Save your money – It is shocking how in such a competitive restaurant market food (and service) can be so average. The $28 halibut accompanied by a mound of starch (called risotto) can be consumed in three bites (four if you remember your table manners). How is it possible that in one of the best cities for bread the offering here was inedible (another chemical experiment in starch gone bad). I was hoping desert would turn around my disappointment. True to form the poached pear was a mound of chopped pears with some melted Toll House chips. Dinner for four including wine and tip ran close to $400. The prices and food here can kill a romantic buzz in no time. Jump in a cab and go to Baltazhar instead. Romance and pleasure are sure to follow.
Excellent cuisine – I went to this restaurant on December 18, 2009 with my co-workers for a holiday dinner. The chef, Hector Tice,
who came out and introduced himself, gave us a breakdown of the meals. I had the salmon with vegetables. It was simply delicious! Awesome! It has been a while since i have gone to a restaurant and felt that my money was well spent. I would recommend this restaurant for its superv service.
Great food. – MY friends & I had a wonderful time there. The food was delicious (I love see food) and the service was excellent. i will definately return.
Great tasty food and service – Loved the food! it was exquisite. Definitely recommending it to friends. The service was excellent too. I'll be back for sure!!!!
The Best !!! – It was a wonderful experience...from the service of the host to the waiter. And the food was excellent...the portion, the temperature of our meal and the flavor. My compliments to the chef !! It was absolutely exquisite !!
Me and my friends will most definitely return for another great get-together and delicious meal !!
Love love the Black Duck – I used to go to the Black Duck all the time when at my former company as it was literally around the corner. Met up with some old co-workers last night at the duck and now i remember why we always go there for after work. Great drinks and friendly staff. Plus they have that sweet loungy couch area in the front for us to hang out. This is a good spot to go in Flatiron for sure. Cannot comment on the food since i have never eaten here...but they do give out little chocolates!!
Very much worth the trip to NYC! – I am a research geek.. My hubby & I wanted something special, but yet different & romantic for our 10 year anniversary. I read the reviews previously posted--although everyone is intitled to their opinion, my hubby & I absolutely loved the place! Hospitality was outstanding, the food was absolutely delicious & the atmosphere was simply cozy & everything that we could have ever hoped for! I was very suprised by our cozy booth with rose petals scattered about & the jazz band playing in the distance. The service was outstanding & Richard, was very accomidating to our needs and wants. Being from Texas, that says a lot! The Black Duck is definately a best kept secret that I am telling ALL my friends about! I can't wait to return!
A BIG Texas thank you for a very memoriable anniversary!
Disappointed – My boyfriend and I made a reservation for Valentines Day at the Black duck and were extremely disappointed. From the $85 per person prefix menu, the appetizers, yellowtail, clams, & scallops were pretty good. However the entrees were awful. The steak was cooked well, while we ordered it medium rare. The lobster was so overcooked it tasted like a sponge. We were already an hour and a 1/2 into dinner and didn't want to send the food back. I haven't seen the regular menu, but will not go back to try it.
Great Duck at the Duck – The Black Duck is mostly known for it's excellent seafood and was just listed under Best Clam Chowders in Best of City Search, I noticed, but this dinner-only restaurant has really high quality steaks too (Filet Mignon, NY Strip, Surf & Turf which is Tuna Loin and Filet). I also asked about the quality of the burger meat and found out they grind the burger meat in-house, I'll try it next time, 15 bucks. They just added Long Island Duckling to the menu!! Which makes sense, I like duck a lot, but am very picky about it. This is the best I've ever had. The breast was pan seared on the skin side so it was very crispy and tender inside served on parsnip puree, yumm, and with an excellent Pomegranate Apple Cider sauce; it also comes with the duck leg prepared as a very well executed confit. ONLY $23!!
DO NOT EAT HERE!!!! – Recently dined here BASED upon all the positive reviews. They are all fake. Apart from getting sick 5 hrs after dinner. the food was mediocre at best...and the help is rude and inconsiderate. It took us 4 hrs to get our meal that was cold, stale and tasteless. If you like food or have any sense whatsoever never eat at the black duck.
