    We had a lovely night, a nice bottle of french sancerre wine, the Duck Cassoulet and the Bouillabaisse. Both were great, personaly a dash of spice in the Bouillabaisse would have made it perfect and i would have given it a 10/10 !

    Came early on a Sunday night so was not busy. Upon entry friendly greeting by host who was also our server. She was extremely nice and friendly. Food was poor quality and unfresh. Ordered the burger, escargots, french onion soup, shrimp proc. Burger was extremely dry and was basically a patty and bun, fries were not fresh and hard. I could've gotten a better burger at a fast food chain. Escargots were different than your typical French escargots as the serving was tiny without the fresh garlic butter parsley but instead some panko fry batter. French onion soup was not good as well compared to other French restaurants in the city. Overall quality of food was definitely lacking and disappointing.

    A lovely restaurant. Ambiance is charming and the cuisine is excellent. Traditional French food served with fresh ingredients and style. One sip of the bouillabaisse broth will take even the most fussy diner straight to Heaven. The rack of lamb was done to perfection. The crepes suzette is sublime. The servers are all warm and friendly.

    Food was very slow to come out (almost an hour). It also wasn’t the best (tuna was fishy). I’ve eaten there before and it was better.

    We loved the food, the amazing service by Our host but the fake plants and flowers along with the dim/dark lighting makes it suffocating. If you remove the fake flowers, add some lights, perhaps a big chandelier in the center of the lobby, would transform your restaurant to its highest potential. You have a great venue, just needs a bit TLC ❤️. I will come back regardless

    What a hidden gem! I'm amazed more people in Vancouver aren't talking about Alouette Bistro. Cocktails and Wine List are on point - very knowledgeable staff. We enjoyed escargot (served classic style in the shell), tableside beef tartare which was one of the best I've ever tried, bone marrow, foie gras terrine, and a MASSIVE rack of lamb. The only thing that could have made it better is if we had had room for more food. The room is nicely appointed, noise level is quiet/medium, and I'm amazed that it wasn't packed based on the quality of both the service and the food. We'll be back for sure. Don't sleep on this place!!

    Atmosphere is good, servers are nice and polite. Drinks were good. However, food quality and presentation is probably not one of Alouette’s strengths. Just ok.. nothing exciting and not worth the price in my opinion. Cuisine is sort of confusing. I know it’s supposed to be French, but it’s certainly not French, it’s not American.. somewhere in the middle sometimes with a debatably weird take on flavours like adding corn to fish to a level that you just taste corn - dessert on the other hand was great. Overall, I think for the same price or lower one could have much better choices in Downtown Vancouver. Will I go back? Maybe for dessert. Would I recommend it? No not really.

    My wife and I were staying in the hotel and had tickets out to a show that had been canceled so we scrambled and made reservations at the restaurant downstairs... Nice little spot... I remember a previous incarnation of a restaurant in this location, but now it's setup as an upscale French bistro... We enjoyed a round of cocktails then got into a nice bottle of Sancerre that the server recommended to accompany the rest of the meal... The steak tartare was prepared tableside and was a highlight... I also thought that the Bouillabaisse was prepared beautifully as well... While our server seemed to be working the whole restaurant, it all added up to a very nice evening and I'd definitely recommend as a surprise, last minute plan...

    Food was lacking flavors. Steak was rather dry, fries were all like little bits left from the bottom. Drinks were the only decent items, and maybe the beef tartare because of the show they present with it. No one really came to check in on us abt the food throughout the meal. Felt like there was only one server and one manager working on the whole floor. When we did voice out our feedback in the end. the manager decided to give us a ‘surprise’ which was some frozen cold dessert bites in a togo box (not even plated) after we paid the check. Bad experience overall

    First, the menu on Open Table was not the menu we were given at the restaurant. We were looking forward to having some oysters but they are no longer available. Prices have also increased. Second, though the service was good, we felt rushed through our courses. Without our asking, or providing information on our interests or appetite, the server often appeared and was a little pushy in suggesting high-priced items to move us along. Third and fourth, we ordered a bottle of the red wine that came highly recommended by the server. Unfortunately the first bottle we got was plunk. Thankfully, the bottle was quickly replaced, decanted, and served by a co-worker who, incidentally, had been eating at a nearby table. While we appreciated the obvious approval of the establishment’s food by the employee, we all agreed that was unacceptable behaviour in a restaurant selling an appetizer for $89! The tainted wine was handled adeptly, however, our impression of the restaurant was tarnished at this point. Allowing for an off night and a server anxious to leave for plans after closing, we would consider returning to Alouette the next time we are in Vancouver. TLDR: Overall, it’s a nice restaurant and the food expertly prepared by a talented chef. Too bad front of house fails in so many ways.
