Horrible service

Submitted Sunday, April 22, 2012 - 1:32pm [Dine in]

I would never go back there. Food is ok not the best. But the service was horrible! I ordered and got my food it wasnt quick. Than we decided to order another roll, just one. We waited over 20mins and I asked if they even started it they said no! We were so shocked! They were not busy. And in that small store this one waiter was running everywhere and the kitchen lady came out and was talking so loud!!! If u want cheap average food and if ur ok with loud evironment and slow service sure go for it but if I were u I won't go. Waste of time.

Disappointment

We have eaten here often and always had consistently great food here but we recently had a bad experience when we ordered food to ake away. The halibut was rock hard. Irregular shape like it was frozen product and when we informed the manager he was disinterested & unapologetic which I found to be a great disappointment.

John B. Neighbourhood Pub, The1000 Austin Ave., Coquitlam
Not like I remember
By royalsam of burnaby (47 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, April 12, 2012 - 12:13pm [Dine in]

We used to go to the old John B across the street so many years ago. When they moved we really never got into frequenting the new digs except on occasion. I met some friends there for lunch one weekday and enjoyed the general atmosphere. The menu was expansive with every thing you could want. Perhaps this was the problem. The server seemed rushed and was non attentive. The food came fairly quickly. No one cared too much for any of it. It was ok but certainly nothing special and not cheap. The yam fries were easily the worst ever. That can happen though as they're hard to do right. All in all I may give it a try again as this could have been a one off but I won't hurry to do so.

Not too bad

Submitted Tuesday, April 3, 2012 - 1:31pm [Dine in]

Went to start using up a gift card, sat at the bar one recent afternoon. Interesting place, almost feels as if they decided to upgrade a dive of a place, got 1/2 way and ran out of money. Some apsects are quite attractive, some remind me of a bar from the 80's. Same with the clients a mix of old barfly regulars and pretty people.

The bargirl was very pleasant (and cute) and did a fine job looking after me. Had the wing special, and no disrespect the the previous reviewer, I thought they were just fine for 20 cents. C'mon, it's 20 cents! I DID find it weird it costs more to have them tossed in sauce as opposed the sauce on the side, and the Thai sauce I did have was not remotely Thai flavoured, but other then that they were fine.

$2.80 for a warm iced tea ... $1 for refills (not told that when I was offered a refill which drives me nuts).

I'd probably stop by again if I happened to be right there, but wouldnt make a special trip.

Never again
By MsAnnabelle of Port Coquitlam, B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, April 2, 2012 - 9:45am [Delivery]

My boyfriend and I have ordered delivery from this location twice. Both times one or both of us (depending on whether our orders were similar or not) were violently ill. The first time I contacted them to let them know and see if I could be reimbursed. They refused to reimburse me, which peeved me a little but is understandable, but when I passed on my concerns about the food quality/sanitation I was treated dismissively. We gave them one more chance months later and ordered again, and once again were violently ill. I can only assume they haven't improved their preparation, storage or sanitation practices. I will never be eating from this restaurant again.

Pearl Fever Tea House3025 Lougheed Highway, Unit 340, Coquitlam
Pearl Fever is the best BBT chain in the Lower Mainland
By theschuay86 of Vancouver (32 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, March 30, 2012 - 10:27am [Dine in]

By far the champion of Bubble Tea in the GVRD. The quality, price, service and atmosphere is all above par. You can find BBT places that beats Pearl Fever in one of these categories, but never overall.

Quality is consistent, they always are looking for ways to improve and love feedback. It is not the best there is in terms of quality, but for the price it is worth it.

Service is the best in Vancouver. I only found one place that has better service. Friendly and quick. It is hard to find a quicker and more efficient team. It reminds me of a downtown club bar team. That fast.

Value is great. Prices have gone up all over the place and these guys still are one of the lower priced places.

Ambiance is great, especially after the renovations. A cool place to chill if it isn't too busy. The Pearl Fever Product has a coolness to it. "Evolved Tea Experience". The motto I feel suits them.

The UBC Pearl Fever is better, but this place is not far behind.

I love this place.
They make HUGE cali rolls and when you order Nigiri, the fish piece is HUUUUGE!
I often leave that place stuffed after having one cali roll and two tuna NIGIRI.I find they have the biggest portions for the amount you pay but the sushi is also delicious!

Great food and a great price.

If you read my other review you now know my new favorite PHO place. The staff here is so much more welcoming and they dont care if Im alone or with a big group. I always go to my same table and they smile and bring me my Pho quickly.
They also dont skimp on the Basil or the Sprouts. My son commented that it is the cleanest PHO place we ever went to (he's only 7). The sauce containers are clean and they look as though they get refilled after every seating!
I ♥ this place.

Are you sitting alone??

