Reviews & Accolades

“It’s French bistro done well enough to make me hungry at the thought of it.” – Mia Stainsby, Vancouver Sun Food Editor “You’ll go for the ambience and stay for the cocktails (which are excellent). But you’re bound to return, again and again, for the food.” – Alexandra Gill, The Globe and Mail

“Really great food. Great staff too. If I lived in that hood, I’d probably drop by once a week.” – Sarah Rowland, 24 Hours Vancouver

French-inspired eatery does it right – Metro Vancouver “Executive chef Marc-Andres Choquette (Lumiere) and executive sous chef Tret Jordan (Raincity Grill, Bacchus, Elixir) come with a fine dining pedigree that would be hard to match anywhere in the city.” – The Vancouver Sun

“Tableau channels New York bistro in much the way Joe Fortes channels San Francisco, that is to say, with a good deal of polish and sophistication. I plan to go back. Hell, I’d even pay.” – Randy Shore, The Vancouver Sun

“It’s to die for.” – Erin Ireland, Metro Vancouver

    so the desperation for business continues. sorry folks nobody wants to eat in a hotel, other than the seniors on vacation. ask any other hotel that is desperate for business. take out program?? give me a fucking break. this restaurant won’t be around much longer either. despite the skill of the chef, which in this case, is exceptional. I called it when this new place started when the old place failed.

    I’m taking my family there for brunch on Sunday. I think the future looks pretty good for this place, but I may be a senior on vacation.

    I’m glad this resto so far has outlasted Doug’s predictions as I find it a both delicious both in terms of food and decor. This place is charming not only for a senior on vacation but also for a young professional.
