    The food was really good! Our poor server was legit running around all evening. It was incredibly loud, we asked to be moved to the patio so we could hear each other speak. A little weird, the interior of the restaurant did match the food - I felt under dressed but also was out for bbq.

    We were really looking forward to brunch. The website is unclear on when the Buffet is actually offered so we were disappointed when it wasn’t set up. The menu selection is very limited from 12 to 2 PM, especially for vegetarians. Our food came out cold.

    Couldn’t believe how disappointing this experience was. The waitress was very slow and hardly paid us any attention through the night. Ordered a coffee which looked more like tea it was so weak and eventually had to ask a different waiter to make me a new one which he begrudgingly did. When our food order came out we ordered the ribs and chicken combo with waffle chips and veg. The ribs were so tough and so overdone it was barely edible. the chicken was dry, the sauces were squeezed out of a bottle. the chips were super oily, were not fresh and you could tell that they were frozen. Overall really terrible experience and would not recommend this place to anyone or go back.

    We had the best meal and service here for our wedding anniversary. They made us feel so special from the moment we arrived and our server was so helpful and friendly with his recommendations. The meat was tender, well flavored and we loved the side options with the Meat Sweats for 2. We had no idea there was even live music on Fridays and sitting outside under patio lights with a band made for the perfect date night. The tap list here is awesome for local beers and I appreciate that they also had a variety of non alcoholic options as my partner doesn’t drink. The manager even came over to ensure we were having a great experience and to acknowledge our anniversary, plus they gave us a free dessert. Would come back here in a heartbeat for quality barbecue, a beautiful setting and five star service.

    Loud cafeteria style establishment that was a bit of a surprise being attached to the Westin Busy night and the service started slow, but picked up. Luke warm poorly seasoned “Meat Experience Platter” I Love BBQ, but honestly this was very poor. Only one sauce offered and trust me, it needed a sauce for every bite to have any taste. Lots of meat, small sides, no value unless you just like to be filled up on bland BBQ.

    Took my girlfriend her for her birthday. When I made the reservation, I made a special request to have a photo of Brendan Fraser from The Mummy on the table with Happy Birthday written on it. They did it. It was a really great way to start our evening. We were so thrilled. The serves was great. The drinks were delicious. The food was very good. Don’t skip on the cornbread and baked beans.

    Grabbed a bite before going to Theatre Under the Stars. Complicated and confusing getting parking instructions - that was messy, but then everything else was great. Our first time here. Was able to get a couple happy hour items under the wire then a couple main dishes. Food, service and setting were great (would love a view of Coal Harbour over the tarped-in pool, but it was fine for a casual meal).

    Terrible I made reservations on there website just to find out in morning of our dinner that they are closed for business and no call from them to inform me. When I called they inquire your call put me on hold while serving someone else and I can hear her taking food order I am not sure who owns this place but don’t expect to be around that long like this.

    We made reservations on August 19th and we will definitely be back! Great food, service and entertainment. The yam fries appetizer was tasty. Main course salmon was cooked perfectly. Service was exceptional, from front desk hostess to the person who brought out our food. Our main server was polite and friendly too! And the live entertainment was Amazing!! Look forward to visiting again.

    The bbq platter we received was dry, bland and cold. The 3 sides - the cornbread was dry and hard, the mac and cheese was so so, we opted for a small salad what came was a old wilted salad in a small bowl. Even our appie - the tortilla chips were stale.

    We had just come from the H Tasting Bar happy hour which has amazing service and amazing happy hour. We went over to H2 and our server was void of all personality until it was time to get her tip. Service was pretty slow. Our “hot” food was cold. Not room temp….cold! We did enjoy being outside near the pool. And the live entertainment would probably have been good but we didn’t want to stay any longer.

    Very nice outside area with heaters for cooler nights. There are also lounge chairs with fire pits where you can enjoy the view with a nice cup of coffee. Service was good. Not too many plant base options but the server was able to accommodate us! S’mores dessert was to die for.

    The noise level was rather high, kids running around and parents were more concerned with drinking than wa to their kids. This is not an environment for minors and inappropriate. This made it difficult to enjoy our visit and time.

    We decided to try H2 because I saw an influencer on TikTok advertise the menu. I can’t remember which influencer it was though. When seated, the table wasn’t completely wiped down so I got some mushed berries on my shirt. The person waiting on us was helpful and even offered a dessert on the house to fix it. Which was greatly appreciated. The food was good although the corn bread was quite dry. I had the beef brisket (delicious) with waffle fries and corn bread. My husband had the prawn/chorizo skewers and a Caesar salad. He seemed to enjoy his dinner. The peach cobbler was delicious. We’ll try it again. Hopefully the service will be a bit better. We figured they may have been short staffed or something because it seemed to take a long while for the staff to come around to check on us.

    Our party of three had a leisurely meal next to a large window overlooking the beautiful vista of the patio, pool, Coal Harbour and Stanley Park. The meals were scrumptious and the server was knowledgeable, attentive and very friendly…exchanging light banter with us. We appreciate him taking our photo. Being disabled, I really appreciated how accommodating he was. Great experience and fabulous food.
