Superb Cantonese cuisine with authenticity and creativity. The comfortable and somewhat elegant environment provides the best overall Chinese food dining experience in Vancouver. I also tried out a couple of other top tier Chinese restaurants with them failing miserably to recognize the effect the dining environment has on the overall dining experience.

My only criticism is do they really have to be located in the Trump Hotel, really, I had to cover my eyes and nose in order for me to walk into the building!

MOTT 32 HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST AWARDED RESTAURANTS IN VANCOUVER.

Fancy high end dim sum with a bit of a twist adding expensive ingredients with a flare. Outstanding quality. Wonderful service. Amazing wine choices. You won't regret coming here.

This is one of the best restaurants for Pekin duck in Vancouver! The duck pairs very well with a nice bottle of Krug champagne. The service is impeccable. I highly recommend Mott 32.

The server was far too pushy; Have you decided what to order several times. Food comes very fast. Asking if you want desert in the second you finish. Get the bill on the table before we ask. We really got the feeling that they wanted us out as soon as possible. Very annoying the constant push, and took away the pleasure from the dinner,

Our meal was absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding. We should definitely return. One beef, however. We were told that the Peking Duck would take 45 minutes to appear, so we ordered many other dishes to sample. We had not done justice to these dishes, when the duck arrived, a mere 30 minutes later. It was very rushed and I suggest they serve the duck first, and leave us to sample further delectable dishes after it, so that we do not feel obliged to eat everything as quickly as possible.

Enjoyed the service that mott 32. Our server was polite and had great suggestions on what to order due to not having a dish we wanted. The other employees who we interacted with were warm and welcoming as well. The food was perfect. It’s a nice twist on Chinese food. We brought our friend who isn’t adventurous with food and was afraid they wouldn’t enjoy dishes but they ended up eating everything we had ordered. Overall great experience would dine here for special occasions

You have to really think about what yoj gonna order... Last time came here I ordered many dishes thag I don't really like which left me a bad impression about motto 32. This time everything was perfect. I enjoyed my 22ed birthday. Very good place for date, business meal and special occasion. A little bit pricy but I think everything worth it! Good materials, nice service and perfect environment.

The food was very good but the restaurant is very loud, to the point that talking and being heard was difficult. There were large groups of people close by, which made this problem even worse. There was a distinct smoky smell in the restaurant, that was overpowering. When I asked about it, the server stated they were having problems with their H VAC.
The service was very good, including the sommelier who had great suggestions about accompanying wines.

One of the best Chinese restaurants in Vancouver. This restaurant is the only one that can offer you an experience of real East meets West Chinese cuisine. They have traditional Chinese style dishes as well as fusion Chinese. My favorite dishes are the Fried rice in fish soup, the steam grouper, lobster mapo tofu and beef rib.

The service was terrible for a restaurant of this caliber. The drinks never came out on time. You had to repeatedly ask for a waiter. The food came out in the complete wrong order. It’s a wonderful setting and the food was good when it finally arrived but I would not recommend this if you’re looking for top-notch service.

It was so good! Since we had our wedding dinner here it's been almost two years, although the staff still remembers us as well as what dishes and cocktails we liked the most. We don't usually write reviews, but experience you get in more 32 is so exceptional, we hope everyone get to experience it.

Absolutely the best Chinese food I’ve ever eaten in my life. Short ribs and pork were to die for. Service excellent. Only negative was it was next to Trump Tower which I could not stand being anywhere near that TRUMP name.

First, despite boasting of its excellent service, no one came to speak with us for more than 20 minutes after we selected our choice of water. Then the food was mediocre at best; eg, the stir fry was oily and underseasoned. The chicken was also non-discript, and the cocktails were also below expectations. Overall, it was definitely not worth the cost.

The Service is definitely 5 stars . Everything is served family style, so we tried little bites of many different things. Sweet and sour pork was a huge hit as was the dinner dim sum. The smoked sea bass not as popular at our table. Next time we will try noodles or fried rice. The restaurant is nice, but not too stuffy. I will mention the service is really good.

Food was excellent but timing in the service extremely poor. Had preordered a Peking Duck that needs some time for preparation, announced 45mn, but came on the table only 30 minutes after our arrival in the restaurant, all together with the cocktails ordered as aperitif, and the starters, and the wine.
Had to send back the Peking Duck asking to keep it warm in order for us to have a chance to enjoy our aperitif, then the starters, in good order.
Obviously when time came to call for the reheated Peking Duck, it was ok but not as it is intended to be.
We let the Maître D know about this extremely poor timing. Reply was put on Chinese tradition which is to eat all dishes at the same time. May be right for fast food every day meal, but definitely false for high end meals as this Westernized restaurant intends to serve.
Manager, maître D, and waiters need a good refreshment from a culinary school to learn how to keep an eye on their customers experience and deal properly with a multi course service timing.

Extraordinary food. There is plenty of good dim sum and Chinese food in Vancouver, so the bar is high. But this is something special. Highly recommend you try duck, iberico pork, smoked cod, anything with truffles or black garlic.
