Great Food, Snooty Service

I have eaten here several times and am an Executive Club member. I enjoy the food, which keeps me coming back, but the service hinders more frequent visits. I feel like my $$$ check is not good enough from several waiters. It is a very upscale place, and the snooty attitude is not a good quality. I... read more

A business group of six on a Thursday evening. Starters were all ok although the server was a little unclear on the preparation of some of the dishes - especially the fish. The soft shell crab starter was excellent and the chop salad definitely family style! It was slightly annoying that the wine (by the glass) was suddenly switched without... More

well, we are not "fancy" people, truth be told a diner suits us fine, that being said it is nice to dress up and go someplace "real nice" (as Counsin Eddy from Christmas Vacation would say). From the outside it is a blip on strip mall map. However inside is fantastic, two levels, elegant bar, white leather seats and booths.... More

The food and service were very good. The waitress, bus boys were very efficient, helpful, knew what they were doing. Unfortunately they are pricey, everything is al a cart. Plan on spending a minimum $100 a couple, likely more with drinks or wine.

We dine here frequently. I am a vegetarian and there always seems to be something for me to eat when accompanying family or friends. The sweat potato dumplings are to die for... the stuffed peppers are nice. The grilled asparagus is perfectly prepared every time as is the orzo mac-in-cheese. My friends are always happy with the steak, fish and... More

Being in town with colleagues from both US and Europe. We booked at this restaurant considered as one of "the place to be" for food in the Rochester area. Welcome has been good with a first drink shared at the bar where people seems to enjoy the nice decoration and surrounding. When the people in party were finally all present... More

Energetic at the bar and great consistent cuisine. This is our "Go To" place when we want a great meal and a great time. The restaurant will not disappoint you.

I love seafood, and Black and Blue never misses the mark. Order a special. The chefs focus on taste and creativity, making something memorable each evening. Nice drinks and great desserts, too.

To begin with this was going to be a great night out for my daughter, granddaughter and me. Sadly we chose the wrong restaurant. We had to send back the whole lobster - too tough, garlic mashed potatoes - too cold. The next lobster was also tough but better. My granddaughter did leave a good portion of the meat because...

I finally got around to using a gift card from 3 years previous at the Black and Blue. They were very kind and when my lovely bride called to make reservations she indicated it was our 5 year wedding anniversary. They started us off with some complimentary champagne, delicious. All the food was great and the service was excellent. Linda,... More
