We made lunch and dinner trips to B&B, sitting on the first floor and then on 'The Roof' a great terrace surrounded by warming fires and cover if needed from the early Spring rains in Vancouver. We tried tenderloin, porterhouse and Kobe beef. My son was given a tour of the 'cold store' displaying the finest cuts in the centre... More

Very cool high street location. Hermes is at the end of the block. The room is very large, airy, hip and modern. Its fun to sit at the large centrally located bar where you can see everyone dining on both levels. The meat heavy menu is very tasty. Our group of 6 had one thing in common: we all reported... More

I went to Black & Blue with my g/f and a friend. This was my third visit to B&B. The first visit was excellent. The service needed improvement for my second visit. I had requested Igor to be the server at our table as he provided flawless service the first time I attended. We arrived and were immediately greeted by... More

I’ve been to Black + Blue a number of times and have always recommended it to others; however, I can no longer say I’d recommend going there. With the gorgeous weather over the weekend, it was the perfect setting to enjoy appies and drinks on a nice patio. We sat upstairs at “The Roof” which is the patio of Black... More

I'd like to point out a great, personable bartender who always makes us feel welcome and well-cared for. Check out Garett Graeme. He truly goes the extra mile in terms of service and personality. He gets my vote as best in the city and keeps us happily coming back.

I've dined here several times but never brought my kids. The food on the kids menu looked great and they actually finished their plates for once. As always, the service was friendly, but professional. The adults' food was outstanding; excellent quality and perfectly prepared. Nice wine list, too. The room is sleek and the atmosphere is sexy, but we sat... More

We had a lovely enough table upstairs. A little corner all to ourselves and 2 friends by the window. That was nice. The food was not exceptional and for the price I expect attention to fine details. Details like who ordered what when the staff brings out the food. Service was cool and rushed. Maybe because it was obvious at... More

My boyfriend and I went here for date night. We had the pleasure of being served by Chris who knew everything on the menu. He knew how to describe steak like no one other - and provided a fun dining experience. Mark the mixologist made me such a delicious cocktail - just tell him exactly what you want and he... More

My wife and I typically go to black and blue about once a month. If you can get on the second floor it makes all the difference! The atmosphere is great up there. The servers are excellent but none more so than Rio. If you get Rio as your server the night will be just that much better!
