We returned after a rather poor service experience on our last visit (a Valentines Day prix fixe menu) with a generous coupon provided by the Manager encouraging us to give them another chance. The service this time was outstanding - quite possibly one of the best service experiences we've ever had. The food was very good.

We were celebrating a special birthday of a friend who is no longer with us. We opted to cheers the day to her with water but our Server ( I feel awful that I can’t recall her name!)was so sweet and brought us sparking pomegranate juice with a strawberry. It was so greatly app rotated and our friend would have approved the choice!
The rest of our service was top notch and the food was fabulous as always!

Surprising find in the city. Great for our business lunch today. I had the Thai Noodle bowl, delicately spiced, and delicious. The Cobb salad with the Salmon looked picture perfect and beautifully presented. The restaurant was light and airy and the windows were great for people watching. Service was great, not rushed, but available. This is much more than a hotel restaurant, it could stand alone as a great restaurant in the city. I will be back. Great lunch, service and coastal vibe.

This is the 5th time we've been to the Showcase Restaurant and every time the serving and kitchen staff have done an outstanding job catering to our allergies. We are both allergic to Wheat and Dairy products which, for many restaurants create significant challenges. This is NOT the case at the Showcase Restaurant. The meals there have been outstanding in both taste and presentation and we look forward to returning once again.
I'd be remiss if I didn't also compliment the serving staff. Every time we have had efficient, knowlegable and pleasant staff who have always made us feel welcome and no bother - despite our allergy issues.

Well done all around!

We had the halibut which was the slightest bit overdone, which would have been fine, however the dish was salty.
Very nice sevice, thought it has more of a bar feeling than restaurant.

Showcase is a great spot for meetings. Staff are courteous and professional every time. Food is never off point. It is central to the financial district, as well as some great night time spots if you're showing out of towners around.

Unfortunately, I won't be returning. The music is inappropriate and way too loud for any restaurant and especially for a luncheon meeting. The explanation from the GM was that it was to create privacy so other tables couldn't hear our conversation. We could barely hear each other, and voices around us just elevated.
Showcase is beautifully set up for comfort and privacy, food and service is good. Too bad the ambience is ruined by this one thing. Keep telling the owners that.

Food was decent, but the table seating was right up against a wall which felt a bit awkward. Also the server did not explain any of the dishes and just dropped them off and left. We asked about the ingredients and he himself knew nothing about them and had to go look it up. Waiters were never in sight except for dropping off the dishes. Overall a bit disappointing. Also made a special request on open table but they did not address it at all.

Our waitress Danielle was outstanding.Some of our group were not happy with the quality of the food they had ordered.She was quick to suggest an alternative.
We also chose to change tables as we had been placed near a door and it was chilly..Donne pleasantly and efficiently.
Left my umbrella behind in the changeover but it was quickly found and returned.
The security person in the hall was also very pleasant?

The food on the Christmas Eve menu was AMAZING! The potato and leek soup was so rich and flavourful! The perfect comfort food. Was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service here. I’ve walked by many times and would not have thought to give this place a chance. I’m glad I did.

We went for Sunday brunch on Christmas Eve as part of a girls trip to Vancouver. The service was great and they had wonderful fresh food and drinks. The restaurant is near the water which made for a nice post brunch walk. Prices were reasonable and portions were just right. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I are staying at the Marriott Pinnacle for our honeymoon and this was so convenient for our first night in, so we decided to check it out. This space is so beautiful that I felt a little under dressed wearing a T-shirt, but that was acceptable attire. The service was great. Everyone we interacted with was so nice and our waitress was very attentive. The food though, was outstanding! We loved everything we ate and had zero complaints! The menu wasn’t extensive, but that wasn’t a problem for us. We’d definitely come back again!

A dreary, wet November evening, offset by a great meal. Caught the end of happy hour, with some good beer and appies. A good bottle of wine, rib eye steak, arctic char for dinner. Chocolate dessert with 20 yr tawny port to finish. Overall, a great dining experience.
