My daughter and I enjoyed their two main pasta dishes and shared them they were a perfect portion size and delicious. The host, server and manager were all actively serving the guests from entering the restaurant to ordering to checking in.
There was ample parking street level, and it's very easy to access.

My spouse and I enjoyed our dinner at Preston’s last night. Our server was attentive and recommended a few dishes to us. I went with the Cod & Chorizo Chowder and the Mushroom Ravioli. My wife went with the Chicken Parmigiana. The chowder was fantastic and I would return again just to enjoy another bowl of it. The mushroom ravioli was also very tasty. The Chicken Parmigiana was a little overcooked and dry and thus my spouse did not fully enjoy her meal. We finished off by sharing a piece of the cheesecake which was very good.

We had an excellent time here. Our server was absolutely the best. She took care of everything we needed and did so with a smile. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Had 3 apps (crab cakes, Cobb salad and soup) and 2 mains (chicken parm and salmon). Drinks were also made professionally and promptly. Would definitely recommend.

They had a nice table already set up for our party of 4 when we arrived. Water and beverages were served promptly. There weren't as many selections as expected, especially for alternative pasta dishes and meats. The steak in the surf and turf was tender but small (maybe 6 oz.) and the shrimp were fresh and juicy. Service couldhave been better in asking immediately if any condiments were desired for the meat and vegetables. The sauce across the meat and potatoes was o.k. but it took time asking for and getting a steak sauce. All the food was beautifully plated. Burger great. The chicken parmesan was half-eaten-and taken home to add more cheese. They served a beautiful, complimentary dessert - slices of a unique, cream-filled cake roll with just enough chocolate sauce and fresh slices of mango and grapes. Very cheerful, hospitable atmosphere. Clean and comfortable.

Layout of the dining area prevents better customer service. The restaurant is rectangular in shape and have tables in U-shaped booths along the wall. The high booth backing is great for privacy but hard for the waitress/waiter to see our calls. Suggest maybe leaving a service call button on the table as remedy.

Food was great, way better than expected, slightly salty on the main. Can improve on the dessert. The Japanese cheesecake looks like bread more than a cake, and the ice cream on the chocolate ganache could be replaced with a smoother brand of ice cream (it came out with ice crystals all over, meaning it has been sitting in the fridge for quite some time)

My friend's salad had too many yellow leaves, but the waiter offered her 50% off the price of it, which was nice. My soup and pasta were good. Not too many people for a New Year Eve early dinner, table and restaurant spacious. They have a one and a half hour limit for a table for 2, but maybe because there were no one waiting in line so they didn't rush you to finish, which let us take our time to eat and gave us plenty of time to chitchat. Overall pleasant experience.

What a Christmas disappointment. We were visiting Vancouver and looked at reviews of restaurants that would be open on Christmas Day. Not only was Prestons open, they had a wonderful prefix menu available for Christmas Day. We booked a table for ourselves and our traveling companions. When we got there the on duty manager was very nice and seated us early. But the menu she handed us was nothing like the menu listed on THEIR website. It was not only a limited menu (not even their regular menu) , it had two parts, a basic lunch menu and then a slightly expanded menu for later in the evening. I approached the mgr and was told that she was sorry but that was the menu. I showed her their own website right then with the holiday menu....She was not particularly concerned with making our experience anything other than a dissapointment. As we were leaving(the mistake, the lack on much of a menu and the mgr's attitude made it not worth staying) a waitstaff person suggested that we try the Marriott next door. Thankfully she did because the Marriott was a very nice experience. We're visitors so it doesn't matter much but we'd never recommend Prestons. If I could give them zero stars I would.
