    Ordered medium rare steak and it came out well done. Normally don't like to do this, but well done is not enjoyable, so I sent it back. Got the second steak and it was medium well. Cook needs to learn to cook steak better. Waitress was great.

    Our server Brett was outstanding! Probably some of the best service I have ever had for a large group - there was 9 of us. I would ask to sit in his area again.

    We waited for more than 45 minutes to get our food, our waitress did not offer us water, but another waiter that was just passing gave us the water and apologized. The restaurant was not even that busy. We were lucky that we order a couple of appetizers at the moment we ordered our drinks, so we got those after 20 minutes then once we got our drinks we ordered the rest of the food, and that took 45 minutes ... very poor service, so disappointed.

    Our table was not ready, gave us a patio table instead - then informed us that they would be closing patio within one hour of our arrival. However, i am so happy my pooch is welcomed in the patio.

    After now t being able to see each other for the past couple of years, one our friend’s birthday was coming up, so we surprised her with most of our little group in attendance. It was fantastic to be able to get together again. Our server was so understanding, she was attentive to our need to reacquaint and just talk. She was patient, we took forever to read the menu. But she kept our coffees warm! The food was served in a very timely manner and was delicious! We really enjoyed the afternoon and the ability to see each other in person again. Thank you for not rushing us and making us feel welcomed.

    This patio is one of the best in Vancouver with a beautiful view of False Creek and the mountains beyond. But definitely book ahead if you plan to go on a sunny summer day otherwise your chance of getting a table is low.

    Service was terrible. We had to wait a long time to get our food and they forgot one of our guests is order. We had to wait another 40 minutes to get that order- but one of the head waiter overheard us and informed the missed order will not be charged. The visa print out was faded out. This was one of our favourite go to restaurant.

    Food and service were both excellent. The seawall outdoor location was wonderful, on what felt like the first summer evening. Our only negative thought: if we had to sit indoors, we would have left as soon as we arrived, as the indoor noise was deafening, even walking through to the outdoor dining.

    Went for a date night with my wife, first time at this location. I ordered a chicken burger, was not good had to send it back. It was deep fried way too much. My wife ordered a steak that was good. Our waitress brought out our appetizer, but the small plates she gave us where dirty. Also the Mens and Woman washroom was dirty and really sticky floors. My wife had been too this location before awhile ago and had no problems. But most likely we will not be returning or recommending this location to others. It’s to bad because I was looking forward to eating at this location, since it’s in a really nice area. Hope this review helps
