I was visiting my son in Vancouver and we were looking to find a place for dinner. I'm not into the big, noisy chain type places or the over-the-top prices charged by many fine dining restaurants. My son had been to Grub a few years ago and recommended we try it. He couldn't have chosen a better place. There is... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the years and are interested to return as they vary their menu quite a bit. The food is always tasty, plentiful,and the offerings are interesting. Nice staff, friendly and helpful.

We haven't been in this little restaurant for a few years so thought we'd give it a try. Not my thing! It is small. Quite narrow with seating along one side and a bar along half the other side. It is very packed with seats quite close together. It is hard to talk or hear what the person opposite is... More

I've eaten there once before and lucky for me they had their home-made tagliatelle on special again. reasonable price, delicious and unpretentious food! I could see it being squishy in there when they... More

My husband and I had originally planned on eating at Meet on Main, but by the time we arrived there was a fairy long line and it was really cold outside so we decided to try out Grub a couple doors down. We had eaten several years ago at Grub in the summer and quite enjoyed the court yard seating... More

What great appetizers and main courses! Very impressed with the soups and the cannelloni! So good! The wine was ok, Paris cocktail was ok, the lighter beer was good and the dessert was ok. Cute ambiance, great wallpaper.

I guess the fact that this place is so busy is due to the fact, although pricey, you do get value and quality. I had the ling cod, I don't get out much but I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a meal so much. Places like this would lose there charm if they were big rooms, I got... More

They recently re-opened after a long closure do to fire. Everything has improved from the menu to the decor. The addition of local craft beer is also a plus. The only downside is that the service tends to be a tad slow. Otherwise good food and an intimate setting is recipe for a positive recommendation. Tip: They are closed Tuesdays... More

I had lunch with two friends and we all enjoyed our meals, so much so that we plan to return soon. The service was excellent. I had the Salade Nicoise, ( with a twist, not traditional with tuna ) but with Alaska Cod and served with a fried egg on top. Delicious. My friends had the Squash Cutlet and Warm... More

I'm vegetarian, and their two choices were awesome. Their fish and lamb were very very good (according to the savages with whom I dined). We had a salad with smoky mushrooms and kale. Fan bloody tastic! Service was friendly and helpful. The wine list was great with some really interesting cocktails. We ate at their patio in rear. Very intimate... More

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
