Food was delicious, however service can be improved. First, our server set up a table for 2 instead of 3, then forgot to add the jam on toast and condiments for fries.

Tableau is a hidden gem in Vancouver and possibly one of the best french restaurants in the city. Eaten there dozens of times, every meal has been fantastic. Highly recommend.

Fabulous food, service and ambiance! Only complaint would be the loud music which didn't really match the vibe of the place. We had oysters, pate and beef tartare to start. I had the duck breast for my main and the hubs did the coq au vin. We were very happy with all of our selections and can't wait to come back to try more items.

I’ve dined several times before, mostly for lunch, loved it and was excited about the reopening. I think they are still working out the kinks.
The mushrooms on toast were fabulous! I was a bit disappointed in the crab Louie salad - they tried a deconstructed version which was meh and for the price I expected more crab.
The most disappointing thing was the noise level. Since when is a French bistro at 6:00 pm on a Sunday a night club? This isn’t the only place I’ve had the experience of having to ask them to turn down the music, just the last place I’d expect to have to do so. I realize COVID has made restaurants the new night club in a way - see anywhere in Yaletown. And fair enough, you need to do what you need to survive. But can’t say I’ll be back if that’s the way you’re going.

We've been to Tableau 3 or 4 times over the years when coming into Vancouver for business.

It's always great. It's always busy, which is a good sign, and the blue and leather decor with the correct music and lighting make the ambiance modern & comfortable.

High recommend. Make a reso, so you don't get stuck in the backroom, but the service, food & cocktails, are all on point. Don't miss this hidden gem.

Dinner was wonderful, scallop and oyster apps nice.
Coq au vin, and beef both excellent, the kitchen served itself proud, however the wait from the kitchen was a bit long, and the music a bit much.

Special treat after a year of covid- the service was impeccable- very attentive staff! Modern French / good ambiance - covid measures in place! A little on the expensive side- however food was excellent and portions were fine! If the restaurant was not under protocol and would have been full I can expect that it would have been very loud in there, however it was fine! Will certainly go back

Our first impression as we entered was the music was way too loud - more like a New York bar than a fine dining restaurant. We got used to it after 20 minutes but even so, dinner music should be soft and moderate - loud music is not conducive to good digestion. Our server was friendly and eager to please but there was a very long wait - over 30 minutes - between our appetizer (Oysters) and the arrival of our main course. Also a significant discrepancy between the description in the wine list and the actual wine that arrived at the table. (The wine described as Pessac-Leognan was, in fact, a very ordinary Bordeaux.) My Duck breast was fine but the sauce and accompaniments were overly complex and overpowering- simpler would have been better.

The food and service as always was amazing. The new renos are kind of underwhelming. They used to have these really pretty high ceilings that looked like the bottom of blue tile pools. They’ve since lowered the ceilings and closed off 2nd level windows :(
