This place is very comfortable and quiet. There are a couple of good items on the menu, like the Brussels sprouts appetizer and the sablefish. Portions were also large, and could be shared by two, especially with an appetizer. But nothing special here.

This is the place where I learned to like Brussels Sprouts. I managed to get over the unpleasant physical reaction I used to get from that family of vegetables, and several months ago I saw someone order the brussels sprouts appy and ordered it. Now I order them anywhere, but these might be the best. Broiled in salt, cheese, lemon,... More

Enjoyed an early morning breakfast, very busy spot recommend a reservation for more than 2. Classic eggs Benedict and eggs Benedict with tomato and avocado. Made as ordered comes with hash potatoes and fruit. $20/person well worth it. Will definitely return next visit.

We were staying at the Marriott Pinnacle Downtown and after a full day we didn't really want to go back out for dinner so we decided to give Showcase a try. We were glad we did. The food selections were interesting and delicious. In fact I asked if the restaurant was run by an outside vendor but it is run... More

Checked in a bit late at the Marriott and just went downstairs to Showcase. Seated quickly, the views of the city lights and atmosphere were relaxing. My wife loved her grilled cheese sandwich, which was more than you think, thick bread and tomato inside, with a bowl of soup. I had the Atlantic Char which was delicious. If your here... More

Had a few meals here while staying at the hotel. The food is very good and the service even better. The waitrons are very helpful in providing advice on the dish to suite your appetite, taste and mood. I found the continental breakfast pretty expensive though.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
