Quality Restaurant

We have dined at Black's many times. It is a quality restaurant that serves well prepared food and drink. The wine list is solid and the menu is creative.

This is a neighborhood restaurant and it never fails. I';ve been here for dinner, lunch, drinks and snacks, and I have loved everything. My special favorite is their calimari, which I think is the tenderest and best that I've ever eaten. Their mojitos are "to die for,"- the best!

All the food was fantastic - salmon was cooked to perfection! The only thing preventing me from giving a higher rating was that it was no... More

This restaurant serves fantastic dishes that are updated as the seasons change. Their assortment of oysters never disappoints and their specials each week are well thought out and prepared. I make a point to visit every couple weeks when I in the area for my manicure.

Enjoyed our time as soon as we were seated. Service was great and our server was very knowledgeable when it came to the dishes. Enjoy a couple mock tales with our meal. Listen to the specials! We tried the soup of the day and a sea bass that was to die for! Can't wait to dine in again. Skip the... More
