    The Marriott Chefs prepare the food to a consistent hogh standard. We enjoyed the perfectly cooked Sable Fish and their Rack of Lamb is incomparable. Their chocolate dessert was rich and yummy; i wouldnt bother with the Grand Marnier dessert which was bland. We found the wine list limited, but is probably adequate for most diners. A favourite Richmond restaurant, the Grille never disappoints.

    I took an out-of-town guest and my daughter for an early meal. (5.30pm) I had reserved a table with a request for a window table and was seated exactly as I asked Parking was refunded on our bill: we were told we didnt have to pay but just give the car licence # to the server. Good food, (rack of lamb, halibut)| served and presented very nicely. Good service & reasonable prices. Good value for money. We eat here every few months and always enjoy the experience. The room was not crowed but comfortable and lots of space between tables so conversation is private.

    We dined early with friends as we were going to the theatre in Vancouver. American Grille always pleases us, a nice blend of informality with very good food and our server, Remi, added to our evening's enjoyment. Two of us had 2 appetizers each, including crab cakes, scallops and New England clam chowder, just the right amount pre-theatre. My wife enjoyed the chicken caesar salad, and our other diner opted for one of their delicious hambugers. Service was efficient but not hurried, and we left for the theatre in good spirits. Highly recommend!

    This restaurant is good for casual fine dining. It is easily accessible for handicapped since there are no stairs. The food and service is excellent. This time, I needed to have a location for a dinner meeting and it really was a good venue for that as well. It is not too loud to carry a conversation, lots of natural light, with good food and service. I had the blackened halibut, while the others had steaks; everybody pleased with taste and presentation.

    My grandma & mom were craving fish and chips for mothers day, without the news paper cone and stand/eat atmosphere! So, we decided to try American Grille! The fish was perfectly battered (not too much) and fried to a crisp! Delicious fries and coleslaw came with of course! We tried both the Sole and the Halibut! Both were flaky and tender! yum! We also had a burger which was delicious! For dessert we were all very happy with our choices! The Creme Brulee had a nice and crisp sugar crust on it, the apple pie was flaky and the perfect ratio of filling to flaky pastry, and the gluten free/flour less chocolate cake was to die for! I would definitely return for a casual but tasty lunch/dinner! Our server was very knowledgeable and accommodating

He was able to explain clearly to me and my daughters when we asked about the food we were about to order. The prices was reasonable, be not too expensive. The portion of food was just right, not too small or too big.

    Returned to the American Grille for a special evening; treated to impeccable service by Remi (professional waiter). What does this mean?...he serves us hot food hot, ensures wine glasses are full, makes intelligent suggestions, times the meal in total sync with our pace of eating. Did I mention he is also polite, charming, and witty? The team in the kitchen support the service experience. Expert chefs prepare tasty appetizers and creative entries presented with artistry. The rack of lamb is perfectly cooked--delicious. The Smoked Sablefish....a burst of flavour, with a medley of roasted veggies. Their original version of a creme brûlée--yum. Discover this gem. No hesitation to recommend this establishment for any occasion.

    I came here 2 times this week for each lunch and dinner. The appetizers and desserts are wonderful but the entrees always come out a bit short in flavor, especially the sauces for the pastas and spaghetti. For dine out, all the appetizers were fresh, creative and delicious, loved the tuna. The porkchop I had for the entree however was underdone and the vegetarian macaroni my sister had, had an odd sauce that didn't quite fit the ingredients. For experience, the lunch time staff were very friendly and cheerful but the dinner staff were a bit lacking. The host didn't smile nor bother to talk to us, our server was great in the beginning but entirely disappeared as the night went. I'm sure I'll be going back for lunch but not sure of dinner.

Highly recommend for anybody looking for a great meal at a great price.

    My family and I come here on a regular basis. We love the food here, and with the entertainment book promotion, the value is quite good. The food is always consistently good, although the service can be slow and lacking sometimes. Parking can also be tricky. There is paid parking in front of the hotel and the restaurant will credit the amount when paying for the bill. Overall, we really like American Grille. Their pastas, meat and seafood dishes are delicious. We will definitely be back!

    We didn't think this place deserves such a high rating on tripadvisor. The service was good until dessert when our server pretty much disappeared and we waited forever to see her and ask for the bill. The food was mediocre. The several halibut entrees were dry and flavourless and they had two to choose from. i asked for the blackened halibut with tagliatelle but ended up getting what my friends got which was the halibut with potatoes. I didn't want to send it back and have to wait for the correct entree so i just ate it. Won't be back any time soon.

    I was out on business in Vancouver and Victoria and we ate at a number of what were supposed to be very good restaurants. We did have some good to ok experiences but the American Grille was far and away our best meal of the week. We each had the Halibut which was cooked perfectly and went very well with our bottle of wine.

    I only came here because it was listed as an OpenTable restaurant in a neighbourhood that I was going to be visiting. The waitress was pleasant enough, but she did not know what the daily soup/sandwich special was and she didn't pack my leftover sandwich for me when I was done (I was simply given a styrofoam container to do it myself). The food was mediocre and reminiscent of a school cafeteria or hospital. I will not be coming back.

    Dined on 8/22/2013
    The host is rather rude and bad in communication. Didn't even look at you in the eyes when he talked. Had a reservation but still waited for 30 min for our table and when asked when it would be ready the host simply told us off while I can clearly see there were at least 3 empty tables. What's the point of making a reservation when you still have to wait especially when we had to catch a flight right after? If I didn't have an important guest with me, I'd tell him straight to the face how bad his attitude was!!! However the food was great and the service performed by our waiter was superb! Our waiter was very attentive and made me feel much better afterwards.