Submitted Tuesday, March 27, 2012 - 10:03pm [Dine in]

First off, I want to say that I used to go here during my 12 hour shifts at the hospital as they were quick to give you your food and I only had an hour. The last few times they seemed a little OFF PUT that I came by myself and would want a table alone.
The last time I was there they stuck some guy with me (I am a female) because they were busy and left the larger tables for larger groups even though they had no larger groups at that time. I thought this was weird and never made a fuss. I ate my soup and left.
Also:
I was the only white gal in the place and I noticed that they didnt give me any basil or chilis and only about 20 sprouts. The rest of the customers got heaping plates of basil. I ♥ Basil too!
My facebook status that day said "While gal needs basil"
I found a new place for Pho even close to the hospital where they are happy to seat me alone and dont put strangers at my table.

WE love to come here as a family. My husband loves the fact there is lots of MEAT to choose from. My son loves the kids menu ribs. He usually doesnt get a kids menu as it is generally too small for his appetite, but the ribs and a side of mashed potatoes and gravy and he is all good. He loves the ice creams afterwards too. The fun part is writing on the tablecloth (paper) and playing tic-tac-toe.

Nagano Japanese Restaurant2918 Glen Dr, Coquitlam
Great local sushi joint
By Rikko of Coquitlam (5 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, March 27, 2012 - 11:54am [Dine in]

I've been going to Nagano regularly for about 3 years and have always been happy with their food. The sushi is well made from quality ingredients and they have a great selection of rolls that aren't standard sushi menu fare.

They aren't cheap, though. You definitely notice your bill is higher than compared to a typical sushi dive, but the difference in food quality makes up for it.

Some of the senior staff are wonderful to deal with. The more junior servers are pleasant and efficient and leave nothing to complain about, but they don't "work the room" the same way.

I'd absolutely recommend them and anything on their menu.

Cumpari Gelato & Caffe535 North Road, Coquitlam
Must've made some lucky choices :)
By 360 of Vancouver (31 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, March 26, 2012 - 9:13am [Dine in]

We've passed by this place a few times but never went in because we thought it was closed. This time we passed by & saw a lot of people inside, so we went in, not having read any reviews. Thank goodness because the reviews may have deterred me. But it's just a scoop of gelato, so I probably would've gone in despite having read mostly terrible reviews here.

The gelatos I chose were really good. So i don't know which ones are bad. Mint Oreo was minty but also chocolately. I went with pistachio instead & it was creamy & fragrantful. But I was surprised the sample was melting as soon as the girl took it out. I think this means their restaurant is too hot or their ice cream is held at a really low temperature, lower than normal. We got our ice cream with our cake on the same plate. Where do you get that these days? Any flavor gelato you want with a large number of cake choices? I can only think of places like Cactus Club, which doesn't do either of the above! The plate was warm but I knew the gelato was melting like crazy. I think it comes from lower butter fat than ice cream. However, I don't think the gelato tasted like it had less fat than other gelatos. It was just delicious, like roasted pistachios blended with cream & frozen. We had a coconut cake. It had 3 layers of white sponge, which were light, more on the Asian side. I would've liked it even moister & fattening. But hey, it was delicious & it didn't stuff me! The layers of cream were sweetened & thicker than typical whipping cream. The coconut shreds on top tasted good; I don't care if they're real or not. They were good, but my bf thought it would've been even better with toasted coconut. The cake wasn't dry like bean brothers or sweet revenge, nor hard like sweet obsession or true confections, nor too light like Chinese bakeries & sweet e's, nor super rich like moxie's. You could eat the whole thing & it would be the perfect dessert. The prices are a bit higher, but then the slices of cake are bigger than average. In total, I would've preferred paying $10 including tax instead of $11 something. But that's only a dollar difference.

The ambiance is very nice. The tables are glass & metal while the chairs have firm cushions on them. They have both tall & low tables. The tables are really far from the counter & there's plenty of space to see what's in their display case. It reminds me of eiskafes in Austria. Modern & sophisticated, yet traditional with plenty of food that's both delicious to eat & look at.Their displays are beautiful & well-lit. I would've liked to have more information on the cakes available as many didn't have names & our server wasn't knowledgeable at all. And yes, a downside is you can only try 1 sample of gelato.

SERVICE SUCKS! My family happened to passby Coquitlam and decided to eat at Montanas but unfortunately we got a very POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE by MONTNAS STAFF.It took about 30 minutes before they can get our orders and we literally have to call the attention of the front desk to get us a waitress, it was not that busy and all i can see were waitresses fixing tables and nobody mind approaching our table to get our orders! One more thing they serve me the wrong food...really sucks, management should consider retraining these unprofessional staffing!

Not sure what happened, maybe just a one-off
By k-dawg73 of Burnaby (67 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, March 23, 2012 - 7:53pm [Take-out]

I ordered take out from Pizzatown today. Ordered a large meat lovers pizza, butter chicken w/rice and naan and veggie pakoras. I've ordrered pizza from her before about 3 months ago and it was good. For whatever reason, everything we ordered today was extremely salty, especially the pakoras. It was almost to the point that I couldn't eat it.

