Wild Garlic Bistro792 Denman St., Vancouver
Great Food, Service & Prices
Submitted Sunday, October 23, 2011 - 11:23pm [Dine in]

Came here for brunch with 3 friends on Saturday.

We shared the roasted garlic & camembert cheese fondue with crostini. It was delicious.

I had:
- salmon, caper & camembert cheese omelet which came with fried potatoes, toast, fruit
My friends had (all came with fried potatoes, toast and fruit) :
- corned beef hash with poached eggs,
- bacon & avocado, topped with poached eggs & cheddar cheese,
- sauteed garlic spinach & tomato, topped with poached eggs & home made hollandaise

The portions were huge and the service was top notch.... friendly, attentive & our coffees were always refilled.
I would definitely return

Sala Thai888 Burrard, #102, Vancouver
good good food....poor poor service
Submitted Wednesday, October 12, 2011 - 9:04pm [Dine in]

Every time our table wanted any service once we sat down (get water, order, refill our water, pack our food, get our bill) we had to flag a server down. Once the server arrived (we had many) they all seemed very friendly. Of course we were never asked how the food was. Our pad thai, red curry chicken, beef broccoli, mixed vegetables were all very good. Prices were standard - $10 - 13 per dish. I noticed all the other tables received the same treatment. I would definitely go back if the service improved because it is a great location and decor. For now, there are many other Thai food places to choose from that also have good food and service.

Terrible Service
Submitted Friday, August 19, 2011 - 11:57am [Dine in]

I had lunch with 3 other people after golfing. Service was slow and condescending. I ordered first and asked if the quesadilla came with fries/soup/salad and the waiter told me that "I should read the menu". He proceeded to tell my friends that as well when they ordered their food too. The female server seemed more attentive and refilled our waters but he rarely came by (only twice after that) - maybe because we sat at the farther end of the patio and he didn't want to walk that far. The food was good and portions were large. My mojito was disappointing and expensive ($7.99!) - hardly any mint leaves or alcohol. My other friend said he had ordered a caesar in the past and it was disappointing as well. I guess stay away from the cocktails. After we got the bill (which we had to flag him down to ask for) we got tired of waiting for the waiter to collect our credit cards. We went inside to pay. My friend was figuring out the the credit card machine and asked the waiter about it and again condescending and told her the button for the tip was there (and it wasn't). The waiter didn't deserve a tip anyways. Go there for good food and ambiance but be prepared not to tip if you get the male European waiter.

Sushi Bang500 Broadway West, #100, Vancouver
Disappointed
Submitted Thursday, July 28, 2011 - 6:33pm [Dine in]

I came here because it was close to my home. I ordered the Combo F to go for $12 plus tax. I was very disappointed at the size of each nigiri sushi. I've never seen a nigiri sushi with such a small piece of fish on the rice (and I'm not a fan of huge portions like Samurai). Beware of the combos that states "14 pieces" because in the combo F the negitoro roll counts as 6 pieces. The quality wasn't that great either. Next time I won't be lazy and make an effort to go further to Kadoya or Temaki.

Submitted Monday, July 18, 2011 - 12:15am [Dine in]

Dined here on a Sunday night with 4 other friends. Reservations are recommended. Service was friendly and attentive. The ambiance is cozy. I really enjoyed my french onion soup, mussels and fries, creme brulee & americano. My friends had fausse nicoise, escargot, mussels & fries, lamb sirloin, snapper, beef tenderloin, side mash potatoes, side green beans. My friends were also very impressed. Portions were decent and prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Its just "OK"
Submitted Sunday, October 24, 2010 - 11:23pm [Dine in]

I came here with my boyfriend and 2 other couples on a Friday night. We all purchased gift cards at Costco - $100 gift card for the price of $80. It was definitely not enough for the 2 of us. For just my boyfriend and I, the total cost with tax & tip was $215 & he wasn't even full (& he's not a big eater) - him and another friend headed to MacDonald's after wards. We started with 2 beers & 1 mojito in the lounge ($25). For dinner he had 6 oysters and I had a green salad and we both had the halibut dish and shared a dessert & 1 coffee & 1 bottle of wine ($190). Bread did not accompany the entree. The entree was small (the portion was not that big for even a girl, never mind for the guys). Dessert was also very small. The halibut was just "ok" maybe a little overcooked and the sauce was quite bland (& I'm not keen on adding salt when I cook). The tables were very close together and it was super loud inside the restaurant (we sat upstairs), I couldn't hear the waiter tell us about our specials. It is a beautiful restaurant. The service was very good & attentive - our waters were always filled and the couple times I went to the restroom all the servers would make way for me when I passed them. This would not be my first, second or third choice of seafood restaurants to go to again but I would definitely go back to Season's or The Fishouse.

