We LOVE this place, and do have a five year old and a 22 month old. The food is just amazing and it's well run, clean with very friendly staff who do not seem to find the noise and confusion created by all the little ones and are extremely adept at carrying food and drinks with children running around.
The food is so good, but I have to admit that when my son only eats less than half his grilled cheese sandwich, I can't help but think of the cost. Although I usually end up finishing it because it's so good. The breakfast eggs (changes daily) are one of the best in Vancouver.
We've gone often and although it can get busy at peak times, the staff never looks stressed. When it's quiet, they take the opportunity to do a bit of clean up and tidying. Excellent restaurant on the Drive. Wish there were more....
PS And to the other reviewer, yes, the owner was the pastry chef at Lumiere.

We celebrated my friend's 44th birthday last Saturday night at the Edge Bistro. They had been to the Edge before and had a really great experience, both with the food and the service. My husband had the Edge martini to start and the restaurant kindly provided me with the recipe so I could make it as a belated birthday surprise for my friend (we all had a taste of it and we all really enjoyed it.) He also had the lamb for dinner which was perfectly cooked. I started with the featured salad which was mixed greens with beets and bocconcini and the featured halibut crusted with poppy seed. The portions were very generous so excellent value. The fish was also cooked to my liking (I sometimes find restaurants slightly under cook the fish.) For dessert my husband had the creme brulee and as they were out of the cheesecake, I had the Edge martini which they gave me for the price of the cheesecake ($1 off which was a nice gesture). The service was great. Not too friendly (which drives me nuts - you're my waiter, not my best friend!), but very professional. The room was nicely decorated and the stemware was brilliantly clean. Again, marked up stemware or "foggy" glasses is another pet peeve of mine. The only comment is that the entrance to the bathrooms is quite dark. I was worried I might have ended up in the mens room.
We would definitely make a return visit.
