Highlander Restaurant, The9260 Bridgeport Road, Richmond
Highlander Disappoints for NYE
Submitted Sunday, January 1, 2012 - 7:28pm [Dine in]

Wife and I decided to dine at Highlander for NYE as the food has been spectacular in the past. The menu consisted of 5 courses and included champagne for $45. In order, I had Lobster Pumpkin Bisque, Seabass in a Mango Puree, Lemon Sorbet, Duck with scoop of Sweet Potato green beans and carrots, followed by Mango Berry Cheesecake. Wife had Prawns, Seabass in Mango Puree, Lemon Sorbet, Lamb Shank with risotto and Creme Caramel for dessert. We were both disappointed with the menu and felt the 5 courses weren't worth $45. My highlight was the bisque as the seabass portion was tiny as was the sorbet. Never had duck before so can't compare and the cheesecake was still frozen. Wife's highlights were the prawns and again tiny portions for seabass and sorbet, while the lamb shank (although fall off the bone) and creme caramel had no flavour. All in all including the champagne total value should've been $30 each.

Lesson learned, no more set menu at Highlander. Will we come back. Probably but not for a long time.

Also it appears there is a new chef which may reflect on some of the above, although I cannot verify this.

American Grille Restaurant7571 Westminister Hwy, Richmond
Looks Can Be Deceiving
Submitted Friday, June 19, 2009 - 11:03am [Dine in]

At the suggestion of a lady I buy my supplements from, my wife and I ventured to the American Grille for the first time. Upon entering, we were warmly greeted by the waiters and escorted to our tables. We were expecting something a little bit more romantic or cozy but neither existed. We both had mojitos which were average (i.e. no frosting on the rim), while our mains consisted of bacon wrapped chicken (ok but salty) and halibut with linguini (halibut ok, linguini salty and lacked flavour). For dessert we had chocolate decadence cake which was extremely rich. The service was the highlight of our night as both of the servers provided outstanding service. Unfortunately, the food could use a little more flavouring to entice the taste buds.

Had a very bad experience at this place. Were originally seated near the bar but requested to be moved to the lower area. No problems although there was no air flow down there. Almost like sitting in a sauna. While seated near the bar, we ordered a quesadilla dish. Another couple part of our group ordered at the original location. Once we moved, waitress took the rest of the groups order. About 40 minutes later, the dishes arrived. Everyone got their dish except us. The other couple had ordered quesdilla's also. When we asked the waitress if our quesadilla's were coming she said no, there was only 1 order placed. We mentioned to her that the order was placed the same time the other couple placed the order. Manager got involved and she apologized saying we can have the order ready in 5 minutes. Told her no as didn't believe the order would be ready in 5 minutes and we were already fed up with the wait. Got up and left and will be filing a formal complaint later today.
