Great Food but bring a pad & paper for communication!

I've been to Bin 941 on several occasions and have always been impressed with the food and service. This visit was no exception. What was different, though was the music volume. Good music at a decent volume is great when played through a high-end sound system. (a good example of this is Bistro Sakana, down in Yaletown) Bin's volume was over the top, though. I literally had to shout at my partner to be heard and even then I don't think she could hear me. I certainly could not hear her! A great place if you have no desire for any communication other than snuggling! Still the food was awesome! I just wish they would turn the tunes down a notch or so.

Yes, we've all heard about what a great seafood restaurant "C" is. Perhaps it's time to start referring to their greatness in the past tense! My girlfriend and I were extremely disappointed with our recent dining experience here, and ultimately left wondering how all the hype and awards were ever possibly generated. Our dining experience was mediocre to say the least but with a price tag that suggested it should have been much much more. We both had the lobster for our main course; it tasted like it had been taken directly out of a tub of pre-cooked/pre-shucked from Lobster Man. Simple flavours are fine but @ $45.00 one expects a bit more than this. Our appetizers were similiar, fresh but completely lacking in culinary expertise. Display alone is not enough! I honestly hoped that dessert would allow me to leave on a more positive note. Again, complete dissapointment! @ $11.00 the date pudding I had was nothing more than a final kick in the pants! Come on "C", don't claim to be what you are quite evidently not.
