We went here for Valentine's day and were very very happy with our choice. The wine pairings were thoughtful, the service was genuine and professional, the decor and concept - stunning. Nice spot, quiet off the main strip.
We started off with bannock served with cedar jelly: interesting, tasty.
Small mushroom lattes were to die for.
We had the platter to share as our main, and the candied salmon, braised sablefish, elk, and stuffed quail were excellent. The platter was beautifully presented in a wire dish holder and was a lot of food. Good value. I would suggest ordering this if you are really hungry and are able to eat the meat before it gets cold.
Earl grey creme brulee for dessert was well done, great paired with blackberry port, and as an extra touch for V-day we were given two plump chocolate coated strawberries.
This place goes the extra mile to please its guests, and it feels good to know that we are able to eat local and not sacrifice quality or variety.
It's nice to leave a restaurant without the ethical issues weighing on you as much.

I've been to The Main a few times for dinner with friends, and lately have been going for the live music on the weekends. They have a good lineup of local talent from indie to rockabilly, one night there was a dude who performed his entire act in a santa claus suit while playing 'the grinch who stole christmas' on a screen behind him! It was quite entertaining.
The food's been decent each time. The roast lamb is very tender, sooo delicious! Good sized portions too.
The service was good, the waitress was really busy but still managed to smile and make us feel at home.
All in all, this is a great place to grab a beer and hang out!
