Diner Reviews
  • "Too pricy, the quality of food was good but portions too small"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Loved the buffet for breakfast. Made to order bennies and omelettes were dee lish. Pastries were fantastic too!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "No pressure at this restaurant. You get to sit and enjoy both the wonderful food and the company of your dining companions."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Fresh, house made, wonderful. Sushi appetizer plate enough for meal for two! Oru salad delicious! We ate lunch here. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "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! "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "We picked the restaurant because of the Vegan options. The waiter was very helpful, accommodating & knowledgeable."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "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
  • "Oru was fantastic with a scenic view and amazing food. I would definitely recommend it. Overally, Oru was great."

  • "excellent romantic restaurant. They have excellent service with outstanding good food."
    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
  • "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
  • "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 wife and I took another couple for dine out last Saturday. For all of us, this was our first time to dine at this restaurant. We are very pleased with the décor, the ambience, the service and the food. I had the short rib and another friend ordered the lobster. The short rib was tender and not fatty with a delicious sauce."
    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.""
