    Black & Blue has been our 'go to' restaurant for special occasions for several years. Once again they did not disappoint. It was more quiet than usual this time since our reservations were at 6:00 and it was only partially full. The waitstaff were very attentive, but not intrusive. The steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection (one medium rare, one medium). We also ordered two side dishes, both of which were more than enough to share. Anyone seeking a great dining experience should consider this establishment. I know we will be going back!

    We celebrated a birthday at Black & Blue. The cocktails, food and wine were all delicious. Two diners had steak (strip & filet) and 2 had seafood ( black grouper and scallops). We also enjoyed mashed potato, Mexican street corn, Caesar salad and a Wedge salad. The service was outstanding as well. The chocolate torte for the birthday guest was a very nice touch!

    It was our inaugural dining experience at this establishment, and it exceeded our expectations. We savored the salmon and the crab cake accompanied by delectable sweet potato dumplings reminiscent of French toast. The attentive servers promptly catered to our needs and checked on us frequently.

    Great decor and service! I loved the amount of food you get and the flavors. However, I wish they had a greater variety of desserts (especially for people like me that cannot eat chocolate or nuts). I would have loved the trifle without the Oreo cookie crust. 🙁

    Great experience! We went for our anniversary and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Our coats were taken and checked in as soon as we arrived and we were taken right back to our table. The staff all wished us a happy anniversary and were very attentive. The meal was great, as was our dessert, thanks to our waitress’s recommendation! We were very happy and are excited to come back again.

    Appetizers were great. Meal not so much. They didnt have salmon left, went with scallops, which were good, but the lemon risotto was terrible. Filet was ok, not up to par with others. Truffle butter on the side served frozen, not melted. Mac and cheese - a joke, its ricearoni.

    Always a goto place for a great meal. Service is fantastic, the steaks are aged and cooked. Perfectly, besides are delicious. The wine list is very good, not overpriced. The atmosphere is excellent. We have never had a bad meal there. The tuna, tartare appetizer is absolutely fantastic, a definite go to every time we eat there. They are also allergy and vegan friendly, which is a huge plus.

    server seemed like she didn't want to be bothered with anything, ceaser salad dressing was awful, ordered scallops with risotto, scallops were good but risotto was probably the worst I ever had. all I tasted was lemon and very heavy handed with the pepper, I couldn't even eat it, extremely disappointed.

    My fillet did not have as much flavor as it normally does. Our orzo mac & cheese came out, barely warm. I did tell the waitress and they brought us out a new one that was piping hot. However, it did lack seasoning we had to add our own salt and pepper.

    We were disappointed to find out that they were sold out of lobster tails!!! For a steak and seafood restaurant I find this to be unacceptable. Also there were 6 of us and we all got steak and only 2 of the steaks were cooked to temp that was requested. We have never had a bad meal at this restaurant but this one was not to its regular standards

    5 Stars in food, amazing service.. However we noted this to be a 40th birthday and were seated at a table facing the kitchen.. perhaps these less desirable tables should be held for walk ins, instead of guests who made a reservation 3 weeks out. So it was noisy and a lot of staff hovering around us as next to the kitchen service doors is the wait staff station. The price is crazy high... it was a nice experience but won't go back unless I win the lottery lol..
