Visited here for lunch before Christmas as I have tried a number of the other "Glowbal" restaurants with no major issues. Opted for the chicken sandwich, which sounded very nice. What was given to me was undercooked chicken. The manager was very apologetic and did not charge for our meal, but I would very much have preferred cooked chicken in... More

Black and Blue has good steaks and is a good choice for dinner. I would caution that they aren't the best place for a larger group, I've had my birthday here twice and there were issues both times. Other than that, I find that they usually do a good job when it's a small group of 2-4 people.

I had high hopes for this restaurant. The first disappointing thing was VPD showed up and strutted around like it was there second home and they then proceeded to take pictures with people at other tables. Quite shocking really. Are they famous?! Not likely. Anyways, the price you pay for the food you receive is not comparable. Will not be... More

Great rooftop setting with fire pits all round making for a really cool atmosphere. The food was exceptional (loved the jerk chicken skewers), fab cocktails and the house red was delicious. Philip the manager was so delightful and friendly and runs a great show. Will definitely be back, the sooner the better!

Had dinner reservations here last night. Arrived on time and let the hostess know about our reservation. Waited 40 minutes, watched another party of 4 arrive and be seated without a hostess even approaching my group again as we waited. After watching that, I stepped outside, called Hy's Steakhouse and booked a reservation there instead. Walked back in, gathered my... More

First of all I wish I took a picture of what I'm about to describe very briefly, however I was so disgusted I could not even look at it!!

Description
The magic of a classic steakhouse, but with a decidedly contemporary twist. In-house aged rare cuts of beef, tableside Caesar salads, flambes, flaming coffees, and more. While he may find it familiar, it's definitely not your Daddy's steak house!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
