We were a party of 8 -- all cyclists looking quality food in advance of the Gran Fondo to Whistler the next morning. They welcomed the table with an assortment of appetizers on the house -- which were tasty a nd good start. Folks had the halibut, or pasta or pizza -- all of which was really tasty and appropriate...

Tucked away in the quiet streets behind denman this is well worth a visit. Authentic italian food with a few surprises like the chick pea 'bread' (more like a polenta) and the basil sorbet. Braised beef was melt in the mouth stuff. Highly recommended.

We had a fabulous meal on the patio of this amazing bistro. The atmosphere was delightful, the waiter was very knowledgeable, the menu selections varied and the wine list commendable. We had looked forward to eating here for a long time but waited to share the experience with good friends. No one was disappointed.

If you've ever had a waiter come to your table while you are finishing your entree and ask in a perfunctory manner if everything is okay, then you'll know what dining at Adesso is like. There's really nothing wrong about Adesso except that it is tired, or at least it felt that way on the Thursday night we visited. Or... More

Found this on Trip Advisor. We were staying in the West End and the restaurant was a pleasant walk down tree lined streets from our hotel. Be sure and have the address with you because it is easy to miss mixed in with the residential neighborhood. The food was very good and our waiter was pleasant and attentive. We did... More

Was disappointed that we couldn't get a table in the patio and we were told it's totally booked until 9 pm so we decided to eat inside which was nice and intimate Food was average and my... More

I booked a work dinner at Adesso and was quite happy with the experience. It's in a residential neighborhood, which was unexpected but charming. The outdoor patio was really nice but the interior looks intimate as well. Everyone in the party enjoyed the food and drink and I will be back again.

This restaurant in the residential part of Vancouver's West End has great patio dining. If eating outside during summer days, be sure to have your sunglasses ready. Even with overhead protection, its still very bright. The service was cordial. We were a group of seven and three meals arrived long after the first four did. The brunch menu had a... More

The ambiance was quite, low key and very friendly. It was a little to cozy with little elbow room on the patio. The food and service was excellent
