We have been here twice within the last few months. On both occasions the service was terrible. The food is tasty. The brunch offers descent selections however, you have to wait for some items as they were depleted frequently. Despite attempting to contact management several times concerning the terrible service, we have received no response.

My family and I have dined here frequently over the years, but this was the first time that my 2 friends had been here. I was a little worried because it was St. Patrick's Day, and I thought that it might be a little noisy, but despite the fact that the bar was busy and all of the tables were... More

There are a lot of places to eat in Bethesda, and we choose Black's frequently. The choices are varied and always beautifully prepared. They also have great cocktails and a nice wine list, including half-bottles. We always have a a lovely meal with friendly, professional service.

This Bethesda restaurant is our go-to place whenever people visit for business or pleasure. The food is excellent and they offer a good variety. They also have fresh and raw seafood.

I loved the food here--everything was excellent (monkfish, salmon, soups, special appetizer of scallop and potsticker). Service was not quite professional--some hovering without the kind of attention that was needed (refilling water). Tthe noise level on a Friday night, 6:30-10:00 was unbearable for me.

We had to make another trip back to the NIH in Bethesda. Our third within a year and wanted to try another restaurant we had not been to. Blacks is in walking distance of most of the hotels in downtown Bethesda. We reserved a table for two online. The online reservation gives you time choices all day long so we... More

I went with colleagues and it was good. The food was pretty straight forward and done reasonably well but not exceptional. It is perhaps a touch overpriced for what it is, but not much and it was a very satisfactory experience where people enjoyed a wide range of dishes.

This restaurant has always been a staple of mine in Bethesda. I know I can always go there and have a great meal. Their wine menu is extensive and the staff is always available to help with a recommendation. Regardless of what you order for dinner, don't skip out on the dessert!! Their pastry chef is a genius! Everything is... More
