We stayed at the Wedgewood hotel and spa for the second year in a row to celebrate our anniversary. It’s a beautiful boutique hotel in a great location close To lots of shopping and restaurants. We were greeted by Kirby as we arrived for their...valet service. He’s always very friendly and quick with a joke. Ryan checked us in and was very accommodating to get us a room even though we were early. We have the executive deluxe king room over looking the courthouse and Robson square. We weren’t able to get a reservation for the restaurant but we did enjoy a lovely time at the lounge for lunch and drinks. Raymond was a rock star. He was so personable and friendly. We really enjoyed chatting with him and the wine and beer flights were fantastic as well as some sharables. If you go ask for Raymond ! This is our favourite in the city and we will be backMore

The first of our DineOut Vancouver journey. Started off with a bang with amazing service and fantastic food. Enjoyed that we had an amuse bouche to start with fresh shrimp to whet our palate. Their ricotta mascarpone ravioli trio was amazing. The black truffle beurre...blanc added such an incredible depth of flavour! Wow! Their tuna tartare was super delicious and refreshing. For the entree, we had the cache creek farms Bavette… another show stopper which was incredible. Super tender beef with a delicious peppercorn Demi. We had their local steelhead (perfectly cooked and seasoned) as well as their local mushrooms. Soooo good! We ended off the meal with their apple galette, stick toffee pudding and house made sorbets. Can’t go wrong with any of these incredible desserts! The cardamom ice cream is a refreshing twist with the apples :) I can’t wait to come back again!More

Service was optimal. Waiters always attentive. Shrimp sandwich was absolutely delicious. Soup was, too. This special English ambience is hard to find with its comfortable chairs. Prices surprisingly reasonable for the setting. Noise level peaked at 1:00 pm, but that was expected. Will come back...soon.More

Bacchus. Oh yes, we have gone there over the years for special occasions and last night was one of them. As usual, everything was perfect. The table. The ambience, the piano player. The food & beverages. But I write this review because of our server,...Ted. He was the most charming, most efficient, most effective, celebration enabler we’ve had in several countries over the past few months. He really did contribute to our pleasure in our party of 4 celebrating a birthday, and we thank him for that!More

My husband, Allen Lynch, and I celebrated Christmas with a lovely dinner at Bacchus Restaurant on December 25th. The service was impeccable and the food was lovely. We spent the night at the Wedgewood Hotel and met a friend for Boxing Day Brunch in Bacchus....Brunch started well – again, we had a capable and friendly server. Unfortunately, when my order (Smoked Salmon Benedict) arrived, it was tepid. I advised the server who took it away and ordered a replacement. By the time the replacement arrived my two dining companions were nearly finished their meals. The replacement was also not hot. The dish arrived with cold salmon, topped with cooled poached eggs, covered with congealed and solidified benedict sauce. The potatoes were hot - heaped on a cold plate. When I complained the server advised the person in charge who came to the table to address the situation. His attention appeared to have nothing to do with customer satisfaction and everything to do with demonstrating that I was not correct. He started by saying that he would ‘walk me through the preparation of this dish’. I was not interested in his explanations as I had had salmon benedict multiple times in various restaurants – none of which had suggested that the meal would or should be tepid, at best. I chose not to order an alternate dish since the others had by then completely finished their breakfasts. I asked instead for a cup of English Breakfast Tea. And I waited a full 10 minutes before the man in charge brought my tea, which he dropped on the table after which he spun on his heel and immediately walked away. He didn’t offer any sugar or milk, or any apologies for the delay. His manner throughout the entire event was officious and unfriendly. The food was a disappointment but could have been remedied with speedy and friendly attention to the situation. The initial server was friendly and as helpful as he could be. The self-important ‘man in charge’ ruined the meal for me and my dining companions. We will choose an alternate restaurant next time around. Natalie ZigarlickMore

Not formally, but this is a place where you can dress up and not feel out of place. I think one of the reasons we got such good service was because we were dressed nicely - a suit for me and a nice dress for my wife.
