A word from C Restaurant
C serves nourishing food, renders crisp service and offers a spectacular location on False Creek, right between the superstructures of two iconic bridges. Chefs Robert Clark and Lee Humphries create sophisticated meals built with ingredients that are fished, farmed and foraged close to home. C has an unshakeable commitment to sustainability and oceans advocacy, and a direct relationship with the fishermen who catch the fish. This is ethical luxury. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I think this restaurant has seen better days. No greeting when we arrived, bartender was inexperienced and had to keep referring to the drinks recipe on signature drinks, food was just average. One bright spot, our waiter we had was great."

  • "Benedict was fabulous, beautifully plated, feast for the eyes. Petit four dessert was the same, more than enough for 3 ladies to share. Best service I have had in a long time. Great view, felt like I was far away from big city. Would love to return in summer to sit outside."

  • "I had the duck. It was amazing -- well seasoned and cooked to the right temperature. The others had the crab salad and said it was good. At the suggestion of server had tempura sweet potato and asparagus -- both excellent and tasty. The wild salmon was said to be superb. We will definitely be back."

  • "We recently enjoyed a relaxing night out at "C" Restaurant in Vancouver, fantastic food and choice on the menu, plus very knowledgeable staff made the night one to remember."

  • "Best Lobster Bisque ever! Everyone around us was taking selfies. Even the guys were doing it. I know I am old because I took none."

  • "Dined here many times over the years, but no more. Had a bad meal a yr ago but gave it one more chance. First 2 ordered wines were n/a and the salad arrived before our wine. Caesar salad was terrible. Lettuce not fresh, dressing flavourless. My wife's entree was very good. My piece(s) of sable fish couldn't have totaled 4 oz (but were done perfectly). One of the ingredients of the dish was smoked octopus. The size was literally less than half of my little fingernail. To be fair we didn't complain - but I've seen and read too many stories of what happens in the kitchen when you do. To sum up, the server was eager, friendly and enthusiastic. Ambiance decent. But when you're paying $100+ per person, you really expect much much more."

  • "This was our first visit to a restaurant that apparently used to have a good reputation. Upon entering, we received a friendly greeting, but with no offer to take our coats. The main floor of the restaurant has beautiful views of the harbour, but we were taken to a small room with no windows or zero ambiance. Although they had some very nice wine bottles on display (Foxtrot Pinot) , they were nowhere to be found on the wine list, which was pedestrian at best. Food was okay, but for the $95.00 it cost for the set menu it was a very poor investment. I can't say we will ever go back. Which is too bad because we are only 2 blocks from the restaurant"

  • "regular menu with double price on valentine's day,everything was just ok,nothing surprise,greasy cheesy food! totally not worth the money!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had the four course meal on valentine day. Service was super super slow. Soup was cold. My soup was half full. The table next to us got a lot of attention from the server. The server didn't check up with us once that evening. Do not recommend if your going on a special day. The kitchen and the staff can not handle busy night."

  • "Food was good quality but overpriced and a little generic."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "There was nothing terrible about our visit, but nothing spectacular either. And for nearly $300 for one couple, that's unforgivable. The set menu was a bit of a surprise, though it was probably advertised if I'd been paying more attention. More surprising was the almost complete lack of seafood among the choices. Tables were separated into two-person tables, making the restaurant jam-packed, and likely resulting in there not being enough servers to go around (though how could they not have predicted this?). It was our first visit to C, and while I will give them the benefit of the doubt that this was probably not indicative of a regular night there, it may also be our last."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It was Valentine's Day, but nowhere on Opentable or the restaurant's website was indicated that there is only one menu option a 4-course for Chef's Menu. Would I have known I would have not booked there. I indicated I have a wheat allergy and the waiter made some recommendations, but didn't indicate if those menu items were safe or not. Dessert was not safe, as it had cake pops and it was to share, and he kind of chose for us, saying he knows best. Service was fairly slow, the waiter did not check in to see if we need anything else... Food was good, and the third course-the entree was a really good size. Might return for brunch in the summer."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went for Valentine's dinner, the 4 course menu was fantastic, as are the location and ambiance. Of course we expected to dish out a significant sum at an upscale restaurant on Valentine's day, and, as such, we expected much better service. We were served by around 4 or 5 different people throughout the night, all of whom were either disorganized or rude (or both). We ordered drinks before ordering food, but we didn't get them until after we were finished eating our first course. They forgot to give us soup spoons when they delivered our soup, and our dessert came without everything on the plate (those are just the highlights! There was more). Perhaps less busy days will provide a better experience, so I would tentatively recommend still."

