It was great food and service
And awesome reastaurant
The food was excellent and so was the service. We were an hour early with a plan to get cocktails downstairs but it was a long wait. We went up to the lounge and were accommodated within 5 mins. Exceptional service upstairs. Very attentive. The atmosphere is quite loud, but you can still have a conversation. Food was very good.
The food was amazing and each dish was so unique. The duck breast is perfect each time I have had it. If you’ve never tried I would highly recommend! Our server was very nice and the other staff were great with bringing out our dishes and drinks. We came for my 30th birthday and it was the cherry on top to my birthday celebration.
We had a fantastic experience at The Botanist. Beautiful styling, friendly and capable staff, amazing food that was unique and flavourful, the whole shebang. Our server Larry recommended a few cocktails based on flavour preferences and I have to say he was bang on!! Will definitely go again.
L’accueil a été terrible.Nous avions l’impression de déranger la personne à l’accueil qui semblait débordée par l’ouverture à 10h du restaurant. Nous avions pourtant réservé. Dommage car les assiettes étaient parfaites et délicieuses. À cause du service , je ne recommanderais pas.
Went here for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend. It was our first time here for dinner as we usually come for drinks at the bar. Would visit again.
Great food. Server forgot our second drink and did not return to our table for 30 mins. Otherwise great!!
Fresh, local and fantastic! I would definitely recommend for a couple or any group of adults.
Came for just drinks and were not greeted by friendly staff. We were told that we actually weren't allow to do that.
Best restaurant meal in a very long time. Charred octopus and snow crab salad to start. Sablefish and king salmon mains. Every dish elevated to perfection.
Some of the food is a little bit salty and my waiter is not professional
Another amazing experience :)
Food was excellent and the staff were phenomenal. Can't wait to go back!!! Brandon was really knowledgeable and helped make the evening the great experience it was.
The service was friendly and the food was amazing. I love the room and ambiance of this restaurants. It was one of the most decadent brunches I have ever had. I left incredibly full due to to 2 course minimum but it was completely worth it! I am excited to return again.
The food was exquisite.
Enjoyed! Our in law’s birthday and they presented a nice dessert with a candle for them! Nice!
A fantastic evening!
This was easily one of the best meals, and culinary experiences, we have ever had.
A wonderful culinary experience. The tasting menu was fabulous, and the service impeccable. Thanks for making the evening so special.
The service was fantastic! I had big expectations for the food but it was just ok. The lamb was not very tender and overly spicy. I should have told the server but I chickened out
Great food, great drinks and larry was the man
We had an absolutely wonderful experience. Our server was a delight, the food was incredible and served swiftly and the cocktail program was impressive for a restaurant.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion. We really enjoyed our food and drinks
I was there for my birthday with my family. I have 2 little ones and they both had a wonderful time. The service is amazing. Everyone is so professional and polite. The food is UNBELIEVABLY good. We all enjoyed our brunch. Thank you for the impeccable service and food! We will be back for more.
My wife and I had a fantastic anniversary here as we got the “We’ll take care of it” option, with wine pairing.
The staff was incredible, the wine was fantastic, and the gnocchi made both of us cry it was so good.
10 out of 10 recommend, this may become a regular anniversary spot for us.
It was delicious as per usual. Service was good. Will go back.
Service is exceptional, had an amazing time. Delish!
We had a lovely evening celebrating our anniversary. The service was wonderful and the cuisine, divine.
Waited three years to go and it was worth the wait. Fantastic for brunch and cocktails.
One of my favourite spots in the city, great overall, will return soon!
Our dining experience was perfect! Our server was excellent!
Quite enjoyed a restaurant out for the first time in 12 months!!! Service was great, presentation was good, wine pairing only okay, bit of a stretch in flavours and choice to match.
Food was exceptional. Sommelier very accommodating in suggesting good pairings. Great service.
Cocktail we had was not amazing, that was the only moderate negative.
Pretentious and overrated. Excessive prices. Uninspired menu. Rushed service. All round disappointment. I wish I spent my money elsewhere there are way better restaurants in Vancouver...
It was great. I loved how your employees are very engaged with their customers.
Fantastic dining experience. The food was delicious and the service was sensational. The wine pairings and beverages were excellent. We can’t wait to be back!
Beautiful setting, wonderful food and attentive staff
From the ambiance, to the décor, to the food, everything was beautiful. This is definitely the place to celebrate a special occasion, or to just enjoy the experience of great food. Favourite dishes of the night would have to be the Pan Seared Scallops and the Dry-Aged Duck Breast.
We got the Prix-Fixe dinner and it was excellent with a great variety included in the 6 courses
Celebrated my birthday. The service from the moment you come in is amazing. It’s extremely clean. Staff are very professional. The food was impeccable! Seriously the best brunch I’ve ever had! I can’t wait to come back.
