We've been to this restaurant for Dine Out ever since Dine Out started!! So quite disappointed with the menu this year.
We all had either the Ceasar Salad or the Salad with Shrimp. Both were pretty good. Large portions.
Most of us had the Pork Schnitzel. Rather dry and not much sauce for it. My piece was smaller compared to the other plates, and was very, very dry. My husband had the vegetarian lasagna and he said it was very good. Didn't really look appetizing to me though!!
Mousse was very good and the Creme Caramel was ok. My Mom's CC tasted way better than the one I had.
Food was very inconsistent, eventhough five of us had the same meal, all the plates looked different!!
My daughter had the fish and chips off the kids menu, and I wished I ordered that instead!!
Eventhough it is $15, I don't think it is worth the money to go there for Dine Out. Will go back for the regular menu.
Watch out for the hotel parking. The parking attendant says one thing, and the restaurant says something else!!! Finally worked it out with the hotel front desk!!
Located in the Coast Plaza Hotel on Denman and Comox, a hidden delicious Friday and Saturday night roast beef Buffet. If roast beef primes rib is what you want? You’ve come to the right place. The selection is limited to Cesar salad, raw vegetable dip, baked potatoes, garlic smashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. The price is right and the unlimited prime rib dinner is excellent, a carnivore’s delight. But all beverages and deserts are additional.
My family came to visit Vancouver, and stayed at the hotel above this bistro, where we had breakfast (twice). The bistro offers a nice breakfast buffet and a wide variety of other choices on its menu. The plus is that they use free range eggs, and the toast wasn't drenched in melted butter (like what other diners do). However, we found the hash brown potatoes a bit salty. The servers were polite, but service was very slow. The decor could also use a little bit of an upgrade (maybe more towards an Italian theme, as the flag in the entrance of the bistro suggests?)
Last week a friend recommend this place, they have been going for years and were surprised that I didn't know about the locals discount.
We made reservations being on a friday night and arrived at 6pm. Although there is no view to the outside world, the decor is cozzy. Turns out we had come on a night when they serve an all you can eat Prime Rib buffet as well as there regular menu and there bi-weekly specials. I chose to go with the 3 course meal for 38 dollars. The appy was a madras curry pumpkin soup with scallops, usually I would not get this type of dish but our server told us it was popular. It turned out to be a great choice. Entree I had Rack of Lamb with a rosemary jus, cooked just right thank god (there is nothing worse than getting overcooked lamb) and for dessert I had there home made apple pie. The dessert portion was not only huge it tasted fresh and good as well. My G?F decided to go with the Prime rib buffet and was not dissapointed either, they cook the prime rib to just before Med rare and if you want it done more they and happy to slap it back in the oven. The buffet comes with ceaser, market greens, raw veggies, baked pot, roasted veggie and Yorkshire pudding, with A jus, and its all you can eat! I think she had 3 pounds of prime rib and one carrot sitck haha. Being a coffee fan I had to try their Torrefazione italia coffee which is bottom less for 4$ and did not dissapoint.
at my least favorite point of any meal where we were asked if there would be anything else I mentioned to our server that we were from the neighbourhood and was told about a locals discount. She said great and came right back with the bill which we got 40% off 85 $ turning out to be 54 and change. I was a little shocked how can a hotel restuarant practically give away food like this. so I asked what the discount includes. 7 days a week, 11am till close on everything but booze if you are from vancouver. if you are over 65 its 50% off!
outstanding quality, service and we will be back for sure
I've been to the brasserie three times now - each time food and service where outstanding- as long as your not in a hurry and are happy to wait - the staff are gracious and will do their best to seat you asap and offer you something to drink while you wait. Food is generous and very flavourful - arrive hungry- Pet peeve-
the music was much too loud and as the restaurant emptied (10ish) the sound stayed elevated which made conversation difficult- really it's not a disco and music should be background not forground - We ask several times for the music to be turned down to no avail which meant no desert/after dinner drinks- we went elsewhere! shame really we would have stayed had they obliged their paying patrons.
have been here twice. The first time a couple of weeks ago. The place was packed but they managed to squeeze us in. The restaurant smelled amazing and we asked the front of house to choose a 3 course menu for us. He also suggested a great wine. The best steak tartare I have ever eaten - an amazing coq au vin - and mouth watering tarte tatin. My partner had a salad with goat cheese, entrecote and creme brulee. Including the wine the bill totalled $150. The 2nd time the place was packed again and the service was a bit slow,b ut the front of house again was wonderful and opened our favourite wine and provided glasses for us while we were standing waiting. I will be back as many times as I can afford
