Joe's Grill2061 W 4th Ave, Vancouver
Salvation is a good diner!
Submitted Tuesday, August 21, 2007 - 2:55pm [Dine in]

My wife and I have been looking for an honest to goodness diner since moving to Vancouver and I think we finally found it.

Cheap, delicious diner food - Check!
Big portions - Check!
Great prices - Check!
Fast and friendly service - Check!

For just over $20 my wife and I walked away stuff with great, fresh, homemade diner food that was made with love.

Their patty melts are delicious and they use handmade burgers instead of frozen pre-made crap. The fries are cut thick and were fried to golden crispy brown on the outside, soft and yummy on the inside, just perfect. The coleslaw that came as a side was fresh made, not from a jar and was actually really good.

We will be making this place a regular haunt for sure. If you're in the mood for cheap, yummy diner food, I can't recommend Joe's Grill enough. The next best thing is Murphy's in Port Coquitlam.

Crap...
Submitted Monday, August 20, 2007 - 11:29pm [Dine in]

Decided to try this place out with my wife tonight since we always thought it looked great, which it definitely wasn't.

My wife got the Carnivore Calzone - She said it was overcooked, the mozzarella tasted cheap and the salami was terrible.

I had a pizza with prosciutto, mozzarella, salami, olives and artichokes hearts. The mozzarella was cheap and tasted bad, the salami was absolutely horrible - just revolting and both the artichokes and olives tasted like they came straight from a can. The only good thing about the pizza was the crust and prosciutto.

We paid just over $40 for the medium Calzone, medium Pizza, a diet Coke and a beer. For the price we paid for everything, we were both expecting much better food and way better service.

The waitress never asked if I wanted a refill when my pop was empty, but offered my wife a refill on her $5.50 beer (weird), she never asked how the food was and she was slow all around. We spent over an hour in the restaurant at 9pm and it was dead, but the service was still crap.

To top it all off, our leftovers were packed in TINFOIL! Never before have I seen a restaurant simply wrap left overs in tinfoil.

We won't be going back.

Nice Digs, Good Grub, Terrible Service
Submitted Friday, July 27, 2007 - 1:11pm [Dine in]

1st Visit - Had the Bison Burger with Stilton Cheese. The burger was very good, the Bison is good quality. The fries were small, overcooked, limp and not very good. We were in a group of 4 out for an office lunch and the service was terrible. We spent well over 1 hour in the restaurant, which is far to long for a quick work lunch, especially in a restaurant like this. We chalked it up to growing pains, as the restaurant had only been open a day or two. Plus side, the servers were very friendly and it wasn't their fault it took so long, the kitchen was really slow.

2nd Visit - Another work lunch, same group, this time we wanted a patio spot. We were told we'd have to wait 15mins, which was no problem, so we sat at the bar and had a few drinks. 30 - 40 mins later we were finally seated outside. Once we were seated the orders were taken promptly, but the food took another 30 - 40 mins to arrive. Had the beef dip. It wasn't very impressive, I've had much better elsewhere for much cheaper. Also got a side Caesar salad instead of fries, which was much better. In total, we spent just over 2 hours in the restaurant. After complaining to the waitress a bit they did comp 1 beer for each of us, which at least showed they were trying.

Overall, the place looks absolutely gorgeous, a lot of dark wood was used to make the restaurant and it feels elegant. The servers were very friendly, as was the bartender. However, I would rather go across the parking lot to Steamworks (owned by the same person, mind you) and get better tasting food for a bit cheaper.

The place has real promise and I really hope they can work the kinks out of the kitchen. I'll give it a few months and try it again, as I do think this place could be fantastic.

Bogart's Chophouse & Bar1619 West Broadway St., Vancouver
Very tasty...
Submitted Thursday, June 21, 2007 - 11:17am [Dine in]

Took dad to Bogart's for fathers day.

We were seated as soon as we walked in (7:30), the server was very attentive, brought our bread, water and drinks and took our orders in a timely manner. It took a little while for the food to show up, only slightly longer then I was expecting, no biggy, gave us more time to talk, relax and enjoy the fantastic cocktails (I highly recommend the Big City Blues).

When the food showed up it looked and smelled fantastic, was nice and hot (no sitting around on the hot plate) and tasted fantastic. Not to mention, all 3 of our steaks were cooked to perfection. My dad got a Striploin done Medium, I had a Medium Rare Striploin and my wife had the Veal Chop Medium Rare.

The steaks and chop were all the perfect size, perfectly cooked and very, very tasty. I usually hate fat on my steaks since most people don't cook them right it always ends up chewy, well, not this time around, it was like warm melting butter, just delicious. The presentation was simple and attractive and the serving of asparagus was a nice portion and quite tasty.

Everyone loved their meals, my wife especially. She said the Veal Chop was absolutely fantastic and it looked great.

Only 2 small complaints on the night: My dad got a rum and coke and asked for the rum and coke to be separate, when it came it was mixed. I made reservations at 7:30 so we could enjoy the live Jazz music at 8:00, but it was just a bit to loud for my liking, very enjoyable music, but slightly louder then I was expecting and it made it difficult to chat.

Overall a great experience, great food and great atmosphere. Bogart's puts the Keg and the likes to shame in all respects and we will be going back again.

Total bill was $146 w/ tax, before tip. We had 2 Striploin steaks, 1 Veal Chop, 3 Cocktails, 2 Highballs and 3 Beers. Not a bad price for the quality of everything.

Good Late Night Eats...
Submitted Thursday, March 15, 2007 - 2:45pm [Dine in]

My wife and I have hit this place after 9:30 for the all you can eat several times now and really enjoyed it. The portions are smaller than most all you can eat joints I've been to, but the all you can eat obviously takes care of that. The food has been consistently really good every time we've gone. The service is, as many people have said, a bit wonky. The first time we went we were seated in the main portion of the restaurant and the service was incredible. Food came right away and was quickly replenished. When we sat on the other more secluded side of the restaurant service wasn't nearly as good, but still wasn't terrible. I recommend getting a seat in the main area if possible and ordering the Korean BBQ Pork, yummy!
