I was disappointed with where we were seated.
I brought a very dear friend to celebrate her 87th birthday. We were seated in the bar!!!
I’m not sure why I didn’t say anything but when they first seated us in a very tight corner of the bar, I asked to move by the window....not thinking it would have been lovely on the other part of the restaurant or there looked like a sun room or a light area looking outside at the grounds...very disappointing.
Service in the bar was poor...and the French toast with a small portion of fruit compote...for 14...it was ok...
Went for “dine the Couve month” beautiful building, our first time there, the wait staff were very polite and quickly served us although the place was not full (Friday 5.30pm). One of the dessert options on the dine the couve menu was not available but they gave us a couple of other options. The food was served quickly and was very tasty.
Had a wonderful Sunday lunch there. The food was well presented and very good. Our only complaint was that it was cool inside. The ladies wish they had brought a jacket.
Loved to old building.
Food and service was great! My friend was visiting from LA and loves the French toast!
Great happy hour on porch, on a warm September night. Dinner inside was great, historic ambiance was cool.
Great place for a friends get together. Quiet, so easy to chat. No pressure put on us to hurry through anything and the service was outstanding!
Great experience! Service was fantastic. The manager, bartender, waiter was a hoot. The rain move in and they accommodated. We will he back for sure!
Fun place with tons of history. Went for long over due Sunday brunch date with my husband. I did not like our seat and they wouldnt let us move even though they had several non reserved tables open... which was disappointing. I asked for a 'quiet secluded window table if possible' when I made my reservation. We ended up being seated right at the door to the dining room, with people bumping our elbows and table when they come and go. At least 7 tables were available that were not in the center of action but she would not let is move. Husbands food was excellent. He had the country fried steak and loved it. between 1 and 10 he would rate it a 7. I ordered french toast. Great flavor but the bread was over 2 inches thick so be prepared to eat a lot of bread with the French toast. I would rate the French toast a 5. This place was fun and has a lot of history. They give you a self guided tour sheet that explains the house and some of it's unique features. It's a must see for tourists.
Just the best brunch spot. Period!
The bartender/manager is fantastic. He remembered us from last time. Maria was our server again. We really enjoyed our visit. Food is fantastic and the atmosphere is wonderful. We sat outside this time. It was great. Thank you!💓💓
nice setting, good food and service for a quiet dinner
The seating on the front porch was enjoyable. There is a nice overhang that blocks direct sun, but is wide open to the parade grounds. We ordered smoked trout hash and chicken he contributed to a very nice dining experience.
Maria was an awesome server!
We were very diapointed in the menu at Grant House! We should have looked at that before making reservations! The last time we were there, we had quiche and bread pudding. There certainly was nothing like that on this menu! The table behind us wanted the black bean burger. They were OUT OF IT at 12:00! Unexceptable! For the prices charged, I think you could have a better menu! We didn’t stay! We went somewhere to have a decent meal.
Afrewards, we stopped to visit friends and talked about our experience. They had been at Grant House with friends one evening, and had “the worst service and a terrible meal. They went home afterwards and fixed something to eat.
It’s a shame such a pleasant setting is getting a terrible repetition, both in service and food. I previously had been there for lunches and tea luncheons that were wonderful. I’ll not go back again until improvements are made.
Seating in the bar is like sitting in a timeless, relaxed study. Great for a business lunch or afternoon cocktails. Comfortable chairs and unique copper topped tables. Ties to the historic feel of the location. Bar staff are attentive without being unnecessarily present. Salads are perfectly dressed and balanced for a delicious light lunch.
Friendly staff and great food in a little bit of history
We came to Grant House to celebrate our 46th anniversary. We sat outside to enjoy the view and weather, food was delicious and unique, the chocolate mousse cake was the perfect finish to our meal. The person that waited on us was the best: kind, calm, not rushed, was available but gave us our space.
The Eatery at Grant House is in transition right now. There is a new chef, new servers, and new manager. Service was slow (understaffed), chef hasn’t found his stride yet, but the manager recognized the issues and was on top of the situation. For years the Grant House has been designated as a great dining destination. I’m sure the issues will be worked out. Kaci (manager) is very proactive. We will be back. The food eventually was very good.
Beautiful setting. We sat outside for lunch on a lovely summer day. Only complaint was the airport noise. Nice selection of food choices. Lunch was really not equivalent to the setting, but the dessert was excellent. Would like to try an evening meal.
Been there several times. Summer deck dining the Best! I’m 27 year retired military so the view of parade field and the landscaping are fantastic. Could expand the menu some!! The hanger steak was good and replaced by Ulysees , also good, but why not both? More like almond chicken breast and shrimp and scallop meals, maybe added. The Maryhill wine there now, good! The gal hostess was great! We enjoy it there!
