This award winning chef and his wife made us feel at home in their incredible restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere that was soft and intimate. The food was second to none and the staff were superb. To round off the incredible food, they offered a fabulous selection of wines. We stayed several hours and were never rushed. The whole evening was superb and left us talking about it all the way home. If you would like to enjoy an incredible culinary experience don't miss this restaurant. 5 out of 5!

Excellent presentation & flavor of all menu items. Extensive wine list. Attentive, knowledgeable service. A definite must for a special night out.

For a very hyped restaurant, I was underwhelmed. The food presentation was very good (to be expected) and the tastes were orchestrated but didn't amaze me like a good French cuisine meal should.

Most notable was the style of service - some customers were treated very "directly" and were made noticably uncomfortable (even if the intention was good - it's the style of the owners perhaps.) I was also told about a complaint on a return dish that was dismissed as "that's the way it is supposed to taste."

The wine knowledge offered was not very detailed, and I got a bit of a surprise which worked against the food ordered - my expectation would have been a warning. It was also a bit young - check the dates.

I'd return again if about 20% cheaper - I don't consider that the price measures against the dining experience.

Amazing food and one of the best kept secrets for dining in the Greater Vancouver area. Have been there a few times before but felt compelled to share this special place after one particularly memorable meal. A relatively short a la carte menu reflects the focus on fresh and local. But its the Table D'Hote that is the star here.

We dined on a multi-course meal centred around duck in a variety of forms. The presentation was great but the flavours were unbelievable - intense, but really refined. And everything worked together perfectly, no false notes here . The restaurant is very small and has a loyal following - reservations are a must. A few folks have commented about slow service. I would disagree - this is fine dining and if you are the type who wants to gulp down rich food, you might be best to dine elsewhere. During your meal, if you have a chance to speak with Scott the Chef, you'll find him absolutely passionate about his food and very down to earth.
