Will be back again
Submitted Friday, April 11, 2008 - 3:35pm [Dine in]

I've read some of the bad reviews and to say the least I am surprised. Then again, I've only been here once so far and bad experiences can happen at any time. Until it happens however, I will be back.
Went here with my parents and brother for a birthday. Our server was good, he wasn't super chatty as the family was catching up, but he was very helpful and timely. We had mussels and fries for the appy, both were excellent. I had some sort of a stuffed chicken special (can't remember exactly what it was) and it was fantastic! Everything on my plate was delicious. The rest of the family enjoyed their meals as well. The prices were reasonable for the food we got. Would definitely try it again, and hopefully continue to have good experiences.

I don't get why people like this place...
Submitted Friday, April 11, 2008 - 3:26pm [Dine in]

I've been here twice, will never go again.
First time I didn't know any better. I had a drink or two b/c I've heard how cheap the drinks are. They are cheap, however to call a lukewarm beer served in a tiny water glass a "pint" is rediculous. I also had an appetizer called the Trio. It's $7.95 and on the menu it sounds delicious. However, it equals about 3 tsp of food. The 'soy ginger sesame tuna' was two tiny pieces, the 'scallop lime ceviche' were two small scallops like the frozen kind you buy at safeway, and the 'mirin miso prawns' ended up being two small shrimp like the kind you'd find in a shrimp cocktail. I could not believe I spent nearly $8.00. Service was terrible, we didn't have enough chairs and although a waiter said he would get some more, he didn't come back. Drinks took forever, food took even longer, the bill wasn't split up properly, and no one came to check on us. You literally had to get out of your seat and flag someone down for service.
The second time I went I was FORCED into it. We sat down and looked over the menu. The A La Carte concept is decent but the quality of food is not worth the money. Let's say you want a steak, potatoes, and veggies. This could be around $32 at a half decent restaurant. With the A La Carte, if you want to get the Porterhouse steak, potatoes, and veggies, it works out to $37.85 and the food is barely mediocre. Plus, by the time it gets to the table it's usually cold. If I'm going to pay $40 for a steak dinner, I'll go to Bogart's or somewhere else where the food is really good and so is the service.
After looking at the menu and waiting around for 15 mins before anyone noticed we were there, we got up and went somewhere else. There are MUCH better choices in Vancouver than this.

Biercraft Tap and Tapas Bar1191 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Only been twice, want to try again
Submitted Tuesday, December 4, 2007 - 12:20pm [Dine in]

I've been to Stella's twice now and I'm on the fence regarding the food but I'll definitely be back to see which side of the fence I fall on. First off, their beer selection is fantastic and they're reasonably priced. Their Leffe Blond Ale is under $7 (I think) and I distinctly remember paying at least $8 at Seymour's Pub in N. Van.
Beer aside, the first time we went there, the service was good and the food was excellent. We absolutely loved it and decided to go back again. The 2nd time we went there our server was fantastic (nice and helpful without being annoying or in your face). The food was hit and miss. Some dishes were great, in fact most of them were great. The Ahi Tuna was so so (tasted kind of bland) and they had some new Satay dish which basically tasted like it had been drenched in peanut butter. The sauce was too strong and thick. We did mention this to the waitress and she apologized, she told us the satay dish was new on the menu and they were working out the kinks and they appreciated our feedback. She said she would be sure to mention it to the kitchen and would see what she could do for us. In the end, there were two dishes we didn't quite like but the server ended up removing the satay dish from the bill, as well as adding a dish for free that she ordered for us (that may bother some ppl but this dish was super tasty and free). The service definitely made up for the issue with the food (again I state that the rest of the dishes were good). I will definitely be back again, it is entirely possible that the tuna was simply not a great cut, and I just won't order the satay again. The rest of the food was good, beer was great, and I wish I could ask for that waitress every time b/c she was wonderful!

Zigz Urban Bistro2960 Main St., Vancouver
Comfort Food
Submitted Tuesday, December 4, 2007 - 11:58am [Dine in]

I've been to Zigz a few times now as a friend of mine lives on Main Street and we go there whenever we're looking for something tasty, casual and cheap. Some people may not like this place but those people were probably looking for a fancy hoity toity restaurant. This place is publike, very small (but I've never had a problem finding a seat for two or three), usually only has one server/bartender on staff so although you may wait a little longer than you'd like if the place is busy, but the server has always been friendly and as efficient as possible. We've never felt like we've had to wait a long time.
There are a few good beers on tap, and daily affordable drink specials and the food can be classified as warm, tasty, comfort, pub food and in my opinion is very good. I've had the chicken and mushroom penne (cheap and really tasty, with a good sized portion), the avocado and brie quesedilla (delicious, not super greasy, also fairly large), and the Lamb Stew (fantastic, mediocre sized portion, and only $8.95 or so). If you're in the area with a friend and are looking for a good place to grab a bite, this is definitely it. There is a small patio that's probably nice in the summer though I'm partial to this place in the winter months as the food seems to cater to those coming in from the cold. Love it, you should try it!

I've only been to Water St. Cafe twice and both times it was great. First time was with the bf for an anniversary dinner. Only complaint is that we failed to make reservations (our bad) and ended up with a table near the door which was a little chilly. But the service was great, the appy's were delicious, main course (had a chicken dish with Brie) was very good and filling, and dessert was great as well. 2nd time I was with my fam for a grad dinner and we reserved a table so we liked our seats, the service was good again (there when you needed them but not intrusive). Food was great again, I had gnocci which is very filling so I walked out of there completely satisfied. Desserts were again wonderful (looooove the blueberry pudding cake one). The thing I love about this place is that you get very good food, good service (other reviews may beg to differ but anyone can have ONE bad experience anywhere) and the prices are completely reasonable. The price of the pasta dishes are probably only slightly more than a place like Earls or Boston Pizza and the food is wayyyyyy better.
