We learned of this restaurant through Dine Out Vancouver. All the menu offerings looked tempting, so we booked. Later we discovered some negative reviews on this website and had second thoughts.It was Sat. night and not much chance of getting anything else on short notice so we chanced it. we had our fingers crossed on that long drive from New West. and were very pleased to find we worried for nothing.
I had lobster, done to perfection, and my wife had a delicious (and also done to perfection) salmon wellington.
The service left nothing to be desired, we didn't have to wait long between courses, and plates were cleared away within minutes of our being done with them. The servers were friendly and efficient,and a window seat was a bonus,even though it was dark out.
All and all a pleasant expierience and well worth the drive.
My mother usually goes to costco...to shop. But when I go with her, we sometimes go eat at the Costco Restuarant. The food is cheap, but great at the end of the day when you are tired and hungry...which is usually me. The hot dogs are oily, but what hot dogs aren't? The hot dog combo is $1.50 for a long hot dog and a refillable drink.
There are other great combos, like the pizzas.
My dad is a very picky eater. And the fact that he used to go the Alleluia every morning to eat breakfast will suprise you. Inside, it is a clean and comfy place. The parking lot is usually full because there is so many people going there. Especially on Saturday nights. My favourite food there is the baked minced beef spaghetti. And yes, it is baked. The drinks there are okay, but if you live in Richmond, you should definately try it out.
If you are a person with a large appetite, you should go to Aji Taro. They offer a variety of Japenese food for a great price, if you're going to take the all you can eat side.
It used to be really disgusting, but that was 6 years ago. The bathrooms now are not AS dirty as the last time I ate there.
Try it again.
we went here as a party of 6, i like the seating here as there are lots of booths and the dining is quite private. We sat down ordered from the menu as all you can eat. Food was very good, and came out quick. There was no service to speak of as there was no organization. All the service staff were doing the food running, with no one in charge of looking after the tables. Very dis organized, as we did not have a waiter, just all these food runners that are on the way back to the kitchen, that you would yell out and hope they would stop to service your table.
Anyways, it is what it is. I actually had a pretty good meal, besides the lack of service, there was a diner at the next table that was having a spirited conversation with his dinning companions. He was literally yelling at the top of his lungs speaking his native language(mandarin) having a great time. Pretty annoying for the rest of us around his table having to listen to it while eating. Not the restaurants fault, just takes away from the experience. when we were done, we had to ask at least 5 times for the bill from different servers on their way back to the kitchen, and leave the table full of dirty dishes and still boiling hot pot, because there was no one that wanted to service our table,
Anyways, i left the appropriate tip for the level of service experienced here, we'll have a better meal sometime else, somewhere else. pity, i felt the food was pretty good.
I went here for the dine out vancouver menu. the seafood chowder was ok.. then i ordered the ribs and prawns for my entre and the ribs were sooo fatty that i only had a bite or two and the prawns had no flavour at all.. for dessert i had the creme brule and the top of it wasn't even crispy... so food was not good at all. and on top of that, the service was sooo slow.. we were the only table in there so they had no excuse.. i would not go back to this restaurant.
We go to the south terminal often, which is right across from the Flying Beaver. The last time we were there a couple of years ago was a bad experience so we hadn't been frequenting it.
However, we were at the main airport and were going to the south terminal and had 1 1/2 hours to kill. We thought we would give this place another chance as it is close and does have a wonderful view.
From the moment we walked in, we did not get a good impression. The music was to loud to talk comfortably. The place needed a good clean. The tables were dirty.
We selected a table but their was a note saying something like "you can sit here, but if people we like stop by you will be asked to move". Why not put a reserved sign on it? We moved on, found another table and sat down. The waitress did come over promptly to get our drink order When I only wanted water, her attitude was disdainful. However, I got the water when the others got their drinks.
We had decided to order the wings special. Oh boy, the rules. First we each had to have a real drink, water was not acceptable. OK, I ordered a beer and gave it to my husband. My husband ordered 12 hot wings, which was ok. But my Grandmother and I each ordered 6. Not acceptable, the minimum was 10. Again, ok, we ordered 10 each. They came covered in goop and were not very good. We each ate a couple but couldn't continue as the sauce was overpowering. We did eat the decent yam fries.
Up until this point we took the rules in stride. But when we asked the waitress to wrap the wings up so we could take them home, she informs us we can only take a maximum of 7 wings with us. When I explained we could not eat them all and didn't want to order that many anyways, she said "I explained you had to order 10". Yes, she did, but she did not explain we would have to eat the all of them. She informed us she would pack up 7 and throw the extras away, or we could eat them. At this point I snapped "Who makes these ridiculous *)(*& rules?". She stomped off and refused to come back.
So I asked to speak to the manager. He eventually came over and started chewing me out for swearing at the waitress. I apologized and tried to explain our situation, and that all I wanted was to take the leftovers home but he just kept explaining the rules to us over and over. Finally I said there is no point in continuing this conversation, could we please have our bill so we could leave. He then continued to talk, but he became angry because I cut him off. He just wouldn't go away.
It's ridiculous really, we are good customers, pleasant, take situations as they occur and tip well. All we ask is that we get treated fairly and with respect. I understand they need to have rules surrounding their specials, but come on, don't make me order more food than I want then tell me I either have to eat them or throw them out, but still have to pay for them.
Well, the best way to vote is by not bothering to go back and you can be sure that is what we will do.
