New Year’s Eve
New Years Eve had a set menu. Good food and wine selection. Dessert item not favourable. Very warm that evening. Great service.
We made reservation for a New Year's eve dinner. Restaurant, atmosphere and service were amazing. Our server was outstanding. My partner is lactose intolerant and although kitchen was aware of that he still reacted after having a that chocolate ganache tart. As for me it had hard crust. I wish there were a few options of sweets on the menu, not just one.
Overall it's a great place and service
The food was really bland, had a whole different menu for New Years we were disappointed. Took 3 hours we had reservations will not be returning.
We were seated along main entry way. Any seating in a quieter more intimate area would made the evening outstanding. The meal choices were great and everyone in our party enjoyed their meals immensely. Wait staff was exceptional. So happy we booked for New Years.
My husband and I went for New Year’s Eve dinner. It was fantastic. Delicious food and great ambiance.
We go to the Blackshop for business and pleasure. This was by far the best food and experience we have had at this already good restaurant. Food cooked to perfection. Service very good. Great ambiance.
Would like to see more shareable appetizers on the menu
Thank you for the 5-stars, Rene, and we appreciate the suggestion to add more shareable apps
We very much enjoy our business lunches at The Black Shop, we always have the same server and I am sorry I do not know or recall her name. She is very pretty blonde hair and excellent at her trade.
Always attentive but never a bother, great sense for reading the crowd.
Food is dependably good every time,
I look forward to my/our next visit.
Thank you and Merry Christmas
Thank you for the detailed review and your continued support, Tim. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family
The Blackshop provides an elevated dining experience at a very good price point. Food was superb as well was the service. Will return soon and recommend it to everyone.
"Elevated Dining Experience!" Thank you, Paul, that is a great compliment. Thanks for the recommendation, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great restaurant. Would recommend to friends .....
Thank you for the recommendation, Serge!!!
My husband and I met friends at the Black Shop for dinner. We had a very enjoyable dining experience. The staff were friendly and made you feel welcome. We were seated in a quiet area, with lots of space between tables. Our waiter was attentive but not too in your face. The food was very good, and everyone said they enjoyed their meal. We certainly would recommend the Black Shop to anyone.
We appreciate the time you took to share your experience, Wendy. We're thrilled to hear all of you had a great time and enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. Happy Holidays!
Throughly enjoyed the menu selection, my guest raved about the fish of the day. She thought it was the best fish dish she had ever tasted. I think it was trout. Of course we saved room for dessert. I had asked for the recipe and the crème brûlée yesterday was still the best I had ever tasted at a restaurant. I still would love it if you shared the recipe. No response from you the last time I asked. Service excellent.
Thank you for sharing your experience, Takki. For a guest to say "it was the best fish dish she ever tasted" is enough to put our kitchen staff on cloud 9!!! As for our crème brûlée recipe, I'm sorry, our Chef keeps that recipe under lock and key and won't reveal his secret, lol.
Great food great ambiance fire side!
You had the best seat in the house, Dave. Glad you enjoyed it!
I had the lunch feature blackened fish with asparagus and potatoes on a bed of tomato leek purée. It was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The staff were very attentive and efficient.
Thank you for the kind words about our staff, and we're thrilled to hear you enjoyed our fish special, Eileen.
Had another wonderful meal, while celebrating our daughters 25th birthday.
Happy belated 25th to your daughter, Shawna. We're honoured you chose Blackshop to celebrate your daughter's special day, and thank you for your continued support.
The restaurant itself is lovely. My friend and I came in for brunch and were warmly greeted by both the hostess and our server. The bread basket was delicious, and we enjoyed it thoroughly. I ordered the smoked salmon benedict and was quite disappointed as the eggs were boiled for too long and not runny like a benedict would require. The dish was, unfortunately, sub-par.
Thank you for the feedback about our Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Insia. We aim for perfection with every dish we serve, but if something is not to our guests' liking, we encourage them to speak with their server, and we will gladly remake the meal.
Awesome food and ambience. Service was SLOWWWWW...
Thanks for the 5-Stars, Len! Our servers do their best to give guests their space to enjoy their food and company, but in the future, if you require a rush order or more attention, let your server know, and they will accommodate accordingly. Thank you for the feedback.
