This was our fifth time at this special restaurant. Each time the creative dishes surprise and delight us. These guys are very creative the constantly changing menu means that you don't need to re-visit the same dishes every time.

We came to this restaurant last year based on it's appearance in Macleans' Top 50 Restaurants in Canada publication. We enjoyed the 7-course alla famiglia tasting menu, so we decided to try it again. Every course was beautifully presented and showed a sophistication and elegance that will guarantee that we will continue to come here, year after year. We made... More

We came here in 2011 when visiting VanCity and had a fabulous experience. When we talked about coming back to Vancouver this summer we both were excited to try La Quercia again. Our experience was just as good the second time through. The service is professional and not intrusive. The food is varied, unique and exceptionally well prepared. We did... More

Luckily we were able to make a reservation with little notice on their first day back from vacation. This is small, cozy, but comfortably elegant space that's busy. We went with the Alla Famiglia, a seven course Chef's menu which consisted of 3 starters, 2 pastas, a main, and dessert. This is similar to the Japanese "omakase" - you leave... More

Even though this restaurant is difficult to get a reservation it is definitely worth the effort. We dined family style and we rewarded with a number of absolutely delicious dishes that kept on coming. It was a wonderful tasting delight. This meal stands out as one of my most memorable food experiences.

This always busy small restaurant serves innovative, well executed Italian cuisine on a consistent basis. The tables are tightly packed so this is not the place for a quiet, private dinner. I recommend trying their less formal bar annex with its chalkboard menu and more informal feel. You get the same food, but in a more convivial, less starchy atmosphere.

Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed Chef Adam Pegg's seven-course dinner served family style. Chef chooses the items--the "chef's menu"--based on our selection of red Italian wine, and then the food followed. Appropriate size portions. Inventive dining experience and chance to sample many exceptional dishes. Most memorable items were the Burrata Salad, Stinging Nettle Agnolotti (a stand-out dish similar to... More

Husband took me to this restaurant for a special occasion because I LOVE pasta! We did the 7 course secret menu. It was beyond our expectations! Ingredients were fresh; they play with your palates! It's awesome! Compared with other fine dining, I don't think this is an expensive place. Definitely will come back for special occasions since their menu is... More

My wife, adult daughter and I visited on a Tuesday evening and had a wonderful dining experience. The service was attentive and extremely friendly. After much discussion, we opted for the 7 course chef's menu. While my wife and I eat everything, our daughter is a pescatarian which proved not to be a problem. All three appetizers were outstanding -... More

This restaurant moved from "neighborhood" to "destination joint" after some significant awards catapulted it to fame in the last few years. Unfortunately, La Quercia is a case of "got too big for its boots". On arrival, we were instructed by the waiter that the 6 of us (three adult couples) had to eat family style. With that instruction behind us,... More
