Although Black and Blue is a very nice place for dinner, this review is to commend them on their lunches. This is a great spot for lunch in the Williamsville, NY area. They always have their steaks available, but they also have some moderately priced lunch specials which are very tasty. Usually they have at least one wrap or sandwich... More

More or less traditional steak restaurant with some good fish choices also. Nice wine list. Efficient service. Attractive decor and large private dining area. Nice venue for business dinner. Not inexpensive, particularly when you include a la carte potatoes and vegetables, but worth the price on balance.

For some reason some people love it here. They cram tables extra close to each other to fit more people in. The foods really not great considering the price. This is a great place for someone who wants to spend a lot of money on lousy food because it looks nice inside.

We have a semi-business gathering at Black & Blue with my wife and my clients/colleagues on a Sunday evening. I had been there a couple of times and really enjoy their crab cakes. So after enjoying a weekend at Niagara Falls, we drove down for the gathering. The atmosphere was always top-notched.. Nice fireplace at the middle of the restaurant..... More

Always a fantastic experience. The food and the service is always top notch. NEVER have I had to send anything back. NEVER have I had any problems with service. I am here at least once per week when traveling in the Buffalo area.

My family gathered at the Black & Blue for a special occasion on a Saturday nite. The atmosphere of this restaurant is outstanding & elegant. There's a huge wall of wines just like in a certain Vegas restaurant where "wine angels" have to fetch your bottle. You might think you're in a swank Manhattan eatery , very modern and it... More

We also been extremely happy the food at black and blue but this time was the best. My steak was a little to pink for me. The manager was pleased to return and cooked it to perfection. He also gave us a free desert and we didn't complained. You cant be that!! The ambiance is equally excellent

We celebrated my retirement last night and went to Black & Blue for dinner. The staff was friendly and eager to assist with our every need. As a matter of fact, I brought a very nice bottle of wine from my cellar at home and there was a problem with a damaged cork. The waitress had the General Manager, Brandon... More

If you want to impress someone with the price, this is your place. If you want an above average meal, outstanding service and to see what you are eating, skip this one. I had the petite steak and a glass of wine. My date had a salad and a glass of wine. Cost over $100.00. So dark waitress had to... More