Terrible service, long wait times, food portions small for the value
Fantastic time at BlackShop for our holiday gathering. I would definitely recommend. The food was delicious. The staff were responsive and attentive, while also giving us time to reconnect and celebrate.
The holidays are our favourite time of the year, and we remember your party well! Happy to hear you had a great time! Thanks for the review.
Great as usual… :)
Perfect! Thanks for the review.
while the food was great, the restaurant was packed, with little social distancing between tables. As seniors this made us nervous.
Thank you for sharing your experience, and we're happy to hear you enjoyed your meal, Anne. Rest assured, Blackshop implements and abides by all government regulations, taking all Covid protocols very seriously. However, our guests' comfort is a top priority, and anyone can request extra distancing from other tables if the standard 6'+ is not enough
Our meal was served in a timely fashion, hot and delicious.
Our server Max was very helpful and pleasant.
Always enjoy our visits to the Blackshop.
Max is a great server! Thank you for the kind words and excellent review, Logan.
Really surprised at how good to food was from apps to dinner to dessert. Great service and we had a lovely time.
Wow!!! Thanks for the stellar review, Rachel. We're thrilled to hear we exceed your expectations.
We went there as a first time experience and enjoyed it. We had thoughts of a Brunch but only choice was Appetizers or a Full Course Supper. Would be nice to have a lighter Brunch meal lineup option from possibly 11.30 to 1.30.
Thank you for your feedback about our Brunch menu and for sharing your first experience at Blackshop, Thomas. We're happy to hear you enjoyed it.
Love the eggs Benedict! The creme brulee was yummy, too. Great indoor ambiance. Max did a great job serving us. Will definitely return for Sunday brunch again
Stevie, thanks for the fantastic review! We'll always have a table waiting for you for Sunday brunch. See you soon.
Food was excellent and it was wonderful to see the restaurant full and bustling with happy vibes. We've been here with friends a few times and Blackshop has never disappointed.
We appreciate your loyalty, Lilian, and thank you for your continued support. We provide the venue, but our guests create the positive vibes, and for that, we are grateful.
Good as always. Seasonal menu was a real hit with our group, especially the Fogo cod with dumplings
We're always happy to hear when our seasonal menu items are well received by our guests. Glad you enjoyed the cod and dumplings, Rog. Thanks for the review.
Our waiter Matt deserves a HUGE shout-out for his excellent service. You are appreciated!!
Shout-out received! Thanks, Lauren; we passed this along to Matt.
Great place. Food was delicious.
Thanks for the 5-stars!!!
This restaurant is consistently outstanding. We had the Beef Tenderloin tonight. Always tender and flavourful.
The beef tenderloin is a consistent home run with our guests. Glad you enjoyed it, and thank you for your continued support, Cam.
Very enjoyable meals. Zara was our wait and she was excellent.
Glad you enjoyed and thank you for the kind words about Zara.
The Blackshop continues to provide a wonderful dining experience. Wonderful staff and setting to dine. Higher prices are the new reality. We make it a yearly get-together!
Thank you for sharing your experience! See you again next year!!!
The Blackshop is a wonderful experience for any occasion or event.
The variety of food will exceed your expectations.
You're the best, Jane! Thank you for the kind words
Service was terrible. Took over an hour to get our dinner and in that time the server did not come to the table to offer drinks or additional bread or anything. No apologies for the delay. Once it arrived, food was mediocre. Such a shame. The Blackshop has always been fantastic.
We're sorry to hear your recent experience at Blackshop was not as fantastic as you're used to. We would love an opportunity to make it up to you. Please get in touch with us and ask to speak with the Manager.
18th wedding anniversary and food and service were spectacular!
Happy belated anniversary! Thank you for choosing Blackshop to celebrate your special day
The service and attention was wonderful. The way the restaurant is laid out, several smaller rooms, allows you to feel safe in your space but really assists with keeping noise levels down.
Excellent dinner and a wonderful evening.
We appreciate the feedback on our seating arrangement, Ellen. We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your meal and had a great dining experience.
I had the special feature and it was delicious !!! Our server was very attentive
We're happy to hear you enjoyed our special! Thank you for sharing your experience
