Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
Awesome Greek!
Submitted Saturday, June 18, 2011 - 11:34pm [Dine in]

Well worth the line-ups. Abundant GOOD Greek at very inexpensive prices.

The Keftes are often dry but the roast lamb, all souvlaki's, mousaka are all awesome! Calimari is good too but abit salty.... I like salty typically.

Roast potatoes are nice and moist, not roasted uncovered which dries out the outer layer.

One of my favs.... but hate the line ups.

Mmmmmm

Koreana BBQ & Shabu Shabu Restaurant1163 Pinetree Way, #2048, Coquitlam
Diners Beware - This place shorted us on our orders similarly as stated by other reviewers!
Submitted Saturday, June 18, 2011 - 11:26pm [Dine in]

The ventilation in this Korean restaurant was very poor as the entire dining room was very smokey even though each table has a exhaust system. Prepare to wash your clothes upon departure of this place. Usually in the better Korean restaurants, the staff will assist in the settings to ensure everybody is using the exhaust fans and the there is higher air exchange rates in the HVAC system. I would not recommend this place for anybody with respiratory issues, asthmatics or young children.

We had a family dinner here order the BBQ Combo D for five people for $100 along with numerous other dishes. With the BBQ Combo D, we were shorted the organic salad, edamami and scallops. When we asked about the missing items, they said, they substituted the items with something else. Puzzled by this, we asked them what they substituted and they had to go back to get another staff member to come and then say they changed the menu and the items were not available.

We had a menu and it clearly stated ALL these items were a part of the Combo. Based upon the other reviews here, it seems there is a common practice of ripping off consumers here.

If you want good Korean food with good service that does not try to rip off patrons, I strongly suggest driving another 10 mins to Insadong at North Rd and Lougheed.

Asian Fusion........Left Wanting and Hungry
Submitted Wednesday, February 9, 2011 - 11:26pm [Dine in]

Similar to the below reviewer, we tried this place as part of DineOut although I was skeptical since we love authentic Chinese and Japanese cuisine and there are many asian fusion places ie Ginger or asian inspired menus ie Caredero's if you wanted to try something other than traditional asian fare.

Food presentation was great but the portions and taste was lacking.

I had prawns as starter and my wife had the ribs... both asian fusion twists of traditional chinese dishes... nothing memorable particularly if you are familar with the tastes of the original dishes.

The entree portions were very small... my wife and I both had the sable fish and it was smaller than the appies. This menu setup of $28 was not worth it!

Service was good and the place was busy during Dine Out..... Beer selection was decent. Kitchen was very clean and organized.

I suggest this place may be good if you are not familar with chinese or japanese cuisine (ie. you never been to Richmond nor izakaya and you eat at places where they give you a fortune cookie), you may be impressed but if like Dim Sum and you regular patronize good Chinese cuisine and Japanese Izakaya restaurants, there will be nothing here for you that you will be happy with as you may feel, they are just repackaging something familar but the taste is less flavorful.

When we left, we walked pass debated if we should have dined at Jolly's Indian Bistro as the food great.

Steveston Seafood House3951 Moncton Street, Richmond
Dissappointing Experience
Submitted Thursday, November 4, 2010 - 12:11am [Dine in]

Went for dinner on a Saturday night with another couple.

Of the group, my wife ordered the smoked Black Cod which she found very fishy. We are big fans of Black Cod and we were very dissappointed with this. So many other places to get GOOD black cod.

Another person and I ordered the fall feature set menu for $36 course dinner of which we both started with the crab/avocado salad which was very good. The livingstons seafood combo was just okay.

My colleague and I both ordered the steak as the entree for the fall set menu: one to be cooked medium and the other medium rare. Regretably the server mixed the dishes up upon presentation and I was stuck with the over done steak. The server offered to cook my colleagues steak to his liking but I was not offered a new steak nor any remedy at all so I was stuck with a tough chewy steak and the server simply said "oh, that was what the kitchen told which one was medium and the other was medium rare". If you get the only male server, ask to be switched to another section...

Here is a tip, put a toothpick or other indicator how each is cooked!! Although this is a seafood restaurant, should you have to accept a subpar steak at this price? We drove by a flagship Keg to get to this place.

The trio cheesecake dessert consisting of three teaspoon sized cheesecake sampling was not memorable.

Don't be fooled to thinking that seafood is exceptional here given the Steveston locale, you may be better served by going downtown or granville island (better food and scenery) or Richmond for much better value.

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The800 Columbia Street, New Westminster
Below Expectations
Submitted Tuesday, October 28, 2008 - 12:57am [Dine in]

Same Keg Menu here as other locations however the steak size portions appear to be smaller than other Kegs. Who else found this to be the case?

The facility is old, dark and poorly maintained and in need of a reno as this 'historic' building was not well setup for the restaurant. The main Restrooms are old and dirty and you have to go upstairs: not senior nor handicap friendly. The bar is also upstairs and I found few want to even go up for drinks there let alone dine there in isolation. Limited parking. If you want the Keg, this is definitely not the flagship local.

Servers seem to be Keg standard but tend to goof around near the kitchen. There seems to be frequent crashes there of servers. If you go here, you may wish to sit near the kitchen to keep an eye on their food handling and spills there.

Crave3941 Main St., Vancouver
Great Place
Submitted Thursday, August 7, 2008 - 10:35pm [Dine in]

Love the food here. Very reasonably priced creative menu. Excellent gormet burger (even though I don't typically like burgers).

