I like this place . The server was a great .
What I hate is telling you we don’t take reservation at 10.30 pm every time you make one and pretended there was a problem in the system . Your restaurant always have reservations at 10.30 through open table ! If you don’t wish to take them in the future simply turn off the 10.30 slots .
Don’t make people make reservations and travel for them to arrive to a grumpy face saying we don’t usually take 10.30 reservations .

Good choice of French wines. Duck with cherries was excellent as was my husband’s steak frites. Roasted veggies were perfect. Excellent service. Was a quiet Sunday night so not sure what noise level would be if the restaurant was crowded

used to be a fave after work and neighbourhood spot but the service has shown a notable decline in the last year . This server didn’t know they had oysters on the menu and bumbled his way through. Last time the servers shirt was very dirty. It’s a real shame as it’s a lovely elegant space.

The food was great! They had a fine selection of dishes to choose from. The lobster pot pie was great the puff pastry on top was made to perfection. The escargot was one of the best apps I have ever had. Over all this was one of the best restaurants I have ever been too.

LOVE dining at Tableau! This is my go to restaurant for special occasions because the food is ALWAYS amazing and perfectly executed while the service is outstanding as usual. They always give stellar service with a smile and they always treat my birthday guests with a little free dessert and candle which I appreciate. My birthday guest also received a little personalized birthday note on her seat - how sweet is that? Definitely one of my top 5 restaurants in Vancouver! I love their steak frites and mussels (moules), come check them out, they are seriously so amazing!!

The 32oz steak does not deserve the $99.00 value.
Way too over priced for the quality they provided.
It was hard to slice, and very very hard to chew.

It seemed that the overall quality for all of the dishes went down.
It was such a disappointment as it was one of my favourite places to go.
Also an embarrassment for treating our valuable guest this quality of food who flew all the way to Vancouver for this.

Would not recommend my friends, or go back for a while for sure.

Service was very slow. Server had to be called to our table several times to take both drink and dinner orders. Chicken was undercooked. (Restaurant did offer to remove 2 chicken dishes from bill). Tableau is a well known restaurant, this experience shouldn't happen especially considering the restaurant wasn't full.

"I love how fresh the place feels – especially the open windows and patio. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The french onion soup was amazing with generous amounts of cheese and the burger was superb. I chose the location to meet an old friend and colleague and received great compliments on my restaurant choice! Service was well-timed and friendly."

While this was a great spot for dinner with our group of 8, we were somewhat disappointed in the food. My roasted chicken was tasty enough, but undercooked. Three members of our group ordered short ribs, but this dish was loaded with pasta; it was difficult to find any meat. The steak frite, duck and trout were all described as "fine." We enjoyed the ambience.

It had been a few years since my last visit which had not been a pleasant one due to a horrid hostess. The food and service I always like. On this visit everything was truly pleasant and the food as yummy as ever. Brunch was delicious. Service excellent and professional. Definitely will start going back.

I’ve been to this restaurant a number of times. Delicious bistro French food and it is quite unique for the city. The food is at a great price point and the waiters are very friendly. For Mother’s Day this year they gave out a peony to the mom which was a wonderful touch.

I love this place. This is called Frech food, impeccably executed. Love the wine list, the choices the service. All excellent. A small note that this may be a better atmosphere for business and casual dining as opposed to romantic. Not that isn't good enough it's just kind of loud and tables a close together.
