The food, wine and service were impeccable. The only thing lacking was some daylight, windows and fresh air. Cool place when it's bleak and rainy, but in the summer you might want to opt for somewhere you can get out and enjoy the weather.

We ate at Yew our first night in Vancouver and it was delightful. The restaurant manager is outstanding. He is Mr. Personality and was very attentive. He had great suggestions for other terrific dining and drinking establishments in Gastown and was happy to share them. Our waiter was equally helpful and professional. The food was very nice. We had paella and fish along with a few fresh oysters as an appetizer. My dining companion asked for a few gnocchi to try ( even though they did not come with her dinner). The chef piled on the gnocchi and she had her wish for some tasty pillows. The portions were more than plenty and we stuffed ourselves! I loved the fireplace and large trestle table next to it. I can imagine that being used as perhaps a community table of some sort. The dining room itself is decorated very nicely. I did however have a weird feeling in the dining room because the ceilings were so high. I think the atmosphere suffered a bit due to the high ceilings. It really lost intimacy and really felt like a commercial space vs. a homey place. But that was minor in comparison to the terrific service.

We enjoyed a very nice dinner here on our final evening in Vancouver. The restaurant is beautiful with high ceilings, sweeping decorations, and plenty of light. The staff were friendly and helpful, and didn't make us feel uncomfortable when we didn't order wine or dessert. We started with the green salad (blueberries and pistachio nuts were nice touches) and crab tacos (superb). Both of us had the salmon which was beautifully prepared, and accompanied by generous portions of grilled tomatoes and sauteed greens. Altogether a great evening.

Yew excels at expertly crafting seafood dishes and they have a good selection of wines by the glass, but the food is overpriced and the wine is twice as expensive as you would expect.

YEW, a great surprise in the lobby of the Four Seasons. Gratziella our bar tender was great! The sea food tower for two was awesome! Great wine and after dinner drink selection. Don't forget to try the Chocolate Obsession desert. It's fantastic!!