It's pleasant to sit outside on a nice sunny day. It's very quiet place. The food is great, and they have vegetarian options.
Perfect for a nice lunch with my team. The outdoor patio setting was ideal, and the service was fantasic (thanks, Dylan!). We enjoyed a tasty lunch and dessert. The only drawback was limited food options for the vegetarian on our team, but she was still happy with her entree.
The restaurant was as expected a lovely fine dining establishment. The food was well presented, the service was attentive.
Very nice. Good food and good service. Love the area, such good views.
Our food was fantastic and our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt. We sat outside on the veranda and had a lovely lunch.
There was no dressing on the ceasar salad, had to ask for two extra bowls. It was so dry I thoguht they totally forgot to put ANY on the salad. Portion sizes are very small especially biscuits and gravy, the sausage ordered was a patty and not links, and the biscuit was hard. The eggs bemedict egg was hard boiled and not cooked properly. A total disappointment
Great food and feel for the place. Had a good order messed up but the staff took care of it quickly and we had a great lunch. We will be back.
Had an excellent Sunday brunch here. Wonderful outdoor dining, excellent menu.
Yes with the following caveats. French Toast was good but too big and crusty. Smoke Trout Hash was excellent but would like a little more trout. Chicken and Waffles were great. As for service, took a while to be waited on even for water. After receiving our drinks, she never checked back on us to see that she brought the wrong coffee drink until the meal arrived. I ordered a Bloody Mary, she asked me what brand of vodka I wanted, not saying it would be extra. When the bill came, the menu vodka was 9.00 but my charge total 13.00. She didn’t really explain why very well and the check showed 11.00 for vodka and 3.00 for Bloody Mar mix. She did offer to do something but just decided not to return. Thanks
I think the ambiance goes a long way here. I think the food--cheeseburgers and the meat platter were good but not outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant for the fact that it is in a great location and has wonderful historical significance. The food has improved since being there last July 2018, and that's good news! I think the effort should be in perfecting the menu and making a higher level of food quality to match the ambiance/location.
I loved the whole experience! We happened to get there on a Friday night where they have live music from 3-6pm. It was very good. The food was amazing and worth the cost! All was fresh and prepared by their own chef. The steak and salmon were tender and savory and the hummus! They had the most delicious pitas with the best hummus I ever had. The artichokes, veggies and cheese were great additions. The loose tea was top quality. The self guided tour was a great idea! I wasn't intrigued by the ghost story, but otherwise, loved the history and important details that were highlighted.
I understand the menu changes regularly and would love the opportunity to check it out again!
Great service! We only had some appetizers but they were good!
Gorgeous setting and attentive staff. I greatly appreciate a place that has some taste and serves chilled water without ice - thank you! Tuna sandwich was really under seasoned, however.
We have been to brunch here on the weekends and really LOVED it - but the lunch selections were not very interesting and, in some cases, not well executed. The reubens were dry and didn't have much meat and the salads were dressed so lightly that one had to search for a bite with any hint of dressing. Several salads had items that were described on the menu but left off of the salads when they came.
This is one of two brunch places I like to visit when in Vancouver. This time, my friend ordered the chicken fried steak, and I had the avocado toast with a side of bacon. The chicken fried steak was served with a biscuit, and presented in a small cast iron skillet. I was surprised that it did not come with hash browns, but there was probably only room for the steak, biscuit, and gravy. I think I would have served the biscuit on the side with jam along with a little fruit. Also, my avocado toast would have been lonely without the bacon, which was laid across the top and also (unfortunately) drizzled with balsamic. It was a large plate for a single large toast. I think two smaller pieces with a little fruit on the side would have been a better presentation. Still, the service was sunny, and the food tasty. We love this venue and will return.
Great food, great service in an historical building. Not sure I rated the noise level accurately. It's a quiet place.
Initial server made experience awkward with sarcasm. One item ordered was not made correctly (missing crucial part) and we weren't offered compensation.
I am sorry that you had a less then enjoyable time with us. I would like to speak to you more about your recent experience with us. Please contact me directly at email@example.com . Thank you in advance
So lovely to be where the Grant House is located. New menu and new employees. Great service and the food was deliscious.
Thank you Leslie, See you again soon
Grant House not only managed to present a meal option for a "no salt" member of the party, but also for a "no sugar" member, while satisfying the two carnivores. Service was very prompt for a Sunday brunch with many diners outside. Food was excellent, one member stated best waffle she has ever had.
That was amazing!!! Great service, food and setting. The only downside was not seeing the owner I went to high school with. Super job Scott!!
