Great spot in the west end. Lots of energy. Lots of young and mature. Our waitress was excellent. Tentative , communicative and helpful. Lots at our table had the short ribs and raved. I had the chicken-fabulous. The Brussel sprouts were the best ever- deep fried - but still awesome. Do not pass up the carpachio.

I called ahead to ensure that my dietary restrictions could be accommodated, and and they were with no problem. Turns out it was the chef who picked up the phone! When we reserved on line, we were able to advise of my allergies as well...so when we got to the restaurant they were fully aware of what I could and... More

Many brunches here over the last couple of years - consistently excellent. Friendly and prompt service, quality ingredients with west coast variety, large portions at very good price points, and a bustling spot for all. A delicious, great time.

Went for breakfast and had the Chorizo Frittata. No complaints.. I wasn't wowed by the dish, but it was a good breakfast. Excellent, friendly service, and a nice place to people-watch on Denman.

We also dined here using the Socialshopper coupon. It is a small neighborhood place that apparently has awesome live Jazz nights on Sundays (no reservations accepted). We dined here on a Saturday. The food was very good, the sangria OK. Braised short ribs were delish, the Potato Crusted Pacific Cod, though cooked very well was lacking in the amount of... More

Here's our favorite hang-out for our first night in Vancouver. This is the place where the locals get-together and enjoy the special priced drink of the day. We look forward to mussel's, frits, and veggies to go with the special!

My wife and I took advantage of the social shopper deal ($35 credit for $70 worth of food). We really enjoyed the food and experience. The only two negatives were: the loud music which by the way they turned down at my request and the Americano (too watered down); I wasn't charged for this. The appetizer (Mussels) was great. The...
