Arms Reach Bistro4390 Gallant Avenue, #107C, North Vancouver
friendly staff and cozy atmosphere
Submitted Friday, August 29, 2008 - 11:22am [Dine in]

My husband and I went to Arms Reach with another couple. It was a typical cold and soaking wet evening in Vancouver, so I was pleased to see they had cozy blankets available at the entrance and every table. We were seated promptly and our waitress was very friendly and helpful without being too "in-your-face." The food was delicious -- the AAA steak was the best I had ever seen. Creme brulee was delicious as well. Cozy, friendly atmosphere that still provides a "fine dining" feel. Excellent!

great place for good, quick sushi

A great place! Cheaper than going to Richmond Sushi and worth it if you don't mind a deli-style ambiance. The woman is so sweet and nice. The sushi pieces are big and not soggy at all. Get a bento box for the best value and variety.

fantastic

My husband and I were regulars here when we lived by UBC, and we still try to get out there from Richmond. The restaurant is small, but cozy which adds to the ambiance. The waiters are super friendly without being overbearing. Don't order any appys because your meal will be huge and you get chips and salsa anyway. I usually get the eggplant tostada with rice and beans -- it's huge! I always have leftovers for lunch the next day. It's so nice to sit on the patio on a late summer evening. An inexpensive date night (with gelato nearby for dessert!).

Sandbar Seafood Restaurant1535 Johnston Street, Vancouver
simply the best
Submitted Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 12:07pm [Dine in]

This a fabulous place for a night out on Granville Island with friends. Every time I've been here, the service has been great and the food has been amazing (get the salt prawns for an appy). They always make us feel so cozy. Try to sit on the upper floor -- on a clear night, the beautiful view sets the tone. A must try!!

Cardero's1583 Coal Harbour Quay, Vancouver
not bad
Submitted Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 12:01pm [Dine in]

My husband and I love the other restaurants under this ownership (Sandbar, Sequoia Grill, Seasons in the Park), so we decided to give Cardero's a try. We were meeting friends from North Van and chose Cardero's because it was showing the PPV Canucks game. We got there and found parking nearby. To our dismay, they told us something was wrong with the cable connection and the game wasn't going to be available all night -- AHHH!! The worst thing was that we have the PPV package at home, but it was too far to make it in time to watch a big portion of the game. So we watched college football instead.

The food was okay, nothing too exciting. I much prefer The Sandbar. It's also seafood, with a much better ambiance and incredible service.

Mongolie Grill8400 Alexandra Road, Richmond
no thanks
Submitted Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 11:54am [Dine in]

We went here for a friend's birthday. We had a table of about 15 on a very slow night. I went up to make my bowl and was thinking more about keeping it light so it wouldn't cost too much. It ended up being $11 for some noodles and veggies -- ridiculous. It wasn't fully heated on the grill, so some of the veggies were still cold and raw. The cooks seemed to be out of it, they didn't talk to anyone or each other, and when your meal was done they kind of scowled at you until you took your bowl. At the end of the night, the waitress mixed up all our drink orders, so it was a nightmare. Don't bother.

so yummy
Submitted Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 11:49am [Dine in]

My husband and I LOVE this place -- he has their number on speed dial! We dine in sometimes, but usually order out. We get veggie and chicken pakoras for appys. He gets butter chicken (medium) and I get aloo gobi (HOT) for entrees. We also get 2 orders of rice and 3-4 naan bread. Our total is usually around $40, which gets us both a full lunch for the next day at work too. Their food is delicious and the owners are so nice. The only thing about dining in is that they don't bring enough water during the meal. Other than that, it is one of our favorites.

Capone's Restaurant & Live Jazz Club1141 Hamilton St., Vancouver
Dine Out somewhere else
Submitted Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 11:45am [Dine in]

A group of 4 of us went to Capone's on a Saturday night on the first weekend of "Dine Out Vancouver." We had no problem making reservations online. When we got there, we had to wait 15 minutes for our table, even though there were other empty ones. Our waitress was great. She came to get our drinks order really quickly. When we were looking through the menus though, she told us that one of the three entree choices was no longer available. We got our appys quite fast. I had the acorn soup, which was quite good. I got the salmon for an entree, which was a bit dry, but otherwise tasty. It came with mashed potatoes and spinach, which was surprisingly good! Others at our table got the bison, which was good. My sister got the substitute entree (some sort of pesto pasta), which was okay. Our waitress came to get our dessert orders and told us that one of the two dessert options was no longer available!! When my sister and I said we didn't want the brownie, she did offer to get us a dessert off their regular menu for no cost, which was nice.

The restaurant itself is tiny. Where we sat, the tables are all in a long row along one wall with the bar and kitchen across the way. We couldn't really see the musicians (who took a 1/2 hour break pretty much as soon as we got there). The ambiance was okay.

As for the "Dine Out" experience, it was a disappointment. If I would have gone on a regular night, I would get an appy ($7-$11) and an entree (about $17) and no dessert, which would make my total meal cost $24-$28. A better deal than the $35 they charge for "Dine Out."
