 (Vancouver)·Dined on December 17, 2017

I booked a table of 8 for a Saturday evening at 6:30 pm with friends before the Bright Nights Train. Unfortunately it was not an enjoyable dinner. We were still eating our dinner when the servers started placing chairs on the empty tables around us, and then our server came and asked us if we wanted coffee or desert, or any other drinks as they would be closing the bill. We ordered another drink, and then completed our dinner. The servers turned up the lights very brightly, and then they started loading in the buffet from the event next door. The servers were then eating their dinner around us and we were asked to settle out bills. We had to wait outside in the rain, as our tickets for the train were not until 9:30. We got to the train at 8:45 and they were very helpful in getting us on early, as it was a cold and wet night. The Stanley is a very lovely atmosphere and so nice to have a pub style restaurant in the lovely pavillion building and close to the train. The food was really great, but the management of the staff, customer service and the lack of information on the hours of operation is very lacking.

The service was quite fine once we finally got some. We arrived and were passed by repeatedly by staff. Eventually we were seated where we were again left waiting so long that we were debating on leaving. The whole time this was happening it wasn't even busy. Once our waitress came over everything began to flow quite well. The sangria was good and so was the food. Neither of which took long to arrive once ordered which was surprising given our experience when we arrived. A little on three pricey side but we were there for happy hour which made it a better value. Surprised it wasn't busier for happy hour because the setting in the park is beautiful.

We enjoyed a wonderful experience on August 19. We had a difficult time getting there as we were rerouted due to a cycling event and then got caught in a traffic jam due to an accident but each time we called to explain that we were going to be late we were treated with care and understanding. Our waitress was amazing! She was competent, friendly and most accommodating at all times. We all enjoyed our meals.

The only negative was the one washroom, in the building, for both men and women! Both upstairs and downstairs lineups were long!

We will be back!

Our experience was disappointing which is a shame as we had a good experience last time. It is so convenient to go there for dinner before TUTS which we attend yearly. There were 7 of us and we did not feel any of us got good value for our money. Some portions were very large but did not arrive at our table nice and hot. The pumpkin ravioli was a very small portion and was not all that tasty. The lady who ordered that meal was left not only disappointed in her choice but still hungry as well. The waiter although friendly at first ignored us for most of the meal and did not ask if we wanted dessert or coffee and just assumed we were done. He brought us the bill and we then had to say we wanted dessert and coffee. He then was unable to split our bill into 7 separate bills and after 2 tries he gave up and split the bill 7 ways which was not at all fair to our driver who did not have an alcoholic drink. Sadly we all left the table feeling frustrated and disappointed. This was not our experience last summer when we all had a delicious meal and great service. A few of us felt we may have gotten better service if we had been ordering more drinks or if we had been a group of 20 somethings rather than a group of 50 somethings.

Great meal. Great experience. I loved the server's plaid shirts!

The only thing that would have made it better was the timing. I realize that the restaurant was busy but our drinks came with the meal instead of beforehand (while we had quite a lengthy wait, maybe 15 - 20 minutes). It would have been appreciated to have a chance to enjoy our beers before the dinner arrived.
