My girlfriend and I were in Yaletown looking for somewhere just to chill out, have a couple of drinks and eat some nachos and wings . Unfortunately we came across this place. In hindsight I should have gone with my gut feeling when we walked in this place and turned back round again but instead decided that the almost complete darkness inside would be bearable if the food was good. Now don't get me wrong, I am all for mood lighting but I can only guess the mood in particular that they are going for is "sub-terranean". I have never been in a restaurant or bar so dark in my life and we were in there at about 1pm! I can only assume that they keep it that dark so that customers cannot see the awful fare that they attempt to pass off as food as it is placed in front of them! So we ordered as above, a plate of nachos with chilli and some chicken wings. Now I know what you are thinking, "How is it possible to mess that order up?" I would be of similar opinion had I not witnessed it first hand myself. The nachos arrived minus the chilli. I attempted to pull a nacho from the plate and only proceeded to lift the entire contents of the plate clear off by about 3-4 inches!! If nachos have never been overdone before this place has perfected it! I called the waitress over and pointed out that the chilli was missing and again demonstrated my new found ability to lift the entire contents clean off the plate. She removed the plate and went off to the kitchen without really saying anything. The kitchen was about 10 feet behind where we sat and it was possible to hear everything and see the silhouettes of the 2 employees working in there. No sooner had the waitress taken the nachos back into the kitchen an argument ensued between her and the 2 "chefs" over what exactly was wrong with the food. This resulted in the waitress exclaiming at the top of her voice "I don't know! Don't blame me!!" She then returned to the table and apologised for the lack of chilli. She then asked a question that still perplexes me; "How would you like your nachos done?" I should have replied "medium rare" as my girlfriend later suggested but instead told her to forget about it and just remove them from the bill which in fairness to her she did without question. The wings were not much better and in terms of meat content and taste (they were supposed to be the hottest ones) were pretty much non-existent. The food is not that cheap either considering what gets put in front of you.There are so many better places in the same area and I can only urge you to avoid this place like the plague but if you do decide to try it for yourself, take a torch!
