Loved our waiter. One of the best in the business. Old school steak house. Loved the sides. Fresh and steamed without unnecessary fats.

The issue was our steak! My friend and I split the 10 oz filet. It arrived and looked like it was half of a half! It measured 3 inches long and 1/3 inch thick.

We always have a wonderful dining experience at Blackstones Norwalk. The staff is always welcoming and efficient, the atmosphere is relaxing and the food is consistently delicious. The steaks are always of the highest quality, the seafood is fresher than fresh, salads and appetizers are truly delicious as well. My favorite side vegetable is the roasted Brussels sprouts w bacon…wow! I could have them everyday and never tire of them. Blackstones’s is one of our favorite restaurants (we only have a few faves) ..it’s top notch and I highly recommend it to all!

Special surprised for my husband with a trip to Blackstone's Steakhouse for our 14th year wedding anniversary. I’m glad he very happy with my choice. We walked in with a smile and left with a smile.

Upon walking in, the ambiance was serene, friendly and had nice warm lighting. The vibe felt like you knew you were in a steakhouse. Ahhhh the smell of juicy steaks.

The appetizers, entrees and the desserts were amazing (see photos and comments), cocktail was a bit weak but the waiter was able to quickly fix the issue.

Overall, we had an great experience. The waiter and host were exceptional with delivering the best service to us and for that we're forever grateful. They even remembered and acknowledged our wedding anniversary. Sometimes acknowledging an occasion can be a rarity in restaurants when I books I requested to writes Happy 14th Years Anniversary to my husband dessert plate and the host her self brings the surprise dessert plate her self, which is I was so happy and appreciate for what she did.

The only downside we noticed was that the WiFi and/or reception there isn't the best - spotty at best. My husband trying to get an Uber, He had to physically move around different places to finally connect.

Nevertheless, we definitely had a great time celebrating our anniversary. We recommend Blackstone's Steakhouse
and plan to go back again.

Food is good; due to limited number of patrons the service- which has always been excellent- suffered a bit in our last experience. I'll go back again, it is normally a well serviced restaurant.

Mother's Day 2021
I was asked to order before being offered drinks
I order the Seaford Platter and was told I need to order everything else that the table wants like right now.
Sides are everyday Sides no oil to dip cheap bread.
Never go there again.

Everything was pretty good, more salt of a few things would of have been nice!! When i made the reservation on open table one of the questions was what the occasion was and I SPECIFICALLY stated it was my husband’s birthday when we got to the restaurant they asked again if it was a birthday what was the point??? There was so birthday singing or at least a dessert fro the birthday dude! Lol a bit disappointing!!!!

Great wine list with every bottle we inquired about on hand and ready to serve. Had a 2014 Heitz Cabernet that was served perfectly and drank beautifully. Lobster cocktail and a T-Bone for two made this a great night to catch up with an old friend.

I am a regular at the restaurant. I specifically requested for a baby seat with friends visiting. When we arrived at the restaurant, our table was already taken by other guests and we were lead to a high table at the bar area where a baby seat is "impossible".
If you cannot accommodate your regular guest whom specifically requested a table and a baby seat, please do not take the reservation. I understand with the current situation (COVID), restaurants have to survive. But it is not right to let the guests stand around for 15 minutes, sees the baby but still takes us to the high table, and tell us it was the only option. We had no other choice but the leave this night. I was truly disappointed.

Besides this incident, Blackstone's steaks are cooked impeccably, better than many top notch steakhouses in NYC.

Unfortunate since I had been there years ago when it was very good. Waiter appeared annoyed. Ordered large filet mignon it was very bad cut of meat; stringy, no flavor, raw. Probably got it at Shop Rite. Understandably covid happened these last saturday were greasy, skinny. They used to be very different and tasty. The only decent thing was the glass of wine. Won't be returning.

Staff was unfriendly. Food was not good at all. Very disappointed. Used to enjoy it. Will not go back. Steak was not cooked the way we asked and lobster was weirdly fishy
It’s a shame. Maybe it was on an off night but the unfriendly staff and high prices aren’t forgiving

Perhaps the best NYC style steakhouse in Fairfield County. The steak is great, sides are done perfectly with the possible exception of French fries. Shoestring fries would be better. I go for the home fries instead, so it's never an issue for me.

The hostess was very nice: the one who took us to our table. However our waiter was a little impatient when we asked questions about the entree. Since it’s my first time I wasn’t sure what came with the salmon entree and wanted to know if it was a complete meal or just the salmon. He seemed irritated by that question.

As usual, the service was outstanding. The food was cooked to perfection. We all had a great meal with terrific sides. The bartender continues to do a great job putting his drinks together. I would say this is the best steakhouse in the area. Been here many times and I’ve never been disappointed.

We are usually always quite delighted with Blackstone’s service and food. Unfortunately, this must have been an “off” night. The service, appetizers and drinks were TOP notch, and 5-Star, as usual. However, the main course of steaks (tomahawk and ribeye) were undercooked, and when they came back to the table, they were slightly overdone, and had lost all the flavor. I didn’t even care to finish it... Our server took very good care of us and offered us a round of wine on the house when he saw how the steaks were served... so I’m sure this was just a bad night. It happens. We will go back eventually, as this is of our favorite restaurants in the area.
