Deep Cove Pizza4385 Gallant Avenue, North Vancouver
Worst value ever?
Submitted Wednesday, July 24, 2013 - 9:22pm [Take-out]

I find this place to be extremely over-priced, especially for slices of pizza. On my most recent visit I paid $10 for two slices of very mediocre vegetarian pizza and a water. According to the menu it should have been $9, but as with most pizza joints i was expecting some kind of combo discount. Alas, I was ripped off, although I would have felt ripped off even if I paid $9. Or $6.

The slices are all hidden behind the counter. You don't really see them until you pay and they are done being re-heated. They are usually far from fresh and have to be re-heated in the oven. It's understandable that they keep the pizza out of view because the vegetarian pizza was basically a couple of scraggly peppers, onion, cheap-tasting mozzarella and tomato. It reminded me a lot of the frozen pizzas you can get at the grocery store for about $5. And as I say, they are usually far from fresh and have to be put back in the oven.

I'm assuming they only sell slices to tourists and dummies like me who are unaware that they're getting ripped off. Shame on you, Deep Cove Pizza. I won't be taken for a sucker again. At least by you...

Veneto Pizza1839 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Tasty pizza!
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 1:43pm [Take-out]

I tried Veneto based on positive reviews. The pizza is great; very light crust and not doughy at all. My girlfriend and I planned to eat in, but after getting our own menus and waiting a while for any service we decided to take some pies to go. Further, there is much better deals on the take-out menu that aren't available for dining in. I wasn't too impressed with the service, as we would have had to go up to the till to order regardless of our intentions. It was partly oversight on our part, but our Caesar salad was covered in bacon bits, despite ordering two vegetarian pizzas. I know, complaining about bacon on anything is sacrilegious, but my vegetarian girlfriend didn't get any. Regardless, the pizza was great and Veneto will be on my list when I want pizza take-out or delivery.

Red Burrito1455 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Massive burritos!
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 1:22pm [Take-out]

I was quite impressed by my first visit to Red Burrito. Lots of options, and MASSIVE burritos! I was full for an entire day after downing one of those suckers. Definitely a decent value considering it felt like I had just purchased a concrete block.

Service was solid; I was waiting in line for a short while when someone from the back noticed and sprung into action to take my order. I'll definitely return when I need a quick gorging.

Fresh Slice1448 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Not a big fan.
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 1:14pm [Dine in]

In my opinion Fresh Slice is average at best. Toppings are sparse, and while their pizza is often tasty, I view it as the fast food giant of the 'local' pizza industry. I feel kinda bad for badmouthing them, considering I've been guilty of eating their pizza quite a few times, but it's more out of convenience than anything. It's great that a small local company has become a large chain, but I'll stick to the places that remain small and local.

Capilano Pizza4730 Capilano Road, North Vancouver
Great crust, better service!
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 1:06pm [Dine in]

DDDN likely has the best pizza crust I've ever had. It's not thin, but very light and not doughy at all. There is definitely cheaper pizza out there, but rarely is it as tasty. Great lunch special which is two slices and a plate of fries for around five bucks. Super friendly service; the lady running the place even brought my fries and ketchup to the table, along with a glass of ice water. I've never experienced such caring service in a comparable pizza joint. I'm looking forward to my second visit!

Maggie's Delicatessen & Cafe128 E 14 Street, North Vancouver
Great cafe run by great people.
Submitted Wednesday, July 20, 2011 - 10:14am [Dine in]

I stopped in at Maggie's for breakfast after hearing a lot of good things about it, and was very satisfied. One of the best omelets I have had in a long time. I'm going back very soon to try their soup and sandwiches. The customer has a choice of breads, veggies, cheeses and sauces for the sandwiches, with a lot of variety. Lots of variety on the menu as a whole.

The owner, who was also the server, was very attentive and genuine. I felt like I was a guest at his home.

Great value, especially considering all of the options that were available.

The ambience is nothing special, but it's clean and comfortable.

Cafe de l'Orangerie1320 West 73rd Avenue, Vancouver
A hidden gem
Submitted Monday, April 11, 2011 - 9:42pm [Dine in]

I lived near Cafe de l'Orangerie for over a year but just now discovered it. Shame on me! It's a fantastic little cafe with a large food and drink menu. The prawn sandwich and their soups are amazing. I really dig the atmosphere; great music, nice decor and one of the cleanest bathrooms I've seen. Super friendly and attentive service, and a great value to boot. Highly recommended.

