Situated on the third floor of the Shangri-la Hotel, the dining room is serene and sexy. There are comfortable semi-circular booths and smaller tables in an open greenhouse like room.
The service is tentative, knowledgeable and friendly. The food is tasty and beautifully presented. The wine list covers several terroirs in North America and Europe. Overall and beautiful room and good menu.

It was the first time for my wife and I at this restaurant. We were the first ones to arrive for seating at 5:30 pm. When the restaurant opened, we were ushered to a 4-person table with aisles on both sides of the table. Two ladies behind us were given a window table. When I asked for the same, I was told there was no table available at the window. I was speechless. My wife declined the 4-person table and we settled for a table near the wall. The host told us, "Did anybody tell you that because of bookings you have until 7 pm and then you must vacate the table. " Wow! Was everybody else told that too? Because we had a show to go to at 7:30, we were ok with that. However, if it was, say, our anniversary, we would have walked out immediately.
What a start to this restaurant that is listed on the top 10 in Vancouver.
We both had halibut which tasted ok, nothing great. The presentation was awful. Bernaise sauce delivered in a container like ketchup? Really?
Side order of fries for $8? Burger King or White Spot has better fries!
The cheesecake dessert was the best part of the meal. It was very good!
Our waiter, Tom and the other servers, were all friendly and efficient.
We were the first ones to leave. I didn't see anyone rushing to leave. In fact, the two ladies after us by the window, were sipping wine and there was no main course in sight.

My wife and I are not the complaining type of people. In fact, in about ten years of Open Table reservations, this is the first negative review I have written.

Overall, disappointing treatment by the host and overpriced nothing special food will keep us from visiting this restaurant again.

The staff were all super friendly. When the manager delivered my food he accidentally knocked over my coffee onto my food. He was prompt to remake my pizza and offer me a free soup. In addition gift my daughters each a stuff animal and made them felt special. At the end also took my pizza off the bill. All around the service was wonderful, the food taste great and we had a very good time.

4 stars for Kitchen and Bar (-1 for microwaved stiff bread)
3 stars for the service
0 star for the table reservation system (I requested for a "quiet table" on my reservation a week ahead. We arrived on time at 5:30 pm and have to wait for their table set up until 5:36 pm. When a guy in black suit brought us to the first table right next to the bar and washroom, he turned away immediately. We can only requested for a quieter table to our server who was nice enough to arrange us another table at the back which was in front of their serving station and next to the private dining room)

Although we put a note that it was a special occasion, we were placed at the worst table ever (bistro table size for two) pinned against a big wall with no view at all. The dinning room was not even packed.
The assistant manager saw that we were upset and came right to check on us. We were moved to a very nice large table for two by the window with view on Vancouver.
The service from our server was good but nothing exceptional. The food was average/good, we had high expectation since we are used to the best service and food in the Shangrila’s restaurants in Singapore.
I would say the flavour, the sweetness and the saltiness of the sauces/marinate were not well balanced (either it was very salty or very sweet or both). The food was lacking of refinement and flavour nuances.
I’d like to thank Mayank, the assistant manager, who was very attentive to our feedback and was eager to please us.

The food was exceptional, the ambiance is great and the service was quite good. However, we were provided incorrect information by the person calling to confirm the reservation which caused our reservation to be cancelled, then reinstated. During dinner there was a further mix up of an allergen being served to us. Nonetheless the staff had a great attitude, but I am surprised that an allergy that was noted several times still appeared on our table.

This was our second visit, and it did not disappoint. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious- from the cocktails to the dessert. We had beef tenderloin and crusty halibut, both beautifully seasoned and presented.

The service was outstanding. Our waiter, Nathan, was attentive without being intrusive, and offered excellent recommendations. Furthermore, he really went the extra mile to accommodate my husband’s need to avoid onions - checking ingredients with the chef and ensuring that the alternative to our original choice was just as appealing. We were there to celebrate a birthday, and the specially plated dessert was also accompanied by a handwritten note from the maître d’ Simon. The entire team deserves compliments for a memorable evening and exceptional service.

Loved the atmosphere, we got a really bad table to sit in, servers were nice, but noticed we waited a while for them to make their rounds. Servers are very accommodating. Food was delicious i got the tenderloin and my girlfriend got the chicken, both were tender and juicy. The only downside i feel like is i wish i got more food for the price.

The period between each courses are horrible. My mom was full from her appetizer because we had to wait for more than 15 minutes. We ordered 2 juices for our drinks and it didnt come until my main course which I had to remind the waiter about it. He then said “I’m so sorry for that, coffee is on me later” and guess what... IT NEVER CAME! And I don’t want to remind him AGAIN. We had to wait for the dessert for about 10 minutes. Which was odd, the couple next to us ordered the same deserts but it came out faster than ours. Overall the foods are good, I wouldn’t say its to die for, its just okay. But the service is horrible..
