    Enjoyed the Hub experience. For one, the New West skytrain location is very convenient for a train rider who plans to drink and not drive. High lofty ceiling, wide open wall windows, comfy booth seating, Fraser river view, new west wall art.. feeling cozy & new on the walk in. Add friendly service with a smile and who are knowledgeable about the yummz, sips and recommend well.. all good in the new west hood now. Both times were good times at the Hub. Good food, good sips, fair prices. Perfect place for a chatty drink catch up session with friends. Cheers Hub!

    We arrived shortly after 12 pm. Restaurant was half-full. Server took our order at 12:15 pm. Took almost 45 minutes for a Breakfast Burrito & a Huevos Rancheros. Comes with a fruit skewer with one chunk each of honeydew, cantaloupe & a strawberry + a small cup of roasted potatoes.

    Kitchen can be very slow and during busy periods, there are times where service is needed and the staff seems to be talking more than working. Price is high with varying food quality. Better to come before 5pm where the prices are more sensible as the appetizers are discounted. I live right above the restaurant and its hard to justify the cost + food + service quality

    We ate on the patio which has a view of the Fraser River. The server was very knowledgeable about the beers that were available and also her recommendations for the food were all good. Great meeting spot, we are from New Westminster but our son and daughter-in-law came on skytrain from Vancouver - so this is a very convenient meeting spot. We all ordered a different entree and were all happy with our meals

    Had a fabulous birthday dinner here. Ambiance and service wonderful. Food was really great. Had the house wine which was delicious, the Wok Squid to start and then the Sirloin Steak with Mac N Cheese - a great and exciting meal. This was our 3rd time at this great place. Extremely easy to access - on the higher level at New Westminster sky train station. Place was very busy, which made the atmosphere vibrant and energetic.

    We sat at the table for a long time before having to go up and ask where our server was. The restaurant was almost empty so it wasn't like they were busy. The server who finally served us had the most uncaring attitude. It was as though we were bothering her. The food is pretty good - the poutine was amazing, the steak was perfectly done but the chicken sandwich was tasteless and the crabcakes were too salty. I would go back to give them another chance only because I've been there before haven't had a problem (and LOVE the lobster grilled cheese). My husband (who I was taking there for the first time) said he would NEVER return. So one customer lost due to bad serving staff.

    Food was ok not very flavourful. Priced as most other chain restaurants. We had appies and few drinks. Service was ok. Felt a bit like we had to keep looking for our server for drink/water refills. Ambience is nice and restaurant has a nice view of Fraser river. Probably will not go again.

    Service was exceptional during recent visit on a busy Friday night. We had two small children with us and the hostess and our server both did a fantastic job making everyone comfortable. Food was pretty good, however the salmon entree I ordered was slightly over cooked. Food & beverage prices were quite reasonable too. Overall I would recommend and I intend to try HUB again in the near future.

    Mixed thoughts on the food, Salmon, salad, burger was good. Pork was overcooked, steak sandwich was cold. It was a busy late afternoon and the meals came at three spaced out timings so we had to start eating before everyone was served. We will try the restaurant again.

    The restaurant wasn't even full, yet it took over 2 hours to receive our meal!? The food was a joke...2 of us ordered prime rib hash. One dish came with no prime rib on it at all... only potatoes in a gooey brown sauce plus 4 slices toast, no fruit. The second dish came with 5 tiny pieces of shredded prime rib chunks, 2 slices of toast, plus fruit. How can 2 of the same order be so inconsistently different?!

    Looking forward to celebrating a birthday on a Wednesday. 50% off house wine and a well written menu. Wine was priced right! Food sounded better in print than it was... Great spot, great view, super ambience but unfortunately our server was lackadaisical to say the least. Even when she did show up at our table she was less than engaged! But, parking was reimbursed and the birthday girl's dessert was comp'd. We aren't going to rush back but I do hope HUB is around to stay in New West!

    Went here with family, sine we were 6 I made reservations. While we were seated quickly and served to the best of our waitress's ability, the kitchen was extremely slow and no attempt was made to make up for it. Even though the manager came by and said he knew our wait was long, he didn't do anything to make up for it - or even apologize! Too bad, the food is good and the beer selection is great, but not caring that it took 2 hrs to get 2 appies and 6 entrees? Unacceptable. We won't be going back.

    Menu was interesting. Calamari appetizer was tender and nicely spiced. Tomato sauce on the pizza had a lot of sugar in it, which clashed badly with the smoked salmon on top. Beer pours were small but prices weren't. Very loud. Expensive.

    The food was good although the house salad was lacking, it was only lettuce and a few extremely thin pieces of radish, which made the salad virtually tasteless. For the price of the meal, the salad should have been much more hardy, with tomatoes and real radishes, not just slivers, and maybe some cucumbers and carrots. I'm a big salad lover, but the salad just didn't rate with me. Just because it's a "side" salad, doesn't mean it doesn't warrant some veggies in - veggies are dirt cheap!!!!!! However, the meal itself (Mac & Cheese) was delicious and the service was good. However, I'm tired of paying $9.00+ for a drink; doubles are all they had on their menu, all I want is a single. That's a no-no to me. Not everyone wants to get hammered!

    They are obviously looking for the winners from the casino because they are over priced and the service from both the waitress and kitchen has much to be desired. They also have two different menus that we were not aware of before deciding what we wanted on the limited version. The couple sitting near us ordered something that wasn't on our menu is how we found out there was a different one. When we questioned why she told us it was a night where a show was going on but the restaurant was almost empty. The salad was made with whole leaf and not sure why. The steak and chicken dishes came to the table quite some time later and were told that they were going to make the sauces that were to come with the meal soon...

    Had an awesome time at this place.. food was great, service was excellent and the menu has great selection! Fun drink list too - lots of old classics. Try the Gin Caesar! All the food we had was great - wok squid, lobster wings, prime rib, burger & steak. Everything was cooked perfectly and served hot. Our waitress made the evening that much more memorable as she understood our sarcastic sense of humour and joined in on the conversation when she checked in on us. Can't wait to go back!

    The server was awkward and the service remained poor Throughout our meal. Due to an allergy My friend asked the server the ingredients in the house salad, to which the server was unaware. The salad came with something added, when we questioned what the ingredient was we were told 'I don't know, some kind of nut' Our appy came out a whole 60 seconds before our meal, and a round of drinks took 20mins We all found our food tasty. The location is ideal & the view is very nice. Will probably try it again for brunch.

    Went on a Friday night...make sure to make reservations...can be a bit of a wait. We had the Lobster Wings and Beef Carpaccio for a starter. Both were good, but it took an extra 5-10 mins to get the butter that is supposed to come with the lobster. Also, they could give a few more crustinis with the beef...3 isn't enough compared to the amount of beef they serve. My boyfriend had the Crack Burger, was very tasty and the beef tasted fresh. I had the Crab Grilled Cheese...also very good. Perfect amount of crab and cheese. Only issue we had was the fact they seemed to forget to put the condiments with the meals...always had to ask for them. I am guessing with every new restaurant there is going to be a few kinks to work out.
