Poised at the highest point in the city, Seasons in the Park offers a breathtaking, panoramic view of the city skyline, the North Shore Mountains, while nestled in the lush greenery of Queen Elizabeth Park. Enjoy exceptional service, and fresh, West Coast cuisine. The newly renovated Seasons Winebar is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat, enjoy a glass of wine and soak in the city views. Their outdoor patio is open all year round; it is partially covered and fully equipped with overhead heaters and fireplaces. Curl up with a blanket and dine outside - al fresco style!
Brunch here is amazingly pleasant. Wonderful view, excellent service beyond excellent actually and reasonably priced menu with a very good variety. I would highly recommended, especially for out of town guests that you want to impress. Get there early because it does get very very, very busy
Make sure to get table by the window for the best view.
My wife and I came here for our anniversary and we were very impressed! We had a great server with good wine/food knowledge and a sense of humor to boot! The views in this place are fantastic and the setting of the restaurant is pretty cool.
We started with the stuffed mushroom appy to share and it was amazing. I don't like to compare but I know a lot of people love the keg stuffed mushrooms (not sure why, they are prepackaged, frozen, and re-heated) and these made them look like a joke. I'd go with a 8.5/10
I had the peppercorn crusted rack of lamb and it was exceptional. Nothing to write a short story about, but solid. 8/10
My wife had the Crab & Mascarpone Crusted Wild BC Sockeye Salmon and it was exceptional. 9/10.
Was the little brownie mountain for dessert and it was good. 8/10
I highly recomend this place for special occasions, it's not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
My boyfriend brought me here one year for my birthday and the experience was wonderful! Our high elevation gave us a grand view of the horizon below, featuring beautiful Van City under light drizzles of rain. The servers were very polite and friendly, which was comforting. I had the steak and till this day, I can honestly say it was the best I've had! It was soo delicious! The only down side to the night was the inconvenient parking situation. We didn't want to pay for valet, thus we opt for street parking. It wasn't comfortable walking uphill in the rain in stilletto shoes.
Very good food and friendly professional service. Starting to get worried that good food and friendly service was no longer available in these price range. Very pleased with the experience and we certainly will return. The service was great, we had a nice witty fellow serving us, he was able to deal with my father in laws silly comments and food requirements. THUMBS UP just for that.
We actually preferred our dinner at Seasons to our recent dinner at Parkside. Seasons is more intimate and more relaxed, which is probably why we enjoyed it.
Had the baby arugula and watercress salad with the most succulent poached figs (divine!), the filet of black cod with blood orange carrot reduction and roast endive (rich and luscious!), and a slice of mango cheesecake with a cappuccino for dessert.
Service was top notch. It was raining and our cab was running a bit late driving to the restaurant, but we called ahead and said we'd be a few minutes late - no problem!
We started with cocktails and were told not to rush. The Seasons Martini was spectacular!
We ordered a bottle of red, and munched on a fresh loaf of crusty French bread as we waited for our starters to arrive.
The only mistake that happened was no big dea. A different waiter from the one normally serving us walked by and decided to fill up our water glasses with ice water instead of the rest of the sparkling bottled water on our our table. We only had a bit of sparkling water left, so perhaps it looked like the bottle was empty. When we told him we were drinking sparkling water, not ice water, he took away the ice water and brought us back fresh glasses, and brought a new bottle of sparking water on the house. (Yikes! Makes us sound like water snobs - we're not!) It was really appreciated.
The view was spectacular - overlooking Queen E Park and the city skyline in the distance. Even on a rainy night, the view is spectacular because the city skyline is well below the clouds.
Funniest moment - the gaggle of teenaged girls yapping about hairdos with their Gucci and Prada purses in the corner window table. Didn't think of Seasons as a restaurant one goes to before a night on the town, but who'd have thunk it?
I took my better half for lunch to celebrate.
We had made a reservation for this. Upon arrival, we were seated inside the restaurant at a window table with an excellent view of the park below and the city.
She ordered a nice mixed salad and the grilled calamari appetizer. I ordered the crab cakes to start and the srip loin and prawns. Fabulous lunch meal!
Our server was a shoe-in for his profession. The busboy was excellent in his assistance. We've dined here before with family on many occasions and it's always relaxing place to eat and to be served. Very friendly and very on the ball.
Prices reflect the value of the food that is served here.
A great place to take anyone - friend, family, your better half.
I had made reservations 3 days in advance to ensure a good table/view as it was my gf's BD (our first together). I wanted it to be a special night and since the reviews were so great I definitely had to take her to Season's.
