Good Choice in Coal Harbor

I have eaten at Showcase many times - usually with colleagues for special occasions, a few times with family. It is modern, upscale and bright yet still cozy. The bowl of different flat breads/crackers they bring to the table to start is yummy. You can't go wrong with the West Coast Cobb Salad or... read more

My wife and I enjoyed a great meal recently. It was my wife's first time - I've been at Showcase on numerous occasions for business lunches. My past experiences were so-so both in terms of food and service. I am very impressed with the updates to the restaurant. The interior has gone through a nice refresh and feels more lively.... More

The ambience of this restaurant is not the typical Marriott restaurant that I have stayed in before. Restaurant was upbeat, elegant and modern. Service was top-notch and friendly...menu is not vast but we were OK with the selection. Would recommend if you are staying at the Marriott and just want a relaxing meal....ask for a window table or booth..

the marriott pinnacle is our favourite when staying in vancouver. Previously the restaurant and bar has been great!! Not this time. The food was not up to 4 star marriott standards at all. Weak without zip and flavour. Perhaps even overcooked. Bar service was great (as usual) floor service was not. I will go to the hotel again but I... More

This restaurant is a wide, modern and elegant place with an above-average food. Servers are nice and attentive, and price is good considering it's an upscale venue. It opens until late at night and there aren't many places opening until this late in downtown, so it's kind of relief for night owls like me. I recommend all to have its... More

Title says it all. Service was friendly and quick. Food left a bit to be desired. Had the fish tacos. Found the lingcod ones to be dry.

The food in this restaurant is excellent, though quite pricey. I had duck for an entre, and it was beautifully done, with crisp vegetables and a delicious sauce. The wine is a little expensive, so that dinner for two was CA$200.

We had a $100 gift certificate, and when we finished our meal and tried to pay, were told that we could not use the remaining funds for another meal! That means that $60 of the $100 was wasted - going back to the restaurant! Those terms were not in any way stated on the certificate itself. What a pathetic way... More

Usually hotel restaurants are overpriced and I have to admit I was expecting the same her, but I was surprised by the result. This restaurant was recently renovated and now it has a more elegant and open concept. I have to admit that still feels a bit cold due to openness, still is a big improvement for what it used...

This restaurant is attached to the Marriott. After entering the restaurant from the street entrance there is no hostess or reception. We stood there confused for about a minute and then walked thru the restaurant to the hotel lobby thinking that would be where the hostess was. Servers walked by but didn't ask if we needed help. Still no hostess,... More
