B&B is one of our favorite steakhouses in the Boston area. Our meal was perfect. My wife had the pork belly appetizer and I had the she-crab soup. We followed with the bone-in strip steak with onion rings, mac and cheese and mushrooms for our sides. To complete the meal, we had the key lime pie. Everything was superlative. Our server, Jack, is most personable, efficient and professional. He enhances our time at B&B. We look forward to returning soon.

The service was exceptional. The food was very good - we went for entrees on the Prix fixe Restaurant Week menu. Salads, entrees and desserts were delish. The surprise came when we got our bill - we each had two glasses of wine, and that doubled our bill!! $20 per glass for my friend's chardonnay, $16 or $18 for each glass of my Pinot Grigio. Clearly this place is an "expense account" restaurant. Still glad we got to try it, but beware of the prices for alcohol!

We LOVE Black and Blue! We don’t usually have room for dessert but skipped an appetizer so we could finally try it and it was the best decision! The molten chocolate bomb cake was amazing! Definitely plenty for 2 and I’m not usually one to share lol. Each time we go to b&b it’s better than the last. They have the best staff too - friendliest hostesses anywhere and the service is awesome and always so knowledgeable!

Everything was awesome. Our only complaint, if it's even that, the table next to us was too close. That's it. Andre was a fantastic server, the food was exceptional, and the overall dining experience top notch.

One has to wonder, at least on this occasion, if the chef is a former or current smoker. The ambiance was nice, the service a little pushy (considering how often they asked us if we were ready to have the table cleared before we finished eating), and the food was way over-spiced (and a little overpriced). We ordered two dishes, salmon and lamb chops, both of which can stand on their own taste-wise, and both dishes were smothered in a pepper coating to the point that my somewhat wintery-chapped lips really burned. Some minor corrections and it could have been okay.

The tuna Niçoise salad and crab salad were great. Our waiter was also was also wonderful- although when ready to pay we waited for seating of other lunch customers. To be expected but we were quick to pay and leave. The experience continues through the whole thing. Dressing on mixed greens a bit tart with vinegar- Caesar much better. Nicoise dressing also great. The burger was ok but go with seafood.

First time here and was very pleased. Service, cocktails, wine selection and food were excellent. There is a swanky vibe about this spot but yet its small enough to be intimate. Great spot for a date, celebrate a special event catching up with friends. Bar has seating but it's not the type of place where you can really meander about. While we had a table reservation there seemed to be ample opportunity to sit at the bar if you were patient and waited to spots to open up.

Have been multiple times and usually a good experience. Based on this data point has gone a bit downhill. Service was not overtly rude, but definitely brusque and less than friendly. Food quality also left a bit to be desired (don’t recommend the calamari as was rubbery).

Probably will give it another shot given I’ve had two positive experiences there but disappointing especially given price point

Went for dinner with my husband to try a nee restaurant. It was a bit of a drive, but was so worth it. Our food was delicious, our server Andre was amazing and we left there super happy. It was quite expensive but we were expecting that. Would definitely go again.

This place was a winner. We grabbed it randomly on open table, and will be going back. Cocktails were excellent. Only small, and I mean small critique is that the Moscow mule didn't come in a copper mug. It was served in a high glass, but still delicious. Husband had steak. I had tuna. All perfect. Shared sides were green beans, mashed potato, and sweet potato dumpling. Green beans were amazing. Sweet potato dumplings were delicious, but almost could have been a dessert. Ambiance was excellent, and staff super friendly. Definite return.

Pleasant ambiance. Luckily we were seated in the back away from the bar and it was quieter there. Steak was delicious. Grouper was very tasty but artichokes underneath were soggy and sour. Service was nice. Banana custard dessert was delicious.
