Best steaks in Vancouver?

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... read 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.

Once a year Vancouver restaurants have an even called Dine Out Vancouver where many restaurants offer a fixed price menu to give extra exposure to the restaurant and to attract new clientele. Each year we try a few that we have heard about but have never been to for dining. This year our choice was Black and Blue. We had... More

I took my family for my son's birthday there. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed as my steak came first too rare and the meat was not eatable at all. I told our server and she took it back to change it for me. My family already finished their food when my burned steak came back for the second time which... More

Really good steak restaurant for Vancouver. Although they did not have a rib steak ( I like a steak with a bone( the New York striploin was delicious. My son had the roast beef and loved it. We had a fabulous waiter who made the meal that much more pleasant). He made our Caesar salad at the table-very good indeed.... More

Maitre D did well to fit us in - albeit on the roof top right next to the "firewall" - so it was very hot. Dine Out Vancouver was on and the $40 pp option read really well - so we went with that plus some sides for the main. OK wine by the glass selection and enomatic also available.... More

It was my second time visiting Black + Blue for dinner last night. The first time I went, was for my friends bridal dinner. We were on the rooftop patio which is probably nice in the summer, but it was in the fall so it was very dark and gloom. It was extremely busy so the level of service was... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood 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.
