Good food.....
Submitted Sunday, July 12, 2009 - 10:46am [Dine in]

I have been to various Browns locations and I have never been disappointed. Paid the new Point Grey location with my husband last night and again, we were not disappointed. We had chicken wings, small Cowboy Salad, Calamari, and Ahi Tuna Fishbowl. All were good. Everytime I visit I always order the Cowboy or Cowgirl salads - they are to die for! This is the first time I tried the calamari and I was quite impressed. They are not the usual fried calamari and tzaziki sauce. I would like to think it is the more mature version of fried calamari. Overall, I would describe Browns as an upscale pub. Their menu items are on the higher end (looking at $25-$30 per person). The staff are always friendly and accomodating.However, one thing that prevents me from going here more often (aside from the price) is that when they show Canucks games, they are not allowed to turn the volume up. That's really quite disappointing. My co-workers and I stopped watching hockey games at Browns for that reason. Also, a wing special during games would be nice too.

Hapa Izakaya1479 Robson St, Vancouver
Hapa with my second visit
Submitted Saturday, July 11, 2009 - 2:43pm [Dine in]

My first visit to Hapa (Kitsilano) was not a good experience at all, however I was forced back for a second visit for a friend's birthday at the Robson location and it was waaaay better. The birthday girl, having spent 3 years in Japan teaching English, had recommended that we all order the Omakase as it would be a better value for our large group. I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality and the quantity of the food. The Omakase came with Edamame and one choice of salad, plus 9 entrees all for $30. My favorites were the sable fish, negitoro, and ebi may. Since I do not eat red meat, I was not able to eat all of the entrees (2 were red meat) but I was still quite full at the end. The Hello Kitty drink is a must try too.

I probably will never go back to the Kits location, but will definitely visit the Robson location again.

I have been here twise and both visits have been disappointing. I decided to give this place anohter chance after the first visit, but unfortunately the second visit has re-affirmed my initial instinct of never giving this place another try.

During my last visit, I had the cod and chips, and my husband had the halibut and chips. The fish seemed dry and the fries were greasy and soggy. I guess grease is not a surprise considering it is fried, but soggy fries are gross. We also tried the fish tacos. While the fish tacos were good, it is not enough to make me want to go back to this place.

The service was extremely poor. This was evident when my husband and I were seated on the side while eating andthere was a line of about 10 people. The couple at the very end of the line were told by one of the worker that they were cutting off the line just right infront of them. It was not like as if the couple had just arrived at the end of the line, nor was there a sign indicating that they were no longer letting people line up. The couple asked why that was, the worker told them that they do it everynight. I looked at my watch and it was only 6:15, and this place is suppose to be open until 6:30. The couple who was turned away was definitely irate, and rightfully so. Who does that to paying customers????? If you are going to cut the line off 15 minutes prior to your advertised closing time, then maybe you should advertise your closing time accordingly. That is just poor business practice.

If you are on Granville Island, Tony's Fish and Oyster Cafe is less than a 5 minute walk fron Go Fish. They have better food and definitely better service. Also, Pajo's (various locations) is definitely worth a visit as well (Fish and chips served on a newspaper cone).

I had heard from my co-workers that this place served great pizza, therefore I had suggested that my girlfriends and I go there for dinner one Friday night. We made reservations days in advance, and my girlfriend even confirmed the reservation the same day. However, when we got there, we had to wait an hour for our table! Isn't the essence of a reservation so that you will not have to wait for a table??? They sat us at a bar while we waited for our table. We told the bartender our pridicament, so he gave us a round on the house. That was very nice of him. When we finally got a table, we ordered a bunch of appies and pizza. The pizza was nothing speacial. When it was time to pay, they made us wait again because they had made an error on our bill. I seriously do not think people who work there know what they're doing. Would I go back? mmmmmm.......maybe not.

Overpriced Nachos!
Submitted Saturday, October 4, 2008 - 6:36pm [Dine in]

Do yourself a favor and do not order the nachos!!! It cost $20 for a large order of nachos and all it was was nacho chips with melted cheese on it. No other toppings! On top of that, the nachos were really dry. We also had wings which ok. We were there on a Friday night, and I thought that the service was pretty good considering how busy it was. It was very loud as they had a band playing. Overall, I do not think I will go back to this place voluntarily.

Went for the deluxe all you can eat sushi dinner with my husband and a friend, and I must say that the moment we came in, I knew we were in for a huge disapointment. There was a room right by the entry way and they had dirty dishes and buckets just sitting there. Not exactly what you want to see when you are about to eat. I wanted to leave, but my husband was really hungry and wanted sushi, so I agreed to stay. The place was dirty, and the floors were sticky. We waited for a table for a good 30 minutes (we did not have reservations), and when a table finally opened up, the waiter asked us if we minded sharing a large table with another party. I told him no. Could not believe that he wanted us to share a table with someone else! Anyways, we were finally seated. My friend found food bits in his tea cup - found that incredibly gross! He asked for a new one. The service was pretty quick, however the food was not that great. The sushi was mediocre at best. Food that were suppose to be warm (ie, mushroom and oyster motoyaki, soup) were at room temperature. My husband did mention that they do serve the best beef tataki he's ever had. We also had fresh oysters, which were pretty good (can't really go wrong with fresh oysters now, can you?). I only ate two pieces as I did not trust the place. It's been almost 24 hrs now and I'm ok. So, in a nut shell, would I go back to this place? Hell no!
