In hotel restaurant with pricy menu and some quirky problems. Firstly, the chairs and tables are not matched for height and I found myself sitting too low, despite being a reasonably tall woman. Was advised they were working on rectifying the mis-match on their chairs and offered the option of sitting on a folded table cloth (no thanks). We ordered... More

We came with family to celebrate a late birthday. The meal was excellent, especially the lamb shank, which was tender and very tasty. Our server was attentive, pleasant and smiling. Prices are fairly expensive, but presentation is imaginative and appealing. On the downside we were seated very close to the fireplace, and it was overly warm so we asked for... More

Dont waste your money bad quality food what was supposed to be a aged new york steak with truffle jus was really a cheap sirloin with thick gravy that tasted like a packet gravy from the store.Very slow service took 30minutes to bring the wine out.

Good food and friendly staff, appetizers are excellent. Easily accessible for people who are in a wheelchair, or have trouble walking. There is an elevator in the garage up to the restaurant.

Ate here for lunch. The food was great and the location/ views are lovely. However our waitress was terrible. She either didn't want to be there or was understaffed (although there appeared to be lots of staff around). She was very curt and "efficient" in taking our order. We had to ask for drinks menu, she forgot to bring out... More

The food is wonderful, the service impeccable, the view goes on forever & if you are very lucky, at your birthday dinner a long time staff member will sing Happy Birthday to you in Italian! This restaurant is our favourite place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, anything where friends & family come together.

Had a very pleasant supper at Pacific Prime which exceeded my expectations for a hotel restaurant. My wife and enjoyed both our appetizers and main courses. Service was decent however bottle of white wine we ordered could have been colder. My steak was perfectly cooked and the exotic mushrooms were not just portobello mushrooms. Would recommend.

It's difficult to understand how this restaurant could be so horrible. They have a great location, beautiful building and fantastic staff. But the menu is very small focusing on steaks, they are expensive and they are not impressive. The cuts find some way to be chewy and the flavor was nondescript. If you want to focus your menu and be... More

I am sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your steak. I am very surprised to hear it as we use 63 Acres beef which is a high end beef that is pasture raised on a few small ranches in BC and finished on grain for 30 days to provide top quality and more flavor than other steaks available. We made... More
