Q4 Ristorante on Broadway
Top NotchThe interior is at the same time formal, friendly, and elegant. A shame there are two TV's in the bar/entry area. Service was very good - knowledgable, non-fussy, to the point, attentive and got on with the job. Food was excellent. The halibut was perfect - moist and flaky. The gnocci with the duck confit was surprisingly fresh because of the lemon used. The veal short ribs were not appreciated by our friend but my husband tried them and thought they were cooked perfectly. Not too dry but still fell off the bone. The vegetables were cooked too perfection fresh, and crispy.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality food and great serviceTook my girlfriend here for lunch after her graduation at UBC.

In fact this is the second time I have had just the best waiter and it was two different people. It is fun to sit in the bar area and order appetizers if you want a lighter meal3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a most enjoyable evening.We had a most enjoyable evening. The restaurant was not busy so the noise level was minimal. Will return soon. The food was delicious.
I have one comment: I think some form of protectors should be affixed to the bottom of the chair legs, so that when sliding dining chairs in and away from tables there is no scraping sound.
Our waiter was excellent and I especially liked his descriptions of the menu items. He did not sound like he was reciting - he sounded like he knew what he was talking about (seldom found these days).
Can't wait to return! Thank you.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
