We (a small group from work) had a Christmas lunch at EBO. It was a buffet style lunch and it was all very good! Will definitely go back anytime I feel like a quick lunch with a variety of things to chose from.

Nice Neighborhood Find
We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival both with the atmosphere and the menu. Although not extensive, the entrees were more continental in nature than we anticipated. The EBO special-appy, entree and dessert for $45 was a great way to 'have it all' I liked the use of local ingredients - Abbotsford goat cheese in the beet salad and also the sablefish was excellent! Would go back as it is close by without having to go into town for a downtown experience. The private rooms would be great for groups.

Great for Brunch!
Great food for reasonable price, especially during Easter Sunday Brunch! Lots of selection of breakfast and lunch foods and very tasty! Restaurant was very accommodating as we had 2 infants in our party. All the staff were very friendly and attentive :)

Jackpot of dining at Ebo
Greeted promptly and were offered our table earlier than our reservation. Excellent wait staff who were very accommodating with a Gluten Free menu and even offering gluten free bread for me and regular for my husband. Leisurely dining experience with plush seating and chic designing. Food was cooked perfectly, good portions and a superior wine list.

Very nice restaurant inside
Very nice restaurant inside hotel and next to casino. We had great service from start to finish. The food was well presented, very tasty and decent portion sizes. I had the seared tuna, grilled lamb and creme brule and they were all delicious. All is time, I thought it was a japanese restaurant

Good Food, Great Service
Very attentive service, helpful (catered to our food allergies and sensitivities), food is done well, appreciated the availability of kids's menu and the wonderful complimentary chocolate truffles at the end of the meal to celebrate our special occasion.

Great service !
I had a wonderful Mother's day Brunch at EBO. My mother and I have nut and gluten allergies so we called ahead and made sure there would be enough options for us at the $45 price point. Not only did the food taste great the Chef came out personally and went through all the items on the buffet to ensure what we could and could not have. If the item had gluten or nuts he personally went to his kitchen and made us our own portion based on our needs so we would not miss out on anything. I was very impressed with the attention to this very simple detail that means so much to a person. Also the host went to every table and made sure every mother received a rose stem which had personal messages hand written on them. A wonderful touch!

Best Mushroom soup ever!
Great food, convenient location if you are also going the casino.
The food was on par with most great restaurants around Vancouver, and the wild mushroom soup was absolutely the best I've ever had - would go back just for that.
Wine list was disappointing, while I applaud restaurants having reasonably priced bottles on the menu they should also have a selection of at least a few finer wines.
If you have a slightly larger group the semi-private curtained tables at the back are very cool.

Great food, service was average but really great scene for a business lunch. Mushroom soup was amazing!

Very beautiful trendy restaurant
I loved the ambiance and decor of this restaurant...it reminded me of my visits to a fancy Las Vegas hotel. Beautiful hotel/casino/restaurant. A very luxurious and stylish restaurant and the food, wine, and service were excellent!

Our new go-to
This place is posh but not pretentious. Fit for gourmets and quiet groups (there are even tented tables in the back). Exceptional and personal service.
The food is delicious and you don't have to go out for dinner afterwards (this happened to us elsewhere). Presentation (creative plating, balanced flavours) and quality (free range, organic items, sustainable seafood) = serious value
Drinks could be a bit fancier but were fresh and lipsmacking delicious (I regret not having seen the sangria). People who buy $20 bottles of wine (like me) will recognize many good ones. For the rest of you, no corkage fees Sun or Mon. They have craft beer.
5 out of 5 for E.B.O. Really nice place. We'll be back for sure.

Ebo for everybody!
Everybody should treat themselves to Ebo! Went here to catchup with friends and we had such a wonderful experience. My friends are quite finicky eaters and they actually had no complaints whatsoever from the bread basket, appy, main course and dessert, we loved them all. I has the seafood linguini and their noodles was mixed with squid ink for colour purposes but no odd taste at all, made for a great combination with seafood in my pasta. My boyfriend had their angus steak and it was perfection, so were my friends halibut and salmon dishes. For dessert, I had their white chocolate cheesecake with basil and it was scrumptious! The basil was a wonderful and surprising addition! The service was beyond exceptional as well! All good things!

Never disappointed at E.B.O.
This is our third time at E.B.O. and we've yet to have anything but a fabulous experience there. Our waiter and chef remembered us from last time (nice!) and were very friendly and courteous, clearly appreciating our return business. The food here is truly delicious. While the portions always look small on those giant plates (what is with that strange custom?), we always leave absolutely stuffed.
The "Taste of E.B.O." feature (appetizer, main, dessert) for $45 is a great value. The dessert is the reason we came back last time and they never cease to delight. They're always fun, delicious and extremely creative. The drinks, on the other hand, could stand a bit of presentation (and volume) for the price but they're very well prepared.

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to EBO, we loved it the first time and were slightly worried that it would not live up to our expectations. EBO wowed us again. The food is exceptional, by far the best meal I have ever had. The chief's are amazing and the food is high quality. Prices are on the higher end but for the portions and quality of the food its worth it. We celebrated a birthday at this visit and were pleasantly surprised with a dessert sample plate. Loved the added touch of the truffle lollipops with the bill. Only slight complaint would be that the service was a little slow at times but was nice to have the added time to digest between courses. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family and will be back soon!

