Hamilton Street Grill1009 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
Quick lunch
Submitted Friday, July 13, 2007 - 2:05am [Dine in]

Had lunch here with a friend and had an entertainment coupon as well.
Food: Both of us ordered salads considering it was such a hot day. She had the pear salad, and I had the hamilton street cobb salad. We ordered yam fries on the side and i must say that these were the tastiest yam fries I've had. Like my friend said, most places over cook them. I can taste the yam well, and would rather not have the dip that came with it.
Service: Friendly staff, very talkative.
I'll probably re-visit again and try some hot plates next time. Avoid visiting on hot days, this place does not have air-conditioning.

Submitted Friday, July 13, 2007 - 1:54am [Dine in]

I may be wrong, but this decor is something I would have watched on Restaurant Makeover on HGTV. The decor of this place is quite unique. Their brick oven is sure the spotlight of their place.
Food: I went with 3 other friends and ordered their large chef's salad. It was a bit on the salty side, since there were artichokes and olives i believe. I think the salad is a bit overpriced for the "toppings" they gave us with the greens. I vaguely remember it was $13? The large size pasta can feed 2 here, while a large can serve one at Lombardo's. Pasta is a bit better here compared to lombardo's as well.
Service: Nice servers, I'm the type that prefers servers to leave us alone after coming to check up how the food was and such. They kept coming back to refill our glasses of water, but they didn't say much. Which is a good thing!
Definitely a return!

Lombardo's Ristorante and Pizzeria1641 Commercial, #120, Vancouver
Friendly Staff
Submitted Friday, July 13, 2007 - 1:45am [Dine in]

With all the high reviews I've read and an entertainment coupon, the boyfriend and I finally decided to give this place a try. Now I must first mention, as the owner's daughter of "another" pizza place nearby the drive, all the "best pizza in the city" lines made me ponder what was so special about this place.

Food: Perhaps it was a busy night, my clams linguini was on the over cooked (not al dente). The half chicken was worth the 13.95 quite juicy and the salad that came with it wasn't too over dressed. We ordered the #7 which we then found out was quite popular that night. The cook kept making that pizza over and over again. I suppose my standards were high and do mind me that I didn't compare their pizza with "my" store. I must say it's pretty decent pizza. Perhaps they need to control the oven a bit more, our crust was pretty burnt.

Service: Friendly staff, I assume it's a family business, the staff were very approachable and their eagerness to serve makes me feel like I'm seeing a replica of myself.

By the way, the site for Lombardo's is taken off.
Here's the new site: http://www.lombardos.ca/

Wrong Timing?
Submitted Friday, July 13, 2007 - 1:30am [Dine in]

I had a 3 hour break so some friends and I decided to come down from SFU and give this place a try. I was recommended by a few friends to go there, and I do have a classmate that works there.
Food: I must say it's the same setting as Sushi Garden. It's made fresh, so that's nothing to worry about.
Service: The service here isn't the best. One of the server was pretty polite, all the "thank yous and you're welcomes" but the other server was really bad. We didn't really catch the lunch crowd but the rush did come after we placed our orders. Our food took about 40 minutes to come. Must I say again we MISSED the rush. When we placed the order, there was only 2 other tables. The people in the kitchen/bar kept making take-out orders and neglected the customers sitting in.
I'll possibly go back, possibly.

Milestone's Grill and Bar4420 Lougheed Hwy, Burnaby
Good service
Submitted Thursday, July 5, 2007 - 12:07am [Dine in]

Food: my favorite would be their chicken foccacia sandwich, grilled chicken salad with their raspberry vinegrette and grilled chicken pesto fettucini. Although it's a big chain restaurant, the location at Richmond isn't as good compared to this one.
Service: I really like the service here, the servers seem to enjoy their job and there's always a smile on their faces. Also the working area is smaller compared to other locations, so their attention to their customers are better.
I have gone back to this location time after time.

