If you visit Vancouver, this is a must... that is the tram ride up, taking time on the observation deck and having a meal at this wonderful restaurant. Presentation, presentation!!! Simply amazing to add to the wonderful food experience. 4 people enjoyed a variety of the menu choices. No disappointment on anything. Great service! Too bad we live many provinces... More

Grouse mountain is not just for skiing! You can take the gondola up the mountain to have great food although the prices are on the high side but made up for the quality of the food and of course the view - best if you are by a window.

We had a lovely meal in this beautiful and delightfully intimate restaurant. The food doesn't have to be good, given the views here. But, in fact, our meal was absolutely wonderful and our server excellent. I think every Vancouver visitor should try to have this experience (which, of course includes the breathe-taking tram ride). The view is unequaled and the... More

Amazing to have fine dining at the peak. Weather had us clouded in, as well as snowing like crazy. Windows go all around and they work to put people in the window tables first. Excellent service and the food, in a word, OMG. I'll definitely eat there again.

My husband and three older teenagers took a trip up Grouse just to have a fantastic meal. As long as you let the ticket agent know at the bottom of Grouse, you will not have to pay for the Gondola up the mountain. That is a savings of about $50 per person. When you look at the price of the... More

Our final night in Vancouver was spent at The Observatory for dinner. The gondola ride up was special as we were able to take in the sunset and the view of the city. What a sight. We walked around the top and took in the winter activities which was a lot of fun. Top that off with a delicious dinner,... More

Excellent service and ambiance all around. Pricing not for the faint of heart, but at least a dinner reservation covers the cost of the gondola. We had the lamb and were not disappointed.

I held my 50th birthday party up here in December. We were given a private room with a fireplace and large windows looking out towards Vancouver. Although we couldn't see much through the snow packed trees and overcast skies... but we expected this for December in Vancouver. The staff was very attentive, food was great. The price is a bit...

We took our uncle and cousin from Winnipeg to The Observatory for a night out of fine dining. They were blown away with the gondola ride up the mountain to start. Followed by a fantastic table by the window, overlooking Vancouver. It was the perfect night for all. The staff was very friendly and looked after every detail of our... More
