One of my favourite restaurants
August 09, 2014

Blackshop is one of my favourite restaurants for lunch or brunch. The menu is very appealing with an interesting variety and good selection of dishes; likewise, there is a very good beer and wine selection. The food has always been excellent, consistently, on every visit. Service is always professional and pleasant. On our most recent visit, we dined outside on the patio for the first time as... more

Perfect Patio for Outdoor Dining

My son and I went to Blackshop for a birthday dinner ! All the food and drinks were excellent - from appetizers through to entree and finally dessert. Not our first visit and definitely not our last. We will be sure to return !

Enjoyed the food, very tasty and well balanced. The service was excellent, cannot say enough about that, the waitress was knowledgeable and very helpful with the beverages....she made iced tea without sugar from an actual pot of tea (not a can). She answered all my questions as I was not familiar with the menu, it was my first time at your establishment. I thought the evening as a whole was an... more

Amazing Dining
July 22, 2014

Drove by this restaurant many times, and finally decided to have dinner for my boyfriend's birthday. It is just as good as all the reviews I have read up on for this restaurant. The ambiance is great, the food was delicious, staff very friendly and quick service. We had a great time!

Everything was GREAT
July 16, 2014

From the moment we walked in we were greated with VERY friendly staff. We were shown to our table (outside)right away. Our waitress greated us in a VERY friendly manner and was VERY gracious thought the whole evening. The atmousphere in the outdoor patio was the best I have seen in any restruant in the Waterloo region.

Brunch
June 20, 2014

The food was excellent, great variety. What really stood out though was the service. Our waitress truly went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed ourselves and the rest of the staff there seemed equally engaged with our visit. It honestly was a very memorable experience and I will be telling my friends and family about it and encourage they visit.

Great food...slow service
June 19, 2014

We really enjoyed our meal here. The food was great! Unfortunately it was a long drawn out meal due to the slow service. It was a very long time in between our apps and main course (45minutes). Rather than apologize and/or give an explanation our waitress simply avoided us during this time.Perhaps this was an off night, but not sure I would take a chance on returning as a result.

Always Good, As Expected
June 14, 2014

We had a great meal celebrating Father's Day. Only drawback was that my daughter forgot that she didn't like the banana-like sauce that came with her salmon dish. Maybe change up the sauce once in a while?

Excellent Find
June 13, 2014

We celebrated Father's Day on Saturday, June 14th. The service was excellent, as was the food. Our only complaint was that the tables were very close together. We could overhear the conversation at the next table, and felt that they were listening to ours as well. It was a bit disconcerting.

Our friends from Florida group, met once again for lunch (brunch) at Blackshop. One couple surprised us by flying from Nova Scotia to join in our little celebration. The staff was so accommodating when another couple showed up (reservation was for 15). The food was excellent, as it has been any time we visit. Our first experience was a Mothers Day Brunch at least 4 years ago. We have never been... more

This is truly a gem. When we got there I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday and we wanted a more secluded table.
When it came to the dessert my husband's dessert had a candle and Happy Birthday in chocolate sauce lettering on the plate.
This was such a nice touch and they certainly went the extra mile doing this.
We did mention that the appetizer was not hot enough temperature wise and... more

Excellent restaurant!!!!
June 04, 2014

Went for our 33rd anniversary. Our first, but certainly not last visit at that restaurant. My wife had the Peppercorn Steak and I had the Top Sirloin, the best I ever had anywhere on this planet, and I indeed have had that dish at quite a few restaurants on both sides of the Equator over the past several years. Our waiter, Steve, truly went out of his way to make our meal a superb experience. I... more

Pleasant
June 02, 2014

One of the better restaurants in Cambridge. It has a sheltered out door area as well as a more traditional patio. The inside is broken into several rooms and a bar area. The bar and the main area with its fireplace can be noisy. It was when were were there last. And the place was far from full.The food is good and reasonably priced. The pasta special was very tasty. The scallop appetizer was... more

Night and Day

This was our second experience with The Blackshop in a couple of weeks. This experience was like night and day compared to the previous occasion. The service was impeccable. We were even informed of daily specials. The appetizers and entrees were incredible which is what we have always enjoyed at The Blackshop. The flavours and presentation were perfect. It was a most enjoyable evening. I would... more

The room we were in looked like it hadn't been updated since the 80's. The steak had very little taste to it, especially considering how much you pay for it! The service was pleasent, but I probably wouldn't attend again

Great Cambridge Find!
May 06, 2014

Took a shot on this for my cousin's 21st birthday. What a treat. Even though we hadn't booked in a separate room, our hostess immediately suggested we may want more privacy (i thought this was a great value-add instead of being plunked down to someone else). The ambiance is fantastic and my husband (both a foodie AND wine-o) immediately dove into their offerings. We really had a great... more

Great Experience
April 26, 2014

We visited your restaurant with Canadian/Swiss friends. They are very particular about all aspects of restaurants including food, service and ambience. They have no problem expressing their opinion if something is not up to par. In your restaurants they were most impressed and could not say enough about an excellent dining experience. Of course my wife and myself fully agreed with their... more

Girls night out
April 25, 2014

Four of us decided to try Blackshop for dinner before going to the Dunfield Theatre. It was the perfect choice as we were able to take our time having dinner and chatting. It was quiet in the restaurant so we were able to enjoy our conversations without having to raise our voices. It was a very enjoyable evening and I would recommend Blackshop for a nice evening out. I am from Toronto and plan... more
