Pretentious - over extending and under achieving. Second time there, will not be back.
Great cocktails and vibes!
Second time here and I absolutely love it. The cocktails are amazing and so well done. Only comment is the cod croquettes were a little fishy this time but still enjoyed the entire experience.
Noisy table behind us with rude language very audible across the bar.
A globally very disappointing experience. So-so cocktails, simple, yet very bad food (how is it possible to serve bad chicken tenders?) inexperienced, inattentive and unattractive staff, a decor that resembles a steakhouse chain born in the Midwest.
They took so long to serve the food, but over all food was great, and service was excellent. Of course I will be back on Sunday for the live music.
Can not give review on food as the kitchen closed when we got there at 11:30pm
Love this place. The drinks are mixology art, the vibe is so grown and sexy, and Chorizo burger is slammin!
Outstaing as per always. Diego was masterful behind the bar. Will be back soon!
Exceptional. Very attentive service, amazing cocktail program, and delicious food. We are from Chicago, and we wish we had this experience here.
Unique blend of crafted cocktails and Cuban flare that is a captivating date spot!
Must-visit in NYC.
Everything was outstanding. The atmosphere, the drinks and the food.
Got it recommended by cocktail chemistry (YouTube channel about cocktails) and it was definitely one of the highlights in NY.
Unusually cold though, with apparently no control by the bar to monitor temperature.
Otherwise great place.
My wife and I went to Blacktail on a whim before heading uptown to see a show. From the moment we entered it was like we had been transported to a speak easy set in the middle of Havana. One thing the reviews don’t tell you is near the front desk, they have stacks of blank postcards that if you fill one out, they will put postage on it and mail it for you! We ordered the Cuban, the empanadas, and a salad. This was plenty of food for two people. The taste and quality of each item was AMAZING! We also ordered a couple of drinks and they were blended to perfection.
Don’t forget to save room for the warm churros for dessert. They were excellent as well.
Our next trip to NY we will definitely be back.
Blacktail is a wonderful lounge and bar for a drink with a friend of group of friends. You feel like you are on vacation!!! Recommend highly for drinks service and ambiance!!
Fun place!! 2nd visit!! One of the best cheeseburgers ever
There were 5 of us and we split 5 or six tapas .
In the battery park ever!
Fantastic drink menu, amazing rum selection available by 2oz pour and great food. Music is a bit loud, not a place for an intimate conversation but the decor and general vibe made for an awesome night
Exceeded expectations. Great atmosphere, excellent professional service and the drinks. Wow. The drinks. You don’t get ranked #41 in the world by accident.
Sunday nights they have live jazz and it is really good. Has a local vibe. Highly recommend this place.
Loved BlackTail - fantastic ambiance, incredible drinks, and delicious light bites.
This place is simply the best! The service is perfection and the ambiance is beautiful. The drinks and food are top notch. Reservations are highly recommended and worth it. Can’t wait to visit again.
We went here on a first date, and the place was amazing. The drinks were great. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. They seated us at a sofa, where it was quiet and we could really talk. Fabulous place.
I really love it everything in that place, food, cocktails, music and service. I recommended already all my friends. Amazing experience. Thank you.
It’s a great setting for a first date. The live music was too much- it was too loud bc they’re set up right near the tables. Honestly, we left bc we couldn’t hear each other.
Amazing cocktails and food. The Cuban sandwich is a must try. Our server was efficient and gracious. We had a lot of fun. Oh, try the churros as well. My partner is not into sweet but he loved them.
Great ambiance and inventive (though expensive) cocktails. However, all but one of the dishes we ordered were awful. Plus so over the top loud we could barely have a conversation at our small table. Unless you’re into incredibly noisy, expensive bar scene, I don’t recommend this place.
Everything about this cocktail bar is designed to create a great ambiance for good conversations with your guests. But, I guess the place is too popular because the tables for two are tightly packed side to side. I had a reservation but I felt like they were doing me a favor to give me a table for two crowded between two other similar tables. We might as well have been a party of six for how close we were. Dark fancy bars with $18 drinks should do better than that.
Wonderful absolutely wonderful service and quality of our drinks and appetizers
Went to Blacktail last Saturday night. Food was amazing, small plates . Service was really, really slow and it didn't look overly busy. Drinks, overpriced and not worth the money. I understand the bar area being a cuban theme, what I don't understand is not having a view of the beautiful harbor and especially the statue of Liberty in the actual restaurant area. Seems like kind of a waste.
Would I go back, probably not. Would I recommend them to a friend? No
Hidden gem in Battery Park. Amazing views and a HUGE bar downstairs. The Cuban theme 1920s is great and the drinks were delicious. The drink book gives a great history. The cauliflower was over the top and the steak tartare was good. Small plates to enjoy.
This was a great place to go on a date night that was intended to be both fun and romantic. While the room is a bit noisy with music playing, it was still fun and appropriately themed. The drinks were all fantastic and creative, and the food was done very well. All that said, the drinks are on the pricey side of craft cocktails, and the food was not consistently at any great value. Without any windows to the outside, it did help the allusion of being at a Cuban-themed speakeasy, but the location and premises do not really beg for a return experience.
Great drinks and very attentive server! Loved the live music too. I’d recommend making a reservation - it can get really busy
Best cocktails in the city
The bar was placed in a very scenic location, making it ideal for the style of bar. The cocktails were of amazing quality, as too the ambience. Did not dine in, but was happy to sit through a few rounds of cocktails.
Amazing cocktails, great location, awesome atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Awesome food and drinks!!!
Absolutely delicious! Frisée salad, empanadas, prawns, mushroom cavatelli, hamburger and tres leeches were all outstanding! Can’t wait to return on our next trip to the city!
Visiting NYC after living here for years. Went to see the band which was awesome. Loved Blacktail!
Blacktail is one of my favorite cocktails bars in NYC. We're known for great cocktail bars in NYC but this place has the best customer service and an extensive amount of yummy drinks. Food is good but it's the service that is amazing.
I loved it hear! Cool vibes. AMAZING COCKTAILS. Good music.
Great atmosphere, great service, wonderful location.
