Vancouver Restaurant Reviews
Parthenon3080 West Broadway, Vancouver
Rude and indifferent staff
By cigar06 of vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, June 19, 2017 - 8:18pm [Dine in]

The soup and some of the lunch dishes are reasonable. Some of the staff at the deli are positively rude. I can't believe an owner would abdicate his customer service to employees with horrible attitude. The staff just don't care! I ordered some baklava. Three signs indicated "regular, rolls and chocolate. I asked for rolls. The grumpy little old woman scowled and said they were not rolls they were something else (incomprehensible). She was brimming with hostility. Why put the signs if the staff don't know what they are called. Another deli server was clearly upset that serving me was interfering with her other duties!! Customer service LAST!!!

This could be a good place but they need to replace the staff.

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant3888 Main Street, Vancouver
Expensive for what you get.

Food is expensive. Can feed several for the price of one person. Place is popular for weddings. Don't park where it says residents only, or you'll get towed. The restaurant is overrated. It's too pretentious. Just a reminder not to park in the residents area or you'll get ticketed.

Aussie Pie GuyWest Georgia St & Hamilton St, Vancouver
More like a meat stew instead of a meat pie
By Ieatmygreens of West Vancouver, (5 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, June 17, 2017 - 12:39am [Dine in]

I've bought pies each chance that I see the truck.
Over the past four or five years I've tried all but the salmon pie.
I skip the Skippy roo pie now.
I don't see another reason to buy a veggies pie again if they have any type of beef pie.
And the coast pie...June 2017 was the Aussie pie. But it was more of an Aussie stew in a paper bag.
I don't know what's happening to his product.. Maybe because it's gluten free..Maybe they were from the day before and heated fsrcto long over and over again. Maybe they were frozen at one time.
But after one bite...All the contents ozzed out of the top sides this collapsing the pie into a stew. I ended up with a bag full of gravy.
The price has not gone up..So like happens a lot.. The quality goes down.
Worse yet...When I confronted him.. He asked me if I enjoyed​ it.. No..No I didn't..And I didn't like his dismissive attitude. I hate feeling like I've been screwed over.

Sandbar Seafood Restaurant1535 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Girls eve at Sandbar
By Silvia P. of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, June 13, 2017 - 10:45am [Dine in]

We were thinking about a girls night out and Sandbar appeared to be the perfect choice! Danielle was so pleasant and attentive, our glasses were never empty. Each dish was worth to try and well presented. For starter we shared California roll and it was delicious! We also ordered Scallop & Prawn Jambalaya and Kung Pao Chichen Rice Bowl which were both nice to see and tantalizing to taste. The Scallop and Prawn Jambalaya was flavoured but not overly spicy.
The atmosphere and interior are unique, live music and dance floor after dinner.
We definitely recommend Sandbar!!

Bistro Pastis2153 W. 4th Ave, Vancouver
1st time French experience
By Yu Hua Huang of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, June 12, 2017 - 8:28pm [Dine in]

My friend Ruby and I went to Bisto Pastis today at 18:30pm
I ordered the daily soup and bouillabaisse de pastis. As my friend, Ruby, she ordered the soupe à l`oignon and sole meunière.
The food was really good! Especially, I loved the taste of the bouillabaisse de pastis and the side dish was astonishing.
The host greeted us kindly with smile and the server introduced the menu patiently also gave us suggestions.
The background music was beautiful with proper volume. Also, the light and indoor decoration was warm-hearted.
This was the first time we tried French restaurant and it was really nice.
Last but not least, the dessert, Lemon tart was awesome and Ruby ordered the melt chocolate she loved it.
I would definitely visit Bistro Pastis again in the future.

The entrance is clean and the way I stepped in the host comes to me immediately.
They asked if I have take reservation and then send me to my seat.
The server that help our order is very gently and can feel his passion, he introduce the menu and beverage very attentive and suggest their popular meal,
The whole service is out of my expectation, I didn't expect this all.
Not only the service but the food quality also.
The portion and taste is super excellent.
My order is 7 oz Fillet add shrimp and scallop oscar,
The steak taste really good, easy to bite and not rough,
the seafood let me excited also, make me feel that the meal deserve that price,
though is not cheap but it really worth to taste these food.
The dessert is delicious too, my dessert is mini fudge brownie, the brownie is warm and with cream and ice cream, the mix taste is great.
I think I will return back to celebrate someday next time.

