The Oakwood Canadian Bistro, a casual neighbourhood room specializing in down-to-earth Canadian fare. The Oakwood Canadian Bistro's food philosophy is focused on fresh, house-made dishes crafted from locally sourced products. The seasonally changing menu caters to market availability and the sustainability of the products. All meats are organic, local and free of hormones and antibiotics, while the seafood is sustainable, seasonal and Ocean Wise certified. From the breads and pastas to the butchery and sauces, all products are made in-house with quality and consistency.The Oakwood Canadian Bistro serves fresh, honest food in a casual neighbourhood environment. This modest Kitsilano room encourages diners to gather around the central communal table with old and new friends, sip wine and BC craft beers or one of their classic cocktails and linger over one of Chef Ryan Murphy's seasonally driven dishes.

"Be expected to have a 3-hour long dinner if you plan to do the 6 course dinner menu :)"

Bouche is a California-French restaurant with an oft-changing seasonal menu and a focus on small plates created by Chef Danny Murcia. The beer and wine list is centered on small producers from both California and France.<br /><br />Counter seating is available on a first come first serve basis.<br />

Lily Mae's is a bistro cafe in the heart of Vancouver's vibrant Gastown area. This cozy, full service restaurant has much of its decor and menu inspired by a European bistro combined with a home-style, rustic approach-ability. With fewer than 30 seats split between an airy, bright main level and a cozy, intimate mezzanine, Lily Mae's strives to make guests feel like they are in someone's home...because they are. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch!

"Nice quaint restaurant in Gastown, some great dishes on the menu. The french onion soup was delicious. Service was attentive and was really on top of paying attention to details, such as a handwritten thank you card when the bill came. Most surprisingly, he owner came to greet us in the end as we were leaving with 2 gift cards for a brunch entree (one for each couple). We left as happy guests, will definitely go back to try their brunch!"
