Just okay, been here a few times. Service not as good as before - server might be new? Happy hours selection could use some changes, but good atmosphere.

Enjoyed our dining experience at Black and Blue immensely. Would recommend smaller portions and more non beef menu options - otherwise spectacular!

Extremely disappointed in the quality of our meals. My tenderloin was average at best and I needed to send one of the sides (mushrooms) back they were so bad.

The service was fantastic but the quality of food was terrible.

Mom in-law visiting from out of town. Thought it would be nice to take her somewhere.
40 minutes for our appetizers to arrive is completely unacceptable. 6 oysters and 3 soups.
When they finally came, I asked them to push out our entrees. Another 30 minutes (3 prime ribs).
Should have gone to the keg to be honest

Our servers attitude was set as soon as we opted for tap water over bottled. The meat was too chewy and there were tendons all through it. Everyone at the table felt like there experience was lack luster.

It was a very poor service. My reservation was at 9pm and my friend and I got a table at 9:40pm. The food was served after 10:40pm. Was starving, but was waiting for the waiter, as he was constantly avoiding us, even though i tried to call, waive and to make eye contact.

I highly recommend Emily for our server, she was very nice and accommodating, she gave us really helpful suggestions too, she even brought us back our umbrella outside because it was raining! She has excellent customer service skills and she was awesome! I would go back for the service that she gave us! It was my husband’s birthday and I wanted it to be special, we had a reservation and they seated us way at the back where the kitchen staff was, we were all dressed up and fancy only for our clothes to smell like steak and I could barely make a conversation withy husband then the waitress came and asked how we were doing I said I’m not okay because of our seats, I expected better ones since we drove all the way from seattle just to celebrate I’m vancouver, so the kind waitress talked to the hostess and they made it right for us. So all in all we had a good experience there thanks to Emily too and our first waitress who made it right for us!

We came for my Parentd 40th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately the restaurant had a large party arrive prior to us which lead to us being sat right by the kitchen.

The manager appologized to us for this and provided us with complimentary glasses of sparkling wine and an appetizer that was not on the menu.

The food was amazing and we had top notch service from our waitress. The evening was capped with the manager comp'ing our desserts.

We will definitely be back for more special occassions and hopefully will get to sit up on the 2nd level

Yesterday is my anniversary with my boyfriend, I booked the table one week before and left a comment about give my boyfriend a surprise(such as write happy anniversary in our plate or something), but when we go there, nothing happened. Even nobody noticed my comment?

I asked to seat a good table but the server let us seat on the second floor a tiny table. I know it is normal to seat with that tiny table for two people, but we ordered many food, it even cannot fit that tiny table:(

The food is good but no surprise as I comment before.

I think I won’t go twice.

Black & Blue is an exquisite fine dining establishment with legendary service and food that’s above and beyond. Right off the start we got seated in one of the best spots in the house even after arriving 45 minutes early. Our waiter Jeffery was a marvellous host and made excellent recommendations based on our requests. There was not one moment where I had to waive down a server, as Jeffery and the rest of the staff checked up on us multiple times throughout the 3hrs we were there. The taste of the food was magnificient, not to mention the presentation was aesthetically pleasing. The wine selection was heavenly and their best bottle can run you upwards of $11k. The atmosphere is extravagent accompanied by the luxurious layout, decor, lighting, and music. Our steep bills seemed modestly priced considering you are getting exactly what you paid for. This was not my first time here, and it definitely won’t be my last.

Having eaten at Black & Blue on several celebratory occasions previously, this was the most disappointing visit so far.
The service and pre-meal cocktails at the Bar were good as always but the problems started when we were sat at table upstairs by the front window - normally a great table.
The usual solid table in that spot had been replaced by something more wobbly and precarious more suited for a buffet settled. We also found ourselves surrounded by two tables of large noisy parties making even rudimentary conversation over dinner a challenge. Somehow B&B had managed to cram roughly 30 people into an area normally seated by 12? We were constanly jostled and shifted by various servers, toilet goers, door greeters, bus boys and salad and dessert carts (no, they really didn't fit between the tables but well done for trying...).
The food and steaks in particular were fabulous as always but really surprised B&B have adopted a cram 'em in approach to 'fine dining'?
If you want a noisy, cramped and uncomfortable dinner setting for your Party over the Xmas Holiday, this will be perfect - else maybe wait 'til the buffet tables have been taken out...

We have been to this restraunt 4 times now and have had a great meal every time. B&B has a much more up beat vibe than the traditional steak houses around Vancouver which I appreciate and the staff here has always been on point with its customer service.

The food was amazing but the service not so much. We were sat tucked away in the corner on the second level. (Basically a spot to just get money and not provide service). However the food was great which made up for the lack of an atmosphere.

We were there during dinner. The hottest was very friendly and lead us to our seat beside the windows. The server came and talked to us. The server was overall very friendly. However, our server didn't introduce the cuts or daily choices until we asked for it. We were first served with some water. My husband found a seems to be a dead bug in his water glass AFTER he finished his water. The glass was changed to a new one. No apologies from the management. We ordered three different appetizers to share. The first appetizer had a LIVE BUG on it!!!!!!!!! It was removed by another server. Again NO apologies from the management. Our server doesn't seem to be notified about the bug. No words from our server. The rest of the dinner was so so. For the price that they charge I would expect better service and at least NO BUGS! Just on the side note, before we left the restaurant, I saw a server using his UNWASHED hands picking up and putting olives onto the cocktail stick and putting them into someone's drink. Boy am I glad that's not our drink.

Service was excellent especially the server. She was so real as aperson relating to us and giving us good recommendations. Ambience was exceptional as usual and the temporary dry weather made the night perfect ( which you can't control, haha). The beef tenderloin could not have been better, juicy and tender as medium rare. Thank you for providing us a special night.

Overall, I felt a little disappointed. When we arrived for our reservation, we were given the option to go to the restaurant on the roof. The hostess really pushed for us to go up there, but didn't tell us that it was a more casual vibe up there, and that the menu was different. This was a birthday dinner, so when we got up there, we decided we would rather be in the Blue and Blue restaurant, rather than The Roof. When we went back downstairs, they told us that they were all booked and couldn't seat us for our original reservation. One woman, who I believe to be a manager, ended up helping us, but we didn't get a table until about 30 minutes after our original reservation time.

Amazing❣️ From the beginning to the end of my dining experience at Black & Blue was just perfect! Food was amazing. All the staff were very professional & amazing. The interior design of this restaurant was amazing. I was so sad that I didn’t have enough time for my favorite dessert that night. Will be back again. I also like the fact that it’s part of the Glowbal group. I often have good experience at Trattoria Burnaby & Nosh cafe. They introduced me to the Black and Blue. Thank you for an amazing evening❣️

Black and Blue was truly a great experience. They are famous for their steaks but have a wide variety of other menu items if steaks are not your thing. We ordered two prime ribs and they were prepared exactly as requested and are an excellent value. Service was amazing. Friendly but not intruding. When we were seated, they were aware of the special occasion that I noted down on Open Table. They made my anniversary feel special and definitely memorable. Unquestionably will go back for special occasions.
