Meet the owner

Calgary native Bob Lindsay seems to have the Midas touch when it comes to restaurants.

After graduating from Ryerson University with a hospitality degree, Bob went on to work at Lonnie’s Restaurant, the only seafood eatery in Calgary in 1978. That success was followed up with Cannery Row, a Dixieland jazz and seafood bar, which soon became the city’s hotspot. “It was such a fun restaurant and an incredibly successful one,” he notes. “Our first restaurant critique dubbed it the ‘eye of the hurricane’ because it was so huge in 1981.”

After settling in B.C., Bob went on to launch two restaurants in Whistler – Monk's Grill and McQueens on Blackcomb – and the landmark Monk McQueen’s Fresh Seafood & Oyster Bar in False Creek, which closed in 2012 after 26 years. In 2002,  he founded Lift Grill Bar View. According to Bob, “The combination of being on the waterfront in downtown Vancouver, in an architecturally beautiful building and featuring the best local seafood, made Lift hugely popular from the moment we opened the doors."

Harbour Gem

Ambiance was just perfect sitting on the terrace along the water with views of the mountains. As it got chilly we were offered blankets and they turned on the fire pits...beautiful! The food was amazing, we had sushi, summer salade and portebello tarte, tuna.....all the plates were empty. Definitely a great place to go and be.

Really really good - must try!!

Located on the water with a view of the marina, Stanley park and the mountains, you can't ask for a better location! The food is fantastic. The ceviche and the watermelon & feta salad are great and their sushi and oyster platters are outstanding. The service and ambience also contribute to making this restaurant stand-out! This place is on my preferred list - can't wait to come again.

Hot Stuff

Incredible view but don't go without reservation. Good menu and at $50 the food was very good. The Rack of Lamb was right and obviously very fresh! The manager offered us free drinks since I knew him from way back which was awkward considering the company. This restaurant is now operated by familiar business interests in Vancouver which clearly know what to do. Great place for a date, alcohol selection and is also out of the way.

Great Dinner by the Harbour

Couldn't ask for a more perfect place to enjoy what was an exquisite dinner by the harbour. The Ahi Tuna I enjoyed was prepared to perfection, and the view of the harbour was amazing. That combined with the excellent service, and I can confidently say there was nothing missing!

We went to The Loft two nights in a row to enjoy happy hour! We will be back. January 31st - February 2nd we will be at the Westin Bayshore to enjoy our 20th anniversary. We are having a party at H Tasting Lounge and I think we would love to share happy hour at Lift too!

Very surprising dining delight! I celebrated my wife and I's 20th Anniversary...during Happy Hours 3-6 pm Saturday November 2nd with a group of 8 friends...firstly they normally don't allow Happy Hour guest to dine outside of the bar area...I asked for a nice table with a view of the water, which happily granted! One of the bartenders took great care of us with professional, courteous service, re-filling water glasses, and serving us wine, beer or highballs for $5 each, great value! The food was beautifully presented, and the same sized portion as the regular menu, in some cases less than half price! Amazing value, and the food was delicious, stunning presentations! Very pleased over all, the location is superb!

Beautiful setting, the server was very pleasant, but they all seemed to have too many tables. Drinks, food, etc. All too way too long. Food was ok, not great and much more expensive than Carderos around the corner. It has great potential, but needs some real work.

My family and I went to LIFT to celebrate my grandparents 60th anniversary and grandpas 85th birthday and the service, atmosphere and food was impeccable! Our server Natasha was very friendly, personable and made our experience memorable. We were seated at a beautiful table overlooking the water and the restaurant even surprised my grandparents with complimentary dessert which had an assortment of delicious treats for us all to share! Lovely evening and can’t wait to visit again :)

The service minus had to do with having been seated at the patio door on a cold rainy night with traffic going in and out, not with our waiter. The food was good, but compared with dinner at CinCin the night before it fell definitely short.

For a rooftop patio with breathtaking ocean views, look no further than Lift in Vancouver’s West End. With stunning contemporary design and sophisticated details, one can imagine a movie star sipping a Manhattan at this swanky patio’s bar while overlooking Stanley Park, Canada Place and the North Shore Mountains.

Heated patios for year-round outdoor dining in Vancouver

On fair weather days, the sliding glass walls are pushed open to blur the distinction between interior and exterior at this Coal Harbour restaurant. Patio heaters and an outdoor fireplace keep al fresco diners warm on cooler days. The stunning views of Coal Harbour and Vancouver from here merit cracking open a bottle of bubbles while gorging on fresh oysters. If you find yourself getting chilly, ask for a blanket to keep you warm.
