used to be good...

I've been to Northlands a half dozen times or so. The food is excellent & the view can't be beat. However, the last couple times I've gone, the only server working is friendly but never around. Both times my husband had to chase him down to ask where our food was, & we waited over half an hour for our meals even though there were only a few tables occupied. Then we had to chase the server down again to pay the bill. It's a lovely place if you have ages to wait for your food, but I probably won't be going back for a while. Hopefully they shape up. It used to be a great place with excellent value, but the slow service is a real turnoff.

De Dutch Pannekoek House1634 Capilano Road, North Vancouver
Great Dutch Pancake breakfast
By aj67 of Burnaby (28 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, March 25, 2012 - 5:42pm [Dine in]

We decided on brunch this morning with a gift certificate for DeDutch.
It was Sunday morning at 11 am. We had to wait about 10 mins.

I agree with others, this place is very small. Although I find that many other of the DeDutch restaurants are also very small. I am not sure why.

But once I was seated I did not really care about the size of the place.

The coffee arrived right away, and was regularly filled, and we even got more cream when we were running low and we did not even ask.

I had the Boer’s (Farmer’s) which includes
Hash Browns, Ham, DeBakon*, Bratwurst,
Eggs and Hollandaise all places on a large dutch thin pancake, or what we might call a crepe.

The hashbrowns were my least favourite, not much flavour and not crisp enough.
My sunnyside eggs were perfect!, the bacon and ham were great and the Bratwust was amazing. It
was full of flavour, so juicy with a perfect grill char. I loved it.

The dutch pancake was great, with a bit of a chew to it, I would like to try it plain with lemon and sugar next time.

Rainbowcrab had the french toast with egg and bacon. She really enjoyed it all.

We got a great amount of food and left full and satisfied.
We will go back.

Brazza Gelato and Coffee879 Marine Drive, #610, North Vancouver
Best sandwich ever - I mean ever
By angleoffood of north vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, March 21, 2012 - 9:12pm [Dine in]

ok, I know, I know - this place to known for its great coffee and gelato and yes I know they have won all those awards for it.
yes I know they are busy and have a great following.

But holy cow - the sandwiches are a hidden gem.

I needed some food quick and was picking up coffee at the new Brazza so I got the grilled vegi sandwich.
Cost is $5.80 which is good value

the server asked to grill it and I said yes.
I minute later I was eating the most amazing sandwich ever.

It had some artichoke sundried tomato pesto with grilled peppers and goat feta cheese.
The flavours complimented each other so well and are of really high quality.
The sandwich was very tasty.

I told the older manger/owner guy that I loved the sandwich and he told me they grill there own stuff with their own
extra virgin olive oil that he makes in Italy on his familiies olive grove. It is the same oil that he sells at the cafe
which has won the World Olive Competition in Spain

I'll be back - even if it is just for the food

my only complaint is that it is usually busy in there - so plan your trip.

Just go for the food, and nothing else!!

This place has the best desserts hands down, in comparison to Thierry's..this place is the best. They always have everything available once they open, like cakes, macaroons, chocolates, etc. The coffee is fantastic, its a very nice blend, its not bitter, and its never burnt. However, they can improve on the service. Most of the servers that work here have a "So what do you want? And now get the hell out" kind of attitude, they are attentive for the most part, but they are never friendly, and they seem annoyed all the time. What I find most strange is that you first place an order for say, a box of 12 macaroons, and then you tell the server that you want to pick your own flavours. You then stand on the side, and wait until a server calls your name. When the server calls your name, you go back to the counter, however, you have to push and shove your way through the counter, because there are always crowds of people just standing there waiting to be served, just to pick your flavours. I really do not understand why the customer cannot just tell the server the flavours that they want when they order. They make it more complicated than it really is.

Stale Food

Food: Coffee was old. Muffin was hard and stale tasting.

Server: She was very nice. But she was overworked by the owner.

Location: Convenient location, but the place seemed crowded and unorganized.

Some of the other items looked nice but not sure how fresh they are when I watched them take out frozen pastries from the fridge and let them defrost before serving them. I wonder when they were really made. Price wasn't too bad.

I would not return here because I don't think they stuff is fresh.

Hidden Secret

Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2012 - 9:26am [Dine in]

Our family went for brunch and although the place is hard to find we were glad we persisted. Breakfast was delicious with something for everyone. No kids menu for breakfast, however, the server assured us there was a kids menu with sandwiches pastas, no kids menu for eggs. There was one item on the menu for one egg and toast for around five bucks.

Coffee was delicious.

