Great lunch experience

My husband and I had a really good lunch at Rodneys. Our waiter Axel explained the differing oyster flavours and experiences and gave us an excellent combination well as a wine accompaniment. Lively service and good food. Will return before we leave our vacation in BC.

This is our second experience at Rodney's... the first was for a friends birthday dinner, but sadly we arrived very late and were not able to eat. This is experience was just the two of us for Oysters, some beers, and a couple of caesars. The table was excellent, clean and well placed with a great view overlooking the rest... More

This place is high energy so don't expect a quiet romantic dinner here. Weekend tend to have long line and they don't take reservation, so be sure to get there early. They have an extensive beer menu. The oysters are by far the best I've ever had. We didn't order much of other food except clam chowder and that wasn't... More

Been here before, this time was better as the waiter was a nice guy. The food is always good, just depends on which waiter you get.

This is the spot in Yale Town to go if you like great staff, always a good variety of oysters an other sea foods. Limited selection of wines and spirits but the choices are good. This would be my always go to place if I am in Vancouver.

I visited Rodney's with colleagues while on business in Vancouver. The restaurant was packed and noisy so definitely not a place for a quite meal. We had an great waiter who was accommodating and friendly. We shared some oysters which was the highlight of the meal (as it should be at this restaurant). The main course was really the disappointment.... More

Fun evening out with a friend... the server was slightly helpful. My friend is not a HUGE seafood fan, but was open to suggestions of something not too fishy. He basically laughed at her, which I can kind of understand considering it is a seafood restaurant, but I had dragged her there! I order some fresh shucked oysters and he... More

Came early for lunch, great table for 2 upstairs, super friendly and helpful server. My wife had the Pan Fried Oysters, I had the Oysters Rockefeller, and shared a bottle of Pinot Blanc. What a treat, prepared to perfection, compared to another recent restaurant visit that must be embarrassed in comparison. At Rodney's, we had fresh oysters - you can... More
