Steakhouse
Black & Blue offers a contemporary twist on the classic American steak and seafood house. black & blue's raw bar, private rooms, stunning decor, and extensive wine list make it a consistent city favorite. Priced lower than most competing steakhouses, black & blue has also become a weekly dining stop for many. You are sure to find a wine you like in their 20 foot climate controlled wine rack. The special ultra high-heat broilers cook your steak or chop to perfection, and the seafood is second to none!

Black & Blue never disappoints. Service was excellent and food is always consistent. We came for restaurant week as our second time here and I am very pleased with the way the temperature is cooked on the steaks, I got mine medium and my boyfriend got his medium rare. We will be back!

Food and service were fabulous The Nutella most dessert was out of this world. Truffles with the check is a great idea but I think you need to find a new supplier. They were not creamy but very dry. Maybe trying someone local would be a good idea. All in all I would definitely recommend dining at Black and blue

We went for restaurant week and were very disappointed. There were 2 options for $20.19. The steak was excellent. The salmon was terrible. Dry, overcooked and tasteless. Very disappointing. Two people at our table selected the salmon entrée. BOTH were just a dry, overcooked, unseasoned piece of salmon over an odd mixture which neither party finished. Ambiance was lovely. Service was very good. Dinner? Not so much.

Great food and service, and an outstanding deal for restaurant week. But the nonstop, repetitive, irritating techno (?) music (?) really spoiled the ambience. How about some light classical, soft jazz, or even silence?

Wonderful evening as usual. It was our anniversary and they offered us a chocolate torte for dessert as we cannot have champagne. Food was cooked to perfection and service was excellent. We always enjoy spending time at this restaurant and never have any complaints.

As I said in the comment card I filled out on the night we dined, the entrees were delicious, but the asparagus was rather tasteless. The server and her assistant did an excellent job of anticipating and taking care if our needs. We will probably dine again at Black and Blue.

The place was lovely but freezing cold, we sat in a nice booth and was given complimentary champagne for our anniversary. My order was not piping hot, parsnip purée under my scallops was only warm. Perhaps it’s supposed to be? There lovely knowledgeable servers, just not thrilled with the food. It was good but not excellent for the price.

We've been to this restaurant before and chose it to celebrate a recent special occasion. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. Our reservation was for a Monday night at 7pm. The restaurant wasn't very busy, yet the service was extremely slow. We waited almost 20 minutes for the waitress to come take our drink order and them waited another 20 minutes for the drinks to come to the table. By the time she was ready to take our order, all the specials were sold out. Our server never brought out the butter we asked for and never came by to ask how our dinners were. She did deliver the "surprise" piece of cake we pre-ordered but never asked if anyone else wanted dessert. While the food was good, the service not acceptable for a restaurant of this quality.

Clams to die for, best glass of wine ice ever had, great atmosphere... But the price. Dinner for 2 with drink was over $175. I would not recommend it to a friend because the prices were way more that I would be willing to pay for again. Buffalo has many choices where you could probably get what we got for far less. service was good, though.

We went there for our anniversary dinner and were very impressed. My husband mentioned to the waiter that I cannot eat gluten and they immediately offered to bring me gluten free bed that was warm, they double checked that my meal choice was gluten free, and they surprised us with a complimentary flourless chocolate cake for dessert to celebrate.

Drinks were good.
Appetizers were good to very good
Main dish I had grouper it was average it came with a pesto sauce that was under the fish it was overkill and took up the entire plate and made the dish soupy and maybe cooked a little overdone. My husband had porterhouse - it was ok- I’ve had better. The sides of Mac and cheese very good and sweet potato dumpling that was just ok. Very dry in the center. Service was great.

Great Service, nice ambiance but the tables are very small. Barely enough room to fit 4 adults with drinks let alone food. Calamari was over cooked. Meatballs were very good. Lobster bisque was very good. Ordered two steaks (Filet and NY strip). One medium rare, other one medium. They came out the complete opposite. NY Strip was just ok. Not worth the money. I expected more out of a high priced meal. Would not go back unless it was just for appetizers.

My partner ordered a ribeye and I ordered short ribs. His portion was huge so that he could not finish it. Mine was just the right amount.

Excellent food , great service ! I’ve been going there ever since they opened the place ..
The Hostess could use a dose of confidence from Zach who waited on us . He was great and seemed to really enjoy his job! Will Definitely recommend to everyone.

Black & Blue is my favorite restaurant! The service, food, and drinks never cease to amaze me. I only wish that they had a couples menu or meal that included two sides.

Business lunch and was given a private space with our party of 8. Great service and even though it was noisy in the restaurant they had a great way to make the room more private and close off the sound. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a business friendly venue.

We love Black & Blue and eat there frequently. The oysters are great, New York strip is always tasty and cooked perfectly. Love the sides. Our server the other night was Zack and he was great! My only complaint about Black & Blue is the bread! First of all I am over pretzel bread and the other rolls were hard as a rock inside and out, warm right out of the oven, but hard as a rock. This has been an issue the last few times we've eat there, but I haven't felt the need to complain about it. Just serve fresh bread, please!

I’ve called and left messages to and sent a Facebook message talk to them about my meal. We were having dinner with our son and his new girlfriend. It was not a comfortable situation to tell the waiter that my $70 lobster was horrible. I brought it home so I could take it back to them after the fact so they could see it. But no one is getting back to me. Very disappointed.
