    I thoroughly enjoyed the scene at top if Vancouver. The service was attentive but not rushed as well. The food was excellent, especially for the price. 30-50 dollar meals were a great value when considering the view. If you are looking for more chit chat from the employees I recommend this establishment. They seem to try to make one at home. All said it was a good experience.

    Beautiful view, excellent service; and the food was very good, but not quite as good as the price charged for it. Possibly just a Vancouver thing--I was not familiar with the area, but now understand it has quite a high cost of living.

    The view is second to none, the food was very average for the price. If i were to go again (unlikely), i would go for the view only and get the cheapest thing on the menu because the food was average at best.

    While the service was very good and they were very attentive, the okay view was not enough to compensate the mediocre food. Vancouver is a great city but not necessarily an impressive one from above. It is a working port area so much of the view of very industrial and the building aren't that striking. I don't have much to say about the food. It was very dated and mediocre. Still, if you like rotating restaurants, go for it just keep your expectation low.

    The service at this restaurant was great, however the food was quite bad. For $46 for a new York steak, I would expect a decent cut....the redwine sauce was nice and was the only way I could eat the steak. It was full of tendons - very bad cut. My husband and mine were both the same. The crab legs were over-cooked and not fresh at all. They tasted like they were freezer burnt - again not worth the money spent...which was an additional $25 per plate. We had calamari to start which was soggy and rubbery and did not have any flavor. Overall I would never return or recommend this place to anyone. Much better food and lower costs elsewhere. The view is great - that's about it!

    It is located at a great location with many tourist spots, e.g. Gas Town, Pan Pacific, downtown, etc., and cheap parking garages around. Its food is much better than anticipated and they offer a significant # of choices. The prices aren't cheap but reasonable for the corresponding food quality & magnificent scenic view. It's great for special occasions & romantic dating.

    The view is spectacular, especially on a nice sunny day. The drink and food choices are ok. The service is great too. I've heard the food reviews were not good for this place, and they are definitely right. We were there with business associates, 6 in total. My lamb shank came out completely cold. When I asked them to take it back, the server said it would be the first meal out. That did not happen. I got my meal when my whole party was completely done with dinner. I asked them to just pack it home. I expected at least a free drink… NOPE. No attempt to make up for their mistake. Oh well. Can't say I won't return because the view is worth it.

    This was the first time my husband and I ate at the restaurant. We arrived at noon so that we could see the city view of Vancouver. The view was spectacular and the service was excellent. The Sunday brunch was the best I have ever had with a large selection of breakfast foods, lunch foods and seafood (very well presented) And, the dessert table was fabulous! This restaurant is a must see for anyone wanting a great dinning experience which includes a great view of the city. Even though I live outside Vancouver I am planning special occasion meals at the restaurant for my family in the near future.

    Ate here in 2006 with soon-to-be-ex husband for our last Christmas dinner together. This time I brought the boyfriend for his birthday. At 7 pm, we were seated beside a window right away. Great view overlooking the city and inner harbour; it takes an hour to complete a full rotation. Good food but not spectacular. Mine paste as hot and fresh, his chicken was kinda skimpy. Thank goodness I could share. Had drinks & dessert at home. (Blueberry trifle and Ameretto.) This meal cost me a full days pay: $111 for 1 appie and 2 mains plus taxes and tip. The view is lovely but as it is from any high point in Vancouver. This was a special treat and I'm glad we went but it's a 'once is enough' place, for me.

    Omelette had to be redone 3 times as it was made with items I didn't want as I can't eat it due to religious beliefs. Buffet food was cold and items not cooked of overlooked (bacon). We complained and was told manager would come but didn't. Bill was high for food and no discount offered.

    Recepcionists were very friendly. Food did not taste good and server was very unprofessional. Never asked us how the food was or if we needed anything else and did not come to our table often enough. Had to wait for about 15 min after our table was clean and server did not come back to offer a dessert or the bill. Had to walk to the main entrance and asked for bill. Told server about her service and no apology given. Called the manager and manager gave us the free appetizer for free but manager was not very friendly and apologetic. Scenery was great but it was eclipsed by an awful service. Would recommend friends to pay 15 bucks for the lookout but not for an expensive dinner that did not live up to expectations.

    The skyline has certainly changed in the 10 years since 2004. 10 years ago in this restaurant I asked the love of my life to spend the rest of whatever lives we had remaining - together. She accepted. 10 years later we wanted to recreate the magic of that evening and the food and service was as excellent as we remembered. The seafood medley and the halibut were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The wine list had something for every price range. Abdul treated us like we were the only guests he had to attend to We certainly were not disappointed with the view either. I am glad "She said yes"

    Vancouver is a beautiful city and if you need reminding dine at the Top of Vancouver! You see the entire city during the course of the meal - great architecture, seascapes and colourful sunset! The food is good - lobster seems to be specialty. The service is attentive and friendly. The salads and vegetables were a little disappointing. The price point is a little high for the food but after all where else can you get the view!!!

    As with any restaurant that is a tourist attraction, the food is more expensive, but has all the classic menu items for any size group. There is a large selection of salads, pastas and fish courses and our group of 11 was pleased. Service was somewhat slow, but on a clear evening, we had a fantastic sunset which made up for it.

    I ordered the grilled steak for dinner, although my medium rare was done to perfection, lets face it a grilled steak is nothing to boast about and put a fifty dollar price tag on it. The pasta that was ordered was basic but the price made it seem like it was something that came from the secret book of the culinary arts. Plates were garnished but it w as nothing that reflected the price. If you wanna see the city like you never have definately try it out.

    My husband and I went to Sunday Brunch on Sunday, July 29th to celebrate our 23rd Anniversary. The view is spectacular. The brunch buffet was disappointing. We had gone 3 years ago and it was fantastic. Lots of selection and lots of seafood. This time the selection wasn't that great. The cold shrimp were great, crab legs ok. There seemed to be a more Chinese buffet feel to the food. Don't get me wrong, I like Chinese food, but was not expecting it at this kind of a restaurant. Dessert was very disappointing as well. Again not much selection. There was lots of fruit, but there was only two kinds of white layer cake, no fancy little tarts or slices like 3 years ago. For the price of the buffet ($43) you would expect more.
