Amazing food, excellent service, and ambience. Beautiful location/view.
Excellent Peruvian / Asian fusion. A very good addition to West Vancouver cuisine.
Loved our date night. Food, drinks and service is amazing ! Very special place for a lovely evening out. Pricey but worth it.
I was expecting more out of the service. Beer list was subpar. Good wine list but our server was not knowledgeable of the wines and didn’t offer the sommelier. The sushi rolls looked like they came from Mr Sushi.
Outstanding attention to detail,
Food, the best that I have encountered outside of Tokyo.
Thank you for a wonderful evening.
It was my first visit to Ancora and while expensive, the food is superb and so is the atmosphere. Our server was helpful with the menu and overall it was a very good experience.
A very tasty selection of seafood and meat dishes. The manager is always welcoming and the room and the view are exceptional. Service is almost perfect most times.
A must try is the sushi pizza!!!
Our first time for dinner... food and service were excellent and it will be our “go to” restaurant for family and friends on the North Shore!
The food and service was absolutely incredible! I had a great experience at Ancora Ambleside and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. Amazing staff/service and amazing food.
They took great care of us and made sure we had a fun evening. Doesn't hurt that their food and drinks are really amazing, probably the best dining on the north shore.
Great food, very friendly and helpful service; would definitely revisit.
Great food, great service and a beautiful environment.
Chefs at Ancora Ambleside have new ideas as how to prepare some traditional dishes and, for the most part, their ideas work. Dishes are not blend and do have character. Staff were courteous, professional, and attentive. The experience is not quite fine dining; but the food is more exciting than most fine dining restaurants in Vancouver. This was not our first visit to Ancora and given the current circumstances—it is 2020 after all —we were pleasantly surprise that the quality of the food keeps improving. Overall, dining at Ancora Ambleside is a very pleasant experience.
the food was good and fresh
Finally a top end restaurant in West Vancouver. Very cosmopolitan- could be in any major city in the world.
Very good food with great attention to detail. I would highly recommend it.
The server made amazing recommendations and demonstrated excellent attention to details of our dinning experience.
We’ll be back for another date night or for special occasions!
Amazing Christmas Eve dinner - couldn’t have been more perfect. Food was absolutely delicious and service was excellent.
Thank you for giving us a lovely experience while we could not be with our families.
We will be back!
The staffs’ attentiveness to us was amazing and the food was excellent.
Most important, the restaurant was well layed out so very COVID safe
The octopus and ling cod entrees were excellent. Civeche was very good. The sushi pizza made on a bed of fried sushi rice base was amazing. Not what we expected. We'll definitely order again.
Restaurant is beautifully decorated to give a great ambience.
Maybe a little pricey but well worth it.
Looking forward to trying their Happy Hour (tapas size treats)
Service is EXCELLENT! My only wish is that they offered a salad selection. And something for them to consider would be weekly or monthly specials so that regular patrons have access to more options.
Exceptional quality of food and presentation, however the night was extremely busy and although our server attended us as best as possible, it was lacking in frequency and the arrival of food exceeded normal times. It was disappointing as it was a special night that was left short of expectation. The table next to us was obnoxiously loud and added to the negative experience.
Highly recommend this restaurant for all who enjoy a great meal!!
Exquisite food and great service!
The restaurant was somewhat quiet due to Covid. Which was really nice actually. I suspect if it was at full capacity it might be loud. It was our first time there and really enjoyed it.
Great restaurant, lovely meal and great service. Really enjoyed it.
absolutely fantastic place!
Our server was amazing! We keep going back for her!
Simply outstanding evening.
The Ancora experience rivals our best meals in Rome.
Best food in Vancouver! The sushi pizza was incredible and the service was spot on. This is our new date spot!
My mom and I were welcomed with delicious bread and spread. Just to get your tastebuds going. For dinner we shared sushi pizza, lobster and shrimp risotto, scallops with bacon onion jam and wild mushrooms with white wine. For dessert we chose the one with matcha and strawberry with kiwi sorbet. Overall it was delicious! The service was outstanding!
Our evening at Ancora was amazing.
Outstanding service, superb cuisine and very, very carefully crafted cocktails.
For me, outside of Rome the dining experience at Ancora is as good as it gets.
Amazing food amazing and attentive staff !
Great food, friendly service, nice and quiet ambiance in a great location.
My son’s birthday.
