This bar has great food and service. Sit by the big windows and people watch. The were a lot of dogs walking their owners too. The bartender was friendly, efficient and personable.

I came here for Easter brunch with my teenage son. They offered Brunch boards for Easter with bottomless mimosas. We were both so pleased with the whole experience. The hostess, Kylie, greeted us right away and was very friendly and took us to a great...table. We ordered a board to share which was more than enough for two people. It was a fabulous treat for brunch…like a charcuterie board but with brunch items. Our server was polite and friendly and Kylie the hostess even came around to check on us and offered me a fresh mimosa. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is that the cooked items on the board weren’t very hot…more tepid but still delicious. Would definitely return if they offer brunch boards again.More

This is a hotel bar. Service was professional. Menu is limited (unless you want a burger). Food was generally good except for the Fish and Chips.......fried fish that resulted in the batter still being flour! Big emphasis on the happy hour for cheaper drinks.

Richmond is out of the way, and not especially known for its restaurants, people here come over to Vancouver for an evening out, but the CAVU Kitchen Bar at the Hilton in Richmond was a welcome find in our particular pinch - arriving at 5:00...pm for an early dinner, we found out that we were on time for the happy hour specials, not to mention the reduced specials of the specific day - my guest and I shared the prawn pot stickers, which were superb, I had the lobster ravioli, which were ample and good enough to praise here, my guest had the pan seared fish, which looked absolutely delicious - the service was nothing short of excellent, attentive, courteous, personable, respectful, thank you so much, Matthew - and the price was beyond right - we intend now to make the CAVU a weekly hauntMore

I had a great time recently in Vancouver/Richmond at Cavu. Jerry in specific was always very accommodating, greeting with a smile every morning and making me feel comfortable. The breakfast buffet was delicious. One day for lunch I was in a hurry and they rushed...a salad to go so that I wouldn’t be late for my conference. all the food I had was great and there was a wide selection on the buffet and on the menu. So fantastic have such a convenient and excellent place to make my weekend more productive.More

Cavu is the best hotel restaurant among the various local ones I've visited. The food quality is excellent with a wide array of delicious and unique burgers and other knife and fork options. I choose their award winning mac and cheese burger ($20), with buns...made from deep fried mac and cheese: a meal and a half! Service is always friendly and attentive. Galia served us on our visit and the bartender is engaging as well. Atmosphere is classy and inviting with live music on certain nights. We had a guitarist playing popular songs on Saturday night.More

Joined some freinds fro dinner at Cavu and was very impressed with the service. For the most part the food was very good but what really made the evening was our server Galia who was very attentive, helpful and a lot of fun.

My friend and I were looking for a nice place to eat in Richmond before our evening plans and we’re so delighted to have picked Cavu. Both our hostess and our server Ash were so pleasant and really made our experience. Ash helped us pick...some very tasty drinks before our dinner which was delicious. Both my friend and I look forward to out next dinner at Cavu - 5 stars!More

Underwhelming breakfast. Adults liked it but kids hardly ate any even though they were hungry. Potatoes were greasy. Quality was just not very good for an $18 breakfast. I had the hash which was pretty good.
