We booked reservations for the Afternoon tea. We were seated promptly and had a nice table by the window where we could watch the planes take off. We were told we couldn't come 30 minutes earlier because they were booked but there were very few customers in the restaurant when we arrived. It took awhile to get served, but someone... More

We spent the night at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport after departing our cruise ship so we decided to do dinner at the Globe@YVR. At first, we didn't know if we would be able to dine there, as we didn't want to don a dress and suit for dinner. To our surprise, the dress code is casual, yet nice and the... More

Airport hotel but well above many city dining spots...food and service was excellent. Canadian wine prices are high but good quality.

Just couldn't do the food court or even one of the sit down restaurants for dinner at YVR, they really are bad, especially Hanami (before security International terminal). The Globe is beautiful, amazing view of the North Shore mountains, nice decor and atmosphere (some people find it cold, but I think it's fine). The menu is quite limited, but everything... More

My husband & I really enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant last month when staying at the Fairmont before our holidays! What a great way to start by enjoying a fantastic meal together in a lovely setting! The food was amazing & the service was incredible...very intentive but not in the way of us enjoying a romantic evening! We... More

I usually give Globe one more star but this time even thought he food and service are excellent and the ambiance is perfect for preflight I was sad to see the Lifestyles menu is gone. There were innovative from organic, to vegan to raw that tempted every palate. Now even though the food is excellent is is more mainstream and... More

Going for high tea is my very favorite thing to do...and I go often. I was excited to go to the Fairmont Airport for the first time a week ago. First, the ambience...just a cookie cutter hotel dining room...nothing warm or intimate about it for spending a couple of hours chatting with a friend over a cup of T. Second,... More

We stayed one night at the Fairmont and were appreciative of an onsite dining room for our breakfast before our flight home. While the buffet was great we recommend the al a carte menu. We find the service is better when you order from the menu. I also prefer to get hot coffee served to me rather than having to... More

Good food and drinks and service. Nice environment and relaxing place to unwind before or after a flight. Costly though $$$. You will pay for the positives of this location. Only one location for families in the lounge.

Had lunch at the Globe and enjoyed it immensely. Had a special bacon and chorizo soup which was great and very tasty. For my lunch course I had the sable with lentils and it was cooked perfectly and tasted magnificent. Great local fare with a gourmet flair. I was with a group and the service was outstanding with the server... More
