My five girlfriends and I went here for brunch last year and were fortunate enough to get a table by the window overlooking the view to Vancouver. It wasn't a sunny day but ithe city was still a sight to behold. We had the usual brunch items and everything was prepared and served beautifully. The waiter was so great and helped make our little get together even better. All in all, a great place for bruch or I would imagine, any meal.

Beautiful view & food presentation
An absolutely stunning view, and an intimate dining room. Service was a bit slow, only because there was a very high maintenance group and just one server working. They made up for this however with surprise amouse-bouche and dessert plates, and we had a beautiful view to take in while we relaxed and waited. Had the octopus and lobster bisque to start - beautiful presentation, beautiful flavors. Followed with the sable fish and boar - also beautiful presentation and nicely cooked - would definitely go back!

A Quintessentially Perfect Lunch!
My girlfriend and I have a tradition of treating each other to lunch on our birthdays. This year was extra special because my friend celebrated her 80th, so I wanted to take her to a very special restaurant. Hence, our visit to Fraiche. Everything was perfect! I'm sorry, but I didn't get our waiter's name. He was very attentive and helped make our luncheon experience unforgettable! We chose the Lobster Salad and a very nice New Zealand Pinot Grigio, followed by the tropical fruit salad with cappuccinos. We were treated to a surprise from the chef of a plate of mini petit fours, just a wonderful touch. - Oh! and my friend's fruit salad was served on a large white platter with chocolate "Happy Birthday" drizzled on it. Very classy!

Our first visit
We were pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the scenic view was outstanding. We would go back but only for a special occasion as it is expensive

Good food great view
I had heard great things about fraiche so decided to try it with out of town guests. The view and ambience did not disappoint. The food was all perfectly cooked. I was a bit disappointed in the menu though. At those prices I was hoping for a better and more interesting selection. The madeleines from the dessert menu are a must have. They are made to order and absolutely melt in your mouth.

Best views in Vancouver
Excellent food, great attentive service and the best views in Vancouver, made for a really lovely evening.

It was a beautiful sunny day & view is jaw dropping. Anyone who is not use to that sort of view will find it entertaining. The food is a perfect complement to the environment. Spot prawns are in season & they did not disappoint! They were served upon lobster ravioli & divine caviar with arugula for garnish. This is not the place if you wished to feel "stuffed" after dinner, but rather just appreciate the delicate tastes. The appetizer oysters were also a fine delicacy. The servers were attentive & friendly, but I wish there was someone (host?) at the door so we could have said goodbye & thank them for the delicious dinner. We have been here several times before & have had positive experiences.

Exquisite and unpretentious
We ordered two starters, one entrée, and one dessert. First, the octopus starter was divine. Of our 4 dishes, it was our favourite. Next my husband ordered the foie gras tete de cochon starter. Like the octopus, the foie was to-die-for. My sablefish entrée was totally delicious but did not have the bold flavours of our starters. The sablefish itself melted like butter in the mouth. For dessert, the warm lemon madelines with orange cream are so light and perfect, they will just send you to heaven. The only part of meal that was close to mediocre was the "C-monster margarita". For the quality you get, this meal was extremely high-value. With tax and tip, our final bill was $125 for two - an absolute bargain.

Visited Fraiche for the third time, once again very impressed with the quality of the food and the pleasant atmosphere. We love trying the tasting menu, but also recommend the regular menu items too.

Great Evening Out
Four of us had a great night. Weather was perfect so the view was spectacular. Food was great, we had four different dishes and all were equally enjoyed. Service was great, very attentive, but not intrusive. Overall a very enjoyable evening.

What a wonderful evening...
Our second visit to Fraiche was just as great as the first, some five years earlier. The incredible view was even better than the first time - with the whole of Vancouver and Burnaby spread out below us.
Service was friendly, personable and very efficient. Wine and water glasses were refilled at exactly the right moments, the food came at the appropriate intervals and the two-plus hour dinner literally flew by. While the menu is not extensive it provides something for everyone's palate, with a variety of proteins for the main courses, accompanied with very tasty and inventive garnishes, and complemented with a wide array of appetizers.
A cheese plate and complimentary macaroons and mini chocolate cheesecakes finished the meal perfectly.

Generally great with an exception
The restaurant has the most fantastic view over much of the city and beyond. The food, while generally exceptionally good, does not quite match the high price.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was incredible, servers were wonderful, mode was nice and romantic and the scenes from the restaurant is beyond this world gorgeous!!! Definitely worth going to and I will be going back for sure!

Location is just Fabulous
Location is just Fabulous on top of the mountain with an incredible view, the service was amazing, the food very exotic and delicious, but I found it a little expensive though, I guess you have to pay the price of such a fine concept. For a Special occasion is worth to pay the price of the view, service and very good food.

New Chef - first try on June 28
We enjoyed Fraiche under the stewardship of Chef Alvarez and I was concerned that it would be difficult to keep up this level of cooking going forward. The starters and mains were okay, although I thought that the chunks of Tuna in the potted tune were too large. Four of us had the strawberry shortcake and the flavour was bitter and the cakes rock hard. Our waiter took it off the bill and brought the chocolate 'parfait' which was still frozen and not much better. I have just glanced at the menu and see that the strawberry dessert is now off the menu which is probably a good thing. If Fraiche is going to survive under Chef Chow, then everything has to be of a high standard with as much attention paid to dessert as other items on the menu.

