Steaks done wrong Again
By azuravaleo of Surrey ,B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, August 31, 2014 - 9:41pm [Dine in]

early birthday dinner, hostess offers first available lounge table to the couple who comes in after me. i waited for them to accept it, so i could make my exit, but they turned it down.

i ordered a steak medium rare, but i should've just told her to surprise me, as it came back as a tough puck.
this was the second time here, and the cook's second mistake on the order. oh yeah, the first time i came in, they served me crab shell in the crab cakes. almost broke a tooth. the waitress offered up the comment from the observant cook that, 'this happens sometimes.' maybe they should've fired that cook, or put a disclaimer next to the crab cakes on the menu. also a rare steak on a medium rare order.

i only commit to spending so much money, when i expect to get excellent food and excellent service. silly me.

thank-you to the cook, who has convinced me to stop wasting my money at the keg franchise.

NO THANKS!

Needs a new manager
By brenda22 of New Westminster BC (2 Reviews)

Unfortunately this restaurant needs a lot of work. Value is very poor, food is mediocre and portion size is small for amount charged. The manager is lazy and certainly isn't welcoming unless you are consuming alcohol. Service is extremely slow you can wait up to 20 minutes for someone to acknowledge you are at a table.

Disappointing

We were excited when a new western cuisine restaurant first opened approx three years ago. We have been there numerous times since they opened and food has been average no matter what day of the week. Service is better during Monday through Friday. Sunday is the worst day to go to this restaurant as this is their busiest day and they find it difficult to deal with high volume of customers.On Sundays they bring in a family member an older gentleman to help with customers and he is rude and lazy. The restaurant is currently for sale hopefully the new owners will keep it western cuisine.

Buffet not so great, ok ok not good ,ok ok mediocre
By mcjardine of whiterock (29 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, August 30, 2014 - 9:04am [Dine in]

What a disappointment. Arrived at 11.40 AM for their buffet and was told the Buffet opens at 12. Their sign states 11:30. Ok came back at 12:10 and found a small buffet 12 items in the hot section. Goat curry is always my favourite BUT not this time. Meat was old and very tough. It appears as if they cook the meat days ahead of time and just add it to a sauce. Meat not even stirred in as it was sitting of top of sauce ,all dried looking. Butter Chicken dish same , very small pieces and again prepared much earlier and tasted strange.

When I told our waitress she could not less. Told our cashier ,again my comments went unanswered.

The sauces were very good ,premises very clean. This restaurant is located in a small strip mall in S Surrey and the owners must serve a much better buffet. I can not see this place lasting. Only two other people eating there on a Friday lunch time.Aug ,2014

Al Porto Ristorante321 Water Street, Vancouver
Pleasantly Surprised
By KeyWester of West End, Vancouver (31 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, August 29, 2014 - 1:54pm [Dine in]

Did lunch on a Groupon. We really weren't expecting much based upon some of the previous reviews and the location, being situated in touristy Gastown. The antipasto for two was excellent and included quality prosciutto, three large prawns, provolone, salami, tomatoes, arugula, and some pickled veggies. Mains consisted of a good sized Atlantic lobster (which the kitchen had kindly split in half and cracked open the claws) with a side of al dente pasta which was substituted for risotto by request at no additional cost, and a delicious grilled scallop and prawn combo. Both dishes were accompanied by perfectly cooked green beans, squash and beets. Service was extremely pleasant and professional. Only complaint was that the chocolate ganache tort for dessert was rather tasteless. Will definitely be back.

Ok, I may not work 40 hours a week, but seriously.....

I mean this guy doesn't want to give a lousy tip to the poor delivery driver, who probably has to put up with a bunch of crap from many patron.....Fine, don't tip.....It's not exactly mandatory, but obviously you are a stupid loser and made a big stink to the delivery driver about not leaving him a tip (I would be embarrassed if I were making the one making a big stink about having to leave a tip to the delivery, and insulted if I were the delivery driver)

And the $3.50 delivery charge (Well Duh) how do you think the tip less delivery driver gets paid? and do you think the delivery car just magically appeared (WITH GAS) not to mention car insurance. KFC does that too, and I am sure there are other places who also do it. Why do you think you get 10% off for pick up orders you moron? Delivering your stupid pizza to your house involves costs that the restaurant pays (Idiot)

And I can't believe News 1130 was too stupid to even air your lame story.....They must have had no better news to report (Must have been an extremely slow day for them) but after airing that crap, I wouldn't be surprised if they lost many viewers or listeners.

I am surprised your wife isn't divorcing you after all that crap

Decent Food With Fair Price
By billhaasfoodcritic of West Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 11:48pm [Dine in]

New Japanese restaurant opened in Broadmoor by RBC bank. Don't be deceived by its new opening, it was quite busy when I came in during dinnertime with my brother. We were seated quickly and given menus to look at. The menu was intriguing and the ambiance was enticing. Most of their decor were of old looking, but it was of Japanese tradition. We ordered the salmon and tuna nigiri and the bc roll. When the food arrived, I was surprised to see the salmon nigiri were long-cuts of fresh pink salmon and the tuna had a lively colour, unlike most cheaper Japanese restaurants. The sushi rice used to make both the rolls and the nigiri were somewhat bland though, I guess that's what happens when MSG is not used in food. However, I would much rather prefer a meal without MSG than with it. After finishing our meals, we were full and content and the bill totaled to $30.24 with its current 20% discount. Most of my trips out to sushi restaurants would amount to about 50-60 dollars a person. Gami sushi is definitely worth a try if you're looking for decent food for a cheap price.

