A blast from the past, with modern and pretentious servers, food was good, even though my wife did not get what she had ordered (After waiting for 1 hour), and ended up in an argument with the server who was adamant he had not made a mistake as he has been doing his job for many years. (He should work for Chevrolet).............the place reminded me of someone going to the Brady Bunches house for dinner, and half the light bulbs were blown out in the dining room, Alice was on strike, the butcher was on crack and serving the meal. Please, do not use this place as a measure for dining in Maple Ridge. Order Gravy with your fries at A&W, at least you will get what you were expecting.

Soprano's Pizza22358 Lougheed Hwy., Maple Ridge
Not bad, not great
By MysticalManda of Haney, Maple Ridge (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, July 29, 2009 - 12:25pm [Dine in]

So my boyfriend doesn't like *my* regular pizza place, so we decided to try somewhere else (he's not from MR) and just kind of randomly picked Soprano's partly because of the name, and also because it's close and we could just walk down.

So we called, and didn't know what we wanted, and they were a little rude, but I know it was busy. When we went in we were like five minutes early and knew we'd be waiting for five minutes, but they acted like we were breathing down their necks. Anyway, *20* minutes later, we got our food. OK, you're busy, but still.

So we got it home, and it was OK, but considering it wasn't cheap, I was expecting more. So like I said, the food is definitely OK, and if someone else wants to order from there, I won't object, but I don't think I'll be going back on my own choice.

King's Kitchen22425 North Ave, Maple Ridge
Still worth the money
By walterk of Maple Ridge (3 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, July 29, 2009 - 12:12pm [Dine in]

King's Kitchen used to be my favourite place to get chinese after a long week, and while it still is, now it's more out of habit than love. I still enjoy the food, for the most part, when it's done right. More and more lately, however, I've been getting food that's been overcooked, burnt or tough. And it may just be me, but it seems to be getting greasier as well.

I have to agree that whatever they do to renovate, the setting is not in the most pleasant part of town. I don't care to park there for long periods at night, but I mostly just pick up, so that's ok. Service is usually ok, but I have had a couple of issues of being hung up on (accidently) and of having things forgotten on my order. Once I was late picking up and was given real attitude. It's my food that's going to be cold, I don't see why they should care.

Overall, the restaurant is still very solid, the food can be quite good, and the value is definitely there. If I were to compare it to other chinese places I've eaten at somewhat recently, I would still choose King's, it's just disappointing that it's not as good as it used to be.

Jim's Pizza/The Look-Out Restaurant11952 224th Street, Maple Ridge
Long-time favourite, best pizza ever!!
By walterk of Maple Ridge (3 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, July 29, 2009 - 11:55am [Dine in]

My family and I have lived in Maple Ridge, on and off, for the last forty years. After a brief stint in Langley, we moved back to Maple Ridge about 2 years ago. And I have to say, one of the things I missed most was Jim's Pizza! I've been eating this pizza since probably 1982, and it has always been the best pizza I can find.

Admittedly, we usually order for delivery, though sometimes we'll pick up, and lately we've been trying out the buffett on the weekends. I was picking up a couple of months ago and mentioned to the girl that I had been eating there since longer than she had probably been alive, but had never eaten inside the restaurant! Well that's changed, and the buffet is great. There's a good variety of food, and the price is very reasonable. The whole family enjoys it.

As I said, the food is just beyond description. You can tell when everything is made with care and thought. It's crafted, not just assembled. Service is usually very good. My one complaint is that sometimes deliveries take awhile on the weekends, but I'd rather eat at a busy restaurant than one no one wants to go to! I do wish the girls on the phone would be a bit more accurate with time estimates, but I've come to know how long it'll take, so I don't really pay much attention now!

The decor inside is pretty dated. It's definitely changed a lot since 1982, but maybe not so much in the last few years. At the same time, everything is clean, and it's a very comfortable place. My kids are more used to the slick trendy decor, but for me, I don't mind some nice wood panelling now and again!

If you haven't tried it, try it! You will not taste a better pizza in your life!!

Pass this one....

