Food was good, not great. Service was attentive but our mains took forever. There were only 3 other parties in the restaurant and our mains didn’t come for over an hour after ordering. The explanation was the bar on the other side was full and there were a lot of room service orders. Not good. View is still great.

My former colleagues and I usually meet here now and again for lunch. We like it quiet so we can talk but today the ambient noise was a little greater than usual due to some event being set up on the outdoor patio. Nevertheless, we'd have appreciated a table further away from the activity especially since I'd asked for a quiet area when I reserved. Other than that, the food and service was excellent as usual. Oh, perhaps the coffee is a bit overpriced at $8.00! Just a regular coffee, nothing fancy!

We had made a reservation as we were celebrating our anniversary. The service was for the most part very good. Dishes were cleared promptly when we were finished. We were initially given a table right in front of the pasta station and I requested another table as I felt there would be too much foot traffic going by our table and smelling the pasta cooking while we were trying to enjoy our meal was not pleasant. It was a special evening after all.

The music did not compare to our previous experience when the singers were Edd Wright, Dolores Scott and Ingrid Facdo. The opera singers were not as good. They were with Burnaby Lyric Opera and I think a couple of them were still students. We didn't hear many familiar pieces. They sang a few pieces from Carmen that I have not heard before and I have the recording that I listen to frequently. I enjoy light opera but I found for us most of the pieces were pretty obscure. One of female singers was brutal when she hit the high notes it was really harsh and hard on the ears. It was not nice music to enjoy while you were having your meal. I will check the entertainment schedule next time before we make reservations.
The food while good was not as good as on our previous visit. They didn't have steelhead trout but instead had snapper in a citrus sauce. Snapper is usually a very mild fish but this dish had a very strong and unpleasant taste to it. I have a feeling that the fish was spoilt. Even although it is a buffet they gave us a special dessert of caramel cheesecake and they put a candle on it for our anniversary. It was really good but we were so full that we ended up leaving part of it.

It’s really a shame the evening turned out the way it did because I had high expectations because of our last experience

We would still return but maybe not as frequently as we would have based on our previous experience. I would definitely check the entertainment schedule before making a reservation.

We had an amazing brunch, celebrating my husband’s birthday. It wasn’t too busy so we were able to request a table on the patio- which we haven’t done before. Our waiter was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was spectacular and the chefs were helpful, as always.

The food was pretty good, the service was absolutely terrible though. Our server was basically non existent through out the entire meal, when my wife ordered another drink it took a good 20 minutes for her to get, my water glass was empty through out basically the entire meal. When we voiced our concerns to management she dismissed our concerns as if it was no big deal.

Ambiance was very nice overlooking the water and mountains. Food was typical buffet, nothing fancy considering $60/head. It was nice to have live piano man playing. There was a hair in the sushi I was about to eat and all I got was a simple apology from a Manager. Server didn't seem to really care about it though. Would I go back, probably not worth it and turned off by the hair in the sushi considering it's at the Pan Pacific Hotel! Overall, wouldn't really recommend it.

the setup is pretty nice. However, the staff was not responding fast enough. It took them about 5 mins or more to ask for our order after us sitting down.
Food is below average IMO. Too sweet for most things. Tenderloin was ok.

Went for Valentine's dinner.

Oysters were nice...I prefer my more chilled though.

Sable fish taste was lost and overwhelmed by the shitake mushrooms

Tenderloin was very tender. Sauce on it was a bit sweet.

Dessert was very good...chocolate larva cake was sweet and balanced by raspberry sorbet and fruits

Overall a very nice experience with a view of snow falling outside.

The restaurant was super in accommodating my friend with food allergies by alerting the kitchen staff & then have the chef offered an alternative menu option while keeping to the cost of the Dine Out Menu. Furthermore, my group was extremely pleased with the bonus of an opera performance throughout our dining time. We’ll definitely come back for the Saturday Opera evening buffet! Food, service, ambiance are all excellent!!! We have thoroughly enjoyed our evening! Thank you!!!

Went there for Dineout Vancouver. The meal was better than I expected. It was good value and the portions were of good size. The dishes were creative and the flavor was varied. You can taste the different flavours in each course and overall was a good meal. The only thing was that the main meal came lukewarm which made the meal considerably less enjoyable.
