Consistently great service and high quality food

The service here is always exceptional and the food quality is excellent. It is a bit pricey but to be expected in a Fairmont Hotel restaurant. The menu is a bit limited and would be better if guests were also provided with the bar menu. For example, there is not a garden salad or Caesar salad on... read more

Convenient location in the airport - a lovely option for a sane break during hectic travel. Setting a thankful alternative to the eateries in the airport itself. Menu options are solid although not particularly inspiring, food is nicely presented. But the price is unhelpfully high for what you get. Ordered three fish dishes on a recent visit - serving size...

From a restaurant we visited quite often during ten year, our last visit was a disappointment. The meal and service left a lot to be desired. I won't be visiting there again.

We had a Monday night dinner here. We were not impressed. Our server seemed to be flustered and not readily available. We each ordered a wild salmon cooked on a plank. It was a small, think piece of flavorless fish that was really overcooked (and I grew up in the Midwest where I understand overcooked). Each of our menus has... More

Th breakfast buffet at Globe@YVR is a very relaxing experience. Coffee and juice are brought to your table along with a newspaper. Views are of the runways at YVR with the mountains in the background. The buffet includes standard fares as well as smoked salmon, fruit, frittatas, roasted vegetables and a omelet/waffle station.
