I would recommend this gem to anyone. They go beyond what is asked of them. From the time i made the reservation. This year is a very hard year for us my brother was murdered this summer. The restaurant was full to the max and my sister decided to come with us. I explained the situation and in a few minutes they where able to accommodate us. Once we arrive to the restaurant to our delight we were in a private room. In total we were 7 people for the Christmas diner. The food was wonderful my son is a bit of a picky eater the waitress which i called our angel for the night notice right away and give him extra turkey and stuffing since it was a set menu with a 5 course meal. I love the atmosphere totally relax and friendly,At a upscale restaurant. If i could give it more then a 5 star i would my sister is blind and they didn't fuss over her they were totally professional and explain where her food was. They made sure everything was to our liking. We were sad to leave and will def return.Congrats to everyone

We came here Christmas Day to celebrate my sons’ birthday. Our reservation was for four. My husband and I were seated and I ordered a cocktail. At five past four my son arrived. No time was given for conversation but we had to pick up our menus and order immediately with my son having no time to completely read the menu. I had the feeling that we were rushed the entire time. Though I emailed and phoned regarding this being a birthday no mention was made of it. Though the food was excellent I felt rushed and just another client. I was disappointed.

We were extremely disappointed with our food. A shrimp salad, which we shared, was bland and the risotto was even less flavourful. Sometime ago we had an amazing risotto here, but we learned that the chef switched from a chicken to a vegetable stock, which obviously contributed to the lack of flavour. Even asking for, and using, salt made no difference.

Having said that, our service was exceptional. We ordered wine by the glass, and when the waiter poured me a taste, I mentioned that it was flat (likely as the bottle had been opened and there was little left) so without hesitation he opened a new bottle which was much better. As well, after mentioning our disappointment in the risotto, he asked us to select a free dessert. In fact, he brought us two desserts; unfortunately, the salted caramel dessert was also disappointing. This, of course, was not our waiter’s fault.

Based upon this experience, however, we likely will not return, which is a shame as we live only two blocks away.

Had to make it one last time before they close at the end of the year.
Once again, the food, service, and ambiance were excellent.
A particular highlight, this time around, was the Beef Cheeks, which were sublimely tender and tasteful.
The service was particularly attentive, as well as entertaining :)
Given this visit, will be trying to snag a spot for the New Year's Eve dinner, which will be their last.
Thanks to all for the last ten years!
Here's hoping that the new dining incarnation in this space will be every bit as good.

Food was auctioned off when the mains finally arrived after a long wait. Also, the wrong appetizer came to our table.

This is definitely a top-notch place, the result of careful planning and management.
The food is finestkind - I ordered one of their signature dishes (Salade Nicoise) and I must say that now I have a new yardstick for this particular dish.
The price was high, but I would say that I got more than adequate value for my money.

We love Market and we hope that whatever replaces it in January will be up to the same standard. The food, service and atmosphere are exactly what you want in a 5 star hotel dining experience. We think it’s one of the best restaurants in Vancouver, if not Canada.

all the appys were fantastic, excellent customer service and great ambiance. in terms of entrees, lobster, tenderloin and wagyu cheek were all average at best. Had better beef and lobster at the keg. expected a bit more from a restaurant in shangrila. that being said, great experience and would come back for appys and wine.

The food has gone downhill badly here. Items on the menu are not as described and don’t contain the things they suggest they do. The food was very average and something you might expect to get at White Spot. Not what I would expect from the standard of restaurant and hotel. Service staff also seemed quite inexperienced and did not know their menu.
