Cardero's1583 Coal Harbour Quay, Vancouver
Very disappointing.
Submitted Monday, September 10, 2012 - 1:02pm [Dine in]

Having been to a lot of restaurants in Vancouver, Cardero's left us very disappointed when it comes to quality of their service. Very strange and inconvenient seating system (you have to wait for a bell and a flag in the air when your table is ready) is one thing. Confused hostesses and less than happy waiters is yet another. Food was alright and so was the patio view, but everything else was highly disappointing. Not coming back.

Poor service

Went there on a Saturday night. For us, it all boiled to down to their service. Overly sensitive, and rather inattentive servers and hostesses. It didn't smell nice in there too, for some reason and reminded us of some school cafeteria rather than a downtown restaurant.
Go there at your own risk to spoil the evening.

Great ambiance, but...
Submitted Saturday, October 18, 2008 - 2:58pm [Dine in]

This place is very modern, yet cozy, and has a lovely ambiance to it. Definitely would go back there. The only complaint is the size of the portions... Tapas were tasty, but tiny, and so you have to order again and again if you are hungry (then it ends up costing $$$). Overall, very nice place though.

Very, very pleased.

Went there after reading all the good reviews.
Very good and tasty food. I love sashimi and my craving for it was more than satisfied. Large portions, good prices, and we didn't have any wait at all. Nice presentation of sushi rolls, and all the ingredients were very fresh. Definitely a new favorite restaurant.

Very good Thai food!
Submitted Tuesday, January 22, 2008 - 2:46pm [Dine in]

Went there a few times, and the food there is always great. A very extensive menu will make you want to order a lot of items, as all of them are delicious. A lot of variety for seafood lovers, and their curry prawns and coconut rice are to die for.
Overall, love this place.

Cannery Seafood House, The2205 Commissioner Street, Vancouver
It is not quite as great.
Submitted Tuesday, January 22, 2008 - 2:41pm [Dine in]

Went there to try out Dine Out /08 menu, and it was overall just ok. Very beautiful view indeed, so it would be good for a romantic dinner where people are more into each other than food, lol.
Food was presented very nicely, but portions are rather tiny. Seafood salad was nothing that we hoped it would be, barely any greens, 1 prawn, and maybe 3-4 small mussels. Lemon bean soup was good though.
Salmon Wellington was also really nice, but nothing special. Same dish you can find in majority of restaurants in Vancouver. Lamb sirloin was just ok. It was paired with too many sweet peppers on a thin patty.

Prices for regular menu were very expensive, and I don't think they are justified for what you get.

An interesting sashimi?
Submitted Wednesday, September 12, 2007 - 7:32pm [Dine in]

I have been to this place for the first time, and it was not bad at all. Their Miso soup is very good, and so is B.C Sushi with fried salmon.
However, salmon sashimi was rather weird. It consisted of small 7 pieces, and the grade of salmon was definitely not that of sashimi. Salmon was too lean and dry, not the fatty kind served in a higher grade Japanese places.

Prices were O.K., but not on the cheap side. These 3 items came to 17$. Not sure if I will be back.

Very good!

Me and my bf decided to check out this little hidden place and were not disappointed. Unlike many Japanese restaurants, this one has a fast service, although they did forget to bring one of the items that we've ordered.

Sahsimi, miso soup, and sushi rolls were all excellent. Very fresh, generous, and tasty. Will definitely go back.

Bay Sushi Cafe678 Seymour Street, Vancouver
Very mixed feeling
Submitted Tuesday, August 28, 2007 - 2:05pm [Dine in]

Went there for lunch, got chicken bento and some assorted sushi with miso soup. All food was pleasant, and pretty much standard when compared to the regular Japanese food joints. I wanted to order sashimi but after seeing how small and thin they are I decided to skip.

BUT:

I was waiting for my order about 18 minutes, and other people were complaining about them taking at least half an hour to complete an order. So if you want to go there for a sort lunch, go else where.
While I was waiting I was able to see all their kitchen and cooking since it is an open kitchen concept. This is where I knew I would not be coming back again.

1. The whole staff in the kitchen looked like it was their first day in this restaurant. Cooks were reading "stickies" and notes with regulations in the kitchen. Line cooks were all very inexperienced, and took extremely long to put all the dishes together.

2. They have a conveyor system of preparation, where all of their cooks touch your dish before it is put together.
It seriously grossed me out.
Chicken, prawns, sushi, and the rest were all handled by different people with their bare hands numerous times. I was thinking about leaving at that point.

3. By the time all those cooks put the dish together it is already luke warm.

Bottom line: Regular Japanese food. Skinny sashimi. Very long service, and big gross factor on handling the food.

Didn't really like it
Submitted Thursday, August 23, 2007 - 11:17am [Dine in]

After reading all the good reviews on this site, we decided to try this place out. There was no line up on the week day, so it was good. Self-order at the cash register didn't impress us, however.

After trying our all time favorites in Japanese food, we didn't find anything special about the way they make sushi or even Miso soup. We even barely finished sashimi, even though it is our favorite dish.

It is alright
Submitted Monday, July 16, 2007 - 2:07pm [Dine in]

This place is good when you are really hungry for Japanese food and don't want to spend loads of money on higher end cuisine.
Excellent selection of all-you-can-eat items on the menu, price is good too. Although very varied, the food could be a bit fresher though. Ambiance is casual, and not for a romantic date. Service is suffering too.

More hype than anything.
Submitted Monday, July 16, 2007 - 1:59pm [Dine in]

Went there twice, and definitely not going there anymore. The wait line is horrible, the service is absent, and the ambiance is very basic casual. The food is good, but not the freshest I have tried for the same price range. I have no idea where all the hype about this place came from.

Very good casual lunch.
Submitted Monday, July 16, 2007 - 1:55pm [Dine in]

I was pleasantly surprised with the freshness of all food, and even though it is a very busy place at lunch time, the long line up still made it worth it.
Good selection of lunch boxes. The best thing is the really fresh taste.
