Way overpriced but a nice view Went for dinner last night and thought the service was great but that the food was way overpriced. We started with the pan seared scallops which, at $6.50 each, we imagined would be of a good size. They were tiny. Tasty but tiny. We had three each so it came to almost $40 just for the scallops. My wife had the halibut which was perfectly prepared and tender. I have the 16 ounce rack of lamb which I had to send back because it was under cooked. I found it to be rather chewy and at $55 way overpriced. With two drinks and the tip, the bill came to over $200.
Recommended Good food. Beautiful view of the city. Good service. I usually end up at The Salmon House at some point during a Vancouver visit and it's been consistently good for many years. A salad and spring rolls to start. Very good. This time my wife had the salmon Wellington, which, while I'd hesitate to call it "Wellington", was very good, as was my sablefish. Both plates well presented with a different variety of vegetables for each. Definitely recommended.
NEVER DISPPOINTS Was there last Sunday for brunch. The weather was with us and of course the view was outstanding. We always take out of town guests here for just that reason, as well as the fabulous west coast décor. As I was not that hungry, had the apple/fennel salad and it was a perfect size. Our guest loved the seafood pasta dish. Service was, as always, great.
Even better this time Last night my wife, myself and a close friend ate at the Salmon House. It has been quite a while since we last enjoyed a meal at the Salmon House as my wife has a fish and seafood allergy but our friend loves seafood and this is the place to satisfy his food choice. Our reservation was handled efficiently and our request for a window seat was met. Much to our delight there was a special “Vancouver eat out” three course menu as well as their usual menu. We all took advantage of this special menu. Our friend ordered the coconut and carrot soup as an appetizer then salmon with vegetables and mashed potatoes. He waited to make his decision regarding desert. My wife ordered a regular beet and goat cheese salad for her appetizer. As expected she ordered beef filet which had several vegetables and fingerling potatoes. She also ordered her desert later. I ordered the Salmon House sampler which was three variations of seafood with a tasty dipping sauce. I also had the beef filet. I pre ordered my desert which was a flourless chocolate cake. In addition our friend ordered a glass of white wine to go with his fish dish while my wife had a glass of red wine to compliment her beef. Our meals arrived within a reasonable time period. We were pleased that our beef was done exactly to our specifications. I should point out that bread is not included with the meal and is an extra expense. My friend and my wife later decided on the flourless chocolate cake for their desert. We were all delighted with the entire dinner. In addition both our waiter and the young girl bussing were very helpful and friendly. Even though my wife has a seafood allergy, we definitely will be back soon as they obviously have items on their menu for persons like my wife. The whole evening was a huge success thanks to the Salmon House on the Hill. .
Great View For Out-of-of-town Guests I had not been to the Salmon House in years but had relatives in town and thought it would be a location for brunch. The view of the city from there is amazing and the food was very good. I recommend this if you have guests in town, I will be back.
