Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wow, what fantastic service, great greeting and friendly hospitality. Brilliant understanding of dietary needs and didn't make us feel awkward for having them. Food was generous, beautifully presented and delicious.

This has got to be my fav. Restaurant. The food choices are amazing and the food itself is delicious. Great service. I had slow cooked lamb. My wife had the salmon plate. It's worth travelling all the way out to Lincoln. Yum. We'll be back.

First of all, exceptional service straight from the start. We were welcomed and taken to our table which was a pretty spot for two people. We were immediately provided with water and asked if we would like a drink to start. Our drinks came out...promptly and we were asked if we wanted anything as a starter. This was perfect as we were hungry and definitely keen for entree's. We got the croquettes and they were all good. 3 potato croquettes filled us up and they were tasty. Our mains soon followed and our drinks were replenished. I got the soft tacos with added pork belly. Not bad for $36. Good flavour and i was so full I could burst. My Fiance got the Rigatoni with salmon. Again decent for $36. The flavors were good and she was full. Pretty good result really. Once again the service was amazing and we will defintieely be going back. The only feedback I can give is that we were a little bit cold. Overall really happy with our experience and highly reccomendMore

From the moment we walked in and were greeted to the moment we left the service was perfect. On top of this were drinks well made, and food that simply was some of the best we have had. It was well priced and worth every...cent. Thank you so much.More

I live by and this place has been one of my favorites. I made a successful payment during the last visit but was told the payment wasn’t made when I gave them a call after noticing I may have potentially left an item. Since it...was undercharged on the statement, I returned to this place to pay the difference. I was treated like an escaped customer and their attitude remained the same after they acknowledging the fact. I paid the difference instead the full amount I was initially asked to pay. Please consider how your customers would think if you just blame them. I really liked the place but no way I can go back as sure you still think me as an escaper.More

Went with a group for a pre-Christmas treat, really exceeded expectations. Interesting variety of cocktails - the couple I sampled were excellent. Fish of the day was beautiful, vegetables were fresh and perfectly cooked, and the rest of the group loved their meals too. Service...was great even though the place was fairly busy, and the staff were patient, helpful and good humoured. Will be back again, the rest of the menu looked equally appealing and keen to try more of the cocktails!More

I love going to a a restaurant and tasting fine food and savouring uniquely cooked food that is creative and full of flavour. What a lovely unexpected surprise to discover Black Door. The food was amazing. The place was extremely busy with staff almost running...to keep on top of things! The staff were friendly and personable.

It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was pretty full. We didn't book but they were able to accommodate us which was great. The entrees were delicious especially the sticky pork belly! Unfortunately there was a mix up with my order but they were...quick to resolve and didn't charge for it. Overall it's a lovely restaurant, yummy food and the staff were super attentive. Will definitely go back to try the rest of the menu.More
