Being a lover of appies, the 10 course tasting menu is heaven for me. The food at C is truly inspirational and the waiters (although a little distant at first) were hugely knowledgeable, accommodating and helpful. The decor is not to my taste and feels a little sterile,but the ambiance is good. Altogether this was a great evening and well worth the trek across the bridge!

The food is interesting and
The food is interesting and of the highest quality. The plates are complex with many different and interesting flavors. I enjoy the Chef tasting menu and the cocktail match up menu.
We will be back.

Beautiful Setting.... Great Food.
Dinner was wonderful. We had the tasting menu, and the chef accommodated our " fish only" diet request . Thie food portions were not your typical "tasting " sizes..... They were very generous and beautifully prepared. Our server was so friendly and attentive ( I'm embarrassed that I cannot remember her name) I would highly recommend C for a special occasion, or even an after work drink and apps....

Mature children friendly for sure!
Perfect for romantic dinners and special occasions but also good for well-behaved children! My daughter and I had a fantastic dinner here, it was her first 'fancy dinner out'. The staff were so great with her! The seafood delicious, especially the fresh oysters, sablefish, and the 'C sticks'. Love that they subscribe to the Oceanwise program, so important to have sustainable fisheries here in BC, and everywhere for that matter! 5 stars all round!

Gem of a place
A gem of a place ! Have been there a few times and especially on a sunny day the view and ambience is amazing. Friendly service and the food is great and well presented. The pea/ mint soup was delicious! I would recommend this place to all my friends.

Great Mothers Day Brunch
Engaged, attentive service without being overbearing. Traditional brunch menu with unique and delicious creative twists. C is never disappointing.

I am from Brazil and the C Restaurant was recommended to me by a friend of mine who lived in Vancouver for many years. I could not imagine how nice the C was: excellent food, good wines, and an unforgettable scenic view. No doubt, I will come back to C my next time in Vancouver.

Amazing As Always
You can't go wrong with dining out at C. This time, I had the 10-course tasting menu and every dish was beautiful and divine. Not only that, but the cocktails were well-crafted, and the service was very attentive. There was mouth-watering flavor in every bite. Looking forward to the next time!

i went there with my boyfriend
i went there with my boyfriend that night. I specifically asked for a window seat because my boyfriend likes the window seat. However, they disappointed us. I saw there is a table at the window that is empty. I assumed that is the table I reserved. However, they told me that is not our table we have to wait for another 10-15min for the customers in a smaller table to finish their dessert. I actually didnt really mind that because we did arrive early. We did end up with a window seat, but with all the bushes and plants blocking the outside view. Whats the point of sitting at the window seat then! Also, Im not satisfied with our waiter either. He is always at other tables doing other stuff and didnt bother to ask us for anything.

C Restaurant 28 May 2013
We really enjoyed our meal here. The staff could not have been friendlier and the quality of the food was terrific. Would definitely come again!
5/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yes, it is on the expensive side, but it will not disappoint. Outstanding in every area! One of the best restaurants I have ever visited.

New Chef Fantastic Food!
Hadn't been to C for at least a year and had always enjoyed the food in the past but WOW. We were told that a new chef had started two weeks ago. Everything we had was amazing - the tastes all worked extremely well together whether it was the lobster poutine or the sable fish with beef cheek or peel and eat spot prawns. Impressive. We'll be back again soon.

This is the place to have the Gridiron Steak for brunch. It is a mouthwatering work of art.
The pancakes with lemon curd or the brioche with topping og the season and creme fraiche are great to share as dessert.
Staff are personable and if the weather is cooperative, the waterfront patio is hard to beat.

An enjoyable evening
Very good food; excellent service; comfortable ambience; unhurried; third visit - standard maintained. Parking is a wee bit of a problem - check this out before you arrive.

Really enjoyed the salmon tasting menu. Service was excellent - just the right amount of inter action and friendliness.
Will be back.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing view, decent food
It's worth coming here for the excellent water view and the ambiance. The servers are OK, albeit a little stiff. The food was good but could have been a little more flavourful. All in all, I'll probably be back but there is a little room for improvement.

Fabulous Dining in a fabulous City
Everything was perfect for a perfect day. Service was impeccable, meal was outstanding, scenery was breathtaking!

What about the birthday?
I indicated in my reservation that it was my daughter's 50th birthday. Nothing special was done. They could have put a candle on the dessert. The wine prices are too high for their selection. Not enough Italian white wines.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, missed on service
I have been to C a handful of times in the past and always had a great experience. On our brunch date this past Sunday the service was certainly lacking. It took ages for anyone to come to our table in the first place, there were long pauses between courses, and in the end our 4 course brunch took 1hr 45 mins. A little longer than we were expecting.
The food was outstanding, as was the view, so we would be back, but there was something going on with the service. Hopefully it was a one off.

