Chaise Lounge4444 Main St., Vancouver
Why hasn't this place been reviewed?

Chaise has been on Main for three months and not yet a review. I find that weird. It's in the old Wing Nuts location across from Nesters. This lower area of Main really needs a good restaurant. Found the menu kind of odd, any menu that has only twenty odd items but includes ceviche, poutine and nachos. It's like a mini Earls menu. But it is a "Lounge" so maybe that explains the menu. (it's not a lounge, it's a restaurant)

I really enjoyed my thick cut pork chop, with mustard butter. It was so incredibly tasty I could eat it night after night. I do not know if it would come so perfectly cooked again. I will be trying that pork chop again very soon, yum. My big pork chop came with pan fried cabbage with bacon, .....cabbage and big chunks of bacon? Good idea. And of course mashed potatoes. $13 for the meal. Hmm. Nice price.

The "Roast of Beast" the Sunday night special was ham and it also was super tasty. I tried the house red wine at $6 bucks a glass, could not really tell the taste because the glasses were so cold. But I drank two so....?

I am going back at least two more times, going to check out the Tuesday night special "Great Savoury Pot Pies" and I am going to check out their brunch. Oh, and the chicken and mash potatoes, that sounds good too. So three times, make it. Oh, and maybe for the Cobb salad, because that might be good also. Don't know yet until I try it!

Saturday night is "Fast Food Revisited" and the waiter told us last Saturday the special was an Artic Char burger. Hmmm. That is some SERIOUS fast food revisiting.

I'm checking this place out, might be a slow start but possibly could turn into something good.

Three times now to see if I can figure out what everyone loves. Not the prices for sure! It is incredibly overpriced, regardless of the large salsa bar. They explain that the food is not seasoned as you are supposed to do it yourself with the salsa bar. I'd rather have seasoned well cooked food with a bottle of Mexican hot sauce than bland, tough meat and then be expected to flavor it myself.

I will admit the beer was the coldest beer I have ever had in a restaurant. That is a perk. The little paper plate with twelve chips on it that you once again are expected to go up to the salsa bar is weird. Where are you even supposed to put the salsa until you have eaten half the chips?

I've tried to like this place but the food at the other two places just seconds away is much better. Someone mentioned seeing Mexicans eating in Dona Cata and assumed it must be good. In the other two restaurants all there are are Latin Americans eating there. And the food is cooked the way is should be with pork lard and seasoning and yumminess.

It's Christmas 365 days of the year here.

It is simply delicious and simply cheap.

Although the stairs and the bathroom are not in the best condition, you will get over it. We have been going there for over two years at least once a week. The prices are so low, you have to tip over twenty % just so the servers can make any kind of money.

I regularly check Vancouver Coastal Health food inspection site and they have always had very minor infractions compared to many other places I have read about and then steered clear of.

I have never personally had a problem with the service although I have heard of others who have. But I always tip more than 20%.

We have eaten mostly everything on the menu, including tons of raw sushi and have never been ill. I think that sometimes it looks like it is empty when a normal sushi restaurant would look packed. It is because it is so big compared to most of the tiny little sushi restaurants in this city.

And the best part is the weird ambiance, the Christmas lights are up 365 days of the year!
