My wife and I had dinner here with another couple. They live in West Van and had been eyeing this place since it opened recently, so they were eager to join us.
First off, whomever listed this as a "$10-$20" restaurant must have been too drunk to remember. The four of us had 2 glasses and 1/2-carafe of wine, 2 soups, 3 second plates (meat dishes) and 1 first plate (pasta), 2 desserts, and 2 coffees, and the tab came to $260 with tip. The meat dishes are all over $20, if I recall properly, and the pastas are generally in the $15-$20 range. So adjust your price expectations accordingly.
Among us we had the veal and eggplant in marsala, the potato-crusted halibut, and the black cod. Each of us really enjoyed what we ordered, and were fully satisfied. The soup was a mushroom soup ($10) that resembled a French onion soup with a ton of mushrooms. That, too, was really delicious. The person who ordered the pasta is a vegetarian -- there was no shortage of choices for her, although many featured mushrooms -- and couldn't decide between two dishes, so the server offered to give her two half-orders, which she accepted. She was very happy with both.
Desserts were a bit disappointing, mostly for size. The Chocolate Trio ($8) was a small brownie, a loonie-sized chocolate pyramid, and something I've forgotten. The caramel-glazed-banana chocolate torte was very tasty but also modest in size (we split desserts).
The interior of the restaurant was pleasant and clean, but the ambiance must take a hit for the pile of wine boxes in the corner of the dining area.
There were plenty more things on the menu that I would have loved to have tried. I would definitely return, but I would be prepared to make it an expensive night out.
