When I first decided to surprise my wife by taking her to Aurora, we had finished a long afterwork day and was trying to lift us into a relaxed place. We arrived at the tail end of the dinner rush as many different parties were lingering and leaving. They seated us at what could possibly be perceived by most as the most undesireable table in the restaurant (it was beside the bar near the bathrooms), but I found it to be a great seat as you had a full view of the room with ample opportunity to absorb the ambiance. We were served appropriately and had great reccomendations by the staff, and they even steered me down $5 into a bottle of wine they felt suited my tastes better, while offering me little tastes of this and that to get a feel for what I liked. Even though through our dining experience we witnessed many people leave, I never once felt like we were rushed or unwanted, which I had experienced before in other establishments. I opted for dessert but my appetite was not up for it. The appetizers and main courses had done us well. I would highly reccomend the restaurant, as they try to ensure everything served is from B.C.

I have been a longstanding anonymous patron of this fine Vancouver dining Instsitution and was recently tipped off to this review site. I am shocked at some of the reviews I have read and would like to inform you, don't believe everything you read. Anyone that is looking for an incredible seafood dining experience look no further. The wait staff have always been friendly, prompt, courteous, and proffesional. The food has always been scrumptious, fresh and priced well in comparison to other restaurants of this stature. The ambience is always suited for whatever needs I have wanted, if I needed quiet, they would seat me somewhere where it was reasonably quiet. If I liked my guests to be in a place where they could feel some of that Vancouver energy, it was there for the absorbing. I have always felt that if you need a place to go that is like a home this is it. If I had known about this site earlier I probably would have posted many more times about many establishments. Now I will. But don't take my word for it. Go check it out for yourself, I'm sure you will enjoy your experience.
