Fantastic evening a C restaurant recently. The service was friendly and experienced with staff making our party feel welcome and relaxed. View was great and the food - superb! A not to be missed experience in Perth.

Very disappointing for a restaurant constantly highly rated by the local Van mags. The entire place needs a thorough cleaning and freshening. Maybe the marine environment has taken its toll. Our waiter, while not poor, definitely was rough around the edges and might be better suited to a very casual bistro. My main dish was ordinary and served Luke warm... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant, but it just didn't live up. The harbor patio setting is very nice in the summer. The sun was rather intense, but they were passing through a heat wave apparently. When we arrived, it was not overly busy, but the staff was already apologizing for things taking too long. It took about 20... More

First with the main comment: the food we had here was absolutely incredible. Beet salad and scallops (with Ris de Veau) to start then Grilled sockeye and BC Albacore Tuna to follow was all beyond description. The preparation and quality of products is 2nd to none. Truly a culinary experience to savour that gives pure pleasure to eat. However, for... More

We were just taking a walk along the seawall and came across C - a restaurant we had been meaning to go to on a visit to Vancouver. I would agree with some of the reviewers about things being a bit rundown and dirty - lots of dust. However, our food and our service was just great. We only stopped... More

I remember when C was one of the top seafood restaurants in a Vancouver, but they've really gone downhill for a few years now. I keep hoping for the former glory days to return, but no luck again. I was yet again disappointed with one after another of uninspired, not very flavorful creations. The salmon was over cooked and dry... More

We have eaten at C roughly twice a year for the past decade. In all that time I have only once had a less than perfect experience. The menu is well designed for us. We typically have an appetizer and main and one of us has dessert. The service is very good. Last month we sat outside and it was... More

The food was poor, the service was terrible and the prices were high for the quality. I had been meaning to go for sometime but was underwhelmed by the experience despite the lovely view. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We went to C restaurant and had the 9-course tasting menu. The evening didn't start out too well, since the restaurant had gotten mixed up and booked our party of 4 as only 2. We were told (a little sharply) that there was no table for 2 inside. It was a nice evening, so we started out outside. Unfortunately, the... More

when you walk in and down their stairs you will see dust and dirt on the bottle display for their bar. yeecch. Typical foo foo high priced fish items where you leave hungry unless you order two mains!. The view and location are awesome and check out how the ceramic tile floor is old and need of repair.
