Cafe Il Nido780 Thurlow Street, Vancouver
lovely little restaurant
Submitted Saturday, September 12, 2009 - 2:23pm [Dine in]

ate here in the middle of the week and it was extremely quiet so i wasnt sure what to expect based on this first impression.
had the capesante (scallops) to begin which were marvelous - cooked perfectly that resulted in a very delicious and tender final flavor. i also ordered the ravioli (hand made stuffed with lobster) which was just as delicious. i savored every bite which made me crave more each time i finished a piece. the only problem with the ravioli was that it was made too salty for my liking.
our waitress was new which didnt take away from the dining experience. she was polite and came to our table everytime with a smile. she was constantly checking if everything was okay and also refilling our cups when we needed it. she did screw up our bill when it came to paying for it but that was not a big deal.
i have to admit prices are reasonable and not expensive at first glance but for the quantity of food that one is receiving, the value isnt really good. for example, paying almost $20 for 4 pieces of ravioli which becomes $5/piece. if you ask me, thats pretty pricey for something that is bite-size.
the ambiance is simple and has a cozy feeling to it. it gives the customer a relaxing and laid-back atmosphere for him or her to dine in.
i would return here because there are other items on the menu that sound enticing and if its anything like the first time, i would take great delight in eating here more often.

was expecting alot more
Submitted Saturday, September 12, 2009 - 11:49am [Dine in]

came here with a friend because i heard good things about this restaurant from various sources so i thought i would give this place a try.
i started with the creamy seafood chowder which was quite tasty but the only problem is that it arrived a little cold. i do enjoy my chowders warm/hot and i think it was sitting on the counter too long before it came to me. my main was the 9oz. top sirloin which was just average. the steak itself did not blow my taste buds away nor was it tender like some of the other steakhouses in vancouver. honestly, i was pretty disappointed with the quality of the food.
our waitress was friendly but was quite slow in getting around to us. she took more than 10 minutes to finally come to our table and in addition to that, she took our appetizer and entree orders separately which i found odd. she did not do anything wrong but her service wasnt particularly greatl either.
the prices are quite reasonable compared to the higher end steak restaurants in vancouver so one wont be breaking the bank when dining here.
loud and energetic atmosphere; place is dimly lit which would be appropriate for a date or what not. the bathrooms are the nicest i can recall which are decorated with couches and flatscreen tvs.
overall, chop is average at best. the food is the biggest letdown here which i have to say is enough to turn me off from coming back. i would still give this place another try as it does seem to have the potential to be a terrific restaurant.

cheap but flavourless eats
Submitted Friday, August 7, 2009 - 5:51pm [Dine in]

a pretty popular restaurant for group hangouts so we decided to give this place a try.
the food was absolutely atrocious: calamari came cold and soft, pizzas seemed and tasted like it was made by a child, poutine didnt have the right gravy and cheese combination, and the mini pork ribs tasted awful. i cant cook squat but i am sure i could wing something in the kitchen that would taste better than what i had put into my stomach that evening.
waitress was friendly and polite. she took our orders in a timely fashion and was around to ask us if we needed more drinks. the only problem with her was that she didnt clear away our dirty dishes which just stacked up on our tables.
perhaps the cheap prices here reflect the quality of the food. too bad because i was looking for a place that would give me a good bang for my buck.
they have a nice patio thats great for the summer. place has a neat decor and it definitely has that sports bar environment to it.
i know for a fact that i will not be returning here in the future. with the endless choices of restaurants on broadway, this place ranks at the bottom of my list.

pizza was sub-par, service was worse
Submitted Friday, August 7, 2009 - 5:37pm [Dine in]

came here for a group event and was looking forward to trying their food since i have driven by this place several times and it looked pretty busy.
overall, the food was decent... they have a wide selection of pizzas to choose from and we ended up ordering about 5 different pizzas. they were pretty stingy with the toppings and in terms of taste, there wasnt a huge difference from theirs to the ones you buy frozen at the local grocery store. i have to admit the pizzas were disappointing.
service was good to start off with and then it went downhill from there. waitress rarely came around and the second round of food we had ordered took extremely long. the restaurant wasnt that busy so i dont know why there was such a delay with that.
prices are similar to other pizza places around town but quality here doesnt measure up to those other places. when it is nearly costing $20 per pizza, you expect it to get the taste buds rolling but those expectations were too high here.
ambiance was the best part. relaxing environment made for hanging out with friends. had a couple of tvs hanging around the place which was a nice addition.
i personally dont know if i would return. the experience wasnt horrible, the food just didnt measure up to what it should have been which is enough for any diner to not return again.

