Visited this restaurant and greatly enjoyed their birthday special. A three course meal comprising New England Clam Chowder, Sable fish with FRESH vegetables and a gorgeous unique dessert. Superb service as well. The food was exceptionally well prepared, tasting fresh and flavourful without being overbearing. One had the impression that it was made to order and HAD NOT been hanging...

Salmon House has been around for ages and they're pros. Restaurant looks great, very professional and gracious server. Bit disappointed that in this fine dining restaurant they don't provide bread for the table. Plus some of the appetizers were really on the high side, pricewise (e.g. fantastic scallop appetizer.....but the price is for ONE twoonie-sized scallop). Our mains were really... More

My husband and I went to the Salmon House on the Hill to celebrate his birthday on August 8th. For the price we found the food to be mediocre at best and not worth the cost. I had the Haida Gwaii alder grilled smoked sable fish with sautéed red peppers, chick peas, kale and calamari. The fish was just ok.... More

This is the best place to go and treat yourself to a special evening. We were there on Sunday night to celebrate my birthday. It could not have been more perfect. The wine was great, the bread was fresh, the smoked salmon pate was so tasty, the three salmon entree was memorable and the cheese cake dessert was unforgettable. To... More

Great views, ambiance is second to none. Service was very good and the food was excellent. Try the two tier choices for dinner for two. You will not be disappointed. Dessert? Wow, don't miss it!

The first time that my wife and I ate here was at least 40 years ago. It is as good now as it was then. An impressive view of the harbour, great decor, great food and wonderful service. A good place to take your spouse or date. An impressive place for clients. It is expensive. There was three of us... More

What a beautiful seeting for this excellent restaurant. The service is second to none with top of the line fresh seafood and salmon. The presentation, freshness and taste is exceptional. My husband had the Lobster ravioli with wild mushrooms, and could not stop talking about the quality of the food. It is very pricey but to be expected for that... More

Brought the father in law for his 79th birthday. He was very happy! They even put a candle his name and fake age on the cake. The only disappointment was the soup portion was rather small. My meal is sable fish was amazing. The Inlaws shared plate was impressive and fulling.
