Have always loved this restaurant for dinner. Lunched there with a friend, the noise level so high we were unable to have a good conversation; found my menu choice very salty. The service was par excellent.

Quinn gave excellent service as always. Food and ambiance were superb! The canard and the steak were deliciously cooked. The oysters were fresh. The only thing that turned us off were the host/hostess. When we booked through Open Table, we specifically asked for either table 20 or 21. But when we arrived, both tables were given away. We even called an hour before to request for these tables but it was useless, they still gave it away even though they promised they would reserve it for us. What’s the point again of reserving? The host even tried to weasel his way out of his incompetence. That really turned us off. I guess we’re going back to Giardino or Le Crocodile where you wouldn’t experience such a disorganized reservation system.

Leya was excellent and served us well. She asked how we are doing, and constantly refilling our water even though the water jug was on the table. She remembered our names.

Great fit out, location and service but the menu needs some development. Steaks are sliced into pieces, foie gras is a weird interpretation and fries were piled on top of the mules that caused them to go soggy.

Tableau is one of the best bistros in Vancouver. The ambience is very European, the menu is excellent and has everything you'd expect for brunch and lunch. The outside dining is right on the street, but on a weekend or holiday the street is not too busy. Staff are very helpful and friendly.

This place delivers where others don't. The value they put on communication is fantastic, personable is the best way to describe it. Outside of that the food was amazing, the drinks were spot on. We were here for my wife's birthday, and everyone who was in contact with us made a point of saying happy birthday to her. My wife felt special because of that, and that made it all worth it.

The food and ambiance are superb! The steak and Canard were both cooked to perfection. The truffle fries are to die for, we ordered a second order! The profiteroles were delightful! Quinn gave an impeccable service. Thank you and we will be back for sure. It’s our favourite restaurant now 😊

Delicious food and spectacular service, as always. Finally got to try the dessert this time and I am pleasantly surprise at the portions. I was not expecting three pieces for an order of Profiteroles, which is a great value. I am glad we shared one order since there is no way I could have finished all three pieces by myself.

Always room for improvement but always good! Server was very pleasant! My husband felt the Mushrooms on Toast with Fried Egg was not quite adequate for a start to his day! One toast one egg! He is not a big eater either so he will order something else next time! These are different days!

The Plateau de Charcuterie was excellent and the service welcoming and pleasant. We liked the ambience but the noise level was sufficiently high that it was difficult to converse without shouting. The food was imaginative, although our fish dish and fries were overcooked and some vegetables cool-cold. The dessert was delicious. I would have rated the value more highly had the main course been well prepared and warmer. We did appreciate not being rushed from course to course.

It was our anniversary and the team at Tableau made us feel very welcome. Great service and enjoyed the food. It was Friday night so packed and noise level was rather high inside.
Otherwise a great evening.

1. Bad service . We came around 3pm. There were only 3 tables near the windows and inside the restaurant. Not busy at all. The waiter always skipped our table, never pour water for us. He always went straight to the table opposite us, spent time talking to the guy instead of cleaning our table. Not only until his female co-worker came that gave us a new bottle of water and pour it in.
Also, he forgot to bring us seafood nutpick, he never came to check on us. Only when we finished our meal that his female co-worker said sorry for bringing them out late. Lololol....

2. Not good food. I didnt like most items of the seafood tower.

And we Wont come back .
