bad very bad
Submitted Saturday, May 28, 2011 - 11:54am [Dine in]

food had always been ok i always loved there #17 and 32 but the last past 5 month there food seem to change not to sure what it was. there service has always been bad very bad sometime rude. i never liked there service i feel the people there goes to work but has no love. ate there a while back with my nephew and service has gotten worst. so how does bad service become worst service?? anyway my nephew is hungery and there was two poeple on the floor, not busy and they can't even do there job. we waited (felt so long) they brought tea then walked off. our menu is put togethere that means where ready. im not gonna wave you down that's extreamly rude. there was a single right next to us i felt bad for him they fogot to put in his order. when they finally came she was grumpy and said nothing just stood there like a zombie and just looked at us. so my nephew just went ahead and order. when they finally put it in they where still trying to fined out what that single table order. they end up asking him again. overal this place has always been very bad even with there update the place still looks dirty. the price of the food is reasonable

will not go back to bad
Submitted Saturday, May 28, 2011 - 11:33am [Dine in]

since they move location and went to blanshard, there place expanded but im guessing there not moving product. the first week they open i order from them (takeout) rainbow roll, spider roll, spicy tuna was all not fresh. so i stopped ordering from them for a few month then i order again still disappionting. i know of a few that gave up on them and now i am too. they told the owner of the non fresh food and what he can do to change that but still nothing was done. last month i order from them and there rice was mix with non cooked rice. so all my sushi that i took a bite from had a crunch to it. i just fined that there average nothing special. other may like them but i sure dont

Akemi Sushi737 Goldstream Ave, 111, Victoria
ONLY ok
Submitted Saturday, May 28, 2011 - 11:19am [Take-out]

akemi is only ok
i ate in there once, nice, mainly do takeout. the service is good and friendly with a smile every time. it's to bad there roll is way over price and to small. i only love there bento box there the only thing that is werth it. i did takeout the day after victoria day and it was very disappointing. there box still made me happy but there sushi really not werth it. the rice is not season well very plain there spider roll was cooked in old oil and tasted bad. the rainbow roll and dynamite roll tasted old. there spicy tuna was small with very little tuna. im not sure if they closed on that monday because it was a holiday but the roll for sure is not fresh. that day was the day that we will not order rolls from them again. but i still love there bento box cause you can never go wrong with that. beside im not able to not like that place cause the older couple are always so nice. im always gonna still do take out but only for there box.

Smoken Bones Cookshack1701 Douglas Street, #7, Victoria
not a fan
Submitted Monday, April 26, 2010 - 10:20am [Dine in]

nothing to WOW about. the inside of smoken bones is nice and it made me want to stay and eat there but i did't so i did take out instead, twice, tired from work(sad). i normaly dont do take out cause the food is never the same when you get it home. but if u got it freshley done and you live right there i was like "why not" but i was wrong. first time doing take out was ok we got the "bbq taster" but i felt like it was a day old food and everything was coverd in the same sauce. now the second take out happen last night. i place the order and i tip the girl, good. but there was no thank you( lack of careness) i was told it would be 25min but it took 45min and a sorry with no meaning. not happy. the rib and pull pork all taste the same because of the sauce. the cole slow was blan no flavour, the hush poppies was burn and bitter, the potato was week lack of seasoning. so i fine the food was poorly done with no love in it. and chargeing what they did i dont think it was werth it. PIG is much better even though there menu is smaller, but the staff there has love.

ok
Submitted Sunday, January 10, 2010 - 1:30pm [Dine in]

not bad
sweet and sour pork was good, salt and peper squid was nice, there fat noodle was very plain has colour but no flavour. im a dumbling lover so there there pot sticker was simple. the only thing i dont like was where they sat us. being the fiveth person there you dont seat people at the alley of where the food is, people are walking by(the boy who sat us has no clue what he was doing). that's the last place to put someone(my crazy thought). anyway there not bad. seems like there still learning. they do seat you and i dont mine going again for lunch, easy and quick. but i like to be there at close to noon. food are fresh then

not please
Submitted Monday, November 30, 2009 - 1:59am [Dine in]

this is one place i have stop going to since they first open there new location. i really enjoy there bubble tea, it's very nice but there service is very poor. i like how its a place u can just relax and catch up with friends but the worker just dont care. i would wait in line very postionly and what happen is the server would just avoid me and just continue to talk with there friends. and all the other would just walk by and not say anything. i waited 5min and walk out. this happen twice. busy or not there is no service. i know my review is old and it's not up to date cuz i have not been there but from all my friends that continue to go there says there still not improving. and for those who do get good service , lucky u cuz it's just not my luck!

nice place
Submitted Sunday, August 24, 2008 - 8:13pm [Dine in]

i was there for the weekend with my b/f. we made resevation but i didn't like where the girl sat us. my b/f enjoy his dinner, can't remember what he had. but i had the steak and lobster. i enjoy the lobster but the steak...just ok. they said they added some salt and pepper to it but it was weak. my steak was crispy on top and not juicy until i got to the middle. i had 4 nice juicy peice. also had to add some more salt and pepper myself. me and my b/f order a side dish that was good enough for two. we got mash patato, it was good but after 10min of that mash sitting there it went hard on us. kind of like a dough after. i did enjoy my time there thought the place looks lovley and the server was wounderful.

