Bella Pizza for the Office Christmas Party
By keith R. of Port Moody BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 11:18pm [Delivery]

Christmas party.This year I decided to order pizza for the office Christmas party. After looking at some mix review from Bella Pizza in Coquitlam. I placed a few hundred dollars worth of pizza with Bella Pizza to be delivered for lunch.For me it was the first time ordering Bella Pizza but some of the stuff had this pizza before.Delivery was on time as requested. Food was hot and smells delicious. The pizzas are quit thick with lots of toppings. These guys really put a good amount of toppings on pizzas. I believe this is the real pizza for the money I paid. The stuff also enjoyed the pizzas too. I think I will order from Bella Pizza for the office more often

Disappointed

Maybe it was an off night but was disappointed with the service and our meals. The chicken souvakli was dry and potatoes over done. We had to ask for tzatziki for our meals. Our salads came on separate plates before our meals along with cold pita bread and tzatziki. Our water glasses were always full and the decor was nice, but still won't be back any time soon.

Disappointed with horrible service
By Kensie of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, December 2, 2012 - 8:28pm [Dine in]

Came with my family if 10 for dinner.
- Seated for 15 min before I decided to get up to ask for menus
- got up again to find someone to order
- had to ask again for tea and water
- did not provide enough plates so sister had to use a serving plate
- did not tell us what food they brought us and just place on table
- we asked to keep the tea pot but they said no and told us that they will come back often to refill tea (which they did not)
- we wanted to order more food and went to find someone to take our order. We waited 15 min fur someone to come and we gave up

My husband and myself have been waitresses and waiters before and understand that it can get busy and short staffed but this was just horrible and beyond bad service. The food is good but for the expensive pricing I expected way more.

To note this is the second time we have had horrible service. We had decided to give this place a second chance hoping it was just that one time.

We will never return to this place again. For $260 no one was full and was too annoyed to wait any longer to order more food.

Ok Food but TERRIBLE SERVICE.

Submitted Sunday, December 2, 2012 - 9:40am [Dine in]

we had a staff function here and when the first few started trickling in it took 30 min to even get a glass of water and it was not busy. The tables with 2 people received more attention then our table of 20 that is here to spend a shit load more money. the food we ordered was their plated service 6 dishes in total. The food itself was pretty good and we were full right before the end hoping there wasn't anymore food coming out.

The waitress seemed like they need more training with customer relations because our table was neglected at most parts. If you want water you should call in ahead of time and order a pitcher for your table as it seems they import the water straight from Mount Seymour and have run to go get it. I wouldn't go back there id rather get pasta from Boston Pizza.

Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 6:58pm [Dine in]

My wife and I decided to give Sammys a try since it had been a few years. I'm not sure if it was just a bad night to go or its always that bad. We were seated quickly which was what we took as a good sign, on the way to the table we noticed it was pretty dead (two other tables). We also noticed how extremely uncomfortable the servers dress code made us feel, the tiny dresses were more than revealing and trashy. The drinks came to our table quickly but it went downhill from there. The music was comparable to that of a rave party and made us feel like club kids. It was in the irritating, loud and if we hadn't already ordered we would have left. We noticed they had also renovated and changed the menu and my wife and i agreed they seemed like they were attempting to be like Joeys in burnaby. Despite my food being quite tasty my wife's food was bland and it took forever for us to get it. The service was extremely slow and my wife's drink had not been refilled nor had mine. It was quite dead in there and there was absolutely no excuse for the poor service. After about 30 minutes of waiting I had to stand to wave down my waitress andaskills for a bill. No tip was given. We will absolutely not be returning. If I want an expensive meal I'll get it at Joe's where my server will be attentive and my food guaranteed to taste good.

Never Again
By Tonny of Burnaby (2 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, November 28, 2012 - 4:40pm [Dine in]

We have been going for years to Golden Boot. But the last straw has been laid and never again will me and my family and friends go there. The service is HORRID! The food is good but not good enough to endure the worst service I have come across. They have this little troll that is so arrogant and is obviously a family friend that they were forced to hire. She is rude and will ignore you or slam down the food unless you are a table she likes. So many times we are forced to stand at the door while the kitchen guys (including the owner) just stare and don't even acknowledge you. Then the waitresses make you wish you were sorry you came. We get shouted at, "YOU GOT RESERVATIONS?!" This place used to be crazy busy and they would be needed but not anymore. I wish he could see that if he got good service in the place would return to its previous splendor. Why would I pay to be at a place where they just don't care if I am there or not. Your loss Golden Boot!

