Join us for our Easter Sunday Brunch, April 1st, 2018
Based on a Google search of Vancouver’s best brunches, we decided to give Oceans 999 a try. Housed in Canada Place, it’s a wonderful location with views of the water throughout the restaurant. Seated promptly, and was a little surprised that it wasn’t’ more crowded. I gather it’s priced a little on the itch side, even for Vancouver, but the views make it worth a special occasion visit. The website menu seemed to build up the variety a little more than what reality turned out to be. There was certainly enough for everyone, but I guess I expected a more lavish spread. Food and service turned out to be very good. Not sure if I’d dine there again, given that there are so many choices within walking distance from where we stayed.
We went for the Opera Buffet on a Saturday evening, which included a pleasant entertainment. The buffet-style food was great and service very pleasant. This is a lovely space and the photos online don’t always do it justice.
I love the brunch at Oceans 999! My family comes here for every special occasion (mother's day, father's day, etc.) and often just for the Sunday market brunch. The chefs are highly skilled, the service is always fantastic, and the view is breathtaking. Highly recommended!
Excellent brunch expensive but lots choices
it was a wonderful sunday brunch. service was awesome. food was great.
great service and good food. a bit expensive but it's all good.
The menu provided by the open table app is inaccurate. One of the main reason I booked this restaurant is because of one entree in the menu. Quite disappointed when I discovered that the entree is not available.
Great service and entertainment during opera buffet night. Only wish the chef at the pasta station was more friendly. The singers also did a shout out for all the folks celebrating an occasion and staff brought out cakes with candles which shows a true appreciation for their guests
Opera Buffet was highly enjoyable. Stayed the whole evening!
Food was outstanding. Server failed to ask if we wanted a cocktail and then disappeared until mid meal. Was a little noisy, but don’t know how you could improve on that in such an open space. All other service staff was excellent.
everything we had was a step above out prior 48 hours of meals. Fresh ingredients, thoughtfully prepared and presented and delivered timely.
They did not advertise a mandatory service charge of 18% and I found it a bit insulting they applied one to our bill for a small group of five people. Normal restaurants are up front about such charges. It is as if they thought I would stiff them on the tip. I usually leave 20% so they lost about 5 or 6 dollars and my custom.
Oceans 999 is a great place to go for an anniversary. The service and view were amazing! If you are a meat lover, this is not the place for you. The pasta bar is delicious, as is the assortment of grilled vegetables, but there are few meat selections. Though we are not typically opera fans, we loved the singers. This is a unique experience that is perfect for a special occasion. We will definitely go back again.
I really enjoyed the performance at the Italian Opera Buffet. Good food, beautiful view, and great live music! Nice variety at the buffet, although a bit limited for proteins for the entrees. The value I rated as 'outstanding' mainly because I know one of the performers, so my meal was complimentary. Doesn't get any more outstanding than free! I would have found it a bit pricey otherwise, but okay for an infrequent experience.
Have been to Opera Pasta buffet, none of the entertainments and food have been disappointed. We enjoyed every single second of our time being there. Food is excellent, fresh and well prepared + presented. Services are great, friendly.
Will do it again and again.
We booked for 1:15pm for market buffet. When we arrived, many stations were already empty. A bit disappointing!
We went to Father’s Day brunch. It was a great sounding menu but food quality was lacking. Service was okay but not like I would expect when dining at Pan Pacific restaurant. Maybe because the gratuity was automatically added onto the check.
All good except for roast beef. Barbecued, very dry and unpleasant (for us) barbecue sauce.
Otherwise great service and good selection.
The view was beautiful; service was great; food was not memorable. Limited menu. Not innovative. Hoping for much more.
The Saturday evening Opera buffet was enjoyable with a modest selection of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Price has gone up significantly over time and at the time of this review was 59$ per adult.
Great food & good service. This time even the music -- the pianist
Our waitress, Natalie, was pleasant, friendly and efficient.
Lovely location. Tasty pasta customizable with a wide range of ingredients to choose from. Wide variety in the cold appetizers, salad bar selection. Hot entrees were always fresh and tasty. Delicious selection from the dessert buffet. Staff from the host/hostess to the servers provided attentive and friendly service. Very pleasant dining experience with delicious food, wonderful service, and delightful entertainment in a beautiful setting.
