This was a birthday brunch and everyone enjoyed their choice of food. We were a bit late for brunch so buffet was closing within 20 minutes of arriving but one of our party went for it anyway. Definitely got his monies worth. Wished it was open a little longer but you snooze you lose. Should have made an earlier reservation. The Salmon Benny, the Croque Madame was a different version but excellent, the healthy breakfast with Avocado toast and two poached eggs was great, anything with avocado is bound to please.

It was nice and quiet. Good for business meeting. But I was very disappointed with my warm kale salad. It was way too salty and I didn’t even finish half.

We each had three course meals, and we varied them so as to not duplicate the dishes. I like too cook and have for years, but each of our dishes from appetizer to main to dessert was extrodinary and unique. However it was the service that I will remember. We felt so looked after by our server. She was so professional and so friendly. Her recommendations were accepted, and we just had a splendid evening at Hendricks.

We were looking for a light dinner and found exactly what we were looking for. The Falafel sliders and flatbread pizza were well presented and delicious. Service was great and we enjoyed the guitar music.

Delicious food, and good place especially for a hotel restaurant. Unfortunately the half-halibut was a tiny portion and not quite satisfying.

Restaurant is part of the lobby bar in the Westin Hotel across from the main Library on Robson. The menu was simple but the dood was prepared well and well portion. Our waiter was personable and prompt with eating tips around Vancouver while keeping our glasses filled. I’d go there again.

For a hotel lobby restaurant, it had some very unique offerings and was very good. We had the breakfast buffet several days and it was fine. The 2 types of scrambled eggs were very good for a buffet and had some very good sausages. We had dinner one night and were rushed going to a play but our server was great in recommending the fastest foods to get us fed and out the door quickly and each choice was great, the seafood pasta was really amazing and fast. Great service and nice atmosphere.

Made reservations online for me and my boyfriend., And was only offered a table in the bar where it was very noisy. When I asked if we could have a quieter table somewhere else I was told that was all they had. The reason being we were just a party of two. 10 minutes later I watched a couple come in and sit at a table for four. And I wondered why they got a bigger table in a quieter area than we did when we arrived there first. Would not recommend this restaurant to my friends or family.

Nothing short of amazing and an experience that I would not expect from a High End Hotel Restaurant. Am already recommending it to friends as it was recommended to me. A great place to meet for a pre -performance drink and bite to eat. I also noticed that on Saturday there was a DJ on hand!

Great little place to eat or grab a bevy. Was super busy as concert night...way understaffed. The staff they had (2) waiters did the best they could but a dj playing ...too noisy...not a dance place..money could have been spent on an extra server. Food was excellent

Wife and I went for dinner. I had West Coast Salmon salad and the salmon was extremely over cooked. Rest of salad was bland and flavourless. Appetizers were good and wife had braised short rib, which was cooked to perfection but lacked flavour. Overall the food was okay but for the prices I wouldn’t give it a shot given how many great options there are in Vancouver.

I had lunch there and ordered the reuben panini. It was probably one of the best reubens I've had, and I've tried many different reubens. My friend had the award-winning burger, and he thought it lived up to its billing. I will be back to try some of their other items. Food was delicious, and service was impeccable. The waiter was super friendly and knew what he was doing.

Server was very short with us, food and ambiance was incredible, and I would highly recommend as a spot to go grab drinks. However, although the food was worth the wait, it took FOREVER to make. It took 45 minutes just to make our appetizer, which was a bread/hummus plate. And this was before the dinner rush when no one was in the restaurant! While overall the experience was good, our server was very rude and snappy and forgot about us very often, my mother had to get up from the table and go get him just to order drinks. All other employees we interacted with were very kind and helpful.

We made a reservation for Christmas Evening for one of the only 2 time slots available which was 8PM. Upon arrival, the pleasant Maître d'hotel suggested we try the Christmas Menu that everyone was "raving about". We ordered that for me and simply a Tuna Poke for my husband who has a small appetite. The waiter returned quickly to bring us our glasses of wine and inform us that they had run out of the Christmas special. I ordered the "line-caught" salmon from the menu. It was dry and overcooked, the Brussels sprouts (all 3 of them) were uncored, unscored, undercooked, and too tough to cut even with a knife. The salmon was lying on an uninspired layer of cafeteria-style mashed potatoes under which I found one green bean. The Maître d'hotel was apologetic. We ordered a "Schwartzwald Brownie" and a Lemon Pavlova for dessert. The tiny brownie was, well, a brownie and 2 square inches (for $13). The ""Pavlova" was not a Pavlova but simply 2 slices of stale meringue floating in what seemed to be 2 tablespoons of lemon curd. the wine list was pricy ($13 for 6oz of a NZ Sauvignon Blanc) and was mainly composed of BC wines. No French wines at all. thewaiter was neither helpful or particularly attentive. I can recommend the Tuna Poke which was very good.

Great food, friendly food, but the meal took too long to prepare. One hour for a classic signature brunch (toasts, eggs, hams) to be served is way too long.

Find somewhere else sorry. So understaffed. Got order wrong 5 times. 4 drinks. 1 food. No one apologized or stopped by. Had to flag down people to get help. Never sorry just laugh and got man bartender doesnt read orders. Wasted 4 alcholic drinks how many times that happens. It was so load in the room also. For a branded hotel was far from up to par. But reading other reviews it is a common thing. Good luck .

Service was outstanding. The food we had was not the usual type of food you would see on menus but we loved it. The dessert was just ok and hence brought the score overall down

I made reservations for three of us prior to a show at the Orpheum on December 3rd. There was no host/ess at the reception area and someone from the hotel seated us. The waiter was not attentive and after 10 minutes or so as he was clearing off a table I requested service. He apologized but I found it odd there was only one waiter and he was clearing tables instead of taking our order.
