Sanafir1026 Granville Street, Vancouver
And now for something completely different...
Submitted Monday, June 14, 2010 - 2:45pm [Dine in]

Sanafir had been on our radar for some time so a Saturday night dinner for 4 people seemed like a good idea. Reservation was for 8.45 and we waited and waited until 10.00PM to eat. The hostess and staff were very apologetic and kept popping by to see if we were OK.standing at a table in the middle of the restaurant. They gave us a free round of drinks and some appetizers before we sat down to eat, chose the platter dinner and was not disappointed. A good variety of dishes with the calamari being the best. The only complaint was the loud techno music throbbing away, when they played some Middle-Eastern music it was so much better. My wife had a problem with the generic washroom but that doesn't bother us guys too much. An enjoyable evening.

Kadoya Japanese1063 Davie Street, Vancouver
Busy little sushi parlour
Submitted Friday, October 23, 2009 - 5:12pm [Dine in]

Went for the first time today for lunch with 3 friends. Tables crowded together but enough room to eat. Service was just OK and certainly not poor enough not to tip. Disagree with the last reviewer, in my mind you tip unless the service is intentionally poor. Many of the servers rely on the tips to supplement minimum wage. Quality of the sushi was above average and tasty. Sushi rice was on the warm side but the rolls were fresh and good. Will try again for the speciality rolls.

Ridge Garden Restaurant3113 Arbutus St, Vancouver
Back to the 70's
Submitted Monday, September 14, 2009 - 11:46am [Dine in]

Is this really 2009? Before seeing a Tibetan movie at the Ridge four of us thought we would have a Chinese dinner at "the place on the corner", the Ridge Garden. Not a great experience, bland pricy food, typical of the old type chinese restaurants and maybe what a lot of people still like. The prices at an average of $14 an entree were twice what Hons charge at nowhere near the quality. A sterile atmosphere and predictable dishes. At least my fortune cookie said my future was going to be OK.

Ro Sushi Japanese Bistro542 West Broadway, Vancouver
Worth a second visit (at dinner)
Submitted Monday, September 14, 2009 - 10:45am [Dine in]

Another sushi parlour on Broadway close to Cambie. Run of the mill sushi but they do have a "Funky Creations" list for dinner only with items such as Erotica Roll (tuna, salmon, avocado over crab, cucumber) at $6.50 and Drunken Monkey (eel, crab, asparagus, smoked salmon, tobiko) at $6.95 that sound enticing. Our boring lunch was OK and edible and the service was pleasant. Not sure why they need a flat screen TV on all the time, kind of ruined the lunch but did keep our 2 year old fascinated. Lets home they turn it off at night when they serve up these special funky creations.

Boathouse Restaurant, The1795 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
Food could be a whole lot better.
Submitted Wednesday, September 2, 2009 - 2:43pm [Dine in]

Every time I go to the Boathouse I think there might be a new chef and the food might have improved. Lovely setting but not many people eating lunch on a sunny weekday. Should be packed. How do they screw up yam fries? The chef adds loads of sea salt on them, I guess to make you drink more. These days kitchens should not add salt to anything...let the customer do it or ask first. The server was very understanding and quickly brought us another salt-free serving, she agreed it was excessive! At $6.99 kind of pricey. We shared a lobster shrimp pita with shaved fennel, lettuce and tarragon mayo ($15.99). Large portion so good idea to share. Not bad but the mayo needed a bit more bite to it. This place has the potential to be full every day in the summer.

Cannery Seafood House, The2205 Commissioner Street, Vancouver
Sign the Petition!
Submitted Wednesday, September 2, 2009 - 2:30pm [Dine in]

My wife and I had our wedding anniversary dinner at the Cannery recently and they made us feel really special, menu with our names on it, nice table with a view etc. That was even before we ordered from the menu. If you want to share an appetizer try the Roasted Mussels......I can still taste them now they were so good. Our seafood mains (the salmon/halibut special and their famous salmon wellington) were both excellent. Large portions so don't fill up on bread beforehand. The dessert trio for two was just right to finish the meal. Do take time to sign the petition, hopefully the Port of Vancouver will have a change of heart and renew their lease. www.savethecannery.com

Red Lion Bar & Grill, The2427 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
Heat Wave in West Van
Submitted Friday, July 31, 2009 - 10:52am [Dine in]

Sitting on the patio in front of the Red Lion for lunch in 33 degree heat might not be everyone's idea of a good time but the food was tasty. The service was a little slow, which could have been that the inside was air-conditioned and only a few people were on the patio. The portabello mushroom salad with goats cheese was ideal for the weather conditions and my friend's toasted shrimp sandwich was also good. Best of all the drinks were cold!!!

