Gotham Steakhouse and Bar
I first dined at Gotham 4 years ago by myself and it was an incredible and delicious experience. I finally was able to return and brought a friend and it was JUST as delicious as I remembered! The service was incredible. The food was truly sublime. I loved every minute of it. YUM!
Ants crawling all over the table and cutlery on the patio!
Food is ridiculously overpriced and comes with no sides. Gotham, if your rent costs so much you have to ration sides of veggies or potatoes instead of including them with a meal that costs $80 you should seriously file bankruptcy.
Hostess did not give us the seat I requested in my “special notes” on open table asking for a romantic booth but not and isolated one. She seemed like she didn’t even know we were coming so I assume she didn’t know.
We eventually moved to the patio realizing how many people were out there and how dead it was inside. We caught a mere 5 min of the social hour by that time and couldn’t order more at the more reasonable yet still overpriced items. We wanted to hear the live guitarist who started playing in the lounge at 7 but by then we’d already moved tables once and didn’t want to move again so we missed the whole thing I had planned to come see and show to my boyfriend for his birthday.
I had to explain that it was a birthday to our server despite reserving it as such. My boyfriend was denied a free birthday dessert like every other restaurant in the world does it.
The waiter Jasper did ask for some fruit and whipped cream for us and we got it which was above and beyond. Great service from Jasper.
Couldn’t believe a $80 steak and lobster meal didn’t have ANY vegetables at all you have to order them separately and they’re not cheap. Who do you think you guys are? Gotham, if rent is so high you cant include veggies or potatoes on the side of such an expensive meal you should consider going out of business or filing for bankruptcy because that’s pretty much the message you’re already sending. Total bill came to $255 after tip. Wtf?
First and last time to come here. Talked to many people about Gotham they said they too didn’t return after being there once.
This will be our second time visiting Gotham for a birthday dinner. As usual, the service was excellent. What was not usual, was the awesome waiter that greeted us. Through humour, he made lots of suggestions and we were glad we took them. He easily guided us through a few simple questions before making his recommendation for a steak. Needless to say, he was spot on. We enjoyed the dinner and was well taken care of thanks to everyone, especially our waiter, checking in every so often. During our dessert round, our waiter suggested we combined our key lime pie and our cheesecake for the best bite ever. Our minds were blown. This has been a truly memorable dinner!
We choose the Porterhouse steak which was the best of both worlds. The juicy sirloin and filet was cooked to perfection, tender and succulent. We sat at the outside patio which was cozy and comfortable. Only change we would of made was to get the baked potato rather than the hash brown potatoes....which were thick and very filling. the Ceaser salad was a little heavy on the dressing and I would ask for it on the side. The service was very attentive, relaxed and friendly making it a very enjoyable dinner out.
It was the first time for my husband and I dining there. It was our first year anniversary so we thought it would be a great place to celebrate. Boy, we were impressed! I have had some amazing steaks in the past, but I have never had steaks done to perfection like they did it. It was a very expensive dinner, but it was worth every dollar. The sides came separately but were of generous portion. We could have gotten away with ordering fewer sides. Overall, we were amazed by the food there. Highly recommend for special occasions in life.
Always phenomenal food and empicible service. A joy to go there and worth every penny just remember to bring many dollars. But that's what top shelf dining costs. In all it's glory and class you still feel like you are home or at a friend's house just with the red carpet out and king for a day. Drinks were superb, they even made me mine from an old menu exactly the same four years ago when I was there last. Ordered the seafood tower with high expectations and were not disappointed just miffed a bit. Over half the items were semi still frozen in the center. Yes seafood has to be cold but I can see why it used to be pre-ordered. That way some items would be able to thaw and be chilled. Obviously the items are prepared in advance then made to order. Tasty just I see how they appear to be fresh but the tower seemed production line processed. Steak was cooked flawless. Exactly rare medium rare as I like it and how the two different cuts of the Porterhouse are meant to be. Sides perfect to match the high quality of every little detail. Our server Mark was magnificent. Friendly, courteous, quick, skilled , knowledgeable and great sense of humour. Recommended an impressive wine when I choose Zinfandel. My favourite restaurant and proved it once again. Not one single negative comment on it about anything. A complete 100% incredible dining experience that one should have in their lifetime to know what level the bar is at. Gotham is gold and all the others are a distant second, who remembers silver anyway. Looking forward to my return visit when the Tomahawk steak will be mine. Treat yourself and go there. You deserve it and the experience will astound you.
First time there. Patio was excellent. Ahi tuna preparation and presentation only fair. For the price I expected more on both counts. Jon , our waiter was very good. Design of restaurant and patio was very good. Would I go back again I don't think so. Other places I prefer for the money.

Food seems expensive but portions are big so can def be shared. Don’t recommend the field mushrooms as a side, but highly recommend the mashed potatoes and creamed corn.
Great food and service with large number of menu options but very expensive. Spent over $400 for 2 people,
Perfect service and food!
