“Every bad review I read was spot on”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

We made reservations a week ahead of time for 5:30 on a Saturday night. The night of the Paul McCartney concert. When I made the reservation, they even asked if we were there for the concert...so they were well aware that it would be a busy, busy night. We arrived 15 minutes early, they didn't have our reservation, but allowed us inside (there was a huge line outside) and were allowed to sit in a corner until a table for 4 became available. They offered us drinks, which took over 1/2 hr to arrive....after reminding them of our order. We finally got a table around 6:30...no big deal, we had plenty of time and the pizza we had was pretty good....though nothing to write home about. The real problem I had was..this place KNEW how busy it would be, but it appeared to have taken them ALL by surprise. Ah well....try the Back Forty across the street...just a bar with bar food...but they were much better prepared.

“Nice place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Not much available on concert nights, bar food only unless you made resos a few weeks ago. BBQ available, but you had to go outside to get it.....not the greatest. Food in the bar was very good as well as the staff!

“Reasonable prices - good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is a classic middle of the road restaurant attached to a downtown hotel. Compared to competing establishments, Zacahry's offers a varied menu at reasonable prices. We had not scanned prior reviews before selecting this during walk on a recent visit to Vancouver and were a little skeptical when we were able to get a drop in table around 6:30pm on a Saturday night. However, service was friendly and efficient and all aspects of our order delivered in a timely fashion. Despite other comments re: quality of the food, we found ours to be on par with expectations relative to price and style.

“disappointing food, awkward service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Not sure what the motivation is here for the servers, but two of them managed to run around disappointing people and giving little doses of attitude when someone asked for something. I regret to report that the food is also below average, despite the prices and the lovely descriptions on the menu. Also, not a very pleasant atmosphere. Not recommended.

“Menu looks good, food not so much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

The food was less than average. The service was terrible. We ordered the special and it was not great. The rice was not quite cooked and the asparagus was burnt. The prices were terrible for what you got. Our waitress forgot our drinks and we had to ask a few times. Also, we had to ask for silverware as there was one set missing. We asked for a dessert menu, and the cook said oh yeah we have dessert, but it is not on a menu. He then brought out,4 cookies in a small bowl. They were hard and terrible. There were 4 of us and none of us enjoyed our dinner.
