“Good food, poor service”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

This review should be better than it's going to be. I went to the Yaletown Brewing Company with some friends prior to a concert on Sunday night. We arrived 1 and 1/2 hours prior to the the time we had to leave and we barely got away on time. In fairness, it was pizza special night and it was fairly busy, but we had an unbelievably hard time getting our waitress's attention. Three times, we had to ask bus staff to get her to come to our table. When she arrived, she was unapologetic and marginally helpful.

Why is this a shame? Because the food, the beer and the price would have normally led to an excellent review. The Sunday pizza special offers $9 pizzas and $4 dollar beers, which is an excellent deal. Both the beer and the pizza were to everyone's satisfaction.

Such a pity that an indifferent service attitude could lead to an indifferent review, when it should be glowing. When I read so many other reviews complaining about the service, it made me think that the management are happy with their profit margins and feel they can withstand a little bad press. That's short term thinking in Vancouver's competitive restaurant market. When you've got advantages like location, menu and product, you should complement them with excellent service, not rest on your laurels.

Great value at around $15 for 7 small beers. We had great fun trying to guess the brew.
