Modern, and unique.....I walked in and all of the staff greeted me. Our table was being prepared (we arrived early) so we were welcomed to the bar. When the staff member escorted us to our table, I couldn't help but notice the smile on everyone's face. It felt like we were guests at their home. Very refreshing! Service was on... More

First date with my wife when I met her. We return as often as possible. It's the best dinner I've had ever. It's not cheap here but no better way to impress a girl or just eat like kings.

We always take out clients or business associates to this restaurant and we are never disappointed. It's always consistent & fun. The staff is always attentive, informative and delivers. The steaks are always cooked to perfection. The only negative that stands out through out the years is the noice level. If you can get past that, it's a great place... More

Went there for the second time for a special occasion. First was much better. This time, wait staff was inattentive. Wife's steak had to go back for more cooking. Refilled iced tea one time, then never saw waitress again until the end. For the price, which was over $100 for 2 steaks and one salad, 1 beer and an iced... More

We went to celebrate a big number birthday... looking forward to crab and steak and a lovely evening. The chairs we so... big that neither one of us could sit comfortably at all. The restaurant was also extremely noisy. We constantly had to repeat the same comments. The food was good but a restaurant is more than food. We will... More

So that's fine - I really didn't want to disturb others. When I walked int he the hostess took our cake (BTW - no plate charge) and the flowers - very nice! A couple... More

I love Black and Blue. In fact I am an executive club member. I dine there every couple of months. Food was great as usual. I love the filet migion. It has a great taste to it. I love how it is served hot in a skillet. Garlic mashed potatoes are tasty too. My husbands birthday passed. We always get... More

The staff went out of their way to help us celebrate or 31st wedding anniversary, giving us a little card and a glass of delicious champagne. Excellent service and always good food. I recommend reservations and s table upstairs. The downstairs is loud. It's expensive, but it's worth it if you like good steak.
