Great but expensive

This is a very upscale restaurant, pricey and well worth it. We cannot afford to go here often but is great once in a while.

Had a really nice night out, dinner and wine. The filet was excellent, service was great and the atmosphere was pleasant. Sat at one of the booths across from the bar, had a great meal, just a nice time.

We visit the Buffalo, New York, area every year. This year, my birthday happened to fall in this time frame. So, of course, I made a reservation at Black & Blue. I ordered lobster and was served the most gigantic lobster tail I've ever seen! It was delicious!

Black and Blue ranks in the top 2 steak houses in the Buffalo area in my opinion. My husband and I are "filet" enthusiasts. We seek out the best steak houses wherever we go. Having Black and Blue in our hometown is s blessing. It compares to quality big city steak houses like Mortons. The wine selection is incredible. Beautiful... More
