We eat here at least twice per year when we visit family and friends in the area. The staff is very professional and friendly. The bar is always lively and offers additional high top table seating if you are looking for a more casual experience. The main dining room is classic steakhouse with dark wood, mirrors and the amazing bull... More

After being seated and not seeing our waiter for the first 5+ minutes, I started to remember why we hadn't been to Blackstones in over eight years. Yes, it was Christmas Eve and crowded, but with the prices this place charges, there's no excuse for bad service. The first drink delivered to the table was wrong. We couldn't get our... More

This is one of our favorite places to go when we are craving good steak. The choices on the menu are vast and include fresh raw clams, crab, lobster and shrimp along with some of the best steaks we've ever had! The side dishes are delicious as well. The main dining room is a little formal for our tastes, so... More

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
