LIFT Bar Grill View
For a quintessential Vancouver experience, LIFT sets the stage with sweeping harbour, Stanley Park and coastal mountain views and the city's only oceanfront rooftop deck. A sexy, sophisticated restaurant and lounge, LIFT is located on the tranquil seawall in picturesque Coal Harbour minutes from Vancouver's financial district, major hotels and the Vancouver Convention Centre. A showcase of stunning architectural design, LIFT west coast hospitality. Enjoy a fresh perspective on regionally sourced specialties and the bounty of the Pacific Ocean.From floor-to-ceiling windows that vanish in the summer to an illuminated honey onyx bar and inviting outdoor fireplaces, soak in the relaxed yet elegant setting.
We sat outside for brunch and it was absolutely beautiful and calming. The staff were all awesome and the Prawn Benny was amazing. Highly recommend it.
the location is amazing .. the patio to be precise .. more choices on the menu would be good. The food is good, but you do feel you re paying for the location.
We had exceptional service and the food was amazing. Will definitely go back
A beautiful view and lovely patio. Our server was great and the food was tasty.
We decided to go on a date night my wife and I. Wanted something close to the water in a calm area, so decided on Lift. The place is nice, ambience in the top deck was soothing and nice, view at sunset was spectacular and, and the waitress was very nice, helpful and informative. The food was good, until I found a bone in the salmon dish I ordered. I informed the waitress and she obviously told the manager. But all we got was a 10% discount "on that dish"!!!. Knowing good customer service and a mistake like that in a place of this caliber, the whole dish should have been free and maybe throw in a dessert for free as well or maybe a gift card. Anyhow, except for that issue and how it was managed the place was a good choice for a date night.
Very disappointed in the fish and chips.
It was to cold on one side and to hot on the other. Sun blinds did not work.
Excellent food and ambiance.
Everything was great! Servers were helping each other out. Food, view and atmosphere were excellent. Will definitely go back again.
Always love the Lift and my guest from the Toronto area travel industry also was impressed
We just got engage a few days before and were sharing with our neice and her boyfriend
server was not very friendly and accommodating .....
I wanted to treat my friend who was visiting from Toronto to a nice 30th birthday dinner. Our server completely disregarded the fact that it was her bday. The service was very short, unfriendly and did not even check on how our food was once. We also felt rushed out and the food wasn’t good either. Our server took both our entree plates with only a few bites taken each and didn’t even ask us if we enjoyed it or if anything was wrong. (Both plates were $40-$50 dishes)
As someone who worked as a waitress for years I am very understanding when it’s busy but there was no excuse for the lack of service we received for a $250 dinner. We sincerely would have had a better time at a food court. I recommend a drink at Lift because of the views but I hope they can find some better staff!
Wonderful place with very good food and the best view
Had a great time! Thank you
Great service, beautiful setting and fast delicious food. Unbeatable setting! We'll be back for sure!!
We arrived during happy hour and the menu was very limited. However, the food was awesome and the patio view was amazing. Service was OK. Definitely would recommend this for just about any occasion.
Beautiful view , good service and food is good and price is right . Recommended
Had a fabulous all round evening at the Lift. Was great for date night.
Fabulous food, setting, and wait staff. A wonderful way to celebrate our 32nd anniversary with good friends.
I had the Caesar salad and tempura shrimp. My husband had the halibut fish and chips.
The Caesar salad was very bland. Try red wine vinegar in your recipe. The tempura was not crisp. Please put sauce in the side.
Fish was greasy.
Surprisingly lacking flavour in the dishes. Nothing really came together from a flavour standpoint.
LIFT is a great experience of Vancouver in food, ambiance, and scenery. A must for both residents and visitors!
The uncomplicated menu has something for everyone and is available on-line. I enjoyed the tasty POKE Bowl while the other guest loved traditional fish and chips...The wine list is relatively small but with some very interesting selections. I found wine to be on the pricer side....nothing less than $50 a bottle. The view from the upper deck gives the impression you are eating on the deck of a cruise ship. The magnificent view includes Coal Harbour, with Stanley Park and mountains providing the spectacular background. Service is friendly professional and attentive. We have just added The Lift to the list of preferred restaurants in Vancouver's west end. To avoid being disappointed I would recommend you make a reservation.
Server was amazing. The food was only okay. We did happy hour so didn’t pay full prince thankfully. Nice view
Excellent view overlooking the harbour. Feel like dinning inside a cruise ship restaurant. Food was so so but the environment offsets everything. Service was top notch.
Unfortunately the food was bland and rather unflavored. We had high expectations but were thoroughly disappointed! We will not be back.
Staff, food, beverages, ambiance: amazing! Well done Lift!
Our table on the outside patio was perfect. The background of the vessels on the water and extensive views of the city are worth it. The only criticism is their menu that only consisted of Brunch mainly, on a Saturday even though it states online their regular menu items available. Might want to update that OpenTable.
The server's assistant was so good! Very dedicated and attentive to our needs. The experience was great overall. Would come again. Only downside was not being able to have a proper lunch at 12:30. We had to have a second breakfast instead.
The server was excellent but she did forget one extra order and some sugar for tea, however she was very friendly and covered our desert. She was lovely though
Food was way below average in terms of taste. I wouldn't mind the food as much if the servers and hostesses didn't display such an attitude problem. We felt as if we were some sort of burden on them! If we had simple questions regarding the menu, for example I asked which one of the mocktails they would recommend, the response was an eyebrow raise followed by "any of them" as a reply. Not very helpful at all. Typically on the way out, the hostess at a restaurant would offer a kind word or at least a smile or a "thank you for coming"...we smiled at the girl at the desk and she looked back at us as if we had 3 heads. The views however were lovely, and that is the only upside to this place, other than that I would not recommend it to anyone.
Great views, good drinks, and the food was decent. My steak was a bit fatty, but not a huge deal.
Server was very sweet after a bit of a mix up with the reservation. Not her fault... we would come back again
Excellent food. The mussels were outstanding. I had the sea bass and my husband had the prawn & scallop linguine. The drinks are equally fantastic. One of the best cosmos I’ve had in a while!
The food, service and location were first class. And the Happy Hour from 3-6pm was well priced. Great views of the Stanley Park side of Coal Harbour.
Particularly the salmon steak was excellent! Would recommend The Lift to anyone!
Starters were amazing, but mains below average
Such great food and a great vibe. Amazing views on the patio. Just beautiful
Employees are all really kind and service was great!
Outdoors was perfect for a date!!! Best place in Van for sure
Definitely a must in Vancouver. Will recommend it always!
Amazing setting, fresh food and overall excellence!
