So many wonderful things to say about this gem of a restaurant. I have been coming here with loved ones for many years. The atmosphere and ambiance is very beautiful, warm and inviting. The menu is always changing with delicious items that can accommodate all palettes using the finest ingredients. The wine and cocktail selection is spot on which is so great for both a cheeky happy hour or to pair with a great meal. The servers here are always really well informed, with helpful suggestions and great service. I will continue to come to the Shaughnessy for many milestones and years to come.

I have been coming to this incredible restaurant for almost 20 years. The ambiance is unbeatable - a calm and serene garden setting, recently renovated interior, bar, and outdoor patio, classy yet always comfortable. Despite being very busy, the service is consistently excellent. Their team provide fantastic recommendations, especially for wine pairings. The food, however, is my favourite part! They have updated the menu many times over the years, always using top quality local ingredients, offering elevated takes on classic dishes. Many options are plant-based and they are totally accommodating for those with food allergies or modifications (i.e. vegan and gluten free). All in all, one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. A must for special occasions as well as impromptu happy hour. Thank you Shaughnessy! (picture of my most recent meal, the delectable braised lamb roulade)

Had very poor service during their happy hour. Treated us like we’re cheap third class customers. Little did they know we also tip good service, and usually tip 25%+, and we frequently eat in higher end restaurants. Only gave 5% tip, but should have been 0%. It seemed like such a pain for them to serve a second glass of wine for us. Happy hour food was mostly deep fried garbage too.

The atmosphere is always great. Good food too. The service is usually lacking and today was no exception. Our first server was rude and dismissive. Our second server was better. But this is usually the case with this place. If it wasn't for the park and location the service would put this place out of business.

Very nice setting in the garden with great views. They have nice patio seating. The food quality was good and generous portions. Parking is free but often times hard to find a spot. Would like to see improvement in terms of service i.e. order accuracy and server attentiveness etc. the next time we visit. Four stars.
