Baby’s First Birthday!
Thank you for the special birthday cupcake! It was sweet and thoughtful. We weren’t able to stay for the happy birthday song but the evening was perfect. We loved it.
We can’t wait to go back again and try the buffet as well.

Great food. The cold bar is excellent, but I wish it had smoked salmon or more salad options. The warm food focuses on a couple dishes and excels at it. When I went the veggies and lamb were excellent. Would like to see a soup option to make the meal even better. My second time here and would come again!

Great seafood buffet! The food was the best we had during our stay in Vancouver. There were a ton of seafood options as well as lamb and beef. The dessert station had several options offering something for everyone. Our waiter, Jose was very attentive to our every need. I would definitely recommend the Sunday buffet to anyone in Vancouver on Sunday.

A nice brunch, if a little smaller than I expected (in terms of variety). Good view of Coal Harbour from high in the Pan-Pacific Hotel. Attentive and efficient waitstaff. My only real criticism is that other brunch buffets have had items like Roast Beef, shrimp, omelettes made-to-order, etc. This was, instead, a small, high-quality breakfast buffet with a few additions like high-end juices and lots of smoked salmon. Still, not as much variety as one would expect from the price, which is quite high.

The place was essentially the extension of a cruise ship buffet on dry land. This is not a seafood buffet if that is what you are looking for. I cam only speak for the saturday dinner buffet. I am sure the brunch buffet is much better. If you want to listen to their opera singers, i might recommend sitting at the bar/lounge.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
