Rivers Reach Pub320 6th St., New Westminster
Just not worth it
Submitted Friday, November 25, 2011 - 2:01pm [Dine in]

It’s been 6 years now coming to the Rivers Reach pub. The food has been great with a good price and has kept me coming back. Everything on the food menu is done well.

Regarding drinks, do not bother ordering anything other than bottled beverages. The last 7 out of 8 mixed drinks have been terrible. They are a colossal waste of money.

The pub used to be offices and the remaining décor is pleasant. It along with the food has kept me going back.

The service however, has made the rest almost void. Customer loyalty is meaningless here. The hostesses have attitude problems, and tipping significantly for years hasn’t helped. The service is excessively slow, and waiving down someone who isn’t your server gets you attitude. The only way to get service is to physically get up and go find them.

Now my interest in this place as all but vanished. With an occasional exception, going here is just not worth it.

Met Bar & Grill, The411 Columbia Street, New Westminster
Bad experience.
Submitted Thursday, November 17, 2011 - 5:49am [Dine in]

Hungry for beef dip, I entered the Met Bar & Grill. Immediately as I sat down I was met with hostility. Incidentally, I am a disabled minority and am not sure which was met with anger.

I was asked to take off my corrective eye gear, for which I have a doctors note stating I need them at all times, in order for him to “see that you[I] won’t cause any trouble.”

I didn’t ask for alcohol despite it being a bar and grill. I have never caused trouble in any other bar or club so therefore he had no reason to suspect the worse of me.

Narrowing down causes for hostility, this leaves only two immediate possibilities: prejudice against my corrective eye wear, and racism.

I removed my corrective eye wear for him and is unclear to my why I stayed. Possibly to prove I had no hostility. Possibly because I had been craving beef dip and was hungry.

Now to comment on the food: it was edible but over priced for what it was.

Aside from the person who showed unnecessary hostility, the food came prompt and the chefs seem on the ball.

The ambiance was average. Nothing stood out, but nothing was bad.
