The biggest problem with the Pink Peppercorn is deciding what to eat. Tonight the scallop appetizer was simply the best, most tasty, most perfectly cooked scallops I've ever had anywhere. Their caesar salad is delicious as well, and you know how few restaurants can make...that claim? Not ordering the salmon wellington however is like going to White Spot & not ordering a burger. I mean, you can, but why would you? The choices are hard to make, especially once you've had the pinot noir gravy. I simply cannot recommend any restaurant higher than this one. Thanks again, Eddy & your team for yet another memory of another fabulous meal.More

Was here for our annual Anniversary dinner and Eddy (executive Chef) did not disappoint. We have been to this restaurant 8-9 times as the food and service is always 5 stars. Following tonights dinner, (I had the evenings special of halibut in a lobster tarragon...sauce) I’m looking for the 6 star button. Hands down one of the best meals I’ve eaten anywhere, ever. This unassuming restaurant has arguably the best seafood dinners in the city. Will definitely return and highly recommend the Pink Peppercorn to anyone looking for a fantastic dinner in Vancouver.More

We have been regular visitors at The Cannery for years and we were so disappointed when it closed almost 10 years ago. As many have mentioned here, the lobster oil/balsamic mixture with their sourdough bread was always a great start to any meal. So after...their closure, we heard PP opened up in our neighbourhood. We thought about trying it out as we heard many of the Cannery staff were now there. That was good to hear. With some restaurants that did an overhaul or revival, they do not match the expectations of the original. This one did except....(will get to that later). This was a birthday dinner on a Thursday night. As restaurants reopen amidst COVID restrictions lifted we were a bit hesitant of going out to any restaurant. Parking is plentiful in the surrounding neighbourhood and upon entering TeddyBear greeted us with his glistening eyes and warm, soft demeanour. We sterilized our heads at the front door and was escorted to our reserved spot. Our 2 teens were with my wife and I. They gazed around the room and commented on the non-Cannery decor. That's OK. We were there for the food. After 5 minutes of settling in, TeddyBear brought us our long-awaited for bread and oil. Mmmmm. Memories came flooding back in of great meals and views of the Vancouver harbour. The kids selected an appetizer of calamari and we chose 3 mains to share: Arctic Char with vegetables on a lobster sauce and mash (special of the day) Scallops and prawns on basmati rice and cream sauce and Cedar plank wild salmon EVERYTHING was outstanding. The kids raved about the salmon and perfectly cooked veggies (yup - my kids love veggies!) and we gobbled up each piece of calamari (their tartar/tzatziki sauce was very good). The portions are on the larger size and we had to pack almost a full meal home. Price-wise they are on the higher side. None of us could fit another mouthful to even consider the dessert menu. We waited 10 years before trying PP and we kicked ourselves for that. Don't wait. P.S. Now getting back to the 'look and feel'. The first big difference is you are not on the shoreline with the amazing views of the North Shore. Rather you are in a wood-filled pub/tavern type atmosphere with seafaring collectibles strewn around the restaurant (ropes, plastic lobsters, brass this and that). This still doesn't take away the top-notch food and quality you will enjoy here. Highly recommended.More

Quaint old fashioned restaurant that looks to be dated from the 70’s. It is approximately 3.5 miles from downtown Vancouver. The restaurant anchors a street strip of smaller shops. The interior is comfortable. And, the service is attentive and friendly. The portion sizes are enormous...with the most delicious seafood. We split the scallops which were perfect. The entrees were served with vegetables and a large portion of mashed potatoes. The fish portions had to be 8oz each. Perfect In Every way except too much. Wasteful if you don’t have a place to take it home. My suggestion would be to eat very little all day if you are planning to go here for dinner.More

booked party of four for Saturday, 6pm. Upon being seated, there was only a party of eight seated. We had a great time talking with server. upon waiting for the food, we were told that the chef was from previous restaurant called, the Cannery. There...are a few kitchen staff and waiters who have been with this resaurant when it opened. Consistency in the food and service due to the same staff? A very good possibility. Started off with bread with a lobster oil in balsamic vinegar. We ordered Calamari as an appetizer. It did not disappoint. it was lightly battered and came hot. Portion was very large. we did not even finish the bread after the calamari. My wife and older each ordered the salmon plank dinners. Younger one ordered the chicken dinner. I had the prawns and scallop dinner. Fish was moist and tasty. chicken was tender. prawns and scallops were fresh and cooked to perfection. Great portions of four vegetables...broccolli, asparagus, carrot and half a red pepper. we all took home leftovers. nice touch of a creme brule for my wife as it was her birthday. it was a wonderful, quaint and quiet dinner experience. there was about four parties dining when we left. we would definitely return.More

Before it closed, the Cannery was our "go to" place for special occasions. Heard about the Pink Peppercorn, decided it was time to try it. Well worth the wait. Service was great and the food is exceptional. Calamari for a starter, excellent. I had the...sable fish, others had scallops & prawns, salmon Wellington, oysters, lamb, all said their dinners were fantastic. The only downside, my daughter found the tartar trio to spicy to enjoy.More

I was pleasantly surprised that the chef from The Cannery was at the Pink Peppercorn. I'd driven past this restaurant numerous times but had never been. We planned a dinner for my mother's birthday here. Service was excellent. Every staff member from the gentleman who...seated us, to our server and even the other servers walking around were all friendly, accommodating and cheeky (in a good and entertaining way.) We had a calamari appetizer which was fresh, tender and sizeable. Entrees ordered included the salmon Wellington, sauteed scallops and prawns and a daily special of herb crusted halibut with a lobster cream sauce, mushrooms and prawns. The salmon Wellington was absolutely delicious and a huge portion. The scallops and prawns were simple and show-cased the quality of the seafood. I felt the halibut was the weakest dish with the lobster sauce being too sweet for my taste which overpowered the halibut. It was still a beautiful plate. I had debated ordering the other daily special which was sablefish but got fixated on the lobster cream sauce because..well, it is a lobster cream sauce. I feel if I had gone with my gut and gotten the sablefish with beurre blanc, I would have enjoyed the dish more since I typically find halibut to be a bland fish. Everyone had to take some food home because we were stuffed from bread, lobster oil and calamari. This place is a hidden gem in East Van. Prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity of food received plus the excellent service provided by staff. I would highly recommend this restaurant.More

Our daughter and family has just moved to Cedar Cottage area and we were looking for a nice restaurant within walking distance. This popped up on TA. We liked the reviews and the menu and walked over without a reservation. In a word or two...the restaurant is outstanding. We were greeted at the door and it was a Friday night but they welcomed us and found us a great table. The two servers who waited on us couldn’t have been more friendly and welcoming. The menu was explained to us and we both ordered the Chef’s Creation for the day which was locally caught halibut. It was delicious. The serving are big. We shared the pecan pie desert. It was excellent and great decaf coffee tasted great with it. We expect that this will be our “go to” restaurant when we visit which is often. It was a very enjoyable experience.More

If you're asking what I had, it must have been a Caesar salad. You need to use more words.
