get that again if I go.

I saw some orders nearby tables were getting... for instance the Spaghetti ($18). Description is 'cacio e pepe' on the menu... but that's just cheese and pepper. I don't think it was even a full pound of spaghetti, handmade there or not.

All told, 2 of us ordered an item apiece and a beer apiece, paid $56... and proceeded to go to Fridays to finish eating dinner. Really, I'm not kidding.

We love going to Blackbird. Been about 4 or 5 times. Their vibe is great. Food is amazing. Ricotta with honey on bread is our favorite. Also the lettuce and date salad and Cacio Pepe pasta is great. Best flourless chocolate cake ever. Light creamy and not too sweet.

Since I moved to the area, Blackbird has been my go to spot. The Bartenders Elizabeth and Allie are excellent. They have a great arsenal of cocktails, that will keep things exciting. The food menu is always changing as well. I’ve never had a bad meal here and I’m sure I never will. The duck, octopus and scallops are some of my personal favorites but everything is excellent. The chef does a wonderful job with the dishes. I highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions and will continue to frequent here.

Food certainly better than the service. Waitress could not get our drink order correct and the pricing not justified by product.

The food was good only thing there was barely any food on the plate. I’ve eaten at tapas restaurants and this was slim to none on the plate and very very pricey. We all walked out after dinner still hungry

Always an impeccable dining experience. My favorite restaurant on Long Island. Highlights of the meal were the octopus, scallops and mussels. I linked the plate clean because the sauces were so delicious. Can’t wait to go back

Loved our entire meal and the cocktails we ordered! The meatballs, whipped ricotta bread, and tempura cauliflower were all delicious starters; we ordered the cauliflower three times because our group enjoyed it so much! The burger, fluke, and strip were also very good and I would definitely go back to have more of the small plates!

Service is great. Kudos to frank and Chris.
