we were underdressed for this restaurant, but they never let on!

At a friend's recommendation, I brought three Japanese friends out of the rain for a good dinner earlier this week. We had been out touring all day and I felt a bit embarassed as we entered, a little wet and somewhat under-dressed (most of the clientele were in business attire that evening, and we in shorts and polo shirts).

And yet, not once did the staff make us feel self-conscious. In fact, we were treated to a deliciously wonderful dinner. Yes, it's on the expensive side, but it is very much worth it.

I talked the chef into allowing me to have the tomato puree from his tasting course (as I didn't want the entire course). Never have I had a tomato soup quite like that.

And when I asked after something special yet non-alcoholic for my friends, the bartender threw together a delicious mixture of fruit juices that had them singing his praises and asking me to get a recipe.

I also had a tagine, made with chick peas and figs, and frankly, I was tempted to ask after the recipe for that, too. Delicious!

One of the best in Vancouver.

The Rain City Grill is small and cozy almost cramped but fantastic in every other way. The service is top notch and very professional. The location is perfect for the west end with a great view to the beach. The wine selection great and the staff knows their stuff in this department. Food is some of the very best you will have anyplace in Vancouver!

I have done Breakfast, Lunch and dinner at this place and it's all fantastic. The prices are very fair and not sky high like they could be. It's nice to find something of this quality without the silly prices that scare away all but the rich. I think this is an often overlooked gem in Vancouver that may become your favorite if you give it a try.

Next time your going out give this place a call you won't be disappointed.

DOV - worth it!

Arrived to a crowded restaurant but were quickly seated. Our server came and was very attentive despite the full tables. We tried the duck broth and the tartare, both were good, but the tartare stood out more. Had the Lamb and Salmon for entrees, both were well cooked, but don't expect an actual cut of lamb (I think it is a confit of lamb shoulder?) more like a formed "patty". The desserts we tried were both amazing (I had the Pot de creme and he had the textured chocolate cake). Very good. Overall, well worth the visit. Might come back for a romantic dinner again.
