Excellent food, chic ambience and attentive service!
We go to L'Abattoir pretty much every time we go to Vancouver. The food is always excellent and inventive. The cocktails are fun and well made. We will return the next time we go to Vancouver.
Had a wonderful dinner with a group of friends. The food was fresh and delightfully prepared and presented.
The service wasn't as good as I thought it would be considering the pricing. Our server wasn't very friendly and welcoming - seemed bored. The toast for my sweetbreads was burnt but replaced fairly quickly. All the other food was very good. The sommelier did a very good job and provided very good customer service. The special occasion was not acknowledged which I thought was odd. Why was that question asked when the reservation was made?
Very disappointed that the food was not served hot and was over priced. We were there as a result of a strong recommendation from a family member to celebrate our anniversary. I can truly say that this was the worst experience we have had on our special day.
The oysters are amazing, but the seating was way too cramped. People next to us knocked over our bread bowl as they were trying to get to their seats.
Disappointed as we heard and read great things about this restaurant so our expectations were high. Service was outstanding. Limited menu and choices unexciting. Baked oysters the highlight. Duck, salad, and halibut ok. Duck would have been better if I didn’t find a hair in my egg roll. Really impacted my whole dinner.
Brunch is amazing
Fantastic meal combined with a fantistic atmosphere. A true must-go restaurant
Excellent Service. Broccoli risotto was a highlight
Very tasty and good service. Small portions. Especially the very small glass of wine for a mere $14. Ouch!
Good was wonderful ; very good service. But so noisy we had a hard time hearing each other.
Friendly wait staff knowledgeable but wish chef served a fresh veg with king cod to break heavy flavour of cod
Great meal overall, food excellent, very good service and reasonable for Vancouver!
Wonderful place with great good and excellent baked goods. I had the donut filled with lemon cream and covered with chocolate, something to die for!
I had to refuse a poor table option as better options were available. Appetizer and main (oysters and pork cheek) just ok. Would not return with all the other restaurant in Vancouver.
The food is outstanding but for my appetite the portions are too small for the price charged. On our last visit we were served by Angela and it needs to be stated that she exceeded the excellent service that we have become accustomed to at L’abattoir. The ambience is pleasing but would be improved with a little more space; there are too many tiny tables crammed together so you are sitting nearly shoulder to shoulder with the neighboring diners.
Doesn’t seem to have the wow factor it used to have a few years ago. Not in a rush to go back
Extraordinary food, creatively prepared with local ingredients. The service was outstanding - knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly staff. I brought friends from NYC here and they were mighty impressed. Well done!
Came with my spouse for our anniversary. It was our first time and we were thrilled by every element. At first we were a bit confused by the menu item descriptions, or shall I say lack of descriptions, but our server thoughtfully answered our questions and guided us through the menu.
It was a beautiful 4-course meal shared at a reasonable price.
Can’t wait to celebrate here again.
Very good food, service and wine list but I was surprised there were only two non-seafood entrees on the menu. After all, the restaurant is named after a slaughterhouse.
Excellent preparation and presentation of food. Delicious and beautiful food. Lovely bread basket. Dessert a little bland for selection - olive oil cake, pavlova with citrus and camomile. Summer menu starts June 1 with new selection of desserts.
I have entertained clients here several times and I have never been disappointed my any aspect of the experience. The wine list is extensive. The food is always amazing. The staff are attentive but never make you feel rushed. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to showcase Vancouver’s world class cuisine at its finest!
Donuts are amazing and big! Coffee was very good, but no cream or sugar provided... had to ask twice. (Got up to get it ourselves from the refill station the first time).
Salads are a bit overpriced.
Was here in December for a friends birthday brunch and was really impressed... free samples of mimosas, great food and service. Unfortunately I was hoping for an even better experience for Mother's Day brunch, but it didn't feel special at all.
Tables too close together in the back. I felt like I couldn’t talk to my date. I felt like the couple beside us was imposing on us, and us on them. Food was beautiful and interesting but kinda tasteless. Everything tasted bland that was surprising given the dish description. Lacking spices and differentiation.
Always awesome! Love this spot.
Excellent food, attentive service with helpful suggestions around the choices.
The food was really good! Service was attentive. Was too noisy for an intimate birthday dinner.
Delicious food, impeccable service, very nice settings (especially the bar)
Fantastic food in a beautiful setting
Wonderful service and amazing food, as usual. The brunch menu is simple, is not overcomplicated in flavours (exercises restraint) and executed to a high standard. L’Abbatoir, doing what they do best.
L’Abbatoir is one of our favourite restaurants in the city and they didn’t disappoint this morning. Our out of town guests loved the food, and we were not rushed by our server at all, so we had a great chance to catch up with friends.
Incredible. One of the best meals I've had in a while.
Not too impressed as the scramble egg of my Full Breakfast was too salty that I need to change. Cutlery, decor and service were ordinary, no surprise.
Is my second at this restaurant and i recommend this restaurant at all people the food is very Good the server To and all is very great
Second time there when visiting Vancouver. The menu is not huge but the options are great with fantastic flavor combinations. Intricate dishes are fresh and perfectly executed. Great wine list, the servers know their dishes and are attentive but not hovering. It’s a tad crowded but not horribly so and the noise can be a bit loud but next time we are in Vancouver we will be back.
We could eat a very good dish. I thought I'd like to try it more. I became very full.
Fabulous meal, good wine selection, great service. Music as a little too rap related for our taste and not really in place in the atmosphere of the restaurant, in my opinion.
All in all a great evening.
I was there with my son for his birthday. We were both impressed with the quality of the food, cocktails and service. Our server made lovely recommendations for wine pair with our meals. My son was still raving about the lamb the next day!
It was just ok. Heard great things about the place but didn’t live up to them.
We loved our whole night at L'abattoir! We went for our anniversary and had three courses each. I enjoyed the duck a la orange (or their special version!) and my hubby had pork cheeks with local spot prawns. We had a glass of wine paired with each course, and some special cocktails to start. My cocktail "Adieu mon coeur" was delightful. The service was warm and impeccable. Highly recommend.
