We just had dinner at the Shaughnessy and everything was just outstanding! The menu is very nicely done - not too big, not too small and they always have a features menu. Staff was very attentive, our waiter Donald was excellent, always friendly and polite. The food is delicious and with the lovely setting it tasted even better. Thank you... More

Enjoyed returning to the Shaughnessy on a recent visit to Vancouver. No question about the lovely setting overlooking the Pacific and out toward North Vancouver surrounded by the beauty of the VanDusen Gardens. Service was good and our waitress very pleasant (only glitch was that she removed the main course plates before our senior citizen guest had finished her meal... More

I'm giving this place 3 1/2 stars. The view is amazing with all the trees and beautiful flowers around. The food was good but the serving was small for the price and the service was spotty. Our friends enjoyed their Paella and Lamb Sirloin. The hubby was craving for comfort food so he ordered mac+cheese which was tasty. I ordered... More

We were visiting the VanDusen Gardens (which is also wonderful, by the way), fully expecting to have lunch at a nearby restaurant. We saw the Shaughnessy and decided to give it a try. It was excellent, both food and service. It has a full menu, but we ordered from the brunch menu. I had the Eggs Benedict (many types to... More

This restaurant is at the pretty VanDussen Gardens. Parking can be an issue with weddings, special events, etc. The menu has been the same for years - would be nice to change it up a bit although they do have a limited daily specials menu. Service & atmosphere were very good. All presentations were nice. My Eggs Benny were okay... More

Lunched at the Shaughnessy and found meal options to be VERY limited for vegetarians, which was disappointing. The service was incredibly slow. Meals were brought at significantly different times, which meant other meals were getting cold before the last meal finally showed up. At one point, when we still had 15 minutes or so 'til we had to head back... More

This is one of my favourite places to eat in Vancouver and I have been a customer many, many times, although only for lunch, never for dinner. The setting is perfect as the room looks out on Van Dusen Gardens (if you can get a window seat or sit on the deck in the summer, the "garden" setting is even... More

With my colleagues I went to the Restaurant at the Vandusen Botanical Garden. I was a bit sceptical since the lunch menu was not that big; not so many choices. And the prices were relative high. Also it made a bad first impression that we had to wait despite we had booked the table in advance. Anyways, the facility was... More
