My birthday dinner with my wife, daughter and 93 year-old mother was fantastic, the food was superb, the service excellent and the tranquility with the beautiful view of Stanley Park, Burrard Inlet and Coal Harbor unforgettable. Salmon House on the Hill is by far my favorite restaurant in Vancouver.

Had a great time at the Salmon House - food was great, service was good, view was amazing. Ambiance was excellent - loved the live music and dancing in the bar after dinner. The only thing that distracted from a perfect night was a couple of children running through the restaurant all through dinner and desert - found this very distracting and it took away from the overall experience.

Great service and food. Valentine’s Day was great except the table beside us were too close the men spoke very loud and no stop it wasn’t making the evening very romantic. Not sure if staff could do anything about this

Once again the Salmon House provided excellent food with friendly and professional service. I notice an improvement in recent months which is an achievement for a fine restaurant which has a long tradition of excellence on the North Shore.

The portion was sampler size, no value. The seafood fettuccini had 2 small prawns, 2 clams, 2 small mussels, a few pieces of salmon, and a small bowl of pasta. The dessert was bland tasting and small. Not impressed. The service was good and wonderful view.

It was my parents 42nd anniversary and I brought a cake that I paid $50 for. After dinner we had dessert, and I noticed they haven’t brought out the cake I brought. After going to the waiter, he said they gave the cake to another table. He apologized but only refunded me $50 for the cake and made a make shift cake for my parents. I feel they should of taken off more on my bill as I spent over $400. The experience there this time around as a continuos loyal customer of the salmon house on the hill really hurt as I feel they could of done better. They gave me a 50% off if I buy another meal coupon which I felt was a slap in the face for the amount of money I’ve spent there in the past. Horrible experience for this fine dining restaurant.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating when our party of four (plus!) showed up with an infant that they did not expect. We were shown to our window side table and enjoyed the most gorgeous sunset and clear view of the city and Vancouver Isand in recent weeks. The Salmon House paticipated in "Dine Out Vancouver" which made it nice to order a full course meal and to have the flexibility to augment our choices from the menu however we wanted...which we did! The food was delicious and we were not rushed. We were surprised to receive a birthday candle for our son who was celebrating a birthday. By the time we left the city lights twinkled a lovely farewell to our party.

I had the dine out menu. The seafood chowder is a red broth instead of white which is a little unexpected. I would have preferred a white broth. The fish paste on the salmon entree was very salty and kind of not belong to the dish. Other than that, everything else were good.

I added the lobster tail to my dinner and it was cooked to perfection.

While the food tasted good and our out of town guests enjoyed the food, the plate was warmer than the food and our server was forgetful and made errors that took away from the overall experience. While I have eaten here prior and the experience was great, I will look at other options next time.

I was happy to bring out of the country guests with me.
I have been coming to Salmon House since the mid 70s.
Things are different, food is not what it used to be and the overall attitude is not
exciting me as it did many years ago.

Sadly, the quality of the food has gone down. For a restaurant that prides itself on its seafood, it was quite disappointing to find that the halibut had been overdone. Both my wife and I ordered a halibut dish and both our dishes were overdone. Disappointing - think we'll stick to other restaurants going forward. The only saving grace was our personal relationship with Checo, who provided the live entertainment for the evening and was the main reason that we went to the Salmon House.