The ambience was very pleasant and the service was excellent. Very good wine list as well. The prices however, are completely ridiculous. $70 for a steak with absolutely no sides. All of our steaks were perfectly cooked so no complaints there. However, there was really nothing special at all about any of the four steaks our group had. Speaking just for myself I did not find the filet to be particularly flavourful either.
Food is ok, not as great at this price point. And if you want to go to a truly high end steakhouse, you should go find another
Excellent dinner and ambiance. Colby was the best waiter I have ever had. Very professional atmosphere but still very friendly. Steak was amazing.
outstanding waiting staff
suitable for wheelchair confined
parking across the street accomodates large vehicles
lighting inside may be "brighten" if not already with dimmers

Just had an exemplary experience at Gotham! The service was far above our expectations, which are generally quite high when we eat here.
As usually the steak was cooked to perfection!
Our even with Gotham this time reminded me why it is one of the best steak houses in vancouver!
Side note: I hear they are doing a Reno to the kitchen this summer so cheese toast will make a return to menu soonish... can’t wait!
Had dinner on the patio which is very nice. The food was not bad but not good value. The filet was 10 oz. which is quite large for a filet, it is more typically 6 or 8 oz. I ordered it medium rare but it was closer to rare. $200 for two with one glass of wine was pricey, especially given that the meal wasn't great. Thought $65 for the filet and having to pay for sides was expensive.
Good service, perfect meat!
Love the butter
Best steak in a long time
Gwendolyn provides exceptional service. Transforming dinner into a culinary adventure. Progressional, knowledgeable and friendly.
I was there to celebrate the completion of my final practicum for school. The waitress overheard our conversation and had the chefs write congratulations on my dessert. It was so thoughtful. :D and the piano player was amazing. Thank you!!!
Amazing food and service loved the ambiance and decor
The steak is still perfect!
Started with the bone marrow appetizer, it was delicious, rich and flavorful. We then ordered the bone in ribeye steak and the mushroom side. The steak was 32 oz so definitely a shared meal. It was full of flavor and grilled to perfection. Amanda was our waitress and she was extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable. She definitely helped us in making our decision. Definitely request her if you go. I'd to go back just because she left a lasting impression on us. Half the experience is dependent on the server. We've visited steak houses from around the world and Gotham definitely is in the same league as some of the top steakhouses like Ruth Chris and Goodman's.
We love having lunch at Gotham. The serving staff is attentive and kind. Malia has served us at least twice and looked after us very well. The decor is luxurious and the sound level is absolutely perfect for conversations. A first class dining experience!
Always excellent service & food is on point ... ✨👌
Hands down best steakhouse in town. Servers are very knowledgeable of the cuts of steaks they serve, as well as the way they can serve the steak. For example, you can share two steaks between 3 people and ask them to cut the steak for you so it's easier to share. It's nice to order different cuts and try them, making the meal more interesting, as the flavours and texture sure very quite a bit between different cuts of the steak. I have been here twice before, over the years, and this time I had an excellent meal, as predicted. This restaurant is consistent with the quality of the steak they are serving. If you are a foodie who is a steak enthusiast, this place will not disappoint you.
I have tasted all of the restaurants in downtown,but I think the steaks gotham is the #1
Melt in your mouth steaks ,an extensive wine list , and amazing welcoming staff !! Would highly recommend the porter House steak and the brussel sprout / chorizo hash and of course finishing off with a scrumptious creme brulee 😉. Also Colby and James are 2 of the best servers u may encounter !!
We absolutely would recommend Gotham Steakhouse and Bar ! Our experience was memorable. We are looking forward to our next visit.
Best steak I've ever had.
Too expensive for the food you get. steak was way too overcooked
We had a fabulous birthday lunch for two very special friends!!
The service was terrific and the drinks and food were fabulous!!
Wish you had valet parking at lunchtime!
Outstanding food and service. Portion sizes were generous (with a price) and sharing a good way to go. Best Porterhouse ever had. Enormous wine list that we didn’t take advantage of. Special thanks to Jasper and the live (hidden in the other lounge) guitarist.
Was in Vancouver for a conference. Made reservation based off recommendation. Amazing food!!! I had the lamb chops. They were like butter and flavorable. The asparagus was cooked to perfection. The o-rings were hot and crunchy. The ginger apple cider was ridiculously refreshing. Our waiter was unforgettable!!! The irony is that I forgot his name. I’ll have to look at my receipt and update my review. :) Just get here if you can.
The rib eye steak is perfect! The server is really nice!
Great ambience and attention to detail. We were there for a lunchtime business meeting. Portions were small. Platings on steak and mashed potatoes were unimaginative yet pricey. Drinks were equally uninspiring
Server forgot to ask how I wanted my food cooked. It arrived way too well done for my taste. Bacon was way too crispy - it crumbled at a touch - and the meat was totally well done and dry, whereas I prefer my bacon to be moist and my meat to be much rarer and juicy. However, my companion had his food and I did not have the time to wait for a better suited meal for myself, so I just ate the overcooked one.
Great quality steak must try the porterhouse. Extensive wine list. One of the best one at North America
