Wonderful service. The food was impeccable. Great wine list. Has a reserve list as well. Limited gluten free choices but ones that were available were delicious. Nice ambience

L'Abbatoire is a must go while in Vancouver. The service, decor and food were all top notch. I was greeted and seated right away (I did have a reservation.) The menu is full of items that sounded delicious. I had a hard time choosing what to order. I chose two appetizers, one special which was beautifully presented smoked salmon with... More

The restaurant is on two levels and we were seated upstairs, which we discovered is much nicer, it's a better layout, so ask for a table here. The menu is very small, a handful of starters and mains. However the food is excellent and everything is beautifully presented. We ordered halibut which was tasty and moist and pork belly that... More

Had to try Foie Gras now that it is illegal in my home state. Very good and now I'm hooked. Will be my new travel dish. They served theirs with cherries, yogurt, and a white wine jello garnish. Loved them all. Melts in your mouth with a very rich and salty flavor. Fantastic!

The problem with L'Abbatoir is that we like their Steak Diane so much we rarely make it through the menu. Excellent wines also. They did upset us a bit when they took their awesomest Somosas off the menu. This = (maximum creativity) x (great quality) x (impeccable service). Soon opening for lunch and brunch.

We enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and walking in the neighborhood. It is an active place with a nice crowd.

The name of this restaurant is "The Slaughterhouse", in French, of course. Great offerings, many classic french, but that push the envelope a bit in the way they are served. Perhaps the closest thing to a foodie restaurant that we found during our stay in Vancouver. Note, for a party of two, you will most likely be seated at a... More

This restaurant serves some of the most well prepared regional cooking I have had anywhere! I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for inventively prepared regional cooking!

This is a very chic restaurant. Absolutely gorgeous interior. Very smartly dressed staff with a genuine professional attitude. It was a pleasure to be hosted by Roland. The food was extremely delicious and excellently plated. I would venture back to this establishment in a heartbeat. A flawless service and an exceptional dinner. Thank you very much. Robert
