One of the few remaining piano bars in Van. Been coming here for years. Pretty much stayed the same. Met some old friends for a nightcap. It's a good place to visit. In search of a scene? Not your cup of tea. We had champagne cocktails by the fireplace. This is a cozy, dark, plush room. We were the youngest... More

I have been to Bacchus a number of times and this did not disappoint. The menu was inventive and offered interesting choices. The décor is comfortable and rich, like a cashmere sweater. I had halibut, as did my colleague. The "crème brulee" pate was exquisite. I didn't pay the bill, so I can't tell you that it was a great... More

Good valet service. Great halibut superb fish selection and other non sea varieties. Wife had excellent duck. Gourmet portion sizes. Great wine list. Busy....loudish but still easy to have conversation at table. Felt like a happening sort of place. Not cheap but would match any restaurant in New York or Toronto. Very good service. Not snooty but comfortable efficiency.

We enjoyed a pre-set dinner as part of "Eat Out Vancouver". The service was excellent, the choices intriguing, the food was well prepared and very tasty and the wine flight pairing satisfying and good value. The atmosphere was wonderful, a bustling restaurant well appointed with the feel of New York!

I didn't preplan with a reservation for Valentines evening, the receptionist found us a table even though they were full. The food was so good, and the waiters were all working as a team, delivering food and cleaning tables. In the 50+ years of taking my Wife out on Valentines day this was by far the best meal we have... More

The food and ambience in this restaurant is excellent. There were 3 of us and we each had a different meal and there wasn't a bad thing said about any of them. The meat was so tender it almost melted in your mouth. The service was excellent, staff were so nice and friendly. I would definitely go there again and... More

Good and comfortable environment but food is not as good as expected. We ordered from dine out menu, since we have 4 people, so we got a chance to order all of the main entrees. New York Striploin is good, salmon is ok, and the duck is tasteless. Somehow I think the duck is pre-cooked and re-heated again. Service is... More

The menu offered for New Years Eve was 4 courses with a wine pairing to match. See photo attached. The difficult part was what to choose ! Everything sounded fantastic. Our waiter, Spencer, was personable, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Well done Spencer for your professionalism :-) My husband and I both started with the Pacific West Coast seafood. What a...

Dined on a Sunday night late December. Reservations probably a good idea since so close to Christmas. Lounge was busy and restaurant filled up quickly. We were greeted well and seated promptly. Problem was the table we were at had very low uncomfortable chairs. The table was practically at chest level. The maitre d offered a cushion but I didn't... More
