Restaurant 622001 McCallum Road, #106, Abbotsford
Delectable Evening
Submitted Saturday, September 1, 2012 - 2:29pm [Dine in]

Four of us decided to dine here to celebrate a couple of birthdays and we were all extremely satisfied with the food and service. It was a beautiful evening, so we decided to eat on the patio instead of inside. We tried a variety of Appetizers, Mains, and Desserts. My personal favourite was a seared scallop appetizer served with a bacon jam. Delicious! The scallop ceviche that they were offering as the nightly special was also really well done. Even the bread they served before the meal was flavourful, coming with hummus instead of butter. I will definitely be coming back!

One of my regular stops
Submitted Friday, February 25, 2011 - 5:58pm [Take-out]

When eating at Granville Island I will stop here 3 times out of 4. I love their soups and the bread that is served on the side is especially good. The fish soups are usually the best value and flavour, but the other options are often good as well. You can ask for a taste before you order so you know which of the 3 day's options you prefer. The small size doesn't look huge, but it is usually enough to fill me right up. I will order a large if I'm sharing.

Boathouse Restaurant, The8331 River Road, Richmond
The waitress made our evening
Submitted Friday, September 4, 2009 - 11:03pm [Dine in]

A group of six of us went for dinner tonight. They sat us at a round table, which was conducive to visiting. We could look into the kitchen and see the food being prepared. I just wish the lighting was a little better.

We ordered the yam fries, the calamari and the chili chicken for appetizers. I particularly liked the curried ketchup that they served with the yam fries. The chili chicken was solid. The calamari was OK, but not spectacular.

I had the prime rib dinner. The mushrooms and meat were good, but the potatoes lacked seasoning and the beans were undercooked. My husband had the seafood hot pot. The clams, mussels and scallops were delicious, but the crab legs were way overcooked. They did make the effort to bring him out some new crab, but it still wasn't great. The prawns were also lacking.

For dessert we tried the key lime pie and the apple crumble. Both were a little on the sweet side and I was unimpressed to find that the key lime pie had a graham cracker crust. A shortcrust pastry would have tasted so much better.

However, despite the occasional problems with the food, we still had a great night. Our server was spectacular, constantly anticipating our needs before we even had to ask for anything. My daughter asked her about the sparklers she had seen going past our table, and our server offered to bring her a sundae with a sparkler in it for her dessert. If only the chefs had kept pace with the waitresses it would have been a spectacular night.

A hidden gem
Submitted Tuesday, September 1, 2009 - 4:20pm [Dine in]

Since this restaurant is not on the main strip of Crescent Beach, I didn't even know it was there for the longest time. Then one day when we were driving around we spotted it tucked away on a back street and decided to give it a try. What a great choice! The restaurant is small, which gives it an intimate feel. I loved the decorations, especially the tiled fireplace that we were sitting beside. The menu is not huge, but it never the less provides a good selection to choose from. Our server was attentive and funny and the food delivered as promised. No complaints!

Bad Dog Grill33166 1st Ave, Mission
Delicious food in a trendy atmosphere
Submitted Sunday, June 7, 2009 - 12:39am [Dine in]

It seemed odd to find this restaurant nestled in the old part of Mission. It looked like it belonged on fourth avenue in Vancouver instead. In addition to the tables there was a comfortable set of lounge chairs near the front and a book shelf full of books in another corner. Brightly coloured art work stood out against the dark walls. We went in the middle of the afternoon on a Saturday and the place was practically empty, except for the occasional person dropping in for a coffee.

I ordered the house salad and it was fantastic! Fried mushrooms and bacon served on spinach greens with a sweet balsamic dressing. My husband had the soup of the day and a meat lover's calzone, both of which were also good. The total cost for both of us came in under $20. I would definitely go back again.

My new favourite restaurant
Submitted Friday, December 21, 2007 - 9:43am [Dine in]

I've eaten here a number of times, including once at the chef's table for my thirtieth birthday celebration. Every time the food has been fantastic. If this restaurant was located in Vancouver you would be paying at least double for the kind of meal that you get. Some of my favorite dishes that I have tried have been the spring salad with castle blue cheese (best ordered spring/summer), the slow roasted pork with lentils, and the lemon panecotta with candied rhubarb sauce. The dining room is small and comfortable with nice artwork on the walls and quiet background music. Just right for a romantic evening out when you actually want to talk.

Best Calamari Around
Submitted Thursday, August 30, 2007 - 9:50pm [Dine in]

We went early on a Thursday evening, so we didn't get to experience the dancing that is typical of this restaurant, but we still had a great dining experience. The waitress claimed that they have the best calamari in town, so we ordered it and a plate of antipasti for our appetizers. I have to say that I agree with her. The batter on the calamari was light and flavorful, and the dip was the perfect accompaniment. I've never had better.

All four of us ordered pasta for our main dish. Mine was a homemade tagliatelle with mushrooms in a cream sauce. Really delicious! My fellow diners also enjoyed their dishes, but I think mine was the best pick of the lot. For dessert we tried some of the gelato. It's purchased from Mario's, so I can't credit Laguna's with the making of it, but the presentation was really beautiful.

The decor of the restaurant is adequate, but the chairs make it feel a little like a convention center instead of a nice dining establishment. That's only a minor complaint though. There is a great view of the river, so you're not likely to spend much time staring at the decor.
