Amazing Poutine, Unfortunate Service
Submitted Monday, January 30, 2012 - 1:30am [Dine in]

This is kind of a cheater review, considering the only thing I had was poutine-- but it was glorious. The price was steep, but it seemed worth it in the end. The ambiance of the place was typical for a pub/bar type place. It was kind of tight, but maybe it was just because I came on a busy night. The service was TERRIBLE. A server had told me and the people I was with that they were no longer serving food because it was late... When they actually still were. And when we figured out we could order, the server was really rather rude. This could be understandable though, as we were yelling our order to her and she may have misunderstood us, considering the surroundings were so loud... But I feel that it's sort of a given that we have to yell to give our orders because we don't have any other choice.

Overall, I'd go back. Can't stop thinking about the poutine now, hahaha.

It was okay, I guess...

I came in with my sister for a birthday dinner and was sort of floored (in a negative way) by the level of noise in the place. The website made the restaurant look much more formal than it really was, which was just an O.K. decorated sports bar.

I did the Dine Out Vancouver menu and had something like... three cheese broccoli soup, jambalaya and lava cake. The food was great, no complaints there, but it seemed like the price was kind of steep, even for the amount of food served.

As for service, our server was great and seemed really happy to be there, so that was good.

All in all, I doubt I'll be going back, but not because of the food but because of the pricing and the ambiance of the restaurant.

Coffee Bar10 Water Street, Vancouver
Lovely Little Place, Good Tea, OK Pastries, Questionable Customer Service

Coffeebar located in beautiful Gastown and the exterior and interior of the actual place is very pretty. I love the logo and the bold, minimalistic signage. The place is well let and the music is always very good. The price of the drinks and pastries is similar to the pricing of Starbucks drinks and pastries, so it doesn't really come as a surprise when you're looking for what to order off the menu. I usually have the tiramisu. The first time, it was ridiculously creamy and lovely but the second time, the pastries' edges were hard. Neither did it look very presentable-- it looked like it had been sitting unrefrigerated all day (I came in the afternoon.) The hot chocolate and earl gray is absolutely superb. They really could use work on their latte art-- there's never really a comprehensible leaf on the drinks they've served me and my sisters' drinks. Also, I've had the same cashier serve me twice and she never smiles. It would be such a great addition to the whole experience if she at least looked happy to be in such a great coffee shop.

Love This Place!

I ordered the Pho House Special and Spring Rolls and I was filled up with stuff to take home too. The price is also cheap, and who doesn't like decent food at a decent price? :-) The service was kind of slow, but I find that they're often serving a mid to full house, so I don't expect too much in terms of speed. The ambiance is pretty okay. They keep the place clean. The restaurant feels really homey, especially with the (reasonably) close setting and chatty environment. The staff are always friendly and it's just a best-cost experience at Bao Chau.

So much "do not want" in one place. I admire the effort to make a bubble tea place, but there really isn't much here. The "pillow" walls aren't aligned, the potted plants are limp... I ordered a taro slush and it tasted half-melted and watered down immediately after they made it. My friend had what I think was a green tea slush and she said it sucked. She didn't elaborate why exactly that was, but considering she goes to a lot of bubble tea places, I'm sure she knew what she was talking about. The cashier wasn't the friendliest and she just seemed really bored... I like the name of the place though? :-/
