Fantastic service, and a great view
Submitted Friday, July 2, 2010 - 11:45am [Dine in]

I signed up for Dine Here a few years ago and have only posted reviews when I had a remarkably good experience, or a remarkably bad experience. I am happy to report that this is for an OUTSTANDING experience.

My preference when dining out does not usually veer towards chain restaurants. I find it sometimes like eating in a factory, where the servers are popped out of cookie cutters and are reciting a speech. This was not the case at the Cambie Milestones. My server was genuine and told me all about what was going on in the restaurant without being a "pushy salesperson" She told me that this was a franchise and that they were trying things on the menu that the other Milestones don't have. I got to try a new beer I'd never heard of, which I forget the name, but it was cool to have the option. She also brought out a menagerie of animals for my 5 year old nephew without asking. When my meal came - I had the grilled mediterranean chicken - she brought a sampling of wine for free, "just because" it was her favorite pairing.

My only potential complaint was that the dessert menu is a tad overpriced. Nearly 8$ for Gelato and hot sauce is a bit much.

Overall, I was blown away by this experience because the server took every opportunity to do anything extra. She went above and beyond. Not to mention the view from the patio was stunning. I will definitely return to this location.

The only thing that could make this place any worse is insects - oh wait! There are insects!

Food - My eggs benny was soggy and cold, as was the food of everyone else in my groups. I complained very nicely, not really upset or angry, just wanting the problem addressed. She informed me that because the avocado and shrimp are refrigerated, it is always soggy, and that if it is re-made it will be the same. I told her that I had it there before, and it was good. She did take the benny off my bill, which I had only taken one bite of, but charged me almost 6 dollars for hashbrowns, which she took away before I was done.

Service - Worst ever. We had to get up and get our own cutlery and napkins, the paper towel in the restrooms was out, and I overheard the servers bitching about other customers. You have got to be kidding me ... if you pulled your heads out of your ass for long enough to breath, fueling the few brain cells in your head, you would realize they are not the problem.

Value - Considering I sat there waiting almost 5 minutes before I could get someone to stop while I repeatedly called, only to be told my food is supposed to be soggy, had to get my own cutlery and napkins, then was charged almost 6$ for cold hashbrowns, I'd say the value wasn't great.

Ambiance - There is a bee's nest on the patio. Otherwise, good place to people watch.

I was seriously looking forward to a nice breakfast, considering I was a bit hung over. It wouldn't have taken much to impress; lots of water, and some hot greasy food. But instead I got whiny servers with attitude problems, and a plate full of cold mush. Oh, and the side of excuses was extra tasty.

Worst experience ever.

We randomly stumbled across Revel the other evening, looking for a late night snack, and definitely were not disappointed. The share plates were packed full of flavor, and we had tons of fun trying various items off the menu. It also seemed like you couldn't take two steps without bumping into an owner, as we had not one, not two, but THREE introduce themselves to us. They were very accommodating and exceptionally personable. There are apparently six, we were old after commenting on this. The place is open until 2 a.m, and around 1 a.m a load of fresh baked chocolate chips cookies were handed out to guests, a special treat for everyone to enjoy on the house.

Seriously, how cool is that?
