Tried and true fav. Neew team in place has brought new menu but the charm remains.
I love Tableau. Our waitress was lovely and very sweet. The server staff are always super friendly. I've been here a few times both for brunch and dinner and it's one of my top five go to spots in downtown Vancouver. Keep doing what you're doing Tableau!! My wife and I will be back soon!
We stopped here for happy hour, our first visit back since they reopened. Service was great and the food was delicious, they haven’t missed a beat.
Great food, very attentive. These folks are really trying... and their succeeding. Highly recommend.
Excellent food and service ...too bad was not very busy as is located within a hotel
Amazing food and service and a vast improvement on the previous iteration. Will definitely come back and recommend to friends and family.
The music was a little too loud for our group. We needed to almost shout. Turning down the music a wee bit would make it even more enjoyable
When is it not great??! Love this place. Always such a great atmosphere, the drinks were fantastic and the service was excellent. We went on a limb and ordered the banana split for dessert and that was great too.
Service is excellent. Food quality was high. One of our favourite restaurants downtown
I went to Tableau Bar Bistro for brunch today, it was my first time dining there and I absolutely loved it. We had the smoked salmon benny which was delicious and the croque madame which was by far the best one I have ever had in Vancouver.
The place itself is very beautiful and lovely, the atmosphere is fantastic and the staff is great. I would highly recommend Tableau Bar Bistro (Great value!!).
The revamp is on point, the restaurant has this cool, trendy French bistro style.. and what a scrumptious brunch that was!
The mushroom toast is to die for! Nicoise salad, hand down, is the best I ever had and a must try when you are there. How do they make that beef brisket so tender and buttery that it just melts on your mouth, yum?!
Big thank you to our server Amanda who took really good care of us.
The place is very well managed, and has talented chefs, kudos to team Tableau!
We are so happy you are back in the game. To the next time!
Why oh why did they take chicken & waffles off the menu???
Thank you so much for a great birthday celebration! Service and food was impeccable!
Service and food great and covid spacing could be better
Wonderfully friendly staff and very beautiful relaxing environment, the food was outstanding (no surprise there). Tableau consistently proves itself to be one of Vancouver's finest restaurants, and somewhat of a hidden gem. Looking forward to my next visit.
Fabulous food only to be surpassed by the service
All great as usual!
We ordered the seafood tower as well as shared the Nicoise salad and beef tartare. All were excellent. Everything tasted incredibly fresh. Great value for the quality of service and food we enjoyed. Thank you!
We always have a top notch experience at Tableau! The food and service is awesome. Thank you for making my friend feel special on her birthday!
Always a great restaurant to be for lunch, happy hour or dinner. Great hospitality!
Everything was excellent! food, drinks, service, ambiance, i loved it all. Legitimately one of the best meals i have ever had at a VERY reasonable price. Definitely going back. Nate our server had amazing recommendations and compliments to the chef, he absolutely killed it.
Excellent classic French menu with solid, not weird and yet far from boring, tasty choices.
A great place. My girlfriend and I have enjoyed the food and all.
Amazing service and food
The Mushrooms on Toast will always bring me back, excellent overall
Food was well prepared. We all had the steak and frites. Service was prompt and good follow-up, without being overbearing.
I have been here many times and always have a great meal. Pretty good value. They had a special Bourdeaux event going on and all the Bourdeaux wine was 30% off. That made it more affordable.
Burger and frites for happy hour was great value! Waiter was knowledgeable and friendly.
The best place to enjoy a lunch/dinner in Vancouver. Always great
Good service and value. We enjoyed the evening and were pleased with the service, the food , and the atmosphere.
Great service. Food outstanding. Solid date spot. Music could’ve been louder.
Brunch was amazing. We love to get the “Le Grand Mamosa“pitcher and enjoy it with a fantastic meal. Best truffle fries and all the Vancouver.
This is a yes and no recommendation. I always thought tableua was a more upscale restaurant, though not like Market and more like Yew restauraunt. Little things we noticed, like allowing patrons in hoodies, using only 1 set of knife (instead of a butter knife for bread and butter), the lack of creativityin the plating, and general ambience. I was hear a few years ago and then it felt more intimate, vibrant, and a hidden gem. Now it feels more like a shell of it's former self. I can't say for the value since we had a set menu, but the main course was good. The ahi tuna felt bland and the desert was nice.
I absolutely loved the food and service here. Our server was very prompt and gave us great suggestions for side pairings. The mushroom on toast was delicious! I’d say it was a little bit on the louder side, but overall, loved it.
Quiet upscale Bistro with excellent food and service -
-good value for money
-food average but no complaints
-nevertheless, would return again
Loved the duck!! Loved the champagne by the glass!!
Our reservation was for 6:30 pm. I walked in and the music was blaring. Which meant that customers who were having conversations were shouting at each other to be heard over the music. The loudness was unpleasant and unnecessary. While waiting for my friend I seriously considered figuring out some place else we could have dinner. She arrived and immediately said “well this gets crossed off the list for a return visit.”
The food was excellent, the service was great. But it’s not a place to go if you want to catch up with a friend. Probably fine if you spend much of dinner scrolling your phone rather than trying to interact with people at your table.
This all could be easily remedied by keeping the music to a low whisper. Unless the vision statement of the restaurant is “A place to go have dinner with others when you don’t want to talk to each other.” But if so, you should post that on your website. It could be a great marketing tool.
Good afternoon Nancy and thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. Thank you for your nice comments on our food and service. But clearly I MUST apologize for the music being at such and inadequate level that it took away from your experience, I was by no means intended. I have reviewed your comments with my leadership team to ensure no other guests has to suffer form such a situation and I truly hope you will give us another chance! Sincerely, Olivier General Manager
Always good good and attentive service. Very busy and noisy.
Luved it! Loud but did calm down little later. We’ll be back :-)
