Every bite was sensational. The food was creative, tasty, and adequate in amount. The server was upfront about our choices and recommended the restaurants specialties. We’ve know this hotel for forty years and appreciated that they kept the polar bear hanging. It has been the restaurants trademark for us since the 80s. The Reno’s are nice but less cozy than the old. Happy to go back. Prices were reasonable in spite of being in the centre of a Vancouver. Delightful cuisine!,,

We had a great waiter who helped us select an excellent rose wine (gave us a taste of several different wines) we shared a large salad and a main meal, both of which were split at the kitchen. Overall good food and good service. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion, since it is rather pricey.

I was there with my family for my birthday celebration . The overall service and food was good. However, I told the server at the start that I want my food VERY temp hot , not warm.
I ordered the lamb med rare and it was less than warm.
He took it back and the cook basically cooked it again. It came back as hot BUT the lamb was well done !
I was shocked that the YEW , which has a reputation of good food and service , would RE COOK the same two pieces of lamb and serve it back to the customer.
After again having to track down the server , he took my plate away again. this time I waited @ 20 min for my two pieces of lamb ribs and it was cooked nicely.
However, by that time, the other 5 people at my table were already finished their dinner etc. So I took my food home. I was no longer hungry . Disappointing indeed

ThanksGiving tradition.
This year our dinner was extremely over salted. Turkey was nice but the potatoes and veggies were like licking a salt pot.
The service was ok......even though we told our server 4 times that we had a pecan allergy he still brought the pecan dessert. And our bill was incorrect. Good thing we were paying attention.
A nice spot for happy hour but not sure we will go back for dinner.

Right from when we arrived till when we left it was an outstanding experience. The hostess was friendly and courteous and we were seated promptly after we arrived. The ambience was very romantic and intimate for our dinner date. Our server, David, was excellent! He made great suggestions from the wine to the dessert. The service was excellent and very prompt. The tuna tartare was exquisite, fresh and melted in your mouth. My sablefish entre was delicious and the dessert was to die for!! Highly recommend this restaurant to everyone for a wonderful dining experience and great food! Les K

$45 for 2 scallops, 2 prawns, a small piece of sable fish and a small dry piece of salmon? Definitely not sockeye.
$34 for 2 pieces of very dry salmon pieces with a scoop of sushi rice.

We ate at Yews multiple times: Dinner, and a couple of Breakfasts on the run. Food quality is very good. Food flavor and presentation is above average. I selected an entree with 4 seafood options. Three of them were excellent, but the salmon was rubber tough and tasteless. I menu that to the waiter who simply responded ‘sorry’. Since Yews is a Seafood restaurant I expected every seafood meal to be prepared near perfection. So even if my husband’s dish (lobster) was fabulous, my meal tanked on the salmon, hence, 4stars.

Yews service, for the most part, was attentive and professional. We had one very unfortunate experience while dining there, but to the managements’ credit they tried very hard to make up for the shortfall. It was clearly evident that this restaurant cares about their customers and is striving to earn their customer’s respect. We were quite moved and would recommend dining here whenever you have the opportunity.

Their version of Sablefish was good but not outstanding- I expected buttery but the taste was similar to salmon. The dessert I ordered had a lot of elements that clashed with one another, I would definitely not repeat.

Everything was done very well, nothing was excellent. Just a bit off the mark in everything except excellent ingredients. Preparations also good, but some hot things were room temperature by the time we got them, and pacing was very uneven. Server was good; I presume the pacing problem was the kitchen, not the server. Value fair for a high end hotel restaurant. Decor is excellent and interesting.

We chose this restaurant as it offered a separate vegan menu, which 2 out of 4 guests needed. While the seafood + meat lovers enjoyed their meals quite well, we (vegans) were disappointed at the options and value of the vegan meals received. I chose the vegetable skewers on a tomato salad. Poor value as I received 3 small skewers of veggies on tomatoes (and olives which I dislike and they were not mentioned on the menu). Not a satisfying meal at all. Very little flavour.
Because YEW is offering a separate vegan menu, I would highly recommend offering bowls (or similar) that cover all food groups so you are offering a meal that will satiate your guests (ex. a choice of grain (a healthy choice, ex. brown rice), legumes (beans or chick peas, etc...) and an assortment of leafy, cruciferous and root vegetables made with some flavour and taste.
After our meal, the waitress gave us 4 regular dessert menus instead of remembering 2 of our were vegan. Lack of attention to detail was noted. Does not make us feel like valued guests. None of us ordered desserts.

Warning: the lobster Ceasar salad has actually whole anchovies in it, even though it’s not mentioned on the menu. I’m not an anchovy person and sent it back - it was hidden underneath the lobster and I just lost my appetite. If you’re including something as polarizing as anchovies, I think it would be included on the menu. Never going back.

This restaurant has decent food for the value. The ambiance was pleasant. Our waiter was wonderful. However, when we checked jn to our Open Table reservation, we were intitially seated in the lounge despite that there was more than ample space in the dining room. I found is very rude that given we had a dining “reservation” we would be placed at a high top table in the lounge, where we clearly could have walked in off the street and sat ourselves with no reservation. Pretty unexpectedly. When we inquired about availability for a table in the dining room we were begrudgingly moved. Not sure what that was all about but the rest of our of dining experience was pleasant.
