Flota Seafood

Food was good. Had an early dinner at 3:30pm, some of the help were sent home so some of the dishes we could not order. They need to get rid of the gnats flying around while eating.

If you do not speak Chinese, and do not know about dim sum dishes (we don't), this is an adventure. It certainly would be better to go with a Chinese person. In this huge restaurant, there was only one other table of non-Asian diners. We were simply at a loss trying to understand how to order, and trying to understand... More

We were lured by the free parking for 30mins. And then saw the big ad for a seafood place in the 3rd floor. We went up and got in -nobody else is around except for the waiter that upon close inspection later got some nail fungal infection going on.. Yuck. Kinda pricey. Food is ok - nothing special. There's better,... More

We had some wonderful dim sum here and I would highly recommend it for dim sum within downtown Vancouver. The service was very pleasant and food was delicious.

Went here on May 17 for a spot of dim sum brunch, first impression of the place is it is massive with lots of diners, but couldn't help noticing how dated the decor was! How was the food going to be?? It is a cart service, so the food came quick and fast, the quality was so so. The diners... More

Mry wife and I stopped in at the Floata in Chinatown to eat some dim sum for lunch. The dim sum was excellent with a large variety of types to choose from. The restaurant was clean and the service excellent! Ed K.

The men's washroom has been divided in two by a small screen so that women can use two of the stalls since the ladies bathroom is 'under renovation'. There was a hose running to the faucet. Gross. The group I was with was about 100 people but the karaoke for the ten people in the next room drowned out our... More

I should have gone with my gut instinct never to return to this hell hole again. My last visit from about 4 years ago was terrible but when friends wanted to go again 2 weeks ago, I relented just because it is so close to the Chinese New Year parade. Service was non-existent. I gave up waiting and walked to... More

This is a great place to go and eat before a Canucks' game at Rogers Arena. Food is good and service is great because there is very few people there at the time. I've never been disappointed. My friends love it. The bonus - parking is also free if you eat there - taken off your food bill.

In a world where there are amazing restaurants, Floata really is disappointing. Especially in a world-class city like Vancouver, BC, don't waste your time and hard-earned money at Floata. They acted like they didn't want to serve us and that it was a chore to provide us water with our meal. They literally tossed several of our plates on the... More
