Had dinner reservations here last night. Arrived on time and let the hostess know about our reservation. Waited 40 minutes, watched another party of 4 arrive and be seated without a hostess even approaching my group again as we waited. After watching that, I stepped outside, called Hy's Steakhouse and booked a reservation there instead. Walked back in, gathered my... More

First of all I wish I took a picture of what I'm about to describe very briefly, however I was so disgusted I could not even look at it!! It's New Year's Eve and we buy tickets at what I thought was an upscale restaurant... with the purchase of our tickets dinner was included or should I say hair! Our... More

Great food, server was great. Had to really frustrate the manager to turn the heater off and keep it off... I'm not too hard to please but the high top table with the heater above it was absolute torture. Ruined a promising visit on an amazing night after the Christmas Market.

Roof top was recommended and did not disappoint. The waitress was friendly and attentive. Loved all the gas fireplace ambiance, plenty warm up on the roof (even with the snowfall). Mac and cheese stix were so yummy- I wasn't even hungry, but the waitress implied they were worth it-yup, she was right! Good drinks, as well.

We went here for drinks around Christmas. What a fabulous roof. Cool look with lots of gas fires under glass. Very hip. We loved the music too. Great friendly service. I hear it's great in the summer when they open the roof.

The magic of a classic steakhouse, but with a decidedly contemporary twist. In-house aged rare cuts of beef, tableside Caesar salads, flambes, flaming coffees, and more. While he may find it familiar, it's definitely not your Daddy's steak house!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
