A convivial atmosphere, enhanced by the cozy fire place, invites diners to
linger a while. Dinner tables are set with crisp linen, making you feel like a
welcome guest at a friend’s home. If meeting a friend for a drink or appies,
have a seat along the bar, where there’s great people-watching. Pastis is as
close as you can get to Paris without a plane ticket. It has one of the city’s
largest wine selections by the glass. Very romantic.

We purchased a lunch travelzoo voucher for $39 which includes two appetizers up to $10 and two entrees up to $22 each.
The only appetizer under $10 on the entire menu is a mixed green salad.
(A very small handful of plain lettuce with some dressing) that’s it. Very very bland.
My husband ordered steak tartar for $16 which was also bland with no flavour.
The only two items on the entire menu that are under $22 are eggs which come with a salad which I don’t need as I just had a salad, or a mushroom dish.
My husband ordered a $17 ham and cheese sandwich. Awful and dry!
I ordered the sable fish for $27 as there is nothing really less than that price other than the two sandwiches.
My sable fish was on 3 kale leaves and was about 1x1 in size.
We used to go to this restaurant often.
Never ever again!
The waiter added 15% gratuity on the bill and we were a table of two.
I had one glass of wine, and my husband had two glasses.
We paid an extra $80.00 for lunch today,
So in total we paid $120 for a lunch for two.
No dessert.
We told the owner that this is not a deal at all, because they charged us extra for the appetizer and the entree.

He did not care at all.
He said the lunch menu is not the best for travelzoo as there is little selection.
He did not say sorry or anything.

Food is bland and owner does not care if you come back or not.

Our previous meals were always soooo good, but this Valentine's Day evening with a set menu of a 6 course meal was basically a bit of a huge disappointment! Our beef tenderloin was barely warm and the desert came with half melted ice cream. When we asked for a fresh scoop the server looked at us like we swore???

I do not think they have the staff or coordination ability to handle such an event.

Go for a nice dinner during the week and it is fantastic!

Cheers.

Consistently great experiences at Bistro Pastis. The mushroom veloute and braised beef cheeks were full of rich flavour, and the 2005 Bordeaux opened up beautifully. Pleasant visits with our server and our host, who is always so welcoming. Pastis continues to be at the top of our list of favourites in Vancouver!

Service and ambiance is always very good. Steak serving in Steak Frittes is much improved from before. Now excellent. Corkage fee is also very reasonable. A favourite lunch venue for our business meetings and highly recommended.

Reasonably good options for DineOut; at least much better than many of the neighbourhood competitors. Helpful host and the tables were managed well which can be a nightmare at DineOut. The appetizers and desserts were good; could have done without the huge serving of lentils with the beef cheeks.......didn't really work and way too many lentils but the Arctic char was done nicely. Always like an excuse to go to Bistro Pastis.

I wish I could recommend Bistro Pastis- the staff are great and the room has such a good feel.
Unfortunately, the kitchen is erratic with some brilliant dishes and some poorly done- the painfully crunchy du Puy lentils comes to mind. The bar is similarly erratic, with some great drinks and wine pairings mixed with an astringent cocktail and micro-sized pours of dessert wines.

Not as good as previous occasions. The brunch menu was not very good this time.
The coffee was very poor (weak and not hot enough). There is no excuse for poor coffee in Vancouver! Overall, reasonable but not exceptional food.

The dinner menu items were reduced due to Dine Out Vancouver. They should have both the regular menu and a prix fixe menu for Dine Out. This just speaks to the laziness if the chef and kitchen staff. By accommodating Dine Out patrons they did not accommodate the repeat clientele who come back time and time again. The meal quality could have been better. This time it was not good value for money.
