The staff was super accommodating to our two tables of four for Mother’s Day. The food was a bit pricey and the three course meal could have had a few more fish options, as I felt the steelhead was a bit too salty! Overall it was awesome, the staff was quick and informative on menu items and the atmosphere was quiet and idyllic.

Love brunch at Arc! Glad they went ahead with it on Mother’s day despite the provincial regulations during the pandemic. Great ambiance on their patio, we were secluded in our own little area and we were blessed with great weather! If it was rainy though, the patios are covered and heated.

Food delish! and I was better prepared for ordering just right! as it’s easy to order too much! They made some menu changes - a must-try is their new breakfast taco! and the pork cheeks with polenta! yum!

Our server, Gordon, was excellent! always attentive and friendly. Will definitely come back!

Great mothers day Brunch. The staff were very attentive to our needs. Pleasant and I like they give suggestions and honest.
Pleasant setting, sadly a bit chilly but sunshine made Mothers days a great day. My mum appreciated as did I the rose. Thanks with he help with my dad who is hard of hearing and has trouble walking. They have been quite isolated due to Covid so this was a great treat for them. The separation between tables and their adherence to protocols was excellent.
Thank you

Asked for coffee a few times. Only after getting our first round of food I received my coffee. Honestly it was very slow. I understand it was the first day they opened the patio, but it was upsetting having to wait so long for coffee (30+ minutes). Service was mediocre, and grooming was an issue with the server. It’s the Fairmont, you know you can do better.

Other than our arrival being met with news that they had canceled my reservation, and then saying that he because he had allowed walk-in customers and wasn’t sure if there would be any room for us, he will try to accommodate us anyway - I’m not sure what that person was aiming to achieve, since all it did was cause irritation and make both him and open table sound incompetent, the evening was fine.

Food was amazing. Quality, flavour, all of it. Only wished there was maybe one more salad option as alot of the food was heavy and rich, albeit delicious.
I got an email saying I missed our reservation, not sure how that happened considering when I checked in I said it was a reservation for 7pm.
A little disappointed because someone from the restaurant confirmed my reservation change and also noted on my reservation that it was my son's birthday. I thought they would recognize that somehow but didn't.
The service was very slow to start, we ordered our first order of small plates and I think it was almost 30 minutes until it arrived. We were told we only had an hour and a half for dining, but because of service we were there from 7pm until just after 9.
I definitely recommend the food!

We went for bunch and food was somewhat disappointing. Even though we ate a lot and were replete when we left, we felt that the food fell short . I expected that the venue and the price was a guarantee of excellent food quality, but only one dish was a standout for us (the apple skillet). Don't get me wrong, food was pretty tasty and presentation was excellent, but the plates were not memorable. In particular, the pork cheeks were a huge disappointment. The sauce was so overpowering that they could have served any crappy meat and disguise bad quality with the sauce, easily. I don't think I would recommend this place, there are many other options for fine dining brunch in Vancouver.

We attended the all you can eat brunch buffet for my birthday. They have a strict 1 hour and 45 min seating, but all my other friends said they were allowed to stay past their time limit without any urgency to leave.

Due to the time limit on your dining, we only got roughly 2 rounds in, but note that you’re only allowed to order 4-5 dishes at a time. The dishes are fairly small, suitable for one person or most 2 people to share. It seems pretty silly to limit 4-5 dishes at a time but not factor in portion size for how many people are at the table. How does one share one salmon benny between 3 people?
The second round we ordered, was pretty much a repeat of the first round because one or two of us didn’t get to try it. By the time we wanted to order more food, our time was almost up and we wouldn’t be able to order anymore. Our server didn’t even give us a heads up or do a last call for us, but only reminded us when it was too late to order.

When they say you gotta leave by the time limit, YOU GOTTA LEAVE! A few mins before our time was up, a dish i was trying to finish up on was taken away before I could even say anything, nor was I asked if I was done. There was a few other plates that could’ve been taken away first... but seeing that they cleared our table so quickly, we knew our time was UP!

For the price of 39.99 per person, I feel this special all you can eat brunch is an one time thing. I rather just order a single dish and be full afterwards off and pay half the price.

Came to Arc for my birthday brunch! Absolutely delicious. Food was excellent, great menu selection and can’t believe it was bottomless for $39 pp! Mimosas are expensive though at $20 a glass which I didn’t think was worth it. Service a little slow but to be expected considering they’re very busy right now. Overall, an amazing experience. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to come back and try Arc after Dark!
