We had a mixed evening at Italian Kitchen. First the good - wonderful service! Truly, the entire staff provided very, very good service. Checked on us many times, kept drinks refilled, even sent over a complimentary dessert. The staff was absolutely lovely. They also seemed to be working really well together. This was balanced by the fact that the food... More

We had a very nice experience: sizeable pasta portions, affordable wine list, and prompt service. Especially for the area that it's in, this is a well priced place to have a meal.

We visited here after a tip from our taxi driver, it's only 5 minutes from the Four Seasons Hotel. Very busy, tables closely packed but food was average. Price was reasonable for downtown Vancouver but nothing to excite.

The decor here was classy and elegant, with sultry upbeat music playing in the background. It was quite busy on the weekend so I would recommend making a reservation beforehand. We were seated on the upper floor facing a floor-to-ceiling glass window complete with a white tablecloth and flickering candle in the center, which was super romantic. Our particular server...

We stayed at the Fairmont (Georgia and Burrard), which made this almost as close as just eating in the hotel. How lucky can you get to have one of the best restaurants within a stone's throw of your hotel? The menu was excellent and the pricing mid range. Be warned that it does a lot of business and is extremely... More

I had walked by this downtown Vancouver restaurant many times and finally decided to see what all the locals have been talking about. I now wish I had done so much earlier. The food is fantastic. Servers are very attentive, knowledgeable and quite friendly, but not in a fake or overbearing way. A bit on the pricey side but well... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
