forage never disappoints! I messed up my reservation by selecting 7:15am instead of pm and they were still able to fit us in. The staff are phenomenal . . . personality +, the food . . . sublime! Every time we go to Vancouver, we always make a point of making a reservation at forage.

Everything was great! The food (4 dishes and dessert) we shared were exceptional! One dish (grilled asparagus) was not our favourite - a little to sweet for our taste. The other three dishes which included the bison carpaccio was very delicious. The favours that the chef created for each dish was something that we will be back for as well as the great service.

Expensive but good. Particularly recommend for families since they were very welcoming of little ones. Don't go if you want to sit in a quiet bubble with fine dining and sip a wine without any noise or interaction. Every one else should go if they can afford $60 each, it is well worth it.

Definitely a "neighborhood" feel restaurant, as it seemed to be popular with locals. We were impressed with the quality and creativity of the food. The conifer gnocci was amazing. Great place to try some creative menu items.

Had a table at the bar. The barman was friendly. Told me about the restaurant and the origins etc. He was attentive on ordering and water / drinks as well as for the bill. I only had a main which was a good size, very tasty and well cooked. I would recommend. The place was buzzing on a Monday night so clearly popular.

Brought two out of province friends, who raved about the uniqueness of how the food is prepared and presented. And, of course, how deliciously tasty our dishes were. While we shared plates of tuna and the halibut, we agreed that we were happy each of us had our own barbecued duck chowder dish.

My friend and I were in town for a conference and wanted to meet up for an upscale meal in Vancouver. I chose Forage on line, and we were not disappointed. The food (both quality and presentation) was excellent. The service spot on. It is not cheap, and word to the wise -- the plates are more 'sharing' choices than full entrees. So you need to order 4 or 5 for two people. But they were excellent, and well worth the cost.

I've been many times and enjoyed it thoroughly. The food is of high quality, beautifully presented and to me represents excellent value. On the night we dined, however, it was quite busy and the tables were squeezed so close that it was like communal table dining and not really suitable for a date or private conversation.

This particular experinece was a real let down. Ive been to Forage many times and have always enjoyed it but unfrotunatly I cant say anything good about it this time. We were sat right away as we had a reservation but then proceeded to wait 15 minutes to be greeted or even asked if we wanted water. Our server seemed waaaay in over his head. He yook our orders and that was the last we seen of him. Someone else brought our food which was cold and overcooked, no one checked to see if we needed anything and when we wanted to leave we had to get up and go find our sevrer and request our bill.

Forage is tyically a great place, Im not sure if something has changed or if this is a one off bad experience but I would second guess going back and paying $20 for a breakfast plate just for it to be this much of a let down again.

visited from Australia after hearing about it on a TV show.It looked fantastic and thought we would give it a go. We were not disappointed. this is one of the best Restaurants in North America. The food is to die for and the waiter was fantastic. Yes it is quite loud but don't let that stop having a great meal.

Forage is a must-do for foodies! We had the pan bread, asparagus & morels, gnocchi, and rhubarb for dessert. Each was outstanding. Forage is a farm-to-table tapas restaurant, and serves both vegetarians and carnivores alike.

Fantastic food, wine and service. As Europeans really appreciated the portion size and that the vegetables were treated the same as the protein! Only too happy to oblige with an animal milk intolerance.
