Had my birthday meal there. Food was out of this world! Highly recommended getting the seafood tower. They also give you a special birthday dessert too!
Food and Service was outstanding. Extra safety precautions in place made us worry free in dining there. Everything was fresh, perfectly prepared and delivered to our table timely.
Would definitely return!! The steak was outstanding!!
It was my birthday so I treated the kids out to steak and seafood dinner. We enjoyed the food and the servers were attentive. Great experience.
It was good
Freaking place is AWESOME! The food, scenery, and service was second to known. Perfect for a proposal night. Thank you so much!
Everything was fine except we were shocked that they never asked a particular table to take their crying screaming baby outside. Even the parents sat there and let it scream. For the price of the food and the ambiance you’d think a screaming child would not be in attendance. So it put a bad taste in my mouth when management didn’t step in. And we weren’t the only diners upset. Not a good way to pick up a returning customer. Shame on you. So sorry
Our waitress Alex was amazing and good was just as great! One of the best steakhouses I've been to and I been too a lot living in nyc.
The wait staff quickly sets the tone making you feel as you are the only one in the restaurant. The Lobster and Crab dip... incredible. The Chilean Sea Bass and Prime Rib, both perfectly prepared. It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end!!
My Kansas City strip steak was not cooked to what I requested. But more important than that the steak was tough. It was not easy to cut and was very chewy. I was disappointed as I have eaten there before and the food was terrific.
We had a wonderful meal! The She Crab soup was delicious and the chop salad could have fed a family of four!! The rack of lamb was the best I ever tasted and the prime rib was alderman delicious! Can’t wait to return!!
Food was great and our server and her assistants were all excellent. Love the pretzel bread!!!
Enjoyed Easter dinner - regular menu so you weren't limited by only a special menu
Bad oyster, dried out red snapper. Too long between check ins by staff. NO compensation (not even a complimentary drink). Cappuccino machine broken. No interest in returning.
Incredible food and service! We went for an anniversary dinner and Lisa and Henry were wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a special occasion date night.
The appetizers and cocktails were fabulous! The 10 ounce filet mignon was cooked to perfection! Easily one of the best pieces of meat I have ever eaten!!!
First time here. We had reservations at 5:00, we were seated right away. Both of our waiters were very nice, yes we had 2 waiters even though we were a party of 3! Both of them were trained for the upscale restaurant that it is. Our salads were incredible! The Filet Mignon was excellent and done to perfection. All portions were very generous. The desserts were out of this world and again portions were generous. You get what you pay for. We will definitely come back.
Every single thing we ordered was amazing. The ambiance can not be beat.
Service was outstanding. Food was very good. The noise was terrible. My husband and I wear hearing aids. It was totally impossible to hear the server or the couple we were with.
We had an amazing dinner for my husbands birthday. The food and drink were excellent! The wait staff (Lisa and her helper whose name began with a C) where fantastic and a attentive. They knew the menu and explained everything in great detail. The food was tasty and I recommend the seafood tower! It was a great evening!
Steaks were perfectly cooked. The scallops were perfectly seasoned. The staff was very attentive and top of everything. It’s always really consistent here! Pretty pricey so bring your BIG wallet
Great attention to detail from host stand to table! Food is impeccable. Team service is very attentive and not over bearing.
Could not have been better!!!! Food is was delicious . Service was beyond words. Wouldn’t change a thing. Can’t wait to go back again soon. Favorite restaurant in the 518!
We have been to Black & Blue Steak and Crab several times and have not been disappointed on any of our visits. The staff is awesome, the Covid restrictions were firmly in place (made us very comfortable), and the food (as always) is superb. There was only one flaw that we noticed - the scallops were a bit salty to the taste, which overrode the taste of the scallop itself. I spoke with another party that had been there a couple nights before - said the same. May be something to pass on to the chef. Otherwise, fabulous! Will definitely dine there again and again.
Everything was absolutely delicious. Waiters were excellent. We have been here before food is great.
Black & Blue is one of our favorite "special" eateries in the Capital Region. The food is always top notch and the staff works hard at making each experience perfect. Or son is a professional chef and he raved when we took him to Black & Blue. He said the porterhouse steak was the best steak he'd ever had that had been cooked by someone else.
Dinner was great from the appetizers though the main course,. Oysters, Ahi were perfect. Great KC strip. Service was excellent and well coordinated.
I had not visited B&B in over a year. They have improved the experience significantly. I will be going back soon!
ALWAYS AN EXCELLENT CULINARY EXPERIENCE. SERVICE WAS AND ALWAYS IS EXCELLENT.
Excellent meal and service. Will definitely recommend to friends and return again.
Server was fabulous, food was excellent as always!
We were celebrating an anniversary with a special dinner. Our waitress, Lisa, started our meal with two glasses of champagne. We split the chopped salad for an appetizer, which was a good idea because it was a large portion easily split between the two of us. Lisa was very knowledgeable about the different cuts of meat offered and assisted in us both choosing 6 oz. filet mignon. The meat was cooked to perfection and was delicious. We ordered the mash potatoes and Mac and cheese for sides. Save room for dessert! The creme brûlée and gelato were the perfect ending to a fantastic meal.
There were barriers between each table and lemon with hot clothes were provided to clean our hands between courses. The music was eclectic which complemented the ambiance nicely.
For a special occasion or just a special night meal out, I highly recommend this restaurant. From the quality of the food, the cleanliness, and the staff this was a 5 star evening out.
Wonderful food and service! Abby was a great server. We’ll definitely be back again.
Birthday Dinner-great service, amazing food & beautiful atmosphere! Ty!
steaks were good, however slightly overcooked, as we ordered rare, and were served more like a medium rare
fries are good, but salads are disappointing, especially for the price point
caesar salad had exactly 5 small croutons, a few parmesan shavings and very little dressing, same with the chopped salad, I do not like salads with too much dressing, but this was for sure very little
Great experience all around.
Food was great. Small problem, but corrected immediately
Look forward to returning
Great food & service! Went for our anniversary and they made it special.
The best suit and tie that walks in for dinner and I’m sat by the kitchen; hire pretty girls with brains!
Overall positive about the restaurant. Servers were good, from the hostess being on top of things to prompt seating to the two guys that took care of the table. Appetizers were excellent: in particular, the crab and lobster fondue is well worth a try! My daughter had a filet mignon while I had the Red Snapper and both were good. Negatives: the tonic water that they use is very lightly carbonated which can make their drinks disappointing. And then overall value . . . . while you don't eat here to save a few pennies, I'm not convinced about the "value" they offer. I think we ended up around $90 per person with two drinks for my daughter and one for me (driving)
We dined on Sunday night, after a funeral and celebrating our kids birthdays. The wait staff couldn’t have been better. They were sympathetic for our loss, yet allowed us to also celebrate the birthdays.
