Reviews & Accolades

“It’s French bistro done well enough to make me hungry at the thought of it.” – Mia Stainsby, Vancouver Sun

“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

Classic French bistro fare, monster grain bowls at lunch, and some of the best trout tartare in the city make this Coal Harbour [restaurant] a fantastic destination day or night.” – Anya Levykh, Westender
