Took one of our sons and his wife for brunch
I had stuffed French toast, she had blueberry pancakes both were very good
The men both had scrambled eggs sausages fried potatoes and toast and they really enjoyed their breakfast!
The view was exceptional with a cloud filled dramatically stormy sky and a choppy grey sea with pelting rain but weirdly beautiful!
We all had a great time!

We all enjoyed the “package”. Lovely West Coast ambiance, beautiful view (almost every table has some view), delicious food (mushroom omelette was outstanding) and great service.

The food and service were great. However, the noise level was a little too much for my preference. I am thinking that the noise level was high because it was a Friday evening around 6 pm. Usually we arrive later and the noise level is much more acceptable during the later hours.

Food was decent; what you what expect from an old school seafood restaurant. I ordered my food with an allergy and they accidentally gave it to someone else at the table. Not a big deal, but could have made me very sick.

The Salmon House was always a favorite for me when I lived in West Vancouver, and this was the first time back in 20 years. My daughter and her husband were visiting from Dubai He is an avid fisherman and wanted to go Salmon fishing, but alas no Salmon fishing allowed. So I thought It would be a great experience to eat Salmon at the Salmon House. Nothing seemed to have changed much, the server was good view excellent, and the food wonderful. Thank you !

We had visitors from Europe with us so they were impressed by the view of Vancouver. The food and service were excellent. Three of us had the salmon trio which was very good. One had steak which was cooked to perfection. Some had the seafood sharing starter and it had a good variety of quality seafood. Serving sizes are not huge but adequate. All in all worth the price for a memorable evening with friends.

I was there for an early dinner, and the atmosphere was very relaxed, after my stressful week. Staff were welcoming, service was pleasant and prompt. Food was very good, but not exceptional.

Our enters were cold, the chef mixed up the dinners when requesting certain items not be on the plate
The plates were cold. Only one white wine by the glass was on the wine list. The music was too loud

This restaurant is an excellent place to bring friends from out of town. It is a lovely example which showcases West Coast art, decor, and food. It is nestled in the trees and is located just south of the spectacular British Properties. It has a lovely view of Burrard Inlet and Lions Gate Bridge. The food is very West Coast and features many different types of salmon prepared many ways. The Seafood tower, which is very pricey is spectacular and can easily be shared as an entree for two. The service is efficient, prompt and unobtrusive. The Caesar salad with shrimp is terrific. It is a great place for fine dining and to show off beautiful British Columbia!

Very expensive for a meal that was only OK. When you are spending $40-$45 per entrée, you do expect to feel like you just eat something delicious. We definitely did not feel that way. Would not return.

Cold inside, I had to go get sweaters from our car. Service was boring. The Salmon of the day was sold out, what we did order then was average and way to little for the price. They had no Appleton’s Rum nor do they make blended drinks. View was good. Everything thing else below average. Don’t see the attraction for this place really. It’s great for rich people on a diet I suppose.

I took my girlfriend to this restaurant to celebrate one of our monthly anniversaries ... The view from the restaurant was breathtaking ... I would give the service a 9 out of 10 ... Food and value was also 9 out of 10 for me.

I would love to see this restaurant offer valet parking.

Unfortunately even a special occasion and many weeks notice will not guarantee a window seat. Still nice views but a bit disappointed nonetheless.

We were a little disappointed with the Salmon House this visit. We were there in September 2018 and found that menu much better. One of our party ordered the sockeye dish and it was so salty - apparently it was like eating anchovies. Unfortunately she didn't want to make a scene and only divulged her disappointment with her dish towards the end of the meal. I had also requested a window seating when I made the booking, but we were allocated a table in the interior of the restaurant, which was disappointing as we had overseas guests. Overall the food was good, but I think a little pricey and felt that the value for money factor had dropped since last year.

The food and service were wonderful. They really made us feel special. The view is gorgeous. The restaurant furniture and decor, while clean, comfortable and otherwise nice, is getting a little dated and could use some investment. Overall, a very delicious, well-presented dinner, with attentive service, and some opportunity for improvement in the ambience.
