St. Augustines Restaurant and Lounge2360 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Going Downhill
Submitted Tuesday, September 11, 2012 - 10:55am [Dine in]

One of the two best pubs in the city for beer , 40 taps of real beers (The other is the Alibi Room)
But lately things have started to unravel
1 prices , the average beer is $7.75 , add tax and tip and you have a $10 beer , (Dime and Storm Crow are $5.25/$5.75)
2 food , portions have become smaller , pizza deals are gone on mondays and the sunday deal get you a crappier smaller pizza , prices are ridiculous for the portion sizes
3 service , was quite good but is now getting slow and indifferent
4 NO REAL PINTS , the high price gets you a glass of beer , not a PINT (Whip , Storm Crow , Tap and Barrel ... all have real pints) that is not acceptable in an establishment that is beer centric , also it's a bit of a rip

Via Tevere Pizzeria Napoletana1190 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
Only for Sheep
Submitted Sunday, May 20, 2012 - 12:20pm [Dine in]

If you like to line up with brainless hipsters this is the place for you , otherwise avoid this joint . In my view anyone who lines up for pizza , or any food really , is bordering on stupid .
The pizza is typical Napolitan stuff , burnt thin crust and very little toppings , in other words extremely cheap to make . Prices are very high for what you get . Also had the meatballs , they came tepid and tasteless , I guess spices is not a napolitan thing .
Do yourself a favour and go to Lombardos instead , or even better Sunrise

El Barrio Restaurante Latino2270 East Hasting St., Vancouver
El Barrio is not a Mexican Restaurant
Submitted Monday, September 1, 2008 - 5:15pm [Dine in]

Terrible spelling notwithstanding , the previous review has a major flaw . El Barrio is a Salvadoran or maybe even pan-hispanic restaurant , NOT a mexican restaurant . And if you ever had been to central America you'd realize that spicy food is a mexican thing , not salvadoran , not panamanian , not costa rican , etc...
The prices are a bit high for this part of town but the food is excellent and the wine list small but good . I'm sure they will adjust , the place has only been open for a month .
This is also the only place I know here that uses Huitlacoche .

Italian Kitchen1037 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Bridge and Tunnel crowd
Submitted Thursday, March 6, 2008 - 11:25am [Dine in]

Italian kitchen seems to have been designed for the suburban , big hair crowd . Flashy tacky decor . Food that is average at best and bland always . Service is fine but no better than at Anton's or any other suburban pasta place . In fact for the price Anton's is a much better deal as the food is tastier and comes in bigger servings .
Maybe it was an off night but I won't be back soon .

Shore Club, The688 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver
Never again
Submitted Friday, December 21, 2007 - 2:28pm [Dine in]

My review of the Shore Club keeps being deleted because I did not like the place the one time I went there . Not my fault if I was not impressed by the food , I had a steak which was no better , smaller and no tastier than a steak at the Keg , for about double the price . The room itself is quite nice and the service was OK but not great for the prices charged . I will never go there again , but obviously this is a personnal choice .

Me & Julio2095 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
I'll try again later
Submitted Monday, November 12, 2007 - 10:50pm [Dine in]

Me & Julio just opened and it shows . Some things are working well and some still need major improvements . Most important the food is good , I had a very delicious duck leg and some quite good halibut ceviche . The portions are small and prices fairl;y high , this is the Drive not the West End , that will need to be fixed . Service is fine if a bit overtattoed , but on the Drive that's acceptable :) . The main problem is the bar , it has a lot of potential but right now if you ask for basic cocktails that are not on their sirupy list , they won't know how to make them or not have the ingredients , getting a bartender who actually has gone to bartending school should be possible .
The room is nice and a huge improvement on what it looked like before , the music tends to be the predictable MOR reggae .
Woth trying it again in about 6 months .

Bo Kong Vegetarian Restaurant3068 Main Street, Vancouver
Best vegeterian food in Vancouver
Submitted Friday, August 31, 2007 - 2:31pm [Dine in]

I love the Bo Kong. and I keep going back . I'm not even vegetarian but I could eat here at least once a week forever .

The food is so tasty . My fave is the Tofuskin Rolls in Black Bean Sauce, a truly delicious dish . But there are dozens of other great choices and prices are very reasonable . Dim sum is also good and staff is very helpful and friendly .

The staff is courteous and kind and always willing to make a recommendation. The food is prepared fresh (yes, even the sauces) to order; so don’t be surprised if it takes more than 15 minutes to get your food.

Mouse and the Bean Antojeria Mexicana, The207B West Hastings Street, Vancouver
Not really Mexican
Submitted Saturday, August 25, 2007 - 10:43am [Dine in]

The room is quite nice but the food even though it is edible is absolutely not mexican . More like a gringo's idea of mexican food . Really not authentic at all , and I've been to Mexico over 25 times .The service is allright , most dishes are ho hum and overpriced . The salsa and lettuce are OK . I couldn't finish the tacos because I got bored . Try Lolita's instead .

Place Restaurant, The8028 Granville Street, Vancouver
a very good deal
Submitted Friday, August 3, 2007 - 7:24pm [Dine in]

This restaurant is as clean as any for a start , a lot cleaner than the average Earls or McDonalds . The food is outstanding , delicious huge XLB , very finr sichuan beef noodles and a truly wonderful braised pork in chinese wine , all of it at really cheap prices . The place was very busy with locals and the staff was very friendly , putting up with all my questions , the manager even came at the end to ask if I had liked the Braised pork as apparently many anglos don't . Will definitively go back many times .
