Notch 8 is one of our favorite restaurants in Vancouver. The environment is excellent. The service is always very good. The daily special menu is very good. It is a good place for friends to get together or special celebrations.

All the cooking shows I watch always say, if you put it on the plate - it should be edible. I got an appetizer displayed on a rock and twigs.... luckily the server advised not to eat the 'twigs'. Food wasn't that great for the price, and ambiance is nil - the bar area looks nice, but the restaurant is on two sides of the walkway to the bar. Didn't feel special for $ and enjoyment.

Sat buffet brunch is very good when the restaurant is not too busy. Staff couldn’t handle it today. We were never offered water. Tea nit refilled and drinks ordered were not brought to the table. Plates were left on the table for s long time. I had to flag down someone twice to give them my used plates. We were there for one hour only and we were handed the bill while we were almost done. It was really bad today...very odd.

A very beautiful setting with live background music matching the vibe well. Wait staff were very professional and provided the perfect level of attentiveness. Food was extemely well presented with a creative and delicious combination of flavours that were well balanced. Only downside was that my octopus was over done and a little chewy as a result.

never mind boring ambience or high price...
but the most important they seem not to have any cooks at their kitchen. at all.
raw minced meat with raw egg and onion pretending to be tartrar.
raw steak of unidendified animal (elk tasted the same as bizon)
same sause in two diff dishes (none?)

one of us puked when got home.
another one ended up with upset stomach. so far the worst dining experience in my life.

more details upon request.

recommendation: bring your date there if want to break up with them.

This place should be busier than it is. The food is very good, none of the prices are shocking.

Best prime rib in town.

Honey bread is v good.

Kids menu is v good.

Our dinner experiences at Notch8 have been wonderful, as has been the Afternoon Tea. However, on this visit we were there for the breakfast buffet. We arrived at 10 but by the time we were seated and ready to help ourselves to the buffet, it was closer to 10:15. Unfortunately they were closing the breakfast service at 10:30 and therefore the selection was limited and main staples such as bacon were not replenished. We did not go hungry, but at $37 a person, I must admit, we were both somewhat disappointed.

The service and food were excellent. Our dinner was not rushed, atmosphere was relaxing and high end.

The three of us including my husband and my sister decided to treat ourselves to a Sunday night "dine out" experiences at the Notch8 restaurant Downtown. We ordered the 3-course set meal, everything went well with the appetizer beside the waitress seem to be unhappy waiting our table. The main course was where the nightmare began. I ordered the steak to be made medium rare. After a few bites I realized my steak was super chewy and overcooked. I asked the server to come over and look. She explained to me this is how it is done with everyone's dish and refused to make me a new steak. I complied and said fine can i order something else off the menu to replace the main course. So, I ordered a normal price main course on the menu, which was fine. When we asked for the bill, I was expecting them to credit the main course form the “dine out menu” out from our bill, but instead they charged me full price on everything including the steak I didn’t eat. I talked to waitress again and she began to be rude and said we have no rules like this! If you have any problems talk to my Manager. After a few min, the manager came over and explained that I ate more than half of the steak, and refused to refund. This is where I got disappointed and angry. This is the first time I dealt with a such unreasonable and irresponsible staff at a well-known restaurant. In conclusion after all the fiasco, the manager decided to only take 10 dollars off our bill to compensate for the "dine out menu" which is a total disrespect to their customers.

Awesome food. Awesome service. It's probably 10 times better than Black and Blue. Considering it's both 40 dollars dine out. Will be back regularly.
