O'Doul's Restaurant & Bar1300 Robson Street, Vancouver
Great service, great food. Worth every dollar.
Submitted Tuesday, January 30, 2007 - 6:59pm [Dine in]

Went to this restaurant with my girlfriend and I found it to be a great experience. Fantastic and friendly service, food that was worth every dollar (though the potatos were slightly undercooked) and a reasonably priced wine list.

I had a great time and thought the experience was worth the cost.

Good service & wine list, but not worth the price
Submitted Tuesday, January 30, 2007 - 6:56pm [Dine in]

Overall, I found this restaurant to be too expensive for what it is. The food was a bit above average, but nothing spectacular for the price.

The wine list was extremely extensive, but very overpriced on most bottles.

The service was efficient, but rather "distant" and formal.

Valet parking was a nice plus.

Expensive Birthday Dinner...
Submitted Tuesday, January 30, 2007 - 6:50pm [Dine in]

Went here for a birthday dinner with 3 people. My lamb was overcooked. We ordered a bottle of wine, and were forced to use cheap and oddly shaped wine glasses. Given their wine list, they should be albe to afford Riedel or Spiegelau glasses.

Bill for the restaurant was hand printed and the service, while pretty good, was stiff/formal.

Sandbar Seafood Restaurant1535 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Good food and value for the money
Submitted Monday, January 22, 2007 - 11:01am [Dine in]

Went to Sandbar last night.

Good service, as was the food. Very good value for $25.00.

The only major mistake made by the server was taking away one persons plate, while the other one was still eating (this is a no, no as it makes it seem the other person is eating by themselves).

We also weren't given steak knives to go with our lamb shank until we asked another server, as there was a group of about 10 waiters at the back of the restaurant comparing and discussing two bottles of wine for a good 5-10 minutes - the manager should handle training before the shift, as opposed during the middle of a meal service. The bread also arrived late (she said it was still baking).

As well, when a glass of port was ordered, the server brought a quarter-ounce pour in a dirty glass -- and it was full of sediment! We complained, and she rectified it quickly.

I imagine the bartender didn't check the cleanliness of the glass, and didn't want to open a new bottle when he got to the bottom of the 1st one - lazy!

That being said, the above comments are being extremely picky and the experience didn't turn us off from dining here again (this was our 3rd or 4th visit here, including a birthday dinner a few months back).

Horrible Service...
Submitted Monday, January 22, 2007 - 10:42am [Dine in]

I went to the Stonegrill yesterday for the first time for Dine Out vancouver.

To say the Asian owner was overbearing and annoying would be an understatement. He came to our table FOUR times:

1.) Once to ask welcome us and ask us what we ordered
2.) Came to our table a 2nd time to ask us what we ordered (again) and give us a 5-minute lecture on how to cook the food - which the waiter had already gone over
3.) Came to our table to ask how everything is (which our server had already done)
4.) Came to our table to ask how everything was

Our waiter never asked us if we wanted another drink after we finished our first ones, and it took him over 15 minutes to notice the empty glasses and take them away.

He also didn't know the difference between the different seafood types that come on the platter, and mixing up mussels and scallops.

That being said, the food was OK and the cooking method was interesting, though I found it funny how they counted out exactly 3 nugget potatos for our dinners (they aren't that expensive!), and how they charged us $2 for a basket of bread (come on!)
