We had a great night at H Tasting Lounge. The overall service and food definitely exceeded our expectations. We ate off of the Dine out Vancouver menu and both of our selections were cooked perfectly and tasted great. The entire serving staff from the front end to the server and bar staff made us feel like special guests. Angelina, our server was very attentive and helped make our evening special. The live entertainment is also a very nice touch.
H Tasting Lounge has great cocktails and should not be missed.
I highly recommend H Tasting Lounge for dinner or just a cocktail or beverage with friends.

Dine out dinner. Overall very good experience. Just wish a bit more elaborate cuisine. It was tasty but maybe a bit too simple. Service was discret, efficient and relax. Very pleasant. Lots of space and intimacy.

Wonderful! We loved the decor and I had to have the High Tea experience. If you’re looking for an Instagram/Blogger experience, definitely put in the reservation request you’d like the carousel presentation as they only have so many! Great selection of teas and the bites were delicious. My partner ordered the crab beni (a Beni connoisseur) and I agree with her; It’s a must have. Fresh, crisp, and the hollandaise is perfectly seasoned. We might have to swing by again before we leave this vacation. Also, I put that it was for my birthday celebration and they so kindly brought out a dessert. Loved this place!

I was running 10minute late for my 12pm reservation so I had been calling the reception from 11:40am 5 times for 30minutes but no one was available on the phone. Maybe the call system is broken and someone should take a look! Everything else was great.

Everything started out great but as our experience progressed our group felt the service wasn’t very good. We requested two festive afternoon sea servings to share amongst 5 people but only received one wheel. When we asked if the wheel had two servings she said yes. We saw other tables that asked for two high teas and got two separate wheels. We also expected two candy floss trees. One per festive tea order. Again we asked and she said it was one per table even though again we saw other tables with more than one. We requested a second separately which should have been unnecessary.
We also asked for a bottle of rose champagne to go with our second tree of life. And the wrong bottle was brought out.
Our server said she would come back and take our group picture. Again never happened. We had to ask another guest to take our picture

She was nice and gave us each our own actual tea pots even though we only bought two high teas and didn’t charge us for it. That didn’t make up for our general overall experience.

Great ambiance and service. High tea was a nice experience however we sent back a dish which we were quite surprised at the quality, taste and texture of the crab Benny. The toast base was rock hard, taste of crab was minimum and the greens did not appear fresh. I rarely send a dish back however the dish was unfortunate with the way it was made and delivered to us. HLOUNG did offer to take the item off the cheque which was courteous of the restaurant to do so.

Indifferent servers all around.
Only time eye contact staff made with customers seated at bar was when they were asked for another drink. I experienced this treatment myself and witnessed it also.
Drinks not a bargain. Have had better service in dive bars. Not looking to be coddled by bartenders but being attentive to customers needing a drink is not an unrealistic expectation. Would never recommend this establishment. Go elsewhere. Spend elsewhere.

Went for high tea with my mom and my two young children (4 and 6). They were very accommodating and service was excellent. With the patio doors open, we had a superb view of the trees and water. Highly recommend. IMO the best high tea in Vancouver currently, taking into account creativity, value, ambience and service.

Lovely quiet lounge the night we were there with a great outdoor option. I loved the Clam tartine on sourdough with gruyere, pancetta, Manila clams and bechamel. The Crudo kanpachi with blood orange and halibut with yuzu vinaigrette were refreshing. The beef tartare with freshly shaved horseradish was delightfully good. We finished the meal with on the house caramelized white chocolate pots de creme - a smoked sage, chai marshmallow with housemade Graham crust... Yummm ... Our server Curtis is also so attentive to our needs... Thank you for a delightful evening!

My husband had heard about the fantastic cocktail program here so we thought we’d pop in for lunch on a weekday when it should be easier to get a spot. Well the place was empty — and on a gorgeous day too! We were given a fabulous corner table just beside the patio doors. Our server was lovely & attentive without rushing us at all. We each ordered a delicious cocktail and immediately wished we’d cabbed it over so that we could try others.
The food on the other hand was as not as good as we’d hoped. The chilled prawns we’ve certainly had better elsewhere.
Will defs be back for drinks & maybe more prawns but probably not for dinner.
