Lolita's South of the Border Cantina1326 Davie Street, Vancouver
I need my Lolita fix
Submitted Saturday, November 3, 2007 - 6:26pm [Dine in]

It's darn good. We go back again and again, rarely straying from the fish taco's. Ceasar salad is also tasty. Friendly staff, chilled place, packed in, a little noisy, but that's all part of the charm. Consistently good, and the place has a great vibe. Only negative is that I found their margarita's are way too sweet, kinda disappointing considering, but that's ok, they have a mighty fine selection of Tequilla.

Lolita, I'll see you soon

You expect the best, and you are certainly paying for it, 2+ times more than any other Sushi place in town I'd say. Lets start with the interior, the old location was nothing more than a shack, the new one, is quite modern, comfortable, but not really the wow factor I expected for The Sushi Man in town. I was expecting modern, west coast, japanese, but it seems more like an modern airport bar.
The food-high quality, careful preparation, fresh and can not be questioned. I feel like I can get comparable quality sushi at Okada or Yugi's for 1/2 price or less.
The vibe - the well heeled, the expense accounters and the curious or special occassioners. You'd have to have deep pockets for this to be your neighbourhood sushi joint or take out place.
The service- well, not traditional japanese, that's for sure.
Overall, it was very good sushi but I felt like I could have had the same quality food and as enjoyable experience elsewhere for far less $$

One of the best
Submitted Tuesday, November 7, 2006 - 10:45am [Dine in]

As you can tell from the rating, this place is as good as it gets as far as I'm concerned. The strange thing about it, it's not always that busy and it's not necessarily the trendy happening choice, it's really a bit of a mystery. But as far as food, service and ambiance, I don't think it gets much better. Oh, and the wines for a restaurant at this level include some reasonable and fairly priced options, unlike some places that force you into overly expensive choices.

Nuff said.

Service with a frown
Submitted Monday, October 9, 2006 - 12:00pm [Dine in]

Maybe it was just an off day for this guy. But wow, the 4 of us have maybe never experienced such bad service. The restaurant itself nice, and the food was pretty good. We had a pizza that reminded us of our recent trip to Italy. Salads were fresh if maybe on the smallish size. Main courses were mostly good, tenderloin and lamb dishes were tasty. All 4 people thought that there was too much salt.

Although good service can save a bad meal, the reverse is not true. We were in no rush, but when we finally were ready to order, we waited another 15-20 minutes before our waiter graced us with his presence. My friends wife asked what comes with the rack of lamb, the waiters response: Whatever it says on the menu that comes with it. To which she responded, but it doesn't actually say and then he started backtracking... charming.

The salad drop at our table was like a 100 yard dash to drop the plates (2 servers) and then disappear back into the night. The only problem was that they had taken our cutlery from the pizza we had shared. With nobody in flagging distance, we got up and grabbed cutlery from another empty table and proceeded rather than waiting who knows how long. We eventually flagged a busboy to tell our waiter we would like some fresh ground pepper on the remaining portions of our salads.

Entrees came and were quite good, but by that point, it was too late for redemption. If the service had been even up to semi respectable levels, we would probably have gone back to try this place again. But, if this is the level of service that offered, I think we could get friendlier and more professional service at Denny's.

Take my picture Savoury Coast, cause I ain't coming back. Best of luck if this is the level of service that you offer on a regular basis.

Okada Sushi Japanese Restaurant888 Nelson Street, M101, Vancouver

If you drove by, you'd probably never see it up there on the second floor. But, this guy is a real pro, and we often find more Japanese patrons per capita here than any other place we go to. Authentic, Quality, Fresh and just plain superior is how I would describe the sushi.

Interior is clean but dated, lights are bright, but Sushi may be the best we've ever had in this town, and that includes Tojo. Nice patio with waterfall in the summer, not super scenic, but pretty nice for downtown.

Yuji's Japanese Tapas2059 W. 4th Avenue, Vancouver
We always come back
Submitted Tuesday, April 11, 2006 - 1:21pm [Dine in]

We've tried lot's of Japanese places. And this place consistently performs. Sushi is quality and fresh, as vs. quantity/cheap variety, which works for us. Service is always super friendly, Tomo and others always cheerful and helpful. Love the black/white tofu and the deep fried tuna roll - a must have - sounded funky the first time but trust me on this one.

Place is clean, there is asthetic value to how they serve, what they serve and even the plates that they serve it on. This place and Wabi Sabi are the two places that come to mind for this level of food and service. If you just want great Sushi, we also think Okada is great, but not so much for ambiance.

Quality food, reliablity, and service keep us coming back for more...

Great addition to Main St
Submitted Friday, March 31, 2006 - 12:16pm [Dine in]

Fairly ecclectic menu, not sure how to categorize, solid home cooked comfort food/tapas - varied menu. Fresh interior decor, a diner with style. Friendly staff, only complaint was they were busy and our food wasn't super hot. But it was good and the effort is there. Would definitely go back. These guys are committed to the business as they were with Tagerine and it shows...

Place is nice enough inside, neighbouly and family friendly. Food is just plain sub par - if you want cheap pasta, you'd be much better off at Chianti down the road and you'll get service to boot. My spaghetti with meatballs had pasta clumps stuck together and was just plain not good. The panini my guest had was also not good. Salads were ok. It's Italian food done by a North American franchise mentality. If you just need to fill the hole - sure, but there are much better choices for the same money. Did not try the pizza. But good luck to this place, we'll let the market decide its fate.

It's a neighborhood Pub more or less. Watched a pay per view game on a sizable but otherwise not impressive screen. Friendly staff and feel to the place. Interesting interior and mix of materials. Food is ok, Portobello Mushroom burger with lot's of garlic but crappy white bun. Nachos were cheap (on special) but lacklustre. Seems like there is a lot of competition in this market for burgers etc. and Earls and Cactus Club really own this town when it comes to quality product for the $ and consistency. On a positive note, it's better than Red Robin, but that's not saying much. And does have it's own unique atmosphere.
