A friend and I went during the Londonlicious event where you get a 3 course meal for $35. The food was a great value, the alcohol was quite pricey. I had a glass of wine (Malbec) for $12. The service was amazing, our server answered all of our questions and made great recommendations. The food was amazing. One downfall is... More

Went for dinner with 7 other co-workers during Londonliscious for a 3 course dinner for $35.00. The food was amazing and we didn't leave hungry. Barely had room for dessert. We had a great server and the food came out hot and in a timely manner. Would definitely go again.

Food is always great. Maki rolls are fantastic- but share the order. They get to be a little much half way thought- they used to offer a half-order options if you asked. I wish they'd bring that back- we used to go there for lunch all the time when we could have a half-maki roll with side salad. Not anymore.... More

We had a family lunch here on January 2nd and were very impressed by the server in particular. We were the only ones in the restaurant but we appreciated the server's attention to detail, appearing at the right moments and his professional manner. The food was very good: Two ordered the beef tenderloin with pasta, one order of steak with... More

Long and narrow, interesting decor, fast, effecient and pleasant wait staff. Sat near a nice warm fireplace. Food was excellent, 6 of us all had different dishes and all enjoyed them. A Egg Nog creme brule to finish that was delicious.

Our family (5) went to The Black Trump for the first time and we as an overall had a good impression. They had some unique type of food on their menu like Elk which was nice. The wine list was Ok and we were able to choose a wine we liked. Our daughter had lamb which we thought it was... More

A group of us went to this restaurant for a business dinner. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The noise level moderate. We all ordered different dishes from an extensive menu plus some wonderful specials. The food was served promptly, beautifully presented and very tasty. Loved the food. We had several different wines from a small but well thought out... More

I went here with three friends when visiting London on a recent trip. The atmosphere was great, especially near the fireplace, which is where we were seated. The drinks menu was impressive, but the 'perfect' Manhattan was just ok. My appetizer was the very unique duck candle, which includes a candle made out of rendered duck fat. It tasted great... More
