Seafood
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.

    We are visiting Vancouver for just a few days and wanted some fresh/local/non-mainstream seafood. The food we had was just breathtakingly fresh, tender and amazing. The fact that the menu changed so frequently was a good sign for me. We had the crudo tasting (feature of the day) and it was some of the best seafood I’ve ever had. Highly recommend this place, worth the Uber!

    Food was fantastic, and the menu left us wanting to come back to try everything else. Alot of restaurants could run you up a bill and end up leaving unsatisfied for the price, however while this isnt cheap, I was very happy paying what I paid.

    I ordered the mussels, which were good, but the broth was too spicy. I was disappointed as I had asked the waiter about this before I ordered. Also, it was too noisy!

    We went for our anniversary dinner and loved it. The food was so fresh and creative. The burrata with minted peas and grilled sourdough was a standout. Wine was superb. Our server was attentive and charming. Want to go back to try their always changing menu. Highly recommend for a special night out.

    Love this restaurant. Yummy food and drinks. However, we found the music too loud and we felt we were yelling at each other during our conversations. Otherwise, a gem of a restaurant - good service too!

    We sat in the covered patio area which can be very noisy if nearby diners have loud voices. Not ideal for hearing aid wearers. Food is very good but portions small. Prices are ‘aggressive’ but the fairly full resto suggests people feel it is worth it. We ate early and ended up snacking at home that evening. Tried a fab domaine de la Combe Muscadet which is unfortunately sold out in stores. Will return with guests but may have an appetizer at home first.

    Food was excellent, a tad over sauced on the spot prawns & oysters. Fries were excellent as was the Gai Lan (Chinese broccoli)- good to see a veggie so commonly found in Vancouver grocery stores featured on the menu! Wine was inordinately expensive! And, the overall tab was high, however the quality of the food, knowledgeable server, Scott and pleasant ambience evens things out. Indeed, a fine dining experience !
