Moon Underwater Pub And Brewery, The350 Bay Street, Victoria
Service So Slow And Unremarkable It Really Makes One Wonder
Submitted Sunday, March 6, 2011 - 11:40am [Dine in]

Why? This place is obviously a family run business. Sorry to say but what appears to be Mom and Dad have so little personality you have to wonder why they got into business in the first place.

I don't want to make this too personal but it really was a glaring part of my experience at "The Wet Moon" on Friday night. These people did not chat with customers, at least my table of seven. They didn't even try.
They were mechanical in their performance.

You order up at the bar there is no table service. Sure the place was packed on Friday night perhaps because of a good review in the TC recently but slow, my goodness. I ordered a dozen chicken wings at ten bucks. I swear someone was out back slaughtering the chicken, plucking the feathers one by one and then slicing and dicing. The chicken wings took forever.

Everything at our table was stutter delivered. One persons meal arrived then maybe five, ten , fifteen minutes later someone else's, etc. Not once did Mom or Dad come by and say anything to us. When a meal was ready they simply plopped it down in front of the person who had ordered it, about an hour ago up at the bar. To me this is just unacceptable. If you want people to return engage with your customers. Talk to them, kibitz a little, make it seem like you want their business and appreciate it.

Trust me I could of purchased wings at Costco for less and meatier. While the wings were okay some of them seemed to be of the weight loss variety. Skin and bones with a little sauce.

The beer was fine, nothing special.

I may give them another chance but I sure hope they read my review and accept a little constructive criticism.
I am not hard to please , just want a little appreciation from places where I spend my money.

Tropika1128 Robson Street, Vancouver
Great Christmas Day Lunch
Submitted Tuesday, January 4, 2011 - 6:15pm [Dine in]

Came to Tropika Christmas Day with a friend around 2pm and enjoyed a very tasty lunch.
Ordered the Indonesian Spring Rolls to start and really didn't enjoy them. The rolls were different from what I expected. They were piping hot and the outside of the roll was rolled in something sort of strange perhaps crushed peanuts. After the rolls everything was uphill.

Enjoyed a very delicious Gado Gado salad. A large helping of cucumber , tofu, and lettuce topped with an extremely generous and tasty peanut sauce. What a way to start the meal.

We then ordered a very nice beef and curry dish. The temperature of the dish was just right as was the spice, just the right amount of heat. The dish was rich and creamy and was just delightful on top of a nicely done bowl of rice. Also enjoyed a noodle dish with some seafood and tofu, again very well done.

My dining partner and I were pretty much stuffed like a Christmas turkey by the time we polished everything off.

The service was friendly and efficient. Everything presented in a reasonable amount of time including our drinks.

My one little quibble, they didn't take debit, what is with that? Cash or credit only.

Not as Impressed As I Thought I Would Be
Submitted Monday, November 1, 2010 - 4:46pm [Dine in]

After hearing plenty about this place I had to finally try them out at their swanky new location. I popped by Saturday for a quick lunch after a look over the menu. I was actually expecting higher prices but they were fairly reasonable, pizzas around 13 bucks, pasta dishes for around 13/14 dollars but more on that later.

I was dining alone and quickly got a seat by the window from the friendly hostess. My waitress arrived shortly after I sat down with a menu and to take my drink order. I asked about a beer that I never tried and she offered to give me a sample. As it turns out the beer was not to my liking so I ordered a brew that I knew.

While waiting for my beer to arrive another server brought by some crusty bread and a small dish of olives. The olives were very nice, the bread not so much. The bread was very crusty, a thick , chewy almost hard crust to it that made my teeth hurt. I really think they should review the bread they are serving.

I ordered the gnocchi and when it arrived it really wasn't anything I expected. First off, it seemed like a very small portion. The gnocchi came in a sort of spinach gravy type thing that was okay but not really what I had in mind. The gnocchi was tasty enough, I ate it but would of preferred a tomato based sauce, my bad for ordering the wrong thing.

