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.

Excellent service by all. Very attentive, but not overbearing.
The Menu selection was great from Starters, Appies, Mains to Deserts.
The halibut special was outstanding!
Will definitely return.

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!

My favourite restaurant in Vancouver due to the fresh seafood selection, view, service and ambience. Always a delightful fresh menu, a little pricey, but worth it! I always recommend Salmon House on the Hill!

This is a wonderful location, especially on a clear night with well spaced tables. The seafood is well prepared and accompanying sides all very tasty.

It is expensive but of excellent quality.

While this is the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful view of Vancouver, the service was less to be desired. We had the seafood tower which was alright, but nothing special. We were left with a full table of dirty dishes after having finished our meal for 15 minutes with no one checking on us. With our server was nowhere to be seen, we waved down another staff member to get our bill. To say the least, we were left unimpressed.

My grandniece from Dawson Creek and I enjoyed a delicious meal on a foggy, cloudy night. Because the food was delicious (I enjoyed the sablefish), the view took second place. We were treated to a clear view near the end of our meal and enjoyed the lights of Vancouver and Point Grey

One of the great things about the Salmon House, other than the food and service, is the view. Though it was a rainy day, the food and service made up for the lack of view. Our server was attentive, yet unobtrusive. The food was good, portions very adequate, cooked appropriately, and presented with flair. I wouldn't say it was outstanding, but certainly very tasty and we all enjoyed it. The room is classic west coast, with lots of cedar, and lots of Native cultural items. I'd go there again, and that is all a restaurateur needs to hear.

We shared the seafood tower. Great variety, tasty, nice presentation. Would have been nice if it came with some bread, but we ordered some. Oysters, crab legs, lobster were all on point. The one thing we noticed was that the salmon was on the dry side. Wonderfully muted ambience without being stuffy. Wait staff were all very friendly / pleasant.
It's been too long since we've been to the Salmon House, and hope to be back sooner.

Although the food and service was very good and excellent, respectively, the actual premises were freezing cold with the A/C still blowing after we mentioned it. Sitting eating dinner with our coats on.

Went for a birthday celebration. Restaurant was about 1/2 full and following COVID requirements. It was a rainy night but between showers we had a good view of downtown lights.
Had the seafood tower which is a lot of food. All very good but some of the white fish in the broth were a bit overcooked.

I was expecting a bit more seafood on their Seafood Tower for two. The portions were small, but I did not leave hungry. The caesar salad was superb.
The prices were over the top, but not unexpected.
The wine list was extensive, but starting at around $65 a bottle, was pricey. Maybe a few less expensive options should be thrown in??
The service was excellent, the atmosphere great.
All in all, a nice experience for my partner’s birthday.
