    We came back for lunch after enjoying a fabulous dinner here two nights earlier. We only had one more day in Vancouver and wanted to try more of the menu items, as well as repeats of a couple. One of the staff immediately recognized us and greeted us with enthusiasm and warmth. Once again the food was superb.!

    We had just arrived in Vancouver and checked into our lodgings. The first nearby restaurant I considered wasn’t available until quite late. I’m so glad it wasn’t, because Kozak was amazing! Excellent food, beautiful presentation, gracious staff, and moderate prices.

    Really need to go back to try a few more things on the menu. Everything we had was outstanding ~ had to share a couple plates ~ so much to choose from. The authentic borsch soup was certainly worth it by itself. Learned a few things about how to eat traditional soup, which was a neat experience. Highly recommend this wonderful cosy restaurant.

    Thank you for an outstanding evening. The food was authentic with a diverse menu. The staff were friendly, efficient and quick on their feet. The ambience was sophisticated. Considering some of the staff have only been in Vancouver between 1-2 years, the business is a success in my eyes. Дякую.

    Cozy, comforting with a formal service. We loved our date night, we could have a few plates for variety and they all came in even numbers for it was perfect for sharing. We hope to go with a larger group next time to try more! The food was comfort food, but light and well balanced.

    The food was good. But the service needs the improvement. The waitresses are not properly trained . Example: she brought us the main course when we were still working on our appetizers even without askiing. And by the time we started on main course everything was cold already. That way of service also feel us very unwelcomed, like we we forsed to eat fast and leave asap

    Had a fantastic evening seated at the bar, trying different shots and a couple cocktails. The pickled board was a highlight- especially the naturally fermented grape tomatoes! Compliments to the bartender ❤️ she was fantastic and offered me and my friend slices of cranberry bread as accompaniment to the rest of the evening.

    Great authentic Ukrainian food. The bread, salad, and borscht were well done. The politics is a bit too thick for a restaurant. As a Ukrainian and supporter of the Ukrainian independence, the political symbols should be taken down a notch. Let people enjoy the delicious food and service. Slava Ukraina!
