This was the second for brunch
This was the second for brunch and the first experience was better.We made a reservation for 2. When we arrived we requested a window seat. There was one for 4 available all through our meal.We were taken to one at the banquette seating side. We found the table for two small and the seat very upright. We were also next to a family party that was not very relaxing but great for them to have a place to sit together with young children.
Had crab cakes the same as before but found them to be a little too crispy this time.
Service was great and I don't want to sound picky but you gave me this opportunity. I would definitely come again but be more insistent on my seating next time.Previously we sat at cirular table in the middle that was great.

A very pleasant dinner.
Quite an elegant restaurant, bright and modern. The location is excellent but the view is non existent. The food met our expectations, well presented and prompt service.
Can not comment on the beverage choises, as we are (very) light drinkers.
Didn't like the steak knives as they were heavy and cumbersome.
Also didn't appreciate the parking charge, which was added directly into our dinner fare (so we had to pay tax on it and pay the server a percentile tip on it!).

Fab Northshore Gem!!!
Great to enjoy a place where we consistently enjoy amazing food and fantastic service. This is a relaxed place where you never feel rushed and the service team provide personable service. The Chef here is amazing and provide outstanding food at surprisingly affordable prices. A great variety of menu items and always some extra add-on options for those special occasions. A great place for all occasions and Alina was fantastic and paid great attention to details.

I have been a regular at this restaurant for approximately two years. I love their gluten free menu. And the Cobb salad. I have found it the best in Vancouver

Good for my Grandma and good for me
The service is excellent and the menu offers lots of variety for all ages. We went on a night with a set menu which is pricey for Mother's Day but my mom and gran felt it was special. Would save it for a special occasion or a night when you can splurge.

There was some construction going on in the hotel and that is why I have marked the noise level accordingly. Once the construction is complete it won't be an issue.

Always a winner
Dining here is always a pleasure and looking forward to the launch of the renovated space which will allow more seating and a new bar right next to the lounge instead of in the restaurant. The food and service is consistently outstanding!!!

Undergoing construction at the moment, so somewhat empty and a little noisy. Otherwise food and service was great.

Great for a business lunch.
I took a client here for lunch. Being from Vancouver she found some difficulty finding the place, but once we settled down it was a very enjoyable experience. It was ideal for a business lunch.

The table d'hote menu is both affordable and one which offers excellent choices. An excellent value for the price charged.

Great location, great food, great service! We shared a flatbread pizza for an appetizer and it was delicious - and a generous portion. Had the Lobby Cobb Salad for my entree and was not disappointed. Generous portion, great flavour and high-quality ingredients. There was live music while we dined which was fun and enjoyable, without being disruptive to our conversation. Will definitely be back!

It is usually difficult to find a restaurant for special occasions, like Father's Day, that caters to young children. The staff at this restaurant were patient and friendly to our children. Their meals arrived quickly and crayons and activity place mats were provided which kept them busy. My husband and I enjoyed the brunch as well.

This was my first time at The Lobby. Went for a friend's 40th birthday. While a bit loud, the food and service was good. Would definitely go back.

We were looking for a local restaurant to celebrate our out of town guests anniversary. It was pasta Tuesdays and although the menu was good most had seafood pasta which was delicious with just the right spiciness. the spinach salad was the best salad I have ever had! The service was professional & attentive. No view but close the waterfront.

Service and Food were great
Went for breakfast with our breakfast package from the hotel. Made reservations online easily, had a wonderful breakfast with eggs Benedict, salmon, spinach and Feta. Our server, Anton I think his name was? Was amazing and very forgiving when I had misunderstood the menu and had ordered the wrong thing. (regular eggs benedict) I was in a hurry to get to a class for work and I made it on time. I tipped the server even though I was told gratuity was included, it was that good!

We had a wonderful time with our friends from out of town. The food and service was superb. We will definitely be coming back.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good and the portions were very generous. Value-to-money would probably make me bump Food Quality up by a star. The service we had was some of the best in the city - friendly, knowledgable and extremely helpful without being overbearing. We'll definitely come here again!

I started with the scallops in white sauce - superb and a huge serving. For many people this would be enough for an entree. My only suggestion would be fresh bread rather than garlic toast as an accompaniement. The garlic toast is almost too strong of a flavour with a light white sauce. The beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and carnivore that I am [and as good as the beef was!] the potatoes were even better. OMG - I could have eaten a plate of them! T had the artic char preceded by a green salad, both of which she raved about. Her 3-course meal came with creme brule which we shared as dessert. A very fine, slow-paced meal for our anniversary celebration.

We went to the Lobby Restaurant
We went to the Lobby Restaurant for my husband's birthday. The ambience is very nice, service was excellent and the food was well presented and tasty. The fish I orderred was done to perfection as was my husband's steak (and he is fussy about his steak). We thought the look of the restaurant was perfect, featuring an upscale, chic, modern look without looking cold and stark. The price was reasonable for a restaurant of this calibre. I enthusiastically recommend the Lobby.

The service we received from Andre was impeccable. He made suggestions that we took and proved his intimate knowledge of the menu and wine selections. The mussels in white sauce were fresh and absolutely the best mussels we had while in British Columbia. The wine selection was broad and included many local wines that we would not normally get to try. Burrowing owl wines Cab Franc 2010 was the perfect pairing for out meal. Halibut with a mango curry sauce was simply the most moist succulent fish I've ever consumed. Highlights of this meal were the garlic bread crostini served with the mussels, and desserts! I highly recommend this restaurant whether you are staying at the Pinnacle hotel or not.

The food here was excellent.
The food here was excellent. I had the halibut entree and my partner had the black cod. Both were perfection! The Sangria was ok but it contained too much mix; I would not recommend it. We sent both back and ordered wine instead.
I gave ambience a Fair rating because given it's on the waterfront, the restaurant was designed with no view. Being a local and given its location, I expected a view. Instead it has large beautiful windows overlooking an old shipyard warehouse and cranes. The architect would have served the restaurant better by putting it on a higher floor to take advantage of North Vancouver's waterfront view of downtown Vancouver. In my opinion, and obvious error or oversight.

The food was good, tasty and
The food was good, tasty and hot and overall, fairly priced. My only criticism would be our waiter who did an efficient job but was not as friendly and genuinely engaging as he could or should be. I recommend the restaurant often as I like the single price menu as an option and the range of items on the menu from basic and affordable to more gourmet and expensive. Keep the wine list reasonable and I will continue to come back.

First time at this restaurant - very pleased, especially with the service. Attentive without being intrusive. Presentation of menu items added to the meal.

Took a friend there for her birthday lunch. She was impressed. Love the food, just enough of a variety to order off the menu. And when the food came, it was delicious.

This our Birthday Brunch Celebration go to spot! Good selection of Brunch items and Friendly staff.

Great food & service but too noisy
This is a super restaurant in a great location. Our server was exceptional and attentive. The scallops were fantastic!
The only down side, as with most restaurants, was it was too noisy. Would go again though.

It's a great place for lunch
It's a great place for lunch because the menu selection, food quality and service are always great! The location is central adn parking is easy. I also appreciate that even when it rains, the restaurant is bright.
I also have enjoyed dinners there, but it tends to be my 'go to' place for lunch.

We've been looking for the perfect Sunday brunch place since moving to North Vancouver and I think we've found it! We'll definitely be back.

A Real Gem
Originally went to this restaurant by mistake and was so glad we did. Although the large windows,don't really have a view worth looking at, the food is spectacular. The rack,of lamb and the pork were supurbly done with a very flavourful glaze. The service was prompt, friendly and discreet. Now one of our favourites and we,have been back three times.
