Dear Erika K, Thank you for your comments. We certainly aim to honour the ingredients, and we're so apologetic if your serving of halibut was overcooked. As our chef has been working on the winter menu, he has been looking at opportunities to include more...More

Awesome view, awesome service and awesome food. We really enjoy it besides the fact that it includes the gondola for free so you can go into Grouse mountain in the afternoon, walk around and the place and in the night have dinner

Great meal. Not fast, but you're here for the view you don't see everyday. Great deal too that your lift pass is included with dinner for each person. Menu is a bit quirky, not all your usual appy fare. Mains were delicious and plating was...More
