Tried the steak (three of us shares the 32oz one), tasty. I ordered the ‘rose’ - kind of red wine, love this one!
Overall was good, but it’s a bit pricy.

First time at Gotham and I was impressed overall. Some things I would not do again? Order the $23. crab cake (yes, its just one, and mostly mayo and panko) and no, its not a generous size. The cheesecake did not taste like it was from the kitchen, but from a mass produced offsite bakery - it just tasted odd and did not have the dense, creamy texture that I associate with a high end treat. These were the only things that threw shade on an otherwise great night out.

But, order the bone in ribeye! Or the steak and lobster. To do so you will need to use the flashlight on your phone to help you read the menu, so be prepared. It is dark, and dimly lit. The old building looked good, was clean, and had a good atmosphere.

The sides were large and good enough for two people to share. The hash browns (no, not at all like Denny's) were an interesting pairing instead of the usual mashed potatoes, baked etc.. And the caesar salad was outstanding. The dressing was not out of a bottle and the taste of anchovy was unmistakable.

The wait staff was excellent and attentive, and she offered a terrific suggestion on a wine as a substitute as the one I had wanted was sold out. Be prepared for at least a two hundred dollar bill (without wine) for two plus tip, and depending on your level of hunger and thirst it could easily be more. Our total was just under $500.

And they have a very robust wine list, and though a bit spendy, it could satisfy a demanding and educated palate. This is a special event place and the staff knows that you are here for a treat. They were very accommodating and professional. I will come back again.

Excellent meal and service. The folks working there seem to share a desire to make guests feel welcome and looked after. Can only assume that it is very well managed and that they focus on service in every hiring decision. Top quality cuts. Great wines. The prices are high, as with most high end steak restaurants, but worth it here.

Went for my partner's birthday, and we both loved the food. The shrimp cocktail was done very well, and the crab cake came only as one and we wished there a little more to go around (to their credit, the menu did say "cake" not "cakes") but it was delicious. Ordered a porterhouse steak which could be a full meal in itself and done right. The side of macaroni and cheese was very good. Desserts were surprisingly excellent. My partner ordered the key lime pie and I the Belgian chocolate bourbon cake and were probably among the best I've had.

Only disappointment was that they told me during reservation confirmation they would do a little something for the dessert during plating because it was a birthday, but when dessert came it was a standard plating.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on December 24, 2017

Dinner reservation, Saturday, December 23, well below par. After years of dining at Gotham, traveling to Vancouver specifically for this reason, received apathetic, inattentive service, that marred the entire dining experience. Upon exit, related the same to the team at the front of house, was invited to contact the GM.

Courses *served* (some items ordered did not arrive) were quite good; service was lacking.

Having spoken with the GM in response to a detailed email, a very gracious and understanding gentleman, Gotham offered apologies and requested a mailing address for an “incentive”. I did caution a return to Gotham is unlikely but appreciate the sincerity of the conversation.

We went here for a over the top meal with my two adult children . We knew going in that this was not going to be cheap so we had our mind in a good place going in. The service was great from start to finish. We like to ask for help when ordering and our waiter helped walk us thru all the different cuts and sides. We went with two large steaks that would cover the rib eye, New York and filet. All were cooked medium rare. This was also a great way for everyone to try a bit of everything. You can't do this every night but for a special occasion go for it.

Went there for my boyfriend's birthday. Food and experience was amazing ! We loved it since we don't usually go fine dining. Server was super nice.

We ordered the Oyster Fontina for Applies, and the 20oz rib eye, and the steak&lobster. Desert we had the creme brulee with a nice birthday message.

It was such a nice experience!!

Lobster was over cooked. Filet was cooked well but lacked real meat flavour. Tuna was the best meal ordered and was done to perfection. Should not be a steak house best cooked meat!

Very expensive food but it is quite posh so that is to be expected. There is not an official dress code I know of but I'd take something fancy as I felt uncomfortable in my jeans and an old sweater among the CUSTOMERS in suits etc. Very attentive staff that knows a lot about the food and the women were pretty.
