We had a work breakfast and all
tried the buffet at the managers suggestion. The food was amazing, the server we had was friendly and extremely helpful and overall the experience could not have been better. Although the price is high for a breakfast we still left feeling completely satisfied. Would go again and again!"

Great atmosphere at this
restaurant. I loved their brunch, but at diner it could have been better. They need to serve their food on a hot plate as the hot food goes cold as plate absorbs the heat. Also, my son's surf and turf was not great as meat was dry. Mine was good and children's food was also great"

We had 1 hour between meetings for
lunch, but it turned into a bit of a rush at the end after waiting nearly an hour for our orders to be taken and lunch to be served."

Excellent brunch buffet with house
made bacon & sausages, Benedict station, fresh sliced flank steak, house made mustards, salmon and even a fresh donut machine!! Will definitely be back."

Attentive service and good
food. Prices, (except for coffee), are in line with other similar higher end hotel restaurants in Vancouver."

The menu is good and well
explained by the staff. Their knowledge of the food and the wines appears comprehensive, which helps you choose. Very friendly and helpful. Food and wine were both great"

Great food and good service as
always. Hope they have more selection. There was a new chef at the eggs station and she overcooked my eggs. "

We ordered oysters, corn soup,
spot prawn special, and the pork belly as our appetizers. Oysters were fresh, spot prawn special and corn soup were good as well. Pork belly was not bad just that it is kind of chewy. The lobster and steak as main course was very very delicious! Especially the mashed potato on the side, even though it gets a bit buttery but it still tastes very good! We were too full after main course so we decided not to order dessert; yet, the waiter served us apple crumble and chocolate truffles because it was Mother's Day so he thought my mom should end the meal with something sweet. That was very nice and the dessert was great as well. We would definitely visit there again :)"

As a hotel guest I decided to try
Oru once for breakfast buffet, and the overall experience didn't let me down. Food: Rich selection of pastries and egg dishes. The homemade salmon omelette is my favorite (and it's huge too!) Service: Excellent. Although I ate alone and sat in the corner, the waiters showed up often to address my needs. They made you feel like eating at a friend's place. Ambience: contemporary zen style and bright Noise level: quite low, but not too quiet. I will come back next time! "

I saw in the website that this
restaurant offer brunch buffet. I even confirm with the hostess. But when I got there, most is breakfast items. The only "brunch" items are grill frank steak and egg benedict. No salad, grilled veg, chicken, dessert.... And there are kids running around screaming. Maybe shouldn't expect much for $33.00 brunch buffet. "
Dined on 5/4/2014
Loved the buffet for breakfast.
Made to order bennies and omelettes were dee lish. Pastries were fantastic too!"

You can never go wrong with a
Fairmont!! The food, the service and the magnificent modern setting of Oru, are bar none sublime. If you need a memorable experience in fine dining, don't miss out on this one. It doesn't get any better than this."

No pressure at this restaurant.
You get to sit and enjoy both the wonderful food and the company of your dining companions."

Fresh, house made, wonderful.
Sushi appetizer plate enough for meal for two! Oru salad delicious! We ate lunch here. "

Server Joshua was amazing. I find
the service on this Easter Sunday way better than the usual weekends. Not sure why, but Oru definitely needs to keep staff like Joshua and get rid of the disgruntled rude staffs! Food was awesome especially the egg station. Never disapoints and the cook remembers every order! Will go back for sure! "

