How long was I asleep?

We truly felt like we stepped back in time when we visited this restaurant in Maple Ridge. We were celebrating the 80th birthday of my Grandmom who has been here many times over the years.

For our large table, we certainly had no complaints about the service, the young man who took care of us was great. A few small issues, but nothing worth causing a fuss about.

The food was unremarkable. I don't think they have added a new menu item since 1976. Food on a plate. Some items adequate, some not. Cutting edge it is not. Snyone in our party over 65 thought everything was good, anyone 40 or under thought everything was lousy, anyone in between, thought ... you get the idea.

Value was good for the portion sizes.

I'd never go back, I'm sure Grandmom will.

Holster That Spray Clean Bottle Partner

Submitted Monday, April 27, 2009 - 9:03pm [Dine in]

La Trattoria is one of the few fine dinning places that is available in the Ridge and has been an enjoyable place since it opened. We went there recently for our anniversary and were looking forward to good food served in a nice quiet spot. Food was good, but the waiter with the spray bottle was over the top. It didn't seem to matter that he was spraying clouds of noxious cleaner throughout the restaurant or that the sound of his spray bottle resembled the fart scene in the movie Blazzing Sadlles. The few tables left dining in the restaurant gave looks and stares of annoyance as we did, but to no avail. The behaviour of serving staff is an obvious message to patrons, get the hell out I want to go home. I like this place and will return. If the waiter pulls out that spray bottle I will ask him to holster that puppy so us rednecks can enjoy our chow.

spaghetti tratoria... dry, lacked sauce, no taste other than hot (cayenne) no herbs, seasoning, garlic etc "black beans" in spaghetti? awful

Fettucini golosa - tastless, no mushrooms, ham slimy, bland, tasted like it came out of a can.

will never go here again for food. Very dissapointing!!!!

I have been to the Abbotsford location twice with my family. Both times that I have been there it was a wonderful experience. The food is wonderful and very good. You get very good portion of food for the price you pay and it is very well worth it. They have a good selection and variety of different types and style of food. Their drink menu is a good variety as well. I love going to the resturant and the one in Abbotsford is a very nice atmosphere and a very nicely designed resturant. I would totally recommend it to all of my friends and family and will continue to go there whenever I can.

We left a tip
By hotdogbunboi of vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, April 9, 2009 - 2:28am [Dine in]

I cannot explain how extatic i was with this restaurant. Upon reading the reviews we figured it was time to try after reading the, "wheres the tip" review, being so bad in there ONE time experience. I have been to so many restaurants around the world and i have to say pardon my word but @#%! happens, in every restaurant. The one you may think is the best may be because you did not catch them on a bad day, try going to that same restaurant over and over again your view could change. I just want to say this place is a wonderful place to relax, eat, drink, and talk. You should also not try it just once if your FIRST experience was not the best.

Food - My appetizer was good GRILLED prawns they were GRILLED like the menu stated. The server
asked if i wanted somthing else if i did not like the way they make there food, i said no its just what i ordered i thought i was a good thing they offered to fix the problem if there was one.

Service - "Up where" the tim hortons drive though with young untrained employee's i said one sugar and three cream. Any way yes they were busy most likely under staffed but they handled it so well just watching them work fast, but getting things done and saying things like pardon my reach was good to here instead of reaching unwarned. The service was authentic? what is authentic serving look it up or dine with the queen of england to see the top service. Me and my guests were glad the server wasent a show of and took his job cerious by coming back to clear the rest of the table instead of taking it all at once and dropping it. We felt so STRONG about the service stong meaning plus, good and tipping because if your food is burnt the server dident cook it the chef did. And if i was rude and dident give the benifit of the doubt by not tipping i wouldent show our faces again either....

Value - The bill for 4 people was $72.84 for 4 appetizers and 4 main courses the drinks were extra of course but thats every where you go and i dident feel that they owed me money because i got my food and drinks and i dident have to go to the kitchen to get my own food or go to the bar to mix my own drinks.

Ambiance - WE enjoyed the restaurant, just the right mood. The washrooms were not in the best order but having later reservations and the restaurant being full that night i understood the sercomstances. Cant have one person in the washroom all night making sure there isent any one throwing paper town on the floor.

Overall great place to try more than once.

