The food was delicious (I had the salmon) (my boyfriend had the Lamb) and the wine was very good. Our server was so sweet and so was the hostesses. The managers were amazing and got us seated within 10 minutes of us arriving and not having a reservation. I would definitely recommend it and we will be going back!!

I had stopped in for an impromptu lunch and I was more than amazed at how great everything was. The manager Elaine was one of a kind. She was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection. Our server Olivia was incredible! Clone her and that smile and you'd have yourself a winning staff! All in all,... More

Started with a plate of oysters - delicious! The NY Strip was excellent, cooked perfectly and topped with lump crab. Great ambiance and will be back!

My wife and I celebrated an anniversary by going to Black & Blue. It was fantastic all the way around. Great wine, food and atmosphere. The staff made you feel like royalty, and the GM Adam even greeted us and made sure everything was good. We couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate. Thank you B & B.

WOW! what a great experience. Had a business dinner at this restaurant and was very pleased. Service was great, Sarah Jane a true southerner like me was wonderful. All three in our party had a different cut of steak and ended up sharing. Only downside the asparagus needed help. Whenever in the area again it will be my must go... More

We went there Friday night. Our service was very good. The menu was excellent. It did take a while for our food to reach the table. Again, it was a Friday night and the restaurant was very busy. I ordered my steak medium well, and it was spot on. I had the crabcake for an appetizer, and asparagus as a... More

The food and atmosphere are first rate and I entertain clients there most often when visiting from out of town. However, last week I had a visitor from out of town join me there and the experience was horrible. The food was great but the service was surprisingly sub-par. The next day I received a survey from the restaurant online... More

I've had lunch here several times and dinner once. I never was disappointed with the meals served. The atmosphere is classy and quiet, even with a good number of tables being served at once. The food is fresh and tasty, nicely presented and always something to look forward to. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Went here with four colleagues and ordered kobe burger which was served with thin cut fries, lettuce and onions. The burger was a small to mid portion size and I only ate some of my fries. Overall the place is impressively decorated, the wine bar looks awesome (ceiling high). My colleagues' orders (another Kobe, caesar salad, etc) looked good as... More
