Life is complicated.
Good food shouldn’t be.
Excellent service by Marla and food was well executed. Portions are modest so as to allow for an easy 2-3 courses.
Great location, friendly host. Food was okay price was reasonable.
Food was fresh and delicious. I ordered Albacore Tuna and my friends ordered Tuna Sandwich. We also enjoyed Pinot Grigio. Darren, our server, was professional with a great sense of humor.
I have had 2 business lunches and 1 evening business event at Arc. I love love the ambiance and the food. The food is top notch, and so is the service. My office is not even 2 blocks away and I am embarrassed to say I am only discovering Arc now. I will be back again very soon.
We were there for brunch; service was slow but the food was good. Excellent location and venue.
Jennifer the “best” but we love ARC ! Everything fresh and so so good ! Wait staff the best. Everywhere we went we would say “our resturant” is better than this! Love you guys and the food!
Love the food! It was amazing and service was nice and attentive. Not the friendliest server but still got us taken care of! As soon as the live music started it was hard to hear each other talk and he wasn’t that great to begin with. The noise really did put a dampen on our meal.
It is one of our favourite place to come for lunch but this time bit disappointed for quality of food & cleanliness.
I asked for no salt for my fries but it was salted. My turkey sandwich wasn't good as before.....and so as cobb salad.
We still enjoyed meal but some how it wasn't as good as used to be.
Hostess who seated us had some white flakes all over on her black dress (shoulders) and directed us to the seats where also covered with some bread crumbs. Bit turned me off. Server was attentive and bartender was nice.
Overall still good place.
Excellent food, exquisite drinks, exceptional service. Quality live music as well.
The service was very good and the best part of the meal was dessert. The dinner menu is very limited with few choices. I would recommend adding a few more entrees.
Disappointing. Small menu little choice. We used tourism passport and they limited us order only $30 and below and there are only 3 items to choose !!! Cheap restaurant!
Best place for a business lunch. The tables are far enough apart that you can hear your luncheon companion with the cackle from the other tables.
Server provided amazing customer service. Food was quite good. All in all a great lunch.
Excellent service - as always. One of my favourite places to eat in Vancouver. Well done - I am never disappointed. Jennifer is a wonderful host and server. I always look forward to seeing her.
Service was excellent
Good service and good food. Good ambience and they had live music while we were there. Would definitely recommend.
The experience was more like being in a more average restaurant like the Cactus Club.
The atmosphere was cold and dull. the lighting had no dynamic. Most of the sconces and ambient lighting was not even turned on. No art, no focal point ho hum. The prices were extremely high for the food... and we left hungry... after sharing an appetizer between 2 of us,
baked bread and 2 main entrees . No value here. would not recommend. Pretentious, it would make a better tapas bar but not fine dining. The room just doesn't cut it.
The service was fantastic.
Sable fish was not as rich and fresh as expected and the beef tenderloin was cooked past med rate as ordered. The host Svetlana was very nice and the food Service was good.
My only complaint is value. I had been at Le Crocodile the night before where the prices are similar to Arc but we received a complimentary amuse bouche, bread, shoe string fries, palate cleansing sorbet and parting chocolates. No such extras at Arc. Had to pay for bread.
Service was very friendly and attentive. Decent wine list. Lots of windows makes for a bright room. Nice hotel restaurant.
The most amazing Currie Cauliflower couscous said.
Super friendly staff
Food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
Waitress was great. Food was amazing.
Wonderful service and the special of the day was outstanding.
Good service and delicious food in an elegant setting with good views of the harbour. Hostess who helped us take photos deserves a special mention for the time and care with which she helped us. The waitress was also very polite and courteous.
This is a beautiful restaurant in the Fairmont Waterfront. The ambience is spectacular - you can enjoy beautiful views from within the restaurant, there is live music and there is ample space for a large get-together.
I've been to Arc many times, including back when it was Heron's. We went on a Friday evening, and it happened to be Dine-Out.
Service was remarkably slow - we were ignored for the first 20 minutes that we sat at our table, even though the restaurant was mostly empty. Service didn't improve once we ordered. Our server was not rude in the slightest - just completely inattentive.
The food from the Dine-Out menu was not enjoyed by any of us. I eat fish, but not other meats - I ordered the ling cod, but there was a very noticeable aroma and taste of bacon on the vegetables on my dish. My other friends who ordered the pasta and beef where also underwhelmed.
I think the point of Dine Out is to make people try new restaurants to find a new spot they like - this experience actually did the opposite; despite my previous positive experiences, I would not go back to Arc.
Again, beautiful restaurant, great location, mediocre food and mediocre to deficient service.
We went there for dine out. The environment was nice and cozy with live music. We both ordered the tuna tartar as appetizer and it was a great disappointment- the tuna didn’t taste fresh and the crispy chip on top of the tuna was soggy.
After the appy we didn’t expect much from our entree- we had ling cod- good portion, taste was fantastic! And dessert was good too. My friend ordered a hot chocolate with baileys and I ordered black tea with sugar and milk.
Overall it was good so I will give 4 stars.
Very good food and nice place to spend a night
Great dine out experience... Great service overall had a fun night
Came for the dine out dinner and found surprisingly good value! The tuna tartare and the ling cod tasted amazing, and the chocolate bar and bourbon punch were also pretty good. Really nice service and atmosphere and probably will come again in summertime.
Great modern decor with very opened high ceiling. Great food, great wine selection, valet parking option if spent >$100.
Great service! Delicious and elegant meals. A good place for date night or fancy gathering with friends. 100% recommended
First time i’ve been there with my boyfriend. It was awesome! Nice mood, food, service are all fantastic 👌🏻 I wanna bring my parents or friends next time :)
I was created by name & everything was amazing! The beef cheeks fell apart in your mouth...so good. We were not kicked out even though it was a dine out night & I was able yo sit & relax with my friend. Service was impeccable...thanks Vivian!!!
Very good service！
Had a good experience at arc restaurant overall, only nitpicks were the tuna tartare was quite bland and unflavorful, but the beef cheeks were spot on and the chocolate cake dessert was out of this world. Our server was extremely courteous and accommodating as well. As we were seated rather close to the lounge, the noise level was a bit unbearable as it was difficult to talk or communicate to the person in front of me. Live music is a great touch but need to save the loud music for the lounge instead of the dinner area. Suggestion to pick a seat closer to the back end of the restaurant!
Saw a mouse
The overall service was good, however the lighting was so dim we could barely see each other. The portions are very small and overpriced for their quality and size, the bar however made good drinks. After several visits to this restaurant we will not be retuning, the music was also way too loud.
Great ambiance and excellent service. The small food portion was typical for what you pay for. Good locally brewed honey lager beer.
Our server vivienne was outstanding! Made my husband feel so special for his birthday. Quite evident this restaurant has standards of customer service they teach their employees and only hire friendly, interactive staff. Thanks so much will be back! Don’t usually take time to leave a review unless the service was incredible
