Good for get together with friend
A delightful dinner at a beautiful venue to celebrate a special birthday milestone with family! Dinner was excellent, the choices were delicious and the portions were perfect!
Very good well prepared sea food. There are also steak and lamb options.
I was there 15 years ago and I wanted for my husband to discover it. The scenery was as spectacular as I remembered it. The ambiance was cosy and the service pleasant and efficient. The food was a little more then average. The overall experience was a definite high 4 out of 5.
I'm uncharacteristically motivated to leave a review. Three of the 5 of us had salmon and the sauce was overpoweringly salty and the fish was overcooked. Very disappointing. Our waiter did not come to check on us until we had essentially finished eating (there was over a 40 minute wait for our food to start which would have been fine if we had enjoyed the food). The waiter agreed with us he likes his salmon on the rare side not overcooked ... but we were not given the opportunity when ordering to specify how we would like the fish cooked. Where better to expect a really super piece of fish than the Salmon House??? Super disappointed.
Very polite and professional staff
The Salmon House is one of my favourite restaurants of all time. It has outstanding views of the ocean and sunsets to delight. The fine dining service and the excellent food are consistent. There are many wonderful seafood choices. Perfect for a date or gathering with family & friends. Plenty of room for special occasions.
I had phoned to be sure I got a booth. They told me to busy not available when we got there 10 minutes early. Sat us down a table beside the kitchen busy area and .a group party of 16. 15 minutes later 2nd booth was open and then 1 more. 1 appy was late 20 minutes as it went to wrong table. We were there for 3 hours but our driver was coffees out. Meal wasn't well for him. This was disappointing to me as I have being coming there for years
Go for the view but the value of food and service to the pricing is not good.
Excellent food and service, coupled with spectacular view and ambience...... makes for giving out-towners (in this case, from London, U.K.) a dining experience they'll long remember.
Wonderful view, good food and attentive service. Very nice venue for dinner with friends.
The view is fantastic and so is the food. The waiter and waitress were very attentive and pleasant. It's an upscale restaurant so the food isn't cheap but it's well worth it. I would recommend it to friends and family and can't wait to go back again.
We booked a table for my 50th Birthday, we requested a window table, but when we arrived we did not get a window table, it was later explained to us that these are for first come, first served...we waited a little too long for our waiter, for almost everything....whom ended up getting our order wrong - despite us discussing it with him indetail...this resulted in us having to wait over 30 minutes for our dinner, and he seemed a little too busy to give us much time during the evening...then some of our dishes that were given to us were dirty....but the dinner that finally came was nice, though the scallops were considerably smaller than what was described to us, but they were good...after dinner I talked to the the manager and she was very nice and bought us dessert and a bottle of wine for our trouble. I wish our experience was more special as it was a very important Birthday.
Great food. Incredible view of downtown.
Amazing oysters , the salmón trio was a great flight of the diferentes types of salmon.
The service was a 10+
I did enjoy myself, but for me, the food at this price did not really do it for me!
It was the 1st time going to the Salmon House and it won't be the last time that's for sure. We have been to many restaurants over the last number of years - The Cannery - was our all-time favourite place to go but since it closed we haven't been able to find a place that had the same atmosphere, service, class, superb food until now !!!! We will be back many, many times in the future.
Thank you so much for making this Birthday Celebration so Special.....Service, Food, Window Seats....just a superb Experience !!!
Sat in the lounge. Very quiet with an amazing view. Server and food were great.
Happy to be dining in this restaurant again. My first visit was 25 years ago and it was top notch. We came here again during my honeymoon trip. Food remains delicious, but my taste bud has definitely been spoiled after eating around the globe for 25 years.
We ordered a seafood tower and was regretted. I would rather pay more for a full dining experience as the main course became cold after we we finished the top two layers. I hope they could fine tune it or simply remove it from menu.
food is good and dessert is perfect
Fabulous view of all of Vancouver. Outstanding culinary expertise - every entre is amazing. As befits their name, they truly excel at salmon. Pricey but top notch. Early bird weekday deal is really worth checking out. .
Always love going to the Salmon House. Finally we got the window seating! The food was excellent, the staff wonderful as usual. I suggest the tower for 2. Great to try lots of seafood. This trip I had the salmon trio. It was really good.
Our experience was awesome!!
just lovely , our waiteresswas so lovely a great lady that helped me get a food that works with my allergy i will go back ... sable fish with qinua was so good
Valentine’s Day dinner
Restaurant busy, very good service and food was good but not great -mainly because some of the food that should have been cooked/warm was noticeably room temperature. We still enjoyed our visit
Great staff great food.
No one/no table is left behind of the magnificent sea view view given the stepwise restaurant layout.
Great great food...little slow on getting a new drink but the food was amazing. Not a huge salmon fan but loved every bite of it
We have never eaten at the Salmon House though we have considered it many times over the years. Thanks for a great evening from the moment we came through the door we were warmly greeted. Our waiter was excellent. We never felt rushed. Too bad you weren't closer to White Rock.
Been coming at least annually for ~40 years and never been disappointed.
Incomparable view and excellent service.
Last night of Dine Out Vancouver. We were disappointed in the lack of Vegetarian options on the menu. Previously there were a number of fish dishes to choose from but on Sunday night all but one of the seafood dishes had meat in them. Service was good but too fast. We were in and out within 75 minutes. We like to relax more.
I thought it was good but I felt it probably should have been in the $30 category instead of the $40 category.
Servings were quite small and I felt the appetizer choices could have been better. The salmon was delicious, but again, the entree serving was quite small. Dessert was delicious, but again, the servings were small.
Visited the restaurant during Vancouver dine out period. Price was very good and food was excellent. Server was really attentive. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
The dinner menu only had a small list of food options to choose from. But the lobster bisque was very nice.
This was my worst dining experience is years.
Firstly, the hostess, bus person and manger were helpful.
The food was simply awful.
The food took 52 minutes to come (at brunch)
When it came there were too many disappointing elements to write about.
The service was totally, oddly terrible (no idea why)
Food service view ambiance allll exceptional!
As always amazing food. Chocolate cheesecake was to die for.
Never felt rushed. Portions were generous. Service so friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend.
The food was really good. I ordered Sockeye Salmon(don't normally look for it) and the way it was done, it was awesome. Service was pretty good as well. It was a special occasion (our Anniversary) and there were sparklers too, wonderful. We should be back.
Service and food was top notch as usual. Never been disappointed when we go here. Definitely recommend