Great experience at this brand new joint! Menu has enticing items like coconut crusted tuna, shrimp gyoza, spicy pork gyoza, lobster motoyaki, and a great selection of specialty rolls. The highlight of the night was the okonomiyaki (Japanese savory pancake)- filled with shrimp, mussels, and tender squid. Came to table cooked in a sizzling cast iron plate. Tempura was fresh and light. The accompanying sauce was so much better than the usual bland stuff. Decor is lovely. Service was extremely friendly, although I hope more attention to detail will be paid once they've been open longer. This will definitely become a neighbourhood favourite

I would recommend this bar to anyone, the food and service are awesome and the live entertainment is fantastic. Great value for the money, and football on the big screen with loads of yummy chicken wings and imported beer is the most fun. Live music and a fun atmosphere make Sawbucks my favorite bar when I am in the area.

We've been here several times....and no lie "It's Very Good."
Go figure, we live on the North Shore but it's certainly worth the drive.
Sure there are other great Indian establishments and we've tried several but this one is a jewel.
We stumbled on it a few years ago and love eating here.
Not only is the food great but they genuinely seem happy to see us.
With all the new high-rises being built in the area, not sure how long it'll be before these folks have to relocate.

Our office recently hosted a corporate event for 200+ and I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism and efficiency shown by everyone at Butler, starting from the initial planning stages through various iterations of the menu and adjustments of supplies - our planner was endlessly patient and quick to accommodate every step as our needs evolved.

On the night of the event, the set-up of the bars and serving tables was accomplished attractively and tastefully; the service staff were attentive without being oppressive; platters were replenished speedily and always looked appetizing; staff circulated constantly to keep stock full and to clear away leavings. Everything ran smoothly and easily, even when our elevator stopped working and the servers had to resort to using stairs to go between floors! Make your event easier to plan by calling Butler.

This is just a hole in the wall at the corner of Victoria and 36th, but that doesn't affect the food. I was very pleased with my meal, everything was fast and fresh and very tasty. I might ask for the recipe for the salsa. I have certainly had some disappointing Mexican food experiences in Vancouver at much higher prices. I had good authentic food here at a very good price.

Submitted Sunday, August 24, 2014 - 6:28pm [Take-out]

Not very good quality. Small portions. Chicken (all thigh) had too much gristle bits, as did every bite of beef. Noodles seemed fresh, but not to our liking. Szechuan and Kung Pao had good sauce flavour, but everything else was... Meh. Sweet & sour chicken was all soggy breaded thigh (not crispy with sauce, as per the menu)...probably 1/4 of each bite was meat. Not worth a 2nd chance... Especially as they seemed over priced to start.

Takeout Service terrible - food not worth the wait
By Blueridge-Foodie of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, August 23, 2014 - 6:27pm [Take-out]

One star solely due to slow/poor service.
My kids have had spotty service issues before for eat-in but thought we would try them for take-out. We ordered four rolls and one sashimi dish and were told it would be ready in 20 minutes. I arrived on time for pickup and the restaurant was barely quarter full. Paid for the order and was told they were waiting for one roll. Sat and waited another twenty five minutes during which time no new patrons entered and two tables paid and left - of the other patrons, only saw one order delivered to a table and one phone call that appeared to be a takeout/delivery order.
No staff came and updated me on status until after twenty minutes one server asked if I was waiting for something. I informed her that my order was supposed to be ready twenty minutes earlier - she went to the back had a discussion with someone and within a few minutes my order finally was brought to me. A mature gentleman (likely the owner by his bearing) had been wandering around the restaurant during my wait and passed me several times without inquiring into my wait.
Based on the minimal volume during my visit, I would hate to see how they handled any real volume of business. If you are in any hurry or have a timeline don't order from here. I could have spent less than twenty five minutes driving to the Lonsdale area for similar food and faster service. I will not be ordering from here again.

Terrible Bar Service
By DWilkinson of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, August 23, 2014 - 4:20pm [Dine in]

I went in and sat at the bar, then waited ten minutes or more to be served because the (sloppily dressed) bartender had his head buried in a newspaper. Finished my first (flat) beer and then waited yet another ten minutes before I called out asking for another beer (which was an inconvenience to the bartender judging by his attitude). The place was quiet, but that's no excuse for being so inattentive and rude!

The food is Terrible the worst fish tacos I've ever had an inch of greedy fried fat with no fish in one and a sliver of an anchovies inside the other blob of fried fat. Add the 2.10 for a can of pop and the tourist trap is set. The owner must see this as a cash cow rather than providing good food. Hiring 6 young ladies could be the other motive eating his or her profits. Bottom line food terrible pack a lunch. Even the chicken tenders weren't good and over fried. I recommend less cash cow and more chef training

Well I'm never going back there TERRIBLE SERVICE! INCOMPETENT WAITRESS!(who was absent for most of our meal) , FOOD was OK BUT NOT WORTH WAITING OVER AN HOUR FOR !
It wasn't as bad at first but as time went on the service went downhill . The waitress messed up our order and missed 2 items we asked for. Entree was burnt and over salted. I was never asked if I wanted another glass of wine. The manager was not in charge, he had no control over his staff. This was the worst way to kick start a weekend! I give it a F for failure.

We are originally from Montreal and every where you look there are delicious lebanese restaurants in every city.

This restaurant is by far the best one hands down that we have tried since moving to BC. The shawarma is amazing, the garlic sauce is delish... the falafels are fresh. Couldn't be happier.

We live in Delta and the drive is totally worth it.

It also helps that both the owners, Imran and Jad are very friendly and know how to make killer food.

Trust me it is totally worth a try! We can't get enough!
