Doing everything right
Submitted Thursday, July 25, 2013 - 11:38am [Dine in]

This place does everything right. Whether it is from service to the food, they know how it’s done.

As already mentioned, the interior design is amazing, there’s no question about it. But for a change, my wife and I decided to sit out on their patio. And let me say, their patio is equally as appealing as the inside. The feel is as if you are in a secret garden overlooking the ocean. Unlike the other restaurants here in Langley, you are not immersed in a parking lot, which is a definite plus.

The service has always been exceptional. She was friendly, had a great personality, and just ‘well put together’. It’s hard to explain but all the servers here are beautiful but in a classy way. Even by looking around, you can tell that the staff enjoys working here.

Our server suggested some new items that they featured off of their ‘feature menu’. It’s nice to see a Greek restaurant changing things up a bit. I decided to go for their two-way pork medallions. This was a good combination as each medallion was topped with a fig sauce (wow), and the other with a peppercorn sauce. My wife decided to have appetizers of the Mini-feta burgers and a spanakopita as her main meal. No complaints there, as the mini-burgers were homemade and the spanakopita was made of fresh ingredients.

Overall, we had a great evening at Galini. We ended up spending hours out on their patio, and as an added plus, the heat lamps were turned on, and blankets were given to us as the sun began to set. The portions are great – plenty for leftovers for lunch the next day, and a definite recommendation for all to come try this place out.

A Wonderful Time
Submitted Saturday, June 29, 2013 - 12:41am [Dine in]

My wife and I decided to try this establishment, and we were pleasantly surprised.

The restaurant itself was packed at 5:30pm, but we ended up being seated right away. Service was very friendly and helpful, she was attentive and always had our wine glasses filled.

The menu is small, but luckily there's weekly features to always keep things interesting. We started with the poutine, and it was very good. The gravy was flavourful, and the sliced beef? was a nice added touch. The platter was also amazing. It was huge with a variety of pasta, salmon, rib-eye etc. Normally at these type of places you'd think that there would be smaller portions but both my wife and I were satisfied with the amount of food, and we left with smiles on our face.

Overall, the experience was very nice. The ambience was given a rating of 3 stars - not that it wasn't trendy or clean, but because of the small space, it was almost too compact. But I guess you can't do much to change that in a small place. Nonetheless, whenever we are back in Yaletown, we will definitely make it a point to stop by again!

Okay, but nothing special.
Submitted Saturday, October 1, 2011 - 12:01pm [Dine in]

Like I said in the title, it was okay, but nothing special. It didn't have that "wow factor". It wasn't extremely horrible, but it wasn't anything that would separate itself from the other chain restaurants. Ironically, it reminded me exactly of Moxie's (and not because it's in their old location).

To begin with, the menu was sort of plain. It had your standard hamburgers, salads etc. Nothing interesting except for the new header called Wok. I asked the server what Wok was and she gave me a blank stare and said "Oh, it's like umm...(made a hand movement as if she was flipping a pan) in the pan". So I figured it was similar to a stir fry. I opted to try the szechuan beef while my wife had the salmon spinach salad.

Upon arrival of the food, the portions looked extremely small. My szechuan beef Wok had a cup of rice, beside some sauce topped with the 'beef'. I guess I was expecting some nice beef tenderloin strips like you would have at some Asian restaurants, but instead, I got deep-fried beef strips cut up (similar to chicken strips). My wife's salad was just a salad, can't really say anything about that...

The service was okay. I'll give her credit, she did warn me that my meal was spicy. But aside from that, she lacked personality and when asking her certain questions she just gave me that blank stare.

With regards to ambiance, they didn't change much of the interior. Some booths were removed, which opened the place up, but other than that, I think they were on a tight budget.

Overall, it was okay, it had nothing that would make me want to come back here. It was just a standard chain restaurant trying to compensate for their food/value by having the servers dress in skimpy clothing.
