    It is a lovely spot with good food and service. However we found it to be very loud and I like a good lively spot. We could hardly hear each other.

    Ordered shrimp salad on the weekend but was told it is only offered on weekedays. However manager and the kitchen made it possible for us, really happy and appreciative of the kind gesture. However waiter brought us two wrong orders and yet still charged us. In addition, he said $1-2 to substitute sour dough for baguette but charged us $8 (or$6?) at the end. No big deal but felt a bit unhappy about trying to charge extra when they shouldn't.

    Sometimes you need to step into France for a good meal and the energetic ambiance that comes with it. Tableau Bistro is that kind of break. The Kir Royale is made with real Champagne, the food is pure French Bistro, the walls are covered with photos of Paris and France, and the house wine is always a better glass than expected.

    amazing staff, and such quick service even though it was the packed. The waiter and the host were so sweet. The brunch food was so good for the price and size, I ordered the grand tableau and it was huge and everything was delicious. It’s a beautiful restaurant too, the vibe is so cool. Will definitely be back soon!

    We were there when brunch started and the restaurant was quite empty and yet they sat the two of us right next to the only other occupied table which was one person at a table for 4 who kept getting in and out of the booth seating and bumping into us. It was silly to do that seating arrangement.

    The NYE menu was a bit disappointing. The ingredients of the first course was poorly chosen as the tastes don’t match well with each other. Part of the cabbage in the sablefish dish was bitter. The wagyu was a bit too salty, a waste of the meat quality. Desserts were generally too sweet to my taste. In general, the chef needs to reconsider the design of the menu.

    Everything about our New Year’s Eve five-course meal at Tableau was phenomenal, from the warm service across everyone working there, to the amazing food and inviting decor. They even held our table so we could take a little walk before our dessert course! A not-to-be-missed experience that made our first trip to Vancouver all the more memorable.

    Overall we really enjoyed our dinner. The food and service were excellent. My main complaint was that we booked this table for NYE, but did not know Tableau was doing a set menu for the evening. There was no mention in your website when we booked the table. It felt like we were tricked into having a larger meal than we were planning. Me and my partner was quite upset about this.

    Made a reservation for new years. They offered a set menu at $125 per person. We sat for 1.5 hours and we were only served appetizers. People next to us came in after us and their dinner choices kept coming. Will never go back there again. Have to say though the manager did come over to apologze and say she wouldn't charge us for the 1 drink and the bread. Well, isn't that lovely? 100% unacceptable

    A very good inventive French inspired menu, this was my first time eating here, visiting my girlfriend in Vancouver. I will not hesitate to go back here again and sample my way through the menu. I had the Arctic Char Which was superbly and perfectly cooked, with a white bean paste.

    I love Tableau. It’s a classic French Bistro. The interior is warm and inviting and transports the diner to France. The menu is simple and everything is well done. Our food arrived quickly, perhaps too quickly but there was no pressure to finish our meal. If I had one quibble it’s that the bistro chairs don’t have felt pads so they make a horrible noise on the floor when people are being seated. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable. Easily 4.5 stars.

    Meal today was abit off! Tuna was not served seared rare but barely seared super rare… so disappointing, no flavor. Tomatoes were a weirdly mushy watery flavorless triangle so when I asked our server about their process, marinated, vinaigrette? He asked chef & returned with an answer of ‘oven roasted’ Wow… next time maybe turn the oven on! I think with the issues we were encountering a quick visit from management would have been warranted however maybe customer feedback isn’t important! Next time, no food just a cocktail! My tummy has finally settled after some grumbling!

    We had a lovely Boxing Day brunch with superb service from Jessica and Nick. Our requested seating arrangement was all well organized. The burger was to die for and the French Onion soup was delicious as usual. It was so nice to be personally recognized and welcomed back by the staff. This is now one of our "go to" restaurants
