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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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...

Edible Canada at the Market
Responded on April 24, 2019

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 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.

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!

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.
