Family dinner for 4, Service was excellent from as soon as we walked in the door until we left. We sat in the mezzanine when we could easily converse at our table. Food was fantastic! Got so full on delicious appies, had the beet salad for dinner. Dessert was amazing as well, kudos to the pastry chef Tessa. Highly recommend.... More

If you judged this place solely on the look of the restaurant you would think it's a fabulous place. However, one should never judge a book by it's cover. Seated at table, it was missing a fork. Host couldn't remember the name of the person serving us, he fumbled for a while then gave up. water had bits of food... More

Dinner for two without a reservation...accommodated easily and without fuss. Quite a big restaurant but we were at the front in a small area and not crowded in. Salads were fresh and tasty: Louis salad and beet and goats cheese salad. Scallops wrapped in bacon were lovely; fish dishes were well cooked. A very enjoyable experience.

I've eaten here a couple of times, once when it was extremely busy, once when it was quiet. On both occasions the service was great. Just the right amount of attention. If you like steak, this is definitely the place to go in Vancouver. They serve Wagu ($19/ oz.) and a variety of other types of beef. Always cooked correctly.... More

I've only ever been to the rooftop restaurant a few times, never sat inside. The atmoshphere is always great. There was an incident the last time I was there for brunch where my eggs were not cooked the way I had asked. The server was great and took what I'd already eaten and brought me a whole new cooked dish,... More

An upscale and contemporary restaurant. We sat on the rooftop and had a wonderful meal. Service was very good. Server was professional and on his game. The NY strip was very good and seasoned properly and well. It wasn't a fabulous or mind blowing steak but the atmosphere and good service made for a very pleasant evening. I saw women... More

From the door being graciously opened upon arrival, my experience continually improved. Our lovely server Leah made me laugh the whole night. Big kudos to the amazing managers Thomas and Doug, very VIP experience. And the sexy Chef Sam don't even get me started.

I've been dining out all over the world for 30 years and have never come across a place where I've been treated so rudely and disrespectfully. Makes you wonder what did I do wrong to be treated this way? Didn't take much. I was on the patio for drinks and hopefully dinner with two friends. I was told by the... More
