I have eaten at Le Vol Au Vent many times and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh and delicious and is served piping hot on plates that have been warmed. The menu is seasonal, especially themushrooms they serve like chanterelles, and morels...absolutely delicious served as an appetizer in what else- a vol au vent! On my last visit I had an absolutely incredible seafood salad. The salad was a wonderful marriage of crisp cold greens dressed in a light vinaigrette, topped with a melange of seafood, quickly pan fried in olive oil and sprinkled with toasted fennel seeds. The seafood consisted of scallops, mussels, prawns and clams, all in the shell, as well as a small fillet of cod, and one of salmon. There were also calamari. The salad was garnished simply with some fresh lemon, and with a glass of crisp sauvignon blanc...it was an incredible feast! The salad was an astoundingly low $14.95, and came with slices of fresh baguette and butter. It was one of the best meals I have ever eaten... Just a note, as the owner and his wife take an annual vacation every year, the restaurant is closed from Feb 15th, to the end of March. But not to worry...Spring is coming, and in April, so will Le Vol Au Vent. In my opinion... Le Vol Au Vent is the best restaurant in the lower mainland.
