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.

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

This place was amazing. I highly recommend making a reservation and sitting where you can get a view of the kitchen so you want watch plating and sneak a peek at everything that comes out of the kitchen.

Food quality and presentation was excellent
And the staff serving appear more stettled and seemingly comfortable
Sommelier advice was spot on but would really like to see more of the top BC wines on the list
On other visits the live music can be too over bearing and should be more in the background
Overall a major dining star in Vancouver

Everything is amazing here. Try the Deep Cove cocktail at the bar, seriously game changing cocktail. Service is spot on for fine dining and you will feel like the only table in the restaurant.

Enjoyed a very nice meal at Botanist for an early Valentine's Day. Fresh local ingredients used, and beautiful presentations, without being in your face about how local they are. They just let you enjoy the beautiful presentations. Quantities are adequate to good, and didn't leave hungry. Good attentive service. Would have liked more chocolate options on the dessert menu (Chocolate comes from a plant, right?) Would come back again for a special dinner

Great food. Went early with two young children (2 and 4 years old). Staff were friendly and accommodating. Smaller sized entrees but very delicious. The cocktail was amazing!

Loved the design and the attention to detail. Menu options were great, really enjoyed the two eggs Benedict I chose. The avocado crab and the pork belly were divine. Really great service!!

I went to Botanist yesterday for dinner and had an incredible experience. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is top notch, and the food delicious. They even gave me a birthday card signed by the staff. My husband said his lamb entree was the best lamb he’s ever had and my sablefish was perfect.

Thank you for an amazing night!

Our table was in a lovely room. However, the piano music was extremely loud. We had difficulty having conversations with our party of 6.

Extremely impressed with the high level of professionalism and service both before and during our meal. I'm on a 30-day diet so I contacted the restaurant ahead of time to see if they could accommodate. They were friendly and helpful with their menu item suggestions. Our hostess and server were both friendly and very informative. Only downside is that they charge hotel prices for things like pop/soda water ($5) /tea/coffee ($6). Something to keep in mind if you're the DD, pregnant or not wanting to try one of their fantastic wines/cocktails. Definitely a must try!

Came in at 1:30pm, we’re given the breakfast menu for some reason. Service was alright -wasn’t warm, maybe our waitress wasn’t feeling well.

Scent of the hotel messed up with the nature of the restaurant - or if you like to eat oak and flowers in your food, might be for you. didnt get that west coast inspiration from the ambiance’s but definitely in the food. Maybe talk about fairmont about this.

Overall maybe just not suited for us or got that “home away from home” vibe.

I absolutely loved this place. The décor was beautiful, the service excellent but personable and warm so not stuffy like in typical high end restaurants. The food was exquisite and every bite was a party in my mouth. I had the octopus chorizo starter, rib eye and gnocchi main and shared the croissant dessert and the banana mousse dessert. Everything was presented like a work of art. It is of course expensive but worth it for a special occasion or if you want to treat yourself on a date night.

Food was great but others were not enough. Tables and dishes and interiors were not matched together. I felt like I was in a restaurant in a busy Chinese city. Especially big round tables were very strange look for me. Looked like a very cheap restaurant.
