We came to the restaurant without reservations and were pleasantly surprised to be quickly seated and at a very nice table on the second level, overlooking the entire restaurant, including their mouth-watering glass-walled meat cooler which was a great focal point. The whole restaurant is beautiful with beautiful wall hangings and chandeliers, privacy ensuring curtains in between booths, and a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience! Ribeye was cooked to perfection, the energy in the room was great and the ambiance without question is one of the nicest in the city! The Himalayan salt bricks behind the glass wall displaying their cuts of meat is an eye catcher and a conversation piece in and of itself! Service was fantastic! Look forward... More

Visited Black and Blue Rooftop. The service spectacular, the meal superb. The "monster" shrimp appetizer is to die for.. Coated in "something" that was delicious. Had an assorted platter for dinner, steak, shrimp, scallops, veggies, and barbecued brussel sprouts that were superb.

I dined at Black & Blue with my family for Dine out Vancouver. From start to finish the night was flawless! We were seated right away, our food came quickly, the drinks kept coming and I didn't have one complaint. There wasn't really anything that happened that made me say "man, that was soo special!" but all in all it... More

This is a relatively new restaurant. You can see that they are trying very hard but they are not quite there yet. A for effort, though. Given time, this could be one of the better restaurants in town. Almost worth the price but still very good. Props to the hostess who remembered my name on the way out on a... More

I was taken here for a special Birthday and the service we got was amazing. The waiter made sure I had the greatest experience ever. The food was amazing and would eat there over and over a gain. The wine selection was also as good so we were in heaven. Will go back.

Talk about a temple to Meat. This cool space has a Meat Fridge you can walk up and look through the window at all the different cuts. The staff are friendly and professional. Try the Caesar Salad made at your table side. The prime rib and the steaks are prepared to your liking. The desserts are tasty and the prices... More

There are many good things about this restaurant. We had a large group that reserved well in advance to eat upstairs on the indoor patio. We were excited to eat in a nice open area. When we arrived, there was a mix-up which they really never recovered from. Someone had given our table away and in it was very difficult... More

We tried the Black & Blue Dine Out menu, and it was very disappointing! My friend and I ordered steaks, and they were so fat! The whole steaks were like fat meat! We told them and they changed them to another ones. They just delivered the second ones in three minutes! It was so fast! However, the second ones didn't... More

Gorgeous rooftop patio and great for after work drinks, however, service leaves much to be desired. If you're going to an upscale steakhouse, you expect to at least have a Cactus Club level of service. Not so at Black + Blue. That being said, I still return again and again.

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
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.
