Terrible service - especially if you are not oriental
Submitted Thursday, June 10, 2010 - 8:59pm [Dine in]

We have given up!

Tonight we called and ordered delivery at 6:10 PM - called back at 7 and was told it had "just left": We live 10 minutes away. At 7:20 called again; excuse "he got lost".

At 7:30 "give you half off".

At 7:35 - we told them - no thanks we are going out for dinner. As we were walking out the front door at 7:40 the delivery guy shows up and gives me a hard time that I won't take the order. (if it "just left" at 7 - wonder how cold it was 40 minutes later?)

The last two times we have been to dine in (the decor is a horrid orange colour), the service has been slow. What is curious was that both times, tables that sat down after us (and who were Oriental) were served their food much faster than us.

First time this happens - I think it is just the way the food comes out of the kitchen. Second time - I spoke to the Manager and his English seemed to disappear with no resolution. Third time - the slow delivery - you start to really wonder.

We won't give them a fourth chance.

Steak was soooo thin
Submitted Tuesday, November 20, 2007 - 8:58am [Dine in]

Review is about two weeks old. My wife and I had a night to celebrate and as we had heard so much about this place (including the very positive review in Air Canada's En Route Restaurant edition), we gave it a first try. Very impressive decor, though be prepared to get a bit of work-out if walking up the stairs to dining room. It was a Sat night and we were very surprised how empty it was (we were early - but I suspect that this place does a lot of weeknight expense account business) We choose a table facing the kitchen. We kept remarking on how comfortable the room was, and how much it made us feel like we were at sea on ocean liner. Service was very good - our waiter (David?) was formerely of Four Seasons - clearly very professional and a pleasure. Food was good (both had steaks). But I had been out the week before to Morton's on a corporate event and ended up having the same steak (bone in rib eye). When looking at the menu I remarked how much less expensive it was at Shore ($40 vs $56 at Mortons), however when it was served to me I was surprised how thin it was - about a 1/4 inch thick. Still it was properely prepared. My wife very much enjoyed her filet. She was surprised to find that they do not serve Prime Rib roast. After a so so dessert (the brownie), we headed downstairs to the bar, of after dinner drink and to enjoy the pianist (who was extremely good). All in all good meal, great atmosphere, relativily good value - but next time I might suggest we have a drink, before and after at Shore, but walk down to Morton's for Prime Rib and big thick steak.

The Food!
Submitted Saturday, September 15, 2007 - 11:26am [Dine in]

My wife & I were early evening walk ins. Met with courtesy by the wife of the chef and seated at table for two (they do it right - where you dine seated beside each other at 90%) facing into the restaurant (vs out towards the view of the firehall). Nice fixed menu ($38) with 3 or 4 things that each caught our eye (out of 6 or 7 under each category). We debated about the amount of wine we wanted and the hostess overheard and indicated we could have half bottle of any wine listed by the glass. The wine list was good - not extensive but offered a good range. We elected to start with the foie gras (a $6 additional charge) and it was exceptional! Beautiful presentation, and the bread it sat on really was quite unique. Then main was the lamb shoulder and both my wife and I started 'hmmm ing' with the first bite. Very tender with magnigicent flavour, again with exceptional presentation (slicd zuccini, egg plant, tomato - with small potato gnocchi). Dessert was one on the best (and largest) creme brulee and an absolutely incredible chocolate (volcano style) cake. The qualtiy of the food was absolutely first class. About an hour into our meal, another server joined the hostess (the restaruant was nearly full at this point) and their style was was perfect - not fussy or pretentous, but attentive and friendly. The only drawback, the interior lacks charm equal to the service and the food. $155 with a full 20% tip. Try Saveur.

Senova Restaurant1864 W. 57th Ave, Vancouver
Always a disappointment
Submitted Friday, July 27, 2007 - 8:33pm [Dine in]

My wife and I (living in Kerrisdale) due to the convenience of it, have always wanted to get a positive feel for this place - but somehow it just never quite hits the mark. We were big fans of the previous restaurant in this space (Co Co Pazzo) and Senova suffers by comparison. While it well tended by professional wait staff, and is a nice atmosphere, (especially in summer when the side doors are open), the pacing of the food, and the quality of preparation always seem just off a bit. Finally, you know when you go to a Restaurant and nothing on the menu grabs you (the opposite of when you can't decide because it all sounds so good)? This happens everytime to me (though my wife likes it a bit more than me). Something is not quite right here.....

Fish Cafe2053 West 41st Ave, Vancouver
Fish Cafe is consistent value
Submitted Friday, July 27, 2007 - 8:24pm [Dine in]

My wife and I live a block from the Fish Cafe and go through phases - we won't go for months and then will go every week for weeks. What is great is that the quality is very consistent. The fish is always very well prepared and is fairly priced. Markus - owner - is not there as often as once was, but there has been no slipage. The atmosphere is as the name suggests - a cafe, but it is colorful and comfortable in a warm way (especially in the winter near the fire place), and you can count of a good meal. This is one of the best places in Kerrisdale.
