Being French myself, I was absolutely impressed with the authentic french cuisine served to us. I went there for brunch the first time and the croque-madame was to die for. 2 days later I went back for dinner and had moules et frites. To my surprise they were even better than the ones I cook! Keep up the good work guys and you will see me often.

Not a very good experience on Valentine’s Day for 3 girls. Firstly, I was not a big fan of a set menu option. $60 for a 3 course meal was not worth it here. Secondly, the steak entree I got was overly salted, and they even cooked my rare steak a medium. There was no redness in my steak. But on the other hand, my friends steak was too rare for her. So in my assumption they must’ve switched our plates up. Servers were kind of giving off a bad vibe that day. They kept hitting my friends chair and my friend was annoyed. I wasn’t really happy that I had to get my food re-did while my friends were eating. We all consumed so much water that night because of our salty food. The appetizers was actually not bad and it was probably the only thing we enjoyed. For dessert , we got creme brûlée and that wasn’t even that good... I probably would never come back. Unfortunately I was disappointed.

Have been a long time fan of this restaurant and had not been for a couple of years - WOW WHAT A DECLINE !

food was average and overpriced - very uninspired - waitress was quite pretentious and clearly didn’t want to help us ..


In addition the restaurant was empty - and they accused
Me of not showing up for my reso? This was fixed after OpenTable contacted me but man ... what a bad experience and I won’t be back ... way better places for that kind of money

We ended up a smaller group then anticipated - no problem. We cancelled the reservation and sat at the bar - no problem. We mentioned we had to get in and out quickly - no problem. Staff was friendly - food was great. Highly recommend this place and will come again when we have more time to savour the experience.

Made a reservation the day before for 5 people and they were completely unprepared for us. Luckily it wasn't very busy at on Sunday for Brunch around 12:30 and they added an extra seat to a table of 4. Then they moved us to a bigger table when the place emptied out. Overall not particularly impressed by the service or food and especially by the lack of awareness of the reservation. Why even be on this site if you don't check. Food was ok but overpriced and small portions

La Brasserie has been one of my favorites since they opened, but had not been in a few years. Everything was as I remembered but the service was horrible - the server was pleasant enough but was not paying attention to empty glasses or attentive at all. We would have liked wine with our meal after pre-dinner cocktails but didn't come over to ask. This was disappointing as we were there celebrating our birthdays and I expected much more based on my many previous dining experiences here.

We were there 4 years ago on vacation and I researched my old visa charges to recall the name. We were again vacationing in Vancouver so returned to the restaurant. It was exactly as I remembered it. Excellent ambience great service and mussels that were as big as golf balls and melted in your mouth! One of my favorite restaurants in the world. Prices are very reasonable and the neighborhood is festive and fun.

We've never had a bad meal here. The service is always top notch, and so is the food. The same items have been on the menu for years, but they have changed slightly over time. Their steak frites is amazing! One of the best places on Davie, bar none.

We had a craving for moules frites and they delivered. Bread and vegetable sides come with plenty of butter.

It's always a treat at la brasserie

Nice little Restaurant which tries to cook french, but does not succeed.
Salade Nicoise was a very small affair without anchovis (?) and the tuna was hidden in a sauce (?). Definetly to tiny to share.
The mussels were big ones but a little on the downside from freshness to muffy.
The mousse au chocolat (very small again) was served together with peanutbutter!!!!, what a great shame, that should be done never.
Alltogether we spent for two with a bottle of rose' wine nearly 170$, that was not worse it.

It was my birthday. We were sat next to a crying child. The waitress never smiled once
she obviously didn't like what she was doing. Overall we didn't enjoy the evening

Looked forward to dining here, but they must have changed ownership. The best thing on the menu, mushrooms with spaetzle, was gone. The veal was overcooked and tough. The chicken was dry. Just not the same. Won't be returning.

I must say I was so surprised by our dinner. We were challenged to find a restaurant Not participating in Dine Out and found this on Open Table. The food was amazing! Especially notable were the mussels and the steak tartar. Wow; the best I've had anywhere of both those things. I had the lamb cheeks, braised and very rich and tasty; the carrot and potato mash was excellent.. My son had the veal and it was a bit disappointing. I think staying true to the french cuisine would be the recommendation.
