We had tasty mock/cocktails at the bar, then ate upstairs along the railing, and enjoyed the nice ambiance and decor. (The booths looked cool, too.) Kent was our server, his service team and himself were excellent! Friendly, attentive, and great recommendations. The entire meal was...divine - French onion soup (see photo) and cowboy-cut ribeye are a must! Easily our best meal all trip!More

We booked here as we were staying across the road at The Fairmont. It had some good write ups when I googled it . But OMG it was amazing far beyond the reviews . . The staff went through all the steaks possible , the...cooking methods etc . The wine guy was ace and definitely knew his stuff the pairings he did for our dinners were amazing . The food was definitely the best and they amended my dish to suit ( I don’t like mushrooms) but everything staff , food , drink , location , decor was amazing . The next time we went in was 10 days later for our anniversary and again the staff etc were brilliant. It was also our last night in Vancouver before returning to UK . But definitely be back thank you so much for making our holiday and nights special.More

Overall experience: The meet and greet with the server was subpar. Like with 3 hostess at the door, we hoped for a much better meet and greet. I gave my name to the hostess and it took some scrolling around the iPad to find a...suitable seat for us when the restaurant was only 30% seated. Upon leading us to our seats, a server walked by and our hostess just left us there while having a quick chat and or arrangement but just felt that wasn’t very professional. All in all, the host is the face of the restaurant, and we’ve had better experiences at Earls…..which isn’t what we expected from black and blue. Or maybe that’s the style. Our server: Lisa was great! This won’t be long but doesn’t mean she isn’t good, it’s just she so good that there is no need to use so many adjectives to rave about her. But most importantly, it was her sincerity and attention to detail that made us felt so welcomed. We ordered the Dine Out menu which in general isn’t very appealing to servers because it’s so lowly priced so may affect overall check price and hence tip, but Lisa did not made us feel unwelcome at all! Even though tables started filling up around us and she was serving them all, she still always had time to made us feel wanted.More

Unfortunately we tried to dine on the roof top patio but couldnt get a table. The restaurant itself is very nice, but I've heard the rooftop is very special.
