We were in a line up to get in with confusion of who was being served next. The waitress was rarely seen and had to wait for service. The steak was amazing. The mash potatoes were like soupy polenta. The Caesar salad was overly potent with balsamic and horseradish. The bread was amazing. The butter cake was also delightful. I ordered English breakfast tea and They didn’t have any. So overall the experience was decent, but not as amazing as expected for the price.

While this is a high-end restaurant the food was not outstanding. The staff were pleasant and the setting was fine. If you need to entertain it works, but if you want a stunning steak go somewhere else.

Great food at a reasonable price! The seating can be a bit subpar and the noise level gets pretty energetic at times, but overall great experience. Amazing steak selections—they show you your steak before they cook it if it’s Wagyu or Kobe beef. Would 100% return again!

Really excellent steakhouse. We had cocktails and beer, Caesars salad at the table, filet and rib eye to die for cooked exactly right at medium, and a banana foster that is a sin to miss. It's that good.

My experience was average, but my guests felt it was below average. Nothing horrific, except for the Beef Wellington that was soggy and very over cooked (ordered medium rare, and received a tough overcooked and soggy dish). The Porterhouse was average. The mushrooms and asparagus tips were good. The cheese sticks were not so great, but that’s very subjective. The french onion soup and Seafood platter were average.
One concern was the waiter never asked about our food experience. No questions about how the steak was done, etc. Maybe I’m wrong to expect that, but seems to be a common practice at many restaurants. I guess if we weren’t trying to be polite Canadians, we could have simply expressed our concerns :). If I were to compare this to Gotham or Victor, this would be the bottom of that list (unless ambience is important, than Gotham would be the bottom). Note that my group almost always has dessert, but we chose to go elsewhere for that as we expected the result to be average or worst at Black + Blue. Unfortunate I guess, as my guests state they would never return, although I think everyone is entitled to have a bad day and this may have been non typical.

Mixed review here. Went for lunch for a special occasion birthday. Service fine, restaurant is beautiful. Two of the ladies ordered the burger, not the Friday beer and burger special but the main one off the menu and were very happy with it. My other girlfriend had the pork tacos and said they were great. I decided to have the steak frites as we were in a specialty steak house. For a $26 lunch entree, I felt like I got the leftover end of a steak no one else wanted, very small portion cooked to medium instead of medium rare (too small to get right) with a white sinew running through the entire portion of meat. The only thing that saved it was the nice tomato and red onion salsa served with it. The meat was cut before being brought to the table, so whoever cooked it knew it was sub-par. I didn't want to make a fuss as it was my girlfriend's birthday so I didn't send it back. The complimentary dessert they gave her for her birthday was really nice and appreciated. Overall, I'm sure they would go back. I won't.

The server has a know it all attitude. Did not check with us regarding many dining preferences. Very unfriendly as well. The lobster bisque was cold. We ordered two salads for appetizer and only one came. When we asked where’s the second one, server said he was thinking to bring the second salad to go with the main course. Totally ‘know it all’. Very unpleasant and arrogant.

Had a bad experience. Ordered a bottle of San Pellegrino TWICE, and the server never brought it despite it being on our bill at the end. And we ordered mussels and carpaccio to start and they never came. I guess she forgot to ring them in. The pastry on my boyfriend's wellington was doughy and undercooked as well. Very disappointing considering this place came so highly recommended. We still tipped our server 20% because she was nice enough, just clearly forgetful. I reached out to the restaurant regarding our experience and I still haven't heard anything back. Not impressed. I'm not looking for compensation but acknowledgement and an apology would be nice.

Was there for Valentines Day, booked in for reservations and prepaid the needed fee upfront. No problems with the hostess and their valet services (both top notch) but our server was downright terrible - his name was Alex. Both my date and I worked in the service industry (she was an experienced expediter) - so we sometimes tweak our orders (cause we are paying for it), we modified only the Caesar to use iceburg as date doesn’t like Romaine. Alex didn’t even know his menu when we asked he said they didn’t have it - yet the garden salad is made with it (1st issue). Secondly we ordered the porterhouse to share, side were simple (he messed up and didn’t check our potato had all the fixings) he then grabbed a passing order and dropped it on our table (messing up someone else’s order I’m assuming). We requested sauce with the steak and that was his third mistake, nothing arrived and he then scrambled to get us cold ones, there is his fourth mistake. You don’t put ice cold sauce on a hot steak... especially a $140 porterhouse. We made it through everything and skipped dessert cause we figured he would mess this up & left. Now some may say or he may that he was busy with many tables (sorry sir you had maybe 4-5) and we came in late in the evening (9:45). No excuses for a senior waiter to handle this many easily, he said he was one. Over all the services and the front of the house and the kitchen were great, Alex was lost, couldn’t follow up on his orders right and barely rated a 2 out of 5. If you get seated in his section, ask to move or keep on top of everything or expect a degraded experience. Overall Black and Blue has great food and staff to get you to your table but watch out for table service as it’s hot and miss.
