    2 servers. Waited an hour for our main course on a Monday. Most people had the coupon from social. Worst western dinner I've ever had. Perhaps the promotion worsten the restaurant as it can't handle it. Food portion was small and if the hotel isn't subsidize the restaurant then it will close down or continue to lose customers and money.

    We were using a Social Shopper voucher and we arrived at 5pm and were seated promptly. The bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar was delicious. we ordered the black tiger prawns and calamari both were great. we also ordered the 12 oz prime rib red but not juicy like prime rib should be also was rubbery. I like my meat and from a steakhouse i found this upsetting. My son ordered the chicken which was on the dry side and my daughter had the halibut on pasta that was good. Deserts were great chocolate explosion and the chocolate with cheesecake both great.

    Had the filet (nicely cooked and seared), cheese bread (superb!) and Beef Goulash (a bit salty, should've ordered seafood chowder instead). I previously tried the new york steak at this place, but it was awful, so the quality of the filet surprised me. Besides, the macaroon as dessert was superb as well. Though the service was mediocre, since there were only 2 waiters serving 10+ tables. Although services were a bit slow, the waiters were friendly and kind, so not much complaints. Would go there again.

    Went with my husband and teenage son. Service was outstanding but slow considering we were a family just out for dinner. Suitable for a romantic dinner or friends night out catching up on lost time. Our waiter was highly commendable ...very professional, knowledgeable and attentive. Gave us helpful advise on what to order. I would definitely go back for a special occasion.

    I came here for my birthday using a voucher. Ambiance was nice, menu was pretty standard for a steakhouse but the servers were all pleasant and extremely service-oriented. My starving boyfriend was offered bread, and then bread refills which he gladly took. We both had filet mignon (his was larger and cooked to requested temp, mine was a little under) still really juicy and delicious. Smaller wine selection but they had a nice little cocktail menu. Overall, I enjoyed my experience though I probably wouldn't come back given the location (remote Richmond) and how far I would have to drive from Vancouver. Our bill was reasonable with the voucher but would have leaned on the pricier side without.

    Food is very good. Steak is good. Add $8 for starter and dessert, it worth it. I think because of Father's Day, very busy and full house, services is not that great. They didn't ask for a drink at the beginning, and did not come to ask "How is the food?" I will give them a second chance /try but will be on some regular day, and see if the service will be better.

    I wanted to take my husband our for a steak dinner for his birthday as he loves steak, but I was looking for something different than the same old Keg experience. My parents, who live in Richmond, were joining us for dinner, so I decided to select a steakhouse out that way. After reading many favourable reviews on Carver's, I booked a reservation for 4 of us for a Saturday evening --- great choice! My husband, who along with my father ordered the rib eye, said it was the best steak he'd ever had.....beat what he's had at the Keg hands down. My mother was equally enthusiastic about her filet mignon, and I loved my seafood linguine --- and was even happier I had leftovers to take home with me! We'll definitely dine at Carver's again.

    This was a great place to celebrate my graduation as it was fairly quiet and sophisticated. The mood was very romantic and I very much enjoyed the candlelight at each table as it added to the overall atmosphere. I would give this place a 9/10 and is totally family friendly.

    The four of us went for the $38 dine out Vancouver menu. The service was awesome but my appetizer and dessert were not. I would not order bone marrow as an appetizer or the desserts that tasted like it was thawed a head of time. I enjoyed the steak but it would be on par with The Keg. Overall, good but not great.

    The ambience of the restaurant was nice for an anniversary, it was very sweet and romantic. However for being a fine dining restaurant the service was extremely slow and I would guess that they were understaffed for a Friday night. We asked for more bread about 5 times, not exaggerating! Also the food was mediocre. We also found it odd that the restaurant would not offer their original menu because none of the items on the dineout menu seemed good and we were willing to pay more for the regular menu.

    we were there for dine out Vancouver for their $38 menu, although they do offer a wide range of selections, the food are really not worth the money. the beef bites for appetizer tasted like pan fried beef from food court; bone marrow was small and tasteless; seafood chowder was average and could have more seafood in it. most of us ordered their steaks for main and you can easily get a better one from price smart or Superstore, the fries on the side were totally Macdonald fries while they said it's "shoe string fries" on the menu; halibut was fair; duck was not surprising. dessert tasted like cakes that you would get from a casino buffet...... overall, we (8 of us) were all disappointed by their food.....

    2nd dineout experience of the year 2014! Ordered the steak bites for appie. Was a bit too sweet for my taste but the meat was tender! Halibut was good but a tiny bit dry. LOVE THE QUINOA SALAD and best mashed potato I have tasted so far (stole a few bites from my sis in law). Dessert was not my thing but overall enjoyed my dining experience. Really liked our waitress. Made us felt really welcomed :)

    Reading reviews gave me the impression that this would be a great meal. The food was decent but nothing spectacular. The servers were nice but we waited for every course at least 20 minutes. It wasn't busy at all for the first 2 courses of our meal. I looked at the regular menu after and found that this restaurant gives a similar deal price for all entrees with appetizer and dessert. Given this info, I don't see what the incentive would be to come during Dine Out Vancouver. There are many more choices on the regular menu. I could've gotten a filet mignon rather than a overly salty teriyaki sauce NY steak for a few dollars more.