Absolutely Disgraceful!! Raw Salmon, Could have been Dangerous!!Do Not Order From this Restaurant! !
By Nancy7 of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 9:41pm [Delivery]

Horrible experience, the first time my boyfriend ordered maple glazed salmon and they sent him the meal with just a hint of maple sauce  so it ws dry and no good to eat and when he called someone claiming he was the manager argued with him for about 10 minutes unwilling to give him a credit because the meal was not enjoyable.  Then he had to argue for him to give him the gst back. Second time it was fine then we ordered the same thing again and his salmon was raw and he took a bite out of it which could have been dangerous. They tell him they'll send him another one, so he sends the raw salmon back with the driver to prove his case and then don't include the garlic bread. When he asks the skip the dishes guy he says he doesn't control that.When he calls back the restaurant, they don't answer and I call from my cell phone they answer right away. Then my boy friend tells them how disappointed with them and they don't care, they just apologize and want to get off the phone. The funny thing is the two of us order very frequently atleast a couple times a month and this is  how they treat us. I would recommend not to order from this horribly run establishment that do not care if they serve undercooked meat and do nothing to try to satisfy thier customers!

Toddler size portions and microwaved food from containers
By Johns J. of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, May 6, 2017 - 4:29pm [Take-out]

I signed up just to post this. Will not be visiting this place again. We ordered a chicken shawarma wrap and chicken and falafel shawarma wrap. There was a family of 3 ahead of us. The portion of chicken on our orders were ridiculously small. It was literally a spoonful of chicken on the shawarma and falafel wrap. Everyone else around us watched in surprise and even laughed that this guy was actually serving us this. The previous time I ordered 2 lamb shawarma plates. The lamb which he used for our order had previously been put in a small container and microwaved before he split the tiny portion into our order. It tasted so bad and like it had been sitting out for a while. This was the last chance we gave this place. Never wasting our money here again. Such greedy people. Unbelievable.

THIS IS THE WORST PLACE EVER!!!! DONT EVER GO HERE!!!!!! I ordered food delivery and they forgot to deliver my soup and wonton. I called them to let them know but the driver did not want to make the trip back even though THEY ARE THE ONES WHO MADE THE MISTAKE!!!! I waited 45 minutes, I heard nothing, and my soup did not come. I contacted Just Eats since thats who I ordered from seeing as I had no luck. Apparently they told Just Eats that I was trying to get a refund out of them when all I wanted was the rest of my order. They REFUSED to even refund me the $5.50 for something I DIDNT EVEN GET!!!! When I called them to let them know how terrible their customer service was they HUNG UP ON ME. Yeah. WORST PLACE!!!!!! The food wasn't even good. Bad service. Bad food. Seriously do not support this restaurant.

Great Italian Restaurant at a AWESOME price!
By vancouverpiggie of burnaby (53 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 9, 2017 - 12:44am [Dine in]

This is probably one of the best bang for your buck italian restaurants in all of the greater vancouver regional district.

It's location is great - gas town.

It's price is very good when you factor in the freshness of the ingredients, taste and huge portions.

We came here tonight, party of 2.

The place is set up like a small, cozy brick cafe with a huge kitchen in the back due to the place also catering.

I assume because they cater, that allows them to provide fresh ingredients. Cheaper to buy in quantity.

This does not mean taste was sacrificed.

Everything is made IN HOUSE.

We ordered Gnocchi with Rustica Sauce, 3-kinds Ravioli (Mushroom, Spinach and Chicken) with Carbonara Sauce, Mixed Salad and Bean Vegetable Soup and ended the night with a chocolate brownie cake and tiramisu.

Gnocchi was chewie, great texture and fresh. The Rustica sauce was very flavorful, seasoned very well.

3-Kinds Ravioli was also very good, nothing much to say except very fresh and tasty.

The mixed salad was a delight. Most times, when you order mixed salads, it's just a few sad looking pieces of mixed leafy greens. This place tops it with cheese, long beans, cherry tomatos, roma tomatoes, asparagus - it's a party on a plate.

The bean soup was nice and thick - more like a hearty stew.

All this for only 67.00 and we had to pack up some stuff because we couldn't finish it all.

The waitresses are also super friendly and cute :)

Will be returning.

We ordered a 50th birthday chocolate cake but received a bland, 'milk chcolate,' buttery, salty, coffee tastingc cake...
By TrinityB of Vancovuer BC Canada (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, April 7, 2017 - 3:37pm [Dine in]

Unfortunately, the cake was terrible. It was for a 50th birthday (very special opportunity); we went there because we had been referred and our normal baker (Fratelli's) was away on holidays. We felt very disappointed in the cake, the service from head office staff and then the owner, afterward. It was bland, didn't taste like chocolate. It tasted more like butter, salt and a little bit of coffee. When we complained they justified it by saying they use milk chocolate, not dark chocolate, butter has salt in it and asked us if we were Chinese (?)...said they hadn't had a complaint in 41 years. So, apparently the take away is, if we were Chinese we would have been happy. We asked for our money back because we would never return and they said no.

Well, there's no more Pho Hoang. I really miss it! They made the best Bun Bo Hue in Metro Vancouver and they always had the best portions for your pho and very delicious soup! I always feel full after eating there! Now this new restaurant is overpriced for Vietnamese food, their portions are small, and the quality is average. The only thing they have going for them are the restaurant decor and their fantastic service! Hopefully, they can survive with that!

