Crave1362 Marine Dr, West Vancouver
Great service, odd establishment
Submitted Thursday, January 7, 2010 - 3:21am [Dine in]

Really could not have asked for better service for a lunch. Server was attentive, and incredibly friendly. Absolutely remarkable. I find the prices a bit expensive for what you get, but with solid food, you cant really go wrong for lunch... Crave wont disappoint

This being said, the interior of the place just seems off. I would do some redecorating if it were up to me.

Al Porto Ristorante321 Water Street, Vancouver
Always a good choice

Great pizza, great value, and always service with a smile. Theres a reason why its its business.

When applied selectively, herbs and spices are a great way to enhance the flavor of a pizza. Carpet-bombing the pie with clusters of herbs, however, overwhelms the palate and prevents the other great pizza flavors from emerging, ruining the entire eating experience. Including an excess of herbs is an easy way to mask poor ingredients in a pizza.

Al porto does not make this mistake... great job

Edge Bistro, The3135 Edgemont Blvd, North Vancouver
Well worth the drive out
Submitted Sunday, September 13, 2009 - 7:54pm [Dine in]

A collegue told me about the restaurant and I finally had the chance to try it out - definitely glad I did.

We were warmly greeted as we entered the restaurant and shown to our table which was already set and ready for us. Ambience was nice, a little dark, but great artwork.

We started with a bottle of Cloudy Bay and had the antipasto platter to start. Great assortment of foods with the chorizo coming in a raddicho bowl which was just gorgeous.

We moved onto red with 2 glasses of the Edge cab. I had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly! My wife has the snapper which I tried and was also very very good. The sides with the entrees were unique and even had a tomato filled cucumber!

We had a mixed nut gelato and a home made marscapone cheesecake for dessert. Both were fair sized and definitely made at the restaurant. The cheesecake had some sort of raspberry sauce which we actually requested more of because it was so good.

The only problem of the night was that they didn't know the artists name of the person who pained the crab painting in the middle of the restaurant.

All in all a great dining experience. The service was detailed but not overbearing. We kind of just wanted to sit and have our appetizers and our server got it right away. Definitely will return again, well worth the drive up to North Vancouver.

Bishop's Restaurant2183 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Less than Impressed
Submitted Monday, September 7, 2009 - 8:51pm [Dine in]

While bishops is rumored to be one of the best restaurants in Vancouver, my experience was less than thrilling. I had the crab leg salad to start, and the Pemberton beef tenderloin as my entree. While the service was hospitable, my entree was overdone; not something you expect if you're going to drop $45 on a steak.

Overall the experience was good, but I was just hoping for more given what I had heard about the restaurant.
