    The food is always delicious here and portions are more than enough for us. We always have fish because it is what the restaurant is famous for but appetizers and desserts never fail to disappoint. The price is a bit steep so we save it for special occasions. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic and I enjoy not having to yell at my dinner partners in order to be heard.

    Dined on 11/15/2014
    I should compare this to the Fairmont but I did. Ambience and service were great. Tea wasn't kept hot and we had to keep asking for hot water. The sandwiches were tasty and had a good variety. The scones were great although the jam wasn't home-made and the "cream" was actually whipped white chocolate. With the pastries being also chocolate that was on overkill. As for the pastries, they were my least favourite. Too much chocolate, the coconut cream pastries was very runny. There was one that I really enjoyed - it had a very light chocolate filling, with a touch of silky smooth caramel and crunchy pralines all made in a chocolate mould in the shape of a tea cup. Overall not sure I would go back for Afternoon Tea, The Fairmont's is just too good.

    There is an elegance to the restaurant, and the evening was amazing. From the moment my wife and I entered, we knew it was going to be a great night, and we were not disappointed. All the food was incredible, and the staff were excellent. We received the perfect amount of service and follow-up, and I look forward to returning here in the future,

  • A "Must" When in Vancouver

    Dined on 10/30/2014
    Every few years when we visit Vancouver, we always go to the Fish House. It's a "must" on our dining list, and it's always wonderful. I think I had my best meal this time. The "trio of simply grilled fish" was absolutely outstanding. The assortment of vegetables with it were perfect, a little crunchy (the way I like them), and very seasonal. Our waiter was very attentive (not overly). Can't wait for our next visit!

    We came here for a birthday dinner, which started out with a sweet note wishing our table happy birthday on the menu. This small unexpected gesture was an indication of the attention to detail at the Fish House. The meal was sumptuous opening with crab cakes and continuing with the lovely delicateness of halibut, mixed grill and nicoise salad for each of our entrees. Our waiter Jake was perpetually cheerful and Jaime another waiter was superb; charming, engaging and helpful. Overall the Fish House is a hidden gem filled with delicious seafood, that is sustainable and reasonable, an intimate atmosphere and a lovely location, that we look forward to returning to.

    The dining room was EXTREMELY DARK. We weren't given the "full menue" something that was less then appealing choices. THEN they drop the soup on our 80 year old friend!! The poor excuse of a manager spent approximately 30 seconds With her. Just long enough to apologize and give her his business card. Then when it came time to leave we requested a taxi ( there were 6 of us). Apparently that wasn't mentioned so they sent a Prius.

    Customer service...Found it lacking. We used a coupon for the high tea. Once the server got us the tea and the multi-tiered tray of goodies, we were left on our own. We had to flag the server down to get hot water for our tea. Never once did the server check in on us. Wouldn't recommend it.

    We had been to the Fish House a number of times before. The food and service has always been good. This time, the service was good. We had a few issues with the food. My fiance ordered the seafood risotto. The seafood was good, but the risotto was very salty. We told the waiter. He offered to bring another one, but my fiance did not want to send the whole thing back because the seafood was good. So she asked for a side of risotto, which our waiter brought. I ordered my steak medium rare, but it was more medium to medium well. I let it slide. Our waiter gave us a complimentary desert and a little more wine for my finace.

    The savory items were good, but the sweets were not as expected. Table wasn't set up until we arrived so we waited for a bit. Then, we had mentioned in our reservation that it is for high tea but the staff didn't read the notes at all. Luckily they have made extra otherwise we would have wasted half a day and parking. I don't think I would go back for high tea again. I think the place is a bit outdated for the price they are charging.

    While we live 1000 miles from Vancouver, whenever we are in that city we make it a point to eat dinner at the Fish House. Superb food with relatively unusual dishes like smoked black cod. The service is always very good, but this time we were fortunate to have a waiter who truly knew the menu and wine list. Bravo Vytas! If you're in Vancouver area, and like sea food, don't miss this place!

    Waiter seens only interested in tips, but basics he did not know. For example: for the espresso no sugar was offered, Due the low service we only give 10% tip, after that he show us that, the restaurant wants to be a gourmet restaurant - but only the prices are gourmet, quality of food was only ok.

My wife had the evening's trio of black cod, halibut, and arctic char -- all of which were good. Service was prompt and professional. We'd love to return.

    We had an awesome experience at the Fish House in Stanley Park. The location is romantic, tucked away in the park, but easy to find with signs posted. We had 3 kinds of grilled fish and a surf & turf with scallops. It was all brilliant, cooked to perfection and the service was above what we could ask for. I picked up the bill, and found it to be all reasonable. Will go back. Its worth driving for.

    The Fish House has been around for a long time in Stanley Park, and unfortunately, it is starting to feel a bit like that. The clientele appears to be mostly older people, and the menu probably haven't changed in years. That said, the food is still good (the Salmon Wellington was superb and the Duck paté was fine). The service, however, was not all that attentive, and they even stupidly cranked open the overhanging tarpaulin while we were sitting under it, ruining my wine and drinking water with small black flakes from the old fabric and mechanism. (they replaced it after I pointed it out). Overall it feels a bit overpriced and a little stale, but nevertheless, it is a grand venue in the park, and very pleasant near sunset.
