Trattoria Italian Kitchen1850 West 4th Ave, Vancouver
Not a Trattoria
Submitted Monday, July 21, 2008 - 6:35pm [Dine in]

If this was in Italy, nothing here would cut muster. Classics are played around with and everything is overwrought and overdone. Portions are good and prices are moderate but the quality of the food is far from memorable. Everything just tastes strong, too strong and nothing is subtle. Our table kept rotating servers and it happened so much it got confusing. Really a glorified bar, but not a true Trattoria.

Bistrot Bistro1961 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Dull French food
Submitted Tuesday, July 8, 2008 - 7:19pm [Dine in]

The food is dull and the prices are not that reasonable if you count that everything is basically stews and you want extra sides. Maybe my harshness is skewed by the uncomfortable seating in a room that looks cheaply done over. That may not work for me, but clearly others thought otherwise. No linen, servers in Bistrot-bistro t-shirts--everything looks bottom line here, including the quality of the food.

Mediocre fare with a formula
Submitted Tuesday, July 8, 2008 - 7:09pm [Dine in]

The room and seating is so tight it feels claustrophobic. Why they draw down the blinds at the front of the room when the sun is not even in view, I have no idea. Menu is really variations of beef with a couple of bizarrely altered classics such as duck pot au feu. (Pot au Feu is a winter dish, besides, and it was hot out). The hangar steak I had was mostly raw. When I mentioned this to the server, the excuse was that this is the way they do it. I ate very little of it. Besides this, they put a terribly thick brown jus over it. The fries were wilty and very salty. I like French food but not sure what this places serves up.

Mistral French Bistro2585 West Broadway, Vancouver
So-so French bistro
Submitted Tuesday, July 8, 2008 - 7:02pm [Dine in]

If there was a 2.5 for ratings, that would be my number for the food. Everything is so-so. Standardly done food but not in the least bit memorable. I was served home made mayonnaise that was way too stiff. I could not even dip my french fry in it. When I mentioned this to the server, she replied it was supposed to be that way. I then brought it to the attention of the very kind hostess (one of the owners) and her husband chef made a brand new mayo for me. This incident just tells me how somewhat lacksadaisical Mistral is. Not a bad restaurant, just not good enough for me not to think of other french bistros first.

Great fare but expensive
Submitted Tuesday, July 8, 2008 - 3:37pm [Dine in]

My favorite Italian in the city. But very expensive. Wish Italian was not always such a big deal here (ie if it is very good, it is expensive). That's where Toronto beats Vancouver--lots of great Italian at affordable prices.

Prices aside, the food is fabulous here. The room is very nice unless one sits near to the open kitchen in the back. There, it is so noisy it is difficult to converse.
