Oddfish is a Seafood and Vegetable focused restaurant. Ethically sourced and high quality ingredients are what you will find here with the focus being on the food - not the fuss. In regard to the wine list - approachable and interesting with a great price point is our goal. The atmosphere is casual and fun. We are a neighbourhood restaurant that others from outside the neighbourhood come to for that welcoming atmosphere. We are the same people who created Nook and Tavola restaurants.

Original delicious and well-prepared food. We enjoyed everything we ordered and although the prices are on the high side, the quality is outstanding. I would heartily recommend this restaurant for a special date or occasion or just simply to splurge on an exceptional meal.

I would recommend for people to go because the food tastes good. But I am not convinced of the value. Pricing is on the high side for what you get. Service was very good as well.

I've been to Oddfish a few times and it's always been great. The service this particular time was not as good as I would have expected. One drink never did come and one appetizer was very late. The food was superb!!

The cuisine is seasoned well...distinctive without being overbearing. The fish still comes through. The ceviche is amazing as are the vegetables. Fish selection abundant and seasonal. The one disappointing dish was the sea bass....not our typical Pacific sea bass.
The staff are very friendly and appreciative of attendance. Them enjoying their work makes the visit have an added bonus!, besides the delicious food. Highly recommended.

Overall we were very pleased with the menu and the flavours of the fish and the vegetables as well as the desserts. As the veggies and salads are share plates I thought they could have been a bit more generous with the portions .

We had a lovely time with our party of 6. Great food, great atmosphere. 4 stars were for the quantity - sharing between 6 meant a bit of each item per person. (Perhaps encouraging double portions?)
Also my husband eats like a champ so even when food is excellent he still needs to eat in quantity to not need a snack when we get home.

The quality of the food was excellemt, especially the oysters. However, the balance of the menu was
unimaginative for the price.

Good atmosphere and delicious food, but that is about where the positives end. The portions are very small for how much they charge. The server was not very attentive to our table nor were they helpful in helping us choose our meal. They didn't even know the daily special without looking at the chalkboard behind them. This place has a lot of potential, but it needs to have a higher standard of service a greater value for the price point.

My first time there but my friend has been there a few times. Good selection of fresh seafood and sharing plates. Food was quite tasty but the portions are on the smaller side so be prepared to order quite a few plates if you're hungry. It's on the pricier side but I'm willing to pay a bit more for quality over quantity. Overall, I thought it was quite good and would go again.

Beet salad with goat cheese, pistachios and avacado was fantastic starter. Split a one pound Sea Bass with two spices, also delicious. Dessert: Salted Carmel Pot and Olive Oil Cake with peaches, perfect!
Very attentive and knowledgeable wait staff.

Oddfish is a really special spot. It is so clear that the chef takes pride in the food and always has the freshest fish. The specials are innovative and the menu was almost too good, ate too much! Bartender and wait staff all very welcoming, especially as a solo diner. Felt very comfortable there and would recommend Oddfish to anyone in Vancouver. Will be returning.

Our top meal during a long weekend in Vancouver. Four dinner guests so we got to taste many different dishes, all well prepared & tasty. Creative cocktails (that we are trying to replicate at home) and spot on recommendations from our server. We'll be back.

We had an exceptionally good meal at Odd Fish. The service was friendly and welcoming and although we were first arrivals at 5.15, the restaurant was full and buzzing by 6.00. We will definitely return the next time we are in Kitsilano.

Always great at Oddfish, such good service and what a selection of specials! My only quibble: are the portions getting smaller? Our burrata and pea puree was its usual deliciousness but the portion of cheese was pretty slim.
The chili garlic crab was stupendo:)