  • "My husband and I went to C Restaurant for the first time and thought it would be good to give it a try during the Dine-out Vancouver. The atmosphere was great & the restaurant was full. The food looked very appetizing. Our waiter was excellent! After we ordered our choices, our appetizers came in very good time. And then we waited and waited for our entree until one hour later and we finally got it. My husband got the beef entree and I got the fish. The appetizers were amazing, so we were naturally looking forward to our main dish. However that was all quite disappointing. Although it was good, I must say that it wasn't worth the wait of 1 hour. Don't think we will go back to this place!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Tim, our server was impeccable! The food was amazing, beautifully presented. Being on the water was especially pleasing. We cannot wait to go back when the weather is warmer and we can walk around after supper. It was a wonderful way to spend my 50th!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "the sauce in every dish is wonderful....the flavor is good. especially my husband like the lamb cheese. he said when he tasted it he can feel the thousands sheep around him."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "The last time we ate here (many years ago) we had a fantastic meal in a refined setting. This time we came for a celebration and left disappointed Some dishes were good others just mediocre and in fact one dish arrived missing a main component listed on the menu. But really, what ruined our evening the most was the fact that we were surrounded by diners totally engrossed in their cellphones and iPads. Not the kind of atmosphere expected at an upscale restaurant. Much as we love seafood, we will not be returning to C."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "We made a reservation and were excited about trying the restaurant as it came highly recommended. Upon arrival the restaurant was packed, people were blocking the door ways. It was chaos, no one was available to greet you, and when we finally got through to the front we were advised the wait would be 30-45min even with our reso. The staff was rude and did not seem to care. Disappointed we left and dined elsewhere."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We decided to try C Restaurant for our anniversary this year and came away very underwhelmed and disappointed with the experience. Despite making a reservation we we told (rather bluntly) that there would be a wait. We stood for almost an hour in the entrance as there was nowhere to sit and no room at the bar. We were just about to give up and leave when we were eventually shown to our table. The table service was fine but the food very average for the price. The servings were small, cold and certainly nothing special. The oysters we ordered were the smallest I have ever laid eyes upon. The general atmosphere, decor and ambience was also very bland. All in all, a very disappointing dining experience."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I tried out C Restaurant for the first time during Dine Out Vancouver. We ordered the scallops with edamame and octopus. It was divine, the scallops were seared perfectly. Our entrée was also delicious, and the flavours were rich but well-balanced. I recommend the chocolate mousse for dessert, as it was the best I have ever tasted. Our favourite dish was an add-on to the dine out menu, and was a mushroom risotto with truffle oil, and we would definitely return for that dish alone! Not sure about the main menu, but prices are quite high, so prepare to spend a decent amount of money for a quality seafood experience."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "The wait was an hour long even with a reservation. The food and service once we were seated was exceptional."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Food was quite good but would not go back. After the group eating next to us left, the busser put new silverware directly on the seat where a previous patron had been sitting 5 minutes previously. Gross. Also, waited over 30 minutes for our table when we arrived on time (maybe 1 minute late). I had the impression that the 3 hostesses had gotten reservations confused, as we were almost immediately seated after my checking a second time about the delay."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Long story short, made a reservation for 8:15p.m. and arrived at the restaurant at 8:06 p.m. Saw there was a huge crowd at hostess table, was told everyone there had a reservation. Did not get seated until 9:15 p.m. Example of poor organization already, why overbook yourself so much that someone would have to wait an hour even if a reservation was made. Took another 10 minutes before our waitress came, she was apologetic and pleasant to deal with. Ordered our food and the appetizers came quick, in fact, so quick that our bread hasn't even come yet. Waited for another 15 minutes before we got the attention of our waitress, and they screwed that up too so we had to ask again, . Rest of the night went fine but would not go back again."

  • "I thought the salmon was slightly overcooked. The food is ok, but not standout [particularly given the price]. Our server was very attentive, and the hostess was accommodating."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I went to C for Dine Out Vancouver. I have been to C as a regular customer so I anticipated it would be much like the good experience I have had before. I came in to a giant crowd of people waiting at the tiny entrance. The hostess took my name and told me it would be 30-45min to be seated- with my reservation. There is no excuse for this, especially since we were not seated until an hour after our reservation! They should have figured out the tables by the second-to-last day of Dine Out. My appy was lukewarm to cold. Everything else was quite delicious. Wish they would give you a bit more portion-wise. I won't be recommending since there are many great restaurants in Vancouver that treat you well, Dine Out customer or regular customer."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "highly anticipated to try the food at C restaurant because heard good things about it a couple of years ago. however, food was disappointing. tried the lobster bisque which wasn't very heavy in lobster flavor, my salmon was dry and dessert was mediocre. after expressing my disappointment in the food to a friend then was told that chef was changed a few times in the past few years... Food was not worth the price we paid... sigh...."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We had an excellent meal with excellent service. The only off putting thing was the bill showing up with dessert. We suddenly felt rushed even though we'd only been there an hour."

