My friend and I went to Kobe for drinks and dinner, it was awesome. We had a couple drinks in the Izakaya Lounge beforehand, then went upstairs for dinner.
The food was fresh and fabulous, the service was excellent and we were happy campers. I look forward to bringing some friends who are visiting next month to Kobe, I think they will really enjoy it!
How hard is it to cook an egg the way some one wants it? I have tried over and over again to get a decent breakfast at the Slocan, I like the servers, I think they are great but the cook must have been trained in a mens prison.. seriously HIRE A CHEF! and btw ripping off whatever they have on the menu at the diner down the street isn't going to impress anyone if you do a crappier job of it!
Have you guys ever heard of QUALITY CONTROL?
I bothered to smile at the new owner lady who sits in the back after my crappy burnt hashbrows/ over fried eggs/ shriveled sausages.. and the she gave me a dirty look! lol!! I guess your so stressed out your restaurant is flailing that you can't toss a smile at one of your customers.
I go to Pho Boi so often because of good food.Not the discount on purpose yet .I am very glad when they just show a sign "EVERY 10 GET 1 FREE"
I LOVE IT
we love it
and for sure you will love it too
Hurry up let go check it out .Im so exciting.
I had a Ferrero Rocher slush, and it was fantastic - a chocolate, wafer and hazelnut milkshake basically, and surprisingly, not too sweet! The only complaint is the price - at about $6, it's pretty steep. The only saving grace is that the standard size is huge, so if you come here after dinner, it's big and rich enough to split between 2 people.
I've been here twice for their delicious, freshly made waffles. I get their Belgian style, and it comes with a bit of ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and an assortment of berries. The price is right, though it takes a while as they are made to order. They also have fruit slushes - I had the pineapple, and next time, I'll ask them not to sweeten it as much. I can't wait to return!
Came here for my sister's birthday, and 4 out of 5 of us ordered off a promotional menu at a reduced price.
Ambiance: The space is lovely, with high ceilings and fireplaces burning all around. It's very dark inside though. Good for a date, not quite so good for a family meal.
Service: Fantastic wait staff! After our main meals took a long time to come, they gave us complimentary amuse bouches. When my sister got a little queasy, they offered her peppermint tea (which we had to decline) and got a plastic bag for us when we asked (just in case!). The manager also spoke to us as we were paying, giving us a box of their chocolates to compensate for my sister-in-law's meal that was sent back.
Value: It's a high end restaurant with a dress code and waterfront views, but it is vastly overpriced. The quality and execution of the food is not worth the price they are charging.
Food: The evening started well, with hot, tasty bread and the biggest, juiciest mussels I have ever had. A 40 minute wait for our entrees though, was not worth it. "Overcooked" describes pretty much everything we ate, with the salmon, steak and scallops all being overcooked. The worst was our seafood pastas - rubbery seafood, bland and watery sauce, and mostly noodles. Terrible, to the point that my sister-in-law sent hers back (the first time I have EVER seen her do this). The amuse bouche was also rather lame - poached shrimp with cocktail sauce; we expected a little more innovation. The desserts were standard chocolate cake (couldn't taste the advertised Earl Grey flavour) and cheesecake (bland red velvet top). The drinks were quite tasty, though I was disappointed they only had one non-alcoholic option.
Nothing tasted BAD, just rather standard and boring - for the occasion and the price tag, we expected more - a LOT more. It's possible they shafted us because we didn't pay full price, and if that's the case, there's no reason to give them our money in the first place. Until they step things up, we will not be returning, not even for the wonderful wait staff.
Caught up with our group attending conference for breakfast at the Vancouver hotel restaurant. 80,s décor but great room spacious, bright and airy. They had a nice buffet but I opted for their omlette and that was delicious, done perfect and being a rush group were served in time. Big cup of caffe latte. Truly fulfilling.
Small sandwich shop serving limited menu. Pulled pork Sandwiches are awesome and filling. For under $ 10 great value for fresh sandwich. its a hidden gem close to robson street. The service was quick and prompt and the restaurant was very clean. Didn't had the chance to go back and try more.
Attending conference at the Hyatt, I was craving for some hearty Indian food. When travelling its always hard to find one that satisfies. Went with Colleagues for Lunch and was amazed by the quality and taste of the food. Great location just in the next block from our hotel, super clean, bright airy spacious room, white linen. Quick and prompt service. Food all tasted delicious and the buffet was always replenished fresh and hot. There was a slight delay for the refill of naans and chai but quiet understandable they were busy and rather we were in a rush to catch up our sessions. For $16 and change that was the best meal we had 3 days in a row. Just don't over eat.
Every time I have duck at restaurants, it ends up being too greasy and I feel bloated after... not at L'Abattoir. Their duck breast was amazing, very flavourful and juicy but not overwhelming. My boyfriend ordered the Steak Diane which is just as excellent... his plate actually looked like a work of art... almost too beautiful to eat. We then shared the Milk Chocolate and Earl Grey pot de creme for dessert and wow was that ever smooth. Loved the cookie bits in it as well for that nice crunch. I will definitely go back to L'Abattoir for more. The only thing I didn't like was that it was a little loud, even for a Wednesday, but I guess that's a sign of how popular this restaurant is. Thanks for having us tonight!
This is cleaner place with better taste in food the the owner Edward lied to all his customers about closing the place down which in fact he sold the place to the chef in mid sept and continued telling customers that he is closing the place down and moving to Langley..to me Edward sounds like a bad business men when he really sold the place..Shame On You Edward....
