Seafood
Oddfish is a Seafood and Vegetable focused restaurant. Ethically sourced and high quality ingredients are what you will find here with the focus being on the food - not the fuss. In regard to the wine list - approachable and interesting with a great price point is our goal. The atmosphere is casual and fun. We are a neighbourhood restaurant that others from outside the neighbourhood come to for that welcoming atmosphere. We are the same people who created Nook and Tavola restaurants.

    Outstanding attentive service, tasty novel menu items. Ate outside and noise level okay, inside would have been challenging to hear. Portions are small a little pricey.

    We were warmly greeted and led to a great corner banquette table, away from the busiest part of the restaurant but with good views of the hustle and bustle of activity. Excellent service from our waiter Aaron and all waitstaff, who were prompt, courteous and answered our questions clearly. Wonderful menu, extensive (if pricey) wine list—we ordered by the glass and loved how our choices suited the various dishes. Imaginative plates but not fussy, featuring local ingredients. Had oysters two ways, raw and grilled, prawn/avocado salad, kanpachi (a fish new to us) served as a crudo, seared scallops with apricot mostarda on cauliflower puree, potato wrapped halibut, beet salad, and great sourdough bread. Was particularly happy to find amari/digestivi on their dessert wine list. All in all an exceptional dining experience!

    What a fun, energetic place! The patio and indoor seating were full. Seemed a good combo of neighbours and date night crowd. The oysters were as advertised and our mains were outstanding. I had the potato wrapped halibut - very tasty and the crispy potato added texture and flavour. Our waiter appeared by magic whenever our glasses needed filling. He was very busy but did not act frantic, and had time to answer questions about the menu. This could be our neighbourhood hangout… :)

    Everything was absolutely delicious however the pasta was very undercooked to the point that we could barely eat it. Have had it before but this time it was disappointing.

    For Vancouver a very good option. Some wow dishes like Tuna Tostada and corn karaage. Tuna poke not great value. Halibut was slightly overcooked. Very good, solid drinks and wine options. All in all, a very good option.

    We are visiting Vancouver for just a few days and wanted some fresh/local/non-mainstream seafood. The food we had was just breathtakingly fresh, tender and amazing. The fact that the menu changed so frequently was a good sign for me. We had the crudo tasting (feature of the day) and it was some of the best seafood I’ve ever had. Highly recommend this place, worth the Uber!

    Food was fantastic, and the menu left us wanting to come back to try everything else. Alot of restaurants could run you up a bill and end up leaving unsatisfied for the price, however while this isnt cheap, I was very happy paying what I paid.

    I ordered the mussels, which were good, but the broth was too spicy. I was disappointed as I had asked the waiter about this before I ordered. Also, it was too noisy!