Han Ju Tofu Hot Pot8328 Capstan Way, #1138, Richmond
satisfies my craving
Submitted Wednesday, July 4, 2007 - 11:55pm [Dine in]

Visited this location quite a few times. Hot pot prices are set at 5.95 rice dishes are 6.95. There are quite a few taiwanese side dishes. I wouldn't say it's traditional korean food, but then the spice of the soup satisfies my instant craving for something spicy. The service at this location is far beyond better than the one in Burnaby. I never go there anymore. Clean, decent service, good prices.

One of my favoraites
Submitted Saturday, January 27, 2007 - 5:07am [Dine in]

Though their line-ups are long it's worth the wait. I really enjoy having their teas (milky, black, green) because they don't give off a bad after taste like other bubble tea places does, suppose they have nice quality tea. Their food on the other hand needs some improvement. My friends and I all ordered at the same time and my food took so long that nearly all of them finished before mine actually arrived. When I questioned them about my order, all they said was to check up on it, but they never really got back to telling me what they did with my order. Lesson learned. I'll only order drinks, and perhaps doing take-out, since they're always so busy.

Late Night all you can eat
Submitted Saturday, January 27, 2007 - 5:02am [Dine in]

I read a few reviews here a few nights ago and decided to give it a try with my dad. We went there at about 9:30, and they took names down for the late night menu crowd. I thought it was quite professional of them having this type of system so it gives their employees a break, and it shows to me that they're taking their jobs seriously. Although the food is about average "all you can eat" quality, their service was well better than others! We had only one waitress in our area and she kept asking for tea refill and if we wanted to order more. As well, I noticed that for our seating area there are 2 servers that serves the food so thei waitress wouldn't have to work so hard. Food = okay. Service = well beyond any other all you can eat places i've been to

Griffins900 West Georgia St., Vancouver
Dine Out Vancouver 2007
Submitted Saturday, January 27, 2007 - 4:58am [Dine in]

For $25 during the weeks of dine out Griffins is a must-have. I had their roasted beef striploin and the portion was incredibly large, striploin was tender and up to perfection. The downside to dinner that night was we went too late. By the time we finished our meal, their dessert buffet was closing, and weren't many choices for us to choose from. In comparison to their Christmas and weekly Sunday brunches, I'd say $25 goes by far at this restaurant since they usually charge about $50 per guest during their buffets. Highly recommended, and will return next year.

Capstone Tea & Fondue1429 Robson Street, Vancouver
all you can eat chocolate fondue
Submitted Saturday, January 27, 2007 - 4:53am [Dine in]

I remember hearing this place a couple years back from a few friends but never had a chance to try it out. Finally a couple of friends decided we'd get together for dessert and took me here.
I could honestly say it feels as if it's another bubble tea joint. Their fondue wasn't too outstanding, but considering it was 5.95 for all you can eat (with purchase of a drink) it was well worthwhile. It came with bananas, grapes, apples, pineapples, strawberries, pretzels, gummy bears and marshmellows. The cheese fondue wasn't that great lets just end it there. The service wasn't up to par, at the beginning we thought it was a "self-serve" type of place. Their service was slow. Overall, 3 of us sharing a 2 people price of chocolate fondue was well worth. We knew they close at 12 because they made us pay the bill at 11:30, and they dimmed the lights at 11:45. Rushing us to go home?

Dine Out Vancouver 2007
Submitted Thursday, January 25, 2007 - 2:24am [Dine in]

I was warned by a friend that this wasn't the "best" restaurant for the food. I did however want to give the $15 category a try, and so a few of my friends and I decided to risk our luck. The appitizer and dessert was acceptable. Our entree wasn't the greatest. I personally didn't like mine. The vegetarian dish was the only one that turned out all right. I suppose that's all I can describe about it. I think others would have different opinions but I guess we paid our price by not believing our friend in the first place!

3 Year Anniversary Dinner
Submitted Sunday, January 14, 2007 - 5:39am [Dine in]

The boyfriend and I wanted something special to celebrate our anniversary dinner this year. The food was wonderful, we shared the scallop spheres and the dungeness crab cake. Entree the alberta beef, and the duck tribute. Dessert was the pear tango, and temptations. Those were our choices, yet our service wasn't too outstanding. Perhaps our server thought for us to be quite young and I honestly do not understand the stereo-type of this. All in all, the service in comparison to our table and the one beside ours (which was much older, I must say!) was incredibly different. Nonetheless, their 'average' service didn't ruin our special meal and of course the superb view.

