Wonderful experience!

My husband and I have been to Black & Blue several times and have always had a great experience. The food is exceptional and the wine list is quite extensive. The wait staff has always been very efficient, helpful and professional. I especially love the lobster and crab fondue as an appetizer. My... read more

The restaurant was slow but The ambiance was nice the manager and the bartender are both very friendly and checked on me regularly. for... More

Food was awesome, great atmosphere, great service, a fun place to go with friends and hang out. I had the Filet and it was very tender. it wasn't cheap but worth it.

i thought the food was just so/so and very overpriced. Got the feeling that since there seems to be a buzz about this place they don't have to work hard and they think people will love it. i thought it was overpriced for what it was and the atmosphere was sterile and not inviting at all - the wait staff...

In November, we went to Black and Blue to celebrate my birthday. We had had a rough fall and going there was a good way to get over the hurtle. We decided we had such a wonderful time and great meal we would return to ring in 2015. We were seated on time at 6:30 and they had a full... More

We went here for dinner just before Christmas and it was a bit slow, so we expected outstanding service. NOT! We had to ask for everything we needed... Including drink refills. Our server brought our check before asking if we wanted dessert. We asked to order key lime pie when she brought the bill. The lobster bisque was very good... More

The very Young hostess Emma judged "the book by the cover" the place was empty and she wanted to seat us by the kitchen. I asked to be seated elsewhere and was given a look. No I don't live in pittsford BUT I have plenty of cash. The food was great and waiter was nice. I think I would prefer... More

My husband and I dropped in for lunch the other day and sat at the bar. We ordered a couple cocktails. Unfortunately they had no bartender that day and they had to get someone to make them. Took them about 15 minutes and a couple tries to get it right. The manager graciously gave us our round of drinks on... More

Dark, dingy (dusty rail moldings, dust on lights) and super high price for average food and below average service. I will never go here again (my date agrees). The portions are great if you are on a diet and never need more than 100 calories per meal. Drinks are priced at top shelf but what is served is definitely middle... More
