LIFT is located at the end of a pier in Cole Harbour and it's like floating on the water while you dine. Pricey but nice and you can always just stop in at the bar to experience the view for a cheaper visit. Out of the way place that not everyone knows about so it's a great local adventure if... More

Went to Lift with some trepidation as the reviews I read were mixed. The location is a (multi) million dollar view and set up. We arrived and found that it was happy hour at the bar and we gave it a try. Excellent selection of food and drink for a happy hour and extremely well priced. Saw a variety of... More

We ate here on a cold rainy January night on a Monday and the restaurant was still quite full. The food was delicious and the menu had some very interesting selections (kangaroo?!). We chose the Dine Out Vancouver menu and we were thrilled with our choices. Ample portions, great variety and the tastes were lovely! I will definitely be back... More

We checked in here for brunch on our walk along the sea wall. We were lucky enough to get the last window table and really enjoyed the views. Both brunch meals we ordered (traditional eggs benny and chorizo with poached eggs) were delicious.

We tried the Lift with friends on Saturday nite. Sat upstairs on the covered, heated patio. Food was excellent. Our service was great. Had a very enjoyable evening and will return in sunny weather to enjoy their outdoor patio. Great views!

The food was terrible (plain and had zero flavor) and the portions were sad, not to mention when we moved from the bar to table at happy hour they failed to mention that happy hour doesn't exist once you're at a table. All in all the place sucked.

Tried this place for dinner with family and I loved the view, service and taste of the food. The only downside was that the quantity of food was too little for the price you pay.

We had dinner her recently during Dine Out Vancouver. The location is spectacular - right on the water in Coal Harbour. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. This is an up-scale restaurant and well worth a visit!. If you're looking for a great restaurant for a special event, this is it!

The setup is great but it cannot all be around the view. The hostess greeting is cold and we almost walk out.... the food was ordinary, the beer was good, and the server was just borderline. Lots of potential, get it together.

Thank susansmithe234

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.
