Came here for a birthday party. Atmosphere was great since we were there with a group of friends. Small portions of food, so if you're a big eater or pretty hungry, you might want to eat before you eat. We had about 16 people in our group and I think they wanted to bring all the food out at once,... More

This place is a joke, right? The menu just stinks. To start, no bread, no butter, no atmosphere. Just fish, yeah, if anyone in your party ain't into it, then they get nothing! The fish offerings are fair, nothing special. Enjoy watching people come in, search the menu, see the pain in their faces as they desperately search, and then... More

I ate dinner at Cork & Fin earlier this week. I was able to walk in without a reservation on a Tuesday night and unlike some previous reviewers I had excellent and attentive service throughout my meal. I really liked the "feel" of the restaurant. I do not drink wine so I can't assess the "Cork" quality of this restaurant.... More

As the title says, fresh seafood AND at a great/fair price. Busy the night we stopped in without a reservation. Happy to sit at the bar. Very friendly attentive staff. Casual atmosphere which both my wife and I enjoy. If you are looking for a waiter in a tux to clean the crumbs off your table, this is not the... More

We all had the 3 course menu for $32 + a $4 upcharge for lobster. Reasonable, but that should represent enough food that you leave sated. We liked everything we tasted, and were all pretty happy with our choices, but it is a very small menu, so check it out before you go. The Heirloom Beets was teensy, weensy. Even... More

We returned to Cork and Fin for Dine Out. It was a savory menu. We had sun choke soup and the tuna for appies nicely done. The mains were steak and ling cod, nice sides and good presentation. Informal but attentive service.

$32 for a 3 course prix fixe menu is good enough to come back for but Happy Hour Oysters everyday is definitely a must have. Old brick restaurant with quiet mezzanine was right down my alley...actually Blood Alley! Seafood Towers, were a fraction of the price of Blue Water and Coast as well. Can't wait to return with more peeps!

Ok the service is not 5, or even 4 star but it's very friendly and they try hard. Combine this with top notch food at very reasonable prices and I for one am VERY happy. I would rank this my favourite restaurant in Vancouver right now. The atmosphere is excellent. The location is right on the cusp of Gas Town... More

I must say I never heard of this restaurants before and i'm not sure i will come back. The food was good but nothing new, nothing that would make me come back. The portion was very small, and expensive. The drink was also very expensive... $10 for a ceasar really? The service was very bad. The waitress was not very... More
