ambiance, food were great - steaks are always wonderful. service was not good - had the sense our waiter was new or just not good as many others stepped in to (1) provide menus, (2) pour wine, (3) replace cutlery - often at our request. been there several times before and service was awesome

Took the family out for Valentine’s Day, appetizers and steaks were great, our waiter Caesar was awesome. They seated us near the bar which was extremely loud and the constant F-bombs being dropped by the bartender and bar flys throughout the evening is totally unacceptable.

Blackstones is a great steak house in the tradition of New York city steak houses. Loud, crowded and with waiters with an attitude, only less so. The food, steak and seafood was excellent. We have eaten here many times and noted that some things have changed. The house salad was a different mix of greens. cottage fries were no longer on the menu and that was disappointing. The cheesecake at desert was slightly off flavored. We still enjoyed the meal and will return.

Classic steakhouse with the most welcoming and attentive staff. Our surf and turf and bone-in strip were cooked to PERFECTION. Creamed spinach was incredible. Highly recommend to everyone. Cannot wait to return.

Our waiter Caesar was great. So was everyone else who worked there. The seating is comfortable and the restaurant was very quiet. The food was only average. The cold seafood platter was good but the surf and turf which consisted of filet mignon and lobster was average. 8 oz lobster tail was overcooked and grilled veal chop was bland. Have been to many steakhouses in NYC which was much better. But again the SERVICE was EXCELLENT!!

We went to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Online and word of mouth reviews were good. We figured we’d try something new.

We were seated in bar area , at their suggestion, because main room was very loud with a few large groups. There was a private party hanging out at bar that we were told were moving to a private room very soon. An hour later guests from this party were still at the bar and literally leaning on empty chairs at our table. Then same party opened bar emergency door and started to smoke. We had to complain 3 times before anyone did something.
Our meal took over an hour to arrive. My husband’s steak was raw after he made it clear he wanted it prepared medium. My Chilean seabass tasted frozen and defrosted. Watery and mushy.
French fries were great😁

We will never return. They just didn’t seem to care.

Amazing food and service. We went during what was supposed to be a snow storm so it wasn’t as busy as normal. The service and food were just as great as it is on a busy night. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and they helped to make us feel special with a decorated dessert. They also brought us some limoncello on the house

We were visiting my younger son in CT and our older son from AL was also there. It was our older son’s 30th birthday, so we thought Blackstones would be the perfect restaurant based on other reviews. Everything was perfect. Caesar, our waiter was terrific and servers who assisted him were also great. From our starting salads to the steaks, the food was awesome. They also have a great wine list. Will be sure to dine there again when visiting our son.

Ordered the tomahawk steak, the outside was very burnt, the steak sauce kind of saved it. They came by to refill our beers just once, very slow and inattentive service, I would have had 4/5 more drinks, but they didn’t come back regularly. I had to ask 3 times for my 2nd drink...

Surprisingly good kitchen, few misses from the menu. Excellent wine list and pricing. Waitstaff and manager relatively inexperienced. Net, net...a good steak, super oysters, apps and sides ok...choice wines...be patient with the staff.

Great place for a great steak dinner. I had the surf and turf which included a lobster tale. The food was excellent although a little pricey at $54. Good creamed spinach side dish. Great lava cake with vanilla ice cream dessert.

This is a great place for a great steak. They are doing some cosmetic improvements to make the place a little more inviting. This is not easy. It is an older establishment in a strip mall kind of neighborhood.

First time we brought friends. One of them got a miniature sea bass. I got a miniature filet mignon. We paid a lot of money for these tiny portions. I don’t think I even got a center cut. The aged flavor was missing for the first time from both my steak and my wife’s porterhouse. In fact, my wife’s steak had an off taste. We have eaten there enough to know the difference. You even changed the flatbread. This is the second time in three weeks my filet was tiny. Seems like something is going down. At these prices we can’t afford to take a chance on the quality we used to get from this restaurant. We didn’t complain at the time because we were embarrassed in front of our friends. All very disappointing.

We are blessed to have such a great steakhouse in our town. It's not a cheap night out, but it certainly is worth it. At our table there was steak, Dover sole, shrimp, clams and a delicious burrata salad. The ambiance is lovely (even good jazz playing in the background), and the service is excellent. We look forward to returning to Blackstones.
