Amazing atmosphere always I love going there. Great service
Great view and delicious food
Lift is right on the harbour so the views and ambiance are lovely. The food is excellent. We'll be back!
Very nice patio to celebrate events. Service and food is good.
Beautiful water view. Great happy hour specials.
The restuarant is too pricy for the food they offer.
It was a hit...first class night
Thank you xo
We dined with a friends from out of town so we wanted to take advantage of the view. We had a table on top patio . The weather cooperated and outdoor heaters took the chill off. The service was great and the food delicious! I still think about my crunchy roll . A lot!
We had reservations for the restaurant and arrived & were seated early. We did however wait an extraordinary amount of time for our food and it was mediocre. I think this place has ambitions beyond its capabilities. For the price, location and hype we were disappointed with the delivery.
great food and service nice views and great parking
I seat at the patio for dinner but I notice that the heater not working well. I would like suggest make sure all heater are working due to October weather starting cold when we seat at patio. One more suggestion, consider to have more vegan menu for customers. Anyway I will come back in near future.
Dinner was great. Our server was Natasha and she was very helpful. I went with two friends and we all had the one piece Halibut and chips it was very good and portions were great.
One of the best views in Vancouver.
Their happy hour seating used to be very limited in the bar-currently while the upstairs patio is still open, the ground level bar area has expanded to much more seating capacity. What a bonus. Excellent calamari and spicy tuna roll. They used to have more sushi on the happy hour menu...please bring it back!
Love the brunch here! I visit almost weekly. Highly recommend the Crab Hash!
Beautiful view and exceptional food.
Clean restaurant, food portion are very small for the price, cream brulee was very bitter not sure how they made them. drink menu is pages but food limited option i was a bit disappointed. Beautiful restaurant, timely service, polite and clea. I wish the restaurant would add more sea food on their menus and the portion wish was more adequate. without started i would leave hungry
It was an amazing experience. The ambience and view are unmatched. Service and food was super! Overall very happy as the first time visitors!
Had a great Happy Hour!
The best place ever , from food to atmosphere .
Was worth every dollar
Beautiful ocean setting!!
The place is excellent but the food is bad
The food and service always excellent.
I truly appreciate that the background music is never loud which makes the ambience relaxing and classy
Had a wonderful lunch. Everything was great. Server checked in with me at the perfect moments. Everything served to me was presented thoughtfully and tasted just as good as it looked. I would go back again. The view was the cherry on top.
This is a new city favourite for my wife & I. Trekking in from Langley for our 4th staycation in the city, since June. Stayed at Marriott Pinnacle, Pan Pacific & this time at Weston Bayshore. The Lift is a three minute walk from the Bayshore. My wife & I came here two days in a row end of August, our last staycation. So of course, so close, this time, easy decision to come & do Happy Hour. The menu & food are great. The view & ambience are excellent. And, of course the service is tops. Tanya looked after our table marvellously. Did a TripAdvisor review in August. Maybe I will do another for this visit. But, you know, us retired folk don’t like working so much, anymore. Bottom line, The Lift is a ‘go to’ place for us, anytime we visit the city. Give it a try, if you haven’t.
Lovely hidden gen
We started with scallops & oysters, both very flavorful, followed by halibut and tuna mains.
Well prepared, and fair portions.
Overall, a nice west coast experience.
Oh, and phone ahead for the parking details.
We made reservations, called to confirm our 8:45pm reservations. We were told we had to wait, no big issues. We finally were taken to our seats that were outside on the roof top patio with no heater near by to start with. My wife and I were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and were dressed for inside dining. We had to ask to be seated somewhere else to be told there was nothing available.
We order our drinks and they offered to remove the temporary rain structure to bring over a patio heater. It’s Sept 26th in Vancouver and it had been raining most of the day. It was windy and cold and this was the solution. Finally after 40mins a table came available on the patio but somewhat covered. It was much better than the previous place but my wife was freezing. We ended up rushing our meal as we were just too uncomfortable. It would have been better if the restaurant had just let us know in the beginning so we could have made a choice. We ended up not enjoying our dinner and drinks and it was not a good experience for our anniversary.
We totally understand it’s Covid protocols but give your customer the heads up to make a choice. We just were looking so forward to an elegant evening.
It was such a wonderful time we all had there 👌
Setting was spectacular and the food was off the chart! Try the Red Crab (Atlantic Ocean) Cakes... these were absolutely brilliant. It was so nice to sit by the water and enjoy our evening. Our server Trish was lovely and was able to explain how everything we ordered was made. We felt safe and there was plenty of street parking.
Happy Hour. Awesome.
Excellent food, excellent drink, excellent service and amazing atmosphere, sit on the patio if there is availability. Great place
Superbe endroit, tranquille avec vue incroyable sur une marina. Les entrées (crab cake) et le repas (flétan) étaient incroyables. À refaire!
The staff at the Lift were amazing. There attention to detail was noticeable. I brought my mother for lunch and wanted to sit on the deck but in a spot that will not be too cold for my mom. The ladies choose a wonderful spot for us and brought one of the deck heaters over and placed it next to my mom so she would not be chilly. Very thoughtful!!!
Fabulous birthday dinner for my husband - he loved his Prime Rib and the complementary dessert. The view and service were over the top - thanks for making this occasion memorable for us!
Amazing! Stunning service on the patio by one of your seasoned servers. She was so informative and lovely. The fish and chips was the highlight of our meal. Thank you!
As usual everything was outstanding. Thanks for a great brunch.
Great patio and service
The location is amazing, and the ambience certainly can’t be beat. We have dined here several times before and always came away very happy. For whatever reason, this visit the service was virtually non-existent. We ordered a bottle of wine and apples to start, then only placed our order once the apples were done as the server never came back to check on us after placing the original order. Our entrees were delivered, and again, no one checked back in to see how things were. Fact is the plates were lukewarm, as was the food. Water glasses sat empty (personal pet peeve), and had to catch the severs attention to order some additional wine. The place was not that busy, so hard to understand the lack of personal attention and mediocre service.
Service was awesome. Food was good but ambience was better.
