“Expensive - Good Food - Blah Atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

After 5 years, I finally decided to give the place a try.

The room itself was baron. They need to do something to break up the large room to make it more intimate.

The bread provided seemed cheaply made, yet it was okay.

The salad was incredible and no complaints whatsoever.

The entree was good, except the clams were extremely gritty. No only gritty, but they had larger than normal pieces of sand, which as everyone knows, is NOT appealing in your mouth.

The rest of my meal was satisfactory.

Service was excellent.

For the price, it was NOT worth it, yet the food was good. NOT great. I would rather spend my money (and less of it) at Via Sforza's in Westport.

Just my two cents.. or should I say, $292.00 for two people. YIKES!

“Blackstone's is a Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

A friend, who lives in Stamford, and I (who live in Westport) were looking for a steakhouse … spouses and kids were away. We needed alcohol, steaks, and wine (not necessarily in that order). We could go to Stamford or Bridgeport and get great meals, but we decided to "split the difference." We are both very happy that we did!

This is an "out of the way" location, in a small strip mall on Main Street, away from the road, so make certain that your GPS is on. However, once one arrives, they will find this to be a real pleasure. A standard steakhouse menu, but all is very well prepared. An extensive California wine list (with representative selections from elsewhere).

Great service, no rush, no fuss. We'll certainly be back again.

“Simply outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

I have eaten here at least 6 times while in Norwalk on business. I have never had anything but a great meal with perfect service. This is my favorite place to take my local clients in Norwalk. I have often commented that the strip mall it is located in is the least likely place to find a steakhouse of this caliber. The food is great, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is perfect for a business dinner or a romantic night out.

The waiters are super attentive without hovering, they are very good at what they do and at making recommendations. The seafood is fresh and very well prepared, and the steaks are some of the best I have eaten anywhere in the world. My personal favorite is the Steak Au Blue, I could eat it every day. If you really want to treat yourself, the Surf and Turf is excellent! A fresh, well cooked lobster tail with a perfect filet mignon. The asparagus with Hollandaise sauce makes a great side, as do those other steakhouse classics; sauteed mushrooms, creamed spinach, or mashed potatoes. You simply cannot go wrong here.

Visiting Blackstone's is usually the highlight of my business trips to Norwalk.
