    We must admit we were disappointed. The roast beef dinner was good as well as the onion soup. We’re seniors and 2 Omg chocolate cakes was too much and the server should have mentioned this to us. However we ordered and started with one waiter and half way through our dinner we got another waiter. Very casual dinner for the price and very casual atmosphere for an expensive meal and hotel. We were both disappointed…we expected more.

    The food was very tasty and very well presented. We enjoyed our meals. The music was a little loud for my liking. We wanted to talk and catch up. We had to leave the restaurant early due to being unable the hear each other speak. I highly recommend Notch 8, as the meal was lovely.

    Notch8 at Fairmont Vancouver Hotel. Absolutely perfect spot for lunch, Food is outstanding, compliments to Chef and Kitchen Staff. This is perfect spot to enjoy lunch and actually have a great conversation with your guests/friends. This will be our GoTo "spot" , when loud music and zero sound barriers are just too much to endure. "Readers please take note" Jilly

    The host and hostess found us a lovely, quiet table for our dinner, celebrating 36 years. We informed our server that we had tickets for the VSO, so she was aware of our timeline. Ducts or Duchess gave us excellent, attentive, prompt service. She deserves recognition.

    The service was great. In comparison with the buffet pre pandemic though, I notice the selection got smaller and fewer, especially for desserts and sides. The egg Benedict’s were unfortunately not done well as we tried two batches and both had rock-hard English muffins that was not edible. Still an overall pleasant experience but food was not as fantastic.

    Wanted to give kudos to both your front of the house manager Andres Penaloza, who personally came to our table to ensure we were having a wonderful dining experience, & to our server Camy Bowes, who was warm, welcoming & super attentive to our needs. We are ACCOR diamond members & the service at Notch-8 today is exactly why we frequent Fairmont Gold properties & enjoy your dining. Thank you so very much for our brunch today.

    I expected a more ‘elegant’ experience as opposed to a casual dining experience. I had the 3 course salad, prime rib, dessert and added oyster mushrooms. Mushrooms were to die for - excellent, as was the broccolini! The food was good and all veggies were fresh but I needed honey with my tea that never came; my mushrooms came out late, no butter with the dinner roll, waiter disappeared mid dinner… just too many little things that can put a damper on a dining experience. If I’m spending $340 (with tip) on a dinner for 2, I expect table cloths and spectacular service. Didn’t get that. Sure do miss those elegant dining experiences.

    Prime rib was excellent. French onion soup very good. The mashed potatoes were cold, the gravy was cold and the yorkshire pudding was cold. What a shame! Both desserts were excellent: the chocolate cake and the apple crumble. I was disappointed with decor. The bottle chianti classico recommended by sommelier was superb.

    We had reservations for 7:30 pm. The signature item on the menu was prime rib. At 8:00 pm we ordered our food and they were out of prime rib! This was the main reason we went there to eat. The menu had few other options. We ended up ordering cheeseburgers and fries. Drinks food and tip was over $200 Canadian. It was also very noisy to the point where we could not hear ourselves talk. Don’t dress up like we did, it’s not that nice of a restaurant. Go there to have drinks and not dinner.
