Located at Pitt Meadows Golf Club, they offer stylish fine dining featuring locally sourced and organic cuisine. Over 100 wines with 10 available by the glass. Enjoy a window seat overlooking the local mountains or a spot on the patio.
A small group of us decided to stay and have dinner in the dining room at this golf club following a day long seminar one Friday. The room was fully booked at 6pm when we arrived, so the lovely Spanish manager sat us in the lounge where we had a glass of wine until they came and got us at 6:30pm.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience at this restaurant. Easily the most pleasant restaurant that side of the Pitt River Bridge. The complimentary amuse bouche of a fresh made spring roll was to die for. The appetizers were VERY positively reviewed by all us us, my Scallop c ourse alone was worth coming back for. The Lobster Ravioli was clearly home made, and one of our group commented that the Rack of Lamb was the best she had ever had, bar none.
For dessert, we decided to split a British Columbia cheese course and the selection of local cheeses was absolutely perfect.
The wine selections were superior to any restaurant that we have been to outside of downtown Vancouver, and the view was quite something. The prices were very reasonable for the quality delivered.
The only question that I had was why they don't advertise? Three of our group live in the area, and not one of us had ever been there for dinner previously. I assured to manager that that is about to change, and that we will be seeing them again very soon.
Nice decor. Lovely view. Warm and friendly service. Good wine list. Fair pricing. Food was above average across the board. Prawns, Bisque, Salad, Prime Rib, Char, Risotto all appreciated. Good bread. Good pre-appetizer. No desserts ordered.
Experience surpasses what you'd expect in the area, underwhelming appearance from the outside, nicer inside.
Overall, recommended. Comparable to an intermediate fine dining experience in the city.
It has been years and I mean years since we have visited this restaurant. Probably 8 or 9 years ago we were regulars but after a slow and steady slide in everything from food to service to cleanliness we just stopped going. In fact we were not even sure that they were still there until an aquantance mentioned they were there recently as that it was wonderful. We stopped in without a reservation and although they were fairly busy had no problem fitting us in after a several minute wait at the door waiting for someone to appear. Although the area of the building that the restaurant is located is the same we can't say much else is. Obviously the room has had an overhaul at some point because it is much nicer than we remembered it. Not ultra stylish but very nice for the suburbs.
Service was actually quite great with a ton of smiles throughout the night. Everything was professional and quick. It is not the type of restaurant where the servers sound like cooks the server struggled slightly with the pronunciation of some of the specials, but that was not a huge deal for us. It is Pitt Meadows after all.
The food was really quite spectacular however, much better than we expected. Dishes were well presented thoughtful and portioned just right. Seriously the restaurant that we new this place to be from the old days would not have had venison carpaccio or smoked mushroom risotto both of which were fantastic. We also had on that night a tomato and cheese salad that was very good as well as a simple prime rib that was out of this world. The wine list was slightly more extensive than need be in my opinion how many people out in that neck of the woods need over 100 wines spread over 4 pages to choose from but I guess if thats your thing you would appreciate it.
Prices were very fair for what you get not cheap but cheaper than many other places of an equal experience.
Now they seem like they are back from the dead we will go back for sure.
Mr. F. and I have been planning on visiting this restaurant for several months after having attended a wedding here in the spring. Im not sure why driving the 2km down the road put us off for 4 months but were glad we got over that.
Menu was a little more upscale than we were expecting for this neighbourhood which was fine by us. Venison carpaccio for me and a beautiful tomato salad for Mr. F. Both very nicely presented with a portion as you'd expect for such a place. My halibut was just right with some really nice jasmine rice (wish I could replicate that at home!) and the hubby had chicken which we were both surprised and pleased to see came from hopcott farms around the corner. Were regulars at hopcott and find their meats worth the extra price. His only comment was that the dried tomato didnt seem to add anything to the dish. Shared a creme brulee which was good. Shared a few neat mini bottles of champagne before dinner then a bottle of bc syrah. Quite a wine list but they divide up the wines in a unique way that makes navigating the list a little more managable.
The room is tucked away at the end of a hall in the upstairs of the golf clubhouse, and we had to manage our way through a throng of people attending another wedding, but the view was nice with a nice patio although it was too hot to sit outside on this particular night.
