Contemporary American
The origin of The Story Café emerged from the mantra “There is a story in everything”
So in 2018 when we fell upon a 30 year old warehouse, we saw the potential to transform the abandoned space into a warm, hospitable, unique eatery. Through consistent innovation, research and dedication we managed to blend our affinity for coffee, music, food and antique into a ambient mélange of vintage and nostalgia. Today, we proudly present our eatery to newcomers and are considered a staple in the Richmond community!

We are excited to share with you that our restaurant has been voted for the OpenTable Diners’ Choice 2023 award for multiple categories in Vancouver! This prestigious award is a testament to our commitment to providing exceptional dining experiences and top-notch service to our customers.

    Great little spot near the airport with a wide ranging menu from lamb to pasta, steaks and seafood with pizza thrown in too. The lasagna I ate and the lobster gnocchi my wife had were both cooked to perfection. The calamari appetizer was tender and the tomato based sauce delicious. Service was friendly and paced just right.

    Amazing value; the food is excellent, the menu has refined offerings such as Duck Confit, Beef Wellignton and Duck breast. Its an unusual combination with the casual decor. We will return

    Good value for the cost. Good food - very well prepared and delicious, good ambiance except for a table of ladies who were a bit loud, ice wine was nice and cold, We had dinner here for the first time, we are definitely coming back.

    This is probably my fourth of fifth time eating here. The food is usually a little slow. For the money you're paying, the service is a little slow and is not great at this price range. Here are some examples from yesterday's service. 1. I got my drink and asked for warm water for my guest. Our table received the clam chowder and mussels, no water for my guest. At that point I had to ask the person delivering our food. 2. The server didn't offer suggestions on the menu. It's an expensive menu so at other finer dining places they provide suggestions. 3. After finishing the majority of my food I asked to box a couple items... so at this point I assume the server would ask if we would like dessert or maybe the bill? I was wrong, two container were dropped off and the server disappeared. I had to wave him down (I'm thinking, I must be in a self-serve diner)... 4. The server should smile, and be more welcoming. Isn't this part of the job?. so will I recommend this to someone else?... maybe if you like paying for an expensive meal with lower service then sure. Otherwise, the food can be found in other expensive place with top notch service. so... just head downtown and pick another fine dining place.

    So nice to get great friendly service and excellent food. Went to celebrate a girlfriends 80th birthday and had the greatest time. Entertainment was wonderful! He played guitar and sang beautifully. Thanks for making our dining experience so much fun!
