Expensive but good way to spend the night before flying out

Decided to have drinks and dinner here before we flew out. Yes airport meals/drinks are expensive but Globe was no more expensive than the other restaurants in YVR. We shared samosa's (ohhhh so good) caprise salad (very good), calimara (good) and butter chicken (very good). That meal with four... read more

We were celebrating a very special occasion and chose to have our celebratory dinner at a restaurant with past memories and toast to future ones. Our food was excellent, and every item very freshly prepared. We asked for medium rare beef, and that was exactly on the mark and was literally melt in your mouth delicious. The kitchen was certainly... More

Great for a night before a 6 a.m. flight! After a relaxing cocktail in the lounge, we enjoyed an excellent dinner, perfectly prepared and presented by an attentive server. Very unique presentation on my wife's pork tenderloin which she really enjoyed. Equally so with my short ribs, cooked for 24 hours, so incredibly tender. Highly recommend!

Had a long layover between flights and decided to have lunch in restaurant. Mushroom soup was great but burger.....have had better at Wendy's. Beige in colour and tasted/looked like it was a frozen processed patty and junior chef confirmed as much....pretty poor for $22. Worst part about it? My complaint was only addressed with a "we will give you a... More

Always enjoyable to eat at this restaurant where the food is consistently cooked to perfection and the service is outstanding. Although menu items are pricey, they are worth it. The caesar salad is outstanding -- not overdressed like many other restaurants. The short ribs were succulent, flavoured to perfection and my dining companion remarked that her chicken was outstanding as... More

I look forward to having a meal here while staying the night before an early morning flight. The food is really good, pricey but it's a fairmont and an airport... I was alone so one minor complaint was that service wasn't that attentive especially for someone who had no dinner companion. I waited almost10 minutes from the time I ordered... More

We've eaten here before and enjoyed the experience – particularly the friendly and professional service – so we decided to come back for a nice dinner out on Christmas night. The room wasn't full, so there's no excuse for the hit-and-miss service; we were ignored for long stretches of time, dealt with by four different servers, and, though all four... More

If you have a long layover while waiting for your flight, make your way to the Fairmont Hotel attached to the International/US Terminal and enjoy a delicious meal in comfortable surroundings in the restaurant or bar while watching flights take off and land through the floor to ceiling windows. We were there for a late lunch/early dinner a few weeks... More
