I had exemplary service. The menu recommendations were great choices. Overall, this was a great dining experience.
Very good experience from start to finish.
Came for my birthday, the lady who welcomed us and took our coats is just lovely. We didn’t get the table by the garden we had requested right away, so the manager apologized and offered us complementary cocktails ( the poet cocktail was delightful) which reflects the attention they give to their customers and their high quality of service.
Brunch was good but I’d wished they had a more extensive lunch menu on the weekend. ( didn’t really feel like eating crab benedict, ragout or burger for my birthday). I would have appreciated something more special and sophisticated, perhaps I should have reserved for the dinner instead. The pineapple desert was delicious and very creative. The waitress was very nice and attentive. Overall it was a joyful experience.
Cons: - a little bit noisy in the dinning room,
- lack of intimacy feel
-very expensive to park at the Fairmont.
A feast for all the senses.
Service is top notch. Food is well portioned and attention to detail is an obvious priority. Timing is on point. The lamb is very tender but the seafood is the best. The beet salad is not only beautiful but also delectable. You will not be displeased if you choose the eatery for a special occasion.
I can’t say enough good things about this place! Food was exceptional, service terrific and a beautiful room to showcase it all. Will definitely be back soon for the pineapple dessert!
Came for my boyfriend’s 25th birthday and it exceeded our expectations. The staff were all incredibly friendly and the guitarist set the mood just right. Loved the open kitchen concept and the food was delicious. A little bit on the pricier side but worth it for a special occasion!
Excellent food and menu.
Impeccable service by Jackie! I think somehow that the food was better last year.
In a word - mediocre.
I accidentally put a reso for Sunday instead of Saturday and the lady at the front was happy to fix that for us! The service and the food were delicous as always but I will remember her
Great meal, excelent service. Ask to be sat in the garden if you are a couple. We highly recommend the 'let's take it from here' menu.
We had a lovely evening and enjoyed the experience immensely!
Friendly staff and excellent food. Did the tasting menu and every course was great! The restaurant takes care of every little detail, including a handwritten birthday card to my wife signed by the staff!
Botanist serves up some of the best food I've ever had. We had the duck breast and the sable - both of which were fabulous.
The food is exceptional...we had the scallops and octopus to start, followed by the butter poached lobster and seared sablefish. Finished off with cinnamon rice pudding and Meyer lemon polenta cake. I would highly recommend this place to friends/family. Great service as well. Looking forward to enjoying another dinner there...maybe lunch next time?
First - make sure to stop and have an "Experience Cocktail" at the bar before sitting down to dinner! We chose to have the "Take it from Here" tasting menu - was absolutely incredible and worth every penny!!
My partner and I came here for my birthday and Botanist made everything so memorable. The host was so friendly and funny, he even had a birthday card from the staff to give me after he sat us down. I’ve never been to a place that give you a card for your celebration, pretty sweet of them.
The food was absolutely amazing! We started off with some very creative cocktails and for our entrees, had the lobster and lamb. Everything was stellar! They even had a couple of guys playing live music late into the night.
This place is a must go to when in town! I would love to come back here on our next visit to Vancouver.
Nice room, acoustically challenging but comfortable. Great cocktails with great names as a bonus. Service efficient and friendly, not overbearing.
Food looked like art AND tasted great.
Great bar for a quick bite and or a cocktail.
Will be back.
First time experience and we wish that we were seated in the main dining area as oppose to side interior terrace to gain full experience. But on the upside is that it was more quieter. Thanks,
The Botanist was amazing! Such delicious food - my favourites were the tagliatelle, the lobster and crispy risotto, and the dessert. We had the tasting menu, and every course that we had was so good. There was nothing that I didn't like - which is surprising because I'm such a picky eater! Thank you so much for an amazing dining experience and for making my fiancé's birthday so memorable!
Great place for delicious food and great company. everything was delicious!
The gentlemen tending the bar where outstanding, knowledgable and made the cocktail experience here one of a kind.
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.
Yet another outstanding visit at Botanist. Did the tasting menu which is always my go to. Great variety of flavours and beautiful presentation. Service was fantastic. Highly recommend you treat yourself if you have not been here yet!
One of the most amazing restaurants in Vancouver. Stunning decor, interesting and tasty food and drinks. Expect to pay a lot but get a world class dining experience. Well worth it.
Kitchen was very slow. The server didn’t make any conversation. I was expecting more for the a restaurant located in the Fairmount
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
Amazing food, service, ambiance. The sommelier was exceptional.
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
It was an amazing experience! The staff were so attentive to every detail!
The overall experience was amazing. Great night with my friends paired with great service and an exquisite decor for the eyes. Will definitely be back.
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!
Always a good time
Very disappointed , poor quality food, small portions and overpriced . I would never recommend this restaurant.
Best Arctic char ever
Expensive for brunch but, good. Service is great, tasteful and unobtrusive. Great wine list.
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!!
Louder and a more casual feel than I expected, but overall an enjoyable experience
