While the restaurant is closed for renovations, the in room dining menu was still available. The food was excellent and quickly turned around before we had to run to the hockey game.

We really enjoy this special little restaurant up on the main lobby level of the Weston Grand. Even if you're not staying there it's so worth a visit, whether for a meal or just evening drinks and great appetizers. The menu has a variety of excellent offerings for any time of the day or evening. It's like a well-kept secret... More

Hidden Tasting Bar is the only food and beverage outlet at the Westin Grand Vancouver. There's a small bar area which opens to the somewhat informal dining room (it can be hard to distinguish where one begins and ends). Food is available all day - snacks and a reasonably large menu. I had breakfast at the hotel on two occasions... More

Nice hotel lounge with a large drink menu but limited food menu. They do have a breakfast buffet but it seems expensive and the area is full of small restaurants and waffle houses.

Visited the restaurant over lunch with some work colleagues. There were very few patrons other than ourselves. Yet, the food took 30 minutes to deliver. Water was served sparingly. Food was underseasoned and generally bland. Do not order the mussels. Will not be going to this restaurant again.

We actually experienced "Pop up Patio" which is the outdoor counterpart of this bar/social lounge. Service was great and staff was courteous. Drinks were a tad expensive as they are at most venues like that. Even a drink deal or a happy hour would potentially be fitting. Thanks!

Comfortable seating, good food, nice view of the library, open and bright, with professional service. The food presentation was gorgeous. I was a bit disappointed with the taste of the crème brulee that sounded better than it was, but we were pleased otherwise. Prices are on par with similar places. We thought the groupon coupon was good value. We went... More

Ordered the flat bread appetizer, salmon dinner and the crème brule for dessert. The flat bread was delicious but there was too much sauce and made the bread in the middle really soggy and fall apart. The salmon was really dry and lacked seasoning. The crème brule was really good though and so were the drinks.

We were staying at the Westin Grand, and wanted to treat a friend to an early evening meal. Drinks and nachos were a great way to start the evening. All 3 of us enjoyed our meals. Service was excellent with table water being provided without even being requested, and regularly topped up. The ambience was perfect with background music allowing... More

Having tried a number of restaurants in Vancouver during our stay, we were unable to get a reservation at a very highly recommended Asian restaurant so we wandered about looking for other options. Eventually our meandering search lead to Hidden. In-hotel restaurants generally are okay but rarely anything to rave about. We walked in and upstairs, liked the decor, the... More
