We sat outside on the patio along the pedestrian street during stampede week. Three of us had the halibut poached perfectly in olive oil accompanied by an assortment of root vegetables and peeled cherry tomatoes. The flavor combination was excellent and paired well with the...More

This restaurant has an upscale feel. The food is a little basic but well prepared and very tasty. The service was very professional. We enjoyed our night completely.

Food was really great, service was great. We had a seat by the window which was lovely- there were cushions and blankets and it was good for people watching while we enjoyed our meal. All three courses were delicious.

Great service and absolutely delicious! We had the salmon app, the pork shoulder and the halibut. All were excellently prepared and served beautifully. Oh, and we enjoyed their signature drinks as well. I had a 'clockwork orange.' Delish!

Fully enjoyed Blink last night with two other couples. Zach was very attentive to our needs and one in our party was very "needy". Starting with the cocktails ($13.50 each) that were certainly good enough to order seconds, the night was off to a solid...More

I enjoyed my meal and recommended wines but was disappointed in the portion sizes and how large the prices were. While lovely food I do not see the value. As a business meal it is fine but if it was my own money I'd look...More

Blink flirts with being a great restaurant, but needs a little extra polish. Most of the food was beautiful and delicious. I had some very nice pacific halibut, but was not blown away by the pretty bland salad or any of the desserts that I...More