The server was great, paid good attention without being in our faces all night, and seemed like a genuine good guy. Room isn't exactly ultra modern, but nice for Pitt Meadows. The nice little touches like a small free appetizer and bread served with butter, olive oil AND balsamic vinegar were clever.
My boyfriend and I had dinner on the deck overlooking the golf course a recent Friday. If you can find a nicer view or more romantic setting in the Ridge Meadows Area, please email me and tell me where!!! We just heard you don't need to be a member to eat here, we had no idea.
I agree with a previous review, the building looks like a school (and not a pretty one), but if you can get by the look from the outside, you'll be glad you did. Parking was free, but a bit of a walk, they had a wedding going on so we had to trek from the far end of the lot ... oh well.
Had a great bottle of La Frenz Chardonnay from BC while we nibbled on bc scallops and fantastic homemade crab cakes. Entrees for us on this night were Ocean Wise (nice!) sable fish and steak with prawns. Both were excellent.
Complimentary appetizer (a real nice touch) was a great little prawn on a white spoon, first time we've ever experienced this out in this area.
We told our waitress right off the hop we were in no hurry, and the service was perfect for the occasion.
Prices were shockingly good for the quality, this is Vancouver quality food for much less than you'd spend in Vancouver. Our Sablefish was about $20, compared to about $35 when we had it at Blue Water in Yaletown, and it was better here.
Worth a repeat visit or 3.
I was nicely suprised to find this great restaurant tucked away at the Pitt Meadows golf club. Our server was knowlegable and attentive. After a nice complimentary amuse of onion jam on puff pastry with goat cheese, my wife had the seared scallops with bacon and creamed leeks with smoked tomato butter. They were divine, perfectly cooked and nicely presented. I had the crab cakes with celery heart salad and garlic aioli, very good indeed. We then had the rack of lamb and pan roasted chicken. Both were fantastic. We finished off a great evening with the lavender creme brulee and the chocolate pistachio pate for dessert. Both were made in house and a great way to end our meal. The wine list has a great selection of wines and the view is very nice too! Now that we know that this restaurant is here we will be comming back often.
Was here last Friday night to celebrate a birthday as we didn't want to go to another chain restaurant. From the outside, the building looked like a small town city hall, and as we entered climbing up the stairs under the fluorescent lights, we were contemplating turning around. Happy we didn't though. Found the dining room at the end of the hall and although the decor certainly wasn't contemporary, everything was clean and looked appropriate to celebrate a special occassion.
Service was prompt, professional and courteous with a smile.
Menu focussed on local ingredients and was creative. Similar to what would be expected downtown, but surprising for this area! Wine list was very good with a good emphasis on BC Wines.
We were brought an amuse bouche to start - this gorgeous smooth celery root bisque served in an espresso cup. Absolutely divine. For starters we had the crab cakes and the roasted scallops which we both found to be very tasty and cooked just right. We both had the prime rib with the yorkshire pudding. The meat was perfectly done (med rare for me and medium for him), and tender. The pudding was a little drier then usual, however gravy fixed it. Came also with roasted potatoes, grilled asparagus, carrot and cherry tomatoes.
We were too full for dessert, however a complementary slice of chocolate cake was brought out to celebrate the birthday. When the reservation was booked, a birthday was never mentioned, however the waitress was paying attention to the comment that was made when the orders where placed!
Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Food 9/10 Had the scallops and the wife had pork belly as appetizers and both were fantastic. Actually kind of cheap, I think they were both $8 which is really low for fine dining so we were expecting something mediocre but they were not by any means. For mains I had mushroom cannelloni and she had Hopcott Farms chicken with gnocchi. Agian top notch. Didn't have dessert just small points off as the bread clearly was not homemade although it was still good
Service 8/10 The girl who looked after us was great, polite and fun. Service just a little slow at times but understandable they were full
Value 7/10 Appetizers cheap, Mains about average for a fine dining place. Wine was fairly priced.
Ambiance 7/10 A beautiful view from the patio. They don't reserve patio tables they are first come first served which is a bit of a pain as we knew we wanted to sit out there on such a gorgeous night. They only have about 5 tables out there but thankfully one was open when we arrived
Nice place we"ll go back
