“Talented chef in a great ambience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

When we first moved to Brookings OR. 5 years ago we were enchanted with the small, but elegant restaurant, created by Rob and Kyle Kreb. To our disappointment it closed because of lease renel problems at the start of the recession. Last month they opened The Black Trumpet and they are once again showing their natural talent, along with years of experience from culinary schools to providing a dining experience for the executives of major US corporations. Earlier reviewers have described some of the excellent Italian dishes, but also the atmosphere adds a lot of creative visual stimulation, akin to what you might find in a trendy New York City restaurant. Pair that with pleasant, non obtrusive music, and excellent service and you are set for an enjoyable evening.

“Homemade Italian and DELICIOUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Everything in this place was made from scratch and was great! We went for lunch and the service was prompt and friendly. We were started with terrific REAL iced tea and homemade bread of some kind served with rosemary and garlic infused olive oil with their own vinaigrette reduction. I had a terrific meatball sandwich slathered in marinara and mozzarella cheese with a baby greens salad, both were excellent. My wife had some kind of polenta and sausage bowl which was also very good. We will be back! This place is hard to spot. It's between the theater and Ken's Tavern and it does not say Italian anywhere on the front of the building so you have to remember the hard to remember name.

“WOW!! In Brookings you must try this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Rob, the owner, is going all out on this one. I had Veal Marsala and
my wife had a spinach salid with chicken breast. Both excellent. The service is friendly and I felt welcome the minute i walked in. You just cant go wrong.
