The food range is not too much and it is greasy. Waitress cleans up the plates once you finished , perhaps they don’t like you to sit for too long.

Underwhelmed with food selections. Some of the options took too long to get refilled for the buffet.

My husband took me to Notch 8 for my birthday. We absolutely loved our experience. The service was flawless without being stuffy, our servers were friendly and attentive in just the right amounts. We’ve eaten in many fine dining establishments over the years and this is by far the best prime rib anywhere in the world we have ever eaten. The Yorkshire puddings were also beautifully done, better than any we have ever had back in our home country of England. Highly recommended.
We often stop into the bar for a quick cocktail after a hard day of city shopping and that too is always a delightful experience. Some of the most delicious drinks in town. Thank you for a wonderful evening. See you next time.

This was the worst service I've ever received. The server came to serve us coffee at 8am and never returned until 9am to take our order.

Always wanted to try Notch8 and got the opportunity to do the dine out special with them. Our server Danny was phenomenal! He was very helpful and knowledgeable and caring. The food was amazing! Everything tasted fresh! I highly recommend the cauliflower side dish. The only downfall was that drinks are quite pricey. Also the table/booth we sat in had “adjustable” back pillows but weren’t very comfortable. I will probably only dine again here for dine out or a very very special occasion due to it being very pricey and not my favourite ambiance.

I celebrate my bday dinner in Notch8 with my family. The ambiance of the place is perfect, our food service is very nice and good. We ordered food and i got disappointed. My husband ordered a medium rare duck it is so bloody, he couldn't eat it. My appetite is down right away especially after tasting the onion soup with cheese in the top. I got stomach ache after i ate My tenderloin,
It is kind of hard like a gum. Maybe it's just depend on what kind of food you order. The dessert is very nice with taro powder. But overall i can only give 2 stars with my experience.

It has been in my bookmark for a while, finally had the chance to try it out. The dine out food was surprisingly good. And the service was excellent. Had a great dinner experience. I would like to come back some other time!

When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess invited us to a table right next to the fireplace. We were both happy because it was a cold Friday afternoon. We ordered our selection of soup and entrée. I ordered a French Onion Soup and Notch 8 Club which would be very filling if the soup is a regular sized one. The waiter explained that to me and suggested a cup instead of a bowl which I agreed. My co-worker also ordered a cup of soup in addition to an entrée. She was also very satisfied with the service and the food and would highly recommend this restaurant.

Very good meals Prime Rib was huge, Lamb and Sable fish very small needed to order extra potatoes and mushrooms. Flavor was very good for all meals. Originally had table at entrance, bad spot, moved to outside booth, much better. Only issue was quoted $30 for corkage and charged $40, that’s really high most places charge $25.
Great spot, reasonable prices for high end.

Attended the Christmasnday buffet and had a reservation at 1pm. Their hotel lobby looked festive, inviting and staff was friendly. Food looked amazing and tasted good. They kept running low on oysters but other than that everything was fine. Food stations were abit messy but other than that, we had a good time. Service was great.

Birthdays Lunch on the Christmas Buffet. It was excellent. Fresh seafood. A variety of smoked and cured fish. Charcuterie table was beautifully arranged with an assortment of amazing cheeses and cured meets. Particularly please with the creamy blue cheese. I didn’t get the name to my chagrin. A whole strip loin at the carving station a perfect medium rare. The carver cut a fatty piece at my request. Tender and juicy, rested perfectly it didn’t drop all it moisture onto my plate. The skill presented by the kitchen was a pleasure. Also at the carving station was a ham. Turkey and all the fixens a fabulous gravy. Desserts were to notch also. I enjoyed my lunch and the cupcake and birthday champagne were a pleasant surprise. Service was on point also.

Very good breakfast despite the fact I came for the buffet and it was for some reason the only day there were none due to an event happening. I would have loved to see the update on the website so I would have come another morning. Steak Bennie to die for though. Ambiance is great as always Fairmont properties don’t disappoint.
