Decent place...
Submitted Monday, December 31, 2007 - 1:24pm [Dine in]

This joint is sort of past its hey-dey, it's frequented often by students (not a bad thing), but the place has seen better days in terms of decor and overall ambience.

The food is standard fare bar food, but there's a good variety of beers. I've had some good memories of this place, but i wouldn't go here if I was taking someone out for a night on the town - but otherwise a good casual place to have a drink

Had good experiences both timess
Submitted Sunday, December 23, 2007 - 7:40pm [Dine in]

I went here once with my wife, and a 2nd time with a larger group of 10 people. This place is loud, whether it's the dining area or the lounge, it's more lounge than dining area...so if you want an intimate dinner this isn't the place for you.

The service for this type of franchise establishment was superb, from the person opening the door, to the waitresses and the staff lingering around to see if someone needs something extra.

The food is quite good too, i'd compare it to milestones or Earl's but it goes just a bit further in terms of detail, and innovation. The appetizers are worth trying, particularly the Habachi chicken, Lettuce Wraps, Satay Sticks were stand-outs.

For the main entrees, i had the fish tacos which were very good, and the linguini was well done, but a bit too salty, the table for twos are a bit tight.

Above all the prices are pretty reasonable, and you'll leave feeling like they took good care of you.

Prepare to spend lots of money...
Submitted Tuesday, December 11, 2007 - 8:32pm [Dine in]

The two things you'll notice when you walk in here is that the waitress (in this case) greets you with, let me explain the menu to you...

You'll also notice that there are 2 drink menus and one small tapas "tasting menu". The decor is very nice, service is excellent...but there's a reason for that, and that's because if you're two people, you'll be forking out at least 100$ with drinks, if you want to be anywhere near full.

I know this is a tasting lounge, but the portions are ridiculously small... even though the quality is impressive, you are left with an empty feeling after forking over so much money for so little food.

The owner is from Bin 942, and that place was affordable with good quality food, here you find even better food, but you are left wanting more.

If they increased their portions a bit, i think they'd do better - when a risotto comes in something the size of a small coffee mug, you can't help but compare to the large risotto dishes you've had anywhere else for almost half the price.

Great Sushi place...a real find.
Submitted Tuesday, November 20, 2007 - 10:19am [Dine in]

This sushi place is run by a japanese (elderly) husband and wife, meaning it's authentic and he's been a sushi chef for 20 years he said.

The sushi is top notch, and always fresh, you won't find the an assortment of other things here (there's some Udons and chicken teriyaki), but this is a sushi place.

In a neighborhood filled with good chinese restaurants, this is a real gem for anybody who lives east of granville street or away from the Drive.

The place is small, and simple, but the food and friendliness of the owner is great. You know you've hit a goldmine, when most of the clientele is japanese ;-)

Feenie's2563 W Broadway, Vancouver
Lumiere's better half
Submitted Monday, June 25, 2007 - 10:12am [Dine in]

This restaurant named after Vancouver's golden chef Rob Feenie is a great place to dine, the last time i went my wife and i had the 3-course meal (less than 35$ each).

The food was fantastic, definitely french food but with mixed influences, the decor and ambiance is very nice, but a bit on the loud side if you planned on a quiet romantic dinner.

Rob Feenie is one of the world's top chefs for a good reason, and Feenie's delivers a great experience.

Guu with Garlic1698 Robson St, Vancouver
A definite place to visit
Submitted Monday, June 25, 2007 - 10:09am [Dine in]

Guu is one of those places i always end up taking friends/family who visit from out of town - it's unique Izakaya atmosphere (one of the first I'm sure in vancouver) make it a much more authentic japanese experience, and the ever changing specials menu makes it interesting to return every so often.

The portions are cheap, but they're not large either, so except to spend at least 40-50$ for 2 people, including drinks and tip.

Their salads are exceptional, oden is very good, any of the carpaccio 's have also been very tasty with a mayo/wasabi sauce.

Seasons in the ParkWest 33rd & Cambie, Vancouver
A must-experience restaurant
Submitted Monday, June 25, 2007 - 10:04am [Dine in]

This is one of those places, i'd be tempted to call it a landmark, just because of it's great view over Queen E. park and all of the north shore. The restaurant is very warm and nicely decorated, with a large tree growing in the middle of the floor.

Service is quick and attentive, i've only been for lunch, but have gone 3-4 times with friends and family. Although a tad pricey (10-15$) range per dish, the food is very good.

The kid's menu is actually very good as well, particularly their spaghetti for kids, was better than most spaghetti i've had anywhere else.

An overall memorable experience to take your significant other, family or visiting friends.

Seoul Dookbaegi1031 Kingsway St., Vancouver
A great Korean restaurant in Mid/East Vancouver
Submitted Monday, June 25, 2007 - 1:43am [Dine in]

This is a nice and cozy restaurant in an area dominated by Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants.

I've been here several times with my wife, and the food is very good. I've tried the Kam Jak Tang (pork stew for 2), Sol Long Tang (beef bone soup), Soon Doo Bu (tofu, seafood stew), amongst others.

The first three dishes i mentioned are a good measuring stick for any Korean restaurant, and this place cooks all three very very well.

The place is nicely decorated, and you'll always leave very full and satisfied. The side dishes are good too.
