Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We booked here as we were staying across the road at The Fairmont. It had some good write ups when I googled it . But OMG it was amazing far beyond the reviews . . The staff went through all the steaks possible , the...cooking methods etc . The wine guy was ace and definitely knew his stuff the pairings he did for our dinners were amazing . The food was definitely the best and they amended my dish to suit ( I don’t like mushrooms) but everything staff , food , drink , location , decor was amazing . The next time we went in was 10 days later for our anniversary and again the staff etc were brilliant. It was also our last night in Vancouver before returning to UK . But definitely be back thank you so much for making our holiday and nights special.More

As a career Diplomat who served all across the worls and at present serving as a Counsel General of Corp Diplomatique of British Columbia, it's my pleasure to extend assurances of my highest considerations to team Black & Blue for stellar services, in my humble...opinion its was a Michelin 3 Star experience. My personal compliments to Zoran an outstanding, positive, thoughtful and a professionally astute gentleman who looked after our meal. The gentleman was cognizant to customers needs and went above and beyond to make us comfortable and enjoy the experience. I also extend my felucitations to the Service Director Marcellin Fal for providing exceptional leadership. Very grateful to make the experience wholesome and satisfying. The food was made to perfection and the presentation was brilliant to this effect the kitchen and the Chef were brilliant.

Although pricey, the food is delicious and worth it! I've been here a few times. The steaks are delicious and come out cooked just right. The sides are excellent—the fried rice was off the charts. Service was great (aside from the greeting when we arrived),...but the rest of the meal was so good that it was no big deal! We thought a table by the window would be lovely; however, I would've preferred anywhere else. There was a large group of smokers who would go out to smoke, and you could smell it inside through the window. Overall, if you're looking for a delicious meal and a great steakhouse, you won't be disappointed.More

My friend took me out to the Roof for my birthday as that’s what we do every year. We got there in time for happy hour and had Zoran helping us. He was absolutely fantastic! From suggesting a great bottle of wine, to checking on...us regularly, to surprising me (as it was my birthday) with a glass of champagne and cake. He made a restaurant I already love an even better experience! Once we had left and were waiting for the elevator, he came again to thank us for coming by. I’ve been a regular customer of B&B for years but I’d say he has by far been the best server I’ve ever had. Cheers to Zoran!More
