Great place for lunch!
Submitted Tuesday, October 4, 2011 - 1:56am [Dine in]

My hubby and I went here for lunch today. They had a steak, potato and coleslaw special for $10 which we ordered. We also ordered Chicken Wings at $0.35 each (a dozen) and a large plate of french fries for $5.00. Everything tasted good.
The service was good too. The waitress came around at the perfect time.
The ambiance was very nice too. Not too loud music and just very relaxing.
They have great lunch specials and it changes everyday. (Eg. Mexican burger $8!!!)
Would recommend this place and would go back!!!

Romer's Burger Bar8683 Kerr Street, Vancouver
Good place to eat!
Submitted Sunday, September 11, 2011 - 1:03am [Dine in]

Had a very nice dinner at Romer's.

A bit confusing when we first arrived. The hostess said that it would be a half an hour wait. I asked if we could sit at the counter, as there were already three settings made. She said we don't need to order drinks. I said we are here for dinner. It was the most bizarre converstation!! As soon as we sat down, three tables left the restaurant. Hmmmm . . . half an hour wait??

Anyway, our daughter liked where we were sitting as we could see the cooks prepare all the meals. I shared a Salmon burger with my daughter and hubby had the Man's Man burger. I had the Beet salad, daughter the Watermelon salad and hubby the french fries. Everything was delicious. They were a bit chinzy with the tomatoes in the burgers. Buns were delicious. French fries nice and crisp. Salads very flavourful! Burgers were on the expensive side as it did not come with anything but an olive and jalapeno pepper. Total cost with tip came to $50.

A very nice place to eat. Very cozy. Not too loud and felt very welcoming. Patio eating area too.

Did not like the fact that the washrooms were unisex. Could have made one for men and the other for women, and just made both handicap.

Also, when the cook dropped a utensil on the floor, he would run it under water . . . no scrubbing with soap or anything. Floors in kitchen not clean and saw the cook and helpers slip around. (Safety issue.)

Will go back for sure!!

How much did you say???
Submitted Monday, August 29, 2011 - 1:30pm [Dine in]

Stopped in Whistler for a quick bite to eat. Decided on The Brewhouse. There was three of us. It was a warm night so we opted for the patio. It was great! The atmosphere was great. People watching and the music wasn't too loud, didn't feel crowded or felt we had to hurry.

After we were seated promptly, it took a while for our server to come take our drink orders. The place was busy in the patio but not busy at all inside. My husband ordered a beer but took over 15 minutes to get to him.

We shared the Green Salad ($7), Prime Rib Sliders ($13) and Mac & Cheese ($16). Salad was OK. Prime Rib Slider, which was an appetizer was VERY plain! No zing, no excitement. I thought there should have been some sort of garnish to it but nope, just three buns on a white plate. We should have ordered a hamburger instead! Mac and Cheese was definite overpriced!! The food wasn't delicious . . just ok. Total amount was $60 - way too expensive! Took a long time to get our bill too . . . and then to pay!! Our server was nice but soooo slow.

All in all, it was nice to be able to sit outside and absorb the atmosphere but would we go back? Maybe. We have fond memories of Brewhouse when it was first opened years ago so I guess that's why we chose this place.

Just the right size steak!
Submitted Sunday, August 7, 2011 - 1:54pm [Dine in]

Came her for dinner with my hubby last night. Been wanting to come but never did and always want to try their pizza too but didn't!!
We both had the 6 oz. NY steak special. It came with sauted mushrooms with butter and garlic, spaghetti and meat sauce and garlic bread and a salad to start. All for $13.95! The steak was delicious - asked for medium rare - and it just melted in your mouth! It was a small steak (6 oz) but very filling. For a person with a big appetite, probably won't do. The spaghetti and meat sauce is one of the best I've ever had in a restaurant. I don't usually have that but it was delicious! Garlic bread was fresh and nicely toasted! The salad looked very fresh and not all wilted! A very good deal for what we paid!!
The service was really good too. Our server sat us right away, got our water and told us the specials, even though it's posted on the wall! Very efficient and always with a smile on her face.
Like other reviews, the place is dated but it gave it a very homey feeling. It wasn't dirty or anything . . . just very comfy.
The other server in the restaurant said that she was surprised how quiet the restaurant was because it usually is packed at that time of night.
Would we go back . . . YES! Especially for the steak. Next time the pizza . . . or Wednesday for the souvlaki specials!

