Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House777 Thurlow Street, Vancouver
A seafood favourite
Submitted Monday, April 25, 2011 - 3:40pm [Dine in]

Hub and I have been going to Joe Fortes for a few years now, and we always really enjoy ourselves. The food is fresh and always nicely prepared - we love the oysters, sablefish, Dotty's salad and the wine list. Service is polite, prompt and charming with a nice edge of wit and humour, especially at the bar and on the patio. Joe Fortes proves that a high-end restaurant doesn't have to have uppity or snobby staff. We are always well received and treated, whether we're in our business suits for dinner or in khaki shorts on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The patio is wonderful, but they don't take reservations, so its best to go early or just wait. Keep it up, Joes Fortes!

Biercraft Bistro3305 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Favourite local
Submitted Monday, February 7, 2011 - 7:36pm [Dine in]

Biercraft is a wonderful bistro-style restaurant in Cambie Village - and I am starting to think of it as my local pub (the classy kind). This restaurant is one of our favourites, and we are starting to introduce our friends and family to it. Service has always been friendly, and I try a new beer every time I go. Haven't been disappointed yet! The funky beer glasses are fun, as is the ambiance. The food is very good - from the delicious mussels to the lunch time sandwiches (best smoked meat sandwich I've ever had) to the entrees. The portions are good, and the bill always seems so reasonable. The only complaint I have is that they don't take reservations, and unless you go early, there can be quite a wait for a table. Keep up the good work - we intend to become regulars!

Alexis Greek Restaurant3420 Cambie Street, Vancouver
A pity that Cambie Village doesn't have a better Greek restaurant
Submitted Monday, February 7, 2011 - 7:21pm [Dine in]

Having moved into the neighbourhood a few months ago, my husband and I have been trying out the local restaurants and have been quite pleased.....until Alexis. We went with a couple of friends, and suffice it to say, we won't be going back. While the food wasn't awful, and value for money is extremely poor. There are hundreds of other options in Vancouver where you will spend similar sums of money and have much better food, service and ambiance. I am a little surprised that the restaurant is still going, to be honest. Service wasn't too bad - we've had worse. Overall, it's a pity that we will not be going back to Alexis - we love Greek food, but will have to venture further from the neighbourhood the next time the Greek craving strikes.

Legendary Noodle1074 Denman Street, Vancouver
Fav spot on a cold night
Submitted Thursday, November 19, 2009 - 7:33pm [Dine in]

BF and I love the noodles, the reasonable prices and the large portions. He always has the Gan Man Bian lemon garlic dish and polishes it all off. I like the Hit Me dish with pork and hot garlic sauce. Yes, there is a little bit of greasiness to the noodles, but they are yummy anyway. I plan to try the soups next time as they also seem popular. Ambiance is fine - small and cosy, although the clothes do smell a little bit of fried stuff when you get home. I find that happens with most Chinese and Indian places though, so nothing unusual about the Legendary Noodle in this regard. It's fun to sit near the kitchen and watch the chefs at work, making the noodles by hand. Recommended for sure.

Central Bistro & Lounge1072 Denman Street, Vancouver
Solid all round
Submitted Friday, September 25, 2009 - 11:46am [Dine in]

We decided to pop in for an impromptu late supper one weeknight, and had a good experience overall. We were seated on the patio, and our server brought us cozy fleece blankets in case we got cold, which was a nice touch. The drinks were fine and the food - mussels and fries - were fresh and tasty. The bill seemed appropriate for the quality of the food and the location. Our server was polite and friendly. The only minor complaint we had was that she didn't come back to check on us after our meals were served, and we had to flag her down for the bill. Overall, a nice little spot for a casual laid-back meal.

Al-Watan Tandoori6084 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Wonderful food
Submitted Friday, August 21, 2009 - 3:48pm [Dine in]

We initially tried this place on the recommendation of a friend, and we now go back on a regular basis. The food is authentic and flavourful -- "home-style" cooking. The naan is especially good, and appears to be served fresh from the oven. We always order too much and end up taking a full meal's worth home, but it is equally tasty the next day. The restaurant decor is very plain, but with this quality of food, we really don't care. It's clean and well kept, and the service is decent. They are willing to alter dishes for special dietary requirements too, which is great, as a lot of places seem to have issues with doing this. Our favourites so far are the garlic naan, saag, lamb biryani and chicken curry. Definitely recommended.
