The only complaint I have are then uncomfortable plastic chairs.
Stayed at the Sheraton and this restaurant was at the hotel. After a long day, we decided to not go far. The ambience wasnot the best but the service was great as well as the food so it was a good decision after all.
My fiance and I came to Cafe One (currently under construction so it was on the third level of the South building) for dine out Vancouver and a night away for his birthday. Unfortunately we were very disappointed by the food and the location of the temporary restaurant. Should have known that the temporary location wouldn't be very nice, but it was the mediocre $40 menu we were most disappointed with. It was unimaginative and lacking in flavour. However my salmon was cooked perfectly, which is something that rarely happens. I get that they have to produce a lot of the same food on the dine out nights, but producing luke warm food with very little interesting flavour when you're paying for the "top end" $40 a plate, we had hoped for more. Service was very good though, and my martini was fantastic. They definitely have a top end bartender on staff, as well as great servers!
Solid choice for a nice evening out.
We all had a bad experience,,,,the chairs were like deck chairs,,,and we wouldn’t have them for the colour,,,,nothing we ate was dine out food,,,except the sable fish
I’m a small eater and even I went home for toast and peanut butter
Beet purée was paint on plate,,,,,tuna was so thin the fork would not pick it up
Desert was 2x2,,,,,hardly a taste
Had to wait forever for our bill
We were so disappointed
we visited cafe one during vancouver dine out. we waited a long time for our appetizer , guest that arrived after us were served their dinner long before us. the quality of the food was not good and overpriced. chairs were plastic , very cold and uncomfortable.
Fantastic food and service. I would highly recommend this place. And the live music is always great!
Our server was very nice, got our orders right. Food was good, very generous portions. The Cesar salad was delicious, and my picky little one ate all of her chicken fingers.
For the most part the service was very good, however, they ran out of the bottled wine I ordered, and the scotch that was ordered 'neat' came on ice (the waitress did not know what 'neat' was). Also, we had already finished our salad by the time we did get our drinks. However, the service mgr. did not charge me for the 9 ounce glass of wine I did eventually order, but charged me for a 6 ounce glass instead.
The piano player was a great unexpected bonus.
I eat at Cafe One quite often and will continue to do so. The food and service have always been top-notch.
This was a Christmas Brunch. Did not think it was particularly good value for the money. Eggs were cold. Service was very good though.
Live music, white table cloth and a window seat, great start.
We had the beef and the sablefish mains starting with the crab cakes, all well presented with wonderful taste.
Our 930 res led to an empty house, however the adjoining bar was full of energy.
A good choice
Cafe One is a fairly typical hotel restaurant but one that makes a serious effort with great service and good food. As is often the case, our Open Table reservation resulted in a very nice window table which had been reserved for us. Our hotel was in a transitioning neighborhood and the proximity of Cafe One made it a good choice. We enjoyed the evening.
Very much a hotel restaurant, nothing special at all, ensure your expectations are in check before you come here.
Poor service. Food was good on a limited menu. Decent ambience, but nothing special
We came here for Dine Out Vancouver and had a great time! Easily one of the best Dine Out experiences I've had in years. Service was friendly and attentive, food was great and atmosphere was lovely! Food was delicious and presented nicely. I was impressed that everything, from the starter to the dessert, was consistently great. I recommend checking this place out!
We went for Dine Out Vancouver. It was the menu that really appealed to us-otherwise wouldn't have thought to go there. We were very happily impressed! The food was excellent, service great-no complaints!
Good food, generous portions, didn't feel the need to stop at Tim Hortons on my way home ;-)
Kids friendly restaurant, with children menu.
Really enjoyed the food and the service was great!
Dinner on Christmas Day at Cafe One was exceptionally pleasant. The plated meal was tasty and well served, though the sauvignon blanc that arrived was not the crisp, citrus-y brand we ordered and clearly recognize. We drank it anyway, without complaint.
We booked a Christmas Luncheon weeks before Christmas at Cafe One on Open Table. We arrived at 2:15 on Christmas Day for what appeared to be an advertised Full Christmas Luncheon with turkey and all the trimmings. The room was strangely empty for a Christmas Lunch as every place that serves Christmas Dinner during the day in Vancouver is booked months in advance. We asked the server about our Christmas lunch since we had a normal, pretty uninteresting regular lunch menu on our table. She said that the Christmas meal began at 5. Even if they had offered us a place at the actual Christmas dinner, as they did the table next to us who were in the same boat, we couldn't have come as we had plans later. So I had fish and chips and my husband pasta. In the spirit of Christmas, we bought a pumpkin pie at a market and had that as our Christmas dinner. The manager admitted that it was the first time he had set up bookings on Open Table and comped us a ginger beer and a Manhatten for the resulting confusion. Don't know what he offered the large table next to us.
Fish was uncooked. Terrible service. Just terrible. I would not go there again or recommend this place to anyone. I expected more. If you're going to charge $20 for a small order of fish and chips at least cook it and have some decent homemade fries, not out of a bag!
The service was excellent. The chairs are very comfortable. All the tables have a lovely view over trees and the tables are not too close together. We had Christmas Day Brunch and the food was tasty, well presented and still hot. The lovely staff who worked on Christmas morning deserve special mention. We will definitely return.
Lovely staff served us well right from the get go. Lovely, bright and colourful room. Tasty food. We had a fabulous Christmas Day Brunch. Thank you.
The only vegan item on the menu was the soup. It was nothing special and reminded me of the vegetable soup that comes out of a can. The garlic bread was poor quality.
My friend seemed to enjoyed his meal but left a great part of the salad as he found the portion
was too large.
The service was friendly. It was quite busy and so we waited some time for our food to arrive.
This was fine as we wanted to enjoy a leisurely lunch together.
