From start to finish. The service. The bartender. The ambiance. Then we got our food. Started with the skirt steak appy and thin fries. OMG that's all I needed lol. Then we had the short rib and pork special. One of the best meals I've ever had. Please do yourselves a favor and eat here

I love The Flying Pig and never miss an opportunity to dine here. The food is excellent. The fish, the steak with fries, the brussel sprouts and chocolate cake are my favorites! The service is efficient and can be very friendly when they are not too busy.

The Flying Pig was packed on a Wednesday night when most other restaurants were only part full. Luckily we had the last free table. The food was lovely and the atmosphere was buzzing. I'd recommend the fish especially.

We had a great lunch at the Flying Pig. The food and service were great. The food was from local and sustainable ingredients, which we try to eat as much as possible. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed.

The flying pig has a great drink selection (beer and wine) and delicious food (especially the seafood). The staff were very friendly and informative about the menu. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Vancouver!!

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 experience was great! Everything we had was on large... 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!
