Veneto's Cakes & Pastries7380 King George Hwy, #506, Surrey
Excellent cakes, sandwhiches and soups!
Submitted Friday, April 11, 2014 - 9:09am [Dine in]

I have been going to this place for several years now. Their made to order sandwiches and daily soups are great! They've kept me coming back for years. Their cakes are out of this world! So delicious and great variety, and none of them are sickly sweet like grocery store cakes. You must try their Italian cheesecake. It's nothing like your typically dense NY cheesecake. This is rich without being dense and heavy and the flavour cannot be beat! The one thing I'm not crazy about is their cookies though. I love a soft and chewy cookie and personally find theirs are too crispy and dry. Their muffins are also solid and gigantic in size! Skip on the cookies if you prefer soft and chewy and you won't be disappointed with anything you order!

Adesso Bistro1906 Haro Street, Vancouver
With so many great restaurants in Vancouver why waste your time here?
Submitted Monday, April 7, 2014 - 8:49am [Dine in]

My husband and I went here on Sunday for brunch/lunch. We had purchased the groupon they had going. The hostess asked if we had called ahead for a table to which we replied no. He then said he think's he can make something work, which was hilarious because the restaurant was empty except for 3 tables! Queue the pretentious attitude I guess. Nothing on the menu was super impressive but my husband and I both found something we were interested in. The food took a long time to come out, surprising considering how empty the restaurant was. My husband ordered the beef eggs benedict and I ordered the fried eggs, with potato and spicy tomato sauce. My husband's wasn't very good he said, not bad, just not good. Mine was the same. I'd be surprised if there was half a potato in there, it then had spicy tomato sauce added and two eggs placed on top before being baked in an oven. It was as simple as it sounds and lacked enjoyable flavour. I did like that both dishes came with a large serving of arugula on the side though. I contemplated whether I would honestly said we didn't' like either of our dishes when the server came to check on us. No need to think about that because no one checked on us until we were both finished! The décor would be good on a dark day/evening but wasn't great during the Spring. It wasn't warm enough outside to open the patio I suppose but their décor in a basement didn't seem right on a sunny day either. We definitely will not be going back!

Sweet Obsession Cakes & Pastries2611 West 16th Ave, Vancouver
Excellent dessert but the store is freezing at night!!
Submitted Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 2:42pm [Dine in]

My husband and I went to Sweet Obsession for dessert after having dinner at Les Faux Bourgeois for our anniversary. The interior has a very clean and fresh décor which was a nice change after originally planning on going to Sweet Revenge but upon walking in thought we walked into a 90 year old ladies place so we left. The selection at Sweet Obsession was great, something for every palette and the ability to look at the items in the display case is always helpful. The service was okay, not great but all the staff was VERY young, still in high school it looked like. The only problem was the place was freezing. On a cold night those large windows they have make the place less than comfortable. Everyone inside was wearing their coats and even then I wasn't super warm. I'd come back again during a warmer day but would avoid on a fall or winter evening. Too bad considering how great the desserts tasted and the great selection of beverages they had also.

Bistro 7213483 72 Avenue, Surrey
Great tasting local food with an awesome interior
Submitted Friday, August 16, 2013 - 1:27pm [Dine in]

This place is a hidden gem in Surrey. My husband and I checked it our for the first time last night with a Groupon. The food was excellent with many items made in house and most items locally sourced. Even their beer and wine list was exclusively local to BC, mainly the lower mainland. Items were great quality and the portion sizes were pretty good for the size. The interior looks really neat, not something you expect to find in Surrey at all. Our server seemed inexperienced and almost awkward/uncomfortable but it wasn't awful service. This place definitely could have been downtown. If you want a younger place to go with friends or even on a date check this place out! You won't be disappointed!

Dark Table2611 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Good food and a very unique experience.
Submitted Monday, July 15, 2013 - 11:30am [Dine in]

If you are thinking about going to this restaurant stop thinking about it and go! The experience was fabulous! I can't say it's the type of thing I'd do twice but it's defintiely a must do. The food was delicious! My husband and I both had the beef tenderloin for our entree and it was very tender and super flavourful. The portions aren't huge and we made the mistake of going already VERY hungry. We had bought the 3 course livingsocial deal. Bring your own bottle of wine if you go as I don't believe they have a corking fee. The service was amazing and it makes me appreciate even more the abilities of those without sight. It's true that all the servers are legally blind and I marvel at the patience they have with customers who are clumsily fumbling in the dark for the first time. Great food, great service, great experience go check it out!

Good food and excellent decor!

This restaurant looks soo good! Definitley not what you would expect for the area, this restaurant looks like it could be downtown Vancouver. Food is good and prices are great considering what a nice experience the restaurant is. The food came out quickly and was what you expect for Thai food. Also had nice presentation. Definitely eat here!

