“Christmas at the black rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Had our work party this year at the black rock grill. Food was unbelievably amazing and the service exceptional. With such a large party they couldn't do enough for us.
Such an amazing place hidden away in saddlegate.
Can't wait to go back and have the unique luxurious experience again

“Very impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Visited on a wednesday night and had 3 courses. Decided not to have steak on the rock and chose from the a la carte menu. The food tasted great and was very well presented. Overall i was very impressed and hope to return soon.

“2nd chance - won't be a 3rd”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

After arriving to find our table had not been reserved even though we had booked we were seated right next to the bar. After a long wait we ordered drinks and food. The starters arrives before the drinks, which we had to chase. 2 steaks ( ribeye and fillet ) were off the menu due to selling out. Not good for a steak house on a busy Saturday night. We asked for 2 of the streaks to be pre cooked to medium so we could finish them off on the rock. This is because one of our party likes his steak rare and we wanted to be able to eat together. The waiter seemed confused at the request but the time before when we visited one of us was still cooking and the other had finished. Food eventually arrived and was nice however the 2nd round of drinks took an extremely long time and first the order was wrong and then the cocktail seemed to be extremely watered down. The rocks were left on our table a long time after we had finished and due to poor extraction this was extremely uncomfortable due to the heat. We mentioned our concerns when the bill came and we were informed it was a new chef and they were re thinking the concept etc. This is what we were told last time therefore we won't return. All in all very disappointing.

“Great night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We had a party of 17 and we're seated in the "loft area", which is ideal for a large group. The staff were friendly and professional, Leslie (The Manager) ensured everything ran smoothly for us. The food was excellent, drinks were reasonably priced with a couple of decent bottles of wine available.
Our group had a great time and we'd all go back, thoroughly recommend it.

“Great evening out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I took the other half here for his birthday, was a Tuesday and we were the only people in (played the 'I've booked out the whole restaurant for you my dear', card)! Shown to our table straight away, waitress was great; friendly but not over bearing. Food was delicious (can recommend the Kangaroo, make sure you pre-order though), there was a little smoke but surely expected when cooking your own meat at the table? Lovely evening all in all and we shall definitely be returning to try the other exotic meats!
