Overall this was one of the best meals we had in Vancouver
The food is always consistently good but the service can be more attentive when its busy.
Great restaurant with really good food. You can't miss the burrata! The only very odd thing was our hostess was wearing a tube top and seemed surprised by every request we had. The lack of professionalism both in attire and service was a bit odd.
The staff were, as usual, fantastic. The food and wine were excellent. We always receive a warm welcome at Tavola.
Absolutely fantastic as always.
Food was amazing as always. A great go-to spot when we are craving authentic Italian. Dennis never disappoints behind the bar, so grab a seat there and watch the show.
Great service and excellent food, (we had the lamb shank and pork chops specials along a virgin cocktail "ZenZero" which were all superb) and the price wasn't too bad for the amount we had.
Our reservation was for 5PM, so the restaurant was pretty quiet which was nice. Can see the place getting really busy in the evenings.
Overall had a great time.
Great spot all around! Delicious food and excellent service.
Great place, great food - it was our anniversary and was hoping for a quieter table - they sat us in a corner next to an extremely loud group of guys so we could hardly hear each other. Other than that, love this place
As a visitor to Vancouver we do try to enjoy cuisine not necessarily available at home.
Consistently great food and service at this neighborhood gem.
Expect a wait if you don't reserve ahead of time
Just awesome. This is our go to place for business and private dinners and entertaining.
Kristy the hostess was awesome!...Everyone was lovely and very accommodating, despite being early for our 8 pm reservation, we were seated right away on a busy Thursday evening
Exceptional... as usual.
Our waiter was amazing. Super friendly and caring. Food was incredible too. Highly recommend the sharing steak, which is a bit pricey but sooo good.
We dine here every time we visit Vancouver. The staff couldn’t be more friendly and professional. The food is always excellent. Portions are large and we always order too much, but it is so good we always finish it. Never disappointed
Tavola and it's sister restaurants never disappoint. Great food and service, always creative specials and vibrant room. Only negative is it gets noisy.
Fantastic Italian food out of the ordinary. Great scene, nice people and staff, very decent wine list.
Most of the food was ok, but the squid ink special tasted old with mealy, dry lobster meat.
Tavola ticks all the boxes; great food, great service, great ambience. I’m a huge fan of Tavola, Nook and Oddfish because their entire staff at all restaurants seem to love their jobs, love the clientele and it makes the experience so much better than just coming for fantastic food.
Superb food with wonderfully fresh ingredients.
I’ve gone to Tavola before and would have given it 4 stars. The dishes we chose (both from the board) though were too peppery for me though. They were the squid ink pasta and the cod. I know the food there is usually outstanding so I would go with the old favorites like the ragu and the brick chicken.
Tavola always delivers. On this evening, there was a very large party, so it was loud! But once we got used to the volume, we had a fabulous night as expected. Our food (which we shared, was delicious, generous and perfectly cooked. A great place to celebrate a birthday with friends! Good service too!
The service was wonderful and the food was great. I would love to go back.
We had a wonderful birthday dinner at Tavola. The food was excellent as well as the drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). We were impressed with all of the menu choices and the number of specials. The service was great and we will definitely return!
Loved our meals. Great service. Food was fantastic and not salty! Flavorful. Colorful. Interesting. Tasty. Fresh:). Locally sourced ingredients. Great for sharing. Awesome value
We really enjoyed our meals except for the rib steak, which was gristly and somewhat underdone (disappointing, esp given the high price). The appetizers, salads and pastas were great! The wine was well paired. We did not appreciate the upselling on the part of our server (who said he'd been there for many years and, therefore, knew how much food we should order). He was insistent on us ordering more than we really wanted, and we didn't eat it all. We ordered an expensive protein as well as the chicken special and 3 bottles of wine (for 6 people), finishing with a bill close to $400, so we were not trying to be economical -- just cognizant of how much we wanted to eat. We arrived at 6:00 and were instructed to take the table by the door even though we were only the second party to arrive. There were several other empty tables for 6 that we asked about but were told to take the one by the door. It was the first time at the restaurant for 3 members of the party, so being by the door (and the drafty sliding door to the patio) detracted somewhat from the experience. Just to say that the service did make a difference. We'll try it again to see if the latter is better. If so, we'll recommend to our friends and colleagues. If not, we won't. Thanks for reading.
A wonderful dining experience. The service was excellent and the food was incredible. I would highly recommend.
All in all a great experience. Food was excellent! Going back for sure.
The food was delicious as expected.
Kenton was a great server. Go now !
Make a reservation though.
Good food and service. The menu was small and limited in its offerings. Need more food options to pick from. We will be returning in the future.
Overall, quite excellent, but I do put a lot of emphasis on service which was slightly lacking, hence the 4 stars; our server seemed quite knowledgeable about the menu although he was quite aloof and seemed like he was too cool to serve us so it felt quite awkward.. other than those instances throughout our meal, everything else was great. The regular menu seemed lacking to us, but the daily specials is where it's at! Our whole meal came from the specials (appy and entrees) and it seemed all of the tables around us ordered mostly from it too. Food was amazing! Our favourite was the trout. Highly recommended.
Excellent overall experience
Fantastic as always, the food is to die for and the sticky toffee pudding is superb!
My last dining experience at Tavola was out of the norm. The pasta dishes were extremely salty. The service was good but no discount or anything offered to apologize for the overly salted food.
Tavola is one of our favourite restaurants! I can't not order the gnocchi -- it's too good! But you can't ignore their extensive specials list either.
impressed with the food quality and creativity. The server was very well informed and the service attentive.
We both enjoyed the pork pasta dish and the sticky pudding dessert was delicious.
The food was good and so was the service. It was a bit loud. All in all a good night out
Great spot. The owner stop by our table went over the menu and specials. Food was fantastic. Will be back.
