Amazing food and service. We went during what was supposed to be a snow storm so it wasn’t as busy as normal. The service and food were just as great as it is on a busy night. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and they helped to make us feel special with a decorated dessert. They also brought us some limoncello on the house

A little slow (2.5 hours) but the meal was excellent. Wonderful steak, a nice bottle of wine and relaxing. Old school ambiance

We were visiting my younger son in CT and our older son from AL was also there. It was our older son’s 30th birthday, so we thought Blackstones would be the perfect restaurant based on other reviews. Everything was perfect. Caesar, our waiter was terrific and servers who assisted him were also great. From our starting salads to the steaks, the food was awesome. They also have a great wine list. Will be sure to dine there again when visiting our son.

Ordered the tomahawk steak, the outside was very burnt, the steak sauce kind of saved it. They came by to refill our beers just once, very slow and inattentive service, I would have had 4/5 more drinks, but they didn’t come back regularly. I had to ask 3 times for my 2nd drink...

Surprisingly good kitchen, few misses from the menu. Excellent wine list and pricing. Waitstaff and manager relatively inexperienced. Net, net...a good steak, super oysters, apps and sides ok...choice wines...be patient with the staff.

Great place for a great steak dinner. I had the surf and turf which included a lobster tale. The food was excellent although a little pricey at $54. Good creamed spinach side dish. Great lava cake with vanilla ice cream dessert.

This is a great place for a great steak. They are doing some cosmetic improvements to make the place a little more inviting. This is not easy. It is an older establishment in a strip mall kind of neighborhood.

First time we brought friends. One of them got a miniature sea bass. I got a miniature filet mignon. We paid a lot of money for these tiny portions. I don’t think I even got a center cut. The aged flavor was missing for the first time from both my steak and my wife’s porterhouse. In fact, my wife’s steak had an off taste. We have eaten there enough to know the difference. You even changed the flatbread. This is the second time in three weeks my filet was tiny. Seems like something is going down. At these prices we can’t afford to take a chance on the quality we used to get from this restaurant. We didn’t complain at the time because we were embarrassed in front of our friends. All very disappointing.

We are blessed to have such a great steakhouse in our town. It's not a cheap night out, but it certainly is worth it. At our table there was steak, Dover sole, shrimp, clams and a delicious burrata salad. The ambiance is lovely (even good jazz playing in the background), and the service is excellent. We look forward to returning to Blackstones.

One of the few steakhouses in Norwalk. Decor is an old-style steakhouse with dark wood and red finishings. Service is attentive. Their porterhouse steak was cooked exactly as ordered and very tasty; the classic sides are all there, with their Hash Browns being very good. Long wine list, from moderate to more expensive, so that was also very good. They are in a strip mall and walking through their back area parking lot through the bar area is not so nice, but the restaurant itself and the service are very good. We will be back.

Went there for Mother’s Day. The restaurant was very busy but the service was very good tentative. They do not rush you there at all which I greatly appreciate. The steaks were age to perfection and delicious. The french fries for the table were nice and crispy.

Food was just ok. NY strip side of our $188 porterhouse had so much gristle that it was almost inedible. Sides were fine but nothing special. For top prices like this you can get a better steak nearly anywhere. Friendly staff helps but the glowing reviews are insane.

Its a good steakhouse but nothing out of the ordinary. Service can be a bit sketchy at times. Simply put, not as attentive as I would like. There is an older gentleman that manages the front of the restaurant who's really terrific and service oriented. The staff needs to learn from him!

The restaurant was very loud. Servers and host were very nice but service was extremely slow and the food was not hot. It was a very long meal and there was a lot of waiting throughout the meal. We waited for the menu, appetizer and main course and the bill. We had to flag down the waitstaff many times throughout the meal. It's a shame since we were excited about going.
