We ate at the bar after a long day of walking around the city and both the drinks and food were very good. Good service, big portions and a lot of taste.

Stopped in for a late lunch when arriving in the area. We all were happy with our lunch choices. Note that some of the choices could have easily been shared. There was a mix up on our order but was quickly corrected. It was a quaint little bar/restaurant. We were the only ones there in the late afternoon so not... More

After a day at Afropunk Fest, we were looking for something to eat at a late hour and Black Swan was the only place open in the area we were in. I ordered a portobello sandwich with a salad. It came to me with fries instead. I reminded the bartender that I ordered a salad and it arrived twenty minutes... More

Great pub food and happy hour don't go there if your looking for a heavy dinner. Multiple appetizers should be sufficient! Def get the Mac n cheese and Thai wings!

We went for dinner here at about 6:30 and the bar was already busy. We sat at the tables in the back and usually I don't like loud music (hard to have a conversation) at dinner but it suited this place. It was an all around good time with attentive and friendly service. A great beer selection (I got a... More

My boyfriend and I love heading to black swan. It is in walking distance of our home and its a nice like hangout. There are always daily specials on drinks which is good. They also have basketball and soccer nights. The food is also pretty good. I love the black swan salad, their bloody mary, and their brunch.

Spent a few days in Brooklyn, it was nice at the end of the long days to have a few beers and something to eat, the range of beers were good, the food was always well cooked and the service was always friendly. They also show Prem football on a Sunday morning that I didn't take advantage of. If you... More

I was back in Brooklyn for a few days and I really wanted to go back to either Do or Dine or Sud, until I read all the great reviews of Black Swan. It did not disappoint! They've got a respectable beer selection (which is saying a lot, since every place in the area has an amazing beer selection!). I... More

First time visiting, had calamari, thai wings, chopped salad (could be better). The calamari was seasoned well, thai wings were sweet. The chopped salad wasn't bad, but we ate that last. Food is an experience and so having ate that last it was a let down. Staff is friendly and I will be back for the chicken and waffles and... More
