Diner Reviews
  • "Our experience food-wise was almost perfect - stay away from the lamb shank, tho'. Service overall was extremely slow. If it had been a nice evening that would have made it better, but the clouds hid the city and that was too bad. Go on a nice day."

  • "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."

  • "Saturday evening chef special "lamb shank was like a piece of dried beef jerky. It came with risotto but I requested mash potatoes. When served in a bowl it was appropriate, as I could almost drink the potatoes, there was too much liquid added"

  • "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"."

  • "Everything about our experience at Horizon's was amazing. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we decided to try Horizon's and we were not disappointed. Both the food and service were top notch. We will definitely be back."

  • "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."

  • "Horizon’s Restaurant Perched atop Burnaby Mountain is Horizon’s restaurant surrounded by scenic gardens and stunning views of Vancouver, the inlet and the North Shore mountains. I was there recently to celebrate my son and daughter-in-law’s seventh anniversary. It was a beautiful warm summer evening and as we arrived a half hour early, we spent some time wandering around and enjoying the sights. The totem poles and the rose gardens were particularly impressive. For a lovely night out, especially if you have guests new to Vancouver, give Horizon’s on Burnaby Mountain a try and allow time before or after dinner for a stroll around the grounds."

  • "It was our 34th Wedding Anniversary and we went for lunch. Very pleasant. It was a beautiful day which amplified the magnificence of the location. The waitress was excellent. The food was good, the portions a little small maybe! Enough for me but for a big person maybe not. Overall an excellent lunch experience. I would definately recommend it to friends."

  • "Our server was very professional & helpful. The food was quite good & our salad was really exceptional. We often come here for special occasions & to entertain out of town guests. They always like the experience & so we continue do do this. The surrounding pak is also a nice part of the visit."

  • "Immediately on arriving our waiter was very attentive to our table. Food was beautifully prepared, delicious. Charging for table buns should be eliminated.Menu could have a couple of less attractive items for folks who are not so high end. Say simple pasta or even a burger??we had the dessert sampler it was amazing."

  • "I choose this place for its menu, good view and location which is easily approachable from all sides of greater Vancouver. I sensed the low energy in front of the house. None of the staffs smiles or greets the customers. I felt like I'm not welcomed even though I had a reservation. We were seated in table for more than 10 minutes and none of the staff attended us. I saw servers moving around looking at us and ignoring us completely. I left my table to alert the management to send someone to my table. 5 STAR - FOOD. RICH IN FLAVOR. COOKED TO PERFECTION. I recommend this place for its excellent food."

  • "We have not been to Horizons for over six years and though we would see if things improved! THe food prpearation was poorly prepared! Everything was overcooked. We won't be returning again unless a professionally run firm has the establishment! The decor was out dated and sterile!"

  • "Food was good, service freindly. Meal came out quickly and was hot. Seafood chowder was very good. Rockfish also very Good. Only negative note - We had Requested a windon seat on reservation. When we arrived even though window seats were avalaible we were ushered strait to table at center of restaurant. Only when we noted we had requested window seat, did the server take note of our request and then took us to window seat."

  • "They charge for bread that we didn't even order. The noise level is really high.. The view isn't that great. Take a walk on Burnaby mountain then go somewhere else for a nice meal; Horizons isn't worth the high price."

  • "Great view. We usually bring out of town visitors. Service has been better other times. The lady seemed to be always in a hurry. Our drinks were ordered in 2 stages. We ordered wine and before we could order some beers she was gone. We also had to stop her from leaving as we wanted to ask questions regarding the menu. Both drinks and food took a while to get to us. It seemed strange as it was not very busy Monday evening after 7:15."

  • "Two of us went to Sunday brunch & ordered omelette buffet. Omelette was great & all baked goods are excellent but service wasn't impressed. Took too long to get a bill & the server didn't come to check if we were doing ok. We had to wait for a long time each time we needed to ask something."

  • "I took my 12 year old daughter on a date. I picked Horizons for the food and service, but mainly the location. Greeted well and seated a little early. Head waiter was very good even brought us a special drink to celebrate, completely intuitively. Their needs to be more communication between bussers, food runners and the head waiter. I had to eat my dinner with the knife I used for butter as we didn't get one. My daughter inadvertently used the wrong fork for the appie. The knife and fork were taken, but nothing replaced. Entrees were brought whilst my daughter was in the bathroom and left. She ate with a salad fork. Cafe/tea refills late and had to ask multiple people. Overall food was good, service was good with room to improve."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Once they sat us down, we waited 20+ mins before flagging the only person that we've seen in our area, a bus boy, to tell him we haven't even been served water. Our server came shortly after, apologized, but never saw her again as they sent a different server to serve us after. He was apologetic, but seemed rushed. When our carpaccio came, the person delivering it just dropped the plate on the table & made a big sound. When my Smoke Sablefish came, the broth had made it's way on to the rim & almost spilled so I had to wipe the plate again. After dinner, they gave us some Italian sparkling wine but it was too sweet to drink. The bill came with a $22 discount for a future visit, which seemed insincere, as we won't be coming back."

  • "It was my wife's 50th birthday and I asked the restaurant to organise a cake. Instead I get told that they don't do this stuff and that I would have to choose deserts off the menu or pay $2 per head if I brought the cake from outside. I thought this was such a poor experience. What would it have cost the restaurant to ask: what type of cake, what budget and then get it organised? My bill came to $800. I could have afforded another $50 for the cake . The pursuit of " wow". It what differentiates one restaurant from another."

  • "I went to Horizons for Fathers Day. It wasn't too crowded which was absolutely perfect and, lucky for us, the rain had cleared up enough to see the fabulous view off Burnaby Mountain. My curry tofu was creamy and done to perfection. My dad enjoyed his ribs and my mum thought the chicken was great. Food was overall incredible. The only sore point was that we waited 40 minutes for our meals and, although the staff was very nice, they weren't very attentive to us despite the fact that they didn't seem busy. My drink wasn't refilled and we kept needing to flag the server down. Besides that, I'd like to see more vegetarian options too. The curry was great and I suppose I'll have the gnocchi at my next visit but I'll be out of options after that."

  • "Food was average. Great place and services. Been there many times for dinner food was great. Another disappointment for lunch."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Start to finish the experience was poor - the table was not big enough to accommodate our group, we were charged (without notice) for the bread "basket" which amounted to 4 somewhat stale, tasteless rolls, the food order took 50 minutes to arrive and when it was received, the salmon was dry and tasteless and the steak was "ok". Overall a very disappointing experience. We've been coming to this restaurant for 20 years (one or twice a year) and things have noticeably declined. We won't be going back."
