what happened to the menu? It is now about half the size as it previously was, there is no expresso rubbed filet mignon, seared tuna, pasta, mini-burgers, salmon and the $35.00 prix fixe menu has disappeared.

Been here several times - love the food, drinks and atmosphere but the service couldn't be more consistently disappointing. I'll definitely go back (especially on nights they have live jazz) but will anticipate a long wait and minimal service.

My friend & I share close B-days & came here to have a birthday dinner. Walking in, there is a cozy lounge & pretty fireplace to greet folks. We were joined by a 3rd friend who had spoken w/waitress B4 we got there to share that it was our B-days & also mention my friend needs a quiet table due to a hearing challenge. In honor of our B-days, the waitress told our friend she would get a rose & then strewed the petals on our table. This was a lovely surprise awaiting us at our (quiet) table. We found it a wonderful & special touch. The waitstaff made other food & beverage accommodations that were quite considerate & meant a lot to us. We decided to do the pre-fixe. Our tantalizing old-fashioned strawberry shortcake dessert came complete w/B-day candles. The 2 B-day gals found the food delicious--our 3rd friend found it OK. All in all, we were quite pleased w/the evening & a nice way to mark our B-days.

To the last reviewer.... why would a manager want their customers beaten up... did you not say, "they came out and calmed down the situation?" I have eaten there and if anything the staff and management there are very polite to all the guests, that's what I have seen.

Food was subpar - ordered pasta and the noodles came out far from al dente. In addition they seemed short staffed, they didn't seem to have a host or hostess, and it wasn't the easiest getting service which normally isn't too much of a problem unless you experience an altercation with sidewalk passerbys. Some guy from the street was thrown onto the outdoor table beside us sending the poor lady's entree, drinks, table and chairs flying. Then these street guys started fighting whereupon we all had to move out of the way. You would figure for such a small restaurant the waitstaff and manager would be out there right away with all the commotion. While they eventually did come and calm the situation down, our dining experience was ruined, and the manager appeared non-chalant and unconcerned for his guests which was best summed up when he said "don't worry everybody, we aren't charging for the show"

Service was best we've had in a while. Waitress was very nice. There was 3 in our party- Bro had crabcake appy and waisabi tuna-Said all were excellent-Husband had steak & fries- he said sirloin was perfect. I had price fixed.-Lovely salad, meaty fish and for dessert a delicious, flakey Eng. crumpet with cream and cranberry jelly. We had 2 gl. wine and one ice tea and bill was only $135. Only drawback was restaurant was a little dim-romantic however I wasnt on a date. Idefinately would return when I'm in the neighborhood

My wife and I visited the Black Duck last week - the prices on Happy Hour certainly have changed since last December - drafts now $4 - the $5 cocktails now $9 and the $6 martinis are $11 - to be fair I must mention you can now get a glass of the "house" red or white wine for $5
