    Incredible views of the lower mainland. Dependable upper end wet coast food. Service is a bit slow, but with so much to look at it's hardly noticeable. There are monthly specials, so check their website.

    Lovely venue and entrees are very good. The ceasar salad was $10 and was nothing - small, knife chopped romain, no croutons, parmesan or anything. The calamari was much better. Desserts are also overpriced for what you get.

    My 93 year old Mother and I dine here most times she is in Burnaby. The staff were outstanding as usual. Her dinner was lovely. I was somewhat disappointed that my potato component was like a large unflavoured tater tot; otherwise my dinner was also well presented and tasty. The food was presented in a visually pleasing manner. I will return though mostly because of the service and view.

    We went as a group of 9 for our daughter's graduation. The The beautiful setting on Centennial Mountain with its smashing views made for a wonderful ambience. The great food and excellent service provided the icing on the cake for our dining experience. We highly recommend Horizons as a first rate establishment.

    our table was by the window with an amazing view but the table itself was small and tight. I wished the table can be a bit wider so that when our food came we didn't have to move everything in order to fit them. However, everything else was excellent.

    This place is great! Awesome views & their food is what they're known for. It's definitely a place to go to if you want to enjoy yourself. Now if one is going out & looking for things to pick about....no restaurant is or will be fit for ones' satisfaction. Horizon definitely fits the Fine Dining category in every level. We will return for more occasions to come!

    We eat at Horizons often and also have attended New Years Eve a couple times. The whole experience is always perfect. I have to say this past visit was Not. The Flavors were perfect but our 2 orders of the Wild salmon were very undercooked and so was the risotto served with it. My wife's maple salmon was perfect.

    The food wasn't bad. Nothing to really write home about, but not bad. The service, however, was absolutely awful. at a restaurant where I'm paying $100 for two people to eat, I'm expecting some pretty excellent service. 15 minutes after we were seated, our server finally took our first drink order. It wasn't until after she left, that our water glasses were filled. And once we were nearly finished our meals, she asked if we wanted our bread basket that was previously forgotten. We didn't bother. I might have thought more of the food if the service was better, but all in all we were pretty unimpressed and probably won't be returning.

    Well matching with the restaurant name "Horizons" - we love the atmosphere here, quiet and romantic, with excellent scenic view. The food, wow, we all love the food, same good taste as the scenic view as outside. The service is the best in town. We all enjoy very much and sure will come back soon.

    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.
