Regional American (Northwest)
Located on the waterfront where Granville Island faces the city, guests can enjoy panoramic views across False Creek to the world-famous cityscape of Yaletown and beyond to the mountains of the North Shore.

The open dining room is relaxed yet refined, wrapped in spectacular floor to ceiling windows, while the lounge offers warm intimate surroundings for evening cocktails.

The award-winning seasonal patio (patio closed October to March) catches sunlight from morning to afternoon and is an oasis of calm, disturbed only by the occasional sound of boats making their way along False Creek.

Whether dining inside or outside the views are stunning!

    Lara, our server, was amazing. She met all our expectations for our 26th wedding anniversary meal. We had a wonderful time and will return in the future.

    Really nice restaurant. Food was really good and the server did a great job. It was pretty loud due to all the glass but not enough to stop us from going back. It was a bit irritating that 4 different employees told us we only had the table for 2 hours. When we left half the restaurant was empty. They might want to take a different approach to turning tables because after the third person told us I almost left.

    Wonderful ambiance, excellent service, was not excited about the menu choices. The whole group of seven agreed that finding a dish to order was disappointing.

    Party of 10, took close to 45 minutes to take our first drink order and 1-1/2 hours before the appetizers came… Tried to order wine with dinner, but they said we’d have to finish our cocktails first because they couldn’t have two bottles of red and two bottles of white on the table at the same time… beautiful location and designed to look like a fine dining spot, but they don’t have the first clue.

    The view was amazing and the service was great. The food was absolutely fantastic but just a little on the small side.

    We went before the theatre, and the server was very attentive to our time requirements. The menu has changed for the better since our last visit, and everyone liked their dishes a lot.

    Great server and awesome patio. We has a great afternoon and the environment was fantastic. Unfortunately our mussels were a little under cooked.

    Terrible service - 30 minutes to get a cocktail everything else was just a slow. Second entree that arrived after 30 minutes was barely above room temp!!! Not edible!!! Clearly came out of the freezer and not properly warmed. Lovely location if you have time come to the patio for a drink then eat someplace else.
