“Pretty good”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

The food is pretty good. Service was average. We had just gotten engaged when we arrived, and we told the hostess and our waitress. This may very well be my own displaced expectation, but neither of them made any gesture to welcome us in our celebration or help make it special. So, decent food, but not really individualized service.

“A poseur of 'fine dining' in Vancouver, Wa.”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

As locals, we have dined at Tommy O's on several special occasions, mostly because it's one of the few nicer restaurants in Vancouver.
On one visit three months ago, our dining experience was a total disaster......terrible service and cold food served, and expensive, as well. The manager, realizing what had occurred and without our asking, gave us a certificate to return for a free dinner. We were hesitant to return, however, we did return and had essentially the same experience. We can't imagine what happened at Tommy O's, but we won't return for at least six months. Perhaps by then the management will have their server problems sorted out. Tommy O's, you must know the importance of word of mouth in a small venue such as Vancouver. We will miss you, but we won't be seeing you for quite awhile.

“Rude chef!”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

After hearing so many wonderful things about this place from family and friends, my sis and I decided to go there on Sunday for an early dinner on April 29th after spending the day at the 50+ Conference at the Hilton. We complained to our waitress that our halibut was cold and so she must have said something to the chef. We were sitting outside as it was a sunny day and the chef came storming outside and was very confrontational. He was a younger guy and it was very upsetting to experience such a hostile person in such a nice setting. This guy truly had an axe to grind! We will NEVER be back. We had ordered drinks, appetizers and a meal. We left very upset.

“Great Menu and Decor”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

This Hawaiian restaurant offers delicious meals that are more haute cuisine than clique pineapple chicken. We had the best oysters on the half shell that I've ever had followed by really interesting and beautifully served meals. The wait staff are very professional but hip and fun too. This is a good destination for most types of meals (I can't speak to the little kids' menu, but it's casual enough to try it).

“Delicious food and nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

My family of 5 ate here and everyone loved there food. I got the pork and it was sooo good. Husband got the 2 types of sushi and loved both. Cucumber salad was awesome. Really glad we found this place on Tripadvisor.
