It's a nice restaurant if you want to spend a lot of money for a basic dinner. Yes it's fancy and meant for the "elite" and big money crowd!

Black and Blue has been around for a long time. The quality is still good, but it has slipped some over the years. The steaks and still excellent and the raw bar is great. The servers are very good, most of them have been working there for years. It's a fun place to go for special occasions. Great burgers before... More

Ordinarily we don't visit a restaurant in a shopping center for dinner, but we were really glad that we stopped here. First of all, you will forget the shopping center location the minute you walk into the nicely decorated reception area and curvy bar. The dining area is well upholstered and elegant, full of well dressed happy diners. The staff... More

We are not prone to eating in Plazas but if the food is good, why complain. Black and Blue is known to be one of the best steakhouses in the area. Our experience is consistent. Very nicely decorated with great service and menu. Parking in Pittsford Plaza can be a hassle if you go at movie times but the valet... More

If you are looking for a place to host a business dinner/event, special occasion, or romantic evening...look no further because this spot has it all!!! Ambiance (classy and elegant), food, drink, great staff and for me personally, the best Maryland She-crab soup in the city!

Black and Blue is very expensive but worth a night out for something special. the atmosphere is elegant, the service impeccable! Their beef is cooked to perfection and the sides are done well. Not a place to go often but worth a night out. It is in located in a shopping center but do not allow that to deter your... More

Went as part of a "sponsored" event (i.e. I wasn't paying), so of course I went. The food was very good, the drinks were great...the price tag was EVEN greater (mind boggling actually) and that was before I even calculated the TIP amount. Of course, we ate and drank like kings (on the sponsors tab), but for the average JOE... More

This is a great place for special occasions. It is also very nice for that important business dinner. The serve is extraordinary. The food is prepared wonderfully. i am especially fond of the fresh oysters. The bar is relaxing yet elegant and the bartenders are terrific.Bring your wallet, but be prepared to be pampered.

Only went here once. Would not go back. Too expensive for what we got. Nice décor but it's in a shopping center.

I was invited out for a gathering of 12 people at Black & Blue by a client. We had a small dining room to ourselves and had a wonderful meal with a lot of attention by the staff. I had the steak that was on special and I loved it...all the rest of our group enjoyed their meals as well.