Chopsticks On Pho15325 56 Avenue (hwy 10), Unit 101, Surrey
Really fresh ingredients and a great experience
Submitted Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 10:15am [Dine in]

First thing I noticed about the food was how fresh the ingredients were. Something you don't often see at other Pho restaurants. There stuff is priced a bit more but it is worth it. There spring rolls are amazing, put all others we've tried before to shame. Decor is modern and a nice change from what you often get in the subarbs. Owners give great service also. Definitely a good spot to eat all round!

Red Door Pan Asian Grill2996 Granville St, Vancouver
Way too Salty
Submitted Sunday, November 14, 2010 - 6:26pm [Dine in]

My husband and I went to the Red Door on Saturday around 7pm. We had no problem being seated but got a table right by the kitchen. There is no wall blocking the sound so we asked to be moved to the high top tables besides the bar. That was much better. We ordered the chicken satays as an appie and the singapore flat bread. The chicken satays were quite salty but the flatbread was awesome. We ordered the shaking beef, kung pao chicken and pad thai. The shaking beef was tender and tasty but the kung pao chicken and pad thai were way too salty to eat. We tried a few pieces but couldn't eat it as it was totally over salted. When one of the employees took our plate away she asked if we wanted those two dishes packed up as they were fairly untouched. We said they were salty, she apologized and took them away. But later our server came back and said they had been taken off the bill. We really appreciated this. I hope it was just a bad night for the Red Door and that this isn't their regular recipe. The service was very attentive though and the menu had lots of great items.

Awesome food and nice atmosphere
Submitted Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 11:45am [Dine in]

My husband and I went here for dinner and the food was fantastic! The interior is pretty neat especially when we heard about the inspiration for the wall etchings. We will definitley be going back. I was surprised to see some older bad reviews, perhaps the restaurant has picked things up. When we went in early October it was solid all the way through.

Society Restaurant & Lounge1257 Hamilton St, Vancouver
Don't bother lots of way better restaurants for the price
Submitted Wednesday, September 8, 2010 - 9:38am [Dine in]

I first went to Society on a Stagette. I orderd a spiked milkshake which was very delicious. I also had poutine which was wayyy to salty to even enjoy. Others got macn cheese way to creamy and not enough flavour. Also the portoin was pretty small, especially considering the price. Service wasn't amazing and the drink selection wasn't too exciting except for the 2 drinks with cotton candy.

My husband and I decided to return for a date as the vibe of the restaurant insdie seemed cool and I didnt' want to judge it just on poutine and mac n cheese. I had the kobe beef lasagna and it was not good. My own lasagna is so much better. There was an overly strong cheese taste and nothing else really. My husband tasted it and didnt' even want to eat any of it even though he was stil a little hungry after his dish. He got the lobster pasta. Didnt' have much of a lobster taste and was too creamy and lacking in other flavours.

It seems to be a constant from our experiences and other reviews that the food isn't what it should be for the price and location. Vancouver has so many fabulous restaurants that I dont' understand how restaurants like this stay in business.

Although the resturanant has a nice look inside the music was so loud that we couldn't really hear each other talk across the table. Drinks were very slow to come and the service was subpar for the price.

All in all take your money elsewhere and you'll be happier. We also didnt' appreciate the few creepy and cocky servers.

Good Crepes in a nice and relaxing atmosphere

My husband and I went to this place on the weekend for the first time. It was very enjoyable with a nice relaxing atmosphere. It is very small inside though. There was a good selection of meal crepes and dessert crepes. We would definietly recomend this place to others. I can't say the value was amazing but it wasn't overpriced either.

Great food and good atmosphere
Submitted Tuesday, November 17, 2009 - 4:02pm [Dine in]

My husband and I checked this out on a Sunday night. Sat at the kitchen bar and had a great time. Warm ambiance was great on a cold rainy Vancouver evening. Tapas were good flavours good selection to choose from and good sizes. 3 was enough for the 2 of us and my husband was very hungry when we arrived. Service was great. Always someone taking away dirty places and the servers were helpful on picking dishes.

We will definitley come back!

Wouldn't have guessed it but great sushi
Submitted Sunday, October 18, 2009 - 3:30pm [Dine in]

My husband and I have see this place all the time but never guessed they would have good sushi. Stopped in there one night and the rolled sushi was awesome! Amazingly good prices too, 3 rolls and 1 cone for just under $20. Will definitely go back again. They also have all you can eat sushi but we didn't check that out.

My husband and I went here for brunch sat morning. We were seating at the last table when we arrived around 11 am. Food came quick and hot and was delicious. He ordered Cail Eggy's Benny and I ordered french toast with the berry compote. Would get both again! Service was very attentive. Decor was nice, nothing fancy though. Atmosphere was good also. May have found a new fav breakfast/brunch spot.
