Botanist celebrates harmony with nature, in an environment that is as rich and diverse as the terroir it represents. The experience reflects a new Pacific Northwest, one that has always been here, just waiting to be discovered.

Helmed by Botanist Executive Chef Hector Laguna, the menu represents the abundant botany of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, where ingredients sourced from their natural landscape are coupled with contemporary techniques; designed to showcase the best version of themselves, making people go to the gathering place for our culinary community.

Located in the heart of Coal Harbour inside Fairmont Pacific Rim, this casual fine dining restaurant offers four distinct areas with their own robust personalities; a bar, garden, dining room and lounge – all inspired by the principals of botany.

Celebrated my birthday. The service from the moment you come in is amazing. It’s extremely clean. Staff are very professional. The food was impeccable! Seriously the best brunch I’ve ever had! I can’t wait to come back.

What a wonderful restaurant. As a plant-based lover of food, I found the menu to be thoughtful and creative with excellent vegetable-forward fine dining options while still having a menu that caters to meat eaters. The cocktail menu was also creative and very in keeping with the overall vibes of the restaurant. I found the service to be fantastic, and the overall ambiance very impressive and memorable. Food quality matched the price point. Can’t wait to return!

Situated in one of the most luxurious hotels in Vancouver, the Botanist matches the hotel's high standards with amazing food, cocktails, and service. Great place for a special occasion or if you want to splurge a little bit. It's one of those restaurants that gives you an experience with food that would be extremely difficult to replicate at home; that to me is always worth the premium. Vegan options are available, and they are more than happy to accommodate any other dietary restrictions.

Nice restaurant but overpriced and lacked atmosphere. Food was good but not worth the price tag. Service was decent.

Only complaint was the chair I was sitting in. No back rest and awkward to sit in. Benches are much better. At least in a party of 2 one person will be enjoying their evening.

Nice place. Not a big fan of the food compared to the expensive price. We had the valentines tasting menu. We both liked 3 out of the 6 dishes. One of the waiter forgot to bring us spoon and we had to ask for it. Another misunderstood our refill request. For the expensive price, it wasn’t spectacular nor was it the best food we ever had. The decor and ambience wasn’t as cozy and romantic as other restaurants. Doesn’t feel as high end as it has advertised. The seat also has stain on it. It was an experience we had wanted to do for a long time. But afterwards didn’t feel it met our expectations. That’s okay thou. At least the dessert was great! However we probably won’t come back.

You must book in advance because it was really busy. Beautiful place and Great food.

I got the Beef Tartare + benny’s Croque Madame , and my friend the cheese plate + benny’s mushroom risoto. We shared the avocado toast. Everything was delicious, well seasoned and warm (I hate cold eggs).

A French guy called Hugo was in charge of our table and provided a great experience.

We had the weekend brunch. It was so delicious. And their drinks have so much alcohol we got drunk. The service is really good and you really feel you're eating in a luxury hotel restaurant. The only problem with ambience is being so close to the kitchen. It doesn't feel really high class to look into a kitchen. I would go back. The price was worth it.
