One of the best Chinese restaurants in Vancouver. This restaurant is the only one that can offer you an experience of real East meets West Chinese cuisine. They have traditional Chinese style dishes as well as fusion Chinese. My favorite dishes are the Fried rice in fish soup, the steam grouper, lobster mapo tofu and beef rib.

Poor service. Been at Mott 32 many times. Waiter poured half glasses of wine because that was what was left in the bottle according to him. It did not stop here...

Peking duck must get, needs preorder a day in advance. Dim sum more hit and miss. Great service and decor. Get a premium tea.

The service was terrible for a restaurant of this caliber. The drinks never came out on time. You had to repeatedly ask for a waiter. The food came out in the complete wrong order. It’s a wonderful setting and the food was good when it finally arrived but I would not recommend this if you’re looking for top-notch service.

It was so good! Since we had our wedding dinner here it's been almost two years, although the staff still remembers us as well as what dishes and cocktails we liked the most. We don't usually write reviews, but experience you get in more 32 is so exceptional, we hope everyone get to experience it.

Absolutely the best Chinese food I’ve ever eaten in my life. Short ribs and pork were to die for. Service excellent. Only negative was it was next to Trump Tower which I could not stand being anywhere near that TRUMP name.

First, despite boasting of its excellent service, no one came to speak with us for more than 20 minutes after we selected our choice of water. Then the food was mediocre at best; eg, the stir fry was oily and underseasoned. The chicken was also non-discript, and the cocktails were also below expectations. Overall, it was definitely not worth the cost.

The Service is definitely 5 stars . Everything is served family style, so we tried little bites of many different things. Sweet and sour pork was a huge hit as was the dinner dim sum. The smoked sea bass not as popular at our table. Next time we will try noodles or fried rice. The restaurant is nice, but not too stuffy. I will mention the service is really good.

Food was excellent but timing in the service extremely poor. Had preordered a Peking Duck that needs some time for preparation, announced 45mn, but came on the table only 30 minutes after our arrival in the restaurant, all together with the cocktails ordered as aperitif, and the starters, and the wine.
Had to send back the Peking Duck asking to keep it warm in order for us to have a chance to enjoy our aperitif, then the starters, in good order.
Obviously when time came to call for the reheated Peking Duck, it was ok but not as it is intended to be.
We let the Maître D know about this extremely poor timing. Reply was put on Chinese tradition which is to eat all dishes at the same time. May be right for fast food every day meal, but definitely false for high end meals as this Westernized restaurant intends to serve.
Manager, maître D, and waiters need a good refreshment from a culinary school to learn how to keep an eye on their customers experience and deal properly with a multi course service timing.

Extraordinary food. There is plenty of good dim sum and Chinese food in Vancouver, so the bar is high. But this is something special. Highly recommend you try duck, iberico pork, smoked cod, anything with truffles or black garlic.

We expected more elegant place.
Perhaps we are a bit old for this type of restaurant.
As for the food, overall it was too sweet.
However the steamed fish was very fresh and the meat was crunchy.
The girl who served us was so friendly and gave us the kind suggestions.

Solid wine list. Robert, the sommelier, really knows his stuff and helped us choose the perfect wine to go with dinner. Fantastic authentic Chinese fine dining: we asked our server to recommend every dish based on our preferences and each selection was great.

Peking Duck was very dry. Only the smoked cod was the best cuz there’s good flavors in it. If you want high class dim sum try Chef Tony in Richmond instead.

I loved this place! It was some of the best, authentic Chinese food I've ever had. Extensive menu, almost overwhelming, with many exotic choices. Our server was incredibly friendly and helpful - making excellent suggestions. All of them were delicious. Hard to choose a favorite.

Steamed buns with a flavorful pork filling. Dumplings with quail egg and black truffle on top.
It's pricey - but I'd definitely go back and recommend.

Was expecting the restaurant to be more formal but that is always a stretch to find in Vancouver. For a high cost restaurant, there was too many track pants. Great dynamic vibe otherwise.

However, it's a great restaurant, and the service was outstanding.

One of the best date night restaurants in Vancouver.

Every bite was perfect. We recommend the shortribs as well as the lobster dumplings. This is easily the best high-end Chinese food in Vancouver. Also, they have a great wine list and a nice selection of fresh cocktails.

We were in town off a cruise ship for a few days and looking for a great Chinese restaurant. Everything about our experience was fantastic. We weren’t quite sure about what to order and our server was extremely helpful. (And didn’t make us feel dumb) The atmosphere was really special. Such a beautiful restaurant. Very elegant and upscale but not stuffy in the least. Also our sommelier Mark was excellent! He made a perfect wine recommendation and was also a great resource for local travel advice. I’d highly recommend Mott 32

We were amazed at a restaurant with such a great reputation; would be so poor. The food was truly Ho Hum, and expensive. There were 3 parties with very young children running out of control all over the restaurant. The sever was good but he could not make up for the overall unsatisfactory experience

Terrible experience ( beside de amazing food and great service) me made a reservation at 9 pm without knowing that the kitchen staff leaves at 9:45. From the moment we arrived we were preassured to order the food because of the staff was leaving our dinner was rushed and uncomfortable. It a very nice place with a very high rate and the experience should worth it. It was disrespectful the fact that we had to dinner in 1 hour because the kitchen staff was leaving... we were expecting to have a good time. My suggestion is to let this know to your clients and if the staff will leave then don’t take reservations after 8pm, this kind of behavior is from a cheap restaurant liken P.F. Chang’s...
Hope you take this into consideration.

Wow. Just wow. The food was incredible. The Peking Duck is definitely worth the wait, be sure to call ahead to reserve one. We got lucky that they had one available. The dumplings are also amazing. The quail egg dumpling was the favorite of the table - unique and absolutely delicious. Excellent cocktails too. Exceptional old fashioned and some really brilliant unique cocktails as well. The ambiance was lovely, very quiet when we were there but it was midday on a Sunday so could be more boisterous on a weekend evening.

Be careful. 2 glasses of fair “house” wine was $90.00. They did not inform us of the price. Food was not worth the price also.
Beautiful restaurant but very noisy.
