Very slow service with slight attitude. Mediocre food in small portions. We will not be returning.
Lovely Sunday brunch with a friend visiting from out of town. Good food, great value!
Great as always. Our favourite restaurant in Vancouver. Fabulous brunch and love Gabriel Hasselbach playing Saturday nights
The food was delicious but tapas was small and fries for steak frites was three fat fries
Tapas are small, but reasonably priced. Charred octopus was a standout: baby octopus charred to tender perfection with a lovely romesco sauce whose touch of sweetness complemented the octopus' smokiness very well. Mushroom pate toasts were delicately flavoured but still tasty. Heirloom cherry tomato salad was bursting with fresh flavours. Seared tuna on vermicelli was a little disappointing -- 5 tiny pieces of tuna with a rub that was a little too salty, but not much flavour. Prawns were also a little disappointing -- four thin slices of prawn rather than whole ones, also not much flavour, although the peanut sauce with it was delicious. Chorizo toasts were topped with lots of matchstick slices of chorizo, and the tomato-based spread was nice. Overall very good though, and great fun sitting on the patio in the warm summer evening.
Great location with live music and reasonable prices.
Our server was outstanding, table was great, music was a lovely surprise as we didn't know they had live music but sadly the food was less than desirable. Sadly we wouldn't go back to eat which is too bad because we loved the ambiance.
My local eatery and never disappoints .
Food delicious and they try had to cater for eaters with restrictions.
Friendly service and wonderful location!
Really disappointed with the food. I had heard good things but the eggs benny was terrrible. It also took 45 minutes to be served our brunch and I was forced to send mine back as the eggs were mush. The other food on the plate was sparse and not enjoyable either. The mimosa were good, that was the highlight and the view is great.
Had purchased Groupon. Well got Groupon service and quality. Definitely wouldn't pay full price there. Cold potatoes, luke warm eggs benedict and sub par service.
The portion is small, and they raised the price for the firework night. And they also removed their wine deal ($33/bottle) from their shelves without updating their website.
A great way to try lots of different things. The view was fantastic from the outdoor patio. Our server was very friendly and helpful too. The only down side to eating outdoors was that we did not hear much of the music from inside that sounded great too.
Delicious tapas. Small dishes for sharing. Great location, relaxing views. Slow service but we were not in a hurry
The food was great, although the service seemed a little disjointed and slow.
Overall, our experience at this location was great. The view was perfect for a warm summer brunch. The service was a little bit slow at times, but understandable since I got the impression that our server was new. The food presentation was very nice and the flavours were definitely there. I wish the portions were a little bit larger, but I suppose the prices were quite comparable to other competitors. Highly recommend!
Though the restaurant was busy I found the servers were excellent in making sure our glasses were always filled and that we had everything we needed.
Food is good , amazing Sea view ! Atmosphere is great, we enjoyed a lovely brunch!
We had a Groupon for brunch....the service was quick, the food was delicious and the patio was lovely with a nice view and people watching. My only complaint would be the coffee...had a latte and double espresso...my latte wasn't very hot, actually was more lukewarm...and my husband's espresso was wattery and not strong enough :(
The experience was very enjoyable, I had the omelet which was basically a thin egg crepe ! Friend had the salmon benny, was very good .
Black stone eggs benny was great, also recommend this for the ocean views and bottomless mimosas at brunch!
An honest review here: ambience and location were great, staff was friendly. Service was slow. My eggs Benedict also had a big chunk of egg shell in it so I told the manager. He immediately apologized and asked if there was anything else he could do for us. It was on a Groupon, so he ended up not charging us the remaining tax or tips.
Food quality was not the best and certainly not worth the full $18 price tag. Go if you have a Groupon though. One last note... I had an upset stomach right after so go at your own discretion.
Eggplant dish was extremely overpriced, was pathetic is size and was a limp blob of goo!
We had a wonderful time here. Everything was absolutely perfect. and we will be back !
My partner and I have been here 4 or 5 times now and have always enjoyed ourselves...the service is friendly and attentive - the music is always good - the tapas are tasty and the view of people enjoying biking and strolling the seawall with a backdrop of boats moored in False Creek is quintessential Vancouver.
Expect to pay a lot if you want to have a resonable dinner. I asked for some sliced baguette with my muscles and fries dish they charged me $3 for 3 pieces. The waitress was not educated at all on the menu and portion sizes very misleading. Menu is very thin for selection and over priced in my opinion. Looks like they recently over hauled the menu from what it used to be. Expect to pay a lot for tiny portions.
I had to give it a 3 star for overall experience, because it took them almost 1 hour to get our food out, which was a bit annoying because we were very hungry. The food was good, but I felt like it was not served to us right after it was cooked. When the food came, it did not feel that hot.
Change of chef since last summer and food was very disappointing....meagre portions, cold, too much salt. Beware of seagull droppings when seated outside!!
This nice little restaurant seated right in front of the waters is a beautiful place to dine. Whether by yourself with a good book or with friends, the owner and staff are very friendly and will try to accommodate your every need. Will definitely come back!
Wonderful start w/a healthy smoothie shooter. Brunch was simply delicious esp w/the "endless" mimosas as dictated on our coupon!
The vegetarian bennys were so good. The brie added that extra little touch. French toast had the consistency I like, which is a bit "soggy" still inside.
All in all I would definitely come back and highly commend the restaurant on their food and service.
The menu was overpriced, portions were very small and some menu items not prepared as described.
Was the main chef away that day? Who knows but they need to learn a few good dishes before they can lure me back.
Our waiter was very good and enjoyed the overall ambiance.
Great location on the seawall. Live jazz was a bonus. Tried all of the small tapas plates along with two of the medium tapas plates, ribs, mussels and fries. Fried cauliflower, calamari and mussels were exceptional. Service was spotty and inattentive, plates ordered together did not always arrive at the same time, made advance reservations but on arrival were informed patio seating was full.
Awful food. Awful service. Hands down worst dining experience.
The location couldn't be better for a sunny brunch by the water! Again, this was another great-value find through Groupon for a restaurant I hadn't heard of and I will definitely return. You can tell the owner/manager really cares about people having a good experience at the restaurant and was very quick to help correct an error in our order. The food was very tasty and we all enjoyed our meals. Many gluten free options for the Celiac and the bottomless mimosas are awesome!
Owner came to our table and told us to essentially stop talking and listen to the music!!!
Fantastic upscale spot by the water. Delicious food and pleasant wait staff. Prices are a little higher than average but the food and ambience is worth it.
Way overpriced. In Vancouver, any venue with the formula "tapas bar" is a sure sign for a total rip-off. No exception here. If you ever go there, be sure to eat until your stomach skin cracks BEFORE you enter. Or be ready to spend a month value of your food budget. Ex.: 4 slices of white bread: $4, a quarter of a cup of white rice noodle with 3 tiny bits of tuna: $8, 140ml of a standard red wine: $11. The sight-seeing is nice; it comes with a price.
There was a 1.5 hour wait for our brunch & the order was wrong when it arrived. The food was decent & the service was appreciated
I waited over an hour for my eggs benedict. The food was below mediocre, you'd expect hot foods if you've waited that long but nope, my English muffin was as solid as a rock - I couldn't even cut into it and my potatoes were burnt. Service was nonexistent, I had to chase servers down for drinks refill. Won't go back.
A perfect sharing meal for two
Delicious as always
