Great Mothers Day BuffetWe had mothers day brunch ORU and it was a great experience for the entire family. With a nice view of the buffet from where we sat we could see that ORU spared no expense for the mothers. There was a full selection of expensive seafood options, cheese and deli meat options as well as the made to order brunch staples. The desert selection was outstanding made by the inhouse pastry chef. All in all with the great service and relaxed environment of the staff we had a wonderful mothers day brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ServerBrandon served our table and he is very professional.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial lunch meeting...Had great fun re-acquainting with a friend whom I've not seen in quite awhile. So, this was a very special occasion!
Perfect venue for the event... great service and tasty food.
Will definitely return soon!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant, good foodWe had a nice dinner, but disappointed that at 6pm on a Sunday in May with a full raw bar did not have any oysters (the reason we chose the place). The food otherwise was very good, but the wine list was silly overpriced, with bottles at least 2x the cost we had seen at a fine restaurant in another part of downtown Vancouver the night before. We would go back, but probably just for food and not bother with wine - and would make sure they actually had oysters first. We also liked the airy, quiet ambience, but most tables (including our table) lacked a decent view - surprising since the Fairmont is right on the harbor. Wait staff was absolutely excellent.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!!I had the pleasure of dining at ORU this past Friday (May 3/13). It was a friend's birthday celebration and another friend accompanied us. The room is airy, bright and amazingly quiet given its openness. I was so impressed with the décor! The servers were attentive and friendly and they didn't miss a beat! We finished the evening in the lobby bar (Avital and Fung? had arranged a reserved table) which was a great treat, a piece of paradise with a very cool vibe! Samantha Flatman stopped by our table to welcome us and to ensure that we were taken care of! The three of us were so pleasantly surprised with the ride home in the Westend of Vancouver in one of the Fairmont BMW's. An amazing evening! Sincerely, Dr. Daryl R. Croxall5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
