Thai Son Vietnamese373 E. Broadway, Vancouver
Food is great but super bad service
By jasonpal of Surrey , BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, September 5, 2017 - 6:55am [Dine in]

I was dining here with my friends the other day. Food was ok. However, their service was so bad. My friend wanted to ordered drip ice coffee. I had helped him to put the order. The server (older lady) had mistakenly tried to make two. I had explicitly told her its only one order. But said to me she already have "pressed" meaning she already have activated. Clearly, she hasn't poured hot water in the coffee drip cup yet. In the end, she ended up making two drip ice coffee and charged me for the second when clearly she made a mistake on the order. I was NOT happy about that. I will not set foot at this location for Thai Son ever again!

Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria1380 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Soggy
By Norman of Vancouver East (80 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 3, 2017 - 7:25am [Dine in]

I have eaten here twice, so I know it wasn't an off day. The pizza crust is soggy, and that's not
"Neapolitan" by any stretch. I have eaten pizza all over Italy, and I never had a soggy crust. I think it may be because their sauce is watery. The sauce isn't very tangy either, so maybe it should have a rethink. Anyway, if you are going to claim to be Neapolitan you should try to be authentic. Excellent and attentive service, though.

Takis Taverna1106 Davie Street, Vancouver
Takis disappointed on consistency
By Scott Wallace of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, August 28, 2017 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

This is an update of a third visit for consistency checking, and for a new meal of calamari.

Updating an earlier review here and on my private food blog (don't give the address to restaurants...but currently 5, 923 followers).

Initially, I had given them a great review. Really great. But I always suprise with another visit and check for consistency.

In the interest of hoping the feedback is helpful, and not unreasonable.

Very disappointed.

1. The grilled calamari which was highly recommended was such a small portion I really couldn't believe. Plus too salty. Maybe the latter is personal preference, but my husband found it very salty. Haven't tried the fried calamari but he won't go back.

2. THe lamb. I thought it was oddly oily (a huge pool of oil again, dripped outside of the bag and I still had a quarter inch of it sitting in the take-out container. And I weighed it...the bone and the fat were 65% of the meat. The only edible meat, which was delicious, was approximately 1/3 of the what I paid for! This was a seriously horrible piece of lamb.

Felt really bad and hope my initial review is not misleading complementary.

I don't know if I can try it again but we are definitely back to Stephos one more time to compare and I should definitely give Takis another chance.

One positive note, they were very generous in offering an ouzo while we waited for the takeout (which is always quite speedy...but they're not that busy so speed is not surprising).

Fish Counter, The3825 Main Street, Vancouver
Bad Fish and Chips
By Basilseal of North Vancouver District (32 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, August 13, 2017 - 3:45pm [Dine in]

I like fish and chips, but this was bad. The fish (cod) was over battered and over cooked and it had a burnt greasy taste. The chips were just ok as was the coleslaw. If you want good fish and chips try Montgomery's (Lonsdale Quay) or Go Fish (Granville Island).
I also took a look at the fresh fish on display; in my opinion the fish available at your local Save On Foods is much better, as the fish here looked liked it had been sitting around too long.

Mezbaan3499 Kingsway, Vancouver
A solid restaurant.
By vancouverpiggie of burnaby (54 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, August 10, 2017 - 11:52am [Dine in]

I've dined here twice, both for the dinner buffets.

Once was the regular dinner priced - I think 14.99 - and the other was their Tuesday all day buffet special price of 7.99.

This place isn't big and for the regular price, I probably wouldn't come here that often when compared to other indian buffet joints around the GVRD because of the small selection (Around 7 main dishes + 2-3 salad dishes).

But at 7.99 Tuesday special, it's a bargain if you're craving for some fast, filling indian food. However, Tuesday selection I do have to say you get what you pay for. The salad bar and some of the mains are nearly empty and refilled very slowly.

Taste-wise, it's on the lighter side. Not too oily, not too salty but at times, lacking in spices too. The raita and coconut rice dessert are very watered down though during the Tuesday buffet last time I had ate it.

This place has freshly prepared naan brought right to your table if you'd like.

Utensils and plates are all very clean. Bathroom is clean.

The best mains were the fish and patak paneers. Butter chicken and tandoori chicken have very little flavor. Although this place advertises goat curry, I have not seen any in all of my visits in the buffet.

