Black Stone Steak House in Norwalk - anyone been?

Looking for some feedback on this restaurtant.

Have heard some good things from coworkers, and am considering it for a special upcoming dinner - but thought I'd seek out feedback from you all.

Has anyone been?

  1. Yes, I have been there.
    When I was there it was maybe a third full in the front. My feeling is that when it fills up it can get very noisy. That's just a pet peeve of mine.
    There is also a full bar in back and another dining area which you would not realize upon first entering.
    From what I recall the food was pretty good except for one major flaw. Being that it is a steak house the steak should be perfect. We ordered the chateubriand for two and the inside was raw, and I mean raw, when we ordered medium rare. Being that it is a large cut of meat (and a beautiful one I might add) getting inside the center is tricky without over cooking the edges. It was a shame. I really hate sending food back so we kind of ate around it.
    Desserts seem to be purchased elsewhere and nothing was real appealing. Not a whole lot of selection of wine by the glass either. It was a "we have chardonnay, pinot grigio, cabernet and pinot noir" type of answer from our server.
    In general it was good, not knock your socks off. Not cheap either but that is expected at steak houses. All this is fixable and they need someone on the line who knows more about how to cook meat.