Walking through the Fairmont Hotel
lobby by the bar complete with live music and loads of people enjoying themselves, I couldn't wait to get upstairs as I expected this same vibrant and lively atmosphere to continue. However, before I even entered the building I should have been clued in that Oru was the one of the only restaurants downtown that had a completely open reservations available for a Friday night. We were one of maybe 6 tables in the entire restaurant... the place was empty. The hostess and servers were fantastic, but the food and the wine were another story. Don't get me wrong, the food was better than average, but not outstanding. The wine is much cheaper by the glass than buying a bottle, found this out afterwards."
Dined on 4/4/2014
Oru serves buffet style weekend
brunch. Variety of selections of bread, granola, fruits, hot dishes, and made-to-order Benedict, omelet, and other egg varieties. Beautiful layout of the restaurant with scenic ambiance, great for family, special occasion, or couple Sunday Brunch option."
Dined on 4/6/2014
Great menu selection of seafood.
Ceviche was very good and the main courses were delicious."
Dined on 3/21/2014
I take clients here frequently and
the food and service never disappoints! Recently took family there and service and food was impeccable, servers ever-attentive and genuine. Highly recommended!"
Dined on 3/20/2014
I had the steak frites salad which
was a little on the bland side and too small a portion for most men I would guess. The three sauces were interesting and very much needed to counter the bland taste of the steak. The fries were overcooked and the shoestring version not as good as the regular larger fries served elsewhere and were a bit soggy as you dug down. Not worth the price in my opinion. Another person at our table had the chicken which was a better portion but again, bland enough to ask for hot sauce to spice it up a bit. The date pudding for desert was very good. The service was really slow so if you don't have time to take 1.5 to 2 hours for lunch don't come on a Friday when they are extremely busy."
Dined on 3/14/2014
Took a friend to celebrate a
birthday. Our waiter Brandon and the rest of the staff were very attentive. They were wonderful to put our 2 appetizers on separate plates as we wanted to split them. The food is nicely presented and represents a good mix of west coast eats. The wines, either by the glass or the bottle, are very pricey but you are paying for the atmosphere. I have been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed."
Dined on 3/5/2014
Everything is good about the place
except for the rip off in wine prices and Vodka Martini. How can a restaurant charge 3 or 4 time the mark up for wine. Food and service great. Please get real. Not everyone is on an expense account."
Dined on 2/28/2014
I ordered Chicken, which was
flavorless and very hard to cut, same with the steak. No steak knife provided. Alittle dissapointed as I have dined there before. This was a very special day, as it was my 20th anniversary, alittle dissapointed. Only positive thing, desserts!"
Dined on 2/21/2014
We ordered the chefs special and
were not disappointed. The restaurant was not crowded, it was a Tuesday night, so they seated everyone with at least 2 tables between us. I appreciated the space and privacy that it created. The waiter was attentive and respectful. (2 women spending 150.00 doesn't always mean this). I would place this restaurant as my favourite high end in Vancouver."
Dined on 2/18/2014
Excellent location for brunch and
view of Vancouver water front."
Dined on 2/15/2014
We picked the restaurant because
of the Vegan options. The waiter was very helpful, accommodating & knowledgeable."
Dined on 2/13/2014
hard to find fault with this
experience. outstanding contemporary design and finish with none of the annoying bling and noise ambiance is modestly quiet suitable for romance or business wine list is extensive and interesting, and cocktails worth trying food was excellent, beautifully presented, and delicious - beet salad outstanding, ling cod and japanese bouilliabaise both creatively presented and full of special tastes"
Dined on 2/14/2014
Have been here before and will go
again. Menu is varied, but not too large. Interesting food, done well/served well/timed right. Nice ambience, and a general 'feel good' vibe. Drinks rather expensive, but not out of line for downtown. Great location too. Generally a first pick whenever out for a business luncheon."
Dined on 2/12/2014
Buffets can always be hit or miss
so one is always careful about making that choice when there are other great a la carte items on the menu. Fortunately Oru made that decision easy on Sunday with a fabulous brunch buffet at a reasonable price. There was a wide enough variety to please every palate, including custom egg bennies that all four of us ordered. Plus the service was top notch. My only ouch was the cost of alcohol - mimosas were delicious but pricey. I certainly highly recommend to anyone looking for a great brunch in Vancouver - we'll be back."
Dined on 2/9/2014
Food flavour was good, however, I
found the spareribs (with the lobster) slightly over-cooked/dry on the inside. Garnish/final touches a bit too plain/sparse. For the price, could've been generous with some greens/veggies inclusive. We had to order a separate side dish to complete the meal and, thankfully, the crispy kale/ Brussels sprouts with chorizo was surprisingly delicious."
Dined on 2/8/2014
We enjoyed the most delicious food
ever! Each course was unique and well timed. We can't wait to return."
Dined on 2/8/2014
Getting the Cape Breton Lobster
was the highlight of the night, it was nicely tasted. The other main course in the menu: Angus Reserve Short Rib was somewhat a bit tasteless though the meat was so soft and moist. Having the pork belly as the appetizer and Strawberry Shortcake Mille Feuille + local cheeses were also great choices of the night. The service and ambience were awesome!"
Dined on 1/29/2014
The staff were very welcoming and
give the extra personal touch. We were seated by the window over looking the Convention Centre and was magnificent. The presentation of the food was very nice. The lobster we had was grilled perfectly. The best was the dessert. I heard their steak is very good, but it was not offered for the dine out menu. Will definitely come back again and have already recommended it to friends and family."
Dined on 1/31/2014
This was my first time at Oru.
Great dining experience. Service and food very very good. Drinks were a bit pricey but not bad considering one of us had to be the DD. I recommend this place."
Dined on 2/1/2014
Oru was fantastic with a scenic
view and amazing food. I would definitely recommend it. Overally, Oru was great."
Dined on 2/2/2014
This was my second time at Oru.
Both times were for a set menu (Julia Childs dinner and dine out) but the food and service were very good both times. I look forward to trying it again on a regular menu night."
Dined on 2/2/2014
Went to Oru for Dine Out. The
service was outstanding. The pork belly appetizer and cheese platter dessert was average. For the main, my lobster was cooked perfectly and the seasoned perfectly so as to let the flavour of lobster shine. However, the brussel sprout, kale and sausage mix was rich to the point of overwhelming."
Dined on 2/2/2014
excellent romantic restaurant.
They have excellent service with outstanding good food."
Dined on 2/2/2014
Food and service matches the high
prices, but this place gets my vote for the most overpriced wine list in Vancouver. I saw wines on it for 3 to 4 times retail prices (already exorbitant in BC) and there were only a handful under $100. We paid $87 for a bottle that tasted like plonk. I won't be going back."
Dined on 2/1/2014
My boyfriend and I decided to try
Oru during the Dine Out Vancouver Festival, a restaurant that we normally wouldn't try because of the cost. But with a three-course menu including an entire Cape Breton Lobster for $38, we were sold! The service started with my confirmation call the afternoon of our meal and ended when we grabbed our coats with bellies full. I won't go on too much about our meal, but will say that everything was amazing and the flavours blew our expectations out of the water. The service was top-notch and our server was fantastic. She completely understood the concept of Dine Out and summed it up perfectly: "we participate in Dine Out with the ultimate hope that our diners will come back once the promotion has ended.""
