    Overall food was ok but my table is right next to the door where it's blocking the view, however, I had mention would like a window table for a good view when I made the reservation, well, I am very disappointed for my sitting arrangement. Btw, if the server offer u some breads before your food comes, this is cost money instead of free, plus the bread is not taste good.

    The service was excellent but the food very disappointing. The portions are small for the price. I had 3 cherry tomatoes accompanying my tail end, thin piece of salmon and 3 small potatoes. You are paying for the location here.

    Fantastic location with loads of great parking. Beautiful grounds to stroll around before or after dinner. Friendly staff with a beautiful ambiance and spectacular scenic vistas. The food was top notch and a good value. Would recommend Horizons for a any special occasion or entertaining visitors to our city, or even for just a great getaway dinner.

    Attentive waiters and waitresses. Good service. The dessert was serve too late though (was serve 20 minutes after we were done eating the main meal) For the price of the food, the bread should at least have been include in the price and more serving for the veggies. Food was okay, could be better to compare it with other fine dining restaurants.

    It seems Horizons is not as good as it used to be. The setting and view are still great, but the food is just average. The service was very dissapointing, very slow and minimal interaction with the server. After dining there for many years I think it is time to give Horizons a break and try some other places.

    We wanted a nice dinner out but did not want to drive into Vancouver on a Sunday evening. Our reservations were for 5:30 so we had a spectacular view of Vancouver and the North Shore mountains, topped by a beautiful sunset. I usually have the maple salmon with the prawns (I'm a creature of habit), but had the caprese salad and the prosciutto wrapped ling cod - both were delicious, especially the cod which was a healthy serving and cooked to perfection! I usually go low fat, however, the lemon butter was so aromatic that I did indulge this time. Others in our party had the maple salmon, the BC salmon, and the duck. All were pleased with their selection. Service was also impeccable!

    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.

    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.
