One of the best places for fine dining!
Submitted Sunday, February 3, 2013 - 11:08pm [Dine in]

It was a late Friday night we had a reservation for three at 9 o'clock. We arrived at the restaurant got greeted warmly and seated very quickly. One thing i did not like too much was the seating of the commune table, it is a bit crowded if people are sitting beside you. it is kinda cramped to many seats in a small area. We went for dine out 2013 it was great! We had a couple appetizers to start before we had the dine out menu come out.
One of the best pates i have ever ate.

For starters we had the bacon wrapped country pate with quince jelly, rhubarb, cornichons and rustic awesome bread. Was the best friking pate i ever ate, it is probably the best pate in town no jokes. My friend is friends with the chef and he said during culinary school he would always eat pate and always try to perfect it. Sadly David Gunawan is leaving :(, one of the best chefs in town. we also had a crazy concoction it was pork cheek with oatmeal, weird combo right? I was told this chef can make things that should not go together go together, was so friking good. The oatmeal was a great accompaniment to the pork cheek, it was a like a thick creamy sauce hmmm. Anyways for Dine Out all three of us had it, was a great deal for $38 dollar menu. I started with the smoke salmon roulade, it was good considering i really don't like smoked salmon but he made it taste great. It came with butternut squash and creme fraiche was great. For the entree i had the Best Dam short rib, i t was sous vide, it did not look like any short rib i have seen. It was not lacquered with sauce so it looked more l ike steak it came with a caramelized shallot, root veg and a nice demi glace. Finished with dessert slow cooked apple with clover honey ice cream, was really awesome. You have to try the co2 canister cheese cake my eating companion had it was AMAZING! Great dinner, if you want to indulge yourself for sure come here.

All in all Great dinner 5/5

Great funky Eclectic Joint
Submitted Sunday, February 3, 2013 - 9:15pm [Dine in]

Went here for a friends birthday dinner, and did not think to much about coming here. But the staff was friendly and the menu seem really well prepared, everything is almost made in house. Came here with about 10 people and first we started with drinks, they dealt with out big group well. It is a great laid back place if you don't want to go to a fine dining restaurant.

First started out with their salads, albacore tuna, sliders and various other items, which were prepared pretty well. Everyone enjoyed the starters while we were having a good time talking to each other, it is a great place to have a good time and have a nice dinner party. Then for entrees we had the burgers, steaks, sandwiches, and many others. The food was great, it reminds me of great places that do simple food well. Everything is made in the restaurant our server explained to us which is great. you do not see lots of places making a lot of there own breads and hamburgers and what not. IF you want to come somewhere that has a different atmosphere come to Subeez. I am sad that their other location is gone, was one of the favorite hang outs.

All in all a great night with great food, drinks and people.

Cafeteria2702 Main Street, Vancouver
Awesome Food!
Submitted Thursday, March 17, 2011 - 5:09pm [Dine in]

Went to this quaint little restaurant, in The month of February, this review is past its date, but i love cafeteria so much, I just wanted to put a review up. This was the Month of the Notorious Dine Out Vancouver 2011. I work in the Industry and really did not want the hassle, long line ups and Dine out menu, and decided to go to Cafeteria. Really Heard great things about the nice Chalkboard type menu, Having a daily fresh sheet as a menu. I went here with a friend, it was quite a busy place, and they do not take reservations. So me and my friend arrived around 7 o clock, was seated quickly by the hostess. A very small but charming dining area, My only complaint about the Restaurant is its a little hard to see the Menu on the wall, as they do not give u a hand written one. But starting off with the food, had the three course, 32.50. Very affordable, little bit cheaper then dine out. For sure the food would be alot fresher then a dine out menu, as per since dine out Vancouver is busy lots of restaurants Prep food ahead of time. I ordered the Beef tataki, veal scallopine on a mushroom and pea rissoto, and apple pannacotta. my friend order salad, lamb pot roast, peanut butter pie. The service was fast and prompt, very friendly and great. Food came out in good timing, in between coursing of our 3 course meal. The beef tataki was great!!!! if not excellent, lots of crunch from wasabi peas, and could not distinguish what else was on it. but with a great ponzu sauce. IF you don;t like raw beef you should try the tataki. Following on with the second Course, The best rissoto ive had by far in a restaurant and one of the best veal scallopines or veal dishes ive eaten. And end it off with a pretty good pannacotta. The evening was great, food was great, will probably be a regular. If you want superb food at a good price, Come to Cafeteria!!!!!!!!! SOOOO GOOD, i would say one of the best restaurants ive dined in. Thank you Chef Andrey Dubrach and his team!