This was a busy place for lunch on a Saturday. I had a feeling my waitress was slammed with customers as she took much too long to bring me things like the bill. Wasn't impressed with the service.
I also wasn't really impressed with the table set up. I was sitting alone for lunch but halfway through my meal a young couple arrived at the table next to me and you are literally sitting right with them, just inches away. This is really not my cup of tea. I would of loved to of finished my lunch in my own little space but what can you do, that is the set up of this restaurant.

The new building Zambri's is in is quite impressive, a beautiful space. As for Zambri's itself I found the new space nothing special at all, although I look forward to a warm summer afternoon in July enjoying lunch and a bottle of wine on their patio that looks onto Yates.

Although not what I really expected I will be back.

Real Taste of India768 Fort Street, Victoria
If this restaurant doesn't succeed then the location is jinxed
Submitted Thursday, October 28, 2010 - 4:07pm [Dine in]

For the past couple of years we have seen this spot as a Korean BBQ, then some sort of Hawaiian type thing that lasted a few months and now Real Taste Of India.
After passing by here the past couple of weeks and then reading the first review on dinehere I had to try this place.

Today I enjoyed their buffet lunch with a co-worker and we were both very impressed. We arrived at around 11:50am just as the fresh buffet items were being stocked up in the buffet trays. We quickly filled our plates with some delicious curries, not too spicy, some nice plump and fresh tandorri chicken, a delicious eggplant veggie dish, some great naan bread, hot out of the oven and tucked into it. At almost 4pm I am still full and the thought of dinner hasn't even crossed my mind.

Hot, fresh, nicely spiced and delicious food. The first experience was outstanding and will mean a future visit sooner then later.

Because it's a buffet you basically serve yourself so can't say too much about the service. The girl who filled our water glasses was pleasant enough, although quite shy and a little standoffish. Perhaps she is just getting comfortable with her new position.

The value was outstanding. There are a few eateries in the area with decent enough food but outlandish prices, case in point Beirut right across the street. At Beirut they offer a very smallish swarma platter for about $13.50, outrageous in my view for basically a take away restaurant. Real Taste Of India have an all you can eat East Indian Buffet for $11.99

As word of mouth spreads I believe you are going to see a very successful restaurant at this location, finally , provided they keep up with the value and quality of food. If you are looking for a new East Indian Restaurant to try out try this place, I think you'll be impressed too.

I'll Be Back For Sum More
Submitted Wednesday, October 6, 2010 - 4:00pm [Dine in]

Came here Sunday for Dim Sum. Arrived at about 12noon, they open at 10:30 in retrospect should of been here as soon as they opened. The restaurant was packed with tons of hungry eyes staring down at those seated flashing the "hurry the heck up and finish look".

Finally got seated after about a 45 minute wait and immediately started to tuck into a tasty dim sum lunch.
Food was there almost on the spot, lucky for the table cloth as we were ready to eat it. Enjoyed some very nice shrimp dumplings, a beef noodle dish, some chinese veggies. The calamari dish in my view was inedible. Very salty and to me had a very strange taste. Wasn't very impressed with the egg tarts either, very small and not fresh tasting like the beautiful egg tarts I experienced at a restaurant in Beijing earlier this year.

Overall the dim sum experience was very good, a ton of food for a very reasonable price. For two we spent about $50.00. I will be back but next time may stand outside about 10:15am on a Sunday, just before they open.

Pink Sugar Cupcakery773 Fort Street, Victoria
One Visit Was Enough
Submitted Wednesday, September 29, 2010 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

I must agree with the previous review for the most part. I have been meaning to comment on this place after trying their product once when they first opened. Very disappointing indeed. I don't mean to pile on here but maybe some constructive criticism is needed because I have a feeling this place needs help. Everytime I walk by here it is virtually empty, the odd person here or there but that is about it.

I must comment first on the prices. Could Pink Sugar simply be pricing themselves right out of business?
Absolutely outrageous is the only way to describe what they are charging. What is the justification for the price of a very simple cupcake?

As for the cupcake itself, truly nothing special. The cake part is small, the icing part is huge and from what I remember from that first experience, didn't call for another. The look of their cakes and their display is very much in need of a make over. Although the shop is new it is just not inviting enough and the way they have their cupcakes displayed is a fail.

