The steak and lobster was awesome. We enjoyed great shrimp and oysters as well. The service was amazing from the bar to the table where we are dinner. I highly recommend this place to eat!

Beautiful room, okay menu, very acceptable wine-list, and mostly decent service. It's hard to fault this plaza restaurant on any count, except perhaps the kitchen, which turns out standard fare without a lot of creative effort. That makes this a steady-Eddie steak and seafood joint, that seldom disappoints, but occasionally leaves you to ponder whether you might have done just... More

The good: * Consistent quality food, generally good * Staff is pleasant and helpful The bad: * The price is exorbitant for what you get * Ambiance is a bit too chic / modern for me This is a great option for business lunches and other professional functions, and the occasional meal.

We were at Black and Blue for a corporate dinner with a rather large party. The atmosphere is very nice and the food was very good, but it is not a top tier Steakhouse. I have dined at some of the finest Steakhouses in the country and although this place is very nice it does not measure up to the... More

I have had the pleasure of Dining at Black and Blue many a time. I can say honestly I have never had a bad experience nor a bad Meal. You know how everyone always says they can make this better at home, well you can't. The prices are a little above normal, but you get what you pay for, EXCELLENCE!

The place is priced in mid range and has nice and somewhat upscale atmosphere compared to the Rochester offering in eateries. The staff was very friendly but the food didn't live to the expectations.

Very happening place. I'm not a huge fan of the high end steak places like the Morton's etc. so I can't say where Black&Blue is better or worse. It is always busy, so if you believe that markets work, then this place meets the market test.

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!