We are here for breakfast and really enjoyed it. We had the pancakes and poached eggs with salmon and rosti. Both were really good. The atmosphere was chilled with good views over Vancouver waterfront. The only minor issue we had was quite slow service.
Mother’s Day brunch. Food and ambience was fantastic. The ribs were sold out by the time we started at 1pm. Prime rib was dry. Everything else was on point! Mother had a great time and a full stomach!
Wonderful Mother’s Day buffet. Lots of delicious choices.
Mother’s Day Brunch
I took my mum for the mothers day brunch and it was exceptional. The food was outstanding and the service was first class. I definetly reccomend oceans 999 for a speical occasion or their sunday brunch. If you love sushi you will be blown away how fresh tatsy their nigiri and sushi rolls are. Worth a visit!
The food was delicious. The opera singers were great. Unfortunately the service was terrible. We had to continually flag a service person down to get any service. We asked twice for water which never came. We were there for two hours. We had to flag down staff to order drinks. They never came by to offer coffee with dessert. There were dinner plates left in the table even after we’d had dessert. We asked one if the servers if they were short staffed and she replied no.
Good selections especially desserts as we went for the Italian opera buffet.
When we booked the reservation, we didn't realize that on that night there was only a buffet for an all inclusive price, but we were glad that it was. There was a great selection of Salads to start, then a Pasta Bar (that had Gluten free Pasta as an option), and a good selection of toppings and sauce. There were also several options for cooked vegetables, fish, and other items. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and efficient. We would go again
It was our anniversary, we always go to this restaurant for our big occasions. It is very special on Saturday nights when there is the Opera buffet. If you like Opera and great food, it is the place to go. But overall what is absolutely over the top, is the service. Smiles. Promptness. Professional.
Sunday Brunch is good value with a good variety of options to choose from. Lucy the hostess has a very warm welcoming smile and guided us to our table exchanging pleasantries. She made us feel very welcome. The staff are attentive, friendly and professional. The young man and ladies replenishing the buffett were on top of everything even advising us that they were replenishing the items that were running low. One of the roasts offered today was Lamb may I suggest you have some mint sauce/jelly readily available as mint goes so well with lamb. They team quickly presented it to our table when asked. The female guitarist Vicky had a nice soothing voice and good repertoire of songs. Thank you for an enjoyable Sunday Brunch
A girlfriend and I decided to branch out and try a new dinner spot. We didn't realize there would be opera singers, not my friend's favorite.... however, she's changed her views! The combination of enjoying dinner, with a program of opera singers flowed very well. The gentleman on the piano was superbly talented. The 4 singers seemed very relaxed and enjoying themselves; we enjoyed the soloists, and duos; mixture of songs, some I recognized from Carmen. The Pan Pacific is so expansive, high ceilings, mountain views, lots of space between tables - a rarity in restaurants. Loved the evening; will definitely be back. Oh, the buffet was excellent - not overdone with fillers; exquisite dishes they kept filling up, pasta bar, tasty deserts. Staff very attentive..kudos to them.
Great location and food, considering the price we expect more variety of foods. They could include more food in main part.
Greasy food. Only few people having dinner. It has a nice view but the food was only OK (compared with other places around).
Our coffee cups had small cracks and stains. Lipstick mark too. There was an empty dirty creamer at our table when we were initially seated .I don’t think it’s hygienic to have creamers already at the table which were used by the previous guests. All the tables had creamers which probably do not get washed after guests have left and just keep getting refilled and reused. Yuck. Our server wasn’t the most attentive. Although friendly when she was there. The selection of food has definitely gone down from what I remembered from the past. Especially the dessert table. Not impressive at all. The overall quality of food wasn’t too bad.
As always, Italian Opera Buffet is Special - we keep coming back for special occasions.
The restaurant was closed but they still had a table set up for us near the window. Overall it was good but not exactly the experience I was expecting.
Good selection of food. Service was good. Server was very polite and funny.
