Food was great AND you are paying for the view. Some more vegetarian options would be welcome in this day and age.
Our server, Diane, was excellent! It’s a great place for a special occasion.

The view is spectacular; the food great; the dining hall is very spacious; the service is kind and efficient;

there are several seating arrangements available; and every month there is a special three-course dinner for early arrivals (weekdays only) at a very convenient price.

Salmon House was great for a group birthday - great view of Downtown/StanleyPark, great sustainably-sourced fresh wild seafood (I highly reccommend the Salmon Trio), great service (we had probably one of the most friendly, upbeat and helpful waitresses I've ever had (management: please give Colleen a bonus).

10/10 would birthday-with-the-family here again.

We have lived in another city for a number of years and recently moved back to West Vancouver and wanted to see if the Salmon House on the hill was still as good as we remembered it to be!
We were not disappointed the crowd was varied but vibrant, The menu had a selection for everyone at the table, the food was exquisite with the fish cooked to perfection flaky and moist, and dinner was promptly served by a charming and gracious waitress. The view from our central window table was stunning with a particularly beautiful and colourful sunset!
We will go back again very soon!

We had a wonderful afternoon brunch celebrating two birthdays. Our meals were perfect and very delicious. We had two seafood omelets and two halibut fish and chips. The portions were perfect. The view is spectacular and our service was excellent. The restaurant has it's own ample parking with handicap spaces as well so you never have to look for a place to park.

Fantastic service. Amazing view. Wonderful ambience. We dined at 5 PM and a great view. The service was wonderful. They definitely know how to cook fish. I found the sides a bit bland and uninspired but they might be catering to the clientele. This is an iconic restaurant that is a great place to bring your out of town guests or family.

The quality of food is not up to the high standards it used to be. We had 1 of each Seafood Tower for 2. There was not a noteworthy item among them all. The stuffed calamari was chewy and fish. Salmon is their namesake but it was not that flavorful. The view, the ambience, the live music, and our server made the night. Overall, priced too high for the quality of food but we still had a nice night.

I always expect the food to come second to the view, art, and reputation but every time I go I am reminded that the food is the top priority. A must-go for visitors to BC. Local, elegant, and just so Vancouver (well, West Vancouver). Simply sublime.

First time in 40 years that I have been there, my loss. It was a great experience, the food is delicious, the service is fantastic, a great spot for seafood. It is easy to get to from Vancouver before or after rush hour, well worth the 20 minute drive. To busy enjoying the company and the food, didn't take any pictures, there are lots online though.

Nice atmosphere. And while I didn't care for our server (very fake/awkward approach to fine dining service) the team seemed great overall. Very disappointed that they charge $3.50 for buns that should be free, and appetizers are terribly priced and single servings as well. Seafood towers are not a great value; stick with entrees.

It took 2 hours before we were served our main course. We were told that the kitchen had been short a cook for two months. The feel if this restaurant is that it is over the hill. It was once good but now is tired and old. For fine dining go elsewhere.
