Experience was amazing. Jacob was a great server.
We always have a great meal. Drinks were fantastic and steaks were cooked perfectly. Holy fries they definitely give generous portions
Food was excellent. Safety protocols were practiced. Staff was very friendly. Great experience!
3 diners all all had fillet mignon which was excellent! Sides of French fries however were not good. I could have made tastier fries with pkg. of frozen. Service was slow. Dissapointing for a $200+ tab!!
Very good restaurant. Noise level from music was too high, however.
The food was amazing yet the starter seemed less cared for as in cooking. Could have been much crispier
We had a lovely experience at Black & Blue Steak and Crab. Will definitely be going again in the future.
The service and attention to detail were excellent. The steak I ordered was cooked perfectly and was very good. However, I would not rate its worth at $54. I've had much less expensive steaks that were just as good, if not better. The sides I had were asparagus and brussel sprouts. Brussel sprouts were tough and the seasoning on both was just "ok".
Way too over priced for the amount you get.
Great food. Exciting ambiance. Our server was first rate...diligent, informative and very friendly. My wife and I have been here before on several occasions and always loved it. We went most recently because our daughter was home visiting and we wanted to take her out for a nice meal. We were not disappointed!
Everything was good.they sat us on time,service was good, large portions . I was thinking about Salmon until they said farm raised,that's a deal breaker for me. needs to be wild.
Love it there - the decor is gorgeous and staff are so courteous. The food is always excellent and they give you plenty.
Customer service was excellent and so was the food!
Very fine meal we always come here when we’re in Albany
Oysters and Tartare just delicious for apps, porterhouse steak and rack of lamb with mashed potatoes was scrumptious as our main dish and we shared the banana cream trifle, which was just delightful; it was a wonderful night out
Our first time there an our first time out since March. Food was excellent as was the service. Not crowded and very quiet.
Food and service were fantastic. Not for the faint of wallet, but the quality and presentation make it worth the price. Alex H., our server, was attentive and informative. Water glasses were quickly refilled as needed. Steaks are high quality and Salmon was superbly cooked and presented.
We had the oysters, that was delicious. We both had the steak fillet, New York strip,and shared the mashed potatoes. Excellent service
Fantastic evening, food was excellent, service was wonderful. Thanks!
Dinner was excellent service fantastic
Great service and food is always excellent
My boyfriend and I were so impressed with our date night at Black & Blue. We made a reservation a few days in advance and we were seated as soon as we arrived. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, and our sides and appetizer were delicious. Their wine selection is one of the best! We shared a bottle of red wine and it was an excellent pairing with our dinner. We didn’t have anything left on our plates to take home for leftovers - everything was that good! Our waitress was so sweet and attentive, she really made our night out enjoyable. 10/10 would recommend!
As always, we had a wonderful evening! The food was fabulous, the wait staff was friendly and helpful and the pace was perfect for a night out with friends!
Always a great meal at Black & Blue. The steak and seafood was amazing, and our wait staff was fantastic! This is our 4th or 5th time there and it is highly recommended!
Staff was incredible! Very friendly and attentive.. our waiters recommendations for our meals was perfect! Steaks were cooked to perfection as well. Great experience!
Menu is large and offers plenty of choices. Prices are high but food is excellent. Service was great, very attentive but never rushing you.
Great meal .very cautious regarding COVID-19 protocol.
Had a very nice dinner at B&B. The calamari and she-crab soup were excellent starters. But the 10 oz filet (truffle butter) and rack of lamb (red wine demi glace) were the starts. Brussel sprouts an asparagus were great sides, but the service size was sufficient that we could have shared one. They did make good leftovers though. A bit pricy at $20 a glass but the Daou Cab. Sav. was a perfect choice with the entrees.
Special thanks to Lisa, Henry, and Joe for the friendly service. A great staff is always a plus to great food.
We will be back- actually already reserved
A wonderful meal with a great atmosphere, and they have very safe protocols in place due to the pandemic. Very safe!
1. Appetizers took a while.
2. Crab bisque - no flavor - bland - served warm.
3. Steak special was not tender.
** Birthday desert was very good.
You will never have a bad meal here. Food and service are top notch. Everything on their menu is absolutely amazing. Cant recommend this place enough!
We felt the seating was appropriate and safely distanced. Servers wore maaks and were cordial and helpful. Excelllent food
As always, the food, specialty drinks, and the service were second to none. Lobster tail was huge, sweet and tender. Filet mignon was cooked perfectly, tasty, and tender. So glad I can get Bearnaise sauce here. Shrimp cocktail and tuna tartar were tasty and well presented. Great way to spend my birthday! Thanks!
Great atmosphere and service. Appetizers were tasty. My friend and I each ordered fish as our main entree; salmon was a bit on the salty side, and the grouper was okay. Perhaps a steak choice would have been better on the pallet.
Everything was great. Looking forward to going again
For the price, I expected a bit higher quality of food. Went for our anniversary, received a complimentary champagne toast. Best old fashioned ive ever gotten from the bartender, so props there. Apps were good, kind of generic, nothing special, got a ceasar salad and crab cake app. Dinner was not terrible, but.certainly didnt wow me either for the nearly 250 I spent between two people. Extremely large asparagus (tough), bay scallops add on were two small (maybe 1oz) scallops. Steak flavor was exceptional, but mine was overcooked, escpecially for a steakhouse (MR bone in dry aged strip). Sides were enough for two-people. Server was very attentive until we placed our entree order, then didnt return to the table until after the meal was finished. Overall 3/5 for me personally, I had much higher expectations of a "high end" steakhouse. Next time I will go to 677.
Very nice atmosphere and excellent service. My steak melted in my mouth and my friends also enjoyed the rack of lamb. Very very careful about social distancing and meeting at the door and separating booths and tables. I have not been eating outside recently but would not feel uncomfortable going back again to this restaurant.
First time here. Service was great and restaurant is beautiful. Cow boy steak was good but the seafood tower was excellent. A little on the pricey side, great for special occasions.
Ribeye was fabulous accompanied by side of mushrooms. But 14$ is a little steep but who wants a steak without mushrooms. Scallops were a disappointment. Too heavily seasoned. Chocolate martini was a nice end to the evening. Would go back again!
We drove 2.5 hours from Syracuse to celebrate our anniversary here. The staff was absolutely amazing and the food was right on par. We ordered a filet and the rack of lamb - both entrees came out cooked perfectly. The pace of the meal was perfect as we also ordered an appetizer - the crab and lobster fondue. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough! We will definitely make the trip again!
