Fantastic menu. Interesting combinations, executed beautifully. Great cocktails and extensive sake list as well.
Very good food. Lovely service. They easily accommodated my friend who is pescatarian on the set menu for Valentines. It could have been a total disaster as the set menu had a couple meat options. But they took it in stride and made us some lovely alternates.
The chicken was great !
Exceptional fusion cuisine, a superb waitstaff and a great bar. What more do you need?
Great service and amazing food and drinks. Still one of my favourite restaurants in the city.
Went for Dine Out and the food was amazing! Service was also very high standard, I would definitely go back!
Creative food in a fun, young atmosphere. Would recommend.
The service was spectacular. The food didn’t meet my expectations probably due to dine out format. I would love to revisit after dine out is over.
I've wanted to try this restaurant for a long while. DineOut provided the opportunity. I was floored by the 7-course meal for $45. It was a great intro to their cuisine. We didn't know what to say when the server asked us our favorite dish. They were all great. Friendly service too.
Nice ambiance, average service, and okay food. Sometimes the servers took our plate before asking if we were done (there was still food on the plate...). The food was weird. The steak was so chewy we couldn't eat it, and the portions were small. Maybe it's just because we visited during Dine Out Van, but I wouldn't revisit based on this experience.
The server was incredible and accommodated all of our dietary needs. The level of effort and artistry that the serving staff execute their job is truly exceptional.
Area is not the best, but food was great! Staff very flexible with the menu items. Didn't care for the dessert, but the main courses were excellent.
A nice evening with friends. I was just a little underwhelmed by the food.
Great dine out experience!
We just loved it!
I’ve been meaning to eat at this restaurant for almost a year because of all the things I heard about it. Finally got around to it for DineOut Vancouver and was absolutely disappointed with my experience. The service was amazing and loved the place but the food lacked a lot of flavour, portions were small, and was very bland. It might have just been the dine out menu but it was a bust, definitely not worth the DineOut price. Best thing I had there was the server recommended red wine. I will try to come back and have their regular menu but it might take another year for the bad memories to fade.
I was really disappointed! Everything on dine out menu sucks, the Osaka pancake thing..... are you kidding me, I think the one I cooked at home would be much better than the one in the restaurant....ordered a foie rice bowl separately, tasted much better than other dine out dishes, but still not that good...the rice was cold and tough..service is standard but very push, like both my friend and I had the feeling of rushing by the waitress to pay and to leave.............definitely not recommend and do not want to go back again......
Went for dineout and was pleasantly surprised by the unique food pairings that were both visually pleasing and delicious. The oyster shots are a MUST have, definitely taking my girlfriends back there just for that. The mushroom plate with truffle is pricey but sooooo worth it!!!
Dinner for two on a Saturday night for Dine Out. The experience was good, not great.
Table service - our server and all the food runners were helpful and knowledgeable. Great wine pairing suggestions. Room is fun, lighting is great.
The not so good:
Had to wait 25 minutes for our 9:00 reservation, with very little communication from the host about our table. I really wanted to love the food, but found it to be a bit lacklustre. Even after adjusting our expectations because it was Dine Out, presentation of most plates left something to be desired and the taste was just okay. We didn’t eat the fish plate at all after the first bites.
Overall, I would go back to sit at the bar for a cocktail or glass of wine, but I wouldn’t dine again.
It was a delicious meal! The mushrooms and cauliflower was outstanding! However, the portion sizes were very small for the prices. My friend and I ordered 2 appetizers and 2 entrees and shared all dishes, and still felt hungry afterwards. I recommend coming here when you have a semi-full stomach.
Amazing Prix Fixe, super attentive/fun and relaxed waiter, awesome wine/sake pairing - all on a crowded NYE. Highly recommend!
Creative, delicious food, wonderful drinks and superior service! The cauliflower will take your breath away, and the mushrooms will bring you to tears. Wish we’d tried the tasting menu- next time!
Delicious! Service was impeccable!
The fact they don't offer coffee or tea (only hot water) is borderline criminal.
Everything was wonderful from service to wine to food.
The mushrooms are tasty.
Michelin Star worthy!
We did the tasting menu with the wine pairing. The food was fantastic and getting all of the info from the server with every course was very interesting. Great variety and beautiful flavours.
Best old fashioned drinks at a very good happy hour price!
Really very delicious food! I don't know how they made mushrooms and cauliflower taste SO GOOD. All the dishes we had were very tasty, but I'd only come for a special occasion as it is a bit pricey particularly as the portions are rather small. The restaurant has a nice casual feel to it with dim lighting and was pretty quiet. The service was nice and attentive as well.
Service was really slow and subpar, it seemed like our server was forgetting to enter items as other tables who were seated later got served food sooner. He was also slow to bring a glass of red wine to go with the foie gras bowl (which I highly recommend ordering!) so that I had almost finished the course by the time the wine arrived. The food was mostly very good although I found the hamachi disappointing. Cocktails were great, as was wine selection, both B.C. and international. It was a mixed experience and I’m unsure whether we’ll go back.
WoW .. must visit if you’re in Vancouver .. special mention to our waiter Ryan .. superb customer service
We chose Pidgins to treat our adult son for his birthday dinner. We were a party of three and we picked the prix fixe menu. We were served 11 courses. Each course was very interesting and tasty. The staff was friendly and answered all our questions patiently. We felt welcomed and comfortable in the casual atmosphere. We would recommend this restaurant to our friends.
Delicious food with a modern and asian twist. Nice service with an extensive drink list.
The mushroom salad wowed. The rest - the rice bowls were ok but not on the yum yum nth chart- the special, the sable fish, had elegance in preparation and simplicity - deserts no great shakes - service, hip but not ultra aware. Would order differently next time...and there will be a next time
I cannot understate how incredible the food was here. Everything from the Cauliflower to the Foie Gras rice bowl was truly mindblowing and vasly exceeded our expectations.
It was my friend and I’s last meal in Vancouver before we flew back Toronto. We had a wonderful meal here. Everything we ordered was equally unique and delicious. Our cocktails were also a great compliment to our meal. Our server, Alex, was very informative, patient, and provided great hospitality. We will definitely be back whenever we visit Vancouver again!
Perfect balance of French and Korean cuisine
This is what modern restaurant in 2018 should be: unpretentious setting, great and friendly service and crazy good creative Michelin star worthy food. Go, oh please go, you will love it!
Our waiter, Ryan was fabulous! Food was fantastic and the drinks were delicious 😋
