Went to the raincity grill for a family birthday and had a fantastic meal. All food is local, sustainable and seasonal. Service was attentive and professional. We had the pork loin, salmon and beef and all were perfect! Yes, the menu is small (5 starters, 5 mains). but that is bc the menu is always changing to keep up with... More

Web site indicates food being offered for Sunday Brunch. Menu offering at the restaurant not as complete as web site, in fact menu items extremely limited. Had the English Bay Breakfast, two eggs, farmer sausage (extremely greasy) some smoked bacon (not very crisp) some mushrooms and herbed roasted potatoes and fresh fruit (3 slices of very thinly sliced apple) and...

Been looking forward to Raincity Grill for a while and it didn't disappoint! We started with the tuna and then had the beef tenderloin as the main. The presentation of the food was excellent and it tasted good too especially the beef tenderloin, the service was quite alright, and I like the vibe of the restaurant. Highly recommended.

I made reservations for a group of 6 of us for a Sunday brunch. Our table was terrific, the service excellent and the food delicious. The one disappointment was that on a menu of 5 brunch items they were out of French toast as well as one of the 4 desserts. When the choice is so limited, it's hard to... More

We just had dinner at RainCity Grille for the first time last Friday night. We chose the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings and certainly were not disappointed! Wow! Although every course was excellent, we'd have to say that the main of pan seared steelhead trout took the prize. Moist flesh with a well seasoned crispy skin melted in... More

It took 70 minutes from seating to arrival of entree. A request for additional bread during the wait resulted in one piece being delivered with tongs. Scallops were flavorless. Caesar salad was overly large but not delicious; squash soup WOULD have been delicious if it were hot. We cut our losses and skipped dessert.

I chose this restaurant because of the amazing location and great menu for my moms birthday (3 adults). On arrival the staff was scrambled to hear we had a reservation. (Confirmed on Opentable) Our server was scattered and slow. Even coffees took far too long for brunch. She forgot to ring in our order and then didn't realize it until... More

The professionalism of the staff was outstanding, the value of the Groupon $158.00 for 4 was not. This was not a 7 course meal it was a 14 bite Tasting Menu dinner. The ridiculous reasons as to why the bread was not forthcoming (they were baking it) and then when we asked for another basket the kitchen was closed. The... More

Raincity Grill is a wonderful, small and lovely dining experience. I will go here again. The portions are just right! The food is great! This is a very small restaurant overlooking English Bay. The tables are close to each other and it is NOT a party atmosphere. That being said, it is a wonderful dining experience to be able to... More
