We have special dietary needs
We have special dietary needs and none of the menu items worked for us. One of the chefs came out to discuss what we want and made a special risotto dish from scratch for us. We didn't mind the extra wait time (the chef confirmed that with us), and the risotto was excellent!

The food was well cooked but
The food was well cooked but the taste was a little overwhelming at times. I did not find the food spectacular. It was not bad, but it did not wow me. The desserts were massive though! I love the ambiance and the service there. The waitress who served us was very attending and tolerant.

Fantastic! "Art of Taste"
Fantastic! "Art of Taste" package from Vaneats was amazing, delicious food. The chef even prepared for us one of their monthly specials ... that was a bonus! I don't really like beets but the beet sorbet was something else. Yummy in my tummy. The desert portion was huge.

I generally meet old work pals for lunch here as it is quiet, the service is great, and we don't get interrupted by the wait staff when we are trying to catch up with each other's news.

We had a large group, and Mosaic was incredibly helpful with this. Everyone RAVED about the food and the menu choices (and this was a tough crowd to please). I was very thankful for the excellent menu choices and the helpful management and service. Would highly recommend!

I always enjoy my visits to Mosaic Grill. Michael was our waiter during a lunch meeting I had with some out of town clients....he was an attentive waiter. The Executive Chef, Daniel, made a special appearance to say "hi" as he's my co-worker's brother. Daniel made the infamous Mosaic choc tower cake for my out of town client. My client was really impressed! She said that everything is big in Toronto, but we have bigger cakes out here! I ordered the salmon, as well as several others at this luncheon, and it was made to perfection and it was delicious....very impressed! I would definitely continue to come to Mosaic Grill for lunch and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others as well!

I was very impressed by Mosaic
I was very impressed by Mosaic at Hyatt Regency hotel. If you are health conscious and want to have light dinner, then this will be a great option for you. Their menu setting was pretty interesting to me because you can choose, main ingredient, method of cooking; olive oil poached, slow roast, pan-fried,what you like for your starch, vegetables, and sauce( Basically you can create your own dish if you like but, there are a few fixed menu as well). I had 4 oz of ling cod, slow roasted with choke puree, roasted ramp with cirtus mustard sauce and it was very refreshing but earthy at the same time. 4oz is not a big portion but, you can also double-up the size. I also like the atmosphere with a big open window overlooking a burrard street.

Location is convenient to our office and the Mosaic is a nice place to go for work get-togethers. Food appeals to everyone.

I went to the restaurant with
I went to the restaurant with a vaneats deal. The service was excellent! They gave a nice, private area and i thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Before i knew it, I was there for over two hours for my dinner with a friend i haven't seen in a long time and they never gave me the pressure to speed up and leave as other restaurants usually do.
The appetizers were great. The salad that i had has a citrusy taste to it and the smoked salmon and avocado that my guest had was good too. The salmon was delicious! The entrees were not as good . The ling cod was a bit bland but the accompanying vegetables were good. The banana split and chocolate cake were great. The banana split was huge! And I now call it the ultimate banana split. It was amazing.

Took my colleague for a birthday lunch and was seated at a lovely table with a view of Burrard Street and the water peeking in the background. Had the salmon on focaccia with garlic fries which was delicious. What surprised me was our waiter, Michael brought out a birthday cake and sang happy birthday to my colleague. He said that he couldn't find a smaller piece, so ended up serving an entire cake instead. Very nice touch.
I would expect a pricey outing, this restaurant being located upstairs of the Hyatt Hotel, but all the prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend Mosaic and will definitely return.

Great service and food!
This was my first time back at Mosaic since it was renovated and I must say, I'm not sure what changed (restaurant space loooks the same), but the food was creatively put together and service was the best that I've had in a while. Our server, Irena, was very attentive and was genuinely interacting with restaurant guests. The food was perfectly cooked and the dessert was very well executed - do not miss out on the chocolate cake! Note that if it says "mini chocolate cake", it is not mini at all. Will be back very soon!

Great food & service!
I am never disappointed when I have lunch at Mosaic at Hyatt in Vancouver. The food & service is excellent & it is never too noisy. Great place to take clients for lunch!
5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service!
Everything was cooked to perfection. We had the Japanese inspired tasting menu, scallops, and steak. Our server made great recommendations and was attentive and courteous. Looking forward to going back again!

Great Breafast Menu
A little pricey but the atmosphere is great for a business meeting.

