Takis Taverna1106 Davie Street, Vancouver
No Line-ups Here
By dinnerguests of vancouver (27 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, August 21, 2014 - 8:56pm [Dine in]

We wanted to go to a place without huge line-ups. This was the place.
We ordered the Calamari entree with rice, potatoes, salad, and cooked vegetables. We were surprised that the food looked and tasted like it had been around for days. The calamari had unrecognizable tenderness with a slight bitterness that we all tasted. The potato wedges were shrunken, flexible, and dry around the edges. The carrots were brown where the scraping was not fully complete. The texture of the green beans appeared canned. The salad was warm. We will seek fresher food at a different place next time.

Nearly Neil was great!

Excellent food, service and entertainment. A great time had by all. The service was excellent and our server had a great sense of humor. We started with some thin crust pizzas that had a perfect crust and so flavourful. The rest of our appies and entrees were very good as well and then for dessert... Cannoli! To die for. Nearly Neil put on a great performance for the full house and we had a fun time on the dance floor. Can't wait to see more shows here- it is a great venue!

Mexicali4424 Dunbar Street, Vancouver
Cheap and quick
By autwrn of Vancouver (6 Reviews)

Mexicali is a fast food Mexican restaurant, so it offers what you would expect from such a place: affordable prices, basic yet quick service (no waiters), and a simple ambiance. The crowd is usually a mix of young people and families, which can be a bit noisy. I ordered a regular quesadilla, chips with salsa, and a slushy mexican limonada as a drink. It was all good, especially for the prices I paid (almost everything on the menu is less than $10). The quesadilla was awesome, especially with the sour cream and the slushy Mexican Limonada was very refreshing for the day.

What Happened??
By Silent Typewriter of Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, August 11, 2014 - 2:32pm [Take-out]

Been here two previous times and both times, I was super impressed which is why I was so surprised by what I received today when I ordered take out.

FOOD:
As with the two previous times, I ordered the Masago de Creamy Spaghetti but this time, it was so different from what I had before. First thing I noticed was that they no longer used the squid rings for the dish. Instead, they use only the bottom part of the squid (the legs) for the dish. Next, I noticed that the sauce was more watery than creamy. In fact, it was so watery that it couldn't coat the pasta at all. When I spooned some onto the pasta, it would just run all the way back down to the bottom of the container. Another thing I noticed with my order today was that it was super salty. Now, I like to eat fairly salty but even this was too salty for me. I had to keep drinking water to help abate the thirst.

SERVICE:
It was prompt. I came in, told them I ordered take out and they gave me my bill. I paid and they gave me the food and I was on my way.

VALUE:
Now, as I recall, even when I ordered the Masago de Creamy Spaghetti as take-out on a previous occasion, it came with a side salad. This time, there was no side salad but the price was still the same. So really, they upped the price by cutting back what they give you.

Quite a disappointment today, especially since they seem to consistently get good reviews right now. Hopefully, it was just an off day. If not, I hope they'd improve so I can return again in the future.

Akira Sushi1069 Denman Street, Vancouver
Service needs to improve!
By autwrn of Vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, August 10, 2014 - 8:44am [Dine in]

There are some reviews that reiterate the poor service of this place but I thought that since they were dated, this would not be the case. Akira is in Denman, where there are tons of other restaurants that can give them a run for their money. If they don’t want to lose clientele, they need to up their game!

Other than that, there are really no other reasons why not to come back. For one, prices are affordable. While the sushi lacked taste, the black rice didn’t disappoint! I would have given it a higher rating had it not been for the service. While the service is usually fast, the waitresses can be unfriendly, to put it nicely.

Dockside Restaurant1253 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Nice View, Great Patio
By Triedit of Metro Vancouver (37 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, August 10, 2014 - 7:23am [Dine in]

I have had lunch (3x) and dinner once here. The lunches were all very good, delicious seafood appetizers had us dining on a series of just appetizers the first two times. The third time we had burgers and they were just the way I like them, juicy, fresh toppings with decent fries. Recently we dropped by for dinner and almost left after looking at the menu, we were out for a casual meal, not expensive dining ( the lounge was closed which it seems to be every time I have been there), but the menu was very expensive and none of my favourites were on it.

Turns out you can order from the lunch/lounge menu although we had to be leaving to get that offered. We ended up having burgers because none of the usual delicious appetizers remain on the menu. Once again the burgers were just right so we enjoyed them. The caeser side salad I had was drowning in dressing, tasty but it made it too soggy and all I could taste was dressing.

The lovely patio was full and had a very long wait so we were seated inside which was about 3/4 empty. Service was good. Overall, it was okay but expensive restaurants need to always be on top of the food quality including the salads.

White Spot1476 Kingsway, Vancouver
A wrinkle in time
By jsmoore of Vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, August 9, 2014 - 8:44pm [Dine in]

For anyone that has lived in BC, White Spot is a classic. I, like most people, have fond memories of it from my childhood, as it was THE family restaurant. Which kid did not want a Pirate Pack? Anyways, back to the point, I hadn't been to a White Spot location for a while so I decided to revisit their Kingsway location.

I had the mediterranean chicken burger and it was alright, nothing WOW. Looking back, I should’ve ordered the legendary with its triple O or something! I don’t know if I was expecting too much but even their fries were a bit damp...The service was a little slow but I’ll give it to them this time because it was sort of packed when I was there. I'll have to come again to see if their food has worsened or not.

Go for the tea
By dianalee of Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, August 8, 2014 - 9:09am [Dine in]

Good place for bubble tea, although it gets crazy packed sometimes! Especially during lunch time...I usually just go to BBT for a quick snack (I’m crazy about their spicy dumplings), but the service is always a disappointment. It is usually a struggle to get the staff to acknowledge you, and then, once they do, to get your order placed. As for the way they treat you, geez, its usually borderline rude. I keep going back though for their bubble tea. The passion fruit is delicious (and strong!), and the Taro is a classic. The teas are pretty sweet, especially the passion fruit, but one of the best in Vancouver.

Wallflower, The2420 Main Street, Vancouver
Cool and hip
By eileenf of Olympia, Washington (4 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 7:36am [Dine in]

The Wallflower is quite a unique restaurant because it has such an artsy, hip look. The little details make the place fun (coffee is served in random mugs). They also play very good music (it is LOUD, but to be expected from the dark look of the restaurant). As for the food, it is a delight. The pesto chicken wrap with fries was absolutely tasty and not greasy. The spinach salad was also highly enjoyable; it came with yummy goat cheese and tofu.

I am not vegan but it was a nice surprise to see so many vegan dishes on the menu, so if you are vegan, this is definitely the place to come to. One thing you should take a note of is that they only accept cash or credit, not debit. Kind of weird.

I'm not sure what's up with the reviews, but we had a great time at Kobe. There was a ton of food, it was fresh and delicious and the show was killer. Yes, it is a bit on the pricey side, but so are all the restaurants surrounding Kobe. Definitely a special occasion place, but the show makes it entirely worth while.
