We eat at the Blackshop every few months and they never fail to provide amazing food and excellent service. The ambiance is perfect for the laid back quiet type with soft music and lighting. Even the patio is surrounded by beautiful planters and has a very private feel. This is a wonderful restaurant!

Whenever we want to take someone out for dinner in Cambridge, we choose the Blackshop Restaurant. The main reason for this is....it's consistency in presenting the tastiest, made-with-fresh ingredients and reasonably priced dishes. Their attention to detail and service exceeds other restaurants we've been to. They normally have a good selection of "specials" to choose from and carry gluten-free entrees... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant and were pleased with the menu. The service was good. Would be nice to have quieter tables for couples only, away from bigger tables. Atmosphere would be better if tables not so close to each other. Food itself was very flavourful and presentation creative.

The chef here is capable of producing a better than average meal. The chicken supreme is better than most. The schnitzel is the pits. The wine list is better than most.

I used to travel to the Cambridge area regularly 15 years ago and Blackshop was a regular stop when it was still at it's previous location downtown. My partners and I had dinner here at the current location and although the restaurant is much larger now, the food continues to be top notch. The restaurant layout has many options if... More

Very good service, a nice ambiance and a quiet spot. Mostly good food except crab cakes and schnitzel were both slightly overdone. Nothing else notable.

We enjoyed a family dinner and took advantage of the Sunday Prime Rib special. Food, service and decor were all very nice. Two of our party ordered the Prime Rib while others tried the heirloom tomato salad and the Blackshop Schnitzel and the roast chicken (very good). Servings are generous. We normally reserve for about 7:30 or 8:00 but this... More

I was excited to try this restaurant on my daughter's recommendation after having a group dinner last year. We went for the Roast Beef Sunday after the Dunfield Theatre. This was a birthday celebration for two of the guests. The soup and caesar salad were excellent. Corn and chicken chowder was thick with just the right amount of spice. The... More
