Griffins - Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
Menu could use improvement.Menu could use improvement. Not much of a variety. Prime rib was out-of-this-world tender.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only criticism is the lackMy only criticism is the lack of a godd wine menu.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellentI have been coming to this restaurant since 17 years ago and usually in small groups and each time is always a good eating experience. Lunch items are always varied and I like the idea of having three sections for appetizer, then the main course, and finally dessert. Honestly I am very much happy with just the appetizer section and come out satisfied without the need to go to the main course.
I find the dessert choices not within my personal selection though as I personally prefer fresh fruits rather than lots of sweet cakes which I found abundant in today's menu, June 12, 2013.
Lastly, it is a great experience overall and I will not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMclassy,We enjoyed my daughter Birthday
elegant and good food5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMnot sure about the changeAll is still good but the new menu is very limited the dinning has moved into what is common place now where presentation of the food is every thing, well its not ,I will have to see if some more changes are on the way before I give up on them5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere, the serviceGreat atmosphere, the service and food were outstanding.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA safe betI usually visit Griffin's a few times a year and they always deliver good, consistent food quality as well as service. They changed up the menu slightly in the last year or so, I was sad to see a few favorite entrees disappear especially the dessert buffet. But they still execute the current dishes very well.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantHave never been to this restaurant before. What a great restaurant to celebrate our 30 th wedding anniversary. The service & the food was outstanding. We will return soon for another visit for great food & service. Thank you again.......4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an earlier dining timeWe had an earlier dining time (6:30 p.m.), and there were not many other diners there at when we arrived. Seating was prompt, but it took quite some time before our waiter approached us. More diners came in shortly after we arrived, apparently planning on dinner before the hockey game and it appeared that all of the wait staff (including our waiter) were dedicating their time to those people, resulting in fairly slow service for our table. When it did arrive, the food was very good and generously portioned. After we finished the meal, it took quite some time for our waiter to bring us our cheque. I believe in value for money, however, for the price range at Griffins, I would have expected much better service.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were excellent.