Gracious service a d good food. Appreciated the inventive salad with locally sourced greens. Delicious main course, though portion was a tad small

"Art of Taste" dining package
Put on by Vaneats.ca, this dining package featured a choice of appie (local seasonal spring salad or warm smoked skuna bay salmon), choice of entree (24 hour braised short ribs or BC ling cod) and a choice of dessert (banana split or Mosaic's signature triple layer chocolate cake). I went with the spring salad, short ribs and the chocolate cake (no decision necessary there!)
The presentation of each dish was impeccable, a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. The salad was fresh and flavourful, the ribs incredibly tender, and the cake...well, the cake was out of this world. Dense, a bit chewy, but yet not overly sweet. Wonderful texture and taste, a great way to finish off the meal.
The service staff were top notch as well.

Great location, great street view.
Never been a big fan of hotel restaurants as many are mediocre. However, having an Entertainment Coupon and hearing good reviews of Mosaic made us decide to go. The restaurant is spacious and centrally located with a great street view of downtown. The service was attentive but relaxed. We enjoyed how the menu was structured to provide a customizable entree based on your own liking. The food was very good, with a mix of very basic to sophisticated flavours. Even though the entrees didn't look very big (we opted for the 4oz of protein), they left us too full to order dessert. The table beside us had the chocolate cake and it looked absolutely decedent. Would definitely recommend and return.

worthy of hometown pride
I'm a frequent Hyatt lodger but had been somewhat embarrassed of my hometown Hyatt due to its age and uninspiring bar/restaurant. Well that's all in the past. The newly renovated Hyatt is a gleaming example of west-coast sustainable chic (check out the digital elevator keypad and minimalist LED floor lamps on the 2nd floor, next to washrooms).
Mosaic has been given a modern face-lift, highlighting floor-to-ceiling windows, unobstructed views of the hipsters on Burrard st - at one point the sun was reflected off 2 buildings onto our window seat, which if you know Vancouver, is a rare treat!
Food was amazingly appetizing & no less pleasing to the eye and service attentive. Impressed and proud to recommend it to locals and visitors alike.

Wonderful Family Dinner Experience
My son and his wife invited us to join them for dinner, their treat, at one of their favourite spots. We had never dined at the Hyatt Mosaic Bar & Grill before. The food and service was exceptional, our server Kerry was very attentive. I have a hearing disability and she made sure I had the best seat in the house. She also made sure our granddaughters were happy too, not just getting them crayons, but explaining the menu to them and making sure their selections were tailored to make them the happiest they could be. Anyone that treats their smallest guests as just as important as the adults at the table rate top marks with me! We had the Grey Cod, Salmon and Steak. You might want to do research on farmed salmon and take it off the menu.

I went here with my boyfriend before a concert. I have eaten at this restaurant in the past and the experience gets better and better. The staff is so friendly, knowledgeable and takes great care of me. The food is absolutely outstanding and so fresh! I had the beef tenderloin for entree, and compliments to the chef on a well prepared, visually appealing and delicious entree!

Great Hotel Restaurant
We ate here almost every day on our week's stay in Vancouver. The food and the staff were just wonderful!

Fabulous food and service!
We had the pleasure of dining at Mosaic - Hyatt Regency Vancouver on Friday night, and we truly had a wonderful experience. Our server (Kerry) was professional but fun (the perfect combination) and did an outstanding job of making sure every guest was happy - and our group consisted of children, laid back individuals, and not so laid back individuals, so not an easy task. We have worked in the industry for years and are particular about both food and service and Mosaic was truly fabulous! Sometimes restaurants within hotels don't get the recognition they deserve, and I am thrilled we chose to have our special dinner at Mosaic. We loved everything about our experience and look forward to visiting you again. Keep up the great work!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our food was fabulous and our waitress was great! My husband and I are Gluten free vegans and we were able to enjoy a delicious meal without any difficulty. The only thing lacking at Mosaic is ambience. It is a very generic, hotel dining room not particularly inviting and really needing to be brought up to todays décor. It seems a shame that on a Saturday night at 7:00 PM we were one of only a handful of tables occupied and so many folks are missing out on some amazing food. It would be well worth your investment to have a designer come in and update the dining room so that you might attract more diners. However, the food was wonderful, service outstanding and we will be back.

