The Bison Board Experience at forage
Book your spot for two quickly, as they go fast. There’s a total of 10 seats on Saturdays 6pm only.
Very skimpy portions of bison for the price. Bartenders too busy mixing drinks to provide much service. Overall a disappointing experience.
I had been looking forward to a visit to Forage for 2 years after finding them on Instagram. My boyfriend and I decided to make the trip into Vancouver to celebrate both our birthday's + 1 year anniversary as they all occur in the same week. Our server/bartender was great - knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and professional. Unfortunately however, despite our reservation for the Bison Board experience our food ended up taking well over an hour to come out. The server brought us out a Bison carpaccio after 45 minutes of waiting to apologize which was the best thing we ate all night. A couple sat next to us shortly before we got our board and they got one the same time as us. The board was VERY underwhelming, especially for $160. The pasta dish tasted like hamburger helper - really lacked any creativity and we felt the cheese served on top was a poor pairing as the dish lacked flavor. The rest of the board was OK, but still lacked the creativity I was longing for at Forage. The server noted our disappointment and offered a taste of some ice wine which again was nice but did not save the experience for us. Forage seemed like a unique experience from following them online but fell short once we got to visit.
