I love heading to George with my girlfriends for a few well made cocktails. The room is hip and has great energy to it. It can get a little crowded on the weekends and older men seem to hang out there looking for some action but that would be the only negative I can think of. The owners are great and always make us feel like we are very special when we go. I noticed that it isn't just us getting the attention as they seem to make an effort to make everyone feel that way. The mumbai sling is my favourite cocktail and on nights when it isnt to busy I like to sit at the bar and watch the masters at work. Great production of great cocktails. I didnt give the food a high score because I haven't eaten there but I did notice that people who did order food looked happy.

I went to Rare with my boyfriend for Dine Out Vancouver after hearing about it from friends who are regulars there. I can see why they are fans of the place. I was a bit surprised by the simplicity of the room when I first walked in but after I was sat and a complimentary starter was put in front of us I began to settle in and feel cozy. Simple but well presented decor, the chairs are so comfortable that I didn't want to get up to leave. Service is polished and professional and all of our needs were met from having our napkin refolded after I got up to use the ladies room to our ice water topped off with out every having to ask. The braised ribs that I had for my entree melted in my mouth and the dessert of chocolate many ways brought a smile to my face that I still have. I am hoping my boyfriend was smart enough to make a reservation for Valentine's there. I can't wait to return.
