I can't wait to go back here and would love to take their cooking classes. For the starter I had Moules Frites Coquotte (Mussels, white wine cream, smoked bacon lardons, spring onions) and braised lamb for the main dish. Fantastic food and atmosphere

My brother made reservations for five of us as our "treat restaurant" when my sister, mother and I were visiting Vancouver last month. We arrived at 7 p.m., which was our stated reservation time, and were seated right away, although right behind the hostess station, which I at first didn't love. I didn't want everyone who walked in to be... More

Loved the creativity of the chef. Really well conceived, prepared and presented dishes. Really noisy. Sub par washrooms.

Great service, great food and wonderful beer and wine make for a great eating and drinking experience. Atmosphere buzzing adds to the experience. Some of the best food I have ever eaten expertly advised by the knowledgeable staff. A wonderful place to enjoy an evening out.

We visit this restaurant everytime we pass through Vancouver. Food menu is great with the Halibut and Mussels topping my list. Cocktails are excellent but what brings here is the selection of Belgium Beer. We have been lucky because its hard to get in here with no reservation. We always end up around the bar and we watch how great... More

Fabulous mussels. Consider booking a cooking class next door at Dirty Apron and they'll teach you how to make them!

A- is for ambience, atmosphere, the best vibe in town....B- is for the incredible selection of Beers and Ale or just plain beverage, my fav is the blue cheese Martini and C- well that is for Chow, yum, yum, yum. My favorite place to sit is at the Bar but get there early if you don't have res.

I agree with the other reviewers who write that the food is great, the service is good, but the place is very noisy. The lamb dish served with spices in a clay pot is simply mouth watering. We ordered several items and then shared them, which is a good way to get a taste of everything. The server was very... More

Another fantastic restaurant in my city! Every meal I have had here has been fantastic! The onlly negative is on Friday and Saturday nights I find the music too loud and would prefer it to be a bit more subtle so I can hear the guests at my table.
