Excellent family-style dining, terrific food and service

We visited this busy and energetic restaurant in Gastown with a large group - had the private dining area "in" the kitchen, and had a pre-arranged meal that was essentially a tasting menu. I didn't see their regular menu, though I will definitely return for a 'regular' meal someday - our... read more

They have done a great job setting up this restaurant. Great location in the heart of Gastown, with interesting street views from the great balcony. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. A great wine list with many glass options. The food was varied and interesting. I chose 2 sides. Others chose 2 appy's. This is a great restaurant for a... More

This place had a great atmosphere and food. However, if you are looking for a place to have a quiet chat, this isn't it. When I was there it was very loud, which I didn't mind. I had salmon as a starter and steak as the main. They did both very well!

I was here twice in a week! Once with my husband and the other with my girlfriend. The food was delicious and flavourful and the service both times were outstanding. Expect a long wait if you're going there on a Friday or Saturday night, but it well worth it!

We had a wonderful meal starting with their delicious Brussels sprouts then we had the veal and trout entrees. Both very well prepared with fresh ingredients and great flavours. Busy place but we're able to get in at 6pm without a reservation

Ate here with friends on a Wednesday night recently while in Vancouver for a Canucks game getaway. As it's a short walk from our hotel in Yaletown, and the reviews seemed pretty positive, we thought we'd give it a try. We were SO lucky to get a table right away as this place was crazy busy for 6:00 on a... More

Obviously a popular spot with the after-work crowd. At 5:00, the bar side was already crowded and the restaurant side filling quickly. We could see why. A nice spot in trendy Yaletown to meet friends for a drink, but also a place with excellent food! We were very impressed. Everything was delicious. We had ordered different fish dishes -- the...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting this restaurant after finding it on Trip Advisor and it was so great, not to mention it was packed on a Thursday night! Highly recommend a reservation, but we enjoyed some cocktails while waiting for out table without one. There were was a variety of entrees, we loved being able to put together... More

The Flying Pig had excellent food and the staff was very friendly. We had an excellent dinner by sharing four different appetizers and entrees.
