Impeccable service and food. Our server was warm and attentive. He also anticipated our needs. I would highly recommend the lobster tail and the seared scallops.
Took my partner there for a romantic dinner and was blown away with exceptional service, incredible food and amazing craft cocktails. Will definitely dine there again and highly recommend this amazing restaurant.
The food was good, except for the portions were incredibly small for breakfast. $17 for a tiny eggs Bennie with a couple chunks of pork belly is a huge rip off.
The service wasn’t great either, we had 3 different people serving us at different times. Ordered and paid for a full pot of coffee, but was given a cup and not refilled.
Service wasn’t great as the staff look flustered. Will not return for breakfast, dinner is much better.
Great meal, great experience..... attention to detail here is very evident
Loved the ambience of the place and friendly services. Great foie gras and great wine / cocktail list. Highly recommend.
They took great care in preparation of our food. It was all done perfectly
Very friendly staff, and the lobster tail was to die for
Service was great. Food delicious and beautifully-presented. Fun vibe with outlook overlooking street or you could dine more in private at the back.
It was amazing, but the ling cod was a little bit salty.
The service was prompt, attentive but not intrusive, and the food was delicious. The Pacific Oysters were amazing as was the Steak Diane.
the restaurant has a nice vibe, amazing food, beautiful lights and a perfect service . I would recommend it to anybody
Loved it. Amazing as ever j have never had a bad meal here. The scallops and the lamb were perfection. We can't wait to return.
We had some friends in from Seattle that wanted brunch and we brought them to L'Abattoir. Our experience was excellent. A big thank you to all the staff. Mya, Spencer, Morgan and Craig for making our meal memorable.
It has been a few years since we were last here and it is as good as I remember. Fantastic food, excellent service, great room. We will be back again.
We celebrated our anniversary here and were blown away by the overall experience. The food was fantastic, the ambience was gorgeous and the staff went out of their way to make us feel special. Would highly recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to go back.
Great food and place!
Great place for brunch and great place overall
poor food. things is not very good for the starters. and very expensive for two people that cost almost 200 cad
my 2nd team meeting friends here, like it!
best food, best service, highly recommended 👍
Our best meal in a short stay in Vancouver. We had: Baked Pacific oysters (best version of baked oysters ever--my wife who does not like oysters raved about them), Grilled lobster tail (cooked perfectly, accompanied by celeriac agnolotti which was an integral and brilliant part of the dish), Steak Diane (steak cooked perfectly), and glazed duck (it's rare and tender, as opposed to medium and tough). Good wine, well priced as was the menu. Unlike several other highly-rated restaurants, this chef is into good flavors and not novelty for the sake of novelty. (Know who I mean?) No, I don't work at L'Abbatoir--I'm just a visitor who spent a week eating in Canada, and this was outstanding.
I have been to this restaurant at least half a dozen times and it has always been excellent! Unfortunately my most recent visits was not. I ordered the dujck and it was grossly under cooked and did not taste very good at all. I’m off tonight perhaps?
Really cool vibe. Great food, but quite expensive. Especially given that there are many other restaurants with the same caliber that are more reasonably priced. Would go back for a special occasion.
Every appetizers were all amazing (tartar and tuna crudo)
Entrees were way beyond expectations (lamb, duck, steak and scallops).
Deserts were fantastic (earl grey custard, passion fruit ganache)
Wine list was extensive.
One of our best nights dining ever in Vancouver.
food is reliably good & good value for the money so I take friends, family, & clients there for brunch
Great overall meal + experience. A little chaotic at door to get seated but waitress was great. All the food was excellent except the breakfast burger... remembered it as an amazing dish but yesterday the bun to meat ratio was way too high + the meat was over cooked...
Amazing service. Best food and wine ever!
We had a wonderful time and dinner, Thank you! Food and beer were great
My husband and I eat here every time we visit Vancouver. The cocktails are creative and so yummy (last night, the avocado gimlet did not disappoint), and the food is consistently delicious. Between the two of us, we’ve now gone through the whole menu, I think. The warm oysters are to die for! The salmon, scallops, and lamb are our favorite entrees.
We thought the food was overpriced for everyday dining. It may be better suited for people looking to have a wine and dine experience.
From the start it was a great experience; we were seated quickly and attended pleasantly. Our server was Natalie and she was really helpful. Nick who is the sommelier, manager jack of all trades was amazing. This is an excellent choice amongst really good restaurants in Vancouver!
Outstanding start to finish . Craft cocktails were fabulous . Love Avocado Gimlet! Favorite item if the night was the foigras. But everything was outstanding!! Great oysters , outstanding scallops. I was equally impressed with the staff; they timed our food perfectly. In addition they didn’t give you that “in a hurry” attitude . Highly recommend this place!
The food and cocktails were amazing at L'Abbatoir. Service was a little meh. Kind of the too cool for school vibe, thus the four stars. Glad we got a table in the back along the alley (quieter) where we watched ghost tours walk back and forth. I had the Bitters and Smoke cocktail: Mezcal, Reposado tequila, sweet vermouth, Cynar, Fernet Branca. Mmm….. For dinner we started with the Tuna Crudo and the Foie Gras. Both were delicious and generous. We both got the Steak Diane. I was hesitant, as some reviewers had panned it. I suppose if your idea of a steak is the 16oz cowboy steak at Outback, you might be disappointed, but I’m glad we ordered it. It was an amazing, flavorful piece of meat, (not a traditional flambe' Steak Diane presentation) and the small potatoes cooked in tallow, marrow and onion...were an umami revelation. We’ll definitely go back the next chance we have.
Me and my date had an amazing evening. The ambiance, food, and service were all exceptional. We really appreciated how knowledgeable and friendly that staff were and knew how to make the night special. We had 3 appetizer dishes and shared one main, but it felt like 3-course dinner with our tables and cutlery getting cleared out and replaced with every dish. The evening felt seamless and were able to focus on the company. The food was also amazing. I expected the dishes to be quite rich, but was impressed that it was just right. The steak was cooked perfectly and was so tender that you could have probably cut it with a butter knife. I'd definitely go back!
Our Third visit and each time has been amazing!
Great food and good local wine choices.
Will go every time I’m in Vancouver
Food and wine were both great. Noise was an unavoidable issue in a space like this--loud enough to notice, but not so loud that it derailed the evening. My biggest complaint was that the staff seemed disinterested and inattentive, despite the dining room only being about 1/3 full.
Creative menu using high quality ingredients. Tuna crudo and market fresh salad were both outstanding. The cod and honey roasted duck were both excellent. They were cooked perfectly and the sauces were wonderful accompaniments to the fish and duck. Service was attentive and helpful, but never intrusive. Ambience was very nice—-easy to have a conversation with your dinner partner, but busy enough to allow for some people and food watching. A very nice dining experience that we will repeat the next time we are in Vancouver.
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