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House777 Thurlow Street, Vancouver
set my expectations too high
Submitted Sunday, June 14, 2009 - 9:42pm [Dine in]

joe fortes has been around and ive heard great things about this place so eventually i decided to dine here for a special occasion.
arrived here promptly and was seated without a wait, away from the main dining area at my request which i appreciated.
i started with the calamari and it tasted mediocre. i like my calamari crispy which these were not so that was a downer. my main was the prime rib steak (with mash potatoes) which was cooked medium but it was still relatively red. i should have asked for a leaner slab of meat because the one i received was a tad too fat. also, the meat had no real taste to it so that was disappointing. the vegetables that came with it were cold and i guarantee they were not supposed to be that way.
the real upside to the evening was the service. our waitress was very friendly and polite to us from the start when she introduced herself. she was around often to refills our waters and take any requests that we had.
for the quality of the food, i thought it was overpriced. it was nothing exceptional yet it was pretty pricey. i certainly do not mind dropping money these prices but the food has to be great. i was full at the end of the night so i give them credit for that.
the place looks nice and they have a piano player at the mid way point of the flight of stairs which is a neat addition. the place could use a renovation though in the main dining area as it does look a little run down (which may or may not be their intention).
overall, my experience was just average. i can say i have had much better (and obviously worse) so this falls right in the middle. that being said, i dont know if i would return since the selection of seafood restaurants in vancouver are quite extensive.

exceptional dining experience
Submitted Saturday, June 6, 2009 - 11:33am [Dine in]

was curious to try this new restaurant as there has been lots of hype and good reviews to this place (especially with a world renowned chef behind the creation of their menu)
i dont think i have the words to express how delicious their food was. i started with their bacon wrapped shrimp which came with this sweet & sour sauce that blew me away. the shrimp was fresh and cooked perfectly. shortly after, my soy glazed short ribs with a side of mash potatoes came and this tasted just as great as my appetizer. pork was tender and juicy which got my taste buds rolling. their mash potatoes was very garlic-ey which i enjoyed however some people may not like that as much as i did. i finished with their green tea dessert cake which was light and unique. i wanted to try something different than the typical cheesecake dessert and im glad i tried it but i dont know whether i would order it again.
our waitress was friendly and polite from the beginning of the night. she came by regularly to check on the status of our meals and she knew exactly how to treat her customers with care. always a plus to have great service!
prices are a "bargain" for the quality of food that you receive. they dont quite charge fine dining prices however the bill came out to $70 per person which is decent considering we had the whole nine (although without wine).
the place is beautifully decorated. you have the lounge, restaurant or terrace option to dine in. i sat in the restaurant area which was dimly lit and quieter than the lounge section. the only thing i did not like about where i sat was that the table next to us was too close. i felt they could just reach out and grab a bite of my food.
i would dine here again in a heart beat. one of the best restaurant experiences i have had in a long time and i would recommend anyone to give this place a shot. i now see why jean georges has received the publicity of being who he is in the food world.

