Located in a strip mall so doesnt look too impressive but is one of the finer places here in the Rochester area. Both steak and seafood are done very well here. Make a reservation so you arent disappointed about not having a table.

Great bar ...food was ok. We were a table of six, the restaurant was very noisy and difficult to have a conversation. We probably will not go back.

WE had an AMAZING dinner--great service and pleasant, efficient waitstaff. Their chopped salad was wonderful and my grouper simply melted in my mouth.

We've been going to B&B for many years and frequently enjoy some of the nicer restaurants in town (or our of town). They've been quite consistent over 30+ visits, with only a single prior experience being a true problem evening. This past Saturday was hit-n-miss. As is often the case with a 7pm+ reservation, we waited a bit for our... More

The Kobe meatballs are excellent, as are all the meat dishes. We found conversation to be difficult because it's pretty noisy. Ask for a booth upstairs for a more intimate dinner experience.

I've visited this restaurant numerous times because I live right around the corner. It's generally good--food/service/menu is passable but not exemplary. FREE Valet parking available on weekends which is certainly welcome, as the mall parking lot is a nightmare (mentioned by another reviewer). Reservations suggested--get a booth for 4 or more people. I must mention that I was there with... More

Visited area on business 3 years in a row and eaten here each time. Well appointed decor with high quality ingredients, deliciously prepared and good portions. Wait staff was clean and professional. Restaurant crowed on a Wednesday night--always a good sign. This restaurant stands above all.

My family and I went to Black and Blue for my birthday, and we had a lovely evening! The food and the service were wonderful, and I loved the opportunity to try some pricier wines by the glass.

My problem here was that dinner for four came to $300 including wine, tip but not cocktails. This is a lot of money in Rochester and the reality of the experience didn't measure up. For those who intend to visit with others in their party, it would be good to know that this place is noisy and that diners can... More

We were referred here by a friends friend. I read the reviews, looked at the menu and it seemed like a logical choice. The service, food and atmosphere was exactly as described on their website and by TripAdvisor.
