“Service and Food Disgraceful”
Reviewed May 12, 2010

We went on a weekday for lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. We called ahead as the friend is wheelchair-bound and we needed to see if the restaurant is accessible. There is an elevator and the employee met us to allow us to use the elevator. We were seated at a window table with a very nice view. We ordered a starter of soup - it was brought to us only lukewarm. The waitress was in such a hurry that she only took one of the soups back to be reheated - we had asked that they both be reheated.. guess she didn't hear. When she returned with one hot soup, she almost grumbled aloud as she took the second soup back.
The coffee was not hot. The quiches were brown on the outside, but runny in the inside and we worried that the egg wasn't cooked. We asked them to be further cooked - the chef sent word to us via a different waitress that if we ordered another quiche it would be cooked the same and indeed the egg was cooked... Beside us was a table of about 10 women drinking several bottles of wine and the owner visited their table at least three times and never said a word to us - although I am sure he was aware of our displeasure.
When we left, nobody helped us to get the wheelchair, nor to open any door so we could exit for the elevator. They didn't charge us for the quiches, but the meals we ordered after were definitely substandard. I will not go back again and would never recommend this to anyone. With so many wonderful restaurants in North Vancouver, why settle for less than mediocre?

“Super Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed September 4, 2009

Went over to North Vancouver and the market which is better than Granville island market and had a super Brunch of eggs Benny in the Bistro. The view is super and the food excellent with good BC wines also. Well worth the trip on the Sea Bus.

Great views of the city. I enjoyed their "moules & frites" (mussels and fries)... and Belgian beers. My husband liked the steak & frites too!