I have not been back to the Pink Sugar Cupcakery since my first visit so that pretty much says everything. The owners of this place need to have another look at a Cupcakes location in Vancouver because to me they are doing it right.

Chillaxin' With The Beautiful Peeps
Submitted Wednesday, September 29, 2010 - 9:10pm [Dine in]

Went to The Local a couple of weeks ago for drinks and an appy. This is obviously the place to be seen. Beautiful spot in Kits right across from the beach with a huge patio full of thirty/forty somethings in their True Religion Jeans and Christian Audigier T's. No less than two Ferrari's parked outside. Okay enough about the clientele.

A nicely renovated spot and unlike some of the customers not overly pretentious. Had service on the spot from a very friendly girl and enjoyed their wine special, 4.50 for a glass of house red or white you just can't go wrong.

As for the food enjoyed just an apple the edamame beans. They kick these up with a nice chili spice sauce , they were the best beans I've had, really tasty. I watched as various different waitresses brought forth delicious looking burgers and sandwiches to the customers looked very very good.

If you are watching your pennies after shelling out $350.00 for your jeans this is the place. Can't wait to go back but must go shopping first.

Very Well Done
Submitted Wednesday, August 11, 2010 - 9:36pm [Dine in]

Came here for my birthday celebration last month along with ten friends. One of Victoria's newest establishments is out of the blocks in a very impressive fashion. My friend arranged the dinner and although they don't "officially" take reservations they were very accommodation. When we arrived the hostess at the front door was extremely friendly and in good spirits. Not sure what to expect when we walked through the doors because as mentioned they don't really take reservations. I was impressed to see a long table set for ten ready for us right by the bar. Our order was taken promptly once everyone arrived. Our server was very good, busy due in part to our table of ten but she didn't miss a beat.

I ordered one of their pizza's. It was a thin crust pizza just the right size and was very nice, not outstanding but as per my review a "solid" tasting pizza. My dining partners had various different things, a couple had the thai salad and they reported it to be very good.

Earlier in the day one of my friends brought by an ice cream cake to be served after dinner. Without prompting our server brought the cake , candles and all. I was very impressed because I have found that some establishments sort of frown on this bring your own cake sort of thing, not here they were more than happy to do it for us and made my birthday dinner a very pleasant experience.

Browns Socialhouse falls into the same category as Earl's, Milestones, Cactus Club. I have been to all of these establishments mentioned and so far the service here beats them all.

Turn that frown upside down.
Submitted Monday, August 9, 2010 - 3:40pm [Dine in]

Went to the Fishermen's Terrace last week for a birthday celebration. There were ten of us and when we arrived at 6:30pm our table was ready.

The very stern looking server quickly filled our tea pots with jasmine tea and passed out the menu's.
First thing I noticed, the prices. Luckily I wasn't paying for this dinner for ten. We ordered a series of dishes when everyone arrived including a very nice eggplant dish, a sweet and sour pork, some duck and various other things I really didn't know what they were. Nothing tasted terrible, fresh and tasty for the most part.

Our server was all business. No chit chat, no smile, nothing just bring stuff and take stuff away. A little personality would be nice but perhaps that's extra.

All in all, a nice dinner nothing mind blowing with the exception of the bill that I never got to see.

Floyd's Diner866 Yates Street, Victoria
Couldn't Disagree More With The Previous Review
Submitted Monday, July 19, 2010 - 3:44pm [Dine in]

Hit up Floyd's again just yesterday for a great Sunday breakfast. My dining partner and I were there just around 9:30am, minutes before they were totally slammed with Sunday breakfast customers.

Once again my breakfast was outstanding. We were seated immediately on the patio and had hot coffee in our cups before you could blink an eye. I ordered my usual the rancheros incrediablous and yes they were everything I could hope for. A huge plate with fresh ingredients including a bunch of melted cheese and very nicely done guac.

The dish arrived with their new "signature" potato's. They were fresh, well seasoned and simply deeeelish.
My breakfast companion had eggs, sausage, potato's, and a great tasting pancake that I sampled.

