Underwhelming Piece of Cow – Gotham’s Steakhouse and Bar

Fine Dining Steakhouse Downtown Vancouver. Setting the standard of steakhouses in Vancouver.

As a recognized fine dining steakhouse in Vancouver, this was the  foremost crowning underwhelming experience I had the displeasure of sitting through. Sure the prices start at $50 for just the steak but, it does not imply the steak is gastronomic

masterpiece, in fact it was a boring, un-flavourful chewy piece of cow. The Filet Mignon and Lobster combo at $52, was a disappointment, I could have went to any other casual restaurants including Fah’Cactus and received a much better value for their filet, it could not be more than $30.

Gotham’s Prime Rib – $40, very comparable to Sandbar’s prime rib, which comes in a 3 course meal for $30!? How can I compare such a quality piece of meat to that from a casual restaurant? Well, the quality they keep on selling did not exist

The sides range from a heaping side of Mash Potatoes for $5.50 to Spiced Sautéed Mushrooms for $7.50

Perhaps their promising recommendation of their Crème Brûlée will save this dinner but, sadly not only did it not deliver but, the rather uniquely lumpy texture, reminded me of tapioca and oatmeal, with the odd chunks of raw sugar.

As for the service and atmosphere, it was great if you want a place to hold your business meetings, or a place to relax with drinks. Unfortunately for Gotham’s Steakhouse, it is not enough for me to recommend it to my readers.
