What exactly is Dine Out Vancouver?

The 15th Annual Dine Out Vancouver Festival is back with 280+ restaurants participating in this year’s event. Dine Out Vancouver will take place starting January 20 through February 5, 2017.

Tourism Vancouver’s Dine Out™ Vancouver Festival is a food and drink festival that gives foodies/food enthusiasts an experience to taste Vancouver’s culturally diverse food scene.

Participating restaurants will offer a multi-course Prix Fixe menu, Prix Fixe means, “Fixed Price”.

Dine Out Vancouver also collaborates with business owners in the Food and Beverage industry, to provide unique programs like the Winter Beer Hall, Brunch Crawls of Gastown, Vancouver World Chef Exchange, Vancouver’s Best Roasting, Coffee & Beer Tour and more.

How much will it cost?

The price of the Prix Fixe menus is $20, $30 and $40 with the $20 menu usually being the Dine Out Lunch menu if available.

Pricing for the tours, tastings and demonstrations may vary from one another. Some events, for example, the tours/crawls, may cost you $29-$100 per person. This will cover the food, drinks and services that are included in the events package. There are also a few events that are by donation which is still worthy of checking out.

Reservations

Make reservations for the Dine Out Vancouver Festival now.

Check out the listing here —>RESTAURANT & RESERVATIONS  

Reservations may vary from each restaurant and here are a few booking statuses that you may encounter:

  1. Booking Status: Accepting Reservations
  2. Booking Status: Reservations not accepted, 1st come 1st served
  3. Booking Status: Weekends Sold Out, Accepting Weekday Reservations

You don’t need to book a reservation through the Dine Out Vancouver website. I would recommend calling the restaurants if you encounter something like status #3. I’m unsure how, when and if the Dine Out Vancouver website will update their booking statuses. People cancel reservations all the time and you may be lucky to secure your party a spot if you simply call the restaurant.

 

Final Thoughts

This will be my third year participating in the dining portion of Dine Out Vancouver. My family and I have tried many restaurants during this festival. A few of them are Ciao Bella, Dunn’s Famous Restaurant, Kamei Royale Japanese Restaurant, Kobe Japanese Steakhouse, Miku and The Keg Steakhouse.

 

The Dine Out Vancouver Festival allows chefs to showcase their talents and guide their guests through an amazing dining experience. I’ll be ready to snap some photos of the wonderful creations this year and share it with all of you. Maybe next year I will be joining in on one of the tours.
