Started with the pan bread, followed by the beet salad, ended with the bison. All were absolutely excellent!

Forage is easily my favourite brunch restaurant in all of Vancouver. You could close your eyes and point at the menu and whatever you get it will be good! The ingredients are the highest quality - local, fresh, in -season, and the chefs put so much care into creating and plating the dishes. A testament to the service is the long retention value this restaurant has for its employees. The bill might be slightly higher for this restaurant than just an eggs and toast place, but the prices are very good for what you get. I always get an order of the scones to start, if you like lattes try their homemade cashew milk lattes, the "green juice" is delicious and healthy, and my favourte go-to dishes for brunch are the two rivers turkey sausage hash with roasted vegetables and eggs or the bison hash dish. Call ahead to make a reservation! I'm not the only one that loves this place (or you can always sit at the welcoming counter too).

We had reservations for a party of six on a Friday night. I was excited for the family-style service and liked the menu concept. We enjoyed our meal but everyone at the table agreed that the portions were too small to be shared amongst six people, it was hard to really get more than a taste of each dish. Service was also very slow and inconsistent. Sometimes there would be large gaps between dishes, sometimes multiple dishes would come out at once. Lastly, I was disappointed by the selection of non-alcoholic drinks. They definitely pushed bottles of wine, but when I asked about non-alcoholic beverages from the bar, I was told there was only either ginger beer or seltzer water - not a huge deal but a little disappointing. All in all, we agreed we enjoyed the food but wouldn't dine at Forage again.

I heard about Forage on one of the in-flight videos on Delta Airlines, and figured I give it a try due to the farm-to-fork menu. What a wonderful dining experience; each item I ordered was so flavorful (layers of flavors and textures) and well prepared. I heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The food here is really quite good, however, this is not a fast-food joint. They need to learn to pace the food and drink delivery so people can slowly savor these tasty and nicely presented dishes and have another glasses of wine (or two) while they are enjoying the food.

Food and service was great! Prices and portions are as expected, has delicious vegetarian options that we enjoyed! One interested thing was that it shared a single unisex bathroom with the a more causal restaurant it was next to, which I found it very weird given that restaurant was louder and very sporty. You had to almost leave the restaurant using a heavy glass door to get to the bathroom, which was not very convenient.

We really enjoyed the food, flavor combinations and attention to detail is superb. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The desert was underwhelming in taste but looked very nice. The drink was OK, was expecting a bit more. Duck was amazing but i wish it came wit some sort of vegetables, was missing the balance for very rich meat for me. i was glad that my friend ordered mushrooms so i could get this balance from her dish. Overall was a very nice experience.

Creative local fare, beautifully cooked and presented. Small portions made to share. We ordered 4 plates for 4 people and should have ordered more. Not many carbs on the menu so among your selections order one of the pasta plates. Leave room for dessert, ..small but worth-it! This restaurant should appeal to foodies but not big appetites.

We decided to order our own dishes for main course. We were a group of 6 and everyone’s dinner came out at different times. Not ideal.
Also, it was quite loud and difficult to carry on a conservation.

Dinner was excelleant, except one person at our table had to wait an additional 10-15 mins for her dinner because they made a mistake with her order. We had all finished our dinner by then.
She is celiac but had emailed ahead of time to make sure they could accomadate which they were happy to do

This restaurant was suggested to us by our daughter for a birthday dinner. WOW! It did not disappoint. Our server, Brent, could not have been a more perfect fit for us. He was friendly, attentive, respectful, helpful and humorous to boot! The food was artfully presented and absolutely delicious. We had the yummy pig tails to start, followed by the delectable sablefish, brown butter gnocchi and the bison steak. For dessert, the elderflower and fromage frais cheese puff. We had a bottle of the Pentage red blend and a bottle of the Howling Owl Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon to accompany the food and both were outstanding. After the meal, I asked to speak to the manager, Matthew, to compliment him on the whole spectacular experience, and he was as friendly and welcoming as Brent was. He clearly sets a good example for his staff! We would return in a heartbeat and fully intend to!
