Food is always great here, it's the service that is touchy. My husband and I will eat here but won't get served after being seated sometimes for 15 mins and ill have to go grab a hostess to grab our waiter. Other times we eat here and it's fine. I wish I can say it's mostly good experiences but it's... More

We went there on Friday evening, very busy, able to maintain good service. Good food too! Tips: To make reservation, make sure write down any reference/confirmation# or name of the person who took the reservation. Otherwise, you may end up waiting for another 30-45mins like walk-in guest if they cannot locate your reservation. Music is quite loud, if you go... More

One of the few places in Vancouver that service and quality of food are its priority. All servers are well mannered and its best looks and tidy.

The food was quite good. I had the jambalaya as an entree, and yam fries and calamari as a shared appy. Lots of flavour, decent portions. Service was good, the place was busy, but our waitress was by regularly. My only complaint was the noise. Truly I can't see how WCB doesn't have noise complaints from the wait staff.

The food was well prepared and tasty The patio is lovely and bright w a cover to keep the sun out. If the sun does... More

Stopped in for a good meal and was once again not disappointed. The Cajun chicken sandwich was very fresh and all components of the sandwich were perfectly succulent The restaurant was very nicely decorated with a large amount of televisions throughout. The noise level was set perfectly so you could talk comfortably. The server was very friendly and attentive to... More

This seems to be a very popular place. They have seating at the bar along with booths and tables. The menu is varied. My friend had the cod dinner which Wes excellent. I had the halibut tacos which were very good that came with a great sauce to spread in top. Personnel were friendly and accommodating. Recommend.

We like Cactus Club. Sometimes we go to the one on Burrard for a special occasion; frequently we have lunch at the Burnaby branch on Kingsway. So we headed to the Richmond site with a French friend having a reasonable idea what to expect. We were welcomed and given a great table. The food was excellent. Our friend had the... More

Food and service were great! Only concern is that it is hard to have a conversation with someone - too much noise! Got there early for a business meeting (5pm) not many people there yet but within an hour we couldn't carry on a conversation across the table!.

I have been to several Cactus Club Restaurants in British Columbia and must say this one is at the bottom of my list. Although it looked very warm and inviting as I entered inside the lobby area, my partner and I were seated in their covered outdoor area, which was extremely noisy. The acoustics were very poor. Despite the fact... More
