I have traveled and dined in more than a dozen countries. This was one of the most memorable meals in my 66 years of life. Everything was perfect. We went on a Tuesday evening, so there were not many diners there. The restaurant is beautifully situated on a hill overlooking all of Vancouver- harbor, Stanley Park, downtown Vancouver.

Recently had dinner at the Salmon House on the Hill, again, 31 years after the last time my wife and I enjoyed the Salmon House (we don't live in Vancouver). Our memories from 31 years ago were great, and we were not disappointed this trip either. When we booked our reservation we asked for a window seat, and were very... More

My wife and I had dinner here last night without the kids as a bit of a treat to ourselves. In that respect, it was a disappointment. The bread that came with my goat cheese salad was stale, the salad itself merely average and the rack of lamb ditto. Given the price, I expected far better. Wine, however, was excellent... More

Our family had dinner at this restaurant for my son's birthday, and we were impressed. First of, we were lucky, and the view was stupendous on a nice clear evening in Vancouver. The service was very good, with our server taking top notch care of us during our diner. The food was extremely well prepared, and it was very good.... More

Very friendly service, very good food and unhurried dining. Alder planked sockeye salmon with lobster salsa was a truly memorable main course. My wife really liked the clams & mussels appie and the pumpkin & chickpea fritters main. One minor grumble was that I'd have liked more chestnuts in my haricots verts and chestnut starter; on the other hand, it... More

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
