Great choice when your staying at the Fairmont and you don't want to leave the Airport. We loved the guitar player that was there the night we were.

We wanted a quieter table for a business meal. There was no notice of live music so that was a surprise. Food was mediocre for the price.

We made the mistake of ordering the Thanksgiving meal and it was just not very good at all. The attempt at making a more unique presentation simply failed. May well be better off the regular menu.

While I loved it, food delicious, I did find the prices outlandish to be honest. It was $175. before tip, 2 appetizers, 2 entrées, 2 glasses of wine. Would also like to see a couple more vegan options.

Best experience ever - had a quick anniversary dinner with my girlfriend and Fairmount was able to fit into our busy schedule. There is table near a power outlet for work/laptop. We had to eat while working and the food was amazing.

The staff was kind and professional. A complimentary desert was offered to us as a special anniversary gift. It is a very thoughtful gift and this year's anniversary became unforgettable. Thank you so much Fairmount!

We went for Sunday breakfast...my husband had a ham and cheese omelette and I had the brioche French toast with peaches. Both were amazing. Service was excellent and server was very attentive. View of the mountains and planes were spectacular.

Server forgot about us for the first 15 minutes, apologized when she realized this. Was provided tea, but not offered milk or cream. Food was okay. Read much better than it tasted. Black Truffle and corn chowder was just a corn chowder, not even a hint of truffle. Textures were all one note. Dress code was smart casual, but patrons were more on the casual side.

Our last visit was excellent — same as the many other times my friend and I came for afternoon high tea. The selections change up every season, making it fun to try something new every time. It was busy but the noise levels were such that we could still comfortably hold a private conversation. It was the perfect way to relax at the end of a stressful week.

Used bar menu instead of Globe menu. Server did not know how the bar menu items were prepared and misguided is having to send a meal back to be replaced. Speakers over restaurant are same as bar and turned up very high. However, the live guitarist was great and at a pleasing sound level. Very expensive for bar food when we were planning a nice elegant dinner.

Nestled in a world class airport, high tea at Fairmont YVR is well worth the trek. Tiered plates of delicious treats from scone served with creme fraiche to savoury halibut salad on Melba toast. You get one choice of tea so my sister in law and I picked the Fairmont blend and a green tea. We were bit late finding our way from airport parking to the restaurant but the staff were understanding and didn’t rush us for allotted 1.5 hour. Would definitely come back for special occasion or indulgence before boarding or after flight!

I appreciated the fact that we were given complementary parking for 3 hours. We wouldn't have gone there if some compensation hadn't been offered. If we had paid the full amount for parking at YVR it would have been close to $25. The only complaint I had was that the person who gave me the voucher said that we could use it in the "Express lane". Unfortunately it cannot be read by the scanner there and I had to back up and go through the cashier lane.

Stayed at this beautiful Fairmont with my family prior to an early morning departure. We were delighted with a terrific meal, great service and atmosphere. I enjoyed one of the best nicoise salads (fresh ahi, how can you go wrong) while my family feasted on burgers. A great choice for travelers, especially if time permits between flights.

This is a convenient dining option while a guest at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel. There is, apparently, no dress code or guideline of any sort. Wear whatever you wish...think Famous Dave's.
The food is unremarkable and, like the hotel itself, quite expensive. Again, it is all about the convenience. Oh yes...bread is not offered with your meal. You must purchase bread and it is not bread, at all. If you order it you will eventually receive a freshly baked little loaf of some sort of a sweet/savory, herbal cake...somewhat like corn "bread".

Service was outstanding. From being promptly greeted and seated to our server — everyone we encountered was friendly. Sorry, forgot our server’s name — Diana? Deannna? was fantastic. She was efficient, helpful, cheerful. My father doesn’t care for vegetables or salads but he said three times during the meal how much he liked the salad that came with his burger. The dressing he said was so good. We’ve never seen him finish his greens so enthusiastically! The featured dessert, a rhubarb ricotta cheesecake was delicious, and I generally don’t like cheesecake.

Walking in and out through the Hotel was also a very pleasant experience as staff were friendly and greeted us. We were particularly impressed by the bell hop who asked if we needed the elevator as we were walking in that direction and he offered to go call it for us.

We enjoyed every aspect of our lunch that day.
