The Grant House Ratings and Reviews

the waitress spent more time chatting with her friends that obviously worked there. My pork was raw and they tried to tell me 130 degrees is safe -who cares - I don't want any meat raw - I order my steaks medium well.

We went to the Grant house to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. The house itself is a beautiful old building from the early days of Vancouver. The food was wonderfully prepared and presented. The flavors were well balanced. I had the tuna and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. There are two drawbacks. The menu seemed a little limited and seemed skewed toward fish and the price of the meal was a bit high. Knowing this, I would go back.

We waited for 20+ minutes for our server to great us. My wife loved the chicken and dumplings, but I was greatly disappointed in the burger. It tasted like a frozen sirloin burger from Costco. I expected fresher food than what I received.

Exceeds expectations again. And a treat with the live music ..
Porch sitting on a beautiful summer evening.
Starters, Dinner, Desserts and Beverages were perfect .. Salmon was in my opinion the best !! The ahi and steak were also perfection. Staff is attentive and so like able.
Specialty cocktails were adventurous and delicious.
Immensely enjoyable evening with excellent epicurean delights.

The Grant House is a great place to enjoy a meal outdoors on their porch on a warm, summer evening - in the shade, of course. The food is consistently good and the service is more than adequate. Nice special occasion, relaxing, comfortable dining experience.

Our waiter seemed overworked. We had to ask twice for coffee refills, twice for bread, and twice for dessert. The hostess, whom we asked about our dessert, was snippy and abrupt.
The salads were served without garnish in little cereal bowls--not attractive, but tasty. The desserts were the best part of the lunch--really good.

Arrived at 3:00 pm to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were seated promptly. I ordered minestrone soup, which was very disappointing. There was no liquid stock in the soup. It looked and tasted as if someone took mixed vegetables from a can and warmed them up in a microwave.

The Grant House is always our first choice for lunch in the downtown Vancouver core. The staff and service are excellent, the menu always reliable, great value for the price. When weather allows, we always prefer the outside seating -- a lovely ambiance, and even though the tables are fairly close together, there is enough space in the open air to feel more "private". I have attended and held business meetings in the upstairs rooms as well, always with rave reviews from the attendees about service and food and beverage selection. The Grant House is top notch in our book, for business or personal dining.

I am very unhappy about how you handled my confusion and my complaint about your happy hour rule limiting veranda dining which is not noted on your website used to make reservation. Also not told when I confirmed by phone that we would have a 5:30 spot on the veranda. Then when we complained, the server said it was because of limited happy hour food availability, but the restaurant was lightly attended. The manager argued with me that it must have been my fault for not asking. The "accommodation" was that we could go buy a glass of wine at the bar. What should have been done is honoring the happy hour menu. The server, food, and ambiance were great. The" customer first" perspective was lousy. Someone should read the customer service book "Give Them The Pickle." I have never been to a restaurant with a happy hour menu that was limited by anything than hours. But at the least, post it clearly on the website. And don't argue with the customer.

Took my wife there for a special lunch based on reviews. Without a doubt, one of the worst dining experiences of my life. Food terrible and scanty. Terrible service - very slow and unattentive. Wife got the wrong food, our soup was inedible, very, very salty. When we said the soup was bad, the waiter asked "too salty?". They knew the soup was bad and still served it. My $11.00 pastrami Reuben had one slice of meat on it. My minestrone replacement soup was a hastily-made garden vegetable. Looked and tasted like mixed vegetables in tomato sauce.
We were happy we only went for lunch, which kept the cost lower than dinner. If one considers that it's likely a low-bid catering contractor at a government park, perhaps the food and service is not surprising. However, we will never return.

We always enjoy our food here.The new summer menu of Albcore was delicious! We thought the flourless cake got much smaller in size than last we had. The server, Ryan was wonderful n was able to have kitchen sub a creamy couscous to just plain ones for my husband.We be back n earlier next time to enjoy the live music!

My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and had reservations on a Tuesday evening. There was live music playing and I was hoping to be seated where we could hear it, but was told nothing was available. There was a table on the porch where we could have heard it , but it was for four, and since we were only two, we were seated outside in the very back at a smaller table. The food was good, the service was slow, not sure I would pay that kind of money again though.

The Grant House has a great location on Officer's Row near Ft. Vancouver. A lot of history associated with the location. We went on a pleasant summer evening, and were able to sit on the patio in the back of restaurant, which was very private and quiet. The entrees were well prepared, and the service was outstanding. Very attentive, but not overly so. They were there just when you needed them.
We would definitely go back for a quiet summer evening. We'd also like to check out the place for lunch as well.

Very accommodating - let our group of six stay out on patio to listen to music and held our reserved table in the sun room until we were ready. This was a family reunion with out of town guests with varied food requirements. The menu is not large, as one would expect with a smaller kitchen, but there was something for everyone and all the food was great.

The drinks were good. We had the chicken sliders and the Ruben sliders, both were good. We ordered the burger and the chicken and dumplings for dinner. The patty of the burger was super small and very dry. The chicken and dumpling had hardly any chicken. The gnocchi tasted store bought and the peas and carrots tasted frozen. We were the only ones in the bar. It was awkward when one of the waiters and a waitress sat the table next to us with a stack of receipts to organize and do the accounting. The bar tender was very nice however the waiter and waitress who were doing the accounting were also going behind the bar to get drinks. The bar tender even offered to make them a drink. I find this behavior extremely unacceptable. You are there to work, not drink. I'm glad that we paid happy hour prices. Overall, it's a beautiful house with so much potential. Stop buying frozen food, make everything in house. The burger should have a nice ratio of meat to toppings and the patty should be moist.

We have frequented Grant house regularly. It usually fills up quickly and is awkward for groups greater than four. Menu has some standby's but with different specials of interest very well plated. Appetizer we had was great. Service was superb. As you would expect Wine a bit high as is menu but you get what you pay for. Great ambiance!!

Not only is the Grant House in a beautiful historic location, but the food, service and atmosphere are very comfortable and inviting. They also do a wonderful job at helping children to feel welcome and relaxed as well.

The setting was wonderful, we sat outside enjoyed the sunshine and the view. The food we had was listed on the menu as being spicy but it wasn't which would have made it taste phenomenal. Did not like their calamari too bland and the sauce was not spicy like it said it was. The food was still good but not out of this world which I would have expected from the Grant house. Enjoyed our visit though and would go back especially for drinks, ambiance and service.
Charming Historic Dining
This is our "go-to" place for special occasion dining! The Grant House is one of a number of stately historic homes on Vancouver's Officer's Row. Great food and great service! The street is tree lined and quiet. Before or after dining, we enjoy taking a stroll under the maple trees. Make it part of your outing for the day by taking in the neighborhood attraction, Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, with its park, museum and reconstructed fur trading post.
We celebrated my mother’s 91 st birthday in the Garden room ,which was lovely. Our waiter was courteous , efficient and provided separate checks which was appreciated. They arranged for a delicious cake and served it for us. They even allowed us to decorate in advance. The food was quite delicious as well. It was a delightful experience.
Great food, Not so great service!
This was my 2nd time eating at the Grant House. 1st time was lunch with a friend; 2nd was dinner with my sweetheart. On both occasions the food was excellent, but the service was abominable! Our waitress disappeared, never checked on us to refill our drinks or see if we wanted anything else, and we finally had to go find someone in order to get our check! I wonder if a 3rd time might have a charm? ---not sure I want to risk it!
