    This was our first night in Amsterdam and I had read about this restaurant back in the States. . It did not disappoint. The steak was delicious. My husband had hanger steak that was also delicious cooked perfectly. The fruit were perfect and the asparagus with cheese were cooked to perfection.

    We actually ate here twice on our visit to Amsterdam. Both times my wife and I shared the Ribeye for two. It was a big thick ribeye that (both times) iseemed larger than the menu said… had to be 20 to 24 oz. Great grill flavor. Fries were crispy and unlimited, but one basket was enough for both of us. There were other things on the menu so it is not just about steak. Service was very warm, humorous, and friendly. I recommend this place.

    The restaurant was very busy but it was still had a cosy, warm vibe. It was windy, rainy, and cold outside but great food, service, and ambiance made it a great evening.

    Overall, we were pleased with the experience. Being from the states, we are used to having fish deboned before serving so it was a little different for some people who were not used to having to perform that task.

    The location was fabulous. Around the corner from our hotel. Warm and inviting environment. The food was good too. The staff was very friendly, just a little overwhelmed. Could be due to Pride week.

    The wait staff was excellent but everything else was just “ok”. Long wait, really warm to sit in the upper finning room, super loud, with ok food.

    Cozy place perfect for a date, with amazing meat to share (600g lobster), fries that you can refill included in the main dish, perfect service, and gluten-free nice bread provided! Absolutely worth it, with a price that was worth it for the overall experience!

    These guys went over and above to fit myself and 6 friends in at very short notice on a busy Friday night….after we tried earlier in the week when it was full. They then delivered on the food also…..all guests were very happy. Well done black and blue !

    The wine, the scallops for appetizer, and the two small steak fillets, were all delicious. With a salad included, this was a great meal, for value. It was a special occasion, as it was my birthday. On our dessert of pistachio ice cream on a ring of pineapple, with pistachio bits on top, the staff came out singing Happy Birthday with a sparkling candle on top. We were seated towards the back, in a little romantic corner, and the waiter checked on us several times, without being intrusive. It will be a special memory from Amsterdam for my wife and me. ????

    The experience was great, the beef was delicious. The restaurant was full for that reason the restaurant service was slow. The general terms are very good restaurant, recommended

    My daughter and I enjoyed our evening at the Black and Blue. Very nice setting, close to the Anne Frank House and canal tours. The service was pleasant and prompt, and we both had their signature steak. Highly recommend.

    Great place. Extremely tasty food, reasonably priced and very good service. The whole place had a real buzz. My wife is a vegetarian and she was impressed with the veggie options. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

    Busy vibe but staff were efficient and food was tasty. Only issue was we were on occasions cold as a door nearby was left open. One of the staff noticed me putting scalf on and ran to close it.

    We loved the restaurant it was great, very warm, comfortable, good lighting, perfect environment really. The food was good but was cold, carrot soup, awesome taste - cold, veggies, awesome taste - cold, ribeye steak, perfect medium - but bit on the cold side. 100% sure it would have been practically perfect if it was just hot(er). Had a vision of the dishes sitting on the pass, waiting..

    Lovely setting, great food, a shame about the service. Overwhelming sense of uncertainty with orders and dishes, I was served the wrong burger, which I had to wait to get redone and then a extra portion of chips that we didn’t order arrived, which still made it to the bill even though we hadn’t asked for them.

    The staff is not trained in the basics. Not the employees fault, but the management does not take the time to train them in proper technique. We got out drinks 5 minutes after our main dish, too long for a drink service. The menu was limited but no mention of it was made on their website or when the reservation was made. The servers never came to clear the tables and ask for coffee and desserts. So we paid up and left. This was the 2nd time in 2 weeks we went there. We won’t be back. Sorry, so disappointing. Train your staff.

    Food was outstanding. Timing of delivery of our appetizers was spot on. Dinner was another matter all together. I believe it was our waiters first night and think he forgot to put in our main dinner items. He needs to have much much more training!

    Lively , buzzy restaurant. Excellent food. Very, very busy on a Saturday night, if you don’t mind waiting for a little while then it’s really worth it. But they are busy and rushing around so don’t expect it to be quick! We found it to be excellent food, lively and people happily chatting while waiting for dinner. Cozy atmosphere. We loved it.

    Friendly environment but low profile service and food. It took 50 mins since we ordered to get our food ready. Food was less than average. The scallops we ordered were three gummy pieces for 18 euros. I will not get back.

    The food was excellent, meat superb, one of the best that we eat in Amsterda. Staff was very nice (the only complaint is that they forgot to bring us extra delicious potatoes). Very good red wine and sorbeto. We will definitely come again.

    Lobster and steak are good but not remarkable. There is a serious smoke problem in this restaurant, almost by 10 minutes intervals we are covered by heavy bbq smoke...;((((

    Lovey restaurant, great food! The service was nice, kind waitresses but they came back twice every time, one would ask our order then the other would come back and ask what we ordered again! Other than that was great