I have eaten here five times; both solo, and with my son. I therefore can say I have basis for a balanced review.

The food has always been way above average - the last visit the calamari was truly excellent - very tender and the breading cooked to perfection.

The serving staff have consistently been friendly and attentive, without leaving me feeling they were intrusive. I saw them deal with a difficult situation at another table with aplomb.

Value: in this case you get the quality of food, service, and surroundings that you pay for, and incidentally they also give good portion sizes.

The decor is fresh and upmarket, and ambiance is pleasantly relaxing.

Multiple visits - every time a winner.

The Only Thing I Missed About Ontario And It Followed Me Here!!!
By LadyQ of Coquitlam (12 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, November 26, 2012 - 12:43pm [Dine in]

I used to be a student in Ontario years ago and a friend suggested that we go to Cora's for breakfast. I had never heard of the place but I figured why not. And I discovered the greatest breakfast eatery ever.When I moved back to BC I made sure to go there one last time and I was a little sad that I'd never have an April 89 crepe again. And thus began numerous kitchen attempts to recreate them myself. (Didn't work. I wound up substituting liquors for water and made "boozy" crepes instead lol.)
A few months ago my husband and I were in Coquitlam and I saw the cheery yellow sun sign and insisted that we go for breakfast there.
Ok so the decor is a bit cheesy and it's noisy. But the food is worth it! People have been complaining about the prices; they are standard and are actually a great deal when you look at the mountains of fresh fruit that you're served here. Nearly every dish comes with a variety of fresh fruit (no canned fruit cocktail or wedge of old melon here) and anyone who has worked in the food industry will tell you that it's an excellent deal.
The dishes themselves are great. We usually opt for one savory item and one sweet so that we don't have to choose lol.
Really if you want a cheap breakfast then there's always IHOP or McDonalds. But if you're looking for something that is fairly healthy and of good quality then this is a very good choice.

I used to go here for AYCE sushi and it was good but it's gotten progressively worse and I'll never go here again. My husband and I went here for the absolutel last time a few months back and now we tease each other about wanting to go here again (NEVER!).
We had noticed that one server in particular was just plain rude. He's a tall Asian guy with redish hair and barely speaks and does not make eye contact with people. He slams tea onto the tables hard enough to splash and doesn't check to see if people want anything else etc. He seemed to always be there whenever we went and we always left a little annoyed at his lack of basic good manners.
Anyhow the last time we were there we noticed that some of our food tasted a little different but we thought nothing of it. Within an hour of leaving we were both violently ill and wound up missing a few days of work with food poisoning.

This place has opened about 2 month now and I was there when it first opened and again couple days ago. When it first opened the place was renovated really nicely but the food and service was a little slow as usually just opened restaurants are, but when I was back couple days ago there was a huge party seeming about over 40 people at one side and other spots were almost all full. Seenig the huge party made me want to have my birthday party here. Anyways the service has gone incredibly great and the food was pretty quick to come the price is fairly decent. I had the las vegas roll and the chicken terriyaki and it was all so~ good. I would definitely come back again and make this place my regular.

Nice to have brought my friend here today. Had an awesome roasted turkey sandwich. Turkey was Made fresh and roasted very well. My friend enjoyed her Vegetarian sandwich and home made soup.

The place just changed management and I find the new owners much better and not as money greedy as the previous one. They also seem genuinely caring and friendly!

Will definitely be back to try their other gourmet sandwiches.

Worst experience in Vancouver for years!!! Stole our hand-bag!!!
By drxcheng of Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, November 12, 2012 - 3:28pm [Dine in]

My wife and I went to Fulin Hotpot in Coquitlam. Because of the crappy food and service, and more importantly, the fraud ad outside the restaurant, we left without tip. But we also left the handbag. When I returned, the manager hid it and didn’t admit. I had witness and I called the cop. I didn’t cause any trouble but just waited for an hour. Just minutes before the cop came, the manager returned the bag and still blamed us for not tipping. The bottom line is, it is not a crime for us not tipping, it is not a crime for the manger not taking care of customers’ lost items, but it is definitely a crime for hiding and not returning it when I asked. Because she returned the bag and nothing lost, the cop wouldn’t charge her. But I feel it is my obligation to let the community know about this incident and boycott this restaurant.

