I ate here twice on this trip. Kentucky Burgoo (17) is a sort of stew and comes in a dish, unaccompanied by anything else. I had it for lunch and It was OK but the constituents were cut up too fine. On the second (dinner) visit I had Beef Bourgiognon (18) which I preferred. With either one you'll probably want... More

Delicious comfort food! Everything is very yummy. Their drinks are great as well. The only flaw is how tiny this place is.

We stopped in at Burgoo between sporting events: the BC Lions game at BC Place and the Vancouver Canadians Baseball game at Nat Bailey. Burgoo is always busy; we were fortunate that a rainy day had transformed to brilliant sunshine just as we arrived and they opened up the patio. Regardless, the food is always worth a wait at this...

This restaurant is a sure thing if classic comfort food is what you're looking for. I've been many times in the last 4 years tried many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. The cheese fondues are great share plates, the Sangria in the summer is so refreshing, last night a few of us shared a couple desserts... More

This a beautiful location, highly recommended by locals. The staff is super friendly, ambiance is wonderfully warm and comfortable. The menu is diverse and lists the originating country of each menu item - which was refreshing, informative and entertaining. This place is highly recommended and well as regarded by locals. We went there based on recommendations. Comfort food and comfort... More

Don't expect fine dining, just lots of comfort food choices. It's crowded so get here early. I wanted to like this more than I actually did however. My husband ordered the ratatouille and it was just very ordinary; nothing special. Outside patio is wonderful when the weather is nice.

The menus is fairly eclectic - with inspiration coming from far and wide. Portions are generous and the food can be best classified as hearty. Service was great - quick and with a smile . Prices very reasonable and modest.

It was a beautiful warm day, people were sitting on the patio at the restaurant but inside all of the windows were closed. It was uncomfortably warm and smelled really bad inside. The wait for a patio table was quite long so we sat inside, we should have either waited to sit outside or chosen another restaurant. The staff were... More

We went for brunch and had soup and salad each on the recommendation of a regular we met at the door. Choice of soup and sandwich. I had the Borscht soup and meatball sandwich. Delicious and good value. Excellent service. Will go again.

We've stopped in twice, late on a Sunday and not been disappointed. Go around 9 when the line-up dies down. I've had the awesome onion soup and the Beef Bourguignon - both were rich and flavourful and had a home-made taste. The room is small and bustling with a convivial atmosphere - no laptops here. The staff are super friendly... More
