Had a wonderful dinner. Service was attentive. Lots of space between tables which made is feel secure in the time of Covid. The only quibble - the bread (soda bread maybe?) wasn't very flavorful. The focaccia was better.
Prices are moderate to high but the food is of a very high quality, especially if you love seafood.

Had reserved a table for a birthday celebration, got put in a corner beside a fire exit in the lounge area and not even in the dinning room was told it was the best table for our reservation. They also DO NOT do anything complimentary for special occasions regarding dessert like other restaurants in the same price range. Host wasn't helpful overall, waiter was decent other than doing his required duties was not very warm or charming. Food was decent 6/10 for the premium prices. Overall an iconic place to come for the view. Would not reserve again.

No complaints on the food or service. Excellent. Just the decor is getting dated. Like the tables and overall dark decor. Perhaps light table cloths?

We sat in the lounge smaller area so very quiet. Tables spread nicely apart so felt very comfortable and safe.
Food and service was spot on! Great night

The tips were set and default to 18% which doesn't make a lot of sense to us as the gratitude should have been based on the actual service. That just tells me that we could get 0 service and still have to pay 18% of our bill. That being said, the service was just a okay. I am not sure if I would have tipped 18% for the service we received, but it's not like I had a choice. The restaurant is beautiful and the view is awesome! Loved our table right beside the windows where we could look over the water and the city. The lobster was a must order! Great food!!

Thought the food was a bit mediocre for the price. Add on lobster tail for $21 was very tiny: two bites. Beautiful view and relaxing environment.

Excellent service and decor. Food was above excellent however prices; especially for the wine was over the top. 200 + markup on wine is pushing it a bit!

Holiday meal celebration with a colleague with fantastic food, great service all in a west coast setting. The Salmon House is my ‘go to’ place to bring guests. I’ve always had great dining experiences at the Salmon House and this was no exception.

We were seated at a booth, which we had requested. The service was very good overall. The sablefish was delicious, as was the Black forest dome dessert. The waiter had added a 'Happy birthday' note and a candle for my sister's birthday - unexpected, and a treat.

Great service upon arrival & throughout meal. Awesome view of city lights & relaxing atmosphere. Quality of food never disappoints. Daughter & boyfriend’s 1st time enjoying Salmon House On The Hill after moving to Vancouver & the staff & food made a lasting impression on them. A special place that I always enjoy sharing with friends & family whenever I am in Vancouver.

It's been quite awhile since we have been to Salmon House. It's been a favorite for years. I had thought it was closed permanently but it was temporary due to covid and staffing. When I looked for a reservation to any open places last minute Salmon House came up. It was lovely, absolutely great food and service from a 24 year veteran server who made our evening with class. Food first class and we will happily return!

The halibut and sablefish were absolutely perfect. A taste sensation. Our server,bea, was so helpful and her suggestions were right on. It was a full restaurant but we had not problem chatting with one another. In fact it was not even thought of. It was the question here that made us rethink and we couldn't remember noise being an issue. A great ambiance and beautiful view.

Upon arriving at Salmon House on the hill, we were greeted by a friendly Hostess
and seated accordingly, albeit early. Our Server was wonderful towards us and our
later arriving friends and continued to serve us with a very friendly and kind manner.
We all enjoyed our appetizer along with our main entree with good company set in
an ambient setting which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

Had a date night with my girlfriend. We were going to check the 2021 Canyon Lights at the Capilano Suspension Bridge, and decided we would go back to one of our favorite restaurants.

The service was FIRST-CLASS from the moment we walked ... we had our coat check in ... then we were taken to a table by the windows and in a quiet romantic section of the restaurant as I had requested on my reservation.

The service and food quality throughout the evening was nothing less than first-class.

Food was cold. Salmon was smelly. Left 80% of the food on the plate and left. How could a restaurant on the Pacific Coast not find fresh salmon? Salmon House? I don’t think so, will never go back again.

Best meal since the pandemic started! My spouse had the crab and I had fresh Chinook salmon. Both were yummy. The only downside was the price - a $20 bottle of wine was charged at $65! Over treble the liquor store price. The meal for 2 of us with no starters or desert was over $250. Bring money!
