Love our pretrip dinners/breakfasts at Globe@YVR!
Celebrating 30 years together this time. Melissa was our server as she has been many times before & impeccable service as always. Staff are always friendly & professional. Food was creative & flavourful & washed down with some tasty cocktails. Must have the beer bread with bee pollen butter!

Another fabulous experience. Certainly one of our "go to" places for special occasions and we're never disappointed. And the 3 hours of free parking at prime meal times is very welcome relief from the ordinarily expensive parking at the airport.

The only “distraction” from a perfect evening was a very loud individual at the adjacent table who was trying to impress his business colleagues (and totally failing if their body language was any indication). Perhaps a reminder by management to such individuals regarding decorum would be appropriate. Once the individuals at the table departed the remainder of our dinner was quite relaxing.

The service was incredibly slow....2 hours for lunch and it wasn't crowded. My tuna nicoise salad looked like a heap of lettuce stuck on a plate with everything buried underneath and there was way too much dressing. It was an incredible disappointment as I have had it before and it looked and tasted so much better. Overall a disappointing experience

For an upscale restaurant it was very disappointing. Not only was the restaurant extremely cold, there was no real atmosphere. Only the soup was ok. The main course food overall subpar. Chicken was dry and tasteless. Definitely would NOT recommend. Both of us left a huge portion of our meal on our plate and the server didn’t even ask why.

Despite having specifically requested a window table, we were initially assigned to a table near-ish but not adjacent to a window. The hostess said “this is where we always put parties of your size”, which is nonsense as we’ve been there several times before without ever having been seated there. She also said that, if I had wanted a window table, I “should have requested that”, which I had done!! I pointed out where we had been seated on our most recent visit, which was no longer available because, she told us, they had a walk-in arrive just before us. All of which made me question, why did we bother making a reservation?

In the end, they did rearrange some tables so the guest of honour could have a seat right at the window; the view is the precise reason he chose this restaurant (again) to celebrate his birthday.

Our waiter, Curtis, was attentive and thoughtful, and the food was a good as his service. After the initial hiccups with respect to the table, we had a marvellous evening and a very happy birthday kid.

The Fairmont comes with a reputation and, consequently, an expectation. The latter was not fully met on two counts. First, the service was extremely slow; the main course took over 35 minutes to arrive at our table. Second, the food is overpriced; admittedly, the restaurant is an international airport but that is not a reason to charge what it charges.

This is a frustration with several restaurants. Always seating people right near each other when there is lots of space available. In our case, the table was HORRIBLY loud and totally ruined our dinner as we had to listen to their supposedly confidential business conversation about steel.

Asked the restaurant manager if they could put together a little caviar plate off-menu, and the sous chef obliged in spades - along with everything else including the live music, it was a great way to kick off a holiday!

Such a disappointment. We have eaten here many times over the years while staying at the hotel. Salad was a rip off for $18. It was bitter with no dressing. Basically some peeled carrots. Food was served on huge plates which really exaggerated the already extremely small portions. My fish was dry and tasteless. Witnessed a server carrying food while coughing openly. It was such an unsatisfactory dinner when previously it was something to look forward to. Will eat at food court in the next time and it won’t be $137.

This restaurant offers a fine dining experience ( highly selective menu ) at a fine dining price. Maybe not be the best choice for a family or those wanting a more casual dinner with a more varied menu. You can also ask to see the bar menu for more choices.
The service was good.

We went to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary - well the results were less than expected - However, management was on the ball, made considerable concessions and we remain loyal fans - Usually outstanding - fully expect it to be next time

If you want to enjoy a first class meal and really like aviation you can't beat The Globe Restaurant. It is a great place to dine for special occasions. Not inexpensive but for everything you receive, and can enjoy, it is on par with the finest restaurants in Vancouver.

The team at Globe were amazing. They knew it was our anniversary and treated my wife to a view, and (knowing how much she loves airplanes) they even provided her with a plane-spotting guide. They also made sure we had something special to celebrate our anniversary prepped and ready, and were extremely thoughtful the entire time. We would happily return and would be more than happy to recommend the team to anyone who is looking to celebrate a special occasion.

Service levels were very poor. We had to keep asking for re-fills and our food came out in 2 orders per time, (8-people). It was aprox 5 mins from the 1st meal to when the last order came out.
Food was excellent … although, most items were cold plates.

Went to the Globe for mother’s day dinner. Ambience was good with views of the airplanes grounded and live music. Food was overpriced and portions were small. Website states that children 5 and under eat for free but server said it only applied to guests at the hotel. That was a bit disappointing. Server was just okay in terms of attention and politeness. Not sure if i would come here again.
