Forage was a really fine place to "come home to" while staying at the Listel Hotel. After a day of sightseeing and walking around the city, it was a real oasis in terms of atmosphere and food. Many hotel guests had breakfast here-which looked pretty fine. We saved our "foraging" for the lovely dinners-perfect after wine tastings around the corner... More

Met an old friend for breakfast here today. First visit for both of us. We arrived at 9 to beat the crowd and it was already busy, always a good sign! (I would recommend a reservation if you want to brunch). Menu isn't huge but everything coming out of the kitchen looked good. Had brioche French toast, not a huge... More

The food was excellent, all locally sourced. The service was stupendous and knowledgeable. Unlike other restaurants of this caliber, the atmosphere was very casual, unpretentious and friendly.

Came with my husband and 2.5 year old. Fast, prompt service and delicious food. Get there before 9 am and you likely won't have to wait.

I stumbled upon Forage as it was very close to my B&B in the West End of Vancouver. It was snowing and slushy and cold so I did not want to travel far. What a great happenstance! Forage was taking part of Dine Out Vancouver so had prepared a Menu Fixeé. For $30 you received a starter, a main and... More

Went to Forage for the Dine Out Vancouver menu. Though the 1 entree I chose had a $12 surcharge (short ribs). Only 1 slight issue was immediately and quickly rectified (served a soup rather luke warm). Everything else was delicious. The kale salad was excellent. Not your normal kale...this was actually GOOD! :) Bison short ribs were very moist and... More

I chose Forage for a Saturday morning business breakfast meeting, hoping to have an upbeat, positive atmosphere for our conversation. Reservations were needed as Forage is very popular and when I arrived it was almost full. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us without a reservation and we got a great seat (thank you!) The atmosphere was... More

Description
Chef Whittaker’s vision features dishes that are unpretentious and innovatively prepared using products sourced from local and organic farmers, fishers and producers whenever possible. These combine for a menu featuring snacks such as “crackling & popcorn”; a variety of creative “boards” and “irons” to share; tasty “plates” to nosh on together or enjoy solo as a main; and desserts for a sweet (and a bit savoury) finish.
