Red Door Pan Asian Grill2996 Granville St, Vancouver
Great Birthday Dinner with Friends
Submitted Monday, November 1, 2010 - 9:18pm [Dine in]

I first found this restaurant when I drove by and smelled the simmering garlic. I've always wanted to try it and finally got the chance on my 35th birthday. I was a bit hesitant because of the strange reviews here which range from poor to fantastic, so I had to give them a chance and see for myself. We headed there with a group of 8. We found out the concept is a share idea where the plates come out without sides and is like a Tapas idea, or they have a share menu option which was $20 each for two people, so for $40 total you get 1 Appy, 2 Entrees and 2 Desserts. It was a smoking deal. We ordered green beans,chicken and noodles, ginger beef, and a curry creme brule. The food was fantastic with lots of flavour and huge portions. We both had enough for lunch the next day. The service was ok, except at dessert time, we ordered and the girl had to come back and let us know they didn't have enough creme brule so some had to sacrifice. Then she came back a few minutes later and told us the server dropped one, so then one of us had to order something else. Aside from that little hiccup, we had a very enjoyable evening and all 8 of us were pleased with our experience at the Red Door.

Biercraft Bistro3305 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Cozy, Comfortable, and Fantastic
Submitted Monday, November 1, 2010 - 9:05pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I went here tonight for our 5 year anniversary dinner. We just wanted something casual and have wanted to try this place for a while. They changed their name to something to do with beer. The layout right away looked pretty cool. It's like a pub/bar near the entrance and they have cozy more elegant tables in the inside. The Hostess, water glass filler guy, and waitress were great because they were down to earth and friendly unlike some of the a-holes you encounter at fancy Yaletown eateries. The waitress was very well versed in their extensive Beer selection. The best part is they had Kronenberg 1664 BLANC!!! I haven't had it in over a year since we were in Europe. This was awesome. We decided to try the Tapas and share. We ordered the Poutine, Pork Lettuce wraps, and Pastry coated baked Brie cheese. The poutine was good, just like it should be but the gravy had a fantastic creamy taste and a bit too salty in my girlfriends opinion. The lettuce wraps are served cold which threw the girlfriend as she was expecting hot pork. The flavour was very nice and it had a crisp fresh taste. Finally the brie was fantastic. The pastry was light with a balsamic sauce on the plate and a few bread rounds to put it on. Overall I was very impressed and will return again. I want to try the mussels which are supposed to be great. Give it a try, it's a great local eatery with average pricing for the neighborhood.

Subeez Cafe891 Homer Street, Vancouver
Small Portions, Great Service, Confusing Decor= OK
Submitted Wednesday, September 15, 2010 - 6:04pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and friend popped in for dinner and some drinks. My girlfriend ordered a Chicken Sandwich with Brie and my buddy had ribs while I had the Chorizo and Prawn Pasta. The Chicken sandwich was just mediocre and could have been made in a pub for a few dollars less, my buddy liked the ribs, and I loved the taste of the Pasta, except the portion was fairly small for pasta which costs almost nothing. This is the first time I have ordered pasta and actually was still hungry after finishing it. Our Hostess/Waitress was great and the service was fantastic, the portions were a bit too small for my liking and the price. The other huge disappointment was we ordered the Creme Brule and it was cold and runny, it didn't even set. They took it off the bill, but wouldn't heat it up and said that's how the Chef makes it, so don't order the crappy Creme Brule!!!!

Two Parrots Perch & Grill1202 Granville Street, Vancouver
Another Fantastic Night at the Two Parrots!!
Submitted Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 10:54pm [Dine in]

So it's been a while since we've been to the Two Parrots and this past Tuesday we headed back for some grub and beer before heading home to play some Lego Rockband!! It was a group of three of us. We ordered a pitcher of beer, their fantastic huge honey garlic wings,chicken strips, huge poutine, and Tuesdays special was $0.99 tacos which we ordered 4 of. Everything we ordered was absolutely fantastic! The chicken strips weren't greasy, the poutine tasted great. I don't have anything bad to say about this place. The waitress came by often and did a good job. The place still looks dingy inside, but don't let that fool you. Great value, great time had by all. This is by far my favorite pub place downtown. Thanks a million Two Parrots, see you again soon.

Yaletown Brewing Co1111 Mainland St., Vancouver
Not So Great Pizza, Not So Great Service, OK Value, Fantastic Location, Great Beer!
Submitted Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 10:47pm [Dine in]

So today my girlfriend and I decided to give the Yaletown Brewing Co. a try. It was a bit windy but the sun was out. We decided on lunch in the restaurant section. It wasn't very busy, as most of the customers were on the bar side watching Hockey. I love the location and the feel of the restaurant. The decor is awesome with lots of exposed brick, very Yaletown like. Our server was Chris a long haired guy. He took our drink orders fairly quickly (hefeweizen) The beer came and was great, but with not that many tables it took forever for him to come back and take our food order. We ordered a bbq pulled beef rib pizza and the same type of sandwich with Walla Walla onion rings for an extra $3. We also ordered some water with the food. The waiter didn't write any of this down and we joked he'd probably forget something. Sure enough after several passes we had to ask for our water again and finally it came. He was very polite and seemed nice, just didn't seem to pay much attention to his customers or their needs. Another table was seated shortly after us and he didn't pick up it was windy and we all had our jackets on as a sign to trim closed the big patio doors that were open as wide as they could be. As far as the food went. The bbq sandwich I loved, my girlfriend hated it, because when it says bbq and it's then bbq as well as Currey, you'd think they'd mention that on the menu! The pizza was thin crust with almost no toppings. I've had better pizza frozen from Safeway. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ORDERING PIZZA HERE! The onion rings were HUGE and some of the best I have ever had. The price was average and that's pretty much my take on this place.