Mezbaan3499 Kingsway, Vancouver
Outstanding!
Submitted Monday, April 11, 2011 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

I went to Mezbaan based on positive reviews, and was not disappointed! Definitely some of the best Indian food I've tried. The dinner buffet is only from Sunday to Wednesday. I have yet to try the buffet but will be doing so very soon!

Appetizer + beer for under $7 is a great deal. The veggie pakoras were amazing!

Some of the best, friendliest service I've gotten in a long time.

The ambience is solid; the music was great and suited the place well.

A very enjoyable experience on all accounts; I look forward to returning soon!

Hudson's Landing1041 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver
Great place for sports and pub food!
Submitted Monday, January 24, 2011 - 1:08pm [Dine in]

I really like the atmosphere at the Hudson's Landing. Comfortable chairs, fireplace, and a wide variety of seating options. Dark and cozy. Huge screen for watching sports. It's one of the better places to watch the game or fight. Good beer selection, and reasonably priced. Good daily specials on drinks and food. Half price pizza on Sundays! The service is attentive and friendly. It may sound like I'm on the payroll, but I really can't say anything negative about it.

Kino Cafe Flamenco and Tapas Bar3456 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Good entertainment...
Submitted Sunday, January 23, 2011 - 11:45am [Dine in]

I've been to the Kino a few times, and each time has been about the same. The music and dancing is fantastic (for the most part; I came mid-week once and it was pretty bad), but it can be kind of awkward to face the stage if you're not sitting in the right spot.

Friends have suggested to eat before coming to the Kino, and it's understandable; the food isn't horrible but it isn't anything special either. The nachos were basically just overcooked chips and cheese with salsa and sour cream on the side.

The servers don't come around often; you have to call them over if you want service. It gets quite busy in there so it's not that the servers don't care, they're just all over the place. I tried to be patient when I arrived to see if they'd come to me, but i waited over a half hour and ended up going to the bar. My seat was facing the wall so it was hard to flag down a server.

Considering the entertainment, the value is good, but the drinks aren't exactly cheap. All things considered, the Kino is a great place for entertainment, but if you're not into flamenco music/dancing, go somewhere else.

Whip Gallery, The209 E 6th Ave, Vancouver
Good food, incredible drink selection!
Submitted Tuesday, January 18, 2011 - 11:48am [Dine in]

The whip is a great place to go for drinks; they have an amazing selection of beer, scotch, tequila and much more. There is always great original art on the walls, different every time I've been. The music is always near perfect, and on weekend evenings they have a dj. Their brunch is good, and the nachos are great. If you're looking for a place to bask in ambiance, check out The Whip.

Great brunch!
Submitted Tuesday, January 18, 2011 - 11:41am [Dine in]

I was impressed by the weekend brunch. I had an omelet which was decent, and they obviously use good eggs. It came with fruit, soup, salad and toast. Great combination! Friendly, attentive service. I hope to go back for brunch next weekend! One of the best in Marpole for sure.

If you like beer and The Oilers, this place is for you!
Submitted Tuesday, January 18, 2011 - 11:34am [Dine in]

Went to Black Frog on a Saturday night when an Oilers game was on, so the crowds were expected; we waited about half an hour for a table. The beer selection is great and reasonably priced, and I was impressed by the matching beer/mug combination. Unfortunately I wasn't overly impressed by the food. It wasn't bad, but a bit disappointing. The eggplant sandwich in particular wasn't very good. Service wasn't overly friendly, but it was attentive and quick, especially considering the crowds. I wouldn't come back to eat, but it's definitely a good place for beer and hockey.

Panos Greek Taverna654 SE Marine Drive, Vancouver
Not bad. Not fantastic.
Submitted Tuesday, December 7, 2010 - 11:51pm [Dine in]

I use the term 'mediocre' to mean just okay. Nothing necessarily wrong with it, but nothing to draw me back or rave about. It was nice to try a Greek beer that I haven't heard of before, and it was very good. The decor of the place is nice; I could have felt like I was relaxing on the beautiful shores of Greece but the Cyndi Lauper had me grounded in Marpole. The service was decent but not fantastic. My companion's spanakopita was quite good, but I was disappointed with my vegetarian moussaka. It reminded me of a frozen entree out of a box. It wasn't awful, but it didn't compare to moussaka I've had elsewhere in Vancouver.

