This restaurant hast the most amazing views! The staff were top notch! However, the menu and décor could use some help. I understand some of the west-coast theme can't be helped but the tables/chairs, carpets and lights could use an update. The menu seemed to be stuck in the 80's too. I had the seafood chowder and lobster pasta and... More

This is a nice restaurant up on the western hills overlooking Vancouver. It is a bit out of the way so need a car to get there. Staff are friendly, service is good. Quality of food is also good.

I have eaten here a few times over the past 20 some odd years and it is always so good. Great location, friendly service and delicious food. Any place that has Quails Gate Wine always makes me happy. The salmon dishes are always great. A must while in Vancouver.

My wife and I were at the Salmon House on the Hill thirty years ago, and just this past month returned to the restaurant on trip through Vancouver. The restaurant has a fabulous view of what I believe is English Bay below and Vancouver. Once again we were not disappointed by the food or service at this establishment. Our salmon... More

This is a special occasion and bring your out of town visitors restaurant. I bring both family and business guests and everyone loves it. Our family has marked many birthdays here. The south wall is totally glazed and the restaurant is well-designed with a tiered floor, so even tables farthest from the windows get a view. Window-side tables offer a... More

In a place like this you always pay a bit for the view --- but of course, not everyone has one. I asked the server if I could get by on two appetizers and she said yes...the correct answer was no. Too small and expensive. Fellow diners enjoyed their halibut.

I wanted to impress my visiting friends from Scotland with not only wonderfull food but also the best view of Vancouver. We enjoyed the excellent service and food with only one niggle. People kept getting up and opening a fire door to go out and take pictures, leaving the door open and letting us feel the draft. The staff just... More

Salmon House has been around for a long time - my recent lunch there on Mother's day made me wonder why it took so long for me to go back. The service was excellent - we were seated very quickly even though we were early for our reservation. Although window seats are best, you get amazing views from most of... More

The food was excellent when I took n My god-daughter, her sister and two trainee doctors here for a meal. The view is outstanding and the fish very good here. Fortunately so are the few meat dishes. A different aspect out of downtown Vancouver. Taxi fare is reasonable.

I recently hosted dinner for 38 in the private Coho Lounge and the salmon house really knocked it out of the park. First off, our reso was only for 30 and when I showed up we had 38 an they didn't bat an eye accommodating us. Sonja our server was incredible. She worked very hard and immediately accommodated any request... More
