Edible Canada at the Market Ratings and Reviews
Couldn't help noticing that fish and chi ...
Couldn't help noticing that fish and chips is an extremely popular item on the menu so was slightly disappointed to see the table next to me (and quite a few others passing by our table) get 3 pieces of fish compared to just 2 on my plate and they were not 2 large pieces to make up the difference. The others in my party wanted me to say something to the server but I didn't want to make a big deal.
I also made the point that we were going to the Granville Island Theatre and when we got the bill there was no 15% discount. But since we had less than 10 minutes to curtain I left it as is. I will remember to make a point of it when we arrive next time.
So when I usually LOVE having pre-theatre dinner at Edible Canada this time it was not as fulfilling all around as in previous visits.

We had 8pm reservation on a Saturday night and it was still busy, but we were seated right away. Very interesting menu options. We had fish and chips, with salad and fries cooked in duck oil. And a sashimi styled Arctic Char. The fish and chips was amazing. Some of the best we had eaten in a long time.
The Arctic Char was more appetizer sized, but very tasty. Prices were reasonable. Pretty good service, considering how busy they were.
We would definately go again.

was there for my fathers birthday. The food was good, but is often much better. this incarnation of the menu seems a little less inspired. the server was busy but good, though usually theres quite a team service which was absent this time around. we still had a lovely evening and I would definitely recommend especially if you have a celiac amongst the group as it is by far the best gluten free fare in the city. ill be back.

The place was pleasant, and the servers accommodating. I can't honestly recommend as "great" or "a gem" or a "find" as the question above suggests. As for the food, I wouldn't say it's a standout. Kale salad was quite tough, with a nice-enough dressing and the salmon that I'd ordered to top it was well cooked and tasty. I think the ingredients listings are a bit misleading. For example, the kale salad had "puffed wild rice" listed, but perhaps there were 5 or 6 pieces to be found on the salad. One friend ordered what one might have thought from the label and description, was sweet potato based. It wasn't. But it looked very good and my friend was very happy with it.

While I realize overhead in a location at Granville Island must be quite high, $17 for avocado toast (no eggs--and no vegan substitute options) is a bit much. The mushrooms were delicious, but frankly the overall value compared to a dozen other seasonal, "foodie" places in town--not so hot.

Especially appreciate map on back of menu of BC wineries and regions and especially the servers pointing out where your selection comes from.
Delicious mushroom omelette and a glass of BC red wine. Lovely afternoon rain or shine.

We were given a choice of inside or outside dining and chose inside because of some loud outside music. As it turned out, the inside music was about the same volume. Other than that, we had a terrific meal with great service.

Being on the patio in the middle of Granville Island Market with so much activity around us that it was a feast for the eyes and imagination. The water and mountains surrounding Vancouver on a mild breezy evening then a quick 2 minutes stroll to see live theatre was convenient.

While the food was tasty my salad was missing the candied nuts as described on the menu. When I asked the waitress about it she didn't seem to know it should have included nuts. The service was slow and the food over priced. It was also extremely noisy and very difficult to have a conversation.

I took my Mom for lunch at Edible Canada this past week. She has wanted to try the fish and chips for quite a while now. I have Celiac Disease, and although she was never tested she also follows a gluten free diet as she feels better if she does. I love that I can find really good gluten free fish and chips in the city where I can also sit down an feel like I am fine dining. We sat outside and enjoyed watching all the people go by. The fish and chips at Edible Canada are the best fish and chips I have ever had, gluten filled or gluten free. Thank-you for always ensuring that there is always something I can order when ever I come to your restaurant. I recommend it often to celiacs and non-celiacs as a place to get fresh, local, perfectly cooked meals.

Busy place - small dining area with store on the side. Not enough service staff - Some testy diners for a Sat morning were kept waiting to be seated and gruffly announced they were there first and had reservations so should be seated first. Good brunch menu - the duck fat smashed potatoes are delish! Good size eggs benny with salad and smashed potatoes and big breakfast. Others had the lunch menu - banh mi and fish & chips. Service lacking due to not enough wait staff - dying of thirst, no one available to fill water glasses.

