We went here with our nana for a nice night out. To start, the venue is nice, but quite dated. This place would have been insane in the 90's but it lacks any modern touches. I was a bit nervous as I felt I had entered a place that was past its prime. Definitely not a dump, but just needs... More

On our visit last Sunday night we had an unobstructed view of Vancouver's city lights from our window seats, so I suspect previous suggestions that the view from The Salmon House has lately been obscured by trees might be referring to some other restaurant. Though nothing we sampled was so amazing that it provoked goose bumps, everything was well prepared.... More

It's been many years since I've enjoyed a repast at the Salmon House, a lot has changed including a fire in the kitchen a while back. I have nothing remarkable to report other than like the Observatory Restaurant on the top of Grouse Mountain most of the magnificent view which patrons came to enjoy has now been obscured by trees.

The decor hasn't been updated in decades, but consistently great food and AMAZING views. Can be cold in winter if your seated next to the windows, but the views make-up for that!

First impressions were excellent. While the entry walk way into the restaurant could use some updating, once you're inside it's lovely. Nice use of etched glass, wine vault, wood to create a warm room. The hostess was welcoming and our service was good. The views across the bay to Stanley Park and Coal Harbour are really nice during the daytime:... More

We have visited the Salmon house a number of times. This last visit was with an elderly lady with mobility problems. The staff were most helpful and made a special effort to get us comfortable in an ideal location to enjoy the view but also to maximize ease of access for our guest. Food was excellent; we enjoyed a selection... More

We had dinner here this week for the first time in years. Both of us had the 3 types of salmon with shrimp risotto. Everything was prepared and served beautifully. The salmon was moist, the flavor of the risotto excellent and the vegetables were just right. Our server was efficient and friendly. What was outstanding was the view! This is... More

The view is spectacular, and the decor/atmosphere is lovely. But the service was poor. The waiter just didn't get back to our table, after we received wine, so the wait was long. And, one portion of the meal was totally forgotten. Some of the party had very good food, but the one who ordered steak said it was tough.

Very good Restuarant with great view of Stanley Park, downtown and out to UBC. If you enjoy sea food you will not be disappointed. The menu is quite varied and includes many items beyond sea food. Good service
