Black & Blue Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Had a 9:15 reservation. Seated at bar to wait. 40- minutes later, still not seated. Apparently, host station mixed up names. Manager accommodating, taking care of the drinks at bar. When finally seated, food and service were excellent. Definitely recommend!
I was here a couple years ago during a business outing and the food/service was outstanding to say the least. This time around was a different experience unfortunately. The lights for starters above our table were burnt out so for a couple in outlr mid 40’s with less than perfect eyes had a hard time reading the menus and had to breakout the iphone lights. We did our homework on the menu days prior to our night out and had decided that we wanted to experience the “Tomahwk” only to find out that they just sold the last one 5 minutes ago..........so we ordered the Porterhouse (medium rare) and it came (rare) now we should of maybe said something at this point but our waitress had it all cut up and on our table along with our sides so we just ate it as it would of been a whole thing sending it back........ the sides that we ordered however were good, mushrooms and Brussel Sprouts.
We were excited to check out this restaurant. Arrived and were asked if we wanted to go to the rooftop or stay on the main floor restaurant. We choose the rooftop. Great ambiance & service. The tables were small and close but we did like being seated by the beautiful huge fireplace. The menu was limited and somewhat confusing, and It was physically very large & awkward took up most of the table. Maccaroni & Cheese appetizer was good but not mind blowing, we also had a Brie cheese and nut dip with bread, but they only gave you three small pieces of bread to go with it. My husband ordered the beef tenderloin and it came with a small amount of smoked potatoes salad. Salad was extra? He ordered it medium rare and it came very rare. I ordered kebab with prawns, lobster, and filet, was charged 2$ extra to substitute a green salad for the potato one and it was soggy & bitter. The steak was ordered medium and it came a medium rare. It may sound odd but it was difficult to chew, very slippery. We could have sent it but honestly just wanted to experience the restaurant as is. The lobster seemed over cooked , the prawns and both seafood was on the rubbery side. It’s not that the food was inedible, but for the price I was expecting to be blown away. Very little spice or flavour I feel we could have cooked it better ourselves at home. Although the ambiance was awesome the food quality was just not there. I left almost all of my steak and the waitress did not notice nor mention it. My husband did as well and usually we are clean the plate kind of people. Perhaps the downstairs restaurant may have had a better menu kitchen, but other than just drinks we would not return to this restaurant.
Stunning restaurant and the appies were incredible. However, my husband ordered the ribeye.... JUST the ribeye was $70. Nothing else included. He said it was chewy and very bland.
My steak Diane was ok. I've had better. The filet was literally two little scraps of meat. I added a lobster tail and it would have been so much better if it was just steamed. It was in a very rich sauce which totally took away any and all flavor of the naturally sweet lobster.
All in all, we wouldn't go back.... not for those prices.
After placing my reservation 5 days before the actual date, I was very disappointed to find my date and I sitting at a tiny table right next to the bar. This usually isn't a big deal to me but it was a special occasion for me and my date and we could barely fit our shared platter on the table. On another note the people sitting at the bar were extremely voicestress. This made for an unpleasant start to my first experience at Black and Blue. After 3 other tables complained, the people from the bar were asked to leave and everyone was very greatful. The only other comment I will make is that the service was not up to par for a $375 dollar meal for 2 people. By midway through the night we had a second server/manager assisting our first server because she was never to be seen. Overall a very satisfactory first experience at Black and Blue :(
I decided to take my wife here for her Birthday before we went to watch Motown. This was our first time here. What an absolute treat!
Our server Marecel was a true pro. He took such good care of us. His explainations of the different cuts of steak and recommendations were spot on.
We had oysters and wagyu beef carpaccio to start, both of which were insanely good.
For mains we chose Beef tenderloin. Our sides were french fries and roasted carrots. The roasted heirloom carrots were out of this world. I could have made a meal out of them alone. The peppercorn sauce was the perfect compliment to our steaks. Perfectly cooked and fantastic flavors!
This was hands down one of the best meals Ive had in Vancouver.
The bar also looked like a great place to hangout and have some apps after work or with friends.
Thank you again Marcel and the staff or Black & Blue. We will be back!
we ate here once before and it was amazing. Love the happy hour entree specials and inexpensive drinks.
We decided to go back on "dine out Vancouver" $40 per plate special. Quality of the steak was poor. but I have to say Service was amazing.
Participating in Dine out Vancouver did not do this restaurant any justice to show case quality.
I will go back again but not if it is a $40 plate special....
Positive: The food was excellent! The chef has done a great job.
