Food can be a little bit more fancy. Soup was a little cold at serving. Otherwise Service was great!

Another excellent dining experience at the Holts Cafe. The food is aways great. Both our meals were cooked perfectly. Jessa, our server, was outstanding. She engaged in casual conversation, but was very attentive, and professional.

The dining room was busy throughout the whole time there, but the spacing in between the tables were sufficient, and the noise level was low enough that we could have a conversation.

I would definitely recommend and look forward to going back.

The food was mediocre at best. The server brought food to the table before our drinks. We had to ask for them and they still took another 5 minutes. We were having wine so this didn’t seem reasonable. They also called me 30 mins into my meal and asked if I was still coming yet the host took my name when we checked in. I’m not sure I’ll be back

Food & service was great. Hated the music choice and loud volume. It should have been classier and more subdued. Not relaxing at all.

I ordered the classic breakfast. Please change the bkft potato and salad.

The service and food was exceptional! I ordered the Duck confit brunch menu item with the fried egg and it was perfect! I loved it! I also got a mimosa and loved it as well. Very well done and would definitely come back.

The restaurant was great. grateful to have a nice place to sit and talk during this time. however, 2 out of my 5 reservation didn't show up and we did not all order meals. so next time, I will have to bring guests that will spend money on the food, tip enough and get rid of ones that don't show up.

While I realize afternoon tea is never a huge meal per se, I have never been for afternoon tea where there was not one fingerling sandwich. While the savouries were delicious, they were simply minuscule to the point of embarrassing, and definitely not good value for money. There are far better places in town with comparable or cheaper prices that do not compromise on quality or quantity. On a good note, the pasties were very good and plentiful, and the service was equally as good. However, I will not return, nor will I recommend it to others as the savouries are generally the highlight for me, and it was a big disappointment.

We had an enjoyable lunch with our son and daughter in law. I had the crispy chicken sandwich, Debi had a very generous chef salad, Jeff had a hamburger and Yvette had the daily fish plate. We all enjoyed our meals. Service was excellent. We had trouble accessing the parking because of all the construction in downtown Vancouver. Best to leave 15 minutes early if you are driving to Holt's.

Made a reservation but told there was now a special event so dining room closed !! Sat in the stark foyer . Had the short rib which was dry like old leather , sablefish was gray!! Never again . Too bad as it was a girlfriends birthday treat. Go to Nordstrom’s Instead!
