Reliably good steakhouse "quirky", inconsistent service, strange management behaviour.

We are locals and live very close to Black & Blue. We've been going to the place since day one and have enjoyed a bit of a love-hate relationship with it ever since.

Yes its an upmarket restaurant with a brilliant wine list and food to die for. But what really makes it was the service we got, from the front door greeter to the sommelier it was all superb. I found the wine list to be large and inclusive, but the waiters knowledge was excellent and he guided us well, I particularly... More

Great steak house. The wagu is worth tasting. Seems to me that every thing we ordered we could share and did . I could not find anything to complain about.It is less noisey on the main level , but if it is sunny , the upper roof top deck is second to none. The staff are very knowledgeable and always... More

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. We were visiting for Valentine's weekend and it was our first time dining here. Jeffrey was able to provide us with great food recommendations and offer us excellent service. Jeffrey was very knowledgeable about the menu and give us options based on what we like. He made our first visit here very... More

Celebrated my daughters 21st birthday with family and friends. The service was beyond my expectations, they were very accommodating. The happy hour menu had a wide range of items that everyone enjoyed. I would recommend the rooftop for any special occasion and we will definitely be back. Thank you blue and black staff for making my daughters 21st birthday special!

I went with friends for a late dinner. Drinks and food were amazing!!! Fun, upbeat music and our waiter was incredible. Pricey, but worth it. I had the beef stroganoff. Best I've ever had!
