Overpriced for what you get, and the food itself was comparatively bland. In a city with so many fine options for dining I couldn’t in good conscience ask anyone to pay so much for such average fare.
Absolutely wonderful! When we lived in Vancouver this was our “Go-to” spot for visiting family & friends. We now live in Victoria and you’re still our “Go-to”... travel time is much longer but totally worth it. My Dad is celiac and gets giddy with all of your GF items. Thank you for another great experience. Cheers!
Great waiter. Knew menu and made suggestions. Friendly atmosphere
Hi, Glad that you enjoyed your experience. Mid-April we revamped our menu and added a variety of local and seasonal Wild Canadian seafood and game as well as plant-based options to the menu! Cheers!
We found the hostesses on mother’s day to be unprepared for our arrival even though we had a reservation. She asked us to sit at a shared table. When we said no, our mothers would like their own table, is here one available she said yes there was but now she was going to have to change everything around and made us wait 10 minutes. I found the whole thing rude and irritating- of course we don’t want a shared table for a special occasion! Then at the end we were told there were chocolates at the hostess station so we had to stand in line like idiots waiting for them to come free so we could ask them for our chocolates. Since my mother in law was in the bathroom I asked for 2, one for her and one for me. The hostess said, sorry these are actually only for the mothers. I said I am a mother. She continued to argue with me. I wasn’t sure if I needed some kind of proof of motherhood to satisfy her! Finally she handed them over but I was seriously upset over that. I’m a step mother to children who’s real mother has left them. It’s a sensitive subject. I don’t see why the server couldn’t just have brought the chocolates to the table at the end of he meal instead of making us line up and ask for them
And be questioned about whether we were actually real mothers or not. Great food and nice waitress and we loved the complimentary champagne but your hostess team is the pits and put a damper on our day.
Came for Mother’s Day, quite busy. Hostess made a point of saying that they don’t hold tables for more than three minutes when your late. We were ten mins late. Server was awesome, lovely English gentleman. Food was amazing!
Hi, Thanks for choosing us to spend Mother's Day at Edible Canada! We are happy to hear that you experienced an awesome service and enjoyed our Canadian cuisine. Have a great day!
Nice place but food is average and service is really poor. They made us wait 20 minutes before they came to even ask what we wanted for drinks and we waited longer for our mains. Nice patio but average food and definitely overpriced probably because of the location in Granville Island.
On Vacation and decided to try! Was Great place!
Duck Poutine was Awesome!
Hi Debi, We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our duck poutine on your vacation and the overall experience with us. Have a wonderful day!
Not great . Service slow. We advised on arrival theatre at 8 . Had planned extra 30 min to diner over their recommended 90 min . Appetizerand salad described a” large serving “ were not and left one diner hungry. Waited 40 min for main course. Waiter kept avoiding us but checking with kitchen and looking our way. Finally manager came : sorry kitchen is slammed . Ok then offer some nibbles. Main course arrived and meat was cold. Sturgeon was over cooked and 3 very tiny morsel of fish the size of a scallop . Not impressed. No time for dessert as had to rush out. Would not recommend
Love the Benny
Happy to hear :) Have a wonderful day!
Hi, Thank you so much for your feedback! We are very happy that you enjoyed our Canadian cuisine!
We enjoyed lunch here in the middle of a walk through Granville Public market, but I would go back just for this restaurant. Delicious food. The fish and chips were fantastic.... and gluten free with a dedicated fryer. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Hi, We're thrilled that you truly enjoyed our gluten-free fish & chips made with Arctic char from the Yukon! Thanks for dining with us! See you around!
A group of 6 women went to dinner recently before the theatre. Our waiter (black hair and beard) was fantastic - he made sure we got served in a timely fashion, had excellent suggestions about the menu, was friendly but professional, and dealt with 6 separate checks without a blink. Farro risotto was outstanding.
Hi, We are thrilled to read about your pre-theatre experience at Edible Canada! See you around with your group of friends! Have a wonderful day!
The menu is very limited now. I have been there several times and it seems hit or miss with quality of food.