Templeton, The1087 Granville Street, Vancouver
Good vegetarian brunch
Submitted Tuesday, December 7, 2010 - 11:16pm [Dine in]

I'd been to The Templeton years ago, and decided to stop in for brunch based on the positive hype I've heard. I had time to kill and noticed there was a wait so I came back later to avoid the late morning rush. I was seated quickly, but sat there for a few minutes wondering why I wasn't given a menu. After a few passes the waitress mentioned that the menus were tucked in behind the jukeboxes.

The food was good; it's nice to have veggie bacon offered as an alternative to bacon. The rosemary potatoes were great, as were the eggs. The toast took a while to arrive but was enjoyable as well.

The ambiance is great; the jukeboxes and postcards in the tabletop are great, although it was marred by the smell of stale spilled beer. I'd definitely eat at The Templeton again, but as with most places I wouldn't wait in line to get in.

Naam, The2724 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Great all around!
Submitted Tuesday, September 21, 2010 - 1:18pm [Dine in]

I can't say enough good things about the Naam. Fantastic vegetarian food with fantastic service, and it's open 24 hours! Some unique flavours; at first the miso gravy didn't appeal to me but by the second taste I was hooked. My only complaint is the chairs and table we sat at by the window. The seats were very uncomfortable to sit in and the table was kind of awkward. Don't get me wrong, it was a small price to pay for such good food and service.

Roundel Cafe2465 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Packed like sardines!
Submitted Tuesday, September 21, 2010 - 1:13pm [Dine in]

I have mixed feelings about the Roundel. The food is great, as is the service. The issues I have with it have to do with how busy it gets. It's a small room, and like anywhere when a place is packed the service inevitably suffers. When they come by they are extremely helpful, but sometimes it's a long wait between visits. My friend asked for a side of bananas (which were apparently ordered and never received) and after a while was told that the request was placed to the kitchen staff, but sorry, no bananas. They were too busy..? I find it uncomfortable when it's busy and I find it lacking ambiance, despite having some great art on the walls.

Mongolie Grill8400 Alexandra Road, Richmond
I'm not sure what the negative reviews are about...
Submitted Tuesday, September 21, 2010 - 12:54pm [Dine in]

I was invited to eat at the Mongolie Grill and almost avoided it because of negative reviews. I was very pleasantly surprised with the food, service and value! You fill your own bowl with meat/veggies/seafood... whatever you want, and it's charged by weight so to complain about paying for weighty vegetables is nonsense. I loaded up on bison, scallops, prawns, and my whole plate of goodness was around $8!! Our server was very attentive and even brought us free tea! He received (and deserved) a huge tip.

New India Buffet & Restaurant805 W Broadway, #105, Vancouver
Once was enough!
Submitted Tuesday, September 21, 2010 - 12:41pm [Dine in]

I had heard good things about New India, and with a coupon in hand I couldn't resist. The food was overly spicy and not overly flavourful. I've definitely had better Indian buffet, and was quite disappointed. I say the service was poor mainly because we stood around awkwardly upon entering the place... Do we seat ourselves? We waited a while for someone to assist. Our server was very friendly but easily confused. Then comes the 'bill', which I never actually saw; it was far more expensive than I was expecting, especially considering the coupon. After looking at other reviews on this site, it made sense that an automatic gratuity of 15-20% was added, but I cannot confirm that this did happen. Regardless, it was far more expensive than I felt reasonable.

Seasons in the ParkWest 33rd & Cambie, Vancouver
Great views, great service
Submitted Tuesday, September 21, 2010 - 12:27pm [Dine in]

Had a wonderful dinner at Seasons; the flora surrounding the restaurant and the views are spectacular. Friendly, attentive service. I found some of the food to be fantastic, and other things were just average. The crab cake and stuffed mushroom appetizers are very good. I ordered the chicken pizza thinking it might be some of the best pie I've eaten, but it was a letdown. Next time I won't cheap out and I'll try something different! It is fairly expensive, but it's a solid value.
