I have not eaten here for awhile as I thought of the place as an upscale but loud stake house (the "nobody goes there anymore as it's too crowded"). At a recent business meeting though I tried their seafood (that I normally do not eat in inland restaurants). It was surprisingly good: really well prepared, tasty, nicely presented. Service was...

I have eaten here a few times. The meat is top USDA and is melt in the mouth, absolutely superb. I will be there again very soon.

I go to Back and Blue several times a year. In fact, I am an executive club member. Unfortunately this visit did not measure up to it's usual. I chose the Filet, which I eat every visit. It was dry and more charred than usual. I had to scrape the char from the steak. The garlic mashed potatoes were good,... More

My Family went to Black and Blue Friday night And all three of us had a wonderful experience. The wait staff were helpfull in explaining the options and attentive in service. We all decided on steaks three different and loved each bite. We felt the calamari appetizer was the best calamari we have EVER had! The crab dip appetizer also... More

Only been twice (we only get to the area every few years!), but always can't wait to get back. Quite simply a great steak house, with a very comprehensive wine list. Service is excellent and friendly, without being over the top. Only reason I don't give it 5 Stars - prices - you can spend less in a one star... More

Everything was perfect on this evening. Greeted when we arrived . Our pre server was Emma and our waiter was Bill. They both did a great job. Bill discovered it was our aniniversery and made a pointe to bring us a dessert with a candle in it. Nice touch. The manager made a point to check and see how everything... More

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

Very good steak house in the Rochester area. Service good and food is delicious . Have been there twice with my son who is a student at the University.

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. I've been here for numerous lunch meetings, several... More
