About The Lobby Lounge at Fairmont Pacific Rim
The Lobby Lounge at Fairmont Pacific Rim is open from early morning until very late; the perfect destination for a group gathering at the communal tables, or an interactive experience at the sushi counter.
Named Vancouver’s first 100% Ocean Wise sushi destination by the Vancouver Aquarium, The Lobby Lounge at Fairmont Pacific Rim has become renowned for its innovative presentation and quality of ingredients, and features signature items such as one-of-a-kind sushi rolls, donburi bowls, and a lunchtime favourite – the Bento Box.
The team also recommends Omakase (chef’s choice) - a ‘surprise and delight’ element that enables the chefs to create a unique experience for our guests.
Conveniently situated in Coal Harbour, we are located at the intersection of Burrard and Cordova, a short walk from Canada Place, Vancouver Convention Centre, cruise ship terminals and the sea bus.

The Lobby Lounge at Fairmont Pacific Rim Ratings and Reviews
We loved our omakase lunch here and would definitely come back. The music, service, and food was all beyond our expectations!
Everything was beyond fabulous! Brunch was amazing and service was stellar.
Table was very wide, made it harder to talk to person across the table when it was noisy.
Impeccable fish in thicker cuts than usual with excellent rice.
Used real grated wasabi.
Ignored upon arrival, 3 staff members chatting with their backs to us and ignoring us. When I said we have a reservation , "should we just seat ourselves?" I got back, 'No , she can help you ' with a point to another girl 3 feet away and then I was shown her back again while she continued her conversation. Never , ever has anyone greeted me so poorly in any restaurant. Fast food restaurants are 200% better at 'Hello ' than this experience. Food was excellent, Service at our table was weak, at best but passable. The experience upon arrival was so bad I would not recommend ever going to the Raw Bar and that is a shame. As I said , food was excellent , too bad the service does not match.
Came in for easter and had the 5 course meal with drink paring the brunch was amazing and the price was unbeatable. Our server was the friendliest server we had in Vancouver. Everything about the entire experience was one that I will remember.
Japan Unlayered Gozen Lunch was an amazing experience. Unique cocktails，gorgeous plating presentation and delicious food. Fantastic chic atmosphere.
It was a very busy afternoon and seems like not enough servers working, had to wait a longer than usual time to see my server.
I came here for another fancy Friday lunch and was pampered by the outstanding service received. Ordered the Steelhead Salmon & Shrimp Donburi, which was great. Server came by later and asked if I would like to check out some dessert and left me the menu. I was actually interested in getting one; however, server took a bit longer than usual to take my order and I had to refuse him because I need to go back to work! The server later dropped by to take care of the bill and came along with a complimentary mini dessert to say sorry for the wait - wow! thats some great service! considering i'm not a tenant in the hotel, and was not dressed fancy! Great experience!!
first time coming here for lunch, by myself. had the best service from the Raw Bar! ordered the Chef's Omakase lunch and it was delicious! i was very full afterwards. the food def worth the price. live music during lunch was great too. already planning my next visit here.
Great place to have sushi! I love Red tuna tataki and wagyu nigiri.
Sushi itself was excellent and expertly done. Service was sub-par on this day. They spilled beer while pouring it. They were out of a sushi item which they informed me then they charged me for it and I had to ask them to remove it. I think people think it's at the Fairmont so it will be amazing. My expectations were a bit too high after seeing everyone writing glowing reviews of the Fairmont and the Raw Bar. I wanted to book for about 4pm but apparently they were 'booked' thru Open Table so I got a less ideal reservation at 3pm. When we got there, they had so many open spots even at 4-5pm. What was that all about?
I was expecting something special, especially at the price-point, which is significantly higher than comparable restaurants. While there was nothing wrong with the quality and presentation of the food, it was unremarkable and undifferentiated.
Had the service been even reasonable, I could have tolerated the outrageous price point of the food choices in this restaurant. However, we walked into the restaurant and there was not a single other customer than ourselves, and there were three waitresses on duty. With that ratio, you would think the service would have been on point. No, to the contrary - we had to wait and wave one down to even bring us a drink. Then, when we asked for a menu, she only brought us one (there were two of us). The waitresses were standing around, talking, polishing cutlery while we were the only customers in the place waiting to get our order taken. We were on a quick lunch break from a nearby conference and wanted to get in and out and enjoy some delicious sushi - which is normally my experience at places like Globefish and Ki in Calgary. I was truthfully dumbfounded by the terrible service at the Fairmont Raw Bar. Especially considering the prices were outrageous - $20 for the one sushi roll we ordered. When the waitress asked if we 'both wanted tea', we said yes assuming it would be like most places where they bring a teapot and two cups. Nope. She eventually brought two teapots - and when we got the bill,the bitter tea we were served (could barely drink one cup) cost us $12! For tea! We had ONE sushi roll to share and two cups of nasty bitter tea and it cost us $33 plus tip. Again, had we experienced incredible, engaging, polite and grateful service, this might have been excusable - but the fact we had to wait so long for service and then to pay was just ridiculous, given that once we ate there was only 1-2 more customers in the entire place. Step up your game, Raw bar, and train your staff or hire quality staff who understand customer service. We expect more when paying these prices.
Expensive. Good. Would recommend other seafood sushi places in the city but do like their vibe.