Broadway Station Sushi1638 E. Broadway, #101, Vancouver
Decent Sushi, Crappy Take Out Service, Good Pricing
Submitted Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 9:10pm [Dine in]

I popped in here for lunch last week, and ordered it to go. I made my order and found the pricing to be quite good for the special I chose as there are several. There were several people in the restaurant having lunch and I noticed the young girl filling their waters and coming around which seems to be the opposite of what everyone has said. The part that pissed me off was it seemed because I had already paid and they got my money they didn't care if I would have liked a cup of tea or water while I waited for my meal which took about 10 minutes. Almost every sushi place I visit offers water or tea while you wait. Don't expect that here. Once I got back to work and dove in I was pleasantly surprised. The rolls had a good taste and I enjoyed one of the best miso soups I have ever had. I ate a spicy dynamite roll, as well as a dynamite and spicy tuna cone and it was all up to par. The crappy thing is it's the only sushi place in that area so you're kind of at their mercy.

Wings Restaurants & Pubs1162 Granville Street, Vancouver
Great Flavor Selection of Wings (Some from Anorexic Baby Chicks) and nothing Else
Submitted Wednesday, April 14, 2010 - 1:25pm [Dine in]

The best Wings I've had downtown have been at the Two Parrots Pub. To try something else and for Wing Wednesday (35 cent Wings) my girlfriend and I walked down the street to Wings. Our first visit we ordered a plate of Nachos which sucked to be polite. It was more a plate of chips and salsa with a few strands of random cheese and that was it. I quickly came to realize that this place is called Wings because that is the only thing their menu focuses on. We tried several flavors and the taste was top notch, now if only they would put more sauce on their wings instead of me having to ask for more, it coming in a small side dish cup and me having to pay extra! They have a huge selection of dry rubs and specialty sauces that can't be beat but some of the wings look quite small and feeble like they came from the runt of the litter chicks which is quite a shame since the flavor is so mouth watering. As far as the service goes, it was not too bad. We've gone in a few times more just for the wings and a beer and because my girlfriend likes to sit in there some afternoons and read a book by their fireplace and enjoy a beer. The waitresses seem to always be different. We've had one really friendly one on two occasions which seemed to show more interest and we were pleased with, but overall it is probably a 5 out of 10. The layout and cozy booth feeling inside is very relaxing. If it wasn't for all the great wing flavors I probably would never go back here. If you do go, try the Louisiana Sweet, Maui Lime, and Tora Tora Tora Tokyo!

Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
Great Value for Fair food except for the Cheese Balls which are better than in Greece
Submitted Wednesday, April 14, 2010 - 1:02pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I have gone to Stephos on several occasions for one thing- Their home made CHEESE BALLS! We have never waited in line there as it's not worth it. If there is no line up we'll pop in for a quick lunch. As I've stated they have the best Cheese Balls I have ever had which come with their garlic parmesan spread/dip. We went to Greece last year and IN Greece we could not find better Cheese Balls. If you ever go in you MUST try them. It's the first item on the Appetizer menu. As for everything else it seems to be hit and miss. I usually order a Spanakopita and some times it tastes fresh and great and other times like it was bought from the Costco freezer section. The Greek salad tastes like regular Greek salad. Overall it's middle-of-the-road food at a great value. I recommend this place for a quick lunch if there is NO line up!

Memphis Blues Barbeque House1342 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Great Tasting BBQ, Everything else So So.
Submitted Wednesday, April 14, 2010 - 12:43pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I took a drive down Commercial and found this BBQ place. We've heard good things about Memphis Blues so we decided to give it a try. We walked in and it looks like the set of The Dukes of Hazzard. It looked just like what you'd expect from a place called a BBQ house. The smell was mouth watering. You go up to the counter and order and pay as you would at McDonalds. Then you go find a seat and the guy behind the counter brings you the delicious meat. We ordered a sampler meat platter that contained BBQ'd Chicken, Bibs, Pulled Pork, Brisket, Sausage and sides of beans, fries, coleslaw, potato salad, and corn bread. The best things that stick out in my mind was the pulled pork, and brisket which was my favorite. Everything else tasted great too, but if you only choose one item pick the brisket. The platter was huge and looked like it was for a group of six for approx. $40. Great value and I felt meated out and had lunch for the next day. We had a great experience and will definitely be back when we're feeling carnivorous!

