Came here with a good friend for dinner. Food was pretty good and the prices reasonable but the staff (one lady) was a little on the buzzing side. It almost seemed that we should leave as soon as possible after we finished eating.

Thank NDeee

The service was poor, they forgot the main main dish.
All the food needed salt, and usually there is no need for me.
Nothing spectacular, first and last.

We were klooking for a place to eat at 10:30pm on a Saturday night after a show. La Brasserie was open until 11:30 and they welcomed us warmly. It was our third visit ib the past few years. They had the perfect midnight snacks - steamed mussels (divine) and a burger prepared with a layer of scrumptious, delicate onion rings and a to-die-for brioche type bun. Both dishes came with unique, delicious house-made mayo and ketchup. The service was friendly and gracious. The people-watching on the Davie Village strip was just getting warmed up. Can't wait to go back. They have a nice selction of beers but our only suggestion would be to have some economical wine choices. The cheapest on the menu were $40.00/bottle - $9.00 a glass. I know that's kind of par for urban Vancouver but I wish more restaurants would adopy theEuropean tradition of having an affordable, drinkable vino de casa.

The menu is not large here, but we found plenty to like: good steak frites and moules, delicious brined chicken (although I liked the kale and wild mushroom saute under it almost as much as the chicken). They do simple things extremely well, like wonderful butter lettuce salad and French onion soup. The wine and beer selection was good and reasonably priced. The wait staff was informed, professional, and pleasant without being familiar. Lots of good people -watching on Davies Street. The only drawback is that they are small and don't take reservations, but the tables turn over fairly quickly. The meal is definitely worth the wait (or a seat at the bar).

Was very impressed by this little place. Oysters were perfect - plump and smooth and cool, and because the little dishes of horseradish and of vinaigrette were to the side, the chef was clearly allowing you control of the flavours. Good steak. Beer battered halibut cheeks were to die for: crisp, moist, tender, and a super portion size- could nt finish my fries! The accompanying fennel and kale salad was inventive and I wanted more of this ( to less fries maybe)
Now desserts- slightly off the mark for me. I know it's a matter of choice, but a creme brûlée in my opinion should be chilled and silken your throat. There was a hefty amount of crunch from the thick caramel layer, but the custard was warm and slightly lumpy. Chocolate mousse was also not up to much- but still worth it. We had to sit at the bar for a bit before a table came free and those cooks worked really hard. Service was slightly slow, but I like that- we've got too used to fast food. This was one of our more expensive meals but a reasonable price for what we got.