It cost $30.90 after tax for pick up, which would have been quite reasonable, had everything been edible. I ended up throwing out 1/2 of the pakoras, because they were too salty. The texture of the pakoras were great, crispy and light, but the taste of salt overrode the cilantro and other spices. Butter chicken was pretty good, lots of chicken, sauce was tasty, but again, too much salt.

LIke the title says, not sure what happened. I will give them the benefit of the doubt and likely order from there one more time. But if the food is again salty, that next time will definitely be the last time.

A group of us ate here on a saturday night. The place inside is beautiful, clean and the service is great.
For an appetizer I ordered the Saganaki (cheese dish) - excellent.
For my entree I ordered the Arni Psito (lamb shoulder) - Probably the best I've ever had at a greek restaurant.
The prices are very good here as well.
I will for sure be returning with my wife to eat that lamb again, it was that memorable.

I haven't been to Ikea for a while and I have to say I was shocked to see how poorly the cafeteria is run.
The food was fine and a good value, it was the uncleanliness I was not happy about. There used to be areas with racks to place used dishes, but now there are only a few racks against a wall, they were all full and even the counters were covered with used trays and dishes. This was awful, there was no place to put the trays, we had to just pile them onto other ones. I also didn't like that the beverage areas were not kept clean. There was spilled coffee, pop and milk all over, some was dried on so obviously it hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. The dispensers were dirty and most were empty.
This is disgraceful, it used to be so clean and well kept.

I went for the 20 cent wings thinking they would be a deal similar to the 20 cent wings at The Point Pub in Port Moody. I was disappointed. Two of us went in, both must order a drink if eating wings, wings are small and over cooked, the refill on my $3 coke actually costs more money!!, the sauce is served on the side. We order 40 wings plus a veggie plate, at the end I was still hungry. At The Point Pub we order 3 dozen plus a salad, we can hardly finish it.

The salt and pepper wings came out with a small tub of, you guessed it, salt and pepper. Think about it, the wings are dry so how would the salt and pepper stick to them? Come on, could you try just a little harder?? There's a salt and pepper shaker on the table, what's the difference? At The Point the salt and pepper is part of the coating on the wing. Brilliant!!

Don't go here for the wings.

Saturday game night with family.. Husband ordered Canadian but they did not say that Bud was only four bucks. Boo. Wine prices average - a rip off like most places. $6.49 for cheap red at 6 oz.

Sat night pizza was large for the price of a medium but they charge the higher price if you order a half and half Kid meals were very small for close to seven bucks. The baja salad was more like a boohoo salad. VERY bland. I had to pick out all the olives and it had no peppers corn or onions it in it was desribed on the menu. It was lettuce, GROSS olives, a little cheese, a few tortilla strips with jarred salsa for $12.99 not good value. Came with teeny piece of garlic bread. Child had chocolate pizza for dessert.. should have asked. It wa a tiny milk chocolate coin the size of a tooney - not at all what was expected. WOuld never go again without a gift card.

'A Perfect Saturday Night Recluse'
By samnch of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, March 9, 2012 - 4:26am [Dine in]

While the idea of Irish Pubs fascinates many and entices a few, the seductively elaborate history of pubs can be traced back to the ancient Roman taverns. Some may argue over the destructive aspects of Pubs, but no one can deny that for many, these late-night getaway spots offer an escape from the dismal reality that exists around us.

My friends and I have a rugby game every Saturday which is followed by a two-hour period of bowling and then the most awaited and cherished moment of Saturdays – an elaborate dinner which mainly focuses on relishing an insane variety of carbohydrates. So last week, after the bowling spree we went to the Charlie Hamiltons Pub – a place renowned for its magnificent sporty aura.

When we entered the restaurant, the mouth-watering aromas of the pizza, the pasta and the steaks benumbed all of our senses except our sense of taste. And from the moment we selected the food items off the menu to the moment the food arrived, we never ceased salivating. During this interval however, (which seemed laboriously long) we slightly examined the surrounding environment. The out-door seating thrilled us since we had been desperately seeking a cool, airy atmosphere to cool down our bodies after the intensive game.

And finally the food arrived! Since all of us are carb-maniacs, each of us had a double serving of pasta and several pizzas. The cold drinks (which were refilled several times over) formed the perfect combination with the food. The best thing about the food at Charlie Hamiltons Pub is that it is served piping hot. Moreover, the pizza crust is perfectly flavoured and expertly cooked. The topping is equally gorgeous in terms of taste. The succulent tomato sauce along with the aromatic anchovies and jalapenos is nothing short of perfection. The cheese layer topping on the pizza forms piano-like layers when one tears a piece off the entire circle.
The pasta was a huge hit amongst all of us. The chef had taken great pains to ensure that the pasta remains neither undercooked nor overcooked. This freshly cooked pasta was enveloped in a flavorful sauce and the entire dish had a soft gooey touch to it. The subtle taste of garlic and onion also added an irresistibly magnificent aspect to the pasta dish. We left the restaurant feeling an overwhelming sense of happiness and the profuse satisfaction of a night well spent, so I’d give the restaurant five stars.
