Great cocktails and food were outstanding. Our server was VERY sweet and attentive. Our food took a really long time to come out of the kitchen, but the chef sent us a free dessert as an apology. I would definitely go again.

Fabulous food, service and price. One of our favourite places in Vancouver for excellent French food. The wine selection pairs perfectly with all of their offerings. Service is impeccable and personal. We have been going there for years and look forward to many, many more! The seafood towers especially during Happy Hour are a bonus. The frites are worth the extra hours at the gym. Make sure to squeeze this one in and it will easily become one of your staples.

Fabulous experience! The high noise level is temporary and due to construction next door. The food was beautifully cooked and served. Had the steak and eggs brunch, french onion soup and Bircher muesli with raspberry sorbet for dessert. This chef clearly loves good food!

A friend and I went to Tableau for a birthday brunch. From the time we arrived to the time we left everything was perfect. The servers were wonderfully attentive and the food was delicious! We weren’t very adventurous with our choices but It was well prepared and presented. They offered us a lovely drink in honor of her birthday which was so appreciated.w They also have a great outdoor area due to Covid but it was a little too noisy outside with some construction nearby. It’s been a few years since I was last here and it most definitely did not disappoint. All in all I highly recommend Tableau!

Food was delicious, however service can be improved. First, our server set up a table for 2 instead of 3, then forgot to add the jam on toast and condiments for fries.

Tableau is a hidden gem in Vancouver and possibly one of the best french restaurants in the city. Eaten there dozens of times, every meal has been fantastic. Highly recommend.

Fabulous food, service and ambiance! Only complaint would be the loud music which didn't really match the vibe of the place. We had oysters, pate and beef tartare to start. I had the duck breast for my main and the hubs did the coq au vin. We were very happy with all of our selections and can't wait to come back to try more items.

I’ve dined several times before, mostly for lunch, loved it and was excited about the reopening. I think they are still working out the kinks.
The mushrooms on toast were fabulous! I was a bit disappointed in the crab Louie salad - they tried a deconstructed version which was meh and for the price I expected more crab.
The most disappointing thing was the noise level. Since when is a French bistro at 6:00 pm on a Sunday a night club? This isn’t the only place I’ve had the experience of having to ask them to turn down the music, just the last place I’d expect to have to do so. I realize COVID has made restaurants the new night club in a way - see anywhere in Yaletown. And fair enough, you need to do what you need to survive. But can’t say I’ll be back if that’s the way you’re going.

We've been to Tableau 3 or 4 times over the years when coming into Vancouver for business.

It's always great. It's always busy, which is a good sign, and the blue and leather decor with the correct music and lighting make the ambiance modern & comfortable.

High recommend. Make a reso, so you don't get stuck in the backroom, but the service, food & cocktails, are all on point. Don't miss this hidden gem.

Dinner was wonderful, scallop and oyster apps nice.
Coq au vin, and beef both excellent, the kitchen served itself proud, however the wait from the kitchen was a bit long, and the music a bit much.