Get his nose out of the air
Submitted Monday, May 23, 2011 - 6:50pm [Dine in]

We went to this restaurant to celebrat my birthday and my best friend's birthday. It was indicated that it was our birthday but nothing was ever mentioned about it.
We didn't realized that Sunday night, it was $10 pasta night. No signs to indicate it. Nothing in the menu to mention it, just noticed that it was busy for a Sunday night. There was five of us, and we shared a Ceasar salad and a pizza for appetizer. Both were very, very tasty. Just enough. Bread and olive oil/Balsamic Vinegar was also brought. Enough oil and vinegar for maybe four slices of bread. I asked for more oil and vinegar and the bus boy brought another plate out and plopped ontop of the one that was already on the table!! I found that so strange. Took a long time for them to clear the table of our appetizer dishes too.
I had the Fettucine ai Funghi, my husband had Fusilli Salicce, my friend and daughter had the Lingune Frutti di Mare (which happened to be Black Cod that night), and my friend's husband had Spaghetti Bolognese. All the pasta's were delicious and we got alot for $10!!!
We asked for more bread when our dinner arrived, and he only gave us bread with no oil and vinegar. We asked for water, the bus boy filled only my glass and half of another glass and left the others empty. Thinking he was coming back, he didn't. Obviously he ran out of water in the pitcher and went to get more, but he filled the other end of the restaurant and never came back to our table. The waiter finally filled the glasses five minutes later.
The ambiance of the restaurant was fantastic. It was cozy and beautiful. The service really sucked. Our waiter made us feel unwelcomed. The bus boy was useless. And when we finally got out bill to pay, it took another 15 minutes before anyone showed up to take our payment. Thank goodness we didn't have to pay full price for our food. When we got up to leave, no one said thank you for coming or anything. Will I go back? Probably not. Will I suggest this restaurant?? NO!!! Too many good Italian restaurants in Vancouver to go back there.

Good neighbourhood restaurant
Submitted Friday, April 1, 2011 - 9:45pm [Dine in]

Always walked or drove by this restaurant and always wanted to try it. Did it last night.

The salad, Verde, was unbelievable!! I can't wait to eat more!! Lots of garlic! Pasta was not what I expected. I wanted Clams in a white sauce and it came in a more tomato sauce. It was good but not what I really wanted!! My daughter had a pizza . . . she found it plain but other people who ordered different ones said it was excellent. (We had the left over pizza today, warmed it up and added more cheese and it was delicious!!) The large pasta was HUGE!!! Everyone seemed to enjoy their food too. Large pasta and small pizza was just under $30. Not bad for fresh ingredients!!!

The server was a bit strange. He dropped my daughters pizza on the table and had to wait forever for another one. By then, everyone else was finished so she didn't feel like eating. Did bring her a piece of bread to fill her till her pizza got there. Kept forgetting who got what or who asked for water. He asked if we wanted separate bills and we said that would be great but he forgot who ordered what and had to come back TWICE to see who ordered what, eventhough he wrote it all down on little slips of paper. We decided to give him one credit card at a time so as not too confuse him. And yes, we were tired hearing about his African girlfriend, who took all his tips and his carmel coloured son!!! It got fairly awkward after the fifth time!!!

Despite the server, and I don't know if he works every night, the food is delicious and I would recommend this place!!!

Not what I expected!
Submitted Friday, April 1, 2011 - 9:36pm [Dine in]

Totally different type of Vietnamese restaurant than am I am used to.

Made reservations for 8 and were seated at a small round table. So crowded and the restaurant was empty!!! It would have been better if they put two tables of 4 together . . . just saying!!!!

Dishes were fairly small portions and it all looked the same. Did not like the spring rolls or the fish dish. We ordered a large soup but didn't give us a ladle to scoop it out. Yes, I did ask for one but she looked a bit confused as why we would need a ladle! 6 dishes plus soup came to $85.

Also ordered a sub sandwich and not what we would expect! Eventhough it was only $3 . . . still not worth it.

Service was so-so. We sat there waiting for our bill while the waitress was talking on the phone. Tried flagging her down but she was too into her conversation. Almost gave them a 25% tip . . thank goodness I recounted the money!!!

Definitely do not recommend this restaurant. Try Cambie Vietnamese on Main Street!

Dine Out Vancouver 2011
Submitted Wednesday, February 9, 2011 - 2:41am [Dine in]

We had reservations for 5:30PM on Sunday. Was hoping for a lovely view at that time, but nope, it was raining and cloudy. There was 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 kids.

I started with the Oysters which tasted amazing but very, very, very, tiny portion. My hubby had the Tomato Bisque as well as the 2 kids (they shared a dine out dinner). They really liked it.

