We had a great spread with expertly paired wines (we said surprise us and it was perfect!) The beef carpaccio and gniocci were life changing, I would come back again just for those dishes!
Interesting ingredients but flavors were just OK. Service was friendly but not very attentive. Whatever.
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.
Wow! Really wonderful food and service, and everything is local. We were really surprised when the bill came as it was so low for how much we got!
Food was very good, service was spotty, but we were obviously not part of the trendy crowd they were looking to attract. They took the use of BC products to a bit of an extreme. No spirits or wine that were not local. Spending this amount of money you want the kind of wine you like. As far as the food, the halibut was good, but the aesthetic appeal was poor. The shade of green of the vegetable used for the purée did not make it look appealing at all.
Excellent food to share. Interesting menu with good choice. Grilled asparagus and morels was excellent as was the halibut.
Our server Sebastian was one of the best waiters ever! The food was really interesting and tasty... even my hard to please chef husband was raving. Definitely a go!
Best restaurant I’ve ever eaten at, especially for local and native ingredients. This is not a pretender!
Top notch from start to finish!
Outstanding culinary experience. Excellent, friendly, helpful service. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed!
EE lent food and service waiter suggestions important as for quantities
Really lovely menu with interesting, fresh dishes. So many delicious options to choose! The gnocchi and duck were standouts.
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.
As always the food experience was interesting and the service efficient and pleasant
Service was slow... Food is very good... The food runner just left our foods on table and run away!
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.
Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was good. Excessively noisy room was the only downside. We’ll be back again soon.
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.
Wonderfully tasty food. Rich and delicious. Great locally sourced ingredients! Will be coming back!
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 pork loin in a great setting with a friendly team. Care for the ingredients and focus on quality really shines through!
Our server was incredibly knowledgeable and came by just often enough to ensure we were good, but never hassled or interrupted. Great quality food. Great recommendations.
Great food . Service was wonderful and the homemade tomato sauce was amazzzzing
Everything was excellent. Very creative menu. Fun to share various items Bison was delicious as was honey bread
Amazing food! We had a great culinary experience. We both really enjoy going out for nice dinners and this was the best we have ever had.
I loved everything about Forage except for the noise level. The quality of the food was exceptional and our server was excellent.
Everything we ordered was absolutely dynamite! Try the mushroom toast! It’s what I came for! Monashee Coffee Cream could take a pass on next time but everything else was great!
Wonderful food and service. Inventive breakfast
The service was a bit fast amd we did not want to share. But really enjoy our time together
Great food. Outstanding Service. Restaurant is small, so ensure you make reservations. Food is meant to share. Truly accommodating with my dietary restriction and was able to modify accordingly. Recommend to all.
My go to place .
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.
Delicious and inventive food. They were able to accommodate various food restrictions for our larger party. A wonderful spot especially to take folks from out of town.
