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!!!
Really made for a great night out. Friendly expert service and all excellent, creative dishes from the kitchen. Will be back with friends soon!
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.
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.
Great attentive service. Small tasty dishes. Host and waitress were great, describing dishes and making recommendations.
Very loud. Overly priced for portion size. Food was tasty and good. Service was good.
We really enjoy good seafood and find the vegetable options at Oddfish are also very well done. Service is very friendly. It is quite noisy when the place is full but we would still recommend it.
The Hot Seafood Mess was excellent as usual and well complemented by the roasted cauliflower. The chocolate mousse is to die for!
Staff treated us enthusiastically, room has a nice vibe, food was incredible, especially the butterflied rainbow trout.
The server sat down at the table with us and with other guests for 15 minutes explaining the menu. It was intrusive and she had no sense of personal space. Felt really awkward. Otherwise terrific!!
Loved the food and the service! Will definitely return!
delicious food, unique menu and family style dining (sharing) is a lot of fun. This is a high energy restaurant at dinner, great ambience but abit noisy.
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.
This was my third visit and looking forward to my fourth.
We just absolutely loved this restaurant. First time there. Highly recommend it. The food was spectacular. I couldn’t stop telling people about it. Had a great time with friends.
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.
The food was a bit pricey. But delicious! I highly recommend the hot mess!
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!!
Every bite was a taste sensation. The appetizers. The vegetables. The fish. We loved it.
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.
Always amazing. The spicy squid is one of my favourite dishes in city!
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.
Great experience , highly recommended
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.
