“Never again”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We have dined at Blackstone many times on our yearly trips to Atlanta. We have always enjoyed the great service and food. Not so this year. We dined on a Friday night, and valet parking was not offered. We had to park about a block away and walk uphill to the restaurant ( in heels in 86 degree weather). Our party of four was seated promptly and the hostess very polite. The place was about 1/2 full, if that. Our server came quickly to take our drink orders. Well, they were out of Grey Goose, Makers Mark and Belvedere. So much for our cocktails. The server gave us no time to peruse the menu. He spoke so fast that none of us could understand a word he said. We felt we were being rushed the whole time. We were all very disappointed that Blackstone took such a nose dive from last year.

“Great food and nice atmosphere”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I bought a Groupon to try Blackstone, since I'd heard so much about it and I absolutely loved the food. There are mixed reviews on every site regarding Blackstone, but my experience was nothing but positive. I had a great steak and I tried the fried lobster for the first time (tasted a bit like shrimp, but it was good). My server was attentive and the food was well presented. I would definitely try it again.

“Excellent for business or pleasure”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Lovely neighborhood spot that is perfect for business gatherings, meeting friends or a romantic dinner. Food is exceptional! We have been many times and have never been disappointed! The steak is wonderful, the seafood dishes are perfect and the deserts are out of this world! We celebrate birthdays and anniversaries here.

“Be sure to check your itemized bill -- and -- Save $ by drinking at home”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The crab and avocado salad was very good. The tuna was cold and the lamb was passable. The onion rings were the highlight of relatively poor experience. We ordered Absolut and the bill read Ketel One (usually more $ at most places). We were charged for ala mode on our dessert (there was none). They did remove it from the bill. The valet was smoking at his station outside of our window and the smell seeped through. I've never had that happen before. The cocktail prices were extraordinarily high. This is an average place trying to be Ruth's Chris and not getting anywhere near there -- except for the size of the check. We're in no hurry to return.

“Never Again...terrible service”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Experienced the worse service ever in a so-called high-end steak and seafood house. Our meal was wonderfully prepared, but all was negated by awful service. We had to ask for bread after our entrees were served (while other tables received bread baskets when seated). We had to go to a sideboard to refill our water glasses. Food was late in arriving as was the final check. Given the prices, we should expect a far more enjoyable dining experience.
