Craving a tasty Soupe a l’oignon, we made reservations at The French Table. Interestingly enough they wanted to ensure we were finished by the next sitting (7:15pm) but the place was no busy for a Saturday evening. Overall the food had nice flavors (soup was...More

Our host had too much traditional French bistro in his heart. The service was indifferent and it took away from the experience. The food was very good. Maybe worth a try when other places are too busy.

This is more than a good restaurant, but a perfect blend of local and international cuisine. The prices are very reasonable and the service is espetacular...and you must try the omelet! It is one of those places you have to go back.

Welcome to The French TableFormer Master Executive Chef Herve Martin is proud to present his newest eating establishment, The French Table. Nestled cosily in the Riley Park area on Main St & 23rd Ave, it’s a far away from the former Hermitage restaurant, which was a downtown staple on Robson Street for 24 years until last year. After the developer announced new plans, Herve patiently and rightfully re-located to an area that’s ripe for a surburban French cuisine in this up and coming, bustling area. The French Table still carries the tradition of its former self, especially with the outstanding first class servers, whom he successfully carried over but also has a modern flair. Clean lines, open room, first comes into mind when first stepping inside. Unlike the traditional white table cloths, Herve cleverly designed its logo under the glass tables bearing The French table signature, a very nice touch. Tables line the walls for best view of everything. You can select from a menu created by Master Chef Herve Martin and served in the traditional French style. The critically acclaimed wine list boasts one of the best selections of Burgundy wines in Vancouver and is highlighted with exclusive wines from the family winery in Chamilly, France.
