My daughter had crab linguini, fresh pasta with butter sauce loaded with crab-she said it was fantastic. I had a bacon cheeseburger - thick patty well cooked and super juicy, just the right amounts not of fixings. Great atmosphere and amazing service. Definitely a go-to

We were at a 2-day event at BC Place, and had in & out privileges until 3 p.m., so took the opportunity to get away from the expensive fare at BC Place. Fortunately, there was room available at Bogart's, so we had lunch there both...days. The first day we had the beef dip and bacon cheeseburger, which were excellent, and very filling; we didn't need dinner afterwards. The second day we were served by the same great server, and opted for appies, which were also excellent (the corn bread!) We'll be back, hopefully when it's not so crazy busy :)More

We never heard of this place, just come across it by chance. Service was excellent, food was delicious and the prices are decent. Good menu too. For sure will eat there again next time we visit downtown Vancouver.

I was in town for business and went to Bogart's for a bacon cheeseburger and fries. It was delicious! Great service with a casual atmosphere. Would highly recommend!

Bogart’s is attached to the Hampton on Robson, replacing Zachary’s approximately 5 years ago. Despite staying at the Hampton numerous times, I only just attended Bogart’s recently – and even that was a “by chance” encounter. Basically, I’d let nostalgia get the better of me...and I ended up ordering some truly dreadful pizza from a place that used to be good 10+ years ago. Nostalgia can be fun, until it’s not. As such, I was left hungry and it was getting late. The solution? Bogart’s! I arrived at 9:30PM. The establishment was fairly quiet, with just a couple of patrons at the bar and a bunch of cackling banshees sitting in the center of the establishment. Because of how small the dining space is – lucky me – I was seated right next to them. In any event, I perused the rather compact menu and settled on a few items: 1) The mushroom soup because the server said it was “real good;” 2) An order of hot buffalo wings; and, 3) Caesar salad with an addition of prawns. I received my soup first. In all honesty, it didn’t look that special – was oversaturated with parsley flakes – and tasted a lot like Campbell’s “Cream of Mushroom soup.” It was also barely warm. My final two dishes arrived, I kid you not, within a mere 3 minutes of my having received my soup. Timing in the kitchen is obviously an issue here. The buffalo chicken wings were average at best – and I might be a bit generous in saying that. They were large, sure, but they were also dry and overcooked. Likewise, my Caesar Salad was, again, pretty average: The poor thing was over-saturated in dressing, leaving many of the romaine leaves soggy and sad. I liked the use of real parmesan, but I could’ve done without the store-bought croutons. All wasn’t lost, however, as the six prawn add-on was good. Service throughout my meal was fine; however, you could tell that the poor girl was tired as she was nearing the end of her shift. I’ll attribute her fatigue to the length of time it took to receive my bill (15 minutes). In the end, I was quite surprised to see the mostly positive reviews Bogart’s has received on TripAdvisor. The food is 2.5 stars at best. I suspect people come here more for the booze than the food (and, hey, the alcohol has the added bonus of making even mediocre cuisine seem “excellent”). There are much better places nearby . . . including a popular pizza chain adjacent to BC Place. I was almost left yearning for the return of Zachary’s and their tuxedo cake (haha). FOOD: 2/5 SERVICE: 3/5 VALUE: 2.5/5 RECOMMENDATION: In my case, Bogart’s was a passable solution to extremely crappy pizza delivery. While the food didn’t blow me away, it was still better than what I’d originally ordered, so I’ll count that as a win of sorts. Would I patronize this establishment again? I doubt it. The space is cramped; the “industrial yet modern design” doesn’t speak to me at all (it just gives Bogart’s a feeling of being unfinished); and the food is just so-so. With a plethora of other options just steps away, why settle for mediocrity unless you absolutely have to?

There was only one satisfactory dish and that was the green salad. The carpaccio was nauseating with truffle oil that was not a match. The French fries were brown and mushy, the steak was flavorless. And they didn’t have but one of the draft beers...they had listed. Don’t eat here.More

I'm staying at the Hampton where this restaurant is the room service. The hotel is down to one of two elevators in service due to renovations. That's not a mystery, and it's well communicated throughout the hotel. Lastnight I had room service and not a...glitch, it was perfect. So tonight, I called again. The person on the phone didn't even want to take my order as he didn't want to get stuck in the elevator, but offered for me to come down and pick it up. I pointed out that I didn't want to get stuck or walk eighteen flights of stairs either. Eventually he took the order, and the food came. The guy (not sure if same one) who delivered didn't take the usual two seconds to check my order was correct (esp since I ordered a steak) or make sure the wine was OK. Also didn't say have a good night or cheers or anything like that. Food was awesome but they forgot the gravy, which I only found out later and would have known had I had two seconds to look before he ran out. I checked the bill and gravy wasn't on it so at least I didn't pay for not getting it. Overall I will say the food has been 5/5. Service yesterday was 5/5 but today was at best a 2/5. So make of that what you will.More

While visiting Vancouver, our hotel’s front desk staff (at the Hampton Inn & Suites, 111 Robson) strongly recommended we try Bogart’s Restaurant / Bar. The food was DELICIOUS; the service was AWESOME—thanks to Brandon!! Every suggestion he made was spot on! We went at least...5 times during our Vancouver stay! Wonderful burgers, fries, spinach/ artichoke dip, varied salads, beef dip sandwich...Fun atmosphere near the BC Place Stadium!More

Found Bogart's by accident not far from our hotel. Called in twice during our brief visit to Vancouver and the meals, drinks and service was excellent.

I feel bad for reviewers who raved about the burger--if they thought the burger was great, that means that they have not eaten good burgers. The burger here was poor quality meat, and overcooked. The fries were decent. Service was efficient. Surely there must be...better burgers in Vancouver!More
