Great ambiance

We walked in on a cold chilly December evening hoping for something filling and delicious to eat. We appreciated that they let our large group of 20 in without a reservation. The restaurant is warm and inviting. The ambiance is great, too. It has a young, hipster-like feel to it. The menu is... read more

They are totally overpriced for what you get. My partner and our girlfriend ordered the waffle with chicken. When it arrived it came as 1/2 a waffle each and we thought they must have ran out of waffle mix so they just cut it in half...I still paid for 2 full meals at a price way over average for them....

Great patio right in the middle of Gastown. Food is good if you order the right item. Nightlife is hoping and often have live music.

We had a business drinks meeting and Chill Winston was suggested to us. This is a great spot. The service was great and we had a long day so we decided to have a late meal. I had the Fried Chicken and was surprised at how good it was. I had a beer as well and it tasted like beer... More

Over the years, certain parts of Vancouver's dinning and cocktail scene have become more popular. There is no doubt in my mind that the evolution of Gastown and it's popularity come's via the very popular anchor tenant, Chill Winston. I visit Chill Winston on my monthly visits to Vancouver and have never been disappointed. They provide a unique food menu... More

We ate here on the evening of our arrival. and where happy with this nice location and chill atmosphere in Gastown. Service was a bit slow, like all places in Canada wich are overstaffed.

Trendy patio. Terrible waiters and waitresses. They don't know a thing. Stick with beer and avoid the wines, they are overpriced and served at the wrong temperature.

Super friendly staff on a rainy Vancouver Thursday night. We opted for a mix of smaller plates to share, the rabbit terrine was great with the house pickles. The mint and parsley cake was the highlight of the meal!! Amazing!

I was traveling solo and didn't get the best service. Took a long time to flag down a server. I ordered fish tacos (which were pretty good) and a diet soda. My food came before my drink. I had no utensils. They never checked back in with me to see if I needed anything. I wasn't drinking alcohol and I... More