Great breakfast menu and fusion dishes too. Drink menu could be larger but decent selection.

My only concern is the chef is opening 2 more restaurants currently so he may be running around other sites...

Salmon House2229 Folkestone Way, West Vancouver
Stay Away
Submitted Thursday, August 7, 2008 - 10:28pm [Dine in]

For the many years I lived in West Van, I still cannot justify going back to this place. They cater more to tourists and even during a standing reservation, we asked to add another seat to our group, they refused to accommodate.

Their flagship dishes are dry and they seem to rely upon their setting/view to draw in clientele.

There are many superior seafood restaurants well worth the patronage compared to this dated venue.

Fish House In Stanley Park, The8901 Stanley Park Drive, Vancouver
Great Location but Food is Wanting
Submitted Monday, December 24, 2007 - 1:19pm [Dine in]

This location is catered to visiting tourists but the food does not stand on it's own merit. IMO, this place relies upon it's great local to draw it's clientele rather than compete with other quality seafood restaurants in the city. The decor and ambiance are great but food not so much.

The menu selection is nothing extraordinary although it offered a unique marketing gimmick: Vancouver Aquarium recommended dishes as "Ocean Friendly". Again this politically correct gesture seems to miss the mark... would you consult the BC Veterinary Association, Calgary Stampede Foundation or PETA to recommend your next meat dish? Why would you eat seafood if you objected to sealife preservation?

Some of my group had high tea which was best described as “okay”. I had the Prime Rib burger at $15 which was a disappointment (no better than pub quality food) while another colleague had the smoked trout hash which was good. Oysters were good as was the wine selection.

My recommendation is have a few fresh oysters, soak up the sights and go to another seafood restaurant for your meal. Their sister restaurant The Cannery has the seafood formula right. Also check out Joe Fortes.

Good Food
Submitted Monday, November 26, 2007 - 10:24pm [Dine in]

Good calamari and great selection of salad dishes. Great for lunch. Desserts aren't that great as other 'franchise' restaurants in the area. Stay away from the dried out white chocolate brownie. Check out Joey's and Earls as well but of the three I rate this second as their menu is more unique.

Very Good Food
Submitted Monday, November 26, 2007 - 9:57pm [Dine in]

Ric's is a great restaurant particularly w/ the Nov promo of 3 courses for $27. Great calamari and prime rib. Dessert was fair. Drink selection w/ drafts was excellent. Been to d/t Edm, Calg, Whistler and Victoria....all are consistant. Good rooms for company meeting/functions. Good location. Awaiting for one to open in Van.

Joey1424 West Broadway, Vancouver
Good but with cautions
Submitted Thursday, October 18, 2007 - 12:04am [Dine in]

Food selection was consistant in quality as in other Joey's in Calgary, Edmonton and Coquitlam calimari was nicely done not too greasy nor over fried. Good QA. Good Caesar drink and cold Alex Keiths. Clean polished facilities & good lighting.
Ordered the black cod which was great nicely done and moist as it should be.

Loved the Bread pudding they had offered awhile back but they pulled it from their menu. Service was fair but seemed rushed even though the restaurant was only at 60-70% capacity. Worst part was the 'valet' service when you self park in their unmarked lot spaces and they demand $5 for holding your keys. They didn't seem to be very organized and even though they 'flashed' the car, they couldn't find it even though my headlights were blinking at them. Quite frankly I wouldn't trust your vehicle and contents to this 'contracted' service. Park on the street or in one of the 5 spots in the back.

Spoke to Cheryl - mgr to alert them of this service issue that they 'sub' out afterwards. The server had alerted the valet upon paying the bill but since I had parked in a spot near the front, no door service was offered. In contrast, Moxies at Broadway near Burrard will validate your parking charge from their building subtracting the parking from your meal bill whereas here, because the poor design of the parking area, they need to charge for the wasted space allocation.

Overall, it was a standard Joey's dining experience which is great but if you can't find parking due to the hassle of the valet, I would recommend going elsewhere ie. Earls on Fir or Broadway and Moxies which are more equipped for the driving patrons for the casual dining this establishment offers. Alternately if you live in the burbs, you may have the same dining at the busier and more established Coquitlam local.

CinCin Ristorante + Bar1154 Robson Street, Vancouver
Disappointed
Submitted Saturday, September 15, 2007 - 1:58am [Dine in]

Having been to Cincin's many times in the past, my wife and I looked forward to our anniversary dinner here however we were extremely disappointed by the overall experience.

The server treated us as 'uneducated tourists' after she couldn't provide me any details of their beer/ale selection. When I queried if they had any hefeweizen beer and who the brewer is, she replied by saying it was a local.

To start, we shared a caesar salad at $13, grilled squid at $15, scallops at $19 none of which was exceptional nor well portioned. The best dish of the starters was the caesar salad.

For the entre's, we both ordered the whole grilled seabass at $42 each as we were both very fond of the smoked sea bass which was a signature dish for Cincins. Regretably the smoked seabass is no longer available even though it is still pictured prominently on their website.

The whole grilled seabass dish was the most disappointing as it repeats it's flavoring of stuffed olives which was already presented in the olive tamponade served with the bread.

To their credit, the GM, Ed (formerly of Lumiere) offered us replacement entres but we declined.

The desserts we had were forgettable.

It is with regret that our favorite Italian restaurant has changed to unfortunately a lesser offering. Likewise, it is time to re-assess some of the other fine offerings in Vancouver.
