Browns Socialhouse2296 W 4th Ave, Vancouver
Terrible food - even the water!
Submitted Wednesday, November 18, 2009 - 9:58pm [Dine in]

Dropped in here for brunch on a rainy day. The room is dominated by TVs showing football games, so I guess the beer/sports crowd is more their market. Three of us ordered tea, and although they had Mighty Leaf tea bags, they couldn't provide anything but lukewarm water. We kept wondering why the tea was so weak and wouldn't steep -- it's because the water was barely warm. Even after asking for hot water, all the waitress brought again was the same lukewarm water. The brunch wasn;t much better. The eggs benedict was on soggy English muffins and served bizarrely with french fries. My friend had some sort of bacon and egg sandwich on white sandwich bread that was like Wonderbread. The other order was a pizza, which was probably the best of the three items and almost palatable. Although it's not that expensive at $10-13 an entree, it was bad enough food to make me never want to go to Brown's again.

Pied-a-Terre3369 Cambie Street, Vancouver
A great addition to Cambie Street
Submitted Friday, December 28, 2007 - 5:22pm [Dine in]

This place appears to have hit a home run and has been packed since the day it opened. Their success is deserved. It offers a lovely, fairly quiet bistro atmosphere, with a good, simple French-inspired menu. It's the kind of place that's nice enough for a special occasion dinner, but casual and inexpensive enough to treat yourself to on a regular evening out. We had green salads, steak frites, crispy chicken (that night's special), chocolate mousse and a lemon tart brulee -- all were excellent and delicious. Including a half litre of wine, which was $25, the meal came out to about $100, pretty reasonable for the quality of food and ambience. It's a tiny restaurant so reservations are recommended or you may be in for a very long wait. It's also not the place to go if you want to have a long, social dinner where you linger -- they remind you that it's a two-hour turnover for tables, and you will be asked to leave if you exceed the time by too much. But we found two hours was plenty for a relaxing dinner that included appetizers and dessert. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place, and look forward to going back soon.

Me-N-Ed's Pizza Parlor7110 Hall Ave, Burnaby
Among the pizza I've had anywhere
Submitted Friday, December 28, 2007 - 5:10pm [Dine in]

Me-N-Ed's is easily the best pizza I've had in Greater Vancouver. Their special multi- layered crust is amazing; the ingredients are always fresh and plentiful. I've tried at least half the pizza menu, and it's all good. Special kudos for The Soprano, a fabulous pizza heaped with cappicolla, fresh tomatoes, basil and boccocini. Me-N-Ed's is a great casual place to eat for all ages and the service is always efficient. Sure, it costs a bit more than Pizza Hut or Panago, but it's also about a million times better tasting too.

Solly's Bagelry4071 Main Street, Vancouver
This place is coasting; consistently terrible service, average food
Submitted Wednesday, December 19, 2007 - 6:09pm [Dine in]

I've been going to Solly's on and off for years. Back when they only had one location, the bagels were good, and the Jewish deli was novelty in the neighbourhood. But for years now, the service has been terrible. The counter staff are always sullen, disinterested, and not terribly competent. It's amazing; everytime I've been in there, it's been like that, and it's with different staff too. It's very slow service, and I've received the wrong items before. I've seen them overcharge people. One time, I ordered three different products, and the counter person took it all and slopped it into small paper bag, so there were cookies on top of knishes on top of bagels. And when I questioned him about it, he just shrugged. This bad service happens all the time at Solly's. And although the bagels are still good, the knishes have been flavorless, and everything else, including their "famous" cinnamon buns are just okay, and not really worth going there. It's just always such an unpleasant experience in there, and the Main St. shop is tiny and crowded.
