I used to like Fiction. I would take some friends there, and for a while, it was a nice place with okay staff who seemed to know something about the food and drinks served.
My last two visits to this restaurant are the last two I'll ever make there. I just found the service horrible with long waits for everything. Our table was too dark and it was difficult to read the menu. And I couldn't believe the rudeness of the servers.
The only saving grace is that the food quality is still fairly good. Overpriced for what it is, but decent quality. It just seems to me that there's a growing culture in there that unless youre one of the cool crowd (and I'm not too far out of that!!), a person needs to get ready for a heaping of attitude and an owner who really doesn't seem to give a crap about how downhill the place is going.
My last visit to the place was horrible for my date and I. When I got home I googled fiction vancouver restaurant and it was scary how familiar my experience was to some other reviews that turned up. Reading over these reviews on dinehere.ca I see that there's a trend in the direction of careless customer service. Those fiction people need to get their act together. a former gem in Kitsilano, now I just make sure my friends know to steer clear.
