The Observatory at Grouse Mountain offers a seasonal three course Christmas lunch with a fixed price menu that offers great value considering that it includes the skyride gondola lift. I went expecting fog & blowing snow, but was treated to a fantastic view of the harbour & city. The food, presentation, & service were worthy of the "fine dining" designation.... More

I had the fish taco and my so yummy... Love to visit again just to have more of this. Place is super loud even for lunch setting so if ur looking for quiet where you can talk... Not quite the fit for it. The staff were friendly and the service was great.

It was a crystal clear night, and a stunning view. The food was good... not amazing, nor ground-breaking, but good.

Great food, great scenery, great people. One of the best restaurants I've been to. A fitting place for my daughter's 21st.

While the food was ok it lacked in presentation and it certainly was not a fine experience. Boring elevator music, bright spot lights and crying babies just simply isn't the ambiance I would have excepted.

You need to declare at the ski lift ticket office that you will be eating at the restaurant (with a reservation) and you can ride free. Having said that, the restaurant prices reflect that or maybe it's just the cost of getting provisions up the mountain but it is rather pricey. Nevertheless the views across Vancouver are outstanding and the... More

The view is to die for. The service, I thought was excellent. The ey were very careful about the food allergies of one of us and she was able to enjoy the whole experience. Would go there again the next time I'm in Vancouver.
