    The food really missed my expectations. 2 of the 5 or 6 mains on the menu were unavailable so I picked the $45 Halibut and it was not fluffy and soft like cooked fish should be. The texture of the fish was hard and very disappointing. Given the number of good restaurants in the City I will not visit Tableau again anytime soon.

    You must get the foie gras — the best I’ve ever had! The tartare was also excellent. Also happy hour from 2:30-5ish with bottles of champagne at amazing prices (plus Veuve by the glass).

    The service, food, and drinks here were amazing. My husband said it was the best steak he’s ever had and the halibut melted in my mouth. Our server was also incredible and had the best recommendations. We were only visiting Vancouver for a week but loved it so much we almost went twice.

    The oysters during happy hour were fairly small. About 1/2 the size of regular oysters from Fanny Bay. Flavour was good though. Not too briny and not dried up at all. Steak tartare was good with quail egg. Would have preferred with toasted baguette instead of chips, but that's a minor complaint and more of personal preference.

    Drinks were good, but food was meh. Nothing good or bad stood out. At this price point, it was disappointing. We had the French onion soup, mushroom toast, and truffle fries to start before moving onto the lamb, chicken, and mussels for the mains. Dessert was the bread pudding and lemon tarts. The ambience was warm and relaxing while the service was very attentive and well informed. We received complimentary champagne for the birthday we were celebrating. Staff morale seemed strong and it was an enjoyable experience.

    Our first day in Vancouver visiting from NJ and we were immediately impressed with pretty much everything this place had to offer from service to options and quality of food. We’ve dined quite a bit in NYC, Miami, Vegas and do not recall many places that match the experience and value of Tableau. Go and try it out - you won’t be disappointed.

    We were early just before 5pm. This means you can’t order off the dinner menu till then. We were encouraged by the happy hour which we took full advantage of. Dishes were fabulous. I would recommend to anyone coming to coal harbour.

    This was my third or fourth time going to Tableau Bar Bistro and the experience was amazing as always! My boyfriend and I love coming for brunch - we enjoy the ambience (lively but not too noisy or busy), quality of the food (great value for the price), and of course, the exceptional service. Our most recent waitress was particularly thoughtful and brought me an extra pineapple mimosa for being returning customers! We will absolutely be back. Tableau will be our go-to, not only for casual-ish dates but also friends and family who visit us in Vancouver :) can’t wait til the next meal!

    One dish was excellent (the risotto) and the other was a bit disappointing (coq au vin) as it was served not warm and flavors were meh. The service was excellent. A very noisy party of 8 raised the sound level beyond comfort. If still try it again to see what else on the menu is good.
