Love this area. Hipsters galore. This restaurant was hip, tattoo trendy with gorgeously displayed dishes that weren't just eye catching but also delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here! Almost came back the next day for more....

In the older section of Vancouver which we really liked. Still had an old fashioned but new and trendy kind of feel. Wine was reasonable, food was excellent. I had Steak Dianne and my wife had Coho Salmon. Both great.

L'abattoir is a restaurant that suprises you on many levels. First the name: "The slaughter House". This could be misleading and one could expect lots of meat! However the menu is very well balanced. The food is deliciously prepared and unpretentious. The service was impeccable and very attentive. The ambiance is electric especially in the bar area on the main... More

food was good. Presentation was lovely and the server very attentive. I had the steak. Gas town location made it easy to find but parking was a problem. There are so many good restaurants in Vancouver I don't know if I will be back or not.

A great venue, busy with a great atmosphere. People were queuing for a table and its not surprising. The food was fantastic and very creative. staff were friendly. Tables were a bit close together so you felt a little overlooked. But loved the overall experience.

Fodor's guide led us to this restaurant established four years ago in vibrant Gastown where we stopped for an early dinner. It attracts a mixture of diners coming straight from work, visitors to the city and young couples. The main dining area is in the atrium upstairs and it's also possible to eat at the bar on the ground floor.... More

The title says it all. If I had a higher tolerance, I'd try the entire cocktail list but only had the avocado gimlet and meat hook. The list was very extensive with unusual ingredients, and each drink was conscientiously prepared. I only had the BBQ octopus appetizer, which was tender and well made but not that memorable. I would like... More

We love the cocktails - especially Smoke and Mirrors- and the food - everything we've ever had but my husband says their halibut is the best in the city. And the service is charming, never oppressive but always right there when needed. And if you sit in the Atruium it is quieter than the lively bar area.
