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.
How do I rate this. Hubby bday dinner was interrupted by a high speed chase that ended up at the door of the casino where in turn the EPD shot and killed the driver with the gun. We were rushed outside via the kitchen for our safety. We returned 20 min later cold from the night and found out we were in lock down for 2hrs due to the crime scene. We finished our dinner but was never offered water,coffee or a stiff drink after what we got to experience. My food was cold, I had to order my own second glass of wine and hubs bday was never acknowledged. The waiter placed the bill on the table and told us no rush since we can’t leave. 200.00 later all I got from the night was my points from open table and a crazy story to tell. Those who were almost done with dinner never came back to pay, leaving while they could I’m sure. Ahhh good times.. happy birthday babe...
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.
Service was amazing. They catered to us exceptionally well. The steak was one of the best I have ever had.
The food at Black and Blue is absolutely amazing. It doesn't matter what you order, it is all so delicious. The staff is top notch. If you're a true foodie, this is the place for you.
Considering this is a casino, The service was great the food was great it was a wonderful evening. We would recommend this to anyone
Never disappoints, I have dined here multiple times it is all ways a wonderful experience
We enjoy going to this restaurant. The service is always great! Our steaks are always cooked perfectly. Love the Ice tea and ask for the carrot cake!!! 😍
We have been coming to Black and Blue for years, service is always good and food is exceptional. The specials are always wonderful so usually try different things every time we go and I am never disappointed.
Great place to go for a sensory dining experience. From the scented hand towels that you receive upon arriving to the chef's sample of desserts given right before you leave, Black and Blue is one of the nicer restaurants in the area. Their menu is fresh and varied with unusual pairings. The wine and bar menu is complete. Check out their daily specials before you make your dinner choice. Enjoy their complementary appetizers and be sure to try their iced tea served with tea cubes, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup. The coffee served after dinner is a dessert in itself, with fresh whipped cream, caramel, sugar sticks, chocolate and dipped scones. Take your time and enjoy all they have to offer, you'll be glad you did.
We have dined here several times and each time the service is exceptional, the meals are prepared just right. I highly advise Black and Blue Steakhouse for any occasion.
We have been dining at Black & Blue now for about 8 years, and every visit is just marvelous. Our regular server Ellie is wonderful, and she always takes great care of my wife and me. Luis the Manager is always very gracious and welcoming to us also. The food is exceptional and unique, and we always have a memorable dining experience. This past Sat (2/3/18) I had the Surf & Turf, and played Dining for Dollars, and my meal was FREE. OUTSTANDING!!!
Black and Blue is an outstanding restaurant. The steaks were perfect. Wine was priced very moderately; which is a wonderful surprise at a restaurant of this quality. They know how to add the extra touches......warm towels, small bites while you peruse the menu, small desserts and a coffee presentation that is out of this world. After a wonderful meal they serve the coffee with sugar sticks, chocolate spoons and biscotti. The coffee is the best I have ever had........ANYWHERE!!! The service was outstanding. I can’t wait to go back!!
This is the best steakhouse in San Diego!!! Everything on the menu is REALLY good.
Love our monthly dinner at Black and Blue! This was also our 43rd wedding anniversary dinner.
I had their signature Surf & Turf with lobster, jumbo shrimp, Alaskan king crab, scallops, and fillet. Started evening with Kumamoto oysters. My wife had their $45.00 dinner with local salad, fillet, and creme brulee after her Alaskan king crab appetizer. We gambled on my signature dish and ended up with $50 discount off of regular $85 price. Eli and rest of the staff always treat us with genuine great services!!!
Wonderful Birthday Dining !
We started with the Lobster Appetizer it was delish. Our Entree was shared, it was the
Cowboy Ribeye with Baked potato..With sharing, we went home with half of the Ribeye
and Baked potato ! My Martini was perfect...
The service was amazing !! Our waiter was attentive, not hovering and gave great recommendations!
Always a fun experience and the food is always above excellent. Our server Ellie is one of the best anywhere. She will give you the best service possible. If you have not tried the Lobster Avocado Tower you are really missing something. Love this resturant.
