We came here for a lovely dinner, because it's our tradition to do ONE nice dinner on every trip we do. On this trip, I picked this restaurant and was NOT disappointed. I still to this day, daydream of that black olive puree on my dish. My husband started with a local beer and I had a dirty vodka martini.... More

We went here for the very first time for our 32nd anniversary dinner. The view on the ride up to the top was great but magnificent on the way down with the sun setting. The service was pleasant & the food was delicious. Yes, it was a little on the expensive side but not really when you consider the gondola... More

Take the time to ride up to the top to get a FANTASTIC view of Vancouver BC. This is a MUST SEE attraction.

Service was very good and considering no cost for the ride up the mountain the overall cost for dinner was reasonable. Limited menu... More

This restaurant is surrounded by windows which gives you a view from 3 sides. They have great cocktails and the salmon burger was delicious. The wait staff was friendly and prices were reasonable. Taking in the views while relaxing with a great meal and cocktail was a wonderful experience.

My husband & I took Dad & his GF to the Observatory for his birthday. If you make reservations your gondola ride is free. However there seems to be a fee for chairlifts or elevator ride up the wind generator . Beautiful & scenic. Unforgettable location. However the food was a let down. Although beautifully presented it was just ok.... More

The view was amazing but the food was just ok. Glad we did it but would not recommend it because of the prices. I had the halibut which was good
