    Intimate restaurant with upscale ambiance. Private dining area upstairs was perfect for our team dinner.

    World class food and service to match. Go with the tasting menu. Each of the 8 courses is a symphony of flavors, immaculately well balanced!

    Lunch prix fixe took over 50 minutes plus a reminder for entree to be served, and pin bones were left in the salmon. Terrific bread plus amazing steak tartare though.

    Foie gras was delish!! Tried the duck and venison, too!! Be open minded when trying the venison. Salad of endives comes in a pancetta basket! Such a cool presentation

    This restaurant can be expensive but at the same time their $25 three-course lunch is the best four-star deal in town. Try the pork belly or whitefish sandwich. Menu changes for dinner. Read more

    Blackbird's newest dish is Cider-glazed salmon with miso, sunchoke, rapini & chamomile vinaigrette. It was inspired by all the planters everyone puts out on their front porch every Fall. Read more

    The prix fixe lunch is very worth it! The beef tartare was very flavorful, and the pear sorbet was spot on.

    The chicken—which is not really just chicken, but chicken stuffed with sausage, a sort of freakishly delicious frankenmeat—comes on a plate that’s been dusted with dehydrated kaffir lime. Read more
