We stopped into Sylvia's for a coffee and tea with a friend and had a beautiful table overlooking English Bay. This is a hidden gem. It reminded me somewhat of having tea over in the Empress in Victoria. The staff were very friendly even though...More

Having a fine restaurant and lounge at the hotel made the stay at Sylvia even better. Had sit down dinner, room service dinner, and breakfast, all very good. The bar was really nice to come home to after a day on the town. Great friendly...More

Food was good but not outstanding. Excellent service, view and value to the meal. Definitely worth dining here for hotel guests.

Good food in a great setting - especially if you can get a window seat around sunset. There is nothing more romantic than watching the sun go down with a loved one. Excellent staff who are attentive to your every need. Worth the experience.

The Sylvia Hotel at English Bay in Vancouver is a lovely old building with gorgeous ivy on the exterior. However, the food is not good and the kitchen badly needs an overhaul.

Linguini with prawns in tomato sauce was excellent. Sunday evening with a live light jazz duo. Excellent service and ambiance.

Sylvia's was a walk back in time - and seeing Sylvia's history displayed made you feel part of something bigger than yourself. The meal/dessert was exquisite. The Staff were polite, approachable, worked hard and as a team. We were totally delighted and felt "wanted" and...More

we were a group of seniors (24 or so) for brunch. The server Cindy was great!! She was prompt, took all our orders & no mistakes. Food was very good & fast service. No long waits.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
