Outstanding food
Submitted Monday, September 24, 2007 - 10:11am [Dine in]

We sure wished we had a place like this where we live in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. A wonderful, delicious, and healthy lunch (except for our indulgence of sharing a huge slice of outstanding carrot cake for dessert - not too sweet, very flavorful). My husband is a meat and potatoes eater and really enjoyed his (meatless) enchiladas calabacitas. Even though it was listed as a starter, the shrimp quesadillas were highly flavorful and very filling for an entree. Very eclectic decor and clientele (great people watching!).

Nu1661 Granville St, Vancouver
Very disappointing brunch
Submitted Monday, September 24, 2007 - 10:01am [Dine in]

This was our worst dining experience while visiting Vancouver this past weekend...Clearly not on par with the other restaurants where we dined. We had such high expectations from what we read/heard about Nu's brunch (and were told to not go there for any other meal than brunch). The menu seemed limited and very unexciting. The food quality was mediocre. My spinach prawn omlette had three small shrimp (hardly prawns) and perhaps three pieces of spinach, really only eggs! Breakfast botatoes were a bit greasy. Fruit salad was extremely plain - don't bother with it. Husband's flat iron steak was tasty and tender, but the bearnais was absent, and the "cultivated mushrooms" were nothing other than button mushrooms. Certainly not innovative! Service was quite attentive, and we sat by the windows with a lovely view (however, the chairs were so low relative to the table and very difficult to slide in towards the table - a bit uncomfortable!). Quite unimpressive and would never recommend.

La Buca4025 MacDonald Street, Vancouver
WOW - we loved this place
Submitted Monday, September 24, 2007 - 9:41am [Dine in]

Being first time visitors to Vancouver, we were initially lured to the big name (PRICEY) restaurants and fortunately happened upon Parkside. Being quite impressed by it, we had dinner at La Buca the next evening and were equally happy with our experience. Service was highly attentive; cozy, romantic atmosphere (we don't mind loud); and the food was outstanding. Heirloom tomato salad was quite fresh; the pumpkin risotta was creamy, seasonal, and perfect for a (half order) pasta course; and the slow-cooked veal cheeks with gorgonzola polenta were melt in your mouth tender. The veal scaloppine Saltimbocca was perfectly prepared, and the panna cotta with oranges was exceptional as other reviewers have commented on. We found that the wine list was interesting, extremely reasonably priced, and they do have some higher end off-list bottles available - just ask. Your city is blessed to have such wonderul restaurants.

Great food for what it is
Submitted Monday, September 24, 2007 - 9:20am [Dine in]

We went for lunch with the expectation of great fish & chips, and that is what we get - tasty cod fish and albeit slightly greasy chips (what do you expect?) and outstanding Asian-flavored slaw. My husband, who normally doesn't eat slaw, liked it. Very reasonably priced, fun, great locale right on the waterfront.
