Pantry Restaurant, The1535 Lougheed Hwy, Port Coquitlam
shattered childhood memories
Submitted Wednesday, March 3, 2010 - 10:41pm [Dine in]

Growing up in PoCo, we used to go to the Pantry for desert, after our school concerts. We would do dinner there from time to time. It was one of the few family restaraunts in town that served food we could all agree on. This evening, I went with my mum, my sister, my neice and nephew, as they do Family night, every wedensday. Kids eat for 2.99, it seems like a screaming deal. It was a disaster. When we arrived, there were two other groups in the restaraunt; yet all the tables were filthy. The staff were unmotivated and unfriendly. We waited twenty minutes to order drinks, another ten to order food, this only by demanding it when our drinks came, and another forty for the food to come, on top of the half hour it had taken to order it. When the food finally did come, they had gotten everyone's order wrong. My sister had requested no ranch dressing on her Buger, for example, instead they put extra ranch dressing on it, and left off the onions that she had asked them to put in, and they gave my five year old niece an adult sized caeser salad. What five year old wants wilted lettuce covered in fish-paste dressing? Our meals all came out at different times, things we requested were forgotten, the food was not hot, and it was almost in-edible. And that, coming from me, means a lot. I am in the army, and have been served some rancid food (I have have had green eggs and ham, and no they did not use food-dye). finally, fed up with the lack of service, and the poor quality, we gave up, requested our desert to go, and left. They gave us uncooked apple-crisp, and melted icecream. The icecream was melted when they gave it to us... maybe they thought the frozen apples in the raw apple-crisp would re-freeze it in transit, I do not know. All I know is that my possitive memories of going to the Pantry with the family have been ruined, and I will not be going back there any time soon.

Smoking Dog Bistro, The1889 W 1st Avenue, Vancouver
a disaster
Submitted Saturday, September 29, 2007 - 3:16pm [Dine in]

We went here for a friend's birthday. We had heard good things about the place and were looking foreward to it. The staff were rude, the portions miniscule, and the pricess obscene. one girl in our group ordered the ravioli, and when it arrived, there were four small bitesezed noodles in what looked like lumpy ketchup. My girlfirend's chicken was undercooked, and then, at the end of the night, they refused to split the bill, or give us paper and a calculator to even work things through, stating that "they forgot to split things up earlier, and could not do it later; besides, they dont usually do seperate bills there." And to add insult to injury, there was a 20% gratuity on top of the already exessive prices, and also expected a tip, in addition. Even had the service been acceptable, a tip on top of a gratuity that high is unlikely. I will not go back, and I recomend avoiding this restaraunt at all costs
