Service stinks
Submitted Friday, May 2, 2008 - 7:01pm [Dine in]

So the store on Cambie was suffering because of the construction and they were handing out 20% off coupons for their stuff. We ordered a cake and when we got there and realized we forgot our coupon, they said we couldn't get the discount. If we know about the discount, doesn't it mean we have the coupon? It's not like there's an expiry on it, nor have they stopped handing out coupons. So we decided to just go to other cake stores who make cakes just as good and at cheaper prices too.

Basically, the place is overrated and isn't anything special.

food that melts in your mouth
Submitted Friday, May 2, 2008 - 6:53pm [Dine in]

I went there for a quick dinner before heading over to Theatresports and was surprised at how friendly and quick the staff were after I told them my predicament.

Even though the food came quickly, it was really really good. The fish literally comes right off of eachother and melts in your mouth. Tip for future reference, if you're going on a weekend, reservations are a must. Or go really really early. Otherwise, on weekdays, it's a good crowd.

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House777 Thurlow Street, Vancouver
it's not bad, just not WONDERFUL either
Submitted Friday, May 2, 2008 - 6:50pm [Dine in]

I've been about 4 times. The first time, for Dine Out and had the worst experience. Then afterwards, for regular dining it was great. Needless to say, they are very selective about their guests.

For Dine-Out I had the tenderloin that was anything but tender. I've had tenderloin from Chartwell (at Four Seasons, now known as Yew) and the bread was cold.

Other times, the seafood was amazing! Service was great and friendly too.

Basically, don't go during Dine-Out and you'll enjoy the place.

creativity goes a long way
Submitted Friday, May 2, 2008 - 6:31pm [Dine in]

Having been to so many Chinese-owned sushi places around town, it's a breath of fresh air to go to a Japanese restaurant that is owned by Japanese people.

The food was really delicate. I really liked the first page, with all the different and special rolls. They're really creative. I only had the chance to go one time and only tasted one roll, but it was really really good. I would definately go again just to try all their different special rolls.

Really awkward to get to, but totally worth the trip in the end. It's a beautiful place (as you may be able to see from the website) and the food is amazing. Great Chinese food, awesome list of teas, try everything!

It may seem strange when you step in and there's only one or two other tables in the restaurant, but then, depending when you go, it generally fills up. I've gone on a Saturday for lunch, and a weeknight for dinner, and both times it was empty at first, but filled up later. So go a little later for the atmosphere, I guess.

yummy pizza
Submitted Friday, May 2, 2008 - 5:58pm [Dine in]

I had their buffalo flatbread and it was amazing. My friend and I ordered a 13" with split toppings (the other half was the daily special). Anyway, the two of us devoured the pizza - even though we normally don't eat more than two slices at Pizza Hut or whatnot; but the pizza was so good, especially after we added the fresh parmesan and pepper. Always go for the fresh stuff, it makes the pizza so much tastier.

Service was okay. We had to ask for our waters to be refilled - which technically should never happen. Our server seems to be missing all the time. But really good flatbread.

Chef not around?
Submitted Friday, May 2, 2008 - 5:52pm [Dine in]

I don't know if it's because the chef was not around that day, but the food was disappointing the last time I went. Maybe because of the new restaurant, the chef cannot commit as much time, but I seriously remembered the pulled pork sandwich tasting much better than it did.

So a tip, see if the chef is around before heading there.

service worthy of a five star hotel
Submitted Friday, May 2, 2008 - 5:49pm [Dine in]

I was there after a wedding on a Sunday afternoon and I was blown off the roof by how amazing the service was. There were 12 of us in total and usually we would expect to be split up or have really poor service, but they were so nice to us. I would go just because of the service.

Food was as usual - like any other white spot. Too much sauce, but so darn tasty.

Chambar568 Beatty Street, Vancouver
I've seen better
Submitted Friday, May 2, 2008 - 5:45pm [Dine in]

I first visited Chambar when I was looking for dessert and was refered to the place. Turns out, dessert isn't really their specialty - neither me nor my date enjoyed it. Service was non-existential, so I can't really rate it.

Second time I visited, was because my other friends thought their menu was appealing. I decided to give it another go, since people seem to really like the place. I had the Carpaccio and it seemed a bit saltier than other places (like at Chartwell, now known as Yew). Granted, Carpaccio is supposed to be salty, it was just a little too much. For my main course I had the tenderloin, and it wasn't very tender, and also a bit too salty.

Our server was very friendly, but the hostess needed a bit of work. You would think the first face you see would be a friendly one, but no.
