It has a really relaxed atmosphere, price is decent, and food was great in general. Except that I found the roast duck poutine way too salty for my liking (I was in sodium shock for at least 10 sec after my first bite). But other than that, we had a lovely dinner! And the roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts was sublime!

Innovative menu in a very cool restaurant. Service was excellent. The falafel hummus bowl was amazing flavour with lots of veggies. My friend thought the elk flank was superb. All topped off with great wines from BC.

Cleverness of the menu has lost its lustre. Feature of local farmers and ranchers appears to have abated some.
Bring back the to-die-for menu offering your kale salad, the halibut, and the pork chop. New menu is ho-hum.

We had a nice meal in this restaurant on a quiet evening. The food was good but I would not rate it spectacular. The ingredients are all locally sourced which is nice. There are casual and comfort food options on the menu which went well with our cold rainy evening and the service was attentive. The restaurant is upscale cafe style. The bar had a decent selection of local craft brews and there were many local wines on the wine list. I think this is a solid selection for a casual meal on Granville Island. I am sure this restaurant will be very busy during prime tourist season.

We had a very nice meal here. I was really looking forward to all of the Canadian sourced food and drinks. I feel bad saying this because it was really a pleasant experience and nothing was really wrong, but I wasn't blown away by the food and cocktails. I had really high expectations based on the menu descriptions, but all of things we tried weren't that spectacular. I was hoping for some really unique flavors but all of it ended up being rather normal. Well done, but normal. I would try it again just because we liked the atmosphere; but maybe with more tempered expectations.

Great place for casual clean comfort food. Nice people, not professional but not presumptuous either. One of the portions was too small for the price (seafood stew). The BC-centric wine list is excellent but they should add flights. Overall the food was very good to excellent and it was a good experience. We will return.

Everything was good except for the seafood hot pot. I be had WAY better. Potatoes in a hot pot is a no no. The squid, mushroom risotto and steelhead and beer were all very good. Waiter was good but was the only waiter on so had to wave him down a few too many times.

We were searching for a restaurant featuring Canadian ingredients. Edible Canada on Granville Island not only featured them but prepared unique & tasty dishes out of them. We enjoyed a Fraser Valley pork chop with polenta (I asked for the rhubarb mostarda on the side), an Eastern Canada sturgeon (flown in fresh) with brussel sprout leaves & potatoes, and the most awesome carmelized goat cheese cheesecake with a blueberry compote. We will need to return to sample the elk, etc... There are free parking spots for 3 hours within a short distance.

Food was absolutely delicious, and staff was friendly and helpful. The Bison plate gave me a killer stomach ache which was disappointing, but my date thoroughly enjoyed his Elk steak.

The staff was very friendly and they were able to accommodate us with a child, which is not easy all the time. Food was excellent and it was not those Canadian big portions that we are used to. They have very interesting items on the menu.

Edible Canada does a consistently good job with a limited menu of local (that is, BC) ingredients. The ambience is good, and prices are fair.

I took my best friend here for her birthday brunch and we had a great time! Food and drinks were amazing. The server was nice. Things took a bit longer than I thought they would but we weren’t in a rush so I didn’t have a problem with it. All in all we had an amazing experience!

It felt like the service was shorthanded. The wine menu was forgotten when we seated.

Also, at the time of making the reservation, it asked if it was a special occasion, and it was a birthday celebration. I was a little disappointed that there was not one mention of this by anyone at the restaurant.

Server was aware of possible need to get orders in quickly as many customers seemed to be going off to a show. The restaurant emptied out about 7:45 as a result of this.
Arrived earlier than reservations but was able to be seated anyway to take advantage of happy hour.
Food was good but would have enjoyed seeing some of the dishes from "dine out menu"

The service was excellent: our glasses was promptly filled with water, the server took pains to explain the different dishes to us and made personal recommendations, and most importantly he was genuinely courteous. The portion was small but the quality was decent. I was however expecting some pizzazz at this price range. The fries of the duck poutine taste no different from those that you get from New York fries but the duck was definitely the highlight. Juicy and tender with just the right amount of salt. Overall it was a good experience.

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.
