food is great, wine list is pricey! Considering that the restaurant is relatively casual in ambience, I was actually quite taken back by the price of a bottle of wine - a good selection but nothing less than $48/bottle

Overpriced and wait staff was uninformed when asked what was in one of the dishes. "Beet Quinoa salad" was really lettuce with a smattering of beets and quinoa.
This is our second time here ( we like to give a resterant a second chance) and experience was the same both times.
We won't be back.

Food and service were great! I had the fish and chips and it was great! The battered cod was very crispy. My husband had the flank steak. This is where there is an issue. The steak was tasty, the plating looked great and the veggies were good....except one mistake....flank steak should be cut against the grain....not following the grain.....this made the flank steak a little chewy....if it had been cut properly against the grain it would have been perfect. This unfortunately is a big kitchen No No! So please please....be sure to cut the flank steak the proper way against the grain.
Had the crumble and it was very very good!
Would definitley go back.

Saturday morning brunch: I brought a work colleague who had never been to Canada and wanted to "experience bacon", so we both had the Canadian breakfast with an extra order of bacon. The eggs were cooked to perfection and the server was delightfully attentive. Overall, a very pleasant experience. I would cheerfully return.

Was a great experience with great food. Service was excellent. Overall I was extremely happy with everything. If there was 1 issue it would be that the wine list was a little limited. I highly recommend Edible to anyone.

Not our first visit; Not our last. Sincere intent to obtain quality, locally sourced ingredients. Organic an vegan selections are offered. Menu adjusts to accommodate seasonal product availability. Service staff has always been prompt, courteous, professional, knowledgeable. Chef and team are true artists. Many offerings require delicate preparations and practiced technique. We have never been disappointed.
Thank you all for another wonderful dining experience.

Fabulous food. One of the best meals I've had in a long time. Unfortunately, the service was slow and not very attentive. I also ordered a coffee and it was HUGE! Careful of caffeine overdose! The food alone will bring me back for sure.

We brought some friends from Morocco to Edible Canada as we wanted to treat them to Canadian cuisine. We had an overall nice experience, and felt that the food was cooked with integrity (my steak was delicious). The service was a little sloppy, as the waitress took almost no time to build rapport or romance the menu, but we still enjoyed ourselves. Based on the quality of service I would not classify this as fine dining, but casual dining.

Great food and drinks! I thoroughly enjoyed the poutine, hamburger, and my cocktail. Our server was very friendly and attentive. I will definitely visit Edible Canada again the next time I'm in Canada. I was visiting because I was in Seattle for work for a week. Edible Canada was the best food I had the entire week.

What a jem. Super nice service staff , knowledgeable in Canadian wines and Canadian Foods. Great way to experience all that this beautiful country has to offer. The food, setting, experience should not be missed.

Food at Edible Canada is excellent - local, sustainable, healthy, and delicious. The menu is always updated to reflect the season and feature new ideas. Wine list features local wines. A great place for dinner and the Granville Island setting is a bonus.

Celebrating my Birthday and one of the guests was Celiac so the fact that you offer a full gluten free menu was a huge bonus. Being gluten free doesn't make for bland...the food was absolutely delicious and nicely presented. The drinks were great as well! Excellent Martini!
Thanks so much

Hi always have amazing food and service here. A great place to study, catch up with friends or have a date night. Edible Canada is at the top of my list when it comes to Vancouver restaurants.

I ate lunch here with 5 colleagues while attending the Vancouver Writers Festival on Granville Island. I made reservations a week in advance and had no difficulty even with a largish group of 6 people. While we were at Edibles for lunch, the restaurant was very busy, fully booked and noisy. My dining companion sitting 2 seats away from me could not near me. Our service was pretty good for the most part, with our orders taken quickly, drinks and food coming out promptly, but our server did flip a condescending comment at our table that I flipped right back at him so, hopefully, he won't do that again. I ordered the kale salad and some french fries. My bill came to $21. I thought $14 for a salad was pretty steep. And about that salad ... the best kale salads have mouth-sized pieces of kale that have been "massaged" in a dressing and are tossed with a some other interesting vegetables. The kale salad at Edibles was pretty much nothing but kale in large pieces, rather tough and chewy, with a smattering of other vegetables that were buried in the mounds of kale leaves. The dressing was very tasty though. And my french fries were overcooked, and too crunchy. I really like the concept of Edibles - "promoting local food and highlighting Canadian cuisine" - but they'll have to do better on food prep and price to have me as a return customer.
I was less than thrilled with my kale sa ...
I was less than thrilled with my kale salad served with flank steak. Steak was tough and salad needed to be lightly dressed ahead of time to let the kale "relax" -- I'm never happy with a restaurant if I can do better, at home, with the same ingredients. Canadian Edible has always been a delight in the past -- I'll wait some before trying again.

I have been consistently impressed with the quality and creativity of the food and the drink at Edible Canada. One thing I especially appreciate is that the "side" parts of the entrees are genuinely good in their own right. This is rare.
The food was good but nothing stood out ...
The food was good but nothing stood out as spectacular. For a lack of a better descriptor, it was "reliable". I would say the same for the service...steady but not particularly personable. The water glass was filled with some regularity but the server seemed bored with the effort.
I had only been to this restaurant for special events in the past. There were a surprising number of families with young children. I would not consider this a "date night" type of restaurant but more of a family friendly establishment.
Not a bad choice if you happen to be on the Island already but this would not be a destination restaurant.

We first ate at Edible Canada in January 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience - the food was excellent using fresh, local produce and the staff were delightful. We got chatting to one of the staff, Mick, who came from Manchester. When we went back in October 2016 we caught up with him (get those papers in!) which was really nice. And the place hadn't changed - the food was just as delicious as we remembered and the atmosphere just as friendly. We will be back one day!

The quality of the food here in unbelievable! As it was a cool evening, we both had the pea soup to start. It was the best pea soup I've ever tasted. I added a touch of their ghost pepper salt, and it kicked up the flavor very nicely. Our mains were also fantastic. I just loved every mouthful of my farmers harvest grilled vegetables and flank steak. I can only describe it as a taste you must experience. I'll certainly be back.

Lovely ambience, friendly waiting staff. Tasty food. Limited vegetarian options but the option they had was tasty though not very substantial - salads really. Good for meat-eaters and pescatarians. Fish & chips and the burger are the fav options. We had the kale salad, salmon and veggies. Beautiful presentation.

The food was excellent. We shared the surf and turf and the sable fish was particularly tasty. The duck fat fries were amazing - crisp the way I like them but no greasiness. I liked that all the ingredients and wines, etc., were local. The location at Granville Market makes this place a winner.

We had tickets to a show and wanted dinner before. It was a busy night because the Fringe Festival was on and lots of people were there for dinner before the show. It took over 20 minutes before anyone came to get our drink order and that was only because we asked a bus boy. Our server when finally located was rushed, clearly flustered and a bit rude. We had to flag someone down again to get our drinks refilled. The meal was good, but not excellent. The place isn't particularly comfortable but its adequate. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back.
