Attended, with a party of five, the Blackfriars Bistro for lunch in mid-December, 2014. We were seated at a table, in the draft from a door, but were unsuccessful in obtaining another location. The restaurant is very small and was packed to the point of producing an overcrowded feeling. The two waitresses on duty could not handle the large number... More

We came here for a friend's birthday with a party of 16. Let's just say, this is NOT a place for large parties. We were separated into two uneven tables. One table for 10, then another table fit for 6. This of course lead to the birthday girl having to walk around constantly trying to talk to everyone. I was... More

Hate to give negative review, but food was dry, tasteless and over priced. Have not been there in awhile; won't be back soon.

Wonderful food ... obviously made with love and caring. Great catering menu. A fantastic place to eat ... just make sure that if you are driving from downtown that the bridge is open as it always seems to be under construction.

Well, I have read both good reviews and some bad but here's my take. I was shocked when I walked in to this restaurant as I did not expect it to be small but that didn't upset me until I sat by the air conditioner sticking out of the wall? ?It was so cold I had to move and I... More

My wife and I visited Blackfriars for my birthday this year and I have to admit that, from the hype, my expectations were likely too high. It's easy to be critical when you're dropped from a great height. The vibe of this cute little bistro beside a laundromat felt just a little too "delicate" for my tastes; I felt like... More

Our first time to Blackfriars, and it did pretty well. The menu was carefully put together, and we quite liked the Mahi Mahi and shrimp with Thai red curry spices. The heirloom tomato and beet salad was topnotch also. Service was pretty slow.

This was the first time I had been to Blackfriars for quite a few years. To be honest, never think about it, as its rather tucked away, but clearly worth the trip. We had dinner at a business function so had the place just for our group. We were given a choice of 3 appetizers, 3 mains and 3 desserts.... More

We've been to this restaurant several times. Valentine's day, new years, birthdays etc. Last night was a just because. Always good food. Service is polite if a tad slow. 2 hours for a three course meal. Nice date spot to relax and not be in a rush.

Imaginative menu selections, with sparkle. Good-sized portions - and a delicious chocolate mousse to end.
