I was really shocked to see so many people dining inside. I had to wonder if it was aligned with the COVID protocols given how packed it was. It was uncomfortable even going into the crowded vestibule/lobby to check in, with so many people waiting there and people smoking so close to the entrance.

My husband and I were the only ones sitting outside and they completely forgot about us. Service was very attentive once we complained but disappointing to have to complain in the first place. Also no heat lamps which I have come to expect of the nicer restaurants with outdoor dining these days.

Food was great but overall experience not so much.

We went here for a family birthday. The food was excellent but the service was just OK. I privately talked to the server saying it was someone’s birthday and if they could bring a piece of cake but they completely forgot. Throughout the whole dinner they were slow to check on us. The food was excellent but the overall service was not.

The food was good as usual, but the service was patchy and slow. After finishing dinner, we sat and waited over 20 minutes after our table was cleared for someone to enquire about the check.

I had stated in my reservation that it was a special occasion (birthday). Nobody even mentioned it.

Excellent food and our server was friendly and professional. This was our first time dining there, but will certainly not be the last.
Must try: Filet Mignon with peppercorn sauce, calamari and garlic mashed potatoes.

Eat out 3-5 times a week and you can see not many negative reviews Almost came a couple of weeks back, but didn’t after reading reviews. Changed my mind tonight. READ REVIEWS HERE AND TA. Terrible experience and will never return.

Night starts with 20 minutes at the table without anyone coming over. No menus No drinks No order. Then someone showed up with bread & water. My thought at that point was to leave but hung in there.

Waiter showed. Apologized , finally brought menus so I thought we were good. (then he vanishes!) As rest. pros we Order quickly and request wine list. Had to ask again and received list. Waited another 20-25 minutes. Apps showed. Mozz & tomatoes, & wedge. sophisticated prep items! (side note, wedge somewhat soggy and overdressed).

Finally cleared plates STILL no return to order wine. Now thinking great, I’ll get wine delivered and unopened with my food!

15 minutes later Another waiter shows up, asks if we want another glass of wine. We explained that we’ve been waiting to order wine for 30+ minutes. Spent less then first choice because I Was so annoyed. Wine finally shows.

Now we wait, wait, & wait for our mains. Steak in a steak house, Another huge prep item! My wife, that never complains, asks for manager. Manager never shows even by the end of dinner! Wait some more. Still no food.

Finally steaks show 1 hr and 35 Minutes since our res. time. Horrendous. Steaks are pretty good but at this point so soured it’s hard to recover.

Skip desert. Espresso for me. check. After these complaints comped my espresso & two white wines. STILL NO MANAGER VIST PER OUR REQUEST. tipped 20 percent on tab, wine & tax (was going to short tip because of service, basically gave my “comp” to the staff.) Would have been happier if Mgr came over, listened

Wine prices? Ridiculous. 175 for a 60 retail wine! (1,500 btls home, Know prices). Some wines triple!

Net? Read reviews, go elsewhere. Expect more at this price point

Very buggy. They should be more concerned about bugs and use repellents. The food is just fair, nothing exciting and very overpriced for the quality. Social distancing could be better.

Honestly, very disappointing. Got the bone-in Ribeye. Charred on the outside and undercooked inside. Overly fatty and even grisly. Bacon was also mediocre. Not what we’ve come to expect from them.

The food does not disappoint, although I probably won’t order the Tomato/buffalo mozzarella salad again. The wedge is a much bette rejoice. The biggest disappointment was how slow our particular service was. Our server may have been brought out from inside but we barely saw him and everything was very delayed. 😢 We are thankful Blackstone has survived this pandemic and continues on. We will come again.

The wait staff and service was excellent. Very polite and attentive. We ordered the Porterhouse for 2 medium but it came out medium well, closer to well. Definitely overcooked, but it was flavorful and the meat was still very tender. So no need to return it or make a huge fuss. We dined outside, and it was pretty nice despite being on the Post Road. The staff made our anniversary enjoyable. Thank you for a fine meal and an enjoyable evening.

Immediately seated by the manager, who was wonderful. Our booth was perfect and it made us feel like we were in a special part of the restaurant. Our server was fabulous and offered great suggestions from the wine to our dinner. We had the clams casino and crab cake for appetizers. Crab cake was all crab, little breading! It was perfect. For dinner, we had the Tomahawk for two. Steak was cooked medium and it was delicious. We shared lava cake for dessert, great way to end the night. Our server was attentive throughout the night as well as other staff. I can't to go back again and bring my friends.

Thank you Blackstones for a wonderful date night!!
