Never met a better server than Mohammed or had better veal chops than we did last night at this lovely dinner restaurant.. Even the sauce that was offered for the veal chops was the best sauce I have ever used. It was fruity and just hit the spot. Can't wait to go back. The parking spot just outside the front door capped a beautiful night on the town and made it that more lovely since there was a cold breeze.

My steak was over cooked and by the time it came out it was already cold, as well as, the baked potato being rock hard. My waitress came to the table only to take our order and never came back. Go to Capital Grille instead

We dined here just after Stamford moved back into the COVID "red zone, meaning reduced restaurant capacity to 50%. However, their idea of moving to 50% capacity meant squeezing all of their patrons into the bar area and closing the main dining room, which defeats the entire purpose. They filled nearly all the tables and booths, meaning no distancing. When we arrived it wasn't crowded so we didn't give it much thought, then as they started filling up we realized they were not planning to distance dining groups at all. By the time we realized this, our food had already been ordered and was being served. The waiters' masks were often below their noses, and several times we even saw their mouths. This had been one of our few "go to" places during these times because of its spaciousness. Never again. Frankly we were horrified. I emailed them privately after our experience but never received a response.

I very rarely write reviews, and the few times I do it's usually because the restaurant, hotel, etc. was exceptional. However, people need to know how this restaurant is currently conducting its business during these times, then they can make an individual choice as to how safe or unsafe they would feel.

Sat outside due to COVID concerns. Street was very loud and no real ambiance at all.

Service was not what is expected at a top notch steak house. Level of detail was lacking.

Don’t see myself going back anytime soon.

Lots of people without masks moving around the bar and through the dining room. Steak was wrong, ordered NY strip and got a bone in rib eye - charged for NY Strip. Both apps came out wrong and were quickly corrected We have dined here before and were pleased - this was not a good experience.

Our server Shirley and the floor Manager were great and very attentive. Show a strong interest in serving us and all guest with their knowledge and assistance.

One thing they didn't acknowledge was our 54th wedding anniversary which was on my Open table reservation.

I would not come back nor I would recommend this place until administration is changed.

DETAILS

- Server took orders without masks on occasions, which made one of the individuals at our party concerned to the point of returning the food
- Server had a rude attitude rushing people into making decisions
- From appetizers to food it took about 1 hour of wait time
- Food came in cold
- Food did not come all together
- At the end, when we asked for the manager no one seemed to take responsibility
- Finally, someone came to hear our concern and no action was taken (we think it was not the actual manager)

Food was very good, it was Restaurant Week and Blackstone's blew away their competition. Varied menu and food still cooked perfectly. Special kudos to Jasmina (s?) the bartender who also was our server, she was great.

our second HUGE disappointment at blackstones. never got food though everyone elses looked lovely whenever it did arrive to their table. feb 14 we waited over an hour for our appetizer, didnt get our drinks until after that arrived. aug 22 we gave it another shot, horrific waited an hour for our reservation 815 p arrived at 745p just to have our table given to someone who got there after us. waited an additional 15 mins now going on 930 pm and when approaching the host the phone rang and she told my bf hold on and took call so we just left. terrible every time we have tried.

We waited 45 minutes even thought we had a RESERVATION. There was zero social distancing going on through out the restaurant. We eventually gave up waiting and left.

Took over 3 hours to complete our meal. The first server took our drink orders. 20 mins later another server told us our original server was crying so he had to take our order. We ordered the restaurant week menu and it took at least 30 mins between each course. The food was good. When we finally received our dessert... (after seeing a barrage of beautifully plated desserts pass) it was a frozen chocolate cake from a box and a pre-made cheesecake dumped on a plate. No garnishes. Definitely not the chocolate mousse we ordered. No explanations, just dumped on the table. No apologies, barely any attention.

We went for our anniversary and although they knew it, no special touches were added like they do in other local steak houses. The food and atmosphere was very nice but our waiter was inattentive.

My sister and I visited Stamford for the weekend. We came to Blackstone on our last night as suggested by the Concierge at our hotel. We were not disappointed. We both started off with the Caesar She had the rack of Lamb, while I had the filet with lemon pepper shrimp as our entree. We shared the creamed spinach and mash potatoes for sides. As desert we had the lemon sorbet and carrot cake. Everything was delicious!

Absolutely HORRIBLE experience. By far one of the worst experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. The waiter was absent the entire meal. We waited over an hour to get our entrees and ordered no appetizers. Both of our meals and sides came out cold and when we told the manager, he refused to acknowledge my presence because I am a woman and would only speak to my boyfriend. He was insistent that we still needed to pay for everything even though we didn't eat anything. In the end, he still made us pay for half the bill.

We didn’t have our order taken until 20 min later. We waited for our food for over an hour - the kitchen was behind and our waitress just kept apologizing. We had to take our dinner to go we were too upset to continue eating there. It was our first time out to dinner in 6 months with a baby at home. Nothing was done to comp an appetizer or anything. We had an issue at capital grille for lunch and they comped our entire meal. This place is disappointing. The tables are also too close together and not properly social distanced. 3 people to the table left of us asked to be moved bc of the close proximity. We wanted to give this place a chance and now it’s off our list. We tipped properly and wished they showed the same courtesy. This was our last transaction there.

We were out to dinner with 7 family members to celebrate a birthday and what should have been a really nice evening turned out to be long and disappointing time. We were seated outdoor and though the they were close to capacity with all their tables outside, the service was very slow. It took so long for appetizers and our meal to finally come out. Our server also got two of the entree orders wrong and just tried to ply us with another glass of wine to smooth things over. When the check arrived, they didn’t even take off an entree from the bill or anything. We had to complain before they discounted part of an entree and took off a drink, which roughly came to the cost of an entree. It was just an overall disappointing experience.

Popped in for Sunday dinner; ate inside it was too hot outside. Server was perfect, was there when we were finishing a drink to ask if we needed another plus she had a great personality. The food: perfect! Steaks came perfectly cooked as did the sides and the short rib was super.
