Went for high tea. I think the waitress was new as she was uncertain about things and also assumed things well though I'm sure she tried her best. I think I'd go elsewhere for high tea in the future.

A little noisy where we were seated so we asked to be relocated. Better

Food was good, service was really good from our server who took over the table. He was great with Rylan

The ambiance is great. Our waiter was polite. I would definitely NOT order the Elizabeth Caesar again 'cos the dressing was way too salty and there was so much dressing that the leaves were drenched and became very soggy. The rest of the food was pretty good, so definitely worth a return trip.

The staff was definitely under the gun as we (along with the rest of the hotel) were grabbing food & beverages prior to the Queen concert at Roger's Arena down the road. Party of 2 with reservations we gave up our table in lieu of sitting at the bar top, best decision ever. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable with great recommendations. Kitchen was accommodating when we noted a dairy allergy (I know... I know). Scallops were FANTASTIC & Jim's salmon was beyond great as well. I would highly recommend this spot and plan to dine again the next time we head up north of the border!!!

I have been to Honey Salt many times, but the last time I went the food wasn’t that great. The portions are definitely a lot smaller compared to before and the sable fish I ordered had one piece of bone in it. If I haven’t caught it, I could choke to death. The Tofino fry we usually order decreased by half portion-wise. What made my experience great this time was our server and definitely NOT the food. She was so attentive and provided us great service. She always had a smiley face on. It is unfortunate the food wasn’t great. It will be our last time.

Unfortunately the poor service made us feel as if we paid too much for the delicious food. Our server had no personality, our drinks took 10 minutes to arrive and our server came to take our meal order before even bringing our drinks and offered no apology for the delay. It was difficult to get her attention and we left feeling unhappy. The food was, however, delicious, albeit expensive.

Paul McCartney was playing at BC Place and the I believe that's why the restaurant was packed and so loud. Everyone excited about a great meal and a great concert to come. Our waitress was very friendly but honestly, run off her feet. The food came out pretty quickly and as always, tasted fantastic. In fact, my husband asked the waitress to tell the chef it was the best sablefish he had ever had.

I had the scallops - I always do. Can't get enough of a good thing but this time, I saved room for dessert. It was the carrot cake and I've included a photo of my little piece of heaven!

I make my own cosmo's at home but I have to say, the one at Honey Salt is better and I tweaked my recipe to match theirs. Yum yum!

It's worth trying once for the beautiful decor and pleasant atmosphere. They say that first impressions are everything and it is definitely true here. My husband and I came for Canada Day brunch with decent expectations considering it's a $40 per person kind of venue. As we approached the reception we were neither greeted with warmth nor welcome. In fact, we weren't greeted at all. The lady on the computer did not make eye contact upon our approach. We waited patiently for her to finally looked up, completely expressionless, and unfortunately there was no redeeming interaction with her thereafter. For the rest of the experience, the food was as expected (neither bad nor amazing), and the service at the table was also as expected... Overall I'd still gave the experience a 4/5 because it is what it is - a great instagram experience with decent food and service. Nothing amazing but not bad either. I'd probably go again with the girls for the same purpose.

Booked a high tea appt to celebrate the end-of-the-school year for our young daughters and the food was mostly savory and enjoyable in little bits and bites as expected -- both kids and adults stayed surprisingly full for a long time afterwards. The scones and chocolate bouchons were favorites at our table -- and we we kind of regretted not saving more room for the crepes which were delicious, moist, and packed with fillings and toppings. Although refreshing, the "mini"-market veggies didn't seem to match the description and seemed a bit pricey (tbh) vs the normal false creek tier.

The dining area is very nicely decorated and inviting and relaxing -- our server (didn't catch his name but he wore rose-pink glasses) was great with the kids and we want to thank him for that!

Overall a very nice experience for us. We would probably come back if we can to celebrate another special occasion.

Classy casual bar. Just had a bite and drink at the bar on my own but had a great time. Ash and the bartender were really fun. Made me feel like I was out with friends. Had a great salad... tabooli? (Forgive spelling) and they had my favorite wine. I will be back.

I was looking forward to experiencing the tea service and made a reservation online for 11:15am from the tea menu webpage. Turns out the tea service doesn't start until 3pm. This is not obvious when making a reservation and we were disappointed.

We stayed for brunch and the food was mediocre. The rolling cesar bar looked good, but it never made it to our table during our time at the restaurant.

I did have the crab omelette. Which was delicious. But I wasn’t really inspired by anything else on the menu

We were in town for two nights and made a reservation here because websight looked very appealing. Drove 20 minutes from hotel and were seated in outdoor section. Sat there for well over 10 minutes, servers walked by us, no eye contact, no one approached our table. Servers would take a look at outside section, then turn around and go back inside! Nothing!!!!!! Table next to us was approached by a server and chatted with them for 5-6 minutes.
I’ve never been treated so poorly and disrespectfully at a restaurant EVER!!!! Ended up at Joeys Downtown and had a fabulous experience.
Don’t waste your time at Honey and Salt.

This is one of the few times I have been compelled to write a negative review - I typically only write when the service/experience was above and beyond or when I have been very disappointed. I had dinner at Honey Salt last Saturday around 8pm. I have been to the restaurant before and enjoyed the food and appreciated the service - this time around the service was so poor I will likely not return and would not recommend the restaurant to others. As an avid traveler for work and pleasure, a certain level of service is expected at a hotel/entertainment center like Parq and I experienced nothing of sort. The server yawned while taking my order - was very unenthusiastic, almost annoyed given we were one of the few tables of two. The incorrect wine was brought to the table - when he was corrected - there was no apology and out appies appeared before our drinks did. The server did not come over to ask how the food was and barely refilled our water. He did not ask how the main course was and didn't ask whether I wanted more wine. He avoided our table and I had to flag down other staff to clear our table and give us our bill. I would have been more lenient if it had not been so highly regarded. Often the service experience will determine repeat business ... my guest and I decided that the trouble wasn't worth it and did not order dessert or more drinks. Sure this loss of business will hardly have an impact on the bottom line but did force me to write a review. The manager did come to the table to try to remedy the situation and offered 20% off our bill - for me, although the gesture was appreciated, it was more about voicing my frustration - Saturday nights are often a chance to unwind after a stressful work week ... this one left a sour taste for this particular establishment.
