Not my fault
By meeee of Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, March 10, 2014 - 10:57pm [Dine in]

"Not my fault" or words this effect. Lunch sucks" not my fault" burger order was wrong "not my fault" over priced spaghetti " NOT MY FAULT" most of the time that I end up here, I'm with somebody from out of the city, or the kids who like the milk shakes. I end up having to order something, yet almost every time that I do, I regret it. Sorry kids, we're not going back " not my fault."

Disappointing Food and Service
By of (0 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, March 7, 2014 - 8:33pm [Dine in]

We went far to North Vancouver and were disappointed in the very poor service and the food was marginal, not exceptional. I don't value it when a restaurant feels it is entitled to a tip when it should be earned and not given on a silver platter. They lost my recommendation and respect.

Nothing Special Here

Hello,

Started off with the ride up the tram filled with loud ski/snowboarders hitting you in the head with their boards and skis packed in like sardines.

Do not bother with this place there are many other better restaurants for a fraction of the price.
The fact hat we found a hair in our appetizer was not a good start.
Our Mains were cold and no flavor, definitely expected much more for those prices.
No view as it was overcast and the table of eight with two babies crying did not help.
Largest markup on wine I have ever seen, so called Sommelier needs to relax, 300% markup is ridiculous.

By the way there is no dress code as it says on their website, there were ski/snowboarders in their snow gear all around us.

Do not waist your time with this place.

Ethical Kitchen1600 McKay Road, North Vancouver
Best pancakes ever!
By masmillan of Cambie (11 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, February 24, 2014 - 1:46pm [Dine in]

I've been here so often I forget how I've come to discover this little gem. People may think it's a little pricey but if they understand the concept of the Weston A. Price Foundation and the direction this restaurant is following then it is a real value. You get a good nutritional and ethical bang for your dollar. It certainly fulfills my paleo lifestyle which I find very rare in the Lower Mainland.

The sourdough pancakes with the butter maple syrup is AWESOME! When in season this is topped with lots of local fresh berries and fruits and EK does not skimp on the syrup which is the BEST part. I'm a big eater and I love the portions of the pancakes. Same goes for their other breakfast dishes. It is a great value when you consider you're getting pasture raised eggs, pork and beef, local organic vegetables, homemade krauts with bioavailable probiotics.. Even when I've had almost TWO breakfasts at one time (oink oink) my stomach does not feel terrible like when I eat like a pig at other restaurants. This stuff sits well with me.

I love the atmosphere here. I feel like I'm eating at a farmer's home with it's large community tables, buying products from their pantry and watching diners come in from next door with noodles. Very community! Barb and the neighbouring store/restaurant share the dining area - tres cool!

I didn't want to reveal this but it would be selfish not to help out this place. I buy my FCLO here along with other paleo worthy goodies. She also sells coconut oil, vinegar, local raw honey, vanilla beans, clay powder and I've even snagged some great garage farm antique sale items when Barb redecorated.

Lots of gluten-free goodies, too.

Wok Box879 Marine Drive, #640, North Vancouver
Don't waste your dollars
By cyberspace of vancouver (89 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, February 23, 2014 - 8:18am [Dine in]

It was snowing so we wanted a quick meal and I felt like some noodles. Went to the Wok box as we were in the area. Ordered 2 boxes and the portion was very small. Also the taste was not that great. You could have gone to a Chinese restaurant and got a much better meal for half the price. We also won some spring rolls as part of our fortune cookie. So we tried the springs rolls as they tasted like they were from Costco. Nothing special here. Will not go back and way overpriced as to what you get. Service was good and clean place.

great service and food
By piggyrh of North Van (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - 10:13pm [Dine in]

My boyfriend and I have tried this place for about 10 times now.
The food was always great. I love their special rolls, esp. the popcorn roll and the fantastic roll.
Their portions are big and the price is very reasonable, about $20-25 dollars btn the two of us.
The waitresses were all very nice and kind.
When the place is packed, the food tends to be a bit slow but i think it's worth it!

Andreas Restaurant153 16th Street West, North Vancouver
Its Andrea's
By cheezewiz of North Van (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - 6:17pm [Dine in]

It's been a while (almost 10 years) since I have lived in Nvan, and we used to go to Andrea's a lot. As I couldn't remember the address, I had to google it. Thats when I though I should see what the reviews have been like. Some mentioned "Marginal Service", slow service, etc. I can say that our Lunch yesterday was fantastic. Service was above Par. And the food, mmm, just as I remembered it. Ordered a Lg. Hot and Spicy Pizza, and our other guest had the Alfredo. Seriously, they make the best Pizza, and as I finished the last quarter of Alfredo, it was also fantastic. Prices are great. I don't know if the previous commenters 'comments' have/were taken into consideration/applied, but I have no qualms referring Andrea's. In fact, I'm looking forward to my next meal there (as I'm living back in Nvan)

Crispy Poulet950 Marine Dr, North Vancouver

By Sunbird of Vancouver (downtown) (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, January 27, 2014 - 10:53pm [Dine in]

Crispy is in new location across Capilano Mall on Marine drive, North Vancouver.
Below expectation customer service, the gentleman who seems to be owner is grumpy, check your bill he will charge you more, if you catch him, he will say " oh our menu is old and price is changed", he rip you off if you don't ask for a a copy of your bill.

