My child's chicken cutlet was the best juicy chicken cutlet we have had in ages, unlike the usual fare in a kid's meal. Thank you for the effort in preparing a meal for my child with allergies. My pulled-pork sandwich was yummy too, and I particularly liked the pickle that came with the meal. Great service and will like to be back.

Carpaccio and cajun fried oysters were a great start however the rest of the meal was quite disappointing - mussels/frites was intolerably spicy (couldn’t finish more than half), pulled pork poutine was relatively tasteless, and the bone marrow red wine beef was underwhelming.

Came here for a casual family lunch and it was perfect. Portions, seasoning was just right not overly salted, menu was great though dessert could have been more innovative. Service was friendly.

Service was top notch. We were there to celebrate our engagement and were kindly offered sparkling wine on the house. Atmosphere was cozy for the rainy night we visited. The food, unfortunately, failed to meet the same standards. While the meat and cheese board was excellent, and the cocktails after the wine were well made, our main courses arrived with meat items that were dry and lacking in distinct flavor. The fries for the poutine tasted old, like they had been in a freezer for too long, and the gravy also lacked flavor, though the cheese curds were tasty. The vegetables on the side were good and I have no complaints there. Again, we were pleased with the service, but found the food to be a little disappointing.

Our waitress was extremely attentive and helped me comply with a dietary restriction. She even helped my wife, who has mobility issues, out to the car that took us back to our hotel! The food was amazing. I had the Ahi Tuna, which was prepared perfectly and had wonderful flavor and textures. My wife had the Veal Piccata which she reported to be perfectly cooked with an amazing sauce. Dessert was a yellow cake with chocolate icing that was as moist as any that I have ever had. Bravo to the chef and our hardworking waitress!

Conversation was impossible. Restaurant was so loud between the music and very noisy large parties. The short rib was tasty. Tuna was mediocre, veal was tasteless. Lobster risitto was very good. After the meal our table of 8 left to a quiet restaurant to finish so we could actually visit.

It was quite loud and crowded. The service was acceptable, but rushed. The portions while good, were small and pricey, we ended up going somewhere else afterward.

Had a lovely evening with friends. Our server was very accommodating and knowledgeable. Food was good, would recommend the charcuterie board - smart to substitute cucumber slices for crackers for one of us that was celiac. Have to say the main portions pretty small - especially the paella. But would come back :)

Carpaccio tasty. Veal piccata very bland and almost watery taste to both the sauce and the risotto. Service great.

Great places to get delicious ribs in Vancouver

Great places to get delicious ribs in Vancouver

Most people automatically think southern barbecue when they think of ribs, but over at Flying Pig they take the European approach. Braised in red wine, the ribs become incredibly tender and fall right off the bone, just the way they’re supposed to. Flying Pig goes the extra mile, accompanying their ribs with bone marrow and a white cheddar mash, a combination you won’t forget.

Hip places to sip on a glass of wine in Vancouver's Yaletown

The name of this restaurant comes from that rare time when the impossible happens – when what you uttered would occur “when pigs fly” – actually comes true. In this case, it’s culinary creativity meets ordinary food product. Indulge in salt and pepper Humboldt squid or the jumbo short rib macaroni and cheese cauliflower gratin. Add on a glass of Washington riesling or B.C. cabernet merlot, and you’ll have a meal that’s usually only this good when pigs fly.

Where to find finger-licking good ribs in Vancouver

The Flying Pig is a restaurant best described as “nouveau Canadian,” putting a high-end, gastro spin on the best flavours the country has to offer. No matter what time of day you come in, there’s a rib dish that’s unlike anything you’ll have in the city. At lunch, it’s the braised beef short rib jumbo macaroni that’s baked with a cabernet mushroom cream sauce. In the evening, be sure to order the red wine braised beef short rib, which comes with a healthy portion of roasted bone marrow.
