The meal was fabulous. Kudos to the chef. Adam our server made our dinner a very memorable wonderful experience. I would come back in a heart beat and recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Went there for Dine out. Good selection for the set menu, surrounds great, but a little chilly. Service was top-notch & friendly. And the sea bass was very good
Nothing to write home about. Would not visit again
the food was very good though I did not like the soup bowl that they used to serve lamb shank. Guest dining with me were pleased with their choices. We had 2 kids 3 and 5 years with us and they were served with meals as soon as they ordered.
Great. Good food.
Fix your prices. Happy hour add fries to your burger is $5 but on the menu it’s $4. I brought this up to the server and she adjusted the price.

Took a long time for the food, but it was al right when it did arrive. Adam, our server, was pleasant and fun
We were sorry to note that there was no other guests in the dining room. A tough business situation.
To visit with friends and celebrate belated birthdays
The entire restaurant was empty when we arrived and when we left after lunch. We were the only table!
A server just reported to work when we arrived.
Service was alright.
Poor execution of mediocre food quality.
We tried this restaurant through Dine out Vancouver 2020 and was not disappointed with the meal. The piano bar was an excellent touch.
We did the Dine Out Vancouver 2020. Good food with big servings. Very friendly staff. They could do a little more with the ambiance, though. Softer lights and updated decor won’t hurt.
You can't go wrong with a pleasant atmosphere, great service and a menu with many choices. We always enjoy dining here.
Looking forward to an evening out with friends for dinner. For myself I did not have a very good selection as am vegetarian, no meat or fish. The rest of my party had the dine out menu which they said was very good. The restaurant was not able to offer a selection when I advised that could not eat anything with meat/fish base. For this reason giving a 2 star.
They didn't seem to be aware of our reservations. Server was nice and efficient--she took good care of our person who had food allergies. But service didn't match the level we anticipated considering the menu.
Food was ok. Portions were good but nothing fabulous.
Ambiance was very casual, considering the menu for Dine out. Expected ambiance to have been a little more dining room-like vs lounge.
Good place to have a great meal
We went to the restaurant for the dine out Vancouver menu. The food was very good and the service was very good. I enjoyed the piano music but we were sitting close to the piano and found it a bit loud
We came during Dine Out. The tuna salad was spectacular. However, our steaks were way overcooked. They were dry and chewy. The veal was also lacking in the flavour. It wasn't as good a value as some other Dine Out restaurants we went to this year. Ambiance was okay, but music was a little loud.
It was awesome!!! Service was so friendly and excellent my veal was cold though I wish it was hot like the chicken.
Overall the environment and food was good. Just we have a rookie server, which she doesn’t know the food and wine they have and we have to point it out in the menu. She also doesn’t know the how to pour wine and dripping it everywhere outside of the glass and table. The weirdest was when we pay the bill, she enter the tips amount for me instead of passing it for myself to enter.
I was initially put off by the set up of the restaurant. The restaurant is open to the lobby of the hotel, and the lighting is quite bright for a dinner setting... it looked more like a cafeteria. I was ready to walk out when my friend insisted we try it out. Surprisingly, the food was lovely! I had the seared tuna for starter and yummy! followed by the veal osobuco, fall off the bone meat, with lovely vegetable medley and mash potatoes ~ Delicious! the desert was a bit Meh.... I had the chocolate cake.
overal, don't judge a book by its cover! it was worth the dine out experience.
Dine out menu in 2020 is worth the value
We had a lovely time!
It is a good place to have lunch with friends and families who you enjoy having conversation with in relaxed atmosphere. Service was excellent!
I made reservations on Open Table and when we got to the restaurant, they said we didn't have reservations. I showed them my confirmation and they were able to set up a table.
A bit upsetting as my group thought I had made a mistake.
The piano entertainer was very good and a nice background to the chatter from other tables.
Staff seemed unprepared/overwhelmed for a Mother's day Brunch. Food was passable at best, and service was non-existent. Even paying the bill was troublesome.
Came for the Mother’s Day brunch. Waiters didn’t know what the we’re doing (absolutely no clue what was going on and could not answer our questions). Very disorganized. Food was not the best quality for the $50/person price tag. Could have had a steak dinner and wine for that price, instead of over cooked eggs Benedict in a heat tray and jugs of juice from concentrate.
Food was awesome. Service was excellent. Recommend this place highly.
Suggesting for a designated area with proper signage for table reservations so as not to leave guests clueless as to where they are going upon arrival. Easy access upon payment and not going to the other side of the restaurant just to do so.
I was very disappointed as Acqua had no knowledge of my reservation, although I had made it almost a week prior and had confirmation. They did manage to fit us in in a timely fashion, but I don't blame them, I blame Open Table, so I would not feel comfortable with using Open Table again
