Love this place. They always have a seasonal menu that utilizes farm fresh produce and proteins. Creative dishes that are great for sharing. Their cocktail list is great and also seasonal. Their old fashioned menu is the best on long island. So happy they’re open for dining again. Very clean and distanced. Can’t wait to go back.

I was so looking forward to trying this place but was highly disappointed. The food was way too salty and the gnocchi wasn’t edible. The short ribs and mussels were ok. Very good drink selection and they followed all covid safety precautions.

This was our first night out since the pandemic and it was amazing!! The food and the environment is always wonderful here but the effort they put into cleaning in between guests and dividing the space so that each table has its own area was so well thought out!! Amazing place, amazing service, amazing food!!! Every time we come here it’s a 10/10!!

Not sure how I've gone this long without leaving a review! My husband and I love coming to Blackbird. The menu is unique and delicious and the drinks are amazing! My husbands favorite cocktail is an Old Fashioned and said the Dutch Kills is one one of the best he's had. He always has to have a 2nd. Their Whipped Ricotta is our favorite and now their new version, the stracciatella on the new menu is so good. We also love their desserts! Frank is such a nice guy, makes you feel very welcome!

The food at Blackbird never disappoints. We went with several reliable favorites (chicken wings, whipped ricotta, meatballs, scallops) which were delicious as usual. We also tried the little gem salad which had an awesome dressing on it, the sweet potato anolini (suprisingly light and very delicious), and marinated cucumbers (these had a surprising kick of heat). We followed that up with the maple bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream and the cheesecake both of which were delicious. You really can't go wrong with the food here. The service was very good as usual.

Great food, great service, people friendly place. Just an FYI... I would lessen the drink menu/booklet. Too many speciality cocktails, so it takes a while to read & choose.

Great neighborhood eatery with creative cuisine. We've been here a number of times, some visits terrific, others less so. This time we decided to try the Chef Tasting Menu. We were not disappointed. We loved the Smoked Gouda Greuyere bites followed by the whipped Ricotta with honey on grilled bread. The marinated cucumbers were tasty as well, and the individual servings of both the scallops and tuna were spot on. My favorite was the sweet potato ravioli/anolini! As usual, their rigatoni over veal bolognese was really good, as were their meatballs. By the time the mains arrived we were almost stuffed, but we soldiered on, and finished up with orders of Cod over greens with a broccoli pesto and Filet Mignon with a mushroom bordelaise sause. The ONLY complaint I had was that the medium rare Filet was just a touch too rare for me. Just when we thought it was time for the check, we were served a slice of cheesecake and a slice of chocolate cake, both with ice cream on the side! A sweet end to a wonderful meal. Kudos to Chef Chris! Will definately be back again. Thank you Blackbird!

Always consistently very good food. Full house on a random Wednesday evening in February - this sort of popularity is a real sign of a restaurant that draws people in. Relatively short seasonal food menu with tasty options, & extensive drinks menu with choices to suit varying preferences. I'll continue to return.