Fujiya912 Clark Drive, Vancouver
it's a supermarket!
Submitted Saturday, August 12, 2006 - 2:40am [Dine in]

fujiya's a supermarket. however, they have plenty of take-out boxes for everyone to enjoy. it's also very nice of them to have a microwave at the lobby area for customers to heat their food.

i would say fujiya carries a variety of authentic japanese food. yet to accomodate north american sushi lovers they of course have the famous california, chopped scallop, and spicy tuna rolls. not to mention they carry a variety of fusion rolls as well. the spider roll, and cajun shrimp roll is also one of my favoraites. prices are incredibly good and while you're there you can pick up some really good japanese snacks. their pocky's are usually on sale but before purchasing them, be sure to check out the expiry dates. sometimes they sell the expired ones for an incredible cheap price.

they do a pretty good bakery considering it's such a small shop. japanese are famous for the creamed filled buns, and the ones here are almost as good as the ones at japan. lastly, for dessert they have these rice tea cakes (daifuku) that are tasty and an icecream counter.

Maxim's Restaurant257 Keefer Street, Vancouver
a long time customer
Submitted Sunday, August 6, 2006 - 2:24pm [Dine in]

we've been customers of Maxim's for 15 years. honestly i really don't know what's so great about this place. my parents goes there for lunch everyday. seriously. i usually pay a visit with them once a week before i start work as well. their servers are quite friendly with us, since we're regular customers, everyone knows us already.

the food.
personally, i really enjoy eating their curry brisket with rice. their curry sauce is really good and there isn't any other hong kong styled cafe that makes it as good as maxim. (not that i know of) please try their baked pork chop on rice as well. these two dishes are one of their famous ones.
their bakery is always good, pineapple bun is addictive. as well as their egg tarts

pricing is fair. spending $10 here can leave you with a take-out bag if you're a light eater like me. their 3.75 breakfast meal is also a good bargain. sausages/bacon/ham with eggs or a selection of meats with noodle in soup with a coffee and bun.

Kat's Bubble Tea House6519 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
poor service
Submitted Sunday, August 6, 2006 - 2:17pm [Dine in]

i live nearby but this place doesn't have anything for me to go back. last time i ordered a honey milk tea with pearls and they gave me honey green milk tea with some jelly of some sort.
the funny thing was, i was the ONLY customer in at that moment, how can you get an order wrong like that? not only because they made my order wrong, they made me pay an additional 0.50 to correct my order. the owner of the store didn't bother making any eye contact with me or apologizing for their mistake but rather discussing with her mother about purchasing houses and surfing the net on her laptop.
after recieving the correct order, the drink wasn't too outstanding. 4.25 for a drink, then 0.50 for correcting my drink isn't well worth going back to give this place another try.

over charging late night menu compared to other places
Submitted Wednesday, August 2, 2006 - 2:02am [Dine in]

considering that they charge 3 dollars more than other late night all you can eat places i thought it was OK.

the food was average, and selection was the same. there isn't anything more that's well worth talking about for them to charge 3 dollars more.

aside from that, Edward the waiter is a pretty bad server. he placed the plate of maki rolls on top of the ends of my hair which made it sticky by the end of the night. he then refilled my cup of tea and wet my cellphone as well.
he noticed but he didn't apologize.

good food, great prices
Submitted Tuesday, August 1, 2006 - 12:31am [Dine in]

i've been a customer of Steve's for almost 4 months now. i usually pay a visit every week or so, you can honestly say i'm a fan. not only their food is good, but their prices are great. 10 dollars can actually get you far eating here. 5.95 for burger or sandwiches and 4.95 for all appitizers who can go wrong?
whenever i'm in there, they usually have a few tables, but their food is incredible aside from the prices. i have never seen any other restaurant give so much seafood in a seafood chowder, and for only 4.95.
Their service is good as well, friendly servers and a great place for gatherings with friends.
a high recommendation
