Excellent food, service and atmosphere!!
Ambiance and staff as well as the overall look of the L’Abattoir was awesome. The staff were very professional and personable.
Ordered a Adieu Mon Amour cocktail which was very very delicious. Not usually a huge fan of whiskey but this drink changed my mind ;)
As for the food, ordered the quail eggs which tasted yummy but not as good as I expected, admittedly.
The sauce was very delicious, but the meal itself was slighlty underwelhming for the price.
Came with three other friends who also very much enjoyed their drinks and loved their food.
So, overall a lovely experience but the taste of the food isn’t really worth the price attached.
Excellent Food and Ambience, a rare find. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing food and service
Had a wonderful evening with friends from out of town. Everything was great!
We will be back! An amazing experience! An amazing wine list. Food so good! Stretchy pants would have been nice!
An amazing fine dining experience. Top notch. We were here for a birthday dinner and enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Very attentive service, particularly with wine selection. Food was done perfectly, and presented impeccably. Only downside was the close proximity of the tables.
One of the best places I've eaten.
Amazing atmosphere, food. The cocktails are unique. Especially the ones without alcohol!!! Best ever
Loved the pastries, service was great, a bit on the pricy side, but was definitely worth it.
Wasn’t that great, service was not good at all,...
The food was very good and beautifully presented but not very creative in terms of the flavour. Cocktails are excellent! So wS the service
Food is amazing, it's difficult to maintain a high level of service and quality over time and everytime I go I am not disappointed.
Great food, but pricey. Found the food wasn't worth the price tag. For two entrees, two drinks, and an Appy, it cost $165 before tip
Top notch as always.
We had an outstanding dining experience at L'Abattoir last week. The food, the wine and the environment was outstanding. I had the duck and it was one of the best duck dishes I ever had. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who really enjoys very unique dishes and great wine.
The food was very well done, service was slow. I’d say the menu was slightly overpriced.
Excellent overall experience! High quality food and wines. Efficient service in a beautiful setting.
We had such a great time - ended up staying for 6 hours!! The service was outstanding as well - thank you!!!
We had a wonderful night and we will certainly visit again. The Burke boys don’t do any restaurant we this one!
Great food, great wine selection and staff was very pleasant.
Best bread basket ever! Sweetbreads and foie gras was like eating butter-wonderful.
We had the smoked salmon tartine which was absolutely delicious though the toasted baguette it sat on, was impossible to cut through (very chewy). Our Mauritius server was lovely (and very courteous/patient with our lengthy 2 1/2 hour brunch). Con: Tables are too close together - I'm only 130 lbs but had to squeeze in sideways between tables to get to the banquette and as such we could hear everyones conversation around us (and them, ours!) The value for the food and service is on point - and while I realize packing in tables means more revenue, the room could lose a table along the banquette wall simply for breathing room. Not sure I would go back for brunch for that reason. (This is my second visit - the first for dinner and cocktails during morelle mushroom season which was very memorable)
It was absolutely delicious. We were impressed, and we’ll be back
Great food and great wine. Excellent service. Amazing as always!
Absolutely outstanding! Every single morsel was like heaven. Couldn't recommend it enough. Great service, excellent sommelier.
The food, service and ambiance were all excellent. I would definitely recommend trying this awesome restaurant!!
Not too many choices on the menu, but all dishes ordered were top quality and scrumptious! Even the bread that came prior to our meal was exceptional! Service was great, servers didn’t push or felt let down when we didn’t order alcohol. Portion was smaller, but the taste made up for the quantity!
Most dishes were delicious! Drinks were okay, had a new server every time something came to our table and the courses were way too far apart. Fancy crowd too! Overall not so bad but would not return or reccomend to friends/family
I would recommend probably not to put customers to sit close to the bathroom if there's a lot of other seats around. It will the last choice. Overall, good service and good food.
Was very pleased with the service, the food was surprisingly outstanding! Definitely recommend.
Cute comfortable and great service. All employees are very friendly and food was beyond excellent. Playing of fishes were spectacular and from appie to desert every plate was mouth watering and beautiful. Didn’t leave hungry and left very happy! Thank you 🙏
Great service, great food! We've been there for brunch and for dinner and had an amazing experience in both occasions :)
Outstanding French, artisan crafted fresh food from the beginning to the end
Hadn't been here for dinner for quite a while (brunch only) and happily they delivered big time for an anniversary. I hadn't really enjoyed the last dinner there, found it fussy and unsatisfying, so went for a couple of starters while my wife chose a cold starter and full main course. My foie gras was, well, foie gras, what can you say, delicious and nicely presented with brioche toasts, and enough to share. My wife had the tomato with smoked buffalo curd, everything perfect, from the seasoning of the fresh tomatoes to the crunchy contrast of the rissole themselves. It was fresh, simple, and sophisticated at the same time.
I then had the baked oysters with garlic butter and truffle, five oysters, one bite each and superb. Shared one with my wife and wish I hadn't . . . Her main was the Ling Cod with caramelized buttermilk and mussels. Outstanding. It was such a pleasure to experience great cooking, start to finish, imaginative and beautifully executed. Wanted to take the breadbasket home, and our server (I'm sorry, don't remember her name) was on point with wine recommendations. We'll be back soon.
From arrival to the end of our evening, everything was delightful; welcoming, friendly and attentive staff and delicious, creative, fresh food. Definitely a standout for us and we will surely return when we’re in Vancouver again.
Overall great experience at the restaurant. Service was outstanding and very helpful. It was our first time there and the waitress suggested great items without being pushy. Ambiance was fitting for a date or one on one conversation. Would definitely go again on a special occasion
Wonderful as always. Ask for Angela as your server, and then let her dictate what you eat! Magic!
My husband and I recently enjoyed an anniversary brunch here. Its a beautiful space. He had the Breakfast Burger (quite good but burger was a little too pink) and my Poached Eggs with Canadian Bacon (basically a bacon bene) was delicious with the sabayon sauce; but the dish could really use some potatoes on the side to fill it out. We indulged in some breakfast cocktails; the Orange is the New Black and the Moonwalk were both outstanding.
