Steak

We’ve been making our own burgers using a unique recipe for more than 30 years…

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.

    Main course was very poor. I had the salmon and it was very over cooked. The French beans were soggy and it was really unappetising. I was disappointed as I have never had a bad meal at Black and Blue before. So hope it is a one off

    My fiancé and I booked a lunchtime table and ordered a hamburger and fries each. It was delicious. My partner doesn't like tomato, so they gave him extra pickle which he was very pleased with! We then decided to have the blood orange sorbet for desert which was so refreshing and tasted amazing. The staff were wonderfully attentive and very friendly and our food was served quickly. We were so impressed, we're definitely going to come back again soon. I know where to take my partner for his birthday now!..

    Black and Blue was recommended to me by a friend. Took my mother there for a birthday treat. Restaurant wasn’t that busy and the music was cool. The food was lovely and the staff were really sweet. The pricing was reasonable. Had a fab time. Thank you

    The waterloo branch looks tired with worn seats etc but in a good and airy location ( if you don’t mind the odd rumble of trains ) Straight away the staff are attentive and friendly answering questions and fixed some issues with our food quickly and without fuss. The only downside was the quality of the food and price but otherwise nice meal I would come again

    Staying overnight with work in London so in need of a nice evening meal in a location suitable for solo diners. Very busy but I had booked in advance through OpenTable so no issues. Nice two person table by the window. The waiter picked up on the fact I was happy to be served my food ASAP and it arrived quickly and very hot. Had the steak frite, I asked for the steak medium rare and it was a proper medium rare so be aware of that when ordering. All in all a very tasty and quick dinner and I would like to return with others to sample the wider menu.

    Lovely place , nicely sited , service was outstanding, so attentive but not intrusive staff were well trained in only come over when requested. Table was nice by the window but seemed a bit close to the next table but I understand the need to get as many people in as possible. Food was lovely and quickly served no waiting at all. Been here twice now and would definitely return .

    1st time dining here, and brought my daughter here for her 10th birthday. Food was amazing, best food we have had in a long time! Service was outstanding (special mention to Patrick) who looked after us, friendly, and went above and beyond bringing out a suprise dessert singing happy birthday to our daughter! Cannot wait to visit again!