Milestone's Grill and Bar1109 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
Can't Go Wrong With Yaletown Milestones
Submitted Wednesday, April 14, 2010 - 12:29pm [Dine in]

I've been to this location several times and always have an overall great experience. We were greeted promptly and seated right away. This is the only place to get a Bellini! The service is always great. I especially like that one waiter Shane who I could see taking random glances at my girlfriends cleavage as he refilled her water. She's hot so it only makes sense and I would look too. He was a good waiter and kept the glasses filled and made sure we were taken care of as is the case with the service there every time. The food is always good, and if you find something you're unhappy with they apologize as if they've shamed their family and fix it without complaining. Also compared to other restaurants in Yaletown the value of your dollar is pretty damn good. If I'm looking for a meal where I know I don't want to be disappointed I head out to this Milestones. The only CON, is they don't serve their yummy pizzas here as there is no wood burning pizza oven.

Honjin Sushi138 Davie Street, Vancouver
Nothing Special Sushi
Submitted Tuesday, April 13, 2010 - 9:14pm [Dine in]

I friend of mine kept telling me about Honjin Sushi, and how great it is and that the Canucks and all these celebs eat there. She took me to Honjin for a birthday lunch. First the place has a clean nice looking interior but we had to wait quite a while to get seated at the bar. I ordered a couple of rolls and cones. When the rolls came they were fairly small and tasted just ok. When I compared the prices to the food we got, it wasn't worth it. Just because the address says Yaletown, and it's across from Urban Fare dosen't mean it's some upscale eatery, especially since there's about 2 Sushi restaurants per block down here. If you read this, go and try Juno on Davie and Seymour instead for the best quality sushi! The only claim to fame this place has is a picture of Schwarzenegger behind the front desk. Don't waste your money and taste buds here.

Juno Vancouver Sushi Bistro572 Davie Street, Vancouver
Fantastic Quality among many Cheaper Sushi Restaurants
Submitted Tuesday, April 13, 2010 - 8:57pm [Dine in]

I was strolling by and popped in for lunch. It wasn't very busy and I started chatting up the Chef who was also the owner. Seems like a really nice guy. The quality of the food was top notch! This guy is a sushi artist. This is the choice you have to make. Juno is pressed in between several other sushi places that have better dollar value and still taste good. So do you want lots of good food at cheap prices or, not as much excellent food at slightly higher prices? Juno is a much higher quality restaurant to go out to for a nice dinner instead of a quick lunch like the places next door. But do yourselves a favor and stop in to try some really amazing and super fresh food prepared beautifully. Thanks Juno, see you soon!

Glowbal Grill and Satay Bar1079 Mainland Street, Vancouver
Great Food at Yaletown Prices- Best Dessert!
Submitted Tuesday, April 13, 2010 - 8:39pm [Dine in]

The little lady and I decided to go for a bite to eat the other night to support the charity drive for AIDS at participating restaurants. We decided on Glowbal as we've heard great things and all the celebs seem to like it, so it must be good, right??? Anyway the place has a very cozy warm feel. The waiters were friendly and served us promptly. We ordered some red wine which was good, but overpriced like in any restaurant. I decided to try the satays so I could have a bit of everything. I tried the Satay Coconut Chicken, Scallop, Ahi Tuna, Kobe Meatball and an order of Poutine to share. The Ahi Tuna had a crispy outer layer and was absolutely awesome. The coconut chicken just tasted like chicken on a stick. The meatball was good as well as the scallop. My girlfriend loved the poutine gravy, I thought it was just ok. The best part of the evening was the dessert the waiter recommended. It was a chocolate bread pudding thing served hot/baked with vanilla/Baileys sauce and whip cream. SHARE one, it's super rich, but the best thing there I bet. Overall we had a great evening and it was for charity too. Didn't see any celebs though.

After reading the article in the paper over Earls Olympic practices, I have now officially BOYCOTTED them! I will never eat at Earls again! How dare they gouge the locals in order to reap more Olympic cash! Now that the tourists are gone, all Earls is left with are the pissed off locals. Thank you Milestones for your decent and practical tactics during the Olympics. You will see me soon enjoying a Bellini on your patio!

Yamato Sushi616 Davie St, Vancouver
Great Sushi at Cheap Prices
Submitted Tuesday, April 13, 2010 - 7:27pm [Dine in]

I live about 2 blocks from this place and decided I would try every Sushi restaurant heading from East to West on Davie St. I tried the one behind the roundhouse once and it was just ok and overpriced. Then I heard some gross things about the Sushi place across from the Canada Line stop about them using leftover food (heard it third hand, so I can't confirm it) I then one day tried Yamato Sushi. It was great quality sushi for a good price. The turnover in this place is crazy. The seating area is the size of a closet so many people just order it to go and pick it up. There are pics all over the walls of their specialty rolls which normally would scream Oh No! But this really works well because of the varied types of rolls. The cones are delicious, my favorite Spicy Tuna Roll is at this place. The service is polite, and prompt. I also like any place that offers a cup of tea while I wait for my food to go. I only have good things to say about this place. My one and only negative is at the front door, there is a mail slot by the ground and it is stuffed with paper to keep rodents out I would guess, but makes the place look cheap and dirty. Give this place a try. I know I get great food and service here so I haven't made it any farther West than this restaurant.
