Ate on a Saturday evening, sat at the bar and despite the bartender being super busy he looked after me really well. God humoured, and attentive. The ambience was sometimes loud - it is a pub so this is expected. Food king crab legs very tasty. Overall a very satisfyingly experience.

Matteo's Gelato2615 Mary Hill Road, Port Coquitlam
Best Service EVER!

Submitted Thursday, February 13, 2014 - 6:22pm [Dine in]

Not only do they have the best gelato I have ever had but the service is spectacular. My young daughter forgot her wallet at Matteos, full of her birthday money and no ID. It was a few weeks before we noticed it missing and when I called they said they still had it. I zipped in and got it but it was when I returned home that I noticed they had put a coupon on the inside for a free gelato, a shiny new pen, and a few Matteo Buck coupons. My 8 year old was thrilled as was I. I will continue to tell everyone I know that the food is delicious but the service is what keeps bringing me back.

Very surprised

Submitted Saturday, November 30, 2013 - 7:14pm [Take-out]

I am not usually one to complain about food I order, as it happens today I have a full house. I did not want to cook so naturally I order pizza. When I arrived at home to feed my guests I realize there are two wrong pizzas and I give the place a call. The man on the other end of the phone proceeds to tell me what I ordered and tell me this is what I have been given. I am getting a bit upset and ask to speak with a manager and the man tells me he is the owner. I explain to him that I have been a good customer over the past while and I could not believe how rude he was being. The man responds to me by saying this is the nature of the business and he looses and gains customers every day. I guess the moral of the story here is we as the customer don't madder and don't expect good service once he has your money.

Came back in January. Their all you can eat menu was 12$ per person and the quantities where big.

Now in September we came and the all you can eat Menu is 20$ and the quantities are small. we ordered a fair amount of food. and the server wondered if we were able to finish the food and bugged us 3 times about leaving food in the plate and the policy of being charged. they forced us to finish the rice

worst service ever.

The Sushimi was small. the food was not cooked properly

sorry hate not to leave a bad review - wished it was great - the place is great looking - but not what i excpected

Burnt Thai pad sauce
By magnum123 of Coquitlam, BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, September 16, 2013 - 11:42pm [Dine in]

Dined In. The food was good except for the prawn pad Thai. It had a burnt taste to it which made it impossible to eat. We told our server (the owner) of the burnt flavour and the extreme bitterness and she kindly replaced it.

Prawn pad Thai #2 was just as bad as the first! Burnt flavour and so bitter we could not eat it. We brought it to the owners attention once again but she insisted that is how it is.

My family and I have eaten there many many times and prawns pad thai is always On our list of items we order. We are familiar with this dish and fully know this items sauce, or frying pan it was prepared in, was burnt and burned.

We gave it back uneaten but we were still charged half price as we were told it was not there mistake.

REALLY ! burnt food is the customers mistake???

Poor Customer Service

Submitted Saturday, August 31, 2013 - 6:54pm [Dine in]

"Nothing but love"? Unless you have some issues with your bill or payment and you're there on a Saturday night.... the owner/manager won't even help you because he is too intoxicated to handle the situation! And don't even try talking to him because he will disrespect you and raise his voice!
I was even ignored by the hostess at the door when I walked in, not to even mention one of the waitresses complaining she hated working there!
This place needs some serious adjustment on customer service!!!

I have been going to this place on and off for years. More off than on and it looks like I'm not the only one. They used to have line ups on Friday night - sadly their "security chain" is no longer needed. The food gets WORSE year after year and management obviously does not care. I remember the days of line ups out the door for their buffet brunches with all you could eat cracked crab.

Friday night at 7 pm - lots of space on the patio. Lousy, slow waitress with no customer intuition. Beer cold. Caesars were basic - I make better at home. Food was just food service bagged garbage ordered from a supply company and deep fried. No chef or cooking skills required. Chicken strips were grocery store quality. Fries were SOGGY. The whole night was basically a waste of money. I have relatives coming from Europe and it's a safe bet to say I'd be embarrassed to call this place my "local". I won't be back. Oh and it was then only 1/4 full when we left at 8:30 on a sunny Friday night of a long weekend and it's situated on the water. Pretty telling.

Horrible

We disliked this place the first time, but figured maybe they were just having an off night. After a second attempt, they are:

Overpriced menu
Rude staff
Loooooong wait for overcooked garbage food

Live close by but will never go back.
We walked around and waited to sit and were told the table was reserved...there were a couple other tables open. After about 10 minutes, we were seated at the table we were originally going to sit at. We waited almost 20 minutes just for water!!!

My husband and I just had a very enjoyable dinner at Orrange. Very trendy restaurant in Port Coquitlam which made me forget that we were right beside Costco. We ordered a little bit of everything. We shared the Chinese takeout - fabulous, bang bang beans (which we ended up taking home as we had too much food), quinoa salad (a meal in itself) and the tortilla soup. I felt that the menu had enough variety for everyone. Okay people this is not White Spot or Dennys but a classy, well priced, fantastic restaurant that we will definitely be coming back to. I think next time I will just order the salad alone as I am so full. Kim (our wait person) was fantastic and attentive. All this food plus a ceasar and tea came to $52.00. Can't wait for the fall to see the fireplace going outside.

Chicken Pickens
By RHA of Port Coquitlam (4 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, June 29, 2013 - 12:45pm [Take-out]

My lunch experience today was not of memories as a kid having the Chicken Pickens. They were running the ads on TV and I called in an order for pick up. First off no cutlery or napkins or crackers and I ordered clam chowder soup, I am glad I was not going to a park or a picnic. The fries were cold and the chicken yet juicy was covered in what I can only describe as doughy pancake batter, it was absolutely disgusting. This can't be same thing I used to love as a kid, I know they advertise for a limited time only but after my experience... times up.

