Griffins at the Hotel Vancouver

Griffins at the Hotel Vancouver (900 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, phone 604-684-3131) is a decidedly upscale and yet casual restaurant in the sumptuous Hotel Vancouver in the middle of downtown. Most of the patrons at lunch were wearing business attire, but this was not surprising considering that the restaurant is located very close to Vancouver’s main business and financial district. The attraction here is the lunch buffet which is a somewhat formidable $27, but at this price offers a good degree of quality as well as the expected quantity. Pictured below are some of my choices from the buffet table: there is a variety of cold and hot selections including seafood, salads, soup, cuts of meat and pasta dishes, as well as some very tempting desserts.

    The best dessert buffet in Vancouver!
    Whenever I want a treat, I go for dinner and the free dessert buffet at upscale Griffins.
    Very high standard for main course and appetisers and good service too.

    sorry to hear that you had a bad experience.

    I agree, the buffet is more geared towards seafood fans, and those who enjoy other meats. I personally love seafood so it is a good buffet for me. Where else can you get unlimited fresh salmon, mussels, clams, prawns, as well as cuts of beef and pork? As well as cheesecakes with strawberry sauce and cream puffs for dessert? The quality is pretty good for a buffet, in my opinion.

    It might be a good idea to make a suggestion to the restaurant to label their food items better.
