Poor service and steak came out at the incorrect temperature. Sides were underwhelming. Worst experience of my month in Vancouver.

I have gone here many times and it never disappoints. Although they did change the recipe for the steak tartare a few years back and that is too bad because now it is lack lustre. It really needs some acidity and flavour, seems bland now. Otherwise just fantastic service and food!

We had just a fabulous evening at Tableau for our anniversary. I didn’t know what to expect but the food was fabulous, service was fabulous, price was less than expected. I would definitely go back again for a special evening. Shawn Dahl. White Rock

The food as always, was great. The biggest issue we all had was actually trying to understand what our waitress was saying to us. She was extremely friendly and very accomodating but we could not understand a word. It was obvious that english was not her first language. That combined with the mask made it very difficult to hear her and grasp what was said.

I've been to Tableau 4 times. This time, it was disappointing.

I made a trip out to have the avocado toast as it was amazing last time.

I asked the server to ensure that the egg is cooked well as I don't enjoy the texture of a runny egg. She suggested a fried egg.

When it arrived, it was runny.

Another server dropped off the plate.

Nobody came back till I had to ask for the bill.
The server saw the yolk oozing on my plate and said nothing.

No "How's everything?" "Can we get you anything else?" Meanwhile the tables next to me kept having multiple people tend to them.

Very disappointed in making the commute from Langley just for crappy service and food.

I guess it's a hit and miss at this place.

A good experience but unpleasantly loud techno music throughout the meal rather detracted. Food was prepared well but, to my taste, a little too salty, even for one who enjoys a well-seasoned dish. I appreciate that Sunday nights may not be a good indicator of the usual offering, so I would give this place a second chance.

Music too loud. Try NO music.

Do cafes and bistro's in Paris have music thumping all the way through dinner?

I think not.

Silence is better.

Easy thing to fix...

Late lunch with my family for Father’s Fay. Food was great and another visit from the chef was a highlight. The floor manager started us off with bubbly and the wine with lunch was paired with the meal. Our server was attentive and his suggestions for shared plates were delicious. The patio lunch vibe transitioned from upbeat to one of being more relaxed as the early lunch crowd headed back to work. Recommend.