  • "Staff were great and serving a full house quickly and efficiently with smiles on their faces. Dine Out Van makes for a busy Friday night but everyone seemed relaxed and enjoying it all. Food was excellent!"
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We came out for dine out event. Restaurant was busy and had to wait for 20 for my table even though reservation was made 2 weeks ahead but they did apologize and offered drinks on the house. We had the salmon and sable fish, both were very tender and delicious, dessert was very good. Will come back again."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Tried this restaurant out during dine out Vancouver so not sure if its always like this but our food was not good at all. We had high expectations going in based on past accolades and reviews but were very disappointed. My husbands meal was ok but from the get go mine was off to a rough start. The soup came out cold and was fairly oily and not that creamy texture I expect from a bisque. My salmon entree that also came out cold, was way overcooked and vastly under seasoned. I thought dessert might be ok but the huge amount of basil sorbet they had paired with the panna cotta just completely overpowered the plate and ruined the dessert. To top it off they may have filled our water glasses once. Would not go back."

  • "Fantastic food - the freshest of seafood but enough non fish dishes that there is something for everyone on the menu - and excellent service in a relaxed west coast setting."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Portions looked very small with the really large plates they used but the food and service made up for that. Food, sauces, plating and attention from the waiter was excellent. I would have liked to have more seafood on the menu but really enjoyed what I chose. Overall, great evening, great service and food, and really nice view of the water .."

  • "Wait time for a table is a bit long but the food is pretty good and impressive. The table were too crowded and the place is a bit too noisy."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Not only the Food is Great and the Wine List impressive, but we were lucky twice in a row to have Philippe as our waiter: His service is impeccable, always has the best advice for your wine choice, and finds new ways to make you enjoy your evening. Can't wait to go back."

  • "we recently decided to enjoy Vancouver's Dine Out 2014 and booked a table a C restaurant January 27th. Our reservation was for 7pm, we expected to have a relaxing enjoyable night given it was Monday and less busy. The dine out offer was $38 per person, plus drinks, plus add-ons, plus, plus... The food was less than desirable and very small portions. After waiting almost 45min for the main course to arrive, my salmon was over cooked and tasted like chewing on cardboard. The waiter was happy that I brought this to his attention and promised to fix this and be right back.....another 15min later my meal finally arrived......still not the greatest, would have tasted better on my BBQ! 2.5hrs to eat, fed meter twice, no discount, disappointed!!"

  • "We were seated in a room upstairs with loud music and no view. But I remember the view was pretty good when we sat downstairs before. Service standard was worse than expected. We had 7 in our group and were served a basket of 6 pieces of board. We asked for more and was given another 5 pieces! We have waited at least 10-15 mins for the entree after we finished appetizer. & when we split the bill, the server has to go back and forth 3 times to get it right. He also told us that we should have informed him ahead of time if we were to split the bill. Food taste is good overall, but quantity is not. I've order the AAA striploin steak and was serves 2 thin slices that weight no more than 4 oz."

  • "We asked in advance for two high-chairs and we received only one. Our toddler ended up sitting on our laps. We were constantly nagged about the max. 75-min. seating time, even though we told them that we were ready to order and food could be brought to us even if one of the guests wasn't present as she needed to mind a sleeping toddler in the car. I asked if we could have a birthday candle placed on one of the guests' dessert plate and they said no problem. The candle never showed up and his dessert came about 5min. after everyone else had theirs. We ordered extra food and coffee to go with dessert, to make up for the extra seating time. Reality is we only sat an extra 15min. and came away with a dissatisfied $200+ dining experience."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "Book them at 8pm but have my seat for 2 at 9:30. I didn't even have bread for starting. The atmosphere there is not that amazing yet, I was seated at a room with little lighting, I couldn't even see my what am I eating."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The dine out menu was quite good. Nice mix of flavours and beautiful presentation. We did not have to wait but was seated at the exact time of my reservations. Despite being busy the service was excellent. When a blackberry rolled off one of the deserts, the waiter brought us a small bowl of berries to compensate. Unlike other diners, my group of 4 thought the portions adequate."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Very disappointed! Started with a reminder call where I was fairly rudely informed that I would be held to 1.5 hours. Fair enough - tone was a little off but whatever. Arrived at 7PM on the dot and was again fairly abruptly informed that it would be at least half an hour before they would seat me. We were essentially left to our own devices. No one paid any attention to us to. They could have started us on a drink. Finally ushered to a table. Waiter was impatient and brought the wrong drinks. Whatever! Meal portions very small (nouvelle cuisine?) and the beef was awfully tough in parts. For $38 a menu I felt that "C" is a little high on themselves considering the other restaurants we have visited. Will certainly NEVER be back."
