Adesso Bistro1906 Haro Street, Vancouver
wonderful ambiance, delicious food!
Submitted Saturday, November 12, 2011 - 11:19pm [Dine in]

Had dinner here this evening with six friends. This is a charming restaurant in a primarily residential neighbourhood (West End), hard to find parking although found out later there was valet parking available.
Service was friendly and charming. I enjoyed the beet salad and seafood pasta. Portion size was perfect, dishes artfully presented and everything really delicious. The restaurant was quite busy but service was prompt and frequently asked how meal was going. The ambiance is fantastic, it is in the lower level of what I'm guessing is a heritage apartment, with beautiful wooden beams in the ceiling, velvet banquettes, gorgeous lighting, very romantic and intimate feeling. Unfortunately I was too full to have dessert, but meal was overall very enjoyable.

Burnaby Palace Restaurant3110 Boundary Rd, Burnaby
great little restaurant!
Submitted Wednesday, February 11, 2009 - 11:11am [Dine in]

I've eaten at this restaurant a few times and also ordered take out lunch on a couple of occasions for the staff at the hospital where I work. Food has always been very good- hot, vegetables always seem fresh, tasty flavours. It's not too greasy like some chinese food places. On nights when its quite busy it is annoying to have to wait (better to make a reservation I think) however once you get seated the service is pretty good.
Restaurant has been recently renovated and so looks nice, bathroom is pretty clean.
I have yet to meet someone who did not like the food here.
The so-called westernized chinese dishes, like ginger beef or sweet and sour pork, are fantastic.
But so are the spicier dishes such as the spicy green beans and hot and sour soup (which I strongly recommend).
I'd definately come here again, and bring my family/friends.

Dockside Restaurant1253 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Spend your money elsewhere!
Submitted Monday, July 21, 2008 - 1:16pm [Dine in]

A few friends and I decided to check out the Dockside after walking around Granville Island on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant patio was busy but the rest of the restaurant wasn't.
Setting is quite nice with a view of the harbour.
Service started out good but then steadily declined over the course of the evening. It took a while to get our appetizers and even longer to get our main courses- actually, an HOUR and a HALF between when we were seated and when we got our entrees.
After the appetizers and drinks it was as if the waiters had totally forgotten about us. It seemed strange because other tables who were seated after us for some reason got their food much earlier (but this may have been because they ordered different dishes?).

We were socializing and having a good time so this would have been acceptable had the food been excellent, however it was pretty terrible. Lobster ravioli was lukewarm and cream sauce wasn't thick enough and actually had a sour taste. My husband's alaskan cod was good. As for appetizers, the butter lettuce salad was mediocre but vegetarian spring rolls were tasty.

Entrees were moderately expensive. Even after we used an entertainment book coupon it was still way overpriced.
We complained about the food being served so slowly and the waiter was apologetic but you figure they would have comped some drinks or part of the bill.

There are so many nicer restaurants with better food on Granville Island. Next time I'd chose Sandbar, the Keg, Bridges, or even the fish and chips place by the fishing boats over this hole. I'm not sure why it's so popular other than that hotel guests find it easier to eat there. This restaurant doesn't deserve to be busy.

Wimaan Thai Restaurant1063 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Better thai food than I had in thailand
Submitted Friday, March 7, 2008 - 10:20pm [Dine in]

I have eating at Wimaan periodically for a few years now. I've eaten at a lot of other thai restaurants in vancouver and also love malaysian and singaporean food. The food at wimaan is always fresh, flavourful, and served steaming hot. Portions are a decent size, unlike some other thai restaurants. I especially enjoy their tom kha khai (coconut chicken) soup and their green curry. the tom yam soup can be thermonuclear hot, so you can ask for it to be less spicy. The waitresses are always friendly and attentive and ask how spicy you want the dishes to be. After going there a few times the owner always recognizes us and the service is excellent.
Some have commented that they didn't like the ambiance here, that it feels like a warehouse. Personally I like the fact that its really spacious, not crowded, comfy and has some lovely thai artifacts.
I just came back from touring thailand and found the food here comparable to some of the top rated restaurants in Bangkok's chinatown district and certainly better than a lot of restaurants that we sampled in the north and rural areas.

