                                              Over priced, food was disappointing - lamb dish and halibut.

                                              Brunch was excellent. Two courses including 2 cocktails! The beef tartar was the best non traditional one I have ever had. I prefer it better now. Service on point!

                                              I hope you love interior design because you’ll be waiting hours for your food! We went for a late brunch on Saturday at 12:40, and the waiter did not approach us to take our order for 15 minutes. We did not receive our main entrees until 1:40. Our cocktails that we ordered tasted great, but also did not arrive until just before our main entree. A group of young girls sat next to us at around 1:20. They had their order and main entrees delivered in UNDER 20 minutes and BEFORE us. To my shock, when our main entrees arrived, we had ordered the same food as the other table. Why were we serviced so much slower? We ordered the same food and had the same order. The service here is unacceptable and extremely subpar for a fairmont restaurant. The food is good but not worth the price. Overall, will not be returning

                                              We had a delicious, unique, and beautiful dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. This was the first restaurant we dined at on our trip and it did not disappoint. Philip provided excellent service and we each did the “we’ll take it from here” Tasting menu. We were delighted with the chef’s creations and appreciated their sensitivity and attention to allergies at the table. It was a wonderful evening and start to our trip.

                                              The food was probably some of the best I've ever had! This was absolutely a memorable experience. Great value for the price, glad we decided to share. Thank you!

                                              The service was quite slow this time around and out server seemed stretched. He often forgot some items buy was very nice about it. The appetizer and dessert were superb, but the main course left something to be desired.

                                              We went on a Tuesday night for an 8pm reservation. Service was a little bit slow, but overall, we like going to Botanist.

                                              Ambiance was great, with a live pianist playing at a volume you could still talk through. Service was good with our server being attentive and seemed genuinely interested in helping us enjoy our meal. The appetizers and desert were good but the main course was really disappointing. Both steaks came out cooked as requested but were cold and had been rested too long. The butter they place on top barely softened let alone melted. The gnocchi was deep fried and more like a crispy donut and the “jus” was a thick gravy. The rest of the side vegetables were set in a bed of some very think brown sauce which made the whole meal very gelatinous and heavy. Overall the food was really disappointing especially for the price of the meal. Would give this place a pass next time.

                                              The food is very good, blending flavors in unique combinations. Service is attentive and not overbearing or fussy. The food selections are not wide-ranging, leaving the diner with limited choices. Although furnished with many hard surfaces the room is not excessively noisy. Although there were few diners on the night we attended.

                                              Th serving is too slow, otherwise everything is good

                                              Everything was absolutely incredible. Was able to accommodate all our allergies (egg, dairy and gluten). Fine dining at its finest! We got a wonderful 6 course meal.

                                              Very elegant food that is fresh and seasonal. Canadian wines were excellent. Service was very good.

                                              Matthew our server was amazing. His knowledge of wines was second to none. The duck was made perfect and the sauce had just the right amount of kick. I would definitely recommend.

                                              Botanist never disappoints. We come here for most every special occasion and are blown away each time. The food and drinks are impeccably crafted, the servers are lovely and knowledgeable, and the ambiance and decor is sublime. We have tried nearly everything on their exquisite menu and have yet to be anything but awed: breakfast, brunch, or dinner. The perfect Pacific Northwest culinary experience.

                                              Botanist was one of the best restaurants I have ever dined at. The service was incredible - not once did we think about our waters being empty. The food was spectacular, every sauce we would happily have consumed from a mug. The desserts were both phenomenal as well - the pastry department is doing incredible things right along side the culinary and FOH. Thank you so much to the whole team. I will be recommending Botanist to everyone I know!

                                              The restaurant has a relatively limited menu, but the food is delicious. Service on my previous two visits was excellent, this time it was rather independent on the part of the main server, her helpers were excellent. The ambiance is serene, tables are well spaced and noise level low.
