Hidden at the Westin Grand

Comments 231 by Rebecca Bollwitt
Disclosure: Review — I was not paid to write this post (or any other). Our meal at Hidden Vancouver was compliments of The Westin Grand. Please review the Policy & Disclosure section for further information.

The Westin Grand on Robson has been keeping a secret, Hidden Tasting Bar & Social Lounge. After coming in off the sidewalk near Robson and Homer, head up the large winding staircase toward the hotel’s lobby and there you’ll find Hidden. Windows stretching to the height of the massive ceilings surround the purple-coloured dining area lined with rounded booths. Here’s a sampling of the tapas-style dinner John and I recently shared at Hidden:

Our Hidden Experience

We started off by ordering a bowl of roasted hazelnuts, brazilian nuts and almonds ($5) while we looked over the beer list and the rest of the seasonal menu.

We’ve become big fans of beets lately and we really enjoyed medley that was offered. It actually went very will with a handful of roasted hazelnuts and almonds that we still had on the table.

Olive oil glazed baby vegetables with herb marinated grilled tofu ($8)
Candy cane, golden & white beet salad, cranberry hazelnut vinaigrette, goat cheese puree ($12)

Our friendly server, Bob, recommended these two dishes (below). I heard another server recommend them as well but he told us that he’s in love with the lobster poutine. My favourite of the two though was the black cod as it simply melted in my mouth – a nice follow-up to our crunchy appetizers.

Lobster poutine with Montreal cheese curds & béarnaise ($10)
Brown butter cauliflower puree, seared black cod, asparagus, fennel salad, lemon caper vinaigrette ($13)

We went back and forth on this one as we were unsure if we had enough room left in our bellies. The temptation of something “bacon-wrapped” got the best of us and we’re glad we went through with it. Along with the black cod, the striploin was my favourite of the night.

Tiroler bacon wrapped striploin, truffle scented whipped potatoes & green bean bundle ($12)
Flight of crème brûlée ($9)

Ready to skip dessert, Bob assured us that the flight of crème brûlée would be the best way to round out the night. We once again heeded his advice and were not disappointed. The three dishes each had their own flavour: nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla. “All together, you get eggnog!” said Bob with a smile.

John and I decided to take advantage of the beer list, over the wine list, that evening. I went with the Whistler Bear Paw Honey Lager, Phoenix Gold from Phillips Brewing, and the Whistler Brewing Whiskey Jack Ale. John’s selections were the Double Decker IPA (he was a little disappointed there was only one IPA on the list), St-Ambrose Apricot Wheat (a bit of a miss as he’s not big into flavoured beer), and the 650ml Phillips Longboat Chocolate Porter, which was his favourite of the night. The Chocolate Porter even complimented dessert with its cocoa, coffee, and cola notes.

Due to the inexpensive “bites” menu and the list of over 40 BC craft brews, we decided that Hidden would be our new go-to place before a Whitecaps game or show (at the QE Theatre or The Centre). Although now that I’ve told all of you, it’s not so hidden anymore.

    Honestly – after a number of NYE busts, I’ve given up doing anything for the last couple of years. That said, this could be a nice change!

  2. JaimeMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 10:45am PST

    usually don’t do much of anything….. this would be fun!

  3. RyanMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 10:46am PST

  7. plkMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 10:58am PST

    we usually skip the hype and have a quiet night at home.

  8. lbMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 10:58am PST

    either at home being quiet and cozy, or out at a friend’s house with wine and laughs.

  9. KatMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:02am PST

    i love to spend new years eve with my friends and family.

  10. KatieMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:02am PST

    It alternates: usually one year more quiet and in with friends and alternative years at a party, though I’m leaning towards more low-key these days

  11. Stephanie GMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:02am PST

    Usually a house party at a friends place, so this would be a nice change!

  12. MCMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:03am PST

    I usually spend a quiet night at home watching Dick Clark, but a fancy night out would be nice!

  13. KayMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:04am PST

    It’s one of my best friend’s birthday on NYE so we usually go out downtown to celebrate.

  14. mariaMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:05am PST

    The last few years it has been house parties.

  15. Shannon H.Monday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:13am PST

    In years past, I always tried to book a trip somewhere far far away, so I didn’t have to deal with being alone with all my coupled up friends. But this year, I find myself in a relationship for the first time in a long time, and can’t wait to spend time with him and build our own Holiday traditions!!

  16. JodiMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:16am PST

    I try to either go to a house party or one hosted by a hotel. But all that matters is I’m with my friends and family having a great time!