pricer mediocre japanese AYCE
Submitted Saturday, June 6, 2009 - 10:32am [Dine in]

came here with a friend to try their AYCE menu and wasnt impressed with the quality of the food.
their sushi rolls are quite small and are nothing spectacular (yes, size is not a factor in this situation because one has unlimited orders but it was something that i wanted to mention). i have to point out that their salmon sashimi was terrible: not fresh, not tasty and not moist. i have to order my salmon any time i visit a japanese restaurant and their salmon alone discourages me from wanting to return here. on a positive note, their AYCE menu is quite extensive so there is no shortage of different items that one can order.
service is inconsistent. i had one waitress who clearly did not want to be working there and came reguarly without even saying a word however there was another waitress who was cheerful and friendly when it came to taking our orders and filling our cups.
in terms of value, it would be much better to visit here during their happy hours but i was not able to make it during those time which meant that it came out to roughly $22 per person as opposed to $15 which is more realistic.
the layout of the restaurant was nice and i felt the environment was relaxing enough to somewhat enjoy this experience. there was a tv next to me so i could watch while i eat.
overall, the biggest turn off was their poor (and i stress poor salmon sashimi). i suppose i would come back here but only during happy hours and if i was starving with no where else to eat.

Bistro Sakana1123 Mainland Street, Vancouver
terrible japanese restaurant
Submitted Sunday, May 3, 2009 - 9:10pm [Dine in]

probably one of my worst experiences at a japanese restaurant and i have been to quite a few so that is saying a lot about how poor this place is.
their rolls are bite size and nothing different than what you might find at an AYCE japanese restaurant which is unacceptable considering the prices they are charging. their so called large salmon sashimi is $16 for a ridiculously small amount and is only worth half of that at most.
their service is even worse. a waitress did not come to our table to take our orders for at least a full 12 minutes and the restaurant was next to empty (3 other tables occupied at that time). we made it clear that we knew what we wanted (i.e. our menus were closed) yet they still did not realize this. on top of that, our food did not arrive for another 25 minutes. this time, there were only 2 other tables full (because one had left) which just goes to show that the chefs and waitresses do not understand the concept of service.
in terms of price, its a great place to throw away money and leave hungry so if that is your intention, i would highly recommend this place.
nice outdoor patio available to sit at on a sunny day but the indoor dining area has nothing noteworthy to mention.
the fact that this restaurant is located in yaletown should demand higher quality food because of the more expensive prices that restaurants in this area will be charging but their poor service and mediocre food that bistro sakana provides is completely the opposite. i can definitely say that this is one place i will not be coming back to.

good place for drinks/food during & after work
Submitted Sunday, May 3, 2009 - 8:34pm [Dine in]

when i came here with a buddy on a weeknight, it was packed with people in their work attire to probably get their fix after a long day on the job.
ordered their bacon 'high rise' cheeseburger and i can say it was no understatement. it was loaded with toppings and probably one of the biggest burgers i have eaten. the burger itself was delicious and well worth the money.
our waitress was friendly however it was hard to get solid service because the restaurant was so busy. on a side note (something that did not necessarily apply to our waitress), the one thing i hate about eating at franchise restaurants (i.e. joey's, cactus club, earls, etc.) is how fake the waitresses can be. yes, these restaurants hire the best looking girls in town because its likely they bring more business (and tips) but for me personally, i can care less about how good looking the girl serving me is. pretentious service is one of my biggest pet peeves as a diner so that is why i tend to stay away from these type of places.
the prices on the menu are not steep, average prices for restaurants that fall in this category. my burger was $14 and i was quite content after it so no complaints there.
very loud bar atmosphere which is expected for a restaurant like this. the place looks excellent in terms of design and the actual layout of the restaurant so have to give them extra points here.
i could see myself returning here for late night drinks because its very accessible and right in the downtown core. also a great place to mingle and chill with friends and co-workers. overall, solid restaurant with no real flaws.

pleasant dining experience
Submitted Sunday, May 3, 2009 - 7:45pm [Dine in]

