Le Crocodile909 Burrard Street, #100, Vancouver
Excellent and unpretentious!
Submitted Tuesday, June 30, 2009 - 10:31pm [Dine in]

Food - The lobster tempura and scallop salad was fresh and delicious. The flavours were perfect. The frog legs had a beautiful truffle oil flavour. The portions of the mains were HUGE. This is the biggest portion that I've seen for this price at any fine dining restaurant in Vancouver. I had the lamb, and my guest had the prime rib - both delicious.

Service was excellent. Very attentive but not pretentious at all. They paid attention to every detail, but yet did not make you feel like you were being hovered over. Our waiter was very helpful making great recommendations.

We will be back and we will be recommending this restaurant to family and friends!

Sweet Revenge Patisserie4160 Main Street, Vancouver
Overpriced and rude server
Submitted Sunday, June 28, 2009 - 11:01am [Dine in]

The desserts were solid, but small in size and definitely overpriced. I had the creme brulee, and others at my table had the sweet revenge, pumpkin pie and white chocolate cheesecake. All were tasty, but nothing that we haven't had elsewhere.

we were really unimpressed by how rude the waiter was. He came to our table to get our orders, and in the middle of us ordering, he said, "I hope you know there is a $6 minimum per person. That means you need to spend at least $30 for your table." We found this a little bit insulting, as we were all ordering a drink and dessert, which would come to around $10 per person. It seemed odd that he felt the need to point out a minimum amount?? Then, in the middle of eating, he came to our table to ask if we were parked in the customer parking lot in the back and said one of his workers was coming in, so please leave or move a car. We weren't even done eating yet.... Poor taste on his part. I won't go back. The desserts weren't good enough to make up for the poor service.

Biercraft Bistro3305 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Salty Stella's
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2009 - 4:01pm [Dine in]

My husband and I were excited to check out Stella's on Cambie, as it seems to have been bustling for it's first week of service. We were hoping to try their brunch menu, but by the time we arrived around 12:30PM, they were only serving lunch.

I had the roasted tomato basil soup. It was chunky, with fresh tomato and basil flavours with fresh cream on top. It was good, but definitely not the best I've had. I also had the Madrid Mussels. They have fresh plum tomatoes and chorizo sausage. The mussels were good, but REALLLLLY salty. I couldn't eat the whole thing because the salt was just overwhelming. We told the waitress we didn't want fries, but she brought them anyway. they were also ok, but just made things more salty.

My husband had the mac n cheese with panko bread crumbs. The mac n cheese was creamy and tasty, but again, nothing to write home about. It came with a side salad that was tossed with a realllllly salty salad dressing.

The place was a little bit dark inside for lunch time. Had more of a pub feel.

In general, the food was good, but not memorable. And it was way tooooo salty for me. I think next time I go back, it will be for tapas and a drink in the evening, or for brunch first thing in the morning.
