Stage1307 Gladstone Ave, Victoria
Yum!
Submitted Thursday, February 26, 2009 - 12:13am [Dine in]

We were visiting friends in Victoria and they decided to take us to Stage for dinner. Our table had 5 people and we ordered 11 dishes. All were wonderful and SO TASTY!! I was pleasantly surprised also, how quickly the first few dishes came. The pace was also good, as we never were overwhelmed with more than 3 or 4 dishes at a time, so we could relax and ENJOY each dish. The server recommended the chicken pate, which was SO good. But my favourites were the pork belly and beef brisket & beans. Mmmm. Definitely would go there again the next time I'm in Victoria, and I would recommend it to anyone I knew who was visiting Victoria.

I'm used to going to AYCE hot pot restaurants, so this was a welcome change. I agree that the meat was fatty, but you need that fat to make the meat tender, and to add flavour to the soup base! Once you cook the meat in the broth, the fat melts away anyways, so it's not a problem for me. I thought that the selection of vegetables was good too. I especially liked the pumpkin! Dipping the meat/vegetables in the raw egg was delicious too! The only problem I had was that I wished the sukiyaki base could be replenished......adding water and soy sauce just didn't cut it. But I agree with the other reviewers....the value of the meal was excellent! I will definitely go again.

Bistro Pastis2153 W. 4th Ave, Vancouver
My Favourite Restaurant
Submitted Saturday, March 1, 2008 - 5:56pm [Dine in]

I love Pastis!!! Whether is for dinner (steak, fish, or rabbit) or for lunch (salad and frites), I always have an amazing meal at Pastis. It's so comfortable, that you can sit at the bar and chow down on some frites with a nice glass of wine/beer if you wanted to. I think that they make the best fries! Let's not forget about their dessert though. Their chocolate molten cake (my favourite dessert) is the best I have ever had and I've had it in Paris, Geneva, and London! But the best thing about Pastis is that the restaurant is so comfortable and the staff is so inviting. They are not pretentious at all. Wonderful each and every time I go. Thanks Pastis!

Beyond Restaurant & Lounge1015 Burrard St., Vancouver
Inattentive Service and Awful food
Submitted Saturday, March 1, 2008 - 5:47pm [Dine in]

We were celebrating a friend's birthday and decided to try Beyond for the very first time. What a mistake!! At first impression, the restaurant was absolutely beautiful and I completely agree with all the other reviewers in regards to the ambiance. However, the service and food was atrocious! 4 of us were the first to arrive at the restaurant. After being shown to the table, we were not greeted by any server/manager, or asked for our drink orders. Water was not even served to our table. We waited for 20 minutes before I finally had to go and speak to the restaurant manager. The manager was very apologetic and immediately served us himself.

Now onto the food. A few of us ordered from the set menu and the rest ordered a la carte; most of us ordered seafood though. All the seafood dishes were overcooked and lukewarm. My appetizer of mussels was almost cold because it was sitting on the pass because our server forgot to bring it to the table. The arctic char that my friends had from the set menu was so overcooked that it was hard and rubbery. My friend's cod was cooked from frozen so the middle of the fish was mushy. When we told our server this, she made no apologies. Her actually response was "really?" then she walked away.

It's too bad. Beautiful restaurant, drinks were yummy, but the food and management need an overhaul.
