The Mosaic Bar & Grill is a dining room at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Serves a wide variety of menu items.
Great for a business lunch - central downtown location, with excellent food to boot. Who would have known?
I've been "blessed" with the opportunity to eat at a few Hyatts in the past year as I've been traveling for work, and they usually have pretty tasteless menus at high prices. Although this Hyatt isn't cheap, it breaks the Hyatt mold with very tasty food.
Try the roasted duck salad (with arugala, roasted beets, truffle sauce and lots odf juicy pieces of duck) for a quick and flavorful lunch. Dessert also worthwhile, if you have room after your generous lunch portion!
Mosaic is the restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. The hotel itself is all conventions and you have to do a little searching to find Mosaic (located on the hotel’s second floor) but don’t let that fool you into thinking Mosaic is just a run-of-the mill steam-table operation. The chef Chad Minton is formerly of the Ritz Carlton San Francisco and has brought the food up-to date by combining local ingredients in clever all be it simple fashions. The menu changes seasonally. Last week I had a the pleasure of eating a killer almond crusted trout with brown butter, plump golden raisins and haricot vert. They served it in a tiny All-Clad roasting pan! The slow cooked items are all excellent. I ordered a braised short rib with truffle juice and micro salad as a lunch special last week and found it to be one of the most tender, perfectly cooked pieces of meat I’ve ever tasted. There seems to be a sense of humor running through his menus with items such as the B.L.T. & A or the Ceviche 3 Way or George’s Cobb Salad (Who’s George?). As another reviewer mentioned the country onion soup is probably the best in town and the chocolate cake is really big. The service is uneven but compared to other union hotels downtown it’s pretty good. I would suggest making reservations for lunch as it seems quite busy.
I have been to this restaurant a few times for lunches. Food is perfect every time despite the fact that it is usually very busy during lunch hour. And because of the business, waitstaff are usually very busy and tend to under-serve. However, it would not deter me from coming here because the food is really good. Try the salad or the fishes.
I had the disappointment of dining at the Mosaik Med Grill last Friday night. We decided to stop in for desserts and coffees after as enjoyable meal at another restaurant. The confusion started with ordering - many of the dessert items on the menu were not available and others were substituted. My co-workers ordered decaf coffees which came not even luke warm. More than 20 minutes later my beverage arrived and they were able to ask for new coffees. The new cups arrived and one had a dirty ring in it that visible from across the table. The cup was exchanged and the coffees were finally served. Then out came our desserts - 3 were wrong (creme brulees not tiramisus) and only 1 was correct. Off they went back to the kitchen and another 15 minutes later we were given the correct items. I did not feel that the staff was particularly concerned about all of these slip ups nor did they offer any sort of discount. Instead we felt as though they were purposely ignoring our table for a larger party despite the fact that we were the only other table left. We had to ask for water several times before we got it and trying to pay our bill was almost impossible. The worst service that I have ever experienced. I will not be going back.
