    Stephanie was our server, and she had a great attitude and laughed with us. The food was phenomenal. We live in the Boston area, and it was worth the trip to Newburyport.

    No place to hang your coat!? Strange in winter, no? Menu is varied and has great selection and good specials. Prices are OK. It's a pretty restaurant, very clean and modern. Very active (loud) bar. Dedicated parking in this very busy area is a plus. I would go back. While the Tuscan Grill's view is fabulous, Black Cow's menu is more varied and portion sizes are good. My group of 4 would go back.

    Pricy but absolutely delicious food. Went for a special occasion and it didn’t disappoint. Plan on spending $100 per person including tip. The salmon was cooked perfectly. And the Brussels sprouts were roasted with great flavor.

    Their prices have gone way out of whack and the food has gone in the other direction. My fish was excellent, but the steaks were not very good. Our server was wonderful but unfortunately they have gone too far with their prices. We won’t be going back again.

    Wonderful experience! I live out of town. Had eaten at the old location several years ago, and I loved the new spot. The decor is beautiful and relaxing, and we had a diner with a walker and it was very accessible for her. Our service was perfect. The food was incredible and hot. The manager checked in on us to make sure. Very great experience!

    I had not been to Black Cow in many years because I do not live close by. Well I was treated to what I have been missing! Food could not have been better. Caesar salad which was a work of art and baked haddock which had the thickest piece of fresh haddock I have ever had. Sat in the “boat room” and the lighting and seating was perfect. Liz, our server, could not have been more professional and personable.