Great Peach Pie
Submitted Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 11:26pm [Dine in]

I came here yesterday, last minute decision to get a slice of pie after going to the beach. The sandwich board said "Peach Pies are here". I ordered a slice to go. The employee was fast, efficient & friendly. The ambiance on this side is like a coffee shop, place to eat pie, a muffin etc. On the other side is where you would get your lunch, dinner. I found the place rustic but cozy & charming. There's not many place in Vancouver like that anymore. It felt that I was going home to have some pie my mother made (although my mother has never baked a pie in her life). The pie was fantastic....fresh peaches (organic imagine) and the crust was so yummy!
I'm looking forward to going back to try their lunch/dinner menu. I forgot to mention their special was to take one piece of pie to go for 15% off. I still had to pay $7.30 for one slice (a little pricey....I know, I know, its organic!)

Great Place For Lunch
Submitted Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 11:16pm [Dine in]

Came here today with my partner and we had the turkey cranberry sandwich, vegetarian sandwich (both were in the panini press & both came with chips) We also shared the quinoa squash salad. The meal was very good and portions were large. We couldn't finish the salad and took it home. The sandwiches were $8 each and the salad (lg) was $4.50. The bonus was we had an Entertainment Book coupon. The bill was $22 but was only $14 after the coupon. The value is decent for the quality of their ingredients - even if we didn't have a coupon. Service was friendly and they seem to chat up their regular customers. We even got our waters refilled while sitting outside on the patio. (I didn't mention that you initially order at the counter and you get a # & they bring you your meal. You get some service but not full). Sitting on the patio was nice, we were in the shade. The ambiance inside was clean and everything looked well organized and uncluttered. The area up front where you order is very spacious which is appreciated because most places you feel like you're in everyone's way while everyone is still trying to figure out what they want. The bathrooms were clean as well. I'm excited to go back to try their coffee and butter chicken.

Quality Sushi
Submitted Friday, June 4, 2010 - 5:09pm [Dine in]

Came here for lunch. The bento box was a good value. Not too overwhelmingly big and not too small. The sashimi that came with it was very fresh (tuna & wild salmon). My partner ordered the assorted sushi and the pieces were a perfect size. The rolls were nicely made (not sloppy). Overall, the quality of the food is excellent. There are cheaper sushi places but you are paying for quality here. Service was welcoming & friendly. The decor looks dated/old but still clean.

Kerkis Greek Taverna3605 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Delicious Greek Food
Submitted Sunday, February 21, 2010 - 11:32am [Dine in]

I have been here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The fried kalamari is always tender and not too greasy. I always order the lamb souvlaki and its always been tasty & good quality. I like that they serve the pita bread and Greek salad first instead of it being on your hot entree. The roast lamb is also very good, not too much fat and always enough for left overs for the next day. Service has never been bad either. Highly recommended restaurant if you feel like Greek food.

Good Food & Service
Submitted Sunday, February 21, 2010 - 11:11am [Dine in]

Came here on a Saturday night around 9pm. Ten minute wait for a table. Service was personable and attentive despite being fairly busy. I had the jambalaya and my friends had a dessert each. The jambalaya was delicious with enough chicken, sausage & seafood on it. My friends said the creme brulee and chocolate brownie was really good. Highly recommended.

Good Food, Overpriced Drinks
Submitted Friday, February 5, 2010 - 3:04am [Dine in]

There were about 14 of us that dined here on a Saturday night. Service was efficient but maybe too "casual/didn't care' attitude. Perhaps he knew he was automatically going to get a 18% gratuity (added onto our bill for bigger parties). My partner and I shared the tomato, basil, olive oil bruschetta, ahi tuna carpaccio, and the spaghetti with kobe meatballs. The food was good. For drinks we had a mojito, a martini, a beer & 2 glasses of wine. Our bill with tax & 18% gratuity came to $120. The food was reasonably priced but the drinks were over priced. The music was too loud for my liking. It was difficult to speak to the person across the table without yelling. I probably wouldn't return to this place unless someone else wanted to go really badly. There are so many other good restaurants in Vancouver for the same or better quality food with much better value.

