Authentic French Bistro in the business district of Vancouver. Good service and food and timely delivery. Will be back for sure!
Our service at Tableau was outstanding!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!
They have done an amazing job to mitigate the inconvenience caused by the construction next door...
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.
Lovely dinner. Our server was great. The food was delicious and the patio was really nice
Very nice hosts
Our server was amazing. Thank you!
the staffs were very nice to my 4 years old twin daughters. Brought crayons for them to draw. Chitchat with them. My daughters loves all the staffs.
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.
Came back after it was reopened. The service was good. The food was good. The overall experience was good.
The bartender, I think his name was David, created some of the greatest drinks I’ve ever had, a real talent. Overall an excellent experience, would recommend.
Service was very good.
Absolutely great food - coupled with excellent service.
First time guests, but after tonight’s experience we will become regulars. Outstanding service, great atmosphere and fantastic food. Compliments to the staff.
Birthday. They spoiled us
Everything was perfect
Always a pleasure! Best happy hour in town with the discounted Champagne.
Lovely food and great atmosphere, can't wait for the patio to open in summer!
Service is always amazing and our server was so knowledgeable
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.
Wonderful ambiance, service and food. Will be back very soon!
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
So amazing! Staff was excellent, cocktails are awesome, and the food perfect. Don’t think about it, just go! Vite vite😁
Excellent brunch! We had the mushrooms on toast, brisket hash, and frites. All of it was delicious and we will definitely be back.
It is gem of a restaurant! From well made drinks to delish food you have it all! A must try if you have never been!
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.
What an experience. Instantly felt welcomed and at home. From the Host to the Servers everything was fantastic. Happy to support a restaurant like this and will definitely be back. The Tableau Gibson cocktail is the bomb.
So happy to have this neighbourhood restaurant open again. Great food, service and ambience
A wonderful night set in a very beautiful room, great music, food was superb and service was very engaging. Sandra on the door was super accommodating. I can't wait to come back soon.
Beautiful and cozy place with a great atmosphere and ambiance. Food is delicious and beautiful. Awesome and attentive servers
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 :(
First time at Tableau. Went with the servers recommendations and we were well looked after. The Chef even came out to our table. We will be back the next time we are downtown.
The food was amazing. I suggest getting the mushrooms on toast and the burger.
Menu is fantastic, great classical French fine dining dishes
Lovely ambience, food was very good, loved the French onion soup! Thanks a lot to Jitin for a great brunch!
This was our first time at Tableau Bar Bistro. The experience was all around top notch. The food was decadent. The reception was warm and friendly. The service was exceptional. We will definitely be back!
A great happy hour. The beef tartar, especially, was delicious.
Overall excellent meal. Great wine. Covid responsible. The ling vod and mussels were amazing. I had the New York steak which was perfect and medium rare as I ordered.
