“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

I've been a few times and had different experiences, I once felt as if it was presumptuous and over rated but the next time was quite the opposite, definitely recommend as far as bang for your buck.

“Off the beaten path”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

I met my girlfriend here and it was a great find. Tableau typically serves a busy lunch crowd but we dined during the week and were lucky enough to have a table outside. The food was delicious. I had the French onion soup and a mozzarella/basil flatbread. My friend enjoyed her steak frites. But, we splurged and shared 2 of their desserts, which I again would strongly recommend (their banana ice cream sundae and the chocolate pavlova). Given the great number of restaurants that Vancouver has, it's hard for me to go back to one unless it's really worth it. This is one of those places.

“Wonderful casual bistro in the heart of Vancouver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

My family and I just had a wonderful meal at the Tableau Bar Bistro in Vancouver. Connected to the terrific Loden Hotel, the room was casual and the food was fantastic. Service was congenial and attentive without being overbearing. We shared the Mushrooms on Toast; Butter soaked toasted Brioche covered in sautéed mixed mushrooms and a perfect demi glace based sauce. This one is very rich and best for sharing, but such a treat. Other standout dishes were the Pork Tenderloin and the Lobster Bisque (which was a special on the evening we went). Special note of thanks to the chef for happily simplifying the Seared Halibut to suit my 9 year old son's tastes. Perfectly cooked Seared Halibut in a lemon butter sauce that they served with a side of fresh pasta in rose sauce with vegetables. Halibut was so fresh and perfectly cooked and the simple pasta so good, I will likely try pasta the next time I go to Tableau. The room was of moderate size and a little loud but the both tables along the side of the rear wall looked cozy and quieter. Please note that my rating for families with children does not equate to crayons at the table but rather appreciates a kitchen who knows how to cook for a well seasoned (and behaved) traveling child.

Made reservations for a Friday night and the place was hopping. Interesting menu and special options. Had an attentive and professional server. Food was top notch.
