Truly enjoyed our Dine Out experience at Black and Blue. The carpaccio was superb. Husband had short ribs off the bone and said it melted in his mouth. I had a taste and wish I had it, but enjoyed my rib eye steak. The vanilla crème brulee was wonderful. Can't wait to go there in the summer on the roof... More

Our Son is a carnivore and enjoys great meals, so we chose to reward his recent report card with a night out at a "high end" steak house. Well we were very disappointed to say the least. Starting with the service, to the Sommelier who took our recommendations down, yet brought a different wine....To the blatant respect for a table... More

There was an obvious line up when we got there around 7 pm and we (a party of 3) were offered a table on the rooftop. Being winter, we were not really sure about it. You have to go in an elevator to get there and low and behold the dining area up there was comfortable. Fireplaces everywhere and the... More

All I can say is WOW. From beginning to end this place was a disappointment, and not just because I went with high expectations that this establishment would live up to its price points, decor and reputation. Admittedly, we were there to enjoy the Dine Out Vancouver offerings, but I'm assuming their business model is to encourage new guests to... More

Hi Suzy. First, I would like to thank you for joining us for Dine Out Vancouver. I would also like to sincerely apologize for the events that took place during your dining experience. This is definitely not the Glowbal Restaurant Group standard and I apologize for the miss communication in regards to your drinks and food. We would like to... More

Amazing place with good vibe. We had a great time there. We only stopped for a drink and a snack. The people are very polite and professional. It is a good place for dinner with a lounge vibe. The only thing was my husband ordered a Moscow mule and it wasn't close at all. The bartender was very nice and... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere and ambiance; our server was very friendly, and not in that annoying artificial way like you get in a lot of restaurants around here. However, for a fine dining establishment in Vancouver, I did feel some of the items were lacking in quality -- at least for what you pay. For starters, my partner and I... More

Review for Dine Out 2017's dinner menu: (full review on the blog) Started off with the wagyu beef carpaccio which was the best part of the meal; the meat was soft and light and you could taste a distinct hint of olive oil. We also ordered the additional course of seared tuna with caviar which was small but enjoyable. For... More

Took advance of Dine out Vancouver $40/person for wagyu carpaccio, prawns, short ribs or cod and a creme brûlée with shortbread cookie. For $25 extra add Wine pairing with each meal. They have a wall of meat on the main level and good selection of music. Very busy worth making a reservation. Waitress was good even brought us a shot... More

Description
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
Downtown
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.
