Thanks for another great dining experience.
I go to Black and Blue once a month. Love the food and Ellie our normal waitress is so great. Missed her this visit.
Thank you Jessica for the awesome service once again
Dinner was equally amazing
As always Black And Blue delivers. Jessica is especially attentive and she makes sure that your every need is met.
Wonderful diner once again and our server was Jessica and she was great
Exceptional as always. We did miss having Eli as server, but will excuse her since she was having her wedding rehearsal dinner (at B & B, of course). Tim and Mel were took great care of us and great to see Travis transitioning over to B & B where he belongs! Chef Michael created another fantastic pasta special with large shrimps and vegetables in a very flavorful pesto sauce. I was going to have the steak and lobster but the pasta sounded too good to pass up...and it was! The potato leek soup was very good and of course the filet mignon wraps continue to be the best starter...ever. Luis, thanks again for keeping B & B running so well.
The steak was perfect, but I did not care for the tomato salad. Too spicy for me. Our waiter was excellent.
The steaks are excellent. Our server Jessica was very attentive and pleasant. Highly recommend.
this is my favorite place to eat and enjoy friends and family. the service is always great. the food is always delicious!
I have been to the Black and Blue Steakhouse a couple of times. I keep coming back because the food is great, the service Is great, nice atmosphere and warm feeling in the restaurant. I have to say the Surf and Turf dish was the best for me, the lobster, crab cake, filet , there were a lot of items on the plate, so much that I had to take some home. I have to say it is always an enjoyable time when we go to the Black and Blue.
I love everything about my experience at B&B. Everything from the Service to the high quality of food was exceptional.
Thank you to Chef Michael, Tim, Eli you are all AMAZING!
Great martinis good prime beef, nice touches to food and service, best steak house in southern Ca.
Black and Blue is our favorite steak house in San Diego. The steaks are cooked perfectly, the bread is absolutely amazing, the appetizers are perfect, and the servers are attentive, friendly, and efficient. Just a great experience.
Good food and drinks great service nice ambiance would recommend definitely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The service couldn't have been nicer. Great staff. Great food. We would come here more often if we didn't have to walk through the casino nicotine cloud to get here. Then again, if you dine at a casino, what else would you expect?
We have been to black and blue many times and have never been disappointed. It is our favorite place to go for special occasions. It is a bit pricey or we would go more often. The food and service is top notch.
Love this place! Always great food!! Three course dinner menu is a great value!
Pricey, but worth every dime. Every item on the menu is exquisite. It never disappoints.
Many Thanks to Chef Michael for fulfilling my special request for Peanut Butter Souffle for dessert. IT WAS AMAZING!
Also, Special Thanks to Tim our server. He is the BEST.
As always excellent food and service.
We LOVE Black and Blue which is located inside the Valley View Casino. The food is delicious, the service is exceptional and the ambiance is ideal. We especially like their 3 course meal! Definitely going back again and again!
Very basic menu. Their bread is AMAZING. The rest of the menu is very standard. There is a lot of room for improvement of the decor of the place. The walls look very busy with paintings but the bar/wood fire oven area looks dead. For being a casino it's passable but the price of the food and quality, it's not worth it. I would not think of this place as a good dinner place if I was in the area. Will probably not come back.
A must return for any that have dined at Black and Blue in the past as they have brought back the steak wrap appetizers with the peanut sauce....best appetizer ever, anywhere! Still don't understand why it has been off the menu for 3+ years, crazy! Also many other new items, especially in the appetizer and side dish sections. Split pea soup was as good or better than mom's, but don't tell her! Lobster pot pie was a little disappointing as it definitely lacked lobster for its' $20 price tag as a gourmet side, taste was good, but not great. Maki roll topped with yellowtail and jalapeno was excellent. We always have Eli and Mel as our servers, both are friendly, professional and as good as you will find at any high end restaurant. The manager Luis has such a good staff that he is often too busy helping at other restaurants in the casino so we don't get to see him as often as we like...a shame as he is a real gentleman and a great manager.
Great time and great food
This restaurant is great! The staff was very attentive and made the experience enjoyable. We did the 3 course meal for $45 and that was great. The food was very flavorful! I recommend Black and Blue Restaurant!
Best restaurant we have ever been to. We like Capital Grille a lot, but this was better.
We love dining at this restaurant. The service is the best. The presentation of the food is always so nice and the food is outstanding. Love all the extras that accompany the tea, coffee and food. Celebrated my brother's 60th birthday and he thoroughly enjoyed his dinner as well as the rest of our party. It's always a special treat to dine at this restaurant while at Valley View.
It was at least my 15th time at black and blue steakhouse. This was a fantastic time for a special occasion and sharing the gourmet upscale food offerings with my friends & family. No doubt I will be back!
The food was wonderful, the atmosphere quiet and classy and the service was great! The manager and the waitresses were so helpful, courteous and knowledgeable ... I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special date or occasion - or just a great dinner. We found a wine we really liked on the menu and enjoyed it with family.
Complimentary apps nice touch.
Bread was nice.
However Slow service ( over 1 hour to have 7 oz filet with no apps)
Steaks were over charred. Not up to “best steakhouse” slogan.
My guy was quite impressed. His lobster & Dungeness crab was "maybe the best thing I've ever eaten." My favorite part was the Hawaiian black rock salt butter. Too tasty! It was a busy night & the service was just a bit below 5 stars.
My fifth time here and brought out of town guest. Food was delicious as always. Service was horrendous and the restaurant was not crowded. It ruined the entire experience.
The servers were very nice and professional. We did ask for lemon which we never got. Honestly I will rate the food a 4/10. We did not like the salads with those giant fried cheese balls considering the salad is called a field greens salad and seemed to be premade hours earlier. The nut, olive and cheese appetizer was tasteless.
The Salmon was good. The dessert was the Cheesecake Parfait and it was mainly whipping cream, would have better if it were a piece of cheesecake. The entire meal per person was 45$, very expensive for the mediocre food.
We love this place! Totally worth the drive! The food and service are among the best in San Diego!!!
Great dining experience to celebrate our anniversary.
Dined in the cozy wine room which was chilly but they left the sliding door open to make it warmer.
Great service,wine & food.
Ordered their signature surf & turf.
There was a huge lobster tail,crab leg,scallop,shrimp,filet, vegetable, & 2 different kinds of potatoes.
The bread basket & coffee also were very impressive.
We got to play a fun card game to determine the price of our dinners.
They were normally $85 each but we got lucky and got both meals for $35.
The restaurant staff gave us a yummy complimentary dessert for our anniversary.
In addition brought us yummy cookies.
Needless to say we went home with a big doggie bag.
We will be back!
Although this is in a casino, don't let that stop you! It is by far the best restaurant for steak/lobster, etc. I am fussy and it is GREAT, has never disappointed. The manager, Louis and his staff are well trained, friendly, professional, great personalities, etc. I LOVE BLACK AND BLUE, THE FOOD AND STAFF! Give a try!!!
Great food, wonderful plating, presentation was outstanding, wait staff has great PR skills, total experience was among the best in our experience.
Awesome food! Loved the King Crab and steamed spinach. My favorite restaurant
One of our favorite restaurants in San Diego. We always start with a cocktail in the bar and enjoy the aquarium. Very friendly bartender. Service and food is always excellent and a decent price. Can't wait to go back.
