After a day in downtown, S and friends suggested we go to Seasons in the Park for dinner. Located within Queen Elizabeth Park, the restaurant had some pretty nice views overlooking the city’s skyline at night. The ambiance in the restaurant is dim and romantic, but very traditional with rustic decor. Dinner starts off with complimentary bread and butter.
Braised Veal Cheeks with Porcini Mushroom Risotto
For myself, I got the Braised Veal Cheeks with Porcini Mushroom Risotto. Two veal cheeks braised in red wine sat on top of the Arborio risotto. The veal cheeks were extremely tender and flavourful. However, I thought the risotto was just average.
Fraser Valley Chicken
S got the Fraser Valley Chicken, which was seasoned with lemon, thyme and garlic. It came with some vegetables and mashed potatoes. S said it was just average and thought it was slightly bland.
Overall, we found the food to be just average. You are really paying for the view and ambiance here. The food itself isn’t very memorable.
– Nice city views
– Great ambiance
– Food was average – nothing special
– Only paid self parking or valet parking.
