Helmed by Botanist Executive Chef Hector Laguna, the menu represents the abundant botany of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, where ingredients sourced from their natural landscape are coupled with contemporary techniques; designed to showcase the best version of themselves, making people go to the gathering place for our culinary community.

Located in the heart of Coal Harbour inside Fairmont Pacific Rim, this casual fine dining restaurant offers four distinct areas with their own robust personalities; a bar, garden, dining room and lounge – all inspired by the principals of botany.

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.

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 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

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.

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.
