When this restaurant opened I went and had Oysters Rockefeller and got very sick on a bad oyster. I still have not been won over.
The food is overpriced, the layout is pleasant but lacks the view of close by river restaurants.

YESssss....Personality meets you at the door, along with the aroma of local, well spiced and natural foods. Go with the "special" because the rest you can have every day if you go back! Noisy, if you are a group, let it rip, but tough if you're looking for a place to talk with your friend(s). One on one; AOK. Make sure Lauren knows it's your birthday, she will let you leave without dessert, but not without a candle. Been here 6+ times; food always fresh, presented nicely and tasty!

Lapellah is by far the best restaurant in Vancouver. When you walk in you see the open kitchen where you can sit at the kitchen counter and watch them prepare all sorts of delicious foods. Happy hour starts at 3:30-6 and you should always try to be there by 4:00 as it fills up fast. The happy hour menu is great. You can have anything from a burger (the best you will ever have) to meat and potato's. The list goes on! The regular menu is fantastic as well:) Best martini's in town. Try the Avalanche while you are there..... you will not be disappointed I could go on and on about how great this place is but you will have to see it for yourself!

From the moment you walk into Lapellah, you are greeted warmly by the hostess(es) and are taken by the nice aromas from the wood stove and food.

We often go to Happy Hour at Lapellah because you can easily make a dinner out of the many offerings, so it is affordable and delicious. Our favorite is the bbq'd shirmp and pork tacos. They also have delicious mac and cheese. In fact, I think we've just about sampled everything on the Happy Hour menu and have never been disappointed.

We have, of course, eaten lunch and dinner at the restaurant too (not to mention dessert). On Sunday they offer a "Sunday Dinner", which is different every week. Our one disappointment is that they took the "Chocolate Bombe" off the dessert menu :(. That was, by far, the best dessert we've ever had. Hope they bring it back.

Happy Hour is every day from 3:30 to 6:00 PM. Don't be surprised if it's crowded! The wait is usually short.

The food was great, the menu selection slightly limited & a little on the spendy side. However the atmosphere & the service was very good.
