Love the decor,especially the wood panellings. The lighting is a wee bit too low, might make it difficult for people with low vision to move about without assistance. The menu is fairly extensive and the wine list quite adequate. Had the Porterhouse steak, which was served medium rare, as ordered. The other half had lamb, which was juicy and succulent. Tried local wines which we found a wee bit fruity and sweet but otherwise nice. The sides ordered were large portions. Ambience is formal/romantic, although casual dressing is not an issue. The live piano music is a very nice touch, and best enjoyed at the well-stocked bar. Will return soon!

We had no reservation but 4 of us got a table, two of us had steak which is supper yummy and two of us chose a seafood dish, The crab cakes are delicious as is the lobster bisque. We all had alcoholic beverages which were made with requested name brand alcohol. The heavy guy that waited on us wasn't very attentive and one of us waited a while to get a second drink. I can't say much about the deserts because only one of us had one, it was cheese cake ( real cheese cake, not the whipped cream foamy type or a gelatin one ) The prices are a bit higher, and the lighting and decor pleasing. It is a good place for a business lunch a romantic dinner or lunch or special occasion.

I visited Gotham for my girl friend's birthday dinner on 12th of October and we had a great time from enter to out of restaurant. We were arrived 20mins earlier than our reserv time. but The manager helped us and gave a really good table for us. The waiter was so helpful to suggest and recommend menu. The steaks were ablsoultely tasty and portion was good size. Actually we had some left. Appitizer was pretty descent. All staff were really kind and smile all the time. The most impressive memory at Gotham is I was request something special for G.F B-day dessert and asked her name and Happy Birht Day written on the plate then they really did what I asked when I make a reservation. That is really sweet event for us. I would like to say big thanks to all people of gotham.

As a visitor from Europe, every trip to North America warrants a steakhouse.

As always, the concept is fairly straightforward. Pick a cut of meat that you want and add a side order of vegetables, potatoes, sweetcorn or other accompaniments.

For the restaurant the rules are simple, source great meat and cook it to order on the grill. If you do both perfectly then you've pretty much nailed it. The remainder is service, starters, side orders and drinks.

At Gotham steakhouse I'd say they get top marks on the meat and the service (this is Canada after all!). Starters, which in our case was crab cake, was good but maybe could have been a bit more moist, a little dry to my liking. The side orders were plentiful and in fact we probably had too much food after the complementary garlic bread that was offered on arrival.

We helped it all down with a bottle of Okanagan valley red wine which had plenty of character without being to overpowering, a good match for our meat.

All in all hard to fault our night out. A tad overpriced? A bit too 'over the top'? Possibly, but I'm having to look for faults...
