Chill Winston3 Alexander St., Vancouver
A step above
Submitted Thursday, June 25, 2009 - 12:01am [Dine in]

Tried Chill Winston on a rainy Wednesday. Great service, nice atmosphere and best of all we found the food to be a step above the average for the price. We tried a goat cheese and grape salad...tasty, with garden fresh lettuce leaves (not iceberg or spring mix). A friend had a thin crust pizza with asparagus and said it was very good. Another friend had the mussels with frites (they were excellent). We weren't too keen on the curry sauce though. I had the chicken stroganoff....very different...done as a deconstructed ravioli, with crunchy onion rings....very tasty. Very good selection of beer and wine. Great people viewing patio right in the heart of Gastown.....Jazz festival coming up. I'll be back.

Saltaire235 15th St., West Vancouver
Really disappointing
Submitted Thursday, March 5, 2009 - 8:04pm [Dine in]

Several of us dined here this week. We've eaten here before, but only for lunch in the summer and on the patio. We started with an appetizer of calamari 2 ways. It was fine, but nothing special. For mains, one of had the salmon....it was overcooked. Another had cioppino and found it satisfactory. Another had steak with macaroni and cheese (odd combo). She found the mac and cheese to be quite dried out. I had "seafood puttanesca". I expected it to be in a traditional spicy red sauce....not so! It was basically a butter sauce. All of my seafood was very overcooked and rubbery. The prawns even smelled a bit off. We were asked if we wanted bread, but were surprised that we were charged for it. All in all, we found it to be quite pricey and quite disappointing. We won't be back.

Grove Pub & Grill1489 E Hastings St., Vancouver
Great Pub Grub
Submitted Friday, October 24, 2008 - 7:18pm [Dine in]

This pub is located in the Waldorf Hotel. I've eaten here several times now and have been really impressed with the menu generally. Every day they have interesting specials...I've seen smoked salmon, cream cheese and capers on Russian rye, New Orleans style meatballs on focaccia and pulled oxtail soup with bean to name a few. The wait staff is very friendly and the place is bright and clean for a pub. It does get very busy around 3:30 though. Highly recommended.

Artful Dodger Pub, The2364 200th Street, Langley
Nice pub find in Langley
Submitted Thursday, August 14, 2008 - 10:35pm [Dine in]

My hubby and I went here for lunch last month. It really is quite a drive from where we live, but a pleasant drive on a sunny afternoon. We sat on the patio and I really appreciated the ambience with all of the flowers. I had the schnitzel burger and hubby tried the beef dip. He said his was tasty but complained to me that the beef hadn't been cut properly. My scnitzel burger was really good....makes me want to go back just the try the schnitzel dinner. Portions were large and my caesar salad was well dressed. Will definitely go back....but probably only during patio season.

Milestone's Grill and Bar20075 Langley Bypass, Langley
Just okay
Submitted Thursday, August 14, 2008 - 10:28pm [Dine in]

We tried Milestone's earlier this week....was a very hot evening so we opted for the patio. After about 15 minutes, however, we found it very chilly because it's so heavily shaded. We asked our server if we could move inside, but she very kindly moved a table into the only sunny spot overlooking the parking lot. We were happy enough with this and ordered another drink. Our food was very slow in coming...maybe over an hour. We ordered kobe sliders, caesar salad and butternut squash ravioli. Evidently our order was lost and our server very apologically said that our food would be comped. Really nice gesture. My comments aren't towards the service at all, but with the food. I found it to be quite mediocre. The sliders were just okay..I love the ones at the Cloverdale casino...they're awesome. The caesar salad didn't even seem to be dressed...just romaine and parmesan. The butternut squash ravioli came with a marinara which tasted really tinny. I wouldn't go back, but I would like to commend our great server!

