About Oyster


Oyster Seafood and Raw Bar: a new pearl in the Vancouver dining scene. A small and charming room, distinctly focused on Ocean Wise seafood, Oyster blends the charm of the 1920’s with the upscale and modern influences of the twenty-first century. Housed in the original Vancouver Stock Exchange building at 475 Howe Street, this 25 seat oyster haven is open from noon to 9pm Monday to Friday, with daily menu features and 3 – 6pm “buck a shuck” oysters.

The seed behind Oyster is Jeremy Towning. A family background in hospitality and passion for business brought Towning to open Oyster. He has put together a team that is passionate about – yes, you guessed it – Oysters. A wine list focused on seafood pairings, and house-designed “batched cocktails” are among a few of the inventive creations at Oyster.

Oyster offers a broad choice of non oyster offerings; try the chopped shrimp salad, the delectable Lobster Butter mini Hoagies or for the carnivore in the crowd the Philly Cheese Steak mini sandwich features AAA shaved rib eye with caramelized onions and aged cheddar. Sharing plates see a selection of Organic Ocean Wild Salmon Tartare, Crab Claw Cocktail and the always popular Steamer Bowls – clams, mussels or ALL In. Add some Potato Salad or an order of Garlic Toast and lunch is a done deal.

Oyster features a selection of BC’s finest seafood, as fresh as can B, with the emphasis on freshly shucked Oysters, prepared Scallops, Mussels, Clams, Crab and fin fish, cooked in with global flare and maintaining the flavours inherent to BC seafood and the waters they come from.

Oyster is located at 475 Howe Street (at Pender). To book private weekend functions please call 604-899-0323.

  1. Tried this intimate (another word for tiny) little gem on Friday night. The oysters (buck a shuck) were fresh and delish, the smoked salmon vodka and oyster shot was smokin and the lobster (a whole lobster) hougie was to die for. Kelly Ann was very attentive and interesting and made great suggestions. We’ll be back if only to try the scallop brulee … seriously!