I would return, but only for the Tuesday specials.

Food great - service lacking.
By AshleyWallison of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, August 2, 2017 - 5:51pm [Dine in]

I'm giving 1 star not because of the food but because of the service. One young Asian lady (20-30 years old) with above the shoulder hair that is streaked brown is the rudest employee I've ever come across. She speaks badly about customers in front of them in another language, doesn't offer certain tables the free rice, soup, and egg roll (she brings them to other tables without being asked), and rolls her eyes at customers behind their backs. I love the food here but after multiple incidents with her I doubt I will be back.

Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood Pub3728 Clark Drive, Vancouver
Such a great venue,such horrible service and sub-par food
By shutupandeat of Vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, July 28, 2017 - 9:23am [Dine in]

Sports teams and leagues, if you're looking for a post-game watering hole... The Cedar Cottage is not the pub.
Our small league of Thursday night ball players experienced the go-around all season (14 weeks) from Cedar Cottage Pub (CCP).

From promised team specials and food discounts that did not happen. This entire season and experience was just frustrating for the customer. Week after week we had our post game drinks and dinner and week after week we had to remind the server that our ball team (we have uniforms) were to get food discounts as promised by their manager. "Sorry, but your group is too small for a discount" to "Sorry, but your group is too big for a discount tonight". What a joke.
We gave the CCP 1 week's notice that our League Wrap-up would be happening and if they could reserve tables for 50 people and provide us dinner specials. We followed up the day before and was promised they were ready for us.
We arrived Thursday night (our usual night) and 1) they did not have our reservation or our table ready; 2) they did not have menu specials for us; 3) our group was too large for a discount; 4) they were short-staffed and were not able to serve us in a timely manner.

Summary
If you have a fun night planned and are looking for a place to go with friends. Give CCP a pass. This is not your friendly neighbourhood pub.

I haven't been to this restaurant yet , I have passed by many times and have wanted to try this restaurant.
I have the take out menu and some of the things I picked out are a favorite.
I haven't tried any of these dishes , I will soon find out if the food is really that good.

Some of the reviews I read about this place aren't bad
to each their own.
I do know this restaurant has been in the Marpole area for a long long time .

There are some of the small chinese restaurants that are quite good .
So many chinese restaurants that I have not tried yet and will try .

Sushi Ville2068 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Best sushi in Vancouver and best value for your buck
By sparadis of Chilliwack, BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, July 17, 2017 - 9:37am [Dine in]

Great sushi, great value for your buck. You can get a Bento Box for around $12 and you leave completely full and with food leftover. It's not just cheap, it's super tasty and they are really good with food presentation.The service is okay, it depends on the night/day and there can sometimes be a language barrier with some of the staff. Other than that, if you're looking for tasty sushi, at a reasonable price and very well presented, this is the place to go to!

Stepho's is one of our go-to for Vancouver restaurants. Whenever we make the trek from Chilliwack to downtown for the weekend, we stop and eat there for at least one dinner. It's delicious Greek food and the plates are HUGE. The restaurant is super cute and it can get pretty busy. Make sure to show up early as they do not take reservations.

I have no complaints with the service , ambiance or value, but Greek food should have more flavour. I think I'll send them a bag of rosemary and suggest they use it for the potatoes at least. Everything was well cooked and nicely presented, but just bland. I'm used to the roasted potatoes at Greek restaurants being one of the highlights. These were just roasted potatoes. The tzatziki was pretty bland also.

Rude and indifferent staff
By cigar06 of vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, June 19, 2017 - 8:18pm [Dine in]

The soup and some of the lunch dishes are reasonable. Some of the staff at the deli are positively rude. I can't believe an owner would abdicate his customer service to employees with horrible attitude. The staff just don't care! I ordered some baklava. Three signs indicated "regular, rolls and chocolate. I asked for rolls. The grumpy little old woman scowled and said they were not rolls they were something else (incomprehensible). She was brimming with hostility. Why put the signs if the staff don't know what they are called. Another deli server was clearly upset that serving me was interfering with her other duties!! Customer service LAST!!!

This could be a good place but they need to replace the staff.

Food is expensive. Can feed several for the price of one person. Place is popular for weddings. Don't park where it says residents only, or you'll get towed. The restaurant is overrated. It's too pretentious. Just a reminder not to park in the residents area or you'll get ticketed.

