White Spot752 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
Not Too Shabby
Submitted Monday, July 22, 2013 - 9:46pm [Dine in]

I went here recently to give White Spot another try, as the last location on Georgia Street in Downtown Vancouver was a complete disaster. But this location was a lot better than it's counterpart south of the the Lion's Gate bridge.

Food: I ordered the regular 1/4 lb. legendary burger with lettuce and tomato. It was pretty good, not too long of a wait time. The beef was tender and juicy and was not drowned in their Triple O's Sauce. My only complaint was that the tomatoes were not too fresh, but nothing TOO bad. The fries were certainly better than the last location; they were crispy and fresh, and not soggy. Very satisified overall.

Service: I was immediately responded to the minute I walked in the door. Short wait time for food, about 10 mins. The restaurant was about 1/4 quarter full, so not too busy. The server was friendly and helpful, and told me exactly what I asked about. She was very attentive and responded to my requests very quickly. About halfway through the meal, she politely said that another waitress would be "taking over" for her. The next waitress was as polite as the last.

Value: I believe that I received good value for what I ordered. The burger was pretty fresh and satisfying. The fries were not overly crispy, nor were they soggy. I would definitely pay the price of the burger if this is what I would receive anytime.

Ambiance: Pretty good, nothing special here. Everything was pretty clean, and the booth that I sat at was comfortable. Tables were wiped down, and everything else was clean. There were about 3 TV's, all side by side, showing sports by the bar. I think it's somewhat annoying that the moment you walk in you face the bar, which is by the kitchen where you find waitresses and waiters scurrying back and forth, but if you don't sit there, it's not a problem.

Nice job, White Spot. Nat Bailey would be proud.

Mikado Sushi5353 Headland Drive, West Vancouver
Favorite Sushi Place in West Vancouver
Submitted Saturday, July 13, 2013 - 8:52pm [Dine in]

This place has it all. The food is top-notch and the service is incredible. I came here recently to dine, and I left very satisfied.

The moment I walked in, I was greeted with a smile and a server immediately appeared holding menus. There were about 2 other tables occupied, so this was very fast. I was able to have the option to choose where I wanted to sit, and I thought this was very considerate. The chef and waitress are very friendly and happy, and accommodate you extremely well.

Food: I ordered edamame and a sushi box. I also ordered water which was immediately poured for me and served cold. The waiting time was very fast, at around 6-8 minutes. The sushi box consisted of 1 miso, salad, assorted tempura, 4 california rolls, 1 piece of shrimp, tuna, and salmon sashimi each, and a bowl of rice. The edamame came first and it was hot, fresh, and not over-salted. The misos were also hot and fresh, and were not too watery or salty. The tempura was hot, crispy, and flavorful, and it also came with a special dipping sauce. The california rolls were exceptional. Each piece was very fresh and tasted amazing. The sashimi was very good, although the shrimp portion was a little small, however, the tuna and salmon portions made up for it. The rice was also hot and fresh. They also provided the option of light soy-sauce, which was very nice.

Service: The waitress was extremely attentive, friendly, and helpful. My requests were immediately taken care of, and she was happy to assist in any way. I didn't wait very long for my food, which was amazing since I was not the only one being served. This service is definitely what brings me back, along with the food.

Ambiance: The restaurant is small, with about 6 tables and window-seat bar area that seats about 3. The floors were clean, and the paint was not peeling on the walls. The tables were not greasy or dirty, such is the feeling that they immediately clean them after you leave. The whole place had a very calming and relaxing atmosphere, with the light classical music playing in the background. The place did not smell of fish or seaweed too, which was a plus. The bathrooms were clean and did not smell bad, as they provided air freshners and scented candles. This place is very charming, even though it is small.

Value: I feel that I received good value. The food was very good and fresh. The sushi box was $10.95 and the edamame was $4.25. I believe that the edamame was a little too pricey, as the portion wasn't THAT big. However, at least the portion sizes weren't extremely small. But for food this good, I would definitely pay this price, except maybe for the edamame.

The place definitely keeps me coming back. I will always come back to this charming little restaurant, hungry for more.

