    Disappointing wine selection by the glass. A glass of a wine from BC or Argentina is not a suitable selection. The JLohr is by the bottle only. This is now considered a basic table wine for diners. It should not be excluded from "by the glass" It was in the past available as I used to have it. Now a bottle would be over the top for an appetizer evening before the movies. A lot of people do not necessarily share drink preferences so "by the glass" is the way to go... Even a 1/2 litre would be acceptable for a nice Cab. I had to have a BC Merlot this didn't make the appies as appreciated as possible. Would like to see this changed.

    While the dinner was adequate, it was not outstanding. Both of us ordered the rack of lamb. Portion size was adequate. Although we ordered from the three item Menu, when it came to dessert, the waiter did not seem aware of this and di not bring menus. The waiter was pleasant, though she did not seem to be particularly interested in our dining experience. I would say that overall, the meal was adequate and reasonably priced.

    The food was bland & in particular the Halibut Meal ... The Fish had no taste & the portion was ' rather too small ' for the price .. The accompanying Veggies in my opinion were from Cans as I expected the Corn to be fresh as it is in season .. The Chicken / Chirozo Penne Pasta was too dry & lacked sauce ... Overall the quality of the Meals was sub standard & needs radical improvement. ... I am a fan of the Pale Ale Beer that was served & the Melbec Wine was great as well. ... The Service was superb ... Will I return to this Restaurant - The Answer is NO unless you can prove to us that the Meal Experience will be upto standards. ...

    bought a groupon for this restaurant and had a pleasant time there. service is great, the location is good, one block away from the Lonsdale Quay. Had the mussels and bison carpacio for appies and both were yummy, especially the carpacio. the dessert (choco mouse cake) was amazing, the bottom of the cake isn't made with dough or graham cracker, it's actually choco meringue! never had that before Entrees is where they can improve a bit, they were chain-restaurant quality like Earls, Cactus....For $30 bucks an entrée, I expected a bit more.

    The quality of food was great for fine dining. The portions were huge and unexpected, we couldn’t finish our appetizer and entree. Everything tasted delicious. There was also live entertainment which made the ambience very nice. After dinner we went for a stroll along the pier and there a live band playing outside. It made it great for a date night.

    We were not impressed with the prime rib dinner we had. The meat was fine but not hot. Potatoes were warm. Veg. were non existent practically and Yorkshire puddings were cold (not warm, but cold). Very disappointing as we had looked forward to this dinner which had been recommended to us by a friend.

    I didn't like the food there. My potatoes were undercooked. There wasn't enough sauce on the meat. Presentation was bland. Wasn't worth the price. I was expecting a view of the water but there wasn't. Only thing i liked about it was the live music performance on the Friday night... other than that, I would have preferred to get some food at the night market and hung out by the water...

    We went for lunch and found the service excellent. It had a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere, where you could actually have a conversation with the person across the table from you. The food was good and the price comparable to other mid-range restaurants. I have also heard from a friend that the Sunday brunch is very good too. I definitely see us returning again with family and friends.

    It's a solid restaurant choice for the area. Service is good, as is the food. The restaurant itself doesn't have a lot of atmosphere, and could certainly benefit from some outdoor dining, but we would return, and would not hesitate to mention it to others.

    Dined on 5/18/2014
    Brunch disappointing and very average. Thought there was buffet as an option, but none available. Not really a brunch in the classical sense. Embarrassed in front of our guests. I should have done more research. My fault! Menu incomplete....for example, fruit or berry bowl or side of bacon available but not on printed menu. Food not heated enough. Bangers awful. Do not order additional fruit with waffle..$5 for a couple of blackberries and strawberries which were hard to find on the plate. Brunch potatoes drab. Hostess had no idea what half and half was compared to cream for coffee. Inexplicably, not nearly as good as it was a year ago. Too bad. Not worth a trip on the seabus to have brunch, sadly. Service was ok, though.

Was told we had to wait 20 for the buffet was open and the kitchen was closed for the regular menu items even though the other guests had been served off the menu. Eventually was allowed to order off menu but food arrived after buffet was open. I have been here twice before and had a better experience but now not sure I would go again.

    My wife and I took my parents here for brunch on the Saturday before Mother's Day. We weren't seated until about 15 minutes after our reservation time and there were far too many kids in the restaurant. I can't stress enough the importance of outlawing babies and screaming toddlers from higher end establishments. Other than those two things, the food was fair, the service was fair and the price was somewhat reasonable. I would not return here because I don't want to eat while kids are screaming and crying.

    We went here specifically for the Sunday night Prime Rib special and it was good. Nice portion size served with mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and vegetables. Could have had more gravy (it was pre-poured on the plate) and also was not served hot. It's obvious that it is pre-cut and probably set aside under warmers... not bad, but not super moist like a fresh cut would be. Overall, a good meal.

    An average dining experience at The Pinnacle. Food was pretty good, and our server was delightful. Due to the volume of reservations they had tables set up in an overflow room (perhaps a room meant for larger reservations?) which had little ambiance. It felt removed from the rest of the restaurant and was sparsely decorated. Other than that they had a blues band playing which was really good.

    As it was Dine Out Vancouver, I decided to try your restaurant because I had never been there before and I read the menu and thought it sounded good. The booth was great, cozy but not too small. The food was excellent, the cheese, beet, fig and orange salad had the right combination of sweet and citrus, crunchy and smooth. My main course was what made me want to go there. I loved smoked steelhead and the asparagus was great. The gnocchi could have been a little lighter. Dessert was fabulous. I will come again and would like to try a lunch next time

Nothing great at all the waitress barely spoke to us. There was a loud abnoxious table near us that ruined the nice quiet atmosphere we started out with... Very annoying... Not the restaurants fault. Would definately go back to try something different , the food was so good!

    My husband and I live in North Vancouver and decided to try The Pier @ The Pinnacle. The table was perfect and Andre our server exceptionally accommodating. I'd advised on Open Table when I made the booking of my husband's allergies to nuts. When we arrived, our hostess greeted up and repeated this notation; very good on our part! I did the wine pairing which was an excellent way to try my various choice of appetizer/entree/dessert. I know you normally during Dine Out need to "turn the table" with 1 hour 45 minutes, but we didn't feel rushed at all! I truly can't wait to go back for appetizers on a Friday evening and enjoy the live music! This retaurant a definite keeper!
