Sonoma Grill & Lounge20598 Fraser Hwy, Langley
Menu with a personality disorder
Submitted Wednesday, October 26, 2011 - 9:49am [Dine in]

Went to the Sonoma Grill the other day for lunch for a co-workers birthday. It had been a few years since my last visit and I should have known better but wanted to give it another try.

The staff was welcoming and courteous, one can only imagine how they put on such a happy face when they are serving you such substandard food. Maybe you must have all your senses removed before you get a job here!

The menu just doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up. There is such a variety of ethnicities. We had french (quiche), German (Schnitzel), Mexican (quesadilla), Italian (Lasagna). There was also India (Butter Chicken) & China (War Wonton). Unfortunately, none is done well. I had the quiche special. The flavour was, well, how can I put it - ODD. and the texture was not how a well prepared quiche should be. The top was overly browned and crusty and the crust was stale and cardboard like. The only redeeming factor in my lunch was that I ordered it with the Cream of Mushroom soup which was tasty but unfortunately as a side of an entree, is only cup size.

My husband ordererd the Schnitzel. It is very pricey for a lunch as he ordered it with the mushroom sauce which is $3 in additional to the $13.95 entree. The large, flattened, bland piece of meat is draped overtop of dry chunks of potatoes in their skins, and then covered in the mushroom sauce which had a strange gelatin like consistency. It did not look very appetizing.

My co-worker across the table had the Seafood Lasagna which looked like yesterdays dogs breakfast, reheated. He ate half and complained of a tummy ache later that afternoon.

Heres the thing. When diners are getting food that is either overly cooked, or stone cold in the middle, it doesn't take a scientist to figure out that the food is precooked, and reheated. Hey, If I wanted a frozen dinner I could have bought a Swanson's at the grocery store!!

My recommendation, until this owner runs this restaurant into the ground, and a new face takes over, don't waste your time & money.

Waterstone Taphouse & Grill19988 84 Avenue, Langley
Pleasant Experience, Good Food
Submitted Saturday, March 14, 2009 - 12:56pm [Dine in]

I have been to Waterstone a couple of times now. The food and service has been consistently good. I love the lamb chop lollipops and my husband insists the scallops and bacon are the best. Last night I had the Chicken Roulade which is stuffed with goat cheese and asparagus, and served with risotto. All things good. How can you go wrong with that? It was fantastic. While my husband enjoyed the Wor WonTon Soup (which is definitely a meal in itself) it wasn't the best he has ever had. All in all, I found the menu very exciting and would like to go back again to try more items and would recommend it to anyone looking for a night out in a cool lounge environment.

Dublins Crossing18789 Fraser Highway, Unit 101, Langley
Management Seriously Flawed
Submitted Saturday, March 14, 2009 - 12:42pm [Dine in]

I went to the Dublin Crossing Pub on a Friday night at about 6 pm. I have been there a number of times and have enjoyed the food.There were no tables available except they had at least 4 large tables (Enough to accomodate about 50 people)) reserved and sitting empty. So for about 35 minutes while my party hovered waiting for a table, these tables sat vacant. When the Manager approached me and asked me if anyone has helped me after about 35 minutes of circling I told him how long I had been waiting for a table he replied with a smug smile that I will be waiting a lot longer than that. I was already at my threshold of frustration. I asked how he runs a pub with reserved tables sitting empty while other paying patrons are expected to wait and he swept his arms open like a King observing his kingdom and said with that condescending smile "Like this". He then said that he "only" reserves 30% of the restaurant until 7pm at which point if the party has not arrived, the tables become available. What kind of management keeps 30% of the restaurant sitting empty for up to 2 hours while paying customers are waiting?? I told him that I would certainly be leaving before 7 pm if I did not get a table and he responded with an arrogant reply that is was too bad for me. At that point my party of 4 left. (Ironically, as we stood outside about 2 minutes later, the table that we had been circling exited - we would have had a table. But at that point, anything they served us would have been a bitter pill to swallow.) We drove about 5 minutes down the street to another Tap Room in Langley where we got seated immediateley, the food was fantastic, and the service was attentive. This was such a ridiculous experience I would not recommend the Dublin Crossing Pub (which is actually in the Clayton Area of Surrey, and not in Langley) unless you are prepared for service with a SMUG smile.