The restaurant has a good
The restaurant has a good selection of options for each course, two options for vegetarians which is great, and they also have gluten free options. Food is very tasty.

Don't use the menu
Executive Chef Dan Craig and his team are gastronomic magicians. For a really amazing food experience simply book a day ahead and tell them how many for dinner. I love leaving it completely up to them with only food allergies as limitations. I have done this on three very special occasions with EBO and have been completely blown away each time.
Give it a try - you will never forget it.

Server was terrific
The food was very good and the service was outstanding. The servers were attentive and friendly but not pushy. The food arrived in a timely manner and the table was cleared without a wait. I had the seafood pasta, which was very creamy with lots of varieties of seafood. My husband had the steak, which was cooked just to his liking. The wine was reasonably priced. We would go again.

Nice place, reasonable price,
Nice place, reasonable price, and good food. Fantastic service, I would said it is much better than the G restaurant on Seymour St.
They are not pushy at all, and the food arrived in the right time with couple minutes in between for you to relax and enjoy the moment.

We had a great dinner at EBO
We had a great dinner at EBO Restaurant. The food, the atmosphere, and the service was superb.
I highly recommend the rib-eye steak, wild mushroom soup, roast scallop, bacon risotto, rack of lamb, and coconut mousse.
This restaurant looks great - definitely one of the best decors in town. The tables are spaced far apart so there is lots of privacy. The private party rooms look like great places to celebrate.
The staff are very friendly and capable.
We will be going back...SOON.

I'm glad the Vancouver Sun
I'm glad the Vancouver Sun did a 4.5 star review on EBO - I've worked in the area for years and years and was a regular at the old Villa Hotel - but did not realize EBO has been in the Delta Hotel for 5 years. The review is what brought us in for my Mom's Birthday and we had a wonderful meal. My 86 year old Mother said it was the best salmon she has had in a restaurant...my Lamb was the best I've ever had (although they could have added a little more on the plate)...the Organic chicken was delicious, the mushroom soup devine, the Crab surprise (forgot the name) for the appy was off the wall interesting and very good. The desserts weren't as well liked except the chocolate sphere but overall GREAT food and service!

Own wine and dine
A great bottle of wine we had been saving and the free corkage offered on Sunday sealed the deal for our choice of an anniversary dining experience at EBO. The $45 three course were a great value. Both the halibut and the lamb entrees were superbly cooked and garnished. I think EBO managed to find the right balance of quantity, quality and visual presentation that left us feeling gratified, yet still curious about, and eager for, the next course. The chocolate sphere and the cheesecake were our desert choices. Both were delicious and with enough other elements on the plate to encourage taste swapping and conversation. A table visit by the prideful chef of the evening left us with warm feelings about the service and experience in total.

Great Food and Service
It's like... fine dining with a neighbourhood gem price. The chef definitely plays with his food. Plates come out like a piece of art and everything is delicious. I've been to Ebo before for lunch and brunch. First for dinner and it definitely did not disappoint.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful restaurant, food is very good. Had the 45$ set dinner with your pick of the three dishes. Found out there's Sunday and Monday BYOB no corkage fee. Definitely going back and bring our own bottle of wine.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a sure thing
We love the privacy and personal attention we get every time we dine at EBO. The food is meticulously prepared and served, with a focus on locally sourced, ethical choices (free range chicken, line-caught BC fish, hand-raised pork) and the value is exceptional. Best of all, you can enjoy a gourmet meal without having to go out for dinner afterwards. I can't say enough good things about this place!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
beyond ordinary indeed
But for the music - apparently controlled by the casino, often too loud and inappropriate, diminishing from romantic atmosphere, not conducive to conversation - inconsistent with the otherwise perfect ambiance set by the decor, and creativity and passion of the chefs. This alone takes rating from excellent to very good, on par with some of the best restaurants around the world, at 1/4 of the price! (Don't tell ebo!)

Sunday family brunch
My husband and I met my mother in law, sister in law and 2 nephews, aged 9 and 3, for Sunday brunch. We had a perfect location in the restraunt, a round table nicely separated from others. We spent over 2 hours there because the little one had space to play on the floor and not be in anyones way. When the kids are happy, so is everyone else.
Our server was lovely and quite attentive to all but made sure kids were taken care of first. The food was great, and service even topped that.
This was my 4th or 5th time here, with different groups and we will defenetly be back.

Ebo has perhaps the best ambiance of any restaurant in the city. It is suitably dark, but still bright enough so one can read the menu and see the classy decor. The tables are spaced far away from one another and are separated by sheer curtains to make the atmosphere more intimate. It is equally perfect for a romantic meal, a large festive meal (there are several party rooms), or a business dinner.
The food ia just as good as the atmosphere. All the items we tried were terrific: wild mushroom soup, BC chowder, salmon, rib-eye steak, rack of lamb, and seasonal risotto. The roast scallops is the best dish of them all.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
I celebrated my birthday with my fiance and another couple. The ambiance was great. The food was perfect and the desert the brought me was outstanding! A combination of eggnog cheesecake, chocolate-raspberry cheesecake and carrot cake served on a dinner plate with fruit and coulis. It was enough for all four of us with leftovers.
