best,most unique resturant in Vancouver

We are going to Vancouver next week and one couple wants to eat the most exquisit food, and I want a view. Any chance? Will dump the view if the food is out of this world. What about Blue Water Cafe, or LK Dining lounge.
Thanks for your help

  1. LK is nothing special. Blue Water is very nice,they're part of the Top Table group.(Cin Cin,West,Araxi)They have a patio,but it's a very urban view. For an exceptional view and food,I recommend the Raincity Grill. The chef and sommolier have a very regional philosiphy,combined with breathtaking views of English Bay complete with sureal sunsets. it's a must for anyone touring Vancouver in the Summer.

    FYI:The celebration of light fireworks display has a show on Wednesday Aug 3rd and the grande finale on Saturday Aug 6th. The patio at Raincity is a prime spot to watch.

    1. Most exquisite food is easy. West, hands down. Worth giving up the view in my book.

      1. I was at LK for brunch on Sunday and have to say that it was a disappointment...

        The menu looks good - but the food's lack-lustre and arrived late and tepid. Service was adequate, but not attentive - and we were one of only 1/2 dozen tables.

        Nice website, nice decor - too bad about the food and service!

        1. Blue Water Grill exqusite seafood. No view.