There are quite a few Chinese restaurants in Maple Ridge. This one would probably be slotted in to the awful pile. The only positive thing I can say about this place is the Sweet and Sour pork is pretty good. Other than that, it's awful. The Chicken Chow Mein is dry and tasteless. My beef about this place is the awful service. The girl who works there is very rude to customers. I went in there once to get take-out and when I went to pay she asked me if I wanted to make a tip?!? Like, are you serious here?? My obvious answer was a huge no. Thankfully...because when I got home the food was...crap.
The restaurant itself is very dirty and extremely tacky.
Would not recommend.

I've become more of a Starbucks type of gal this past year.
It is more money than a lot of other coffee shops, but it's definitely worth it when they make the drinks properly and serve you with a pleasant demeanor. I used to be a total hardcore Timmys Ice Cap fan, but they've dissapointed me with their watery Ice Caps over and over again. The Frappucinos at Starbucks are AWESOME. Not once have I ever had a dissapointing drink. The drive-thru at this location is slow. But it's worth the extra time and money in my opinion.

I've been to this Timmy's a handful of times. Every visit I'm faced with employees who really really don't want to be there. The service is very slow, not friendly and my pain peeve-off is the way they make the Ice-Caps. For pete-sakes make them properly!!! They've raised the prices of all of their drinks, the least they could do is make them the way they're supposed to be! Half the Ice Caps I've had from the Maple Ridge Timmy's are totally watered down. Like, they don't use enough Ice Cap mix. Just my two cents...

I would recomment eating-in if you can. The drive-thru service is Soooooo incredibly slow. I've got there several times in the drive-thru to get an ice cream cone. Seriously shouldnt have to wait 10 minutes. So, I got inside now...if at all. The inside is quite nice, it's newly renovated. But like most fast-food restaurants, the service could be better.

I agree with Mr.Munchy. You definitely have to make sure they're charging you the right price. Bring the flyer/advertisement with you. Although, you really shouldnt have to.
The pizza itself is okay. Quite greasy, but I guess that's to be expected with fast-food type pizza. Nice that they give you a garlic dip and some random peppers, that's a nice touch. The wings arent very good. They were burnt-tasting. If you need a pizza asap, then I guess this place would be okay.

Mrs. C and I were in MR and looking for chow, and we spotted this place. The interior looked like a typical family restaurant, sort of like a Denny's/Pantry... Everything was clean except the carpets. Service was pretty good and the place was packed, although we may have been the youngest people eating there.

We ordered a light lunch: I had a schnitzel with fries, and my beloved dining companion had a spinach salad and a cup of soup. We both had coffee. The schnitzel was way overcooked and was tough as leather. At least the fries were okay. I got a rather expensive side of gravy and that helped with the schnitzel. One point that irritated me was that the special schnitzel sauce touted on the menu was in fact the same gravy I got on the side. That was just plain wrong. The spinach salad was acceptable, and the soup was tasty so Mrs. C was satisfied.

As for value, that was a big disappointment. The meal was way more expensive that it ought to have been, and the total was about 30 bucks with tax and tip.

We won't be back. There are better choices in town.

Not as Good as the First Time...

We tried La Trattoria for the second time tonight after being so impressed with our first visit, service was again excellent, the food was not nearly as good as it was during our first experience. Bruschetta appy was decent, again needed seasoning. My fiance ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese, was okay, not spectacular, but alright. I ordered the Farfalle Primivera, as we'd so enjoyed it during our last visit.....The dish was very mediocre. Sauce was nothing like it was the first time we tried this restaurant, was runny and lacking flavor. I asked to have the pasta cooked extra al dente, it arrived so overcooked it was mushy, I can't stand overcooked pasta....completley ruined the dish. Again, we have no idea why a traditional Italian Restaurant like La Trattoria would serve "Kraft" Style Parmesean cheese.....cheap and unimpressive. Not so sure we'll make the drive out to Maple Ridge again for this average Italian experience.

This restaurant has been an institution (since i was a child) but hadn't gone to Jim's until 3 months ago for the buffet. Our kids just loved the macaroni salad, scallop potatos, lasagna, and just about everything else. I have three teenage boys, so it was a bargain... And as an added bonus I didn't need to cook! Thank you Jim's Pizza, We will be back on my next Mom's night off!

