My husband took me to Black & Blue for my birthday. We have been there before and always liked the wine list, the food and service. Unfortunately, not this time. The service, as always, was excellent. My entree, not good. We asked what the specials were and the server advised there weren't any specials as its a new menu and... More

I can't believe after 10 years at this location the restaurant is still as busy as it is. We went in on a windy and soon to be snowing Saturday night. I was expecting the restaurant to be almost empty but when in fact the place was packed. We were lucky to secure one of the little tables by the... More

Black & Blue is amazing! We decided to eat here on our last night in Williamsville. Wish we had found them earlier in visit. Open air, modern decor, great waitstaff. My husband had great conversation with the waiter about growing up in the area and went to the same high school. We started out with the Wagu meatballs. Very tasty!... More

Had a terrific meal at Black and Blue Steak and Crab and will definitely visit when I am in the area again. A local resident recommended it and the restaurant did not disappoint! I had the colossal lobster tail which was cooked to perfection. A must visit if you are visiting Amherst.

This is a very nice restaurant that serves solid cocktails, a good wine list, very good appetizers and excellent steaks for sure. It's a nice atmosphere and the bar is nice too and the service was extremely good as well. The desserts were very tasty and the overall experience was NICE....

We went to Black and Blue on a Sunday night, it was relatively quiet, but had a great experience. The steaks were cooked perfect and the service was very good. The bartender put the game which we requested on .

This week is restaurantweek in Buffalo. We decided to try out Black and Blue. Good service, average food and a bit too noisy for conversation.

I tried to make reservations online. The only time available was 9:30 pm, so I decided to go early without one. We arrived and was greeted immediately at the door, seated promptly at what could have been one of the most desireable seating. Quickly introduced to our servers, Jessica and Maggie, who ensured all our needs were met. The food... More

Celebrated a special occasion with family at Black & Blue. The restaurant was aware of our special occasion in advance and bent over backwards to ensure our party was comfortable and well taken care of during our visit. The food, as always, was superb. This restaurant continues to exceed our expectations and after visiting all the other guys, ranks as... More

This is a beautiful and popular facility, I recognize. Heading into Amherst on a Saturday without reservations for a decent dinner, we knew might entail waits of 30 to 60 minutes to seat two. Black & Blue was the first place we looked that actually had a parking spot open at 7 pm. So in we went. They were able... More
