    I traveled to Baltimore this week on business and a local referred BLK SWAN to me. I pulled up the restaurant on my phone and was immediately impressed with the concept, décor, and menu items. I made reservations for two, but showed up solo and sat at the bar. WOW! What a great place. For starters, Summer, my bartender was amazing and very helpful. I asked the opinions of random employees to see what they liked on the menu and I used the commonly liked items as my starting point. My crab cake appetizer was awesome and reminded me that I was in Maryland. The braised beef melted in my mouth just like Summer said it would. My drinks were delicious and the conversations I had with the staff were priceless. Lets just say we got to know each other well. The history and concept of the restaurant was impressive. I'm planning on taking my entire team back with me. What a perfect spot and will ALWAYS be on my must do list when I come to town. BTW... Ran into the chef outside; Stellar gentlemen. Top notch

    The ambiance of this place is a whole vibe.. Dope AF. However, the menu is Extremely misleading. They need to remove the S's off of The Cinnamon Rolls and Biscuits.. You only get one for 13$. Not sharable at all.. Very small portions. I would definitely go back for drinks but the food is a no for me.

    I waited 35 minutes just to get my soda another 30 minutes for my appetizer, that I only received #1 of because they ran out of lobster which is understandable. My entre came out another 30 minutes later with half the food because I was missing a side, as I waited for my side me and my husband ate my entre while he waited for his food that never came. I ordered a cocktail never received it. We got fed up and wanted to leave the waitress brought us the check and ALL the food we never received was on the check SMDH. I asked to speak to the manager ( mind you the owner was standing there the whole time working the room with the people they knew and gave all their attention and staffing to the retired football player Ed Reed, after speaking to the manager she took the bill and guess what the food came to the table after two hours. Worst Birthday!

    This was my first time at Black Swan. I was really looking forward to this but the service was horrible. We had a 12:30 reservation and was not seated until after1pm. I asked mgmt about the wait at 12:45pm and noticed no one had food on the tables. Everyone was talking and jamming to the DJ and violinist. He admitted they do have issues with people not leaving promptly after dining but they do have a max 2 hr min to dine. I said ok and we decided to wait a little longer. At 1pm our table was ready and we followed the waiter to a room that was closed off with MULTIPLE empty tables. We were seated and forgotten about after 15 min the manager walked by and we motioned him to come over. He knew from the look on my face that no one had come over to take our order yet and he began to take our order. Unfortunately he couldn’t answer our questions about the menus and we had to wait for the waiter anyway. The food ended up be being pretty good. We had the crab and lobster omelette, the Oreo pancake was just ok and the lobster croissant sandwich was really good. My issue is management was fully aware of our issue and never offered to make it right. Can we get you a drink or a side with your meal or an apology for the wait. A restaurant can not be great food and ambiance alone. Great customer service is just as important. Overall the ambiance and food is worth the trip but lack Swan must do better with your customer service

    Really nice place to go for a date night with your sweetie. Casual wear. Not too crowded (I went around 1030pm). The staff were quick to seat you if you had a reservation. Food was very delicious, nice and hot, and fast to come out. There is a DJ inside, but I liked how the music was not extremely loud to the point you had to shout everything to the people at your table. Very nice place, I enjoyed myself.

    It was amazing. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and interpersonal. My waitress was top tier, she checked on us constantly not overbearing but enough to make sure we were taken care of. We will return again. It feels good to spend your hard earned money on a business that prides themselves on making their patrons feel welcomed. Can’t wait to return.

    I went for a date night and everything was ok! I was expecting more elegance but it was more like a lounge. The food was also ok, came out fast and hot but the taste didnt 'WOW' me. The fried calamari was particularly good I enjoyed that. The braised short rib was a bit sweet and chewy, the truffle mashed potato (pomme puree) had so much truffle flavor that it over powered the taste of the potato. The lamb chops were good but I bit on a few pieces of pepper corn. For dessert we ordered the fried oreo. These weren't as good as I thought they would've been either. There was way too much batter on them and instead of two big "oreos" with all that batter maybe they should do three and less batter. Overall it was an OK experience, not somewhere I would revisit.

    I love love loved our experience at Black Swan! Everything was perfect from the food to the service to the ambiance and I love that they have a dress code because everyone looked so nice which made our dining experience even better. We celebrated my birthday there and I felt very special!! Our waiter, Anaya (hopefully I spelled her name right!), was simply amazing. I came from out of town to visit Black Swan for my birthday and I was super satisfied, not disappointed at all. I am already looking forward to visiting again hopefully soon and often.

    Overpacked! Quality of the service was horrible, but how can you be mad at the waitress when he/she is clearly tending to 15+ tables. When your server FINALLY makes their way to your table, just make sure you put in at least 3 drink orders, order your appetizer and main course, might as well order your dessert too, and ask for the check all at the same time. There’s no telling when the server will be back. The food wasn’t that great, especially considering the wait. Drinks were mediocre, they must of ran out of champagne because the “bottomless mimosas” turned into straight orange juice. And

    When we arrived we were early so we sat at the bar and ordered drinks. The young lady that served us at the bar (blonde wig) wasn't FRIENDLY at all but made a strong drink. We wanted to try some different drinks, but decided not to pay for the treatment. We had to get someone else to get her attention, she was definitely close enough to see us waving our hands for attention. When it was time for our scheduled reservation we reminded the host that we were at the bar still waiting to be seated at a table. We went back to the bar and noticed people coming in and being seated. We waited about 15 minutes or so, then went back a second time to see what was going on, then we were seated about 45 minutes into our scheduled appointment. I want to add that the hostess was very friendly and customer service oriented. We ordered a couple of things from the menu the presentation was nice, the taste was good, but average. The waitress was very friendly and her customer service was on point. This restaurant adds gratuity so I'm guessing that's why the young lady at the bar had a bad disposition, she's going to get paid regardless. This music was nice, the young lady singing was nice, but the music was louder than she was. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was nice. We will come back again for dinner to see if anything changes.

    The only thing I didn’t like or appreciate was we spent a lot of money and still wasn’t full. When we left we were still hungry. The portion size was very small. We shouldn’t have still been hungry after leaving this place. Had to stop at five guys to get something to fill us up‼️ Too much money for a little bit of food

    Our reservation was at 9:15 pm on a Sunday. It was also raining outside so it was hardly crowded at all. We just had to order by 9:45 and leave by 11 for closing! I loved it. Wish we could’ve taken our time and staid a little longer.

    Great ambiance and service, and the food was fresh but everything…and I mean everything was overpriced. I got an appetizer that consisted of 2 tacos…for $27. A flight of casamigos for $38. Just too much in my opinion. It’s also way too loud in there to have a conversation you can actually hear.