Excellent Place with Service & Food
We really enjoyed the place with our friends from Atlanta on the past Sunday. The food is great and innovative for fine dining.
I absolutely love the service, I can feel people working there really enjoy providing the service.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tasty but small portions
I went here with my friends as a goodbye dinner because I was leaving soon for an exchange abroad for 4 months. I'd wanted to try Mosaic for a long time now since it's revamp and I'm glad I did! I went with the Entertainment booklet coupon and I'm also glad I did!
We got the lamb and tenderloin, and although I only had the lamb by friends said the tenderloin was great. I loved my lamb though! So soft, tender, and juicy. The sauces didn't take away from the lamb's natural flavour, but it wasn't too gamey either. I'm just disappointed at the portion size though. But most of us were full anyways at the end since we shared the rich Mosaic chocolate cake after, which was good but not as amazing as I'd expect of a signature cake. Staff were nice!

This was an anniversary celebration and it was an excellent experience. Food was great and service was very knowledgeable and attentive. We would certainly do it again!

Long ago, I frequented the restaurant at the Hyatt Vancouver which is now Mosaic. It was great in the day. So it has literally been years since I've been back. This was my first time to Mosaic. At the recommendation of a fellow guest at a wine dinner last month, I came to try the 5-course Italian tasting menu. The portions were large and each dish was unique and tasty. The added wine pairings were good value and consisted of alternating Italian and BC wines. Service was exceptional that night. I have been talking about it non-stop, would highly recommend it, and definitely will be back.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything is fantastic!!
I celebrated my friend's birthday in this restaurant. The food and services are awesome! They also got very nice view from the window. Most surprisingly is that they gave us a whole chocolate as complementary for my friend's birthday! yes! it's not just a slice of cake it's a whole 4'' chocolate cake!!!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu is different- the diner can create his own plate. The food was hot and delicious. Best lamb ever!!very attentive staff.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second visit in the last two months and it surely is "Twice the fun".
My husband and I ordered two entrées and shared one appetizer this time, so we both have room for two delightful desserts.
The staff there is happy to service and you can feel it. We will definitely come back again.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wish we had a table by the window. We were right by the hussle & bussle of te kitchen.
Otherwise it was good.

Thought for Food
The raspberry lemon cocktail was very popular with my wife who had a lovely lamb dinner. My small steak was very tasty and well presented. We were well taken care of by the servers after a small skirmish to get the table we wanted then had a nice view of Burrard street. The ability to make one's own combination or items was simple and a terrific idea. The sticker shock was bearable as we got good value for the price.

Mosaic at the Hyatt
We had a party of 6 for a breakfast meeting and the setting and service was wonderful. The food was perfect with great menu choices and a very nice buffet option as well. The service was very attentive as we ate and there was no rushing us as we had our discussion. Great place to conduct a business breakfast or lunch the setting allows for clear communication across the table with out too much background noise.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Five Star tasting menu!
We really enjoyed the French Cuisine/ 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing we just had at the Hyatt Regency. It was SUCH a taste treat, fairly priced and our server was wonderful! We would return in a heartbeat the next time we are in Vancouver! Thanks for the unexpected treasure!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mosaic a Colorful Experience
Neil was our server. His wine and food recommendations were excellent, he was attentive and had a fun personality.
The environment lends itself to an intimate dinner in an upscale but not stuffy way. The lighting was dimmed and relaxed. Restaurant connects to a funky bar just down the hall. This is not a place you would think of going out to dinner at a hotel. We live downtown and didn't even know about it. I don't think they do enough to promote to locals but then again they cater to the hotel convention groups. Food is excellent price is moderate overall a great restaurant and staff.

Excellent Cobb Salad!
I always enjoy their Cobb Salad and as usual it was excellent. Service is always good, attentive and very polite.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great meal here and were pleasantly surprised by the contemporary design, unique menu and friendly service. It's in a great location and easily accessible, but tucked away on the 2nd floor of the hotel, making it feel like that much more of a hidden gem. Our server was really attentive and made some delicious recommendations. The menu was really flexible, very reasonably priced and tasted great. I'm looking forward to eating here again soon!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistently good food
Meals were very good as always. The space is tastefully decorated and has a lovely ambiance. Servers and front end managers are very attentive and friendly. However, the timing of the food presentation can tend to be on the slow side . Would definitely recommend.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food and Conversation
Hard to find these days a place with good food, great service and a setting where you can have a conversation without raising your voice, Quiet elegance, great variety of custom made meals and good value.

An excellent lunch
Had a wonderful luncheon with 6 other friends. The service was excellent, and the food delicousl I had the seafood chowder as usual, and it didn't disappoint me. The selections my other friends had was all excellent they told me. The only "negative" to the occasion was the construction noise related to the construction being done on the entranceway to the hotel - lots of drilling noises, jack hammer noises etc.
Otherwise, a most pleasant experience.
