I looked at a couple of reviews of Black & Blue and was expecting an okay steak dinner in a seafood town. Whoa! I was totally wrong on that account. This steak was one of the best I've had all year and I've pretty well eaten a side of beef getting there. We had no problem getting a good table,... More

I'll keep this short. I made the mistake of ordering a beer. I really should have ordered any of their red wines, but what I really wanted was a pint of Warsteiner. But they no longer carried Warsteiner, I was advised. I asked for something hoppy. What I received was one of the worst beers I have ever tasted. I... More

Had a very mediocre experience at Black & Blue recently, and won't be rushing back. It was my partner's birthday and we were hoping to make it special. But from the poor service from the inexperienced waitress, to the so-so food, it really showed that Black & Blue doesn't have its best game on anymore.

We enjoyed a good evening at Black & Blue. The Steaks were very good and the service was great. The rooftop lounge is also a good stop for a drink.

The interior design and sophisticated atmosphere are the best parts of coming here; you ride up a special glass elevator to the top floor, which is akin to an outdoor oasis in this concrete jungle. The lounge area has cozy seating with fireplaces, light music, and a view of the top of the city. Perfect for a girls’ chat over... More

The Roof at Black and Blue had the warmly lit, cozy, intimate atmosphere you crave during the drab fall/winter nights. Perfect for a date night! Our server Sarah was delightful and attentive. Will come back again soon.

A big thank you to Franck the wine steward....we had an unbelievable evening enjoying an amazing experience with our adult children. We were tucked in a corner table and every detail was taken care of from the beginning to the end of our visit.

The food was OK, steak was good. The server seemed to be over worked with too many tables, tableside prepared food and no backup from management. We tried to catch someone's attention from any staff but no Luck, my partner gave up on the fresh ground pepper and I need butter for potatoes. Unfortunately, No One came by to see... More

The attention to detail is evident from the moment we arrived for our anniversary dinner. The decor is sophisticated, very hip with a great vib. The central focus is an incredible light installation over the bar. The service was very attentive; there when you needed help, but not hovering. For starters, the Crispy Calamari with jalapeños mayo was outstanding! Some... More

The magic of a classic steakhouse, but with a decidedly contemporary twist. In-house aged rare cuts of beef, tableside Caesar salads, flambes, flaming coffees, and more. While he may find it familiar, it's definitely not your Daddy's steak house!

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
