Sandbar Seafood Restaurant1535 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Great decor, great food!
Submitted Saturday, April 21, 2007 - 8:23pm [Dine in]

I had research Celiac-friendly restaurants for my day trip to Granville Island, and I had initially planned to go to another restaurant, but someone from the Running Room recommended I check out the Sandbar. After checking out the menus of several restaurants on the island, I decided to try it out and I'm glad I did.

The waiter checked a few menu items for me to make sure that they were gluten-free, and I ended up choosing a delicious salmon dish that was both delicious and a feast for the eyes!

I sat on the patio on a cloudy April day, but the gas heaters, fireplaces and blankets made it feel like a sunny summer day. I highly recommend the Sandbar for people who are looking for a dining experience on Granville Island.

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House777 Thurlow Street, Vancouver
Pricey, but delicious!
Submitted Saturday, April 21, 2007 - 8:01pm [Dine in]

The concierge recommended Joe Fortes for a good steak, and she was right!

I ordered the Tenderloin, with sides of Cream Spinach and Asparagus with Hollandaise. The food was simply delicious, and the spinach was out of this world! If I had known about the size of the side dishes, I would have ordered just one, but it was so good, I continued eating long after my stomach told me to stop!

The service was impeccable. I have Celiac Disease and the waiter was very responsive and enquired with the chef about everything I wanted to order, to make sure it was gluten-free.

While this restaurant is pricey, it's definitely worth it for a special night out!

Savory Coast1133 Robson St., Vancouver
Good food, expensive wine
Submitted Monday, April 16, 2007 - 4:15pm [Dine in]

I had dinner at Savory Coast on my first night in Vancouver, due largely to a coupon for a free appetizer that they were handing out in the street.

Overall, the food was quite good and the service was above average. Due to a gluten allergy, I had to spend a bit of time with the waitress to find a suitable selection, but they were very helpful and attentive.

The wine by the glass is a bit expensive at $8.50, but otherwise, I was satisfied with my dining experience at Savory Coast.

Zin Restaurant & Lounge1277 Robson St., Vancouver
Very pleasant experience
Submitted Monday, April 16, 2007 - 4:09pm [Dine in]

Since I was staying at the Pacific Palisades, I decided to try out Zin. My experience was excellent, much better than the average hotel restaurant.

The service was impeccable: the staff was attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu.

I have a gluten allergy and I was impressed by the staff's knowledge of Celiac Disease and of all the ingredients of the items on the menu.

Improvements could me made on the furniture and d├ęcor, but overall, this was a very pleasant experience.
