Adesso was disappointing to say the least. Firstly, the odd smell upon entering (like cat litter) was an immediate turn off, and the food was mediocre (salmon ravioli was very salty). The only plus was the service, which was attentive and friendly. Would I revisit?...More

The Adesso is located on a quiet residential street with no other commercial establishments. Do not let this deter you. The food was terrific as was the service and reasonably priced. Very laid back, excellent food, highly recommend!

We were lucky to get a nice table at the outdoor courtyard as the place was quite busy. The food was very good but a little expensive. The service very friendly but slow, probablly they were short on staff. Worth to try again.

Went for a stroll and happened on Adesso Restaurant. Nestled on a quiet, tree lined street, the patio calls to you. This place reminds me of New York, a bistro among old apartments. Interesting drink specials, and a appealing menu. We shared dishes Meat and...More

We stayed next door at the Buchan hotel and since we arrived quite late our first night in Vancouver and needed something closeby, we just went Adesso for convenience. We were pleasantly surprised, however, because the food was truly great! I had the cauliflower risotto...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along

Yes. The servers (we've always had Gavin) are very attentive to little ones, and we always ordered a small custom pasta with broccolini, parmesan and butter - children are welcome.
