Need a rec for a nice restaurant near Robson (Vancouver, BC)

Going to Vancouver at the beginning of April and I'm looking for a nice restaurant for a dinner on monday night with my girlfriend. Would have loved to go to Lumiere, but we're staying at the Marriott Pinnacle and don't have a vehicle at our disposal.

    1. Showcase at the Pinnacle is supposed to be very good.

      1. I would second the recommendation for the Pinnacle restaurant. Fabulous food, service and presentation. The only hotel restaurant I would go to in Vancouver.

        1. joe fortes is for tourists, not that great and over priced. the only good restaurants on robson are the japanese ones down by denman st. or tapastree just across denman st. on robson.

          again, like always, i recommend Parkside - it's on haro st, just off denman. walking distance from pinnacle or a short cab ride

          TapasTree is a nice neighbourhood restaurant or Hapa Izakaya on Robson for yummy japanese

          1. re: pants

            I disagree, I like Joe Fortes! It is expensive but everything I have had there has been great and I have always had great service too.

          2. Lumiere isn't exactly out in the middle of nowhere. It would be about $15 for a cab ride. Never give up the dream.
