My wife brought me to this restaurant last night for my birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience, the staff was very attentive and the cuisine very satisfying, We will definitely be returning and will ccheck out the roof on the next visit :)

I visited Vancouver for business in August and dined with a group of colleagues in a private nook. We started with drinks on the rooftop which was good fun and then descended to the restaurant. The service was warm and attentive and 5 he food was good, not quite as good as I expected, but solid. I shared a rib... More

I think what makes my experience even more terrible is that it was my birthday. I should have known it was going to be terrible when I tried to make a reservation. The only available times were 5:15pm or 9:30pm. I booked 3 days ahead of time!!! So I had to choose 9:30pm. We get there and were seated at... More

Wow! What a great time and wonderful experience! We were four people and sat in a booth on the upper level. The service and management was fantastic. Our server Jenka was in the middle of making a Caesar salad for another table when we arrived, but took the time to lean over and let us know she would be right... More

Rarely do restaurants leave that indelible mark on your day. Be it great food, or in my case completely rude and incompetent service. Black and Blue certainly lived down to one of the worse restaurant experiences I have ever had. My wife and I frequented this establishment for brunch. We asked for a table in the shade on the patio.... More

We have been to Black and Blue in the past and were very impressed, tonight was a total disappointment. We there for my birthday, and I hadn't eaten much on purpose awaiting a wonderful meal. The service was ok, but certainly unfriendly, we ordered appetizers,they were ok! I ordered surf and turf,which was awful, the whole meal was cold, steak... More

This downtown Vancouver showpiece has real class, stylish clients, and the roof garden dining is fantastic. The food is very good, and the staff courteous. We had one problem with an oyster shortage (they ran out), and the manager sent staff next door to a sister restaurant and delivered them a little late, then comp'd them to us for the... More

Went to the patio for drinks and the drinking menu is impressive. The atmosphere is quite nice but the food was okay. Some items are pricier than average and some were average like their mussels. The upstairs patio is worth a visit even if it is just for drinks.