Quality f food is below average, better than MD and much lower than 5Gs.
Price: over priced, a burger $7 (shows $6 in menu) a hot dog $9(shows $7 in Menu),

you can get a full meal in other persian restaurants for $9.00

Living in North Vancouver I have already tried their food many times over. However, I was quite impressed after visiting the Vancouver location on my way to work. They provide very consistent high quality service at both their locations. Truly the best pizza and Indian food takeout money can buy.

Yuko Maki1540 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
A reasonable review...
By Ilovefoodnvan of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - 7:45pm [Dine in]

These past reviews are pretty unfair to this place. For an overall sushi value comparing quality and price, no place can beat Yuko Maki. They have the largest and best sashimi pieces on North Vancouver out of the dozens of places I have tried. There boxes are way better and cheaper then every other place as well. The quality of all the food and rolls are really great. The place is also very clean.

Yes the service can sometimes be not very good when you go and sit down. Don't like it? Get Takeout. This restaurant gets super busy because it is so popular. They definitely do need to work on their service and staff some more employees but it wont stop me from coming. What I don't understand is why do people expect to go to YukoMaki and pay $6.50 for a box and expect service quality like a steakhouse? Go to the keg if you want high service. You are paying under $8 for a meal or combo here, take this place for what it is, the best value and cheap place to get some great sushi.

Pizza Hut906 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
Awful, disgusting, gross!!
By Mr. Ralph of North Vancouver, B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, January 10, 2014 - 11:14pm [Delivery]

After ordering from pretty much every single other pizza place in the area (all of which are good or at least decent in their own way), we decided to order from Pizza Hut on Marine Dr for a change. What a mistake. Pizza was extremely soggy - crust was basically wet.. kind of like trying to eat a wet dish sponge - we threw 80% of it into the garbage, because we could not eat it. We also ordered wings, which were even more disgusting - flavourless, and also soggy. Does this place soak all of their food in dishwater before they send it out? These also went in the garbage, because they were not edible. This place is not even cheap. Basically, we threw $40 worth of their disgusting so-called food into the trash. What a waste. Stay AWAY from this place!! Many, many, many better options available to you.

Nando's Chicken1301 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Pushy Clerk behind the Counter - do they work on Commission?
By Sundown of North Vancouver (41 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 25, 2013 - 4:48pm [Dine in]

First time here didn't know what to expect (except for what I read on the website). The girl behind the counter was very pushy in first trying to sell us a whole chicken for dinner, we said no, too much food. My partner asked for the 1/4 chicken (drumstick/thigh) with a side over of caesar salad - the girl was pushy asking 3 times if he was sure he didn't want two 1/4 pieces, he said no (he can't eat half a chicken himself) she still pushed it.....do they work on commission for this girl to be so pushy in trying to sell more than what we want or could eat? I asked where they kept the condiments and straws - she didn't answer, maybe she didn't hear my my partner asked - he was ignored, he asked again, again he was ignored. Next she was busy trying to push beer onto us instead of pop - they must work on a commission, at least that's how she behaved.

We picked a table. The server was much more pleasant - friendly and attentive. The 1/4 chicken and caesar was delicious. My chicken sandwich and peri peri fries were also delicious. If the service was better we would go back, but because of such a horrible disappointment with such a money hungry pushy clerk behind the counter, I will wait a few years (if ever) in hopes of their staff learning more about better customer service.

Fishworks Restaurant91 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Great Christmas Eve Family Dinner
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - 9:46pm [Dine in]

We chose Fishworks for a Christmas Eve family dinner with our sons and made reservations for 6pm. It’s a cosy little restaurant, with a display of fresh oysters on ice as you walk in the door, nicely decorated in muted tones and decor. Wait staff seated us promptly and were efficient and personable, neither too intrusive nor too distant for requests during our meal. By the time we left at 7:30 the restaurant was packed.

We ordered 4 of their Parallel 49 Ugly Sweater stouts which were rich, sweet, creamy dark milk stouts, a nice start while we perused the menu. Starters were a half-dozen freshly shucked oysters for me, crab cakes with a wasabi aioli for the wife, and crispy curry squid with cucumber raita and salmon Carpaccio with a garlic-ginger sauce for the boys. Each was delicious and forks were passed around the table to share the different tastes.

