My friend and I went to Plan B for the Taste of Yaletown. What a waste of time & money. I ordered the soup duo, which was a consomme and a butternut squash soup. The consomme was hot, but quite bland in flavour. I've had better out of a Ramen soup package. The pureed soup had a nice flavour but was borderline cold. I had to eat it quickly because it was drizzled with oil - not a pleasant taste in cold soup. My friend had the beet salad, which was basically beets & goat cheese. Hard to screw up.
We waited about 25 minutes for our entrees to arrive - good thing we had a bottle of wine. When I asked what was taking so long, the server said they were "plating it now" and walked away. No apology for the wait, no smile, nothing.
For the entree, we both had the beef shortribs - they were so dry that I had to drink a lot of water/wine to prevent from choking. When the waitress -finally- came by to ask how our meals were, I told her it was dry and I wasn't enjoying it - SHE OFFERED ME MORE WATER. I couldn't believe it. She said she'd tell the chef about the food, but she disappeared and didn't come back until we were finished. I got tired of waiting as I was really hungry, so I just choked it down.
The only saving grace was the dessert, a hazelnut creme brulee that was quite tasty.
The waitress seemed very unfriendly, bored & barely paid attention to us - horrible service. Even the other server who brought our meals didn't bother saying anything or smiling. Makes me wonder if they even like working there. by their attitudes, you'd think someone died in the kitchen. I will definitely not go back.
