Fantastic quality for a fair price. Definitely not the cheapest sushi i've ever had however its worth every penny. This is the best sushi I have found east of Vancouver. I feel fortunate that it is so close to my home.
The Chefs seem to have a very good understanding of flavours and have incredible palettes. All the specialty rolls have fantastics ratios of ingredients that play off of one another and really do leave you with a wonderful experience.
The service is always friendly and attentive. sometimes there is a bit of a language barrier but that is easy to over come with some patients and a positive attitude.

Very good first time experience. Nice clean local location, easy access on way home from transit. Pizza's were done in 12 minutes, Id say its about standard issue price as far as pizza goes. Ingredients were fresh and abundant. Pizza was not greasy at all. One of the better non-franchise take out places i've come across. I hope they continue to keep up there high quality standards.
We have been to the firehall bistro about 5 or six times and every time we have been we have had amazing food, drink and service. No matter what we chose the pairings are second to none. We always have three courses and a bottle of wine and go with any selection advised because each time we do it more than exceeds expectations. Earls prices for waaaaaay better service, quality and overall experience. I would recommend to anyone.
I was surprised to see this new pizzeria opened locally but was deeply disappointed when it took more than 25 min to get 2 large pizzas that had sparse toppings that were unevenly distributed and a chewy cardboard thin crust and cost just over $40, I wont be back soon.
these guys make their own dough, sauces, and toppings,marinate their chicken,slow cook the ribs make their own BBQ sauce,new york style pretzels,and in housemade cookies
did i mention the NACHO'S 12in platter toped of with beef or chicken
try them you will not be disappointed
fast efficient service with resonable prices
phone ahead if you are on the west coast express going home
it's an easy pick-up just around the corner
This place has the best fish & chips that I've ever tasted. I've tried fish & chips from different countries and cities but this one is simply the best. the fish was light and fresh, the tarter sauce was very creamy and very tasty. I would recommend anyone searching for good place to eat fish & chips. The service was excellent; the only thing is the ambiance which is typical fish & chips place similar to British.
Husband and I went for dinner after finding it on another review site. Wow we loved it. My husband had the cesar salad and paella, I had the buttermilk salad and roasted chicken. Salads were really well prepared and every thing was freshly prepared. My husband is a true cesar aficionado and he loved it. I enjoyed the buttermilk dressing with the bits of blue cheese on my crispy salad of lettuce and pear. The hot fresh bread was perfect for scooping up all the bits. Our entrees arrived hot and prefect as well. My husband truly enjoyed the really fresh seafood in the paella and I just loved the risotto along with the perfectly crispy skinned chicken breast. we finished up with coffee and a shared dessert of pear and apple strudel with butter ripple ice cream.
One of our servers really went out of his way to explain the menu and chat with us, but I felt was overshadowed by times we were just sitting waiting for things like the check which is why I would give them a solid for service but not outstanding.
Overall prices are completely reasonable for the level of food and service which is again solid. we have found a new favorite and I look forward to going back and finding some of the other specials mentioned in other reviews
It's pretty good food here. What makes us order food from here more often is that they load up the dish with vegetables instead of just starch like rice or noodles. Lots of flavour and fresh ingredients. We will still order from here in the future. Value wise, I am used to take out orders being a little larger than this for the price. Service is prompt.
When we just moved into the neighbourhood we got pizza from here to give to our moving helpers. We had a meat pizza and were all really sick after eating from here. It was take out so it's not like I have bad experiences to report but I think they need to watch their food preparation. If it wasn't for the incident of getting sick; it's just pizza. There was nothing great, nothing bad about it taste wise.
We heard about this restaurant from a couple friends and decided to try it out. A very small menu but the food was so well structured. My husband had the jambalaya and I had the dinner feature which was rabbit. Both were cooked to perfection. They have a decent wine list for selection and the prices are reasonable for fine dining. We will definitely return here.
