  • Poor food and understaffed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    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

    Dined on 8/14/2014
    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?

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    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.

    You usually can't go wrong at horizons but the menu still totally lacks innovation. The shrimp cocktail was small but the lamb was excellent. The homemade ice cream is also excellent.

    The food was good, though not extraordinary. The tagliatelle with clams was fine, with plenty of clams. A few more non-sea-food choices would be appreciated by those who do not like seafood. The service was outstanding - attentive without being fussy.

    Once again, our favourite restaurant did not disappoint. We chose a late seating so we could see the fireworks. Our food (oysters and cioppino) was exquisite, the wine, delicious and the dessert "Sampler" - out of this world. Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Another stellar evening at Horizons!

    We dined at Horizon's on July 22/14. We were seated promptly and had a table with a very good view. Since salmon is in season now, I had the Alder BBQ salmon. The salmon was tasty ( slightly overcooked, should be medium ) The Mango sauce was a bit bland, it should have had a mustard sauce. My husband had the Maple salmon because he had it before and was very impressed, only this time it was not as good as it was then. My brother-in-law had the Coconut prawns and seemed to really enjoy them. Overall the meal was good, not exceptional. The view from this restaurant is great. They have nice rose gardens and play areas for kids, all-in-all a very nice spot to have lunch on a sunny day.

    My wife and I had dinner at Horizons for our wedding anniversary. It was our first time going there, and we both agreed we would return. The food was very nicely prepared, a lot of care went into sourcing locally and organically, presentation was well done. Service was unobtrusive but friendly. The weather was not conducive to sitting outside, but the windows afforded a lovely view of the park and the city beyond. Overall, a lovely evening out. We also received a coupon for a discount next time, which we weren't expecting. Nice surprise.

    We picked Horizons because it was close to home and offers a great view of Vancouver for our visiting family from Australia. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Our party of 8 thoroughly enjoyed a variety of appetizers including the Tuna Tataki (delicious!), fresh mozzarella and tomato and pulled pork belly spring rolls. The main course meals were excellent and according to our guests "Some of the best food they've had while visiting Vancouver".

    We went to Horizons for our anniversary when a local friend suggested we go there rather than drive over to North Vancouver to its sister restaurant, the Salmon House. I wish we hadn't changed our reservation to Horizons: It was priced as though it should have been amazing, but sadly the view and the clean bathroom were the highlights of the evening. The service was fair/poor, the salmon was less exciting than I expected. The apetizer was tasteless, my husband had the maple salmon which was very good, I got the sockeye and it was dry and flavorless. We had better food at the Cool Cactus chain for half the price and twice the service. We won't go back.