Charlie Don't Surf15011 Marine Drive, White Rock
Nice place for lunch
Submitted Thursday, August 14, 2008 - 10:16pm [Dine in]

I've eaten lunch here a few times over the last couple of years. The service has always been prompt and the food is pretty standard pub-style far. Today I tried the lunch special of chicken, cheese and lettuce on baguette with fries. The sandwich and fries were tasty. The drinks were okay, but even with an Entertainment coupon it seemed to be a bit pricey....I guess we're paying for the location.

Reef, The1018 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Super place on the Drive
Submitted Thursday, August 14, 2008 - 10:12pm [Dine in]

Two of us dropped in here for an early dinner on the Drive. It always surprises me that many places aren't open until 5:00....I'd love to try other places on Commercial for lunch other than Stella's, Havanas and a few others. It was a sunny day so we wanted to sit on the east side on a deck so decided on The Reef. We shared the Fanny Bay mussel special, Caesar salad with fried capers and the goat curry. All were really tasty and along with the complementary bread (I think they're called Johnny Cakes) were definitely enough for 2 people. We even took a small doggy bag home. Drinks were exceptionally good. I'll definitely be back!

La Notte3307 Dunbar Street, Vancouver
Wonderful find in Dunbar
Submitted Tuesday, May 6, 2008 - 8:52pm [Dine in]

My daughter and I ate here last week after a long day of painting. We were starving and mentioned that to our waitress and she promptly brought some wonderful bread with oil and balsamic. We started with the Antipasto Della Casa for 2 ($13.95) and were surprised to see how many items were on the plate...prosciutto and melon, bruschetta, calamari and clams in tomato sauce. This was followed by a daily special...Caesar salad with scallops...very nice. For the main course we shared the fettucini con osso bucco ($14.95). The waitress automatically served it on two plates...large enough that we still took a doggy bag home. We ordered a bottle of B.C. wine from Barcello Canyon. It was very reasonably priced (I think $30) as were all of the wines on their menu. We were really pleased with the food and the service and we'll definitely be back to try their others offerings which include pizzas and seafoods!

Great food and people watching
Submitted Wednesday, April 16, 2008 - 5:15pm [Dine in]

We stopped here late Sunday afternoon for a light meal. At this time of the day they have a limited menu, but we had no trouble choosing something that appealed. We tried the mussels with chorizo, the olive tapenade and the seared tuna salad. The presentation of the salad was quite unique...done in a head of iceburg lettuce. The complementary bread was really tasty and the service was friendly and efficient. Best of all is the great view from the patio. We really enjoyed it!

Great neighbourhood place
Submitted Wednesday, April 16, 2008 - 5:10pm [Dine in]

Two of us dined here last night. We chose this restaurant as we didn't feel like driving. We were both glad we did. The food was all really good....hummus and pita was really delicious. The caesar salad was better that most I've tried...really fresh with good in-house dressing. I had a pizza that was really tasty. My daughter had the roast lamb which came with Greek salad, potato and rice. She said her dinner was really good as well. I really enjoyed the excellent service. The place was packed, but everyone seemed to be well looked after. We'll return.

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The4510 Still Creek Avenue, Burnaby
Still don't understand why it's so popular
Submitted Sunday, January 27, 2008 - 1:54pm [Dine in]

Tried the new Keg last week. It was absolutely packed...couldn't find a parking spot in the lot. We had to wait around 40 min. for a table so we waited at the bar. Although the food is solid, I would like a few more choices...the menu doesn't seem to ever change. I find it to be very pricey as well and because it was so full it was very noisy.

Nu1661 Granville St, Vancouver
Great DOV
Submitted Sunday, January 27, 2008 - 1:50pm [Dine in]

Two of us had the pleasure to try Nu last week. We opted for an early dinner as we had plans later. We were greeted warmly by a maitre d' who opened the door for us. A hostess took our coats and immediately seated us at a window table. Awesome views! We were quickly asked what type of water we wanted. We opted for the wine flight which was a good bargain at $17. My daughter had the shrimp albacore cake, the duck and caramel cake. All were very tasty. I had the squash soup, trout and pavlova. Only complaints I had was the trout could have been a bit warmer--tasty though. The meringue for the pavlova was a bit too sweet for me, but between the two of us everything got eaten. Service was friendly and not rushed at all. Would go back for a special evening.

