It took 3 hours for dinner. They said it was because of 3 large parties but food was getting out fast to the tables with 2-3 people. Been before but not coming back.

The steak was excellent and the vegetables and wine also very good, but we did not like having to walk through the casino area with smoking and noise and lights. There should be a separate entry for the steak house. Also, while the atmosphere was pleasant, it was not the very special ambiance that some reviewers have suggested.

This restaurant never fails to impress! My husband ordered the pork chop and it was amazing so flavorful and the polenta yum!
The service was exceptional overall. Oh worth mentioning ask about the soufflé! It’s not on the menu and must be ordered at the start of your meal Omg it’s wonderful and it has been different flavor every time we go!

Our waitress was great , service was professional, really liked our time. ALTHOUGH.... the male bartender really was unprofessional, did not acknowledge us for15 minutes at the front bar to the restaurant, served others as they sat down when we had arrived first. We were with a San Pasqual elder, Frank Orosco. He and us were very disappointed with his bartender service. As we left, others asked what had happened, he ,the bartender, (very loudly) stated to all that bar, “I dont know what happened he(Frankie) said he wasn’t being served. He accused me(bartender) of not serving him.” Very very unprofessional and improper etiquette for a eloquent establishment.

We always enjoy our meals and the service when we come to Black and Blue. We also celebrated my folks 61st wedding anniversary, back in October, with a party of 9 and were put in the private party room. Luis the restaurant manager and the staff were very helpful in getting things set up. The food was great, the service was wonderful, and my folks got a real kick out of the personalized menu set for their special occasion.

Even though we had just eaten at Black and Blue Friday night we decided to come back Sunday and it was fantastic, again, as usual. No wonder why they are the #1 restaurant in San Diego County. The pasta special with vegetables, shrimp and scallops in a creamy tomato sauce was excellent and the peanut butter, white chocolate dessert souffle was the best ever.

Our only complaint is that Black and Blue is only open Thursday-Sunday and we often eat our on Monday nights!!

Best filet in years....and it was on the $40 menu. Cooked to perfection with fantastic flavor in every bite. Hadn't ordered the filet in quite awhile as Black & Blue has been having so many pasta with seafood specials of late, but was craving a little beef and B & B delivered, big time!

We liked the menu options above the Harrah's steak house (chicken, and seafood options). We did not like having to pay for extras on the side. An entree is an entree, meaning you should have a vegetable and starch on the plate. for example paying $34 for Seabass should include 2 sides with the bread. You are overpriced.

Did not like the tip included. My husband is a BIG tipper, so he added onto your charge of $29.

Not sure if we will go here again. Due to the smoke in the casino. Did not like the perfume like smell in the entry way. I am asthmatic and my friend has COPD.

The server did not do much. We were impressed with the lady that served the appetizers and bread before the meal. A young mam delivered our food, even before we took the 1st bite the server asked how everything was?

My seabass was good but did not like the creamy rich sauce. No description of how the seabass was served, my fault I should've asked, I don't like fancy sauces. I spent the next day recovering from a stomach ache.

Overall, I would recommend Black & blue but would warn people about the menu, tip included and over priced entrees.

They have the best value $40.00 meal that you can pick from (salad or soup, main and dessert) but this time we went for the Surf and Turf which was phenomenal! My husband and I split the meal, I had a HUGE lobster tail, with a scallop, shrimp and a large leg of crab. We shared the wedge salad which is so amazing, and didn't have room for dessert, but the coffee service, is amazing. fresh pressed coffee with all these condiments! sugar sticks, caramel, fresh cream and just amazing. Oh, and their breads before the meal? OMG. Highly recommend this to everyone at Valley View and it's worth just the drive up to eat.

Everything was great. We started with a calamari appetizer that turned out to be a mix of calamari and shrimp, excellent! Then we tried the special surf and turf combo. What a fantastic dish, all of the seafood (scallop, shrimp, king crab, and lobster tail) was cooked to perfection and the steak was perfectly done at a medium-rare as ordered.

If you enjoy steak and seafood this is the best place to go.
