Very interesting meals; visually amazing and excellent taste. Spouse had roasted scallops and cauliflower; I had ribeye steak like I've never seen before; trimmed, stacked. Pumpkin Pie was cubes of pumpkin with pumpkin seeds. Reasonable wine by the glass prices for the type of restaurant. In Gastown.

We stumbled across this restaurant after being given a recommendation by Kit and Ace in Gastown and got an early reservation on a Friday night before flying out later that evening. The ambience, the service, the wine list and the food were all superb. The pasta entree was so light it could barely be called pasta and the main steak... More

We were searching online for a special place to go for cocktails and then dinner for our last night in Vancouver and stumbled across a magazine article extolling the virtues of L'Abbatoir, which also appeared to do both cocktails and dinner!. We called and booked a table and as soon as we walked in we were treated IMPECCABLY by every... More

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.
