After reading other daunting reviews of C, I was almost expecting to be treated like Dine Out Vancouver cattle: Get in, get out, you're probably not going to tip us well because your bill is lower! My boyfriend made reservations far ahead of time and was contacted today for confirmation. We called three times and after having wonderful silent conversations with their answering machine, we made the trek over, half-expecting to be turned away.
Fortunately, they kept our reservation for us, took our coats (wow!), and treated us to the finest service experience I've ever had in a restaurant. The servers were delightfully well-informed of the components of the dishes, which were small, albeit tasty and filling. They offered a selection of complimentary breads, which were tender but crusty (I am picky!), and made sure to keep my water glass at least half-full, which was definitely good, because I was ill and my itchy throat was bothersome.
The royale truffle soup, AAA striploin beef, sockeye salmon, chocolate and caramel macaroons, and passionfruit tart were definitely worth coming back for.
We were impressed by the stealthy use of a food scraper to pick up bits of food dropped on the table, and the contrasting decorum in both the men's and ladies' washroom. The bar "stools" were amusing, and it was funny to watch guests attempt to sit on them.
We left very full, satisfied, and pleased by the impeccable service. I would definitely come back to this restaurant after getting a raise from my boss!
