Black & Blue Steakhouse
Met a friend for Friday lunch.Met a friend for Friday lunch. The burger and beer special was delicious and an outstanding value. Odd for this caliber of restaurant but no mug was provided for the beer so drank it from the bottle. Not the end of the world and was probably the environmental way. Table service was very efficient and friendly.
Cowboy nachos sounded great but was extremely overpriced for what you received. Small stack of chips with little toppings but sitting on a very tasty sauce.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood was great, patio on aGood was great, patio on a nice evening made for a memorable night .6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ExperienceThis was our first time here, and we really enjoyed the experience. The wait staff was very friendly. The restaurant was out of the wine my husband requested, but our waiter was able to recommend a very good alternative. It's always nice when the wait staff has knowledge about the wines offered. The Caesar salad was amazing. We had the chateaubriand and it was very good. The ambience is nice. My only complaint is that the music was a little loud, but nothing we couldn't talk over.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDiscerning dinersImpeccable service, beautiful ingredients handled with utmost respect resulted in a wonderful celebration dinner in a gorgeous bustling venue. Friendly, helpful staff and an impressive wine list. Dessert and espresso ended a fabulous meal! I will definitely be back!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion hot spotMy first time at B&B " The Roof " It was an out of town guest slash girls spa day slash evening bash for us. We found the food exceptional, the service was great which made our experience at this resturaunt awesome. I will surely be visiting this resturaunt for future events. Birthdays, anniversary , girls night out, etc. Surely a gem in our beautiful city.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentMore than holds its own against hy's, Morton's and Ruth Chris . Service was excellent but not intrusive. Steaks well prepared and tasty. Food was piping hot. No complaints but very pricey!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat roof top diningWe went for drinks and applies after work. Great atmosphere and the food was amazing especially the shrimp.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak...Took a long timeI arrived at the restaurant on time and was seated out front on the patio which was great. I sat there with my menu, now closed, for about 10 minutes with no water or any waitstaff acknowledging that I was there, even though several passed. Finally, a manager passed by and I asked if I could order. He looked a little surprised and took my order. The food was great-had the bone-in ribeye which was perfectly grilled. Took a while to finally get the check, but that finally came from another manager. Never got to speak to anyone on the waitstaff. Great food vs. pretty poor service. You decide!!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, wine and superGreat food, wine and super for important people watching. One of Vancouver's newest chic places to enjoy good food and spirits.
Very New York or Chicago. Best roof top bar restaurant in the city as well as a great place to do business deals.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food, Small TablesThe food was excellent, we enjoyed the steaks, the sides, and the sauces. The service was good but our waitress was a little busy at times.
However, the tables were tiny. My wife and I are of average height and slender build but were almost knocking knees. The two dinner plates and three side dishes barely fit on the table. We were there for a special occasion and I asked for a nice table but it didn't happen. They had many empty booths but saved them for groups of 3+. Other than the tight spaces, the meal was exceelent.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingI was blown away by the service, food, and overall feel of the place. Would definately go again. Once I can afford it though.. The food is worth the price though.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceServer was great, food was awesome especially for the banana split dessert. Loved the ambience. Would definitely recommend checking out this restaurant.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was Perfect! ThankEverything was Perfect! Thank you so much! The service and food was AMAZING! Thank you again!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe went here for our anniversary dinner and noted just "anniversary dinner" in the special notes section. We were surprised that everyone there greeted us with a "Happy Anniversary!". Our server was Laura M and she was absolutely spectacular! Such a joy to have around and definitely made our experience there that much better. Give that one a RAISE!!!
Our food was awesome as to be expected, we started with the beef carpaccio, she had the tenderloin and I had the rib eye steak. Finally, they sent us a complimentary dessert with Happy Anniversary written on it.
