A wood burning fireplace! That was a treat on a snowy night. Everything was just fine ... but our group felt the music was a problem. Erratic volume level and incompatible with conversation.
Food was fantastic, specialty drinks were great and the service was top notch. Couldn't ask for a better experience.
Food was very tasty and unique flavors. Very loud to visit in restaurant....maybe outside might be quieter.
Top notch service. Food delicious - my favorite is the warm kale salad.
Excellent food and very friendly staff. Natasha, our server, very pleasant.
When for dine-out but much of the food was cold and either over-seasoned or tasteless (cod). Service was slow but nice, atmosphere is warm and friendly but very noisy as well. I wouldn't recommend going unless there was a particular dish you wished to try.
Went for dine out Vancouver. Food and service was amazing but the portions were very small
We were very disappointed with the Dine Out 2018 experience here at The Oakwood Canadian Bistro. I have been to The Oakwood Canadian Bistro twice for brunch and both times I had great experience; therefore, we had high expectation for dinner. The service and the quality of food were mediocre. The portion sizes were small and we left feeling hungry.
We had a great meal with happy hour drinks beforehand, can't go wrong with $13 pasta mains on Sunday - all servers recommendations were spot on!
Great food great drink and beer selection. Always something new to try
Came here for Dine Out 2018 and the evening exceeded all expectations. From being politely greeted at arrival, to our wonderful and helpful server, to the amazing food. Service was fantastic the entire evening; the perfect amount of attentiveness. We never had to ask for wine or water top ups. The menu was very creative and the food was delicious.
Many delicious and well created dishes.
Service was fantastic.
First time at the restaurant. The food was exceptional, the ling cod was delicious. Great selection of local beers and cocktails. Definitely would recommend for a date night restaurant.
I visited the restaurant during Dine Out. The Dine Out menu did not resemble the restaurant’s regular menu and the restaurant did not give diners the option of ordering from the regular menu. The server was great but the food did not do justice to what the kitchen is capable of doing. Also, portions were very small for the entrees. I think Dine Out works best when the menu includes items that the restaurant regularly offers. It was the first time that some of my friends who joined me for dinner had been to the Oakwood and based on their experience, they are unlikely to return to the restaurant.
The choice of starters, entrees and dessert for the dine out menu was very good. Food was delicious. Natasha was our server and very attentive and friendly. Lovely evening with good food and drink to celebrate a special occasion.
Very cozy atmosphere! Our group was delighted with the food - very imaginative dishes with good portion sizes. None of our party of 4 were disappointed. A true neighbourhood gem worth the drive for those not living in Kits. Will come again.
DOV should be considered a good introduction to new customers eh? Well they failed.
We liked the ambiance, the service
And the decoration.
But we found the food a bit heavy, although the ingrediënts were nicely combined.
Fabulous - for our group of 8 we had an amazing culinary experience
This place is totally overrated online! It was very loud so much so that no conversation was possible at all. As far as the food goes I found every dish very strong flavors, e.g. pickled grapes and cheese with bacon fries. There were too many extreme flavors, nothing came as it tastes (e.g. potatoes or beets as everything had some type of coating). I found that the plates were very small to share. The place was trying to be something hip and special but it's not. I would definitely not recommend it for children, it's not child friendly at all.
The only positive point I can make is the staff who was friendly and smiling. The food took way too long to be prepared but that's also a sign that's fresh (although you could argue that on some of the dishes we had).
