“Amazing Food”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We had a Livingsocial voucher for a set course dinner and we were not sure what to expect but we were amazingly suprised. We were seated at a table in a great window location where we were able to see the planes land and also have a view of the mountains as the sun set.
Our first course was a caprese salad which was artfully created with just the right combination of tomato, mozzarella, greens and balsamic reduction. A very refreshing start to the meal.
The second course featured two grilled scallops as the centerpiece with an amazing combinations of flavours that were too good to be true.
The duck breast/duck confit entree was delightful and the vanilla foam was a great contrast but seemed to pull the flavours together.
The apple tart dessert was served warm with honey gelato. No offence to the tart but the gelato was the star of the dessert in my opinion.
Our server Michelle was extremely knowledgable from the food to the wine to the dessert, her recomendations and suggestions were very appreciated.
can't wait to go back to this location.

The BEST seafood chowder ever! (and I've tried quite a few ...) Yummy bread - very fresh and warm. Healthy and tasty quinoa salad with roasted chicken breast; very generous portion. Good burger, and the kids' pasta dish was a big hit too. Would go to YVR just to eat there!

“Great menu options for healthy travelers”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Globe@YVR incorporates the Fairmont Hotels Healthy Choices menu options, which is not just paying lip service to healthier eating. The extensive alternative menu includes vegetarian, vegan, raw, macrobiotic and gluten free selections - all very well thought out. If you are like us, at the start or finish of your holiday find you'd like to opt for something delicious, filling and healthy, this is the restaurant to choose. The service is very friendly and prompt and for an airport hotel restaurant, the ambience is fine. Only thing missing is a rose wine on the wine list.

The ambiance is airport - overlooking the runways, comfortable and warm. Menu choices are extensive and the service superlative.
