We went to the Heron's for dinner with another couple after walking around Gastown and seeing the Fly Over Canada film. The location is perfect, the staff were very welcoming and the meal was delicious. We shared two appetizers and one large salad but we all had something different for an entrée and each dish was well cooked and the... More

Kind of East and West mixed with Thai flavor. Fairly pricey. Atmosphere is great and the service is outstanding.

Every time I go to an expensive restaurant I don't get what I pay for. They waste money and time trying to fancy things up with parsley etc when all you want is a good steak and some vegetables. They need to fire the chef's at these places and hire the local truck stop cook.

Nice small menue but extremely well prepared food. The Chardonnay wine here is a local BC wine and is fantastic.

Our experience was great: we celebrated my husband's brother birthday and somehow avoided problems some other guests experienced. The best seafood chowder ever. The best scallops (according to the celebrant himself) Excellent service. ONE GLITCH: desert contained french pastry which was undercooked, stale and cold. Shame, we could have said it was PERFECT otherwise.

The staff was exceptional with attention to our needs. They even have a special menu of different diets all prepared to order. Bravo.

I had the breakfast buffet here one morning. The staff was super attentive and cheerful. The amount of food was staggering. I really enjoyed what I ate but the truth was, there was no way I could eat enough to feel like I was getting a fair amount of food for the price. I recommend something simple off the menu.... More

The food is excellent I had white onion soup and lemon gnocchi. My guest had a salad and seafood pasta. Both meals were well prepared and a nice (not generous) portion. The richness made up for the serving size. The staff was exellent and the pricing is what you should expect when you consider the location. My only issue was... More

We went to our favourite restaurant to indulge ourselves. From start to finish we were made to feel special. Leann, our server, was her usual special self and treated us to some extras. Always a treat. The lamb dish was superb as was the halibut. No room for desert but their specialty coffees more than made up for that. We... More
