Reviews

24 Hours - Vancouver
—Sarah Rowland
May 13, 2011

"...They were right, every last one of ’em. Les Faux Bourgeois (663 E. 15th Ave) is pretty damn perfect. Now, I too am one of those annoying people saying “Oh my God, you haven’t been to Les FauxBo? You have to go there. It’s sooooo good.”

Go ahead, be sneaky.  If you order for the table and don’t show anyone the menu, they’ll think you blew a small bundle on flakey tarte flambée Alsacienne, lamb sirloin napped a glossy sherry reduction and other richly braised French bistro classics.

NORTHWEST PALATE 
Laurie Guy 
Nov/Dec 2009

"...With traditional offerings, such a rich and flavorful pâté de campagne, steak frites, and duck confit, one feels the flavor of Paris seep in.  A fresh board offers up equally worthy specials that change each night...."

SALUT LES BON VIVANTS DE VANCOUVER!

“Uncork the wine, enjoy the dance, and let the Gods decide the rest!”—Horace

Here comes the cooler weather of the Fall and Winter, and of course, the comforting cold-weather classics. The Parmentiers and the Cassoulet are back, all done in hearty Fauxbo’ style - after all, we can’t let you out into the ‘chill’ with anything less than a full belly!

Our Veal Shank Parmentier, is a luscious dish made with a ragout of slow-cooked Veal shank and which is crowned with a creamy pomme purée gratinée! Another cold weather classic, is our Cabillaud, a dish of Pacific Cod, savoy cabbage, cod croquettes and Manila clam pan jus– “c’est arrivé”: the Winter menu is here!

For those planning holiday parties, we will be open through December 23rd, closed for Christmas, and then re-open on December 27th. We'll also be closed January 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and re-opening on the 4th.
Our New Year's Eve menu can be found here.

We'd like to thank all the kind and enthusiastic critics and food bloggers, who have made the trek to come and see us tucked away just north of the now blossoming Kingsway and Fraser. Thanks to the readers of the Westender for choosing ‘Les Fauxbo’ as one of their favourite French destinations in the city, and for wonderful kudos from Vancouver Magazine and The Georgia Straight (Stars of 2016 and Golden Plates 2016). And thanks to the readers and contributors of Urban Spoon and Yelp for their kind words!

We thank USA Today who have chosen Les Faux Bourgeois for their list of the Ten Best French Restaurants in Vancouver! Their article can be found here. We have a fine ‘ensemble’ cast that is working hard to earn all these sentiments.

We're very pleased to have been featured in The East Van Foodie, a book on the food scene on the East Side featuring recipes and stories from iconic East Vancouver eateries.

As always, reservations are recommended although we do keep the dinner-bar ‘unreserved’ for our walk-in customers. And for those who want to share "l’amour”, we are pleased to offer gift certificates for purchase.


Salut and a beautiful Winter to you all!
