31st wedding Anniversary.
Delightful , unhurried brunch with old friend who had a nostalgic history with Hotel Vancouver.
As older gals we found the noise level to the advantage of our hearing .
Servers were more than attentive without making us feel rushed over a 2 hour! sit. Hotting the teapots was a lovely touch.
Worst experience I have had so far in Vancouver by FAR
Terrible food, I had the strangest tasting piece of fish, the pork belly app was not good.
Absolutely! This is my 4th visit to notch 8. For downtown Vancouver, I am always looking for a balance of food, service and ambiance. There are many places that is trendy without substance and this place is not it. It’s a gem of a place! Our service staff Tyson who helped my family (twice) was attentive and authentically nice!
Amazing night. Chef Peckham and staff made it a memorable night. Chef Peckham came out and talked us through the menu along with recommendations and he made a a few special risotto dishes just for us. TRULY AMAZING. The food was so fresh and full of flavour alongside great bubbles and wine selections. THANK YOU. We are going back in 2 weeks. 😀
Very pleasant experience, congenial staff but a little noisy (as is everywhere these days).
Awesome, I really appreciated the food and the ambience!
Had to wait to long for service. Food was satisfactory for the price.
Great live music
Service was poor. Server appeared dishevelled in appearance and did not engage when spoken to. No eye contact and no smiles....expected more from this restaurant.
Joe was the ultimate professional! The food was amazing
The price is really high for the quality of the food
It was an absolute joy staying at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver this past week. Notch 8 is the restaurant found in the lobby of the hotel where we enjoyed late-night food and drinks in the bar after a concert at the Orpheum Theater and then breakfast the next morning. Everything was lovely on both visits. The host was very polite, the restaurant is well-appointed, the service is professional and efficient and the food was very good!
The portion is small than I expected for the price. Was difficult to scoop up the desert without using fingers.
Food was good and so was the service. It was expensive but would do it again for a special occasion
Closed out an amazing day with our Anniversary dinner at Notch8 in the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Incredible dinner (OMG Bison Carpaccio with hazelnuts & blue cheese crumble and Cheese Curd topped Mashed Potatoes!) with fun staff that made our evening super memorable. And we were double surprised with a decadent dessert platter comped by the hotel and the couple at the next table bought us a round of cocktails.
I immediately booked right after we celebrated my sister's birthday last time because of the great experience we had. But last Sunday's experience was a BIG disappointment, from the service to the quality of food. I originally requested for a seat by the fireplace since I wanted it to be special too because it's my birthday treat to my sister's boyfriend. But it was given to another customer who arrived just few minutes ahead of us despite my early reservation. The server was nice but needs to be more proactive and keen to details. Our plates and cutleries were already on top of each other before she could even remove them. We had to remind her about the coffee we requested 15 minutes ago before she could bring it to our table though she already brought fresh ones to other guests. There were two of them in the area at that time but both have poor service. The English muffins from the eggs benedict were to hard and the sponge on one of the desserts was too dry. I was expecting also that a birthday cake will be served to my sister's boyfriend like the last time when we celebrated her birthday too. It could have made the experience more personalized and memorable. Hopefully, we'll have a much better experience next time when we come back...If we ever we have the confidence to come back.
One of my favorites in Vancouver. Exceptional service, well plated and great flavored food.
This is an unusually busy evening. We blame our last min reservation and food does not met our usual expectations from previous visits. An unfortunately disappointment from our usual favourite joint.
Very good food and an excellent selection. I will definitely go back. The prime rib was superb.
Very nice meal , ate here originally as we are staying at the Fairmont but would eat here again
When I booked there was one question for what occasion. I clicked on bday because that was my bday. I thought and was hoping they would give me a little surprise like greetings or a small cake but nothing.
Excellent service, but the food was an absolute disappointment. Egg bene’s were dry under the heat lamps, and with an hour still to go, zero replenishing of sausages, and watery scrambled eggs. Only saving grace of the warm foods was the potatoes... guess you could not mess sautéing baby potatoes.
the waitress was not engaging or attentive and we had slow service
Poor food by the taste and look. Especially the lunch. We ordered a fish and a steak. They both looks like 5 dollar food. The environment is good but not the food. High tea is awesome.
Atmosphere was good, the food was amazing.
Service was slow, food display was all over the place -- seafood section did not feel fresh -- flies as well; egg station serve the smallest portion I've ever had before; each hot food in a cast iron pot, every difficult to self-serve for all ages and genders --- I was helping others to remove the lads many time.
Place was so noisy, the dessert section display was stacked and crowded -- I felt sad for the chef with good work but didn't have a fair chance to show-off.
We have been many brunch places, this for sure on the lowest ever!
Went to Notch8 last minute for a date night. We ordered the Wagyu beef and beet salad. Food was tasty with good size portions. Service was great!
This is the worst experience I've had in Vancouver. From the very start, the waitress was straight out of a Denny's and acted like she was working in a diner. Their wine list sucks, they only have 2 real meat choices, lamb and prime rib... are you kidding? Avoid this place at all costs, so many better restaurants in Van.
Lovely dinner, wonderful food, and excellent service. But please bring back the OMG chocolate cake and the birthday dessert!
The prime rib is delicious! It took time though to place our order. Regardless, I’d go again, the food is that good!!
Our Sever Alina was not very good and did not come by our table to check on us if we needed anything and we had to wave her down a few times to get her attention. She only seems to be checking other tables but not us very poor reflection to the Notch 8 brand!
The food was excellent and the ambience is so perfect especially if you want to celebrate any occasion. Our server was so nice and very attentive. We will definitely come back. In fact, I will be booking another reservation for a family member's birthday again in October.
Enjoyed the brunch buffet a lot the first time! Brought family the second time, and although it was very similar and not exactly the same... unfortunately, the pancakes, French toast and egg Benny's were all dry this time. Service and ambiance was great though.
Very noisy but asked to be moved to a booth and then OK.
Staff was extremely rude.
Martini and prosecco served in warm glasses. Should have been stored chilled or ice and water the glass before making. Especially when they were sooo slow for a Saturday.
Server didnt know what kind of oysters they served. She said they were notch 8 oysters? Picked specifically for them. (There still is a name for them....)
Appetizers, salad ok.
Dinner good. Ordered medium rare but for rare. 34 dollar wagyu was ordered and lamb. Wagyu was...... a 34 dollar wagyu if that's what is was. I would say was an Angus.
Server never performed wine service/topping of wine glasses.
Overall... for a fairmont restaurant... mediocre. Has better food value at cactus or the keg.
Really nice hotel but the restaurant price is ridiculous with not many options even u don’t serve any poultry and beef related for a brunch buffet. Then u mixed up all kinds of meat such as bacon pepperoni sausage with fish and ect.... u should have separate section for all kind of meat coz u have a muslim guest as well.
I ate lunch with a work colleague at notch8 on Friday. They were not busy but the hostess did not seat me for 10 minutes leaving my colleague waiting for me. It was very curious. Lunch arrived without delay. My burger fell apart on my first bite - the taste was good but there was no way that I could eat it with my hands - I had to eat it with fork and knife. I would not recommend Notch8 for lunch.
