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.

I’ve been here a few times, and generally it was quite satisfying. This time, however, it Was disappointing. We Came here for a birthday and the fire alarms were going off the entire night. It was impossible to talk, and nobody gave us any notice beforehand. A steak we ordered “ black and blue”, came back medium; when this is the name of the restaurant, it seems reasonable to expect that they can cook this properly. Fortunately after a few attempts to bring out a “blue” steak it was taken off the bill. Still, upwards of $200 for that experience...was hoping more of the meal would be discounted to make up for this experience. But we were not inclined to complain and make a fuss.

It’s a great restaurant, warm & cozy, classy and we loved the food a lot. Except the fire alarm kept going off and became very annoying and distracting. Anyways, overall will still definitely recommend.

Our first dining experience at Black and Blue was to celebrate a birthday and anniversary. The staff and service was phenomenal! They went out of their way to make our evening special with excellent food, friendly staff and attentive service. We highly recommend Black and Blue for any special occasion or just a great evening out. The Wagyu Carpaccio and shared platter were delicious. Thanks Black and Blue!

Overall a disappointment, the rib-eye we ordered had quite a few burns that tasted bitters. The foie gras doesn't taste fresh, and the desserts we ordered were terrible, didn't even finish it. The cheesecake tasted as if it was pull out of a convenience store's fridge; we also tried the banana foster which proven to be a mistake, the presentation of the final product was a mess.
it definitely did not live up to our expectation.

We found dirt on their salad. Then, we inform the waiters and they took the plates away and nobody returned to say anything about it. Finally, we asked the manager to come over and who we got is a guy who said that our complaints were insulting him and he did not apologize at all. He walked back and forth couple times and eventually apologized to us saying that it was their mistake. Ruined my evening.

Service was outstanding. Bar manager, Steph and our server, Emily were fabulous. The main meal - chateaubriand for 2 - was very disappointing. It was a very long wait for food - at least an hour - and when we finally received our meal, the steak was over cooked and everything was cold. Very sub-par vs our other experiences at Black & Blue.

So very impressed! Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and had a great sense of humor! The bone marrow was delicious (my hubby insisted that I try it and am glad I listened to him {this time!}), we shared the generous ribeye (a perfect medium rare), and enjoyed the mushroom and Macncheese sticks as sides. If you like garlic then the cesear is a good choice 'cause you'll taste it for hours. Good people watching (way too much disposable $) and great wine list. Only disappointment was the butter cake - quite ordinary for the hype it was meant to be.

We were celebrating a birthday and Black and Blue came highly recommended by Trip Advisor. We were very please with the meal, the quiet corner we were seated in and our very attentive server Ashleigh. The Meat and Seafood platter we order was absolutely delicious, the steak was done to perfection, the seafood delicious and the harvest seasonal vegetables…I couldn't get enough of them. Ashleigh made our dining experience wonderful with her keen attention, sense of humour and she even surprised my guest with a birthday dessert. We would definitely come back to Black and Blue.