I called the day of the reservation to confirm seating and to my surprise, I was not on the books. The hostess who answered the phone booked me again and also confirmed that upon ordering dessert, they would present it with a candle and "Happy Birthday Plaque." I was excited.
It was a beautiful sunny day so the view was simply amazing. It seemed pretty busy and upon being seated, we waited about 10 minutes to receive any water or service. (That's OK, did I mention the view was amazing??)
We ordered appetizers of Clams/Mussels (fresh n' tasty) & their "Famous" mushroom caps (also very good). For our mains we ordered Black Cod Fillet and Cornish Game Hen w/ Porcini Risotto. My black cod was simple, but nicely plated. The Hen was moist but the risotto was very over salted and even though there was "braised beef ribs" advertised on the menu with it, we could hardly find a scrap of beef.
For dessert we ordered the Sunburned Lemon Pie to share. The pie was AWESOME, probably the best dish of the night. What really had me upset was the fact that they unceremoniously brought the pie to the table and put it down and that's it. No candle, no plaque, no NOTHING! I was pretty upset as I had to convince my gf to get a dessert even though she was quite full.
In any event, the waitress apologized, comp.'d the dessert and brought us 2 glasses of champagne with a strawberry in each. Nice of her, but I was already pretty upset by that time. It was a very anti-climactic way to end the night.
Upon leaving, I had to stand 5 minutes at the unmanned coatcheck to wait for my coat. That pretty much summed up the night!
Ambiance was excellent, food was average at best and the service from the hostesses was HORRIBLE!
This was my first visit to Seasons in the Park. My boyfriend and I went there for our second anniversary and we were not disappointed. Upon first arriving, we had parked on the wrong side of the mountain. It was poorly sign posted, but we eventually made it there! The host staffs were friendly and welcoming, and offered to take our coats while we waited for our reservation.
I immediately noticed the stunning view of the city and mountains. I could have gazed in awe at the view all night, it was simply breathtaking. The restaurant its self was tastefully decorated for Christmas, nothing over the top or in your face. Christmas music was softly playing in the background, and the temperature inside was toasty warm. Our waiter arrived quickly, and was friendly and attentive. I was impressed that they offered a selection of non-alcoholic drinks, which came promptly with the warm fresh house baked bread. Both of which were delicious. For our appetizer we shared the Tuscan Flatbread. The bread drizzled with balsamic vinegar, left my taste buds tingling in anticipation for the next course. It was quite a generous portion size we were able to take some home.
We both ordered CAB Sirlion Steak for our mains. The plate arrived and was a work of art. The steak was cooked to perfection, and came with creamy mashed potatoes, tomato, broccoli, and spaghetti squash (seasoned with salt and pepper). Once again our waiter was attentive throughout our meal, and was competently knowledgeable about the menu.
A pleasant surprise came when we ordered desert to discover it was on the house. It came complete with a "happy anniversary" written on the rich chocolate cake.
Overall, we enjoyed my visit immensely, and hope to be back again in the new year! The view is to die for, service was excellent, without feeling like the waiter was joining us for dinner, and I can still taste the succulent steak a day later. Definitely a place to celebrate that special occasion.
A group of workmates and I went to Seasons for Dine Out Vancouver. We had been before a few years ago and ended up with the same great table in the corner with a beautiful view of the city. Our server was polite and took our drink orders quickly. Food was very good, but not outstanding. The Dine Out $28 price made it an excellent deal. I had the salmon and it was very tasty, as was the chowder and brownie dessert.
The only issue I had was at the end when the server brought us our bill. It was not separated and we did not get a chance to ask him to separate it before he brought it out. As I was paying with debit I went up and asked if I could pay for my part of the bill, to which I was greeted with a sigh and "I wish you had told me at the start it would be separate bills". I was shocked! I didn't see that is was a big deal, i didn't even want the bill separated, I just wanted to pay my share. In the end i paid my bill and he told me he would bring out the separated bills to our table. Well he took his sweet time and then left them on the window sill near our table and went and did something else. He finally got around to giving the rest of the table their bills a good 10 minutes later! I do not expect such bad attitude from a server at a fine dining restaurant. It was definitely a bad ending to an otherwise great night.
Every time I go, I receive the same, if not better service. The food is delicious without a doubt. Even the bread that they serve is delicious! The view is spectacular and can be seen at almost every table. The restaurant's layout is perfect for either tea time outside on the patio during a beautiful spring day or a romantic dinner inside overlooking Vancouver's city lights.
