Aldo's Pasta Bar441 Columbia St, New Westminster
Cosy and Great Food
Submitted Sunday, February 12, 2012 - 8:38pm [Dine in]

Used Groupon to try something new last night. This place is 20 minutes away from our home in Port Moody so we decided to venture. Had read the reviews so really we had no expectations. Upon arrival we were greeted in a very pleasant manner. The restaurant is small and intimate....not so much romantic but very pleasant. We ordered a bottle of good chianti off the very limited wine list. To our elation, they decanted the wine at our table (something oh so many restaurants in this price range dont offer). Our server was very pleasant and attentive. We started with the House antipasto which was very authentic Italian and tasty. We followed that with gnocchi with carbonara sauce...stop here...possibly the best gnocchi we have had. Real potatoe and homemade Carbonara. Then, the veal Parmigiana with a simple tomatoe sauce...outstanding. All the pasta is fresh made on premise as are the sauces. Tomatoe sauce was thick and so wonderfully fresh tasting. We chatted a bit with the chef/owner and came away with the sense they have a real pride in the food they are serving here. Nothing over the top but a truly nice spot with great Italian food. Took the teramisu home and have yet to try...tonight for sure. Will definately hit this spot again when the desire for great tasting tomatoe sauce hits again.

Onyx Steakhouse & Lounge101 Morrissey Road, #7, Port Moody
Average Dining Experience Better Than Last Time
Submitted Thursday, November 17, 2011 - 3:43pm [Dine in]

Decided to give Onyx another try after not enjoying our first experience a few months back. Being a Wednesday night it was not busy, just another small table and ourselves. The waitress was pleasant but not very food or wine sophisticated. Ordered an inexpensive bottle of Napa zinfandel which she brought but could not open. I assisted her and allowed her to continue with the tasting and pouring...she took this all in fun as we did. Had the saganaki appie which was very good. For mains we had the prime rib (excellent) and the broiled salmon also excellent. Everything here is a la carte so ordered some brocolini (good) and some gnocchi which was not so tasty. Finished with a glass or port for dessert. Taxes in was $156.00 before tip. Overall, the food quality here is good, wine selection is good (you can spend $$$$), service and atmosphere is average. Seems to be getting better.

Hogan's Restaurant & Lounge50 Queens Street, Port Moody
Great Dining Expereince Consistently
Submitted Tuesday, February 15, 2011 - 4:44pm [Dine in]

I have dined at Hogans on several occasions and it amazes me that more people have not discovered this local gem. My job provides the means for me to enjoy just about any dining experience in Greater Vancouver. Still, I live in Port Moody and like to stay and support local enterprises....which can be pretty tough at times given the lack of choices and quality. Hogans is a family run establishment with owner Garry Hogan, his wife, and sons being active in the business. When you first walk in you are greeted warmly and the ambiance immediately sets you at ease. The dining area is quite nice and has the ability to provide an intimate table for two or tables for larger groups. Food is consistently good while the menu itself is pretty varied from the basic to a culinary experience. On my last visit this weekend I asked for the chef to prepare a plate for two surf and turf with some roast veggies. I must say the result was excellent and I appreciate that they will work with patrons to give more options than are on the menu. The wine list is weak but, hey, this is Port Moody. I am sure if you wanted to bring your own vintage they would charge you a corkage fee....bring a decanter too as they dont have these...again, weak on the wine end. The overall service was quite good but needs a bit more maturity and experience which will come. We ended up heading into the lounge after for a glass of port and to listen to the live music. I have on occaison just dropped by to the lounge for the music on weekends. Often, you will catch Gary Hogan and one of his sons playing some great music. Well worth giving Hogans a shot if you like good food and a bit more of a personal experience you wont get at the Boathouse.
