Food was excellent but even with a few tables open we constantly felt like staff was rushing us which impacted on the ability to fully relax
Great fun as we came into a happy, busy restraunt. Service was good, mussels and a serving of chips to share as suggested were excellent. Decided to share the Octopus. Bad choice, think you should rethink that dish, very little overdone octopus, plus sauce etc. Very poor value. Was surprised and pleased that that dish price was taken off our bill.
Will love to try again and be more adventuresome re some choices. All in all good fun., a bit too loud, but seems all places are like that now.Thanks JW
We love the restaurant, the servers and the food. We do find it very loud and the last 3 times we went with other couples everyone commented it was not a great place to have easy conversation. To the point that we will likely only go when it is just the two os us.
A few sound absorbing panels would allow for good energy but the ability to have great conversations.
Had another great evening at Oddfis
Food was amazing! The pasta special was beyond compare
As special thank you to Patrick who shared some dining tips with us
Truly a great evening!
Over priced and tasteless... Will not go again..... Lots of preggers restos on Main by example which out class this one and priced reasonably.......
The shared seafood dishes were delicious especially the whole fish! Service was laid back and servers were very friendly. Only thing is the price was a little high, though I would highly recommend Oddfish!
We had a wonderful evening tucked away in a corner of the restaurant. The staff are terrific and certainly know everything about the menu. They are courteous and fun......
The food is gorgeous. All sorts of fresh fish which changes daily and was beautifully cooked. You can get tapas sizes or a main meal. The noise level is fine..." can actually chat and hear each other,
It is not a cheap restaurant but we thought it was worth it. Of course we did have a nice bottle of
Chablis and they’re not the cheapest!
Would definitely go back. Recommend as a special night not a ‘pop round the corner because I’m hungry night’!
Very clean, friendly service, super fresh seafood. Octopus a bit overdone. Excellent wine/cocktail. Will be back.
Delicious as always, very welcoming, fun atmosphere. Great bubbly and wine options. Spaghetti with crab and uni is a standout every time! One small quibble, many bones in our sea bass, took away from the pure pleasure of eating it, and unusual in my experience. Salted caramel dessert another option thats impossible to resist. Excellent service from entire staff.
Always a charming experience with lots of amazing dishes to try and share. Arguably the best seafood restaurant in Vancouver.
Great place, very tasty food. Highly recommended!
Absolutely amazing!! Incredible menu, ambiance and service
Very over-priced for the size of the servings, especially the Seafood Hot Mess which is adequately named since there was no effort whatsoever to make the presentation appealing. The main cooking ingredient seems to be butter, and everything was literally swimming in it. Very noisy once all the tables are full. Very good waitstaff - ours was quite knowledgeable about the wine selections and wine regions of France.
Service very good, wait staff accommodating and friendly. Fun and trendy. Food very good and tasty BUT portions are small to moderate and getting a bit pricey for what you receive.
Oddfish has a relaxed neighbourly feel, great for dropping in for an hour or so.
This was my first time there and I was expecting excellent food as I had heard many raves about it from friends. The scallops and creamed cauliflower was a good combo, and the cauliflower delicious.
I shared the carrots and the brussel sprouts dishes. They would have been perfect with less sauces and other accompaniments, e.g. too many dates in the brussel sprouts dish making it just too sweet. And I do love sweets but this was too much for me. So what I hoped would be a nice light fish and veggie meal turned out to be quite heavy. My husband enjoyed his flat iron steak. Everything was well timed and our waiter attentive. I have heard that recently the food hasn't been as good as before so I plan to give it a try another time.
Amazing food, ambience and service. The most friendly staff ever.
We enjoyed our meal and the total dining experience at Oddfish. Cocktails were excellent, the food was fresh and very good and service was outstanding.
Outstanding. We’ll definitely be back.
Made us come at 5:30 when it was quiet there til at least 6:30. Placed our orders and they all came in ten minutes. Too much of a rush.
Best food, best service....outstanding!!
Oddfish has amazingly great food and superb service. The wait staff are super friendly and fun. The food speaks for itself, super tasty and delicious but the staff makes the experience fantastic. Never had a bad meal or experience at any of their restaurants.
Great for sharing plates! Great vibes! Great service!
We all had a great time!
Grilled seafood was yummy and roasted Brussel Sprouts were tasty.
Great food and service
Food and service were fantastic. Been here before so I was looking forward to coming back. Heard great things about the HOT MESS so wanted to try it. It’s a special written on the black board. The dish was delicious however when we got the bill both me and my guest were surprised because we both saw the board (written in chalk) and read the price as $55 but when we received the bill we found out it was actually $85. Anyway it appears the chalk was just a bit faded so the 8 looked like a 5. The food is fantastic but it was definitely a bit of a surprise when we got the bill. Had we known we probably would have ordered something else (more than we were looking to spend on a single dish).
Everything about Oddfish exceeded expectation. Food is innovative, perfectly portioned and full of flavour. Nothing ordinary here! Service is perfectly dialed in and an excellent wine list with fair pricing makes this a great place for dining.
Great fresh fish and oysters. Best was crudo/ceviche/oysters /other fresh grilled fish/all raw options.
FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IN VANCOUVER!! Delicious food and awesome atmosphere!!
We booked a late table for 3 after theatre and were warmly greeted and very well served. The menu offers an interesting choice of diverse seafood and other dishes and was perfect for our occasion. Oddfish was a welcome addition to the neighbourhood and it remains dependable and well worth visiting.
It is our third trip to Oddfish. Last time we swore we would never fo back due to our server. We went again and were delighted to have another friendly, attentive, yet not hovering server. We never felt rushed this visit.
Our food was delicious, our favourite is the Burrata appies. It varies with season but always amazing.
It is quite noisy which we find hard to talk with another couple, but that seems to be the trend.
We will definitely so back!
The kitchen here has been putting out fresh and tasty fish and seafood consistently since opening. Really friendly servers seem genuinely happy to make sure you have an enjoyable evening. Great vibe here. Perfect place to enjoy dinner in Vancouver, rain or shine or more rain. Personal favourite menu items: French fries, roasted cauliflower, and crab cakes when available. Have not had any dish here that I didn’t like, and have eaten here more than 20 times. To me this is the star of the Tavola/Nook empire.
I absolutely love Oddfish and recommend it to all my friends. It has a great menu, great hospitality with friendly but not overly chatty service, and high quality food. My only complaint is the price of some dishes. For example, the burrata special was $26 for a tiny portion of burrata, and some seasonal vegetables. The burrata and prosciutto at nook in kits (owned by the same people?) is $20 and it is a bigger portion, and includes prosciutto!!
Love the whole family of restaurants! Nook, Tavola and Oddfish - all outstandstsnding with amazing staff.
Just a tad bit loud..... everything else was GREAT!!!
Inventive and delicious food with wonderful and attentive service. I took my sister here for her birthday and we loved everything about this place. It's pricey but you get what you pay for.
Really made for a great night out. Friendly expert service and all excellent, creative dishes from the kitchen. Will be back with friends soon!
Top-notch service and a seafood only menu made for a memorable experience. Recommend!
We had an excellent evening, good food, service & ambience. We will certainly be back.
First time - waitress was excellent. Drew up a chair and explained everything ( after serving us our very pricey martinis1)
We ordered everything without onion - no problem, much appreciated. Loved the food, her suggestions were very good. We hope to return .
Sorry we were late - long story, wet night, testy phone! Thanks for the warm welcome.
Very loud. Overly priced for portion size. Food was tasty and good. Service was good.
