The view on Vancouver city is great. Fish is very good (salmon trio), desserts are ok. Minus point: beers could be a little colder.

I was taken there by relatives who live locally and they couldn't have chosen better for their overseas visitor. It was very well patronised, but the service was fast and efficient. They had a post Christmas 'Dine Vancouver' menu - three courses for $40, all of which were delicious. Although I chose the fish options, one of our group had... More

Have been going to the Salmon House since it opened. Have always enjoyed it. However, find the menu now a bit pretentious. I know it is a seafood restaurant, but they could have at least a good steak (without any type of seafood). Portions are a bit small, making this a bit expensive for what you get. Outstanding service!!!!!!!!

Nice spacious place with comfortable seating, excellent views from the North Shore across the city. Unlike a typical "fine dining" decor - pays some homage to native art and design. Been around for a while and outlasted its competitors for a reason. Great food - would strongly recommend the seafood tower to get a taste of everything between two.

Excellent menu choices! Lovely view and great service. The Thai prawn spring rolls in particular were very tasty.

This landmark just celebrated its 40th anniversary. It may not be at the top of restaurant game anymore, but it is a grand dame. A grand dame on tough times, so expect to tip for the coat check (many classless people wore their coats into the restaurant - for shame!) and pay for the bread and butter (which, at $3,... More

Very interesting choices for brunch. Everyone enjoyed their meals. They were very accommodating about making personal choices an option. The view of Vancouver is worth the price of the meal.

Had dinner with family in the lounge area. Nice table nice view but that was all. One waiter and one bus person for the 40 odd people led to slow service once the initial beverage and food order was taken. Had to attend bar for second order after an hour and third orders. Lamb was delicious but the salmon trio... More
