We'll be in Vancouver this Fri. night before leaving on a cruise. Since I've never been before, and am unlikely to be back soon, I'm trying to find a great restaurant experience for us to enjoy. Unfortunately, the Cannery, my first choice, was booked. I currently have a reservation at Blue Water Cafe, but I'm not sure whether it's likely to be nice...but not great. We're staying at the Marriott near Canada Place so don't want to go too far afield from there (a short cab ride is fine) as we'll probably be feeling the time difference from the East Coast by dinnertime.
We'd like someplace a little upscale, with a fun atmosphere, and highlighting regional ingredients.
Is Blue Water a good choice? Other recommendations?
