The BBB burger with blue cheese was excellent. Enjoyed the grilled avocado half. Sugarless iced tea is a plus as well as
an unsweetened Arnold Palmer. My guest from Tokyo also enjoyed the BBB burger. The gift shop was a welcome addition to our Granville Island food and souvenir shopping. Short wait even with a lunch reservation.

Ambiance was nice. Service was slow. Mistake was made with our entrees. They were brought to the wrong table, back to the kitchen, and then reserved to us. Soup was cold and mussels were warm (not steaming as they were when brought out to the wrong table). Waitress took back the soup and a new one was served. French fries were fantastic though. Would recommend to a friend for fries.

Creative spin on some Canadian favourites!
We had a wonderful experience , super friendly service from our hostess to our waitress to the other patrons!
The outdoor patio had a chill but the cute red blankets and spicer Caesars kept us warm!
Great atmosphere !
AND we witnessed the most amazing Jenga game ever!!!!!

My two out-of-town guests and I brunched and really enjoyed our dishes (two had Benedicts and one the Avocado Toast topped with mixed mushrooms, poached eggs and hollandaise.) Little details were exceptional - like a wonderful Americano and eggs poached perfectly medium upon my request. It was great to take visitors to a restaurant with such high-quality, local ingredients.
Service was both efficient and pleasant, and the shaded patio was lovely.
My only, tiny criticism relates to the sugar bowls. Clearly, previous patrons had stirred their coffee with the sugar spoon before putting it back into the bowl; with attendant encrustations. A more hygienic serving mechanism (e.g. a pouring dispenser or individual packets) would be preferred.

Everything was great except they forgot my lemonade until the very end. Almost finished my meal, then they served my lemonade. We finally had to track a waitress down to get that for me. Otherwise, everything was great.

This is our go to restaurant for pre-theatre (Arts Club). We had a wonderful waitress and the fish and chips meals were great. Regretfully I did not have the same experience and wanted to let you know why. My salad had the smoked sturgeon and the salmon. I did not see that the salmon was also smoked. If I had I would not had ordered it. Both fish were so salty it was impossible to eat. I left the restaurant hungry. We'll try again but only because of very good service and the location. We know what not to order that's for sure!

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.