Are you kidding me?? Coziest Italian I've ever been to.
By Legat of North Vancouver, B.C, Canada (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, March 13, 2012 - 8:27pm [Dine in]

OK, I'm really not into writing reviews of places (SPECIALLY the ones I've only been to once), unless they're REALLY good or REALLY bad.

And I must say this, I have ABSOLUTELY no idea what these people who wrote the bad reviews are talking about!!!

I love Italian food and was really puzzled by the excellent and awful reviews I've seen here, so following the advice of one of them, I decided to ignore the bad critics and see it by myself (thank you for that, by the way!)

This is simply the coziest Italian restaurant I've EVER been to (and I've been to Italy!) I felt like I was in a Godfather scene.

It's the perfect place for a family celebration, a romantic dinner, a gathering with friends (all of which I've seen there and can picture myself doing) or just go by yourself and have a very pleasant experience (like I did - so in this particular case, it was ALL about the restaurant, not the company).

The food is great, so is the wine, the place is completely lovely and all the staff is very good, VERY attentive and friendly! The owner himself (straight out of Sicily, I must add) came out of the kitchen more than once to check on the clients and we chatted for a long time.

So I can only imagine that the bad reviews come from people who may have been there in a very crowded, busy weekend. My advice, choose another day, perhaps. But just do yourselves a favor and make your own opinion on it!

Best place in the lower mainland for coffee & dessert?
By BigAnthony of North Burnaby (106 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, March 12, 2012 - 11:19am [Take-out]

I found out about Thomas Haas from this website because it is one of the most highly rated places so I decided to head out to north vancouver to give it a try. I ordered a cappuccino - $3.25, 4 of their individual desserts to take home - $22 and a box of 18 chocolates - $30.. for a total of $61.88

My experience.. The place is kind of tucked away once finding it I enter and it's crowded (went on a saturday afternoon) There's nowhere to really stand, there are people sitting along the window enjoying a coffee with the line up kind of bumping into/squeezing past them. Not the most comfortable place to dine in. Actually I felt very uncomfortable being in there and would never stay there to eat and drink unless the place was empty. The tight crowded space is my only complaint.

The service was very professional and friendly.
The cappuccino - WOW.. what have I been drinking all the other times that I order a cappuccino at the popular coffee spots? This is the best cappuccino I have ever drank out of a cardboard cup!
The desserts - I had them with my wife and were very good.. Next time we go to a dinner I think we will supply the dessert from here -) She loved the "caramel & chocolate brownie cake"
The chocolates/truffles - I had a selection and was impressed, I loved the "merlot" with a nice chocolate/wine taste. Also the "marc de champagne" was nice (milk chocolate gnache perfumed with champagne and eau de vie from champagne grapes.

Overall, if you are looking for an excellent coffee/dessert spot you must try this one out.

A mixed review
By aj67 of Burnaby (28 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, March 10, 2012 - 7:41pm [Take-out]

Rainbowcrab and I went here with our groupon. I was very excitied to try the slow roasted lamb. I was sad to discover that they did not have the lamb at this location, but did at the Pemberton location. So I decided to try and roasted sirloin steak sandwich, and chose to have it with mayo, the spicy cilantro sauce ( Mmmm)
red and green peppers,onions and lettuce.
My sandwich was ok,, the meat was very dry. I was so disappointed by this. The sauce and bread were amazing. But that did not make up for the meat.

Rainbowcrab however had a more traditional sandwich. She had the turkey cold cut, and chose the spinich avacado spread, with a variety of veggies. She LOVED her sandwich!

Both sandwiches were huge and worth the money. We both want to go back. Yes i still want to try the lamb.

So will have to let you know how it goes.
Oh and the service was very friendly and helpful.

I love Mr Sushi.
You can tell a good sushi by its rice! The fish is really fresh, and they have a cute menu with Lynn Valley specific combos.
And the rolls are all of superb quality - Combos are excellent value. The place is small but cosy and on Friday nights, it feels like coming home to meet family!
Staff is superfriendly.

Highly recommended

This used to be a hip place with good food, generous portions, and friendly staff. Now- not so much.

Our breakfast was not even mediocre, it was totally overpriced and the portions were tiny.
The Eggs Benedict for $9.00 ( half portion) consisted of a barely warm English Muffin (half), one egg with a bit of lukewarm sauce, 3 limp, raw spinach leaves. ( We had one half and one full portion, and they both were on the small side). We substituted the potatoes with "fruit" for an extra $3.00; these fruit were served very unimaginatively in a little half- cup and consisted of 5 melon pieces, 2 cut-up strawberries, 1 slice of orange.
A little more effort could have been put into the presentation - everything looked really "thrown together". And the waffles - better go to Whitespot, at least their service is fast and friendly.
The three of us paid $60.00 ( with tip) for a small breakfast that left us hungry. Not recommended if you want to go mountainbiking afte wards!

