“Fantastic Views!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We took one of our Mexican Employees for lunch and the view could not have been better. It was sunny and clear skies and she had an awesome time. We had a great time and she said it was the best experience so far visiting Vancouver. The only thing that was a little bit slow was the food. You have to have lots of time if you come to this restaurant.
We waited an hour for our appetizers to arrive. Another half hour for our main meal. But....the food was great and the waiter was awesome. Very friendly (maybe because we were all Ladies :) LOL !

“Dining with a great view”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were there as two couples to celebrate a farewell dinner. We did this here just 7 years ago for a similar event and had good memories.

Okay! The sight on Top of Vancouver is really worth the visit. Especially when you are lucky with the weather and have a table close to the windows.

Service was very friendly and helpful for the menu choices and the food came in short time to the table. They recommended a red wine growing in British Columbia(!), a speciality of this restaurant. Try it, it's very tasteful! Quality of the food and cooking were okay. If you look at the prizes, you maybe have a high expectation. This is not what you get, but again, good quality.

We paid for 4 people about CD$350 with the tip. Be aware that the fee for the elevator is free if you eat at the restaurant. I recommend to make a reservation for dinners at Saturday.

“Worth it”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

My partner and I went for a romantic meal here and the experience was great. I think it is fair to say that you are paying for the location and views rather than the food. The food is decent, but you would not be happy paying that much for it in a street-level restaurant. Having said that, it is definitely worth going because the views are spectacular. Unlike some other reviewers, we found the atmosphere really great. It was a Monday night but the place was still buzzing. Service a little slow - they need to watch that - but friendly. Starters of calamari and baked brie were good, steak main excellent, ribs main ok, but could have been better. Poached pear dessert - tasted like it came out of a tin to be honest, ie was not poached, and ice cream dessert fine. Cocktails were well-mixed, wine list was surprisingly reasonably priced.

“Great view but lacks inside”
Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoyed the cool elevator up, and we were greatly promptly by friendly hostess'. We had made a reservation and they sat us right by the window. Overall the experience was nice. Just a few things. Air conditioning was pumping! Had to wear my jacket through the meal. The bathrooms were awful. Every stall was gross. Had to use the least awful one. Our appy was ok, very bland beef carpaccio, and not a very extensive drink list. Lots of wine though. The service wasn't the best. Didn't check on our meals until we were almost done and took way too long to bring our bill by when we were in a hurry. Other then these thigs, good dining!