Hi Robert, Thank you for your feedback, we very much appreciate it! It would be great if you could respond to what you wish to see more on our menu! That would help us to understand where we can improve in our menu creation! Have a good day!
Enjoyed the food but the tables were a little close so you felt like your neighbors on either side could join in on your conversation
Hi Clare, Thanks for your honest feedback! We do understand where you are coming from and will improve accordingly. We will open our patio very soon which will give us more room to seat people! On some days we rearrange the seating, depending on the groups that are coming in, and that might have been the case when you dined with us! Have a good day!
Edible Canada was an authentic Canadian experience and a must do if you’re from out of town looking to get a taste of Canada.
Hi Nicole, Amazing! Edible Canada is indeed the one stop to experience "The Taste Of Canada". Have a wonderful day!
Always some interesting, and sometimes unconventional, menu items. Braised lamb tagliatelle, and farro risotto were both very tasty.
Hi, We have recently launched our new menu and are very excited about our new menu items. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the lamb tagliatelle and the farro risotto. Have a wonderful day!
It's a nice space, and the service was great. We dislike salmon that is dry, so we specifically asked our waitress if the salmon was moist, and she assured us it was, saying it was her favourite dish on the menu. So we ordered that, plus the duck poutine, and a plate of roasted root vegetables.
We were given a trio of salts to go with our meal, plain, truffle salt, and spicy salt. Nice touch, and unique. However, we never got to use them because the salmon (dry) and the poutine were both already inedibly salty. The vegetables were good, but it was a ridiculously small portion for $17.
We really wanted to like Edible Canada, but my rating is mostly for the ambiance and service, not the food, unfortunately...
Hi, We are very sorry to hear about your negative experience with our food! We agree that it should not be too salty and what you have described is not in line with our standards. We recently changed our menu and there have been a few changes in the kitchen but we are working hard to improve accordingly, based on the feedback from the past days! We hope that you will give us another chance in the future! Have a good day!
We have been there many times and the service and food is excellent! There is a sense, in true local Canadian style, that you are dining with friends!
Hi, We absolutely love how you described our Canadian bistro on Granville Island. We are truly all about sitting together around a table and celebrating life, local and fresh ingredients as well as local farmers, and what our bountiful land has to offer! Have a wonderful day!
The food was amazing and beautiful
Amazing to hear, thank you so much!
Very interesting and delicious food. Casual setting a great location across from the Public Market.
Hi, So glad that you enjoyed your time at Edible Canada! That's correct, we are located at the heart of Granville Island :) See you around!
We had a great brunch with family; food was great as always and service was excellent!
Hi Lisa, We are excited to read that you had a great Easter brunch at Edible Canada! Have a wonderful Easter Monday!
Great service and ambiance. Very accommodating for allergy restrictions. Friendly staff and varied menu. Risotto slightly undercooked but flavorful.
Hi Christine, Thank you so much for your honest review! It is truly important for us to accommodate any allergy restrictions. See you around!
Another great dinner out at our favourite spot!
Staff was delightful, food and drinks were phenomenal. Absolutely a top notch place! Can be either casual or for a special event or date. Highly recommended!
Hi Megan, WOW! Thank you so much for your lovely words! It means a lot to hear that you had a great experience with us! We will be launching our spring menu this month and are looking forward to seeing you around! Cheers & have a wonderful day!
We absolutely loved our meals! Great job once again on a job well done from the meal to the server!
Hi Lisa, Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We're so thrilled that you enjoyed your whole experience at Edible Canada, as you put it: from the meal to the server :) Have a wonderful day!
We asked server Jess what was really good Saturday evening.
She said the salmon was always good. So we both ordered salmon
And was it ever!!
Perfectly cooked and beautifully presented!!
Don't usually do dessert, but decided because it was an early birthday dinner we shared the organic crem brule and coffee. A perfect end to a wonderful evening on Granville Island, that started with the Flamenco dance group performance at the Improv Theatre.
