Black Bull Steak & Seafood Restaurant
40oz of prime beef with the rich flavor of a strip and the tenderness of a filet
Excellent as it always is. Service, food, drinks everything was perfect
Great steak experience
Thanksgiving dinner! So glad we decided to go here. Fabulous dinner & service.
$125 tomahawk steak was raw. Not just rare but raw in many sections. Creamed spinach was bland as were the mashed potatoes.
Anniversary dinner. Our waiter was great. The Brussel sprouts were amazing. My steak was perfect. My wife had eggplant parmigiana and she said it was delicious.
We will be back.
Phenomenal food and service
Always a great meal and amazing service. Was a little shocked that my usual king crab leg appetizer doubled in price when we got the check but it's a sign of the times. They used to tell you ahead of time but not last night and I almost fell.over at the over $100 price tag for the appetizer! It was super yummy though!!!
Excellent food, service and experience!
Good solid meal- steaks were excellent- a bit pricey
First time there overall we enjoyed the evening..our waiter Mansi was the best..great service & food with a sense of humor..will definitely go again & ask for him
Good services and outstanding steak, A bit over priced and ala carte make the price even more hard to take, but these are the times we are in.
Very nice place. Waiter was very pleasant. Good hospitality , good food. Definitely recommend.
Our last visit was actually very disappointing. We had a reservation but arrived way earlier than planned, so started with happy hour. The 2nd cocktail made by a bartender other than the one who had prepared the first round, was not drinkable. We told the “1st” bartender, who disposed of them and remade the drinks. We still paid for the rejected ones.
Still very early for dinner, we went to the cigar lounge for a smoke. We bring our own. We were then charged $5 per person for a cutting fee, which is a new thing. If they are planning in selling cigars, they’d better have an extensive selection, which they do not. That disgusted us a bit to be honest. We spend $50 at the bar, will consume another drink at the cigar lounge, and will spend at least $130 per person at the restaurant.
This is Riverdale, not some happening venue in NYC. We will not go back, the cutting fee is such a petty way of generating revenue any which way, that we will bypass the practicality of a cigar lounge in the neighborhood, and resume going to J&R.
Delicious food and great atmosphere! Service is A+! Shoutout to Mervin!
This is a great place to relax and have a great meal!
Excellent food. Service was super slow but wait staff and servers were excellent otherwise. Apparently they were short staffed.
The experience overall was delightful, very easy to book a reservation for 7 and perfect service on a Friday night. Food was good and service was great.
As always very nice.
Excellent meal as always. Great service and overall experience.
It’s was good overall
Everything was great!
Great Food and service, prices comparable to other “high-end” steakhouses
Everything was great!
pleasantly surprised/service good/food good/would bring friends/didn’t realize restaurant was so nearby
Food was amazing. We ordered a tomahawk and ribeye for 3 to share. I have to admit the food was great and service was excellent!
The shrimp arrabiata appetizer was very mushy, the calamari was nice and crispy , but had little flavor. The short rib dinner was excellent, as was the sirloin steak. The filet mignon was cooked perfect on the inside but the outside was charred . I don’t tend to complain and didn’t want to embarrass my family. This was our first time here and we won’t be back . Too expensive to have sub par food !!!!
Great service and ambiance.
Great hidden gem in Riverdale. Nice menu and wine list. Wait staff is very attentive. They do have outside dinning. The apps, steaks, and specials are great. Price is reasonable. Very accommidating.
The specials were AMAZING tonight. King crab legs and a dover sole that were so good!!
Great meat, expensive but cooked well. Service was very good never felt rushed. Would repost and try some seafood next time.
Wasnt crowded. All went well until we finished meal then plates sat and sat and sat until we called waiter over for dessert menu. Tartufo was like half cut in slices(kinda a strange) and i was told it was definitely decaf tea however bag tag said regular. I didnt drink it and told waiter. He never offered to take it off bill. I took it off his tip
We like it there so I am being honest so it just keeps getting better
Service was prompt not rushed, staff is very attentive without seeming to hover. Friendly wait staff. Excellent value. Cigar lounge perfect.
We will be returning and recommending to friends
The food never disappoints!!
Black Bull consistently delivers excellent service and quality food. The staff is extraordinarily attentive and the food is served piping hot to your liking. The menu varies and I always struggle to choose between appetizers, dinner and dessert. Never have I been disappointed!! Always a pleasure and wonderful experience dining and Black Bull.
Food was excellent with the exception that the fra Diavlo was not spicy at all
Food was light on flavor. Lobster Mac and cheese was soupy send very little lobster. Mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes. Not worth the price paid
A nicely decorated steakhouse serving fresh seafood, pasta and steaks. Our service was impeccable and we went without needing anything. Staff was very attentive.
The Seafood tower is served for 1-6 people but didn’t live up to the quality that other places have. Measuring against Ruth Chris for example. Other appetizers were very good with decent portions.
The Lobster pasta was flavorful but the lobster was minced so small that it wasn’t really the star, should have had more meatiness to impress.
The steak (Strip) was cooked in high heat to produce a nice char, then sliced off the bone on a hot plate. House sauce was a good accompaniment. I’d rather cut my own steak as it tends to lose its juiciness when it is sliced off the bone like that.
Deserts were home made and good but the Apple Strudel was a tad watery from the apples which wilted the pastry leaving much to be desired.
Not a bad experience at all and will return, but not on top of the list.
It feels like a diner with much better - and more expensive - food.
