The food and service was great! The only negative is that for a restaurant that serves small dishes for a tapas like eating experience you are too crowded to really enjoy the sharing as you have to constantly be moving things around. Circular or larger tables would make sense for the full enjoyment of not just the food but your dinner mates and the atmosphere.

Food was phenomenal and service was excellent. Best recommendation anyone can give is that we made a reservation for two nights later...our last night in town.

We enjoyed a phenomenal breakfast here during our short visit to Vancouver. Everything was so incredibly fresh and delicious. My husband got the pork cutlet sandwich and I got the two egg breakfast. Wish we could have come back for dinner!

Forage was amazing. We got sparkling wine as soon as we sat down, and our server was lively and very friendly. We ordered the brussel sprouts which were so good I got goosebumps as I chewed them. We also ordered the duck, and the gnocchi. The duck was delicious, the gnocchi dish was good too, although it was quite salty. I would go back for sure. The wine and beer flights are great especially for such a low price!! We will be back!

Generally good experience, the food was a bit bland at time and the Halibut was very overcooked and was dry, which is a shame because it's one of my favorite fish when care is taken to ensure it's cooked correctly.

Our party of 4 shared 3 appetizers, 2 mains and 2 desserts. We enjoyed all 7 very much. Our server was very friendly and helpful. I think that the consensus was that the halibut was the favorite. I especially liked the wild mushroom dish.

Forage is a wonderful choice for a Farm-to-Market fanatic. The food options are sufficiently diverse, and the freshness of the meal is a decided plus. Servings are family-style, with the intention that a couple will share 3-4 dishes, although an individual selection would be an adequate serving for one individual. We had heirloom tomatoes that presented an interesting collection of crisp, fresh tomatoes on a bed of basil pesto. Ahi Crudo was tasty, garnished with mild green peppers, and all-in-all a delectable dish. The key to Forage is that everything purports to be local, and this is carried to the extreme when you get to the bar. There is no Scotch Whisky because there is no Scotch produced in BC (or so we were told). And I may be mistaken, but I thought I caught Tito’s Vodka in the corner of my eye. Wines are all local, and the list is broad enough (when supplemented with some advice from a waiter who seemed to know specifics about the bottles listed). So, yes, I would recommend this to a person intent on pure local BC fare. But this is not the place to come for a tasty cocktail at the end of the day, when relaxation with one’s favorite libation is an important part of the dining experience.

Enjoyed the special, the chef came up on steel cut oats, with Szechuan granola, duck and poached egg ... I loved the first bite and last. A dish I want to try again ... even better, what will the chef dream up next!

Went for a birthday dinner, and had a wonderful time. Delicious food and great service. The guys were still slightly hungry though. So that is my only reason for not giving the full five stars. Smaller portions for the high price. Definitely a great choice for a special occasion or a once in a while treat.

Food was FABULOUS as was our waitress. The greeters were a little haggard and distracted, but nice. I put "do not recall" for noise level, but it was a bit loud. Oh. My latte wasn't great, but that's just if I'm getting picky. :) Over all everything was absolutely great and we'll definitely be back!