came here on a sunday evening and it was very quiet. probably only two other tables that were occupied but this lack of attendance did not reflect the quality of the restaurant itself.
i had their 'small' fixed menu dinner option which is priced at $34 dollars for two items (and they also offer a 'large' fixed menu of four items which was $45 - much better value if you are real hungry).. i had the crab cakes to start and the mushroom stuff chicken as my main, both tasted good. it wasnt anything extraordinary nor was it anything to complain about. the martini's were made great and tasted wonderful.
the service heightened and made this experience more enjoyable. our waitress was friendly, attentive and easy to talk with. she did spill a bit of our martini's when she poured it into our glasses but it was no big deal because it was just a simple mistake and she was able to make a joke out of it.
the prices are mentioned above which is fairly reasonable for a sub "fine dining" experience in the downtown core (cant quite call it authentic fine dining). you probably wont find two items (appetizer and entree) anywhere else for that price. also, the portions are not tiny so you will likely be full after a two course fix.
the environment is very dark - almost like a basement type atmosphere with little light. the only light are candles at the tables which is romantic depending on how you look at it. the dining area is nicely decorated as well.
overall, i cant quite say that i would return for the food itself. it was a solid dinner experience but it wont stand out as one that i will remember.

Seto Japanese Restaurant8460 Alexandra Road, #155, Richmond
awesome food but overpriced
Submitted Saturday, April 25, 2009 - 6:42pm [Dine in]

tucked away in a little corner, this place has alot to offer and is definitely one of the better restaurants for japanese food in this part of town.
they have a tremendous selection of sushi and a wide variety of different rolls. everything is very fresh and made when you order, with solid portions given (except for the salmon sashimi)
waitresses come around frequently to refill tea and are very friendly with smiles on their faces. the waiters are just very blah and dont seem to care too much about the customers.
poor value though. everything is expensive compared to other japanese restaurants; perhaps one is paying for their quality?
nicely decorated place with a real japanese feel to the environment. helps to enhance the dining experience.
overall, the food makes this place worth a second visit but it will take a bigger bite out of your wallet (or purse) which may not be worth the trade.

Sweet Revenge Patisserie4160 Main Street, Vancouver
great dessert but overpriced
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 7:48pm [Dine in]

their desserts are great but for the prices they charges, its robbery.
i ordered their chocolate mousse cake and white chocolate cheesecake; their mousse cake was one of the best i have ever had - not too sweet with a very smooth flavor to it, wonderful! on the other hand, their cheesecake was just average. it was fine (and not chunky) in texture and tasted good but there are lots of places out there that offer better cheesecake.
the man who served us was courteous and polite, he did a solid job of running the place by himself with only one other guy in the back making the desserts so props to them.
their prices are roughly $7 per dessert which is expensive considering a) their location is on main street (not downtown or on the west end) and b) this place is not a restaurant. yes, restaurants do charge more but this place likely has minimal overhead costs to incur so they should therefore be charging less for their desserts.
ambiance is great - cozy atmosphere with dim lighting and great decor. nice environment to bring a date or a friend to relax after a full meal.
overall, its a great place with lots of selection on their menu with undoubtedly wonderful tasting dessert. prices are steeper but its not large enough to steer people from this place as it has built a pretty solid reputation with their customers.

New Bohemian, The3162 West Broadway, Vancouver
average food, average place.
Submitted Wednesday, March 25, 2009 - 2:20pm [Dine in]

theres lots of competition out there with lounges so these places really need to stand out and do something to draw customers on a consistent basis. i would say that the new bohemian falls in the middle and just met my expectations in terms of an average dining experience.
i was not pleased with the food. my apricot glazed salmon tasted mediocre at best along with everything else that came with it. the taste was just bland in nature and i felt the food was cooked in a hurry. my gfs beef tortellini was too salty, the chefs must have doubled the sodium content because i have never tasted pasta like that before.
our waitress was friendly and helpful when it came to ordering our dishes. however, she wasnt on top of things and didnt come around to see if we wanted another round of drinks until we pointed it out to her nor did she refill our glasses of water more than once. not a huge issue but it still came to my attention.
prices here are fair. i do not recall anything on the menu being more than $30 (but i could be wrong) however the trade off is sub-par tasting food which is not something i am willing to take.
i love the ambiance in this place. dimly lit, attractive bar appearance and a spacious dining area along with a casual atmosphere. i could see how this place would be great to go to after dinner to drink and relax with friends.
overall, i cant say anything more about this place. i would return if i was in the area for drinks but if i was hungry, i wouldnt come here because the variety and selection of restaurants in this area is enormous. with that being said, its hard to overlook the poor food quality here when theres potentially something much better "next door".

