Fine meal, exquisite view of the city!

It's always fine dining at the Salmon House. We don't go too often because it's pretty pricey, but when we do, it's a delicious meal, with very warm and professional service.

Came here with my wife on our anniversary hoping to enjoy the spectacular views, a romantic interlude and a delicious meal. The views were amazing, my wife looked stunning as always but the meal was a disaster!!! My wife had the Lobster Tagliatelle. Not only was it under seasoned and bland but it should have been called a SOUP!! Runny,... More

You can't pick a better spot as far as views, they are breathtaking. Food was good but I can't say it was OMG amazing and blew me away! For sure a great spot though.

I happened to be in Vancouver on business and a friend suggested we try Salmon House. Am I ever glad we took this advice. The restaurant is nestled in the hills of West Vancouver overlooking the harbour and Vancouver across the Lions Gate bridge. The menu is extensive with alder grilled fresh fish and everything sounds delicious. I tried the... More

I went here to celebrate a special occasion and it's the perfect setting. The waiters were very friendly and the food delicious and the views of Vancouver just stunning. I was charged 12 dollars over the listed price of wine but the waiter was busy so when I notified her she quickly changed it back. The night was great I... More

Good service,pleasant surroundings, great food. The only negative I can mention ( and I must say I had to really think hard to come up with one) is that I have tasted better Caesar salads. Everything else was perfect. I, personally ordered the Halibut, and I must say it was excellent.

I was lucky enough to be taken here for a meal in March - what a beautiful view! The food was delicious and service helpful and friendly. I really enjoyed that whilst this is definitely a more upscale restaurant, there is little pretense and it is a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

This is a well-known restaurant in West Vancouver. It has a spectacular view looking over Burrard Inlet and back to Vancouver. The food is good, with a strong emphasis on seafood. The alder-grilled salmon is a speciality.

We had the salmon trio, Cesar Salad, wine, desert, and coffee. Total cost of meal was $136 Canadian. The view cannot be beat, the ambience is very nice, and the hostess was extremely accommodating. The food has potential, but we would probably not order the Salmon Trio again. We have tasted better. The deserts are to die for, pricey but... More
