Excellent fresh local food, prepared creatively and beautifully. We went for a family birthday dinner and everyone was happy with every dish. We ordered family style which is highly recommended so you get to taste everything! We will be back.

Forage is best experienced with a group, as the dishes are designed to be enjoyed family style, but a solo diner can reasonably eat 1 menu item (I had a wonderful salmon dish), but if you can gather a bunch of friends who are adventurous eaters, it'd be an amazing experience.

A lovely casual setting with a great farm-to-table idea. While the restaurant got good reviews, we left more confused what the hype was about. The duck chowder was delish and the highlight of the meal. The corn bread was special in that the sweetness pulled through on the peppers and honey, and a nice juxtaposition to the cheesy flavor, and the corn kernels provided a nice crunch but all a little too salty. Slow cooked salmon was cooked well but came out like-warm and the bison steak was not memorable and super raw. Not sure if it was meant to be cooked that way but I also want asked my preference. The salmon and bison cane out last, naturally, but so delayed we had to ask if it was still coming. The salmon cane out and 10-mins later, after another follow up, the bison came. I was getting full and afraid I didn’t have space for the bison.
Our server was apologetic and offered us complimentary dessert but we were too full over the length of the waiting. She comp’d our drinks (1 glass of wine).

This was some of the best food I have ever had! We shared six dishes among four people. We liked it so much we went back two days later. Standouts were the duck, the eggplant with ham, the tomatoes,
and, well, everything. We can't recommend it highly enough.

Best place in Vancouver. Food is great, based on outstanding raw material. Something different from me-too Italian /French kitchen you might find in North America. Very interesting the way they organise the menu, a bonus for this.
You have to try it!

Excellent food and service. Though I enjoyed the music they played it does not fit with the overall theme/ambiance of the restaurant. It is probably well suited for Timber next door but not Forage.

Forage was everything I had hoped for! I took my brother and his wife to dinner, wanting it to be a special and memorable experience, one they probably wouldn’t spring for themselves. It was all that, and more. The food was exquisite! The complex combinations of flavor and texture were perfection from start to finish. I’m happy we went fairly early, as the space got pretty noisy as it filled up, making conversation difficult, but that is my only quibble; we weren’t there to talk, but to dine!

It's hard to convey how excellent our meal at Forage was. We'd been on a cruise ship for a week, eating reasonable, but fairly typical food. When we arrived back in Vancouver for a couple of days before returning home, we went for a walk and I spied Forage. I immediately checked out their menu and knew that we were going to have to eat there.

The salad we ordered was incredible, filled with fresh greens, herbs, flowers. Gently dressed, excellent goat cheese. We had the corn bread...beyond delicious. The honey was amazing...I'm a beekeeper and I love to try different honey. Mostly I want to taste only the honey, but this was beautifully spiced and so good with the cornbread! We had pork and beef as larger sharing plates. We fought over the beef, my partner let me have all the figs (what a sweetheart). And we devoured every bite.

We had no room for dessert, but the meal, ambiance, service and experience lingered on for the rest of the evening. Do not miss the chance to eat here! Simply amazing.

We first visited Forage back in 2016, this was our second time here and the food and service remain excellent as ever. We just love how the folks here source their ingredients. Serving sizes were perfect for sharing. Definitely one of our favourites when visiting Vancouver.

Chef Choi is truly a master chef. We were in Vancouver for three nights and before our first night’s meal at Forage was over, we made reservations for the second night. And it was again so absurdly delicious and artfully different that we had reserved our third night even before the dessert menu was presented. We are well-traveled foodies and Chef Choi is now one of our worldwide favorite chefs. If you like conventional food and eschew anything out of the ordinary, stay away from Forage. But if you want your taste buds to take on a new life, try for a reservation at Forage

Our server was fabulous. Food was amazing! There was only one entree that was given that we were disappointed with, and it was the carrots which were served cold. We thought it should have stated that on the menu. Other than that, it was fabulous. I am excited to go again soon! :)

I did recommend this place to my German family when they visited. They made a booking, came and ate and loved it too. I love the farm to table aspect of the restaurant and my sons just love the turkey sausages, well and everything else including the jam for the excellent sourdough. I don't want it to get too crazy busy and I definitely have taken to booking a table for breakfast.

Visited the restaurant on Friday night. Was quite surprise that the place was quiet. I love the ambience of the restaurant. It was quiet, warm and cozy- perfect for a date! If you have not tried the heirloom tomato dish, please do yourself a favour and try the dish. It was phenomenal! We also ordered the charcuterie board and pork belly. Every dish was very tasty and flavourful. One critique - the pork belly could have more char on it. Awesome experience! Will definitely come back to try other dishes.

We found the food to be both original and tasty. I have never been to a farm to table restaurant, and Forage has made interested in trying others. The duck chowder was our first course, and it was delicious, as was the salmon, bison steak, and dessert. The presentation was beautiful. Our only negative comment is that is was quite challenging to hear one another, but it was still worth it. Thank you.

Very tasty food, large choice of wine and beer. The service was great and quick.
The restaurant is very noisy, music is loud and with the people taking around us we could barely understand what the waiter was telling us.

Lovely food, great service, nice ambience. My only criticism is that it's all sharing plates and that's quite hard to deal with when you're a family of 5 and you're dividing up small pieces of cheese into 5 so that everyone can taste everything. Well worth the struggle though - great food.

Food is good as always, and service is LACKING, as always.

We were not asked to top off the coffee and water during the entire course of the meal; the food were served before our cutleries were brought over, and the server lacked the friendliness to even try.

This is our third time here. The second time we were forgotten for the course of the meal — sitting in the corner helped. Had to ask for four times to get our jam and any water.
