Perfect Steaks

Hard not to like this place. Food is excellent, Everything I've tried. I have only been there for business meetings.

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...

This is my second visit to this fairly expensive eatery and as always good quality food, very nice atmosphere, good seafood and steak but overall a bit overpriced. I love crab so I was very happy with the meal

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.

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 do not feel... More

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
