"It'd been a while since eating at Black's; had a few so-so meals and moved on but wanted to give them yet another shot, and our experience was lacking.
HOSTESSES: Arrived at 7:35 for our 7:45 reservation and told we'd have to wait until our time. No problem but we then watched them seat two other tables of two who'd arrived after us (they stayed tables of two, no one joined them).
cocktail. Wish I'd skipped it, tasted like gin and cucumber (no hint of lemonade or mint).
SERVICE: Hubs ordered a beer, I opted for the Up and Cumber (overwhelming cucumber odor-never experienced this in any cocktail containing cucumber before -it was off putting). Moved this cocktail to the furthest edge of the table until two minutes before we stood up to leave (hubs downed it rather than waste it) and our server never questioned why it sat there untouched (I've always spoken up before but, in our experience, poor service has repeatedly been an area of weakness at Black's and I wanted to see if it has improved). Our server was attentive at the start of our meal and from there it faded. However the busboy was quick to notice when our water glasses were running low.
FOOD: Addie's mussels appetizer was terrific, salmon great, and seafood stew a good hearty mix but exceptionally oily (seafood swimming in good 1/4 cup of oil-perhaps it hadn't been stirred prior to being ladled into the bowl).
Cost:$120
Black's used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Bethesda but it's lack of consistency has us seeking other options.

"The food was well prepared overall. Some of the dishes we tried lacked something to set them apart, which was disappointing considering the somewhat above average pricing. The ambiance to the interior of the restaurant is similarly nicely done, but nothing to specifically get excited about.
Overall, we enjoyed our experience and would probably return. It was very nice. It just isn't quite the right combination of awesome for the price that will bring us back time and again."

"The ingredients and preparation are always very good and the service is almost always attentive and non-intrusive, but the noise level during Sunday brunch makes it difficult to have a conversation. Not only that, a large number of tables in the dining area and the booths in the bar area are within a few feet of the buffet tables. Finally, $7.00 for one of the smallest double espressos I have had in the past few months is annoying."

"there are so many restaurants in Bethesda, but most are mediocre. Went to Black's for dinner twice this week. Has pasta both times for fist course, and it was amazing. I felt like I was in Italy. Had the grilled Mahi Mahi both times, because it was so good. The restaurant is too loud, my only complaint."

"We had lunch here on Saturday and really enjoyed it. In addition to their usual lunch menu, they offered a few other dishes labeled "hangover specials" including a truffle burger, which sounded amazing. We ended up ordering the fish tacos and the catch of the day. Both were excellent. We sat at the bar and the service was great. Can't wait to go back!"

"Below average food. If the food doesn't taste better than my Grocery store it's a bad sign. Chicken Tortilla soup was really bad, it was recommended by the waitress!
Mussels had a bad taste
Shrimp avocado salad was probably the best thing we had and that too was just average.

"Took my friend here for a birthday lunch celebration. We were seated immediately even though our reservations were for 12:30pm, and the restaurant was notably quaint. It wasn't too loud or crowded at all, granted it was a rainy day. The food came out pretty quickly. The oysters were amazing, as usual, and the calamari was seasoned well and a little salty but I prefer it that way. My friend got the fish tacos and he enjoyed those very much. The serving size was fair relative to the price so no complaints there. I also made a note asking the staff to bring out a birthday dessert for my friend as a surprise and they delivered, with a candle and everything! That was a nice finishing touch. I did reduce a star for the service, our waitress was not very knowledgeable about the specials for the day and she took a while to refill our water/ take our drink orders. All in all, a great dining experience with amazing food in a phenomenal location!"

"Bar is always busy and the happy hour specials (Food and Drink) are a good deal. Martinis are excellent and they have interesting flavors with house-made syrups. Seafood is fresh and excellent but there is something here for everyone."

"I have dined at this establishment twice for brunch within the past three weeks so clearly this place made me a fan lol. The options provided for unlimited brunch (best way to have brunch) are a hot bar, a dessert bar, a seafood bar and of course bottomless mimosas, and not just the classic one but different varieties. To tackle all will cost you $55 but if you are not in the mood to tackle all, you have the option to order unlimited from certain bars or you can go the a la carte route. I chose the unlimited hot bar ($25) and the bottomless mimosas ($18) which was plenty for me and a great deal. Kudos to Karen for her cheery attitude and for creating the yummiest omelets, and serving the best prime ribs. She also provided great recommendations for a meatless omelets, it's a shame she does not have a tip jar. Kyle my server was also kind, knowledgeable and hilarious. He was attentive as well which is hard to find at restaurants these days. I am looking forward to dining here again, of course for brunch and sharing the experience with all my friends. So come on down...they have tvs in the bar area so if you want to watch basketball, football, etc, while you eat, that section is the place for you."