Hamilton Street Grill1009 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
Steak okay, service not
Submitted Sunday, November 25, 2007 - 10:35pm [Dine in]

I went to the Hamilton Street Grill for a private function on a weekend. Interestingly only one server at the beginning and a second showed up? about halfway into the night, for over 20 diners.
It took over an hour from the start of the function, for our orders to be taken and at least an hour for our food to come. Everyone was there by 7:30 but food (dinner, not appetizers) was on the table at 10 pm. Steaks were good but the delay was unacceptable. I suspect they stretched it out so people would spend more money on drinks and appetizers. There was also a long delay for people who didn't order certain types of steaks to get their meals, probably fifteen or twenty minutes.
I would not recommend having any type of function there.

Congee Noodle House141 E Broadway, Vancouver
Best Congee in vancouver
Submitted Sunday, November 25, 2007 - 10:26pm [Dine in]

I have eaten here several times, most recently two weeks ago. Congee is the best in vancouver by far. Thick, delicately flavoured with a hint of ginger, and they are generous with the meat, seafood or mushrooms. I have found it to be far too thin, salty or tasteless at other restaurants and often they are skimpy with the seafood.
Other really good dishes here include the BBQ pork, rice crepes or rice rolls with prawn or BBQ pork, Shanghai style noodles. It is annoying to not be able to make a reservation, but once seated, the food always comes very quickly and is very hot.
Service is okay. The ambiance is that of an inexpensive restaurant i.e. nothing fancy. The prices are really cheap so why would you expect more?
At least the bathroom is clean, albeit freezing cold.
The parking lot is usually a zoo, I would recommend parking on Broadway or a side street (meter parking).

Provence Mediterranean Grill4473 W 10th Ave, Vancouver
Excellent brunch experience
Submitted Sunday, November 25, 2007 - 10:13pm [Dine in]

I had brunch with a few friends this past weekend. The food here was excellent, very fresh and quite tasty. I had eggs benedict (croque monsieur), others had salmon eggs benedict and waffles. Portion size was reasonable and everyone enjoyed their food. Prices are a bit high but worth it. Service was prompt and excellent (no attitude at all). All eggs and meat were cooked perfectly as requested.
Everyone at this restaurant seemed to be well dressed and most were above the age of 50. Unfortunately I would feel uncomfortable wearing sweats for a truly relaxed weekend brunch.

Kirin Seafood Restaurant555 West 12th Avenue, Vancouver
Good service, for a change
Submitted Saturday, June 3, 2006 - 9:43pm [Dine in]

Kirin is a very nice, higher end Chinese seafood restaurant. We went with a friend who has a very discriminating palate. The sweet and sour pork with lychees was outstanding- the best I've ever had. Other very good dishes include the abalone and sizzling prawn dish. Service was prompt and attentive, unlike most chinese restaurants. There is a nice view of the city at night. The only things I didn't like were the bathrooms- not up to par, kind of grubby and those pull-down towel things are not hygenic. The only dish we didn't like was the dessert, candied apple and banana; just tasted like gooey breaded overripe fruit.

Memphis Blues Barbeque House1342 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
BBQ orgy
Submitted Tuesday, November 1, 2005 - 2:52pm [Dine in]

I have been to this place a few times now, each time I have been consistently pleased by the high quality of the BBQ. Excellent slow-roasted flavour. The ribs and pulled pork are delicious and the latter is particularly tender. The sides are also surprisingly good; the fries are coated with some blend of spices and salt that is finger licking good, coleslaw is fresh, baked beans melt in your mouth. The servings are a decent size, especially if you get a platter, make sure there are a number of friends to share with. So much meat it makes your head spin! Service is decent. Not much in the way of ambiance, but who cares when the food is this good and inexpensive.

Elixir350 Davie Street, Vancouver
Good place for a date
Submitted Sunday, October 23, 2005 - 12:33pm [Dine in]

This restaurant has changed a fair bit since I ate there around 2 years ago. Then it looked like a French brasserie and I had a mediocre sable fish that's not even on the menu anymore. Now it features several smaller rooms including one with red velvet walls and gilt mirrors, pretty swank. They had the option of ordering small plates which are larger than appetizers, but smaller than entrees, which was an excellent way to try many different things. Lobster ravioli and beef tenderloin were tasty; beef tartare was excellent. Portions were smaller than expected and food quite expensive. Service was prompt and the restaurant, plus the flashy bar next door, was full of attractive young people, kind of a 'see and be seen' vibe.
