We looked at the Prix Fixe menu and drooled. It looked like a good deal......and it certainly was. The sweet onion soup was delicious, the beet salad (hubby) and my charcuterie platter were yummy and huge proportions. I had the pasta spiro something or other....dead on texture and nice heat and hubby’s mushroom risotto was creamy and perfectly done. I ended with the cheese platter but stole a lot of OM’s pavlova. With a half carafe of Lopèz rioja our anniversary dinner was just over $100.00. We love this neighbourhood eatery and the new prix fixe menu is a hit with us.

This was our third of fourth visit to The Salted Vine. Our second time bringing friends. Every meal has been outstanding. The service is very friendly and now familiar :) The food is wonderfully fresh and inventive. This visit my three companions all had the ling cod in broth and were quite happy. It isn't often that one can find ling on a menu. I had the beef with chimichura and loved it. The sauce was so delicious and garlicky I asked for extra, which they kindly obliged.
My only suggestion would be that the lights could be slightly lower for the ambiance.

Most of the dishes we ordered were very tasty except one, which was a bit disappointing. The cheese souffle was unique and enjoyable, which led us to order the risotto ball appetizer since the server said it was their most popular dish. This was unfortunately a bit boring for us. The duck and beef mains were nicely presented and so flavorful, they bordered on being too flavorful! The service was average, friendly but not always attentive as we had to keep asking for water refills even though the restaurant wasn't that busy. The wine selection was small and for a nicer restaurant, having more thoughtfulness in suggested pairings would have been nice. Overall, the food was good but the experience was nothing out of the ordinary.

We were there for the happy hour, the food was very tasty and good value from a portion & price. We had the chicken wings, oyster, meat board and the olives. Great discovery and looking forward to coming back for dinner.

Took my adult children and their partners for dinner and had the greatest time. Platters made for sharing of the most delicious restaurant food around. Excellent wine list and hospitable owner and staff. A little expensive with my hungry family, but excellent 5 star experience with NO regrets. I'd sure recommend this.

Overpriced and underwhelming. Perhaps it’s necause I am spoiled by the quality and value of food that I eat in Vancouver but I would not return. Menu was unimaginative and felt like it was 10 years behind. There was no personality in the food or in the staff.

The space is crowded with very little noise absorption; the music goes from jazz to rock; the tables are way toooo small for a shared plate restaurant and are packed in a very tiny space, not like a quaint French bistro style, but more like we need jam as many people as we can in a small space; food and service is excellent for the most part; if you’re looking for an evening out with friends over fine dinning, look elsewhere; not intimate enough to have a decent conversation as it’s too loud even with the restaurant not being full; I don’t mind paying the prices in the menu but the overall experience was so not worth the price.

Coming from a scenic drive, we visit your restaurant for the second time.
It's nice to wind down, relax and eat good food.
However my first impression was better, especially was I disappointed from the the Pork Belly.
On my first visit I was very impressed with this dish and was looking forward to this. The meat should have been hot and a bit crispy, instead of serving it just warm.
My suggestion; consider serving some small fresh bread slices & butter at dinner time before the meal arrives. (without charge) Most restaurants do this.

There are nice options—but nothing much for children — but we found it a bit unnecessarily snooty. Small portions. Barley risotto was a bit blah. The cod was really nice but one could imagine a bit more generosity with the sides. The fries with the Parmesan and rosemary were EXCELLENT. Pricey, overall. I don’t think we will go back.

We heard this was a great restaurant and finally had a chance to try it out on the way to whistler. Parked right outside and since we were early were seated straight away. We had a starter and 2 mains a veggie side and dessert. All were perfectly presented and delicious. I would highly recommend and go back for sure , great way to miss the rush of whistler and get better food at a more reasonable price.