Appetizers that you must try include the "Beef Carpaccio" and the Mixed "Seasonal Greens maple vinaigrette, candied almonds, fresh berries, goat cheese" .
No doubt about it, this is a 5 star restaurant!
My girlfriend and I went for dinner there tonight.
The views are great.
It was raining tonight, but the fire place really kept us warm, as we sat on the patio.
We had an appies, mains and dessert.
My girlfriend have the porkchop which was really nicely done and bueautifly done garnish.
I had the 10oz steak with Garlic mash potato's and some garnish.
The mash potatos were supposed to come as garlic instead it came with mold.
They tried to tell me that it was blue cheese, but, I'm a bit of a chef and I know what blue cheese tastes like.
I almost lost my dinner all over my table.
I excused my self to the bathroom.
My girlfriend had the waiter take my plate away and apologized.
The manager came over and apologized as well.
Make sure when you go there you check your food before you eat.
I really like the service and the location, it's just too bad I was served a rather unfortunate mashed potato's.
We had a wonderful table on the upper level and the service was delightful, entertaining and professional.
The food was perfect (Seafood pasta and the Pork Chop).
Both were excellent and plentiful, flavorful with excellent presentation.
The restaurant was very well attended (it was a Sunday evening) and the view was wonderful.
Our waiter was very helpful in aiding us in our decisions for our entrees.
We highly recommend this restaurant and will certainly return.
After consulting the online reviews and asking friends for recommendations I decided to try Seasons in the Park for a special birthday celebration.
From making the reservation to the final good night I was not disappointed. I found their staff to be professional, genuinely friendly and attentive to all the details without being intrusive. They treated our birthday celebration as if it was a special evening for them as well and to top it off they managed to keep our glasses full and have all of our meals served at the same time!
Everyone in our group found the food really good with especially rave reviews on the Stuffed Mushrooms, Scallops, and Duck. The salads were fresh and tasty along with being a generous size. The wine list had a good selection of well priced B.C. wines. We brought our own birthday cake to the restaurant and our waitress delivered it to our table with the candles burning, a knife, forks and plates. They did not charge extra for this service. The average price per person was $60 including taxes and tip. Adding in the beautiful park setting, nicely decorated rooms, big windows, and stunning city views it was certainly worth every cent for such a memorable evening.
I am looking forward to returning for a meal on their beautiful patio. Truly a great place to show off our city!
We started with Seasons Famous Stuffed Mushrooms which tasted very rich and creamy. The Seafood Fettucine Carbonara was delicious and is recommended. The NY Steak however, was not the best. It was cooked perfectly, but a tad chewy. The veges were cooked just OK. We finished with a creme brulee that was good as expected.
The hostess and waiter were very friendly and helpful. The only reason preventing a 5 star rating from us is because of the inexperienced busboys. They were rude, silent, and did not smile. They seemed rushed and very jittery.
Prices are expected for these kinds of restaurant.
We were seated outside on the patio with a beautiful view of the city. The inside was also very clean with lots of windows. The only complaint was the flies outside.
Beautiful view, with good food and service. Will return.
Went for New Year's dinner...
-Server very cheerful (even for working on New Years Eve)
-Was a bit of a wait, but the restaurant was completely full and it was ok considering we had intended to spend a couple hours there anyways
-Appetizer: Beef carpaccio and ahi tuna: Delicious
-Entrees: Ahi tuna and steak - the portions are HUUUUGE. It was so yummy
-Dessert: Chocolate cake and sorbet - Sorbet was very good; chocolate cake is average
Overall, the dinner for 2 (3 courses) came to $100. Not bad considering how big the portions were.
this is the class place to take your out of town friends. Great food, solid wine list and excellent service staff. The view of Vancouver is just an added bonus. A little secret...next time the fireworks competition is in town on a good night you could see the occasional burst over the city from the high view point. Just an extra bonus. Hard to believe the old Quarryhouse would evolve into such a hit
I recently attended a wedding here and the meal I had was amazing. I would have been more than satisified had I come on my own and paid for the food I had. Most everything I had was on their regular menu and was so delicious. Hors d'oeuvres was so good especially their mini stuffed potatoes. These were to die for. The waitress said the topping was the same as their stuffed mushrooms. The meal we had consisted of orgranic greens, the prawn cake, ahi tuna, rack of lamb or 12 oz steak and a dessert buffet with their lemon tart, chocolate fudge cake and pecan squares. I had the lamb and it was done perfectly. It was so tender and juicy, I could cut it with my butter knife. The chocolate cake just melts in your mouth. I am looking foward to coming back.
