Should take 10-20$ off each menu item and then I'll return
Submitted Thursday, October 8, 2009 - 8:57pm [Dine in]

This is a beautiful restaurant, with gorgeous lighting, woodwork and a real retro decor. The staff are dressed and the idea behind the restaurant is good. All they have to do is knock about 10.00 of every item on the menu and I'd go back. The food is good, but there are many places in Vancouver that have outstanding food, good atmosphere and are priced more rationally.

Les Faux Bourgeois Bistro663 E 15th Ave, Vancouver
Outstanding food!!!
Submitted Wednesday, August 12, 2009 - 8:58pm [Dine in]

Finally got a chance to go here. The food was amazing and good value. The wine list is very reasonable and the atmosphere is lively. It is a very busy place indeed. The salad chevre chaud was beautiful, the cheese plate was delicious and the entrees were divine. I will definitely go back. They offer a vegetarian option for french onion soup as well which is amazing.

Our server seemed a tad overwhelmed by the volume but all in all it didn't matter because the food was outstanding.

Grub4328 Main Street, Vancouver
Another Hip Place on Main....but does not disappoint
Submitted Tuesday, August 11, 2009 - 3:28pm [Dine in]

Well I wanted to be cheeky because it's another hipster scene restaurant on Main but guess what....every time I've eaten here the food has been outstanding. So instead, I'll say this, if you want to go to a cool, restaurant with good music and a candle lit ambience then you should try Grub. The starter plates are good, the entrees are fabulous, and the lemon brulee tart is divine.

The cascade is one of the best places on Main
Submitted Tuesday, August 11, 2009 - 3:17pm [Dine in]

I go to this place a lot, the service is snappy and friendly, the drinks are fab and the staff are great. They use a lot of organic and local ingredients and much of the menu has a British flavour.

This restaurant has given the street polenta fries with curry mayo, and I will forever be grateful for that---order them when you go!

Good place for a drink but food is...meh?
Submitted Tuesday, August 11, 2009 - 3:09pm [Dine in]

I've heard great things about this place for a while but was kind of bummed when I went recently and they were out of about 60% of food and drink on their menu leaving a very minimal selection...oh well, maybe next time. The lack of food is completely made up for by the super snappy service and friendly bartender and good music/atmosphere.

please improve your food!!!!
Submitted Wednesday, August 20, 2008 - 10:21pm [Dine in]

I'm sad becasue I think this is a nice place to go for a drink in gastown, its a great place to take people from out of town and I like the specialty beers...only problem is, you can't really enjoy food here.

We made the mistake of ordering the crab dip---gross, it was dark gray and covered with cheddar.

So, go here fore the beer but eat elsewhere.

Now that they're licensed it's my absolute favourite sushi in Vancouver
Submitted Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 10:26am [Dine in]

This place has always been good but things seem to have been bumped up a notch recently in terms of service and food presentation.

The sushi platters are works of art, delicious and fresh.

Also, they have lots of vegetarian options--more than your average sushi place.

Decor is cool, vibe is good and music is nice and chilled.

Used to be a classy place, gone downhill
Submitted Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 10:21am [Dine in]

I came here years ago and had a wonderful dining experience. Recently came with a group and found that its gone downhill and seems kind of gangster/eurotrash.

So the good, the decor, location and service was pretty good.

The bad, the menu is limited, the kitchen was out of tons of things and I thought that was weird when the restaurant upstairs was empty. The bar was out of things as well. The food itself tried really hard but the 12.00 cheese platter is cheddar and didn't come with crackers...and the tapas are just bar chicken wings without a lot of extra effort, so the food didn't impress.

My advice to this place is: streamline your menu, get some burgers and use the upstairs for the lounge, it's a nicer place to hang out and the restaurant is empty.

Worst brunch experience on main ever!!!
Submitted Saturday, June 28, 2008 - 7:29pm [Dine in]

Had a pretty bad experience here. I was crazy enough to ask for something w/out mushrooms and this seemed to be a huge issue. While we waited for about 40 minutes for our breakfast I got hungrier and hungrier. When I got my food, I asked for a little toast since the order was so small and I was famished. Well, I could hear the cook having a temper tantrum and fighteing w/ the server and it was all and all a bad experience. I will never ever be roped into going here again, especially since there are so many friendlier and more customer-service oriented places in the area.

Main, The4210 Main St., Vancouver
At last Greek food without the terrible music and turquoise walls
Submitted Sunday, April 13, 2008 - 1:16am [Dine in]

The main is a great place to have greek food without feeling like you're stuck in this shirley valentine, turquoise painted walls, bouzouki sounding, plant surrounding stereotype. In fact the vibe is relaxed, the decor is cozy and candle lit, the service is good and the host is warm. Nice place to see good local acts an good value. I'm extra happy now that they've switched to giving out hot pita bread baskets.... I only wish that they'd change up the menu a bit--it's been the same for years. But hey, they do everything on the menu well---especially pizza, lamb and souvlaki so what more do you want in a neighbourhood eatery.

Do something about that mole
Submitted Sunday, April 13, 2008 - 1:03am [Dine in]

I was so excited when this place opened up, I convinced a group of friends to go because the menu looked amazing. I was sorely bummed out by the food. If you have had good quality mexican before you might find this food to be a disappointment. I had the mole chicken and it was so bland, and the chicken tasted rubbery. The ambiance is okay and the music makes up for a lot but it just wasn't enough...which is too bad, we sorely need good mexican restaurants in vancouver.

Pretty Good
Submitted Sunday, April 13, 2008 - 12:56am [Dine in]

Went here recently. Service was great. Had the sable fish and chinese veg and it as excellent but was disappointed with the starter salad, which reminded me of a 'fresh express' bag salad. Banana spring rolls and chocolate sushi was amazing. Order dessert. Nice looking place, beautiful decor and lighting. Has a hipster, yaletown, hoochie feeling. Nice patio in back.

Let them eat brie!
Submitted Sunday, April 13, 2008 - 12:50am [Dine in]

I do not understand why this place keeps getting rave reviews. For one, there is no kitchen--they serve coldcuts, bread and cheese and you pay the premium for what you could easily put together at home. While it is nice that they use local ingredients and have a good selection of wines by the glass, it really is not a place to get a satisfying meal.

In fact, you might be very unsatisfied when you get your bill for 70.oo and realize you're starving becasue you've paid 15.00 for 3 ounces of cheese and some pickles.

Also, it feels pretty weird to be eating brie with Vancouver's hipster art and hairdressing scene when there are starving, homeless and mentally ill people panhandling just outside the door--makes you feel like Marie Antionette
