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.

I've been to this restaurant many times now and it has never disappointed! Whether it's been just myself and my partner for a date night or a larger group of company from out of town. The food, drinks, atmosphere, and service is always amazing. Everyone is so kind and knowledgeable. The menu is always changing with what's fresh, which is great because you get the feel of going somewhere new each time, all while knowing you're always going to have a quality meal that falls into the Oddfish calibre and feel. I also love that it is a come-as-you-are type place. You can dress up or dress more casual, it's really up to you and how you're feeling. I've been in heels one night and then straight off a hike the next. You'll never feel out of place and the restaurant and its staff are always so warm and welcoming. 10/10 would recommend :)

Our server was very knowledgeable Andy gave great recommendations. Food was really fresh, but the drinks my friend and I had (a peach lemonade and ginger lemonade) isn’t something I’d order again.

Interesting food, very creative. A lot of the same sauces/toppings used on the various dishes. Very good service, knowledgeable wait staff. A little pricey but fine for Vancouver.

As usual, Oddfish was excellent. The trout is a perennial favourite. Burrata and asparagus was a nice, simple starter and the crab pasta with chilies and roasted tomato was great. Service was prompt and friendly.
Don’t know why Odddish doesn’t get more attention. It’s one of our favourite restaurants in Vancouver. But I’m happy that we’re still able to get a table without too long of a line.

My wife loves Oddfish, I am medium on it. The staff is awesome, the food is ok but not really much to write home about - especially 35 dollar pasta special (pasta should never be 35 bucks)

The menu looked good but it turned out to be another restaurant with average food and ridiculously high prices. I don’t mind paying a premium for good food, however, the taste has to match the price tag.

Great service -just like Nook. Good food. Way over-priced. $10 for fries; $15 for carrots, $20 for tiny ceviche.

Service was great, attentive host and server. Ordered the grilled branzino and not what I expected, first of all it did not taste grilled compared to others restaurants that have this dish. Secondly, had too much sauce on the fish. Thirdly, for $45 it was definitely not value for money. We also had the fries and beet salad which were alright in taste and pricing.

Fish and vegetables are all VERY fresh. Sauces are flavourful and nicely seasoned. Staff are all very friendly, happy to make recommendations, and work efficiently together. Manager is very welcoming (and we couldn’t help noticing that he’s not above clearing dishes and cleaning tables when it’s busy, not something we see managers do often). Small but smart wine list. We didn’t have cocktails but lots of customers did, and they all seemed pretty pleased with their drinks. A bit noisy when the room full, mostly hard surfaces so sounds are reflected. Great vibe in this restaurant. Love coming here!

Nice visit...the trout was the best fish dish we've had for a very long time, the green salad we had was excellent and we thought the clams were a very nice serving size. The roasted cauliflower, while well cooked, filling and tasty, seemed to clash (flavorwise) with all the other dishes.


Service was okay but had a few bumps. Part of our order was served to a different table so we had an extra wait. Otherwise, service was pretty good.


We'd definitely recommend to others

Great fun as we came into a happy, busy restraunt. Service was good, mussels and a serving of chips to share as suggested were excellent. Decided to share the Octopus. Bad choice, think you should rethink that dish, very little overdone octopus, plus sauce etc. Very poor value. Was surprised and pleased that that dish price was taken off our bill.
Will love to try again and be more adventuresome re some choices. All in all good fun., a bit too loud, but seems all places are like that now.Thanks JW

We love the restaurant, the servers and the food. We do find it very loud and the last 3 times we went with other couples everyone commented it was not a great place to have easy conversation. To the point that we will likely only go when it is just the two os us.
A few sound absorbing panels would allow for good energy but the ability to have great conversations.
