Not the best experience, I was surprised by the poor food quality. The beef burger and chicken burger were both just frozen patties that you would expect in a 2-3 star diner. The appetizers were good and what I would expect from a cafe inside Holts.
What was most disappointing was the service by the hostess.
When I arrived I mentioned to her twice that I had a reservation for 2 people under my name . She didn’t respond and quickly walked me into the restaurant and took me to a table with two south Asian people already at this table and somehow thought that I was part of this table because I was south Asian and they were waiting for two more guests.
Love everything. Benedict eggs are so delicious. Even cocktails were awesome. Very satisfied.
Excellent Service and food quality is high. Would highly recommend!
If you are looking for a restaurant to celebrate birthday, don’t choose this one. I was being told by the restaurant manager that if we need to cut our own birthday cake in the restaurant they will charge us $5 dollar PER SLICE. I was so disappointed that, and the way the manager told us is very impolite. Of course, we didn’t choose to cut the cake here. Usually, most of the restaurant even offer birthday treats. But this one not even saying a word of Happy Birthday… the customer service is really bad.
Also, if you are very hungry don’t come to this one either… they are really slow. We waited for almost half hour, the food finally came.
It was a really terrible dine in experience. I would definitely not recommend ppl come here.
Good is over cooked, English muffins were served code, fries were saggy , service was slow , very disappointed
Food was good and room was comfortable . We would definitely come back.
Great service plus fantastic food equals an amazing time!
Everything from the service to the food was amazing! We were going out for the first time in over a year, And we were very impressed with the atmosphere, and it was very quiet and easy for us to talk even though the restaurant was full. We had a wonderful time and are going to book another dinner there over the Christmas holidays! Thank you
Food was mediocre. The steak was really tough and some portions could not be swallowed. The salmon was just OK with a little potatoes around it. Could’ve used some lemon or citrus to live in it up.
The café food has gone downhill, it use to have more French flavours/plates to offer. My side salad had wilted mushy leaves in the pre-bought mix and my mushrooms on toast was barely warm. Although our server was polite she rushed us to order and kept coming to our table every 10 minutes, she wouldn't leave us alone, even after telling her we were in no rush . I reserved 4 days ahead and requested a banquette table and was ignored. It use to be my favourite hidden quiet cafè to introduce friends to but alas no more.
Love this place. Best secret spot downtown!
We were there for lunch and found out they only serve from their brunch menu but not from their lunch menu. My wife was a little disappointed as we ordered from their lunch menu before. That said, lunch was good and the service adequate. Would be nicer if the room was a little brighter as it feels a little claustrophobic.
Really enjoyed a pleasant lunch at Holts cafe after shopping. It’s a quiet little oasis with great food. Recommend.
Lovely lunch! Thank you
Food was delicious, however, the server did not know what Sauvignon Blanc was (and there were only three different varietals of white wine.) 🤷♀️
Worst experience that I ever had in Vancouver.
Lovely courteous staff. Great brunch, convenient stop while shopping at Pacific Center
If you you're looking for the best eggs benny in Vancouver, look no further!
Was great as usual -- wonderful salad with salmon -- and a great server.
Paper napkins!!! And super cheap ones. Service was fine; food was good. Slow to bring bill even though caught several servers’ eyes. I would return but perhaps much later post COVID
Service and food was excellent. Waitresses were very attentive and friendly. Great place for a special occasion.
Nothing too special food quality sub par for brunch! Asked for medium
Poached eggs and were so cooked that the yolk was rock hard
The menu is really terrible and the food not at all good. The portions for something like avocado on toast was ridiculous at any price but for $18 at least give more than a teaspoon of avocado.
Won’t be rushing back any time soon
Never got to our table! Hostess gave away the last table, (ours) to walk-ins who were in line right in front of us.
Then she claimed it was a mis understanding and that we would have to wait until one of the occupied tables finished their meal and paid their bill. So they don’t respect the reservation system and give priority to staff at Holts who walk in for lunch. Won’t go back.
Not much food options on the menu probably due to re-opening of indoor dinning. More choices for mocktails and cocktails would be great.
Everyone had a really good time. Service was amazing, food was good and ambiance was peaceful
We ordered 3 dishes and they were all delicious. Nice and quiet environment.
Amazing service, staff were very attentive. Food was delicious.
Food was great with fairly large portion, but social distancing between other table was uncomfortably too narrow.
Food can be a little bit more fancy. Soup was a little cold at serving. Otherwise Service was great!
It was a great place to eat, very polite, fast service and over all a great experience
This place was just “ok”. Not worth going for a 2nd time.
Lovely service, friendly staff, great food, thank you!
Another excellent dining experience at the Holts Cafe. The food is aways great. Both our meals were cooked perfectly. Jessa, our server, was outstanding. She engaged in casual conversation, but was very attentive, and professional.
The dining room was busy throughout the whole time there, but the spacing in between the tables were sufficient, and the noise level was low enough that we could have a conversation.
I would definitely recommend and look forward to going back.
Always nice and fancy place to get lunch !
Great service..great food..will definitely dine here again!
The food is so delicious! We got so many options and they were amazing! I will definitely keep coming back! The staff are all so friendly, and attentive!
Great food, service was average. Overpriced. .......
The food was mediocre at best. The server brought food to the table before our drinks. We had to ask for them and they still took another 5 minutes. We were having wine so this didn’t seem reasonable. They also called me 30 mins into my meal and asked if I was still coming yet the host took my name when we checked in. I’m not sure I’ll be back