Great experience, go there for great food and wonderful staff.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service!What a memorable evening we had at Black and Blue. The service was exceptional. We mentioned we were there to celebrate our son getting 100 percent in a maths test and at the end of the meal they gave us a dessert to share with "congratulations" written on the plate! The food was also delicious. All in all a wonderful evening and I would highly recommend this restaurant :)5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner delicious & service greatThe servers were attentive without being obtrusive. We shared the beef tenderloin carpaccio and the chateaubriand. They were both delicious. The tenderloin was cooked perfectly. The veggies are what one might call on the firm side of al dente. Fortunately we like our veggies that way. An appetizer and entree were enough so we didn't try any dessert.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayAlthough we have been here in the night and love it we were very pleasantly surprised with the lunch menu as well as the special menu put together for Mother's Day brunch...an all round great dining experiece.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRoof Top PatioI don't and will not go anywhere else besides B + B when looking for a restaurant to visit. This is the only place to be at in my books. The manager & staff here make my every visit a special one.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for a friend's 40th bday LunchI asked for a table on the Alberni-side of the rooftop in the special request section of your booking. When we got there, they informed us that the Roof was a first-come first serve seating. There was no warning on your site about this restriction-unlike the Keg Yaletown bookings. Anyhow, when we explained the situation to one of the managers, Jenna, she took care of us! The food was great and Sahara was a great server for us. It made for a memorable 40th bday lunch!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat on all frontsSitting upstairs for a date was excellent. From food to service it was top notch. Highly recommend.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAsk to be seated upstairs- exceptional quality food, the sauses are on the salty side - food is served very fast so don't get the cocktails before your meal - you'll end up having your steak with a martini- very friendly waiters who have good advice- ask to be seated upstairs when booking (unless you want a patio in the summer), otherwise you might end up in a dark corner, behind the elevator and won't even see the grandeur of the restaurant itself5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFarewell setting very good,We were celebrating one of our co-workers they gave us a space for 8 of us. Great service and the Burger meat was fresh and well done. We will come back for sure!
They have a 1.7 million dollar patio but they do not serve the special prices there! Tricky part because in Vancouver everyone likes a patio with sunshine in a good weather like this May summer time. Thank you!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMArturo & Custom Drinks Cart Rocks!Ask the staff to send Arturo around for tableside cocktail service - made our night !5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeef DipThe quality of the Beef Dip is not as great as before :(5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us for lunch - eachFour of us for lunch - each one of us thoroughly enjoyed our different dishes. My tenderloin was absolutely melt-in-your-mouth fabulous. I was hesitant to have steak for lunch, but just had to try it and am glad I did. Then the 20-layer chocolate cake for dessert (shared, thank goodness) was spectacular. Will definitely go again!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch on the PatioThe server was attentive and knowledgeable. the food was good, but not really exceptional.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBottom line, great steaksBottom line, great steaks and accompaniments. Loved the Brussels sprouts. Everyone was engaging and personable. Look forward to going back next time in town.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible steak food and service!The restaurant is beautiful the food is excellent service great ambience fantastic. One of the best steak house restaurants in Vancouver. Although they have other great dishes for seafood lovers! They have two private rooms that are fantastic. The new rooftop is incredible! Definitely one of Vancouver's best restaurants!2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI wanted 7pm but only 6:45pmI wanted 7pm but only 6:45pm and 7:15pm was available on Open Table. When I arrived at 7pm the restaurant was only half full and it stayed that way. Not sure why times were restricted like this.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceAll of the Global group restaurants know exactly how to make you feel welcome and treated like a king/ queen.
Great cocktails, great food, great value!1/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food; Medicore serviceThe food was amazing!!! The vibe is very cool and hip. Some of the older members of our group had a hard time reading the menu in the light (or lack there of). Our server was friendly and well spoken, however she only came to our table 3 times during the entire meal. Our drinks sat empty until we flagged someone down, and the bar then took an exceptionally long time to make them. For the price of the food, I expected the service to be more high-end and attentive. I do have to highlight the fact that when I booked the reservation, I had mentioned that it was a celebratory dinner for my boss, and Black & Blue went above and beyond and provided him with a lovely dessert to celebrate. Really top notch!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
