Located on W 33rd Ave in Queen Elizabeth Park, Seasons in the Park is an elevated restaurant serving Pacific Northwest Dishes. They have a beautiful panoramic view of the city and we were very fortunate to reserve the last spot on Saturday to try their Dine Out Menu.
Upon entering, the atmosphere is ambient and it is spacious with many seating inside. You’re instantly welcomed and you feel the warmth and comfort of this place. I really liked the layout of the restaurant because no matter where you sat there was a view to gaze on.
We started off with the appetizers and we chose the Braised Meatballs with tomato sauce, grana padano and basil, and the Mushroom Soup truffle oil with chives. The meatballs were very good, but the sauce was amazing. The meatballs weren’t too flavourful so the sauce combined made it very delicious, it complemented very well together. The Mushroom Soup was creamy and appetizing, it paired very well with the complimentary bread they serve.
Then we had the Prime New York Striploin Peppercorn Demi-Glace, with roasted tomatoes and seasonal vegetables. We asked for medium rare and it was juicy and rich, the sauce was amazing also. We also ordered the Butternut Squash Ravioli with Fresh Sage, which had black truffles, white wine, cream and toasted pumpkin seeds. This was definitely the best ravioli I’ve ever had. The sauce was creamy and the butternut squash added a touch of sweetness to the dish, while the fresh sage balanced all the flavours out.
We finished off our meal with the Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Coulis and the Creme Brulee with Orange Zest and Vanilla Bean. The chocolate cake was very rich and quite flavourful, and the mousse was smooth and delectable. The Creme Brulee was the smoothest and most heavenly one I’ve had. The caramelized sugar top had the perfect amount of crackle and it was so satisfying cracking into the top and hitting the custard base. It was silky and rich, with a beautiful texture on top.
Overall, my dining experience at Seasons in the Park was wonderful, everything about it was pleasant. The beautiful view, friendly and accommodating staff and atmosphere, well presented, seasoned and mouth-watering dishes made it an unforgettable dining experience. I highly suggest trying out Seasons in the Park, it is a very nice place to have a nice meal, a date night or celebrate birthdays and anniversaries.
