                                              My partner had an excellent dinner, the triple salmon entry. It was my dinner that didn't make the cut. I ordered the salmon feast bowl. The size of the bowl was excellent, and all the ingredients were good except COME ON, half a crab leg, I couldn't even taste it. But that isn't my complaint. The broth which I was looking forward to dipping my bread into was ghastly - so oversalted that unfortunately that was all you could taste was salt. I am a good home cook so I know what I'm talking about. I expected better from a dish costing $45. The reason that I didn't send it back was that I didn't really taste the broth til I had eaten most of the salmon/ shellfish etc Then it was too late to make a credible complaint. I will never order this dish again, and we might not return for awhile. That was the only complaint. the next question says would you recommend it, guardedly I would.

                                              Our experience at Salmon House on the Hill was great. From the attentive service to the food all went well. This was our first visit in about 15 years and it only reinforced the restaurants great reputation.

                                              We had an amazing mother's day dinner here. I made the reservation for around sunset time because the view at this restaurant is *incredible*. I didn't realize that the food would be just as impressive as the view. The service was excellent as well and very attentive. We're definitely coming back here and recommending Salmon House to family and friends.

                                              We went for Mother’s Day dinner. Our server was very attentive. The food was very disappointing. We opted for the steak and lobster and we could not even cut our meat. The kitchen confirmed it was a bad cut and refunded our money. Other meals were satisfactory.

                                              Another memorable evening at the Salmon House. Service attentive and accurate but not imposing. Restaurant quiet on the upper level so that conversation is not strained. And as always, the dishes divine.

                                              The Salmon House was suburb in its service and setting for a wonderful evening as a surprise birthday gift of appreciation to my wife. She truly enjoyed the tasteful meal, it's elegant presentation along with a wonderful cup of tea! Our server, Bea, graced us with her pleasant hospitality. Thanks!

                                              If you want a place where the vibe is warm, friendly, with a welcoming way; and where the diners are enjoying lots of good conversation around their tables - and where the VIEWS are amazing with food served up by waiters and staff that are clearly experience and well-training: then you are in for a wonderful dining experience. I've lived in Vancouver all my life, and have never been to this restaurant. That will change from this day forward! We are already planning our next evening out at the Salmon House on the Hill.

                                              A wonderful spot for dinner or brunch, especially if the weather cooperates for the views. Be selective with the menu. While my tenderloin with cheddar green onion mash and pecan onion relish was superb, my wife's salmon trio was lacking taste in the risotto and fish was overcooked. Service was excellent and dessert very good. Suggest the restaurant up its game with the wine list, especially by the glass, but it's still a very good spot. Hope to take in brunch again there soon.

                                              The food was too expensive compared to the quality. They cut the birthday cake and charge $3 per person. There were 8 of us, so we had to pay $24 and be careful before taking our order. We thought we only paid $3 for cake cutting. This is a complete rip-off. In addition, bread was an additional charge, and the tip was charged at a fixed rate of 18% with no choice. I don't want to come back to this overpriced restaurant. It didn't have the charm to keep customers coming back. I don't want to recommend it.

                                              I grew up in North/West Van and it has been DECADES since I went to the Salmon House - it is as good as ever... for my wife's birthday - all the tables have an incredible view. Halibut Special and mixed Salmon trio with the mixed appetizer let us share no less than 5 types of (alder) smoked fish - each dish perfectly prepared - balanced salt, pepper and seasoning - and the waiter timed everything without making us feel rushed or asking unnecessary questions.

                                              The Salmon House has been our favourite restaurant on the North Shore for about 50-years! However, as I mentioned to our waitress, now that society is reopening and accepting full sit-down dining, we think it is time the Salmon House brought back its winter/spring/fall 3-course special dinner features, especially during off-peak times. We also miss the wrapped candies at reception on departures. Also, the Restaurant should be paying for the topping or removal of the scrub, alder, weed trees that are now impacting the views of the water from the restaurant. Cheers....Rob & Val
