The food and service are both impeccable here. I have been here about 30 times and it is consistently good. Nice patio. Classic French cuisine. Presented nicely and cooked perfectly. The service is attentive and friendly. Great room.

I dint often give 5 stars to anywhere but this place is good. Firstly we hadn't made a reservation, however the attitude of the management was 'how can we accommodate you' rather than a negative. I had the French onion soup,followed by a delicious piece...More

I took professional guests for dinner. All enjoyed their meals and we shared a lovely bottle of wine. The peppercorn sauce on the rib eye was stellar. The service was friendly but not obtrusive.

A friend suggested this place for dinner. It's located in a lovely spot of Gastown. I was seated at a table by the window and, while waiting for my friend, I enjoyed looking at the old-school architecture around. The food was good but not exceptional....More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of

Funny that you mention that, we had reservation for my friends brithday at 8.30. We arrived early, and at 9.15 we still did not have our table set up. The manager Mikel, did not even apologize once. Instead he yelled at us for wondering how long it would be, and asked us if we wanted to ask the guests to get up and leave.

We have read that the manager can be a bit rude. I have been to restaurant on several occasions and have always had a good experience.