Normally going out to this place has been a good experience, but we came on a Sunday night one time. We had just gotten there before the dinner rush and because we were there about 4:45?, we had thought that service would be reasonable. It took about 15 minutes for a waiter/ waitress to take our order. Then suddenly ,of course, there was a dinner rush.
The most unreasonable wait I have had in a restaurant was on this Sunday, 45 minutes.
I really did not feel like writing a bad review but there was yet a few more problems.
As I observed, 3 other tables of people, who arrived AFTER we had been there for now, an hour, got served their food FIRST. I had gotten ready to leave when my partner said to wait.
It was a very disrespectful gesture to us.
I was dressed up and ready to have a nice dinner, but felt this wait was unreasonable.
When we got our dinner, it was cold. the only thing hot was the rice... so meanwhile 3 other tables of people (who had arrived 20 minutes after we had been there, got served first), we had cold cold food.
the only good thing was getting free tea. that was about it.
I mean I understand they were busy, but it seemed understaffed and they should bring in more people to work the weekends maybe? And prioritizing your order of orders is such a basic business practice....
the quality was just not there that night and we both felt really unappreciated
It took a "quick" 10 minutes for a different waitress to fetch our bill, just because they wanted to seat more people (of course) and didn't thank us at the end either.
It was brutal. I won't be returning unfortunately.
I can get better Asian food downtown Burnaby, and within an hour we could have gone to Burnaby....
The food was edible, but it was hard to enjoy because the restaurant itself is filthy! The walls and floor look like they haven't been cleaned in years. No care is taken in the restaurant, so it makes me uneasy about the food. The buffet is a good deal if you don't mind seeing leftover food on the ground and having poor service. Our bread didn't come until we finished our meal.
I HATE BP and this one is the worst. We had to come in after a hockey game with my son's team. I was hungry so against my better judgement we ordered the perogy pizza. GROSS. WHat a disgusting mess. Me and Eds knows how to make perogy pizza if you care to check BP. YOU. do NOT.
The beer was warm and all the pastas were very small for the price. Plus the waitresses barely talked to the boys, instead deferring to the parents. They're 15-17 years old and were surprisingly well behaved. All the parents were asking themselves why we come here. We won't again,
And as for the reviewer who said it was from Boston. No, it's from Edmonton. You'd think then that they'd know how to make perogy pizza. Sadly, not.
I came to Craft Beer Market after the Canucks game on Saturday night. The place was packed and lined up but because I was flying solo, they slid me into the bar immediately. The room is quite impressive; high ceilings, two mezzanines on either side (closed for now) and in the middle, a giant bar with tap after tap after tap. I think if I remember correctly there were over 130 taps when I was there. They have two brewmaster flights with 6 4oz glasses that change regularly. I will be coming back here just because their ridiculous beer selection; you could come here twice a week for years and still never try all their beers when you consider seasonals and changing taps.
The service was really good and their knowledge of beer was outstanding. My only gripe was that my burger was almost inedible because the patty was so overseasoned and salty. The fries were really good, however. Hopefully they fix their food because this place could be really stellar. Overall though, I will definitely return to Craft just for the ambiance and beer selection alone.
My wifey and I ordered two 'personal pizzas". One gluten free and the other - tuscany. The tuscany pizza was terrible. The green peppers and onions were huge, not chopped or diced. Very little of either. Ridiculous price for a personal pizza - almost $15.
The gluten free pizza was a little better, but certainly NOT WORTH the almost $15.
2nd time we have eaten here and the 2nd time we have been extremely disappointed. Prices are way higher then others in the area and the food is so poor.
never eat here again
We have been going to La Baia for many, many years and have always been extremely pleased with both the food and the service. There are very few places anymore that provide such outstanding service without being intrusive and annoying. The servers here are more professional than anywhere else in the area. The food is always fresh, well prepared and excellent. The portions are very reasonable without being foolish. The pasta dishes are always delicious and the veal dishes are fantastic as well. Whenever we want to go somewhere a bit special, we always pick La Baia. The only constructive criticism I can provide is that the décor of the restaurant is extremely dated and in need of a make-over. Having said that, the restaurant is clean and well maintained. La Baia is a great place to go when you want to be assured of a great experience.
Not much to say other than it was fun and the food was great. I've wanted to go for a while, and I've tried a few Japanese steak house style restaurants. This place was really upbeat and fun and the service was fast paced and they didn't make any mistakes. The food was delicious. My only complaint was that I wanted to try more. I guess I'll just have to go back and order from the other half of the menu. This time however, I'm going in a larger group so I can steal some off of their plates. : )
And yes, I like my steak raw and no they didn't over cook it. It was pink and delicious.
Brookswood in South Langley has a few good pizza places to choose from. I suppose that's why it took me 5 years to discover Glenwood Pizza. Now that I have I won't go anywhere else. Their sauce is delicious and toppings are all fresh. I order thin crust and extra cooked for a crispy bottom. It is perfect every time.
I hesitated in going to this restaurant for some time, because during its early days, I heard from friends that its food quality was not as good as that of its sister restaurant in Vancouver. However, these days, it is offering a special promotional set menu with snow crab that is very attractive, so I and my family took the plunge.
It was a very pleasant surprise. Not only was the set menu incredible value for money (the entire menu cost less than what just the snow crab might cost elsewhere), but every dish was delicious and perfectly cooked. Service was top-notch, as the waiter kept changing our plates every now and then to clear them of bones and crab shells.
Another outstanding feature of the restaurant is that seating is non-congested (unlike most other Chinese restaurants), and, combined with its high ceiling, the noise level is many decibels lower than at a typical Chinese restaurant. It makes for a very pleasant dining experience.
