Service was very good but the kitchen took forever to prepare our meal. The main arrived 45 minutes after the appetizer. We had dined at Tableu previously and really enjoyed it. Not this time.
A great lunch venue close to downtown. Excellent succulent seafood.
Exceptional Service with a last minute resservation! Highest Recommendation! Julia, our server, & the Hostess who took our last minute reservation, were exceptional❣️This was not our first Tableau visit.
With marginal service, and server recommended dishes being unavailable, we had a decent cocktail, and changed our dinner plans on the fly to go elsewhere.
Will not be returning.
Excellent. Exactly what two friends were looking for in a get together. Great burger and nice wine
As well the hostess was extremely rude, did not greet us politely, dropped all the menus then laughed and walked off! It was not a good first impression! The food was excellent, but we were disappointed that the Côte de beouf had sold out so fast! Nevertheless, our waiter was good and we had a fun evening.
excellent food; great wine; great service - always one of our favourites when we are in the city
Food was great! Ordered the French onion soup, bone marrow, duck, steak frites and cherry cheesecake - all delicious. Highly recommend.
The service was spotty and food order was completely messed up usually love tableau but this visit was a complete miss.
It was Friday night. So, it was packed and very noisy.
The saving grace was the food was very well prepared and the service good.
We shall definitely return, hoping for a less noisy evening.
Always excellent food and service at this place. Attractive and comfortable atmosphere. Great place for business lunches and brunch with friends!
What a lovely gem of a restaurant! Great food and ambiance; simply charming. Would definitely go back!
The food came over very fast. While my girlfriend enjoyed her pasta, the mussel pot I received had a lot of empty shells. It was an okay experience, but I probably would not return.
The food was very good but unfortunately the service was a little lacking.
It is a must to experience. Not to big, not to small, the ambience was perfect.
Regarding the Menu, we ran out of room because we wanted to try everything on the menu and order to much. Portions were perfect size to us. The Staff serving us and the general manager were very knowledgeable and answered our questions with details regarding the dish preparations and the wine list.
We are definitely planning to go back to try more out of the menu.
If you go sit at the bar and have a drink made by Carter. He’s a kick. Overall the food was good the ambience was was good and we had a really nice time.
Service and food were excellent. The only thing was that drip coffee was a bit cold.
Highly recommended Great food, great service and lovely ambiance
Buonissima cucina francese ed ottimi vini. Servizio gentilissimo e competente
Consistently good food and service! Always such a treat to eat here.
Tableau was a great disappointment.
After reading positive reviews and knowing the reputation of the chef, we had great hopes, but they were not met. When we arrived, we were treated with indifference. Our server was pleasant, but not very polished and the food runners brought dishes out in fits and spurts. They didn't have any bread ready at the time our appetizers came out and served 'house' sparkling water that was flat, for which they charged $7.50.
The food was only passable, certainly not the quality one would expect from such a renowned chef.
And the dining room was unpleasantly noisy, with pounding music that does not belong in a dining room attempting to serve a fine meal.
I’ve been going to Tableau with my girlfriend consistently and each time we go, the service gets better. The food is always great.
We ducked into Tableau on our vacation and loved every minute and every bite of it. Solid bistro style food, good wine list, great service.
A lovely Downtown French Restaurant, with friendly staff and attentive service. Every dish, from salads to soup, to fish and beef (the burger is probably one of the best in town!) were exquisite with lovely presentation. We were a party of 6 friends and everybody left pleased, with plans to visit again.
Brought some family here for a reunion and to celebrate their recent wedding. Atmosphere was perfect for us and service was impeccable. The food was a credit to the chefs, the French Onion Soup is the best I've ever tasted and their cocktails are also fantastic. Will certainly be recommending to friends and will be returning again.
Wet good food. The food is classic French bistro menu. Downtown business crowd.
This is just a nice little gem to discover. The decor is really nice, the staff wonderful. We really enjoyed it and would certainly return when I return to Vancouver.
Nice happy hour menu, great value and delicious!
Maybe it was an off night but it simply didn’t seem like they were trying very hard. The waiter was very inexperienced, the bar wasn’t stocked to make a basic gin martini and the oysters weren’t particularly cold. We left after appetizers, didn’t seem like there was much point finding out how lack luster the other courses might be...too bad because I’ve had lunch there and it was excellent.
Been to Tableau many times, everytime I have a craving for onion soup, this is the place to be.
Very disappointed in the level of service.
We must have been at the end of our waiter’s shift, as he started with us and then never reappeared. That wasn’t communicated to us and maybe not the replacement since we were wondering what was going on. We never even had the opportunity to ask for another glass of wine, which was very small to begin with. The food was pretty good, but for what we paid, the value is missing. Go elsewhere, review readers!
Wonderful food and fantastic staff! The bone marrow and steak frites was delicious.
The service was weird our server seemed obsessed with what kind of water we wanted. There was filtered, sparkling and tap. When my wife and I got there I said filtered ( I really didn't care). She brought two glasses and filled them out of a bottle.
When the other couple arrived she asked them and they said tap water, I made the mistake of saying I didn't care. So she brought 4 glasses of warm tap water and took away my wife's and my filtered cold water. Water seemed to be a huge thing with her. She was quite rude the rest of the meal.
Great service, delicious food.
This is my new favorite restaurant in Vancouver. The food is fantastic and the service is over the top amazing !!!
Tableau Bar Bistro has been one of my fave restaurants for dinner, so thought I'd book it for brunch as a get-together with friends: I was disappointed with my omelet as it was quite bland, particularly when compared to other omelet offerings in the city. It appeared to have very little cheese & mushrooms. The rest of our party, fortunately, enjoyed their meals. I'd still recommend Tableau to friends, but note that the omelet is not good value.
There was a rock in my fries which chipped my tooth
The classic bistro specialties are there and excellently done. A real service team! Kudos
Great food. Great specials. Reasonably priced for what we got.
Duck was good but a little chewy and not the best I've ever had. Bread to start was good, patio is small but nice.
