Great calamari, SUPERB house salad! Salmon dish & lobster linguine were terrific, as was the service. This was our first visit to Vancouver, & we’d definitely dine here again on the next visit!

Sketchy (but sincere) service. The wait staff is either extremely new or the communication between kitchen and staff needs some work. Items kept being delivered to us that we did not order (we noticed this happening to other tables as well) and we had one order delivered that was not correct. We also had vodka martinis that were incorrectly made - the bartender squeezed lemon juice into the glasses with the vodka. Sorry, not a martini. One of us had the roasted cauliflower soup which was bland although a generous serving. The calamari was very good. Nicely seasoned and good portion. Caesar salad was crisp and fresh (although it was delivered with a large piece of salmon which we did not order). Braised lamb shank was quite good. Excellently prepared (moist, great seasoning, nice veggies). Catch of the day (halibut) was generous and flavorful. The roasted salmon was also really good. Somehow, fresh (but burnt) cookies were delivered to the table next to us and then were delivered to our table and the server wasn't sure why the cookies were presented (errors in the order?) - turned out the table next to us also had order problems so we shared the (burnt) cookies with them as community sympathy. The food is really quite good but the staff needs to get on board. Nice folks but they all looked confused.

It was our first time at this restaurant. The food was quite good, but our server might have been the least friendly server I've ever had. She just seemed like she would rather be doing something else. I would potentially go back because of the location and the food.

Visited on May 10, 2019 for lunch with 2 other people (so party of 3) – it took over an hour to get our meals. There was a party of 8 seated near us and it seemed like making those meals brought the kitchen to its knees. Of the 3 meals, one was good (pasta and lobster); the quinoa bowl that I had desperately needs help in the flavour department – not sure the buttermilk dressing does anything for it. The roasted cauliflower was so dry, I asked for olive oil. What I really wanted to ask for was (in addition to the olive oil): balsamic vinaigrette, black olives, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese to add some flavour to the quinoa bowl. The third person (our birthday guest) had the hanger steak special and when the server put his dish down, I caught a whiff of what I thought was meat going bad. I was waiting to see if he would say anything but he did not – it was very awkward. Also, the water they serve is room temperature – it was a hot day so I thought about asking for ice but I just couldn`t be bothered as I was already so annoyed about the delay in getting our meals. My wife wouldn`t go back, but I'd give it another go to be fair.

Food was excellent. Started off with the calamari appetizer which was great. My husband had the 8 oz steak and it was the most tender piece of meat and cooked to perfection. My daughters and I had the salmon and sable fish and they were both very good. We were really happy with all our meals.
Service was great also.

Food was ok, served quickly. Lambshank was missing flavour.

Service though was deplorable. We had a trainee walk up and start serving us water. No hellos from anyone, no specials, introductions to the menus. When asked for a Zinfandel, the response was “...like to eat?” Wasn’t once served wine, had to pour out wines ourselves. Main course meals were taken away, not asked how they were.

Used to go here now and then but there’s so many other places I can go to for chinois prawns!
