Great place for lunch. But getting there is a pain, there is no short cut, you have to drive through Stanley Park. And if the parking is full, you have to drive all around the park AGAIN!(one way traffic). Otherwise, dining there is always enjoyable and delicious.
The wife and I went for the Prime Rib Special. The service was very good. The Prime Rib was good, but not spectacular. The red Sangria was excellent though and the place overall was quite charming.
It was wonderful memory for us, we'll visit again.
Great table for two and everything one could ask for in food, atmosphere and service on a Sunday late brunch short notice.
We all enjoyed the food but the experience was made extra special and fun with your waiter Nick. Outstanding customer service and an enjoy to be served by a young man like that.
The location, decor and ambiance is worth the drive. Service is always excellent. The food, although well presented, was barely lukewarm, served on hot plates. The chicken and fish would have tasted good if it had been served hot. Maybe next time. The desserts were delicious.
Took our friend there for her 75 birthday. It was her first time. Our server was wonderful and made her birthday dessert very special. She even took pictures for us with our phones.
First time to Stanley Park and took a chance on this place.
Had a great experience and the food was spectacular. Will return again and bring friends.
Connie our server was excellent.
We had a very pleasant birthday brunch at the Tea House. Our waiter, Sasha, was excellent. He was very attentive without being obtrusive. The complimentary birthday treat was a nice touch. We’re looking forward to going back again!
The stuffed mushrooms were delicious and the salmon was perfectly cooked.
This is a perfect place for a business or leisure lunch, service, food and ambient were excellent. The only problem I had was parking and road signs. Inside Stanley Park there are no signs to guide drivers to the restaurant. At the car park next to the restaurant, there is no clear sign showing that it is paid parking.
Excellent service, excellent food, excellent reservation system.
Such a lovely spot and the Sunday dinner special of roast beef was excellent and great value for a 3 course meal
Food wasnt the quality I expected with the price and how fancy the restaurant was. The inside of the potatoes weren't cooked or hot, and the outside was so hard it was like an outer nut shell. Hazelnut latte tasted sour. Food looked better than it tasted
Daniela was an excellent waitress! Our table was beautiful. Surprise birthday dessert with candle, tiny cupcake was awesome!
Our waiter John was fantastic. Great recommendations on food. We all had great meals.
Looking forward to going again!
Our server was so lovely to our son. Thank you for your kindness and great service :)
Typically great, friendly, attentive service but not this time....
Host Mark was welcoming but female server Tessa was as lacklustre as they come. We had a 65th birthday celebration, attended by mom, daughter, grandma, and it was very disappointing. We do this annual birthday event but may go elsewhere next year. It seemed as though Tessa just didn’t want to be there, like she was just putting in the time till the shift was over. Drinks were left unfilled. She was non-plussed when the daughter announced the mom’s big birthday (which they should have known about from the reservation), and no smiles or friendliness until the bill came out! It ruined the event. And the food is way overpriced and not as high quality as the city’s better brunch places luke Medina’s etc. And the side room we were in was freezing! (A wedding in the main part) a terrible disappointment. We expected charm, kindness, enthusiasm (which we got from the kitchen staff) from the server... but it wasn’t forthcoming.
A wonderful restaurant in the forest, warm atmosphere and amazing location.
We had the turkey special, salad and dessert were outstanding, the mussels poor as well as the turkey dinner, too little meat no choice of dark or white meat no skin, too much stuffing ,and the same for the potatoes, we expected much better with our past experiences in your restaurant .
Thank you for your attention , hopefully our comments are constructive for improvement for the future.
A wonderful way to spend our final night in Vancouver. We had the Thanksgiving turkey dinner (as did most of the diners around us) and the Sunday roast beef; both were very good. The fall salad was delicious, and the cranberry glazed cheesecake was out of this world. Our server, Mauro, was absolutely outstanding! Very professional, personable and attentive - he didn't miss a thing. Overall, a lovely experience, and the setting, at sunset, was magical.
Superb restaurant tucked away in Stanley Park. We had 180 degree water views from out table for 2.
