Unbelievable views

Stunning views. Food is ok but not superb. Views are well worth it though. Service is good. If you want appies and drinks, the lounge is very good and has the great view as well.

A mainstay in Vancouver for its seafood and killer view. The decor hasn't changed in years but sometimes the familiar can be nice. Why fix whats working? The food was good but like many restaurants these days the portions are getting smaller. Some dishes were presented well and others not so much. My friend ordered a caesar salad and it... More

This used to be our favorite restaurant to take out-of-town guests. On Saturday, July 4th, we decided to try it for a special an occasion: a belated celebration of my partner's birthday. I should have checked their menu online because they've made several changes—not for the better—since our last visit. We follow a vegan (mostly wheat-free) low-carb diet . These... More

I visited this restaraunt again recently and it was the same as always. Good, but not amazing food. Nice view. Reliable service. A bit pricey, but you can count on this restaurant to deliver a pleasant, predictable experience. It is a particularily good place to take guests who are older or seniors. Easy access, mainstream food and tastes, nice view,... More

We're a retired couple who visited on a Monday evening. The view was superb. The food and service were good but not significantly better than most restaurants on the North Shore. We were surprised to see that the prices have increased over 30% since we visited about a year ago. A salmon dinner with carrots, beans and new potatoes was... More

Ok so The Salmon House in my mind has always had the "tourist" niche and for that reason they haven't been required to keep service and food at a top notch level. Salmon House I am sorry for my misguided assumptions. Delicious brunch, attentive service, cocktails with a view!! Well done, I am rightfully humbled (and full).

We went to the Salmon House for a friend's birthday dinner. While the view was spectacular and absolutely stunning, we were so very disappointed with the food. I ordered the Salmon Trio and every piece of Salmon was so overcooked, that they were completely dried out. Absolutely unacceptable for a place that is supposed to specialize in Salmon and because...

If you like salmon, this restaurant serves it so many ways. I recommend the trio starter plate. Great wine list too. You can relax and enjoy the stunning views of Vancouver and eat fresh seafood beautifully prepared. A great gem in a West Vancouver!

Unfortunately we can't comment on the view as we visited the restaurant during the recent smoky skies advisories. So minus the view, we weren't blown away by anything. The meal and the table service were decent but not spectacular. We had the Signature Tower for two along with a few drinks. The lobster tail was cooked well and the accompanying... More