To me Floyds is probably "the" best breakfast place in Victoria. Their lunches are good as well but I prefer to enjoy the first meal of the day there. Not a fancy place but an eclectic mix of serves having fun and treating their customers well. Trust me, other establishments in Victoria could learn a thing or two from Floyds.

I Really Like This Place
Submitted Wednesday, June 9, 2010 - 4:37pm [Dine in]

The new location has been opened now for about two months or so and I have visited at least a half dozen times already. Not so sure about the ambience of the new location. It is huge, sort of cafeteria looking but I suppose your typical Japanese minimalistic space.

The food is always good, I have never been disappointed at Shiki Sushi. Try the My My My Roll or Katsu Chicken Bento Box. Always well done and tasty. The my my my roll is very nice. The Katsu chicken bento box is very large with a generous amount of chicken with a tasty sauce for dipping. I love the rice with that "brown sauce" someone else mentioned. It is a soy based sauce, salty but for my taste buds deeelish.

The owner Tony has got to be the hardest working guy in Victoria. He is always there and always greets people coming through the door with a "hello".

If you are wondering about prices since the move they have not changed. Very affordable sushi and bento boxes. The Katsu Chicken Bento box will run you about ten bucks includes chicken, rice, salad and a bit of fruit. You really can't go wrong with Shiki Sushi, it has become one of my favorites.

Charlatan, The1447 Commercial Dr, Vancouver
Better Than The Weather Outside
Submitted Monday, May 31, 2010 - 12:29pm [Dine in]

Dropped by The Charlatan on Saturday to get away from the non stop drizzle outside. We were greeted by a very unfriendly young looking girl, looked about 16, who took us to our table. Barely a word out of her and she certainly didn't look like she was having a great day. Attention bar/restaurant operators, hire people who at least fake interest in what they are doing.

Ordered calamari and wings. They were out of calamari and the day really had just begun. We were there at around 2pm, so they didn't stock up yet from the day before or what?

Instead of the calamari our server, who was actually not bad, suggested the mussels so we ordered them.
The order arrived in a good enough time and the mussels were just passable, somewhat fishy tasting and not very plump. The sauce served with them was sparse and reminded me of something made with a water base. Let's see, water, salt and pepper to taste. The 'butter sauce" they were suppose to come with certainly didn't taste buttery.

The hot wings that we ordered along with the mussels were your standard hot wings not a single thing special about them. They were also a little on the small side with a couple of carrots and celery sticks and no dipping sauce.

Come to think about it, the experience was just slightly better than the weather. At least we were dry.

Love those "Yammy Fries".
Submitted Monday, May 10, 2010 - 4:16pm [Dine in]

Came here yesterday with my sister visiting from out of town. She had experienced the PF yam fries and mussels last summer and really wanted to check this place out again.

You know what it's like, the first time you eat something you really like and can't wait to have again, will it live up to the first experience? Happy to report two thumbs up and at least a toe.

She ordered what she remembered from her first visit and was again very impressed. A generous portion of yam fries smothering a pound of fresh, plump mussels with this delicious "curry cream" sauce. I would describe it as sort of a curry poutine. I must say, it was good.

We shared the mussels/yam fries I also ordered the coconut prawns with curry and rice. My prawns were fresh and plump and very tasty in a curry sauce, the same one I believe they use for the mussels. The six coconut curry prawns came with a disappointing tasting white rice that I can only describe as perhaps Uncle Ben's, not so good.

Our server was in a good mood and there when we needed her.

PF owned by the same people as Bard & Banker and Irish Times serve up a very pricey pint. Beer ain't cheap but I suppose standard for most pubs in the area.

All in all a beautiful day and a very nice lunch.

Rathskeller Schnitzel Haus1205 Quadra St, Victoria
Bring On The Heart Monitor
Submitted Saturday, April 10, 2010 - 3:24pm [Dine in]

For starters this is not light food. If you are on a low fat, high fiber, calorie counting sort of diet skip this place. If you are feeling like a high calorie, heavy , fill you to the brim sort of meal you can't go wrong with the Rathskeller.

I came here last night with seven other friends to take in the ambience and taste of Germany right here in little ole Victoria. The restaurant wasn't very busy for a Friday night and we were seated right away.

