A word from Yaletown Brewing Company
The Yaletown Brewing Company is Vancouver's original and best Brewpub. Founded in 1994, just as the former warehouse district of Yaletown was just beginning to emerge as a destination for businesses and residents, the YBC was built with the vision of being a true neighbourhood pub - a welcoming gathering place whether you arrived dressed in a suit or flip-flops.
With a 160-seat Restaurant and a lively Pub with TVs, a pool table and a fireplace, YBC has become a one-stop destination for everything from large corporate events to quick after-work beers with the regulars.
Make your reservations today for our dinning room; please note that all pub and patio seating is offered on a first come first serve basis.

Diner Reviews
  • "We made reservations the day of, we had no problems booking a table for six people. My wife & I had eaten here before, so I was delegated, to find a place for dinner with two other couples. The food and service, was outstanding, our friends really enjoyed their meals, and it was reasonably priced. Our friends, were impressed with the quality of their meals. The atmosphere at YBC, was great, the noise level was minimal, we had commented on how you could talk without raising your voice at the table! I'm sure, we will be back again, it was a great meal."

  • "I had a quick lunch at the Yaletown Pub. I was craving a burger and they have one on the menu. They were more the willing to tweak their burger configuration into the way I wanted. It proved to be perfectly to my liking! And the service was absolutely perfect --- fast, friendly and flexible."

  • "Love love love being a regular at the Yaletown Brewing Company! They know my usuals now that a smile and a nod with the regular serving crew gets me exactly what I want! Who could ask for anything more?"

  • "We arrived to find a teeny tiny table we couldn't even squish into our chairs and were not big people. They didn't see a problem us being cramed into our table. Eventually someone helped us more. Good was awesome but all seating was undesirable"

  • "Our server was beyond exceptional and easily handled our party of 6 with no issues and no complaints. She memorized everyone's orders and made sure throughout our stay that everyone had drinks and full water glasses."

  • "Uninterested wait-staff. Stood around confused waiting for the hostess when we arrived for like 5 minutes before one of the Cooks noticed we looked lost & helped us. Tons of kids in the restaurant, which made it loud & awkward. Semi-uninspired menu, but I did manage to get something that was plant-based & delicious so that was good. Also it's a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful location & their pints on Sundays were $3.91!!!!! Best I've ever seen in Vancouver. "

  • "We were in town for the Avalanche vs Canucks game and booked reservations here. Great dinner. Excellent service considering we were in our Avalanche gear! Hostess gave us free passes to their trolley which dropped us at the arena. Well played Yaletown."

  • "This used to be a twice a week stop for us. Now it is like every other month even though we live about two blocks away. There seems to have been a substantial staff turnover for some reason. Lots of new faces. But specifically problematic is the decline in food quality. Neither of us actually enjoyed our meal. The old favourites are being prepared differently than in the past. The beer remains great though. We will give the place another try a few months from now I guess."

  • "First time here, maybe not the last. Very convenient location, especially with the Yaletown Skytrain station so close by. Located in the heart of Yaletown, so not much parking available in the evenings. Lovely service, lots of groups coming in for dinner. Sometimes the other groups can get a bit disruptive, pounding on the tables, but that's not the restaurant's fault. Cover your glasses and food if they decide to shoot the confetti over your table :)"

  • "My Mac & Cheese was molten lava. The rest of party was done eating before mine was cool enough to eat. Also don't shred chorizo sausage, it needs to be in larger pieces."

  • "Sunday was $9.00 Pizza night which is good value for your money. Our server was attentive but not in your face. We have been many times and its a great spot for a good meal that doesn't cost a fortune."

  • "We've eaten there a couple of times when the BC Lions are playing. Food and service is great and there's even a shuttle to take you to the stadium. We opted to walk the few blocks as our tummies were full and we needed a bit of exercise!"

  • "We are from Portland. We took our out of country guests to the yaletown brewery. They loved it. The beer choices were good, and the wide range of food choices were delicious. We went back the next day to the bar section for drinks! Ambiance was delightful."

  • "Needed somewhere to eat before the theatre. We wanted to be sure we would get a large table and would get out on time. We booked but found ourselves about the only people in the restaurant. At one time for lunch you had to book or wait outside. The food is typical for an upscale bar. The pizzas are particularly good. The main attraction of courses the on-site brewery. The first in Vancouver . All in all value for money reliable pleasant atmosphere"

  • "Yaletown Brewing is consistently delicious...the Tempura Prawn Burger is delish and you gotta try the calamari...and Yuri their 'in-house" magician Yuri is simply amazing."
    Dined on 9/5/2013
  • "Great place to hang out with friends. Good selection of brews. Get there early to get to try their special cask. The menu also has a good selection of appies, stir frys, pizzas and sandwiches. Overall, a good spot to meet up with friends."

  • "When you reserve a table you don't expect to be seated at one with a slope to it. She asked us if we wanted to move but placed us next to a large family party. We where seated next to a group of children who didn't have much parental guidance and they kept on encroaching into our space. The waitress did ask us if that seating would be OK but you don't want to appear rude in front of the family and say no. I think this is where the staff could use their initiative and think about the customers needs. In our case a table where we could engage in conversation."
    Dined on 8/22/2013
  • "It was a party of three and all of us ordered the chicken burger (the one with TWO THIGHS). One of us clearly got what was advertised on the menu (two thighs). HOWEVER, the other two received ONE super tiny thigh and ANOTHER piece of chicken meat that was no more than 4cm by 4cm (even smaller than a chicken LEG). It took more than 10 minutes before the server came to our table (and she only came by because we went around the place to find her). Server was being argumentative and suggested that the small portion is correct and that the person that got two thighs got an outrageous portion (note that shortly after we saw another party with the same big portion). Server was uncooperative and reluctant to help."

  • "Our group of six enjoyed lunch on Sunday at Yaletown Brewery. Great place to relax and enjoy the company of friends while enjoying great food. On Sunday the pizzas - which are fantastic - are on at reduced prices which is an added bonus to an already great outing. We'll definitely be returning to this great spot."

  • "Our birthday celebration was unexpectedly graced with the gift of a high quality Tshirt, which we all autographed with suitable messages for our celebrant. Also, the fellow who came by our table and showed us some great card tricks was also very fun."
    Dined on 2/15/2013
  • "The food was great and service was great, however when I got there, they told me I had a limited time to be there and eat as a big party was in, this wasn't very nice to hear. The rest of my party ended up being late so we had to move twice so my only complaint was that they have limited times for reservations but our plan was to stay there longer than an hour and half but they said that is how their turnover was, not very good for people wanting to spend money."
    Dined on 2/8/2013
  • "It was an overall good experience! It was our first time going here and all I can say is, I'm definitely coming back here again! Our server was really nice and friendly and it was a nice place to relax and catch up with friends."
