I had the salad nicoise and the tuna was delicious but it was mostly greens and not much for other accoutrements. The $5 mimosa tasted like cheap champagne with cheap OJ, glad it wasn't more than five bucks. My husband, however loved his Croque Monsieur. The service was very friendly and attentive.

It is my go to for special dinners like birthday, anniversary or if I want to treat friends or family to good food. The service has always been on point every time I've come and I don't know if it's a requirement... More

I came here with three colleagues for lunch. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was excellent. There is a good mix of traditional lunch options and healthy items to choose from. I went with the lunch bowl which was a mix of greens, beans, quinoa and other healthy items. Menu items are priced a few dollars higher than... More

Had a cosy, casual meal here with friends last month. The decor is well done - has a feeling of a New York joint come French bistro. Good selection of places to sit - either at the bar, at high bench tables or regular restaurant seating. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The bartenders knew their stuff and made a... More

I had gone to this restaurant years agao and enjoyed it. This time, I was even more surprised as I had an even better experience than before! The servers were attentive and professional. All of the dishes were well presented and tasty. As this was a higher end restaurant, I was expecting to go home hungry. I was wrong! I... More

I stayed at the hotel that is connected to this restaurant, at the end of a long day we often contemplated the easy option of going downstairs and eating at Tableau. After the first time we didn't make that mistake again. The bar is tiny and the seats are uncomfortable. The best thing about a hotel bar is that you... More

A local friends recommended for casual dinner and we were not disappointed. Easy street parking. Very attentive and prompt service. Food presented attractively and tasted great. French cousine. Noise level (music + other patrons) appropriate and allowed for undisturbed conversations. Price: appetizer, main course + 2 drinks, tip = $60/person. We are going to pass the recommendations onto anyone who... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
