Great ceviche
Submitted Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - 9:30pm [Dine in]

I came here with a friend at about 2 - 3pm on a Thursday. We had a really great server who was super nice, really helpful with the menu and eager and friendly. He offered us beer samplers when my date couldn't choose a beer, he was quick to go ask the kitchen how the mussels were being made that day, and he was really knowledgeable about the other menu items.

We had the albino prawn and scallop ceviche to start - it was so yummy! Lovely flavor and tender shrimp, and it came with delicious taco chips. For entrees, we had the lobster mac and cheese - the lobster was yummy, I liked the big chunks in there but the pasta itself wasn't really anything special. We also had mussels which were on special that day - they were really good - FULL of flavor, they came with pieces of bacon and were just really good. I thought to the eye, all the dishes looked small, but they were in fact perfect portion sizes for two people to share each dish.

We had a table with a view of Broadway and the sidewalk - it was an okay view to look at, nothing super special. I found the place got really noisy, and the decor was kind of different, in a funky kind of way, but I didn't think it was really a good place for a date - kind of misleading because when you look at the outside of the restaurant, it looks really fancy and elegant, and I just didn't really like it when I got inside.

A beautiful place for a date night out
Submitted Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - 9:10pm [Dine in]

I came here on a date - it was beautiful! This place has great lighting, cool exposed brick, and has a romantic and intimate feeling. We ordered two mussel entrees, the Coquotte and Vin Blanc. The mussels were tender and juicy, and the dish was full of mussels - so definitely worth its price! I definitely liked the Coquotte better because it had more flavor. We ordered dessert - the Nico Flume. It was amazing. Soo sweet, and gorgeously rich. It was definitely good for sharing - we were both full afterwards! I really loved the wait staff too - they were all really nice, and there were a lot of them, so it was easy to flag someone down if necessary. They kept an eye on our water refills, and on our dishes full of empty mussel shells, so I found them really attentive but not overbearing. All of the waitstaff also looked really professional, youthful, energetic, attractive people. I don't know if it's wrong, but I like a place with young, twenty-something servers. I will be coming back for sure!

tasty lamb and rice
Submitted Tuesday, May 28, 2013 - 11:27pm [Dine in]

I came here with a friend on a quiet Sunday night before closing. We felt bad we were their last call, but they were still really nice and friendly. I had the bbq lamb chops. They tasted great, and the rice was really nice, but I was disappointed that they were the small bony kind of lamb chops. They looked almost like little short ribs. I didn't think they were entirely worth the price paid, but still delicious.
The set of chutney's are really cute.

Delicious spring rolls
Submitted Sunday, May 26, 2013 - 11:31pm [Dine in]

I've decided this is the best place for Vietnamese spring rolls in Vancouver. They use the real pastry/spring roll skin for it, not the Chinese dim sum type one. Pho is good too, but they don't have a lot of options or exciting things. It looks like a hole in the wall but the food is good and it seems pretty clean. Service is good - they're nice and fast.

Good food & drinks
Submitted Sunday, May 26, 2013 - 11:21pm [Dine in]

I came here on a Saturday night for a friend's birthday party. It has really cool lighting, and it was a perfect level of busy, maybe half full - and it's not a big place. The food was really good - we had the Mussels in garlic butter, beef short ribs, duck breast, and agedashi tofu. Everything except the tofu was really good - the tofu was just kind of nothing special. I loved the mussels & clams - it only said Mussels on the menu, in butter - but it was actually a good sized bowl of mussels and clams in a broth - really tender and well flavored, and I love clams so it was a bonus for me. The duck breast was amazing too, super moist and with a little fat on each piece and the sauce was great. We ordered drinks, which were delicious as well, and very pretty to look at.

The servers were nice, but they didn't always come back with what we asked for, i.e. water, and we had to ask again. There was one girl who took a drink order and didn't write it down, and then came back five minutes later because she'd forgotten it - and then she didn't seem to understand what the drink was.

Random sidenote: The chairs are kind of funny in that they slide really easily on the floor, in a slippery kind of way.

Great casual place
Submitted Sunday, May 26, 2013 - 10:56pm [Dine in]

I've been here twice, and I thought the service and dessert/drinks were great both times. The maitre'd is always really nice, lets you sit where you like, and is attentive and fast. I like all their desserts, and their drinks are yummy too. There's always street parking outside, super convenient. The chairs aren't super comfortable (a hard wood?) but that's the only real downside to this place.

Nothing Special
Submitted Sunday, May 26, 2013 - 10:45pm [Dine in]

I went here on a Thursday night with five other girls. I ordered the gnocchi entree. I wanted to order two appies, because I wasn't really into any of the mains, but the menu 'requires' that every guest order an entree. I think it's an unfair requirement, since the food is already so expensive, and it's possible to order enough appies to equal the price of mains anyways. It wasn't a very busy night, but the service was poor; the waiter was nice, but we kept having to ask for things like water and wine, because we never got anything the first time we asked. A side note, I was surprised to see wait staff such as they have - I guess I just expected younger, more energetic waiters than they had. My gnocchi was fine, but it wasn't anything special. Definitely filled my stomach for the 30 dollars I paid for it, but not really worth the money. The view was definitely fantastic, and I liked the 'star-lit' ceiling, but the cheesy Italian opera style music wasn't really my style. If I had gone on a date, maybe. I definitely wouldn't go here again. I honestly feel like if there was no entree requirement, it might be worth it to enjoy the view and a few appies, which would be expensive enough already.

loved it
Submitted Saturday, July 18, 2009 - 11:54pm [Dine in]

I've been here for a big party with a private room, and I thought the food was amazing and the service was good. The tapioca pudding was reallly good, i found my love for that pudding at this restaurant. It may be a little expensive, but so worth it. great choice for parties and banquets, the food was consistently good for all courses and they handled big parties efficiently and smoothly.

Service was baaad
Submitted Friday, July 10, 2009 - 2:50pm [Dine in]

I've been here once before, and the food was great and the service was fine, but the last time I went, on a Monday night, the service was terrible. we waited for at least ten minutes for simple water, and our food came at least after a 20 minute wait. after our meal, we had to ask for the bill ourselves, and the waitress who gave us our change was short and unfriendly. the food was great though. or maybe it was because we were so hungry waiting for our food.

Delightful
Submitted Friday, July 10, 2009 - 1:57pm [Dine in]

Krispy Kreme is by far the best donut place in Vancouver. Their donuts are light, fluffy and delicious. they even freeze well! the place is clean, and well-lit, and great for a family day out. the whole kitchen is visible from the dining area, so you can see how clean it is. I think it's a great place.

Good
Submitted Friday, July 10, 2009 - 1:33pm [Dine in]

I went to this restaurant with some friends last night, and I thought that even though the dishes seemed expensive, it made sense because the portions were quite large, huge actually. We ordered several things: short ribs, which were tender, though they lacked flavor, the jap che noodles, which i thought were delicious, and was a huge dish, the bbq pork, which was great too, very tender and sweet, and the seafood pancake, which again i thought was nice, tender, it definitely needed the sauce that came with it though. All in all, I thought the place was great, it seemed clean enough. The bathrooms were locked, which was a little strange, and the service was efficient, if not overly warm.
