My go to place

Submitted Saturday, May 22, 2010 - 5:13pm [Dine in]

I've become a regular here in the past year or so. They are great at what they do, which is pasta.

Although I often have the same thing, it's always great. Always the same nice girl serving, friendly as can be, even when it's full ... it's a small place but anyone who can do 7-8 tables at once on their own and (A.) smile and joke around and (B.) fit me in when I walk in is ACES with me. The chef sometimes comes out to deliver your food, which I love. Not cheap for what you get, but certainly reasonable. The ambiance for me is just fine, the place has quite obviously not been updated in some time, and shows its age a little, but I don't mind that in my go-to neighbourhood hole in the wall hang out.

You wouldn't be disappointed, unless you go expecting Umbertos.

What do you want for $9
By love2dineout of Port Coquilam (10 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, May 22, 2010 - 5:06pm [Dine in]

Been here quite a few times over the past year, just when I want a fill-up of cheap knock off chinese food, as I sometimes do.

Food is never anything great, but you get what you pay for. It's good enough for what it is.

Service is always fine, just clear my plates, pour me some water and throw me the odd smile and I'm good to go.

Value, well, $9 for 20-25 items is fine by me. Usually hot, usually re-fill the items, even when you arrive, as I sometimes do, 20 minutes before they close.

Ambience, hey it's clean enough and they have free papers for me to read so I'm happy.

Paliotti's Ristorante Italiano12018 Edge St, Maple Ridge
Definitely Recommend the Abbostford Location over the Maple Ridge Location!

Submitted Wednesday, May 19, 2010 - 1:46am [Dine in]

We've dined at the Abbotsford Pallitoi's a few times now, and have enjoyed the food and service during each visit, we happened to be in Maple Ridge the other night and came across the original Paliotti's and decided to give it a try. Being a Tuesday evening we had no problems getting in, we were quickly seated, and greeted by our server. We instantly noticed the tired and tacky decor (fake plants and cheezy patterned vinyl tablecloths) the restaurant is dark, and in desperate need of a total makeover! After ordering, we were quickly brought homemade baked bread and balsamic olive oil dipping oil. The Bread was fantastic, light and well seasoned. We shared the Bruschetta appy which was more like a Caprese pizza than Bruschetta, to us Bruschetta is quality, grilled tuscan bread, drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic, Great Roma Tomatoes, Basil and fresh Parmigiano. Palliotti's version was more like thick pizza crust, with a handful of mozza, a few tomatoes and some dried herbs, baked and served. Really not what we expected when ordering bruschetta. My husband ordered the Gnocchi in Tomato Sauce, tossed with Chicken and finished with a giant Meatball. Sauce was rather bland, Gnocchi slightly overcooked and the one meatball was described as having a soapy flavor?! Dish was very average. I was just looking for a quick, simple dish and decided on the Four Cheese Tortellini tossed in a Garlic, Cream Sauce. Sauce was decent, quite garlicky, great for the garlic lover, the dish was served piping hot, pasta was odd in that some tortellinis were overcooked and some were perfectly al dente...not really sure how one accomplishes this, but I'd say half the dish was cooked really well. The pizza parlor shaker Parmesan this restaurant offers is an insult to Italian food, I can't imagine any great Italian restaurant not offering freshly grated Parmigiano to garnish their pasta dishes!! We will say the service at Pallioti's was excellent, our server was friendly, helpful and attentive. Don't think we'll be back to this location however!

Mother's Day brunch was not well organized
By robatsea of Maple Ridge (5 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, May 18, 2010 - 5:12am [Dine in]

My family attended the Mother's Day Brunch at Kingfisher's, which had seatings at 11 am and 1 pm. I had been here twice previously; they have a very nicely designed facility and the deck is great for sunny-day enjoyment. Menu is pricey, but food has been good. However the brunch on this particular day was not well organized. It took over 40 minutes to shuffle through the line-up for food. I'm guessing the bottle neck was caused by the time it takes to make crepes or omelettes towards the end, but perhaps these could have been moved elsewhere to make for an easier traffic flow. By time we got to where the seafood was it had been thoroughly picked over. Food was okay (soups were really good), the rest nothing fantastic. Their website advertises an $18 brunch fee which is high enough, but for Mother's Day it was $20. I'm not sure what extra food may have been presented, but at $20 it was WAY over priced - especially when you consider the lousy wait in line you have to endure just to get one go at the buffet line. People were trying to juggle as much as they could on one plate so as not to suffer that twice, especially when you only had a two-hour dining window.

