Business dinner preferably in Richmond/Vancouver area (Trying to avoid DT)

Hi all,

What is a impressive yet quiet place for a business dinner? I have a request from an non-local executive who is looking to impress his clients who are usually from out of town as well . He used to take them to the Marketplace in Shangri-La but he tells me that it's actually too noisy there for business. He would like impressive dinner that doesn't serve tiny/fusion food/French (No Lumiere/West/etc), but also a place that is quiet. Money is not a concern to him. I could only think of Five Sails at Pan Pacific... Is there any other recommendations? He would actually perfer not DT area. Thanks a lot in advance.

If you want to be OUTSIDE of Downtown then you're limiting your choices by a lot but one recommendation would be Chop (http://www.chop.ca), it's in Richmond and it's got a pretty nice ambiance. More of steakhouse, there have been hit & miss with the food & service but it's definitely a nice place to take business clientele without entering Downtown or West End.

If by impressive, you mean the food, and not only the ambiance/decor, go to La Buca (http://www.labuca.ca/)

Try The Cannery. The last time i went was 5 years ago but the food was excellent and I'm pretty sure it has everything you looking for.

My only complaint with the Cannery restaurant is the drive getting in is suck a PITA since 9/11.
Food is pretty good, still.

Cannery has been given an extension for until after the Olympics. After that, they're gone; they weren't able to find a new suitable location.

Chop is not sophisticated enough, the following are too loud:

Cannery, La Buca, Bogarts, Trattoria.

Get a private room at ShoreClub, the exact opposite of small bites dining (steaks):

http://www.theshoreclub.ca/

Or there are also private rooms at Market. Le Crodocile is great for the food (French) but not sure if it is quiet enough:

If he wants, he can get a private room at Cioppino's which serves great Italian food:

+1 for food, I live pretty close by, been there a couple of times, But not for what OP is asking for IMO, can get a little bit noisy, the place can feel a little cramped cause it's tiny and they serve quite a few people
