Food was great but unfortunately there is a construction going on so it was very noisy.

Amazing food! The best seafood I’ve ever eaten! I will be back for sure!
Our waitress was wonderful! Even though we went during brunch hours & had a limited appie menu, she was kind enough to ask the kitchen if we would be able to have some from the regular menu, which they complied. My friend & I were overjoyed. Thank you for such an awesome experience😃

As usual very good food. Ambience was somewhat disturbed by crying child which seemed to go on for ever, but not anything restaurant could do about it. Just thankful I am past the crying baby stage!!
I did request a coffee refill which I didn’t bother with in the end. I asked gal cleaning the table but I don’t think she passed this on to my server. Otherwise very good service.

Food was delicious and the restaurant was clean. Service wasn’t the best because the waitress couldn’t understand what I was saying and we had several miscommunications during my order.

Overall this was a great experience at dine out. It was a little busy so service was spotty at times but the food was an excellent value. The portions were generous and ambiance was quiet for conversation. The regular happy hour menu (from 11am until 11pm) will likely bring us back along with the food and value.

First time we tried it - absolutely wonderful. The fillet and prawns were outstanding, the fillet cut like butter and taste fabulous. Our server, and I’m sorry I didn’t get her name hard to hear through the mask, was very attentive, great suggestions. Nice surprise having the parking taken off the bill.

We have eaten several times at the Pinnacle Lobby restaurant and it has been great every time.

My wife and I recently had the Crab cake Eggs Benedict and it was fantastic - lots of crab - perfectly cooked eggs. We both loved it.

The next evening we decided to try the Dine out Vancouver 3 course menu. My wife ordered the wagyu beef carpaccio, Ahi Tuna and crème Brule combo and it was delicious. She especially loved the carpaccio - large portion.

I would have ordered that but the special was prime rib with Yorkshire pudding - I had to have it. Cooked perfectly, juicy and not too fatty as some are. The high lite was all bottled wines were half price so we chose a more expensive Californian which was a delicious pairing. Tammy our server was great - knowledgeable and always close by if we needed anything. We'll be back.

We dined at the Lobby on a Saturday evening and chose the fixed price Dine-Out menu. We had goat cheese and beet salad (excellent), the duck l'orange (excellent) and the creme brûlée's (also excellent and very generous amount!). Service at the table was excellent but the kitchen was unacceptably slow. We promptly had water and our wine order delivered to our table after arriving but waited an unacceptable hour for our meal to arrive. The kitchen seemed to be very busy with take-out orders at the expense of the dine-in business. I have no idea if our experience is typical but I would not recommend anyone to dine at the Lobby on a Saturday evening because of the overwhelmed kitchen. Pity because the food was interesting, well prepared and nicely presented.

First visit here. The waitress and service were very good. When the food came - 2 sirloin steak dinners - it was VERY good - tasty, beautifully presented and an ample portion. Most unfortunately it was spoilt a bit by 2 noisy groups who arrived as we were finishing.

Came here for Dine out Vancouver with family and ended up leaving very happy.

From the dine out menu, we had the wagyu carpaccio and the octopus nicoise salad and that kicked it right off. The carpaccio with the crispy fried capers and truffle aioli was fragrant and mouth watering while the salad with the warm octopus was tender and refreshing yet not heavy.

Entrees came afterwards, which we had the ahi tuna and the short rib. The tuna was a good size portion that went well with the creamy mash and the short rib was moist and just fell apart.

We also ordered some crab cakes and yam fries from the a la carte menu and would have to say if you had to get something from the a la carte, get the crab cakes. They will put a smile on your face with the size and pure crab meat in there, probably the best you'll have in Vancouver.

Finishing the meal with dessert was a rich decadent chocolate cake and a classic creme brulee. If you want a heavier dessert, go for the cake in my opinion. Both would be good with coffee as a suggestion.

Expect to spend a good 1.5-2 hours here for a great dinner.

We were there because of Dine Out. We did order 2 Dine Out meals: 2 Wagu Beef which were really flavourful, fatty as it should be and with some drizzle of aoili and sprinkles of cheese (maybe parmesan?). Also ordered the Korean Short Rib which came with spicy noodle for my teen daughter; the rib was sweet but tasted boil the noodle though sweet, was a little too spicy even for me & we both do eat spicy from time to time. Duck a l' orange was disappointing as it also tasted like they had boiled it first and there was no char as I expect it would be. My daughter's chocolate cake was nothing to write home about and my Creme Brulee with the burnt sugar gave it a nice caramel on top of the creamy bottom. My husband and younger teen were glad that they went with burgers and fries and they were happy with their meals. I went to this restaurant on account of my friend saying the above dishes she had was great but after I checked notes with her, she said perhaps it depends if it is really busy and whether we did get the same chef. So thumbs up for her but not so for us. Also with regards to Covid and the restaurant environment, it was quite busy and I see that they do wipe the tops of the table but not the edges, nor the seats. There are dividers but we are otherwise fairly close together. I did ask to seat in the front area where it was not so busy but the hostess said that those were for walk-in customers??? Not sure if that made any sense! They do get a lot of Groupon people as they seem to ask everyone that question.

We dined for dine out. The food was just okay - quite strange flavour combinations! The restaurant is quite loud inside, and people had brought their large dog into the restaurant! The service was not bad, but not great either - they were bringing our main meals out before we had finished the entree. For the price of the meals, i think there are much nicer options in North Vancouver.

The Lobby at the Pinnacle Pier has got to be Vancouver’s best kept secret. The food is on par, if not better, than most fine dining restaurants in the city. Every time we go there is something new and sumptuous on the menu. An eclectic medley of North & South American, Pan Asian, Mediterranean, Indian, British dishes that blend harmoniously with my palate on any given time and day. The dining room and bar could be run-of-the-mill if it were not for the staff who take such good care of us, in no time we are family. Here also, our parking is paid for, a rare touch of hospitality to bid us farewell. There is Happy Hour, but as far as I’m concerned The Lobby is my Happy place.

We celebrated Valentine's Day and our 35th Anniversary with the Valentine's Day Special. The food was a good value and great tasting. We had the wine pairings to celebrate with the meal. The Sauteed Tiger Prawns were delicious. My husband got his prime rib just the way he loves it, rare. And the dessert was excellent. My meal was great also. The service was exceptional as always.
