FINE FOOD BUT...

Fine food without a doubt but be prepared to pay for it. A NYC sort of atmosphere and nice menu. Almost feels out of place in this area (Rochester, NY). The only negatives are that it gets loud and the prices are most definitely high.

As always, fantastic!! The waiter, Don, is awesome! He is great at describing the specials, very efficient and friendly. We love the crab and lobster dip and we had special beignets for appetizers...then the steaks...mouthwateringly delicious! Pricey, yes...however it is worth every penny to our meat loving family! We also celebrated my older sons birthday...they brought out death by chocolate... More

I was very excited to go back to this restaurant after about 5 years. A relative was in town and we thought it would be a good choice. The service started out like gang busters. The waiter's "assistant" showed up before we were even comfortably seated. We were handed menus and away we went. Our waiter came by to take... More

Pretty pricey and not all that exceptional. If you're seated in the front of the restaurant or upstairs it's modern and moderately urban-feeling. If you're seated in the back it's reminiscent of a retirement home with outdated decor and a temp that is stifling. We were sweating so much by the end of our meal it was ridiculous.

This place has excellent steaks, wine list and oysters on half shell. But not great for a quiet dinner for two.

If you're in Rochester - this is THE place to go. The bar is large and fun. The staff and service was incredible. The food? Everything you would hope for. The bread is all homemade by their own bakery. Valet parking is nice / especially on a rainy evening.

I went at Black & Blue with some colleagues. They've chosen a steak which was absolutely amazing! Huge and perfectly cooked, with nice sides. The athmosphere was pretty and chic, the waiter was elegant and friendly which I really appreciated. The wine was served like in France (even better!). The price are quite high but it really worth it.

B&B has been my favorite steak house for many years and I always celebrate my special occassions in this restaurant. You cannot get a better filet anywhere perfectly seared and cooked to order, and seasoned to perfection. This is the highlight of every meal here. My husband and I got married 2 weeks ago and celebrated our small wedding with... More

We two couples go out to eat for each of our birthday's and this year we chose the Black & Blue Steak & Crab Restaurant in Rochester, NY. The decor is modern and attractive and we were seated on the mezzanine level in a very comfortable booth plus one chair. Daniel was our excellent, very informative and sociable, waiter. Specialty...