Hitoe Sushi3347 W 4th Avenue, Vancouver
A new sushi gem
Submitted Monday, July 20, 2009 - 10:23am [Dine in]

Well worth tring is this little sushi restaurant on West 4th Avenue and Blenheim, opposite McBride Park. Several luncheon specials from $6.95 - $9.95 and an interesting menu with several innovative selections. Brown rice available at 50c per roll extra. The presentation was excellent and the chef knows what he's doing. Attentive service and tasty sushi. We stuck to the lunch specials which could not be faulted. Will try something off the menu next time!

India Gate616 Robson St, Vancouver
Not overwhelming
Submitted Friday, July 10, 2009 - 4:48pm [Dine in]

Located on Robson Street, you expect fairly high prices. Lunch special was ok and that's about it. The servers smiled once in a while and the food was predictable but acceptable. I think you have to hit North Delta/Surrey for good Indian food. Nothing beats Mirch Masala on 120th St but it is quite far from Downtown!

Green Lemongrass8180 Westminster Hwy, Richmond
Surprisingly Good
Submitted Friday, July 10, 2009 - 4:41pm [Dine in]

Richmond is sometimes hit and miss when it comes to dining out. Green Lemongrass looks kind of "miss" from the outside but the food did not disappoint inside. At $7.95 for many main dishes the value was excellent and the service was fairly prompt. The waiter was surprised that we (caucasians) were using chop sticks rather than forks. An interesting comment but Richmond welcomes people from all ethnic backgrounds. Right?
Definately will be back.

Hiroshi's Sushi Creations3720 Oak Street, Vancouver
Give them a try!
Submitted Wednesday, May 20, 2009 - 2:20pm [Dine in]

Located on Oak and 21st this little sushi restaurant tries and succeeds in being different. The Creation rolls are quite inspiring and the chef/owner has certainly has a fan club in the area. The special lunch for $7.25 was a selection of 4 separate rolls, all were good except the Tuna mayo roll. Cooked tuna (it tasted canned) with red onion and mayo was the low point.
Overall though, well worth a visit. Why they close at 8.00PM on weekdays and are not open weekends and holidays really baffles me. The busiest times of the week and they are closed. Don't get it!

Shima Sushi1088 Denman Street, Vancouver
Nothing special here
Submitted Monday, March 30, 2009 - 11:45am [Dine in]

There are just so many sushi spots in the West End, most selling the generic stuff. Shima is small, slightly claustrophobic with only one table large enough to seat four. It is at a disadvantage as opposite is Akira which, although also small, is one of the area's better sushi restaurants. In saying that, Shima was passable, the rolls were fresh and the value good. However, to build your business you need to stand out from the competition and Shima does not do that.

Sylvia's Restaurant & Lounge1154 Gilford Street, Vancouver
Nice view of English Bay....food just OK
Submitted Friday, March 27, 2009 - 2:26pm [Dine in]

The Sylvia is an institution in the West End. Watching the sun set over English Bay is a great moment in time, yet the quality of the food has never lived up to the amazing view. Lunch earlier this week was mediocre at best. The curried shrimp sandwich was poorly toasted and uninspiring, the burgers and other dishes were passable but nothing special. The service was pleasant and our waitress tried hard. Could be better!

Mediocre yet comfortable
Submitted Friday, March 13, 2009 - 2:45pm [Dine in]

Having been open now for 18 months this restaurant should have its act together. The manager seemed to spend more time telling us about the history of the restaurant than supervising his kitchen and waiting staff. Service was on the slow side and not attentive during the meal. The food was OK but that's about all, with such an excellent location and terrific design we expected more from the meal....could be better, that's for sure.