For the main entrees, hubby and I had the New York steak. He thought it was great, I found it to be a tasteless piece of meat!! It was a fair size portion. Came with two tiny potatoes and a little scoop of vegetables. The kids had the gnochetti and they LOVED it. I thought the portion size of the pasta was rather small.

For dessert, the kids and I had the Chocolate Creme Brule and hubby had the Poached Pear Bread Pudding. The kids didn't like the brule. It was OK but it was not a brule. It tasted more like a pudding than a custard. Also, the top was soft not hardened sugar.

The bread was tasty.

The service was ok. She wasn't overly friendly and didn't care to make converstaion on anything. Didn't seem pleased that the kids were there too, eventhough they were behaving. Usually, if people are sharing meals, they would split them in the kitchen, but she just brought the extra bowl for the soup and an extra plate for the pasta, and it was akward dividing it up.

The atmosphere was nice. The place looked the same as before the fire.

Overall, because it was Dine Out, and we only had to pay $28 for the three course meal, it was worth it but I would be very disappointed if I ordered from the main menu. We will probably go back, like we do every year for my husbands birthday, but only with the Entertainment coupon.

Submitted Thursday, February 3, 2011 - 3:58pm [Dine in]

I went here last night with 3 girlfriends . . wha a fabulous place!!

As a starter, complimentary Hummus and it was delicious!!! More than enough for the four of us!

I had the Chickpea Fritters and salad as an appetizer. It was so flavourful, not overpowering but soo delicious!! Two ladies had the Keftekes - DELICIOUS and the other friend had the soup - delicious and quite filling. Large portions too.

I had the Lamb Stifados and again, very flavourful . . . absolutely DELICIOUS!! It was too large so ended taking half of it home. My friends all had the Tuna. YUMMY!

There were only two choices for dessert. The other three ladies had the Creme Brulee and I had the baclava. Since I was so FULL, i only had one piece of the dessert, and gave the other two pieces away. I tried the brulee and it was absolutley DELICIOUS.

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. The ambience was wonderful (except for the TV on at the bar!), the service was top notch, and the food . . . incredible.

I highly recommend this restaurant. $28 for the three course meal, unbelievable value. I looked at the regular menu . . . lots of interesting dishes so I can't wait to go back and try some of them!!!

Good Food!
Submitted Monday, September 6, 2010 - 11:44am [Dine in]

Had dinner here with my family and a friend and her family - 7 of us. I phoned to make reservations for 5PM and when we got there at 4:55PM, they did not have the table set up!
FOOD: Delicious! Everything tasted really good. I had the curry chicken. They said it wasn't spicey but I found it a tad spicey. Not really worth the cost - only 5 pieces of chicken. My daughter had the Wonton & Noodle soup. Big bowl and everything tasted delicious. It came piping hot! My husband and my friend and her husband had the #39 Dinner combo - lemongrass chicken, salad roll and spring roll. It all looked delicous and very tastey - wasn't too fond of the salad roll though. The other kids had Pho with beef and they loved it too. Appetizer was ordered - no chicken wings. Wasn't this a Vietnamese restaurant? No chicken wings?? Found that really odd. My friend also ordered the lettuce wrap as an appetizer. That came half way of the meal!! It wasn't what she was expecting - deep fried lettuce wrap! We also got the deep fried banana for dessert. Fair size but the bananas were not ripe enough so it wasn't sweet - even with the ice cream. For the three of us - the total bill came to $45 including tip. So it was a very good value.
SERVICE: We seemed to sit there for ages before our food came, ages before they even cleared our table. We always had to ask for more tea, more water, the bill . . . not asking how our meals were either. They seemed to be sweet girls but nothing up there!! Also, it wasn't busy for dinner. Six other tables only for the 2 1/2 hours that we were there.
VALUE: Very good value. I would go again!
AMBIANCE: It was clean and not too crowded. The bathrooms were ok.

Delicious!
Submitted Saturday, July 3, 2010 - 1:36am [Dine in]

I went to a Nando's many years ago and did not like it. That was maybe 10 years ago . . . boy have I been missing out!!!
We had an Entertainment coupon - whole chicken plus two sides for $18.99! Great deal. Feed the three of us.
Chicken was nice and tender and juicy! Since our daughter was eating too, we opted for the Lemon and Herb seasoning. Delicious!!! The coleslaw was delicous too. French fries we could left it! Sides are quite small so be sure to upgrade if you want more.
The girl that served us was very good. She checked on us twice which I found quite unusual as it was a fast food type restaurant (order at a counter and food is brought to you.) but a nice touch.
How can you go wrong for $18.99?? Value was very good. Would have spent more at McDonald's or even Cactus Club!!!
The place was very clean, washroom was clean, so no complaints there!
Would definitely go back!!

