    This restaurant used to be our favourite. Now it feels it’s just a tourists hole. Nothing special about this place anymore. Bad quality food, they’re obviously cutting corners.

    It’s been over 12 months since the last time I ate at “black” and it has been a tough 12 months due to my mental illness. The atmosphere and great customer service made this experience really really good. Thank you for a great night filled with great food. I hope my mental illness gets better so I can eat here more often

    We all went for the cape grim fillet steak and it was not hot when served to us (Luke warm in fact) and the meat really dry. They cooked new steaks for us and this time it was juicy but well done even though the order was medium. Then the restaurant manager offered to cook another steak again (3rd time) and we said no that is ridiculous. Our friends already finished their main and you’re cooking a steak for the 3rd time. Really really disappointed in this restaurant. Looks nice on the surface but it’s not a steak restaurant. Oysters were delicious and wine list was good too ( but the bottle of red was $200 so it should be good). They gave us complimentary dessert but would have preferred the original order to be done right to start with! Wait staff was really nice but manager not so!!

    The best part of the meal was the mac 'n cheese side dish. The rib eye steak was a bit tough and both steaks we had didnt have enough seasoning and we had to ask for salt. We have had a few average meals there and won't be going back. If you charging $60 for a 300g steak it should be perfectly cooked and seasoned.

    I come to black a lot, and what’s the food was delicious as always this time the staff just appeared to be tired… There was an occasion where my wine glass sat empty for five minutes before I poured the wine from the decanter myself.. nothing major but it’s these little things that make a difference. Also I don’t understand why they put seafood in their chimmichurri or their bernaise ... as Someone with a seafood allergy I I find it frustrating that the sauces contain seafood.

    We had a very disappointing experience last night at your restaurant. We were celebrating our 27 year wedding anniversary. Your restaurant is renowned for its steak. My wife ordered a rib eye medium well. What she got was a rare steak with blood pouring out of it and it was very chewy to eat. Because we were so hungry and didn't want to cause a scene, we just ate it and let the waiter know we weren't happy. Also the peppercorn sauce was all runny and no peppercorns in it. I don't quite understand how your chef could allow such a steak and sauce to be served in this manner.

    Not a place for celebration. The first chef hatted restaurant that tastes worst than everyday dining. If you like mixed up orders and mediocre food, you'll have a good time here. Just truly disappointing in every aspect.
