Headed here for a nice Valentine's dinner. The decor and atmosphere is fabulous. We were walked to our table by a kind and humorous gentleman by the name of Phil--he was excellent! Dinner was great as was the food. I especially enjoyed the onion rings and Mac and cheese sticks. Would definitely visit again.

Worst Valentines with my girlfriend (our first together). Our reservation was at 9pm because it was fully booked. We got our appetizers early and they were great. However, we wait for more than 2 hours for our main dishes to come and they were BOTH TERRIBLY BURNT. My gf's beef steak was over-cooked and exterior got burnt when we asked... More

Happy hour in downtown Vancouver can be challenging because on a Friday afternoon it is a very busy scene. Black + Blue makes no mistakes here as they allow you to make reservations on their Roof Top patio. Even in the middle of winter is seems like you are outside. Of course in the spring and summer they roll back... More

A fancy, pricey restaurant with strange dress codes. Why would someone will wear sneakers, T-shirts and baseball cap to an upscale restaurant. The pop music is loud and along with the dining room noises make the dining experience unbearable. We ordered two bottles of wines before we ordered our food and sadly they couldn't located the wines. Needless to say,... More

We wanted to find good steaks and found this restaurant. Interior design feels trendy and cool. The staff was really friendly and professional. Food was great. We were really pleased with our filet mignons. Will be one of our regular restaurants in Vancouver going forward.

Food was excellent but menu was very small. Prices were fair market value. Bathrooms were far away from tables below. Tables are too close together in the entry area where we were seated even though we had reservations. Assumed we'd have better seating with a reservation. They did move us to a different table across from the original table we... More

My friends and I decided to try Black and Blue for Dine Out Vancouver 2017. Several of our party had been there before and had had good experiences, so I was looking forward to trying it for the first time. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to expectations, or the standards I've experienced at other Glowbal group establishments. I had the... More

This is an excellent venue, loved the decor, ask to get seated upstairs on the mezzanine as this is a great spot to be able to see the whole restaurant. I ordered the beef wellington and was disappointed as it was small, dry, not much flavour, fries over cooked and not really any vegetables at all and presentation poor i.e.... More

MEAT at its best but the Happy Hour is also a must visit. The oysters were freshly shucked and the dine out meal was a great value. Super service by all the staff

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.
