Me and wife came for our one year wedding anniversary. Got there at 7pm just as the sun was going down, the views were amazing of Vancouver and Burnaby. Food was excellent and perfect size portion for me. The waitress we had was very nice and friendly and earned her tip. However there was a waiter who I noticed was... 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

Unfortunately it was very foggy so I couldn't see any views, but seeing the Grizzly Bears was sure the highlight of my trip

The wind turbine which is called the eye of the wind can be accessed by asks ride gondola and then chair lift.It has an elevator which takes you to the observation area which is encased in glass.You get a beautiful view of Vancouver from there.

All food and wine we had were delicious. Especially lamb and wine were great. The wine we selected wasn't available any more and we were offered a more expensive bottle of the same grape for the price of the cheaper wine. Very nice move. What keeps me away from giving 5 stars was that our table wasn't ready when arrived... More

The view was great, service was excellent, food was mediocre at best, considering the entree prices, the food isn't worth, the halibut was way over cooked and dry, the chicken breast wrapped in bacon( bacon was not fully cooked), lamb didn't taste like lamb, flavours are bland, wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

Great service, combined with beautiful views made the window seats a treasure but the menu offering outdid it all. We each had a different entree and the sturgeon with black olive puree was the star with halibut, chicken and tenderloin a close second.
