The She Crab Soup was the highlight of the meal. Ribeye was tough the filet mignon was soft but needed more seasoning. The side scallops were good. Wondered if the lump crab add-on was from a can as my husband had stomach issues on the way home. The quality of food was not worth the money.

We had our anniversary dinner at the Black & Bleu. Our food was pretty good. My husband had to send his french fries back because they were not fresh and extremely salty. Service was a bit slow but our waiter was nice and professional.

The service and food were outstanding. They really obeyed the guidelines from the CDC. Face masks and clean gloves for all staff. I felt safe! The menu seemed a bit pricey, but the portions were appropriate for the cost. The steak was so delicious, tender and flavorful. We were stuffed and had plenty of leftovers. Will come again soon! 👍🏾👍🏾

I wasn't sure how it would be since we visited right after it opened after the COVID shut down. I have to say that I was not disappointed. The food and service was right back up to the pre-COVID performance. We absolutely enjoyed the food and felt that the restaurant had provided the safeguards needed to protect their diners. So excited that they are back in business and we can once again enjoy the great food.

Ordered Steak/Lobster tail. ( 75$ + 32$ ) Butterfly steak was well done too overcooked. Only potatoes available were mashed, FF, scalloped. I didn’t want any of those with my expensive meal. Server told us Russet potatoes were in shortage due to Covid ! What ?! Why are FF an option ? Bread didn’t come till after main course was served.
The lobster was good, huge actually.
My dining partner had the Cowboy steak , she enjoyed it . But no sides . She too wanted a baked or twice baked potato . My bill before tip , 130$ for a cocktail, lobster and smaller filet .
The lighting was so dark it was hard to read the menu.
I’d go back again, but it’s pricey .

Holy snap!!! One of the nicest restaurants I have been to living in Buffalo. Service was phenomenal. Drinks were good. Steaks were nice and juicy. Never dry, cooked exactly how I wanted. Chicken breast was moist and delicious. Full of flavor and love. The service is spectacular. Very clean restaurant, from the dining floor to restrooms. Will be back there again!!

Always have had a good experience at Back and Blue but on this visit the quality of meat was considerably different for the same order of filet mignon. Maybe the COVID-19 had some influence on the operations that day but generally would expect standards to be higher and product to be consistent. Overall, service and ambience were very good.

Great attentive service but so loud could barely hear our server. We had assumed a more intimate table having had made prior reservations but we were right next to a busy stair way. Food very good - also very pricey - drinks could be fuller... a $12 drink should be filled to the rim not half way.

Kathleen and her helpers really helped make our evening out with our two moms a night to remember! She was kind, helpful, patient and cheerful! We had a wonderful time, and the one mom who has been facing health challenges and needed a special meal, was made to feel extra special. It meant the world to her to feel like the center of attention. Thank you once again for a fantastic evening! We will be back.

Our dinner was amazing!! My partner and I both got the steak and lump crab and it was the best steak I have ever had. The crab was delicious and our side of mac n cheese was also incredible! The wait staff was extremely friendly and fast and we did not have a single problem with our dinner. I would definitely recommend and will be coming back.

Haven't been here in years because it was about average in the past. My mind has changed and found it to be top shelf this time around. Excellent service, coordinated, professional and friendly. Food hit the mark with every course. Steak was perfectly cooked, tender and well seasoned. I will return a lot sooner this time.

Food and service were excellent. The only thing that I could find fault in was the bar service. We arrived early for our reservation planning to have drinks and apps at the bar. The bartenders were very inattentive. Although it was not extremely crowded and there were 3-4 people working behind the bar it was very difficult to get anyone's attention. Once we were seated our server introduced herself right away and took our drink order. The bread they put on the table was so good we went through 2 baskets! Everyone was pleased with their food, the steaks were definitely the most popular. While we were there we made a reservation to come back for my daughter's graduation in May.
