Couzie's Cafe & Catering619 Belmont St, New Westminster
Could be SO much better!
Submitted Saturday, April 9, 2011 - 1:21pm [Take-out]

Go to Couzies's Cafe regularly and it's very hit and miss.

Service: VERY POOR! The staff is super rude. Their customer service skills leave something to be desired. They are very reluctant to help their customers. It's almost like we are doing THEM a favor by ordering at the Cafe!

Food: Some days the food is amazing other days .. just average. It is quite pricey so you would think the quality would be consistent. They have recently started to water down their soup. It used to be thick and delicious. It's still good, but if I wanted to water my soup down, I would add water to it! I've never received a full portion of soup. It's always 3/4's to the top. I've had to go a size up just to get enough for lunch!

Why I go back: The food is good and it's close to work. However, I think once the dragon palace opens I will not return.

PS. The Cafe smells terrible. If you spend more than a minute there, your clothes will smell of greasy food.

Ocean Club, The100 Park Royal, #105, West Vancouver
Great for drinks and Appies, but not dinner
Submitted Friday, July 4, 2008 - 8:27pm [Dine in]

I have visited Ocean Club 4 times now. The first 3 times was for dinner and the last was for an engagement party were we all had drinks and appetizers

Food: The appetizers are great. The burger bumps, calamari, spring roles are all good dishes. However, the lamb chops, cod, tuna and other fish entrée’s are disappointing. First of all, the price is outrageous for these main courses and then when the finally arrive (slow service), it’s either too salty, too cold, or just simply bland. The deseart dishes are all very good though.

Ambiance: I can’t say enough about the ambiance in this place. It is beautiful and very modern. Every detail has been attended to. The patio could be more impressive, but it’s still decent.

Service: Pretty good. Can’t complain but nothing to rave over either.

Overall: Pricy, but a great place to lounge and enjoy the evening. They have live DJ’s some nights which is fun too. I will never return for a full dinner meal though.

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House777 Thurlow Street, Vancouver
Great location, but not the greatest overall
Submitted Friday, July 4, 2008 - 8:10pm [Dine in]

My boyfriend and I visited the restaurant a few weeks ago over the weekend. The place was packed and we were seated near the overflowing bar area.

Ambiance: The tables are positioned so closely together, that we were feeling very squished and there was absolutely NO privacy at all. The place is beautiful inside, but when you make reservations, ask to be seated upstairs or away from the bar area where people wait to be seated. It was very loud and crowded to say the least.

Food: My dish was great. We both ordered steak, medium. His was the New York and mine was the Sirloin. My boyfriend found his to be closer to the well done side and when he asked the waiter if it looked a bit well done, the waiter insisted that it was just the lighting. He kept saying New York steak was a “tough” steak and that’s the way it’s supposed to look. I think it was just a busy night and he didn’t want to take it back and cook it the way we ordered it. We were not impressed since the dish was $37.00. The best part about the menu was that they offered ½ portions on their desert menu. It was great because we wanted something sweet, but couldn’t finish a full order.

Service: Other than the fact that the waiter didn’t take the dish back, the service was pretty good.

Value: Our meal was about $130 after tax and tip. We each had a glass of red wine, steak and a ½ desert. We left full but I wouldn’t come back unless it was a special occasion, and even then, there are better places to eat in Vancouver for that price.

Azia990 Smithe Street, Vancouver
Once again, very good!
Submitted Friday, July 4, 2008 - 7:47pm [Dine in]

This is the second time visiting Azia. I figured it was so good for dine out, I would give it another shot. I went there with a group of 5 girls just before seeing a movie next door. We were seated right away and the waiter suggested a set meal for $25 each. He said that the chef would prepare the most popular dishes and that we were to trust him. He did not disappoint! Everything that we got, from the sushi to the ginger beef to the coconut desert dish was FAB! The waiter was excellent and even customized a martini for me at no extra charge.

I will definitely return here. The drink menu is priced very reasonably, the food is incredible, and the service is beyond outstanding.

Red Door Pan Asian Grill2996 Granville St, Vancouver
Over rated
Submitted Friday, July 4, 2008 - 7:35pm [Dine in]

I've been to red door three times now. Each time thinking I would enjoy it more. They have a few good dishes but I find their Pad Thai noodles a bit under cooked each time we go there. Service is great and it's good for appies and drinks. But I wouldn't go there for a full meal. There are other restaurants in the area that have better value and better food.

Aqua Riva200 Granville Street, Suite 30, Vancouver
worth a dine out visit.
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 11:02pm [Dine in]

I visited Aqua Riva for the second time last week. The first was on a random weekday in September (we used the entertainment book coupon) and the second was for their $25 dine out menu. I had the salad as an appetizer, salmon for my main course and apple and rhubarb crisp for dessert. Everything was good, but not great. The service was excellent both nights as was the ambiance. I find the food to be very expensive, yet nothing special. I would recommend it as a dine out option or if you use the entertainment book coupon, but I would never pay the regular price. We ordered a $44 bottle of red which was amazing. I can't remember the name but it was recommended by the waiter.

Sip Resto Lounge1117 Granville Street, Vancouver
great food
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 10:41pm [Dine in]

I visited Sip for their dine out menu. My friend and I shared the beef/chicken duo and blue crab cake/prawn duo appetizer. For our main course we each had the filet. It was made perfectly on the inside but we both found it little dry on the outside. We were extremely full after the appetizer and main course but we made room for the delicious chocolate mousse dessert. You will not leave this restaurant hungry and I highly recommend it. Be careful ordering a martini which is not on the menu though… they will charge you 6.25 for every shot they put in it. I ordered a lychee martini and was charged $12.50 for it! (that’s ½ the price of my entire meal.) The service was great. Even though they were extremely busy, our waitress was always available if we needed anything and the food was delivered a timely fashion.
