Where can you go in Steveston for supermarket cheese, fruit and roasted nuts served by a bored and lifeless server? Come here. If you're in a good mood, ready to spend money and try something unique....don't come here. I get the concept but if you want to spend that kind of money for a wine/tapas bar go to Salt in Gastown. Kudos to the Buck and Ear for making us feel welcome, knowing their menu and selling it!
I think after this latest adventure I am going to swear off lamb. I have had nothing but bad luck ordering lamb lately. Actually wanted to visit Kisamos Taverna on Sunday as we visited a few months ago and had an excellent meal. Unfortunately they were closed so my dining partner and I kept on walking down the street with Greek food on our minds.
Came upon George's Taverna. Doesn't look like much from outside, in fact looks a little on the sketchy side.
As it turns out the outside looks like a palace compared to what it looks like on the inside. An absolute dump of a place. Welcome to the 70's, maybe 60's and not in a nice , memorable sort of way. This place is about 20 years overdue for a major reno. My dining partner and I had second thoughts about eating here however the table looked clean and it was starting to get on the late side of dinner hour plus we were hungry so we stayed.
Now to the food. I ordered the lamb souvlaki, my dining partner the roast lamb. Both our meals arrived on sort of old , small white plates. There was your usual rice, greek potato and greek salad. The rice was truly unspectacular. The greek potato not nearly as nice as what I have had at many other Greek restaurants. The Greek salad was just sad. As for my lamb souvalki, the toughest pieces of meat I have had in quite sometime. Gave my jaw a real workout. My dining partners roast lamb was also tough and chewy. It was a greyish fair sized piece of meat that looked like it had been boiled and not roasted. Gross.
Our server was pleasant enough but a little inattentive, had to flag her down to have our water glasses filled more than once. There were two other tables to look after.
To sum up, this is one bad Greek Restaurant. I will never be back.
One souvlaki, one roast lamb and two waters plus another pita they charged me $1.25 for including tip, $40.00
Very slow service, small portions, relatively expensive.
We went there as a family (non-chinese). Water came right away. We sat with our menu books closed for close to 10 minutes, so I flagged a waitress, who talking to her coworker, and she thought we already ordered...I said to her, "How could we have ordered if all our menus are still on the table?"
The food took almost 30 minutes to arrive. The sunomono salad, did not come so when we all finished eating, so I asked the waitress when the salad will arrive. Oh, she said they are making it. So then it arrived a short time later.
The I went to play at the cashier, and the lady asked me how the food was. I said it was fine but your service is very slow. She told me that the sunumono salad takes long as they make it individually?!?
The prices in relation to the smaller portions make this restaurant relatively expensive.
Over and out.
What an i I say? When your weiner is bigger than your buns - that is never a bad thing. As for the ice cream it's ok - they are all ok. Even if a player " specializes" in ice cream none of them make it themselves. They all get big dairies like saputo or a agropur to make it in their factories and pack the mix in 20 l bags. The winner had the best recipe not a Specialization. The fries are stupid size and the pizza cemand edible
So I didn't give the Value and "Incredible" rating, because I did have their Chicken Strips and Fries and thought that was pricey (but good)
But their ice cream in really good.....I'll pay that price over McDonald's and Burger King....and it tastes better. Dairy Queen Ice Cream is better of course, but hey, they specialize in Ice Cream.
Their Hot Dogs.....OH MY GOSH.....$1.50 for a hot dog that size (and so delicious) and finally the wiener is actually bigger than the bun. Don't see that much. Go to 7 - Eleven and pay $3 something for a ok sized hot dog. $1.79 will get you a huge bun and puny hot dog at 7 - Eleven.
Ambiance for *DINING* sucks.....well it's a warehouse.
It's good though; if you do go shopping at Costco, don't leave without getting a hot dog and / or ice cream
Girl friend suggested we try this Rmd restaurant after work Monday. Had craving for wonton noodle soup and steamed gai lan with oyster sauce. The shrimp wontons were enormous.. stuffed with lots of shrimp. Almost the size of dim sum steamed beet meatballs. Comes with noodles and soup for $5.75. Terrific value. Quite an extensive menu and very well priced. The gai lan was perfectly done and cut to management size. Would definitively go back again and again.
Went to the bar to grab some food before our show started. It was very quiet when we first arrived and took over 10 minutes for our server to take our order for drinks and food. Within that time 80% of the lounge was filling up with guests. This definitely became a problem with the staff as they were clearly unable to manage the crowd and gather everyones orders. The menu was basic to begin with so we ordered simple nachos and mini burgers. Nachos had no care put in to them. we watched our order sit on the counter for 10 minutes before our server found the time to bring us our food. The food was cold and tasted stale with no flavouring. We don't expect to receive 5 star dining at a casino but we do expect some decent food and service. The food also left us feeling uneasy.
