    We were vacationing in Vancouver and picked this restaurant based on reviews and the menu. I was appalled at the service and the lack of concern for the customer. Our waitress (also the manager) was awful and had a terrible attitude. I asked for an order of break with the butter on the side and to be prepared with nothing on it. When it arrived, it was covered with oil and she proceeded to tell me that I didn’t say “no oil”- it’s part of my repertoire- I always say no oil- I can’t eat it. The - when ordering my whole Dungeness crab ($88) I asked for double green beans instead of beans and potatoes. I asked that the beans be steamed with nothing on them. When they were served, they had oil on them- I could tell by the taste, slickness in the feel & then glisten on the skin of the green bean. She basically called me a liar and said there was “nothing she could do for me.” I was so upset- it was the principle of the matter- I couldn’t believe that our waitress was calling me a liar. It wasn’t until my son got a cocktail napkin and rolled a green bean in the napkin to illustrate the grease on the bean to show her that she said she would have another order of green beans prepared. Shocking (typed with sarcasm) they arrived perfectly steamed dry. She wasn’t the server who delivered the new order and never returned to the table- not even to give us the bill- she had someone else do it. And - this was a birthday dinner to celebrate my husband’s 50th. Thanks for ruining it!

    What a great little find! The food was so fresh and delicious, we tried most of the small plates and especially loved the fish tacos and crab cakes. The rose sangria was amazing and all of the staff couldn’t have been friendlier. Oh - and the Fanny bay oysters of course were delicious too :) highly recommend.

    It was OK. Is not a place I would go back to - unless invited. The oyster platter had a sauce I truly enjoyed. It would be nice to have had dish recommendation from the staff.

    Great choice of oysters, good sharing plates and fish & chips was also good. Only downside was food being served very quickly with main course arriving before we were even halfway through starters. Served by three different people and apparently the kitchen “were a bit quick“ - even though they were completely full! Recommended but you need to book

    Go for the Oysters and FEAST on oysters!!!!! Very interesting menu with all sorts of options BUT 12-14 kinds of FRESH oysters and it’s heaven. The shucker was a ninja master. Not a speck of shell in any of 3 dozen beauties. Great flavors! Great varieties. And great bartender making delicious dirty Grey Goose martinis. 6 STARS

    Took my daughter for dinner before a concert at the QE. Booked our table on OpenTable which worked very well. We enjoyed our BC oysters and prawn cocktail very much. My daughter had the prawn salad, which was very fresh and filling. I had a bowl of chowder and we shared the crab cakes. My chowder could have been more of a meal size and I would have preferred oyster crackers instead hard toast, but it was tasty. Crab cakes were great. Bill with 1 Caesar was about $100 so pretty reasonable for a downtown restaurant. Services was excellent, although it was a bit hard to hear as the restaurant was quite noisy.

    We note that quality of food has gone from good to fair- we were early adopters to FBO (since opening). Through the years, imho our favorite items have been removed from the menu. My clam chowder was not as delicious as I remember it (our server explained that the chef changed the recipe), my husband’s vongole was wanting in flavor so he asked for garlic and had to tinker with to enjoy it.

    Usually Aplus plus, but yesterday was an off night. Oysters had shells and there was very little service…had to borrow hot sauce from neighboring table as wait staff just didnt check in. Not going to go for a while.

    Such amazing fresh oysters and seafood, the tuna tartar was off the charts delicious and the grilled octopus had excellent heat in the romesco sauce. Service was always prompt and knowledgeable-I ordered a dozen oysters 6 my choice and 6 theirs and was delightfully surprised. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try a unique seafood experience. The room was busy, hip, happening, bustling on a Friday night so if you like quiet places this may not be for you but I loved it!

    We got the Cajun feast, shishito peppers, a dozen oysters, & pork belly and scallops. Shared between 4 people, it was a decent meal. Would’ve liked some rice but that’s just cause my family’s Asian lmao. Staff was really nice & attentive despite how busy it was. Definitely would come back for the Cajun feast 👌🏽
