terrible food
Submitted Thursday, April 29, 2010 - 5:12pm [Dine in]

I ordered "homestyle "lasagna which was the furthest thing from homemade! The noodles were gummy the sauce was not very good. I could barely eat it. When I mentioned how bad it was I was first told I still needed to pay for it,then was told I could actually get a replacement dinner.I was then brought something just as bad tasting. I tried their alfredo sauce,it was not very good either, the pasta was again gummy tastying and the sauce had no flavour.
I would hesitate to go to this restaurant again.

lousy steak
Submitted Friday, March 13, 2009 - 10:45pm [Dine in]

this restaurant has a nice look to it, and can sometimes be o.k.,It is the luck of the draw coming here. tonight the service was so slow.
We had calamari to start and that was not bad,small portion but fairly tasty then we waited forever for our dinners to come. The waitress even came over finally and said "your dinners should be ready soon" which made us figure they screwed up our order. we still had to wait quite a while after that. So finally my sirloin steak shows up, well it tasted horrible. No flavour at all,almost like it was boiled it was so blah. Of course no one even bothered to ask if everything was alright. I was so hungry at this point I just ate the dinner.The mashed potaoes tasted o.k. they were served with a bit of gravy, the veggies were on the cold side and over cooked. My husband orderd the seafood crepe,I tasted it and did not like that either. the sauce on top was yucky and it was stuffed with some tiny shrimp pieces.
too be fair,I have eaten here before and it has been alright, never great but it is a convenient place for us to go to, sometimes when your hungry that is a good enough reason to go. So if you need to travel any distance to come to this restaurant I'd recommend going someplace else.

not the best food
Submitted Wednesday, January 28, 2009 - 10:15pm [Dine in]

Well it has been a year since the last dine out vancouver dinner at this restaurant. The price went up to $28 this year,it was $15 last year. the food was much worse this year and more expensive!
I started off with the seafood chowder. it tasted like can clam chowder with a bit more added, it came luke warm with a bun and 2 cracker. Then I had the sirloin steak. the steak was fine,nothing special just regular steak,with 3 pieces of aspargus and the most disgusting tasting risotto underneith. This stuff was so bad I could not even eat 2 bites of it. It reminded me of a big clump of gooey stuff with something that resembled kraft macaroni driedcheese sprinkled all over it. It was inedible! Then i had a chocolate caramel desert.Well the desert too tasted like a yucky lump of goo. I could not eat that either!
My husband had the cheesecake, it was not special just regular frozen cheese cake with some blueberry sauce on top, this too did not get finished as it was just so, so. the service was acceptable but not overly good as i did not get asked how my dinner was.
We did enjoy a half litre of wine with dinner. total bill came to just under $80,I wish we had gone somewhere else and ordered ff a regular menu. i do not recommend dining here for the dine out vancouver!

yummy lunch
Submitted Wednesday, January 28, 2009 - 6:45pm [Dine in]

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times now for lunch.They have a very nice soup and sandwhich combo which is excellent. the soups are all home made. I prefer the soup of the day over the clam chowder. the sandwhich is done on a flat bread with a chicken, bacon and a chipolte dressing. Very tasty combo.
The soup changes all the time. the last one I had was probably the best soup I have ever eaten. It was a chicken and vegtable soup with asiago cheese. Very cheap at only $8 for the entire lunch and so tasty!

great restaurant
Submitted Thursday, December 11, 2008 - 11:45pm [Dine in]

Excellent service for a tiny restaurant in the heart of Edgemont village. When I asked about which wine I should order our waiter brought me out 2 small samples to taste to help us decide.We were givien a tiny complimentary appetizer and some yummy homemade foccacio bread with a balslamic dip. We order a ceasar salad with a home made dressing. the salad was quite good, we also had a clam appetizer in a sundried tomato,pesto suce.it was very good. for the main courses my husband had the Newyork steak.It was quite tastywith a unique taste on top[I am guessing sme kind of cheese like blue cheese plus a peppercorn sauce. I had a crab and shrimp pasta dish. it was very good. We had a lady constantly bring us fresh water, our waiter checked on us many times.The atmosphere was very nice.The place is dimmly lit so if you have trouble reading a menu like we did, bring some reading glasses with you,or a tiny flashlight! apparently on friday nights they have live entertainment,so i am looking forward to going again to check that out. I definetly thougth this place had class and great service. I recommend trying it! Nice place for a special meal. I would not bring your children though, too small of a place and more adult oriented.

very loud restaurant
Submitted Sunday, November 9, 2008 - 11:23pm [Dine in]

