Au Comptoir, Vancouver Reviews - Write a Review
Had an issue with the 'Skirt steak' or 'bavette' for dinner the other night. Though it was tasty as was the rest of my meal, I noticed that it wasn't skirt steak (or even flank) but flat iron steak instead. Upon finishing my meal, I went right to the manager to ask about it. I was met with denial. Spoke to the chef who happily showed me the raw cut that was clearly a flat iron cut. For those that know the difference between the two, they are completely different. The latter being from the abdomen and the former is a shoulder cut. If you question my opinion here, check the images in the google review and you too will see a flat iron steak and not a skirt. Anyways, i happen to love skirt steak and was really disappointed that it wasn't actually skirt steak. Was really surprised that both the manager and more importantly the chef don't know the difference either. The lack of simple knowledge and or integrity in a restaurant here make me question the whole operation. I suppose it would have been nice to have been asked how I would have liked the manager to handle the situation too rather than be met with denial and refusal to acknowledge my perspective. So I calmly payed and left and here I am sharing my experience in hopes to help another.
Food was good and service was decent. We had the duck and burger and both came out perfect. Service could've been better because we had to wait a while to wave down a waitress/waiter whenever we wanted something. Quite pricey for a lunch meal but will revisit just for the food.
Charming! My husband and I stopped in for lunch. It was lovely. So much Character. From the sewing tables to the doors which open up in the front like being transported to old France. The food was fresh and tasty. Service was very efficient. The desserts looked amazing. But we were too full to try one. All in all a great time. We will return.
Being French myself there is a feeling of authenticity in this place. The food is simply delicious with fresh ingredients and traditional French cuisine. The garçons are the greatest with wits and humour...
I had 30 minutes to kill before meeting up with family and it was pouring rain. I asked for a seat at the bar which had 4 empty seats and was told that the bar is only for "dinner customers" and that I wouldn't be welcome for a drink. I would have had at least one cocktail and some appetizers but being turned away in favor of "dinner customers" really turned me off. In addition, I was offered zero explanation other than "the bar is for dinner groups." What's the point of a bar if as a solo diner I can't sit? Doess place shame you if you want to just come in for a drink and a snack? Are they struggling that hard to get by? Seems like it. I've never been turned away as a solo diner before in Vancouver. Seems like the server and bar staff were cherry picking big groups for tips. Would not recommend.
