Coast1054 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Completely Distasteful and Unclassy
Submitted Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 9:16am [Dine in]

I work for a worldwide engineering firm with over 7000 employees. The local office has nearly 500 people. We book a lot of corporate and client dinners, including meetings that people come from around the world to attend. We are well known and not a group to annoy.

But sadly Coast has lost our business. I booked dinner for a relatively small group; 10 people, with people here from Montreal and Ontario. They had been looking forward to this reservation as they had heard about this restaurant. Everything was going fine until 2 hours after they got there they were asked to leave. Reservations were at 6:30 and were asked to leave at 8:30. No they were not rowdy, no they hadn't been obnoxious. Apparently dining at Coast you are given a time limit so they can fit new people in.

In the two hours my group had been there their bill was nearly $1000. Yes, I realize not a huge bill in Coast's world, but they weren't done. They were looking for a place to enjoy, hang out, and socialize in the great city of Vancouver. They were left with an incredibly bad taste in their mouths and have completely renounced all Coast affiliates; the whole Glowbal Collection.

I'm sorry, but you don't kick a group of people out; you do your best to accommodate everyone and if you have trouble squeezing people in then maybe you need to rethink how you take reservations. It is NOT the patrons' fault if you overbook yourselves!

Coast - I realize that you think you are super important, high end, and are above everyone else but that was completely unclassy. I will be spreading the word.

Happy Valley Chinese Kitchen7613 Edmonds St, Burnaby
a hidden gem!
Submitted Thursday, October 1, 2009 - 6:02pm [Dine in]

I used to eat at this place called Johnny B's chinese food which was in a corner store. They moved and I was so sad. Then I found them again. They moved locations to Happy Valley in Burnaby and am I so glad I found them. The location seems slightly questionable, but inside is so different; a gem. The service is amazing. If you get the little owner lady (can't remember her name), she is phenomenal. It's your standard chinese food, but I think it's fresh and very well done. I've eaten in and taken out. The dining room is small but has nice furniture; what you would find in someone's home, very comfortable. Try the real fruit juices. Refreshing. I definitely recommend this as a good place to get your chinese food craving satisfied. Yummy!
