Vancouver wine bars/bistros

I have an upcoming week in Vancouver and other than a night at Lumiere am unsure about where to enjoy dinner. I typically enjoy eating/drinking at wine bars and bistros, but am open to other suggestions if the wine and food are enticing. I would greatly appreciate any and all advice. Thank you very much!

    Try Uva at the Moda, Voya, and Salt Tasting Room.

    1. re: fmed

      I second the Salt recommendation. It's as strong as it was in the beginning. Service there has always been fantastic. You can tell the staff is really into what they serve. Was there on the weekend and had a great flight of wines to pair with a cheese plate. The pairings were spot on, including a beautiful sherry to go with some stilton and honey from the Similkameen.

      1. I've really enjoyed Au Petit Chavignol lately. Its a little out of the way and not in the best neighbourhood, but worth the trip.

            I haven't been to APC yet (darn) but friends who have pass on two caveats: it's closed Tues and Wed, and it's quite small so gets crowded early.

            IMO, there are three good wine bars in Vancouver:

            Au Petit Chavignol

          3. I highly recommend Chow, it's not a wine bar or bistro but has that feeling, really great food, a good wine list and it's a very easy place to relax into.
