Felico's Restaurant8140 Leslie Road, Richmond
Simply horrible
Submitted Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 12:29pm [Dine in]

Felico's was the biggest disappointment, this week. We arrived with a large party of 15 - everything here was disorganized. We were taken care of by multiple servers who forgot our drink and dinner orders - we waited at least 20 minutes for our wine and beer.

The food was delivered individually, leaving some to watch as others recieved their entrees, some intervals being over 10 minutes. When at last everyone received dinner, half the meal was cold. The food was bland and overcooked. We had the appetizer of saganaki, which at 9 95 is over priced. It was overly salty (and trust me, I eat khefatyri saganaki a lot) and hard - It's pretty obvious the cooks left it to burn...the cooks here are just not up to par.

It was a disappointing experience in every way. Stay away from here. There are plenty of better greek restaurants than Felico's

Toshi Sushi181 E 16th Avenue, Vancouver
Good for the ignorant
Submitted Sunday, February 15, 2009 - 4:17pm [Dine in]

If you aren't used to sushi, and if you haven't tried a lot of other sushi places in town, and you don't mind a 45 minute wait, then Toshi is the restaurant for you

I find that the majority of the crowd here is Caucasian, like my self, and as such I'm not surprised that they find the food here good - it isn't. It's not bad, but it doesn't come close to some places like Sushi town or Sushi garden. First of all, it is more expensive than the average sushi bar or restaurant. The salmon was decent, but the piece was small and a bit on the bland side, though the texture was nice. my wife had the tuna, and was not impressed. We waited over 20 minutes for our food - although the place was packed, there were enough sushi chefs to handle the load - I've seen smaller places do a faster and better job - the chefs here are just slow.

The food looks absolutely delicious though - its apparent they take care to present the food properly, however the taste simply does not meet its presentation. Don't expect to leave Toshi with a great experience..it simply isn't worth your time unless you happen to be in the area.

For good sushi, I recommend Sushi-town in burnaby or Sushi garden in vancouver - the rolls are bigger, tastier, and cheaper. If you are in the downtown area, try Aki sushi - great value for downtown prices, and good flavor

Good Morning
Submitted Monday, February 9, 2009 - 11:22am [Dine in]

I had breakfast here, and it was quite good

Normally I'd say that it is a bit on the expensive side, but given that it is in downtown the price is just right. Had the usual breakfast favorites - portions are fairly large and I agree with the previous posts that it is a bit greasy. The fresh fruit they serve is a nice touch.

Drop by if you happen to be nearby

Gramercy Grill2685 Arbutus Street, Vancouver
Everything but the food
Submitted Monday, February 9, 2009 - 11:17am [Dine in]

my wife and I decided to take advantage of dine out Vancouver, and some friends invited us to the Gramercy Grill. First of all, the service was undoubtedly excellent, and the environment was classy and inviting.

The food was another story. Three of us had the scallop appetizer, while the last person had the fennel. Although I am used to fine dining portions, we were served three miniscule scallops each. They were tender but flavorless, despite being flooded with sauce. We each had different entrees: I had the lamb shank, and I was not impressed. There was hardly any flavor to the lamb, and the vegetables were rock hard and unfinished. The mashed potatoes might have been good had they not been completely saturated in some sort of broth.

The only course we enjoyed was desert - the lemon tart was extraordinary. If you are paying anything over $30 for an entree, it must have some flavor to it at least, which the lamb clearly lacked. Stay away from the tenderloin - leave that to The Keg. If you like lamb, try Kalamata or Panos Greek Taverna. A fraction of the price, and much more flavorful (especially Panos - absolute steal)

Panos Greek Taverna654 SE Marine Drive, Vancouver
Excellent casual dining
Submitted Monday, February 9, 2009 - 11:06am [Dine in]

My wife and I have visited Panos several times since September, and I must say that it is always a pleasant experience, especially since the beginning of January - there used to be a very rude waitress, but we haven't seen her around lately. I couldn't disagree more with the previous post - Panos is a casual and small restaurant (family owned and operated, if I understand) - you are paying unbelievably low prices for top quality food and service. I would hardly expect the staff to serve in their Sunday best for a $14 entree.
To us, Panos is a place where friends meet over wonderful, inexpensive food. The fact that the staff is always warm and friendly is testament to that. Our server is usually Johnson, a Japanese fellow I think - whom always gives us excellent service and has a knack for picking out good wines. We had a bottle of Bootaree ($27 I think) which was the perfect compliment for our dinner platter for two.
This place is always packed, and at times the service can suffer a little, but this is completely understandable considering there are only two servers for the whole restaurant. We've been served a couple of times by two other women, and both of them were fantastic. Be careful if you visit Panos - it might just become your favorite hangout

They always tote the roast lamb - usually it is juicy and tender and absolutely wonderful, but it has been a little overcooked a few times. for $13 dollars one can't complain.
