Extensive menu with the best steaks & freshest seafood around. They actually provide a list of when & where the seafood came from. You want king crab? They will take it out of the shell for you! It's upscale & expensive, but definitely worth it! Enjoy

A great restaurant for celebrating birthdays or anniversaries, or just to be nice to ourselves. Very consistent service and food..............always good and cooked to order. They can do a very nice "well-done" salmon. Nice touch when presenting the bill......little dish of chocolate truffles.

My family and I went to Black and Blue for steaks on a Friday night. The service was great! Just seems pretty expensive for the what we ordered. If you want to go for a HIGH END DINNER this is the place. Just seems there are better places for much less.

The restaurant is in a plaza but do not let that affect your plans to go for a special evening . Great wines by the glass or bottle and yummy appetizers and main dishes. The service is very good and the dining room has upholstered chairs so sit back and get comfy. Relax and have a great dinner.

Kobe Meatballs, then on to a 21oz ribeye that is lights out good. The seafood looked good also. I'm on to the seafood next for sure.

Had a lovely dinner at Black and Blue recently. The atmosphere is pleasant, muted tones, "soft". There are unique booths, fabric covered, comfortable and two levels of seating. There is also a large bar. Looks like a place people stop at just for a drink. The restaurant is wheelchair accessible and the acoustics are good. One can hold a conversation... More

We were visiting our son at University of Rochester and wanted to treat him to a nice steak. Black & Blue did not disappoint. We had a wonderful meal. The Filet Mignon and the NY Strips were cooked exactly as we asked. We went on a Saturday night and had reservations. It was quite busy. Not cheap though. Go with... More

When you enter Black & Blue you know right away you are in a first-class upscale restaurant. The decor is modern and minimalist. Service was outstanding, even vanishingly discreet, Our orders were served in a timely manner and our glasses were kept filled. My steak was perfectly cooked - well-done with a char - as ordered, and my wife's fish... More

The food was good but the server seemed somewhat self absorbed and condescending. Not what I would have expected. If it weren't for the service I would have rated higher. This visit was in Oct 2014. We will have many more visits to this area to see our son at RIT and we won't be back.
