    We’re sure going to miss this place. The service and quality of food and drink is still stellar even though they’re closing in a few days. Total pros. If any of the staff from here apply to your establishment- hire them!

    Everything was great!! Always have had great meals at Yew- Four Seasons Hotel!! It is unfortunate that the Four Seasons is closing its doors after 45 years? (It's always about the Landlord being so greedy, chasing away good tenants). Hope the 4 Seasons will open another spot in Vancouver. Thank you for Great Meals!!

    We started off in the lounge for happy hour before 6pm. The deep fried chicken wings were tasteless and dry. We had it sent back. They put more salt and pepper on the next batch and fresh from the fryer. Much better. The calamari was good and the flat bread was good. We moved to dinner area. Decor and high ceilings are very nice. The lobster chaser salad was excellent. The prawns were good. The sable fish was excellent. For dessert we had the yew rocher which was lit with alcohol to melt the chocolate ball. Presentation was excellent. We also had the Black Forest deconstructed cake. That was good too. Design is different for the desserts. Service was excellent. It’s a shame this hotel and restaurant will be closed on Jan 20th forever.

    We ordered oysters and the jerk spiced cauliflower to start. Our mains were the mixed seafood and the salad from the gluten free menu. All the dishes were delicious. I really appreciate how well the scallops and fish were cooked. We also ordered the hidden garden and the hazelnut rocher for dessert. Both were fabulous. The service was fantastic - we were treated very well. We will miss this restaurant.

    Another enjoyable New Year's eve at Yew's for my wife and I. Excellent server in Sean and much better food this year. As usual, the DJ did a great job with the music and keeping everyone on their heels until well past midnight. Sorry that the hotel will be leaving its current location and hope it resurfaces soon elsewhere in Vancouver.

    They should have asked how cooked you wanted the meat, wasn’t value for money. Booking in advance did not receive a good table.

    Christmas Dinner with family. Waitress interaction was appropriate and welcome. She definitely took steps to ensure we were satisfied and happy with each of our courses and the overall meal. We hope the four seasons and yew restaurant find a new home in Vancouver. We have enjoyed your facilities for many years.

    Having spent last Xmas at the restaurant we were so looking forward to this year which was so very disappointing. Firstly there was confusion at the desk regarding where we were to be seated this ultimately resulted in us (3) being rushed to a table that was not the original I only know this as the staff stated the table was still in use which lead to us being hustled to a corner across from the bar not exactly festive being away from the main restaurant! Regarding the food, the choices for celiacs was very poor in fact i was advised the mash potatoes were gluten free which incidentally they were cold and many of the other vegetables. Extremely let down particularly when one pays $450 !

    Delicious food - Traditional holiday fare with an elevated twist! Impeccable service. A gorgeous setting. We had a delightful time! A beautiful place to have a Christmas morning brunch. (Book early for the holidays - It’s an indulgence, but one that’s worth every penny!)

    Very good ambience but a bit too noisy for private dinner. Foods are good, serving is small, prepare to order two mains. I book for my daughter's birthday celebration as she just came home from Australia, but the restaurant made no effort to help us with this special occasion.

    We love it here, but on Saturday December 14th when we visited the lounge, our server was extremely rude to our table and it was very embarrassing as we had a friend who had never been before. The server was very attentive to tables beside us, but never checked on us repeatedly during our visit. Very disappointed :(

    Since the restaurant will be closing permanently in a matter of weeks, this doesn't really matter, but: (1) our server was very good; (2) the food was very tasty, and the presentation was amazing; (3) the hostesses were poor (they at first tried to seat us without offering to take our coats, and when we specifically asked that they do so, they tried to put one on top of the other, which - since they were wet on the outside from the rain - would have meant that the INside of one of them would have gotten soaked, if we hadn't insisted that they use two separate hangers). (4) the wine by the glass list was ridiculously short, and they were out of several of those wines (because of the pending closure, they aren't ordering new stock).

    Beautiful space but even with a reservation, we were given a table right next to the kitchen under some bright lights. For a romantic date night, it wasn't the best table. However, our server was very nice and efficient.
