Included in the World’s 50 Best Discovery list and is MICHELIN Guide recommended, the inviting restaurant space is inspired by the principles of botany, and transports guests into a world where day blurs into night, summer into winter, and food and drink are plenty. Executive Chef Hector Laguna’s menu represents the botany of the Pacific Northwest region, where locally sourced ingredients are coupled with contemporary techniques. With an innovative cocktail bar and lab shaking up chemist-like libations, the experience reflects a new Pacific Northwest—one that has always been there, it was just waiting to be discovered.

    Food was great but it was a little loud as the brunch seems to be popular with groups and we were seated right next to a bridal shower table. Service was excellent though. Our server and the manager really made us feel cared for.

    This restaurant was absolutely stunning from beginning to finish. I took my wife for her birthday on a Saturday evening. We chose to partake in the tasting menu with the wine pairing. This consisted of a 6 course meal and we were asked if we wished to be surprised by each dish-which we elected to do as we have no allergies and decided to leave it to the chef. Their team of sommeliers were excellent as they described the wines to us and how they would pair with the surprise of not knowing what our next dishes would be. Not to ruin the elements of the dishes as we were told it’s a seasonal menu, but I will say that the chef was very bold with his flavors and not afraid to take chances with dishes. We’ve done tasting menus before and this topped them all. It was bold, adventurous, and absolutely delicious. Additionally, the pianist that was playing was incredible throughout the night. I actually ran into him later in the night and learned his name was Winston. My wife and I were surprised that for the 3 hours we were there he was nonstop playing wonderful tunes. We noticed he had no sheet music around him so we had to ask how he did that. We confirmed our assumption that he memorizes every song and he told us “he memorizes them because he enjoys looking around the room to judge the vibe and reaction to the songs he plays”. Overall it was a wonderful evening and all should make a reservation if they’re in Vancouver. Just do the tasting menu and spend the extra money for the wine-you won’t regret it.

    Many thinks that this place has 1 Star Michelin, therefore they expect a lot more. Instead it is inside the Michelin Guide, yes, but that doesn't mean having 1 start Michelin. Food was delicious, pricey yes, but you know in advance what you're getting yourself into. Service was outstanding, our server went above and beyond and was very knowledgeable of the menu, not hesitating giving recommendations on Cocktails, Food and Amaro. Devor and restaurant layout might be the only slightly negative comment we have, that could be improved for sure. Really nice the open-kitchen layout, although some tables are very far away. I wish the bar would be also close to the dining area, so that you could enjoy them preparing those delicious cocktails. Toilets are quite a walk, but very well organized, with even body cream.

    we loved the piano player, he was amazing and his repetoire was endless! My guest had the steak and it was very good. I had the caesar salad and the cabbage roll. I mostly stick to a plantbased diet. The salad was good and the cabbage roll was just okay - the sauce that went over it was too spicy for me, and I think it would be good to let people know that it is spicy. the cocktails were different and delightful. All in all, a good time! Thank you!

    When you go to a michelin star restaurant you woukd expect them to be a lot better than it was. Being known for the legendary drink menu . Well Upon arriving being told that the night menu drinks is different than the day one but no where could I see that when I made reservations. Then basically being told no we will not make them for you and let us know if you wanna stay still. I have been in the industry along time and for someone to say that was very disappointing. Considering watching the table next to me order wine that I did not see on the lunch menu so 🤔 Food was nothing special either. Would I go back after waiting 4 years to go no and I won't recommend it either

    The vibe was just ok here. Luckily, our server was very cute and friendly so he made up for it. The drinks were underwhelming overall … I wish they’d had a bigger cocktail menu. I might come back here - but just to see the server again.

    Weekend brunch comes with a set menu, which I thought it was a great value for a choice of drinks, appetizers, mains and deserts. Lots options though there were only a few vegan plates. We will definitely go back to try other items for dinner. Outstanding service, gorgeous ambiance, and tasty dishes left our birthday girl very happy!

    The experiences at Botanist are always fantastic. Incredible service. They offered a coat check before seating us, which was very nice. My partner ended up not being able to finish his entree (granola parfait) because he is on medication that has not allowed him to eat fruit for the past year. We had prepared for it but he just couldn't finish it. Our waiter was so respectful and even brought my husband a croissant to take home instead. I had the squash salad, lamb belly poutine, and the pistachio dacquoise. I can't remember the name of the drink but it was something reminiscent of "in need of a vacation". My husband had the granola parfait, slow-roasted turkey, and the almond creme brulee with a spiked eggnog. Everything tasted divine and we definitely left feeling stuffed. I highly recommend Botanist to anyone on the fence. You won't regret it.

    Went for the holiday brunch, which was really good value. Have always wanted to try out this place, almost called to cancel the reservation, really glad that we went. Very nice space, good drinks, great food, decent coffee. Dessert also wonderful but might be a bit too much food for me personally. Will definitely go again!
