My 3rd time there as I like the food , the duck is amazing , so are the sweet breads and foie gras.
I had to ask 3 times for bread and preferred to bother the other servers as my server was Super rude and even my guest I was with noticed that.
Service was great. Felt like we were a bit rushed to get out of there.
Restaurants should advise when a pre-booked table is not in main room and stuck in overflow conservatory area. Very poor.
The BEST meal of my life!
Pretentious attitude that the food simply did not back up. Crab tasted like it came out of a can. Lobster was no better. Steak was Diane was ok but no where near living up to the hype. Extremely disappointing.
A great find, friendly service upmarket dining , we had brunch presentation great and cooked beautifully, had bubbles too always a good start to the day
Saturday branch. The food is amazing. Both pastries and entree taste great！
We booked this restaurant for our wedding anniversary, but I have to say the overall experience was just so-so - nothing special at all.
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at L'Abattoir. It is unfortunate that we didn't live up to your expectations on this particular evening. If you would like to provide any further information on how your dinner went, do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, Spencer Food & Beverage Coordinator
Food is good in general, but not everything. Bread basket heated and greasy, definitely not fresh. Green salad had wilted leaves. Hamachi appetizer tasted good and fresh. The slow cooked halibut was greatly balanced and cooked right. The Paris Brest tasted good but was not fresh, the Mille feuille (which was pronounced “myle file” by my waiter :))) was too hard and over cooked. Waiters dressed very inelegantly and, our waiter shifted along like a hobo and kept bumping me when serving the table next to us, quite hard sometimes, he did not write anything down and surely enough repeated the order wrong. Place has low ceiling and extremely noisy. I was surprised to see at such a place at dinner a family of 6 with 3 infants (1 yr, 6month and a newborn) with milk feeding bottles and a mess on the table that is 20cm away from us (hence the bumping), we were a couple that they could have seated us far from this noisy table that wrecked the ambiance, but no one was using their right judgement (the further tables remained empty). Too bad, was looking forward to it, but wasn’t the best of evenings. More management attention is required to raise the bar.
First, the food. An outstanding meal last year brought us back. Mostly great, starters and dessert were very good. Unusually, my partner and I ordered the same main dish, barbecued cod. The fish was over salted and the accompanying elements (one small crab ravioli, corn/bacon elements) were scanty and not enough to accompany every piece of fish. A disappointment. That said, what was worse was the neighbouring table who were seated after we arrived. Three guests, seemingly a mother and her kids, all of whom remained on their phones for the entire meal. L'Abbatoir is a high end restaurant, both in quality and in price. They are responsible for setting an atmosphere that matches their brand, and to me that includes keeping the standard of behaviour in the restaurant at a comparable level. Others have done it (St. Lawrence), why not L'Abbatoir? This was not the only table near us who spent the evening scrolling and showing each other what they found. Distracting, annoying, unnecessary. Probably won't return just based on this experience.

Sommelier -Mia - was outstanding. Fantastic knowledge without any prétention. Wonderful all round experience.
We appreciate the positive feedback, thank you very much for sharing! Best, Spencer Food & Beverage Coordinator
Tables trop près l'une de l'autre, bruyant comme une cafétéria, serveurs en tenue négligée comme s'ils servaient des tacos, portions ridiculement petites, service lent. Pas du tout l'ambiance qu'on cherche quand on est prêt à payer 100$ par personne.

So far one of the best experience in Vancouver. Love it
All around Fabulous restaurant and not to be missed in Vancouver. The restuarant grounds are steeped in history. The restaurant itself is trendy yet laid back, and the food is absolutely on point.
I always come here for any special brunches, it’s a sure thing and I generally save it for special occasions or when I want to really impress a date.
Inventive, even eclectic, food and an interesting wine list. Excellent service by Andrew and attentive bussers as well. Overall, an excellent experience.
Very little gluten free options. No espresso machine. Small menu.
Great service and ambiance.
Probably one of the best restaurants I’ve been so far in Vancouver, great menu, presentation and flavours, nice and small dining room and great service! 😁☺️
Great innovative food in Gastown.
Especially recommend the oyster appetizers!
It was our first visit and it absolutely lived up to the hype. Beautiful complexity of flavour, very lovely staff, gorgeous room.
Hi Tina, We are glad to hear that we met, and hopefully exceeded, your expectations. Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience and we hope to host you again soon. Best, Spencer Food & Beverage Coordinator
My favorite! Can't wait to go back.
Birthday celebration at a long table in back. Service was excellent. Chose family style dinner to sample as much as we could. Great dinner experience, incredible cocktails and wine selection. Will definitely go back for a date night.
Staff very attentive yet discreet. Floor lead manager extremely professional and knowledgeable about wine selections.
Food was well presented and timely. Could become a regular spot for Friday/Saturday dining.
We felt special.

This restaurant is separated from the others by superb food and great service. It is not cheap but you pay for the experience.
What an amazing meal! From the moment we walked in to when we left, the staff was fantastic. Our somm, Andrew, was so incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The food was off the charts delicious - the duck was a perfect blend of all-spice, red peppercorn and acid with the vinegar reduction - a must try on their Sichuan riff. Our server, Heather, was so much fun and made our evening “Empty Glass, Empty Soul” 😂😂😂
Amazing! Everyone was so attentive and really sweet. Food was incredible.
First time there Not very crowded but waited to order
Drinks then food. Was never offered the pastry basket Got my side of homemade sausage after we had finished eating The concept of the food was good. The execution was fair No need to return
Love the food and service. Price is average in town. And it’s a nut/peanut allergy free restaurant 👍🏻
Made our occasion unforgettable and we look forward to coming next time!
The staff was warm and friendly and the food outstanding.
Thank you L'Abattoir
Good ... with overall
Overall it was a great experience, the food was good and the service was great! I would definitely go back!
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the quality of both the meals and service. To us they go hand in hand and although the price point is high, we feel that the quality for both exceeded our expectations.
We will definitely return, for future special occasions.
First time here and we tried de Brunch menu. The best pastries ever! We’ll definitely be back.
Great tasting food as always.
Food was good
Ambiance was great
I had the Beef Tartare which was definitely very good but found it to be a bit pricey.
Great selection of food - excellent service.
Very enjoyable. Friendly staff and amazing food.
