Lombardo's Ristorante and Pizzeria970 Smithe St., Vancouver
No More Chances....
Submitted Wednesday, September 19, 2007 - 12:05pm [Dine in]

Ok, $24 bucks for the best pizza in town, I can handle that....but based on my experience and what I see written on here, the rest of the menu is suffering. Although, the pasta is not bad.

First time I came, we had a new server, and it she brought completely misunderstood the order, and brought out multiple pizzas instead of a single pizza with two toppings...I mean, come on, you're working in a pizza place...The manager used it as a 30 minute training opportunity to show her how to fix a bill, and he didn't respond when I asked them to put a RUSH on it....

I came back with an entertainment coupon (I know, how lame)...it was really the only reason I came back haha....and the server said "We don't accept that, it's for the Lumbardo's on commercial drive see"....Same owner, same restaurant...come on...I'm getting take out from there from now on, because I can't stay away from the pizza...

Tsunami Sushi1025 Robson Street, #238, Vancouver
10 more minute....
Submitted Monday, February 5, 2007 - 2:34pm [Dine in]

This operation is a huge joke. The waitresses at the front kept telling people "10 minute, more or less"....but nobody was walking out of the restaurant. I waited about 15 minutes to sit at the sushi bar, which was really unimpressive. The boats kept going by with the same stuff on them, and kind of gave me motion sickness...the sushi was comparable to generic, inexpensive fast food sushi type venues. The green tea girl did not know how to fill my glass more than half full, and she only came by once. I was also offered a bill multiple times as they tried to rush me out, but when I was finally ready, the server was nowhere to be found.

I really needed something fried to drown my misery, and I was disappointed to discover that the gyoza was COLD and rock hard on the outside....I suppose the sashimi was fresh, but definately overpriced....for what I paid, I could have eaten at a real restaurant. Although Nikko across the street is a bit sketchy (sometimes frozen sashimi), I would recommend it over Tsunami....unfortunately today it was closed for renovations which is why I went to Tsunami.

Cassis420 W Pender, Vancouver
Reasonable French Bistro
Submitted Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 3:59pm [Dine in]

I am in love with this restaurant, despite the fact that it looks like a warehouse inside (it's definately not Le Crocodile...but you get what you pay for). Thank goodness there is a simple, affordable french bistro in Vancouver! Absolutely everything on the menu is marvellous, and I've heard the patio in the back is actually a nice place to sit....but I can't say the same about the inside of the restaurant. Regardless, this place is not about decor, it's about food. A great place for a cheap/romantic date!

Earls905 Hornby Street, Vancouver
More generic than memorable
Submitted Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 3:46pm [Dine in]

Like any other Earl's only:

The atmosphere at this Earl's is a little over the top, considering the blaring house music, scantily clad all female staff, and 80% lounge area make this place more of a club than a restaurant. The dining area is tucked away underneath the staircase, and I would definitely not recommend letting one of the manipulative servers seat you there since it's a little cramped and off in the corner.

I live above the restaurant, and it's a great place to hang out, but not to dine.

If you go for Monday Night Football you might be lucky enough to catch "the girls" strutting around in sleeveless referee jerseys and heels. And I must say it's a great place to watch a game, considering there are huge plasma screens all over the walls and beautiful women, who manage to put half your stuff on someone else's bill by accident (has happened to me more than once), since the Earl's hiring process is definitely not competency based.

As always, the Earl's menu is trying to do too many things on a mediocre level, rather than making a few great items. The specials are always something to go home and cry about, regardless of how much the servers “romance” them.

Great food, without the breasts...
Submitted Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 3:18pm [Dine in]

This place is definitely an oasis in Vancouver's casual fine dining scene. You can get great fresh food at a reasonable price without a large pair of breasts in a mini-skirt taking your order as you may have encountered at Cactus or Earl's. (not that there's anything wrong with that).

The decor is simple and to the point, reflecting the brevity of the restaurant's one page menu. The starters are definitely a notch above Cactus, considering they aren't thrown in a deep fryer--I would recommend the squid. The salads are appealing too, which means a lot coming from me since I'm not a salad person; I keep going back for the Ahi Tuna Salad, which is more than pile of leaves with tuna thrown on it. And thank goodness the tuna is actually RARE like they promise.

A few of the menu items could use some work, and you should avoid ordering a burger or rice bowl, since Brown’s is more about west coast fusion. Spacious booths and a great patio make it a place for most occasions. I would recommend that anyone give it a try!
