We were hoping for a quiet dinner overlooking Stanley Park. Instead, the room was way too noisy when we arrived - with blasting rock music playing over the sound system. Fortunately, a guitarist started his gig after we had been seated about 10 minutes -- but the sound system was way to loud to permit conversation. We found some menu items to be overpriced -- others just right.

Keep the table waiting staff and sack the chief. We ordered battered fish and chips, the batter was soft and thick couldn't have seen a hot deep fat fryer.
Take your money to the Greek restaurant in town., that was very good.

Took my mom here for mother's day. Food was great. Only thing that was disappointing was that the fresh chilled juices were not included even though it was advertised as included in the Mother's Day Brunch.

My husband and I reserved here for our wedding anniversary. We were very happy that they reserved a table for us right by the window so we can look out at the water. The service was great and the food was amazing! My husband ordered steak but kept taking my chicken mushroom penne which was quite a big dish. We polished that off, no problem! lol Will definitely go back for like an afternoon date. Thanks again!

Overall a decent experience. We tried the Groupon menu, and we all started off with the prawn cocktail. The prawns were pretty good and huge. I ordered the filet mignon, it was well grilled and medium rare as ordered. However, the pasta was a bit bland and dry. The desserts were not very memorable.

I ordered Tuna Poke and it was not good. The tuna was almost like beef jerky in that it was cooked and chewy. Made me think they had just chopped up an old tuna steak and put it in my entree.

Food in general tastes good. Chowder is too salty n not warm enough/ a bit cold.
Main course is good, quantity is on the lower side.

I don’t usually write reviews but this dine out experience out of my six others stood out so much. The waiter was so down to earth and genuine, he gave us food recommendations and told us if we aren’t satisfied with the dessert, we could have the other for free. Of course we didn’t ask for it but the fact he always came back to check and genuinely started conversations with us all the time plus actually good food, this restaurant was remarkable. Did I also mention, the live music was great! My three other friends and I were very impressed and had a good time. Thank you P2b!

P2b Bistro provided us a delicious dinner with dine out Vancouver menu that had good quality and quantity. Not like some restaurants, the dine out menu was less expensive by trading out the entree with smaller food portion. We order the Lobster chowder, Artic Char, beef, desserts. The Lobster chowder contains real Lobster meat. Artic Char came with asparagus and other veggies. The slow cook beef was tender with good presentation. Both creme brulee and pecan pie were tasty. The lady server treated us well with enjoyable dinner. P2b Bistro well presented the dine out Vancouver festival. I recommend them to someone have tried yet.

Waited 50 minutes for food, no one came to let us know what was going on. Chef personally delivered food & apologized. Still upset about the amount of time we had to wait.

Our company of 4 friends tried out this Bistro for the Vancouver dine-out. Ambience was good and not noisy. We all ordered the Lobster Chowder which we all find too salty and it came abit on the cool side as the waiter had told us it will not be hot as the lobster will lose their taste if it is served hot. The Artuc Char entree was tasty and for dessert we had Pecan Pie with the pistachio gelato which is good with some crunch of some salted pistachio sprinkled on the plate. Special thanks to our waiter who made our evening more delightful : he is very attentive and we appreciate his service and recommendations. We will definitely return to try their Happy hour.

I celebrated my birthday with my family here, and we got the three-course prix fixe menu. We all agreed that the food was great, and the portions were just right.

Our server was helpful, providing tips about the food as necessary for us to enjoy our meal. P2B was also gracious about us being late for our reservation due to massive traffic in Vancouver (we came from Surrey and Pitt Meadows).

Overall, I highly recommend P2B.

They couldn't honor our reservation. When we asked for a newly cleared table, they sat down a walkin. Then we asked for another empty table, they advised us that it was reserved. It was almost like they didn't care that they failed to honour our reservation.
