About Yaletown Brewing Company

The Yaletown Brewing Company is Vancouver's original and best Brewpub. Founded in 1994, just as the former warehouse district of Yaletown was just beginning to emerge as a destination for businesses and residents, the YBC was built with the vision of being a true neighbourhood pub - a welcoming gathering place whether you arrived dressed in a suit or flip-flops.

With a 160-seat Restaurant and a lively Pub with TVs, a pool table and a fireplace, YBC has become a one-stop destination for everything from large corporate events to quick after-work beers with the regulars.

Make your reservations today for our dinning room; please note that all pub and patio seating is offered on a first come first serve basis.

Great restaurant, food and great craft beer, avoids the trend to burgers and pizza only.

I had made a reservation and when we arrived, we were greeted and shown to our table (by the window). It was a cold day and the window seats were on the cooler side. The hostess gave us the menus and our server arrived shortly and took our drink orders and a child food order. I had the halibut burger...excellent. The child had chicken fingers, fries, drink (loved the lemon).....also excellent. Another person had the squid....very good, however, it needed a dipping sauce that we requested and received. The last of our group had the fish and chips....not happy with the fish as it was under cooked. The server was told and she immediately took the fish and replaced the order with another fish order which was perfect. We took the trolley to the BC Lions game.....not a great game!! Overall I was happy with our experience...great service!!

The super food salad (kale, qinoia,cranberries) is outstanding and I'd return for that even though it is expensive. However, the server that night totally missed the mark on all fronts, sat for half hour and had to flag him to take our order, no refills on water, he couldn't remember orders, brought wrong beer, didn't check how we were doing. And the total meal was expensive for quantity ordered.

Good food (great salmon), quite noisy but generally relaxed and good atmosphere
Unfortunately the 3 course menu's on the website which lured us to the restaurant in the first place apparently are not available on site, only with advanced booking for larger parties? This is totally unclear on the website (also after rereading we could not find any mention of these terms) - disappointing, please correct this on the website

With tickets to the Piano Guys at the Queen Elizabeth theatre in hand, we had made reservations for dinner but were delayed in traffic. Our server assured us we would still make our concert and did a spectacular job of getting us our meals (and even time for dessert!). The food was so delicious! And the portions were perfect size for us all. We left full and satisfied.

We got a reservation on a busy night (Coldplay concert) and everything went smoothly.
Waitress was excellent and made sure we were looked after and that we wouldn't be late for the concert.
Great selection of food and beverages :)

Very accommodating and wonderful people to have as there was a unforeseen circumstance that they handled brilliantly. I could have not been more happy. My guests were extreamly impressed. The food wonderful and thankfully the music was at a level that made conversation very comfortable. Thank-you. D.

Weather helped in that it was a lovely night, very busy during happy hour, service and meal was slow but that was due to the place being packed and the waitress told us ahead of time. Nice spot to people watch as we were on the patio.

 (Seattle)·Dined on February 19, 2017

Good food, difficult reservation process. Called up to reserve table because Open table wouldn't take reservations for 8 via mobile, was placed on l-o-n-g hold. After person came back, she eventually told me she could reserve for 8, we should just show up - yeah right, and wait for a long time...been there, done that. So my husband and I both made Open table reservations for 4, no problem. When we got there they had put tables together - no problem, space was fairly empty as it was early for dinner. Confusing why the reservation process was so difficult. Waiter was nice, but slow on the return for 2nd group of beverage orders etc. overall, not best experience, but as always beer and food we're great. If you want our business, both service and food should be.

Food is basic but good. Special pizza Sundays are a very good deal ($10). Service is friendly and efficient. The music level is a bit high as it was very hard to carry on a conversation. Good to have an energetic vibe but this was beyond comfortable.

I made a Valentine's Day reservation for my friend and I before the Brad Paisley concert at Rogers Arena, thinking it would be a good spot to grab a casual bite to eat before walking/cabbing to the concert. Yaletown Brewing Company FAR exceeded our expectations. From the moment we sat down, our server (shout-out to Geoff, the best server EVER!) was welcoming and helpful with beverage selection. The food (we both had the 10oz Ribeye) was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. Surprise of the night was when Geoff told us about the trolley transportation to the arena - what a fantastic service to offer your clientele! We were able to stay longer and enjoy another drink knowing that we didn't have to worry about finding a cab or walking. We will definitely be returning to YBC, and soon!