Do not trust the owner. He is very dishonest and will try to take advantage of you. I regret ever having given this establishment my business.

The best thing offered are the cream puffs, if on the pricier side, but not enticing enough to overcome the complete lack of respect shown. Ambiance is typical sports bar/restaurant style.

You would be wise not to go.

I like the room and the service is always good but the food is just ok and, as with a lot of these similar themed places, overpriced. If the food is good then I don't mind the price b/c you are paying for the other amenities. I ordered the ahi tuni sandwich which is usually risky outside of a sushi grade restaurant. It was terrible. Fishy, smelly and costly. I love ahi and this was the worst ever. I only ate a bit and had a small stomach issue later. Sure it was just a mistake, and that can happen. I will, however, be more careful if and when I return.

Submitted Saturday, October 27, 2012 - 6:35am [Dine in]

Perhaps it was the Friday dinner hour or it was because we weren't ensconced away in a cozy little booth on the perimeter of the restaurant but we were hit on. Oh no my nightmare. Just a group of girls enjoying food, atmosphere and drinks and these guys approach us and start being sleazy acting cool. Some of us are single but we have more brains than be charmed by idiots that are probably oversized egos.

Back to my review. On to the menu. Prices are slightly inflated here for what it is, especially for some of their regular entrees, but overall it is pretty reasonable. Joey seems to have a salad lovers following and a friend had the Chicken Salad and really seemed to enjoy it. It looked pretty substantial but I'm not really a salad-for-an-entire-meal kind of girl.

As soon as I saw the Lobster and cheeese Sandwich, I started salivating. Oh yes please! I think there were Spring greens, cranberries, feta and a light dressing next to it (not 100% sure now). Good complement to the cheese. And oh what a cheese it was. Not cheap here though.

. I'll wipe the drool off my face now as I sit here recalling the savoury goodness of yesterday's dinner.

I've given this Joey a 4 stars... simply on the merit of this dinner (and the service was decent never mind the idiots). I can't speak for anything else on the menu but what I can say is that I will be returning for the variety and waitresses good service. In the near future.

it tastes like a slice of melted cheese with a slight crisp to it. The cheese is so good. A little salty with a gooey satisfaction. The sauce is sometimes sweet or tart with a tomatoey taste. The 2 together are awesome dude. The crust is best when it is slightly buttery and soft/fluffy. So it's basically like eating the hot equivalent of a bagel with cream cheese and tomato. it's awesome

I have been to many Greek Restaurant and every time, I order a Roast Lamb Dinner. And in the past, none of them are as tasty as Cacy's Roast Lamb Dinner. The flavor of the lamb is seasoned just right, while the potatoes have an excellent lemon flavor, and the texture of the rice, is perfect. Once you try this restaurant, I'm sure, you will say " WOW", this is my new restaurant now.

Disappointing lack of accomodation
By goddard of coquitlam (11 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, October 7, 2012 - 9:42pm [Dine in]

My son had surgery a few days before, and after home convalescence he just felt able to go out to eat. I decided as a treat for him, to use the 2 Groupon coupons that I had for this restaurant’s Prix fixe meal.

The fine print was: Limit 2 Groupons per table, Reservation required, Dine-in only.

I complied with the above conditions totally; making a 6.30pm reservation.

On arrival the restaurant was empty except for another pair of diners. My son was seated while I paid for parking. When I arrived at the table I was told the Prix fixe meal was off the menu: Thanksgiving meal menu was all there was, and I could not use my Groupon for that. I requested to talk to the manager, who would not budge from that position.

Groupons pre-state in the fine print if there are additional specific date or menu restrictions to the deal.

So a negative for the change of menu not providing the prix fixe meal without noting specific limitations in the Groupon

A negative for not allowing a direct substitution for the changed menu – a similarly price dining experience.

And a negative for just being general arses in the circumstances of my son's post surgery recovery.

Definitely not recommended.

They got my order wrong twice to date and it's always in their favour.
They seriously need someone to check the orders before handing it to the customers. The owner's wife is the only pleasant one to deal with. The rest of them are just so robotic.

The food is good but the service needs improving.

It's a new building and as such far more accommodating than the normal pho joint. Service was quick and pleasant. I had the spicey flank steak pho with a spring roll. Both were pretty good. Kind of the usual. Nothing outstanding. It came with the thick noodles which most may prefer as you would get a real feed. But they are just too heavy for my liking and lacked taste. I'll come again and design my own bowl.
