First time @ Blackbird, we will definitely be back. Salad w/ dates , scallops , wings and angolatti all winners. Our waitress was great , took care of everything we could ask for. Save room for the housemade ice cream.

Got there early on a Sunday, so it wasn’t a long wait for the food. Small place. We had the Mussels and Brie as apps, and the Burger & Rigatoni entrée. We thought the food was great. We will definitely return.

The food is excellent! The service is quick and courteous. Only problem is that it’s loud (not loud music, just acoustics I think), making conversation a chore.

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.
