    Loved the food and service, although the cost for the weekend brunch has increased a lot even though nothing about the menu has really changed and you still only get an hour and a half to dine. It's like you're paying more for less..

    Had several wonderful dining experiences at ARC which is located in the Fairmont Waterfront. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner and offer a lively lounge with live music which is a nice place to wind down. They also have Happy Hour. Breakfast was amazing. They have the best Eggs Benedict and Steelhead Frittata. Lunch was pretty awesome as I was craving a burger and fries. Well the Char-Grilled Angus Cheeseburger was perfect. They also have seafood and pasta so the variety is good. The Mango Rice Pudding is beyond words!!!! AMAZING!!! So sorry that I found this dessert and I have not been able to quit thinking about it. It is the best dessert ever and would definitely have it every time I dined at ARC. Highly recommend. The specialty cocktails are very nice! The ARC Spritz was refreshing and the La Paloma were good selections for cocktails. They also have a few drinks inspired from their rooftop apiary. Will try a few of those next time I am in Vancouver. Location is near the waterfront and after a delicious meal, just take a stroll along the waterfront and do some sightseeing. Lastly, the staff was just lovely! They made every effort to make our experience pleasant and made us feel valued as customers.

    We had a wonderful light dinner Julie and the team were so attentive and spot on. Would highly recommend this to anyone. I will say the Cobb Salad was outstanding with such a large piece of Steelhead. Perfectly cooked. Great value. Also the house made pasta is so delicious that that we loved it as well.

    Ancina was amazing! She took care of us when we needed to make room for a few more guests and she never made it feel like we created a challenge for her, even when one guest had an issue with their meal. Our only disappointment was that we were thinking we were coming for brunch which we learned is only on weekends but this just means we will need to come back again. Thank you! We had a great time celebrating our graduation with you!

    We went on a staycation overnight at the Fairmont for my birthday and booked the Arc for dinner, also enjoyed happy hour in the lounge. The ambience was lovely, the service was outstanding, very warm and friendly :) The food waa very nicely presented and delicious, the coctails were fantastic. I have to recommend the “lavendar bergamot sour” exceptional! The rigatoni mushroom pasta and short rib entrees were wonderful.

    They dropped the sauce on two of our guests and stained their white sweater and beige blazer. Thebserver just brought some soda water to "remove the stain" with. Didn't offer to pay for the laundry, didn't offer anything complementary, didn't even fully apologize. When we asked to see a manager, they said none is working and gave us a business card to call and complain. Terrible experience considering this is supposed to be a somewhat high-end restaurant.

    always great to have Sunday brunch at Arc! same great menu, all you can devour! Tho yikes! the price is 🤯. understandably wth all costs going up, expected. and it was a special occasion, so price won’t bother me, but any other regular brunch, i’d probably pass for a less expensive option. food is delicious, comes out warm and freshly prepared. my kids devour the biscuits and the braised cheeks with polenta are a MUST-try. even if you’re full, order the oohey-gooey skillet..you won’t regret.

    One of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. Incredibly slow painful service. 6 of us chose the all you can eat experience for $65 each, sounds like fun for a Sunday brunch right? WRONG! It took 28 minutes to get the iced coffees we ordered. Another 14 minutes before our first order to arrived. You are only allowed to order two small dishes per person at a time, this is where they get you! Then they stall making you wait and wait all while your 2 hour time limit ticks by. Not one of the dishes we ordered arrived hot. Nothing beats cold eggs benny! The only time we received anything that resembled decent service was when the bill came, you know to make sure we tipped well! All of this went down under the watchful eye of the manager who never came by even though he could see our disgust he simply walked by several time with his iPad around his neck! Bottom line Vancouver has so many better places for bunch that will actually provide service, hot delicious food and appreciate your business! Definitely will not be returning!

    The food, service, restaurant was excellent. Only one point, we were told at 10:10, our table wasn't quite ready, have a seat or have a walk at the water.our name was not taken, when we returned at 10:30, the hostess saw us, but did not put our name on the seating list. My husband went up to speak to the hostess, only then we were put on the "seating list". It could have been organized better.

    Pre-2020, ARC was a favourite for lunch. Food was disappointing this time. Cod with chips - cod was like a frozen fish stick - batter was too thick and hard, hamburger was nothing special. Not likely to return with so many other options for lunch.

    We did the all inclusive brunch in celebration of our anniversary. It was a nice change to do brunch as opposed to a dinner. The food was amazing. We tried a large portion of what’s on the menu - you don’t have enough time to try everything even if you wanted to. There is a time limit and they ask that you order only 2 items at a time. Each course takes a little bit to come out. The food really was top notch and It’s great if you plan to share as you can try a lot more that way. I would recommend to try it once if the menu interests you as a nice treat or for a special occasion.

    The Manager on Duty during Thanksgiving dinner was so accommodating and gave exemplary service. Our server, Shannon was superb and also gave an outstanding service. Unfortunately, the two receptionists on duty on October 10 dinner time were awful and the receptionist with the long hair had terrible attitude. When we told her that we really didn’t want to be seated next to the kitchen, she gave us a bad attitude and told us that the tables are all reserved for four people and could not accommodate us three. However, when a party arrived for three people, she sat them on the table that we requested. She was just awful and did not talk to us in a professional manner. The Manager on Duty was very nice and kind to us. They shouldn’t have staff like her, a big turn off for customers.
