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.

The food was excellent, we got a good advise from the waitress, cozy, quiet sitting outside under the heater to avoid the inside noise.

Service is always fantastic. Love the relaxed vibe of the staff. All look put together, but seemingly have no set uniform, which adds to the cozy, low key vibe. Food is always on point, service is excellent ...can I say more?

Excellent fish and seafood, a bit pricy but fair for the high quality of products served. Lots of daily specials with knowledgeable, friendly staff to help with explanations and recommendations. Nice wine list with excellent suggestions from Todd. Place has a great vibe, and lots of people seem happy to be seated at the bar. Can get A bit noisy during peak periods but not too bad. Overall, great place to spend a couple of hours eating well.

Fine and delicious. Outstanding food and perfect service! In Europe, the food would deserve one star.
Expensive but worth it.
Sometimes noisy if big groups are there but it rarely happens.

We enjoyed our recent dinner very much, however we considered the portions as too small.
The selection of wines by the glass was very good.

Excellent restaurant! We went for my partner´s birthdate and it was wonderful. The food is kind of tapas, so you can share everything. The service was friendly and very professional. Definitely will go back!

We ordered about 7 plates, plus two desserts for 5 of us to share. I really enjoyed their scallops they were cooked perfectly. We ordered both the clams and mussels, but I would say that I prefer the mussels more. We ordered the chocolate pot de creme and a lemon meyer dessert, both desserts were delicious, and so tasty. Overall a really good experience, but portions are small.

Excellent food as always. Friendly service but just slow to get attention/order in/find out what specials are. Either not staffed enough for a Saturday night or not enough people on the floor the day we came? (7pm dinner) Worth it though once server did come and food came out in reasonable time afterwards. Super fresh, super tasty food!

This is my fave restaurant. Great space, friendly service, all the dishes are tasty and interesting. We had them bring us almost everything from the blackboard. The mushroom caramelli with fried sage in a brown butter sauce was out of this world

The only reservation we had was that the ventilation is inadequate. When we left, we literally reeked of kitchen grease which is frustrating to those that are going to carry on with an evening. The food, service and wine list were great.

Amazing waiter. He was like a knowledgeable friend. Great food - we were lucky enough to sit out in the heated patio area and with blankets and the overhead heater it was perfect. Cozy. Even though it was a cool evening it was nice and so much quieter than the main restaurant. We'll be back for sure!!!

We had the most perfect evening at Oddfish recently. From the warm reception at the door to the attentive, inspired and professional staff throughout - let alone the fact that our meal was outstanding. From the beautiful room, to the perfect amount of bustle and sounds - it was truly a memorable experience and everything a grand night out should be (even though we had to start at 5:30!).

A favourite whenever we visit Vancouver. This time we tried the octopus carpaccio which was fantastic plus our favourites the ceviche and tuna tacos.

Service is relaxed and friendly - but professional and knowledgeable. Will be back soon.

All was good, but it was disappointing that our table location was not ideal... close to the bathroom... especially since we had reserved a table so free in advance...

Also- I was really hoping for more crab and lobster dishes, since I’m not a huge fan of mussels or clams....
Overall it was good though.

At our request, we were seated in the cozy outdoor space, which is much quieter than the rest of the venue. We are older, as are the friends we took there; and they have hearing aids, so we are constantly looking for places where we can hear each other. They were friendly, gave us lots of attention, and turned the heater down the moment we requested it. We all love the food!

From the moment we arrived at the restaurant the customer service was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful, not only to us and the other patrons, but also to each other. They seemed to be having a great time at work and this added to the all ready positive atmosphere of the place. The food was amazing and obviously prepared with thought and love. The cocktail drinks were delightful and had a unique and flavourful twist of their own. I would recommend Oddfish to anyone, even if they just went for drinks and appies! Another thing that really stood out was the fact that the patrons were of all ages and from all walks of life. To me this says that Oddfish creates an inclusive atmosphere with beautiful drinks, dishes and decor that everyone can enjoy.