Came here on a week day with 3 others. Waited about 10 minutes for a table. Service was personable and attentive with a good sense of humor. Our starters included; endive salad, poutine, onion tart, & p√Ęte de campagne which were all very tasty. I had the burger and it was delicious & came with pomme frites which were a bit over salted. Good wine list. Prices were reasonable. Cozy and intimate ambiance. Highly recommended.

Good family restaurant (but for how long?)
Submitted Wednesday, January 13, 2010 - 1:14am [Dine in]

Came here with my mom for lunch before Christmas

Food: both of us had good salmon burgers and yam fries (cost extra) - bill $28 & change including tax

Service: friendly but not genuine (like Earl's & Cactus Club). The servers are starting to look like clones in there. Soon, they'll all have to have long hair, age 19 -24 and fit into a size 0 uniform and no skirts below the knee.

I hope they keep it a family restaurant. Its the "go to restaurant" for all ages in the family

Not bad for AYCE
Submitted Wednesday, January 13, 2010 - 12:50am [Dine in]

Came for dinner on a weekday evening. There was a steady flow of people coming into the restaurant but it was never full. Everyone that worked in there was Chinese.

Food: Great selection of sushi to choose from. The size of the sashimi i was not too huge and overwhelming that it unappetizing. The size of sushi in proportion to the rice (nigri) was pretty good. The hand cones were good and the rolls were also decent sized. I swear we didn't order that many rolls but maybe they wanted us to fill up on it so that we wouldn't order any more. The quality of the sushi was just OK (didn't get sick the next day)

Service: They kept refilling our tea and water. Some of the servers spoke/understood minimal English

Ambiance: Tacky, cafeteria style. There was a sign on the wall for a beer special, and they actually just cut out the label on the cardboard box the beer came in and tacked it on the wall and wrote the price on it.

Price: $44 including tax.

Thai Basil1215 Thurlow St, Vancouver
Authentic Thai food
Submitted Wednesday, January 13, 2010 - 12:37am [Dine in]

I work near this restaurant and have not been disappointed yet. I usually do take away.
I usually order the green curry chicken and its delicious and cheap! ($7 including tax)
Pad thai is also delicious, not too saucy ($8 including tax)
When I've been in for lunch specials, they're quick and have large portions for very reasonable prices ($8)
Staff is friendly. I also believe that the chef is actually Thai and not Chinese! I hear them speaking Thai to one another in the back.
Highly recommended, probably one of the best Thai restaurants out of Vancouver

Good food, lacking service
Submitted Wednesday, January 13, 2010 - 12:29am [Dine in]

Came here with my family for dinner.

Food: We started with calamari appetizer, which was was very tender & flavorful. I've had better tzatziki though - maybe not enough garlic in it. Both my parents had the leg of lamb which was a generous portion(no bone) and little fat (similar to roast lamb you get at other Greek restaurants). Came with rice, potatoes, greek salad & garlic bread. Their meal was over $17 each. I had the 8oz size lamb souvlaki with all the same sides. I enjoyed the the tender pieces of lamb, cooked to perfection. The rice and greek salad was great as well. I found the potatoes a bit too salty. Mine was over $16. Bill was a little over $62 including tax.

Service: When she took our order she seemed friendly. Another server refilled our water. No body asked how our food was during the meal. There was maybe 5 small tables in the restaurant including ours and about 4 servers hanging out and watching TV.

Ambiance: restaurant looks clean, maybe recently renovated, dim lighting. Once you go to the washroom, it seemed a bit old/dirty. They need to renovate women's washroom at least.

Overall: I found the food was good, price is on the high side (Kerkis on W.4th is the same quality food and better value & service and you can use an entertainment book coupon). Service was lacking, they were friendly but was not attentive throughout our dining experience. I don't think they even acknowledged us when we left (there were 3-4 of them standing around watching us leave)
