    It’s a beautiful spot. It was our first time at the Arbutus Room and looked forward to the experience with our friends. The service was disorganized and we felt a bit forgotten. Our server Oscar however was very pleasant. Despite a couple of requests with our food choice, it either wasn’t communicated to the kitchen or the kitchen staff didn’t read the request. It was not a full dining room. We would give it another try in the hopes there has been improvement and it is a great experience. Hope this helps.

    We didn't get served for quite awhile and it wasn't too busy but the staff that I saw was very young and perhaps were overwhelmed. Other guests described staff as frazzled. I was patient and didn't mind but could understand others frustration. Perhaps their understaffed or someone called in sick.

    I make reservations for my boy friend birthday dinner! We travel all the way from Vancouver and I make some notes for my request and I also call to confirm can I have a nice table and they said will be arrenge a nice table beside the window then we can have a nice view! But so disappointed turns out a very small table just beside a table of four just like share table which is I really don’t like it! Also they need more training for the staff! I don’t think I will return again to this restaurant!

    Arbutus Room is gorgeous venue. Despite booking early and asking for window table was placed in dark back corner with absolutely no light or window beside the live music. Not only were we not able to enjoy the beauty of the venue but could not see each other or hear each other over music. Restaurant was not at capacity so can see no reason to ever seat anyone in this dark windowless corner.
