Northwest
Located on the waterfront where Granville Island faces the city, guests can enjoy panoramic views across False Creek to the world-famous cityscape of Yaletown and beyond to the mountains of the North Shore.

The open dining room is relaxed yet refined, wrapped in spectacular floor to ceiling windows, while the lounge offers warm intimate surroundings for evening cocktails.

The award-winning seasonal patio (patio closed October to March) catches sunlight from morning to afternoon and is an oasis of calm, disturbed only by the occasional sound of boats making their way along False Creek.

Whether dining inside or outside the views are stunning!

    We have been to Granville Island many times but never knew that the hotel was there. Walking into the dining room was a lovely surprise. So beautiful and terrific views! Chairs were comfortable. Our server, Kylie, was wonderful and fun to be with. We lucked into the Dine-out Vancouver menu. Great price! $60 got us carpaccio, game hen and a sticky pudding dessert. All in all, a great evening!

    The lunch menu has changed with less plant-based options. A simple green salad with an oil and vinegar dressing would be nice. The salad selections were too rich even for my non plant-based friend. My friend felt that there were too many items with cheese or rich sauces. Service and ambiance was good. It's a beautiful location and we often take out of town guests, and the food has always been good. I will go back, but will check the menu on line first.

    I was very impressed by the diverse menu. We shared the white salad and the scallops which was delectable on its own! We then decided to share a plate of the sablefish with a spiced lentil and chopped vegetable side that melted in your mouth with an explosion of flavor. The wine list was tasteful and varied with wine by the glass as well as by the bottle. Wonderful service and ambiance tucked away in South False Creek with a view of the City lights.

    A few breakfast like items on lunch menu would be nice. New menu is better but may need practice/reworking Such a great space with all the windows. Nice to be back. Everybody was happy but thought it too expensive. Sticky toffee shared dessert was a hit. Bathroom door not wheelchair friendly…got trapped!

    Had an after Christmas dinner with three friends on the 29th of December. Place was still decorated for the season, so it was a nice atmosphere. We had some wine, appetizers; (recommend the beef carpaccio) & dinner. Our server was friendly and engaged us throughout the evening and did a great job. We will definitely be back soon!

    Not great. Server wasn’t good. In a rush. No attention to service. Just get us in and out. Food ok. Asked for sausages well done. Came warm. Not as I asked. Toast was really warm bread. You have a great location going for you but will pass along avoid for brunch

    Our stay was pleasant and we were well looked after. The view was about a good as it gets (water, boats bridge and mountains). All in all a terrific place to stay when in Vancouver. Having Granville Island market a mere 5mins away on foot lends to a surreal place to be a part of in a busy city. This is my home away from home. Sam Abraham