Great Night Out for a Birthday Party
Submitted Wednesday, March 16, 2011 - 6:45pm [Dine in]

This was a while back in February, But it was so great i would like to write a Review. The Atmosphere is almost like a bar/lounge. The Kitchen layout is quite nice, you can see all the action going on in the kitchen. Seeing Chef Quang Dang commanding the kitchen quite nice. We were seated quite promptly with a very nice, informative server. Our group was quite big about 20 people, and they served us with ease. On with the food, the food was quite good, one of the best Ive eaten in Vancouver. i ordered the lobster gnocchi, a must have, same recipe he made at C restaurant. with a nice thyme emulsion, was quite pleased. The best gnocchi Ive had. On with the Main course had the lamb sirloin with potato fondant, was quite good, very tender and great. Overall Good food and good night. Chef Quang Dang has brought the food up!

First Malaysian Suprise!
Submitted Tuesday, March 15, 2011 - 2:11am [Dine in]

We went to dinner on a rainy Wednesday, night with my parents. This restaurant is quite close to my house and brought friends to the restaurant to try it out. Pleasantly surprised with the food, since it is a small quaint and new restaurant. We ordered about 7-8 dishes amongst the 6 of us. The value was great, wish the portions were a bit bigger, but other than that the food was quite good. All of thought the food was not going to be that good, but we will be dining here again. We ordered hainan chicken, pineapple rice, beef brisket curry, chicken curry, roti, some greens forgot what it was. But there coconut rice, side dish was great. one fo the tastiest favored rices ever. We will be coming back here again. there Malaysian dessert was great. A great quaint place in the neighborhood, what we need near my house. Hopefully they stay in business for a long time, They are quite buzy on regular nights. But a great place to eat, if you have not tried Malaysian food come here. The customer service was great regarding that it is owned by a husband and wife. Very friendly and great atmosphere

Don't even go in here. Poor Managment
Submitted Friday, June 4, 2010 - 11:20am [Dine in]

The owner is a tyrant hes not nice, there's lots of reviews commenting about this owner named jack, he does not how to treat a customer. because the customer is always right, the customer is suppose to be always right
and is served to them properly. He treats his staff horribly, they are turning over in the kitchen like mad. They said that 26 covers is alot, please that is not even anything, I'm in the industry i can do 50 or more covers by myself ahahahha. Trust me the food is not fresh, i see them going to super store, there cooler is dirty as hell, everything on the floor not on racks. the crab cakes are not good made mostly with shrimp. Thanks guys just go somewhere else. minervas or anywhere else would be nice

Very Suprised For a Late Lunch
Submitted Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 5:58pm [Dine in]

Went there for a late lunch around 3 o clock today. was very surprised the waitresses are very friendly and very pretty, service was excellent. They also came to the table for a quality check of the food, i thought this palce was overrated, but the food was the decent. Our waitress was very nice, we all had entrees no appies. i ordered the ahi tuna burger or sandwich, which was with onion rings and a tomato kind of relish. it was very tasty and a very large portion, i would say one of the best sandwiches i have ever eaten in any other restaurants. example milestones, earls, cactus etc, i would say this is one of the best chains, I'm pretty sure this is the highest of quality of chain related food. Also my friends had the chicken club and Alfredo all looked good, except the alfredo looked a little small, but all pasta's in restaurants are pretty small plate size. All in all a good dining experience if your looking for something fast good and upscale come to joeys.

Aqua Riva200 Granville Street, Suite 30, Vancouver
Food was ok not outstanding very standard, for fine dining
Submitted Thursday, May 13, 2010 - 3:58pm [Dine in]

I went to aqua riva for a friends birthday a month ago and i thought the ambiance was really nice. Its a really nice restaurant the view of the water is nice. But i think this restaurant is a little bit overrated. i mean its nice, nice open kitchen i am in the industry so i know what kitchens should look like, awesome kitchen there. but anyways back to dinner the bread they broguht was great, but the tomato bruschetta looked like tomato barf no effence, it tasted like my aunt made ahahha. But the bread did taste fresh, anyways for dinner i ordered an appetizer and a main entree. For the food it might be a little over priced but the food is good, but not outstanding and anything that i could not make. I have to say for the appetizer the museels and clams in a thai broth was very good, except the fries were over salted, it was like they did not know how to season things, just dumped a whole pile of salt in it. other then that the appetizer was good very tasty thai broth. and for the main i had wood grilled tenderloin was very good, the dumplings were not the dumpling i thought they were more like beignets or tempura prawns. but overall the food was good, but the service lacked a bit. we did have a big table but our waitress looked like she did not wanna serve such a big group. but this restaurant is kinda overrated.

A nice Place on a hot day!
Submitted Saturday, June 6, 2009 - 2:38am [Dine in]

It was a good finish to a hectic day in the kitchen at VCC, taking the culinary arts course. A couple of classmates and i decided to go for lunch, on a very hot day. Thought it would be a lot cooler in nuba since i was baking in the heat, and well i was baking in nuba too. Some of us only wanted a light lunch so we ordered la feast which was excellent! pretty good, for the price can actually feed 3 people or 2 very hungry people. Cucumber water is an excellent exception to the cool hipster kinda place. the decor is very different like a little lebanese cave it was. the lebanese food was awesome particulary cuz it was vegetarian too, no meat and i was satisfied. the cauliflower, humus were excpetional so was the tatziki. hmm very good little niche place that i never thought of going too!
