Oceans 999 Pan Pacific Vancouver Ratings and Reviews
Went for Italian opera night buffet for ...
Went for Italian opera night buffet for my mother in law's birthday.
Five stars for food quality, taste and service. I gave it only 4 stars for food overall due to the limited selection of hot buffet items (only 4 -veggies, cannelloni, fish and veal) plus the panini. If I recall correctly, there used to be 6 hot item selections in addition to the pizza/panini/flatbread.
Food was replenished very quickly and often hence 5 stars for food quality - all 8 of us at the table agreed that the snapper fish was cooked perfectly and veal scaloppine was very tender.
The current group of 4 opera singers were very good; I feel that the previous 2 singers who had been there for over 10 years were better with regards to hitting the notes and the volume (how loud they can sing).
Over the past 15 years, I've been to opera night over 10 times (so annually - ish) Great value for what you get. Will be back.

My partner and I always go for the Sunday brunch buffet, and he always wishes the roast was beef instead of lamb, which he doesn't like. Otherwise the buffet offers a good selection. The roast has always been lamb every time we have been there. Obviously the lamb must be a popular choice or they would have replaced it with a different kind of meat. For me being a vegetarian the buffet is not exactly good value, even though I still have plenty to eat. But that's unavoidable... It's still an experience that we look forward to repeating every now and then.

Superb time at the Pan Pacific, Oceans 999. Food was of a very high quality and displayed in a very visually appealing manner for Sunday brunch. Service was excellent, available but not intrusive, subtle sense of humour, and certainly no rush at all. Would highly recommend, and all of the experience was impressive to overseas visitors too. Look forward to another visit in the future!
What a wonderful experience at Oceans 9 ...
What a wonderful experience at Oceans 999! It was a special anniversary for us and the entire staff made our experience one to remember, from our complimentary champagne to the complimentary dessert . Our meals were also delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants great service and food.

We didn't know the patio was closed for the preparation for a private event, was hoping to sit outside, nevertheless, we still got a nice window table with a nice view for lunch. Service was attentive, I ordered pan seared salmon, the portion was pretty small for $29 plate, and the salmon was way over cooked. I didn't make a fuss about it since this was a business lunch.
Friends long overdue reunion
We hadn't seen each for over 8yrs. We used to hold our office dinners at the Cafe Pacifica with live opera singing and wonderful selections at the salad, pasta & dessert bar. This time we chose a quiet Tuesdsy night...and had a blast catching up whilst trying out your Australian wine and beers. The chef's choice of fresh halibut with mango salsa was perfectly cookef while my other friend loved her creole style chicken dish. Dessert was not needed but wanted. The sampler hit all the right spots...creme brule..yum. My friends had the cheesecake. Our server was a wonderful young lady, who was knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you.
Fabulous, as always!
I love the Saturday evening Italia Opera Buffet! I have been coming every couple of months for the past few years, and have introduced many friends and colleagues to this wonderful evening. The food amazes me.....buffet meals are nothing I usually enjoy and quite frankly, I usually avoid them, but this one has me enjoying every mouthful! Thank you for consistent good times!
Went for the Opera Buffet, have been before and love it. Requested a window seat which we got and the host very nice. The Opera entertainment was fantastic! Well that is all the good I can say about this night. Sat for approx. 10 mins waiting for a server to take our drink order. Never happened. We had to HUNT someone down to get it. Now at $50 a person you would think there would be a carving station with prime rib, a roast, turkey or something like the last one we went to. Nope, a pasta bar! How cheap can u get? There was a nice selection of pickies, cheeses, olives, salads etc and some typical hot dishes of fish, potatoes etc. but I expected more! Sat and waited for the bill for over 30 mins, again waiter never showed, my husband had to chase a waiter down to get it and then waited anther 15 mins. We left very disappointed on a night we have been very excited about for weeks!
Arriving at 7.50pm for 8pm reservation, our table was immediately available. Due to renovations, the buffet was in the hotel lobby but location was fine. Tenor and soprano were very good, with interesting mix of arias and show tunes (Phantom, notably). Restaurant was already busy, so we thought perhaps we'd booked too late. However, singers were just finishing as we finished dining around 9.20pm. Overall a nice, different evening, which we would highly recommend (if you like operatic voices). A suitable pause of five or ten minutes between "performances" meant that the singing didn't dominate the evening, and was a nice mix of solos and duets, also. Italian buffet was superb, with full gamut of starters, antipasto, seafood and main dishes, hot or cold. Lovely selection of desserts, too.
Brunch with a view
The view was good even on an overcast day. We look out on the bay and the cruise ship pavilion. It must be fun in the summer when the ships are in for cruises to Alaska.
The food was delicious and well prepared. All kinds of seafood and lots of salmon dishes. For American dollar value the price is good around $35/pp plus tip and tax. It is a buffet. I can't remember drinks other than coffee/tea etc.
Great Brunch, lots of selection
We went for the Sunday brunch at Cafe Pacifica, and while a little pricey, for us it was worth it. There were lots of options including sushi, dim sum, salmon welling, prawns, crab legs, international cheese plate, several hot food stations and a lovely dessert table. Usually we have a hard time finding a brunch spot for our whole group because some like the standard bacon and eggs while the others like a bit more adventure. This brunch really worked for us because we all had options and everything was very tasty - extra kudos for having perfectly runny eggs on the eggs benny.

Came here for dine out on a weekday night, fairly early in the evening. It's inside the pan pacific and we got to sit next to the window but it wasn't an ocean view. Food was good, portions were smaller ( probably because it was done out) but still ok !
Dine out Sunday January 24, 2016
Very good value. Tuna appetizer delicious and good portion. Bouillabesse very good. Free tasty bread selection a nice touch. Dessert was outstanding. Did not think the riesling was a good pairing for the Bouillabesse, a dry crisp wine would have been a better pairing. A favorite restaurant already!

The service here was excellent. Our server accomodated our needs individually by recommending wine to helping choose what entree best. The room at Pan Pacific is massive ceilings are high and I assume the view is beautiful during the day. With that said the furniture comes off dated as well as the whole area it could do with a make over? Other than that food was excellent as well as the service.
Dine Out Vancouver 2016
OpenTable on January 16 showed no availability at Cafe Pacifica until February 1. We were staying at the hotel and were about to go elsewhere for dinner, but found that there was room after all. Plenty of room, as it turned out. The restaurant was almost deserted on a Saturday night, and we wondered how many others had been deterred. As for the meal, the consomme and the tuna tataki were tasty, the bouillabaisse good though more like an appetizer in size, the hoisin shortribs tender and flavourful, and the dessert sampler a bit quirky. Service was good, and we were happy to have avoided a walk in the rain.
We booked Cafe Pacifca online only to find out when we arrived that we would be seated in the bar area. Had we known that, we would have had room service. That's a big difference from what we were expecting. The service was good but the next table had a few business types that had been there for awhile and were noisy. Both proteins were subpar for the price we paid. Five Sails was closed for the annual vacation and we paid the same as if we were eating there. That's a huge difference. The actual Cafe Pacifica has always been great. Next time we will call and make reservations and ask where we will be seated.
Sunday Brunch at Cafe Pacifica
While the food was very good (especially the leg of lamb and the sushi rolls), the restaurant was too hectic, too crowded, and too loud to enjoy the meal. There are just too many tables crowded around the buffet area making the restaurant feel like a well-appointed cattle pen.
The server was very busy and did exceptionally well keeping up with drink service and helping to keep the table clear.
Maybe the evening hours are the best time to enjoy this restaurant. I just cannot recommend it for the Sunday Brunch.
