Wonderful Epicurean Delight

The Cork and Fin is a small restaurant that specializes in tasty and well presented dishes to share. Everything we tried was enjoyed by all of us and we will go back next time we are in Vancouver BC.

I like fish dishes. The service here is great. The kitchen is right there and they were able to adapt the dishes to some food allergies I had and make it specially for me. That's amazing. Great good and great service. I like the old world feel of the brick and the area of gastown. A very romantic place.

2nd restaurant on my dine out Vancouver list and again I am disappointed! We made an 8 o'clock reservation and didn't get seated until 9... Had to stand outside of the restaurant for a good 25 minutes before we even got a seat at the bar where they comped us a round of drinks for the inconvenience. Didn't get to... More

The food is delicious, the atmosphere is warm and cozy and the service is friendly. It's the perfect place to spend your Saturday night (or any other night).

Lovely setting, always look forward to Cork and fin. Located in gas town this stunning restaurant is always a favourite of mine. Both visits have been for a date and both time the staff and food has been exceptional. They are attentive while not pestering you like some places seem too. Seafood was top notch with a great drinks menu... More

We've eaten in Michelin starred restaurants all around the world and yet I was blown away by the food at Cork & Fin. Everything was good and some of the dishes were absolutely delicious. We were there on a Saturday night. It wasn't too busy and the service was friendly. They went the extra mile. Highly recommended.

In summary, great place to be. (Choice of) food, service, hospitality, location and of course, enjoy the crowd in Vancouver's trendiest neighborhood, Gastown. Yes, it rains a lot in Vancouver but then this place will put sunshine on a plate - no, I am not close with the owners nor do I own any stock.

Went on a Saturday night with reservations and were very disappointed. Food was just okay, nothing exceptional. The big letdown was the service... we waited so long for the second course that we had to remind them that we had more food coming. Once received, 15 minutes later, the crab was overcooked. I would not recommend this restaurant as there... More

Definitely not one of the cheapest places in Vancouver. However, the food was really good and the service friendly. We were a big group and they split the bill without us asking, really nice. 18% service was automatically added, not really nice!

Good food and good choices. The service was perfect, attentive but not intrusive. Great place for sharing food and memories. Came here based on recommendation from Fairmont waterfront.
