    My friend and I had reservations for 6pm on a Saturday. Our dinner was lovely, the service was fine and we left happy. However, at 11:20pm, my friend received a phone call from our waiter asking if we had paid our bill. Not only was this insulting, it highlighted the server's incompetence at tracking his tables. She had indeed paid the bill (including a 20% tip) but another server took the payment. By the end of the conversation, he had found the proof of payment. Needless to say, I will not be dining here again.

    Service was attentive, there are a lot of staff but orders were not correct, timing of dishes was off, appetizers delivered with entrees? The bill was completely wrong items charged incorrectly, mistakes not adjusted. Food was good at best; steak should've been hotter. Steak tartar was not great - quail's egg had been opened well in advance that a thick skin had formed on the yolk - it was not eaten; the dish was flavourless. Caesear salad was different but over powered by 'warm lardon's' = very bacony… Ambiance is non-existent as the lighting to far to bright - feels very commercial not a fine dining atmosphere… The restaurant is over rated for food, and over priced - we won't be back. It definitely has a hotel banquet hall feel.

    Dined on 11/4/2014
    Our evening there with our group of 10 was great. The only thing I would recommend, is that your server not try to push items on the menu. He came over and immediately was trying to get us to order things off the menu we weren't sure about. It's nicer if we have a chance to "look" at the menu first and decide for ourselves what we want. I realize he was recommending, but he was also pushy... so that needs to change. He was very attentive - but again, pushed alcohol - and this was a working dinner and people had to drive, so we only ordered what we needed for dinner. The food was nothing short of amazing though. Very good!

    We enjoyed a fabulous meal this past weekend. There were 8 of us in total. The food was superb and the experience was wonderful. Our server was perfect. We were in a playful mood and he was happy to play along. We all ordered an appetizer, and an entrée. The server made some really nice recommendations. The serving sizes were a nice size. Nobody left hungry. The presentation of the food was really good. They were really good at using other servers and staff to present everyone's food at once, and also when they cleared the table. We never felt rushed at all. Great setting looking over the water. We have eaten here a few times before and will definitely eat here again. The Watermelon Cocktail is uber yummy.

    it's a very good option before a concert. noise level wasn't quite as bad as previously experienced. waiter seemed a little out of it, but was okay. food was good - I have a lactose intolerance and there was confusion with the waiter what that actually meant. perhaps it was a language challenge for him, I don't know. Overall, we were happy and will return.

    If you can get a seat by the window, the view of the river and marina is spectacular. The wine list is extensive and they have a partnership with a local winery if you'd like to try something different. We started with the lobster salad which was excellent; balanced, beautiful textures, visually appealing. Then after an extremely long wait, I had the beef as a main and my dining partner the linguine. They were nice but certainly didn't warrant the price or the 40 minute wait. Especially since there were only 4 other tables in the restaurant. The service was not as good as is expected at a restaurant of this calibre. In a city with so many fantastic fine dining options, in my opinion this one is a miss.

    I was very pleasantly surprised by Tramonto, after picking it for the view and proximity to airport hotels. My mother and I ate Italian style and after appetizers, split a main pasta and then the lamb. Everything was cooked to perfection, tender and delicious with top notch service and a lovely sunset to add to a fabulous meal.

    Pleasant friendly welcome. Great service. Nice room with view of the water & boats. We reserved & requested a table by the window. Ordered the Antipasto, very good seafood, coldcuts & veggies but hard eggplant & zucchini in it. Haida Gwai Halibut delicious but tomato chutney did not go with it & yukon gold potatoes hard as rocks. Seafood Lasagna had a delcious sauce. The rack of lamb nicely presented, but was cold. The Limoncello cheesecake, a jellied blob with no lemon flavour on a shortbread cookie. The Chilean wine was excellent. Next time we would point out what we felt wasn't up to their standard & if it is cold. They are very keen to make your dining experience as pleasant as possible. Would return again.

    Went celebrate my lady's birthday and was of the understanding this was a bit of a higher end restaurant. The prices certainly reflected that. Food was very good and the wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. Not a big drinker and was satisfied with half litre of the house cab. Big disappointment with children running around the restaurant and parents who seemed to be ignorant of the childrens behaviour. Also a loud, obnoxious quartet of men(?), who had obviously reached their alcohol limit prior to entering the restaurant. The decor reminded me of an office foyer. Check Tulalip for an example of fine dining in a casino setting.

    My husband and I went for our anniversary didn't. I hadn't told anyone at the time of reserving or on arrival. We had delicious champagne cocktails and wished each other a happy anniversary. We went about our dinner, each having appetizers and a main. The food was amazing. Perfectly cooked. Perfectly seasoned. Innovative dishes. We ordered a tart to share and coffees after our meals and across the plate was Happy Anniversary in chocolate! Our server had overheard us. Dessert and coffee were courtesy of the restaurant as they thanked us for sharing our special occasion with them. After such a lovely evening, there will be many more celebrations there. Well done Tramonto!

    It was our Anniversary and we had requested a table by the window. Not only did they provide the table requested but they also put a lovely bouquet of flowers on our table. The service was personable and the food was wonderful, with a lovely presentation. We declined on dessert as were quite full however, a short time later our waiter brought out a lovely dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate. It was a lovely evening and the restaurant and staff went above and beyond to make it a special evening for us.

    Our dinner here was nothing short of amazing! Everyone had a fantastic meal from start to finish. The food was delicious, well-made, flavourful, and presented beautifully. You can tell that the Chef has put a lot of time and hard work into the menu. The wine list is very extensive but could be laid out better. Service was top-notch from not only the server but the friendly hostesses and bus staff and other servers helping out. It seems like they have a great system going on to ensure the night flows smoothly. A window seat to watch the sunset was a bonus for us too :) Lovely views of the Fraser River, airport & marina! Only critique would be to change the red chairs :| Other than that, we would definitely return to try some more dishes.

    I've had more than my fair share of expensive fine dining worldwide. Tramonto charges as if they were fine dining but isnt. Pasta was just a tad undercooked than al dante. $45 seafood dish gets you 3 small clams and 2 mussels amd two large chunks of frozen smelling white fish overcooked steaks. was downright rude about us taking our time to order. At this kind if pricing I was expecting a sit down restaurant that lets you sit down and enjoy your time. waiter was super friendly. I'd prefer one who didn't talk but remembers to refill people's water. Was very nice to be in the private room, though, for the noise. Probably just a busy night. But I was my $500 back if they were going to under perform.

    The next day, the three of us were still talking about how good Tramonto is. If it hadn't been for a very loud large table of 10 guests over-taking the space with their volume, it would have been perfect (not much you can do about them). The food was delicious and the service great.
