Staying at the Century Plaza, decided to try the restaurant here. Given Covid it's only pick up so got their Prime Rib burger with cheddar & caramelized onions, served with hand cut fries. WOW. I've had burgers all over the planet and most of the...time they're not all that interesting. THIS was a cut WAY above. Outstanding beef (it said "prime rib" burger and it was!) Absolutely dressed perfectly. Real cheddar. Great onions. Excellent bun. Seriously great burger. THEN I had their chocolate mousse with caramel cake and gelato. OMG. Died and gone to heaven. Over-the-top. Again - a knock out. If you stay at the hotel, you'll be really pleased you got food from C-Prime. Looking forward to when Covid allows us to eat in the restaurant itself. Bravo.More

Came for a casual dinner - picked this place because I've never tried it before, and the menu looked okay. Realized it doesn't have many reviews and doesn't seem that popular. Food: I had the beef tenderloin as a main and the toffee pudding for...dessert. The beef was tender, but lacked any real flavor and was more medium-well than medium. It came with a scant amount of veggies and mushrooms, and I had to ask for more bearnaise sauce as the meat was too dry for my taste - not fatty or juicy enough. I did not think the portion was worth the price at all. The pudding was very good. My friend said her cocktails were very good. Service: Our server was sort of slow, but she said COVID was the reason. Extra cleaning and etc. makes service slower, apparently. She also talked a lot, about the food, and through the mask it was hard to understand her. I just didn't expect such a long winded response to my question about the menu. We felt like she didn't notice our table very much, and seemed to give more attention to other patrons. On the other hand, she remembered our detailed orders well, and was friendly and accommodating. The restaurant definitely didn't seem busy, but it took a while to get our food (45 min) and for our plates to be cleared. We were there for two hours and all we had was one entree and one appie/dessert each. Ambience: Elegant looking decor, but it feels like an old place which has been renovated/modernized, and not using high end materials. It definitely cannot be called a fancy steakhouse, a fancy hotel restaurant, or anything close. I personally would not recommend this restaurant.More

We ate here on our last night staying at the Century Plaza hotel. I wish we ate her more since the food was excellent and the service was great. Since a lot of places have suffered due to the pandemic, this place hasn't been busy...from what I can tell but you would never know it with the quality of the food we were served. We had the scallops to start, which were very good but then the tenderloin for our meals was excellent! Perfectly prepared and a beautiful piece of meat along with the fresh vegetables that were served with it. I am particular with Bernaise sauce but this was one of the better ones I have had in a while. Our server was so kind and friendly and the kitchen staff were just as nice and helpful. We definitely will return here on our next visit to Vancouver and hope business starts to pick up for these well run establishments.More

At one time was a favourite restaurant of mine. Introduced many of my friends to it. Visited it today and was a tremendous let down. At first the hostess refused to accept our coats and said they don't take coats anymore except for special events....Next the menu had changed significantly. Which can normally be an excellent thing, except some of the staples like the Bison Burger or Cesar's salad have been removed. The staffing has been reduced tremendously, so it was pretty much the server who was waiting on most of the tables by herself. Previously the water guy was amazing and on his game, he was gone; the waiter who has been there for years- gone; Also gone were the basics such as the focaccia bread - now it's a special order for $8 with some hummus thrown in for good measure. Why don't restaurants recognize the value of these small things. We ordered a bottle of wine which was served and the server made sure the glasses were full at all times, but the water was only served once and never brought back again. I ordered the Spaghetti with Arrabiatta sauce for $22 and it came in a small bowl with no crostini or bread with it. Highly unusual for any restaurant. The bowl of spaghetti was reminiscent of an Oliver Twist scene. Sad. Try to write reviews that are fair and balanced, but always completely honest with no exaggeration. The ambiance in the restaurant is great and the server Mary, was good, but one person alone cannot make the experience exceptional. So overall the lack of service, the reduced services and staff makes me not want to go back again. Sad because it is a 100 feet from where I live!More

A friend and I had the buffet today at C Prime. We remarked that although most of the tables were occupied, it was a lot less noisy than many restaurants. Service staff were pleasant and attentive. The buffet had a selection of breakfast foods and...a fairly extensive selection of cut fruit including berries. I liked the idea of creating my salad with a varied selection of salad ingredients. Hot dishes included Italian type pastas and fish as well as beef carving station and a dessert table. We definitely will go back again.More
