Fantastic food, great ambiance and the service was top notch. Get the pork belly appetizer, it will change your life.
The receptionist was really efficient and managed the front end very well. Our waitress was very courteous and helpful and pleasant to deal with. The food was delicious (I had the Ox Tail) . All in all, an extremely pleasant evening.
Great cocktails. Really loved the reggae on broadway! And the dark and stormy. The food was okay… not as authentic but okay. The neighbourhood of the restaurant is something else though. East Hastings… a lot of drugged up people right outside the restaurant. All really docile

Coconut dumplings are a MUST! Veggie stack was a generous portion and delicious.
So so yummy! Great service, great vibe and super delicious food.
Had a great time! Food, music, and service was excellent. Made me feel at home. Calabash will be a regular spot for me :)
I’ve been coming here since they opened pretty much... never disappointed and the owners are amazing humans all around.
Always a pleasure to be here and always looking forward to the next time!
Food and service is exceptional. One of the caribbean bistro worth to dine for.
Great experience. 2 couples. Loved the DJ; provided some normalcy. I believe Maria was fantastic.
Such a great vibe - lively, friendly and so fun! Loved the music and the service was excellent. Whatever you do, make sure you order their signature Dark & Stormy - they make their own ginger beer and it is incredible.
Seating is tight
An excellent Caribbean cuisine and culture experience. Highly recommend the dark and stormies, rum punch and anything to do with their jerk seasoning/sauces on the menu.
I had tried Calabash 3 years ago when I was here on business. I loved it. I had been bragging about it to my wife, who is West Indian, and told her I would take her someday. I booked a trip for us 2 months ago and booked a reso right after I booked my flight...It was a priority. When arrived, the hostess was great, asked if we had been before and I told her I had and that we were in Vancouver just to eat at Calabash. Once again the food didn't disappoint. It was very good and got the seal of approval from my wife. However where things kind of went off the rails a bit was even though I had made the reso at the beginning of June for dinner for August 28th, we were sat at at table in the basement, along the hallway to the bathroom. And no sooner did we sit down (like I was still pulling in my chair) someone approached us to tell us that there was another reservation for this table later on so we had to be finished and out in 2 hours. Now, we didn't have any intention of staying anywhere near 2 hours ( we were done and out in 1 hour 15), but we really didn't appreciate being placed in the basement when we had made the reservation 10 weeks ago and were then being warned to leave before we had literally settled in to our seats. Our actual server was very good...polite, pleasant and helpful. The hostess at the main entrance, also very pleasant. The hostess working the basement...not so much. Honestly, my immediate reaction was to get up and walk out, but I wanted my wife to try the food. Not sure I'll go back after that. It was if they didn't want my business...after flying 4000 miles and making Caslabash our first priority after checking into our hotel. Too bad. I'm pretty sure that is not in any Business 101 textbook.
My favorite Caribbean spot in town. The food is always incredible the atmosphere is always a vibe.
Tastiest chicken wings, delicious coconut dumplings, refreshing mango salad and the dark and stormy' cocktails kept on coming. Incredible value for money, great vibe on the lower floor where there's a live DJ playing later on in the evening. Oh and our server Ria was outstanding, I commend her for her calm poise seeing a large table and getting everything right from start to finish... What a pro! Thank you Ria.
Very good comfort food and not too expensive. Excellent service.
This restaurant is a hidden gem and definitely worth visiting. The food is incredible and authentic and atmosphere is fun. Get a table in the basement to hear the live DJ. Can get louder in the later evening and has a party vibe.
First off, the host could not find my reservation. The music is not themed to the restaurant anymore. I was expecting reggae or soul music not top 40. Although the food was good the place has gone so far downhill. The seats are torn, the music was awful, and there was no point making a reservation at all. We got a crappy seat in the middle of the restaurant even though we were celebrating our anniversary. I won't be back anytime soon unless they make improvements.
Amazing server, super knowledgeable, professional, patient with dietary restrictions. Food was extremely tastey, huge portions.
Fantastic food & service, great vibe as always
Food was so good! Joshua was an awesome server. Can’t wait to go back.

The food was amazing and almost looked too pretty to eat!
The food here was absolutely outstanding, I'll definitely be back!
Took my dad and Bro to visit they loved it. The Rum flights are a must try. Music and hosts were wonderful and it’s a must return for me and anyone trying to find somewhere Caribbean to call a new home
Food is always amazing and the staff were very welcoming! Felt like home.
Food was delicious and great portions.
Amazing staff as well and topped with fantastic music made for a memorable night :)
Was delicious as always. The speaker was right above us and the staff were very good at trying to keep the music down. But the server said it’s an old system and the volume control is touchy. But certainly did not ruin the evening. So nice to be back there.
My girlfriend and I loved everything about this restaurant. Friendly service, high quality authentic tasting food and a great vibe. Some of the best food and one of our favourite new date spots.
Great food ambiance and vibe. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to family and friends 2 thumbs up and a full belly!
Honestly one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. Outstanding food and service. Black owned and serving it up right. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Amazing place and food. The drinks are a must here.
Had a great time!! Great food, awesome music and just a good vibe.
Great customer service and it's a good value for the quality of food you get. Thumbs up for their cocktails!
It was such a great experience, but obviously in such a sketchy neighborhood!
