The Best French Restaurants in Vancouver 2023

Gold: St. Lawrence

Michelin-starred St. Lawrence takes home gold for the third time in this category, serving up chef J.C. Poirier’s rustic yet refined ode to Quebecois cuisine. “St. Lawrence is simply irresistible,” raved one judge. “Highly inventive, full-flavoured and unapologetically decadent.” Dishes like venison loin mini-tourtière and beef tartare with marinated mushrooms, foie gras and buckwheat make this Railtown spot a destination for local and international diners alike.
