I've been vegetarian for over 5 years now and I love eating out. Over the years I've eaten at a lot of places, some fancy, some lucky finds. Of all the places the experience we had at The Acorn Restaurant was up there, if not...More

Stayed downtown for a conference and was curious to check out a different neighborhood and had read strong reviews of the Acorn. I was not disappointed. A well appointed restaurant that was keyed to warmth and simple culinary sophistication that was not overly pretentious. The...More

After finding my other choices on Main Street either closed down (The Foundation) or way too busy (Slickity Jim's), we decided to try The Acorn for brunch based on the suggestion of a barista in the neighbourhood. So glad! Nice decor and atmosphere, excellent service,...More

I ate at Acorn on a recent trip into Vancouver. It was suggested by a business associate. The restaurant is a small, beautiful space with limited seating. Staff is attentive, informed and friendly. The standout, of course, is the food. I very rarely eat vegetarian...More

South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing.
Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in
converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once
an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage
and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor
galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting
studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a
strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new

We will be in Vancouver for one night before an Alaska cruise. Considering The Acorn and Graze (The Parker is closed that night). Like the menu for Acorn a bit more than Graze but unhappy about the no reservation policy. We will be there for a Tuesday night at the end of June and we would prefer to eat no earlier than 6:30. If you have been to both, any opinion on making a reservation at Graze vs trying The Acorn at 6:30? Thanks!

Hi, I think you will have no problem getting at table at that time on a Tuesday. Don't know Graze. Enjoy