Best Curry in lower mainland

I would drive the distance for sating my curry cravings. Ambiance doesn't really matter to me, because I order take away. The staff are courteous and always remember me. The portions are quite generous, for instance two meals can easily feed three people. The curry is fresh and flavourful, better than I can make at home. Although I have no room for desert, I can't resist the homemade cheesecake, for later.

Great place, great views, great service, great prices...... the food? not so good.
By bullocks of Maple Ridge (4 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, April 16, 2010 - 10:11pm [Dine in]

Sat out on the patio, beautiful view, im sold right there, river and sunset to boot, great service, im in heaven....then the food came...hopes dashed.

We first ordered drinks, very impressed so far, affordable ($5.50 for a microbrew, $7 for cocktail - no complaints), ordered an appy, calamari, $13, a little above average but if its good Ide even pay more.... wasnt good, average at best. First off, the calamari itself was fine, batter was nice light, not greasy, well cooked.... the tzatziki was a bit odd, tasteless, no yogurt flavor, and large chunks of cucumber that you cant scoop up with the soft calamari, just didnt fit the dish. They advertised cilantro calamari, i love cilantro, but it was mixed into the batter and deepfried??? , odd never seen deep fried cilantro, zero cilantro flavor, why not use fresh cilantro? odd cooking style.

Next we ordered entries, Paella and quesadillas, the quesadillas were quite good, although the plate was void of anything but the quesadillas, no even a piece of parsley or cantaloupe something? just seemed lazy, but they where good so no complaints there.

Paella potentially good but ruined, mushy, lazy, tasteless. First off, huge muscles ontop, impressed until realized their almost completely RAW with the texture of SNOT or FLEM or SPIT? not to appetizing, not to mention the health hazard, meals ruined at that point really but I scraped them to the side, went on eating hoping for better.

The next taste, cheap canned tomatoes and plain white rice? are you joking? no seafood flavor, no saffron flavor, no chirizo flavor, no spice flavors whatsoever, just bland tomato and rice, similar to ricearoni, very very disappointing; just throwing this out there... why not use fresh tomatoes?

Three tiny pieces of chirizo in the entire 5 pound tasteless rice mountain? worst of all, non of the flavors were infused into the dish, must have just added the seafood and sausage right at the end, after the rice was prepared(eg/ dump almers can into plain rice). paella is supposed to be stewed like a soup, rice added last so all the flavors infuse together with the rice.... lazyness.

I would still go back, I like the place, but I will not order an entree again, I would stick to simpler menu selections, beers and wings, beers and burgers, nachos and beers. To bad place has so much potential :)

We were recommended this restaurant by the realtor who sold us our new home in Maple Ridge. We probably would not have stopped in based on looks alone but were assured that the food and service were excellent, and we were not disappointed. The pasta is freshly made, the food is genuine Italian. Ricardo was our server and Nick was in the kitchen just as our realtor had promised. What Paliotti's lacks in decor it makes up for in quality and service.

Met my mother at this restaurant the other day at her recommendation. I'll be back!

Service was very friendly. My Mom loved the particular waitress who I guess takes care of her on a regular basis. She was a bit fake for me but some people like all the "sweeties" and "darlings".

The food was the real highlight. I had my stand by bacon and eggs and was really impressed. Eggs cooked just right, bacon was fresh and they give you 2 types of potato to choose from. I guess this is new because the waitress made a point of explaining them to us. I had the shredded and my Mom had the deep fried ones. Both were really good. My Mom had the special and really enjoyed it too.

On the way out Mom pointed out the pies and I'll be back for dinner soon so I can try them out! Looked really good.

The only thing I really didn't like was the coffee refills. A bit slow for my liking.

