My boyfriend and I went to La Brass for the first time for my birthday. Everyone was very friendly. The food selection is good. We tried the bone marrow which was okay. We had the spiced anchovies and pate and both were delicious. The lamb rack and steak were also very tasty. The prices are decent and the amount of food is just right. We had a very pleasant dinner.

Excellent food. Friendly service. I loved my salmon main course. The fish was moist and the skin crispy. I wish there are more restaurants like this — fantastic food, good service, pleasant setting, and neither too casual or too formal. And easy parking in the area!

Thanks for the hard working chef/servers who worked on Christmas Eve night. Thanks also our server 'Jenny' who was professional, smart and friendly. We had a great time at La Brass, we definitely will visit again.

I love this little neighborhood restaurant. The crab cakes weren't as good this time as before but the wine suggestion was much better than what I was going to order. The service is top notch. Their salads are lovely and fresh.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at La Brass.... we were greeted in a very relaxed and pleasant fashion. The room is very comfortable ( not too crowded ) I had the Ling Cod special and it was outstanding...cooked to perfection. My wife had the pork back-ribs special. The sauce (not a southern BBQ) was wonderful but after sampling one of the ribs I thought they were a bit dry. My wife raved about he vegetables. We will be going back with friends in a few weeks.

Was there twice in one week & enjoyed every moment of it. Just a thought, but what about the furniture i.e. table/chairs being a wee bit darker in the wood color. Maybe would make the room a litle richer & warmer. Or the alternative table cloths?? Maybe you do for dinner time, I've just been for lunch, but looking forward to a dinner meal.

Food excellent. Two problems. First - very noisy. Needs acoustic ceilings. Second, for an expensive restaurant, some of the tables are far too close together, mainly the tables for two on the left.

Our second friends' get-together at this lovely restaurant and again delicious with fantastic service. The two servers were amicable, attentive and very professional. The food is excellent quality and a very good value for what you receive: all freshly sourced and cooked. The mushroom soup was heavenly and the crab croquettes were yummy. The wine list offers really great pairings. Fantastic lunch experience!

The food was cold, the bone marrow was under cooked, the squid ink pasta was one of the worst I had have in my life, completely over cooked and looks like instant ramen noodles. Such a bad experience the manager didn't even ask what was wrong. The only great thing was the lady that was attending us.

The food was well above what I've come to expect from Vancouver French Bistro, and the service was attentive and engaging while staying clear of cloying. Good range of choices on the menu, including the usual suspects, but also extending the range. Everything was cooked with precision. My bouillabaisse had a great broth, stronger than some I've had, and the seafood was plump and soft, not cooked to death. All four of us said we will be back again; in fact, we've already made arrangements to do so.

This location used to be Provence restaurant, but it has changed hands. It still serves fine quality French cuisine, as well as French-inspired items (I don't believe ravioli is traditional French fare, but they make it French by having a wild-mushroom filling, and serving it with essentially a beurre blanc sauce with small diced tomatoes - so delicious!). The rack of lamb was superb, and the warm and lightly crisp clafoutis at the end of the meal left me and my party wanting another one! Delcious food, simple but classic and classy décor, and friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Our visit to La Brass was an unexpected delight. At the end of a day trip to Vancouver, we grabbed a last minute reservation for dinner. Upon arrival, the restaurant appeared quite formal and staid. However, the menu was promising and the service was positively charming. We ordered several dishes to share, including the beet soup, calamari salad, mussels, and anchovies. Every dish was perfectly sublime! The ingredients were fresh, presentation was elegant, and -most importantly- every bite was delicious.

At the end of our meal, the manager (owner?) Marc came over to chat with us. If the food hadn't already won us over, he would have on his own. Such a lovely person with exciting plans for La Brass. It seems the atmosphere is a bit of a holdover from the restaurant's previous incarnation, and will soon be updated.

La Brass is most definitely on our to-revisit list whenever we are in town.

We're very lucky to have this wonderful restaurant in our 'hood. Incredible food- fresh and cooked to perfection. Dessert - wow! Nice selection of wines. Staff - knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. Tad noisy: table next to us engaged in very spirited conversation but that settled when the food arrived. Very enjoyable evening overall.

La Brass is cozy and convenient to those living anywhere from Kits to UBC. The service is discreet and efficient and the food well-prepared and tasty. The cost is reasonable and the menu, while not extensive, contains sufficient variety to satisfy different tastes. A most enjoyable dining experience.

Nice neighbourhood gem replaced Provence Mediterranean Grill. Food, service, quality still very good. Lunch mains a bit pricey, same as dinner prices. $6 for half a baguette? But overall food very well cooked especially their seafood, very good berry cafloutti for dessert. A lemon or some type of citrus tarte would be nice. Wine list not overly broad but then it is a small restaurant. Heavy on BC and French wines.

First time since Provence closed. It was great. Food exceptional, service superb. My husband had a lentil soup with tomato. Said it's about the best he's ever had. He went on to an omelet. Perfectly done. The waiter recommended the beef tagliatelle. It was superb. We will definitely go back. We live in Tsawwassen and it Is certainly worth the drive.
