We try to always bring our UWO boys to this restaurant when we are in town visiting. The food is outstanding, the service and attention is excellent, and we never feel that we have spent too much, because we always get great value in return. I even tipped the water server, as she was so attentive to our needs. A... More

I made a reservation for a business dinner. We were sat in a small room off to the side with a large birthday celebration. A room with no ambiance or charm. We arrived in separately and after the first group it took some time to order drinks. Drinks were not brought quickly at all after ordering either. In fact two... More

It was my first time to the Black Trumpet and it was wonderful. I was planning a special evening for my friend's Birthday and we were not disappointed. The prices are higher but the quality and quantity are there as well. That is something hard to find when all three come together. Thank you Black Trumpet for making my friend's... More

We always find our selves back at The Black Trumpet. We eat all over the city, and I am always thinking about the food here. The fish special every night is amazing, and paired with a great wine, you can not beat it. The Black Trumpet is the first date restaurant my fiance took me to and we always enjoy... More

The food and the service in the Black Trumpet was excellent. I had a steak and it just melted in my mouth. However, the prices were over the top in my estimation. A good place for a "special" meal once in a long while.

After not being able to get into the Icarus Resto. Bar, as we had originally hoped to try, we were steered to the Black Trumpet.. What a bit a serendipitous good luck!! We did not have reservations ( and they were packed ), but the fine gentleman named Kapitan made sure we were seated promptly ( at the bar )... More

I took my ladyfriend to Black Trumpet on Aug 29th for her birthday. For appetizers, we ordered a caesar salad and tempura maki rolls. The caesar salad ($11) was OK and the tempura maki rolls ($12) tasted like their were cooked in fish oil. Then we ordered two grilled beef tenderloins ($36 each). One was to be medium rare and...

Wonderful atmosphere! Food is like London. Mediocre!!!! My friends steak was horrible for 36 dollars i expect more. My chicken for the price had little or no lobster in it. Service was good until a big table came in and Marla ditched us for the tips. So sad. For this price i could have had many wonderful meals and beers... More

A colleague and I had dinner at the Black Trumpet early in the week. The server was very pleasant but the service was very slow. There is a great variety of lovely options on the appetizer menu but the selection of entrées are completely meat and fish based. The only vegetarian option was pasta minus seafood - replaced by very... More

Me and a friend went for dinner tonight and we had a wonderful time. Our meal was delicious and portion sizes were great for the entree. Our appetizers were also delicious; however, I felt that my appetizer, which was the stuffed jalapeño, was a small quantity for the price. They were tasty non the less. We had wonderful and accommodating... More
