Oceans 999 Pan Pacific Vancouver Ratings and Reviews
This had to be the worst brunch buffet I've had here. I've been here plenty of times before and never had a problem with the food selection. Unfortunately I don't eat oriental food so the choice was very limited. We were very disappointed with the food selection and then we got the bill, which was ridiculous considering what choices there were.
We had the DineOut Vancouver dinner menu for 8 people. Everyone had and loved the superfood salad and the chocolate extravaganza dessert. Herb crusted ling cod was good with a bit of spicy coconut curry sauce. Braised short rib - some people's meat was on the dry side so more sauce would be better and some side veggies should be added to make the dish less heavy. It came with oyster mushroom so didn't lighten up the dish. Service was VERY slow. Dinner was 3 hours! 1 hour per course for the 3 course DineOut menu! 15% tip/gratuity is added automatically for groups of 8 or more which is lower than the 18% at other places.
The food was really disappointing, hot soup turned out to be warm, entrees looked and tasted so boring and dulled, deserts sited in freezer hours before serving. It shouldn't be a kind of quality came out from a 5 stars hotel, service was ok, I would not come back again.
Poor service, very slow even though there were 4 waiters but only 6 tables occupied. Food was average at best. Very small portions ! Vancouver dine out menu was 40$ but had to pay extra 6$ for some bread,which was probably the most delicious part of the meal. Had been to the restaurant e few times before for their New Years buffet which was quit good, though a bit pricy. Feel very disappointed with the regular restaurant menu.
The food wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing, especially considering it's close to $60/place.
To be fair, the split crab legs and the ridiculously large shrimp helps justify the cost.
The server was friendly but cold. He just didn't seem happy to be there.
I'm not sure I'd return.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
