Diner Reviews
  • "I booked the sawmill for my wife's birthday dinner. The food was very good, the waitress was slow to serve us though. But I would go back again for dinner or even brunch. It wasn't that busy that night, so they got us in a bit earlier then out reservation was for so that was a plus for us."

  • "We have been there approx. 4 times. The last time included a guest. We were all very satisfied with the servers and with the food. It is always top notch. Would recommend this place to anyone."

  • "For the prices the Sawmill charges VERY disappointed in the food. Out of 5 people, only one truly enjoyed there dish. The chef enjoys his salt way too much, French onion soup is a good example of that, so salty I couldn't finish it, the spaghetti not great, prices are too high to the point that two people had appetizers for their meal. Yes it's a steak house but there are some of us who are married to steak lovers who don't eat meat. The fish dish selections sucks. The drinks, first time I have ordered a drink and it came in a short glass. Beer, can't have a jug in the dinning area, told pint was 20 oz, menu says 16, WOW!!! Last time we dine at the Sawmill. I would pick Ricky's over this place, great food and YOU DO GET YOUR MONEYS WORTH."

  • "The quality of food has gone down since opening. The Caesar salad was overdressed. My husbands medium well steak came out medium rare, and my medium prime rib came out half medium and half blue. I sent the prime rib back. After dinner, both of us felt ill. We will not be back for a while."

  • "We went for the Sunday Brunch which is usually great, but this time I found the food not up to the usual standards. I had waffles which were a little chewy and the fruit topping was frozen and not fresh fruit which was mushy and the whip cream was way too thick. It was more like butter than cream. The roast beef and ham as usual were excellent. The bacon was too crispy. The Eggs Benedict were good ,but the hollandaise sauce was too strong, it needs to be lighter to compliment the eggs and English muffin. Desserts were excellent and the selection was very good along with the salad bar. Service is always good and never had to look for our waiter."

  • "the food was super! However we had to wait 25 minutes before our order was taken. Our buns arrived after the starter salad. I requested a booth online with reservation but our table was not ready we were on time. What is the point of requests? We did not enjoy seated beside the service stand."

  • "We were on our way to Cavalia, put in our reservation notes that we wanted to pre order wine and appetizers. Everything was on the table when we arrived. We were in and out within an hour with drinks, appys, and primerib dinner entrees! Thank-you Sawmill for a great evening. Look forward to spending more time on our next visit. Beautiful restaurant."

  • "Had bad service from the moment we got there to making our reservation bigger with two more people they made such an issue about it and the place wasn't busy!!! when we finally got our table our waitress was rude and didn't seem happy to be serving us. The food was good but I don't think we will be going back."

  • "Our family visited the Capilano Sawmill for my mom's birthday and what a disappointment. We were a table of seven divided between two tables and had to ask if we could put our tables together. The steaks had absolutely no flavor and mine was on the cold side for medium rare. Caesar salad ordered as an appetizer was served with the meal and had too much dressing. Our whole party felt the experience was lacking and will not be returning."

  • "Our party were disappointed in the outdated promises of the website. Steak dish did not provide mixed vegetables but only peppers. Salad bar no longer available at the Capilano location even though the website boasts about the renowned salad bar as you enter the restaurant."

  • "Had the table d'hôte on Father's Day and will not be returning. On the plus side, the ceaser salad was huge (if not super tasty) and my lobster tail was very good but that's where the good ended. The shrimps were very over-cooked and lacked any real taste whatsoever. I ordered my steak medium, which it was - sort of. The top half was beautiful and pink, but the bottom half was well done and totally without juice or taste. I'm not sure if the cook forgot about it, but a half-and-half steak is not what I am looking for from an upscale restaurant. This was the second time we tried the table d'hôte and both times we were less than impressed. All in all, for $99.95 I am looking for a good, if not great, meal."

  • "I was disappointed with the lack of service. Our server did not drop of our meal. As well as he did not come back to see if we were happy with our good ( one of us was not happy). We sat for about 30 min after me and the other guest had finished eating. I have been to this location before and had great service. There is no excise for this last time as it was weeknight and the restaurant was not busy . "

  • "Made reservations for mothers day. When we arrived and inquired the attendant said "Oh yeah here it is - they left you a message but you didn't call back to confirm. - I'll see if I can get you in!" Really? Since when? Waited 15 minutes for our table. Our food took well over an hour to arrive and was barely hot. The Escargot was full of sand, which we mentioned, but it was left on our bill. No second bread basket was offered while we waited and waited for our food to arrive. Also, make sure to have plenty of appetizers, as the meals are usually not enough to fill you up."

  • "This is a nice restaurant with a relaxing feel. It is quiet so you can actually have a conversation. We all enjoyed the delicious food. The portion sizes were very generous. It was extremely busy and service was very slow. Overall we enjoyed our experience. "

  • "Went for Mother's Day brunch with a group of six with a 1:30 reservation. Food was hot and fresh even though brunch is only served until 2:00. We had great service. Only down side was being seated in the bar near the blender and the patio door. "

  • " Mother's day brunch at Sawmill Capilano.Our service was impeccable Kelly doesn't miss a beat :), the food however, left something to be desired. While the selection was abundant, Eggs benedict in particular was soggy and 'off tasting' and the pasta near the omelet station tasted burned throughout.Temperatures need to be revisited.Carving Station prime rib was top notch and the short ribs were fantastic! Could have used mashed potatoes though.Dessert selection was much to our amazement, however, none of the desserts we tried were spectacular in freshness and overall quality.We will return to the Sawmill again, but are hopeful that they will make some improvements to the overall quality of their buffet service.It used to be one of the best."

  • "I was a little disappointed. There were too many people at one time. The booth we were in was small, and the food area was always packed with people, very disorganized. Toward the end, staff were obviously tired, one gal to the point of being rude. As for the food, well some of it was ok. The only really great part was the fresh fruit, it was good. The ham was good, but really only salad to go with it. I didn't have an omelet as their were too many people waiting. I don't think I would come again for brunch. Maybe an odd evening if it were a quiet night. Would not recommend the brunch."

  • "We chose the Capilano Sawmill for location, and of course the famous Sesame sauce. The group included 11 gentlemen, most of whom commented on the very nice portions - Salmon & Beet salad, the prime rib (Lenwich) sandwich and the taco salad. I had to have a steak sandwich to properly enjoy the famous Sawmill Sesame Steak Sauce, complimented by sweet potato fries perfectly done with an excellent, tangy dip. The Taco salad was also very fresh with a nice tortilla shell bowl, according to one colleague. Lastly the Fish and Chips looked just like the English original. Thanks very much for a very nice lunch."

  • "Service completly ruined this experience for me. It was awful from the get go. Server was sloppy and asked if we needed anything during our meal but did not listen to us leaving us completly ignored. This place overbooks the restaurant to the point of servers being unable to manage a table properly. Our food was good but service killed the experience leaving me to boycott this place altogether. Drinks empty after appetizer. 30 min wait for dinner then 30 min for to go containers/dessert. Dont ask if you are not going to listen. Poor representation of good food. Avoid"

  • "The time was great from beginning to end. We were welcomed when we came in and quickly seated at a pleasant table. Our waitress was very kind and did not leave any of our needs unmet. The Brunch was beautifully arranged and delicious looking. The food was tasty and we enjoyed every bite. There was a lot of food, unfortunately I had no room for the delicate desserts that were offered. I would highly recommend the Sawmill at Capilano to anyone wanting both a great meal and great service."
