Q at the Empress Dining Room

Q Restaurant at The Empress

Q Represents Queen and Country, a Nod to Queen Victoria, With a Modern Twist on Royalty.

Fairmont Empress is closed for scheduled mechanical upgrades and will reopen April 1, 2021. We look forward to welcoming you then. Fresh and flirty, bold and original, Q is an avant-garde take on the traditional with a dash of the now. We serve our pristine Pacific Northwest fare dressed down, in frank simplicity that lets the ingredients do the talking. Our cuisine is vibrant, colourful, inventive and just a bit playful — harvested from some of the region’s top sustainable purveyors, ranchers, fishers and foragers, or our own rooftop garden. The vibe is bustling bistro.

Come as you are and take a seat by the huge decorative copper fireplace. Pair local craft beer with plump mussels and frites or fine BC wine with briny Vancouver Island oysters on the half shell, then sit back and enjoy the solicitous service and mystique of the historical room.
