We were sent here by our realtor. We had a greatittlevtable secluded behind the elevator that led to an intimate dinner. Our Server Mona was wonderful, very pleasant and informative. The food was excellent, we had mussels, the escargot, beef tenderloin and the Brussel sprouts! It was all to die for! Thank for a memorable and wonderful evening!

When we first arrived, they have seated us by the window of the first floor, which all we see is the christmas trees from outside. I never been to this restaurant before, so my boyfriend asked them if we can move. So they seated us upstairs which I realize the restaurant is beautiful. The service here is very good especially...

Our preference is to sit at the bar especially when Mark is working. He is friendly and offers great recommendations and samplers from the kitchen. The scallops and mussels are two of my favourite appetizers. I do miss the Beef Wellington and the lobster gnocchi from the old menu. I understand that you can phone ahead to request the Wellington... More

We were seated promptly upon arrival. After seated we were given some explanations on the wine list, and the recommended wine was delicious. Manny, our server was funny and very personable. Although we only ate appetizers, the scallops and mussels were absolute amazing. The atmosphere was perfect for what we were looking for and we had an excellent dining experience.

One of our best experiences in a steakhouse. Our server Lloyd was extremely knowledgeable and gave us honest and non-pretentious recommendations. Steaks were cooked to the exact rareness (or wellness). We had the wagyu rib-eye and the "normal" rib-eye and both made its worth despite the dollars associated with wagyu. Brussel sprouts (recommended by Lloyd) was also surprisingly yummy, not... More

If you like a great steak - then Black and Blue is the place to go. Everything is top notch including service, at table desert preparation and most importantly the STEAK!

I preface my comments by providing a background for context not pretension. I have travelled to over 100 countries and dined in humble makeshift shelters in extreme conditions to the most opulent michelin rated restaurants in London and 7 star arabian hotels. I had a bad experience at Black and Blue in the past, however, I was hosting an appreciation... More

Wow what a meal! My friend and I ordered the Meat and Seafood platter and it was more than enough for two people. Everything from the sirloin to the lobster tail was cooked to perfection and those brussels sprouts are to die for (got them instead of the broccolini, highly recommend them)! Our server Chris Ludolf was just super! Very... More

Black and Blue was recommended on a recent visit to Vancouver. The quality of the steak was impressive.
