Unexpected Suprise
Submitted Thursday, October 25, 2007 - 8:49pm [Dine in]

We went on a recommendation of a friend.
Elegant room that had tables with lots of elbow room. We found ourselves very comfortable.
There is a choice of having a 3 course menu for $38 or ordering what ever you want ala carte. I discovered that there were several things that I would like to try and had to decide what wine to drink first so I could pair up the food and make the decision easier.
Dinner was delicious course after course and we felt very taken care of with professional service.
All in all it was a lovely setting for our special occasion and really not too expensive.
I reccommend this little gem to anyone looking for a nice French dinning experience.

Interesting evening
Submitted Monday, October 8, 2007 - 11:56pm [Dine in]

We went fairly early so no line up to worry about. I still don't get it when I walk into a Japanese Restaurant and everyone yells something at you. Sometimes I wonder what they are really yelling or maybe what they would like to yell. It was a Sunday and every one seemed a little tired. I can imagine as the place seems to always be busy which is always nice to see but I'll bet can be tiring by the end of the weekend.
We tried one of the fresh fruit and alcohol drinks because a friend told us to. It was nice having the fruit squeezed at the table. On the adventurist side we tried the beef tongue that you cook yourself at the table on a hot rock that comes out of the kitchen. I seriouly need to improve my chopstick cooking skills as two of the five slices of meat fell on the floor during my attempt at medium rare. Perhaps I just need a flatter rock to cook on because mine was the mount Everst of cooking stones.
Interesting experience, not too expensive and lots of things to talk about. Don't think I will order anything I have to cook on a stone again until they come up with a less vertical surface to cook on.
Definitely worthy of a visit.

Pleasantly Suprised
Submitted Sunday, September 2, 2007 - 10:40pm [Dine in]

Last night was a special occation so we were looking for something different and memorable. We found this restaurant right here at Dinehere.ca. I can say I was a little sceptical but the rating persuaded us to take a chance. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised!
We were running a bit late so I called to inform them of our tardiness. To my suprise I was informed that anytime I arrived was fine as the table was mine for the night??
We were sat right away and ordered cocktails to soothe our "running a little late" nerves. Great Cocktails! We enjoyed a Mai Tai and a Mojito. And to our complete suprise Connor himself came out and presented us with a tray of canapes (to enjoy while we looked over the menu) and told us of what he had going on in the kitchen that was not on the menu.
From the short but sweet Wine list, we settled on a fantastic full bodied red called "Tait - Ball Buster" with the help of the "unsnobby" sommelier.
The appys were splendid. I had a fantastic Steak tartare which was served on a potatoe pancake with a bruleed egg yolk on top. And my wife had salmon that was smoked at the table?? It was literally smoking!
For the mains I had the dry aged Beef. I am now a believer! My wife had the Halibut and Side stipe shrimp and when she asked for the gnocchi instead of the recommended starch it was no problem. Both mains were fantastic.
We shared a strawberry dessert that was out of this world and then to our complete suprise just when we could eat no more there appeared petit fours. Talk about winnig my wife over for good!
We will be back.

Try the kerisdale Roll!
Submitted Friday, August 17, 2007 - 12:52am [Dine in]

We were just out looking for a not too expensive dinner after being out hiking all day and went into this restaurant. The ambiance was simple and appropriate. I personally didn't enjoy the TV that had the sound on a little too loud that was turned to a strange station but perhaps that was just me. They got really busy while we were there and the service slowed a bit but that was too be expected with a rush like that. Nice to see a new restaurant with what looked like a following already. The food was Great. The Kerisdale Roll was fantastic! We were stuffed, had a couple of beers each and the bill including tax and tip was under $50.

Love the Taste of Belgium
Submitted Wednesday, June 20, 2007 - 10:17pm [Dine in]

Having traveled to Belgium and loved the food there it was fun to try out Chambar. Nice ambiance, great Belgian beers, and the plates we enjoyed were as close to Belgian cusine as I will get this year. The place had a nice buzz to it with a good crowd and fun atmosphere. I especially enjoyed my asparagus appy which was a play on an old classic I remember having in Brussels. Well done. I will be back as soon as I need another Hogarten off the Tap.