After being spoiled rotten by a wide selection of outstanding sushi restaurants in Burnaby for the last 9 years - I have been searching for good tasting and value priced sushi restaurant here in Maple Ridge. This is definitely it! The place appears to be run by Japanese people and when I went in to pick up my order, the place was filled with Japanese patrons. Always a good sign to me! Our order was prepared promptly, and tasted very fresh! The portions were appropriately sized and the presentation was very appealing. The Alaska roll is made from REAL crab - which you don't find in many places anywhere in Metro Vancouver. And the best thing of all- is that the food is priced properly - no $5 negitoro rolls here! Actual retail price = $2.50!! Yipee!

Two thumbs way up for this sushi restaurant!

I was waiting for an Italian place like this one to open in town and it finally has!!Not only it's clean,welcoming and friendly,but the food is outstanding!!
The owners Daniel & Rosangela make everything from scratch.He makes delicious authentic Italian bread and she cookes the best soups you'll ever try!
They make panini,wraps,sandwiches,pasta dishes and the best award winning pastries and cakes,like their Sicilian Cannoli and New York style cheesecakes.
Pricier than most places but it's sure worth the visit!
I give it a Five Star rating!

My favourite Maple Ridge Restaurant :)

I've enjoyed the food at Halu Sushi for 4-5 years now. The food is very tasty, and always fresh! The service is wonderful, the girls are always happy, which in turns makes me in a better mood!
I do enjoy my favourite: Teriyaki chicken and tempura! I know...not sushi-like foods, but they make them perfectly and for $6.95 for box A ...it's a dream come true :) I hope they never take it off the menu!
I'm a huge fan of Japanese restaurants that have other things to offer aside from sushi!
Now as for the sushi, it's not the cheapest, but it's always fresh, and tasty! Compared to other sushi restaurants Halu Sushi's prices are right where they should be.
The ambiance is ....just perfect! It's very modern, clean and well decorated.
They are closed on Sundays, just a FYI.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Maple Ridge :)

Mrs. C and I were in the Chasiucruiser and we were hungry. Since there was nothing else nearby we decided to give Bruce's a try. The restaurant is attached to a market and bakery and nothing was very clean. The w/c was okay though. There was a big selection of foods, with everything from sandwiches to chicken. I had a spinach calzone which as okay, but poor Mrs. Chasiubow had some dessicated chicken with stale fries. Echhh! We also shared some lukewarm tea. The eating area was filthy, and could have used some cleaning. Service was quick and the price was not to high, so no issues there. Overall though, it was a regrettable experience we won't repeat.

I've ordered here a few times, and when they first opened, the pizza was quite good. The last time I ordered here I think it will be my last. The pizza, in appearance looked great, and had lots of toppings, but the taste was a bit off. The sauce and many of the meats taste like they've been sitting in a fridge for a week and ended up pulling some of them off...the ham was slimy...and rather stale. The last two times ordering here its been like this. The peppers they included were dry and one had brown spots on it like it hadn't been stored correctly. There are better pizza places in the area.

You ordered WHAT...?

Submitted Friday, January 22, 2010 - 9:43am [Dine in]

Step-daughter took the Other Half and I here for lunch recently. Three adults and a new baby in a carseat took two people to get us seated. We had barely opened the menus and the server was there to take orders. We asked for green tea and a few more moments and then didn't see her for quite some time. The tea was VERY weak and not very hot.

Step-daughter ordered a dynamite combo, the OH ordered a sushi/sashimi bento and I ordered ten-don, miso soup and spinach goma-ae. Spinach arrived almost immediately and was the first sign something wasn't up to standard. The goma-ae dressing was super-sweet and there wasn't much of it plopped on top of stringy spinach. The spinach had not been inspected for quality and some of the pieces were old and discoloured. The whole thing would have been more edible if the spinach had been chopped even a little bit, but the leaves were whole and stringy.

Step-daughter's combo arrived, the two miso soups arrived, and then the ten-don for me. The sushi looked to be standard issue, fake crab/surimi much in evidence. The ten-don was a disappointment. One tiny tempura shrimp, one half piece each of squash, sweet potato and white potato. Overall was poured a dark brown gloppy, very sweet sauce with some shreds of carrot and onion that was advertized as "ten-don sauce". Not tempura dipping sauce, but a mystery gravy poured over everything, soaking the rice below.
The OH sat back to wait, but nothing arrived.

