Woody's on Brunette Pub935 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam
Chef's day off?
By Ireviewyou of Suburbs (8 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 8:24pm [Dine in]

After stopping in for a burger a few days ago, and giving Woody's a generally favourable review, I stopped by today for another as I was in the area. What a difference. After sitting down and having several waitresses walk by me, speaking to and looking after tables right next to me, FINALLY someone asks if I've been helped.

Ordered the Triple Cheese, Mushroom, Chipotle Burger and this time it was terrible. Different buns than last time, dry and stale so that it broke apart in my hands. Cheese not melted, not a hint of chipotle, Fries were cold and tasteless, burger patty was dry and overcooked.

No quality check from the waitress until well after I was done.

A brutal effort. What a difference a few days makes.

Average pub

Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 9:12am [Dine in]

Food 7/10 Had a basic cheeseburger with fries. It was as simple as you can get in a burger,, bought in patty, bought in fries, plain bun but prepared perfectly for what it was. Hot, juicy, cheese melted, fries hot. Not gourmet but good for what it was

Service 7/10 Attentive staff on a busy night, although a couple moved next to me because they were having difficulty flagging down anyone where they were previously seated. My only issue is that after ordering and waiting a reasonable 10 minutes, I was told that the food would be a little longer because they had a fundraiser in the back room and were backed up in the kitchen. Fair enough, I appreciate the heads up ... HOWEVER, someone seated near me whom was obviously a regular because his girlfriend showed up and was given a beer without having to order because they knew what she drank, ordered well after me and got his food well before me. Clearly, put his order above mine, not impressed

Value 8/10 Burger and fries about $10, can't complain

Ambiance 7/10 Typical busy pub, the commotion coming from the fundraiser in the back was mildly annoying

Awful
By MISS K of Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, April 28, 2012 - 11:17pm [Delivery]

Tonight I had a craving for wonton soup so, I decided to call up Hon's and also get a few other things with delivery. I remembered that I had ordered from them once before and the food seemed decent. The person taking the order could not decipher a 0 from a 4 (slight language barrier, but no big deal) in our phone number and after many attempts to clarify, we gave up thinking that at least they had our apartment number correct. After an hour or so, we called to inquire about our food.. a woman apologized and said they had tried to reach us - they had the buzzer number wrong as well. When the food finally arrived, to my dismay the sauteed beans in garlic were obviously canned. $10 FOR CANNED BEANS! I was so upset, because they are usually my favourite and after waiting so long thinking about them, it was very disappointing to receive gelatinous garbage. The war wonton soup we got had a strange aftertaste and very few wontons. I am actually pretty mad about wasting my money.

Would NOT Recommend!!
By RogerRabbit24 of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, April 25, 2012 - 2:49pm [Dine in]

Had to pick up my friend in Coquitlam and thought we drop by this place to eat, it looked alright from the outside and the reviews seems alright, can't be that bad right? WRONG!

The food was overly salty, it seemed like I was eating plain salt, the food was luke-warm and even cold. I talked to the person working there and they said it was "hot" when I took it out and just left. We took a few bites of everything and just got the bill, over half of the food was still on the plate and they didn't even ask why or make it up to us. Paid the bill and head to the washroom, the entire restaurant was dirty and what made me lose it was seeing bugs crawling around the restaurant as I was heading to the washroom. YUCK!

Not recommending anyone this place, I'd tell them to drive to Pho Hoa in Coquitlam center instead of eating at this SH*TTY place!

Golden Boot, The1028 Ridgeway Ave, Coquitlam
Great place for Pizza in Coquitlam
By BigAnthony of North Burnaby (106 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, April 25, 2012 - 11:25am [Dine in]

I was told about this place by a friend so I came a few times to try it out.
1st time.. stopped in for lunch. Cool little place, they have some nice pasta options. It was not busy there and service was good. I ordered one of their tortellini dishes. It was good but nothing spectacular. I needed to come back and order something else to be sure..
2nd time.. I came with my wife for dinner. We each ordered a pizza. I had the Caprese - $15 & she had the Maranello - $15. Both pizzas were awesome! Thin crust and delicious. Our waitress got busy during dinner and service became slow. She did her best though, it wasn't her fault. For dessert we shared a tiramisu - $7 and it was also yummy.
Overall this is a cool little place, has a casual relaxed feel inside. I will be back next time I am in the mood for a good pizza and I will be telling my friends about it.
My rating is based on both meals so if I were to only have eaten the pizza here I would have rated the food a 4 instead of 3.

Church's Chicken555 North Road, #5, Coquitlam
crunchy batter but not seasoned enough
By pete66 of coquitlam (56 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 23, 2012 - 8:33pm [Take-out]

We had a 2 piece chicken dinner on the weekend (drumstick & thigh). Took it home and the thighs were a decent size, it was still hot, fairly juicy with a thick crispy crunchy batter, the way we like it. We didn't want spicey, just regular but found the chicken skin was under seasoned say compared to KFC. The chicken pieces are larger than KFC's, although I've found the KFC at the Metrotown location had good size thighs. The fries on the other hand were pale, limp but we ate them all anyway. They could have used a few more minutes of cooking. If they put a bit more spices to the batter, it would make such a huge difference.

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 - 1:13pm [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
By mapleridgefoodie of Maple Ridge (6 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, April 3, 2012 - 2:31pm [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 - 10:45am [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 - 11:27am [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.

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 - 12:54pm [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 - 10:13am [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!