Went to this restaurant on a rainy night. sat down and immedietly noticed how cold it was inside,good thing I brought a sweater.
we had 6 people in our group. I had trouble hearing anyone talk as the place was extremely noisy considering there was no music playing. I think perhaps because the ceilings were so low. I ordered a linguine with crab and salmon.and a bottle of red wine.
The linguine was actually quite tasty and so was the wine. I was not pleased about being charged almost a dollar extra to have a sprinkle of parmesan cheese put on it! The prices for most entrees were high and portions were small. I think the taste of most dishes was nice. we all sampled each others dinners.
I think this would be a nice restaurant to go on a hot summer day, when you could actually see the water.

excellent salads!
Submitted Saturday, December 29, 2007 - 5:00pm [Dine in]

We have gone to kelseys many many times over the years. The service is almost always great. A few times it has been slow ,but usually it is about average. I love their sanoma valley salad. We go quite often just to have that. the dressing is delicious,the salad is loaded with seeds, raisins,peppers,feta. it is very tasty and it can be ordered alone, with salmon or with chicken on top. we also enjoy their pastas. they are quite tasty, and can be ordered with either a maranara sauce or a cream sauce. kelseys have always been quite accomodating altering their orderes. if for instance you did not want fries that came with a particular dish they would give you a salad or mashed potatoes or a soup etc instead at no extra charge. I have noticed lately the restaurant is not as busy as it use to be. So it is actually nice not to have to wait 20 minutes to get a seat! we will be back again,and again. It is a good family restaurant.

very small and busy
Submitted Saturday, December 29, 2007 - 4:50pm [Dine in]

My husband and I had breakfast here on a weekend. Parking was packed ,we had to park across the street at the library. We then had to wait in a very crowded line up, squished in at the front door for about 25 minutes to get a table. The menu is interesting and offers a wide selection of breakfast food. I had a meditararian omlette and hashbrowns.my husband had french toast. I found the hashbrowns to be kind of plain, they were home made but lacked any real flavour. The omlette would have been very good if it was warmer. it was barely luke warm by the time I got it and wondered if it was just because of how busy they were. My husbands french toast was pricy for a couple of pieces of bread fried! Sevice was average. It is a very casual restaurant and seemed to have loyal regular customers that apparently enjoy the food. I might possible try this restaurnat again on a weekday,to avoid the long wait and hopefully have a hot breakfast. My omlette was $9 so a little on the pricey side for eggs but not too expensive not to try another dish. Iwould recommend this place if you live close by and have lots of time to kill.If you are in a hurry and want some space around you when you eat do not go to this place. The people beside us might as well have been eating at,our table they were that close. we actually talked with people on both sides of us that is how crammed in we were!

did not enjoy the new special
Submitted Saturday, December 29, 2007 - 4:37pm [Dine in]

We went to this restaurant with a large group of people, we actually got a seat rather quickly. Usually it is a good 1/2 hour wait for dinner on most nights. The host was friendly and the server was friendly too. We got our drinks quickly, everyone was offered a glass of water also,which is always appreciated! I decided to try their new Chicken Gai yang. The presentation was nice but the taste was just too over bearing with Cilantra. I also found it too spicy. The chicken pieces on it were quite tasty though. My friend also ordered this and she did like it. So just know it is a very strong flavoured dish and if you do not absolutely love the taste of cilantro you will not like it. Because we had a large group of people we lingered a while after eating our food and there didn't seem to be any problems with this the waiter asked us if we would like more drinks but basically just let us stay and visit,even after all the bills were paid. I will be back and try something else on the menu, like all restaurants it is a hit and miss whether you will like a new dish or not.

O.K. place if you can get a parking spot
Submitted Friday, December 14, 2007 - 10:48pm [Dine in]

parking is limited! Decor is nice. We had a wait for a table and was offerd a free sample of butter chicken to try. We had a tomatoe ,artichoke dip to start, it was alright, nothing geat, I would not get it again. For dinner I had the ribs, again they were alright but nothing to rave about. My husband had a salad and didn't care for it. Our waitress was young and pleasant, she did a good job. I would go again to this restaurant but order something different to try. Over all it is pretty good

too casual for the price
Submitted Friday, December 14, 2007 - 10:39pm [Dine in]

We waited at the door for quite some time ,then the waitress said to us do you want a seat? She handed us some menues at the door and said there is a table over there in the corner. she did not seat us. The waiter that served us was worst. he did not check on us once, did not ask if we wanted more drinks, slow service. food was just o.k. I ordered seafood fetucini and it was mostly mussels.My husband had the chicken and got one leg and a few veggies he didn't like, at a cost of $19. Portions were small.
