Main, The4210 Main St., Vancouver
Great Greek Food
Submitted Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 12:22pm [Dine in]

We dined here last night:

My wife and I walked in right at opening on a Tuesday at 5pm. Sat at the bar and had a wine and beer in our hands with in 5 minutes. Having never been here before we started off with an appy - if it was good we would order another. The garlic prawns came out and they were very good! So we order the Spanokopita next... it came out - homemade and better than any we had ever eaten before including the ones we made at home.

We had stopped in to jusy try and appy, have adrink and split ...but the appys were so good we decided to stay and share the Lamb Shoulder dinner - WOW...the lamb was falling off the bone very tasty along with melt in your mouth potatoes and a very fresh greek salad with some of the best feta I have ever tasted. My wife made a good point as we were eating - this is not salted down greek food which you some times find out there - it was fresh and very well prepared all of the items you could actually taste their individual flavours!!

We actualy liked the Greek salad so much we ordered a full order of it to go which we will be enjoying tonight at home with our dinner.

Now here is the best part. We had 1 beer, 2 glasses of white wine, a great bottle of red Cabernet - 2 appys and a main along with a togo salad all for????...even with our new wonderfull HST tax for ......ready???
$100 -Really?? - REALLY!!!

They do need to put Blaze's Beans in their Caesar drink as I don't like Asparagus...but I think the bar manager there is thinking of doing it now.

Can't wait to go back and try some of the other items on the menu. Go try it!!

Les Faux Bourgeois Bistro663 E 15th Ave, Vancouver
Great French Fare - traditional
Submitted Friday, August 13, 2010 - 9:36am [Dine in]

We have been to this place way too many times now and I can't beleive we have not written about it yet.

So here we go.

It has been consistently great since our first visit over a year ago. Every dish they make is perfectly done and decent portions. From a solid Fremch Onion soup - better than what I make - and salads and pates that take you back to a small town in France this is a awesome experience. Moules Frites are to die for - the best fries in town. The mains are solid from lamb to the steak and even the portebello mushroom dish. Wine list is decent and nothing in this place is over priced like so many other places in this category all very reasonable and the service - especially at the bar is great. Food and atmosphere is unpretentious..if you closed your eyes opened them again not thinkign you where in Vancouver you might think your in a small bistro in France.

Come early if you do not have a reservation as you will want to get to the open seating at the bar to get a spot - first come first serve ..oh ...and you definelty will want to try the creme brulee

Pink Peppercorn Seafood House1485 Kingsway, Vancouver
Great Food - poor wine selection
Submitted Friday, August 13, 2010 - 9:05am [Dine in]

We went here in June for my Dads birthday. We use to love going to The Cannery so when we heard that the chef from there had opened his own place with some of the great dishes like the Salmon Wellington being offered at the Pink Peppercorn....well....we just had to go...and it also was close to where we live now.

The food was great and our server was attentive although we were there at 5:30 on a Tuesday - pretty quiet at that time - we were the only table. The wife had the halibut special - it was great and both my dad and I hade the Salmon Wellington. The halibut was perfect and so was the Wellington...just as good as when he made it at The Cannery. The only draw back to the visit is their wine list is lacking big time for a place that offers such great tasty seafood they come up way short on wine offerrings by the glass and by the bottle.

We would have been back by now for another dinner but the lack of decent wine offereings has us going elsewhere until this is changed. They do not even offer corkage - as we would definetly go there with a bottle of our own choice if they allowed us to.

If you don't mind a small wine list and love Cannery classics then this is a must. Oh..as we left somone next to us had ordered the lobster...it looked amazing...come to think of that dish ... maybe we will go there tonight...feel like lobster...go and enjoy!!
