This was a pre-arranged family gathering to celebrate my Dad's 92nd birthday and our niece's 12th birthday. So, 11 of us with reservations for 12.30 pm to enjoy a birthday brunch and a cake which my brother kindly picked up at his favourite bakery. We were all on time and seated by 12:30, ordered our drinks and followed with our... More

The Tapenade Bistro is located on Bayview Street directly across the street from Steveston Landing. I ordered French onion soup, strip loin and strawberry short cake. The service was prompt and my dinner selections flavourful. The prices are more modest than that of the restaurants in Steveston Landing. If arriving in Steveston Village during the summer months and especially on... More

I hadn't been to Tapenade for awhile when I was invited to join in a birthday celebration for a special friend arranged by the family. The choice of Tapenade could not have been better, the setting, the service, the food and the attention to detail made the evening memorable. Thank you.

We had an anniversary dinner last night at Tapenade Bistro in Steveston and we were delighted with both the meals and the service given to us by our knowledgeable and personal server, Kelsey. We shared an appetizer and had separate main courses, a bacon wrapped cornish game hen and I had a lamb sirloin with sweet breads. Both dinners were... More

This is our first time at Tapenade as it was offered on Groupon; pay $30 for $60. We went on a Wed evening at 5pm and by the time we left at 7:30pm there was only 4 or 5 tables. I noticed that they had a Wed prix fixe dinner 3 course for $33 so I thought perhaps we can... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Richmond. My family has been here countless times and we have tried most of the items on the menu. Both their meat and seafood options are executed well. My favourite would be the bouillabaisse - the broth is so aromatic and you get a generous sampling of seafood ranging from salmon, to... More

So, some high school friends of 50 years met at this wonderful little restaurant. I had not had a frittata in years so decided to give it a try. Oh my, it was so delicious. My friends had the mushroom crepes and bouillabaisse. All were worth the trip to Steveston. I highly recommend it and I must mention that the... More

On a recent trip to Steveston, we stopped for lunch at the Tapenade Bistro. I ordered the roasted vegetable soup with basil pesto. OMG! This was one of the best soups I've ever eaten! It was so good I wanted the recipe! Delicious! My husband ordered the shrimp sandwich with fries and loved it. Slightly toasted bread loaded with shrimp,... More

This was our first time to the Tapenade Bistro, we arrived at around 6 pm on a Saturday night, late September, and were greeted at the door right away and taken to a window seat. The waitress was there very quick and in no time we were enjoying a bottle of wine.. the selection on the menu was small but... More

We visited this restaurant while on holiday in Steveston. We visited at weekend when the restaurants on the dockside were rammed, and this had lots of room. That may have been a bad omen but not so. The food was largely seafood based, hardly surprising given the location near the dock, and was cooked, presented and tasted great. 6 of... More
