I had the escargot and the bouillabaisse and they were both very fresh and delicious. They definitely use quality, fresh ingredients. It was a little bit pricey, my meal was 65$ (w/ tax & tip) and 2 small glasses of wine but certainly not outrageous. The waitress was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant is casual.

After considering the restaurant
After considering the restaurant a few times we finally made it there and no regrets. Very good, straight forward French fare as you would expect to find in Europe. On a rainy Tuesday night the place was pretty quiet but the service was very good, friendly and knowledgable. Will be back for sure.

Cafe de Paris was always our
Cafe de Paris was always our favourite neighbourhood restaurant for decades while living in the West End.
We are delighted with the "new" transformation since Pastis is also one of our favourites. Great bistro food and ambiance...the service is always good and the attention to detail with the food is much appreciated.

Charming bistro in the vibrant
Charming bistro in the vibrant West End of Vancouver. The menu was uncomplicated bistro fare. The three of us started with the beef tartare, escargot cocotte and the French onion fondu. All were great choices. We had the chicken, mussles and fish as mains, and all three dishes were done well. Desserts were just the right portion to finish off the meal. Overall, a nice neighborhood gem for casual bistro fare.

An excellent meal.
We had an excellent meal at Le Parisien. The food was delicious, and the service was friendly and attentive. Even though the restaurant was quite full, our server kept us informed as to the progress of our meal.

Had an excellent meal at Le Parisien following a Canucks game on Saturday night. Wonderful food and service. Will definitely be going back.

Great Option in a Slim Sea
Where noodle houses, shwarmas, and "shovel it in" restaurants dominate the scene, there's salvation in everything French. Le Parisien is back and is fantastic. With French waiters from Paris and elegant cuisine, this is going to be our "goto" restaurant in the West End. Thank you for options!

Classy yet casual
Unlike most restaurants in Vancouver that offer classier fare and try and establish themselves as a cut above the rest, Le Parisien is a very welcoming, friendly environment with true attention to detail that's noticeable in every bite. The service from the moment we walked in was fantastic - they greeted us all warmly, made sure we had water and menus immediately, and offered us the specials when we each sat down. The waiters offered us individualised dishes, accommodating each person's request without question. The food was delicious - all freshly prepared and well plated. I can't wait to come back and try more of their delicious creations!! It has a real elegance, without being arrogant and pompous.

New favourite in West End
We have been for brunch and dinner a few times now and just awesome service, so friendly and accommodating. The food has been amazing. Best croque-monsieur I've had. And dinner was so delicious, and just the right size serving. Thank you!

Another great meal at Le Parisien..
Visited mid week for a romantic dinner and, though the regular weekend staff wasn't around; we were warmly welcomed. Food was wonderful (pâté, escargots en cocotte, vegetarian ravioli and seafood special). Best seats are at the bay windows, overlooking tree lined street.

My daughters and I had dinner at Le Parisien on June 1, 2013. We hadn't been to the restaurant before and therefore had no expectations but very high hopes. From the moment we entered to the time we departed we enjoyed our experience. The smoked chicken liver and foie gras parfait is a must. The portion is huge and the flavour is outstanding. My one complaint is that the parfait should be served with an extra toast point.
Will definitely return.

with their doors open to the summer air the restaurant was already as we came in inviting, the service was promt then, effivcient, and constantly friendly and courteous, we even made friends of both Katherine and Alexander in merely minutes, our chicken liver pâé was to write home about, as well as the charming pot it came in, and my main course tenderloin was cooked to utter perfection, this is now the bistro to beat, a very hearty thanks, un très grand merci

Great Food for a Great Price!
My friends & I enjoyed a lovely french style dinner in this bistro. The Beef Bourguignon was melt in your mouth divine! We will return and their brunch menu looked intriguing, can't wait to try it.

met all expectations
Often, expectations just aren't met when we go out for French food, usually because of the staff (why is this?) and sometimes the food, but this was a pleasant exception. We hit a good night, as it wasn't a full restaurant, which worried me, but fortunately allowed the staff to wait on us with ease and care without being cloying and disruptive. The food - the best part - was superb. I had a special and it didn't disappoint. A lovely evening out for dinner with the family. A limited vegetarian menu, but what is there is "amazing" my son said.

