The small plates were amazing. We had the whipped ricotta and the heritage meatballs. Would go back just for those. Love great local places!

Great gastro pub with inventive cocktails, small but tasty menu. Who knew ricotta on bread could taste so good???!!!

Pasta is homemade and a must have.

It’s a bit pricey but worth it. The place has a nice NYC vibe. It may not be your cup of tea but it is a must try.

This was our second visit to Blackbird. The food was excellent. We shared (2 couples) 9 small plates and 2 desserts and was very full by the meals end. Some of our favorites--kale salad, whipped ricotta, mushrooms, scallops. Our least favorite was a spaghetti dish. Not that it was bad the other dishes were just seasoned delicously and so tasty. The restaurant has a very "pubby" feel. It is dark. Not losts of ambience. We were there for the food and company which were both excellent.

First time at Blackbird. Food and drinks were very good. However, the whole time having dinner with a friend that I haven’t seen in months, we felt very rushed throughout the dinner. As we were finishing, the hostess came over to tell us that they reserved that table, rushing us to finish up and pay. In fact, they came over about 3 times to collect the payment when we didn’t even finish our drinks and look at the bill. Meanwhile, there were other tables open to sit people. Very confused by that.

Chris is a great chef and his food is impeccable and consistent. The front of the house is also managed to perfection and the staff is awesome.

I’m obsessed over this place and recommend it to all that know quality food. The Berkshire meatballs are in my dreams daily.

Go eat there!!

Very interesting but somewhat limited menu. I started with one of the house craft cocktail specialties, a bourbon
old fashioned. It was absolutely perfect:The best I've ever had.
The salads and small plates were also exceptional. The salad we shared was the one with the figs: it was perfectly dressed and balanced. We also shared the meatballs, which were also very good.The rigatoni was not very exciting, done in a light and simple marinara sauce. ( I would have chosen something more exciting). We split the steak (a "large" plate ... but not so large) and that was perfectly done and quite tasty. Our server was very pleasant and attentive
My one regret is that I didn't have a 2nd old fashioned (I knew that I was the driver)
MAKE A RESERVATION! seating is somewhat limited.

This is a real special place to dine. Does not look like much from the outside, however Blackbird is very quaint inside & an outstanding venue to dine.
The menu is fairly small & the small plates make it easy to share several dishes. Please try everything you find interesting. You will be amazed at the preparation & flavors. Every dish we had was fresh, creative & delicious.
Service is welcoming & Andrea was very helpful & pleasant. I plan to take friends there again when I’m in town. It’s one of those places you just have to try.
Really Excellent.

This was our 2nd time to Blackbird Kitchen & Cocktails. We were 2 couples, heading to a Jones Beach concert, & thought we’d have an early dinner this past Sunday. Food rates at 4 stars.

We were greeted at the door & shown to our table. It was 5:30 PM, so the restaurant hadn’t yet filled up (but it did shortly thereafter!). Our server came to the table promptly to take drink orders. All of the drinks were very good as was the 2nd round.

The biggest negative is they take an unreasonably long time to serve the food, even with reminders. We had the same experience the last time we ate there but had all evening so it wasn’t a big deal. This time it was.

After drinks were served, service became less on point but with a little effort you were able to attract someone’s attention. 3 of us had burgers, and enjoyed every bite. While fries are included they don’t offer sweet potato fries, which would’ve been each of our preference. Hint to Restaraunt! My husband ordered the pasta, Sweet Corn Agnolotti, which he said was very tasty but was an embarrassingly small portion. None of us are very big eaters but this was so ridiculous that I wound up giving him ½ of my meal!

I still recommend Blackbird Kitchen, but suggest not ordering the sweet corn agnolotti when you’re hungry & not going when you’re pressed for time!

The food was excellent and the drink menu was above and beyond, but not overwhelming like some places. We had five dishes total, all of them meeting or exceeding our expectations.

The staff was very friendly, the only “negative” of the experience was that we were there for almost 3 hours. It was a night where it worked out for us, but could see it being a problem if you didn’t have all night to spare.

Overall a great experience, we will definitely return.
