    Our last meal in Vancouver. Ate on the patio at a high top facing the street. Great Caesar salad. Braised lamb shank was a bit tough, but steak frites were enjoyed by my friend. Nice wine by the glass selection

    We went here after being recommended to go by a few people recently. We were very impressed with the French food. We really only have L’Crocodile to compare it to as all the other French restaurants we have found have been fusions or just not French. It is a more laidback restaurant which was also nice.

    My Steak Frites was wonderful but my companion’s Dinner salad was very disappointing and she was not offered a replacement or refund - not acceptable for such an exciting restaurant!

    Mains were steak frites and shrinp salad. The food was so well prepared and excellent. The steak was absolutely perfectly cooked as requested and steak-house tender. Comes with a nice salad and fries. The fries were good but not quite traditional steak frites style. They were slightly thicker. The shrimp were also perfectly cooked. Service was very friendly and good. They have a nice well thought out compact wine list. Lots of great French wines to choose from. The noise level is quite high.

    From the reservations on the phone thru personal interactions, I might say thay are so good. The staffs are very accomodating. It seems they know every items on the lists. You can ask for the best in the house and why its the best, and according to your own preferences will your order be served. They wanna make sure that your dining experience will be a memorable one. The food and wine were excellent too! And yes, you will learn some french words and terms and it's meaning, and some secrets that non- French speaker do not know about. Over all, we really enjoyed our night and really appreciate the kind of service and attention that they rendered on us. Kudos to you guys! We'll be back for sure. Thank you!

    We had a mushroom toast, foie grass, stale and a tomatoe galette- they were all excellent. But the biggest asset of this place is the service. Attentive, kind, helpful. And parking is easy in this neighborhood. We come here often and will continue coming.

    Tableau is always a great choice for a large group or intimate dinner. It feels like a very metropolitan restaurant in a foreign city. I am never disappointed.

    TERRIBLE CHEF'S ATTITUDE. This was our second and last time there. Our toddler is allergic to egg; thus, we thought we could order a simple ham and cheese sandwich for her because they have Croque Madame sandwich on the menu, but the Chef, literally, refused to cook anything for her due to the high-risk of cross-contamination. At this point, we have already ordered our meals and were in our second round of beverages (the service was kinda slow but we were fine till that point). Besides that, we were celebrating a friend, so it was not an option to leave the restaurant!! After some back and forth with the server, the Restaurant Manager intervened and saved the day. Overall, the front-of-house service was fine yet the Chef's response was unacceptable and that is the reason that we are not coming back to that restaurant ever. A Chef cannot simple decide to leave a toddler or any person without any food just because it is easier for them to do so!

    The meal was hands down the best French cuisine I've had in Vancouver. We were seated in the back reception room which is beautifully decorated. The meal, wine and service were outstanding. Nick, our waiter was the definition of fine service, his knowledge of the menu, food and wine, plus the history of the restaurant were impressive. Would highly recommend visiting for any occasion. Par excellence

    Service was very good - tables and chairs were cleaned separately - lamb dish was cooked perfectly but sauce/relish woefully lacked in complementing the meat - appetizers were decent - coq au vin was good - just one house wine available by glass - overall fairly decent dining experience except for the lamb which is a dish that I order with considerable frequency in restaurants and for which the sauce is of great importance

    Both the food and service are outstanding. Foie gras terrine was an amazing opener. Arctic char with the Eggplant pancake was my favorite dish of the meal. Butterscotch pot de crème, the best pot de crème I’ve ever had. Usually they’re chocolate and too rich but this one was perfect. Definitely recommend Tableau to anyone at any time.
