Met my daughter who is living in Vancouver going to University. Had a very enjoyable meal and was very impressed with the quality of the food, prime rib was spectacular.

Went for a very important Anniversary. 25th.. We were marred at the Hotel. The table and server were excellent. Truly fantastic. Food was ok. Definitely overpriced, but pretty good. The noise was bad but we had a very nice booth which mitigated most of the problems. I had told the person that taking my reservation that this was a an important night and I was not disappointed. I will definitely come again.

I ordered fish & chips, they were less then average.
For the price I would have expected a nicer batter and chips.
Also, the coleslaw was all over the plate and I don't eat mayonnaise...
I will try something different next time.

This restaurant failed to update their website with the important information that the weekend offering is a breakfast buffet style menu. No a la carte options are available on the weekend. As a result, OPEN Table also could not inform the patrons of what is actually on offer at this hotel in the very upscale Hotel Vancouver. Very disappointing for our planned Sunday afternoon lunch plans. We left and ate elsewhere. The server apologized for the surprise buffet menu and offered to inform the Hotel Manager forthwith.

The restaurant was festively decorated and was a-buzz with people. Even with the high ceiling, the noise was interfering in our being heard. I much preferred lunch or brunch to dinner. The meal prices were high for the latter.

This was our third time here, and I believe this will be our last one. Our first visit to Notch was great. The second, not so much, but we chalked it up to just the dish we decided to order. Our third and most recent trip was just flat out disappointing. Rather than taking it out on the waitress, who was for the most part attentive (even though she was spread a little thin) I opted to voice my displeasure here.

The flavours of the Scallop dish were disappointing, and the ratio of the tart was not what i would call appropriate. We left half the tart shell on the plate. We skipped ordering mains after this.

Rather than having such nicely descriptive dishes in your menu, I would consider going back to making sure the dishes them selves are presented well and have the flavours that are claimed by the waiting staff.

I met my daughter there for dinner. I looked at several best rated restaurants online and picked Notch8 because of central location, parking options as well as I am coming in from Bowen Island. But I'd say mostly because I thought your dinner menu looked good. So kudos to your chef...they brought me to you. I did look at the menu of the #1 rated by someone ( as well as many others) restaurant at The Georgia. But I just didn't see anything that really appealed to me. And I could not see a dessert menu online. When I go out to dinner I absolutely want a good dessert menu. It's a treat. And in my opinion the desserts should be rotated, deleted and added to on occasion. Especially if I decide to choose a particular restaurant to frequent.
I ate the Shoots, roots and leaves I think it was called with Bee Pollen. I loved it. It was healthy, light yet substantial and beautiful to look at. I loved having a vegetarian option right on the menu instead of having to ask for something to be adjusted.
Shoots, leaves, they score!
Take care, I am positive I will be back.
Kathy

Dinner was horrendous! Would never recommend this place.

There was a foul smell like dirty dish cloths coming out of the kitchen and they had to change our table. That didn’t help because the smell kept coming and it was nauseating. The food was also horrible, lacking of flavour and over cooked. We had to send some dishes back because they even burnt the sablefish we ordered. Service was poor as it took 25 mins for our waiter to even come to get our dinner orders and we sat there trying to wave her down for hours.

Celebrating a 9th birthday, it was made truly memorable with Chef Will touching the table turning it into an interactive experience talking us through the campfire tartare dish including black truffle and smoked egg yolk.

We were blown away by the dessert platter created for a special occasion which was deliciously indulgent and a perfect way to end our evening dinner.

Thank you for such high level hospitality from Chef. I will definitely be recommending to friends and family!

The food is very good here focusing on west coast and local ingredients. Good choice of various seafood meal. Food is well prepared and well served. Also have a good wine selection though I find their prices a little high. Only downside is the ambiance. It is a lobby location and feels cold and is noisy and echoey. Not a good place for a date but fine for business.

Fantastic service! We went in to have afternoon tea as we had dinner reservation elsewere that night for my mom's birthday. However we didn't know that the last seating was at 3 for the afternoon tea service. So we were seated for dinner instead. We just had bread, soup and salad but we never felt any pressure to order mains or dessert. And during our stay we never felt rushed. A nice surprise was the live music - a guy on acoustic guitar started playing and singing around 5. Finally, there came a birthday cake slice with candles compliments of the chef! My mom and I were both surprised. It was a really nice gesture. I know now I'm having my birthday dinner here! Thanks Notch8.
