Met a client here for Happy Hour. Very pleasant outside seating area. Ordered the "Desperado" - a creation of one of the bar tenders. Very good. Reminiscent of a Margarita. A little expensive but the location is excellent and there is a public parking lot...More

Our national trade association recently moved its offices from D.C. to Bethesda, and I had lunch with our CEO at Black's. Our waitress recommended some oysters that were outstanding and the wood roasted Ahi Tuna. Both the food and service were excellent. I will return...More

We enjoy meatless meals on Lenten Fridays and decided splurge on Black's this week rather than returning to our regular pizza and pasta haunts. What a delightful surprise! The poached pear salad was a tasty starter for the two of us. I then enjoyed the...More
