“Nice return visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Went for pre concert dinner and decided when there to take our time sharing a selection of appetizers with no entree. Appy special was 6 spot prawns per plate done in a garlic sauce. Our first for this season and they were cooked perfectly sauced nicely so did not over power the delicate prawns. Chicken livers were great as were the mussels and salad. No complaints on the food and we felt all plates were reasonably priced.
Service was very attentive and good. It has been a couple of years since we were last here and we were glad we visited again. Is walking distance to both Rogers Arena and BC Place Stadium.

“Hamilton Grill Street - Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We had a table for 8 people. The service was beyond what was expected. The server was very attentive and not in your way. Two of us had the pork chop, with gnocci, and were very impressed. Another choice was halibut with beet risotto, was impressive also. Stuffed chicken was also recommended. Everyone was ravy about the food and service.

“Rich and heavy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Wednesday evening 7.00pmish. A number of tables occupied. Some delay before greet. No offer to take coats - hung them ourselves. Server polite - not offhand but not quite cheerful enough - a fine line but not quite right. She was knowledgeable enough to hint subtly that my food choice might not be ideal - in fact, more of this later, it worked. Wine - expensive for what is on offer ($45 for an $18.50 bottle), list is short which is probably a good point. To digress - why do restaurants insist on the testing ritual with screwtop wine? Starters - chicken livers, pretty close to perfect, a good portion; garlic prawns - very good, a very good portion; in both cases one starter could well have been shared between two, Mains - Pacific Halibut, a touch over cooked served with a good helping of very rich risotto (seemed expensive at $28); steak - served as ordered,with mash and veg, not perfect but not bad. Bill - 'suggested' tips ranging from 15% up (of the total including tax}, paid a genuine 15% which didn't seem to go down too well. Left feeling very full indeed. Would I go again - yes, certainly. Do I recommend it - again yes, but be careful with your order, the food is heavy.

“Meh too...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Great service! Food was OK. If a man had to eat the Halibut I think they would have still been hungry afterwards. Others that I was with were OK with the meals. High price to pay for what you get. Maybe the steak would have been a better pick!
