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

So.. I was excited to try this restaurant as I had read some positive reviews. Let me say that I don't mind spending money for very good food. They brought bread and butter to the table. It was very tasty. I ordered a glass of Malbec from Argentina that tasted like it came from a corner store. Then came the... More

We had lunch with friends at Black and Blue and were very satisfied with wonderful food. We really enjoyed the lobster bisque and she-crab soup, steak salad, scallops, and yellowfin nicoise salad. Dessert was a caramel cashew custard, very nice. The wine list is incredible, service was great, and they even had some local beers. We also liked the accessibility... More

After trying this place a few times in the past, enough time had passed that we thought we'd try it again. Gave up, already, on eating at a table so tried the bar, again. I have to say that the bartenders are great and super friendly. Patrick and Curtis took care of us. I ordered the Black & Blue Salad,... More
