    It’s did not live up to hype. Slow service, entree not as described, and pricey for what it was. Did not get the service you are expecting when a normal dinner is $200 pp. Would not return. Many better options in Vancouver.

    Had a very nice brunch for a special occasion. The hostess who greeted us on Sunday was very welcoming and friendly that the initial interaction already made us want to come back to the restaurant. Our waitress and the floor manager were very attentive and friendly. Servers including the bartender were professional. We both loved the appetizer we chose and the drinks included in the course menu. Main dish was quite underwhelming- perhaps because the appetizer was too good? Overall it was a very satisfying experience :)

    Are here one evening and then the next morning for brunch as well. Great food and knowledgeable wait staff. Pricey but worth it for a splurge. The only problem is that the sound is fairly loud and I had a hard time hearing my companions and the wait staff. Fun cocktails and great grazing menus. Dinner - scallops, bursts, and beef carpaccio were fantastic. Also do the strawberry dessert. Divine!!!

    Can’t say enough good things about our time at Botanist! We came for our wedding anniversary and had a beautiful card and champagne waiting for us at the table. The hostesses were very courteous and our server, Chris, was amazing. He thoroughly explained different menu options to make sure the experience was catered to our tastes and checked on us often from the appetizers through the main course to dessert. The atmosphere was wonderful. We sat in the semi-outdoor seating area near the bar with beautiful foliage and piano playing in the background. One thing to note: be wary of the bread—delicious and so tempting to keep eating it but save your appetite for the main course and you won’t be sorry. Tagliatelle, poached halibut, and king salmon were perfect along with the raspberry pavlova. Also enjoyed our drinks: “What the Flower” and “Needed Escape”. Would definitely recommend!

    Excellent service and food as always. Only complaint was the pianist that night was rushing through every piece. Quite anxiety provoking. The end result was a sense of chaos on top of the increasingly loud chatter in the dining room. I believe the atmosphere should be lively but not to the point of nerve wrecking.

    The ambiance is so beautiful & relaxing. Loved all the artwork and greenery. We went for brunch, curated a la carte menu, you have the choice of 2 for 65 or 3 for 71. We all did 3, which also included two cocktails or mock tails. We all chose different items: Starters: Steak tartare : 5/5 Mushroom toast : 5/5 Buratta salad : 5/5 Entrees: Butter poached lobster Benedict : 4/5 Lamb poutine : 3/5 Chili torched salmon : 5/5 Desserts: We had the two options and both were amazing but the presentation of the Black Forest cherry was quite the show stopper. Loved the experience, service was great as well as everyone worked as a team. Great place to visit whether you’re visiting Vancouver or a local.

    Best service in Vancouver! Wagu Carpaccio was amazing as were the cocktails... The mains of lobster and halibut were a little disappointing though in the veggie pairings and sauce flavour... also not very hot when it came out... Great space and comfy seating and delish fresh bread though so all in all a 4 star experience

    One of those rare occasions when everything was excellent. Service fantastic, drinks great, and every dish was full of flavour and complexity. The burrata appetizer and lamb main and chocolate dessert were especially outstanding. The only slight miss was the grilled octopus which could have been more tender but the flavours were great and still would recommend it. On the pricy side but well worth it.

    I would rate it 10/10 even if we didn’t eat… the pianist made the meal for us. It only helped that the “take it from here” dinner rocked our worlds…. Very impressed, visiting from seattle and would recommend this over and over to everyone I know.
