Pleasantly surprised

We were going to go to the Lamplighter restaurant but they were closed for the evening.

Dinner at eighteen 27 turned out to be a pleasant surprise. We were greeted in a very friendly manner by the hostess and escorted to a nice window seat. Our waiter was also great. He presented the menus and wine list and asked if we would like a drink. We asked for water while we perused the wine list and drink menu. We both decided to have wine by the glass. They have a very extensive martini menu and they looked awesome.

We decided not to have any appetizer or tapas as we thought that maybe we would save room for dessert. The tapas seemed to be very generous portions. My husband had the Chili Spareribs. They were so tender and flavourful. I opted for the peppercorn filet. It was cooked perfectly and very flavourful. The ribs were $26.00 and my filet was $29.00. Fair value. Dinner was served with a wonderful foccacia bread and carmelized butter. The bread was nice and warm. For dessert we shared the chocolate lava cake with orange sorbet. The food was really good.

They had a large party that was very loud the evening that we were there but if they didn't have a large group it would be fine as the tables are nicely spaced so you intruding on the next tables conversation. As others have mentioned the ambiance is terrific. The piano player really added to the ambiance. The chairs are very comfortable.

It was a terrific evening and we would definitely return.

Great Place for Tapas and Martinis

We've been meaning to try Eighteen27 for a while now, as we'd heard good things from friends. We finally decided to give it a try on Saturday night for my Mom's birthday. Our party of six was quickly seated (we tried to make reservations but were informed they do not accept them) at a nice table near the bar. Both the hostess and our server were very friendly and helpful. Our server was very attentive throughout the evening. We opted to order and share tapas / appies instead of main courses. The Wild Mushroom Risotto Balls were fantastic, a nice crispy coating, great cheesey filling, finished with tomato sauce and a sweet balsamic glaze, delicious. We also enjoyed the Candied Pecan Baked Brie. The Spinach and Artichoke dip was good, the menu described the dish as being served in a sourdough bread bowl, ours came in a regular bowl and was served with pita bread, perhaps they ran out, not sure? Chicken skewers were okay, tasty, but they could have been warmer. We enjoyed the three cheese fondue. The accompniments were good, grilled bread, roasted red peppers, shrimp and sausage. We all agreed some green apple would have been a great addition! Martinis were all great, our favorites were the Lonely Hippie and the Pink Grapefruit Mojito. The champagne cocktails were also quite tasty. It would have been nice to have seen some garnishes included with our drinks, as even some beverages that included garnish descriptions on the menu were missing them, again maybe they were out?! Ambiance at Eighteen27 is really quite nice, lovely chandeliers and unique artwork, like being downtown without having to be all the way downtown. Piano music was great, really added to the evening. We sorta felt like the T.V. playing sports didn't really fit in. Overall, we enjoyed the restaurant and will definitely be back for more great martinis and perhaps to try the main courses!

First Time

We were invited out for an anniversary dinner to this spot on the strip in Fort Langley.

As it was Tuesday night, it was their two can dine for $29.95 evening. This features a 4 course tapas meal for two. I enquired if the portion sizes were smaller than their regular meal and was advised they were not. You basically select one of a number of tapas in each of the four categories, ie: appy, entree etc.

The presentation was very good, with two portions of each tapas served on the one plate, ie: for crab cakes, each diner receives one. There was a very nice selection of offerings, incl dessert. We were well satisfied food wise.

The caveat on the menu was to receive the special, two beverages must be ordered. It did not specify these need be alcoholic. There was also live entertainment. Wednesday's is 2 for 1 tapas.

