“Enjoyable and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We enjoyed a very nice dinner here on our final evening in Vancouver. The restaurant is beautiful with high ceilings, sweeping decorations, and plenty of light. The staff were friendly and helpful, and didn't make us feel uncomfortable when we didn't order wine or dessert. We started with the green salad (blueberries and pistachio nuts were nice touches) and crab tacos (superb). Both of us had the salmon which was beautifully prepared, and accompanied by generous portions of grilled tomatoes and sauteed greens. Altogether a great evening.

“Good food, overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Yew excels at expertly crafting seafood dishes and they have a good selection of wines by the glass, but the food is overpriced and the wine is twice as expensive as you would expect.

“Not your typical hotel restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

YEW, a great surprise in the lobby of the Four Seasons. Gratziella our bar tender was great! The sea food tower for two was awesome! Great wine and after dinner drink selection. Don't forget to try the Chocolate Obsession desert. It's fantastic!!

“Must GO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

1. SERVICE: Perfect. All staff was attentive and knew everything that was going on. Very knowledgeable, professional and had training in proper serving protocol.
2. WINE: A good selection of the best wines. We had our favorite and if you go on sunday like we did, ALL wine by the bottle is 50% off.
3. FOOD: Must try: Fish tacos,shrimp, and oysters to start. Must also have the seafood risotto, and/or the salmon dish. BEST EVER.
4. ATMOSPHERE: Stylish, modern, casual yet elegant. Go dress up or wear a ball cap, just depends on what you want.
5. Had a semi private room, great for business meetings or small occasions where you want some atmosphere but privacy as well!!!

Cannot say enough for the fine food at this restaurant. Well worth EVERYdollar and highly recommend this for any person who loves quality.
