Myself and a group of friends went here for dinner on a Friday night and while the ambiance had us feeling like we were in some small town airport lounge, the food and service definitely exceeded the presumed expectation that the bland aesthetics had set. The menu suggest family sharing style and the portions were generous and everyone left feeling very satisfied. The salmon and steak were the predominant entrees ordered and were both flavorful and cooked to perfection!

Good food that was fresh. service was excellent. The restaurant is to the side of the hotel lobby and can seem a little on the canteen side. But considering it’s in the hotel I looked past that. Alcohol was a little expensive but it is Vancouver. Overall quality rather than quantity but I would not hesitate to return.

I don't normally go for restaurants in hotels (unless I'm forced and I hadn't realized this was such a restaurant) but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent. The service was great. It's too open a space though. Would like to see more of a divider from the hotel lobby (which was very cold) and the washroom was quite far away.

The Christmas special was pretty alright. Ribeye tasted like I make at home, the appetizers were good as well but nothing over the top. Enjoyed the beet salad. The Caesar could use some work.

The Christmas dinner was absolutely wonderful and the shared plating was perfect for the family. Definitely recommend for fine dining without an overkill price tag.

Had a nice lunch with a friend - we both agreed that the food was lacking salt - that said, I'm writing to give future diners a heads-up - the Westcoast Seafood Chowder is a cream soup, not a thick chowder. I waded through a large bowl of warm (not hot) cream with a few bits of seafood and two tiny pieces of potato. Tasty (once I added salt), but not quite what I expected. Also, as an side, chefs need to really give a second thought to putting shells in a cream soup - it's just a mess getting them out.

Waiter was incredibly rude. When one meal was brought out not as requested, waiter blamed the customer for not being clear (she was perfectly clear) and when he brought the meal back (still not right, but closer) he literally threw it in front of her and said "here". Then did not come back a single time to see how our food was.

My meal was also incorrect, but he blamed the kitchen for that and had it replaced very promptly.

Went on Sunday at 11am for brunch buffet, should’ve looked a bit into it as it ended at 11! This is definitely my own fault for not pre checking just assumed a breakfast/brunch would go till 12-1. Had the avocado toast and the pulled Pork Benny with my partner and it was unreal ! Great food and service when we went, almost thankful that we missed the buffet as these meals were really great.

The meals for 6 of 7 guests were outstanding. A steak (ordered as rare) came back medium-well to well done.

And although the restaurant was not at all busy, our server seemed more interested in conversing, flirting or otherwise engaging with the four individuals at a table next door rather than taking our initial orders and getting the evening underway.

The food and service at Showcase is consistently good. What is not good is the music - this is a place for business people to have lunch. Nobody wants to have loud thumping bass making it impossible to hear your table mates. It seems something has changed as I noticed this issue and reported it to the manager. I went back yesterday and it was the same. I won't be back.

As per usual, the food and service were good. But someone seriously needs to look at the choice of music as this time it was different than before. Who would think that music with a heavy bass beat would be suitable for an establishment that caters to lunch for business people? I'll probably go back again, but if the environment doesn't improve, I'll find a different location.

My server was Chris T and the service was the worst that I have ever experienced at Showcase!!! He would disappear for long stretches and not take my order, or refill beverages or even bring the bill for payment. It was so bad that another patron commented about it without my prompting them.

Overall, a good choice for a hotel restaurant. Unique and tasty food preparation, especially some of the appetizers. Unfortunately some of the mains we're not quite as good (undercooked risotto, dry salmon). Would recommend appetizers: gnocchi, kale+quinoa, and eggplant dip.

I'm a frequent customer at Showcase. Consistently good service and the food is usually exception. My guest and I both had the cobb salad. And to be honest, I was underwhelmed. I'm frequently accustomed to exception food here but the salad didn't meet expectations. The salmon was quite good but the salad itself was smaller than anticipated and a bit thin and limp. Sorry you missed the mark with me this time.
