Overrated.
Submitted Thursday, June 21, 2007 - 4:41am [Dine in]

First off, let me say that the ambiance is fairly average, leaning towards the poor side. The TVs are at a weird angle that you can't see well from any table, and the tables are ALWAYS dirty. It only takes two minutes to clean a table!
The service is always painfully average; there is one employee who's been there for a while and yet always seems clueless. They tend to mess up simple things, like the drink you want. Oy.
The food is pretty good, nothing special. The chicken fingers taste like they've been sitting in a freezer for too long. The poutine is AWESOME, if you get it to go and let it sit for a few minutes. Deep fried chocolate bars are also a very, very guilty pleasure.
It's always a long wait, though, and it's ridiculously over priced for the quality. It's like slow, expensive fast food. I'd call this one a miss, which is too bad, because it's an awesome idea.

Locus, The4121 Main Street, Vancouver
Doesn't live up to the hype.
Submitted Thursday, June 21, 2007 - 4:25am [Dine in]

I'd heard nothing but good things about Locus before I went here, and I was pretty disappointed.
Our service was okay at best, although our food came back wrong and we couldn't apparently get it customized to suit our tastes (as in, we asked for no tomato and ended up with it, twice). We had a large group and were put in tables literally across the restaurant from each other, despite making a reservation.
The food was NOT up to the hype at all. It was on the poor side of average, and we waited a fairly long time for it.
All in all, not impressed. I'm not going back.

Main, The4210 Main St., Vancouver
The place to go when there's nowhere else.

The Main was always our place to fall back on - nowhere better to go? Can't decide? Go to the Main.
The food is pretty good, nothing spectacular but it's hard to go wrong (although the pizza's not so great). Best thing to get is the four dips and pita, yum! Pretty much everything there is good, nothing really outshines anything else, although I'm a big fan of the lamb souvlaki.
The service has always been average - nice, usually a little busy to be bothered with small talk, nothing special either way. Once, the manager served us, and he was really friendly and accommodating.
Overall, a solid place to go for a casual meal.

Grind & Gallery Coffee Bar, The4124 Main Street, Vancouver
Average drinks, awesome hang out.
Submitted Thursday, June 21, 2007 - 4:15am [Dine in]

The beauty of the Grind isn't so much that it offers great food or service, but that it's a nice 24 hour alternative to Denny's.
The coffee's alright, I highly recommend the Peach Jasmine Cool Tea thing, it's delicious. The service is pretty average, sometimes if you come in really late they'll give you good deals and whatnot. They're usually friendly and outgoing.
It's definetly the place to go for an all-night study session or to catch up with an old friend.

Five Point, The3124 Main St., Vancouver
Mediocre...at best.
Submitted Thursday, June 21, 2007 - 4:11am [Dine in]

I'd always heard about this place, so finally decided to try it one day. The ambiance is alright...tables are a little close together and it's loud, but decent.

The server seemed distracted, though she didn't have many tables. She didn't check up on the food after we'd gotten it, and didn't seem very friendly. She wasn't bad, per se, but not very attentive.

The food took over half an hour, and considering it was lunch time, we were pretty annoyed. When it finally arrived, it was average and kind of dry. My burger was fairly flavourless, as was everyone else's food.

Seems like the place to go for a beer or to watch the game, but skip the food.

Beautiful view, awesome food!
Submitted Thursday, June 21, 2007 - 4:02am [Dine in]

My boyfriend and I went there one night and managed to get in without reservations. We had a beautiful table by the window overlooking the city, though it was near a very, VERY loud party who ignored several requests from the waiters to quiet down. It didn't bother us much, but lots of tables around us requested to be moved and I was surprised that the loud party was allowed to stay after that.

The waitress was really friendly and outgoing, more so than I would have expected at a high class resteraunt, but in the best way. I knocked an entire glass of water over and she just laughed it off, rather than rolling her eyes at me.

The food was outstanding - everything tasted fresh, and was perfectly cooked. What stands out most in my memory was the salmon, deliciously seasoned and again, very fresh.

This is an outstanding place to go for a romantic dinner or a celebration.

Perfect for take out.
Submitted Thursday, June 21, 2007 - 3:57am [Dine in]

My roommate is a complete meat freak, so when we moved into the neighborhood it was the first real resteraunt we went to.

The service was fairly average, nothing bad but not much to rave about since they were behind a counter. It was pretty busy, but we called ahead and when we got there five minutes later, everything was ready to go.

The ribs she got were mediocre; nothing exceptional for the hype or the price. The beef brisket sandwich, however, was delicious. It's simple and yet so good. Personally, I love the beans and slaw and would order them on their own if they weren't so expensive.

The food is really good, but a little pricey for what it is.

The best bang for your buck!

We got in at about quarter to two, while their lunch service closes at 2:30. The host didn't seem too happy to have new customers, but we were seated and it was not at ALL busy.

The ambiance was alright, the view was pretty nice for the area and direction it's facing and the BBQ pit in the tables was cool. Our server was not overly friendly, but wasn't rude, just seemed to be in a rush (probably because it was so close to closing).

The menu was fairly extensive for a lunch menu, and had a lot of really solid choices. It's kind of odd that you order sushi per piece, but I guess it makes sense being an all you can eat place.

Everything we ordered came within five minutes, and the food was AMAZING. The sashimi was so fresh, and the Korean beef barbeque was delicious. I've been craving it ever since. Everything was high quality and it's hard to believe that they make it so well, considering it's all you can eat and is probably ordered in large quantities.

Overall, I had a great time and was so impressed with the food. I've been raving about it to my friends since I've been and can't wait to go back!
