We were put in a tiny corridor by the window, it felt as if we were in a railway carriage, as the area is no more than 6 ft wide, and it was cold (even though we booked). I think to appreciate the atmosphere of this place, you have to be in the main area. Ask for this when you... More

Great restaurant for food, service and ambiance, very reasonable priced, great wine selection although some will put you in the poor house. For that extra special service ask for Tahara she was great. Thanks also to manager Keon maybe the evening very enjoyable.

Seated on the rooftop surrounded by walls of fire, their tent provided protection from the wind & rain while still allowing the feel of an outdoor patio. Cozy & romantic, the meal was incredibly delicious, beef carpaccio & meatballs for apps were spot on. Three of us shared a 60oz cut with a variety of sides. Brussel sprouts were to... More

Best beef my wife and I have ever had anywhere in the world. Service is first rate, friendly, informative, not over bearing. If you have a woman or a man you're trying to impress, this is the place!

My husband and I decided on Black & Blue to celebrate our birthdays as they are so close together. We were seated upstairs which was quiet and romantic. Our server was Emily and she was simply lovely. She was very knowledgeable with the perfect amount of helpfulness without being intrusive. The signature cocktails were fantastic. We started with beef carpaccio... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple times in the past month. The food is consistently good and I recommend the lamb and steak salads. They are trying their best with the service but their lunch staff are young and lacking experience. I will say that the managers are working on it and take extra measures to look after... More

Horrible, horrible, horrible!!! It was my mom's birthday and we reserved a table for 8:30pm. The ladies in the front were friendly and told us that it'll just be a while longer. We waited for a good 30 minutes until they sent us up stairs and said that my table was "ready". Got up stairs and the girl gave us... More

The atmosphere is the restaurant was amazing: fires blazing everywhere in the rooftop location. We ordered from the downstairs menu. The food was outstanding and the prices were reasonable for the quality of food served. Service was excellent.

A couple of friends and I decided to have a nice steak dinner, and were not only surprised by the great food, but the amazing service. Our server (Ms. Tahara Morgan) was 'top notch', and made our experience unforgettable.

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

Neighbourhood 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.