Lynn Canyon Cafe3690 Park Road, North Vancouver
Good Location, Bad Food
Submitted Friday, July 12, 2013 - 3:58pm [Dine in]

I recently came here after hiking Lynn Canyon and walking along the suspension bridge. It's a really good location as it is in the park and right by the suspension bridge. I was hoping for a place that served good food and was charming. I was extremely disappointed.

The moment I walked in I saw a cramped, busy, greasy, and a loud diner with extremely dirty tables. Hoping to escape all of this, I chose to dine outside. This is one of the smartest moves. The air is so much better and you can see the forest and hear the water cascading down the rocks. The moment I sat down, I immediately had to request a server to clean the tables. The server wiped the tables down with VINEGAR. I wondered whether this was an ecological thing or whether they didn't want your food to taste like soap, as it came in paper, not on a plate or anything.

I ordered the chicken burger which was $7.38 which is a pretty good deal, but I should have paid a lot less for what I received. Since this was the only place that served food close by, I was happy it was there. They've limited their menu to hotdogs, hamburgers, fish and chips, and coffee. The food came in 10 minutes and luckily there were newspapers on the table left from the previous customer. It was wrapped in one of those checkered paper wrappers and it immediately fell out onto the table when I opened, not good wrapping at all. They seemed to put barbecue sauce and pesto sauce TOGETHER on the burger, which was a terrible combination. I immediately asked for another one with no sauce and luckily, they obliged. The second burger took a lot longer to make, which didn't make sense to me as they were eliminating 2 ingredients. When it finally came, I was most displeased. The lettuce fell out onto the table and the tomato was not fresh at all. I ordered extra pickles and they put about 3 on. The chicken was extremely salty and was burnt on one side. I'm pretty sure they just used a packaged patty. The only plus was the whole wheat bun. I ended up paying for toasted bread, as the rest of the burger was terrible.

Service wasn't that bad, except for the second time. This is one of those places where you pick up a metal stick with number, so there wasn't an actual server. I think this place is overpriced, as what you are getting is not quality food at all.

Dundarave Sushi2459 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
Great Value and Great Food
Submitted Thursday, July 11, 2013 - 5:13pm [Dine in]

I found this place when I was searching for a sushi place that was inexpensive, but still very tasty. I was not disappointed. I ordered the chicken teriyaki bento box, and edamame. I asked for no tea, as I don't like it, but it still came anyway. ???

The server was kind, though a little rushed as it was semi-full when I got there, at lunchtime. She was a little vague and distant, but she spoke English well, and she had a pretty good memory, as she didn't write my order down, or anyone else's for that matter. This place is very small, with about 8 tables. There were menus all over the walls and the paint was peeling on the walls where I was sitting.

The food came very quickly, and it was very fresh and tasty. The tempura was crisp and hot, and the chicken teriyaki was not slathered in sauce, nor was it completely dry. It was pretty tender except for some of the outside pieces. The salad that came with the box with fresh and again, was not drowned in dressing. Since I received the edamame first and since it came in a reasonable portion, I was about halfway done before the main course came. This too was very fresh, hot, and did not have gallons of salt poured on it, As the ambiance is not too charming, I would recommend ordering an appetizer to keep you busy as there is nothing to look at there, and especially if you are really hungry.

The price was very fair. I felt that I got great value for the food I received. I would recommend this place to anybody who loves great sushi at a low price. Although, I would advise take-out. The dining experience is worth a lot more not eating in the restaurant. I would definitely come here again.

White Spot1616 West Georgia Street, Vancouver
Pretty Good Restraunt
Submitted Thursday, June 17, 2010 - 12:08pm [Dine in]

I have always loved White Spot and since me and my family were hungry, stopped by here. We waited by the front door for someone to serve us but no one came. My mother decided to march up to the kitchen and asked to be seated. Ironically, as soon as we were there, a server came to us (probably didn't want us to tell the manager) holding menus and led us to a table. I ordered the Pirate Pack and waited for 10 minutes which wasn't bad because I ordered when she asked us if we wanted any drinks. The food was pretty good but I thought the croutons on my Caeser Salad were hard. When I asked for chocolate milk (most White Spots have) the waitress replied that there wasn't any. So, I just ordered plain milk instead. It tasted terrible. I didn't know if it was skim milk or something mixed with regular milk. It just tasted like water.

I think that I will come here again sometime but not order milk anymore.
