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.

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.
