So nice to find this French bistro.
After a week in Vancouver, I got rather bored with "superfood salads" and wanted something less righteous. Chanced upon this little restaurant while looking at shops on West 4th Ave. Very glad that we did. The onion soup was delicious and I was transported back to Paris. Then a Duck Confit Sandwich which was full of flavour and worked especially well with the berries (blueberries..?) Yum! My husband had a filled omlette, a bit like a Framer's Omlette, with salad and sauté potatoes. It was lovely and filling.
The service was very nice. The waitress was friendly and polite. The atmosphere wasn't quite French, but at least the flavours were. Hope it is still there when we visit Vancouver next time.

"A Must Visit"
My husband and I went in here for lunch on our last day in Vancouver.
The food and service were exceptional. I have never tasted flavours like the ones we got here. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Good wine selection also.
I wished we had been staying longer as would have loved to have returned. M

"It could not have been more perfect!"
We went here to celebrate a birthday. It could not have been more perfect! There were 3 of us, each having something different. We tasted each other's dishes and pronounced them all very delicious. I would have been very happy to have had any of the dishes. The server was wonderful and very attentive. The pace of the meal was great. You want something more when you are celebrating - and this was the perfect place!

"Beautifully made French food"
Beautifully made French food, from casual to finest filet mignon... I love this place and always take my friends and family members from out of town here. It is a special place, lovely service and food. Tuesdays are 'bring your own wine' days. The ambience is casual, friendly, with lovely interior. Dropping by for brunch, lunch or afternoon charcuterie or a bowl of their fabulous onion soup and bread, or going for a special dinner, it's Kitsilano at its best!

"Our Lucky Day"
Today my wife and I had the occasion to visit a shop on 4th avenue. As we were walking back to the car, we happened to walk by La Cigale Bistro. On a whim we stepped in for lunch. Our lucky day. Our server was great, I watched him interact with all patrons and he was wonderful with everyone. I am very particular about coffee and the coffee here is great. Cooking is my chief passion and one of my favourite venues is French. Our lunches were absolutely superb! The ambience is of a cozy little bistro,
Will we be back, absolutely! Dinner next

“Our local neighbourhood gem!”
This little restaurant has always been good but we have not been for over a year and now it is superb! I believe there has been a change in ownership. Certainly the décor has been updated and the friendly and professional serving staff were new to us. The portions are very generous and for us we shared the incredible home-made pate before our mains of the tenderloin steak with blue cheese crust and a special of the evening, the steelhead. Thank goodness for take-away boxes! For deserts the crème brule, while managed by me, was really big enough and rich enough to be an- other good choice for sharing. With excellent quality food at a fair price and a good wine list this is definitely one of the top restaurants on the 4th Avenue strip.