Il Terrazzo555 Johnson St., Victoria
ok
Submitted Wednesday, July 9, 2008 - 2:54am [Dine in]

just like everyone else i heard great things about this place so me and my boyfriend decided we should go have lunch there. we waited queitly at the door. all three of the worker saw us but did nothing. the bar guy look, the server and the manager or who ever he was also took a glance at us, still stand there we both look at each STILL waiting for a greating. finally the one standing close to other decided to ask if we've been help since we where standing next to him this hold time. we said NO and he said someone will be right there. just standing there seem to go by so long and it was not busy at all. finally we where seated. our server was sweet and kind and help answer my question. the food was nothing special there menu only use big worlds to make it seem so great. overal the food was ok and i like my server. the seating space is kind of tight.

dont know what to say
Submitted Tuesday, May 27, 2008 - 12:02am [Dine in]

i really dont know what to say about the fireside grill. we went here on mother day. i really like the place it was welcoming .
our server that we had was nice she gave us the bill like we asked. the bus girl was not to happy or freindly it was like she was force into working, no smile at all. we went there with our family and i had doublt about this place because of the review that i have read, so i was worried. funny thing was i was right.
three things happen that night
1. my food was not hot or even warm
2. food was over done
3. and last the food order was forgotten
i did not enjoy my food it was tastless like a very week tamato sauce. but... there dessert was wounderful, very tastie.
i really dont have much to say about this place. if your not picky or fussy you can go there. you might enjoy it better then we did. we probably just got some new cook intraining

just ok nothing to wow about
Submitted Thursday, April 10, 2008 - 1:54am [Dine in]

i use to like them even there service. but once they switch owner it kind of went down hill for me. i went there early with 8 of my family thinking we will beat the rush and get the best food. but, ohh my i was wrong we wait it for almost 30min be for a real cart came by. i was very piss. i ask them are u not serving? and "they say yes it's coming but not busy yet". there was so many people there and they had no cart but dessert. all i can say is that place is not the same any more once they sold it to a younger couple. they still have some of the same staff. we still go there and we can see that there slowly improving.

Yoshi Sushi771 Vernon Ave., 601, Victoria
not bad
Submitted Thursday, April 10, 2008 - 1:35am [Dine in]

yoshi sushi is like any other sushi place menu are ver similar but it's all about how they make them and what ingredient they use. i really love the gyoza they are the best in town. nobody else beat them. im not really a big fan of there rolls. there are days that there roll are very tastie and can be very plain. i only go for lunch never dinner time. that's beacuse i love there dynamite bento box. very easy and simple. that's for those who are not to picky with what they eat. the staff are nice. they try there best to take your order when they can. there are days that they are to busy and they fall behind . but i have to say they do try to help each other out. i say go for the lunch boxes. easy and fast.

Moxie's Classic Grill1010 Yates St, #1, Victoria
so sad
Submitted Wednesday, April 9, 2008 - 2:24am [Dine in]

moxie, such a bad place to go to. there food is nothing special there sevice suck. i stop going for two years now beacuse of how poorly they served us. the people there are only hired for there looks no doublt about that. but there young and snoppy poeple. they dont care about much beside there tips and look. i walk in at the door more then 10 time they rather look at me and still chat away and when there done they come and seat us. if you're not a friends of anyone working there then you'll be treat badly but if you know the worker then of course you're gonna say something good about them. i only hope there service would improve.

poorly done
Submitted Wednesday, April 9, 2008 - 1:54am [Dine in]

im very disapointed with their service. i've been there 5 times now with my boyfriend. im a server myself so i try not to gudge so much. but this time i did. i dont know what it is but the people there just dont have heart in what they do. not all just the one we seen. the thing that i dont like everytime we go there is that we would wait, patiently and those who would walk by or even look over would not even have a smile on there face or even say "hello". for me when i serve wether or not im busy i try to let my customer no that we notice them and we'll be right there. there nothing speical about this place for me to say much. all i can say is that i do very much love there food but dislike there service very much. the tip we gave should have gone to the kitchen instead. i do hope they would improve.
