Food was excellent. The bread
Food was excellent. The bread was a little crusty on the edges. Really nice atmosphere being in the airport. Lots of big windows.

Attended the Mother's Day
Attended the Mother's Day Sunday brunch per our family tradition and as usual the Globe delivered a great meal and experience. The price tag is not for those on a tight budget, but if you want a top end experience, you get it here.

Afternoon Tea - A Return Customer
The afternoon tea at the Globe at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport is a nice treat. The mini sandwiches are fresh and tasty while the lemon cranberry scones are the best I've ever had. They pair it up with a beautiful strawberry jam and clotted cream. We were so stuffed that we had to take the desserts home. The "Jetsetter" tea is by far one of the best. This has now been my 5th time for tea at the Globe and I plan to return at least 2 or 3 more times the next few months.

The food was high quality and delicious. We loved the choices of heart-healthy, gluten free, and vegetarian dishes. Plus, we were able to customize dishes to fit our dietary needs. Everything we ordered was seasoned perfectly, and the portions were plentiful. We enjoyed our dinner very much. It is pricey, but well worth it if in the mood for a splurge.

While spending the night at
While spending the night at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport, we dined at the restaurant and, although pricey, the meal was very good. My husband’s fillet was perfectly done and the Béarnaise sauce did not congeal into a gooey mess, as often happens. My mushroom-stuffed ravioli was so good it could convince me to become a vegetarian. Our server was courteous and kept things moving. The wine list was fair with only a few moderately priced choices (this was our experience everywhere in Vancouver...drink beer if possible). All in all, this restaurant did a good job considering it serves a captive audience.

Great Afternoon Tea
This is now the 5th time I've been for tea and it's great. Make sure you ask for their home made jam over the jarred jam.

We arrived into Vancouver on the morning July 7, 2013 and had 3 birthdays to celebrate! We joined the Globe @ YVR Fairmont for breakfast. The service was excellent! They took care of our requests and went out of their way to make our dining experience memorable. Excellent children's menu! Food quality is amazing! Thank you to Krista, Rahel, and Adam for making our milestone birthdays special!

Afternoon Tea - and Gluten Free too
There were 4 of us having tea that afternoon and I was worried about my friend, who is gluten intolerant, and how the gluten would affect her. We asked, and they came through with a fabulous gluten free "tea". She was pleasantly surprised that they were able to accomodate her. My favourite tea: Jetsetter....try it!

Excellent food, nicely presented and great service. Salads were huge. My daughter loved her wild mushroom ravioli and my sablefish had a lovely crisp crust on a delicious bed of lentils. A thoroughly enjoyable dinner. The Maitre 'D and manageress on duty were very friendly and efficient. Definitely worth the trek out to the airport for a meal even if you're not flying or meeting anyone.

Great food, unique vista
It's really neat to sit and watch the airport below you as you dine. The food was very good (albeit pricey) and we enjoyed it quite a bit. They even brought us some blueberries for our 7 month old.

Best airport food ever
We stayed at the Fairmont on a lay-over and the whole place is a gem, including the restaurant. Fresh organic ingredients prepared artfully. My mushroom ravioli with Parmesan foam was the best meal I had in Vancouver all week. Reasonable prices too. Amazing, great view, attentive friendly service.

Food was excellent -- at our table we had the mussels, the duck, the lamb duo. All were fabulous. Service was impeccable. Efficient, friendly, on the ball. The restaurant was spacious, the noise level low. Not many places you can go these days and actually talk to people at your table -- most places you have to shout to be heard, and often you can't hear what others are saying. I love this restaurant. Who would think of going to the restaurant in a hotel airport for food? It's a bit of a trek from home, but well worth it for the food, the service and the ambience.

Very special experience
The restaurant offers unique experience with views of ramps and apron of yvr . The service is excellent and the atmosphere nice and comfortable . The lamb I had was a little too salty. But overall it was a delightful meal.

Great dining experience!
Went to Globe for the 2nd time for a small work dinner. Honestly the only thing that I can say as a "negative", was we waited a bit for a hostess to come seat us, but that didn't even matter...our server was amazing, I wish I had gotten her name as she deserves recognition for her job! She was so helpful from choosing the wine, offering tastings, and helping pair with dinner...the whole nine she was great! She was probably in her mid 30s, greyish/brown glasses, fairly tall, thin and a great smile...if that helps please give her a pat on the back for me!! We were a party of 5 in on Friday November 29 8:15pm reservation.

Just as we wished.
Perfect for the occasion, any one that is, well done folks.
