Black & Blue - Borough Market
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.
Food was good but service was not great. Both bottles of wine were poured without tasting first. The salad and water were just plonked at the end of the table. Overall service was slow, pleasant but slow.
Good quality food from short menu, seating for 6 table was a bit cramped, great staff and fast service.
This was our second visit. Excellent service, good choice of food, beer & wine. We always feel well looked after & would return.
first time I had been there, service was very good but they got one of the main orders wrong. However they quickly put it right and offered a salad while they were waiting. The food was very good, I had sirloin and wife had chicken Caesar salad, both excellent. the music got very loud at one stage. the venue was very busy but it was a Friday night in borough market. will go again but not on a Friday night!
Reasonable value, service somewhat erratic.
Nice location, clean. fast and efficient service and good food
Great service. Great food. Good atmosphere. They very kindly squeezed us in even though I had messed up the booking on a busy night. Very grateful. Could have stayed much longer but trains to catch.
Comfortable place for a early Sunday dinner. Good food and excellent offer on all bottles of wine.
Superb staff , faultless , food was great bar area was really welcoming and some very good offers on Wine on a sunday , felt very well looked after
The food was excellent and we throughly had a good time. However it was a unanimous decision to go onto to another bar as the music was ridiculously high. Had it not been we would have stayed all night getting in more drinks etc. So that’s a real shame.
Dined here for my birthday, lovely food and th ambience was great.
The staff were friendly and acknowledged the occasion. Thanks.
Fantastic service and food was delicious, will definitely be back.
Fantastic venue. Nice food. Awesome staff.
We should have listened to other reviews and gone somewhere else. Food ok. Service absolutely shocking. Was told at ten pm last orders for drinks then another table comes in and is served food and drink. Felt rushed and hurried all evening. Rude waitress told us to hurry up as she needed to get train home and her wages so bad she could not afford an Uber. Expect more when you spend £200 for dinner for two. Never again
Staff are Very good and prompt when serving. Just took a long time to get the bill. Ended up waiting 20 minutes for it. Other than that, the food and restaurant were lovely
From start to finish, it was great!! My partner thought his steak was amazing, I loved all the flavours of my burger, his T bone was good!
Staff were brilliant ! Friendly, very helpful and happy!
I had planned on desert for the birthday boy but we ended with cocktails that tasted fantastic!
Really pleased that we chose this restaurant for his birthday, would definitely do again - food and and staff on point!!
Second time I've been here and I love this place, the steak frites is delicious. Nice relaxed atmosphere, attentive service. Ill definitely be back
Lovely meal 😊 Great service. Would definitely recommend it and will definitely be going back.
Sadly we had a table for 6 and were squeezed into a booth! Really uncomfortable as had no room to eat properly! Food was poor and service not great
I’ve been to the restaurant a few time but it was the first time for the guys with me. They loved it, thought the food was great and really well prices and a good drinks selection.
Excellent as always! Great food, service and value for money!
Really nice atmosphere at Black and Blue. Food was great service was good. Only marked down as she brought the wrong drinks to us but wouldn’t let that stop me booking again. Would recommend for a great night out as a couple or with friends
One of the Waitress was no welcoming. Felt rushed. Food was just okay. Teas weren't hot.
Good food... but the drinks are over priced...what you save in lunch time 2 course deals is ruined by the over expensive wine by the glass and beer in a bottle...
Very pricey- for the portions you get. The cocktails at £10, were not good enough to warrant such a high price tag (I fouy are a bloody mary enthusiast, you will be leave wanting). We had breakfast, the portions were miniscule, and to pay £1 for extra bacon, and be served a single solitary slice, that was cold on a seperate side plate was laughable. I suggest they make their plates smaller or serve more food, it all looked a bit- mean. I would stick to steak if going to this restaurant again, and avoid breakfast. Brunch is not this restaurants forte. Having said that, it was clean, the staff were nice, and it had a nice ambiance.....but so does a pub, and wont leave you £100 light after a breakfast for 4 people (who had one drink each).
One steak was ok but the Sirloin was very chewy - for the money had a lot better. the service was good though
Good menu with lots of choice. Friendly service. Didn’t think that it was necessary to have a DJ at a restaurant. Luckily, we were sitting upstairs, so a little away from the music.
Food was average and returned
A starter. Rib eye steak not a great cut of beef. Service was strecthed and we had to ask several times for water, more drinks and dessert menu. Not attentive service which implies more staff are required. Pre-dinner bar service was very good.
Great place been a few times always good
Excellent meal, pleasant, friendly, efficient waiting staff. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be coming back soon.
The food and wine was excellent, We asked the staff if they could turn down the ‘live music’ which they did with no problems. Already have and would still recommend this restaurant.
Food and service very good with a great ambience though acoustics make it quite noisy
Had a very nice relaxing meal with my wife. Food was fantastic we both had the fillet steak and both was cooked to perfection.
Very friendly staff. We will definitely go there again.
Good place to meet up with friends. Staff were very friendly and efficient.
Been here about 6 times now and never disappointed.
The staff engagement upon arrival is lacking energy and urgency. Simply appoint a single member of staff (there were frequently many standing around looking bored) to meet and seat guests as they walk in. This would have gained 2 stars on my review.
We used to love this place. Always reliably good food. This time it disappointed, though. I had lamb and my friend had a steak. Both completely under seasoned and needed a healthy dose of pepper and Salz. The lamb wasn't good quality, probably cheap New Zealand import, didn't try the steak. Service was great, though, friendly and always there when we needed it.
One of the best steaks I’ve had in sometime pre show meal last Wednesday - one of our group has s serious nut allergy - the waitresses were very knowledgable and couldn’t do enough for us / excellent all round
Lovely food with excellent service. We will be returning!
I have been visiting black and blue for over 2 years now and if anything the service and my expectations always get exceeded. Love this place !
