    The service was friendly and fast. They were able to accommodate request for a window seat. Decor is just okay but Horizons has a great view west from Bby to Vancouver - this was the primary selection factor. Dinner is best served with clear skies. Great for an anniversary.

    Loved it overall. A group of 20 seniors arrived shortly after us and the servers were pressed to serve all the tables after that. It was a good half hour wait between starter and main course. Other than that, the food was excellent.

    Our party of four ordered a variety of dishes, some were hits(the Bison carpaccio for starters) and some were misses(the smoked sable fish). Overall a $320 bill for an average dinner for four was quite high, but the staff were attentive, the views amazing and the ambience was good.

    This restaurant has become one of our favorites. The food is great, the view amazing, service is good to excellent. We had the Chefs Special. The Alder smoked oysters Yum, Rock Fish entree was delicious and we shared the amazing dessert. Wine List includes lots of local wines that go very well with the food. Our favorite place to take guests. I have even bought the cookbook and love it too. I take my handicapped mother here for Brunch often. The Omelet Bar has something for everyone and the menu items are not just eggs. The Seafood crepes are terrific but enough for 2 people so we share. The Gnocchi with Forest Mushrooms YUM. Prices are very reasonable for delicious food. Must go to Restaurant. Get on the mailing list for monthly specials

    Dined on 8/29/2014
    It has been quite a while since our last visit; sadly nothing has improved. The fare is mediocre -- with a new twist; they charge for bread. Seriously, we order a $50+ bottle of wine, 2 appies @ $13+ each and two entrées at $30 each and you need to throw in a $2 "gotcha" for a few slices of baguette. The food was okay, not memorable or fine dining calibre. The service was okay, but the whole experience felt "processed". In and out in an hour and ten minutes. Not exactly a $160 dining experience. Amazing view -- pack a sandwich; skip the restaurant. Not going back.

    Rebuilt after a fire with very basic decor like most family restaurants. Staff very nice, our waiter very professional and looked after us well. The food was good although more expensive than other fine dining facilities like Cloud Nine, but minus the "fine dining feel". The thing that disappointed was that in spite of my advising them in the special request section of their website reservation, my wife's birthday was not acknowledged. Since we are accustomed to a piece of cake being given for special occasions at other establishments, I asked on the way out and was told that they do not do that, but that they put a candle in something you order (which did not happen either). Other establishments happily share in our celebration.

    Great ambiance, enthusiastic staff, and decadent menu but very little price differentiation for menu items in the same category. We were seated for ten minutes before being greeted by our server which is a few minutes too many and with a menu of this caliber you need to make your guests feel important. Good overall experience. I recommend the three-course meal for $39.

    Almost every part of dinner at Horizons was disappointing. The pulled pork spring rolls were tiny with almost no pork, the steak came out cool, chewy and pretty tasteless, the mashed potatoes were bland, and while the short ribs were cooked perfectly they lacked flavour. Our server was very nice and the steak was taken off the bill, but there weren't enough servers for the restaurant so the service was quite slow. The only enjoyable part of dinner was the great view of Vancouver, but that's not enough for us to go back.

    Always a fantastic experience. Food is great, staff are fantastic and they do a great job with the kids! No actual kid menu, but they will make a variety of items for them. Maple salmon is so great that I've consistently ordered it for YEARS! Everything is fresh and delish! I'll be going again soon :)

    This is not the first time that we have been to Horizons. We always pick it for family events and Monday was our Persian New Year. The food was delicious and the service friendly, efficient and excellent. Have had this waitress many times and she always lives up to her reputation. We were lucky and the view was fantastic. Informed all friends of the August special and to make sure to come over to bring back so many good memories. The desert was out of this world

    I always enjoyed going to Horizons and have been there half a dozen times already. I wanted to take my father there as it was his birthday. Overall, We didn't really have a good experience. First off, the waiter took too long to come over to place our order (15-20 minutes). The food took a while to come and the "3 course meal" wasn't a 3 course meal, it was a 2 course meal because we had to share the dessert! Secondly, I expected to have a complimentary birthday dessert for my father but that didn't happen as well.. We all had to share the so called dessert that was on the 3 corse menu. When I went to Horizons before, my cousin had a complimentary birthday dessert, what happened this time?

    We hadn't been to Horizons in more than ten years, so thought we'd give it a try for our anniversary. Though we had a reservation for a window seat, we were offered a patio table which we gladly accepted. The house martini was delicious, it was a beautiful warm night and the scenery and views were amazing. My Husband had a shrimp appetizer and Cioppino and loved them both. My Barnston Island salad was delicious, but I can't say the same for my rare New York Steak, twice it came out well done on a screaming hot plate! I ate it anyway and the flavour was ok, but I was so disappointed. We were comp'd our martinis, but that didn't save the night. I'm willing to give them another chance, but right now Hubby says we'll wait another ten years.
