Our server Jackson did a spectacular job in taking care of us that night. Very accommodating, was very attentive, and always made sure we felt special. If anyone has the pleasure to come eat here please make sure to experience the whole sha-bang with Jackson!! :-)

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.

They took Polaroid photo for you. And they give my mom a flower at the end. Sweet gesture for Mother’s Day

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.

This little French bistro attached to the Loden Hotel in Vancouver is fantastic! We were celebrating our 22nd Anniversary and were staying at the Loden after a cruise and we decided to have Saturday brunch at Tableau. The food and service was amazing. We liked it so much that we went back that evening and sat at the bar for a light supper. Highly recommend!

I’d recommend for drink or happy hour but the food was only mediocre. The ribs w parpadelli was not good. The steak frites was very good. The water at extra charge in a Vancouver restaurant is padding the bill. Plus a charge for bread and butter and cold olives. There are just too many better places to eat in Vancouver to spend a night out here. I’m sure happy hour works and the cocktails were very good.