Hi Ernie, We are so happy to read about your wonderful experience at Edible Canada and about Jess being the absolute super host :) It was our joy to make your evening extra special and offering the best of Wild Canadian seafood & game paired with our BC wine. Have a wonderful day!
The food and service were excellent!
AWESOME!! Thank you so much for your lovely words! I will share your review with the team. Have a great day!
Excellent service and food! We had the kale and beet salad plus the chowder to start. Then the boar tagliatelle as well as the mussel, clam and chorizo dishes as mains. Excellent all around. Noise level was low but that may be because the restaurant was less than half full. Would definitely go again!
Hi, It's wonderful to hear that you had an excellent experience with us! We are very much looking forward to having you back again! Have a wonderful day!
There was good vibes in the restaurant when we came in - service was prompt and friendly and the food was very good - the red wine was too warm but our server Andrew? took care of it.
Hi Carol, Thank you so much for writing this review. We're sorry that the red wine was too warm at the beginning but we're glad to hear that our server Andrew took care of it. See you around! Have a great day!
This is a pleasant spot for a quick meal if you are at the Granville Markets. Small but interesting food and wine menus, and seemed to offer something for everyone. The fish was fresh. It was also great to see steak offered as a side dish, so my husband was able to order the salad for the entree, which makes for perfect portion sizing.
Hi, Thank you for reviewing our restaurant. We're very happy that you had a great and smooth experience with us. We are very proud of our local and seasonal Canadian cuisine! We will keep you posted on our social channels! See you around & have a great day!
Amazing, as always. Ate there twice in 24 hours (c:
Hi Erika, That's amazing to hear that you can't get enough of Edible Canada :) See you around & have a great day!
Gluten free fish and chips were delicious! Server was very attentive. Edible is worth bringing friends to.
Hi Tania, Thank you for spreading the love for Edible Canada with your friends :) Great choice, our gluten-free fish & chips are an Edible Canada favourite. See you around!
Good variety and portions. Food beautifully presented and delicious. We were seated on time and didn’t feel rushed during dinner. Service was great!
Hi Debbie, Your words mean a lot to us! I will make sure to pass your feedback on to the team! Have a wonderful day!
We went for our anniversary. The dinner experience was so special it was like a dream. Thank you for making out 20 year anniversary perfect!
Congratulations to your 20th anniversary! At Edible Canada we believe that people who eat together, stay together :) It's fantastic to hear that you had an absolute great date night and it was our pleasure making your anniversary perfect!! Have a wonderful day!
Great service and food. We enjoyed the food. Place is very nice
Hi Blaine, That's great to hear that you enjoyed our Canadian cuisine and our service. When you dine with us, you get a 10% discount in our retail store which is adjacent to the bistro. Have a great day!
We went for dinner before our show at Arts Club. Perfect spot. You get 15% off your meal if you are going to the show! Food is fresh and delicious! Great for everyday dining, or get together with friends, or even date night! Highly recommend!
Hi Lisa, Thank you for your kind words! We hope you also had an awesome time at the play on Granville Island. Another perk when you are dining with us is that you get a 10% discount in our retail shop that is filled with 100% Canadian-made artisan products :) See you around!
Great food and service that I've come to expect at Edible Canada.
Hi, We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed the Canadian cuisine and service at Edible Canada. Hope to see you around!
I’m surprised to get an email from Open Table saying we didn’t show, because we were there, gave our name and were greeted like they expected us. Our waiter was very attentive and knew we were going to the theatre after. I had the excellent fish and chips and my husband had squid which he said was very nice.
Hi, Thank you for letting us know. There must have been an issue on Open Table. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your Canadian cuisine and service at Edible Canada. See you around!
It's a nice space and great for a casual lively social meal; not really a place for a quiet romantic dinner, though. There was a wide selection of beverages: cocktails, wine, beer, and non-alcoholic options. Our food was tasty although not exceptional, and our portion sizes were very small for the price.
Hi, We very much appreciate your feedback and are glad to hear that we could impress you with our beverage options. It is always very important for us to act on the feedback we get and your feedback is no exception from that. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Cheers!
