“Horrible Service”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Our family has been to this restaurant numerous times over the years and the service quality is definitely declining. We use to spend our special occasions from birthdays to anniversaries at this restaurant, however after the continuous poor service and extremely long waits even for water, we definitely won't be back! We would understand the wait time if your restaurant was completely seated, but on more the one visit our waitress and busser were busy chatting or taking care of other tables. We rarely complain but the service is just not what it was and so brought the service issues to the manager’s attention and the response they gave pretty much explains in my mind why the service quality is were it is. I don’t see the value at dining here as there are much better restaurants in Vancouver with comparable prices, views and BETTER service.

“Over Priced”
Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

I ate here with 1 other person and the first thing that hit us both was the prices.
Maybe I am just not used to big city prices coming from Vancouver Island.
But I have eaten at 5 star restaurants with there pricing but much much better views and ambience.
The food was ok but nothing outstanding.
I guess for the area if you want this hill top view you pay.

“Somewhere to Feel Special”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

The ambiance, the views, the food... whether with a group or as a romantic couple, this is a perfect meal in a perfect place. Even when I went with a group of 12... everything was fabulous. A great place to feel special.

Beautifully situated high up on Burnaby Mountain with stunning views over both the water of the inlet and the city of Vancouver.

Comfortabe, clean, and a general atmosphere of enjoyable ambience. The staff are friendly, helpful, and efficient.

Good menu choice if you like meat or fish. The food is well presented and perfectly cooked. It is not cheap but if you take everything into consideration it is good value for money.

There is also a good range of drinks available. Soft drinks and cocktails are priced about the same as anywhere else. The wine list is extensive and has many interesting options but the prices are high (I seem to recall that the cheapest basic bottle was about $40.00).

To sum up: IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY BOTH AN ENJOYABLE VISUAL AND GASTRONOMIC EXPERIENCE (and if you don't mind spending a few quid, euros, dollars, or whatever) THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO.

“Love the Short Ribs”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

The view is stunning and the food is very good. We have been numerous times. Our favourite dish is the short ribs. Not a big fish eater but the salmon is good too.
