    The lower prize dishes, like the pastas, should have a bigger portion, even if that means to increase the prize a bit more.

    Arrived at 5:25pm for a 5:30 rezo. Was met and asked to come back in 5 minutes as the restaurant was not even open yet. The adjacent bar wasn't open either so we sat at the closed bar waiting. Then we were shoed to a small table by a cold window and had to keep jackets on to be comfortable. Waiter brought the wrong dish to one of us... corrected it quickly though. The lamb I ordered 'medium-rare' was super rare. Pasta was cooked properly with a well-executed sauce. All was overly expensive. Not at all a memorable experience OR meal. Would not recommend.

    One of the best meals I’ve had in the city. Spent a bit more to get the tasting menu but it was well worth it. Our server was one of the best I’ve had along with the 6.5 course meal & great cocktails. Would highly recommend.

    It was a wonderful experience with their 7 course ‘We’ll take it from here’ tasting menu. It was like eating art pieces that not only looked beautiful but tasted like heaven too. We loved every single course except for the dessert which was a corn ice cream sitting on corn bread, surrounded by blackberry brûlée topped with a crumble. The dessert was gorgeous, we just thought the corn bread was a little dry and the texture was too far of a contrast from the smoothness of the ice cream and brûlée. It felt like the corn cake/bread needs a little bit more moisture to compliment the other components. Service was great as always at The Fairmont. They make you feel like royalty as soon as you step through their doors. Can’t wait to try their new menu for the next season!

    As a vegetarian I was really looking forward to this meal, but was left underwhelmed. Of the 5 plates we shared 3 were under seasoned and one even undercooked. There are much more exciting, interesting options for vegans and vegetarians in this city.

    Absolutely amazing! We really enjoyed all the cocktails and food. Council of trees was a great scotch based cocktail that I will dream about forever. We also did the chefs tasting menu paired with wines. Excellent choice. The only thing I didn’t like was the popcorn flavored ice cream. But 5 stars all and all.

    We have dined at the Botanist several times over the past 15 months. Last evening was the best dinner experience. The halibut was cooked to perfection and was delicious. The lamb two ways was full of flavour. Our server Matthew paired up our meals with two very excellent wines. Well done, you have definitely raised the bar another notch,
