    Good place for lunch for anyone in North Vancouver. Food and service was very good but were disappointed in view. We expected to see view of water and downtown area but windows overlooked shipyards instead!! Convenient underground hotel parking, especially when raining!

    I was told that lunch starts at 2 when the brunch finished. Turns out brunch was served till 3 which ended up OK, but I thought my Dad would have wanted seafood from the lunch menu. . Waiter took about 10 minutes to bring a menu and greet us. I didn't want to make a fuss but it was embarrassing as I was the organizer. The noise level was high. Not sure why but it felt like being in a cafeteria. The chair cushions were frayed, all of them. View was of the parking lot. Food was fine. Nicely presented and generous. Not a great starter menu, but it was brunch. Was overcharged for one item and it was solved, but again, it takes away from the experience to have to complain. Won't bother going back, even though I live close by.

    Complimentary parking offered - nice. If you love a jovial ambience, being able to tell a joke and laugh out loud, then this is the place. I had the steelhead salmon and it was fantastic; the other members of our group had other dishes that were healthy, very tasty, and nicely done winter veggies are included. Service was very good the entire evening! BUT if you are looking for a spectacular view, then this is not the place. The Lobby has everything to offer except a view. Other than that, all was a great fun evening!

    Salad was good but did not come with a salad fork, and the dinner fork I used left with the empty salad plate.. I saw pacific cod was used for the fish and chips on the menu; this is a recent substitute name for Hake, a scrap fish, that I would not think of eating myself, although it is nowadays used extensively. I believe better wines could be offered on the list, than were, and at the same price The scotch whisky list had many well known brands that were of better quality previously, than nowadays.

  • Disappointing Afternoon Tea
    Carol
    Dined on 12/8/2013
    I am a vegetarian so I asked for vegetarian sandwiches, I got a cucumber bite on a very "hard" bun, actually unedible. I got a cream cheese and sundried tomato wrap (bite size) - then I got an avacado topped crustini (the best bite of the lot) and lastly a boccini/tomato bite. My friend had a variety of ham/cheese, smoked salmon cream cheese and turkey bite size sandwiches. We both commented that there needed to be more "savory" snacks than sweets. I enjoyed the scone with cream and jam - but otherwise I would have to say for the $26.95 price tag, it fell short of afternoon teas I have experienced elsewhere so niether of us would come back for the tea service. We will definitely be back for brunch or lunch - it never disappoints. Thank you.

    My wife and I chose this over going downtown for a date night and dinner out. Both of our meals were excellent and very reasonably priced. We did the wine pairing and three courses. My wife had the ahi tuna and it was done perfectly. I had the quinoa salad and it was great and nicely portioned. For mains we had the duck and black cod. Again, both very tasty and well portioned. Finally we had creme brulee. All with very nice wine pairings. Service was very good throughout and we had an entirely enjoyable night in a neighbourhood gem. We will be back.

    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.

    The only complaint was that the service was very slow. I was there with a group of women so luckily we were not in a hurry. However, it did take quite a while to receive our food. The food was very good and the atmosphere was also good. You also changed the channel to the hockey game when i asked so that too was good.

    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.

    There needs to be some soft surfaces, ie carpeting, drapery, dividers, etc. to absorb the noise level. Everything seemed to reverberate off the hard surfaces of the floor, etc. I don't mind a certain amount of noise as it does add to the ambience of a restaurant, but this was not enjoyable. I think you really should consider a re-design of the area. It really did feel like we were in a lobby of a hotel and not a particularly comfortable one.

    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.

    We had a generous gift certificate for a dinner at the Pinnacle. We had heard that the food was good but were dismayed when we arrived to find that there was no separate area for diners away from the many people having pre-wedding banquet drinks and a large birthday celebration. The noise level was so high that we were unable to converse effectively or hear our waitress. She was excellent - attentive without being overbearing. We were very disappointed with this special evening out because of the noise. It seems to me this is a fixable problem.

    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.

    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.

    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!