best mexican food in vancouver
Submitted Wednesday, March 25, 2009 - 1:44pm [Dine in]

ive been to mexico so i know what to expect in terms of authenticity and this restaurant comes closer than any others offering mexican food (without too much "westernization") in terms of taste and quality.
their food is superb! ive tried around many different items on the menu and everything tasted delicious... you get huge portions for what you pay (with nothing on the menu exceeding $25) and the ingredients/spices that are used makes each dish so much better. one final word in regards to the food: their tacos are deadly and addictive.
service is not a strong point. the waitresses i had were friendly & polite but quite inexperienced and thus miss certain orders or did not come around to bring refills/extra eating utensils. however, ive noticed that their staff (waitresses) has changed so im sure the owner has noticed this fault as well and is improving this particular area.
best value for what you pay. you get truly authentic food for prices that you will not believe. and i cannot stress how much food you actally get.
the environment is loud (like a "bar" setting) and thats what the restaurant aims for it to be. you have two plasma tvs hanging on opposite ends of the restaurant, music playing from the speakers around the room and a bar table that overlooks the chefs cooking. great combination for a place to just kick it.
this place is packed on the weekends. there are line-ups basically everyday on friday, saturday and sundays during dinner times. ive seen people willing to eat out on the patio in the chilly weather which goes to show how terrific this place is. and as a consistent diner here, i agree every bit.

very tasty butter chicken
Submitted Friday, March 13, 2009 - 2:12pm [Dine in]

your first impression from the parking lot is that this place looks like a dump but once you try the food, it certainly changes your mind.
i ordered the butter chicken with rice and it was absolutely fantastic. its one of the best butter chickens ive had and i would certainly come again just for that one dish. the only complaint is that the portion is relatively small for what you pay. however, when you think of most indian restaurants (except for the ayce ones), their meat dishes are always small so i cant really criticize them for that.
our waitress was an older lady (probably part of the owners family) who was very polite and kind. sweet personality but she wasnt around enough when we needed her (i.e. to get our bill or extra napkins).
value wise, prices are reasonable. much cheaper (and tastier) here than the other indian restaurants on w broadway. so if you are not looking to spend as much money, this is a great place to hit up.
ambiance is this restaurant's weak spot. the carpet needs to be replaced because it looks dirty and the dining area itself could use a renovation. there are a few interesting ethnic paintings on the wall which helps to take the attention away from these flaws but not long enough.
this place is basically a hole in the wall type of joint but i have to admit their indian food tastes great! in this case, that is a trade-off i am willing to take.

decent ayce sushi
Submitted Friday, March 13, 2009 - 2:00pm [Dine in]

tried this place out with a couple of friends on a weekend night because i was starving and i felt after this place did a good job of satisfying my hunger.
the food is average, you can taste that the sushi is not the freshest out there like some of the other japanese restaurants nor are most of the other dishes on the menu. there is no limit on sashimi which is good and their deep fried scallops are pretty tasty. for what its worth, the food is overall solid.
in terms of service, there isnt any. waiters and waitresses are there to take your order and after that, you are basically on your own. grab your own refills, grab your extra napkins, and whatever else you need.
ayce pricing on a weekend night was around 15 or 16 bucks, cant remember. that is an alright price but there are cheaper prices around town (just have to find them).
the ambiance is just like any other japanese restaurants. the environment is loud mostly with all the talking from all the other customers. that is expected with an ayce place.
bc sushi definitely took away that hunger, i ate til i could no longer eat. however, that is all it did.

wonderful restaurant!
Submitted Saturday, March 7, 2009 - 2:33pm [Dine in]

ate here on valentines day and it was our first time at bogart's so we were not sure what to expect. it was a solid experience and i would definitely return without a doubt.
i ordered this seafood pasta which was absolutely magnificent: flavorful creamy sauce that accompanied the pasta and a good portion of shrimp and scallops that came with it. one of the best tasting pasta dishes i have ever had. my gf ordered the pork chop dish and it was equally as delicious.
our waitress was polite and friendly the whole evening. she brought our refills when we needed and was around in case we needed anything else so her excellent service made the dining experience that much better.
the prices are very fair relevant to the portion of food that you receive and in terms of the quality itself. there are very few places in town that charge prices like this and still give their customers the satisfaction of being full after.
they have a lovely environment with a jazz band that starts at 8pm... always a pleasure to have live and relaxing music to accompany a meal.
again, terrific restaurant that hits all the right notes... i would recommend this place to anyone.

