    I get it. It’s a beautifully decorated restaurant. I feel like the owners wanted to hit all of the notes of a trendy restaurant that could go viral…but I’m confused. Why make a 15 minute big deal of the girls wearing slides instead of heels, let them in anyway, and then watch as they bent it over every chance they got…what do the heels have to do with expected conduct or a code? I just couldn’t connect the dress code beyond the picture/Instagram code—/ you want patrons to look a certain way, but it’s a club with tables and food service— let them dance in their slides.. she at-least understood the assignment with the dress and hair. The popcorn..why? Why is braised beef dry? Cooking with a hint, a note, a splash… the art to some classics was absent and then flavor additions seemed overpowering, unintentional, and/or misguided. At the end of the night, my group of three had three entrees and four drinks. $306. It wasn’t the cost, it was the obviously underwhelmed expressions on each of our faces. I wanted to love it. I did. But we left and went to another restaurant to eat. The consensus was maybe go back for pictures on your birthday???? I’m so confused, so confused- but this food experience (not the ambience, patrons, or music) made me hesitant about inviting anyone. Instaworthy for sure…just go there to drink and dance. And maybe if you drink enough- you’d have the most memorable dining experience.

    I celebrated my birthday at BLK and it was an amazing experience. The ambience was amazing and the food was delicious I would recommend this place to everyone as a hot spot in Baltimore. You must check out Black Swan and take pictures in the picture booth as a free Souvenir.

    The music needs to be turned down by 3 levels, especially for those sitting directly under the speaker. Good play list but way too loud as if we are in the club.

    I booked reservations way in advance. I was sent numerous emails & texts to confirm I was still coming up until a couple hours prior to arriving. When I arrived at 7:30pm, I was greeted by valet who informed me the AC was being “worked on” and then given this same disclaimer at the door upon entering. At no point in any of the confirmation emails sent to me that day, was I given advance knowledge that on the hottest day to date in Baltimore, that I would be forced to eat in a sauna. The AC was not being worked on at 7:30 PM & it was in fact broke all day and the owner was aware of this. When I asked how would my party of 14 be accommodated for the conditions we were being forced to endure, I was advised by the manager that the owner stated, “If anyone decides to stay after being told, then they are accepting the conditions, & no discount or anything.” We could always leave, and we did just that. A 20% surcharge was applied to every transaction regardless of party size, they wanted to charge a ridiculous fee to bring out my own cake & have guests sweat to death since the one fan they had set up wasn’t helping. It’s sad that they let a party of 14 walk out of their door & into Ouzos restaurant down the street. Big thanks to Ouzos for accommodating a party this size at such short notice & even sending a complimentary bottle to the table for having us wait even though we were early. Now that’s customer appreciation. BLK Swan, take notes & do better! FYI.. when I told the manager Ouzos was ready to accommodate us, he responded, yea, that’s a hot spot. …HA!

    The vibe was nice but that was about it. The food was ok but the crab cakes were horrible and the lam chops were super salty. The drinks were very overpriced I’ve never been charged $33 for a damn lemon drop on top of that they charge you the liquor and then charge you separate for them to give a mixed drink. Food came out really late and the manager only wanted to take off 15%. I won’t be back!

    The overall experience was ok. This was our first time going to this restaurant and we decided to go for an anniversary dinner. When we first walked in it reminded me of a night club as the music was bellowing from inside. We showed up at 755, because we had an 8pm reservation, but we were not seated until 810. Once we sat down it took about 10 minutes before we were greeted. Our server Ebony was great once she did come over. My wife had the short ribs (which was delicious) and I had the salmon (they ran out of chicken due to the Ravens’ players being there before us)The salmon was good, but a little oily. I thought the drinks and food were a little overpriced, but I guess it is right on par with some of the other restaurants in the area. I would not recommend this establishment for a date night, but more for a gathering of friends. The ambiance was not conducive for a romantic night.

    Black Swan is not worth the price. The food was horrible. They charged 36 dollars for chef boyardee spaghetti and 22 dollars for a Long Island Ice Tea that was god awful. The Mac and Cheese was watery and the Salmon had no flavor. The chicken box was Five big bat wings with overcooked fries. This is not what I consider to be fine dining. The owner/head chef should focus more on the product (food) then paying celebrities for photos that sucker people in. Lastly the dress code is a joke.

    I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time and it did not disappoint. Walking in it’s so nice, the music was just right. They give you this honey drizzle popcorn that is so bomb. My friend and I got the chicken and salmon. I will say I was a bit surprised by how small the portions was. I wished it was more considering the price, but everything was great ! We also ended up getting the lobster Mac and cheese… bomb ! As well as the fried Oreos for desert and they were sooo good ! Unfortunately they only give you two but they were good. Overall great experience though.

    The atmosphere was great. As soon as you walk in the door man, and receptionist was amazing and polite. They helped us take pictures. The waitress was great and checked on us alot. The music was great and the decor were beautiful. The drinks were on point and the appetite were good, especially the calamari. I gave 4/5 only because the crab cake and pasta wasn't good. However my friends loved their food. I would definitely go back though.

    We enjoyed everything about our visit. The atmosphere was amazing as expected! We were greeted by a beautiful spirit at the door. The hostess was very pleasant. Our server was outstanding. She gave a great reference for the food but I came ready to enjoy selections I had my eyes set on. Now to the food...the Challah french toast was sooo good. I had to take the rest home. I have to eat that alone so I can make all types of disrespectful noises. The lobster omelette was full of flavor. My husband enjoyed that greatly. My blackberry mojito was THEE BEST!!! So good I had to do it twice!!! So many glows but only one low. It's incredibly loud in there. You cannot hold a conversation with anyone. Maybe thats the idea. But, I could do without the insanely loud music. Maybe dial it down a bit. The live entertainment was PERFECT!!!! She sang so beautifully. I cannot wait to return.

    Have been here a few times and every single time has been great. But this time trumps all the other times and this is why. COURTNEY is the absolute best. We had a party of 11 and she handled it with no sweat. She had everything covered, we never had to ask twice for anything. Not saying my other servers weren’t good, I’m just saying Courtney was phenomenal. I will request her from now on. The food was also great, but it always is so that’s never a problem. One more thing, get the Branzino. Best Branzino I’ve had

    This place is a whole vibe! I was there for the ‘No Pix After Dark’ Live Podcast interview. The food and drinks was amazing! It’s an absolute MUST that you order the signature cocktail called, “Blk Swan”! Thank me later! I had the Jumbo Crabcake entrée! It was delicious! Especially, the broccoli! OMGOODNESS! I thought I’d never say this but, “the broccoli was seasoned to perfection!” I was served by an awesome waitress. I loved the experience at this restaurant. The music by DJ Allure set the tone, and it was great music! Every song was a “jam!” The decor was gorgeous! Nice lines, sleek, and sexy in a masculine kind of way. However, it still had a bit of softness with the contrasting colors of grey and white against the black. I definitely loved the message and theme of this establishment; and the meaning of the “Blk Swan” being something not necessarily seen as beautiful, but is in a certain way, soft but tough, rising out of a not so ideal situation and surprises all that comes into contact with it to find such beauty in an uncanny place. I will wrap by saying, it’s a beautiful restaurant and I can’t wait to return! I would highly recommend this place for others to check out, and I’ll definitely be back to enjoy with friends!
