Ya gotta eat here!
Submitted Friday, January 20, 2012 - 8:30pm [Dine in]

Been there twice now for lunch. Each time 3 of us invaded. 1st time me and a couple girls from work 2nd time all guys, me Dad and Bro. Both times we ordered our sandwich of choice and shared the garlic/ parmesan fries. EVERYONE gave a 2 thumbs up. The prime rib is tender and succulent the buns are very good too. The fries ..... while they were cooked perfectly.... they were pretty much forgettable. After having the Garlic Fries @ Safeco field watching the Mariners play, nothing - I mean NOTHING compares. Ambience? Well there isn't any. You order at the counter, take your number, grab your own condiments, water, napkins, hot sauce, etc and pick a rock hard seat and wait. Be sure and order your sandwich WITH as in with sauteed onions. mmmmm I'll be back

Cajun Chicken blah
Submitted Friday, January 20, 2012 - 8:07pm [Dine in]

Busy Friday lunch hour, place is pretty full. 3 of us for lunch, ambience is great. little bit noisy, lots of beautiful people especially the wait staff, place has a great Yaletown vibe. I wonder what the hiring criteria might be hmmm???? Service is friendly, maybe a tad clumsy but all is OK. Anyway on to the food, that's what we came here for right? My dining partners were both happy with their meals, One ordered a burger and fries and the other a chicken stir-fry. All good. Me, I have the Cajun Chicken 'sandwich" and salad in lieu of fries. Presentation was nice but it was actually a burger. Bun looked good along side a teeny-tiny pile of mixed greens that looked like they belonged on the sandwich for a mere $1.50 upcharge. They were very good but were only worth a buck-fifty. The 'sandwich' was very disappointing. Cajun? didn't notice any Cajun flavor, in fact the chicken itself was barely noticeable. Mind you it matched the micro salad. and that wonderful LOOKING bun was dry and tasted day old. Maybe supper brings 'today's" bread products. All that eye cany made up -sort of- for the hefty $17 bill. Ouch!!! and I only had water (somehow missing ice) maybe that's a an extra buck-fifty too.

Good noodles

Had lunch here a couple times and the food is very good. Lunch menu can be ordered with rice or for an extra charge with the in-house made Noodles. There are several different types of noodles all are very good. It was better with a co-worker so we could order a couple different items and share. I’ll be back

Thank you so much

I want to relate a story of a very good experience my Family had with Venice Pizza. My Daughter was going through childbirth labour and we were in and out of Hospital a couple times. They sent us home once again until she was "ready" It was early afternoon and we were all in need of something to eat. We called Venice and told him our story so we ordered a couple pizzas for delivery. Unfortunately it was far too early for their delivery service. So we offered to come and pick them up. But the gentleman said that he could deliver them anyway. We told him we could arrange pick up but he INSISTED that he even though he was working alone he would close up shop for a few minutes to deliver the pizzas for us!! What an incredible gesture on his part. That will always be a very special and memorable day for all of us and it was made better by a very kind hearted person that went out of his way to provide special service. We thank so much for your thoughtfulness. PS a healthy little baby boy arrived just after supper time that night

Just like being in Mexico? Have you ever been there? Wow the reviews are WAY WAY better than the food.

A co-worker and I ate there for lunch a while back and she was craving mole type chicken dish me I was leaning toward Enchiladas or maybe a Burrito. She ordered the Pollo Mole and the Waitress warned her she might not like the mole so she would bring a small sample to try. Very nice. Me I decided on chicken Enchiladas. The Waitress dropped the free chips and salsa and disappeared. Upon her return she announced we have no chicken!! Huh? Faulty Towers episode maybe? and no mole sample either. Too bad

That's OK we'll munch on the chips and decide. The chips are room temperature just standard out of the bag type 3 colour SALTED type you and I might buy at the grocery store. The salsa? Looks like tomoto soup to me but maybe it's a wonderful homemade recipe. We both try it..........tastes like Cambell's soup with a sprinkle of taco seasoning maybe...... I look at my co-worker and she guesses Aylmer's or maybe No-Name tomato soup with a few mild spices. I try to kick try up a notch but no hot sauces on the table and none available when I ask. Huh? Just like Mexico?

Anyway I order the Enchilada with pork and Verde sauce and she orders off the "Special Burrito" menu pork also with verde sauce. What a disappointment. Kind of dry and soooooooooooooo bland. Her's is the same.
I got a small side of Habenero sauce (for a small charge) to try and give it some help. The beans and rice are a yawner also. Not coming back here again. After reading all the rave reviews about this place and other Mexican restaurants, I will never trust any of them again. Me, I'll stick to my favorite place in Bellingham for my "just like being in Mexico"

I grabbed a nice dark roast here the other morning and the friendly owner was pulling out some fresh scones from the oven. Mmmmm the aroma was great. Unfortunately I didn't have time to eat. Next time I'll make time for one of those scones or the homemade muffins. The coffee was excellent. I'll be back for sure.

Great Pizza
Submitted Tuesday, August 18, 2009 - 8:12am [Dine in]

This is our GO TO place for real pizza. No 2 for 1 here. They use lots of quality ingredients and real cheese. If you get it to go the pizza is surprisingly heavy. They have a nice front end with a handful of tables so we usually eat in and always take some home. I've tried the pasta but it's the pizza that shines.

My wife has been trying to get me to "like" Indian food for some time. We've been to a few and I haven't been all that impressed and to be honest intimidated by the menus. Not here. The staff are very helpful. Not being much of a curry fan I was able to order some very tasty dishes that we both liked. The Chicken Tikka is to die for served steaming hot on a sizzle platter. I also like the Cilantro Chicken Tikka. Vegetable Korma is another must have along with some Basmati rice and Nan bread. Very good. We usually end up taking some home. I have also discovered that their well priced beer is a great accoutrement to the spicy Indian food. We discovered that even though it doesn't say it, Chicken Tikka is considered an appetizer and will show up before any other entrees unless you specify otherwise. Now I must admit I do "like" Indian food after all

My wife and I along with a friend dined here recently because I was using a gift certificate. My wife and I both ordered the Greek style ribs. Our friend loves Roast lamb and remembered form a previous visit how small the lamb portion was. The waitress assured him there were 2 large pieces one was a shank and the other shoulder. "Our portions are huge" she declared. When it showed up it was absolutely tiny. Maybe 5-6 ounces of meat and lots of bone. Our friend is a big eater and said it was OK but was still hungry afterward. The ribs, where do I start. YUK. These things were obviously boiled to death sometime last week left in the fridge and reheated (microwave?) and plopped on our plate. Nothing on top. No oregano, no lemon no chopped onion. They were grey and unappetizing. It looks like a full rack but it must be cut in half lengthwise as the ribs are very short. Neither of us finished them and our friend had one bite and even though he was still quite hungry he wouldn't eat them either. What's with the rice anyway. Horrible. It was full of fennel and was WAY overcooked. I will never set foot in this place again. They get away with those ribs because I'm sure most people order them with BBQ sauce. There is lots of competition for Greek food and most of them are very good. Maybe Gordon Ramsey needs to come by for a visit. Save your money and go elsewhere.