Birthday beers & dining out whilst watching the hockey
By Kelvin_Brown of North Vancouver, BC (19 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, March 7, 2012 - 5:43pm [Dine in]

We went on Tues. for birthday beers & something to eat. The beer was OK, the service was basis. There appeared to be only one waitress serving a whole pub full of customers, so as a consequence service was slow. The lass in question was a little inexperienced too, but was trying hard.

The food was basic too. I would have liked the Guinness & steak pie, but this I was told had sold out, so I opted for the NY steak sandwich / burger. When the food came the (medium-rare) steak was tepid, while the chips (fries) & onion rings were hot, suggesting the steak had been sitting around waiting to be served. I sent the meal back to be re-heated & was rewarded with a few extra chips. However, the steak tasted as if it had been grilled on a recently sanitised hot plate. mmm ! Suspicious ! Not great. The battered onion rings were oily & basic.

Nevertheless, the pub was very popular. Most people had come to watch the hockey, the loud coverage of which made conversation difficult.

The place is conveniently located in Lower Lonsdale, has an affordable range of menu items, but whilst the beer & alcoholic beverages were OK, the standard of the food is sadly lacking.

Best soup and sandwich deal in North Vancouver. The service is awesome. Quick, fresh, and a great selection of soups. The split pea soup is my favorite. A smart alternative to the fast food restaurants, for the same price! Phoned ahead and got lunch for our whole crew, manager was kind and gave us a discount for the large order, wasn't expected, so it exceeded my expectations! Only thing I would suggest is that they update their Website, would order online more often. Otherwise, Good job!

A very good bowl of soup!!!!
By lindarose of Vancouver (172 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, February 25, 2012 - 5:02pm [Dine in]

Went to Lonsdale Quay with my daughter and decided on soup for our lunch. I had noted many people ordering here and they all seemed to enjoy their meal. I also noted that the soup was served in ceramic bowls if one choose to eat it at their counter or one of the nearby tables. Styrofoam is not the nicest tasting stuff in the world (although they do serve in styrofoam containter "to go").

I decided on the seafood chowder. My daughter had the chicken, garlic, mushroom. We each ordered a small and each one came with a large, tasty bun. Each was $5 and change.

OMG - the soup was good!!!! My seafood chowder had a delicious tomato based broth and big chunks of fish, as well as smaller pieces of shrimp and other seafood. It was soooooo tasty. The bun was nice too.

My daughter chicken, mushroom, garlic was divine. Lots of chicken and nice shrooms. Delicious broth.

We helped ourselves to water, there was also extra condiments (such as hot sauce) available to kick the soup up a notch if so desired. I liked the soup just the way it was. Hot and tasty.

I'll make this my go-to place when I visit the Quay.

Flavorless Cardboard Pizza - So Disappointing and a waste of money and time
By col22 of North Vancouver, B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, February 24, 2012 - 7:09pm [Take-out]

Ordered a meat pizza, greasy, weird after taste. The pizza dough is bland and oily and the sauce is flavorless.

Ordered a thin crust Baja Thin Crust was like eating cardboard. There was no cilantro, there was way way way too much corn, it had no sauce at all. My daughter and I tried it and actually threw it away. And we never waste food. The crust seemed like it had been deep fried and then topped it was so greasy.

My stomach is hurting just sitting here writing this.

We were very disappointed and will definitely not be going back there. I called the manager and calmly told him our experience and explained I wanted no refund or gift cert. I just wanted him to speak to his chef and let him know that we were throwing food out. Actually it isn't food and I am not sure what it is.

We will never go back and will let others know. Boston Pizza used to have good food and it was tasty. If this is the standard of food now. Wow. They need to figure this out.

Too bad because all the big screens playing the game etc. It could have been fun, and it was early, but the place was empty.

We did eat our pizza's at home and did reheat them a bit, hoping to help the flavor. Nope.

Persian cuisine in a modern & chic ambiance at great prices. Zeitoon Restaurant is a true gem in North Vancouver's Central Lonsdale.

The atmosphere is great. Pictures of old Tehran along with persian music makes you feel you are dining in iran.
The staff are very friendly and polite.
The food is just great. It tastes like the food that you get in best persian restaurants in tehran and elsewhere in iran.
The restaurant also offers wine and beer which is fantastic because most persian restaurants don`t offer alcoholic drinks.
