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.

    This is a really comfortable, centrally located restaurant with nice ambience and decor. We had the bread board which was excellent and good value, followed by the ribs. The ribs were a little dry owing to being cooked too long but they have a good quantity to them and valued well. The drink range for beers is a little small with most options only 330ml which could be improved for the beer drinker (I had cider as a result). There is one blonde female welcomer who is probably the prettiest manager I've seen and very friendly. All the staff were excellent and very attentive.

    The fillet steak was cooked as requested and tender so all good. The side salad was uninspiring and needed more and better dressing. Fries were good. The Albariño white wine was average and the red Bordeaux Superior was also average. Service was good but varied depending on who was walking past your table. Personally I think the American approach to having one server per table is more effective and it would also be nice to have water brought to the table without having to ask.

    First time I have been there for a business lunch. The market was buzzing but the restaurant was quiet (so less ambiance than usual). As it was a business lunch, we tried to get a table away from a large family with young kids. The waiter/maitre d' said that the booths were only for parties of 4 so would not move us (despite the booths being empty throughout the lunch period). The food here is always excellent (this time we had simple Steak & frites with a starter; set menu). Service was polite but not warm/welcoming - and my guest was not happy that the maitre d' had not provided us with a better table especially as the venue was nearly empty. Think he won't recommend but I do as food was good and typically good experience.

    Very easy to book a table online. Nice ambiente. The food was served quite fast, the portions where quite large and tasted really good. All in all a nice experience. Unfortunately there was a group of 7 at the table next to ours and 5 of them were female, so it was quite loud. I'll never say agaian that only Italians are loud...🤣

    Everything was lovely, staff were great and food was beautiful. This was my first time here and had a great experience. We had a table of 6 and 4 were delayed due to flight delays but restaurant was so accommodating and it was not a problem to wait. The steaks were very tasty and cooked perfectly. Definitely would go back again.

    We visited on a quiet Sunday lunch time session but it soon filled up. We chose the fixed price menu 3 courses for £24 which was great value for money especially as the steak was very tasty. Staff lovely and chatty and attentive but not pushy. All in all an excellent choice.

    I love this restaurant. Excellent food. I particularly love the chocolate fondant dessert. Melt in the mouth. It must never be removed from the menu! It is perfect! Not too sweet, and melts in the middle. Perfection. This dessert is the one reason I regularly come to this restaurant.