I tried this restaurant because I was in the area yesterday. It was the same as any other Vietnamese restaurants such as same portions and their soup were average. The only thing I didn't understand is why they charge $1 for extra bean sprouts when other Vietnamese restaurants do not? Other than that, nothing special.

Overpriced pho
By chopcritic of Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 3, 2017 - 9:26am [Dine in]

I heard some great reviews from a friend, so I decided to try it. But when I looked at their menu, their Pho's were completely overpriced for Vietnamese food! Maybe the locals in Kerrisdale would pay for this price, but people from other areas would flinch. Who would pay for a large Pho which is $2 more than a small Pho? Other Vietnamese restaurants would charge $0.5 to $1, but I have never seen $2 more for a large! When I received my large Pho expecting to be something special, all I find are the portions are the same as a small which I saw someone eating on the next table and just more SOUP! And the flavours of their pho soup are just borderline average. I can eat at any other Pho restaurants for far less a price and eat the same type of Pho. Just so you know a small is $9 and large $11. So disappointing!

Not inexpensive but worth the extra cost
By Nighthawk of Delta [Ladner] (22 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 5:27pm [Dine in]

The place is not cheap but for a non-Jewish guy who has lived in Montreal and Toronto and as well spent time in NYC I have found the food outstanding from deli to baked goods.

And actually, I love the service; the management is not only friendly and of great assistance but also highly intelligent. Do I wish the cost of a meal were a little less expensive? Absolutely......but I love the place and I am willing to pay bit more for quality and service as well as to support a business owned by people whom I understand are worth my patronage.

The service used to be very good, but not so much now. The pastries are as good as any in the city, but I'm not willing to stand around and wait when I can go across the street and get really good service at Transylvania, which has a different but equally good selection. I wonder what happened, the staff seems to have changed.

Hmmmm........I wonder if people wash their hands???
By maggiemia of East Vancouver, BC (27 Reviews)

I was craving a Peanut Buster Parfait.....went to the one on Kingsway on my way back home.....I usually go to the one in N. BBy carlton square?

Seems like a nice cozy place when I went inside....saw a man at the cashier first...then he went into the back and it looks very dark...not enough light....needs to be brighter....then I was thinking about getting chicken fingers with fries to go also....but I do not trust if the man or whoever is in the back washed their hands after handling the money.....and money is very very dirty....

The lady that took over....do not know if it was the wife....very pleasant and she knew what she was doing....efficient.....
when I got home I put the parfait in the freezer because I then wanted to eat a sandwich first....it wasn't as good as I remembered whenever I get this dessert....

Just I hope they put more light so its nice and bright and wash wash wash those hands.....please!!!!!!!!!!
Show the people what you did....put a small sink in the front for the employees.....I think they were the owners for this franchise.....

Good Pizza but......
By maggiemia of East Vancouver, BC (27 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, March 5, 2017 - 10:23pm [Dine in]

this was my second time coming to this place....the pizza is good but I always look up at the cooks...just in the front there where they are making pizza only...the kitchen you can not see...its a very small small place and I think it opens at 5pm and we went on a Tues. nite....four of us...
so no long line up...just beware of this...long line ups....

I looked at the two guys making the pizza and saw the one guy touch his nose as if he wanted to clean it or pick it.......only stating what I see....and I hope they read this comment so they don't do it again. I think he had dark hair and beard....? It was in February that we went.

I do not usually trust people in restaurants at all....especially Asians.... me being Italian born here.....they are some Italians that are dirty also.....but do not trust people and friends at home....I am a little ocd....but sometimes as you know you have to close one eye....

the pasta that nite was awful...too much al dente...and not enough sauce at all...too dry....
the salad was too big for the plate and bacon on it....the appie with the cold cuts was ok....you want antipasto then probable go to the true Italian restaurants like L'Artista...mind you its been a while....I really miss Al Forno in Gastown years back....so good....the pizza brick oven like now....but I tell ya....it was the Best in those days in Vancouver.

I don't believe in tipping and I do tip...I am not cheap but I just don't believe in it too much....I think its like a another meal there......from $10 and up....
I was reading some of my old comments and Moulin Rouge Rest. did close down...thank God and Cheers is gone....the Sweet Cherubim has changed their menu I believe, so its easier to read.

Too bad that Dine Here does not have just comments sections....
All in All Via Tevere is a good place for food....I only recommend the Pizza.....its the same dough I believe that Famoso, Lombardo's, Marcello's and all these new places for pizza brick oven style uses....type 00 flour from Naples....
I just hope the rest. reads this and tells the people behind the counter not to touch themselves and put cameras in the kitchen so the owners can see what goes on....if the staff are being dirty!!!! This goes for all the Resturants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
