Great food & serviceThis is our 'go to' spot when we want something great to eat. It's very reliable that way. Imaginative menu and combination of local ingredients. Pricey and noisy though.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisyGood food, good service, but too much noise for comfort. Conversation is difficult without shouting.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodBest steak I have ever had it was a rib eye steak.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in Vancouver!Always the best service, food, creativity in the menu - fabulous!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLapellah Restaurant - a solid "A"My husband & I enjoyed this restaurant; although dining earlier is recommended as it does get a bit loud. The restaurant has 2 sides; the opposite one was quieter with NO sports TV but we were seated on the other side opposite the bar. Next time, we'll reserve a seat in the other dining area.
The food was great; we both had the Asian Chicken Salad which was terrific. And the fried calamari appetizer during Happy Hour was only $5; a true bargain! Our waitress was terrific; we needed to get our meal fairly quickly to make a 6:15 movie. She took great care of us, delivered the tab early to expedite a quick exit and even gave us directions to the theater. All in all - a great find!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest new restaurant this yearIt was our first time and we'd heard good things. It exceeded our expectations. The menu is varied-from the simple to the exotic ... something for everyone in our party. My husband had the macaroni & cheese and the creamed kale side .. loved it .. I had the scallops which were exquisite. The halibut fish & chips were sweet, moist and delicious. We will be back ... soon and often. Best new restaurant this year and an unexpected find in Vancouver (We are from Portland).4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellent --Consistently excellent -- and one of the few places where happy hour can be enjoyed in the main dining room.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite place!

They are ALL so good at what they do! Just one suggestion for the 3:30-4:00 time:(it's probably when staff is coming on & getting acquainted with the new menu for the evening?) perhaps it would be a good idea to have 1 or 2 servers available for the dining room at that time? There have been 2 or 3 times when we have reservations for that time (generally dining rm) that we wait for 15-20 mins before we are greeted by a server. They are ALWAYS very accommodating and friendly - but sometimes have been unaware that there is anyone in the dining room. (perhaps it's the communication of the hostess to the servers?) We love every one of the hostesses, servers, water servers - so no criticism intended/just suggestion.12/29/2012 12:00:00 AMAlways first choice of happyAlways first choice of happy hour!
