Our server put candles in a piece of salmon on my husbands' dinner plate once she learned it's his bday and he doesn't want any dessert. That was so funny and thoughtful!!

Amazing service and ambiance!!! Thank you for such friendly service - we had a lovely time! 🤗 My poached eggs were not soft poached as ordered, but because it was a special birthday celebration, I didn’t want to cause a fuss and spoil the occasion. Linda M.

I have enjoyed a couple of lunches this summer on the patio at the Sylvia. They practice good COVID safety. Food is reliably good. Staff are super nice.

The staff were allowing too much table surfing. There was a table of 6 that had two separate groups of 2 people come up and chat with them for 5-10 minutes. Wait staff didn't seem to have the nerve to say something. They just walked around them. These aren't youth that Bonnie Henry talked about, they were 60+. The food and the atmosphere were great though.

Nice setup outside along sidewalk on Beach Ave! Was great to see beach and watch bikes go by. Practically no car traffic because city turned one car lane into bike lane. We came by bike and were able to park them right next to our table. Service was very quick and friendly.

Out server was attentive but did not hover; allowed plenty of time to visit & converse with friend. His suggestions were appreciated (calamari appy). Prime rib dinner was delicious. Med-rare cut was generous and the meat was tender. The sautéed brussels sprouts were tasty and crunchy. The garlic mashed potatoes were creamy and flavorful. It was a sunny Sunday and our indoor table provided a lovely view of the beach and the cyclists riding by. Be mindful that eastbound lanes of Beach is closed. Always a good meal and dining experience at The Sylvia.

Absolutely great service in our favourite place in all of Vancouver! Both my husband's family and my family stayed at the Sylvia Hotel when our families moved to Vancouver in the 50's and 60's! Wonderful memories, great food, and fabulous service. Thanks for always making the Sylvia Hotel so special for us!

Enjoy a bottle of wine or a blueberry martini with friends while watching the seawall activities or a spectacular sunset from Sylvia's lounge. The picture windows and cozy fireplace create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

No hotel bar list would be complete without mention of beloved Sylvia’s Lounge at her eponymous heritage hotel in the West End. The menu has been updated to reflect the times, but classics like cobb salad and fish chowder remain. Decent wine and beer lists and cocktails as well as specialty and Irish coffees make for excellent afternoon refreshment after walking the Stanley Park seawall. Take in the history inside and the beauty out at this favourite English Bay haunt.
