Surprisingly good for an airport restaurant. Despite the lineup at the entrance we were seated within a few minutes. The service is fast and polite. The food is pricy but that's what you would expect in a captive market.
The Veggie Portobello was fresh and had great flavours. The coleslaw was also pretty good. Mrs Canuck had the chicken stir-fry and also said it was very very good.
In and out in under 30 minutes at lunch time is excellent.
Our flight was delayed and we have almost 2 hours to sit around at YVR, and Canucks Bar & Grill seemed to be the only full bar near the USA terminal. Looking at the big TV screens on the walls with different sport programs on, I could imagine it must be nice for the travelling Canucks hockey fans if a game is on. The food was a little pricier as expected considering it is at the airport, but the quality was surprisingly decent. I was feeling a little under the season so I didn’t drink any alcohol. But they do provide a premium selection of wines, beers, and spirits.