great tasting japanese food
Submitted Friday, January 30, 2009 - 8:48pm [Dine in]

walked by here and wanted to try it out and in hindsight, it was a good decision.
we were welcomed very politely by the hostess and she was very friendly to us throughout the rest of the evening. however, the service in general was poor. it was difficult trying to get their attention when we needed the bill or when we wanted to order something else so being more attentive to their customers requires some work.
i thought the food tasted great! ingredients were very fresh, sashimi was fresh as well and tasty! the quality of the food here is definitely their strong point and i would return just for that.
i do understand it is a tapa place so portions are smaller but their prices needs to reflect that as well. there are so many places around town that offer huge rolls of sushi for the same price as this restaurant so why would someone want to pay more for less. a single order of salmon sashimi cost $13 (small and thin slices too) which is ridiculous for the quantity that is given.
place was very clean, bathrooms were as well. the environment is not very loud like you would expect in most japanese restaurants so that is nice to have here.
i would certainly like to eat here again but paying for the amount of food they serve is holding me back. one could easily get their bill up to $60 (or even $80) for two people without either being close to full. so when its sushi and that is the case, i find that hard to justify.

decent korean bbq/sushi combo
Submitted Friday, January 30, 2009 - 8:27pm [Dine in]

i had their AYCE lunch buffet and the food was solid... i can say i was definitely full after eating here but its not a place that i would care to come back for.
with most AYCE restaurants, flavor or freshness is hardly present. chefs dont put much time and effot into their food for obvious reasons so one just eats to fill their stomach. overall, their sushi was fine and the meat for the bbq was average.
service was lacking. they did a poor job or taking empty dishes away as they can rack up pretty fast and no effort to fill our water. they have lots of helping hands there so i dont see why this was an issue for them (or maybe it was just plain poor customer service).
you are paying a relatively cheap price for "unlimited" food so you cant criticize that aspect of it. very good deal for their lunch special!
in terms of ambiance, place was normal. nothing special stood out from the walls or enhanced the environment so little to say here. never went to the bathrooms but i bet it must have been dirty (and that conclusion is based on poor service and the fact that its an AYCE place).
it boils down to quality vs. quantity and when you pick a place that offers AYCE, its always the latter that wins. so if you are starving and want a fill, heres a good place for it.

delicious lobsterfest meal
Submitted Saturday, January 24, 2009 - 3:21pm [Dine in]

came here during the week with friends to try the 3 course lobsterfest offer that they are currently promoting... $25 per person and that is one of the best deals you can possibly get anywhere in this city.
i started with the lobster bisque which was fabulous... broth was packed with flavor, not too salty with just the right balance. for my main, i ordered the lobster stuffed salmon which was just as delicious. salmon was not dry and cooked with just the right flavor! lastly, the mud pie was yummy.. i thought it was going to be a chocolate cake but it turned out to be a coffee one which did not negatively affect the dessert portion.
our waitress was friendly and polite to us.. she did come around to ask how our meal was but other than, she didnt return to fill our glasses with water which stayed empty for the rest of the evening til we asked for the bill.
in terms of value for this particular offer, all i can say is that it cant be beaten. there is one note that i would like to make: its hardly a lobsterfest at all, your dishes are not loaded with lobster as the term lobsterfest might imply so the advertising on their part is misleading. but again, most advertisements are.
very relaxed atmosphere on the second floor which overlooks english bay.. i could see how it would be beautiful environment to dine in during the summer inside the restaurant and outside on the patio.
i would certainly come back here if given the opportunity. my overall experience was great here so that leaves me no reason to not want to return.
