    We had brunch on Saturday with friends from Seattle. They were seated promptly and we joined them a few minutes later. Our waiter was enthusiastic and helpful. Our brunch was fabulous, each of us loved our meals. It was a bit noisy, however we were able to still enjoy our day. WE were not rushed from our table after we paid our bill, which was nice.

    We had a delicious dinner outside. Relaxed atmosphere. My hubby enjoyed the hearty mussel soup & salmon. I enjoyed the corn fritters with lentils & medley of vegetables. Dessert was a scrumptious rhubarb tart & blueberry chocolate mousse. Try the Gingeroo drink - lemon juice, bubbly water, ginger syrup - delicious. I could have had 3 more. Our server was lovely and warm. Fun to be outside mid-September. We love this restaurant & have been several times. (Must checkout the foodie gift shop)

    This is a great place to dine on Granville Island, and we enjoyed the outdoor patio especially. They were premiering a new menu, which was fun. Nice selection of beer and wine, and friendly waitstaff. Great locally sourced food and drink. Free parking for EVs beside restaurant also a plus, though Granville Island should expand the availability of charging sites for travellers.

    Very happy with this restaurant. Server was great and very accommodating to our needs. We all had the tuna salad, we shared the duck fries and also some soup to start. Everything was great and they paid close attention to our needs when taking our order and serving as we needed to get out in time for a fringe show at presentation house. Wine selection was pretty good too.

    My guests from Ohio loved the site and enjoyed the food, which was much different and of much higher quality than they usually have. They are not foodies - I needed to explain several menu items - but, in the end, they ordered and enjoyed mussels and frites, as well as the smoked grilled octopus. They were also impressed that the restaurant offered blankets after dark fell and the night turned a bit chilly.

    I took my three girls and family members in for lunch and had one of the most amazing dining experiences. Outstanding servers, free veggie plates for the kids as soon as they sat down to satisfy their hunger while the adults browsed the menus, crayons and colouring sheets - I was very impressed. The kids menu featured healthy items that my little ones devoured like a gluten free grilled cheese and fish and chips. I can't wait to return with the family again!

    Visited Edible Canada twice within a week and a half time span. The first time was on a Thursday early in the afternoon on a spur of the moment. The service was great as was the food. The duck poutine was a real hit and the bar produced a pretty great cocktail, even if I wasn't particularly partial to the ginger beer they use . The second time I went, based on my first experience, I reserved a table to enjoy a lunch out with my husband and daughter. We went on a Saturday at 1:30pm. The brunch rush was tapering off so we noticed our server this time wasn't as engaged until it slowed a bit. Problem was that food wasn't great this time. Duck poutine was only meh...same item, not as good and the rest only okay.

    Very disappointing for Dinner : "kale salad was "just kale", cauliflower soup was "oily", wine was unpleasant and expensive, french fries were good - luckily! Generally put me in a bad mood for the rest of the evening. BUT we have had delicious lunches there, so maybe just go back for lunch.

    we ate outside late august and it was delightful. I had written in the reservation that it was mine and my husband birthday- same day-.....Our server was smart, funny and easy going. We took our time over our meal,salmon and mussels. The menu changes according to the seasons and has locally sourced items, always fresh. Neil, manager, presented us with a birthday desert plate with digestif..... so kind. Edible treats all their guest with warmth whether you are visiting or a local, and that's very nice indeed. sylvianne and dave vancouver

    Great location in the middle of Granville Island but the good really missed the mark. Fish and chips came with good crisp fries but the batter was at times hard. I noticed that they brought a huge platter of pre-fried fish out during service so maybe the reheating process caused this. The ravioli was a bit bland but well presented. A little refinement and it could be a very nice dish. Moules et frites were good and fresh. They could do a better job representing local producers on the menu. Wine list has a good representation if good BC product. If they tweaked things a little, this could become a real gem but for now, it's location saves them. I would go if I am there but it's not a destination yet.

    Great menu, innovative dishes, excellent atmosphere, great drinks (maple bacon caesar). Only reason for less stars is that the service is a little off regarding drinks (consistently the drinks seem to take too long to make/deliver). Buy the bread basket, its extremely good. If you're up for the challenge, the duck poutine can't be beat (no bread needed in this case). If you like salt, ask for it. Dishes are a little under seasoned but that's ok because they'll bring you a variety of their house salts to add yourself. We'll be back here often, especially when guests are in town (which is when we make sure to head over to the market).

    I've wanted to go here for a while. I decided it would be a nice treat for my husband's birthday, and as it was a Tuesday it would probably be less busy and a better night to go with children. I wasn't wrong. We had a nice spot on the patio, the waiter was very friendly and attentive, and crayons for colouring for the kids. Adults and children's menus. We didn't wait long for the food, which was delicious! My steak was tender and had a lovely flavour, my husbands octopus was very tasty as well. The kids grilled cheese was made with brioche...so good! To top it off, an acoustic band provided entertainment with funky versions of popular music. We would definitely go here again and would recommend this place to friends.

    Dinner for two on the patio, a couple of drinks, a sunny evening, what more do you want? I ordered the salmon, it was grilled and a touch overcooked, served with a little bit of a anchovy and caper puree on top, accompanied by some potatoes cut in half, which were undercooked and a couple of artichoke hearts, no greens and that was disappointing. My partner had the mussels and thought they were excellent but there was not enough bouillon, accompanied by some fries cooked in duck fat, which were crunchy but a bit greasy! For dessert, we had the raspberry shortcake and that was a success, so creamy with a lot of fruit. Overall, it was an enjoyable, sunny evening and we hope they add some greens with their salmon! The service was excellent.

    A year ago Edible Canada was a delightful find: truly delicious food, well-priced, and served in a charming, lively ambience. Now, after our weekend lunch, I would never go again. The food is banal, poorly prepared, and over-fatty. It serves tourist fare, using low quality ingredients. But the restaurant is full because tourists don't know better. I noticed the place was thronged with overweight diners, who are attracted to such food, but it is not the sort of cuisine Vancouver celebrates or deserves.

    The bacon caesar not spectacular, as it sounds, The bacon was great, but for good caesars Rodney's Oyster Bar still rules. There are far better hamburgers in Vancouver - the burger itself of flavourless and the bun could easily be improved. Service was the worst I'd seen in years. Only go for the location - nothing more

    We have now tried several times Edible. It has his up and downs in regards quality. I wanted to give it another chance, but this time was the last one. We did not receive our starter ( they forgot), we ordered spiraling water, but didn't receive it. We continuously had to ask for our orders. The main course was again a disappointment. We ordered the steaks, but quality was poor and food was not even served hot. After giving this restaurant a couple of chances, we will never go again. I can't believe why people find this restaurant so good. It misses the passion and quality of food is poor.

    Edible Canada at the Market is one of my all time favourite places to come for a special meal. They always have several selections that I can chose from (I have celiac disease) and they really understand my medically necessary diet. I have introduced many people to this wonderful restaurant and will continue to do so. My meal, once again, was stellar.

    We had the duck poutine, mushroom Benny, fish cake Benny and the fish n chips. The bennies and the poutine were standout but I would pass on the fish n chips. The batter was weird and the fish was dry. I also thought the tartar sauce was overpowered with dill. The service was a little slow, we didn't get our meal until past 30 mins into service, but it was quite busy for Sunday brunch. Also a little more pricy for brunch but that is to be expected in Granville island.