For a wedding anniversary
For a wedding anniversary celebration this was an ideal spot. We felt pampered and appreciated. The food was imaginative and beautifully presented, a real work of art for each course. Fraîche was not the sort of restaurant I would want to go to too often (The price would be prohibitive!) but that made it all the more special for an exceptional occasion.

Great service - good food
A 40-sometthing date night. Our waiter Patrick was excellent. He knew when to be there and when not to be. His commentary on the food was entertaining and informative and he had great wine advice. His excellent work was let down a little by the kitchen, which produced good but not outstanding food. First course was excellent, both involving lovely heirloom tomatoes. But the main course was different. My Halibut was overcooked enough to be just noticeably dry and my companion's meal was sauce heavy. The balance in the mashed garnishing my plate tipped too far into the butter and salt, and in general my impression was of a kitchen that, at least on this night and with our meals, relied a little too much on fats and salt to create flavour.

Able to accommodate large groups and families. Wonderful view. Service was good. Ran out of many dishes but overall great food.

A view of heaven
We dined at Fraiche and our experience was second to none. We were greeted outside the restaurant and from then on there was nothing that the staff at Fraiche would not do to make our dining experience very memorable. The serving portions are a pefect size and absolutely delicious. Our taste buds were treated to a superb meal.
The cuisine was only surpassed by the spectacular view of Vancouver. We had a beautiful sunny start to our meal and ended our evening with a glorious sunset.
Fraiche was truly a dining pleasure

A romantic but friendly Restaurant
We went there for dinner a group of 6, I requested window seats, they did it. The scene is perfect and the environment is so romantic, but we felt very at easy cus, the waiter is very nice and friendly that made my first time here friend more enjoyable.
However, could there be more choice offered for non alcoholic drinks?

Best meal ever (for her)!
The food was wonderful, the view was brilliant, and the staff were nice and helpful! A hidden gem in West Vancouver's beautiful hills, this is a must-go for any special occasion with that special someone!

Great Service - food was OK
I took customers to Fraiche earlier in the year and everything was wonderful. This last week we went with another group that had very demanding dietary restrictions. The staff at Fraiche bent over backwards to meet all of the specific needs and did it all making everyone feel good about their choices. Two of the meals included halibut - this is where we found the food lacking. With fresh halibut it is a sin to overcook the fish - both dishes were overcooked and lost a lot of the flavor and texture you expect. The rest of the meal was very special.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I normally take out of towners and local clients to Fraiche and they are never disappointed. Highly Recommended.

Had a wonderful dining experience at Fraiche, which began with our outstanding server greeting us at the door by name. He was stellar and made our evening of exceptional food and lovely surroundings even better.

Excellent Service and Great View
We went to Fraiche on an evening where they were having electrical problems so most of the lighting in the dining room was out. They were very apologetic and filled the place with candles which actually led to a much more intimate feeling.
They have expanded their menu to meet the needs of the 'non-meat lovers' and had a great variety of choices. The food is prepared wonderfully, looks great, and tastes great. The service is fabulous. I would go here again and again. And the view is extraordinary. It's out of the way, but worth the drive up.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful view, definitely one of the best in the Vancouver area. Great service and great food. My wife and I had a great time on our anniversary. If I had to find one negative it would be the prices - very expensive. Meal for two with a couple of appetizers, two glasses of wine and a martini ran us $150 pre tip. Well worth it for a special occasion, but of course not everyone is going to spend this kind of money regularly except those that live in the neighborhood that surrounds the restaurant.

we had a wonderful tasting experience. We will go back very soon to taste some other items of the menu.

Good place for private or friends
I have been to Fraiche a few times, very good service and food. Locate in the very quite and private residential area. Stunning view but the day we went it felt like we were above the clouds. Because of foggy whole Vancouver to the sea, it was different kind of atmosphere. Good to go couple or with friends for 4 max.

While each of us enjoyed our food and certainly the view is spectacular on a beautiful day, the menu was limited for a Sunday lunch.

We dined at Fraiche for the first time On Nov.9th. It exceeded our expectations. We had a perfect corner table with a magnificent view of the city sparkling below. The ambiance, service & exquisite food made for a memorable evening. We will definitely return.

Spectacular view of Vancouver along with great food and service. Our out of town guest enjoyed all!

Chef's Tasting Manu is great
5 courses chef's tasting was fatanstic way to explore and try different dishes. You could taste the love and passion that chef has put into each dish.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Above our Expectations
We were greeted by friendly staff at the door and taken to our table immediately
Our lunch was served in an efficient yet very well paced so that we could enjoy our wine and the view and continue our conversation.
The food - well it was outstanding! I had the seared scallops over lemon risotto - oh my, so good, another had the chestnut chicken and reported it great, another had the short ribs that were so tender and tasty
We then had the cheescake which was delicious and not over sweet
The view is astounding
Now I will be forced to return with my husband for a romantic dinner!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food, wine and service were amazing. Had the steelhead and steak. Definitely will be going back.