I have eaten here many times. The main reason I come back is the burgers. Best burgers you can buy for the price. I have tried many burgers from 7-11 microwave burgers to 20 dolar gourmet burgers and these rate among the best I have had. Service is usually prompt and friendly, if a little bit rushed. I am not crazy about the decor, but I can see the appeal to a very young or overly nostalgic crowd. (try the Louisiana style burger, double)

lamb lovers disappointment
By tastebud007 of Maple Ridge (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, June 8, 2009 - 10:50pm [Dine in]

well here it is....
we have lived in Maple Ridge for many years... the old Paliottis on Lougheed Hwy was the one we frequented. As it is no longer there we started going to the older, out dated one on Dewdney Trunk.
The prices are really reasonable, the food is not too bad... although we only go there for the rack of lamb...we have favorite resteraunts outside of our community however we go here to stay in town.
The last few times we have been we have been so disappointed. Being a Sat. night we made reservations. We were seated about 5 min after we arrived; placed our orders for Rack of Lamb. Ordered our drinks... the appies came about 1/2 hour later... after waiting for a little over an hour the waitress comes back to inform us they didn't have any lamb. I said we have been here 60 minutes and it took you that long to figure this out??? I suggested they have a sign saying out of lamb... or the waitress's be better informed as to the lack of items on the evenings menu! She tried to force pasta dishes on us...this is not what we come here for. Our regular waitress was in a different section...she came over and appologized as she knows we come in only for the rack of lamb.
I asked for our bill and was about to walk out...then I thought I woukld go back and see who the cook was on this evening he would not come out instead he told the waitress to waiver our entire bill.
We did come back after this ordeal...thinking it may have been a one off... we asked as we were seated; before ordering anything, if they had the rack of lamb... the waitress went back to ask... same waitress as last time...she took so long I knew this could not be a good thing... when she finally came back she said they only had one rack of lamb. I am glad we did not order anything...as we got up and left. I do not think I will be going back unless I phone a week ahead and get them to place lamb on their meat order.
On a positive note I have heard many people from our community say that the Palliottis in Langley or Abbotsford is well worth the drive.
Maple Ridge definately needs to step up its game when it comes to nicer dining establishments!!!

My husband does not enjoy curry. Crazy fellow. But I do! And when he goes out of town, I go to the GM Restaurant. I love it. Great value, great food. Actually, I know he really loves me because one day he took me there for dinner and a movie. I think he actually enjoyed the food, although it is not his thing.

It's Dairy Queen. They serve Dairy Queen. There's a drive through and a lobby.

Drive through service can be slow because it seems that the six people working the front counter are more concerned with the two customers inside.

But, there's always the nostalgia of the Dairy Queen basket of onion rings and this location is a lot quieter the the other one at the west end of town.

End of review.

We didn't know what to expect when we headed for this restaurant, but we think this will become a favorite haunt. We look forward to our next visit to the Ranch Bar and Grill. The ribs were delectible and tasted like none I've ever had before. The hot wings were more like searing wings, and we were pleasantly surprised. The all you can eat tacos for $3.99? AMAZING! It's great for a family get together, and I'm sure we will come more often.

Kingfishers; I am so confused..... They do have a wide selection of beer on tap - that is good. The Patio is great, if they would allow me to sit on the patio and drink beer all day; Kingfishers would get all 5 ratings; unfortunately I would get hungry, and have to eat, and the only menu around would be theirs......and that is where it all falls apart. When you walk in the front door; there is an air force of large flies circling the dining room; I don't know if they have come from the dirty river, or the dir... kitchen; either way, they look like they also are looking for a good seat in the dining room and are commited to flying around until the find one; thus they never land. I must be shallow, because if it wasn't for the great patio, I would never want to see Kingfisher again. OK, maybe I am being too hard on the ugly girl; If you do get a seat on the Patio, the food seems an awful lot better that it might otherwise. When the stars align; sunny day, patio seat, right menu choice and beer is flowing; Kingfishers can offer a great experience.
