Our meal began with Appetizers as my wife had the 'Steamed Mussels' which she devoured with great enjoyment & cooked perfectly. I had 'Authentic Greek Plate' that contained Greek Feta Cheese with Olive Oil, Oregano and Kalamata Olives served with Pita Bread and Tzatziki Sauce...which was very, very enjoyable and tasteful to eat. The GFC was especially tasty and fresh, no doubt because the owners of The Blackhorn Steakhouse are of Greek origin. Time for the main courses and Marla's 'Steak Neptune' re Charcoal Broiled New York Steak topped with real Crab Meat, Asparagus, and Bernaise Sauce which was steamy hot when arriving at our table and were both thoroughly and succulently enjoyed by my better half I succulently thoroughly enjoyed my 12 ounce New York Sirloin Steak cooked medium - like Marla's steak was - and was also very succulent, I also want to commend our young waitress named Elena who was working double shift yesterday and was very courteous and professional throughout our meal always coming by on regular basis to ensure meal was going tasty and smoothly and brought pickles, bread rolls and soft drinks when we required them. Elena frequently stated 'how is it going, guys' like we were frequent, regular customers. She was also impressed how well we did consuming appetizers, salads, and meals and our friendly banter with her all evening. Also was very impressed by Elena going 'old school' writing down our food orders in small notebook she had with her. She also recited all 5 'specialty' food meals for the evening impeccably without delay by heart and was tempted for a moment to order 1 skewer beef kabob that was on special, but our ride home was upcoming so not 'this time' and peut etre next time 🙂More

Not too fancy to be stuffy, just right. Good quality and relaxed, cozy atmosphere makes this restaurant a preferred location. Tasty food. Servers were consistently topping up water and making sure guests were alright. Good sized desserts as well!

Step back to the 80's or 70's in the decor as you walk in. Very formal and family operated. All Covid regulations managed well. Food was tasty with a broad selection of fare.

Top notch steak, great wine selection, highly professional waitstaff. Prices are well below what you'd expect to pay at a fine dining establishment. Plenty of plaza parking.

Since our last review, thought we’d try this restaurant again, my daughters request for birthday celebration. Very cold reception upon entering, had to ask for appetizers, pickles which are usually out once water is poured. Food was good with exception of my daughters who found...a hair 3/4 way through her dinner. They did remove the cost from the bill. The chef is excellent there. If you have a bad experience and rate then, they’ll hold it against you so better off severing all ties.More

Came here for the first time in mid March. Outside did not look pretty. As soon as I stepped in, it smelt amazing! The family run restaurant of 25 years has great service and food. Very comparable to The Keg. I got garlic bread, NY...striploin, and onion rings.More

The restaurant is situated in a short strip mall next to a meat market with plenty of parking. Once seated we were given a complimentary dish of pickles with bread and we ordered drinks. There is a short but sufficient alcohol menu. If you check...on line you can print off a complimentary appetizer, we selected the bruschetta and garlic bread and both were very tasty. There is a good selection of food groups and orders were placed for steak, veal cutlets and pasta. No complaints. You have a choice of soup or salad with your meal. The salads could use more imagination as the chopped lettuce was drowned in dressing. Ask to have your dressing on the side. The service was friendly and attentive. Overall the atmosphere was conducive to quiet conversation without intruding on other tables. Manager did approach our table inquiring if all was to our satisfaction and socialized on our way out. A pleasant dining experience.More

We celebrated a birthday for my daughter on Sunday June 3. There were 9 people in our party. We have been to this restaurant on several occasions and in most cases we have had wonderful service as well as delicious food prepared to our specifications....Twice we've been disappointed in the last few months. The first time we called with a issue, it was when one member of our family was severely sick just after leaving the restaurant. He was absolutely fine before arriving. He did mention the sauce that came with his seafood dinner was slightly off and stopped using it immediately. When I called about what happened, the person I spoke to insists it was NOT the sauce as all ingredients are purchased and prepared fresh daily. There is a slim chance it may have been something else, but as she did not actually prepare the sauce herself and didn't guide it all day in case someone stirred it with a contaminated utensil leaves me to believe that the message was not even passed on to the kitchen staff. The second time was just a few days ago. The server made several errors when taking care of our party. The first issue was when she removed appetizer plates without asking if we were done. And one person was not done. The second was when she collected the appetizer plates, she tried to collect plates and soup dishes for all 9 of us at once and ended up spilling balsamic salad dressing on 2 people. My daughter had a napkin on her lap so she was ok ( other than the large stain on the table cloth in front of her) and also dripped a considerable amount down the shoulder and sleeve of my sons shirt. The third was when taking our orders. 3 of us ordered the ribeye steak. One was to be medium and two were to be medium rare. Two were fine and one of the medium rare came well done. She just stood there when we told her and asked my daughter to keep cutting in different places to see if it was actually something other than medium rare instead of just taking away the plate and dealing with the error. When she came back, they were out of the ribeye steak and she had to either eat that one or order a strip loin instead and that would take at least 10 minutes to cook. We would no doubt all be almost done by the time she got her meal. The fourth issue was when my daughter's cake came out with sparklers, we all sang and the cake was removed even before the sparklers were done. The cake went into the kitchen, sliced and given to everyone without even asking if we wanted a piece. Some were full and didn't want dessert. Taken by surprise because as one of our favourite restaurants for special celebrations, we now have to search for another. D. SharpMore

May 13, 18. There for Mothers Day and father's b-day (same day). Menu had 1/2L $19 and full 1L $33 for each white and red. After ordering 1L of red was informed $ were per bottle, not per 1L and menus were out of date....Though I could get a half litre?!? I naturally protested to the waitress that it was pretty standard stuff for a steak place to have 1/2 and 1L and that the price suggested that's what it was and not for a bottle (only $2 cheaper than reg. bottle). Issue was not properly resolved, even after speaking w Manager. Was offered a house bottle at $29 - and not wanting to detract any further from our outing took it. After this, waitress was curt if not rude, like I had done something wrong. Steak was properly cooked and meal was fine. Though that's not what I will remember. Will remember having to haggle over house wine while my family waited. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Next time... Keg!More

This restaurant has a nice ambiance and quite cozy. I found the escargot appetizer to be something that needs to be shared as it is quite and overkill for one. The Caesar salad was nicely made and crisp. The tenderloin medallions with green peppercorns was...quite salty. But the cut of meat was tender and juicy. They ran out of the fruits in season and the ice cream was low grade and not creamy.More

You walk into a musty smelling dungeon. You wait over an hour for inedible food. Steak (and everything else on your plate) was drowned in watery wine sauce. Staff not attentive and quite rude.
