I went here for Dine Out Vancouver, the $28 option.
Took a little while to find out the place - my friends weren't exaggerating when they said it was in a shady looking avenue.
First of all, know that this place is truly a tasting room. Don't go here expecting to get a real meal, it's only a sampling room.
Fine, but I wonder, if it's going to be a back alley, brick wall, dimly lit, and poor furnished (uncomfortable chairs) type of place, I expect appropriate pricing. For me that would be having a reasonable price. For others, the chic or ghetto look justifies a higher price. Maybe so for some, but personally II would only accept the current price if the food justified it.
I don't know about the wine, which may be the best part of the restaurant, and the service was solid. But I was not impressed by the food samples. Some of the cheese samples were ok, but one of them seemed like supermarket quality to me, as did the meat samples. Next time I want to go to a tasting room, I'll go to a local deli or even a touristic one, and save my $30+ dine out meal for a good steak...
