Hy's Encore637 Hornby Street, Vancouver
Meat and Potatoe
Submitted Wednesday, November 27, 2013 - 12:12pm [Dine in]

If you like meat and potatoes that is what you'll get... and not much else. No garnish, no choice vegetable on the side and no extra's what so ever. My fillet Mignon was however cooked to perfection, but it's nothing that my boyfriend can't do at home on the BBQ. The Hy's signature steak my boyfriend had was a low grade cut of meat that was rather fatty and stringy. When the server came around to dress our baked potatoe I had to fish through the mountain of sour cream in order to find the potatoe below. There was nothing special about the dessert menu, the cheesecake was average. However they had a respectable wine list and the ambiance was cozy, quiet and intimate. There wasn't much here that set them apart from the Keg... except for the price.

I was sad to see one of my old favorite breakfast places go and be replaced with yet another sushi restaurant... but this is a welcome addition to Mount Pleasant!

It is a quiet and comfortable place. Though it wears most of the decor of the previous restaurant Sol's it is a bit sparse. But what it lacks in ambiance is makes up in food and service.

If you are a fan of the bento box give this one a try! Their California rolls are top notch, the salad on the side (that I usually avoid) was a fantastic surprise! It was tasty and brought a bit of class to the bento box experience (came with beet & darker greens). They did not serve Miso soup (as you typically get with box meals) but I didn't miss it! The teriyaki was the best I've had in Vancouver so far. Their custom rolls were well made and a tasty mix of flavours! The portions were perfect...Writing this review is making me hungry, I think it's time for me to go back!

The kitchen staff were smiling and joking around - they definitely like their job! The service was fantastic! Great recommendations and really on the ball.

It'll cost you a buck or two more than your average sushi kitchen.... but it's worth it!

Give this place a try!

I always try to go to a place twice before I give it a bad review. It was a waste of my time and money both times!

Service: The staff seemed too overloaded to crack a smile or even speak to me even though the restaurant was only 1/4 full. It took a long time to be seated and have anyone take my order. The glass or water I asked for right as I sat down came after my meal. No one came by to ask me if I needed anything or even delivered my bill. I had to walk up to the counter and ask for it specifically... both times!

Food: The gomae was horrid. more sauce than spinach and it was greasy. The rolls fell apart and did not taste fresh at all. The sashimi was frozen the first time I went and poorly cut. The miso was so salty it was inedible. ...and I like salt. Sushi should not be their specialty! I felt ill for the rest of the day on my second visit.

Ambiance: The interior had a bit of a funny smell to it. The outside patio had those cheap white plastic chairs you can get from Canadian Tire that were hard to move on the concrete and were uncomfortable for eating at the mismatched tables that were at the wrong height.

Value: If I had no taste and didn't care about the service or ambiance.... the price was ok for filling my stomach but I would recommend going to ANY OTHER sushi restaurant and pay essentially the same price for actually good sushi at a welcoming place. There are so many in this town there is no excuse for bad sushi.

Caffe Rustico3136 Main Street, Vancouver
A real community gem
Submitted Wednesday, January 20, 2010 - 6:33pm [Dine in]

This was the first place I went to when I moved to Vancouver. The people here are amazing! Every time I go in the owner introduces me to someone new. When I want to stop in for a small coffee or a little snack I find myself sitting there for hours chatting away with the staff or the other customers - it is truly a rare experience in Vancouver.
The coffee is uniquely rich and intense, never burnt or watery - you can tell they take great pride in their coffee.
It is a wonderful place to spend a sunday afternoon.