Stopped in last week for brunch. My wife ordered a burger and fries which she said was very good. The fries were fresh chipped and reminded us of going for fish and chips at Grandville Island as kids.

I had Sausage and eggs and was impressed. Sausages were run of the mill but the pan fries were awesome. Nice to finially get real potatoes and not those rehydrated shredded things you see at most restaurants or those deep fried cubes.

Service was the best part. The hostess and both waitresses made us feel like a million bucks.

We'll be back next time we're in the area for sure!

I have eaten at this restraunt for five years & today was my last day.It has slowly been going downhill with the quality of their food.The food now comes dripping in grease , the toast should be toasted , if I wanted raw bacon I would go & get some sushi & last the hash browns come in cubes covered in oil and not cooked.They used to have good omlettes.The servers are excellent.I would not recommend eating here as I just wasted $26 for two breakfasts.

Don't get it!

Submitted Saturday, February 21, 2009 - 1:13pm [Dine in]

This place has a great location and that's about it. Tha ambiance is lacking, servers seem untrained and the food resembles White Spots menu. I had the chicken curry and was amazed at how small the amount of chicken was in the dish, maybe 3oz! Nachos were a single layer, very basic and for almost $13? Come on guys, you have such an opportunity to sink your claws into a regular clientel and you are missing it. Get a chef who knows this market a bit better than a consulatant from Vancouver. So much potential yet always a disapointment.

We went out for dinner with some friends last week and were totally wowed. There were only a few tables, but the phones were ringing off the hook, so looks like these guys do a lot of take away business-- and no wonder! We ordered a couple of pizzas and a lasagna to share and it was amazing. You can definitely tell everything's house-made, as they claim in the menu. Started with a Greek salad which was the best I've ever had. So good we bought a bottle of the dressing to take home. Definitely not modern decor and the waitress was busy, but she was friendly and refilled our drinks all night. Too bad it's in Maple Ridge. Kits could really use a place like this!

GM Restaurant - Great Indian Cuisine
By ngo of Mission (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, February 16, 2009 - 7:02pm [Dine in]

GM Restaurant offers great Indian food. The food isn't overly spicy (it caters to westerners) and as someone who can handle a lot of spice, I am sure I could handle "hot". Last time I ordered "medium" and it was good but, definitely not a mouth-burner. As for price, it is not cheap however, not expensive. My boyfriend and I can go on a Friday night and order a few beers with dinner and get out of there for $60 which is cheaper than dinner for us anywhere else (the only time we get out of a restaurant for $37 is for breakfast). The service has always been good. As for decor, it is not the worst but, not very good either. However, anyone who goes to an Indian resaurant expecting great decor is as crazy as someone going to a Japanese restaurant and expecting great service (especially outside of the city). The restaurant is family run and the atmosphere is always warm and inviting. The food and atmosphere at GM is better than any of the Indian restaurants in Abbotsford. My boyfriend and I eat out FAR too much and often at fairly expensive restaurants such as The Cannery and Bluewater Cafe and we still both LOVE GM restaurant!!!

A fantastic addition to the area
By Greenland of Pitt Meadows (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, January 1, 2009 - 11:32pm [Dine in]

I have lived in the Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge area for almost 30 years and am so pleased at the arrival of Kingfishers to the area. We were in much need of a higher-end (though not super fancy) dining venue. The greatest strength of the restaurant is the service. I have been to Kingfishers around 10 times and every time the staff have been friendly, approachable, and responsive, but not overbearing (I hate it when wait staff are too present during my meals). The owners of the restaurant have been really thoughtful about the whole dining experience, creating a great open dining space with comfortable furniture, flexibility in the seating (that can accommodate families, singles dropping in for a quick beer on the way home from work, and romantic couples), and designing a building that really takes advantage of the beautiful view of the river and Mount Baker. There is varied menu with lots of healthy choices (rare in the pub world). The fish and chips are fantastic! Kingfishers is a restaurant with great value: good food, great view, and a wonderful local feel that is a pleasant change from the sterile and cookie-cutter environments of all the chain restaurants.

