Been there for lunch and dinner. Both times I had a mediocre experience. Food selection was limited and the soup was a little too salty. The bread was a little dry - maybe a day old. It's a nice hang out place to watch their big screens with your buddies and I wouldn't suggest it if you're looking for good food. Value I rated poor because for what they charge and the quality of the food provided, you're not really paying for the food, you're paying mostly their rent.
I went to the St. Regis Bar & Grill with a friend on July 16, 2013, and we were both quite disappointed. Tried the nachos ($16 + $4 for beef and $4 more for guacamole!) and what a disaster...basically a pile of nacho chips with a dribble of solidified cheese on the bottom, some token olives, and small pieces of rubber that we were later told were the "beef". Dry and forgettable. We ate maybe 20% of it. A total rip-off (where is Gordon Ramsey when you need him?)
Still hungry, we took a chance on the beef dip ($13) and it was edible, but just barely.
Service was decent, but even the waitress warned us about the certain items on the menu (the side soup with the beef dip looked suspiciously like Campbell's Chicken & Sausage Gumbo)...not a good sign.
A nice room, but the menu items we tried ranged from terrible to passable and are way overpriced.
You've been warned, folks
We came by here for dinner on a Saturday night. We had a party of 8 with reservations. Ok, first off, our Server was absolutely horrible. The girl was no where to be seen most of the night. I came in late, about a half hour after everyone had gotten there, and they didn't even have their drinks ordered yet. And that would be a theme the entire night. We would have empty glasses on our table, with no service whatsoever. We had to order our drinks midway before finished, and we might have it come when we were done. And, I had a good look at what was going on. First off, all the Servers were off in the Corner chatting, or infront of the bar chatting with the bar tenders. The Bar tenders, there were 2 of them working, and, for how busy that night way, I really can't see how they couldn't keep up. The Servers only served the table they served and none others, so, even by waving down another Server, the response was "Let me get your Server", and she never came. Funny thing was, I counted 6 Servers on the floor that night, and, all of them, I couldn't see where they went off to at all.
Food, was the worst Bar food I've ever had. I ordered a plate of Nachos with Chicken, and barely touched it. And, I figured it out afterwards, it was really dry. As if someone had left it under the hot lamp for waaaay too long. And, the funny thing was, everyone else complained that the food was really dry too. My friend ordered the Beef Dip, and all the sauce was gone with the first half of the Sandwich. Which he couldn't even ask for more because our Server was no where to be found.
The food that was good, there was the Chicken Burger and the Salmon. No complaints there. The Fries were crispy too, I had to mention that because I'm not sure they can even get that right.
I wouldn't recommend this bar to anyone. Food was horrible for the most part. Service was horrible. Ambiance was really night. Lots of TVs everywhere, and was easy to navigate. But, what good is a bar where you can't order drinks? I won't be going back to this place if I had a choice. Nope, not interested at all.
My buddy and I were planning to go to Anduccis Restaurant. When we clled we found out that Anduccis was gone but a new bar and grill had taken it's place. The St Regis didn't disappoint. The place was PACKED... loud and busy with activity. The plates of food that were streaming by looked and smelled fantastic. I ordered a huge plate of mussels and my buddy ordered the pasta with chorizo. They were both awesome! I couldn't believe the price either. 4 drinks and 2 entres cost less than $50. I can't wait to go back. The service was excellent considering the amount of people who were in the joint. A fun place to dine.
We were a group of 12 for a work lunch and what a disappointment! None of us will be returning. How is it possible that there are positive reviews for this place?!
When the food finally arrived, it was so not worth the wait. The cobb salad was a mix of wilted spinach, romaine and baby greens with brown edges, bacon bits were dry and hard, hard boiled egg was overcooked with a greyish hue to the egg yolk, grilled chicken was dry, cold and tasteless, except for the grill marks, which tasted like charcoal - clearly the grill had not been cleaned in ages, crumbled blue cheese was suspect. The steak sandwich isn't a sandwich. It is a small steak on a potato cake surrounded by fries! The steak was not cooked to order even though the servers ask you for your preference. Consensus around the table was that the food was generally terrible.
We were seated at least 20 minutes before the servers took our order. Granted, it was lunch hour, but hello people! It's lunch hour and this is a restaurant in downtown Vancouver serving, guess what...lunch! Why so unprepared??? We arrived before the place filled up but our orders were taken well after all the tables that arrived after us. The food did not arrive until at least 30mins after placing our orders. In fact, it took so long that when the server brought out the first 2 dishes, he actually asked if there was anyone else he missed, i.e. he thought the rest of us (10 people) had finished eating and he was serving the last 2 dishes. Shocking! The food came out in a haphazardly. The servers were totally disorganized - did not know who ordered what, made mistakes, mixed up orders and brought out dishes that were never ordered. One of us didn't even receive his lunch. A colleague had ordered steak and the server brought him a steak sandwich after everyone else had been served. The server tried to convince my colleague to take the steak sandwich by saying the steak will take a long time and did not offer to comp the meal to make up for the mistake. When the steak finally arrived, the rest of us were just finishing our lunches and the restaurant was empty except for our table.
The prices are actually reasonable - if you get what you ordered within a reasonable time frame and if the food was edible. But since that did not happen, the value is poor.
Classic pub style with big screen tvs. This could be a fun place to meet friends, have a drink and some snacks. But ambiance doesn't mean much when food and service are so bad. The people who run this place have a lot to learn about the food service industry.
Ive heard some people have not liked the food but ive been there a few times and a gangster pizza and a bigga beer is really tasty, filling, and affordable. Seems to get busy especially for games and fights so they must be doing something right.
Key point is that the "Bigga beer" is one of the most affordable drinks you will get down town.
I like it and enjoy going there
