Cozy, friendly, and casual atmosphere. It gets really busy for brunch so be ready to wait 20-30 minutes. No reservations. Hash browns are amazing.

We have lived in Vancouver for almost 4 years and for some (ridiculously stupid) reason we've never been until now. Our brunch was off the charts - we probably would have licked the plates if we could have. We had the steak & eggs and the asparagus omelet with brussel sprouts. Love the focus on sustainable eggs, seafood and meat.... More

There is a reason this place is so busy. The food is amazing. Make a reservation and don't be disappointed. Beef tartar is my favorite - try it even if you never have before! Warm kale salad? There is no shame in ordering two :)

We have been to the Oakwood for brunch several times and the food is always tasty. They change their brunch menu every so often, which isn't the greatest if you become accustomed to a favourite dish that is no longer on the menu. Regardless, the food was tasty and portions are a good size; although the steak and eggs portion... More

Wonderfully prepared dishes to satisfy your appetite. Loved the concept of choosing different dishes to share.

Our group of four enjoyed an excellent late dinner at The Oakwood. The staff were very welcoming and our server Jasmine was friendly yet professional. We decided to share three main dishes and a couple of sides. This was a great way to enjoy more than one dish! The warm kale salad with lemon and parmesan vinaigrette was very tasty.... More

We went there for our Valentines dinner, for a set menu with an amazing wine pairing. Not only was it an incredible set menu, but the knowledge of our servers was awesome as was their attitude. The wine pairings were so on point. Will be making many reservations here in the future!

This was our 2nd time @ The Oakwood and this time we came for brunch. One of the best brunches I've ever had. I'm a vegetarian who prefers savoury and I don't eat eggs. Their only veggie option features an asparagus omelette and I asked them to sub homefries and raw tomatoes instead. This was not a problem and they... More

The Oakwood is amazing. We've been a couple of times and every dish we've tried is tasty. The best might be the poutine which is definitely the best in town. Make sure you book a table or you might be waiting for a while.
