We had visited Gotham for cocktails several years ago, and we promised ourselves that we would dine there the next time we were in Vancouver. COVID kept us away longer than we expected, but It was well worth the wait. Our reservation was at 5:00...PM when happy hour is really rolling, so the music volume was pretty loud on the main floor. We requested a booth on the second floor that proved to be quieter. David, our server, was superb. When we mentioned the portions seemed large, he suggested ordering several half orders instead. We split the mixed green salad, Portobello fries, and seasonal vegetables. I had the 10 oz. bone-in veal chop and my husband had the 6 oz. filet. Both were perfectly prepared. David's wine suggestions were excellent pairings. Service was efficient without hovering. This is a pricey white table cloth place and we felt our experience was worth every penny. We will be back.More

First off, server to server, James was absolutely AMAZING. He introduced my new favourite Pinot Noir to pair with our amazing Wagyu/Steak and lobster dinner. One thing I must add, I got the cheese toast as an "easy Appy". There's nothing easy about it... This...cheese toast was immaculately balanced. Perfect cheese, perfect bread.. I couldn't believe our applies were that amazing, let alone our main event. All around 10/10 from everyone. Both front of house and back of house staff knocked it out of the park. And to put the cherry on top, we got the best table in house. Thank you Gotham! We will be back!!More

We enjoyed our experience at Gotham with a nice dining atmosphere and great service. The reason for the average review is we had a good steak but not at all matching the incredibly steep prices. We went for steak again the next night and enjoyed...it more and paid half the price tag.More

Old steakhouse charm with classy touches. Beautiful bar area. Excellent classic guitar player with music heard throughout. We sat in a both upstairs and we felt it was a very private dining experience. We have high expectations on food and service and this is what...you get. You also pay for it as it is pricey We had martinis that were perfect and the lox appetizer which is tasty, ask for butter and their bread toast to go with it. Small portion but good for two. We had Tortoise Creek Cab so not one of the pricier wines but it matched well and was tasty with the steak with was an awesome 24 oz porterhouse cooked to perfection at med to med rare that we split (really nice that you can feel Comfortable doing that here). Also you can ask for half portions of most of the sides. Cream spinach was ok but preferred the cauliflower gratin. Service was impeccable! Very friendly staff and knowledgeable about the menu. It was a $400 experience all in for us and we truly enjoyed it to the max. Highly recommend and would go again our next visit to VancouverMore

Definitely come here 3-5pm. Nice patio option or inside the lounge if no room outside. Music background was upbeat but not loud. Several happy hour food and drinks specials from their lounge menu. Great service, you felt well taken care of. I came twice with...different people in one week. We enjoyed their thick beef burger, portbello mushroom fries, steak sandwich and beef frisket sliders. All items were very good and good portion size.More

Some of the finest steaks I've ever enjoyed. The bone-in Ribeye and filet were epic. If you read nothing more in this review, know that the steak was fantastic. And I LOVE steak. Ok...so the room is beautiful. Very classy and upscale without excess pretense....Our server David was a total pro. But props really must be given to the whole staff. No dirty plates or empty glasses lingered on our table. The service was special and approached Michelin star levels. I was a little worried at the start as the apps were so-so. The opening cocktail, cheesy bread and garlic shrimp did not bring down the house. And at these prices, you're expecting fireworks. But the meal took an epic turn for the better with the Caesar salad (one of the best I've tried), the steaks and the well prepared and memorable sides. Plus any place that serves Key Lime Pie for dessert will generally get my vote. Gotham is eye-watering expensive. But for special occasions I cannot imagine anyplace better. We will return.More

An end of trip steak dinner, but the results were less than great, the steak was so-so for the price as was the service. Not worth the Uber trip from the airport and return, We had high expectations but were disappointed. oh well...

Impeccable service dark classy interior. A special occasion place like the great Montreal Steak places (Moishe's etc) Got better steak and service than Barberian's in Toronto. Like Hy's this is high end and worth it. Server was incredible gave us great recommendations. Had A5 Wagyu...for two to start it was magical unicorn meat we were in heaven! Cheese toast ate two baskets crazy good. One Sazerac and one girly drink were perfect. Bacon wrapped filet with baked potato, forest mushrooms perfectly cooked med rare with bearnaise. One NY strip cooked med well with pepper corn gravy. Best crust I have seen on a steak for years! Gravy was more of a light sauce than Escoffier traditional really lovely. One 20 yr old calvados not a great brand and not their fault prefer Dupont. Insanely good Key Lime pie with pressed sugar graham crust with chantilly cream. Musician was crazy good played fabulous guitar solos. Vancouver you have a world class gem here equal to the best steakhouses get out and try it; leave the avocado toast behind for a classy evening! Epic night for a Toronto visitor.More

We were staying next door to Gotham and wanted to go to the bar. When we arrived we were told probably a 30-40 minute wait. I asked if there was a waiting list - was told NO. There are no places in the lobby area...to sit and wait. I have a bad knee and then asked if we could call to find out since they don't maintain a waiting list. Was told I could check back in 30 minutes. We called and then told maybe another 30minutes and then called again and told perhaps an hour wait. Seems ridiculous that they can't have a waiting list or beeper system like Olive Garden.More

Best cheese bread in town along with a great variety of red meat cuts! Plenty of fish dishes to please you as well. Wish they still had the traditional wedge salad but if you ask for it, they will whip it up for you!
