Service was a little slow initially but the waitress made up for it later on. The chef did excellent on the salmon, perfectly done. It was a nice surprise that kids meal is free when ordering 2+ entrees. Def meets the expectations of making seafood right!

Went for thanksgiving and had the turkey dinner. A little dry and very average. Service was very good but we were expecting a better meal.

We live close to the restaurant and chose ARC for our Thanksgiving dinner for this year. We were greeted warmly at reception and having arrived early for our reservation we were able to obtain a preferred table location.

The venue is actually very pleasant in its design. Lots of natural light, beautiful woods and the tables are set at different floor levels in the semi-circular design of the room. Pleasing music played at a soft-level in the background and table conversations were easily maintained. I am finding these days that many restaurants are playing their background music too loudly and everyone ends up talking loudly. ARC management has this environmental feature under perfect control.

For the size of the dining crowd this evening, I noticed limited staff and suspect that ARC might not yet be able to staff to the desired level, as is the case for many restaurants these days. However, it was also observed that the staff present were working very hard under clear efficiencies. And, at no time did our table have any service concerns – in fact, James, our server was simply amazing in his ability to “take care of us” during our meal although it was also clear that he was also supporting the diners at many tables that evening. Our sincere thanks to James as well as to the front of the house management.

Our food was simply perfection. Hot food was served hot and cold food was served cold. The courses flowed smoothly, arriving at just the right moment. Completed dishes were cleared promptly. Each course was beautiful in its presentation (as they say, we eat with our eyes first). Each course also had excellent flavour profiles and tasted delicious. To my pleasure, the portions were very appropriate --- no excesses so that we did not leave having over-eaten as is so often the case at Thanksgiving. Our compliments to the chef and kitchen team.

All in all, an excellent Thanksgiving meal provided by a hard-working team. Many thanks to each of you!

We went for the theme Four Course Thanksgiving dinner. While the food was excellent the wait between courses was too long. After the salad second course we waited so long that it arrived after the whole cohort of diners had received theirs and finished their meals completely: it was a coordinated meal where those that had arrived for the theme dinner were all served at the approximate same time. We felt very put out because of the delay. It seemed that the spacing between courses was so long that the four courses took us more than two hours of dining time.

We attended the Thanksgiving Brunch and had a great meal. Every item we ordered was absolutely delicious. Our favorites were the butt cheeks with manchego polenta and the yogurt parfait with marscapone yogurt. This special brunch was priced $59 with the added turkey dish. Regular brunch price is $49. I think it was priced a bit high. We were able to try almost every item on the menu but I think it was an expensive brunch but very delicious. I think it's perfect for a special gathering which was our case. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great.

It was a great first time experience at the ARC! Our waitress Emilee was phenomenal. She attended to all of our needs/requests promptly. Cleared the dishes efficiently. She gave great recommendations on how to go about the all inclusive brunch so we get to try a bit of everything as we had a table of 5. Above and beyond our expectations. Excellent service! Definitely will be back for the brunch!

In my second visit there it seems they forgot about my table even though my guests and I were in plain sight. It was a horrible experience. Although my first visit here was great, this visit was the exact opposite. The orders were wrong, we didn't eat much as part of the Sunday brunch - two or three small plates and a smoothie. They recognized what they did and reduced the bill by $10 per person but it didn't do anything to change my mind about how I felt about the place. The waitress told our table she didn't know what went wrong and it was only our table this happened to. I honestly wonder if it was my name or the colour of my skin dining on the inside of the restaurant that caused all this. It was an awful experience and I won't be returning. The food was cold and the price wasn't worth what we ate even after the discounts. It was just a terrible experience. If they weren't ready for my guests and I, or didn't want me to dine there, they should've just told me and asked me to leave or cancelled my reservation. One of my four guests travelled from Langley to attend this terrible lunch while another visited from South Surrey. My wife and I were travelled from Surrey. Very disrespectful. I will never dine at ARC again.

I was disappointed coz one of our dish has hair on it. From there we couldn't enjoy the food anymore. We are also seated on the extend area plus it took long to get our food. This is my second time so, i thought it will be great place to celebrate my aunts birthday but it was a disappointment......

$45 for halibut and gnocchi I was expecting something near marvelous and instead got 6 gnocchi in a watery veggie base and halibut was undercooked, room temp and flavorless. Mussels pasta was hot but muscles were room temperature. Disappointing meal. We ate many meals here in Vancouver and this was by far the most dissatisfying.

All the food was really great! Your hosts were incredibly accommodating when we showed up early for our reso. The only thing was our server was pretty much non existent during our stay - maybe came over 4 times, and wasn’t very welcoming at all.