Every time we come to Boston pizza we receive the WORST service. It takes 45 minutes to get our appetizer, an appetizer they forgot to punch in. After receiving a rush order on our cactus cut potatoes we got our dinner right away. Who wants to eat their dinner immediately after their appi? Utter nonsense. For dinner I ordered the Jalepeno and onion straw burger and my friend ordered the "pesto" chicken pasta. Firstly, there was nothing pesto about it! They threw some tasteless herbs on the pasta and called it "pesto". Even after adding lots of salt, chili flakes and Parmesan cheese it didn't taste any better. SUPER bland! For my jalepeno burger. I asked for no tomato, onion straws and extra pickles. When I got it there were no jalepenos and they put onion straws on the burger and the patty was not fresh. You could tell it was a premade frozen party (not very appetizing!). And the end the waitress let us know they discounted our bill. When I looked they took off $4.82. How pointless. I have honestly never had such bad service or experience at any other location than at this location! I would NOT recommended it to anyone.
P.s the last time we went there, there was hair in our nachos. We pointed it out to the waitress, without saying anything she took the nachos away. The manager approached us and said "I heard there was a hair in ur nachos, do you want me to bring you some more?" When we said no, she walked away without saying anything and didn't come back up to us. We were confused if we had to pay so we just walked out. BAD experience.
POOR POOR POOR POOR oh my goodness poor EVERYTHING!!!!
Sincerely a Pitt Meadows Resident!
Okay food at Boston Pizza if you get the lunch special for $10. But I wouldn't pay more or pay for more than that.
I came here back in July and had the Rib + Dark Meat Chicken w/ Combo for $22 post-tax and it was bad/terrible and certainly not worth $22. The seats were decent.
One of the worst experiences I have ever had with McDonalds, Its a shame for the brand to have a location here. I ordered 4 items thru drive thru and when I was greeted at the window for payment, I was told they pressed the order button too early so I had to reorder. And when I walked in to order there were so many flies hanging around the kitchen area. And the rude reply from Sara who claimed to be the manager of the Store. Sorry this place is creating a bad reputation for mcDonalds, I would rather drive to the PoCo one near Costco.
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
Dined there May 31 for an early dinner, shared fresh prawn appitizer very good and fresh. then CocoVIn and Pamigian with noodles. If you are looking for big portions go to a buffet and stuff yourself. This place serves perfectly prepared food, hot and fresh in portions that satisfy not stuff you. You probably won't take home a "doggie" bag but you will have enough especially if you have desert.. The place is a family operation and we have always had great service every time we go there. As for some of the other reviews that found fault 1: the sign on the awning is changed,
2:they now serve cocktails
3: the wine list is small but well selected (we had a New Zealand Merlot that was very good
4: the specials are many and the prices were quoted during the listing. They are not specials price wise but freshness wise and are worth ordering.
The only thing lacking is a bit of ambiance but the owners are chefs and not tradesman. The stone work around the fire place is rough at best and the yellow wall needs painting and maybe a picture or two.The bones are there just not the finish. A minor detraction, when the food arrives the ambiance is soon forgotten.
Price wise it is not cheap. With wine, a shared appy and two entres the bill before tax was about $90 and with taxes and tip just under $120. Skip the bottle of wine ( get a glass instead) and it;'s a reasonable night out for about the price of a dinner at Boston Pizza but in a nice, quiet setting.
It was sad to see that the customers don't dress better these days to go to an upscale place
one chap in his plaid Mac didn't even bother to take his ball cap off during dinner I guess I am showing my age.
Five Star Food, Flawless Technique, Favorite Date Night Spot
This restaurant has become a date night favorite, the place we sneak out to once the baby’s asleep & us time begins. Need to celebrate? Go to Firehall. Out of town guest? Firehall. Father’s Day for a Foodie Father – Firehall.
Firehall Bistro is that restaurant everyone wishes they had close to their home, but it never really exists. A candle on every table, gentle music, and sophisticated food on a shoestring budget.
Think first catch of the season halibut pan seared atop a crab & fresh English pea risotto. Or homemade linguini with local soft shell rock lobster tail. Onion & gruyere tart with a pear/nut salad. Or butternut squash bisque with crab vignettes. Their 28 day aged rib eye will certainly make your mouth water.
