Boathouse Restaurant, The1795 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
Dissapointing
Submitted Monday, January 19, 2009 - 5:25pm [Dine in]

This is the third Boathouse I've been to now, and the worst. While the service was reasonably good considering how busy the place was, the food wasn't up to scratch.

I had the dine-out menu of seafood chowder, seafood pasta, and key lime pie. The chowder was tasty, no problem there. The pasta, however, was mostly bland, and the clams in it were chewy when they weren't crunchy with sand. The key lime pie was the most dissapointing. I had it two years ago during dine-out at the horseshoe bay boathouse and remembered it fondly. This was not the same key lime pie. Nearly-impenetrable, thick, dry, and flavorless crust encased overly gooey not-quite-set jell-o pudding interior. My wife's cheesecake was good, though. If you're going, definitely have that.

The Boathouse is nice enough, but with all the choices we have here in Vancouver, I see no reason to visit it again.

Sake Maki1414 Commercial Dr., Vancouver
Great Sushi
Submitted Friday, November 28, 2008 - 12:48pm [Dine in]

We finally made it to Sake Maki, and we were glad we did.

The restaurant is small, but nicely decorated. I wish it had a real sushi bar so we could watch the chef make his crazy rolls.

While I tend to prefer traditional sushi, the over-the-top chef's rolls are quite impressive. Yeah, they're american-style, full of fried bits, and have chili sauce glooped all over them, but they're a sight to behold.

Luckily, the chef also excels at more traditional favorites. The tekka maki was excellent and we enjoyed a delicious selection of nigiri. The rice was perfect!

The service was quick and friendly. We left fat and happy, and only dropped about 25 bucks total. So it's quality for value. A new favorite.

Good time at Lime
Submitted Friday, November 28, 2008 - 11:54am [Dine in]

We've been to Lime a couple times now, and have enjoyed it each time. It's a great place to go for a drink, and the food is tasty as well.

Both times we went they had the same jazz combo playing, which was quite enjoyable. The decor is also great, and the servers are friendly.

The food is pricy, compared to your average sushi joint, but average this is not. We enjoyed some unique and delicious rolls as well as excellent nigiri.

I would recommend it for anyone looking for a nice place to relax with some friends, enjoy some music, and eat some quality food.
