sunny patio, cold beer, great fish and chips!
Submitted Tuesday, April 14, 2009 - 8:07pm [Dine in]

We live in the neighborhood and my bf and I sometimes make fun of Karv when we walk past in summer and see all the shirtless patrons getting wasted and/or flexing on the patio... who knew the food was decent?
The sunny patio was too good to resist today and we decided to give it a try. This place is actually pretty damn good! Fish and chips had crunchy batter, good quality fish, tasty tartar. I had a caesar salad as well and it was really fresh and crunchy with a light dressing. Service friendly and prompt. Great place to enjoy the sun, have a cold beer and a nice meal. And of course remove your shirt.

surprisingly delicious!
Submitted Friday, March 13, 2009 - 9:14am [Dine in]

My bf and I came here last night for a bite to eat and a drink before a show at the Commodore and were pleasantly surprised by how good it was! We both had the BBQ burger ($12) and it was delicious. Big, juicy patty with applewood smoked cheddar, toasted bun, overall yumminess. His fries were good too, and my salad was simple but very fresh tasting. The service was prompt and friendly as well. 2 stars for ambiance would probably be higher on a night when we weren't seated next to a drunken table of hyenas practicing their use of the f-word.

My bf visited the kitchen on our way out to tell the cooks how good our burgers were (a nice thing he likes to do which I like to think makes the food even better!) and they said they put Guinness in the BBQ sauce.... yum!

so delicious...
Submitted Saturday, January 24, 2009 - 3:13pm [Dine in]

We met some friends from this side of town here for dinner last night - I'd never heard of this place and I'm so glad we were introduced to it!

We all shared the appetizer platter which was lovely. The pakoras, the chicken, and especially the paneer bites were sooo good. The naan was fluffy and delicious too, not thick and greasy like other naans I've had. Enough for 4 people for 10 bucks was well worth it. For mains we all shared some dishes (malai kofta, butter chicken, bombay curry, veggie korma) that were wonderfully flavored as well. The service was friendly and personal, the ambiance cute and warm and the value exceptional - each main around $11 and we were stuffed.

Yummy Indian worth crossing the bridge for!

Fun with cocktails
Submitted Monday, January 19, 2009 - 1:15pm [Dine in]

We came here on a Saturday night with a craving for Mexican food and drinks and were not disappointed! I think we tried every cocktail on the menu plus a shot of tequila, all very good. The pomegranate one in particular stood out.

As for food, we both had the tacos with a mix of the halibut, squash and chicken, and preferred the halibut overall. They could perhaps go a little easier on the pickled cabbage garnish they top the tacos with... it's a bit vinegary and overpowering. Still pretty good though!

Our server was lovely and made sure we were well looked after even though it was crazy busy in there.

Lots of fun and great ambiance too!

Dine Out '09
Submitted Monday, January 19, 2009 - 1:07pm [Dine in]

Three of us ate here for dine out last week and really enjoyed it. Two of us had the scallop appetizer which was delicious and the other had the fennel fritter which she liked as well. For mains we had the lamb, cod and eggplant which were all yummy. The lemon tart for dessert was particularly delicious - crispy on top like a creme brulee which was lovely! Our server was friendly and attentive and the ambiance was nice too - we didn't feel rushed or as though it was overly chaotic. The manager or someone even called the next day to ensure that we enjoyed our experience which was a nice touch!

I would go back during non-dine out times.

Vera's Burger Shack1935 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver
Mmmm.... cold burgers and soggy fries!
Submitted Thursday, December 11, 2008 - 11:52am [Dine in]

Had a craving for Vera's burgers and fries one night and called ahead for take out; told it would be about 10 minutes. BF arrived promptly and paid, then waited around for about 15 minutes until he noticed that there was a bag 'o food sitting on top of a toaster in the back. Yup, that was us! He finally got someone's attention to hand it over, and wow! it was sooooo good when we unwrapped it at home. Cold, soggy fries and cold, dry burger. Delightful!

I usually love their food but this time eating in might have been a better option.

Beautiful birthday cake!
Submitted Tuesday, December 9, 2008 - 1:23pm [Dine in]

I wanted to get my bf a special cake for his birthday and saw the reviews here. I called to see if they might have any cakes available on short notice and I think it was Peter himself who said it wouldn't be a problem. I came in on the day of the party and chose their 10' chocolate caramel cake. The woman working there even offered to decorate it with a message, which took all of about 10 minutes - and it was STUNNING!

As for the important part - the taste. Most importantly my bf loved it, and everyone else at the party raved about how delicious it was. For $37 bucks, 10 people each got a fair sized piece and we're still working on the leftovers. Excellent value in my opinion for a truly delicious and beautiful dessert.

I'll be back to try more of the gorgeousness I saw in their display case!

Yummy brunch!
Submitted Tuesday, December 9, 2008 - 11:51am [Dine in]

Went with my bf for his birthday brunch last Sunday. We were both so impressed with the cozy atmosphere, delicious french bistro inspired food, great value and above all the friendly and kind service!

We shared a "bottomless" pot of french press coffee ($3 a person), bf had the eggs benny and I had the scrambled eggs with asparagus. All served with yummy sides like roasted tomatoes, spinach, potato rosti, baked beans, etc. Each brunch item is $10 - excellent value!

We will be back to try dinner ASAP!!!

High hopes...long wait!
Submitted Thursday, November 6, 2008 - 12:06pm [Dine in]

I had read the reviews here and was so excited to try this place!
I wanted to love it!

We arrived about 7:15 on a busy Wednesday night and managed to get a table for 2 straight away. We were promptly offered water and had our orders taken by a friendly French waiter. We sat for about 40 minutes waiting for our appetizer, and were then brought a basket of bread. 15 minutes later, another basket of bread and an offer of a free glass of wine which was a nice touch... but man, we were getting hungry for more than white bread! When our appetizer arrived (the onion tart) it was slightly burned and not as yummy as we'd hoped. Our entrees arrived another 25 minutes later. My bf's lamb was great, but my salmon special's potatoes weren't fully cooked (a woman at the next table had the same complaint and sent hers back!) and it was very salty. Good value for the money - but the incredibly long wait was just too much. We left the restaurant 2 hours after arriving!

Our lovely waiter was telling us other diners how backed up the kitchen was, and thanking us for our patience (after our meals had arrived) We would have appreciated being warned and given the choice of staying or not, as we hadn't planned on a long dinner. I understand this place is new and I hope they manage to iron out the glitches that might have led to the time thing. It's such a nice spot, the ambiance is great and the service was friendly - but the food wasn't phenomenal and the wait was just too long.

Merry Cash for Marrakech!
Submitted Sunday, October 21, 2007 - 3:25pm [Dine in]

This place is beautiful but very expensive for what you get.
My partner and I popped in on a whim during a torrential rainstorm the other night, attracted to the gorgeous, warm ambiance and colors. We were greeted and seated promptly even though it was a Friday night and we didn't have a reservation. The menu looked very interesting and we chose to have a couple of appetizers and share them rather than have mains, thinking we would come back another time to try them. We were intrigued by the Morrocan red wine listed at $16 a glass and thought it would be an amazing drop. We also chose the prawn and scallop appetizer for $16 (note the lack of plural: literally, one prawn and one scallop) and the golden beet salad at $11. When we ordered, we were offered bread which we said yes to as well. Overall, even though the food was indeed delicious, the portions were tiny for the price. Also, the wine, at $16 a glass, was not outstanding by any means.
We liked the ambiance and flavors of this restaurant but it's definitely a place to go for people with lots of merry cash that don't mind not getting value for money!
