Food and service were very good. Atmosphere.... not great for quiet conversation. Seemed like wait staff was running around. Frenetic.... Not really relaxing.

I had a business lunch here a couple years ago. It was one of those ones where there's so much talking you don't notice things like the food and service. This week I went twice and both times impressed my guests and hit the spot for a crummy, rainy Vancouver lunch. It's a short walk from the office so it's now my go to business lunch.

It was a nice place to have a weekday brunch/lunch! I really like the space, and the food is good too. One of the best spots to eat in Granville island- great location, great size, great vibe.

A special get together with old friends with very limited choices for lunch - mainly breakfast items. It was quite noisy and not very comfortable. There is no view. The washroom entrance was blocked by a ladder up to some sort of storage area. The food was passable and the prices were reasonable. However, I won't return for this kind of event. Might be better in the evening.

Service was a little slow, but it was pretty busy this day (Sunday brunch). Our server was kind, but wasn't able to be as attentive due to having a few big tables. I had to get up to ask for a few things. The food here is really good though!

Went with a girlfriend and her 3 year old (and mine) for brunch before the Charlie Brown Christmas play at Carousel theatre. The little girls shared the challah French toast with berries and they loved it. She and I had eggs and ours were great too. They provided crayons and colouring paper and the service was prompt and friendly. Bathrooms super clean too. Loved it!

My best friend and I were looking to try something new and found Edible Canada on Yelp so we decided to try it out. We had a great time! Our server was absolutely excellent and gave great recommendations on our food and drinks. I would definitely recommend this place to others and I quite enjoy that your bill gets you 10% any purchase in the market in the back of the restaurant. Will be coming back soon with more friends soon!

The people beside us had their food in about 30 seconds...however I'm not paying Edible Canada prices which are high - to be rushed out the door in 30 minutes. We ordered one dish at a time so that we could stay 1 1/2 hours - and enjoy this part of our evening before we went across to the theatre. It felt insulting that we had to game the restaurant like this.

The beet salad was good but the vinaigrette wasn't perfectly balanced. The cod was tasty. The french fries were soft and mushy instead of crisp. The brownie was good. Wine choices were nice and not unreasonably priced.

A much nicer room for summer then winter.

If you're on Granville Island not a terrible choice but overpriced and only so so.

The food was excellent, very tasty. I ate at Edibles for brunch, it had a smaller selection for brunch in the best way possible. The breakfast was superb (11/10) and the hot chocolate had a hint of cinnamon and was very tasty; it tasted like Christmas exploding in my mouth, the lights, trees, cookies. My friend ordered the mango passionfruit soda and it took her back to her trip in Cancun, a slap in the face of tropical paradise. The ambiance was very hipster, modern, cool, chill, chillaxing, you name it. Although my experience was the best day in my life, it was a little bit expensive for my financial situation.

Good, but has lost a bit of its lustre from previous visits. Food was tasty and enjoyable but nothing that would warrant another trip or recommendation. Ambiance and restaurant is very nice. Staff was attentive and efficient but not all that friendly. Overpriced for what it is in the winter. Advice - wait for their patio in the summer.

We had reserved for 6:15 and came half hr early! Room was quite empty but were told we had to sit at a specific table out on the isle (by kitchen) which was very noisy and everyone passed by us. Asked him, but the waiter said the same. A few minutes later I watched a couple refuse their table beside us and get seated elsewhere! So we asked the hostess to also move us and were moved to the back away from racket, very grateful ... but noise is an issue in this venue! Would consider this a negative if returning. Too bad because patio, avocado toast, wagu steak and salad were so amazing.

This has been one of my favourite restaurants for the last few years as I attend Granville Island Stage as a season ticket holder. I am Celiac and love the gluten free/friendly options. However the menu and portion size has become more confusing and prices increase seemingly everytime we go. But the food has always been excellent until this last visit. I ordered a side grilled filet of salmon and was served a small thin tail end that was very over cooked in one part and cold and undercooked in the other (my guess is that it was frozen when it hit the pan). I would never serve the tail tip to a guest and certainly do not expect it in a restaurant, but to not cook it properly is unforgiveable. I did comment to my server but the manager did not do me the courtesy of coming over to apologize. And I was unwell for 48 hours so I am afraid Edible will get a miss for the rest of the theatre season.

I had wanted to go for a while and was finally able to go to celebrate my sister's birthday! I loved that they stayed on theme and true to the PNW and the ingredients that are local to the area. But I felt that the food was a little bland which didn't make it entirely worth the price of the bill. Excellent concept/presentation but some items just tasted like nothing, which was unfortunate.

A friend and I were going to the Granville Island theatre and I saw the restaurant online. We were really impressed -location couldn’t have been better for us. Decor is quite casual (fine), our server was beyond great. We asked for her input when ordering and we were so happy with our wine and our meals. Thank you! We’ll both be back.

The avocado toast was burnt. Every meal served to our table was served on plates with large chips and cracks along the edge. Broken plates are aesthetically offensive, but more importantly not food safe and pose a safety risk to diners. Totally unacceptable in a restaurant that has such an interesting menu.
The server was excellent.
