The atmosphere is very nice the food is fine but the service was awful. We were a party of 5 and arrived 6:50 on a Saturday to celebrate my wife's birthday. We ordered around 7:15 salads for everyone and steaks for the entrée. At 5 to 8 we were wondering after 40 minutes where were our salads? We were told... More

Food was amazing! Everything from the appetizers to desert was stunning. Fresh seafood, delicious steak and stunning desert. Top that off with excellent service, fantastic drinks and warm atmosphere and you have a truly wonderful dining experience!

You will simply not find a better steak or better service in CT than at Blackstones. We went here for to have dinner for my cousin's bachelor party and the food was a major hit. The lobster linguine and the NY Strip are both amazing. I've been coming here for a few years whenever I need to celebrate, and have... More

This is our special place to go for holidays, birthdays, etc. Its very quaint, old school type of charm. Steaks are amazing - you get a much larger portion than you do from Capital Grill for the same price or less. Excellent selection, wonderful wait staff that has been with them for years. Its that sort of special place because... More

The ambiance and food at this steakhouse is very old school in a bad way. It could be charming with great food, service, and wine list, but sadly it falls short. The food was mediocre (main courses were good, but apps and sides were bad). The wine list and the server's knowledge of wine is abysmal. Our service was slow,... More

Listing this restaurant this low is a travesty. Great steak and sides, very nice room, and great service. You are made to feel welcome. Large room in the back for parties is great. This is a very good restaurant

This old school testosterone steakhouse is located in a very unlikely strip mall in Norwalk. The ambiance leaves something to be desired, but that's not unusual in this class of restaurant -- better for a business dinner than a romantic one. I started with the Escargot, which was mediocre, and then had the Steak au Bleu (NY Strip with bleu... More

This is an excellent steakhouse, that's all I've ever ordered. The grilled steak with blue cheese (or Gorgonzola?) is one of the best I've had. Good salads and drinks, long wine list, professional service.

We have been here a few times and they never disappoint. The food is phenomenal. The service is even better. Ask to be seated with Mike as your waiter. Can't wait to come back!
