    Overall the food and ambience were good but there were definitely some oddities. When the waiter first came, he explained in great detail about all the alcoholic drinks we could order. We went for brunch so we were looking for coffee, we had to ask about those options before he told us them. We ordered our food and drinks and weirdly the first course came before our drinks, it took awhile before the drinks arrived. The food was great but the portion of the potatoes in the steak and eggs was tiny. We were celebrating a birthday and they brought out a plain muffin with a candle in it at the end. Not complaining about getting something free but a plain muffin as a birthday treat? Seems like a weird choice. Would've appreciated some artwork in the latte as well. A lot of these things wouldn't bother me at a regular breakfast place but at a high end place like the botanist we had high expectations.

    Brought my daughter here for her 23rd. The decor - stunning! Service - amazing! Cocktails - unique and delicious! She had the salmon and I had the duck. Absolutely perfect. Our server brought a birthday treat and made it gluten free for her. What a gem. We will be coming back soon!

    The cocktails here are always so good. The appetizers stellar and mains were delicious. The only regret is I wish I opted for vegan main as my duck main dish was a bit too much duck for my preferences.

    Great food and service as always! One of my favorite places in town. A comment about the King salmon is that the torched wasn’t enough and the center was a bit too raw, and we like sashimi, but a couple of minutes in the oven would have been perfect. Other than that, perfection!

    The reservation for brunch seating could have been more specific, main room vs patio garden. Service was great, but had to negotiate several rounds to get the main room seating, which was a hassle. However, once seated, the rest of the experiences were excellent. The two courses with two cocktail drinks were definitely good value considering the location and the ambiance. The portion was adequate and the flavour were well balanced. The drinks were definitely the highlight. Overall, will considering recommend to family and friends if they ever want to check out a place for nice brunch.

    I really enjoy the vegan cauliflower appetizer, however the entree was so-so and after alerting the server to a dairy allergy I was served Parmesan cheese. I probably wouldn’t eat there again.

    It is a definite must to go for the tasting menu. We didn’t have any food allergies, so we simply let ourselves be taken on a 7 course culinary adventure (1 course being the amuse-bouche and another, the palate cleanser). We were blown away by the creative and beautiful plating of the complex and well thought out components of each course. The flavours were amazing and the attention to detail was impressive! My husband doesn’t drink, and I can only have one glass of wine, so we didn’t add the wine pairings to our meal; however, the sommelier came over and, based on my preferences, offered a perfect wine which I enjoyed over the course of the evening. Our server provided impeccable service, and the ambiance was so lovely in the Garden nook where we chose to sit. There was a live pianist in the restaurant, and the din of the other diners who were conversing, but the noise wasn’t intrusive. We loved our first experience at Botanist and will be making the tasting menu experience here an annual event!

    It was quite a disappointing experience. The design of the place is nice, but it shows the age. We were offered a booth (like a secluded table with couches) and there were stains all over the seats. The service was ok, no complaints but I think waitressess' attire is completely inappropriate. Those green dresses would work well for an American diner, but not a high-end restaurant. And those dresses also look quite odd on mostly middle-aged staff and don't fit them well. The food was pretentious but we didn't enjoy any of the meals. Everything was oversalted to our taste. The drinks were also not impressive. Overall I'd say it was 3/5 experience, but when you think of the price it goes down to 1.5/5.

    Food was quite good - not outstanding though. The tagliatelle with mushrooms tasted good but lacked subtlety. The halibut with Dungeness crab was nice but the accompanying crab fritter was on the heavy side. I was a bit shocked that the restaurant offers ... New Zealand salmon rather than local sourcing- not environmentally friendly (in BC!). Overall, a good dining experience and sophisticated ambiance.

    Craft cocktail were genius and each and every dish was unique, well-prepared, and presented in an appetizing fashion. Wine selection was pretty broad and reasonably priced. Only downside is location within a hotel and above a busy lobby, though it is centrally located to downtown Vancouver. I would be back monthly if I didn’t live 1900 km away.

    We just got engaged whilst on holiday in Canada. I picked this place to celebrate as it looked like a really interesting menu with great cocktails. It really delivered. The service was fantastic, friendly, good chat and very knowledgeable about the food. We did the 6 course tasting menu which we would never have done if it wasn't a special occasion, super glad we did as each course was great, not one that we didn't enjoy in some way. Go here, you will have a good time!
