Food was cold, service was poor - waited at table for 15 minutes before even being acknowledged - and it wasn’t busy. Nicest thing was the actual restaurant building. Nicely done.

We had a beautiful spot on the patio, right near the water. Our server was friendly and the food was great. Would definitely order the chicken & waffles again!

The view from the patio of downtown Vancouver across the water was stunning on beautiful Labour Day. All hostesses and servers followed Covid 19 protocols and tables were spaced far enough apart. Food was good and the fries that accompanied the burgers were nice and crispy and seasoned just right. We liked that the menu had lots of variety. Definitely a patio worth visiting to enjoy the view while having your meal.

Great location and drink menu but prices were a bit high overall compared to size of portion for food. Also, we noticed some minor service issues as well as price gouging wherever possible (i.e. $4 for extra kids scoop of ice cream for my daughter even though it was pretty much a half scoop of vanilla!)

Stopped by for a 5 month reunion with friends. We showed up early and were seated immediately. We enjoyed some happy hour appetizers and wonderful conversation. While the TVs were a little loud and it took several hints and finally we had to ask for our check, overall it was a pleasurable experience.

The deck and view are amazing, and the service is good, but the food was tasteless. We both ordered the tuna poke bowl and it was BORING! Not good value either at $19.
Too many great restaurants in the area to bother going back again.

Understand there was a recall on red peppers so no quesadilla or short rib sandwich. I was looking forward to trying the quesadilla.
Disappointed when I asked if it could be made just without them and my server told me no, they are made ahead of time and then heated up. Didn’t even go check with the kitchen to see if they could make one fresh for me. Just nope.
I’ve made quesadillas before, I’ve made them in a professional kitchen during a busy dinner service, it’s not that hard and wouldn’t have taken long to put one together fresh for me. Also I was going to ask for no cilantro and extra banana peppers so they would have probably had to make one fresh anyways.
And it wasn’t so busy they could t take the time to make one.
Other than that, the wings I ordered were tasty.

Would have appreciated the server informing us of the cost of the glass of wine along with the recommendation of a particular kind we asked about. It was a bit of a surprise when we saw the bill. Other than that is was a wonderful evening.
