I’ve travelled and eaten all over the world in addition to being a chef for 20 years. You served me the best filet I’ve ever eaten. Very happy and if I come back through I’ll absolutely coming back.

It was our first time to Black and Blue and we enjoyed our meal immensely and the service was wonderful! We were celebrating my Mom's Birthday and mine and we couldn't have booked a better place! The food was Amazing and my filet did have to get returned as it was not done enough but they apologized and and cooked it more and it was returned in a short amount of time and was perfect! Our steaks were all seasoned perfectly and very tender! The sides we choose were very good also! Loved the pretzel bread! They also surprised us with a molten chocolate lava cake and we all shared and was so decadent and so good! Would definitely go back again!

Poor seating
Several items that we ordered, they ran out of by 8:00.
Ordered fish which was a mistake. Ended up getting sick.
Never acknowledged that we were there celebrating a birthday.

Overall food was good. Complaint that the Caesar salad was bland though. I like places that include potato and vegetable with entrée since they are so cheap to buy anyways they should be included. Servers wwee fantastic.

3 good meals and great service. The 4th meal had overly salty fried oysters and very salty ribeye. I do not expect a high quality ribeye to be salty at all. I’d still go back and hope the steak issue was just an aberration.

Decided to treat ourselves for our anniversary and the served and staff were incredible. Everyone wished us a happy anniversary, and the server brought out complimentary champagne after dinner! It is pricey, but the food and service make it worth it. Would recommend for special occasions!

Delicious steaks! Mac and cheese side dish is so good! Too bad king crab legs have priced themselves off the menu. Wish they would bring back the creamed spinach.

Food was excellent. Both server and waiter were very good. Fondu was almost a meal in itself. Steaks tender and cooked just right. Fries a little salty. Birthday dessert excellent. Great experience.

The server was excellent. Every dish had to much seasoning and salt. Mainly sea salt. The food wasn’t worth the money.

My husband and i came here for our 3 year anniversary for the first time. Right when you walk in, it just looks beautiful and classy. Even though we came a couple minutes early for our reservation, they still seated us immediately. The waitress was amazing. She gave us a complimentary toast and drinks for our anniversary. The food was absolutely perfect! Beyond perfect. Most definitely will be coming here again!!! 10/10!!

I realize that most dining establishments are struggling to find help during these times... that said, I would have preferred (and expected) much better service for a $250 (before tip( dining experience for 2. We were sat promptly, drinks came out quickly. Ordered our meals starting with oysters and a salad, followed by filet and dry aged Delmonico. It was 45 minutes before our salad/oysters came out. Meanwhile, the group of 4 next to us who were seated after us had already been served their starters and main course. Finally our steaks and sides came out, by the “assistant”. Our waitress never came around again until we were mostly done with our meals, therefore, no round of drinks to enjoy with our dinner. The food was okay, but the experience was definitely overshadowed by the lack of attention and time spent waiting.
