I went here with a group of 6 on a Wednesday night. We sat outside on the patio after the waitress struggled to put our table together. No one came to serve us after 15 minutes, so one of our party got the menus himself. We finally ordered our drinks and then again it was about 15 minutes wait. After placing our food order, we waited an HOUR to get our appetizers, which were only about 4 dishes. One was zucchini cakes, which should have been zucchini "cake" as it only came with one. Finally, about 20 minutes later our entrees came. My salad was mediocre at best and the other food was hit and miss. One person didn't even touch their salad after seeing that it had been sitting so long it had completely wilted. By this time the manager had come out and we said that everything was NOT fine and he offered to buy a round of drinks which we didn't want. When our bill came we had been charged 15% grat. for our "large party" which was stated no where on the menu and in my experience is usually for a party of at least 8. During this conversation we were blamed for not realizing that they had a very large party inside and that we should have known the service would be slow. They eventually took off 15% of the food to make up for everything, but left the 15% grat. charge. Pretty much the worst restaurant experience ever!

I had planned to try Vintropolis, but I was glad we had to come here instead. Lots of selection and variety. I think we must have ordered almost everything on the menu and some twice. The only miss was the eggplant dish. Loved that they had Joie wine on the menu and some good local bottles. The desserts were also delicious and the prices are very reasonable. (Just ignore some of the "art" on the walls.) Had a great time and all five of us loved it. That's no mean feat!

I went to this restaurant having read great things and was a little disappointed and definitely surprised by the prices. There were tons of specials not on the menu (way too many to remember). Also, there were NO vegetables on the menu other than two veg. rolls. Japanese food has amazing veg. dishes, but there were none. I had to ask for a salad and some edamame which weren't listed. My husband wanted some vegetables to balance all the protein, but the server couldn't recommend anything. The meat and seafood dishes were very creative and beautifully presented, but I left hungry and with a sizable addition to my Visa bill.

Not worth it!

I had read good things about this restaurant and while in the neighborhood I saw that there were some interesting things on the menu, so I decided to go for my anniversary. There were only two salads on the menu which I think is a bit ridiculous in summer on the west coast. I ordered the warm chanterelle salad as it sounded delicious. This was the first of several dishes that were sold out (as I heard from the servers at the two tables close by.) That's fine, but they replaced it with sweetbreads which as a vegetarian are not an option. I had to have the organic greens and let me say that if I have to see another plate or menu with a salad of spring greens and nothing else, I'm going to lose it. They did give us a delicious gazpacho to make up for it, so that was fine. The "daily vegetarian creation " turned out to to be any fine dining vegetarian's nightmare -mushroom risotto. I was educated about food from an early age and love cooking and good restaurants, however, I have not studied cooking nor trained as a chef, but I expect that if you have and if you work at a restaurant of this calibre, you should be able to make something more impressive than what is basically an upscale version of rice with mushroom soup. The desserts were fine, but nothing great. My husband liked his duck, but the presentation was unattractive. Regarding the service, it ranged from too attentive to unattentive and our server's command of the English language was questionable and difficult to understand. Another overrated, over hyped restaurant .

Is it too much to ask for a decent vegetarian restaurant in what is supposed to be the healthiest city in Canada? This restaurant makes you feel like you are back eating in the 1970s. Who wants sunflower seeds sprinkled on their salad? Who thinks everyone likes mango dressing? Who likes lukewarm water in plastic cups? It tastes like plastic!! I have had better veggie burgers at burger joints and if a vegetarian restaurant can't make a good one, who can? I love the creativity of the writing on the menu, but I think someone needs to point out to the owners that it is 2007 and vegetarian food has changed since their mom was cooking Veggie Surprise Noodles with Cat Stevens on the stereo.

Shouldn't be Public
Submitted Monday, July 2, 2007 - 11:30pm [Dine in]

I have been to Public several times with varying degrees of success, but I am now done with it completely. The last time I went, I was happy to see that they had changed the menu after the previous time I had gone and commented on how I thought it was time for a change in the menu. The happiness was fleeting. I saw there were less vegetarian options than before, but they had added in fine print that tofu could be substituted for any of the protein in about five of the larger plates. You can't just swap meat for tofu and expect the dish to work. I decided on the tomato and bocconcini salad and was presented with two WHOLE, BLANCHED tomatoes with the stems on and some sliced bocconcini. Nobody eats a plain blanched tomato! Cutting into it, the juice went everywhere, turning the pesto into a puddle of green, watery soup. The flavour of the tomato was totally lost and the dish looked ridiculous. This was a perfect example of a restaurant trying too hard to be different. Do NOT order this dish if you decide to take your chances at this restaurant! Don't get me started on the "art" they put on their walls. Just focus on having good food, not trying to sell the work of wanna-be artists that never will be.
I wish this restaurant had never gone "public".