Overall, a very pleasant evening, with a tab of about $50 for two including the two cocktails and gratuity.

first time there
By nicolemenard of surrey (3 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, March 20, 2011 - 7:08pm [Dine in]

After walking around fort langley on a sunday afternoon, my husband and I decided to eat lunch here.
We walked right in with no lineup and seated immediately.That was about the fastest part of the lunch.
Waited for about 10 min, then someone approached letting us know that our server would be there shortly.
Another 5 min and we ordered our meal, a pop and a tea. 10 minutes later our drinks came but without
cream or sugar and my cup was dirty, had to ask for this to be taken care of. The meal came at a perfect amount of wait time and was very good. We were left alone to eat and not asked for refills at all, barely saw our server.
The ambiance of the place is incredible, from the lighting, decorations, background music, and even the
restrooms where all tied in with an elegant theme. The sports on tv above the bar was the only thing that was a bit out of place. But not really a big deal, could not hear it anyway.
The bill was your typical price for a lunch, very reasonable. We will be back to try some of the other days
that they have specials on and to give the service another try because to be honest after we sat down, there
was quite a lineup at the door for a large party that they were not prepared for.

Piano Player was Great but Service was Beyond Poor
By LaurenP13 of White Rock (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, March 8, 2011 - 2:49pm [Dine in]

I attended this restaurant on a Saturday night with 13 other people to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday. The service that our waitress provided was beyond poor. I actually thought we may be on candid camera because it was so bad. The server either forgot or mixed up almost every item ordered even though she gave everyone at our table a number to use when ordering. At one point I ordered four Coors Light for four of the people at my table. The waitress returned with two and said "unless it's an emergency the other two will be cold in about ten minutes". Two of the people decided to change their drink order so that they did not have to wait. The first drink took over 15 minutes to come after the waitress had to double check the order and the other drink which was a bottle of beer arrived 20 minutes later after reminding the waitress twice. The server argued with one of my friends over what they had ordered. Overall the food was okay but the service was horrible. The piano player was great. We had planned to spend the entire night there but decided to leave before 9:00 because of the poor service.

a cute little spot in the heart of Fort Langley

We heard about this great little martini bar called Eighteen27 from some friends and decided to give it a try.

The ambience is great. It has a nice look to it, and on weekends they have a pianist. They have a good selection of martini's and although we didn't manage to try all of them, were quite pleased with the ones we did try. Their signature martini, the Eighteen27, is a hit.

Service was not the greatest, but it could have been an off day. It took forever to order drinks, and our server was acting strange (a little tipsy perhaps?) so we changed servers. We had ordered the olives with our drinks (which, the server said, would come out right away as there's no preparation) yet we received the oysters (which we ordered afterwards) before anything else.

Other than that, everything was good. The olives were a good compliment to the martini's. The candied hallibut pieces were tasty. The freshness of the oysters were questionable, and we've never had oysters with such heavy shells, but we did not get sick on it so it must have been fine.

We would definitely come back to try the rest of the drinks and appetizers.

Wouldn't go back

Submitted Tuesday, September 22, 2009 - 2:13pm [Dine in]

I went to this place on recomendation from a few friends as a decent place for a martini. The martini's are indeed good but beyond that there isn't much else to go back for. The server we had was not good at all, forgot items, took a while to serve us drinks, and was very very dry. The food was decent, we had the fondue, but it wasn't anything special. I get they are going for a unique atmosphere and for this I do give them some credit.

I cannot believe what we paid for what we ate. Went with 3 friends on Saturday night. We phoned ahead to try and get reservations and were told they don't take them. Not that we needed them either since when we arrived it was only 1/2 full. We could see why too after 5 minutes. That piano is LOUD! It's not a place for a quiet conversation. We ordered tapas salads for $9 and they were 1/4 cup of spinach, 3 small chunks of pear (I mean the size of your pinky nail small) and 2 even smaller pieces of stilton. Then the cheese fondue ($20) that was only 1/2 an inch deep in this very huge pot that was awkward to dip into. Accompaniment was hunks of bread...not very fresh...4 tiny shrimp and some chopped sausage. Then $7 for small pile of overdone yam fries. More $$ for a prawn dish and even more for a veggie burrito. After that, we didn't stay for dessert. The food was tasty but WAY WAY overpriced. I could have eaten better downtown, for less money.

