    We had a nice bottomless brunch at the ARC. I've heard great things and was excited to go for my birthday weekend celebrations! The service was slow to start but once we were able to put in our first round of orders it was awesome. Our server pushed us to end with the ooie gooie skillet, even though we initially said we were tapping out. I'm so glad she did! It was a wonderful way to end the whole experience.

    Our server, Darrin, was outstanding. I haven’t experienced this level of service in a long time. He truly earned every bit of his tip. The food was good and the speed it came out was on point. The only issue is the price. Very steep to pay over $160 (tax and tip included) for two people to enjoy brunch. That price is without any additional charges (mimosa flight, specialty coffees, etc). Last year the price was $50 per person, so a $15 increase in one year is excessive. Due to pricing, this brunch will remain a once a year occasion.

    It was a very nice experience overall, although I found the sablefish a bit salty. Even though the fish portion was reasonable, I wish it came with more greens/vegetables. Thank you.

    3 of us. Shared the Burrata and Beet salad..absolutely outstanding and definitely enough for 3. All opted for Short Rib for main. Falling apart tender, nice little potatoes/carrots/parsnips. Only complaint, could have used a bit more of the very good sauce. Dessert..the Black Chocolate Cake with ice cream, cherries, praline, Valhrona Ganache...1 for the table and it was huge and could have fed 6 people!!! Really really great dessert that we kept going back for just one more bite :) Shared a bottle of Rioja. wine list is a bit sparse. Menu was short but seemed a good variety. There on a Sunday night so very quiet. Sound level was fine but I can imagine if it was busy that talking/hearing might be an issue because the tables are very large so felt like the third in our party was a bit far away. Server was excellent.

    The bottomless brunch was great. A delicious selection. Instead of buffet you order small plates. Although, they are small plates, some of the items are rich and filling.

    This was a business lunch to introduce a VP to our Team. Our server Jacinta was her usual lively, bubbly self. She is always on top of her game. However for the first time we were not pleased with our experience as a whole. The 2 salads that were ordered took far too long and in fact were removed from the bill. We brought our guests there because the service and the food are always on point and it was very disappointing to have today be the day that things did not flow as we expect from your establishment. We appreciate the meals being removed from the bill, but it was unacceptable kitchen service today particularly when we were told that it was one of the steak meals that was taking so long even in fact the other 3 in the party were half way through their meal when the salads arrived.

    The best brunch in Vancouver. The only disappointing thing is they don’t include a mimosa in the $65 pp price. You have to pay an extra $17 or $19 for a mimosa!

    We had a table reserved for two for Xmas Dinner.....the table was ready , the menu options were excellent as was the food and the service.......a few reservations being the music and noise level, also a very open layout which does not lend itself to an intimate ambiance, however, none of these prevented us from thoroughly enjoying a very pleasurable dining experience....compliments to the chef, a delicious meal, perfectly cooked and full of flavour...

    I took my family here for the “bottomless Christmas Eve brunch” and was extremely disappointed. Unfortunately, I fell prey to the restaurant’s misleading and false advertising. I’m writing this review in the hopes of saving others the same experience. Although the brunch is repeatedly promoted as “bottomless” and “all you can”, in fact, only the food is bottomless. All beverages, except slow drip coffee (which was pitifully brewed and barely acceptable for human consumption) and plain breakfast tea, are additional charges. Even a cappuccino is extra charge and a small mimosa is $19. For somebody who believed they pre-paid for a true “bottomless” brunch this was quite surprising. To be clear, nowhere is it stated that beverages are additional. The brunch was heavily advertised and this critical information was never conveyed. There is NO fine print. Even when I called ARC to confirm my “bottomless” brunch and specifically asked about the drinks, the hostess I spoke to did not clarify that drinks are not included. The restaurant is clearly relying on it’s misleading advertising to draw in a crowd. As a well-traveled, experienced diner, and a lover of brunching, I have never heard of a “bottomless” and “all you can” brunch that only includes food. The food and ambience were fine, but ultimately were not enough to overcome blatantly misleading advertising, and I left disappointed that I chose this restaurant for our special Christmas Eve experience. I would not come here again and I could not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Hi, my friends and I initially booked for the brunch menu. When we arrived, we were told that there was no brunch menu nor was the regular lunch menu offered. We were very limited for options and because my friends and I had to make the drive to Vancouver, we decided to stay. I just wish that we were given a heads up a head of time so we could make plans to go to another restaurant with more than just sandwiches and burgers as the main courses on the menu.
