We had a great night, ordered the caesar salad, the Coho special, and the seafood feast bowl which were all amazing. I also had the warm duck salad, unfortunately the only complaint was the duck was tough although the salad was delicious so I wouldn't order that again. Great ambiance and service.

We had an amazing dining experience and the view was breathtaking. The seafood tower was delicious and fresh. We ordered the duck, sockeye salmon, sable fish and halibut, and all our entrees was cooked perfectly. Special thanks to Kyle and the staff there for making my father’s 86th birthday memorable and special!

The ambience and view at Salmon House is always great. Service was excellent. The food was quite good, but one steak was undercooked and had to be sent back to be cooked more. Overall great meal and restaurant.

The view, the service, the variety on the menu and the quality of the food!
The sablefish , duck and beef tenderloin were all outstanding and the server Colleen was attentive yet not intrusive! Not cheap however a perfect evening for a double birthday! I’ll certainly return!

The food was delicious. The recommendation that our waitress made was great too! She was knowledgeable when asked about the difference in taste between Sockeye and Chinook salmon (the Chinook was soft and delicious, just like she described it as). It would be interesting if you would offer a limited time special of a whole salmon? Whole Sockeye or Chinook? Overall, 11/10!

We enjoyed every dish and esp the fresh catch Chinook and Sockeye salmon specials of the night.

The Salmon House is an old favourite and although we always enjoy our visit it has got more expensive without maintaining value.
The view and the location are unparalleled in Vancouver and the wait staff are very professional.
The caesar salad was a disappointment and over priced, but the mains were very good.

We feel so fortunate that The Salmon House is in our neighbourhood. The food is always delicious and the staff welcoming. We love the ambiance which embraces the First Nations culture.
We would definitely recommend The Salmon House to friends!

It's our favorite place for a special dinner. Jessica's service was great.
A couple of noisy groups were placed near us which detracted a little this time.

Food was very fresh tasting and served in a delicious broth sauce. Would say you could get equivalent qualit for a lower price point in the City but of course paying for view. They wrote ‘Happy Anniversary’ on our dessert which was a nice touch. We had a great evening overall.

Food was mediocre and over priced. Caesar salad made with iceberg lettuce? Poor premium liquor selection at the bar. Only 4 gins and only Empress as a premium selection. Disappointing experience despite the great service by attentive staff and a fun companion.

So unfortunate to write this as I know this restaurant had been around for a long time.
The inside is beautiful and timeless but that’s the only good thing about this restaurant now.
For what it was the food was over priced.
The servicer was terrible, I’m surprised he works there… really slow service and odd behaviour.
We came here because it was the only reservation we could get last minute on a Friday night however for $300 (no alcohol ordered) I wish I ordered in.

Fabulous view. Excellent service. Food was very tasty -- go for the traditional best bets: salmon didn't seem that fresh? Meals could have been served a bit warmer--perhaps they had sat for a bit? But the main courses were very tasty and nicely presented. In general, over the years, food is consistently very tasty and service and view are outstanding. We really enjoy going here for birthdays and other family celebrations. Keep up the good work Salmon House!

Liked the food, service, parking and restaurant. The reservation system seem a bit fault on line with open table. The restaurant was open at 5:00pm, our preference for time but online reported only open for reservations at 6:00pm. I asked for a window seat one week in advance with the online reservations but when arriving nothing reserved. Next time I will phone them directly and bypass this open table system.

The service was excellent. The drinks and food were great. However, the caesar salad was different in that only the ribs of the Romaine lettuce leaves were served. The leaves were cut off the ribs. The ribs were crunchy and fresh but it was still unusual.
