We ate here shortly after arriving into Vancouver after a long flight. We were browsing the menu, trying to decide whether to eat here, when the hostess offered us some homemade doughnuts. After we decided to take the plunge, the server immediately brought us a complimentary taste of smoothie. After we ordered, the server and a manager came out and... More

We were seated right away, with such friendly staff members. Erenee our server was incredible. Mentioned it was my moms birthday and she took great care of "momma" the whole evening. The food is unreal, awesome portion sizes, quick service and taste is out of this world! Highly recommended for any time of the day or occasion!

From the excellent selection of kebab-like satays to the steaks and pastas, this restaurant had it all. Upbeat vibe, music, and erenee the most vibrant waitress we have ever had. She is a walking talking advertisement for this company. Has our next week's worth of Global restaurants recommended and planned out for us. We wish she worked for us! Great... More

A bunch of mates and I came in and got seated on the patio. Was swiftly surprised on how fast we had literally just sat down and our waitress Nikki had approached us. She was so lovely and gave us great ideas on drinks for our sunny adventure in Vancouver. After having a couple drinks with happy hour we led... More

I sat on the patio and my server Nicki was great!! She was so attentive and sweet to our whole table, we never waited for anything and she was so prompt. Food was delicious! No complaints about the whole experience.

I had the most amazing beef tenderloin here last week! Deliciously sizzling dark flavourful crust, perfectly cooked edge to edge on the inside, tender and juicy with big bold beefy flavour. The atmosphere is incredibly friendly and the staff was super professional. Ereene (sp?) our server/hostess was such a delightful woman, her recommendations were spot on. Great experience overall :)

So we come here like all the time, this last time was especially good. We showed up at like ten with a group of a million people wanting a spot on the patio. It was a packed Saturday night. Another resto would have looked at us and laughed. Erenee, our lovely server, made us wait about fifteen minutes and whipped... More

First time here was for lunch on a Friday afternoon with my friend. It was very busy but we were seated quickly. I had the pesto chicken burger and it was very good, my friend had the tacos. The outdoor patio was very nice but a bit crowded. I would go back again to check out the inside and the... More

We came to this restaurant on our hotel's recommendation and we were not disappointed. Our server erenee immediately made us feel at home and recommended a selection of wines we wouldn't normally go for, but wow they were all 50% off on wine Wednesday! She paired our wine with excellent dishes and recommended another few restaurants for us to explore.... More
