My favorite restaurant!! I brought my girlfriends and they absolutely loved it! The staff were very professional. Everything about this restaurant is awesome! Can’t wait to go back.
Great food, friendly owner, great service. Definitely going back.
everything was great but the service was very slow
The food was excellent and the drink menu was above and beyond, but not overwhelming like some places. We had five dishes total, all of them meeting or exceeding our expectations.
The staff was very friendly, the only “negative” of the experience was that we were there for almost 3 hours. It was a night where it worked out for us, but could see it being a problem if you didn’t have all night to spare.
Overall a great experience, we will definitely return.
Very limited choices of very small plates
The drink options are spectacular! The food menu is very eclectic, I went with the Spanish octopus, my husband had the hangar steak, both were delicious! We will absolutely return, next time we will sit at the bar, and give happy hour a try.
Food was excellent as were drinks. We sat at bar and thought bartender should have checked in more with us.
Drink menu is crazy large but the drinks are delicious. Food was very good We will definitely go back.
Creative, unique cocktails! You can truly tell the bartender enjoys their craft & it shows! Food was great and reasonably priced for the size! Would definitely go again!
Food , service, drinks ... an absolute 10!! One of favorites!!
Dinner before Jone beach concert. Excellent!!
The food and drink selections were excellent. The food was excellent tasting and looked amazing. I recommend the chicken wings and the agnotolli. The size of the portions did not really jibe well with the price, however.
Although the food was very good, the small plates were “smaller “ than I’ve enjoyed at other restaurants offering this option. Additionally, the waitress did not offer a suggestion as to how many plates would be adequate for a party of 3. We all enjoyed our selections but felt the total bill was high based on the quantity of food we ordered.
My wife and I truly enjoyed out visit to blackbird. We had requested a quiet table on open table, and were accomodated. The drink menu was impressive, the food was excellent, and the service was attentive and personable. Our waitress brought us a delicious bread pudding, a sweet gesture as it was our anniversary. Definitely a "must try" gem.
The food was a little overpriced for the portions, but very good. The ambiance was cozy and nice and the staff was wonderful. Definitely worth the visit.
Amazing food, wine, cocktails!
A bit pricy, portions were a bit small for Tapas, and the "larger plate" I ordered wasnt much larger at all, HOWEVER all the food was EXCELLENT, specifically the Corn Pasta and the Scallops which were amazing.
Great place. We tried it based on the Restaurant Hunter TV show and it did not disappoint. Definitely going again and bringing friends
This place was a great experience , the food was excellent. It’s a bit small inside but was packed on a Tuesday night which says something about the food . Definitely recommend this spot if your like me I’d order a few dishes they are smaller tapas type dishes and bring at least $150
Blackbird is truly a conversation piece. This was my fifth time visiting and we are returning again, two days later, to celebrate my daughter's birthday. From the outside, one is not quite sure what one is looking at. For example, is it a bar, or a small restaurant, or both? Does it have ambience and who are its customers? Once inside, however, you are transformed into a lovely venue, with the most incredible chef, a very professional wait staff, and a clientele that is truly eclectic. Without question, this is a five star event.
Food was great. Its mostly small plates but one was better than the next.
Amazing, encyclopedic yet curated cocktail, wine and local beer menu, and inventive dining menu with vibrant flavors. Great for sharing multiple plates.
Food and drinks were excellent. Service was slow and unexpected since the restaurant wasn’t as busy as we’ve seen it in the past.
Very busy for a Thursday night but our table for 4 we reserved earlier in the day was waiting for us when we arrived at 8pm.
Food is very good. Ricotta with honey on bread, salads, octopus,scallops,chicken,cacio e pepe and fruit turnover with ice cream. Service is very attentive and helpful.
Will continue frequenting the place.
The tapas, as usual, was outstanding. The kale dish is my usual favorite. Enjoyed the lobster roll as well. Only complaint was the air conditioning didn’t seem to be working well. Otherwise, would have rated it the highest rating possible.
What a hidden gem. Didn't look like anything special from the outside. It's in a commercial shopping center. Was looking for somewhere to meet friends for drinks and dinner before a concert at Jones Beach. Food and drinks were excellent and service was great. Will definitely be returning.
The food was outstanding. My friends and I decided on a few small plates. The meatballs were some of the best we have ever had. The scallop was cooked perfectly and the kale salad was fresh and delish. Cocktail menu was extensive and the server was able to suggest a few of her favorites, all of which were amazing. We will definitely be back!
Second time here and it was just as good as the first time. I love that the menu changes to reflect what’s in season and their wine selections are excellent as well. Will definitely be returning.
Food is terrific. Might be a one off,but we were there at Happy Hour, although we were there for a regular meal. Bar was packed, with only one bar tender. At a table, wine came immediately, but a glass of Vodka took 20 minutes. Waitress poured the wine.
Also for value, the menu makes no sense. Small plate meatballs were half the price of the pasta entree we ordered, but was twice as big as the dish that cost twice as much.
Great food, slow kitchen and poor management.
Kudos to our waitress. Doing her best to make up for slow bar and slow kitchen.
Great meal as always. Salads are great. Cacio e pepi. Warm Chocolate cake is delicious. Ricotta and honey on bread is amazing. Service is good as well. Lots of unusual mixed drinks on the menu.
Excellent all around, as always!
Been here many times always had exceptional service. This last time though it took a long time for our drink orders to be placed and felt like we were chasing the waitress to get her to our table all night. Food was very good except for the mussels. We have always ordered it and it was always amazing. This past time mussels were fishy tasting and the broth wasn’t as good as previously. It’s is still one of my favorite places and hope this time was just a fluke.
The best restaurant on the south shore without a doubt
Great service,great drinks and phenomenal food
I drive by this local hidden gem all the time and I am so glad that we finally were able to experience the cuisine. I was a bit nervous walking in as it is small and a bit dark inside. Do not be deceived. The quaintness is much appreciated, not over seated. Plenty of space and room. We were able to have a conversation without noise. The drink menu is extensive and has something for everyone. The food menu has a nice selection of small plates/fresh pastas/ and large plates. The food is amazing, fresh and high quality. I was very impressed as to how it was served. We ordered 5 small plates, a pasta and 2 large dishes. The food was brought out staggered in that we were never without food on the table and was spaced nicely. We were not rushed and enjoyed each dish. Same for the drinks. Well done. Will be back again. Delish!
An unusual and wonderful selection of drinks and small plate delights. Vegetarian options were awesome, as were grilled octopus and lobster rolls - both unexpected and great. The crafted cocktail menu alone was worth the trip and experience, and they did not disappoint. We'll be back ;)
Our second time there and we love this place. Met some friends for dinner, our reservation was honored on time, the cocktail list was so impressive and was the menu. Never rushed , everyone was wonderful. Can’t wait to return
It was a nice way to celebrate a friends retirement steak was delicious
Went with a friend, and each started with an espresso martini, that was made perfectly! We shared all our dishes, and were not disappointed! We started with the blistered runner beans, which I'd never heard of. They were sauteed, seasoned, a little sweet and we really enjoyed them! Next were the lobster rolls, served in a tiny bun, and garnished with 2 little potato chips. Fantastic!! Then the Maine sea scallops, which were seared just right, sweet and melted in your mouth. We then shared the ditalini pasta dish, which was light and delicious, and ended with the halibut. Also cooked perfectly, and every tasty!! We finished each dish completely, and since they were all so good we HAD to see what the dessert menu held. We tried the bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream...holy moly!! We truly enjoyed the entire meal, and I would go back again for sure!
