My wife and I dined her on a Saturday night. This was our first time at this restaurant and were looking forward to the experience. Unfortunately it was not the dining experience we were expecting. We arrived on time for our reservation and were promptly seated in the upper level. After a couple of minutes our server introduced himself and... More

Excellent food, spectacular service and delightful ambiance. I have nothing but praise. It was a cold night so the table beside the large window made it a bit cold. Upon mentioning it, the heat was turned up and it became quite comfortable.

Ate at Black and Blue last night. Food was as advertised and our servers were excellent and friendly. The spot is very lively so if you are looking for a traditional buttoned down steak house this is not that. But, we enjoyed the energetic vibe. The check-in for our reservation took awhile as they had tables delayed and there was... More

The steaks are wonderful here. Apparently the menu changes but we asked for something from a previous menu and it was made up for us. (Steak with oscar topping - fantastic). The salad was generous and delicious. Loved it all and although a bit pricey, the meal is excellent, the staff attentive, and I wish I had saved room for... More

Sat Dec 3 6:30pm reservations were made early as we had been to see an afternoon play prior to dinner. Seated promptly although our view was overlooking the stairs from the first floor to the second. Waiter greeted us, French accent I detect, & wasn't really very helpful with drink selection. There was no drinks/cocktail menu only a wine menu.... More

We were put in a tiny corridor by the window, it felt as if we were in a railway carriage, as the area is no more than 6 ft wide, and it was cold (even though we booked). I think to appreciate the atmosphere of this place, you have to be in the main area. Ask for this when you... More

Great restaurant for food, service and ambiance, very reasonable priced, great wine selection although some will put you in the poor house. For that extra special service ask for Tahara she was great. Thanks also to manager Keon maybe the evening very enjoyable.

Seated on the rooftop surrounded by walls of fire, their tent provided protection from the wind & rain while still allowing the feel of an outdoor patio. Cozy & romantic, the meal was incredibly delicious, beef carpaccio & meatballs for apps were spot on. Three of us shared a 60oz cut with a variety of sides. Brussel sprouts were to... More

Best beef my wife and I have ever had anywhere in the world. Service is first rate, friendly, informative, not over bearing. If you have a woman or a man you're trying to impress, this is the place!

My husband and I decided on Black & Blue to celebrate our birthdays as they are so close together. We were seated upstairs which was quiet and romantic. Our server was Emily and she was simply lovely. She was very knowledgeable with the perfect amount of helpfulness without being intrusive. The signature cocktails were fantastic. We started with beef carpaccio... More

Description
The magic of a classic steakhouse, but with a decidedly contemporary twist. In-house aged rare cuts of beef, tableside Caesar salads, flambes, flaming coffees, and more. While he may find it familiar, it's definitely not your Daddy's steak house!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
