Golden Spike Pub, The3224 St Johns St, Port Moody
Won't Be Returning
Submitted Sunday, May 1, 2011 - 10:19am [Dine in]

There was nothing remarkable about the Golden Spike pub. It was overcrowded, dingy and outdated. It looks like the only thing that has been renovated in the last 20 years is the bathroom. The food is your typical lazy pub fare. You can tell the meat was frozen, the salad dressing tasted like it was out of a Kraft bottle and the menu is so boring. Unfortunately they do not serve blended drinks either. The only good thing was our waitress, who managed to remember everything and took good care of us despite how busy it was.
My biggest complaint was about the wrist stamps. When we arrived we took a seat, no one checked our IDs or provided us with a stamp. Hours later when we had to go to the bathroom or out for a smoke we were then required to hunt down our waitress, switch our credit cards for our IDs which she had to keep for our tabs, and then go get our IDs scanned and go through the Barwatch process at the front door to get a stamp. This was frustrating for us, our poor waitress who had enough to do and the door girl. They should have required everyone to get a stamp upon entry to save everyone the hassle later. Overall I would say this place is not worth going to.

Toratatsu735 Denman, Vancouver
A New Favourite!
Submitted Thursday, August 7, 2008 - 1:38pm [Dine in]

I loved going to Clove and when it closed I was disappointed but I'm glad Toratatsu took it's spot! They are open late, serving food and drink, the prices are reasonable and the place is pretty funky. I recommend the Negitoro Avocado, it's delicious! The Ebi Chili Mayo is the best I've ever had, the prawns are just huge. Their chilled sake in the live bamboo shoot for $9 is awesome. I highly recommend this place, and will continue to go!

Vera's Burger Shack1181 Denman Street, Vancouver
Always Good!
Submitted Thursday, August 7, 2008 - 1:33pm [Dine in]

We have been going to Vera's a lot lately and have always enjoyed our meals. The burgers are not frozen, all the ingredients are fresh and delicious. They actually advertise that the perfect burger is pink in the middle, just like a steak! You can see them grilling the burgers and they are clearly not frozen. As for the service you get what you give. I can completely understand why the staff get frustrated when customers neglect to get ready for their order. There are signs asking you to pick your toppings etc before getting up to the till yet so many don't! I've seen people stand at the register for 5 minutes debating what to put on their burgers while a huge line builds up behind them! How can you not get frustrated? I will continue to go to Vera's and recommend you do the same!

White Tower Restaurant1359 Robson Street, Vancouver
Great Hangover Breakfast!
Submitted Thursday, August 7, 2008 - 1:26pm [Dine in]

Well the place certainly isn't much to look at, but if you're in the mood for some good old classic bacon and egg breakfast than this is it! I ordered the Morning Breaker which consists of 2 eggs, 3 sausages, 3+ pieces of bacon, 4 pieces of toast, a mound of hash browns and a pancake for $8.95! Everything was cooked to perfection, the pancakes were fluffy, the bacon crispy but not overdone and the hash browns were great. The restaurant space has so much potential, but seriously needs to cut down on the fake plants which litter the place. They actually a pretty nice large patio with beautiful grape vines scaling the walls. Our waitress was friendly, and attentive. I will definitely return to the White Tower.

Red Dragon Chinese Eatery4369 Main Street, 105, Whistler
Worst Chinese Food I've Ever Had
Submitted Tuesday, March 18, 2008 - 8:08pm [Dine in]

We ordered take out from the Red Dragon and I have to say it was the worst Chinese food I’ve ever had. I live in Vancouver so there are plenty of good and bad places to get Chinese food and this is the worst. We thought they got our order wrong because we couldn’t recognize the Kung Pao chicken dish. The only remotely edible dish was the fried rice which wasn’t even good. We ordered BBQ chow mien, Kung Pao chicken, hot & sour soup and finally the house fried rice. Somehow that cost us $60! For takeout! I advise for everyone to stay away from this place!

Teppan VillageUnit 304 4293 Mountain Square, Whistler
Entertaining but Overpriced Food
Submitted Sunday, March 2, 2008 - 3:36pm [Dine in]

We went to the Teppan Village for a huge birthday party and overall we had a good time! It is a very interactive dining experience as the chef’s cook the food right at your table. The menu is quite small and offers sushi, seafood and steak. The food is overpriced, as you are paying for the elaborate show the chefs put on.
I had the Village Special Dinner for $38, which was a sad little lettuce salad, a small bowl of miso soup, a small bowl of plain steamed rice, a heap of bean sprouts and 4 tiger prawns and 8 pieces of bite size teriyaki chicken. The best thing was the pieces of bite size filet mignon. It was one of the cheaper items on the menu; other items go up to $60. The website shows a dissimilar menu to the one at restaurant. The best thing about this restaurant is the service; our party was so large we had 2 waitresses and 2 chefs! I would recommend this restaurant for large groups, birthdays, corporate or business dinners but I can’t see myself going there again.

Elements4359 Main St., #102B, Whistler
One of my All Time Favourite Places!
Submitted Sunday, February 24, 2008 - 3:01pm [Dine in]

Elements is my absolute favourite place to eat in Whistler! I cannot say enough good things about this place, the service is fantastic, the atmosphere and décor is sexy and fun, and the food is just incredible. My boyfriend and I regularly go for a romantic meal out or for the best breakfast of our lives. I have never had a better breakfast. The menu is constantly changing and evolving but I have always enjoyed every single thing we’ve ordered. The drinks are great too! And the desserts are to die for.
I always get the Belgian Chocolate Mousse Pyramid and my boyfriend always gets the special crème brulee. For breakfast the various eggs benedicts are amazing, try the Dungeness crab benny with citrus Hollandaise sauce or the Brie and ham stuffed French toast. They do not take reservations and there is often a wait so get there a little early. I recommend this restaurant to everyone!

Seven4314 Main Street RR 4, #8, Whistler
Bland, Uninspired Food and Unattentive Service
Submitted Sunday, February 24, 2008 - 2:34pm [Dine in]

My boyfriend and I went to Seven for a nice romantic meal, and we were disappointed. Thankfully we had a gift certificate so we didn't have to pay a cent! Everything was just so absurdly mediocre. We are not terribly hard to please nor did we expect a 5 Star dining experience. Our waitress was nice but not very attentive, she repeatedly walked by empty handed but neglected to collect the empty glasses and dishes that had accumulated.

As for the food it was bland and uninspired. The pulled pork sliders were dry, the mussels were gritty and way past fresh, the fries were brown and limp, as if they had been left in the deep fryer for too long. Also they did not provide enough dip for them. I think in my entire life I have sent back maybe 2 or 3 dishes, and we had to ask her to take away the mussels and fries. Next were the spring rolls which I imagine were supposed to be heated through out but were cold in the middle, we also ordered some prawns which were pretty bland and you could tell the garlic was out of a jar. The only dish I really enjoyed was the tuna tartar with spicy avocado salsa. Mind you this dish is almost impossible to screw up. Next was dessert, I ordered the chocolate mousse, which was basically pudding in a mug. It was heavy, chunky and thick; it did not resemble or taste like mousse.

The only things I can say to credit of this restaurant is that the presentation of the food is quite nice but it in no way makes up for the way it tastes. Hopefully for Seven and their staff that these are just some growing pains since it is new to Whistler. One thing that greatly confuses me is why in the description on this website they say that Seven is in Silicon Valley but also says it’s in Whistler Village. Either way I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
