Food was pretty good. Brussel sprouts and scolloped potatoes were completely undercooked. Steak was delish but the red wine Demi glaze was just ok. Very nice birthday dessert, much better than anticipated. I would go again!

Service was prompt. House bread was excellent!Appetizer of Calamari was extremely tough and sent back! Crab and lobster dip was very good as was crostini’s. Main courses were excellent. I had filet with Gorgonzola cream and wife had snapper! Dessert was an excellent key lime pie with phenomenal crust! Overall 3.5-4 Stars, as appetizers and dinner sides were warm as if they sat for a few minutes in kitchen too long!

Food was great and our server Chris was very attentive without being overly so and had a great sense of humor. Personable.
Great experience. Staff was masked up with gloves and washed everything down after each seating.
Very comfortable in this time of the coronavirus.
Great place to dine without being rushed.

I’ve been here a few times and usually they’re right on the money. Food is almost always perfect. However, this last time we brought a friend to share the experience with them and it really was not great. Steak was hard to chew, Mac and cheese lacked flavor, and the fries were soggy. Makes me scared to come here again and waste my money especially since it’s so pricey.

High Quality food with a little more relaxed feel. With other high end restaurants, I felt bombarded by the server. Black and Blue gives you your space, but at the same time you know your being waited on, if that makes sense.... I take my wife to Black and Blue any chance I can. She loves the food and atmosphere. When a big date comes up, my first choice is always Black and Blue!!

The meal was very good overall. However, the 20 oz porterhouse steak was a little tough, but not enough to send back. The lump crab meat had a few shell pieces in it. Staff was very good and I would go back again.

Very disappointing time - were there to celebrate my husbands birthday - almost walked out halfway through the meal. Have been there numerous times with no issues. Were there for over 2 hours for just 2 of us for dinner. Ordered crab cake as an appetizer - were told it would take at least 15-20 minutes - really, for a crab cake at a restaurant that specializes in seafood?? Got my wine order wrong. The best/worst was got my husbands steak order completely wrong twice - he ordered a Kansas City ribeye - brought him a filet which he told them was wrong then 25-30 minutes later they bring out the replacement steak - a Kansas City strip not ribeye. Sides were huge portions so I think we were overcharged for that when we didn’t order large sides. They comped his steak and gave us a gift card. Honestly though just do a good job originally and u don’t have to go thru comping things. Restaurant was at much lower capacity than a regular Saturday night - scary to think how much worse if at full capacity. Very frustrating night out - people don’t get many of those nights out now so super disappointing to have one ruined by bad service.

The Black and Blue Staff did a great job here. You were met at the by a hostess who opened the doors to let you in. then our table was ready when we walked in. The staff was very professional and safe. The food was very good and cooked the way we ordered it.

The steak is always consistently cooked to perfection, seasoned perfectly and so soft you can cut it with your fork. Service is top notch, classy.

It was my 36th birthday dinner. The service was amazing once inside. We had a small wait even with a reservation. The manager brought out a free appetizer and it was delicious. Our waitress was attentive and kind. Overall, I give 5 stars.

We went to celebrate 2 anniversaries and 2 birthdays. The hostesses were very friendly. We were 5 people and they only put 1 basket of bread and 1 ramekin of butter. Some people ordered appetizers but i ordered soup. Everyone was eating their apps and I had to ask for my soup which was served lukewarm and without a spoon. We finally got to order halfway through the apps! I ordered a plain steak without anything on it and it was served with the steak rub on it, I had to send it back and wait for a new one. Then one of the dinners had a hair in it which my sister-in-law had to pull out of her mouth! 🤮. The other dinners were ok, very salty. nothing special. My dessert was good, I had the creme brûlée. They served a small glass of champagne for out celebrations which was awful. Then finished with a chocolate truffle which was great. Needless to say we probably won’t be going back. Very expensive for just an ok meal and that’s being generous.