I can’t get enough of this Piano Bar. Let's face it traveling downtown for the same atmosphere is a once in a blue moon experience. This is a perfect night out with the girls or a couple, for some wine, martinis, hmmm and such amazing appies, had to order the scallops twice in one night. These guys know what they are doing and are constantly looking to improve it. They've managed to capture a high, elegant, sophisticated atmosphere in the heart of Fort Langley. Nice and close for us who live in Walnut Grove. So, far me and the girls have had no service problems.

I have so far not seen or heard of any place even remotely similar outside of Vancouver. Let's face it, most of us definitely want to stay away from the bar scene. If you want to have a great dinner, awesome drinks outside of the city with a mood building environment, then 1827 is the place.

Cheese sauce, not Cheese Fondue
By Rickie of Fort Langley (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, August 14, 2009 - 7:49pm [Dine in]

Decided to treat ourselves to a visit to the 1827, having had mostly pleasurable experiences (2) in the past. In all three cases, service, value and ambiance maintained the same rating given today. Food previously, while not huge portions by todays standards, were adequate and extremely tasty. The other day however, we were disappointed in the 3 cheese fondue and the steps taken to correct it. The cheese was prepared as a cheese sauce, tasty, but suitable for pasta, not a fondue. For the price we paid, $22, I expect the "new" chef to know how to prepare it. As well, the amount of sauce given was half an inch in depth...kind of hard to dip, and scorching from the heat of the flame. The waitress agreed that the sauce did not appear right. She offered to have it made again, in the same way....no thanks. It was a white sauce with 3 cheeses in it....not a fondue sauce. We packaged it up, minus the sauce, and made an awesome fondue at home. Still tempted to come here, due to ambiance and location and beverages, but food is to be carefully ordered. Charged full price and no ammends made or offered.

After months of being prodded by friends of ours we finally went with them to Eighteen 27 in Fort Langley on Saturday night. We arrived just after 7:00 to a nearly packed house and were surprised as our friends were greeted by name from a gentleman we later discovered was one of the owners. The room is quite stylish and warm with impressive chandeliers, lantern sconces and modern embellishments throughout. We were seated in a large booth with plenty of room for the four of us {could probably hold 6 guests} which had its own lighting control, very helpful in reading the smallish print on the menus. Our server was attentive, helpful and very well informed; she even mentioned after we ordered our wine selection that we should come back in a few weeks to check out the new wine list. We ordered a wide range of tapas which were all fantastic however three of them really stood out. The first was the mixed greens salad; a nice size portion with lots of fresh fruit, a piece of warmed goat cheese coated in nuts and an obviously house made citrus dressing. Delicious. The next favourite was the beef wellington wrapped in filo pastry with mushrooms and roasted peppers inside served with mashed potatoes and a sort of sweet demi glace. This dish is a standard that our friends order every time they come in and I understand why. Very flavourful, cooked medium rare and again a good portion size. Lastly the pork tenderloin on squash strudel with a rich sauce that has brown sugar, pecans and cranberries but is not too sweet and really compliments the pork nicely. We ordered a few other tapas such as the cashew prawns and cannelloni, also enjoyable and enough to share with everyone getting to taste everything. For dessert we had a dark chocolate fondue and a round of tawny port, the perfect finish to our meal. I must also add that there was a pianist playing that night so the entertainment made for a very good value rating. My wife and I will be returning often and pretty soon the owners will probably remember our names too.

best food in langley so far
By sabrina38 of langley (4 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, February 27, 2008 - 12:34pm [Dine in]