Combo's

I have eaten here dozens of times and I thought I should give it its due. Their combo dinners for one is usually what I get . Their standard chicken chow mein is the best I have ever had! Fresh noodles bean sprouts and lots of chunks of chicken, the breaded almond chicken that comes in this combo is unreal, super thick chicken breast that is the whole piece of breast (not cut paper thin) with the perfect batter to accompany it. This combo also comes with large size deep fried prawns (5) which are only ok the batter is a little too much for even these large prawns, I usually just tear off part of the batter to balance it out. Their won ton soup is above average and they give you a 3 piece bowl with your combo. All in all the combo 1c is very satisfying.

That's what the drive through here is. Of the last 5 times we've been there the order was NEVER right. Tonight - a coke, a diet coke and a coke zero was a coke, and two root beers. The happy meal with small fries subbed for mini fries and a yogurt took over 5 mintues at the order window to organize(?) and then was still just the mini fries and yogurt.

A filet o fish magically became a McChicken and teh happy meal had no toy.

Surprise!

fusion is fun - Why bother with the all you can eats?
By Foodfor2 of Vancouver (22 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 12:12pm [Dine in]

We've been three times to this restaurant so I'll keep most of my comments to the most recent evening out. We've decided not to go to the all you can eat restaurants in the Tri Cities anymore as this place ends up being the same price for much better quality food that's amazingly presented. We order separately but eat off of each others plates so we end up having lots of different items.

We're greeted warmly upon entering every time. The place has quite a few neat things to look at if you like vintage items. Service is fine especially since this last time, the server didn't yell out our orders so that the whole restaurant could hear like the other server had done on our previous nights out to this place. It's a small place, but this is my one peeve about this place.

Yes, they don't have nigri sushi, but big deal you can get that anywhere. What they do have is beautifully presented fusion rolls that no one else around does have. This time out we had gomae, miso soup, super shelter roll, snoopy roll and gyoza. I can't say enough about how well they do on the presentation of the food items with lots of fruit garnishes. I did have the tagine one time here and found it bland, but every other item I've had has been delicious. They also give you suckers at the end in a small vase, which even though we're not with kids is very cute.

Great value. I usually go here once a week. Only complaint is that the food can be bland. They need to offer some sort of sauce with the rice (Even a small dip size order of yogurt or hummus). No other complaints. I am very satisfied with my meal but I'm thinking of buying hummus from IGA and bring it in myself lol.

After dining at SS101 for the past few years, I always find myself coming back here. I love sushi and Japanese food, so I always try new places. Every time, I find myself always choosing SS101 over any sushi place. It is in a perfect location. A hidden gem in Port Coquitlam. The service is great, the servers are young but they are professional and attentive and kind. The chef is amazing - great presentation, flavours and overall quality. I have been here so many times and I have never left feeling disappointed! I would recommend any dish with their spic sauce. All of their sauces are made in house - and their spicy sauce is my favourite (I usually opt out of spicy food)! I will always recommend SS101 to my friends and family!

This place is so loud the noise of people's conversations is louder than the TV's or music! You cannot talk to a person at your table without yelling. The menu is terrible. No suitable appetizers so we settled for wings and fries. (Vaporized vinegar on the fries--no big deal--very little difference to regular fries) The main course menu doesn't offer much either. Our group had the Beef Wellington, Yorkshire Beef Dip and the Angus Sirloin. All the food was good, but nothing to rush back for. When we got outside our ears were ringing. We won't be returning.

average different tasting dim sum
By pete66 of coquitlam (56 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, May 5, 2013 - 4:49pm [Dine in]

We came here for dim sum today for the first time. Its a small restaurant, not too many tables. Waited about 15 mins for a table for two. Sat down and it took awhile for someone to take our order. They don't have dim sum carts here so you just tell the waiter what you want. It seemed to take a long time to get our first dish which was deep fried shrimp spring roll. you get 4 halves of shrimp filling and something that looked like seaweed inside the roll. it came piping hot but was just average. We also had the pork siu mi which had some diced Chinese mushroom mixed in the pork filling and something which tasted like dried salted fish mixed in which we did not care for as regular pork dumpling usually just has shrimp or shrimp/pork inside. We didn't care for the piece of shrimp on top of it either. We also had the steamed black bean/garlic pork spareribs which were really average tasting and not authentic. The mini sticky rice (3) were a pretty decent size and tasted okay.. Overall the average price was about $4.25 per dish but due to the extremely slow service and weird taste/texture of the food, we will not return....

I don't get the reviews
By princess123 of New Westminster BC (135 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 7:39am [Dine in]

Really, I don't get it. I guess perhaps because this is a restaurant review site and maybe people are reviewing the food? The food was tolerable. The salmon and pasta were at least edible. The steak was like a shoe made into pot roast! It was NOT a steak. The dessert was ok but not memorable because I don't even remember. It couldn't be because of the drinks because despite having 4 I could not taste the alcohol nor did I even get a buzz. Big money to be made there. The worst was the appetizer. The description here says "taco chips and salsa". It wasn't even TORTILLA chips and salsa it was one of those nasty anti pasta plates or whatever, with processed meat and cheese. My vegan friend was not impressed as she thought she could at least eat the "taco" chips. Most people just sent the plate back untouched

But, the reason you go I guess is for the show. So, don't bother at all. No one in my group found in remotely funny. Nor did most of the audience who tried to chuckle politely or uncomfortably? The show, while the staff had some musical talent, had no taste, or class to the point of being gross. I just spent the whole night waiting for it to be over. I would much rather take my $100 plus (per person!) with drinks and "tip" and go to a nice club downtown and listen to good music or see good improv. This is not it.
