This was the first time we went to a Michelin Rated Restaurant and we didn't really know what to expect. The food was incredible and the service provided by Nicholas was fantastic, he helped us with our food and wine choices and everything was perfect....Also, the valet parking was so great. First time for that as well, so much better than finding a place to park. I would highly recommend this restaurant.More

I love the foie gras. The waiter is so helpful. I told her I can't eat a lot, so she stops me at the starters. Definitely worth the experience.

Breakfast was wonderful. We split the American breakfast and that was enough for us. And the day before, after we checked in, we indulged in oysters and champagne. Both days service and food were excellent and the ambience is like none other in the city.

Nice bar tucked in one of the nice treelined streets in Vancouver close to the courts. We went for drinks and hanged over for dinner. Nice bar and drinks. service was okay. Not impressed with the food. My lamb shank was unevenly warm and a...dry texture. That could be done better. Drunk patrons may not be paying attention. assume they might be having a small kitchen. This place was recommended by our lawyer friend. Will return for drinks for sure.More

Stay as far away from this place as possible. Extremely rude hostess, she would rather stand behind the bar texting on her cell phone than pay any attention to customers. Poor signage to find "valet" parking which charges $16 for the first 2 hours, then...the prices of the food are $$$$$. We went there for a special occasion and had our night out ruined by the staff. STAY AWAY FROM HERE!!!More

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.
