Delicious Chateaubriand

Chateaubriand for two included the most superb and tasty beef you could have, cooked to perfection, and delicious bernaise. I would love to award 5 stars but the "seasonal vegetables" were a tiny portion of legumes, not in the slightest appealing- generally you expect a much nicer and colorful... read more

Our server Laura was absolutely wonderful. I cannot wait to go back. She did a wonderful job at being able to read our table, giving us the service we needed. Our food was delicious and the recommendations she made were right on! If you're in Vancouver it's a must stop.

I loved walking up the stairs to the top dining area, we could look down and watch the bar. Appealing lighting, warm and cozy. Drinks were a bit slow...food presentation was fabulous and tasty!

I've been to Black & Blue on many occasions. This is a great spot for a great steak, but on this visit, we simply enjoyed the view, the phenomenal weather, the great service, and a few burgers and brews on the roof top. A great afternoon by all accounts. I wouldn't change a thing.

We all fancied a steak one night, so visited this restaurant because it was so close to our hotel. We got seated on the terrace as requested despite it being a very busy evening. It isn't cheap but this is the first time all holiday that our plates were absolutely clean - the meal was so delicious - and the... More

My husband and I were enjoying a great day out in the city and decided to have lunch on the rooftop patio here. In the interest of full disclosure, I had a $50.00 gift certificate from the Glowbal group due to a disappointing lunch at Coast. (see my review of Coast) I was impressed that their marketing dep't followed up... More

Granted, we paid the price for it, but we were impressed! The tuscan onion soup were great too! My husband had a rib eye and was not... More

My girlfriend and I visited Black + Blue last year for Valentine's Day. It was our 1st time, and it was pretty bad. Entrees took so long that 1 dessert was going to be comped. Dessert took so long they gave both for free. Never wanted to go back. A few weeks ago for my birthday we wanted Beef Wellington... More

You got to have a drink at the Roof if you are visiting Vancouver. I would say they are one of the top five hip places to be in here. Make good use of their happy hour specials from 4 to 5:30 7 days a week. You save lots because drinks are $5 and selected appetizers are 50% off. The... More

We had a great time at Black + Blue. Great variety on the menu with prime cuts of meat available. Our server Manny was very polite and helpful and made our visit that much more enjoyable. We ordered the beef tenderloin for two and it was sliced right in front of us. I believe the gentlemen who sliced our steak... More