We were dining before a play and we had made reservations short notice. I had been to Edible Canada before and even though I remembered the food being good, I also remembered a very long wait time for service and food. I was a bit worried we were going to be cutting it close with a 615pm res for an 8pm play.
Despite my concerns, were served in a timely manner and the food was excellent. My son had the Oxtail Poutine (YUM!) and I had the Hazelmere Kale Salad. I had the small size salad but it was definitely not small. It was more than ample for a dinner salad and the tahini dressing was delicious- flavorful but not overpowering with that sesame taste.
We will be back again soon. There are a few other things I want to try from their menu like their Arctic Char Gravlax and the Split Pea Soup with crispy pork jowl.

Most of the people in our party had been here before, but we liked it so much, we decided to go back! We ended up sharing a few dishes, as we all wanted to try a little bit of everything. We started with the duck fat fries and mussels along with the oxtail poutine. Both were very tasty! My main was the elk tartar - a smaller sized portion compared to most of their other dishes but packed with flavor! We almost didn't get dessert, as our waiter said the maple bourbon ambrosia apples had sold out. He came back quickly and said he was mistaken and promptly brought the dish out! LOL. It was very tasty but my friend had the house-made s'more cookie which was even better than my dessert. (I had a few bites of hers.)
There's plenty of parking, both free and paid, around the restaurant. We had to go for a short walk before going home as we ate so much!
The service was stellar and the waiter was kind enough to split the bill for us.
There's a small store in the back and if you dine in the restaurant, you will get 10% off your purchase, something we took advantage of! I would definitely come back again!
Nice but . . .
We made a reservation and expected to be on the patio. But alas, we were seated inside on a beautiful sunny Sunday. Our table was right beside the door that the servers used to access the patio so it was a bit extra noisy. And, there was quite a draft or the air conditioning blowing so we were actually cold.
I have celiac disease My food was good although one of my friends ordered something that was really small for a lot of $$$.
We all had a nice visit which was the point of the lunch.
our server was terrific. our food however took forever to come and then on arrival was burnt black but hidden with sauce. by that time we were too hungry to send back for a redo . prices online menu are lower than actual. servings were small for the price. overall great location but wouldn't return based on quality/price.

Service was great. Food was delicious and had a great local appeal. I would like to come back to try other things on the menu. I thought it was a nice touch to have blankets available for those that were a little chilly in the morning for outdoor dining.
My wife and I took two friends for lunch. The ladies had a pasta dish that they both enjoyed. The men had fish and chips; the chips and salad were fine but the fish had clearly been cooked before hand and came to us with a very tough outer crust that made it almost inedible.
Perfect B-day brunch
What a delicious birthday brunch. We arrived too late to get our reservation (stupid GI island traffic/parking), but the hostess promptly sat us in the patio without a wait. Our table was quickly engulfed in sunshine as it popped over the bridge. The food came out fast. My Arctic Char was beautifully plated although a bit too small for a meal portion. My bf praised that his eggs benny was the best he's had in a while, with the hollandaise sauce being light and flavourful. Oh! and those smashed potatoes roasted in duck fat are the absolute best! What a lovely restaurant in the heart of lively Granville Island. I keep coming back time and time again.

Reasonably-priced casual dinner spot in the heart of Granville Island.
- Food was delicious, the kale salad, poutine, fish & chips, burger and sablefish are all recommended
- Locally sourced ingredients
- Cool ambience
- portions were on the smaller side
Didn't get to try out the patio, as it was too cold outside. Will be back!
Service Does Not Equal the Food Quality
The food was amazing...the service...not quite. Our server was attentive until the food was dropped off. After that, he was no where to be seen. No one asked to refill coffee or waters, no check in until we tracked down a different server after 45mins. It's too bad because the food is spectacular.
Second time I've been here and it was the exact same experience. Thought we'd give it another chance but they failed again. Kudos to the kitchen...management should really do something about the service.
