I would speculate that most restaurants would be able too. Just ask prior to ordering which dishes are nut free.

I would say that any decent restaurant would be prepared to meet your needs. I would suggest phoning ahead to discuss this situation when you are ready to make a reservation. We are very conscious here of allergies and dietary needs. Quite a bit of gluten free (celiac disease) awareness. Quite a focus on healthy eating. All chefs would be very aware of nut allergies and would respond very favourably to your request but would appreciate some advanced notice about it, 2-3 hours maybe. This would ensure that you get what you need.

I once was in a restaurant in St. John's, really late and tired, and said, I want to order off menu, this is what I would like. (no allergies involved) Would you mind checking with the kitchen. The chef was completely accommodating and made my day!

You can get your mouth watering by browsing http://www.yelp.ca/vancouver and jotting down some phone numbers.

As others said, we are pretty allergy aware,, but I would phone down and ask to talk to chef,, since peanut/nut allergies can be so life threatning I think it is important to discuss that even cross contaimination can be lethel,, no cutting veggies on the board then just chopped the pecans on etc..

What type of food do you like, sushi, steakhouse, seafood, high end, low end, Italian , French , Thai, Vietnmese, Chinese, etc etc... it would help if you desrcribe a bit more of what you are looking for.