  17. BrianneMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:37am PST

    For the past of couple years, we’ve been in Madrid for NYE and in Spain, it’s a family affair. And before that I used to work at a restaurant. Now, that we’re back in Vancouver, we want to celebrate in style and go to a great party! We would love to celebrate the beginning of 2012 at Hidden and it’s gala 🙂

  18. Lindsay O’GradyMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:41am PST

    I usually get take out sushi and stay in – Would love to change that this year to bring in year 2012!

  19. DaveMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:46am PST

    For the last couple of years it was clubbing and house parties. But I’ve been going less and less to those, way too much money spent, and not that great. So I’m probably going to just go out for dinner with a couple of friends, and just grab a few beers.

  20. KkungMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 11:49am PST

    Usually I just chill with close family at home

  36. DanaMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 1:08pm PST

  68. DebraMonday, December 12th, 2011 — 6:57pm PST

    Oh my! This package looks amazing!!! Sadly, each New Year’s Eve gets less and less fun. When I was younger, I attended parties and had a lot of fun. However, nowadays, I just stay at home and watch TV. I believe I may even have slept before the count down last year. Oops!

  90. SoniaTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 1:02am PST

  99. Marilyn BurgessTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 10:31am PST

    I usually try to conjure up some fun with friends, at which ever over priced party we agree on, but the plans usually fall a part 🙁 NYE… too much pressure!

  105. BethTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 11:52am PST

  111. rajuTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 1:03pm PST


  112. RocheleTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 1:47pm PST

    Most of the time we stay home and have an amazing meal followed by lots of drinks. Just before midnight we gather in the street with our neighbours, hand out sparklers to the kids, and do champagne at midnight. Usually someone has left over fireworks from Halloween. And then it’s over.

  113. KristinaTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 1:48pm PST

    We usually spend time with family and the kids at a party somewhere. No idea what the plan is for this year though.

  114. StephanieTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 1:49pm PST

    I used to go clubbing, which was pretty fun but the past couple of years, I’ve done nothing and each NYE has been a complete bust. My friend and I were talking about doing something like this, this year but tickets are expensive! It sounds like a fantastic night though!

  115. MarinaTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 1:53pm PST

    It’s usually something pretty low key involving some food, drinks and friends. This would solve my problems of figuring out what to do this year!

  116. RubyTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 2:16pm PST

    Stay at home with family

  117. cherylTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 2:17pm PST


  118. SarahTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 2:49pm PST

    Party with my friends!

  119. BrittanyTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 2:58pm PST

    I usually pop champagne in a friends apartment with good company! But going somewhere would be a lovely change 🙂

  120. LauraTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 3:34pm PST

    new years eve for me is all about great food and even better company-i always choose to be with friends and family..

  123. KimTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 4:19pm PST

    Spending the evening with family and friends. Good food, good drinks and great company is the best way to ring in the new year.

  124. GigiTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 4:25pm PST

    Nice homemade dinner and double date 🙂

  125. VivianTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 5:04pm PST

  126. MichelleTuesday, December 13th, 2011 — 5:41pm PST

    It varies, I have gone out with friends, spent it with family, spent it by myself too… Hoping to do something fun this year!

  199. LauraFriday, December 16th, 2011 — 12:14pm PST

    For the past few years I’ve stayed in on New Years Eve. Partly because I’ve never been anywhere that I can dress up for and partly because NYE is an even greater disappointment for a single gal then Valentines Day!
    Taking a huge chance with this entry, maybe I’m meant to go out this year?

  200. Shelley S.Friday, December 16th, 2011 — 5:09pm PST

    Either have friends over or go to friends or go out for a nice dinner. Haven’t done the big party scene in years. Would be fun!

    The new year’s eve was always a day where I was allowed to watch tv for all day without having to worry about homework I was given to do during winter break. Nonetheless, I was watching tv for hours and hours and caught up with all the movies that are playing on tv. Some of the movies continue to play every year I turn on tv on christmas eve.

    Normally we would go to a party at someone’s house or at least hang out with people but last year we rented movies, got some drinks and stayed home. We sadly were both asleep by 11pm, and woke up just in time to say “Happy New Year” at midnight before going to bed! Ha-ha. I’m hoping this year we can do something exciting because we’re 24/27 and even our parents went to parties!

  215. AllenSunday, December 18th, 2011 — 6:58pm PST

  221. ChrisSunday, December 18th, 2011 — 11:34pm PST

    Every year now for almost the past decade, somebody in my group of friends hosts a party, and it’s become tradition to have a roast. So far this year, nobody has made plans yet. But that seems to be a normal occurrence for us.
