Painfully Loud
Submitted Thursday, January 13, 2011 - 11:31am [Dine in]

The decibel level in this small restaurant is akin to dining next to a taxiing 747! Which is a shame because the food is good. Our party of four had to yell across the table at each other due to the noise level. This was made worse by an adjoining table which probably would have been happier at Earl's. Do not come to this restaurant expecting an intimate dining experience.

As mentioned, the food was good. Service was friendly, though not as attentive as it could have been in such a small space. Oh yeah, having to go through the kitchen to get to the loo is gross. All in all, I'd stick to Pied a Terre, from the same owners. Better atmosphere, better service, the same good food without the ear-splitting din.

This Restaurant Gets Better Each Time
Submitted Tuesday, April 13, 2010 - 9:35pm [Dine in]

This is my fourth time at Pied-à-Terre over two years, and each time it gets better and better. We were quickly greeted in a friendly manner, and this set the tone for a wonderful meal. I started with the lamb tart special which smelled and tasted delicious. This was followed by the rabbit which was rolled and wrapped in ham. Very tasty and and a hearty serving to boot. My dining companion started with the onion tart followed by the duck breast. The duck was accompanied by a very tasty melange of vegetables. Service was quick and friendly. My only regret is I had no room left for dessert. Can't wait for next time!

Great Dining Yaletown
Submitted Sunday, March 21, 2010 - 11:46am [Dine in]

I'd been to r.tl once before and was impressed, I'm surprised its not busier for dinner. The atmosphere is crisp and modern and its close to the Yaletown skytrain station if you want to avoid Yaletown parking. There were three of us this time and we shared the beet salad, crispy pork belly, beef tacu-tacu and smoked duck. All were very good, with the smoked duck and crispy pork belly being stand-outs. The smoked duck was very thinly sliced and bursting with flavour. The pork belly came as three individual servings, with a garnish of hibiscus cabbage that perfectly complemented the saltiness of the pork belly. A solid wine and drink list is also on hand.
Dessert was vanilla custard with a tangy passionfuit coulis,saffron gelato and a type of chocolate lava cake.

A Great Meal
Submitted Thursday, February 4, 2010 - 9:18pm [Dine in]

Went here on a quiet Monday night. was pleasantly surprised by the meal, and by the value-conscious pricing.

We started with the chickpea fries, which were subtle, but with a nice texture. The paprika mayo provided a nice zing. A beet salad was good, but unremarkable.

My bison was cooked a perfect medium rare, and the chimichurri was a great complement in texture and taste. Dining companion's beef short ribs were rated very good, and very filling! A solid wine list complemented the meal. Service was efficient and unobtrusive.

One word of advice to the owners: find a way to expose the booths behind the bar. To passers-by, it looked as though the place was empty (which can scare some folks off), but those three tables were full.
