Good service, Good Food

Only had lunch here, and it's a small restaurant, but I'd go back! Great service at lunchtime, a good menu, and the food was also very good. Absolutely among the best in-hotel restaurants I've ever been to. The seating could be more comfortable, find for just a drink, awkward to eat at.

I regularly stay at the Westin Grand when in Vancouver and the Hidden Tasting Bar and Social Lounge is a great place to stop by for food and drinks when heading out shopping on Robson St. The beautiful Colloseum style Library allows for a breathtaking view, those who watched Battlestar Gallactica and many other shows will recognize it as Caprica...

I had the tuna crudo which was fabulous and their Mac and cheese, the best I've ever had. The service is excellent and the staff super attentive. Also, don't miss the Pop-up Patio on sunny Thursdays in the summer. Great drinks, view and atmosphere.

Located in the Westin Grand and it is hidden so you have to know it's there to find it... but just look for the bar/lounge in the lobby. Warm, cozy, quiet atmosphere with interesting selections on the menu. We enjoyed the mussels, scallop mac n cheese, and the lobster pontain. Definitely not diet food, but very good. Stands out because... More

Actually, this place is okay. I would not take a visitor there, but for a group of us girls having a quick lunch, it is so-so.

When the waiter got my meal wrong, they were not very apologetic. The manager did compensate... by giving me my SODA for free. Not much compensation for completely getting my meal wrong.

Mistakes happen, but it's in how we follow up with our guests that makes the difference, and I regret that we didn't handle this as well as we should have. At your... More

We had reservations at 6:30 pm on a Thursday for 2 people prior to seeing “Book of Mormon” at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. I have eaten here at least three times in the past few years. It’s less than a 10-minute walk to the QE Theatre. The restaurant is located on the second floor of the Westin Grand Hotel. We... More

We liked this restaurant. Chosen for a simple early evening meal downtown. The fish and salad were excellent and good value. Recommend this restaurant for an early evening meal with a view of the city.
