Dinner: Top of Vancouver or Cloud 9?

As topic, which place should I hit up for dinner? I know a lot of you are going to say "none of the above", but my this dinner is for my grandma, who really wants to go to a revolving restaurant.

Which has better food/seats/view?

Thanks very much in advance for your opinions

cloud 9 has got to be the shittest restaurant.
they definitely changed owners and the food is crap.
if you want revolving restaurant go to the one at harbour center.

Although my experience is not all so recent here was how I rated them.

Cloud 9 - went like 5 years ago and the food was horrible

Harbour Centre - Went about 5 years ago and it was avg at best

Top Of Vancouver - went 2 years ago to dineout and it was actually pretty decent.

Ended up going to both.

Top of Vancouver is MUCH more decent. Cloud 9 was easier on the wallet with the $35 dollar 3 course sets though. However, Cloud 9's service was VERY lacking. Not really the server's fault but I'd have to say they are tremendously understaffed.

bumping up this super old thread!

gf's birthday is coming up and im stuck between cloud 9 and top of Vancouver. I know she wants a good view with good food...

so, currently I have a reservation for top of Vancouver, only because I wasn't aware that there were multiple revolving restaurants lol.

doing some searching on google, they have many mixed reviews.

has anyone been to either or recently and able to help me out as to which one is better?
we'll be going on a Monday night in October, so im hoping it wont be to busy at either, so I assume service would be decent at both...(I hope lol)

TIA

If she likes a view but it doesn't have to be from a revolving restaurant, then there are lots of options.

For night time, one of my favourite options is the Salmon House in West Vancouver

Shitty photo but this is their nighttime view:

I definitely agree, but I feel that View > Food by about 10,000,000x at the revolving restaurant, so this would still be my choice if I had to dine with a view of the city. But if it were my date to organize I'd be arranging dinner somewhere awesome without a view and having dessert already picked up and sitting in a cooler in my trunk along with a big ass blanket for having dessert at the Cypress lookout looking over the city if it wasn't raining.

I like the sounds of the other restaurants. But when we had our anniversary date a while ago it was at some restaurant in or near van dusen I think? Anyways I told her back then that I was debating the revolving restaurant or the botanical garden restaurant we ended up at and I could see her eyes light up when I said revolving restaurant, so I gotta take her to one for her bday lol.

I usually would pull something off like that...have every detail planned and keep her in the dark until she gets there, but I'm very limited to what I can do lol...got diagnosed with epilepsy last year...so I'm not able to drive right now, so it's either her driving or a cab

Horizons
I haven't gone in quite a few years, but when my family lived in Burnaby, it was one of the places that we found consistently above average.
Probably your best bet for a dinner with a view?

Horizons is good I agree, but the view is pretty dramatically below the other options in this thread IMO.

Just went to Seasons In The Park at QE Park.

Reserved a window seat overlooking DT, not a bad view.

Spoiler!

How did you get a window seat?? I went there for our anniversary and asked for a window sear while I was reserving a month in advance and the bitch told me I can't pick where I wanted to sit...instead they sat us beside a large group of old Asian business men who talked louder than a fart can >.< ruined the night

Out of those two, Top of Vancouver.

If given the choice to do another restaurant with a view, The Observatory on Grouse. That view > all restaurants in the area, I think. The food is typically pretty killer as well. It's also pretty killer on your wallet. But I personally think it's worth it.
