This restaurant truly embodies customer focus. The staff recognised me by my second visit. They always greet me with enthusiasm and genuinely thank me for coming. When our tables have had abnormal requests, they are actually happy to accommodate. The restaurant is clean and the...COVID restrictions are respected professionally. On top of all this, the food is great. The recipes are creative with subtle twists on classic dishes. And the Manager checks in for honest feedback. It is incredibly evident that he cares - about the experience, about the staff, and about continual improvement. My only suggestion is that maybe there could be a QR code at a few spots on the table. Our groups sometimes have to lean over each other to scan the menu or touch each others' phones. Special thanks to the Manager Noli! Thanks for always making sure our groups feel welcomed and even more than that - valued. We will be returning, often.More

Coast Coal Harbour Vancouver Hotel by APA Vancouver Prestons Restaurant not following Covid-19 guidelines 774187539 Before reserving dinner on Sunday, October 11, 2020 we found this statement on the hotel's website: "Servers are adhering to strict safety procedures while serving all food and beverages, including...wearing masks". - Upon arrival we noted that the Front Desk Restaurant Manager was wearing a visor only, without any mask to cover his mouth. We mentioned to him that this was not sufficient protection. - Despite this he continued without a mask for our entire dinner, where he functioned as food server to our table as well. We did not feel safe under those conditions.More

My wife and I had a late dinner here yesterday after a long road trip. I had the Pad Thai, very good. My wife had the Budah Bowl. It was very tasty as well. For desert we had chocolate ganache. Presentation of the desert was...almost too pretty to eat, but we did and it was delicious. Service was good.More
