So we'd experienced the location in Buffalo on several occasions and thought we'd try the Rochester location since we were in town. The experience was as good as the Buffalo location. The menu seemed to be the same although they did not have the Jumbo Australian Lobster Tail. The jumbo Shrimp were excellent and the Hawk Fish (special) was very... More

I went to Black and Blue with my husband for my birthday. We got to sit upstairs, overlooking the restaurant and bar. The booths are massive and so comfortable. The only negative of our experience was the bread was slightly burned. The service was wonderful. We had 2 great waiters with patience and a sense of humor. We both ordered... More

Lived up to its reputation and more! Great atmosphere. Husband loved the ribeye and I had a perfectly cooked filet mignon. Service was excellent, professional and attentive. This was more than dinner, it was wonderful. Will definitely dine here again when we are in Rochester, NY.

The man at the front desk of our hotel recommended this restaurant if you wanted good steaks. He said his boss rarely goes out to eat for steak, as he can grill them at home better then he would expect to get at a restaurant; however, he did recommend Black & Blue. I understand why. Both my husband and friend... More

I have eaten here many times and have always had a great meal. The steaks are incredible, especially the filet mignon. Try the lamb chops, they are out of this world. The king crab legs are delicious. The prices are a little high for Rochester, but it ranks up there with Smith and Willionsky form the city !!!

We thought about going to B&B for years....and finally someone gave us a dinner coupon in trade for something, and we decided to head there -- thinking man, a good steak house, this should be a nice experience. But it really wasn't We were seated upstairs; it's an odd seating -- being able to see the main floor below, everything... More

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
