I have frequented Black & Blue many times and have always left there very happy. I was not pleased with this experience. My food was not that great although the server tried to make everything as pleasant as possible. Hopefully things were different because it was a very busy day. However, when we came it was not that busy. I would recommend the restaurant based on past experiences and not the present one.

My family and I came here to celebrate my mom for Mother’s Day, and it was wonderful. Service was outstanding, regardless of being busy due to the holiday. As well as the food, incredible. The calamari is the best thing on the menu!!! Spicy and sweet!! We even ate the crumbs! 10/10.

We had a wonderful meal this evening at Black and Blue. Our server Adam was very accommodating and the staff was very attentive. It was great to find a place that had delicious food and good service. The chop salad had a good presentation as did the peanut butter dessert.

Very nice & service was awesome.
It was very quiet but could tell as time went on and got busier it got louder. It looked like both banquet rooms were occupied so I think that was where noise was coming from.
Only thing I would do differently is I would ask for a booth.

Excellent steakhouse in Buffalo suburb. Great service, great steak - perfectly cooked. Seafood good, but a notch down from the steaks. Expensive, but worth it.

Service and food was perfect. Our server Olivia was phenomenal and so was her busboy. Just a little tacking when 2 full garbage cans were dragged in front of us while eating and front door had salt splattered all over it. Little things like that will turn a 4 star restaurant into a 3 star fast

The medium rare steak we purchased became a well done steak after sizzling on the skillet they served it on to eat.

I took my fiancé here for her birthday dinner. I was a touch expensive but the food was amazing and the birthday desert was phenomenal. The host staff was friendly and we were grerted promptly . After being seated we asked to be moved to a booth and our request was granted rather quickly given the circumstances. All in all it was a great experience and i would recommend it to friends

I get that they lost money during the pandemic but their prices have gone way up. No sides are included anymore. Variety has also been reduced. The food was very good but couldnt get what I used to get and paid a lot more than in the past

It looks like they have new chefs, which was disappointing. The bread was wonderful, but our other food didn't taste as it had over the past 12 years we've dined there. The gorgonzola cream sauce was very strange. Also I had the chocolate peanut butter dessert, and it didn't taste as it always has. If we were first timers, we probably would have enjoyed our food, but we were really hoping to taste our favorite items.

When we sat down at our the level of noice was horrific. We were unable to carry on a conversation without raising our voices. Something is needed to absorb the sound. The service, drinks and food were exemplary. We’re looking forward to returning again.

B&B is always good. They are consistent. I think one of the best steaks in Buffalo. I wish they would stop getting rid of items like the “roasty” and more of a dessert selection but we will be back!
