    Great service, drinks, and apps. Disliked the switch from the former elegant, pottery-style dinner plates to cheap white utilitarian dishes. Also, the ling cod main was inferior to the same dish I’ve ordered before. The sauce was thin and lacking its firmer complexity and richness, and the stuffed peppers were limp and lacking filling and flavour. The fish itself was fine, but overall, the dish was disappointing. It’s so annoying when prices go up and quality goes down.

    Everything from the Seafood Tower, main course, to the desert and drinks was absolutely outstanding. Both the sablefish dish as well as the current special of Garlic crusted Halibut were melt-in-your mouth divine! Seriously some of the best fish I’ve ever had and our family agreed. Chef Alex Chen and his team are magicians creating works of culinary art you won’t be disappointed with. Lastly, our server Dennis kept us thoroughly taken care of with entertained with witty banter and intriguing stories from the kitchen and beyond.

    Our Mother's Day brunch fell short of expectations. Despite our willingness to pay extra, the staff/kitchen showed no flexibility in accommodating additional items. We just asked for some bread and pastry and they did not have it. The coffee quality was disappointing, and our table was tucked away in a cold, isolated room. Staff attire was also outdated. Overall, a lackluster experience for such a special occasion.

    All of the food ordered at our table was delicious and beautifully plated. The service was great and we had a lovely time. Highly recommend the beef carpaccio, grilled hanger steak and the Seared Hokkaido Scallops, replaced with prawns, was incredible! Our server was excellent and we may visit again during our stay in Vancouver. The food is so good, we were happy to dine here two evenings in a row!

    Food was delicious! Definitely enjoyed that part. Cons: Front greeter did not give us Happy hour Menu when seated despite us still arriving 30min before Happy Hour ended. Had to ask waiter for it. Our waiter was short, abrupt, and seemed impatient. Nice, but definitely not what you expect out of a Vancouver higher end restaurant. If this is how most waiters treat their guests and tourists, it doesn't give Vancouver a good look especiallu since this restaurant is in a popular Downtown Hotel, The Sutton. We are local and was surprised by the service. This can make or break the dining experience. Luckily the food saved the evening. Compliments to the chef.

    The overall experience was perfect, 10/10, terrific service, the courses were well explained in detail with enthusiasm. Our server was great, checked up on my partner and I quite frequently and tended to our needs promptly. The seafood tower was definitely a beautiful sight. It was a great date night, and we were put in a nice intimate location as I selected the date option from OpenTable. 10/10 recommend.

    Our dinner of the Brant Lake Wyagu carpaccio, Seared Hokkaido scallops, lumina lamb shank was unique but very flavorful. The Salted sesame praline bar was to die for. The Smokin peaches cocktail made me fall in love with Scotch Whiskey again. We can hardly wait to come back and taste the rest of the menu. Our female server was exceptionally knowledgeable and charming.