For starters I ordered the cucumber salad with a lovely dill dressing. So let me correct myself, yes, there is something here on the healthy side. Of course I wasn't going to eat just the cucumber salad , by the way, it was nice light and refreshing and just the right amount, a nice starter.

My main course consisted of the schnitzel topped with some bits of seafood like tiny scallops and pieces of faux crab in a white sauce. It was truly delicious. The dish came with some very nicely cooked potato pancakes and excellent red cabbage. I was very impressed with the taste and quality of the meal.

A couple of my dining partners shared the meat platter with sausage, schnitzel, spaetzle, potatoes and a few other yumming looking things that got rave reviews and so much they needed doggie bags.

Our waitress was a very pleasant person with a sense of humour and prompt enough that I don't have any complaints.

I was still full when I woke up this morning. If I ate German food like this on a regular basis I would be wearing a moo moo in no time and have to hire someone to tie my own shoes. It was very , very good. I'll be back.

Boathouse Restaurant, The1795 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
A New Years Eve Letdown
Submitted Monday, January 4, 2010 - 10:56am [Dine in]

Part of the reason for the poor service rating has nothing to do with our actual server NYE so let me explain. I called to make reservations here at least four weeks in advance. A few days prior to NYE made a call to reconfirm the reservations and they had no record of me making my prior reservation. Very frustrating. Reminds me of the old Seinfeld episode. "You can take the reservation you just can't hold the reservation".
Needless to say there was more than enough room here NYE, a reservation really wasn't even required but that is besides the point.

My dining partner and I had the 8:30pm seating. It was a three course meal at $65.00 per person. My appetizer included asparagus with goat cheese and a few bits of sundried tomatoe. There is a very fine line between el dente and raw veggies. My asparagus was almost raw, like they just dipped it in hot water. Too el dente for me thanks. My partner had the chili chicken appy and he was quite happy with it. A very basic dish of chicken cubes in a thai type sauce.

For the main course I ordered the steak with lobster and crab meat. My partner the 1.5lb Lobster. My steak was very good and done perfectly although the crab/lobster meat was very sparse and not that tasty actually. The steak came with terrible mashed/garlic potatoes that I hardly touched.
My dining partner on the other hand really enjoyed what looked like a very nice sized lobster.

The finishing touch was a berry cheesecake and a key lime pie. I had the Key Lime Pie, quite tasty but a little on the smallish size.

In conclusion the meal was just okay for me. Not worth the $65.00 charge. The final bill btw included a glass of beer and a glass of very over priced wine was $180.00 including tip. Not a very good value in my mind.

Our server as well was just okay. A nice enough fellow with a tinge of "I don't really want to be here tonight" sort of a feeling. He was there when we needed him although was a little scarce one or two times, needed more water but couldn't track him down.

What really sort of shocked me was the lack of people in the restaurant. We sat in the top floor of the restaurant for the 8:30pm seating and it was half full the entire time we were there. Not really sure what that says.

Restaurants are afraid of losing business with the HST coming into place as well as an economy that is still in recovery mode. It would really be beneficial for restaurants to try to get everything right. The reservation thing was really a turn off. The cost of the meal I believe was also about 20/30 dollars more than I think it should of been.

This Canoe Is Seaworthy
Submitted Sunday, December 27, 2009 - 10:41am [Dine in]

Went to the Blue Canoe last night for a early Boxing Day meal and was not disappointed in the least. My dining partners and I arrived shortly after five and were quickly greeted by a very cheery fellow who took us to our table.

Shortly thereafter our server arrived and explained to us in detail the specials for the night. Very impressive and he didn't leave out a thing. One of my dining partners and myself went to share the two piece halibut fish and chips plus an order of the curry mussels. The other dining partner ordered the sable fish.

After a short wait our meals arrived. The halibut fish and chips was a very generous portion and the thing I liked most about it was the fact that it was very light on the batter. Nothing worse than an over battered piece of fish that you tend to get at many restaurants. Here they cook it just right. The fish was generous and very tasty. The fish came with a nice helping of their homemade fries which were not greasy but delicious.

