The Rundown:
Stopped in to soak up the French atmosphere and try some craft cocktails. Let me tell you, I’m bummed I didn’t get to try any food – the menu looked pretty darn delicious. Tableau Bar Bistro, in the Loden Hotel, is one of Vancouver’s finest French gems.

Atmosphere:
The atmosphere was light and simple. Unpretentious yet smart. The perfect Vancouver brasserie.

Service:
A little on the slow side, despite the empty restaurant, but our French server was very pleasant.

To Drink:
I’m quite sad we were so rushed, because I was only able to try one cocktail; the 1181 ($11) – gin, elderflower syrup, lemonade, sparkling wine, and garnished with a curl of lemon. I enjoyed it; sweet but refreshing. My coworker decided on a Cochinchina ($6), from their non-alcoholic section. It was a mix of coconut water, rose water syrup, and lime juice.

Overall:
I will definitely be popping in again to try some of their food and more cocktails (mmmmmm)

For Next Time:
Oysters ($3-$4), French Onion Soup ($12), or Steak Frites ($24). With the ‘Autumn On My Mind’ cocktail ($11); vodka, apple / pear puree, vermouth, vanilla + maple shrub, ginger beer. nomnomnom
