Cora's Breakfast & Lunch11380 Steveston, Unit 170, Richmond
Lots of Hype
Submitted Sunday, June 3, 2012 - 9:57pm [Dine in]

Was excited to try as I heard that this new place, which is a franchise starting in Montreal, served good fresh food.

Went on a Sunday around noon and there was a lineup to get in. We were told about 10 minutes and in fact it was about that long to get seated. Our server was attentive and helpful. I ordered one of the specials - 2 eggs, bacon, hash browns, blueberry crepes. My son ordered off of the kids menu and had the french toast with fruit. Food came and was completely disappointed.

The crepes were odd. They were much thicker then a "normal" crepe, something between a crepe and a pancake. However they did not looked cooked at all. I took a piece to try and it was rubbery, bland and "doughy". I asked the server if this looked OK to her and she said that they looked undercooked and ordered another couple crepes from the kitchen. I proceeded to eat the rest of my breakfast - the eggs were (OK) - hard to screw that up I suppose, the bacon was paper thin, and the hash browns were fine. The thing I noticed was that they were not hot at all. Luke warm to cold. I tried my sons french toast and it was the same thing - cold. When the server brought the new crepes they were exactly like the first batch. They were awful and I left them on the plate. When the server came she obviously saw them there. I suggested that perhaps this is the way they are cooked always?? And she said that she thinks so, that next time it would be best to ask for pancakes instead. I really don't know how anyone could like these crepes. They were awful, rubbery and bland. And the thing is that the crepe is supposed to be a specialty there. They have them in most of the meals!!

My breakfast was around $12. For $12.00 I will go to Tapenade and have a fantastic breakfast/lunch with fresh food, great service and a much better atmosphere. That is money much better spent in my books.

Boathouse Restaurant, The2770 Esplanade Ave, Port Moody
Horrible
Submitted Sunday, June 27, 2010 - 12:50am [Dine in]

Went there for a company function and had a choice of 3 dishes that were pre-ordered in advance. The restaurant was not that busy when we arrived at noon. Considering we ordered in advance and were limited to 1 of 3 main courses - the 2 hours it took to feed us was ridiculous. Even more disappointing was the quality of the food. Horrible, bland, burnt and disgusting. I actually felt bad that my company paid good money for that horrible food. Do yourself a favor and skip this place. I'm sure there are better choices in the area.

Mad Greek7260 Westminster Hwy., Richmond
Mediocre to worse
Submitted Saturday, May 8, 2010 - 7:31pm [Dine in]

Been to Mad Greek a few times. Every time I have been it is quite mediocre. I go as a matter of convenience and have a customer that chooses the place. I'm Greek and can recognize good Greek food. To be frank, if you want really great Greek food you have to go to Greece. You won't find it in many place in the lower mainland....but I digress.

Last time I went for dinner, with this same customer and 2 others it was not even mediocre like in the past. We ordered 4 appetizers to start: calamari, garlic prawns, spanakopita and saganaki. The calamari appetizer is over $11 and the order size very small. The calamari was not especially good and seemed to be undercooked. The garlic prawns were drowned in butter and seemed to not be fresh. The spanokopita was nothing great - my wife can make it 10x better and the saganaki (cheese in alcohol) was below average.

For dinner I had the rack of lamb. It is the most expensive dish on the menu at $30. To be fair, they do give you a big portion (8 ribs). It was cooked medium like requested, but frankly it was way too strongly spiced with garlic. I was feeling the affects the whole night and my wife wouldn't come near me :-) The vegetables seemed like they were frozen and nuked. The rice was decent. The beer on tap was terrible.

I've had better Greek food elsewhere in the lower mainland. In Richmond, choices are limited and perhaps this is why they seem to be busy on most nights.

Steveston Pizza Co.3400 Moncton Street, #100, Richmond
Best Pizza in Town
Submitted Monday, May 3, 2010 - 10:13pm [Dine in]

This is the best pizza in Richmond...if not the Lower Mainland. If you are someone who enjoys thick greasy pizza with layers of toppings - then do you yourself a favor and don't go. This is not the place for you. If you enjoy really great tasting food then do try it.

The guy (owner) making the pizza's isn't some schlep throwing toppings on his pizza. He's given his menu a lot of thought and really has come up with some great combinations. He has even recently revamped the menu with some really crazy gourmet pizza's, which I have yet to try , but will definitely try next time I go.

Mandalay Lounge and Steakhouse3900 Bayview Street, #140, Richmond
2nd Time Not a Charm
Submitted Sunday, April 25, 2010 - 1:27am [Dine in]

We had been to Mandalay once before, and were quite disappointed. We decided that we would give the place one more try to see if things had changed.

The restaurant is in a great location overlooking the water. The decor is OK...not to my taste...just a matter of preference. Others may love it. I think it has a confused identity between being a bar/lounge or a restaurant. I don't necessarily want to have 6 TV's in my line of sight when I go out for "nice" dinner.

The service just wasn't good. The best way I could put it is our waitress was very flaky. I don't want to be doted on or want our server to be hovering, but I do like someone that is attentive and there at the right times.

The food: The first time we went it was just plain bland. This time I had the burger, which was a little too dry and just OK. With it, I had a salad (instead of fries)that was absolutely inedible. They had drowned it in so much dressing. Thankfully they didn't charge me for the salad (which was extra $). I guess they could see the limp lettuce and the pool of dressing and realized the mistake. No apology though....just an "Oh."

My wife had the Thai Salad. Absolutely bland...no flavor/awful. We had no idea what relation this salad had to with anything Thai.

We were really hoping for something different. We live in Richmond and go to Steveston quite often. Another good restaurant in that area would be more than welcome. The place is in a great location and could be successful if they just got their act together. If the food was better, we could overlook the service as this is any easy fix. However, their problems are much deeper and they need either a new owner or a chef with some skill to overhaul their menu. Until that happens, we won't be returning.

Tapenade Bistro3711 Bayview Street, Richmond
Best Choice in Steveston
Submitted Sunday, April 18, 2010 - 6:04pm [Dine in]

Been to Tapenade many times and never disappointed. Whether for lunch or dinner, the food and service has been excellent. The patio is a great option on sunny days (even with the plastic chairs as some reveiwers would lament). So...if you want a great food experience when visiting Steveston - go to Tapenade. If you want to sit closer to the water for the view - try the others - but I can assure you that you won't be as happy.
