Pourhouse Vancouver

Recommended Posts

Looks like you and Helen had a good evening.

I love the Pourhouse. Such assured and well put together food, smart and grown up space, solid and confident service. This place feels like a well oiled machine already. Tremendous addition to Gastown - I've been recommending it to my friends since I was there earlier this week.

Alexandra Grill just gave Pourhouse a stellar review in the G&M:

Hot boîte delivers a surprise serving of nostalgia

I was there one Monday a couple of weeks back - very impressed. The place was full by about 7pm. One thing I really appreciated was the noise level. It's a very good room for conversation, and they don't crank the music up like many restaurants and most bars seem to do these days. The Diamond has also been great in this respect.

I had a great experience at Pourhouse recently, on a date with my better half. He had the scallops and the campfire trout, which came out very hot and wrapped in foil. I was really pleased with the beef shortribs, and the carrot puree was a nice addition. I ended the meal with a manhattan and he had an old fashioned, because I guess our mood was very Mad Men that night :]

The service was decent, but I think we came in just as our waitress was ending her shift so our table was swapped for another waitress who wasn't very attentive. It didn't detract from the quality of the food/drink in any way, and I'm sure the next time I go the service will be fine.

I really enjoyed Pourhouse and can't wait to go back :]

I agree with you on the service - which can be a little disconnected from the rest of the room. I've found that sitting at the bar results in the best service. The bar team is stellar - smart, informative, and helpful. And the food shows alot of talent.

Pourhouse might be getting some big tourist attention from Sam Sifton's great review :)