After watching later arrivals being served their food, we asked the server about the OH's bento. "Just a minute, just a minute!" and she rushed away. After that, she was into avoidance mode, avoiding eye contact, avoiding passing by our table. By this time, I had finished as much as I wanted of my meal and step-daughter was still waiting politely for her father's order to arrive (mine was a hot - OK, warm - dish, hers was sushi rolls - in my defense for seeming rudeness!) While they WERE busy at lunchtime, no one stopped by so that we could ask about the missing bento. Finally, I was on my feet ready to go get the "boss lady" when she realized I was on my way over. When we told her that Bento F had not arrived, she said... "you didn't order it" and "I wondered why HE wasn't eating". WTF? Then why was a miso soup (part of the bento set) delivered to the OH? After a brief "discussion" (yes we did order it, no you didn't, yes we did), she headed for the kitchen. Both step-daughter and I had finished our meals by the time his arrived with a muttered "sorry".

During all this time, no fresh tea was offered, although the servers were bustling the teapot around to other tables.

OK, enough venting. Quality of food was "meh" to the extreme. Value was not there - my icky sauce-drowned "ten-don" was $10, small and stringy goma-ae was $4, the bento (standard amount of food, and the tempura was not hot) was $15. The room was standard "Japanese" with phony cherry blossoms. The bathroom was clean enough.

The bill was the only thing to arrive with any alacrity, and there was an extra charge for a soft drink that had neither been ordered nor received. The charge was removed without any apology, and there was nothing else removed from the bill for the aggravation of their "overlooking" one order. They actually stuck to their story that we had NOT ordered the bento!

Would NOT recommend for quality, will NOT return because of having to argue to get an order that HAD been placed.

I had a breakfast meeting and I picked this place based on the strong reviews here. The restaurant was nicely appointed and clean, and the service was very good. They had a decent breakfast menu, and the prices were quite low, which is always a bonus. I had a tasty Denver sandwich and a cup of organic coffee for under ten bucks before tip. Not bad at all.

Call me nostalgic but if I was alive in the 50's I would love this place. It's a diner so expect burger's and soda's with a wrap around counter to saddle up for a good cuppa joe.

I've been here 4 times over the last 1 1/2 years and the last time we took my sister, brother-in-law and 3 kids (ranging in age from 6-16 years) and we all had a great time. Kids get a free icecream!

Great prices and a fun place. You'd want to go here before going rollerskating or bowling.

VERY BAD CUSTOMER RELATIONS, will not order from again
By Perry and Sherri of Pitt Meadows (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, December 10, 2009 - 8:20pm [Dine in]

We ordered from this restaurant for the first time recently and waited almost an hour for delivery, which was fine as it was a Friday night and we assumed they were busy. The driver finally arrived with the food and we set it on the table while my husband paid the driver with his Visa card. The driver came back a minute later and said that his wireless credit card machine apparently didn't work and asked my husband if he could run the card again. My husband gave him the card again and the driver said the machine had no signal and he asked my husband if he would get into his car with him and drive around the block until they could get a signal on the machine. My husband was gone for half an hour (after working almost 12 hours that day and wanting nothing more than to stay home and relax, hence why we ordcered take-out) and by the time he got back the food was cold and the machine was still not working. The driver then called the restaurant and told them what was happening and my husband offered to give them the card number over the phone so they could take the payment with the Visa machine at the restaurant, but the Chinese lady on the ohone told the driver to bring the food back with him!!!!!!! We were like, "Are you freakin kidding???" After we waited almost an hour for it to be delivered, and then they took my husband out for half an hour to get their stupid machine working and then they wanted to take the food BACK?? My husband told him NO WAY and shut the door. Very insulting. Why punish the first time customer for a problem with the restaurant????????? We will NEVER order from them again.

I was at a business breakfast at WS and I have to say it was not the best ever dining experience. Service was awful, and at one point I actually had to go to the back to hunt for the server. Despite the fact that the place was nearly empty, the kitchen was slow too. I had eggs benny, which featured dry overcooked hash browns and a tasteless sauce over undercooked eggs on stale English muffin halves. Even ketchup couldn’t save it. The coffee was similarly dismal, and in the morning you need a decent cuppa joe. The price was similar to other breakfast places in the area, and I will say the place was clean. That said, the poor food and service convinced me to stay away next time I am looking for a meal.