I ordered short latte every day from different stores in that area. Today I drove by this one and ordered a short latte as usual. The server insisted to charge me the price of a tall latte instead of me telling her that other stores charge less for a short latte.
She ignores me when I ask her about the discrepancy politely.
Beware of the imitation seafoods they have. We all know crab is usually imitated but Tilapia but do you know how they are raised? It's disgusting! Also, the other fish they have such as Tuna, Salmon and scallops. They could all be imitated or severely poor cuts of other fish to keep costs down and profits up.
I do not trust this owner, unfortunately people in North America are not as educated...
I do NOT recommend this place.
We came here on a Wednesday for dinner and boy did we regret it. I should have listened to my inner self and not come (we had a previous negative experience eating here). But I thought things would have changed from the last time I was here over a year ago. Also, the fact that my party and I were not coming for the all-you-can-eat, made me cave in and pay the price. Sadly. Sigh...
The service was terrible. First of all, we were not acknowledged for over 10 minutes at the door. And when we were seated, another 15 to 20. Add to that the time it took to bring out the actual food and do the math. Do these people seriously not want business? Cause that's what they're doing. I used to remember the meat being good, but this time was not the case. Dry cold and hard - nothing like when you think of Korean bbq. The portions are small and totally not worth the $$ (not cheap, btw).
I seriously don't know why I returned.
This place has been opened for quite some time, but I am surprised that there is no review here. However, the good reviews it has received elsewhere tempted me to give it a try. I went with four others, and we ordered a variety of dishes to share. Every single dish was delicious, with the grilled octopus, sable fish, and port belly being particularly outstanding. At first, looking at the prices on the menu, I thought portions would be very small, but they were not. All dishes were of decent portion, presentation was beautiful, the ingredients were very fresh, and the cooking creative. Service was good, considering that one waitress seemed very new and was not familiar with the dishes on the menu, but her attitude was excellent. The decor of the place was modern yet simple, so the ambiance was average, but we went there for the food, and we were absolutely delighted to have our tastebuds satisfied to the fullest.
Let me just say this before saying anything further: This kind of lunch set for $15 is a bloody steal. I wanted to say that first before I mess up my review. Haha.
Sura Korean BBQ restaurant is a newly opened Korean restaurant in Richmond Aberdeen Centre with fairly modern decor for a Korean restaurant in Metro Vancouver area. If you are frequent to Korean restaurant scene in town, you should know what I'm trying to say. The most restaurants are passable enough with their food quality, but they are not the kind of places you'd want to take out your girl friend or boy friend to. This one though is comfortably close to that criteria. Everything felt well prepared from seats to grills. Actually I preferred this one's open and modern interior to that of Sura Robson location. It's a definite up-point to me.
Now, to the things that matter more: Their menu, more precisely the food's taste and quality. This is obviously my first time to try this restaurant -- although I've been to Sura Robson quite often -- so probably consciously I went with a safer choice: Sura Lunch Set Course. It's $15. Fifteeeeen. Tuna Tacos at Milest*nes will cost you the same. See my point? For the price, you will have 11 to 12 small-portion Korean dishes. Yes, I tend to agree with the opinion that they are more of samplers than tapas. But calling these dishes simply samplers just doesn't do justice. At the end of the meal, you will feel generously satisfied with the portion. Besides, this is for lunch.
Another good thing of having this set course is that you could enjoy variety that the authentic Korean Cuisine has to offer. Some of my friends from UK are often wondering if there's more to the cuisine culture than BBQ and Soups. This set course is a perfect opportunity where they can experience Korean Cuisine other than having just grilled meats and steamed rice. There are this Spicy Squid Salad, Mung Bean Jelly, crowd-pleaser Grilled Beef Rib-eye, Korean style Sweet & Sour Pork, Grilled Croaker, my all time favourite Herb Pork Belly, and Korean's dinner staples, Soybean Paste Soup.
The quality-wise; Isn't there a saying that the busy restaurant never serves gone-bad food? No time for food materials in Kitchen to go bad. But this is a VERY busy restaurant. At least many lunch times I've passed by. So, probably the finish of their dish-served would be hit-or-miss. Luckily this time my girl friend and I tried, everything was just great.
If you live or work close by and happen to enjoy Korean food, having your lunch at this Korean restaurant in Aberdeen Mall is a no-brainer. There, I said it.
Wow. Really no review since 2007? Guess that could be taken as good or bad. Well this review is good. Today my mom and brother came in to earls just as the afternoon prime lunch time came around. As it's the holidays we anticipated it would extra busy which is it was! But we were greeted at the door and seated immediately. Once we were seated we waited well over 10 minutes to be greeted by our waitress. I saw a few waitress walk right by us but none came to at least ask us if we had been served but know one came. So I took matters into my own hands and walked over to the hostess table and told them a waitress hadn't come by our table. She apologized and told me she would get a waitress to come over right away. Now here is where things take a turn! Soon after a young women who appeared to be a manger came over and apologized and offered us an appetizer on them! She recommended the chili chicken and it was amazing! Our entrees came soon after which were excellent! The manager herself served us and was very attentive. A server came to clear our plates and we asked for our bill. Soon after the manager came over abs told us that our lunch was being taken care of and asked us if we would like dessert or any more drinks! We were so surprised! We thanked her and told her we were full! She apologized once more and told us to have a happy holiday! This us what a great restaurant is made of. Nothing is ever perfect so how the restaurant corrects mistakes is really what should be judged. And it was amazing! Thank you earls! You made our afternoon!
