We enjoyed our evening at Le Gavroche. The location is really random with no other restaurants in the immediate area and tucked away between some nondescript buildings. Arriving into the main room was rather underwhelming as it lacked the character I was expecting from an...More

We had a table with a view of Alberni St. which I really liked. As the place filled up the staff took great care to keep people separated as long as possible which was also nice. When our food arrived I was very impressed with...More

Nice location, very GOOD staff and good attention to their guests. The food wasn't bad, very nicely presented but TOO expensive. The wine was WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. Can't recommend it. I don't like to come home hungry.

We got a window seat which is nice but the view isn't much to write about - a few trees, tour buses parked across the street, a parking lot, and a few high-rises. Had the sky been clearer I think we would have seen the...More

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is
bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their
