Le Gavroche Restaurant1616 Alberni Street, Vancouver

This was probably the best Dine out Vancouver experience I've ever had!

I was nervous walking into an old house for fine french food, as the old house of a restaurant felt cramped, as there was little space to move around, and being a tall person, my legs had a very difficult time finding space under the table we got beside the fireplace. It was actually not a very comfortable position to be in.

But all that is forgiven when the food began to arrive.
Pretty much everything was just Excellent! All the dishes were incredibly flavourful, had good textures and balance. I can't stress enough how delicious and flavourful everything was. The clam chowder tasted like clams, and not cream like most places. The sauces tasted like no other, as the tuna was cooked perfectly, and my pork was to die for.

I went in thinking how small the portions are going to be, and to my surprise, I was impressed how filling the night was.

I thought french food always undeservedly received high praises. But this experience at Le Gavroche has opened my eyes. This fine dining restaurant is definitely a favourite.

Wasn't worth the visit.

Went here for Dine out Vancouver a month ago with a small group of friends.

First impressions were good. Nice quiet location away from traffic noise and overlooking the water, and the ambiance inside was clean, dark, and intimate, with a open kitchen you can peak into, Great!

Service was on the ball with full glasses, complimentary bread service, and playful enough to match our table.

But let's face it, it's the food that we came here for, and frankly, did not impress. The veloute tasted like a chinese tapioca dessert, the beef was either too fatty or too dry and lacked flavour, and the chocolate cake dessert was incredibly sweet, rich, and dry, stale almost. However, the salmon was cooked very nicely, and probably the best part of the meal was the appetizer patty they called smoked trout, as it was the only thing that had a memorable flavour.

Value? That's a joke. Small portions, large prices, even for a dineout menu. The only thing pushing it to a 2 is the nice selection of complimentary breads.

If the dineout menu was to showcase what the restaurant was about, I will probably never visit this place again nor recommend it to anyone.

With a location right in the middle of a university holding thousands of poor students going by, this place has missed the mark completely.

I came here with a friend one late night at school and figured we'd try this place out. Big Mistake. From the outside, the place looks clean, and tidy, which is true for the inside as well.

The problem is with the kitchen. It took over an hour from when we ordered our meals for it to come out. There were 3 tables at the time, so it's not because they were busy. I was so hungry by that time, that I finished every morsel of the curry plate before the waitress even came back to ask if everything was okay. The portions were so small, you'd think it was a just an appetizer from a French Restaurant. Adding insult to injury, we were contemplating going next door to get donairs on the way out.

Expensive, tiny portions, Painfully SLOW kitchen service. Avoid if possible.
