I was a little concerned the first time I ate at Black Duck since the place was almost empty, but I had the good fortune of going on James Bond night...where a projector plays an old Bond movie w/o the sound disturbing your meal. It was nice, and the food was even nicer...I truly enjoyed the halibut, and though the menu and the wine list are short...everything is top notch.

I went with my boyfriend on a Friday night. We started off splitting the Crab Cake (which was great) then had Espresso Rubbed Filet and the Pan Roasted Chicken which was amazing. I never order chicken but I'm glad I did. The restaurant is candlelit which gives it a romantic and cozy feeling. They also had a really cool jazz trio that starting playing towards the end of our dinner so we had a few drinks up in the lounge by the fireplace. It was a perfect evening!

I love this little place in the Park South Hotel. Their Espresso Rubbed Filet mignon is the best filet I've had in quite some time, plus they have a killer happy hour 7 days a week!

Although the street is not best location, this is a great little place. Great mellow two piece Jazz and terrific food. Wine list needs alot of work.

The drinks are superb, the staff attentive and even chummy. The entrees are neither middle of the road nor flights of fancy, but if you can't get or don't want Blue Smoke, you shouldn't go wrong here.
