Diamond, The6 Powell Street, Vancouver
Great place to share some appies and enjoy fabulous cocktails

I love sitting at the bar watching the boys create. Chelvis (you'll know who) is so intense, a complete perfectionist. Great drinks menu, great ambiance, the owners circle the room making sure everyone is satisfied.
The food, tapas style, is highly recommended. Both the duck/chicken and short rib subs are fabulous and good sized portions. The handmade gyoza is probably the best I've had and the ceviche is.. well.. elegant.

Good dim sum
Submitted Sunday, March 28, 2010 - 12:50pm [Dine in]

Pretty tasty, classic Dim Sum dishes. Show up by 11am to avoid the weekend rush, the line up on the way out was huge.
No cart service, orders are a la carte.
Service was good, very quick refills of tea and servers do take time to explain the dishes, something a bit of rarity at dim sum restaurants.

Not what it was
Submitted Tuesday, May 1, 2007 - 9:00pm [Dine in]

As already mentioned, the prices have increased significantly and the portions are not what they were. The jerk chicken is very good, the butter chicken was lacking in flavour. For take out there is better value in the neighbourhood.

Good food, service is lacking
Submitted Tuesday, March 20, 2007 - 9:40pm [Dine in]

We had a beef soup and the seafood pancake both of which I would recommend. The accompanied 'garnishes' were very good, especially the lettuce.
The service was very poor, it took 15 min to flag down a waitress to get the bill and we did not get a refill of tea, although; I must commend the owner for explaining each dish to us and making recommendations.

The place was full of Koreans on a Tuesday night so there must be a reason that it won Vancouver Sun's "Best Korean Food 2006" award.

I recommend it for the food

Sandbar Seafood Restaurant1535 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Great location, overpriced food
Submitted Sunday, March 11, 2007 - 2:22pm [Dine in]

We were going to the Waterfront theatre and so chose Sandbar for dinner. Very pleasant staff, nice ambience but the food was subpar and overpriced. I highly recommend the Cats Meow over Sandbar when it comes to food on Grandville Island.

The crabcakes were soggy, must have been microwaved and were not flavourfull. The sauce and garnishings were nice though.
The feature pasta at $19 had fresh prawns and scallops but the the sauce tasted like something out of a can, no fresh spices, etc. My partner had the cedar plank salmon which was good but nothing special.
I recommend Sandbar for drinks at the Bar and possibly the Wok squid which I have had previously and was quite tasty but avoid if you want a good meal for a good value.
