Profile Last Updated: July 17, 2008
You'll find Herons Restaurant and Lounge just off the lobby of the Fairmont Waterfront hotel. The decor matches the upscale menu perfectly, with the dining room decorated in northwest natural greens and browns. There’s plenty to take in, as the kitchen is open-concept and there are two-storey floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the harbour and the North Shore mountains. During the day, Herons caters mostly to tourists and business people. At night, the white linens come out and the fine dining begins, complemented by a pianist playing softly in the background.
The menu at Herons is likely to change with the seasons, as the restaurant offers fresh, regional cuisine. Dishes are seasoned with herbs from the 2,100-square-foot herb garden on the hotel's third floor deck. Eating at Herons is a healthy affair; about one-third of the menu is devoted to "lifestyle cuisine," which are dishes with a balanced amount of fibre, protein and vitamins. Enjoy a delightful list of choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner at Herons.
Many patrons of Herons Restaurant precede their meal with a cocktail in the lounge. Others arrive at the lounge and stay to enjoy the exclusive menu of snacks, light meals and a variety of pizzas. Alternatively, you can order from the restaurant menu as well. Wine can be ordered by the glass, bottle or half-bottle. The bar also offers a selection of martinis, some of its own invention.
