Rockford Wok Bar Grill19777 Willowbrook Drive, Langley
Hit and miss
Submitted Tuesday, December 27, 2011 - 6:11pm [Dine in]

I'm skeptical of food quality and value when dining at a chain, but we were hungry from Christmas shopping and we didn't have to move the car (high praise I know).

They've done a nice job on the renos, the decor is chic and inviting, the booths provide some privacy and the different heights and layers help with noise.

We had share plates, here's the hit and miss. Prawn gyoza was very good. Too bad the server didn't take time to explain the three sauces that were placed alongside. The prawn tacos with chocolate bacon were odd to say the least. Chipotle mayo was overpowering and the bacon thing just off putting, especially because it was rather soft ( not crispy like you would expect). Lastly the wok broccolini, way too much chili, we couldn't finish it, but downed two glasses of water! Best part of our lunch experience was the super cool teapots, just order one for fun.

I did scan the wine list and for dinner, that will need LOTS of work. PS. Rockford, not paying $51 for Kim Crawford Sauv Blanc, it's $21 at LDB. give me more choice and better value, we may return.

My husband and I dined here recently. Weekday early evening, we were the only diners when we arrived at opening. We were sat and served by the manager, a very personable French import who made it clear he was happy with his new home. Menu is one sheet, but plenty of variety. I had the carpaccio, it was outstanding. My hubby a goat cheese and blk olive spread. We had a BC merlot that did not disappoint and was only $60. My olive oil poached halibut on a ratatouille inspired orzo was superb. I NEVER say this at ANY restaurant, but i could have easily ordered five of the six entres offered. My hubby had a short rib rigatoni that was nothing but succulent. Service was top notch. We used a Groupon and were not treated any different than any other customer. The washroom was clean and well appointed. Only negative I could mention was the choice of music. A bit techno and in our opinion, a mismatch to the restaurant. Plenty of street parking and easy to find. Will return for certain.

New Moxie's - Same Outcome
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 8:57am [Dine in]

New location, in the Sandman Signature @ 200th & Hwy 1. Was looking forward to the rooftop patio, but it wasn't open yet. About 8 staff greet you and all repeat the drink special...a little monotonous, especially because "bad boy beer" is not something I would order. We sat on the ground level patio which was okay, despite the techno blaring above us. Had to get up and actually track down a server to bring us drinks, too bad one of those eight that greeted us wasn't given additional duties.
The white wine arrived warm, not offf cold, but actually warm. After asking for a cooler and some ice, it took a full 15 to get it drinkable. Ah, bartender? Apparently their liquor order arrived late? Perhaps suggest an alternative?
Food was very average, the avocado spring rolls are just weird. Warm avocado just doesn't work. Everyone at the table tried a bite and agreed. Crab cakes were bland and over coated and calmari portion could not be shared, there was so little of it. Compared to the food quality to somehwere like Cactus Club, this doesn't even come close. The staff as usual have little clothes and apparently even less training or knowledge of how to provide good service. The manager did visit the table and comped the avocado, nice to see at least an effort, but it won't be enough to bring us back. I'd choose Brown's instead.

Coza! Tuscan Grill20065 Langley Bypass, Langley
Glad we went, but
Submitted Sunday, December 6, 2009 - 11:12am [Dine in]

My husband and I are both foodies and for this reason have nowhere to eat in Langley. Sad, but true. The food is usually quite pedestrian and the servers are dressed like they have another job (on the corner) after service completes. Coza however, was a very pleasant surprise. We were greeted immediately and remembering that this was our first visit from the conversation I had when we made the reservation, the hostess pointed out the restroom location as we walked to our booth. Doesn't seem like a big deal, but the fact they actually made an effort didn't go unnoticed. The restaurant is larger than I thought and unfortunately does have a bit of a "chain" feel. Too bad about the television and the wood back chairs. Also, what's with the lighting? The chandeliers were bright enough to perform surgery if you wanted. The menu stays traditionally Italian which is nice, but might be a bit too big. Wine list was another pleasant surprise, a key factor whenever we dine out. I had the anitpasto misto and the sliders, my husband the chicken which he didn't care that much for unfortunately. Service was outstanding, our server very responsive & genuine. Upon pouring the first glass from our 2nd bottle (don't worry, there were four of us) a foreign object in the glass caused her to replace it. Moments later she returned with a small carafe to replace the wine that was spoiled. Nice touch indeed.

So in conclusion, I think we wouldn't hesitate to go back should we decide to be dining out in Langley. A good spot for the girls after a movie.

Happened to be at Queen's Park recently (for the Police & Fire Games) and walked over to this restaurant for a light lunch. The decor is horrid - please, time for an update. Seemed like everything was worn out, my husband found the holder in the restroom was held together with green painter's tape. The chairs are nasty and need a good cleaning. We ordered a glass of Chianti, seemed the safest choice after seeing a "Genurtraminal"? When we asked the server what this was (blend of Gewurtz maybe and Gruner Vetliner was all I could come up with) - he said, "No, just a bad spelling mistake" HUH? The caprese salad was a joke, five rounds of pale red field tomato topped with slivers of mozza. Come on, it's August, couldn't you find a ripe tomato? The foccacia was about the only thing that saved it, seemed kitchen fresh and authentic. Wouldn't recommend to anyone, especially because of the wine butchering. Oh and did I mention the same server also suggested the Gazpacho? It's an Italian cold soup he says. Yah right, in Spain maybe!

Ruan Thai Restaurant4061 200 Street, #118, Langley
Unfortunate
Submitted Saturday, July 4, 2009 - 9:46am [Dine in]

Why can't anyone make good Thai food? On the back of the other reviews we ordered take away. Worst Pad Thai ever. Rice noodles, a scattering of grated carrot and a few chopped peanuts. The other two dishes, one a green curry, the other a bbq chicken special were better, but overall, very disappointing. Won't be back. No wonder the place was deserted. Only plus? The serving containers (2 of the 5 they gave us) are at least reusuable.
The search (for good Thai in Langley) continues!

Very Average
Submitted Saturday, November 22, 2008 - 12:49pm [Dine in]

We really wanted to like this restaurant and the people are certainly friendly, BUT, this was hardly authentic and seemed more like glorified chinese food. We ordered take out, the combo I think (see, not very memorable) and all I can say is it was on time. Other than that, totally forgettable. My husband picked up the food and said he would never eat in, apparently burning insense or some other strong smell would be unbearable to sit and eat in. It's too bad, we really like Thai food! Won't be back.

Was prepared not to like it
Submitted Sunday, October 26, 2008 - 9:59am [Dine in]

From recent reviews and some word of mouth, I went here this past week with a girlfriend for a quick appy before a movie. Decor is funky (love the white deer) and the booth we were sat in very comfortable. Guys were watching the World Series at the bar (do we really need tv in restaurants?) so sitting in the main dining room was loud. We ordered edamame and a spicy chicken appy, both arrived quickly (we told them we were pressed), were hot and tasty. We both had a glass of wine, mine a 9 oz. The bill was $50. I thought that a tad steep, especially considering we only had appetizers and one of them was soy beans. I would try it again and evaluate it on value, and certainly be asked to sit on the other side of the dining room where I might actually be able to talk to my dinner partner.
