Went for brunch with the family to celebrate my birthday. Food was good, most of us had the eggs benny, Mimosa's were on special and our waitress was friendly and attentive. Overall it was a good experience, not exceptional, but I would recommend this restaurant and I would go back.

The food was amazing, the ambiance delightful. My only complaint was with being greeted and seated. We arrived as a group of 3 about 10 minutes before our reservation, and a group of four showed up behind us. Despite arriving first and needing the same number of seats, the other group was seated first, and I can't help but wonder if that was due to their suit-and-tie apparel, as opposed to our Friday night casuals. Hmm... Without this experience, I would have given this restaurant a resounding 5-star review.

Our Dine Out experience was very poor. The food took a long time and when we finally got it, it was like warm. The dinner was very underwhelming. The only bright spot was the service. Everyone wait staff was polite and attentive.

We went for dinnet at Edible Canada for the first night of Dine Out event, it was very busy, so the service was a bit slow, but overall very nice. The food was really good, we were especially impressed by the seal tataki special and the arctic char. Overall very good experience! Will definitely come back!

I have a long list of food intolerances and made that list available to our server. The manager came by to discuss the menu and went to the kitchen to talk with them about the options they could offer; there were at least 3 trips between our table and the kitchen altogether. I was SO happy with their concern - a kitchen mistake can result in my being ill for days/weeks. I felt comfortable that they would take good care of us.
The meal we enjoyed was excellent, and safe for me. Can't wait to eat there again!

The food was not wow... to be honest, I was more impressed by the menu than the actual way the food was served. Cocktail was delish. What disappointed me the most was that I indicated this was a birthday dinner and they didn’t do anything special like most nice restaurants would... No happy birthday, nothing. I’m better off going to the keg for a special evening.

We absolutely loved everything we ate - a pork terrine, confit pork cheeks, and a prawn and squash pasta. Service was fast and friendly. I ordered a cocktail that was off-menu, which was a mistake - next time I would stick to what they definitely know how to make.

Dinner was mostly great, but the Humboldt squid was disappointing - kind of mushy! If it's supposed to be that way, I won't order it again, but otherwise, it won't keep me from coming back to enjoy another meal. Thanks.

Four of us were dining prior theatre. Our reservation was for 5:30pm on a Thursday night. We had a nice casual welcome when we entered the restaurant. After that our impression dropped substantially. Service was slow. Excessively slow. The restaurant was not busy and it apprpeared there was only one person serving tables. We waited at least 10mins longer than expected between each course. We had to ask for coffee as no one was asking us. We finally ordered coffee 45mins prior theatre start thinking we had enough time to enjoy the coffee, pay for the bill and walk across the street in time for the theatre. No coffee in sight after 15mins. We tracked down the lady who refilled water on the table and told her we no longer had time for coffee, take it off the bill, find our waiter and give us the bill. Another 5mins went by when the coffee came as 2 of us were leaving. We turned the coffee back and said it arrived too late. They knew early on we were going to the theatre for 7:30pm. After much ado the men asked again for the bill. When it came after another 5mins the coffee was still listed. After further discussion and another 5mins the bill was paid. There were apologies about the delays but that was not good enough. The service when we had it, was polite but the delays were totally unacceptable.
The food was acceptable but nothing outstanding. We will not return.

The food was excellent! I had the bison there for the first time and enjoyed it vey much. The service was great and they gave me my special request to have a surprise cake for my friend’s birthday. The overall feel and ambiance of the place was relaxed. Was definitely a great dining experience and i would go back.

Food was pretty average for what it was. Poutine was in a hot iron pan, but was not that hot, temperature wise, itself. Be aware when it comes to payment time, they arrive with the debit machine, but they've configured it so that you're tipping on the "after tax total", which is a bit of a dubious and shady extra cash grab, IMO. The waiter also was presumptuous and had pre-selected 18% tax for himself as an option on the tipping buttons, which I thought was pretty ballsy. It took them a while to catch on that we were seated and never actually presented with menus. I was underwhelmed by it all. I would rate them as "OK, but not great."

The staff was very accommodating for our party of 8. Two young adults in their 20's, left early without ordering a meal. I wondered if it was too pricey for them.
Our meals were tasty. A couple of people said they would remember to come again.

I know we live in difficult times and that waiters are struggling to be paid a fair wage. Many of us are. So I found that setting up the visa machine to 18% gratuity was a bit over the top for me. Really??!! I choose what I want to give, as I can. I am not sure if this was a personal choice of the waiter or the dictates of the restaurant but the audacity took my breath away and did not bring him the result he wanted.

I can imagine this is a most lucrative procedure when the sun is out and tourists are too busy to notice. But on any day, not just a rainy Wednesday when we stopped by for a quick lunch and tea, I felt it was pretty cheeky. It's not the amount I mind, it was the way it was done.

Edible Canada lives up to its name. Bringing Canadiana to the Vancouver restaurant scene is what this place is about - Elk, rabbit, seal and now sturgeon - all sustainable and properly procured showing customers the quality, taste and value these food proteins have.
Rounding this off is the excellent customer service Harriet and her team provide along with a creative beverages list that highlight Canadian made craft spirits, BC wines and craft breweries. Go and enjoy, bring an open mind and you will be rewarded.

Service was slow. Disappointing dinner as we had previously had brunch here and thought it was great. Drinks started badly - cranberry smash was nothing special, Chinatown was not a good mix of flavours and Mike Weir (non alcoholic) tasted like straight lemon juice with no sweetener and had to be sent back to get re-mixed. Poutine was good but curry hotpot was bland, humboldt squid was extremely salty (obviously not tasted in the kitchen). Standout dish was tuna tostada but very small portion for $15. Did not stay for dessert given the disappointing entrees. Would come back for brunch but not for dinner.

The service from our waiter Chris was fantastic. The Cache Creek burger had too much truffle jam on it and my husband did not like it. Chris graciously offered to bring him a replacement meal of Duck Poutine which was much better. The service was expedient and courteous. I'd give the food 3.5/5 as it was good but not spectacular. Overall it was a pleasant experience but given the hype I heard I was slightly underwhelmed by the food. Service deserves 5/5...he got a 25% tip.

My friend and I both enjoyed our dinners... Each had a starter and a main that we loved. The service was good and the atmosphere pleasant, though the music was a tad too loud as is the case in most Vancouver restaurants nowadays. I was meeting a friend I had not seen for a while to catch up a bit, and Lowering the music volume a tad would have made for a much more pleasant evening for us as the high volume occasionally interfered with our ability to hear one another.
