Grays at the Park - Hilton Vancouver
Book your next event with us
We were new to Vancouver in 2016 and the Hilton was the first place where we stayed. The Grays back then was not as attractive and modern as it is now, but it had its charm off Esther Short Park. The food was flavorful and delicious and we kept going back to Grays after we bought our home. We had dinner at the restaurant for my husband's birthday and something was off. The bread they usually brought fresh baked to the table was now tough breadsticks for $5 and it was covered in shredded parmesan with a side of parsley covered butter and some sauce we couldn't guess the flavor. Our food was prepared well, fresh vegetables, but the salad dressing was different and the tastes were not the same. We think it's because they may have a new chef or perhaps cut back on the quality of the food due to the expense of the renovations. Overall, I would not recommend it to anyone because it's too much infusion with emphasis on the bar and drinks. We aren't drinkers, so flavor of food is what we are attracted to with dining. Our service was great - no waiting (with a reservation), and the food was brought in a timely manner. Unfortunately, we won't be back.
Changed reservation to 17:00 from 18:00. Host failed to record reservation; therefore, nasty letter from OT indicating I was a no show. $150.00 plus tip charged to room at Hilton Vancouver. I guess I showed.
Sorry, not great. We were seated at a table in the cold back corner, when plenty of booths were available. Tenderloin steaks not great for such a high price. Presentation non- existent. Giant pretzel was good. Service could be more friendly, helpful.
Very accommodating for families. Excellent staff.
Great food and service
Could put a dark micro brew on the list - Porter or Stout.
Birthday. Great place to eat and converse.
We had a problem with a gift certificate, though that has been resolved. The food was OK but not as good as one might expect at such a nice place. Desserts were great.
I didn't know this was a hotel restaurant, so my bad on that. They say they cook their steaks at 1600 degrees, but by the time it got to me, it was room temperature. I've had grass fed beef that was pretty good, but this $36.00 ribeye was gristly and had NO marbling whatever. Service was adequate, but not outstanding. No bread was offered. I don't know if you have to pay extra for it...didn't see that on the menu. Selection of sides was limited. The baked potato wasn't hot enough to melt the butter, and the sour cream was almost frozen. NEVER AGAIN
Nice date spot in quiet Vancouver downtown. The food is cookie cutter but portions are reasonable for the price. My server was very fantastic that time. If I could do anything different I would wish not to be seated by the door. It was a little chilly. Not a bad place to stop by if you are looking for a safe, comfort food dining experience.
The menu is a bit on the pricey side but food quality was very satisfying. Server was very pleasant.
We have never been to Grays and we found this to be a delightful experience. The ambiance was wonderful the food was delicious staff attentive and pleasant. We will definitely go back and I have already been telling people all about it.
I thought the food was fine, but not great. I go to many restaurants and I would say Gray's is in the middle - not high and not low in the culinary department.
We had great service and delicious food. My sea scallops were amazing
Two of our foursome enjoyed the turkey pot pie dinner, but I was extremely disappointed that we only had a choice of dinner off the special Valentine's Day menu..So what I had planned on having for dinner was not possible...
A late breakfast with four members of my family was a great success. The food was plentiful and very tasty. They were very solicitous of my daughter's dietary needs. Our server was exceptional. She got the kitchen to do our breakfasts beyond the time that they normally switch over to lunch, and saw cheerfully to our every request.
Awsome food at a great price. My new go to place! Would recommend to evveryone.
Food was fine however could have had better plating and some dishes were not very hot. Staff was great and atmosphere good.
A special place. The food was absolutely outstanding and delicious!!!
Our friend who ordered the Hot Buttered Rum was impressed that it was HOT and the Halibut Fish & Chips were the best she had ever eaten. Not greasy, delicious**
Can't wait to return.
Cameron was great.
I love all things fried and potato-y, and Gray’s consistently has excellent French fries and tater tots.
I had the daily special street tacos (which were salmon the night we went), and a side of tots. Both things were fantastic. They also have an excellent selection of local beers on tap.
As always, great device, good food, best ingredients, conversation easy. Perfect!
A great choice for excellent food at reasonable prices. A true gem.
We celebrated a birthday at Gray's at the Park-Hilton Vancouver and all of us enjoyed different menu items and were all very pleased with our choices. We all agreed we would gladly come back. Service was excellent and desserts were well worth the feeling of being too full!
Good ambiance, great good and service. I would recommend the mac and cheese with andouille sausage. Very cheesy and quite scrumptious! Also had seasonal warm spiced pear cider that was delicious with a lot of the spices of the season.
verything was excellent/ Been coming to Gray's for many years/
I had street tacos. They were flavorful and served quickly. Good place for a business lunch.
I had an excellent burger. Good service and nice atmosphere for a business lunch.
An altogether decent hotel restaurant. Food is good if not terribly imaginative, service is friendly but not intrusive, there's free valet parking and it's open for Sunday evening dinner.
Service was amazing but the food wasn’t what I had expected to be for the price
Friday night could not get into our first two choices, Grays was near empty, food was good and the staff was attentive, we like to go when we’re in the mood for a quiet dinner.
Great service. Somewhat unique fare, but sauces were too edgy for me. Very overpriced.
Food was excellent; it just took too long to get it.
We got the Dine the Couve special menus — steak and salmon. Both were very good and prepared correctly. Serving sizes were just right for no leftovers. We thought it was good value.
Gray's had a recent renovation and we were curious to see if the restaurant improved. We had gone many times in the past and it was very hit or miss. They were often out of key ingredients, service was not good and it was just so disappointing.
This is our first time with the new decor. The food was good and service was very good. It was also very slow in the restaurant and bar. We will try it again and see if the improvements stay.
Good food .good atmosphere .sirloin steak was absolutely wonderful
Food was very good. The french onion soup and bacon wrapped shrimp with cheesy grits were both excellent.
The service was quite slow and not busy.
For some reason, they said that we didn't make our reservation, which we did.
Nice place to have a bite after the Farmer's Market
A pleasant lunch place for my lady friends to gather and chat!
This was our first experience in the updated dinning room. The booth seats were firm and comfortable. Service excelled. The salmon was excellent according to an Alaskan who knows what salmon should be. My halibut fish & chips were moist with just the slightest beer batter coating that stayed crisp. Last entrée, sirloin steak cooked perfectly. Would recommend dinner to anyone. The new menu options are expanded to include items kids would like while keeping the best of their dinner options too.
I have eaten there for dinner with relatives, and reegularly for breeakfast with a friend. The service has been wonderfully attentive and helpful; Both breakfast (with its many options(The granola absolutely the best I have ever eaten)) and dinner. Grey's is within easy walking distance for my wife ad me (we live in a condo adjacent to the park), so we feel fortunate to have a dining place we can count on for excellent service and dining, It is no accident that we consistently tip generously! Thank you for delivering such pleasant booths to sit in as well as totally enjoyable and consistent doing satisfaction! Don Nickerson and Linda Larsen
Excellent food and superb service made the all too rare date night my wife and I shared this past Saturday one we will remember.
We will be returning as soon to further sample the mouthwatering menu.
Really enjoyed this place. Very pleasant decor, friendly staff, great food. We sat at the window with a view of the park. Great people watching too!
