This time of year the halibut is exceptional, served over a vegetable succotash very filling very nicely done. I also enjoy their burger when served with lettuce wrap as opposed to a bun, very light great meal. The surprise of the dinner was the seared scallops with the sultana chutney it was superb.

It was raining pretty heavily (it is Vancouver after all) so we decided to have dinner in the hotel. Despite being freezing cold outside the hotel was a pleasant temperature and it was a comfortable dining room - not loud or crowded. Food was good and our sever was friendly.

My son and I have been visiting the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown for several years. It has become a custom that we have a buffet breakfast at Showcase every morning before we start our day.

Service was decent, and the atmosphere was neat... the food was okay. I was staying at the hotel attached (Marriott Pinnacle) and ended up eating here a few times. It was missing something each time... not sure what. Come here for a few cocktails, but don't expect to be blown away by the food.

I was curious about experiencing Showcase as it has been over 10 years since I ate there. The service was amazing, from the greeting by the manager (Kaitlin) to the warm service from Stéphanie. The food was delicious, and presented with care, at the right temperature. I will not wait a decade before I return!

The Showcase is sleek and shiny, with great service. We found the music way too noisy and dissonant, although I recognize that music is a personal matter. I had Arctic Char for my entrée, which included gnocchi and squash puree and everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. My husband's dish however came with bok choy which was completely inedible -... More

Food quality and service is good. Spacious between the tables, very generous to give comfortable space to every dining guests. They have a private room (glass block) so good for business meeting etc too. There are some vegetarian friendly option and consider this is hotel dining it is priced reasonable.

Bad attitude when busy. OK food but in an area with so many choices might want to be nice to customers. Will give it another shot once I forget about last visit. If it is busy, try something else in the area

We had drinks and ate multiple meals at Showcase while staying in downtown Vancouver. The restaurant, attached to the Marriott, has great ambience. It has very modern furnishings and provides an excellent place to stop and grab a meal or a drink while in downtown. The food is excellent as well as the service. It's not cheap, but certainly on...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
