Overall, the experience was not bad but it wasnt good as well. We had to wait an extra 20 minutes after reservations to get a seat. We were presented the menus and were left alone for 10 minutes to take a look at the menu. After choosing what we wanted from the dine-out menu, we had to wait almost 2 hours to get all our 3 courses. The first course that we got was tuna tar tar and pork belly. The tuna was decent - it had chips and tuna. Their pork belly, however, was absolutely delicious. The second course was flat iron steak and the rockfish. The flat iron steak was slightly tough and it was not the highlight of that dish - the squash puree was better than the steak. The rockfish wasn't bad but it was more on the bland side. The sunchokes were really hard to chew on and do not get the scallops, it's a total scam. You only get one small piece where they just sear both side. And finally, it came to the final course - the dessert. The dessert we chose was the cake. The chocolate silk cake was really dense and with everything we ate, it did not complete the meal for us. The cake was more like a fudge bar but it did compliment well with everything on the plate and the rum raisin ice cream was just a cream not an ice cream. If the food came more promoptly instead of 2 hours for 3 dishes and if the servers explained the courses and the highlights of each dishes, then I would say this is a great place to go to.
Overall it was so-so. For a 9pm reservation on Dineout ‘18 day 1, we were seated at 9.25 at a table near the main door. Our first course arrived at 10.40pm. No table bread, nothing. The high chairs are extremely uncomfortable, they are slippery and not fit for a 3 hour long meal.
Food was decent. Tasty but nothing extraordinaire.
1) My friend can’t eat eggs and dairy and they made those adjustments for her
2) My wedge salad was tasteless. The server was nice enough to notice that and brought me another dish.
3) Desert was the tastiest!!
Myself and my sister were staying in vancouver for the night and when i made reservations, i had requested that on the dessert to place a candle because it was my sister's birthday. Unfortunately that didn't happen. Additionally, having been seated on the communal table in the basement, we were able to see all the dishes ahead of time and our dessert did not look like the rest. The crackers were broken.
I think overall, getting a 3 meals for $40 was worth it and the ambiance was nice. The food was definitely above average. Must have been a busy night for the chefs. I would go there again but perhaps not make it a special occasion.
Dine put Vancouver is probably not a fair representation. Food was okay but not outstanding. Had to wait 20 minutes for previous seating to finish yet as soon as we paid the bill we were asked to leave. Not a great dining experience. May try it again on a regular night
Ambiance and service was great! We went during dine-out and the menu was underwhelming. Food delicious, however the portions were very small. Would definitely come back for their regular menu items, not for dine-out.
Everything was above and beyond which is really saying something considering it was the first night of Dine Out Van. I loved their menu layout for both cocktails and dine out - it was cute, concise and easy to understand exactly what I was getting. As someone who is weary of wine pairings it was great to see pairings that truly enhanced the wine and the dish rather than just being palletable. Our service was top notch and the kitchen was working hard. I liked that we could throw a 6 pack on to thank the kitchen. All in all would recommend. Good job!
the food and service were great but we suffered from the uncomfortable stools
Salty and bad food with high price.
I had high hopes for my meal as everything on the menu looked really good. We started with the poitinerary which was quite good. But unfortunately our meals were a disappointment. My husband got the scallop and pork belly dish which he thought was just OK and my friend and I both got the rockfish which was very bland. My other friend got the duck and he really liked it. The server was pleasant but took a long time to take our order and never checked on us to make sure the food was okay.
The ambiance was nice and the service was great. The food was tasty even though the meats were a bit too exotic for my tastes. However, the portions were very small and overpriced in my opinion.
