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.

This place is fabulous. By far one of my favourites in the city. Especially for Sunday Brunch. Everything that is prepared on the plate is done with such love and passion. Presentation and taste of the always fresh food is state of the art. The best part of Blackfriar's is the service.Especially Hugh. He has been there part time I... More

Looked forward to Blackfriars. Have been several times and while not the best restaurant I've visited, it is usually consistent and has a good variety of choices. But this time, something in the food and service were very lacking. Cocktail choices were good and the wine selection is not bad. No water was given to us when we arrived. Had... More
