Went here during our holiday after reading other reviews. Found the staff very welcoming and the food and wine were fantastic. Great atmosphere. Would definately recommend people to go here.

One of the best dining experiences! The location we went to was on the water in Coal Harbor. The service, food and view were all fantastic!!

Food was trendy & tasty. Staff seemed young, inexpirienced, not fully informed with menu. The venue is very nice, modern, nouveau-riche feel. Well- stocked bar. Drinks were tasty & inventive. Definitely a fun place to go with friends.

Cactus club is good to serve what you expect at any of their locations. Burners are my favourite but messy to eat.

There are a bunch of Cactus Clubs in Vancouver. They are all pretty nice - big open restaurants with a lively crowd. The happy hours are fun with some good things available at good prices. The one on Robson is a bit smaller than the others but it's a fun mix of people. It's not Vancouver's greatest restaurant, but it's... More

The Cactus Club chain seems to be popular in Vancouver, each with the same menu but slightly different character. Stopped in for a quick lunch on Robson. Service was adequate but friendly. We tried the tuna club sandwich and the shortrib sandwich. While the tuna was good, the shortrib sandwich, though nicely grilled, fell a little short on flavor. Good... More

I visited the Cactus Club on a busy Wednesday evening. I have a short wait for a table but was pleased to end up with an outside table which was covered and heated. Inside seemed rather packed and very not! The food was good. Not gourmet but tasty and freshly cooked. The lettuce wraps starter was delicious and I will... More

Was at Cactus Club earlier last week for dinner. Good meal and weather was nice, so got to eat on the patio. Good service with a smile, by the time we left, the restaurant was full, and the service stayed the same, will be back.
