Everything from a bottle
Submitted Wednesday, July 7, 2010 - 12:25pm [Dine in]

Food...I can throw a bottle of sauce over anything and do it for half the price.
Greek Salad was the worst I've ever had. I could smell the Kraft Greek Dressing soon as she put it on the table and with the first bite I knew I was right. As far as the actual salad is concerned, the tomatoes were pure mush, olives were sliced and from a tin, and the cucumbers were coated in a jelly, which clearly means they'd been sitting for a while before being used. All of that was piled on top of some romaine lettuce...seriously lettuce in a greek salad.

Second course...Spaghetti...I prefer Ragu...I'm not sure what they used, but it was from a bottle no question, and I have to admit this is the first time in my life I have been service spaghetti with carrots in it.

I can't speak for the wings personally, but my daughter and husband had them. From the look they were pre cooked, then re-heated. My daughter (age 9) said the buffalo wings weren't hot at all. My husband had their second hottest and said it was about a level 3...so he ordered their hottest and said that was an 11, but that they were just heat with absolutely no flavour at all.

Service...upon arriving the service was amazing, but the minute the food was on the table, we never saw her again. We had to find someone to give us our bill. No one even noticed most of the food on the table was left untouched.

Value...sure if you like crap, you get a lot of it for a fairly cheap price, but in my opinion, you'd get more satisfaction from spending your 20 bucks on a box of wings from costco and throwing some frank's red hot on them.

Ambiance...they are trying really hard to compete with the Joey's and Cactus Club feel, but they clearly have failed. While the TV's and Benches are nice...there is just something not quite right.

All in all if you're in that general area, do yourself a favour and keep driving to Joey's. It's more expensive yes, and you will have to wait for a table, but the food and service are outstanding. Better to spend 100 bucks and be satisfied than 50 and be completely disappointed.

Not worth the trip

First of all we walk in and have to wait 3-4 minutes for the belly showing waitress to get off her cell phone to seat us.

Next the menu says Martinis...and the price. I ask our waitress what martinis do you offer. Oh Um...I don't...haha, what do you want and and we can try to make it. Not good...I realize there are 1001 ways to make a martini, but I expect a list or at least give me a few of the restaurant specials, I went without.

The food all came fairly quickly, being as we were the only ones in the restaurant. It was ok, nothing I would go out of my way for, and based on the service, I'd by pass this restaurant to find something else, unless I were on my knees crawling in search of food. Bottom line is, when the food is just ok, the service needs to be outstanding...but ok food and bad service, makes a business that will soon be out of business.

If you happen to be in Vancouver and want Indian/East African Food...Try Jambo Grill...on Kingsway...They put this place to shame.