A Hidden Gem
A great menu in a lovely relaxed scenic location. Had dinner outdoors. Had a knowledgable waiter.

C for the Sea's Best
We always save C Restaurant for our special farewell dinner when we visit Vancouver every August. There is something magical about sitting gazing out across False Creek at Granville Island while dining on superb seafood and sipping excellent wines. The service is attentive but discreet, and the tasting menu is a creative salute to Pacific Northwest cuisine. A great place to celebrate--even if it's your last night in BC paradise.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tried C restaurant for the first time a few nights ago and loved it. The food was fresh, creatively prepared and delicious. We tried the Lobster bisque, hallibut, seared scallops, beet salad and cheesecake.and all were superb. Attentive but not instrusive service. Would highly recommend and will be returning on our next visit to Vancouver.

Table with a view
Crestaurant is well known and praised in guides so we were surprised that the terrace was not completely occupied. Of course it was a sunday evening, but still... The food was very good, the service good but could still be improved, the wine list is very attractive.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic and fun
I was there to entertain two business guests from Australia. They were blown away, we all had a great time. The waiter was perfectly attentive and easily able to anticipate our needs and take care of them instantly. We were all very impressed. Needless to say the food was impeccable.

Excellent dining experience
Excellent dining experience but the ambiance needs freshening and cleaning.
9/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Beautifully presented dishes, creative and great value. Had the lobster which was somewhat chewy but pleasing taste. Good range of wines. The best point about this restaurant is the location opposite Granville Island. This is a restaurant definitely worth returning to.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great. Had a lovely time with friends. Great wine, great food, great after dinner cocktails. The goat "cheesecake" dessert was outstanding. Very attentive service.

Perfect vanouver water front dining
excellent service. seafood dishes are top notch . our favorite sunday afternoon outdoor restaurant with excellent ambience and water views.lovely in the winter ,cosy sophisticated décor.
9/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
The architecture of the interior makes for quite a noisy dinner. We sat outside and was nice there. The wine list was limiting by the glass.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good deal for brekkie
For $1-$3 more than white spot brunch we got so much more. What a value!

found a decent restaurant in van
I had one splurge night on a recent trip and found C. It's a pleasant designery space with odd ineffective lighting. There's an outdoor seating zone but too cold for me that night. Food: how can you not like foie gras, lobster bisque, and duck breast? The foie was parsimonious in portion, served atop toast, with roasted bananas on the side (smacks a little of cheap). Bisque was hearty but not the most full in flavor. Duck breast delicious but became a bit gray after a while, maybe could have been cooked just a tad less. The swiss chard and English peas with it kind of clashed - perhaps one or the other would be better (I'd vote for the chard). Could have used a little more salt all around. Drinks great, service attentive and generous.

C Restaurant is a gem of a
C Restaurant is a gem of a place - amazing location and food to match! With the many great places to eat in Vancouver, finding a place with great food, friendly but not intrusive service and an incredible view is a delight. Walking the seawall on the north side of False Creek, you come around the corner under the Granville Street Bridge and see a patio with one of the best views! A small group of friends joined for a birthday celebration - on one of Vancouver's great sunny fall days! The sablefish was exquisite, and the desserts we shared all incredible - and thankfully, small servings offering mouth-watering pleasure! Even though I am about to leave Vancouver for Europe, I will be back next summer, and look forward to annother meal at C!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service and food
The appetizers and main courses were absolutely delicious. We both had the sablefish which was one of the best I have ever had and the waiter had an excellent knowledge of the best pairing to go with each course. Definitely a place to return to.

Wonderful Longstanding Restaurant
The food was delicious, fresh, and beautiful. I had the duck while the others at my table tried the mussels, salmon, and sable fish. The duck was not as fatty as duck usually is, but was still succulent with a perfect crispy skin, lovely wilted chard, perfectly al dente asparagus, and divine little gnocci, which had been slightly pan-fried - which I love.
They changed the menu up as things were either in or out of stock, keeping everything fresh. Rather than simply striking certain things from the menu, they opted for culinary substitutions, which I think is the mark of a good chef in a good restaurant.

Dinner for 3
The staff at "C Restaurant" are always very polite. I have been here many times. The food is presented beautifully and the waterfront views are wonderful. They're slow to get food out, but everything always tastes great. Lovely place for a special occasion.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great place, I'd recommend to frnds
When there on last wednesday to celebrate an anniversary with my gf.
great service, although the server did not explain some of the dish we had.
- extensive wine list
- the price is pretty high just like any other top-tier restaurants
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the first, everything was perfect - the greeting, the food, the waitress, the view, the duration between courses. A place for people with refined tastes looking for quality rather than quantity. Food was exquisitely presented, had deep, amazing tastes and overall provided an excellent evening.