Our timing was perfect to catch the sunset too.
We ordered off the Thanksgiving Prix fix menu and it was delicious. They also had the full menu available.
Cheers to The Teahouse!
Ps The manager even stopped by our table. Very old school.
Sasha was great serving us and the atmosphere is so serene. This is a spot I will take all my family and friends who come to visit Vancouver. One of my top choices for sure.
Reservation for 6:30 Friday night. Very brief wait while window table was being cleared; there were other non-window tables available, so it was nice to be offered the choice of the window table. Sitting in the bar area was pleasant; very cozy, and the English Bay view is unbeatable!
The staff was beyond gracious when my companion spilled both water glasses over the table; they quickly sat us at another table, took our dinner order while our original table was being cleaned yet again, then re-sat us by the window; with smiles throughout. I was so appreciative AND impressed!
My dinner of carrot-ginger soup and the 7 oz steak was perfect. The spice in the soup is present, but not overpowering. I cannot say enough about the excellent service; attentive without being intrusive or fawning.
Have already recommended to friends; view, service, and food are definitely worth the price.
Just lovely in beautiful Stanley Park. Had a delicious brunch, enjoying every bite!
We were celebrating our anniversary, and Tea House was perfect! Our server (Mark) was brilliant. The entree (Steak Neptune) was possibly the most amazing thing I have ever eaten. Wonderful experience.
Went for brunch - wasn’t able to cut into my English muffin was so dried out and hard - hash browns were the same. Cocktail was just ok. View was nice
We had a really nice time. Beautiful view and the food was good!
The only problem was getting a taxi to pick us up after lunch. Had to wait over an hour. Its really an issue for the taxi companies!
This is such a beautiful and unique place to dine. Staff were all so friendly, helpful and thoughtful.
We had the prime rib dinner special on Sunday night. I thought the yorkshire pudding was not very good. The prime rib was a generous portion and was the best part of the meal. The mushrooms we ordered on the side were not very warm and not that great. I thought that 4 shrimps for $14 was a little much. Overall, it took us almost 2 hours from sitting down to finishing our meal, which I think that was not great.
Such a classy restaurant that makes exceptional service and good food their priority. Place was full and we felt like we were sitting in our own home eating delicious food while gazing out over the water and taking in an absolutely breathtaking sunset.
We have been frequent Patrons of this establishment over the years and were always happy and impressed. This is why we decided to treat our Visitors from New Zealand to this location and show them one of Vancouver's "pearls"
we made a RESERVATION by the window 2 days ahead , hoping to get the usual Dining Room with Table Cloths and Panoramic Windows.
when we arrived , we were ushered in to what usually serves as the casual Dining area / wait and have drink while your table is ready section. Much to our Surprise for a Thursday afternoon outside of the hectic Tourist season, even the outside Patio was very busy.
This resulted in the same staff having to cater/serve double, perhaps triple the business than on a regular day, so subsequently, the service , although friendly, was severly lacking.
All of us (4 people, ordered off the "set menu" , one price/3 course meal) with ONE substitution of s different soup. Once the bill arrived, it reflected the REGULAR price per item and the substitution from one soup to another (tiny bowl) was $10 extra ….Really ??
The Maitr'e de somewhat reluctantly changed the bill to reflect our original order, which was still a sizable amount for 4 people. During the 3 plus hours we were there, not ONCE did the server come by to replenish water/bread/drinks etc....very likely because instead bringing on extra staff for such a busy day , they had no time, as we observed the same servers scrambling to accommodate in all 3 sections.
So, we don't blame the servers as much as the Management for not bringing in the extra help when it was clearly needed.
As always, the FOOD was good and tasty, so no complaints there.
I would still recommend this Retaurant, albeit cautiously to a Friend, for reasons as described above.
Elaine and Peter Moser
Food service ambiance was spectacular...last evening of a wonderful vacation.
Wonderful decor, delicious food and great server John
Great location and service. However, there are very limited options for vegetarians so that might keep us away in the future. If you eat meat and fish - you have lots of choices. The scenery is worth the trip.
