Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
Just for the lamb
Submitted Monday, February 23, 2009 - 10:01pm [Dine in]

It has been a while since I have dined at Stepho's, probably close to two years now. But when ever I drive by the restaurant, I can't help but think about there tender juicy lamb; just barley hanging on to the bone. The price is incredible for it's taste and portion. My friend who never eats lamb was even extremely tempted to give it a taste. The line ups are just ridiculously long, I think the owner should really expand or open another location as this join is way too small for such a crowded part of town. During the summer on a nice warm day with some friends I wouldn't mind waiting over half an hour outside but we only see a limited number of those days here in Vancouver. Note, they do have lamp heaters outside for those who are waiting.

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House777 Thurlow Street, Vancouver
Great place for every occasion
Submitted Monday, February 23, 2009 - 9:21pm [Dine in]

My husband and I dined at Joe Fortes during Dine out Vancouver around the end of January. We were about 15 minutes early for our 8:30 pm reservations and when we arrived they had not even seated guest for there 8:00 pm reservations. But it's understandable as it was during DOV and Joe Fortes was located in the Heart of DT Vancouver, although parking was a pain unless you go for valet parking. The hostess seated us at the bar while we waited even though there was not where to sit and had to wait around for someone to leave. The bartender was attentive and friendly, the atmosphere was sophisticated yet casual. We were then called to our table 45 mins later, my husband and I both started with some fresh oysters, they tasted fresh and went down just right. My husband ordered the albacore tuna with macaroni, the sauce was delicious but the food was mediocre, my husband jokes that he had 'tuna and macaroni'! I think I had the jumbo tiger prawn, it probably wasn't great as I can't even recall what I ate! We both finished with a Vanilla Crème Brûlée - biscotti for dessert which was a nice end to our meal! I thought the restaurant was over crowded even for on days when it was not during DOV. It's a nice restaurant to gather family and friends and share laughs but not for a nice quiet romantic dinner. For the cost of $38 for a three coarse dinner, it was worth trying out if you have never been just for the taste and atmosphere. But if your going to dine on other days, there may be other alternatives to choose from.

West Restaurant + Bar2881 Granville Street, Vancouver

Submitted Thursday, August 2, 2007 - 1:29am [Dine in]

The restaurant looks tiny from out side, it's almost hidden like a little secret location. The interior design is attractive, the red in the room stands out yet the dim candle's set a gloomy romantic setting. The service is top notch. We were a group of four and i believe we had two to three waiters serving us. For my first course i had the Lobster (SALAD OF CHILLED NOVA SCOTIA LOBSTER, ARTICHOKES, ASPARAGUS AND BABY ARUGULA, TRUFFLE DRESSING) it tasted very fresh like the lobster was caught this morning and the truffle dressing..so delicious. For my main course i had the Halibut (FILLET OF QUEEN CHARLOTTE HALIBUT MOUGINOISE WITH DUNGENESS CRAB AND TRUFFLE) the halibut was cooked perfect! and for dessert i had the Raspberries (RASPBERRIES AND CREAM CHEESE MEYER LEMON ICE CREAM LAYERED WITH LEMON TUILES AND NOBO FRUIT TEA SYRUP) now this is heaven! i was so tempted to lick the syrup off my plate! it was That good! Overall i would definitly recommend someone to dine here on a special occasion, between the four of us including drinks the bill came about $400 >.< But it was worth it!

Monk McQueens601 Stamps Landing, Vancouver
Ambiance over taste
Submitted Tuesday, April 10, 2007 - 1:24am [Dine in]

I dined at Monk McQueens upstairs for dinner the first time with four other friends of mine over the weekend and i thought it was an nice but could have been better experience. The view of the boats floating outside at night on the water was beautiful and there was a live performance of a Jazz singer w/live piano music playing in the centre of the restaurant which made the ambiance quit romantic. The food was nicely presented but the flavour was nothing worth remembering. The appetisers that we shared were the Saltimboca Digby Scallops, Duck Confit, and the Ahi Tuna Carpaccio. The Duck was tender and the Tuna was not bad except alittle on the salty side. I ordered the Wild BC Salmon, and my friends had ordered the Pan Seared Arctic Char, Oven Roasted Pacific Halibut, Stuffed Free Range Chicken Breast. I thought the Chickent tasted the best even tho the restaurant is suppose to specialized in seafood. The Service was quit attenitive, the waiter came to fill our glass of water often but when we asked if there was anything special they did for a birthday, the lady responded with "um, well if you order dessert, we'll put a sparkler on it?" I think not. Our bill came to $240 w/drinks and all they could offer was a sparkler? hmm.. i would think twice before dining here again although i do enjoy the view and live jazz.