Have ordered from this restaurant numerous times for delivery already, usually during days that are raining. Food usually arrive within 40 minutes. The price and portion size of the food seem average. I usually order around $30 and its enough to fill up two hungry stomachs. Food are quite stable and have a variety to choosefrom. They also give out 2 canes of pop for free with purchase over $25. Overall, great place for some Chinese food!
Decided to try take-out at a local sushi restaurant in Richmond called Gami Sushi. The art of sushi was invented in Japan, but Gami Sushi has developed their own Korean style. The decor is modern, and the food is fresh, tasty, and filling. The portions were just great.The service was excellent, and they answered all my questions, even offering suggestions. Very helpful.
I liked the friendly atmosphere. As soon as I entered the restaurant, staff greeted me with a hearty "Hello." And when parting the premises, a cheerful "Good-bye." Just crazy, Gami Korean sushi 10% off take-out. I must try dining-in.
Eating at Felico's is like going back to visit an old friend after many years. The ambience is friendly, warm and the food is served in healthy, large portions that are good enough to fill larger appetites like mine.
I have been coming here for years, ever since I was little with my family. Prices have kept themselves fairly on the high end but I have no complaint in that sense because I think the prices are justified. But then again, I don't come here very often - I like to reserve it for special occasions. Just so you know, plates on average are between the ranges of $16 - 20. Some items on the menu, like the steak or grilled are more expensive though.
My personal favourites are the rack of lamb chops and the chicken linguine. The lamb pie is also a solid choice.
Service is kind of spotty I must admit, sometimes good and sometimes bad. This time around it was good though. My boyfriend and I came in for lunch, I was kind of skeptical because last time when I came with a group of friends (we were seven) we were largely ignored by our waiter and when our food came, it was cold and the poutine tasted soggy.
I guess Blue Canoe was having a good day because we were served almost instantly. We choose a seat at the patio and the waiter we got was prompt and really helpful. The food this time around was so-so though, except for the tuna ceviche. I loved that it was gluten-free. My boyfriend found his paella to be lacking.
Wouldn't recommend this place for a date or if you are looking for a quiet dinner though. There are TV screens everywhere and people come in for a game.
Given the lukewarm reviews here, I am surprised that this place is still in business. Anyway, I and a friend went there for lunch because it happened to be close by, and I was also intrigued by the rave reviews its washrooms (yes, washrooms) have received.
The decor is very nice, and the washroom is really worth a visit. Service was excellent, and the menu looks very attractive. I had the Prime Rib Yorkies for appetizer. It is really 3 small buns with prime rib meat in the middle. Taste is excellent, and the portion is huge for an appetizer, but the beef is overcooked (I wonder if it is the leftover beef from their prime rib roast the previous evening).
Main course was the Halibut, and it was fine in terms of portion and taste.
I was intrigued by the name of their cheesecake dessert - called "9 Hour Cheesecake". The waiter explained that they baked it for 8 hours then let it cool for 1 hour, hence the name. He also gave an interesting description of the crust, which I have forgotten now, but which made me want to try it, so I ordered it. I found the texture overly thick, and the taste just average.
While there was nothing particularly bad in terms of the overall experience, at the prices they want, this place is too expensive to be worth it. I don't think I'll be back.
We went early on a Friday evening and found the restaurant to be quite crowded. Many of the Patrons were young families. Pho seemed to be the most popular choice, but we ordered Salt and Pepper Sea Food and a Chicken Vermicelli Bowl. Both were nicely presented and hot, and we shared some vermicelli and salad to augment the mixed seafood bowl. The decor is modern and pleasing on the eye.
Came in around 7 pm on October 22. Wow such poor service here it is not even funny, from the front desk girl who was obviously very bored with her put off attitude to the extremely uneducated (about the menu) bus girl or hostess not sure what her title was. I ordered my food the restaurant is practically empty, but my food still managed to come cold and the lobster pasta I ordered was so dry. I asked the quickly passing "bus girl"?? for some extra red sauce for my lobster pasta as it was very dry (that's how I explained it) she brings me back crab steak toppings!! it was white for gods sake, and then rushes off. Anyway ew. I have been here before a few times few years ago and it was good, but now not so much. I did complain about my food to the waitress, told her it was horrible she offered to go back to the cook and have them re-heat it for me...lol
