Steak

We believe that to produce the best food, you should work with all your suppliers on a close and personal basis. We acquired our own butchers, Jefferies in Kingston, so that we could control our meat all the way from the abattoir to the table. This helps ensure that our steaks and handmade burgers are of the highest quality.



In 1999, the boys decided that they wanted to bring a high-street, high-quality steak concept to London, Black & Blue and the first modern American steakhouse in the capital, was born.

    We went to Black and Blue for an early New Years eve meal. The staff are friendly and professional, very good service. Three of us had burgers which were top notch and the garlic prawns were delicious! The artichoke starter was also great and plentiful. Would recommend and go again.

    We both went for the rib eye steak with new potatoes and green beans and they were perfectly cook especially as the wife doesn't like blood in her steak, the desserts were delicious and the service as per usual was excellent.

    Covid has obviously reduced the numbers dinning, but the feel of the place was still cosy. As you would expect in a steak restaurant the steak was very good. Lovely friendly fun waitress served us that added to a great Sunday afternoon lunch. Would be happy to return.

    Overall a very pleasant experience, really good food and wine and generally efficient friendly service. The cote de boeuf was amazing, chicken wings tasty but portion a bit small and no chilli sauce! We did get Tabasco when we asked for it. The check back by the server for the main course was made before we’d eaten anything so not good timing and one server was poor at serving the wine - overfilled the glasses and the bottle ran out before the fifth person received any. I should have done it myself which generally I did. That apart we really enjoyed the experience.

    Very average, or somewhat less. Steaks were not tender - which somewhat defeats the point of the visit - although the starters were good! Very tight seating on their banquettes. Not a very enjoyable experience.

    Service was very slow. Took a while to even get drinks. When we decided we wanted desserts at least 2 waitresses walked passed so in the end after waiting we asked for the bill. After another 15 mins we had to ask again.

    The service and setting were great! It is just a pity that some of the food was less than appetising. Some of the salad was wilted and browning and my ribs came out stone cold. Been to their Waterloo branch multiple times and loved it every time. Will NOT be visiting this venue ever again. Not worth the £100+ bill for something we could have cooked fresh and hot at home.

    Took the family out to celebrate an occasion and also visited last week on a business meal. Service was excellent both times and every thing we have eaten was cooked to perfection! The only negative is the absence of any music in the premises or it was too low and covered by the crowd's noise. Given the convenient location, it all adds up to a great dining experience!

    Booked under recommendation. Unfortunately not a great experience, place was lovely, seated fine, food ordered, but after an hour had to enquire where food was. Cancelled starter at this point, main was brought out, but was not cooked as requested. Manager was apologetic, and I can also appreciate that when busy, the food will not be as quick, but its the in-between service which could have made the difference, keeping the diner updated, ensuring the drinks were offered, bringing the warm bread starter out. The manager was apologetic, but its was the combination of events surrounding the food, which left frustration.
