We ate at Edible Canada for Valentine's Day. They had a four course $50 menu which was excellent, as well as a wine flight available for pairings. The regular menu always features many local foods and the valentine's menu was no exception. This restaurant is really a hidden gem and flies under the radar, I think due to its name and location on Granville Island. The food is fine-dining quality and rivals that of Bishops Farmer's Apprentice.
They do need to work on their service, which is good, but not at the same level as the food.

We had a short period of time to eat and get to the theatre production across the street from the restaurant. The waitstaff was very accommodating. We ordered the fish and chips and is was very fresh tasting. We also had the chocolate brownie for dessert which was great. We were able to have coffee and pay our bill in time to see our show! I'd go back again.

Food was great, service less so - we had been there less than an hour when the hostess stopped by and asked if we wanted our bill. We asked instead if we could order hot chocolate... she twice asked if we wanted them to go. When we did ask for the bill maybe 10 minutes later, the pleasure and relief on her face was evident. Not a great way to wrap up an otherwise nice brunch.

Disappointing food and service. Reservations for 7:00 pm and chairs stacked around us at 8:20 pm. What??? They decide to close early but we weren’t informed at time of reservation or seating. No such thing as as leisure dinner before the show. I had great hopes for this restaurant but food was mediocre and our server couldn’t wait to leave. Not attentive. Wouldn’t recommend and won’t be back

Reliably delicious, locally sourced cuisine that is worth seeking out on Granville Island. Excellent, unobtrusive service in a casually elegant atmosphere.

Positively loved the creativeness of the food and the fact that all ingredients are Canadian sourced. The menu is so unique. Every staff member that we came in contact with were very excellent and pleasant. Only downside was that the restaurant was crowded and noisy but that was probably ue to the fact it was Dine-out-Vancouver event. Definitely will be going back.

We were there for the Special Dine-out event and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious cuisine by a First Nations Chef.
We found the restaurant rather noisy and the sitting arrangement very uncomfortable.
But we were there for the food and it was fantastic.

The uniquely Canadian and First Nations chef inspired menu was the main attraction and the food did not disappoint. The service was outstanding and even though it was a Dine Out venue, there was no pressure to rush through the meal and make way for the next reservation.
The atmosphere and the surroundings very warm and welcoming.
A great Dine Out Vancouver experience!!

Ask for a table away from the door and away from the bar.

Edible Canada is one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver (top 3 in a city where we're spoiled for choice!) and they brought their A Game to Dine Out. It was hard to choose from all of the interesting and exciting options, and I settled on the seal tataki, turkey leg, and bannock, and my partner went for the oysters, elk medallions, and berry pudding. Every bite was incredible. I love the way that Edible encourages patrons to experience creative Canadian cuisine by offering such an impressive array of options. They also offer some of the best and most unique cocktails in the city. We were delighted. Keep up the excellent work!

We enjoyed the attentive service, use of Canadian ingredients, great beer list, and the value of our meal. I can happily recommend Edible Canada as a good place to visit, even during Dine Out. Where one usually expects minimal service, huge crowds, and no time to linger, we were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance, attention, and leisure.

Delicious dinner to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. We went during Dine Out and were impressed with the creative menu and enjoyed every dish. Our server knew a lot about the dishes and wines, very helpful! The only downside was that it was very packed and busy in the restaurant, probably because of Dine Out.

Delicious food as always. The seal tataki was a bit of a miss - missing some sort of acidity or brightness to offset the unctuous quality of the meat but everything else was spot on! Server was decidedly NOT as knowledgeable about the menu as is typical for this restaurant, but pleasant enough. The somalier was lovely and made a great wine recommendation.

One of my favourite restaurants in the city.

Edible was creative for DineOut in hosting an Indigenous chef from NWT; the menu for Dine out was creative, unique and well-executed. So bravo to the chef.........the fry bread was a little chewy compared to previous versions that I have eaten, but the rest of the offerings were all rather good.
My biggest complaint was the snippy hostess who sat us right by the door on a chilly night [despite the fact that our reservation had been made weeks ago, and we changed the time of our reservation to fit with the needs of the restaurant] and even though other tables for 4 were free, she ABSOLUTELY refused to move us. One of my dining companions had a cane and wasn't walking well [so perhaps should not have been sitting in a draft!] but Ms. Ice Queen was oblivious and seemed more interested in kowtowing to the hipster diners, rather than us, neighbourhood seniors with money. She needs a lesson in being a hostess or should seek an alternate career. Very unimpressive! I understand the challenges of DineOut on a Saturday night, but simple human compassion should not go out the window. Not sure if I will ever return!

When I made the reservation there was no indication that it was Dine Out Vancouver. I was disappointed with the limited menu that was available on the day of my visit to the restaurant and since it was Dine Out it was very busy and the food prep was rushed. I was hoping to try some of the dishes listed on Edible Canada's online menu.
