One of the first nights we were allowed to have indoor dining after COVID restrictions, we happened to find Forage right near our hotel. Dinner for the two of us was two shared appetizers- Bison carpaccio and duck liver pate. These were both elegant and...delicious. We followed that by sharing an entree of gnocchi with fiddleheads and mushroom ‘soil’ and Parmesan cheese. Very rich and delicious. With a glass of wine the bill was close to $100. But worth every penny! Highly recommend it.More

By far, this is the best brunch I have had in Vancouver, BC Canada in a long time! Love the ambiance, service, cleanliness, and most importantly their food was creative and super tasty! Thank you very much Forage. Highly recommended, meter parking all around, on...a Sunday, make reservations day or two, ahead of time. We ordered French Toast, Brisket Hash (super tender) non greasy at all, Turkey sausage and Eggs skillet without hash potatoes extra vegetables instead (zucchini,squash,tomatoes,peppers,kale) multigrain toast was my favorite, just the right amount of butter and crunch is important in a piece of toast,to me. So Delish! Definitely will return. Cheers.More

One our first trips out after the loosening of the covid restrictions in BC. We headed downtown and decided to try Forage. We had the "small plate" local artisanal cheese board & the "large plate" of house-made charcuterie and smoked duck breast, rhubarb and maple...‘butter’, Canados compressed rhubarb, pan fried risotto, port jus. The entire meal was excellent. All fresh ingredients prepared perfectly. We had the "Covert Farms ‘MDC’" which was a nice smooth easy drinking red wine. The service was on point as well. I will definitely be going back and I definitely recommend giving it a try.More

I was recently at Forage to celebrate a major milestone with some friends. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a lovely atmosphere, great food, and warm and attentive staff. I ordered the bison steak and tasted my friend's gnocchi. Delicious. Our server Sebastian checked...on our table often, but never interrupted the flow of our conversation, and came to speak with us when appropriate. This small detail showed he was very sensitive to the needs of his clients. He also recommended a beautiful bottle of wine by Pentâge which suited our price range. It was a memorable evening and I'll be returning.More

My second time in Vancouver and second visit to Forage, first trip was a business trip on this occasion I bought my husband. Delicious clever food. Great that it’s all locally sourced from artisan food producers. We had bison, gnocchi and duck. Service relaxed and...professional- obviously very proud of their menu and philosophy. Not sure when we will be back - but certainly when I do - this restaurant will be in the list.More

Good service and nice atmosphere but the menu is misleading. You need to order several items which are small portions and share them like tapas. What looks like a reasonable menu soon adds up to get a good meal leaving you satisfied.

I’m not one for perching on a bar stool to eat ! This restaurant however has convinced me that it can be done and was so much fun. The food & wine pairings were superb.

Excellent brunch in downtown Vancouver. The food here is phenomenal, everything from the main dishes down to the house made ketchup and jam. It has a hipster vibe & it’s a super cool place to enjoy a meal.

Innovative food. Good service. Reasonable prices. Do order the items above, as they were excellent! Fish was a little bland.

Enthusiastic and friendly server. Enjoyed the famous chowder, as well as the bison and sablefish. Being picky, I would have liked the food to be a bit hotter. The cheese puff dessert was disappointing and lacked the finesse of the other dishes. Overall a good...experience with interesting flavours and at a fair price.More
