Creekside Restaurant1335 Howe Street, Vancouver
Quite atrocious breakfast
Submitted Thursday, March 15, 2007 - 10:34pm [Dine in]

We were in a rush and tried the hotel restaurant for bacon and egg type breakfast.
Pretty bad stuff..Even my Dad who was a travelling salesman for 40 years was taken aback.
Juice choice was grapefruit or orange. It was Tang or a similar instant product.
Eggs were cooked fine.
Hashbrowns were some very strange tasting prepackaged product.
Bacon was fine.
Ham was some thinly sliced product that looked to be a loaf of compressed ham bits or something.
Toast was a typical generic bread with what tasted like a margarine type product.
Service was fine and the ambiance of the room was fine.
This breakfast cost 11 bucks.

Relish888 Nelson St., Vancouver
Submitted Thursday, March 15, 2007 - 9:37pm [Dine in]

Our first visit here after reading these reviews was flawless.
In the Vancouver dining out experience, this is high praise indeed.

Service was friendly, fast, attentive without being irritating, and excellent.
Ambiance is very nice without techno-garbage music like a lot of places these days.
All 3 meals were excellent. Inventive, perfectly prepared and very decent serving size.
This place is a keeper and hopefully can maintain this high level.

Feenie's2563 W Broadway, Vancouver
Very good again
Submitted Thursday, March 15, 2007 - 9:10pm [Dine in]

We've been here 4 times in a span of 2 years.
Fortunately, unlike other reviewers, each time all has been very good to excellent.
Perhaps we've been lucky.?

Staff has been friendly, service & food very good to excellent.

Some complain it is too crowded..huh? Most busy restaurants are.
The bar area and main eating area are not large, so yes, it will seem more crowded than the Keg.
Ambiance is not Feenie's strong suit, although the bar area is kind of 'red'.....and it is pretty noisy in there..
The techno pop music is really irritating for sure. I'm sure a large percentage of customers are getting on in years and not 18. I'm a professional musician and the music in there is bloody awful.

I did notice that the Apple Galette was sub par from previous experience and the salad with goat cheese was pretty much just a wack of lettuce. The Sphagettini dish was tasty, but I thought they could have thrown on a bit more seafood..3 shrimps and a scallop???
After all noodles are cheap like borscht..actually, cheaper these days, and this place is not cheap.
The rest of our meals on a Tuesday evening were excellent.

Keep in mind, Chef Feenie is not actually cooking for you, and doesn't seem to be on this side much. I think if you want your gastromical mind blown, go next door to Lumiere.
I'm afraid the 'underchefs' on the cheap side are not always so great.
In the big picture of things, there are a 'few' other restaurants in Vancouver that are not so hyped and stand on equal & better ground for cuisine.

Let's face it, we do not have the genius & integrity of a Batali in town..(not that I've found anyway)

Also, the furniture is slowly getting shabby and there is a huge grease spot at head level on the wall at the first table. This is pretty unappatizing

All in all, I would say, go there with a plump wallet, do NOT order
fast food stuff, get something fancy, hope it's a good night for the underchefs & staff (like any restaurant) and enjoy.

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The4510 Still Creek Avenue, Burnaby
Generic & Overpriced
Submitted Thursday, March 15, 2007 - 4:51pm [Dine in]

This would be pretty much a typical Keg.

They wouldn't take reservations for a party of 10 and then made us wait 45 minutes..Meanwhile upon looking in the restaurant they could easily have seated us. Of course they would love you to spend a fortune in the bar while waiting.Unfortunately the ploy didn't work as this was largely a non boozing group.

The menu at the Keg is of very Generic and way overpriced.
Lots of meat items at 22 bucks and up.Not much else.
Quality of the food served was acceptable and service was fine.

If you want fine dining go somewhere else. For the kind of money they charge, you could eat like a King/Queen elsewhere.

If your idea of a good time is lousy bread, a slab of beef and a baked potato with really expensive booze you'll be happy here.

Penny Farthing Olde English Pub, The2228 Oak Bay Ave, Victoria
Very excellent British Pub
Submitted Monday, March 5, 2007 - 5:19pm [Dine in]

I took some vactioning relatives here on a hot Monday in August 06. This pub was recommended to us by the very English folks that run the Dreemskerry.
They were headed off there themselves for the Monday 2 for 1 fish and chips, so we figured it was worth a try.
Zero disappointment here for a change.
The fish and chips were excellent..The real deal, not that overpriced smakk portioned kitschy junk you get in Vancouver.
This is a very cool dark wood English type pub atmosphere, and we will be back there in a flash next trip to Victoria.
