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.
Great place, great service, great food, it was an anniversary, even have a personal card written! thank you
Botanist is a great restaurant with a simple and elegant menu, exceptional sommelier, well trained staff that pays attention to detail and gives amazing service. Managers go out of their way to acknowledge their appreciation for your business and have trained the staff appropriate for the 5 star service you will expect at a fine dining establishment. They still keep an eye on things and are on standby should anything go wrong, can't imagine with such preciseness and attention why anything will go wrong. Really enjoy the dining or bar experience. Living in the building I am a frequent visitor and have always been pleased with the experience.
Ambiance and service was impeccable. The brunch was truly a well handcrafted experience. Would definitely recommend.
Beautifully designed space and delicious food. I took my team there for a celebration brunch and couldn't have been happier!
The Scallops were delicious and well priced. The music was very loud, but service was excellent.
Amazing food and service. A little pricy but I thought it was worth it. Flavours were out of control delicious and the wine list is awesome !
Food are too salty
Noise level are high during peak hour
Favourite resturant in Vancouver! Loved sitting at the bar!
food was really good. I love the environment! Covered by all kinds of plants
Was an absolutely amazing experience. The interior was beautifully decorated the service excellent and the food! Definitely worth every penny. We had a great experience here and look forward to going back again!
Excellent food, always good service and a cool room
Enjoyed our tasting menu - 6 courses including dessert - tried some things I have never had before - presentation was beautiful
Our server was very friendly and attentive when it came to the food, I told him we had a time limit for lunch (1 1/2 hours) and he made sure we had our food (appetizers and entrees) well ahead of my deadline, so that was amazing. Andrew fell down a slight bit on the details, I had asked to see a breakfast menu as I organize breakfast events and that didn't come. I ordered a diet coke and 10 minutes later I still didn't have the drink, not sure how far he had to go to get it. Our dessert took a long time (approx 20 mins) and took care of it. I would have cancelled the dessert had he come back to the table but he didn't.
Andrew kept our water glasses filled and we were well looked after for the most part, food was amazing and delicious as always, one of my favourite Vancouver restaurants.
Very good presentation, good service, tasty food! will come again for sure!
Beautiful place. The atmosphere and service is exceptional. Food is yummy also.
From the minute you arrive at the check-in the adventure begins. The staff is amazing, you are always treated like you are the only one there. The food takes PNW ingredients and elevates them to a new level. I love the tasting menu as it gives you an amazing journey through what our region provides. We are still talking about the lamb belly which melted in your mouth, the best lamb I've had. Similarly, my dinner partner is from Australia and has had her share of lamb this was by far the best, so much so that two days later it is fresh in our minds. I recommend the tasting menu as a must go.
Beautiful all around. Food was prepared with care, gorgeous and unique flavors. Well worth it. We’ll be back for sure.
i went there to celebrate BD with my wife and both of us wa happy. We got a BD card wish as well. food tasted great and we loved the decor
Beautiful experience as always. Impeccable service, delicate food, and creative drinks.
The tartare is SO GOOD. The service was excellent and the ambiance is wonderful. I would highly recommend.
It was my second time eating here the first time i ordered a fish and it was outstanding ... for months i was looking for a chance to take my husband here but this time the sable fish was different and i didn’t enjoy the taste or the arrangement of the dish...
... next time maybe we choose a different dish... i am not giving up on this restaurant. it’s a beautiful place 😋
We enjoyed dinner. They have amazing food, many kinds of wines and cocktails, great atmosphere and good temperature. But a staff who served us was unkind for us. Although this restaurant is inside hotel but he looks annoying because we are just visiter and our English skill is not high.
Of course we should study English more but it’s not live, it’s just trip.
Another staff were very nice!
Maybe we will go this restaurant when we visit Vancouver next time because food was really tasty.
Went to Botanist on New Year’s Day for brunch. This was our first time, didn’t know what to expect. Everything was great. Kinda wish I knew there was a specific menu before hand. The food was great tho!!
Emma our server was awesome! Food was beautiful and just as delicious. Thank you for a perfect New Years brunch.
Great service and delicious food, loved the New Years Brunch.
the toast was burnt, avocado wasn't very fresh.
We were warmly welcomed by receptionist and that’s about all the best part of our experience. Average food with underwhelming service. Will not come back again.
Service was excellent and noise level was perfect for having conversations. Food was so good, I couldn’t stop but knew I had to when I got full. Excellent restaurant and very bright inside.
Always love coming here for a special brunch.
I thought Botanist was ahhmazing and the ambiance was exceptional. However, we made reservations for 9pm then got seated as our table wasn't ready for about 20 Minutes. We didn't mind this as the seating area was super nice and we got drinks but this has happened before.
Dinner and drinks were amazing but I have to say we ordered appies and drinks to start and then dinner. Dinner took about an hour to come.
Waiting for seats and dinner was the only con of the night.
Great staff and location.
Lovely food and great ambiance! Cocktails are fantastic as well. Definitely would go again! Next time, I'll try the "We'll take it from here" surprise set menu as it looked amazing!
Great place to have brunch. The place was full but the noise level was comfortable. We could still have a nice conversation. The menu was not overwhelming. The food was great!
Long wait in spite of reservations
Low quality food
Nice server though
It was very good but expensive. We were having a nice family meal. But I was disappointed when I ordered my second drink and it took so long to come we still didn’t have it as we got the bill. I asked to have it taken off but she brought it anyway, as we were leaving. And charged me for it. Left a bad taste in my mouth.
We got the tasting menu for dinner, which was a hit and miss. The amuse bouche (leek puree with caviar and tapioca pearls) was awesome and got our expectations up for the meal to come. The first course was sunchokes (with sunchoke ice cream) and persimmon, and it was both tasty and interesting. The second course of scallops (great) with green apple puree (too sour) and red wine reduction was not bad. This was followed by a sea bream in olive oil (good) and eggplant mousse (tastes slightly burned); however, one of the accompaniments was again a bit too sour for me. The fourth course was a fantastic sablefish (we had asked not to be served beef) with a mushroom flavored tapioca crisp. The final dessert course was a bit underwhelming (a cake). However, we ordered an additional dessert, and it (chocolate porter cake) was a lot better. Service was very polite, friendly, and prompt. Overall, it was a good experience.
The aesthetics and vibe of the place is top notch, down to the presentation of the food itself. I personally found the food to be a bit too salty but my boyfriend really liked it. We had a good time and would go here for special occasions in the future
Had the 5 course tasting menu on Christmas Eve bought for us as a gift. Voucher didn't include drinks so we bought our own, had cocktails and two glasses of wine, the sommelier recommended the wines for different courses! The food was delicious and enough to feel full. Live music in the background and attentive waiting staff. Loved it!