Mains were Haida Gwaii lingcod with a spicy and crispy seared skin; grilled prawn linguine carbonara with a raw egg in the middle for stirring into the hot pasta; a lovely seafood paella; and halibut poutine (seriously). All the starters and mains were excellent, very creative, rich and elegantly presented and some of the paella and carbonara came home with us in doggy boxes. We were too full to entertain dessert. Total tab was $208 including tip for four. Not cheap eats but an excellent special occasion dinner spot that we thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend.

Renos complete! Huge improvement! Great sushi!
By Palate1 of Vancouver, B.C, Canada (3 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 5:00pm [Dine in]

Feeling obligated to update. Same "new" owners but a "new and better" restaurant for sure! This restaurant was closed for a while for renovations and recently reopened. We had to check it out. The entrace is now off of Lonsdale. The dining room is completely open, spacious, bright, and new. Many big screen TVs have been added --great because the hockey game was on. The menu has some new options. Plates, cups, glasses, etc. were all clean and new. The prices went up a tiny bit (25-50 ¢) but the quality, quantity, and presentation of the food was great! It is on a different level now -- such an improvement! The fellow who served us was great and our food arrived freshly-made in a timely manner. Our tea and water was topped up regularly and empty plates were removed promptly. My partner loved the fried calamari! All the rolls were fresh and tasty. The sashimi was fresh and portions were generous. We were so full and completely satisfied when we left. Hope they keep this up! Glad we can count again on Sushi Katsu as our local "go-to" sushi place! If you liked it before, you will love it now!

Last week I attended a fundraiser in the banquet room at the Eagles to raise money for a family friend fighting cancer. As the organizers are members if the eagles the eagles agreed to give 10% of the bar sales to the fundraiser. Now one week later they will not give the funds to the cause. If this is how the eagles are going to act I will no longer be supporting this business.

Pho Saigon128 East 14th Street, North Vancouver
Hot Pho
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, November 29, 2013 - 6:35pm [Dine in]

When we first walked in, the Pho Saigon reminded of a diner; brightly lit, spartan tables and furnishings and very neat and clean. And the instrumental elevator muzak playing in the background kind of grew on me as we ate (from disco to russian symphonies). We were in search of a good bowl of beef pho on a cold winter evening and the Siagon sounded like the rght place to be.

We ordered 2 large bowls of beef noodle pho with eye of round and well-done flank steak. Glasses of hot weak tea came out first to warm our hands. The bowls came out steaming with a mound of rice noodles and sliced beef in the middle, swimming in broth with diced green onions, with a side of bean sprouts, lime wedges, sliced chillis and sprigs of fresh thai basil for dressing.

I'm no expert on pho but it was a great bowl of beef noodle soup; the eye of round was very tender and very rare until stirred into the hot tasty broth. The flank steak was a bit chewy so I'd probably stick with the eye of round next time. And there will be a next time I'm sure. Damage was $20 with a tip.

Embarrassing
By ScottBrown of North Vancouver (1 Review)

It was my go-to place on Sunday for watching football. I was there five Sundays in a row. But on Grey Cup Sunday, I was refused service because I was wearing boots (hiking boots) and canvass pants.
I guess I was red flagged as "working class."
It was a Sunday afternoon and I wanted to watch football. Apparently, I didn't pass their eyeball test and was sent away.
It was embarrassing.
They'd rather sit half-empty than serve me.
Nice job alienating a new regular customer.

There's a reason why half of the people drinking coffee at the Starbucks next door are eating Harmony donuts - they're just plain good.

These are the real deal - honest to god proper donuts, cooked up in a deep fryer right before your eyes. Those horrid prebaked Tim Hortons things pale in comparison. Real nuts, and sprinkles, and icing......

Seriously, buy a dozen assorted donuts from Harmony and there's no way you'll ever darken Timmy's doors again.

Lynn Valley has no shortage of pizza joints, and they're all pretty dull and corporate.

That's why we drive the other direction and get our pizza from DJJ's. It's about the best pizza you'll find on the North Shore, and FAR FAR superior to the chain pizza that you'll get around Lynn Valley.

Love it!

Great for Drinks and Appetisers
By Appalbarry of north vancouver BC (3 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, November 22, 2013 - 6:52pm [Dine in]

We love the neighbourhood feel of this place, and the mix of clientèle. It's our go-to place for drinks and a light nosh in the early evening - the appetisers are excellent.

Strangely the one time that we went for a full dinner we were less impressed. Somehow the full entrees just weren't as amazingly yummy as the starters.

Still though, this place is a gem, a hidden treasure if you will, and we'll recommend it highly.
