                        Staff was friendly. Server was nice but forgot two orders. We were 9 people. There were only a handful of tables yet water refills were not automatic till the end of the dinner. Staff spent time chit-chatting behind the bar. Food was good & arrived in a timely manner. For the food we received, it was pricier than at other restaurants.

                        For the 3rd time now that I held a breakafast meeting at this CAVU Kitchen Bar at Hilton Vancouver Airport, it;s fantastic place to do breakfast and have a meeting at the same time. The waiter/server was so good and attentive to our needs. Fantastic service and food. Will be back again soon.

                        Sitting there for 15 mins. No server come by. Chicken wings used to be the best but not as good as before. I brought so many people just for wings and burger. This time us no good.

                        I came here for Easter brunch with my teenage son. They offered Brunch boards for Easter with bottomless mimosas. We were both so pleased with the whole experience. The hostess, Kylie, greeted us right away and was very friendly and took us to a great table. We ordered a board to share which was more than enough for two people. It was a fabulous treat for brunch…like a charcuterie board but with brunch items. Our server was polite and friendly and Kylie the hostess even came around to check on us and offered me a fresh mimosa. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is that the cooked items on the board weren’t very hot…more tepid but still delicious. Would definitely return if they offer brunch boards again.

                        My wife and I dined at CAVU Kitchen Bar for Valentines dinner. This was our first visit. We found the special Valentines menu to be amazing and a good value. I had the Scampi, my wife had the Beef Wellington. Both were excellent, as were the appys, sides, and desert. Thank-you Chef Alex! We will most definitely be back and would recommend you give them a try.

                        So friendly, I loved the service we received here. He even made me a specialty drink that wasn’t on the menu. I would highly recommend this place

                        I had been to CAVU before and the food was very good. Unfortunately, this time I took family (4) and it was not a good experience. The service was very slow and rather haphazard. They opened at 5 and we arrived at 5:30 but they were already out of two main appetizers. The cod in the cod burger was almost all batter and the poutine burger, for which they supposedly won a best burger prize, was dry and not nearly as large as in the photo on their website. The other three meals were passable but not impressive.

                        The Cavu meat burgers are very nicely done. The meat taste comes through and it is juicy. The poutine burger was tasty too but slightly drier than the Cavu burger. Good thing it comes with a side of gravy. Will definitely come back !

                        Chose to dine at Cavu based on Open Table rating and connection to the Hilton. There wasn’t the ambience we expected, but the rating was high, so felt comfortable with our choice. It was somewhat busy for the two staff and we waited about 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive, however the waiter did apologize while we were waiting for the delay. We ordered three small appetizers with plans to share a main. It took 25 minutes for two appetizers to arrive, delivered by the chef as the other two were too busy. which is when we were told they did not have the ingredients for the third appetizer. The waiter was very friendly and apologized and while we felt bad it was not going well, we did pay and leave shortly thereafter. It wasn’t a good dining experience, unfortunately.

                        New menu not as good as old one. Food portions are a bit smaller. Some items removed from menu. Prices increased but that's ok due to Covid. I'm not sure if I'd go there as often

                        Ate here on a Friday night, and the restaurant was not busy. We took advantage of the Happy Hour specials and ate some very good appies, the dry ribs, chicken wings, yam wedges and the crispy chicken, all were very good. Save room for dessert...we had the GF brownie with gelato and caramel drizzle...was a delicious dessert.

                        The food was OK, the portions weren't great. We were never asked if we wanted a second drink, and then when we paid our bill and stayed for another 20 minutes talking we were never offered any more water. The place was half full so shouldn't have been a big deal to offer some water. No one in the party was happy with their food.

                        Cavu was a nice place for two couples to meet for dinner before going to a play at the Gateway. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was very nice - we ordered burgers, a steak, and pasta. Our reservation was for 6:00, and we had plenty of time to walk over to the theatre after we paid the bill. The standard prices are a little high, but Cavu is in the Entertainment Book.

                        Waited 90 for a burger and was told it was because they only had 3 cooks. It was Saturday night. I could cook a burger in 10 mins. Would go to Burger King next time. Left before the food arrived. Very bad experience

                        Extremely slow services, took them half hour to give us tasteless mussels; another half hour for hard/ chewy/ tasteless/ small piece lamb shank (I need to ask for steak knife to cut it); thick batter/ old oil taste fries and fish; tasteless cheap quality New York steak; I need to walked to bar to ask for help. Our waitress was too busy chatting our customers. I saw 6 customers were mad and left, who finished their wine, because of their food never come. We won't go there again. We Cannot believe hotel's restaurant can be that worst.