Great night out

Submitted Thursday, January 1, 2009 - 2:29pm [Dine in]

We've been here about six times now. The selection is varied enough that you can keep going back and experience something new each time. Though not really a beer drinker, they have some really cool selections of unique beer.
This is NOT simply a step up from the old fish and chip place. This is a classy restaurant. The owners have gone way beyond what this area is ready for and are leaders in trying to bring a new level of class to the Albion waterfront.
We were there for New Year's Eve dinner at the 8:00 p.m. seating and the dinner was fantastic. The service was awesome. The fit everyone in, including some who didn't pre-purchase their tickets. The chef plated the food in a very upscale, classy fashion.
The live music is always great.

I met a friend of mine at Kingfishers at the suggestion of a coworker and boy was I satisfied!

We started with chicken tenders which were piping hot and really quite tasty. For dinner, I ordered the meatloaf (scrum-diddly-umptious), and he had the quesadilla and we were both impressed with the taste, presentation, and speed at which our entrées were served.

The waitress was cheerful, on the ball, and really quite personable which was a nice treat. The restaurant was packed, and the entertainment played catchy tunes for us to bob our heads to.

It's a good thing that Kingfishers isn't closer to home or I'd be broke from going there so often! But definitely worth the trek for an early evening (great river-viewing time) dinner or drinks!

I am so surprised at that there are bad reviews about the food at the Kingfisher. My husband and I have been probably 7 times and have really enjoyed the food every time. I really feel the owners try to keep things new and fresh and take pride in the menu. I can't say I have ever had the best service ever, but nothing I would complain about. The tables are pretty close together and if you sit at a table with one of the vents in the floor...brrr... I think the Kingfisher will get better with time. Starting a restaurant is not easy and I really commend the husband/wife team and think they have done a great job. Like I said - I have been very happy with my meal every time and so has my husband. I love to cook, love trying new food and I would very much recommend the Kingfisher.

Austin Fish & Chips22709 Lougheed Hwy, #690, Maple Ridge
Dependably Excellent Fish and Chips
By Dashe of Maple Ridge (3 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 10, 2008 - 1:18pm [Dine in]

We occasionally eat here for lunch, and the decor is a bit, um, simple, but the fish is what it's all about, after all, right?

We always get cod and chips, always fresh and crisp with a nicely cooked thinnish batter, and homemade chips. Takeout fish stays crisp (if you're a fast driver, call ahead!) for quite a while. The fish is firm and pretty much perfect.

Coleslaw is average, fresh; but it needs more dressing. Tartar sauce is okay, but it contains dill, which I'm not wild about.

So all in all, I recommend Austins for consistently good fish and chips, in-house, or takeout.

Greek Greek Greek
By honandsweetie of maple ridge (3 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 7, 2008 - 9:41am [Dine in]

This restaurant screams Greek from the moment you enter the door. Old hardwood flooring, tile and plaster on all the walls, Gothic Arches and Greek memorabilia give it an old world charm. The waitress even looked authentic. The restaurant had a couple large party's as well as some individuals who seemed to be regulars. The only complaint was, needing a good airing out.
The waitress took a couple of trips to our table before relaxing and breaking open a smile, but was helpful and competent. Our wine was delivered in an old olive oil can partly filled with crushed ice. The Pita Bread and Tzatziki was warm and tasty. We settled on a Combination Plate for the appetizer, which was excellent. A good variety allowed us to taste a little of everything.
We chose Prawns Souvlaki and Calamari for our entree's and both were very well done. Large portions, too much in fact, so that we didn't have room for dessert. A special coffee, was all we could handle.
A very enjoyable evening and interesting ambiance.

Lunch at the GM
By M_Wood of Maple Ridge (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, December 2, 2008 - 4:47pm [Dine in]

I consider myself a somewhat restaurateur and have extensive knowledge in the restaurant business. So i decided to try out a Maple Ridge restaurant that i had a review from my friend who raved about the place. The parking lot was stupid to get to and a pain to drive in and out of but that's not a huge issue. The Restaurant decor was sub-par although they did have some nice features like a waterfall mirror on the bar and a fountain in the main room. But the rest of the decor and poor quility furniture took away from it. My server was excellent, funny, and curteous. The food was fairly quick and quite tasty (had Butter Chicken and Naan bread). One of my main complaints was the price though. A 37 dollar bill for two peopel to have rice, bread, and butter chicken. Seems a bit outrageous. Thank goodness someone else was taking care of the tip. All in all i would avoid going to the restaurant itself and getting some takeout instead, but be warned that you'll pay a heavy fee for this indian food.
