    ost restaurant manager performs the best service in a restaurant. But, it's not true at Flota Seafood Restaurant located at #400-180 Keefer Street, Vancouver. I experienced the unpleasant service from one of the manage. I didn't know his name, but he is the oldest guy in black suit. I only made mistakes on the DIMSUM list, he came to challenge me why I chose the promotional item. Time limit is over. I really didn't understand why. P.S. the rest of the servers are okay.

    We were treated very courteously. The waiter even advised us that we might have ordered too much food (a nice gesture, but we wanted it all!!) Then he laughed along with us that we managed to eat almost all of it. :) This place gets very busy and noisy, but we went for dimsum at 10am, and it was much quieter before 11am. There's also a discount if you order before 11am. The food was great. Some dishes were amazing. Great selection.

    We had one of our favourite servers; he's been there many years. Food was very good, fresh and hot. Floata always has good value for the cost.

    Did not expect to get the "white people" menu just because I spoke English. I've been to Floata many times with my (Chinese) family and had amazing, traditional food, but I was incredibly disappointed when I found out I was given the "western" menu. Also, the food came out lukewarm. Please do not serve someone a "white" menu just because white people cannot appreciate good, traditional Chinese food, and just because someone speaks English.

    We were given different menus than everyone else. Our first dish was the peanut butter dumplings and we were given and charged for 4 even though the normal order size is 8.

    Restaurant is very spacey and the service is also very good. We ordered a lot of dim sum and the portion is very big, well worth the price. Parking is also free. Will go again

    Everything was delicious except the veggie spring rolls were cold in the middle. Ordered bok Chou and mushrooms off the Vegan menu was tasty. Also had veggie fried rice. Asked fir no oil but ws told they can’t do it. Was kind of oily and salty but tasty and filling. Great tea too for no extra charge. A little pricey but worth it for the free parking if you’re going to an event close by. It is more of a banquet hall divided by partitions. We were the only people at 6:15 in a fairly large brightly lit room, so not romantic in the least. Also the staff chatters in ?Chinese? Which is to be expected not a big deal. Lots of options for Vegan, seafood, beef, chicken or just about any other creature you feel like consuming.

    I can't recall a worse Chinese meal. Do not go to this establishment as a small group. It may be okay for very large events.

    The food was delicious. I enjoyed it immensely. Had a real Hong Kong feel about it.

    This meal was a disaster. They are much more focused on banquet meals than being a restaurant. We got seated in an inside room with no windows and no atmosphere - it was like a traditional banquet hall. Not what we were doing expecting. Then we went to order (after waiting 25 minutes before we were even acknowledged at the table) and were told they weren't serving dim sum, even though their website advertised it (starting at 11AM with no end time), their flyers around town advertised it, and a sign by the door advertised it. We ended up leaving before eating with no apologies from the staff other than the excuse that they were busy. I would not recommend this place and will not be back.

    I like that you do not just have pretty young girls serving but staff like comfortable older looking house wife' mamma type - they are warm & friendly without being Ott Yet professional.

    If you're looking for live seafood, carefully cooked to perfection, it doesn't come any better than this. A fine dining atmosphere & attentive service just added to a very pleasant experience.

    Food is excellent and staff are very nice. It was Lunar New Year and very busy as expected. It was difficult to get the dim sum dishes we wanted as the other customers kept getting up and going to carts with their order slips and picking up dishes before they got near out table, so we started doing that too. Get a table near the kitchen when it's busy.

    Should be able to make reservation to more than 8 on your website. Had to call to increase reservation to 10, which is less convenient

    We were in a small room because there were 2 large Christmas parties. So, not the best ambience starting at the dividing walls, bit it was good they could still fit us in. Food is always good here.

    It was nice to discover that we could book on-line for a dim sum lunch and avoid the long line-ups at other dim sum establishments! We were seated promptly. The dim sum was good; service average (typical of what you'd expect in similar restaurants) and prices reasonable. A bonus was the fact that we could find parking easily in the parkade adjacent to the restaurant, on the same floor, in fact! We hadn't been there in many years, but since this re-discovery, we shall certainly go there more often for dim sum!