Minoas Greek Taverna3823 Kingsway, Burnaby
Definitely overpriced!
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 3:14am [Dine in]

The three of us had dinner here last night. Eventhough there was nothing wrong with the place or the food . . . we found it to be very pricey, and this is using the Entertainment coupon.
I had the Roast Lamb which was very tender, once you found the meat fighting the fatty stuff. Not enough tzatziki. Loved that the pita bread was cut into small trianlges! I found the plates too small with too much stuff on it. My husband had the lamb chops which looked very good. And my daughter had the Calamari . . . awfully small portion for the price we paid. The rings were very large compared to other Greek restaurants.
The restaurant had the old rustic feel to it. It was fine and felt very comfortable. The service was there . . . not overbearing or anything. I felt sorry for our waitress, I assume she is the grandmother . . . running back and forth!
In total we spent $60 after the coupon. Would have preferred to have gone to another Greek restaurant for that price.

This is a good place to eat if you have time. . . the food is awesome (I still have the taste of the roast lamb in my mouth!!!!!) . . . the service was a bit slow (took about 5 minutes to be seated). . . the price was a bit pricey at $12.95 for lunch. The meal came with a fair size Greek salad, a couple of small pieces of roasted potato, tasty rice made with spinach, green peppers and onions and a whole wheat pita bread. This place has a decent washroom.

I went here for lunch with a friend during a weekday. They have tons of lunch specials - $7.50. I had the Kaeng Kari Gai (Boneless Chicken with red curry, bamboo shoots & Coconut milk) - yummy to the tummy!!! It came with soup, spring roll, large portion of rice and large portion of the chicken. I couldn't eat all of mine and took some home. We were too full to have dessert. I wanted to try the deep friend banana.
Service was good.
Value was very good.
Ambiance had a nice feel to it. Very clean.

Best teriyaki!
Submitted Thursday, October 15, 2009 - 12:33am [Dine in]

My husband, daughter and I went to this place for dinner on Saturday night due to the reviews on dinehere.ca. Very small place and very clean. We ordered the dinner special for two ($24.95), deep fried California Roll and edamame. The dinner special came with Miso soup, noodle dish in the sweet vinegar sauce, small order of tempura (2 prawns and about 6 pieces of vegetables), California roll, 4 pieces of nigiri, two bowls of rice, small order of teriyaki beef (other options - chicken and tofu) with a small side salad. I thought it was a great deal for all the food!! The deep fried California roll was delicious but found it pricey (I think it was $5) for what you got. The teriyaki beef was the best I've ever had. Not too sweet and no artificial flavour!
Service was pretty good . . . did ask for tea a couple of times, eventhough the restaurant was busy but not full to capacity. We did get greeted right away and that was a nice touch.
Value was very good.
Ambience was good too. Tables were a bit tight but not too bad. (A little girl at the next table coughed without covering her mouth a couple of times - which was annoying - especially with so many illnesses going around!)
Cost for dinner was just over $40 for the three of us (1 beer too) so thought it was a pretty good deal! Definitely will go back!

Yummy AYCE!!
Submitted Friday, May 15, 2009 - 11:44pm [Dine in]

The food was pretty good. It came fairly fast too.
$22.95 for each adult and $12.95 for each child. (AYCE is $1.00 less Monday to Thursday.) Large bottle of Sapporo beer was $9.95.
Food came to our table within 10 minutes of ordering. We didn't get everything that we ordered the first time around, but we just ordered it the next time.
Dessert was a great size as you only get a small cube of mango pudding or jello and three rolls of the red bean spring rolls. If I wasn't so full, I would have had more!!!
Value is pretty good. Lots of variety - sashimi (no limit!), lots of assorted sushi rolls, different types of teriyaki dishes (beef, chicken, salmon, steak, vegetarian), udon dishes, rice dishes, tempura (PRAWNS!!! SCALLOPS!!! and of course, the vegetables!!!) robata dishes. Hot and cold appetizers - so the value is pretty good. The only thing is the Edamme beans comes cold!! And I like them hot.
We had a small cube deep freezer next to our table so . . .
We tend to avoid AYCE because we would overeat. We are soooo stuffed. But this place is pretty good. I would go back!