Negative: The service was terrible:
- waitress was noticeably sales-oriented, trying to push the most expensive menu options;
- waitress was careless while preparing caesar salad, aggressively stirring the dressing and claiming that I was in the "splash zone";
- waitress constantly reached over us to re-fill waters in a very indiscreet, clumsy manner
- my red wine arrived after I was half finished my steak; I asked a bus person to follow-up and I simply received an empty wine glass
- the women's restroom was disgraceful: majority of toilets were not flushed/clogged, no drying towels, basket with used towels was overflowing (I informed staff of the problem and waitress blamed patrons for the mess) - the second time using the restroom after 2 hours there was still no improvement! Staff should do a better job ensuring that the restroom is cleaned and stocked.
Unfortunately from these negative experiences, I won't return to or recommend Black & Blue. The service issues and disgusting restroom are unacceptable for a high-end restaurant in my opinion.
It was a disappointing experience. Understand this is dine out event and can't expect much. The dine out last year was so good that we wanted to celebrate my daughter's birthday here this year. The striploin was pretty tasteless. Luckily we added on top of the dine out menu the beef capacio and the Mac n Cheese stick to add some good flare to the meal.....Noticed some servers were more engaging and ours hardly engage with us at all. The lady who walked us to the table was fairly engaging and she found out it was my daughter's birthday...yet she didn't really respond to that nor any staff try to make any effort to make the experience a bit special. The manager went around the tables quickly to check if everything was ok(not everything was great....) I supposed it'd be much better on a regular day/evening or weekend
This is the third poor dinner at Black & Blue in a row so there won't be fourth. We arrived early for our reservation and there was not one table occupied in the restaurant when we arrived. The hostess tried to seat us at an undesirable table in the front window hidden in the corner. No chance. She reacted rudely when we asked to sit somewhere in the main dining room given every table was empty. The ambience was poor as the lights over our table flickered all night which made it hard to read the menus and was very distracting if not comical throughout our dinner. We ordered the nachos as an appetizer, which I did not have, however my wife did and has been sick the last three days. She was suffering within 2 hours of leaving the restaurant and still is two full days later. Our last trip to B&B, the bartender was doing shots with his three buddies like we were eating in a frat house. For a place serving $70 steaks and $30/ounce for Wagyu, the hostesses shouldn't project attitude, the lights shouldn't flicker and guests shouldn't get sick.
We went to black and blue for dine out. I had been there before and the food was great so I was really looking forward to a great value steak. The starter and desert were very tastey however the main course was a bit disappointing. We ordered the steak ans potatoe gratin. I am a huge potatoe gratin fan but this one unfortunately did not live up to my expectations. I would normally imagine potatoe gratin to be creamy, however this was deep Fried and rather dry. I believe this would have been nicer if it wasn't deep fried. Regarding the steak we weren't never asked how we wanted our steak done. It came out medium which was perfect for me however I imagine would not be ideal for every pallet. The steak was quite fatty and it was not the best steak I have eaten. I believe that if we had paid full price we would have had a much higher quality steak which the dine out menu did not provide. Overall i had a enjoyable experience ans would definatelt go back for food. The place itself is lovely and alll the other times I've been there the food has been great! This is good review and I would recommend the place just not for dine out.
This experience was not up to par.
We were disappointed by the roof top patio, very noisy and not the lovely ambiance that I have come to love from the main restaurant .
Our waitress,bless her ,was over run on her feet and was not very attentive .
The food,was less than mediocre .
We had ordered the top sirloin , mine was chewy and very a poor cut of meat. The potato patty ontop was dried out and my dining partners was actually burnt on the bottom.
The best part was the 3 pepper slices ( only 3) in the middle of our layered meal..
Desert was good, but was disappointed there was not another option. All in all, very disappointed as I had built up this spot to my friend of how awesome black and blue was.
Sadly, will most likely not go back.
I love the wide selection of steak menu with a variety of accompaniments and sides. The ambiance is relax and chill by the bar but the same attention you get from your server in the regular table, I've dined in this restaurant numerous times and I'm always happy either I'm dining in the rooftop in the summer to the main dining room in the winter with my friends and family.
We made a reservation for birthday occasion two weeks in advance. The night started horribly. When arrived we got seated to a table literally just by the front door, one of the seat was right beside the service table where all the water jugs were. The spot had constant cold breeze blowing behind you. We asked for a different spot and got a response "we are all booked up tonight, you will need to wait for that". Didn't I book a table too? Isn't that why people call in advance to make reservation, especially for a special occasion? However, our server at the table who was very helpful and observant that he noticed our disappointment. He was able to get us a nicer spot upstairs (pretty much slap the person's face who told us it's all booked up). Our night got better after moved to a more private spot also the server she was fanatic and friendly. Food was really good.
Food was great.
However, service was very poor.
Our server left the bill on our table in same time with serving our dessert.
We did NOT ask her to give us the bill.
We felt she wanted to kick us out, so we ate the dessert quickly, then went to another restaurant to drink another glass of wine.
It was really disappointing service!
We do not appreciate such a bad service.
