Ocean Club, The100 Park Royal, #105, West Vancouver

I recently had the opportunity to visit this restaurant with a few of my friends. I had only heard rumours about this place so I was curious to check it out.

The Ocean Club is somewhat hidden in West Van's South Park Royal, located under the black office tower. It was a Friday night and the place was busy.

Sleek interior very crisp and clean. Interesting black and white photgraphs on the walls, dining banquets, white couches & granite tables, bar, and patio. Once again no reservations, however we were invited to seat at the bar until a table came available. Nicely dressed crowd. A little bit of Yaletown on the North Shore. Later I found out that The Ocean Club is licensed differently than other restaurants, open to 3am and no minors. This is nice.

Before writing this review I read some of the other reviews and thankfully my wingman, Big T had ordered the Mac n Cheese. Jumping thru all the menus, items were mid priced, with an extensive wine list, and crafted cocktail menu.
We stuck with a bottle of BC Pinot Noir and decided to stay at the bar to eat. Venison Carpaccio, Mac n Cheese, and the Manilla Clams.

The service was good, sincere, and knowledgeable. The food could have been a bit quicker but it was busy, can't comlpain too much. The plates were large and the food incredible. Tiny B was reluctant to share the clams however, everything works out in the end. Mac n Cheese was savoury and rich, clams tasty & spicy, the carpaccio...could be some of the best in the city. What made the experience fantastic was the group of ladies who were seated next to us. We ended up sharing a bottle of Argentinian Malbec, an Amarone and some good conversation with them. It was a great evening and I got home way past my bedtime.

A must see for everyone. Montreal, New York, London... Vancouver? Sexy room, diverse list of Belgian beers, innovative cocktail list, incredible food, and of course wine. I did not think to make reservations but when my friends and I arrived there was a little wait. We ended up at the bar for a couple of drinks and moule frites before getting seated. Well worth the wait, the servers were friendly, knowledgeable, and helped kick start the night. Whether with friends or solo add Chambar to your list.

I've been through these doors several times with friends, family, and clients. Always a great time. The menu diverse, decor eclectic, and the service good. Crowded, loud & fun. Arrive early (or perhaps later) to avoid waits. Not a place for the overtly fussy diner. Eat drink and enjoy!
