This was a very unique dining experience. The food and service was excellent. However, the building is amazing. Sitting there thinking about all of the famous people and the history was something else. If you go, tour the entire house.

Made reservations for thanksgiving dinner, waited over and hour and half after reservation time and they ran out of 2 of the 5 items available. Staff was not friendly. The stuffing was inedible, really memorable but not in a good way thanksgiving dinner.

I made reservations for two for a 5pm seating on Thanksgiving Day. We arrived at 4:40pm, there were no seats in the foyer and no tables available in the bar. The hostess said people would be seated in order of their arrival. Huh? I had a reservation. We were seated upstairs in a small room at 5:55. The meal arrived before we had time to finish much of our salad. The plated Thanksgiving meal was stacked, although ample, some items were non-distinguishable, the green beans were raw, the dressing sticky.
My wife ordered a Cosmo, it tasted like grapefruit juice w/ lime, when asked about the drink, the server said, "we get complaints about that all the time." The drink was returned. There is an extensive wine list. Our bill was $110 plus $25 tip. To be fair, we will try it again to see if we have better results on a non-holiday. We were disappointed.

Went here for Thanksgiving and was very disappointed with the food. The turkey was moist but salty, the stuffing was dry, the green beans were not cooked, the cranberry sauce was too bitter to consume, even the pies were not good. It is such a charming venue, but something must be done about the food. I see this exact review from Thanksgiving 2015. I wish I had read it before I trusted them with my Thanksgiving.

More often than not, we have a Thanksgiving meal at a restaurant. All too many turn out to be food factory experiences. Thanksgiving at The Grant House, however, was quite different. The menu was simple and straight forward. There were two choices for salad, and two for dessert. Otherwise, the menu was fixed, except for beverages. There was a wide selection of wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages.
This made it easy for the service staff, and the kitchen. The kitchen obviously took its time. The turkey and sides were perfectly prepared with a lot of TLC. Servers were never in our face, yet we never had to wait a long time when we needed something or it was time for the next course. A very, very pleasant experience on a busy day.

Absolutely wonderful experience. The drinks, wine, and food were all excellent. The service both in the bar and in the restaurant made the evening special. The bartender made excellent suggestions regarding the wine choices. He was friendly and knowledgeable. Our server had personality plus and was attentive without being intrusive. Will return as we had a wonderful time and love the special setting of The Grant House and the history of Officer's Row.

The atmosphere was historic, which is the reason we selected it. The dining room was a bit tight and there were a couple of parties who were enjoying themselves at high volume. The food was good but not as impressive as I expected. Overall, it is an excellent restaurant but a bit of a let down.

The Grant House is in a beautiful historic neighborhood. The history of the building is interesting and provides a nice background to the dining experience. The staff was friendly an efficient and the atmosphere was relaxed and inviting. All of the food from the appetizer to the dessert was delicious. We especially enjoyed the homemade soups and the gingerbread cake.

We're at the Grant House at least once a month. Primarily to see & hear Doug & Judy Smith perform. Love meeting friends there. Great wine list, as well as other tasty drinks. Wonderful Tapa menu. If really hungry, fantastic dinner menu. Nice, friendly Happy Hour, with great menu. Would absolutely, proudly recommend to anyone & everyone! 👍

This was our fifth time in just over a year. The Grant House is becoming one our our favorites for anniversaries and get-togethers. The food is exceptional. The service great. The historical atmosphere is charming and warm welcoming. I personal like the quietness of the Grant House as I have hearing challenges. During the summer, the Grant House porch and outside is open to dinning, which was just wonderful. I would highly recommend the Grant House for your next lunch or dinning outing.

We were seated in an area that seemed like the back porch--at a table up against a wall. Another couple was there. We might as well have been eating with them as we could hear all they said--and I'm sure they heard us. Server also seemed to be in a hurry. This was our first time there, and most likely our last.

Love the building and old world charm! Food was good and a nice variety of menu options. Waitress was pleasant, service was a little slow but it was suppose to be a leisurely lunch. If you had a limited time, might want to warn them.

Shout out to Nolan for his impeccable service. The cauliflower was amazing, the romesco sauce a great match. The salmon with red cabbage was like nothing I've tasted before. So memorable. Will definite return next time I'm in the area.

I was so pleased to share my love of the Grant House with friends from out of town. They were impressed when we drove up with the outside charm of the old home with flags flying. The interior had a great old-time ambiance. The candle on the table always gets my vote for making the meal special . Our waitress was very attentive and the food came promptly. It was delicious - a shrimp Alfredo entree. We were able to have a nice conversation without a lot of noise in the room. After dinner I showed my friends the logs in the wall that had been left uncovered to show the original building material. They were surprised. Wonderful evening - we'll be back!