The food is refined, but honest. Each plate while complex, is sincere and rustic.
The Chef/Owner is gifted when it comes to pairing, creating, and giving you an experience you will return for again & again.
I've ordered from this place often. Sometimes I'll get really good quality, other times I get really lazy crappy pizza. One of the only places that delivers to my place, their service sucks. They take forever to deliver pizza, when I get it it's cold. The place is only 10mins away. I think it matters what time of the day you get your order in, and who is working. If the boss is around then the pizza is good, otherwise it sucks. I won't be ordering from Albion again. I've given you too much of my money and too many chances. You Fail!
Too bad this restaurant does not seem to have its own website; it was rather difficult to expect from this restaurant after reading good reviews online. This review is based on dinner service for two people.
Situated in business/downtown area of Pitt Meadow, it was quite easy to find the place, just off Harris Road, although the street sign says 122 Ave, not 122A Avenue.
Food: One of the best tasting French bistro style food in Greater Vancouver. First you get a complimentary small place of fried wonton and tapanade with a dip. While they are good, I would prefer regular bread service. Next, ceasar salad is served with slightly charred romaine lettuce, light dressing and some really high quality smoked bacon. They have other usual appetizers such as fried coconut prawns, house salad, cold cut platter, lobster bisque.. etc.. The entrees were equally nice, tarragon chicken breast with truffle risotto and vegetarian ravioli. The risotto was truly amazing in terms of texture of the rice and the aroma from truffle oil. The creamy sauce for the ravioli was decadent while being not too heavy. Other options are rib eye steak, chicken pasta, halibut, etc. Desserts are good (definitely above average), but not as good as the salads and entrees, which are 5 stars, It is very typical of small bistros who rarely have a pastry chef, although I am not sure if this place does. The menu seems to change quite frequently.Portions were reasonable, slightly small. Definitely not generous; I would definitely need all appy, entree and dessert to get full. I just wished there was 10~15% more food, couple more bites..
Ambiance: typical bistro setting: dim, simple, inviting, and warm. Can even be romantic if you sit right next to the fireplace. But there seems to be very limited space in the kitchen. Some corners of diningroom and bar area are used as cool and dry storage.
Value: Appetizers range from $8 to $11, entrees $17 to $27, and dessert $8 to $11. A la carte pricing is reasonable, although desserts are a bit aggresively priced. It would be very nice to see a three-course option in $29 to $34 price range, which I see a lot in Vancouver.
This would be a very nice restaurant for Pitt Meadow and Maple Ridge residents. During my visit, I spent $68 (for 1 app, 2 entree, 2 desserts) before taxes and tips. I thought that was a bit expensive, being spoiled by so many great deals in Vancouver due to competition. I can easily get a good quality three course dinner for $29 at a bistro setting in Vancouver. Sounds bad?? But at Firehall Bistro, you get a great quality (instead of good) three course dinner for $35~40 (that's why I wished there was 15% more food). In addition, the restaurant is clean, kitchen is clean, and all cooks and chefs are dressed properly. So pricing-wise, this restaurant sits somewhere between bistro and upcaled/fine dining with great quality food, rightfully and strongly. Will go back. The lunch menu seems to offer better deal.
We had heard of this restaurant and finally decided to give it a try. I won't lie when we saw the menu, we were a little bit surprised and taken aback at the prices but thought they were comparable to other larger restaurants in the area. When the food arrived we were stunningly amazed. The food was cooked to perfection and even my 10 year old was impressed. It was probably the best meal we've ever had! We all tried each others and there were no complaints from anyone. With a meal that good, we just had to have dessert! We were not disappointed. I have to recommend "The Cloud"! The quote on their flyer says it all, "expect the un-expected"! Will highly recommend this to friends and family. Thank you for a great night out!
I visit this restaruant once or twice a week - they have great food you can depend on with great service. With take out or dine in the service is always fast and friendly. Prices are reasonable with many options. You would be crazy to eat anywhere else in the area.