Marmalade Kitchen & Bar1010 Beach Avenue, #3, Vancouver
Sitting in the sun
Submitted Thursday, March 5, 2009 - 11:34pm [Dine in]

Who would have thought sitting outside overlooking False Creek on a great little patio at the beginning of March? Never visited Marmalade before and was pleasantly surprised. Not busy.....it's hidden away close to the Burrard Street Bridge, our lunch was very tasty. I had the tandoori chicken sandwich with fries and a light curry dip on the side, good value at $12. My friend had the toasted veggie sandwich and salad that was also very good. Service was professional and not hurried. Will be back.

Knight and Day Restaurant1061 Denman Street, Vancouver
Above average comfort food
Submitted Wednesday, March 4, 2009 - 12:10pm [Dine in]

When Knight and Day decided to open up one of their restaurants on Denman Street I wasn't sure who their main market would be. Summer tourists? Seniors and apartment dwellers? People wanting a change from all the ethnic choices in the West End? I went there with two friends for a quick meal before a meeting and found the atmosphere a lot more comfortable than most similar establishments. Menu was huge and there's something on it for everyone. The all day eggs benny for $8.99 was quite tasty but the price of burgers and sandwiches might be too expensive compared to some of the lower priced restaurants on the street. Service was above average which will help them survive a while longer.

Burgoo3096 Main Street, Vancouver
Main St favourite
Submitted Thursday, February 19, 2009 - 6:10pm [Dine in]

Just hit upon this place by chance, not well advertised outside but a great location for trendy locals. The menu is varied with something for everyone. The special of the day was a strong white cheddar fondue with stout which was excellent and a very adequate lunch, $13 was a bit on the high side but the presentation was just about worth it. The BLT and soup was also good and the service was pleasant. Must be good at night with more of a bar type atmosphere. It seems they have built up a steady local clientale which is good for both the restaurant and the neighbourhood.

Tapenade Bistro3711 Bayview Street, Richmond
Above average
Submitted Thursday, February 12, 2009 - 11:53am [Dine in]

Their 6 year anniversary 3 course meal for $29 was good value and overall Tapenade offered an upscale Vancouver style dining experience in homey Steveston. Loved the simple wood decor and the background music was loud enough so that we could not hear other diner's conversations (always an annoyance to me!) The French onion soup was not cheesey enough but the main courses of braised ribs or prawns provencale (sauteed tiger prawns and gnocchi) were both very good. Altogether worth going back and a good alternative to travelling downtown and searching for reasonable parking.

Bogart's Chophouse & Bar1619 West Broadway St., Vancouver
Best DOV ever
Submitted Monday, February 2, 2009 - 10:01am [Dine in]

Six of us annually get together to try out a restaurant we have never been to and this year Bogarts was on our list. Our waiter was very friendly and professional and explained the courses. He did not try and upgrade us from the advertised $28 menu to the alternative $38 menu...it was just there if you wanted to try other foods! We all had the seafood chowder which was excellent, scallops, mussels and other morsels in a tasty rich red broth. Six out of six liking it isn't bad! 5 in the party had for the main course steak striploin which as other reviewers commented was cooked more than asked for. Rare at Bogarts = medium and medium = well! Apart from that the meat was aged perfectly and tasty. The stuffed chicken breast and rissotto was excellent and the desserts all very good. Oh, that creme brulee! The wine pairings were well priced and the jazz in the background very pleasant. We were not rushed as in some DOV restaurants (we had an 8.00PM sitting) and didn't leave till nearly 11.00PM. A very enjoyable evening.

Movie and good food!!!!
Submitted Saturday, January 24, 2009 - 10:19pm [Dine in]

Tinseltown shows a lot of good movies, has free parking and has a food court that could be found in any shopping mall in Canada. Tucked away in the middle of the court is the entrance to an OK looking Chinese "fusion" restaurant with an unlikely feature.....very good, reasonable food. The seafood sizzler, a special at only $9.99 with scallops, shrimp, squid and other seafood was excellent and the chicken & mushrooms dish very tasty as well with plenty of veggies and rice. The waitress forgot our salad but made up for it with her friendly and professional attitude. Most large cinema complexes like Silver City have terrible expensive food so this was a real surprise.
