It was our first visit to the Stable House, we will return. My wife has some food issues and the server and chef went well beyond in accommodating her. The wine by the glass offerings were great and reasonably priced considering the calibre of vineyards. Our dinner and appetizers were also outstanding, great flavour, healthy and very reasonably priced again.

An interesting and diverse menu of sharable plates. Some unique wines that you don't see on most wine lists. Great service and friendly explanations of the menu items. We shared three plates, one small, one medium and one large and it was enough food for two with a bit of room left for a shared dessert. The noise level was a bit higher than one would want for quiet conversation, but we were seated in the middle of the room at a high top table so it might be quieter in the lower seating. Prices were reasonable and the portions represented good value. We were going to the Stanley after dinner for a play; the food arrived promptly and we had lots of time with a 6:00 reservation. THe room was full shortly after we arrived so reservations are a must!

This is my new fav place on South Granville. Went for happy hour with friends and liked it so much I went back with another friend for brunch the day after. Avocado toast was delicious but definitely could have used a salad as it looked a bit bereft on the plate by itself. The waiter was friendly without being intrusive.

Great dining for pre-theatre. Love the small, medium, large plates menu plus board choices. Easy to share and mix the small and medium plates. Seasonal food with a touch of flair in presentation but not over the top. More than enough choics for a glass of wine.
A very European Bistro with friendly, efficient service and the Bistro reflects local history of the area.
We were four diners and three of us shared the apple pie dessert in a jar. It was delicious and if it is offered on our next visit, we all will have our own jar.
A very pleasant evening.

We had fabulous service and enjoyed our evening out, which is very rare! The food was delicious but I thought the portions were a tad small for the price -- however I would not hesitate to frequent this restaurant. Very nice atmosphere for a date or some time out with friends. Quiet enough to have a good conversation, and not be heard by those at tables nearby. We've been to this restaurant before and have enjoyed wonderful service, and delicious food each time.

The vibe here is great and the wine list is small, tight and interesting, with many options by the glass

Service is prompt and unfussy and the music they were playing - George Harrison, war on drugs - was awesome

While we like the ambiance of this pleasant neighborhood restaurant, and appreciate the price range, we were disappointed with several dishes. To top it off, we decided to try a dessert described on the menu as cheesecake, lemon curd and strawberry. In fact, the only lemon curd and strawberry on the plate were 4 small dots of each that could only be described as garnish at best. For $11 it was overpriced and misleadingly described.

Food was interesting and well displayed. Servings are more pretty than plentiful, come to enjoy but not to fill up. Best to share orders so that you get a spread of different tastes.
The music was a tad loud for an older pre-theatre crowd. I know old people always say this! But if you are managing a restaurant and 70% of your crowd is OBVIOUSLY over 65 on a Thurs night ...Turn it down! Everyone was leaning way in to hear each other, and also squinting at the Menu board and at the menus!
That being said our server was lovely, read the board out loud to us and checked on us regularly.

I picked for our Valentines lunch. My hubby is very picky with restaurants and he was quite satisfied. myself like their selection of wines and a lot of rare ones too. Food is good. Their signature is cheese maybe because almost all dishes have cheeses? Loved the Onion Soup. Place is cozy. The young server was great! People were nice. Will go again with kids.

Good knowledgeable service, not intrusive but checked in several times. Made good suggestions. Restaurant was quiet, but it was a Monday night. We shared a few items and a nice bottle of bubbly, ending with a shared desert and cappuccinos. Leisurely and enjoyable, will definitely do it again.

I was very impressed with the food and ambience. Very relaxed and not pretentious. Good value. My only complaint is that we had to ask about the daily specials and there were several of them noted on the menu. We also probably would've ordered some brunch cocktails if they had been offered.

Was looking for something different before a concert, but had to book a 5:30PM reservation, which meant the place was almost empty when we arrived. We let the server recommend items for the medium charcuterie plate and all of our "large"plate items were on the smallish side but incredibly good and with great presentation. With a bottle of wine included I would say the prices were moderate for our meal, and it is such a lovely bistro interior I would definitely recommend and return!

The food is not bad, but the portions are small. Not great value. I do like the ambience, although that could be improved as well by turning the volume down on the music so people can talk without having to strain to hear each other.
