Food was outstanding. We had the filet, lobster tails, sweet potato dumpling and asparagus. Cannot wait to try the other sides on our next visit. Service was amazing. Free champagne for our anniversary which was very nice! Everyone was very attentive. Can’t wait to go back!

Quality of the food was excellent, but portion sizes were disappointing. The chopped salad was smaller than usual and the scallops meal has only four scallops.

We went out for a special night. The people were amazing. We got cowboy ribeyes I really expected a presentation. It was cooked perfect for me but the seasoning was very heavy. Cauliflower au gratin had great flavor but the cauliflower was way to mushy. The asparagus was huge, I mean small sapling huge, and somewhat woody. The wedge salad was great and the creme brulee was amazing. We want to go back and try it again.

Excellent process from reservations to meal.
They even brought out a surprise slice of cake for our daughter’s 16th birthday.
Great experience.

My wife and I had an amazing time at Black and Blue. Honestly, you cant go wrong here for date night. We got pork belly, a wedge salad and filets. Highly recommended.

It has been several years since we were here. Everything was delicious. We were surprised with a piece of cake with a candle for our triple birthday celebration.
Our server, Shelly, was wonderful and patient as there were so many choices.
Can’t wait to go again.

Service and Menu selection are quite good. Lighting quite dim, so anyone with issues reading in low light take note. Quiet atmosphere overall.

Foods is quite good, but our steaks (one filet mignon and one bone-in ribeye) were overly salty. Note that you can ask for a lightly salted/seasoned entree. We did not and will do so in the future. Sweet potato side dish is outstanding, as was the asparagus. Plenty enough for sharing sides.

B&B Manhattan is an excellent drink and they have a nice wine selection. For dessert we had the vanilla bean crème brûlée which was fantastic.

Overall a good experience.

The food was incredible. We always have had excellent quality food when we have dined here. Unfortunately, our server was rather rude when we wanted to use a gift card. She all but refused and then asked us to not put gratuity on it, which was incredibly rude in my opinion since we spent over $400.

Seating arrangements were kept at a distance for per covid protocol.
All servers wore face coverings, as did people entering and exiting the restaurant.
Service was outstanding, everyone was very polite, pleasant and accommodating.
Servings were prompt yet we didn't feel rushed. All dishes were correct temperature. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

2nd time in 2 weeks there. Loved the meal the first time….literally perfect. This time on the 8th. The fish special was Horrible flavor, greens were so spicy and the fish was ill-flavored……I have never sent something back ever. Had to send this back. Replaced with a tasteless crab cake. Sides, fries were completely cold, aioli was bitter. My filet was ok. Pasta was phenomenal.

We were visiting from Ga, to celebrate my husband's birthday. Made reservations in October for December. The hostess very friendly, she wished my husband a happy birthday when we arrived and they also provided him with a surprise birthday desert. Very nice upscale dining experience. The entire staff was great!

The service and the meal itself where excellent. The decor and matrial amb iance where very good. However the ambient noise level made cross table conversation very difficult causing me to cosentrate very hard on my companions words. Unfortunatly because of this I am unable to recommend your resturant . Also, at the table behind me there was a gent enjoying his meal while wearing a baseball cap on backwards. No upscale restaurant should allow this to happen.

Very delicious food, many good options. Starter Menu a bit too “seafood heavy”- could use a vegetarian option along with another non-seafood. Pretzel Rolls are AMAZING!

We've wanted to visit B&B for a while and finally we have. The ambiance was quite unique. Even with patrons seated on either side the noise level was low. Our service was VG from the moment we were seated and the staff were pleasant and efficient. We were very pleased with our food and drink choices. B&B is surly on our "do again list".
