Launched in 2013 in the heart of Vancouver’s historic Gastown district by industry veterans Chef Roy Flemming, Colin Ross and James MacFarlane, Tuc Craft Kitchen prides itself on serving rustic, seasonal, farm-to-table fare paired with a carefully curated list of New & Old World wines, inventive cocktails, and local craft beer.
Great food and great employees. Would've been 5 stars but they insist on using plates and dishes that are just slightly too small. I had the chorizo & spuds and the sausage was bigger than the skillet it was served in.

Atmosphere was great with a modern hipster vibe and the food was good too! The chicken and waffles are a big portion so I’d recommend splitting it with someone. The chicken itself was juicy but I wish they where more liberal with the sauce. The skillet was very savoury which is what we were looking for and I’d come again to try some of their other dishes.

Great selection for brunch. Simple classics and great chorizo. Our $80 umbrella was stolen and while we were there, and our only compensation was a brief apology. Thankfully they did offer us an old umbrella that had been left there from days previous. Kind service with a smile. Rarely busy

Went there today with friends visiting from overseas as they were on their flight out. We ordered Pork Belly Crackling, Hanger Steak, Fish Stew and Two Way Pork Chop.
However, the Pork Chop turned out raw, the salmon was very fishy and slightly rare. I asked and the manager said salmon is typically cooked this way and my friend didn’t really wanna eat the Pork Chop again. This was my 3rd time to this restaurant and I thought I would give it a try again. I wouldn’t be back again for the 4th just because the food was getting from bad to worst. And the menu hasn’t changed for the last 4 years.
However, the Pork Belly Crackling was good. Service was great.
Chef needs to be more careful before serving raw meat to customers.

Came here for brunch today with a couple of girlfriends. I ordered the spam & eggs and asked for the eggs to be poached hard because unfortunately I cannot eat runny eggs, I get a very bad stomach ache. The very nice server said she would ask the Chef. She came back shortly to tell me that the chef refused my request because it would ruin the integrity of the dish. But I could order anything else from the menu. Well all but two of their brunch dishes has sunny side up eggs & if he wasn't going to "ruin" the integrity of the dishes by cooking the eggs hard my only option was chicken & waffles or waffles & whateva. As I wasn't feeling like waffles & the fact that this pretentious, arrogant chef cared more about his ego & the "integrity" of his dish than the health & well being of his patrons, I was no longer interested in spending any money there. So I politely declined & said that I had my heart set on that dish and if I can't have that I will just stick with my coffee. My friends ordered their meals, which came quickly, was well presented & looked delicious. When it came time to pay the bill, the server was very nice & comped my coffee, which I was very grateful for.
If you are okay with runny eggs (I really wish I could eat them) then I would give this place a try. But if you have any food sensitivities or allergies, I would look through the menu first before going because chances are they will not accommodate your simple requests & you'll either have to order something you don't want or go hungry.
I could have given this place 3 stars for the fact my friends enjoyed their meals, but this review is based on my experience not theirs & therefore I gave them one star because our server was nice.
