Only do this on a day with clear weather (even in the evening) ... it will be SPECTACULAR to sit an dine and enjoy the view of Vancouver and Vancouver Island etc. Of course not the cheapest place in town, but then ... this is for the experience, and of course mostly for "us" tourists.

The menu with the exception of desert was excellent. The staff did a desert off of the menu for us as the choices in the set menu were not to our liking. Everything about the experience from the first class service to the meal itself was great. The price of the menu at $60 which included the trip up the... More

We visited her on recommendations from friend having heard that the view was great and the food was lovely, and the good was lovely! The view is what let this down. When we arrived we proceeded to have a look round the attraction side of the mountain, which is great and I would recommend doing this, however don't expect a... More

The ambiance is incredible, as to be expected. Unfortunately on our evening it was cloudy on the North Shore so there was nothing but fog to see once we were more than half way up. However it was still worth the price. We are Vegans, and although it is disappointing that they don't offer any Vegan options (nor Vegetarian if... More

Despite having a hazy day, it was still pretty spectacular to go up and see the sights from the tallest part of Grouse. At over 5,000 ft the views are awesome.

We had our last meal in Vancouver in the Observatory. It really was fine dining, with the food delightfully presented and a real taste sensation. The views just made it that much more special. A real treat and one we will definitely remember.

This was one of the best meals I have ever had! The meal was excellent, the service was excellent, the ambiance/view was extraordinary. And when you factor in the complimentary gondola ride which is priced at $40/pp it was a very good value as well! I took my parents for a special vacation treat and we arrived at 5:30, after... More

I had organized a company lunch for 25 of my colleagues. Being a local resident I had been to Grouse a number of times, but had never eaten at the Observatory. We booked the Timber Room for the event. The views of the city provided a fantastic backdrop to our meal. What really impressed me was the food. As this... More

I chose this restaurant on the Saturday evening of Vancouver's Celebration of Lights Fireworks, Japan; Akariya Fireworks evening. We arrive early (we came up earlier to allow time to visit the Grizzly Bears, Grinder and Coola and also take a ride to the top of the "Eye of the Wind" observation deck on the wind turbine on the mountain top)....

We booked the restaurant before we left for Vancouver so had plenty of time to look forward to the evening and we were not disappointed. We had booked for 8.30pm and had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. we were concerned that this was a sign of things to come but we could not have been more wrong.... More
