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.

Tiny over priced portions. Fillet steak was minute and £30. Couldn’t have been more than 150g. It’s a shame because the service, location and ambiance are great

Me and my partner went for an early lunch and we must say we have a lovely experience. The food was lovely, we both had the pave rump and It was lovely and had great value for money. The service we received from the restaurant was brilliant. They could not have done any more to make sure that we were comfortable and had a nice time. I would really recommend dining at black and blue.

Not clear from website that only a reduced menu was on offer. No ribeye steaks so fillet steaks( the more expensive option) were ordered. Food well cooked but made the evening expensive. Excellent service and good provision for Covid precautions. Would return when full menu available.

We were seated near the temporary exit door but the smoke drifted in over our food so that could have been better also at this time of COVID-19 you should enforce people to only exit the exit door not us it to have a short cut to the toilets

We went for a late lunch but then asked if we could move it forward an hour which they did. The food was lovely as usual, a limited menu at the moment but completely understandable. Nothing will put us off coming to black & blue.

Amazing restaurant, the food was to die for and the staff who served us was just phenomenal! So happy and friendly and they couldn’t do enough to make the experience enjoyable.

It was really good to see the restaurant have put steps in place to keep their guests safe Following on from our previous visit before Covid-19.

Thank you so much.

Our second visit to this restaurant - this time for Sunday Lunch, with a party of 9 to celebrate a family birthday. Booking was simple on Open Table and a later increase in our numbers was quickly arranged via an email exchange with the restaurant directly. A reminder / confirmation email the day before the event was appreciated. I had asked for a booth under the arches and we had a very nice booth reserved with plenty of room for the 9 of us. The restaurant is modern and well appointed, subtly designed
providing a high quality look and ambiance. The service was quite excellent - attentive, cheerful, friendly and responsive without being 'hovering'. Pleasantly surprised to find half-price wine on Sundays (and Mondays) - which helped with the celebratory nature of our visit. Jugs of iced water arrived as we sat down. We were pleased with the menu selections. The food was very good, arrived promptly for each of us, nice and hot. About half of us had the 'fixed' lunch menu - which had good choices and the standard was really very good when it arrived. The a la carte choices generated great responses from our guests. We had good size portions and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Deserts were varied and really pleasant. We indulged in coffees and cocktails which all arrived swiftly and were excellent. The bill was surprisingly reasonable - I was very impressed with the value for money - particularly in the heart of London. [I remembered this from our first visit and was pleased to be pleasantly surprised again]. The restaurant is under the railway arches and while, if you were alert for the trains you could just about hear the odd pass, - I think I was the only one of our party to do so. We were really well looked after by our server and as you can probably tell; I would happily recommend the place to others.

Steak either tough (myself & husband) or virtually raw (my daughter). We all ordered medium rare and all love a good quality steak. Very disappointing. Service friendly.

Sirloin nowhere near steak quality levels needed for a steak restaurant. Could barely cut it. And it is not cheap either. Disappointing. The staff and restaurant itself was nice enough but the food let it down.

Always reliable, could do with upping the anti with the sides (fries, chips etc), need to be a bit more creative. We were in a rush and asked for the service to be brisk, which it was. All good.

We took a friend for their birthday because we had been several times and raved about the chicken wings and lamb cutlets, so you can imagine our disappoinment when we were told there were no chicken wings after ordering due to the delivery being late! Other than that disappointment everything else was fine and we just hope next time we go we get our chicken wings : )

Sunday 10AM reservation....restaurant was quiet, maybe because of poor weather. We had 8 friends together and had a very comfortable breakfast. Food, service and comfort were all good, and of course importantly we could hear each other for a chat. We tend to meet up monthly and go to a range of breakfast venues, this restaurant compares favourably so we will return.

Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the service. The choice of music was not what I had expected and slightly ruined the ambience of the venue and occasion (valentines).

Overall would definitely come back again and loved the taste and presentation of the food. Thank you for a great experience.

Great location next to Borough Market and not far from London Bridge station. Excellent service and good food. On this occasion just a little disappointed with the size of my Cote de Boeuf (for 2 to share) which was a little on the small side. Would have given 5 stars if it had been the usual size.
