Fabulous food and great service but very noisy. Make sure to ask for a table that is not in the middle of the room - stick to the edges.

Delicious food, incredible cocktails and attentive service. One downside is the large screen TV white was playing sport, not what I expected from a fine dining restaurant.

We got the set menu and picked different options for each so we could taste each other's. OH MY GOODNESS. Each dish was better than the last. My favourite was the mushroom risotto and the charcuterie board. Great date spot. Great cocktails. Excellent service.

Our service, cocktails, dinner, and overall experience was great. The only downside to The Salted Vine, in my opinion, is that main dining room is cold and uninviting. The booths and bar area are cozy, but the rest of the restaurant could use a little love to make it more cozy, intimate, and inviting. Candles on tables, window coverings, less spotlight like lighting (more ambient), and cushions on chairs would definitely go a long way to make the environment more pleasing.

We enjoyed our meal very much and the service was nice. A good succinct menu and wine list and all the choices were good including some vegetarian.

Great food and great service. Though they need to vary their menu occasionally - too often, we've seen the same things on the menu for a couple of years.

Love the portion size of their food. The duck breast was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The food selection was unique (house-made pickle selection, for example) AND the cocktails were to die-for. It is great that Squamish has such a high quality restaurant. Perfect for a date night.

Food was great - lots of unique flavours and options. Found the restaurant cold which made me less comfortable and not as relaxed.

This is a great restaurant, the food is really good and inventive. The service is always good and the servers are knowledgeable. This restaurant is well suited for groups who like to share as some of the portions are a lot for one or even two. Definitely worth a visit.

Good value-price relation. The food is more on the traditional bistro side but then it is very well executed. Wine selection could be a bit more daring but then it is nice to see half bottles in the offer. Knowledgeable service

We received our meals before our drinks. I had intended to to sit and chat with my wife for a while but felt we could not be accommodated. 20 minutes to deliver a beer is unreasonable

This place was delicious! Cute place we stopped at on our way back from Whistler to Vancouver. The food was amazing and the service was top notch! They went out of their way to make sure all dietary restrictions were met deliciously and every single bite was fantastic! The owner came by to check on us and we had a lovely conversation. Will definitely be back next time we're visiting!

I’d give them a 5 star overall if it wasn’t for the long wait to be seated despite having a reservation and that there was no where comfortable to wait as their main entrance opens directly to the restaurant floor with extremely limited bar/lounge seating. It was rather awkward standing in the doorway hovering over other patrons while they tried to enjoy their meal with many pp standing so near their tables.
The other disappointment was after the wait to be seated, we then had another very long wait before being greeted by our server and given water. It was a very busy Friday night, but this felt very disorganized and the house wasn’t dealing with it very well.
That said, the house did acknowledge the fact that we had such a rough start and complimented our table of four with a glass of Moscato D’Asti each, which was really nice.
About the food: it was excellent.