When we checked in,they could not find us on their system, but luckily, we ended up having a table to sit down. They later did find our reservation through the opentable.
They seemed to be short of service people. One waitress was taking care the entire dinning room which believed to have around 8 tables. The waitress was too busy too take good care of our table, we had to wait a long time to get our coffee refilled, we didn't even have the clean plates and forks for our desserts.
Believed that the waitress was too busy and overloaded on her job, she could not carry any conversation to us or smile on her face., not to mention the dinning room manger, she was kind of quiet and busy too..
I ordered the quiona salad bowl, the salad and quiona were fresh but lack of flavor, i had to shake some salt and pepper to add the flavor.
This was our second time dinning there for the girls get together and was a disappointed experience.

We really like this place allot. We have returned many times and have never been disappointed at the food or service. The atmosphere of the historic building is wonderful both inside and out. As far as we are concerned it is one of Vancouver's best. The menu and food is wonderful, with a great value.

Was a treat for my kids anniversary. Suzy was very accommodating handling the arrangements. Son and daughter-in-law said they were treated like royalty, the meal and desert were superb and the historic setting made a memorable experience.

The Grant House is a wonderful old Historic Building on Officer's Row with all kinds of charm. We had lunch on the Porch on a warm, late summer afternoon. The view was serene and added to the relaxing atmosphere. The food service was prompt and hot, and the meal itself was delicious. The only blemish on the whole experience was our server who basically disappeared after our food was delivered. We ran out of Water and Iced Tea and had difficulty finding anyone to remedy that situation. I choose to assume this was an isolated incident, and definitely plan to return to the Grant House in the future.

There was 4 of us in our party, 3 out of the 4 meals that were ordered were good.
The steak was tender and very good. The pork had a nice flavor. My dish was good a little cold, the cilantro on top should have been chopped. Do not order the Chicken and Dumplings. I wanted to order this dish but was glad I didn't. It was terrible and had no flavor. The dumplings were not dumpling instead they were gnocchi, tasted like oyster crackers that had been sitting in liquid. Setting was nice and the grounds are very pretty.

I have a lot of fondness for the Grant House, but was less than happy with the reception I received the other day. Mind you, I made reservations for an early dinner on the veranda. When I arrived the prime seats were taken over by the "happy hour" crowd. That's well and good but the hostess made it clear to the person trying to seat me that I needed to be at a two person table rather than the corner table I preferred which was away from the crowded area. I am sorry, but when I plan to spend a nice sum of money for dinner I do not want to feel like I am a second class citizen. I eventually agreed to be seated in the back and also told them to expect my husband to arrive shortly. Well, apparently he stood at the hostess stand for more than several minutes and was basically ignored. He was not a happy camper when he was finally seated with me. Dinner was okay but the steaks were way too fatty and mine was not cooked sufficiently. Did I return them? No, because I felt so badly for our waitperson who had a brace on her leg. The twice baked potatoes on the other hand were excellent and so were the cocktails. As I said, have a lot of fondness for the Grant House and will be back but the hostess needs to improve her customer service skills and attitude. Grant House isn't the only game in town anymore!

We have been to The Grant House mant times over the last 5 years and this time, I did not enjoy my Pork Loin- just too dry. It was a date nite for me and my young son. Upon paying in which we have a voucher, the server Kasey said we are not entitled to the BOGO free entree since we did not order 2 drinks. Unless my eye sight is going bad, I did not see that at all on the voucher to include 2 drinks. We have use the same voucher before and there had never been an issue. So I told her to give us another drink to go since we were on way out. It was the way she announced it. Our reservation was for 7.45 but we were in the area so we went in at 7.15p. We told the hostess after waiting for over 5mins. She said someone had just left and the table would be ready soon. A couple walked in, announced they did not have any reservation and one of the waitresses escorted them inside to dinning table! A few minutes passed, we waited and another couple came in and announced they did not have a reservation as well. Guessed what, that same server picked up 2 menus and walked them into the main dinning room. I walked up and explained we had been waiting over 15minutes by then. The hostess who greeted us when we first arrived said our table would be ready soon? When we were seated, we noticed those 2 sets of couples (no reservations) who came after us were already in dinning room. That left a bad taste for me.

I really like Grant House for its lovely setting and atmosphere, as well as its menu with lots of variety and lots of options for showcasing the best of the season. I have been here for quiet lunches with friends and family, but I also think it would be great for brunch or for dinner, and I would love to go sometime for live music, afternoon tea & dessert, or pretty much anything else. This place is charming and delightful.
