If you look for fine dining restaurant, you can't go wrong at this place. Its specialty is steak. From very expensive to medium price range, I can get the best steak in my budget. I have been this restaurant in different occasions, retirement party, Christmas lunch with coworkers, and family dinner. I enjoy the food and services. Too bad, I don't drink alcohol and can't comment on wine selection.

We originally planned on dining in the main dining room and at the last moment chose a seat on (their very excellent) rooftop patio. My wife and I shared a couple glasses of very well priced white wine and went on to have their taster platter. For the quality of the restaurant, and the food itself, it was very reasonably priced at $110. The presentation was simply outstanding, and the food itself was some of the best I can remember. I would happily recommend their version of a modern upscale bistro to anybody. $110 might give some sticker shock, but if you are looking for quality and ambiance, a full season patio (!!!) in the heart of downtown vancouver, and a menu that delivers what it promises, then the price tag is well earned. We are definitely making this a destination when passing through Vancouver.

Booked on Open Table with request for a quiet table for two as this was a birthday, however, the hostess tried to seat us at a tiny table for two just inside the front door. Requested alternate seating and the manager Arty(sp?) jumped in and accommodated us very nicely with an upstairs table. He checked on us during the meal and also when we left. Great service from him! I ordered salmon (I know- it is a steakhouse) which was ok but nothing special.

I absolutely love this restaurant! The service is amazing, the food is excellent, and the atmosphere is beyond! The only thing I didn’t like was the king crab appetizer. It was a bit fishy. Other than that we all had a wonderful time!

The problem with most Glowbal restaurants, is that the service is always subpar and leads to a bad experience altogether, even if the food was good (it was too salty actually)

Music too noisy, Kind of Music does not fit to ambiance, potato gratin have Bern cold, Brussel sprouts were Burns to black. Service was excellent,
but could not compensate bad experiences.

Service was not with a smile. Stand-offish. Main course prawns were raw and didn’t have a particular wow factor for the high cost! Nice environment on the roof.

Service was terrible (we were sat at the rooftop so perhaps downstairs would have better service). It took 30 minutes just to get out dessert which was a slice of cake. Server was not attentive and the ceviche just tasted like lime. The only good thing about this place was the steak.

I booked a table with 5 people 3 days ago. When I come here, the waitress brought me to the second floor. I asked on the way, is it available for happy hour? She said yes. But in fact there is only available at the first floor. I told the waitress that we want happy hour and dinner together, but she gave us a sofa not a table. I asked for change, finally I got a table. I spent 20mins in the black and blue to get the table?? The food is very slow, even for the oysters. For this reason, I didn’t eat my dessert and leave in order to see my movie.

The waitress isn’t familiar with the food. I wanted to order Sunday special prime rib, but she didn’t know. Then, I wanted order the 16oz prime rib, she said this isn’t special. I told her it is on your website.

We were celebrating our close friend's 55th Birthday. Due to unforeseen circumstances, 5 of our party of 6 were over 30 minutes late. The staff was beyond gracious as the guest of honour was the first and only to arrive on time.

From the moment we sat down, our Server David along with Marcel and a number of others were highly professional and hospitable. David's knowledge and presentation were awesome!!

Seeing Frenchy was a GREAT SURPRISE!!!!!!!

Most of us went with the promotional Prix Fix Going Glowbal Menu....What a great value!!!!

The food was typical Glowbal standard - Flavourful and Delectible.

Will definitely be back!!

We bought the buy up package as my boyfriend and I are both a big fan of Black & Blue. However tonight’s meal is quite disappointing. We requested that our meat to be cooked medium rare, however it turned out to be rare to barely cooked. We understand it is a striploin and it usually has a strip of fat on the side, but the meat we got, at least more than 50% of the meat was fat. We barely got to eat any of it. When i reflected this disappointment to our server i was asked “What do you want?”. I was quite astonished to hear that as i didn’t have the intention to request for anything. It was asked in an abruptly manner too. I just wanted to bring to the server’s attention that the meat we had was not as expected and hope they can be aware.

Stake was there as good as I expected, too many table on the first floor, so tight. I suggest that not put the table in front of the kitchen. It's looks cheap restaurant.

We had high hopes going into the restaurant to celebrate an anniversary with my partner. Poor excuse of service. It wasn’t clear who our server was. It started off nice and quick, after we received our appetizer it went downhill. Waiting for our entree took an hour after our appetizer. We had to ask when it’d be coming, we were told it would be out shortly which ended up being 30 minutes. The table behind us who came after us had an issue with their dishes which came out after 15 minutes when addressed. They paid and left before we even got our food. The server let us know that the manager would be coming right away. This did not happen, although the managers were going to other tables and providing them with service, the attention and empathy given to us was lackluster. In the end the manager comped our whole bill. It was nice of them to do that but felt as if he just wanted us out of his hair. Disappointing to receive such poor service in a reputable restaurant. We were not told anyone’s name besides Bob who was quite pleasant.

My husband and I came here for a date night before a Canucks game. We ordered apps and dinner. Our apps came out in a timely fashion and were really good. We then sat for just over an hour waiting for our meal. When it did finally come, everything was cold, including the porterhouse. Since it took so long to get out food and the kitchen was rushing to get it together as we were told by our server, you’d think our meal would be piping hot, but no. Not only did it take forever to get cold food, but we got to the game with 12 minutes to go. The manager apologized profusely and comped the meal, but for a restaurant with such stellar reviews, this was a real disappointment.

Was there to celebrate my sons 19th birthday. The food was good and the service was great. But we did wait almost an hour for the entre to arrive.
The staff was pleasant about it and I don't blame them at all and still left a generous tip. But that was too long to wait.

My partner and I noticed our waitress was not as informative as the other staff with describing the menu. We were sitted in a corner table on the window side. There were dead insects in between my seat and the window. Other than that, food was great. We enjoyed the wine. Would come again.

If you can stomach the price you will not be disappointed. As a once a year anniversary meal or a special occasion I highly recommend. I'm not used to fine dining and this was a true treat. Best steak I have ever had but all the other details are what add up to an amazing experience. You will not leave hungry either unlike some other expensive meals.

Our waiter was why we rated this restaurant so high her truly made it an experience.

The only thing I would say is that when booking the reservation open table asked if we were celebrating something and I said our one year wedding anniversary. However the restaurant didn’t mention it at all... why ask this question if there isn’t going to be someone at least saying congratulations on your celebration...
