Make an evening of it and enjoy, if you're rushed this may not be your best choice.

We had reservations and were seated promptly upon arrival, the owner was most friendly and helpful in spite of working hard to be attentive to the full house of guests that evening. We soon picked up on the relaxed pace of the establishment, the other patrons seemed to have been past guests as no... read more

Maybe the service is slow sometimes but it is well worth a wait. If you like French cuisine ,this is the place to visit. We had an onion soup, morel mushrooms, fish soup ( bouillabaisse) and filet mignon with cognac sauce, outstanding!

It had been a while since we had eaten at Vol au Vent, and in fairness the food is always good.However, it is the service wait that is the problem. We decided to go on Saturday night around 7. We hadn't made a reservation, and the place was fairly busy, but there were still tables available. The only person who... More

Went there for lunch and didn't like it at all. If not for the marine drive location I can't think of this place getting much business. Had the fish and chips which was drowned in oil. They didn't have the Halibut.

A landmark on the White Rock waterfront, Vol au Vent serves authentic French dishes with attention to fresh local ingredients. The casual atmosphere and ocean view patio are host by a pleasant and knowledgable husband and wife team. We started our anniversary dinner with three appetizers. A chanterelle cream with baguette that was wonderfully rich and calorie free ;) We... More

A small hole in the wall operated by husband/wife team that brings a taste of France to the beach town. My husband had The French onion soup, the best I have had, filled with onions and flavor. I had a chanterelles vol Au vent. I actually had a hard time making up my mind. I wished I had saved room... More

The Chef and the hostess are very knowledge for their food and they make you feel relaxed. We have had a couple meals there for almost 2 years. Love the food, love the air, love the guests there too. It's a family style no fancy place. And the food is very delicious to us. Be cautious about the timing -... More

My favorite lunch spot. Seafood salads, Croque Monsieur or Madame, crepes, vol au vents, and many other items but you get the idea: and nearly everything comes with a good helping of Michel's incredibly thin and irresistable little French fries. Michel is the owner/chef, and a one-man operation in the kitchen. His wife is the sole waitress and front of... More