Aussie Pie GuyWest Georgia St & Hamilton St, Vancouver
More like a meat stew instead of a meat pie
By Ieatmygreens of West Vancouver, (5 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, June 17, 2017 - 12:39am [Dine in]

I've bought pies each chance that I see the truck.
Over the past four or five years I've tried all but the salmon pie.
I skip the Skippy roo pie now.
I don't see another reason to buy a veggies pie again if they have any type of beef pie.
And the coast pie...June 2017 was the Aussie pie. But it was more of an Aussie stew in a paper bag.
I don't know what's happening to his product.. Maybe because it's gluten free..Maybe they were from the day before and heated fsrcto long over and over again. Maybe they were frozen at one time.
But after one bite...All the contents ozzed out of the top sides this collapsing the pie into a stew. I ended up with a bag full of gravy.
The price has not gone up..So like happens a lot.. The quality goes down.
Worse yet...When I confronted him.. He asked me if I enjoyed​ it.. No..No I didn't..And I didn't like his dismissive attitude. I hate feeling like I've been screwed over.

Girls eve at Sandbar

Submitted Tuesday, June 13, 2017 - 10:45am [Dine in]

We were thinking about a girls night out and Sandbar appeared to be the perfect choice! Danielle was so pleasant and attentive, our glasses were never empty. Each dish was worth to try and well presented. For starter we shared California roll and it was delicious! We also ordered Scallop & Prawn Jambalaya and Kung Pao Chichen Rice Bowl which were both nice to see and tantalizing to taste. The Scallop and Prawn Jambalaya was flavoured but not overly spicy.
The atmosphere and interior are unique, live music and dance floor after dinner.
We definitely recommend Sandbar!!

My friend Ruby and I went to Bisto Pastis today at 18:30pm
I ordered the daily soup and bouillabaisse de pastis. As my friend, Ruby, she ordered the soupe à l`oignon and sole meunière.
The food was really good! Especially, I loved the taste of the bouillabaisse de pastis and the side dish was astonishing.
The host greeted us kindly with smile and the server introduced the menu patiently also gave us suggestions.
The background music was beautiful with proper volume. Also, the light and indoor decoration was warm-hearted.
This was the first time we tried French restaurant and it was really nice.
Last but not least, the dessert, Lemon tart was awesome and Ruby ordered the melt chocolate she loved it.
I would definitely visit Bistro Pastis again in the future.

The entrance is clean and the way I stepped in the host comes to me immediately.
They asked if I have take reservation and then send me to my seat.
The server that help our order is very gently and can feel his passion, he introduce the menu and beverage very attentive and suggest their popular meal,
The whole service is out of my expectation, I didn't expect this all.
Not only the service but the food quality also.
The portion and taste is super excellent.
My order is 7 oz Fillet add shrimp and scallop oscar,
The steak taste really good, easy to bite and not rough,
the seafood let me excited also, make me feel that the meal deserve that price,
though is not cheap but it really worth to taste these food.
The dessert is delicious too, my dessert is mini fudge brownie, the brownie is warm and with cream and ice cream, the mix taste is great.
I think I will return back to celebrate someday next time.

Absolutely Disgraceful!! Raw Salmon, Could have been Dangerous!!Do Not Order From this Restaurant! !
By Nancy7 of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 9:41pm [Delivery]

Horrible experience, the first time my boyfriend ordered maple glazed salmon and they sent him the meal with just a hint of maple sauce  so it ws dry and no good to eat and when he called someone claiming he was the manager argued with him for about 10 minutes unwilling to give him a credit because the meal was not enjoyable.  Then he had to argue for him to give him the gst back. Second time it was fine then we ordered the same thing again and his salmon was raw and he took a bite out of it which could have been dangerous. They tell him they'll send him another one, so he sends the raw salmon back with the driver to prove his case and then don't include the garlic bread. When he asks the skip the dishes guy he says he doesn't control that.When he calls back the restaurant, they don't answer and I call from my cell phone they answer right away. Then my boy friend tells them how disappointed with them and they don't care, they just apologize and want to get off the phone. The funny thing is the two of us order very frequently atleast a couple times a month and this is  how they treat us. I would recommend not to order from this horribly run establishment that do not care if they serve undercooked meat and do nothing to try to satisfy thier customers!