Okay for a pub
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 4:44pm [Dine in]

I sure wish pubs would be more innovative with their menus. Hagar's has a wonderful location and view....food is just average. Their wit ale was good though. They've really cut back on the number of microbrews that they offer.

Asa Sushi2178 West 41 Avenue, Vancouver
Just okay
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 4:42pm [Dine in]

We went here a few weeks back for a late lunch. The sushi and tempura were fine (especially for the price), but the service was really lacking. Our waitress didn't seem to have any English at all....not only that, she didn't understand when we asked for Saki. We wanted to add to our order later, but had trouble getting any service even though it's a very small space and 3-4 servers were standing around. Will probably try another of the many sushi places in Kerrisdale.

Good Diner
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 4:38pm [Dine in]

Ate here a few weeks ago due to high ratings. It was a late lunch so didn't try dinner menu. Had bacon and tomato sandwich that came with soup or salad and fries. It think it was 6.95. Pale Ale on draft was 2.95! What a bargain!! I think dessert was included, but I declined. A step up in decor from most diners. All in all, I'd go back.

Great place for lunch
Submitted Thursday, December 20, 2007 - 2:29am [Dine in]

Five of us had lunch here this week. Great deal...about 30 choices on the menu (chicken, pork, beef, noodles) all for $6.95. For that you get a small bowl of soup, main course, salad and spring roll. I think that the waiter didn't speak much English so the service was a bit lacking. But altogether a great deal. Nicely decorated and clean washrooms.

Needs a facelift
Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2007 - 11:09am [Dine in]

Two of us went here for dinner last night. I found the menu to be quite strange......it seems that there are only a few items, repeated in a variety of combinations. I got the linguine with red sauce and my friend got the same with white sauce. Both dishes were tasty, but I thought a bit overpriced.
A major disappointment was the wine list. We only wanted a glass each, and the only local wine by the glass was some sort of Burgundy (the waitress couldn't tell me from where). It was far too sweet and fruity for our meal.
There was an odd odor in the place as well...not musty, but smelled of a cleaning product or room deodorizer. Not too appetizing. I for one won't be back when there are many more appealing places to try.

This was a treat!
Submitted Monday, November 19, 2007 - 10:42am [Dine in]

Three of us went to Clove on a very busy Friday evening. The place was packed, but we were seated quickly and got our drinks promptly. I had the ginger martini and found it a bit bland...was hoping for much more ginger flavor. One friend ordered the yam coconut soup and said it was fabulous. We shared 3 appies...corn fritters, edamame in filo (special) and one I can't remember (it was good though). Our food came quickly and our server was attentive and cheery. Will defiinitely go back.

Stella's stellar eggs benny
Submitted Tuesday, November 13, 2007 - 2:47pm [Dine in]

On the holiday weekend I had brunch here. I ordered eggs benny with spinach and tomato. My friend had the benny with shrimp and avocada. The eggs they use are free range and done to perfection. The hollandaise is "real". They are served on a croissant which I liked....made it a bit lighter than traditional english muffin. They came with a nicely dressed side salad and diced potatoes that had a spicy bite too them. I always enjoy their choice of Belgian beers. Service was good. I forgot my credit card and the waitress ran up the block to catch up with me to return it. Most would have kept it until I returned for it. Good on her!

Okay Greek
Submitted Thursday, November 8, 2007 - 3:59pm [Dine in]

4 of us had dinner here last night. Two of us had lamb chops, one had roast lamb and another had chicken souvlak. I found the lamb chops a bit overdone and not as seasoned as I would like. Potatoes, rice and salad were all quite standard. They were very skimpy on the tsatsiki....and it was full of onions with very little yogurt. For appies we had saganaki, calamari and spanakopita. All were fine. Service was good and washrooms were clean. Not the best Greek but not the worst.