Food exceeded expectations
I had pan-seared scallops and grilled prawns, three of each, atop risotto with chorizo bits in it and a few greens on top. This was our third visit to Le Parisien, where we expect dependably decent French food at a bistro price. This was a step higher than that despite the $25 price. Similarly, my wife had the duck confit salad and said it was perfect. Many restaurants in such touristy areas offer substandard food and dead-eyed service, but this place has a neighbourly vibe and excellent eats.

Always a wonderful time. Thank you for making our date night so special!

Terrific French Fare. Good Value!
This neighborhood French restaurant is a gem. The onion soup is out-of-this-world. I ate there with a group of friends. Between us we sampled most of the entrees on the menu. The beef bourguignon was delicious. Served on a bed of mashed potatoes with carrots and mouth watering gravy. The meat practically fell apart with a fork. The mussels were fresh, hot, and served in a broth that was soaked up easily after the mussels were eaten. Two of my friends had the bouillabaisse and while the seafood was good they were not wild about the amount of flavor in the broth. Another friend had the duck breast and she raved about it. The prices were very reasonable and the staff was attentive and very busy. I'll eat here again next time in Vancouver.

Our meal at Le Parisien was fantastic! From the warm, crusty french baguette with a great red wine, to the entrees, our meals were wonderful. The flavors in the food were as authentic a french meal as can be eaten in France itself. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves french food.

J'Adore Le Parisien
We Look forward to our visits to Le Parisien with or without friends. Gillaume is the finest front of the House Manager ever. His eyes don't miss anything. The small kitchen continuously turns out wonderful meals. We have very busy schedules that keep us away from home a lot - but we try to dine here certainly once a month. Also their prices are more affordable than Yaletown, Kits, or Downtown restaurants.

It was our first time here
It was our first time here after saying for months that we should go. It was the perfect end to a busy work week. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal, drinks and ambiance. Love the French bistro vibe. Amazing French Onion Soup! We will definitely be back soon!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Classic French, with a new menu for fall, would have loved anything on the menu. Chicken liver/foie gras pate -divine. Good, timely service. Not too noisy. Highly recommended!

Great spot for romantic dinner
Anniversary dinner did not disappoint-succulent escargot in tarragon cream needed more bread to mop up sauce! Duck cassoulet was rich/warming, and lamb shank w ratatouille was so tender. Great flavors/excellent seasoning. Loved apple struedel - not too sweet. On service side, evening started without a hitch - I was seated right away and offered a cocktail while my husband searched for parking. Smooth unobtrusive but attentive service by our French waiter, up until our mains were done. Then, suddenly one of the gals brought our bill - strange! She thought we were done. No offer of dessert/coffee when mistake pointed. Took quite long for our waiter to come back to offer dessert - kind of deflated finish to meal. Very decent value for quality.

It's all about the little things
Le Parisien offers fantastic attentive and friendly service, where they take the time to ensure you experience is memorable. Things like recommending a twist on a traditional cocktail, squeezing the fresh lemons to order, offering something off menu or substitutions to suit our taste. The food is divine...again, its the attention to detail. Fresh ingredients, perfectly balanced flavours, and good portion sizes. The space is so comfortable, and tastefully decorated.

superb food and drink, right
superb food and drink, right down to my hot cognac, impeccable service in both English and French, and probably other also languages, the best frites I've ever had, try them with mayonnaise, a little bit of Paris, surely, in convivial Vancouver
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent and consistent food and service. Frites could use a little work as they used to be exceptional but could only be called "very good" on this occasion.

A perfect Lunch for two
I LOVE this restaurant. It's elegant, chic and truly a gem in the neighbourhood.
Service is impeccable and the Manager was such a delight to speak with. I will always return.
Delicious food, fabulous portions and such great ambiance...
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
I have been to the restaurant 3 times recently and found the food was excellent. My guests and I particularly enjoyed the pork belly and escargot in tarragon sauce as well as the Beef Bourguignon. The staff are very welcoming and the service has been friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Le Parisien to friends.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will definitely go back again
Started off with seared scallops which was a special of the day.The ribeye is amazing. Cooked to perfection. Server was very helpful and knowledgeable. Great food. Great drinks. Great ambience. We were too stuffed to try any of the desserts. We'll definitely go back again for dessert, more food and drinks.
