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.

Portions are small and tasty, though rather expensive. If cost and value are a factor, gourmands might find the value in the cost. Menu was original and unique. However, I wanted to eat more and appreciate the intention a bit less.

My first time at Edible Canada. Was there for Saturday brunch. The quality of the food was outstanding. Fresh, local, tasty and plated very welll.
The server was smart and pleasant. The only issue was she had to attend to several tables, making it difficult to get her attention.

The food was great!!!
My feedback would be: I had the thai chicken wings that were delicious but there were way too many of them. I would have preferred less wings with a little salad on the side.
Thanks! We enjoyed our meals and service!

Found a hair in the food. Gross. Had only taken three bites and then stopped eating- didn't really feel like reordering anything new....guess I lost my appetite😏. Waitress was kind enough to take off 50% of the meal. Yes, you read that right -I found a long hair cooked into my eggs after 3 bites and was still charged 50%. Poor form😤

Although the food was good, it was not what was indicated in the menu. For example, some of us ordered the fish soaked in gin etc. but it was not enough for a meal and there was no indication on the menu that it was just an appetizer. Another of us ordered a salad and it was very insubstantial for a main course salad. A third ordered another fish dish that came in a bun although there was no indication that it would be in a bun. The noise level was way above ambience. It was deafening, coming mainly from the chefs from behind the counter. We will not be returning.

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.
