If you want to impress someone with the price, this is your place. If you want an above average meal, outstanding service and to see what you are eating, skip this one. I had the petite steak and a glass of wine. My date had a salad and a glass of wine. Cost over $100.00.
So dark waitress had to loan us a small flashlight to read the menu (yes a flashlight). Other than that the service was indifferent.
I have no problem with price if the quality and quantity of food is worth it. But I also like to see what I am eating.
This is all marketing and no delivery. Skip this place.

Can be rather noisy when busy. Steaks score high but some of the appetizers miss the mark (the Kobe metballs). Good bar service and varied wine list.

We were referred to this restaurant by the hotel we were staying in. A 9 oz sirloin cost $28.99 which was the least expensive steak on the menu. With the steak you got a choice of sauce and one side. The steak was not worth the money paid. I have had better steaks at chain restaurants

The atmosphere was very nice and so was the service. With 4 of us dining, none of us were impressed with the food.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone

Black & Blue has a relaxed atmosphere where you can unwind and have a delicious meal without breaking the bank. The fillet is a great cut and always served to your liking. Save room for the chocolate truffles at the end of your meal. They also have a VIP card that has great benefits if you go there a lot.

I've been to Black and Blue numerous times. Great place for groups, business, romantic dinner, special occasions and a great happy hour! Very attentive waitstaff, bartenders, managers always visible and checking in with guests.
