Food tasted very good, but
Food tasted very good, but it just took too long to line up for the hot food section. if they can locate the pasta bar more away from the hot dishes buffet, then people can choose to line up for different stuff since some people may want to get more food from buffet only.
Also, the parking slip has also created some problem. We arrived the parking lot at 6:05 but the time printed on the ticket was 5:32. When we tried to pay by the self check out machine, they charged us $12.75 ($9 for the flat rate after 6:00pm and $3.75 for the half hour before 6:00). The issue was settled by the attendant and we paid $9, but it happened to a few other visitors and they have already paid at the self check-out that the attendant can't do anythi

Opera night- March 30, 2013
I had a dinner reservation for 4 for the Opera night.
Food was great- lots of variety with the buffet, chef made past to order.
Entertainment was great- Opera was nice during a nice dinner.
Service was great- Waiter's name was Neal. Very attentive and professional.
Will dine at Cafe Pacifica again.

Best Mother's Day Buffet In Town
I have been to many Mother's Day brunches in the lower mainland and Cafe Pacifica is the only place that could handle the number of people, maintain the food quality, the presentation (beautiful display of food), and service on this day when almost everyone goes out to treat their moms. I used to dread going out to a restaurant on Mother's Day because from my experience, every restaurant that I went to would be overwhelmed by the crowd and the service would be just horrible. But what a nice surprise this year at Cafe Pacifica. It was relaxing even with so many people, the view was great, even the live performance was decent! Love it!

Excellent brunch experience
I took my daughter and son in law for Sunday brunch on my daughter's birthday. There was a wide selection of buffet food, and the food was top notch. The service people were easily accessible and helpful, yet unobtrusive. This is a large restaurant, so tables are not at all too close to each other. Very nice ambience, bright with sunshine and subtle piano playing in the background. Too expensive for me on a regular basis, but nice for a special occasion. The only problem was that the signage in the hotel parkade was so poor we ended up having to walk quite a distance from car to restaurant. That's a warning for those who have mobility problems, as I do. Also, once in the hotel lobby, no signage to direct us to the restaurant.

One of a kind
dinner with a live opera performance is definitely something you can't find anywhere else! The Italian buffet was great and staff was really polite. Loved the live singing. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Vancouver.

Lunch Therapy at Cafe Pacifica
I work in Canada Place. Even though the menu is pricey, I enjoy lunching here with colleagues. The cobb salad, treasures of the sea and bento box are excellent. Life is short and lunch therapy is always welcome! If you don't treat yourself well, who will?

variety of food but not all fancy
Sunday brunch at Cafe Pacifica is a lovely experience. Servers are always friendly and helpful, which together with spacious seating area, restaurant setup and piano performance created pleasant dinning experience. However, the food needs some improvement since it was not as good as last year.

Worth the wait
I had promised my partner a memorable dining experience at Pan Pacific (based on my previous experience with my co-workers' Christmas dinner get together-7 years ago). The Italian Opera Buffet did not disappoint. It was a Birthday Celebration to remember! We loved the food, the ambiance, the special dessert for the celebrant & the special Birthday Song (opera style) dedicated to all celebrants. The pictures & short video clip we took were promptly shared via Facebook; the birthday song brought tears to our friends' eyes..

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Café Pacifica and it was a real treat. This was our first experience with the Opera buffet and it was truly memorable. The singing was just right, not too loud or too soft. The food was excellent with enough variety to choose from. We will be looking forward to returning there in the very near future.

We enjoyed the food immensely at Cafe Pacifica. The salad selections were great. Although there is only 3 hot dishes as main courses (one meat, one fish and one vegetarian) but the food was of very good quality. The pasta station was also great!

While staying at the Pan Pacific we attended the Opera Buffet. We enjoyed the food and music very much and I was very pleased that the hotel had noted on my booking that it was my husbands birthday. They gave us a table with a view as I had requested and included my husband when birthdays were mentioned and brought him a dessert with a candle and special greeting. It was a very memorable evening for us both. My only adverse comment would be that many of the diners did not seem interested in the music and therefore it was difficulty to hear at times. This last comment is no reflection on the Café Pacifica.

Wonderful night out
My wife and I decided to celebrate our 3rd anniversary with the Opera buffet at Cafe Pacifica. And we made the right choice. As a buffet, the selections were not much to choose especially for hot items; but the quality is definitely up to par. And the overall dinner experiences was great.
The service was first class. And it was a treat to be able to listen to the wonderful live music and to enjoy a very good quality of food.

Best Birthday Sunday Brunch
Pan Pacific Sunday Market Brunch was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday or any special occasion. Memorable experience with amazing selection of breakfast, lunch, and dessert options. Fabulous ambiance with live piano music and a beautiful view of the North Shore. Customer service was excellent amd the servers surprised us with a birthday cake! Definitely recommend for any special occasion.

The spectacular moment
My boyfriend and I celebrated his birthday at Pan Pacifica. We both loved the sceneries, vibes, music and the food. Overall, it is our favourite lunch buffet in Vancouver.
