Connor Butler2145 Granville St, Vancouver
Divine dining
Submitted Friday, October 19, 2007 - 5:25pm [Dine in]

I recently had the pleasure of bringing a large group to Connor Butler for a dinner. Our group of 22 was attentively waited on, and the food and beverages were awesome. Everyone raved about the restaurant.

I was impressed by the awesome mojito that Ron made for me, which ended up being a very popular drink with our group as a result. The food was outstanding. The lobster and shrimp bisque was beautifully presented, and the memory of it from last week still makes my mouth water. My tenderloin was perfectly cooked, and the black truffle gnocchi and duck l'orange was equally well received by our party.

The portion sizes are perfect; you can indulge in everything without feeling that, oops, I shouldn't have.

I highly recommend Connor Butler. It was a divine dining experience, and I'll be sharing it with all my friends and family.

Bishop's Restaurant2183 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Submitted Sunday, October 7, 2007 - 3:42pm [Dine in]

Three of us dined at Bishop's last night, having made our reservations last week. We were seated in the upper eating area, close to the kitchen/bathroom hallway. That particular area was a bit too busy for what I would consider intimate dining. The ambiance was nice, but nothing to write home about.

Between the three of us, we ordered different appetizers, entrees and desserts and sharing bites of each. The duck and striploin were lovely, but my halibut failed to impress me. The halibut and mushrooms were almost bland. I had that remorse of, I wish I could ask for something else instead.

Dessert was nice, but again, nothing with a WOW! factor. I found their loose tea to be too strong and uncomplimentary to the spice cake I had.

Service - their staff was attentive, but I would advise them to be a little more concientious of congregating near patrons as they dine. I like my personal space.

The total bill came to $370, which included a $75 bottle of Sauv. Blanc which didn't really strike me as that much better than some $40 bottles I've had. We were using a $200 gift certificate, which made the price more reasonable, but for the price we paid, I have enjoyed more memorable meals complete with wine pairing at places such as Le Gavroche and Hermitage. I'd rather go to Tojo's or even Mosaic and go all out than pay that kind of money for something that is just above average.

I simply found my experience at Bishop's to be unmemorable and I would recommend other restaurants before I would recommend this one.

Manhattan550 West Hastings St., Vancouver
Memorable Meal
Submitted Friday, July 27, 2007 - 12:35pm [Dine in]

A friend and I tried Manhattan last night for her birthday and were pleasantly surprised. The meal started with their take on a hot bun: a warm pretzel with a zesty mustard dipping sauce. I ordered the Steak Bites ($18) and was moaning with delight. I am still thinking about it the next day. My friend ordered the Squash Tubes, which is a delightful take on canneloni ($15).

It has been my experience lately that hotel restaurants are a great find; they tend to have very good food and are relatively quiet compared to a Keg or Cardero's. I would also say that my steak was one of the best I have had in a long time.

Highly recommend this place. And if you apply for a loyalty card, your subsequent visits are 15% your total bill (excluding alcohol).

Shabusen Yakiniku House755 Burrard St, Unit 202, Vancouver
Good bang for your buck!
Submitted Sunday, March 25, 2007 - 1:11am [Dine in]

Shabusen is a regular hangout for hubby and I - we like doing the BBQ pit on the weekends. For AYCE, it has high quality salmon and tuna nigiri, and the food usually comes pretty quick, even when the restaurant is busy.

I did go during lunch this week with some coworkers and they were a bit slow with bringing us our soda. They do occasionally forget the rice but are quick to make up for it.

For what you pay for, this place is pretty damn good.

Griffins900 West Georgia St., Vancouver
Not a bad regular hangout
Submitted Sunday, March 25, 2007 - 1:08am [Dine in]

We have three entertainment books and that's at least three free meals for us. The food has yet to disappoint - and in fact, I would say that their portobello mushroom dish is quite nice. Hubby loves to order their prime rib which looks like it could kill a small man, it is huge! and tasty!

The service has been excellent the last three times we have been there in the past month or so, with different servers, so it is nice to know there is consistency with the staff service.

I think one of the key selling points for some people is that the dessert buffet is all you can eat, and is included in the price of the entree. Yes, there are tasty confections awaiting you, but once you have tried the chocolate cake at Mosaic (Hyatt hotel at Burrard and Georgia), you will care less about buffet and more about quality.

We will still go to Griffins because we enjoy the quietness during weekday evenings, and we know the service and food are consistently above average.

Kobe Japanese Steak House1042 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Same old same old
Submitted Sunday, March 25, 2007 - 1:02am [Dine in]

Kobe used to be one of the main reasons I bought an entertainment book - I would never pay for two full priced meals at Kobe, it isn't worth it. But these days, if you have a lackluster chef, the whole experience is hardly worth a 2 for 1 coupon. Kobe isn't as good as it used to be, although it is far superior to the other teppanyaki place on Broadway and Burrard (yuck).

If I had no other choice, I would go to Kobe, but for primo steaks, there is always Griffins, Mosaic or the Keg around the corner. Kobe isn't worth the wait anymore.

Mosaic Bar and Grill655 Burrard St, Vancouver
Delightful dining
Submitted Sunday, March 25, 2007 - 12:57am [Dine in]

My husband and I stopped into Mosaic before listening to a jazz performance in the downstairs lounge. Dinner was amazing. Having been to Griffins, Kobe and the Keg in the past month, the steak at Mosaic put them all to shame. Not only was it cooked to perfection, but the au gratin melted in our mouths. I had the pumpkin ravioli - a divine delight - and savoured every bite.

A particularly nice touch was having the staff call us by our last names. It was nice to be addressed as Mrs. so and so, would you like more pepper. I felt well taken care of.

We ordered dessert, the chocolate chocolate (that's what it is called), in the lounge downstairs. It is a good thing we had three other people to help us with it. We didn't even make it through half of the cake. I would surmise that it is bigger than a toddler's head... If you love chocolate cake, this will blow your mind.

A wonderful evening, all in all, and we look forward to going back for a quiet, quality and sublime evening.
