Four of us stopped in for Sunday night dinner. The server was nice but we had to ask for water, ask for cutlery, ask for more drinks when we ran out and she didn't even attempt to offer us dessert. The salad, which two people in our group had, was good. The burger was dry, the salmon with curry sauce... More

Its unfortunate that the hotel offers Keurig Coffee in the rooms and then serves such poor coffee in their restaurant. Mine was not drinkable. We also found breakfast to be a little disappointing and did not eat in the hotel again for our entire stay. There are too many other restaurant options close by that offer far superior food. The...

I've had two meals here, one for breakfast at about 8am and a snack at around 3pm. Server Natalie was really friendly, nice and professional. Breakfast was granola and yogurt, with fruit, fresh and tasty. Snack was a B.C. cheese plate. Fresh cheese, crunchy crostini, nice dried fruit, good portion, good variety of cheeses. The only thing is probably the... More

From the moment we were seated I knew we were in for a bad experience. This place was last choice for us because the Vancouver breakfast scene is already pathetic and we were getting at things a little late (around 10 am) on a Sunday so the odds were against us. The place looked fresh and inviting and was busy... More

While the menu does not have a tremendous amount of selection the food was good. I ate here after running in the Vancouver Marathon and wanted something filling. I had the oatmeal and pancakes - the serving sizes were good and reasonably priced.

I ate alone at a window booth. Great people watching and the salad was spectacular! A very large Cobb salad with their signature chicken--delicious!

The service was pleasant and my friend and I chose this place because we wanted to people watch but the location wasn't worth the food. It wasn't terrible but with so many choices I wouldn't eat here again. The soup was extremely salty and the halibut was a bit on the dry side. Their menu items overall seemed like good... More

Right on Robson, this lovely restaurant does a great breakfast. The place is decorated beautifully - it makes a change from having brunch at a greasy spoon, that's for sure!

My partner and I had breakfast at the Abode Restaurant three mornings in a row, and dinner one night, when we were staying at the Blue Horizon Hotel in early March. We are vegetarians, but the menu was interesting and gave us good choices - and the food was always good. Service was mostly excellent, though it varied at breakfast:... More