if you like tapas and you love good food you will love 1827. no it is not pile what cheap pasta and cream sauce you can in a bowl type of restaurant. if you want cheap food and lots of it - dont come here - but if you want gourmet cuisine, in small normal human weight portions then come here. split 3 tapas and have a martini and you will be comfortably full, what you should be - not distended, undoing your pants....as most people seem to desire. I had the chicken pick up sticks? - the sauce was crazy good - the risotto balls - little orgamsic balls of pleasure - the hawaiian rubbed fish - the salad garnish was even to die for, if i could have licked the plate i would have. the martini choices is great. i had a lime one with dinner - perfect tartness to compliment richness of risotto balls, then for dessert had the pbj martini - was like having a peanut butter and jam sandwich for dessert. went with an old high school friend -just two good girlfriends laughing, drinking and sharing plates - had a phenomenol time and laughed when the piano player played "time after time" by cindy lauper - "our song" we laughed, needless to say the ambience is great for our purpose, to catch up and laugh and talk, but also you could see the romantic twos and the couples (3 to a big booth) filling the restaurant - they also were having a great time sharing the "sharing plates". Highly recommend for those wanting good food, good drinks and good time, dont recommend for those looking for a tv and a pound of chicken wings. great to start an evening as you dont feel full and bloated and sluggish after you leave, would be great before a movie or theatre, etc.

Eighteen27 ...Fort Langley is now in the 21st century
By jlo77 of Abbotsford (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 2:08pm [Dine in]

I am among a large group of locals who had been impatiently waiting for 1827 to open in Fort Langley, It is really the only place like it in the entire area, so it had some high expectations on it before it opened it's doors. A few girls from work & I went after work for a couple of martinis ( their self proclaimed specailty). I ordered their signature martini, the 1827, which was perfect & delicious...white wine, lychee, pear juice, vodka, and a little starfruit slice that made me smile. One friend asked the server if she could have one of the martinis, but as a cocktail over ice instead. She had to go ask the bartender, who called over from the bar to our table that maybe she should try a different martini. She really wanted her first choice, and they reluctantly made it as she asked( I am not sure why that was so hard). My second drink was on the server's recommendation, a lime martini ( Not the real name, I forget). As much as i loved my first drink, I hated this one. It tasted like vodka with artificial lime syrup. I couldn't drink the whole thing ( which is so not like me!) We ordered the Baked Brie, which came out after quite a wait. It had walnuts, cranberries, and some sweet caremelized sauce, with thin slices of french bread toast. The price was $8, and the portion was fine for an appetizer for one to two people, with only half a circle of brie cheese on the plate. I looked over the menu, and thought there were some interesting choices, all tapas style, as well as cheese & cholcolate fondue, however, No entrees to speak of. I couldn't bring MY boyfriend here....or He would have to eat first!
The live piano was a nice mood setter, and the varied seating makes for different experiences each visit, from group tables, to window front tables & chairs, to cozy, intimate booths for two.

Yikes - something has really changed here, if past, posative reviews are any indication. Looking at the menu posted in the window, we were very excited to give this place a try - The warm ambience and comfortable seating was truly inviting after a long day of trekking around the cranberry festival. Upon our arrival, (we were the first folks in for dinner) I was interesting to hear from our waitress that the "chef was so overwhelmed" by the action during the day, that he hadn't had time to make more chowder. In retrospect, this comment was a true harbinger to come. Given all the other intriguing appetizer/tapas to explore, we proceeded to order 3 appies, and asked that the goat cheese/cranberry option be served first. Instead, the mussels in tomato/chorizo sauce arrived and what a mucky overcooked, rubbery mess they were - Yuck. Next up was the goat cheese/cranberry chutney option, which in some ways was quite good, but why, why why would you serve this with a sweet cranberry bread - it really needed to rest on a more savory base.
Lastly, we shared the star option of the evening - Lamb chops with potato and jus - beautiful!

Service was mediocre - I think our waitress was trying, but it appeared she was very inexperienced, so was not very attentive - we were left having to ask for water, to have our table candle lit etc. Fortunately, the wine selection was good and came very promptly!

Would we try this place again? Absolutely, as there is a lot of potential here and the space is elegant and sophisticated - the food and service just have to catch up the room!

It was our first time at this restaurant and it was our last. The food was irratic in arriving at our table. Some of our party had finished their dinners while others were still on appitisers. The croutons in my ceasar salad were so hard I could not eat them. Drinks were good but some of our dinner party members waited much too long for drinks to arrive. Shortly after I had the seafood pasta I became ill. I cannot say if it was the food but I am not willing to chance it again. Overall I will not recommend this restaurant to any of my friends. Far too many better ones out there.
