I had dinner here with business associate a few months ago and found the restaurant to be top notch. The food was very good as was the waitstaff.

We have dined here at least 10 times and believe that it's one of the top 3 restaurants in all of Buffalo. Love the atmosphere and service. We've tried many menu items. Steak Arabica, Ribeye, Scallops, Lump blue crab, Chop salad, Sweet potato dumplings (side item) are among our favorites!!

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!
