Urth Coffee72 8th St, New Westminster
Great Neighborhood Spot
Submitted Sunday, August 30, 2009 - 8:30pm [Dine in]

Popped into this coffee house on the way to school (I go to Douglas in NW) and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Coffee was incredible, had a cappuccino and it was like butter, they have wireless internet too which is great considering I can get studying done there. Only down side really is limited parking and it can get a little busy once class it out. I think this might be there first year there, don't remember it from previous semester.

How long do I have to sit here?
Submitted Sunday, June 21, 2009 - 7:46pm [Dine in]

This was my fourth time to WJP which is normally a great place but this certainly put a bitter taste in my mouth.

I was just there on Saturday, grabbed a seat at the bar, restaurant was moderately busy BUT I sat there for over 20 minutes and no one, NO ONE, said a word to me! There were 3 staff including a bartender doing their thing, he looked at me twice and still not even a hello!!!

I was basically right beside their POS system, it's not like I was hidden away in some random corner with a menu over my face. Probably the worst experience I have had in a very long time.

Irish Heather210 Carrall Street, Vancouver
Left side good, right side bad
Submitted Saturday, November 8, 2008 - 3:11pm [Dine in]

It was our first visit to the Heather since the renovations and I have to say it has a hint of identity crisis. The left side is authentic and intimate while the right side leaves you a little "wtf?".

We made reservations in knowing how busy the old location could get...so we arrive and are greeted with "ughhh, your reservation, ughhhh, yeah, what was your name again?"

Sure enough it wasn't taken down, they bluff their way through it and tell us they have a seat for us, no problem, we are taken past the bar (which is gorgeous) then to the right where there is apparently another room...we walk in and there is this single long long long table that is supposed to be this pseudo communal eating place for their patrons. Do you guys honestly think I want to be elbow to elbow with some WWE fan from calgary while I eat? I think this was a romantic idea on the owner's part gone bad.

Anyway, we order, the food was AMAZING, absolutely spot on. Pot pie rocked, bangers and mash were perfect and the service was spectacular, honestly some of the most attentive service I had had in a while but it all went down under BRIGHT flourescent lighting in a LOUD STERILE room with get this, plastic chairs to support us! It just doesn't make sense! Anyway, we stayed until they closed the kitchen and moved onto the shebeen.

Scotch flowed like water at that point, from what I can remember the bartender was knowledgeable and generous. He really put the icing on the cake for the evening.

In the end it was a solid night, the heather has gone through an evolution and the modern vancouver scene seems to have played a major part in some of it. That's really a shame. Still, I would recommend the location, the food and the pricing. It just sucks knowing you are going there having to endure a bad element.

Zefferelli's Spaghetti Joint1136 Robson Street, Vancouver
Simple and Effective
Submitted Monday, November 5, 2007 - 7:13pm [Dine in]

Zeffirelli's is nothing new but it isn't exactly behind the times either. Vancouver has been popping up a horde of box clone restaurants with paper cut hostesses and university student faux hawked waiters that can barely spell 'szechuan beef' let alone serve it.

This restaurant though has always had a mature staff and stable menu, you can go in, be seated and just sit down to eat. I read some other reviews arguing the price, did you look at CinCin's prices down the street? They are easily double and it isn't for the food quality.

Yes there are cheaper italian restaurants in the city but on Robson? Forget about it. You pay a premium for location and that translates into the price we pay for the food, nothing new there.

One thing that is new though is the menu which is long over due, we have been going there for years and the new update is both refined and enriched. The veal milanese is incredible!! You wouldnt expect to find a dish like this here but considering the restaurant is surrounded by CinCin and Fortes it is expected I suppose.

I think anyone who takes the time to sit down and review a restaurant is generally a little more critical than most and for all the faults that this restaurant has (not unlike most in our city) there are some shining gems both on the menu and amongst the staff.