The mussels were again a very generous portion but the curry flavour really didn't come through at all, so was disappointed somewhat with the mussels.

The sable fish looked big and delicious which it was as reported to us by our other dining partner.

Our server was a very friendly guy and there when we needed him. Great service, keep in mind it was early and we were about the only table in the place but still they made us feel welcome and were prompt and courteous.

I recommend this dining spot. If you like your fish, this place is a must visit.

Now That Was A Salad
Submitted Monday, December 14, 2009 - 1:55pm [Dine in]

Went to the Four Mile on Saturday afternoon and had one of the best salads I've had in ages. I ordered the goat cheese with dried cranberry and pear salad and I must say it was incredible.

The salad arrived on a huge plate with a ton of fresh green's , sliced pear , a generous helping of dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds. To top off the dish the salad came with a ton of delicious , fresh goat cheese. Not a few little crumbles of cheese but plenty of it to make this a fabulous , healthy meal. Could of gone for a burger or pizza but thought I would keep things on the skinny side, although these days I am not, but that's another story.

My dining partner ordered the meat lovers pizza and I must say it looked great. Loaded with cheese and meaty goodness from what I could see. They certainly don't cheap out at this restaurant, hats off to the guys and gals in the kitchen. That is the way to do it.

My only little beef would be the wait time for our meals. A little longer than I think it should have been by the time we thought about asking for our meals by the waitress they had arrived.

Great ice cold beer too in a true pint , not a smaller glass passing for a pint. All in all an excellent lunch and can't wait for another one of those salads.

Submitted Tuesday, October 27, 2009 - 8:59pm [Dine in]

Just read the Lully's review below and because I was just there today I have to show my support. I enjoyed a Veggie Sandwich for lunch today and was really impressed.
The sandwich included some spicy mayo that was really good and kicked the sandwich up a notch or two. It was very tasty and I will be back for another one.
The Sandwich Bar is in a very small space and at noon hour was fairly busy. Full of downtown folk who wouldn't crack a smile at a stranger if their lives depended on it. Why such unfriendliness in this town? Anyway, that's for another website.
I struck up a conversation with the owner of the store and he told me about these great pickles they have and offered me a sample. I guess you get what you give.
My sandwich was under seven bucks and a much healthier choice by far than smoked meat. Lip smacking good and I will be back for another.

Went to this Moxies a couple of weeks ago and had a fairly good experience.
The waitress was very friendly and helpful, fast as well. It was a typical busy Friday Night.

My dineing partners and I ordered our drinks and they arrived in record time.
Shared some calamari to start. It was a little chewy but not bad enough to turn away. My main course was disappointing. I ordered the Indian Curry Dish and Holy Salt Lick. I should of brought along some of my high blood pressure meds to off set the pound of salt in this dish. Very , very salty.
I ate it though, was hungry and things have to be really really bad for me to complain. One of my dineing partners on the other hand felt the fries that came with his meal were not up to snuff and told the waitress. She asked if he wanted new one's and he said no, for some reason. Regardless about five minutes later a new, fresh plate of pipeing hot fries arrived for hiim. Nice touch.

I have eaten here before and have really enjoyed it this time due to the salt content not so much. Reasonably priced and an overall good experience I will be back and order something else.

Submitted Monday, October 12, 2009 - 5:35pm [Dine in]

Went for a quick bit here the other night. I have been to Nandos in Vancouver, Metrotown and have really enjoyed it. This experience not so much.
I ordered a half chicken with baked potato and a honey lager. My bill came to just over $16.00. The meal came within a reasonable time however the meal itself was questionable. My half chicken was the size of a cornish hen. Swiss Chalet gives you twice as much for less price. I have never eaten such a small half chicken. I ordered a baked potato with my meal, it came with rice. Please the restaurant was not very busy and they couldn't get my order correct. Regardless I ate the rice as I was hungry and didn't want to kick up a fuss about the rice instead of the potato, same amount of carbs so whatever but the point is , very small simple order please get it right.
Will I be back? Not anytime soon. Very expensive for what you get and the food was just ok, not great as in I have to get back here for more.
