Urban Thai Bistro1119 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
great brunch
Submitted Tuesday, October 16, 2007 - 5:30pm [Dine in]

Friends took me here last week for brunch. $11.95 all you can eat off of a limited menu but it still had many great choices. I think this is one of the best values around and I think many people agree as it was lined up. I will definitely return for another brunch visit.

Kolachy Co.888 Beatty Street, Vancouver
so much better now
Submitted Tuesday, October 16, 2007 - 5:24pm [Dine in]

My friend took me to the kolachy shop four months ago for the first time. I returned today with a work colleague as I noticed that they were open since closing for renovations. The kolachy I had was wonderful, it was a chicken club. I am not sure if it was the new decor and open kitchen or if they had changed how they prepare them but it was better than my first visit. I definitely recommend trying this place out if you are looking for a tasty treat.

Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar1095 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
Love the Sushi bar
Submitted Thursday, August 23, 2007 - 11:38am [Dine in]

Blue Water is one of my favourite restaurants when I visit Yaletown. I love to sit at the Sushi bar and watch the chefs at work. On my last visit we had a few Citrus Bomb martini's and a selection of sushi. I have to admit that I don't recall everything we had because the martini's definately got me "bombed". I love the decor in the room and the buzz. Looking forward to coming in for a dinner in the dining room.

Flying Wedge Pizza Co.200 Burrard Street, #27, Vancouver
Expensive
Submitted Saturday, July 28, 2007 - 6:59pm [Dine in]

Visited flying wedge in the food fair under the Waterfront hotel after eating at a restaurant upstairs from it because I was stil a bit hungry. Food and service were fine but I was shocked to pay almost $10 for a drink and a slice of pizza. Maybe I am use to the cheap pizza on Granville, Flying Wedge is sooo much better than Granville Street pizza but I was still shocked by the price. I wish Gastown would open some place for a cheap slice or if there is one I dont know about it.

Boneta12 Water Street, #115, Vancouver
Almost perfect
Submitted Saturday, July 28, 2007 - 6:53pm [Dine in]

I had an enjoyable dinner at Boneta. The owners were very gracious and accomodating. Love the free valet as well, especially on a rainy night. The menu being projected on the wall as a unique touch except that I had to read fast and then wait for the slide show to get back to the page I wanted to read. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable and helped make the night great. My only complaint was that the duck and scallop wonton was small for the price even if it was great with flavour. As was already mentioned by someone else I found the entree's to be good value and delicious. I am looking forward to returning soon since I heard that they are only open for a year.

New management
Metro Restaurant200 Burrard Street, Vancouver
Great designed room
Submitted Saturday, July 28, 2007 - 6:49pm [Dine in]

Having eaten at Metro's sister restaurant Rare, I thought I would venture over to see what the new restaurant was like. I was impressed with the design of the room and fell in love with the it. I sat in the lounge with my date and had some of their "metro plates" with a nice glass of house wine. The bartenders were very accomodating and friendly. I found the food to be very good and at the right price but I think I was expecting it to be on par with Rare. I understand that Metro is brand new and that it takes time to get everyone firing at 100% so I will go back again in a few months. Dont get me wrong I was happy with what I was served but maybe I went in thinking it was going to be just like Rare and to be fair I didnt have an entree.

I think it is interesting that some previous posts are assuming that one of the reviews is from someone who works at the restaurant. I was told by a friend that they think most posts on here are from workers, owners or disgruntled staff etc so who knows. But really who cares it is the internet and if I can post whatever I want so should they. Will review again when I visit in the Fall.

Rare1355 Hornby Street, Vancouver
Love this place
Submitted Thursday, May 10, 2007 - 3:46pm [Dine in]

I had a chance to go to Rare with a group from work. I had read the number of great reviews they recieved and went in with very high expectations. I have to say that each one was met. Personalised menus really was a nice touch as was having my napkin re-folded for me when I returned from the washroom. The food was well prepared and presented. No heavy sauces or fusion to confuse the flavours. We had the Seasonal Menu which was 6 courses for $45 a really great value in my opinion. The service was attentive without being overbearing. They paired wine with our courses and each one hit the mark. The room seems to be what is big in the city right now for new restaurant designs. Minimal but well thought out. I am excited to return again.
