Center Ice Grill - Rogers Arena reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Fast service and Nice Prime Rib
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 4/10/2014
    My wife and I had the prime rib. Not only was it delicious, but it arrived quickly and we were able to lots of time to explore Rogers arena and find our seats etc. The service was great and we had an overall good experience.

    The Centre Ice Grill is a good fit for a lunch before the game.. it isn't often that there is enough time to sit down to a dinner.. as mostly it is just a rush to get to the game.. but on special occasions... it fits well... nice to eat and walk downstairs to watch.. after you are parked...and through with the traffic and so on.

    The restaurant was so cold that between the kitchen and the table our dishes were warm at best. By the last bite the food was ice cold. I would have given outstanding otherwise.

  • Great complement to game but pricy

    Dined on 3/23/2014
    Great way to make the game an event in itself with adding on a dinner at the resto before and the location is awesome, no need to walk somewhere else after dinner, and even if you cannot see the ice, you can feel the vibe of the game and watch the game on the screen (as we missed a portion of the 1st period and watched it on the TVs. A little pricy so we could not always add that to the price of the ticket.

    Dined on 3/10/2014
    Definitely not what I expected. We were seated in a small section that was surrounded by glass which made it very noisy. Could not see any part of the rink or the stands, just the bar and tv's. You would not know you were inside Rogers Arena. Food was below average at best but very pricey. 2 Entry and a small appetizers came close to $80 (before tips). And that's without any drinks or alcohol, we had water. Would not go back.

    Great place to start a game, good food and excellent service. Arriving at 5 pm, gave us ample time to enjoy the drinks, meal and pregame conversation. The staff were attentive to our needs, anticipating there was a time limit. Will definitely go again, business or with someone special.

    We have eaten at your restaurant before and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I would have to say though, this time our service was a little lacking. Waiter was not friendly and we hardly ever saw him. I hate having to track someone down to pay the bill. We have had good service in the past so will have no problem coming back. Hopefully it won't happen again.

    I don't often have a chance to attend a live Canucks game so when we do we want it to be a special occasion. Having unsuccessfully tried to get a table last time, I knew that we needed a reservation. The waiter was very professional and attentive. We were particularly impressed that, rather just giving us an extra spoon, they split our seafood chowder appetizer into 2 separate bowls. The chowder was delicious by the way. My wife had the salmon and I the special of the day, a pork dish. Both were excellent. Well presented and very tasteful. We would certainly dine here at our next game.

    We brought my 78 year old mother to her first Canuck's game and thought it would be a special treat to dine in this restaurant. It was lovely, the food good, the service good although I felt a bit rushed to order. Another thing that took me aback a little was when we arrived I asked if we could sit overlooking the ice (for my mom's sake) and was told that those seats were reserved for season ticket holders and we would have to vacate them in 1 hour. That clearly wouldn't have been enough time to relax, eat, relax before the game. However, all in all, I would do it again. thank you.

    Always feel rushed as the servers have to move you to a different table to accomodate season ticket holders. Also this is extremely cold and so it is hard to feel comfortable while you eat - it is colder than the actual game seats!

    Reservation was easy, made it that day, (15:30 for a 17:00 game start) 4 adults, 2 out of town guests, access to the 400 level was easy. Prime rib end cut very good, Seafood chowder tasty, and Potato wraped halibut moist and very tasty without the heavyness of a batter. Good Okanagan wine list. Nice ambience, people excited for the NFL on the tv and the upcoming game. Able to see and hear when the warm up started. Peter our waiter was very good.

    This was my first NHL game and the experience was truly outstanding. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. If I had to make a critique it would be that the food is a bit expensive for the portions you receive but the quality was excellent. The staff were professional and classy and made our experience all that more wonderful.

    I take clients to the hockey game and we generally always have dinner here before hand. I have found that over the past 6 years dinner is always great, wonderfully prepared, service is wonderful, and, on the odd occasion that there has been something missed, it is immediately corrected - with a smile and an apology. I do love dining here!!

    We had a table just off the bar, and just back from the view of the ice. I can see where it would be awesome to watch the game from the bar counter facing the ice. A little high up but you can really see the plays there. The food was pretty good - my salmon was a little overdone and perhaps not enough soy on it, so just a little dry for "alleged" wild BC Sockeye. Not super hot either. Drinks were pricey, but to be expected at the arena. Table was very loud - tip is to ask for the tables behind the glass behind the bar. When the announcements and music starts playing its crazy loud.

    Do not use open table to reserve a table. They stick you in the old smoking section behind the servers desk. They would not move our table to the open section even though there were plenty of open tables. The bill took over an hour as there were two mistakes, and the server told us she had to wait for the manager override. Wish I hadn't dined here at all.

    The restaurant has changed. When it was wieser's grill the food and service was excellent. Since becoming center ice grill its not near as good as it once was. The salmon was overcooked, the veg's mush, the ceasar salad bland. Maybe an off night tonight ??

    The waitress was very good however we had a reservation for 5:45pm 3 of us arrived and were seated. My husband arrived 10 min later and was told to look for us, not taken to his seat. We were seated in seats we didn't know existed let alone someone else not knowing they were they to look for them. He stood there for 20 min before I walked up and saw him there. No one at the front helped at all. Food was good.

    2 emails and a phone call the day of to confirm our reservation. Did not bother me, but could anoy some one. Given the limited hours of operation, reserving through Open Table is the way to go, especially for out of towners like me.

    The ambiance in the restaurant is great. Provided you get a seat looking at the ice, which is rare. Otherwise you're stuck in a busy, crowded, loud venue with not a lot of privacy. If you're looking for a romantic date I wouldn't recommend. The food was good, but not worth the price. They charge top quality prices for an average quality menu. Save yourself some effort and money and go out to eat somewhere downtown before the game.

    The Seafood Soup is fantastic and a meal in itself with a salad. The $32 Sirloin Steak is a tough piece of meat not worth anywhere near the price. Though the sauce is good, it can't cover up the poor quality of the meat. Convenient location though but pricey.
