What a great restaurant tucked away off the highway. My date and I enjoyed the Dine Out menu and would love to come back again for a nice evening. Best value for this year's Dine Out

We're glad this place is not TOO well known otherwise we think the prices would be higher and it would be hard to get a table

We spent New Years Eve there with a bigger group and we were pleasantly surprised - the restaurant was animated, a DJ arrived at 11.30 and there was a bit of dancing until about 1am. The food and service are excellent , the noise level is decent - so we could speak without screaming but it was not awkwardly quiet either . We had fun and really enjoyed the evening. The one thing I wish it was possible - to have the possibility ton order A la carte - as for me - it was too much food and half of my main course went to waste - and it was absolutely delicious but I could not eat it . Other than that - gorgeous view and absolutely lovely staff

We chose to dine on New Years' eve. There was a set event menu which was very good and had an excellent selection for each course. Our waitress was excellent - and had no problems accommodating my allergies and preferences despite the set menu. Simply put, the food was AMAZING... and this was one of our best dining experiences in Vancouver in 2019. The complementary Champagne near midnight was a nice touch, however, sadly we had to leave before then. We will definitely be back for all special occasions in 2020.

New Years dinner. Amazing experience. The spectacular views of Vancouver. The food was 5 star and we really enjoyed the Christmas Jazz selection of music. Looking forward to going back. We enjoyed fine dining and conversation without having to raise your voices to hear each other.

Main dish was satisfactory, but appetizers and desert very average, not for fine dining and definitely not worth the price.
Smoked salmon salad was prepared probably night before, lettuce under salmon totally dry like grass. Dressing on the top in small amount and very average.. cheesecake in Phillo pastry so dry, that was sticking to your gums and teeth, so little of cheesecake that I felt like eating phillo pastry by itself. Overall very overpriced and disappointing experience. Definitely not fine dining. won’t be back for another New Years dining for sure and would not recommend it

The food was amazing! The service was excellent! The pacing between courses was perfect! The ambience is wonderful. We were there on New Years Eve. The amount of time between seatings was very generous.......... we never felt rushed. An outstanding experience!!!!

As always the ambience and service was very good. Five of us had lunch on Sunday and the food was not up to expectations for some. Two of us had the seafood pasta and found it rather dry and short on the seafood.

We haven't been to the Salmon House for a few years and I'm glad to report it is still excellent. We were a party of 7 and everyone enjoyed their meals. Salmon was excellent as you'd expect; my only comment is that in my 3-salmon medley the taste of the wood grilling was a little strong for me; it would have been nice to have one of them done without that flavour. Service was excellent and we loved our evening.

We enjoyed our meals very much. The staff were very accommodating. We had called to change our reservation time with no issues and then when we arrived we had a sick 4 year old and they happily moved us from a table to a booth so he could sleep. Was much appreciated.

This family Christmas gathering was made special by the exceptional service, excellent seafood bennies, sunshine and blue sky! It is THE place where our family meets 'half way' for special events. We like the brunch time as it is not too noisy so we can chat and enjoy one another and the food! We are never disappointed.

Great food. Great service. Not more expensive than Milestones or similar restaurants and yet feels more special with view and linen tablecloths. French toast is absolutely amazing.

The Salmon House never disappoints - I have been going there since it opened and over the years it has just got better. It's a great place to take visitors as well, as the view is absolutely the best.

We thought the server was not attentive and the prices were underwhelming for the food level. Wine was also on the spendy side.

We have dined here for years and keep coming back hoping it gets better. But it seems to be heading in the wrong direction. Sad for our local market

Lovely place to bring visitors to Vancouver. The view can not be beat. Food was very good although we were surprised that there was only one salmon entree on the brunch menu. Service was friendly but a little bit slow.

Very nice atmosphere and intimate. Food quality and presentation is very good and flavors are all well balanced. The trio sorbet dessert was excellent, flavors can be individually detected and each fruit flavor complemented each other. Main courses again were full of richness and great flavor.

We have been many times for special occations. It has a beautiful view, lately we go for brunch. I am lately finding it overpriced, and the dining room furniture is aging. Most of the cushions I could see at tables around me had stains, or lightened fabric from years of wear. Maybe not a big deal, but with so much bright light nd high prices I find it weird they haven't replaced. All areas are clean, servers polite. I had the meat hash brunch item and it was surprisingly bland, I very rarely add salt but resorted to. Our bread basket was good, $4.00.
