    We had a fabulous vegetarian meal here. Not a lot of veggie options but what they had suited both of us and was excellent! Would like to see more than 1 appetizer and 1 entree selection for vegetarians. Wouldn’t attempt to dine here if vegan.

    I made reservations for 3 a few weeks ahead. When we got there, the place was packed. We got the worst table in the middle of the restaurant. When we asked to be seated in the corner booth instead, we were told that it was reserved for a party of 4. A little while later, 3 men arrived and they were seated in that corner booth. So much for a party of 4… ??? The service was very good. 👍

    Overall food, service and ambience were good. Music was loud though. Onion soup and tartar were outstanding. Beef fillet and Canard were bit dry, portion of Lamb Saddle was very small for 45$. Based on my experience it’s 7 out of 10.

    We had an excellent experience at Tableau! The friendly staff was totally welcoming and engaged with us, being over-the-top in customer service. The food (beef bourgonione (sp?) was wonderful. The ambience is great. We were seated in a booth-like spot, which helped the two of us seniors be able to hear and converse well. We highly recommend Tableau!

    I think this is the most underrated restaurant in vancouver. It’s the quintessential French bistro— with authentic French servers to boot! As a regular patron (I come here all the time), I can confidently say that the quality of both the food and service remains consistently excellent. One of the advantages of its underrated status is the ease of securing a reservation, event at the last minute; and so, for this reason and the aforementioned reasons, it’s my default restaurant. *The mushrooms on toast is a must!

    A lovely lunch again! Originally seated in that back room ( claustrophobic… but soon moved to a corner table in main restaurant … good to be shielded from the noise which is always a problem just about everywhere now . Not sure why ‘music’ is required as it’s just an annoying constant beat over conversation. However, I know most like it. Excellent waiter… professional and knowledgeable for the food and wine. Make sure you hold onto him! Steak frites with a side salad was tender and very good. Cauliflower tart was declared delicious and ‘ would have again’ by my friend! Always enjoyable and nice and helpful staff.

    Nice brunch - but the music was WAY too loud. I did ask3 times for it to be turned down - eventually it was. I suggest that whoever chooses the music, by time period, needs to rethink brunch background music - as the boom.. boom woofer isn't very conducive.
