Foggy Dew Irish Pub7311 Westminister Hwy, Richmond
First time - we'll come back
Submitted Sunday, August 5, 2007 - 9:29pm [Dine in]

Our first time at this pub - service was excellent apart from a bit of slowness coming out to the patio. Good food -- we had 3 different entrees, and no complaints about any of them. Pub food, not gourment, but well cooked, nicely plated, served quickly and hot. Limited but adequate wine menu, seem able to make any cocktail imaginable!

Parking is a problem - we didn't have any trouble on a long weekend Sunday, but I think it could be tough during the working week. There is no parking lot other than that attached to the hotel above.

Wheelchair access - no power doors (I suggested it to the manager, who said he'd never thought of it but it was a good idea and he'd pass it on to the owner). Washrooms are around the corner and down the hall -- a bit peculiar but workable.

We'll try it again.

White Spot5367 West Boulevard, Vancouver
Good Family Restaurant (of course!)
Submitted Sunday, August 5, 2007 - 1:09am [Dine in]

We've been coming here for years and years. The food is always reliable, and the service is (usually) excellent (there have been a few staff who needed training!).

The menu is traditional White Spot, portions are good sizes, and the service is usually quick.

There are all the usual White Spot problems of noisy kids, long lineups at the "official" meal times (we usually go early to avoid that problem since we can only use 2-3 tables with our wheelchair).

I really dislike not being able to reserve when there's a good reason (like a wheelchair).

Objections - no power doors to get in; washrroms while clean are just NOT wheelchair friendly. It's taken more than a year before a loose toilet seat was fixed (we told them about it several times).

Despite this, it's one of our "old reliable" eateries -- we can bring guests here and know we'll get a good solid "Vancouver" meal.

Memphis Blues Barbeque House1342 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
First time - not bad!
Submitted Sunday, August 5, 2007 - 1:04am [Dine in]

Our first time at a Memphis Blues -- great food, great waiters (even if you do have to serve yourself!). The decor is nothing to write home about, but that's ok! The washrooms could use improving from a wheelchair access standpoint.

The food -- well!! We had a Memphis Feast for 4 of us, and had leftovers for the next 2 days' of snacks! I didn't like everything, but that's my taste not the food's fault. I got the Feast so we'd known what to order next time -- pulled pork for sure, chicken (that's no game hen!), and the ribs.

The prices are reasonable, but the wine prices are outrageous - we'll stick to beer and pop.

We'll go again for sure!

Tatlows Broiler Bar2741 West 4th Ave, Vancouver
Inconsistent Service, good food
Submitted Sunday, August 5, 2007 - 12:52am [Dine in]

This is the third time we've eaten here. All 3 times the food was good, well prepared, good tasting - the Island Lamb is superb! - but the service has varied from poor to (this time) excellent! It does, of course, vary with the number of people, but this time there were two waitresses and only 3 tables of customers (including us) so no problems.

I had the Triple A steak and prawns - only 3 prawns, and served on top of the vegetable (or in my case, salad). Nice bite to the gravy. I'd recommend you ask for one step less well done than you want!

Chocolate cake dessert was excellent - fresh, tasty, and I'm sure we were given an extra portion because we had said we 3 would share the one piece. Thanks, Vanessa!

If Tatlow's could make their service more consistent, they'd get a lot more dinner crowd, I think.

We'll be back!
