i've been two times and they were both good, well... nothing disappointing. it met my expectations.

only problem was the first time we were outside and it was fucking cold and there were not heaters. but that's not a biggie, im sure he'll get heaters this winter.

You just don't know if the person who thinks that the restaurant has amazing service is used to eating only at WhiteSpot/Dennys/Olive Garden or if they regularly dine at Vij's/Boathouse/Sandbar/The Cannery.

P.S. I agree with Hanoj - if I say hi it will be after the meal/service/paying of the bill.
I agree. .that is why dinehere.ca is good. i like to click on the users and read what other reviews and what they've been eating and where... haha !

LOL I don't mind. I'm not competing with Gotham or anything. I also use Triple AAA Certified Angus Grade Beef steaks with the same distinctions that seperate it from other places (Only 8% of all beef qualify, Superior flavour and juiciness from the marbling, etc) BUT they aren't $60+ here

It depends on HOW you want to impress them; pretentious up-scale western steakhouse costing an arm & a leg (maybe even some internal organs) or a hip, modern/contempary Japanese fusion with different kind of food and huge selection of drinks? Since he's so big shot I'm sure he's been to many many places, you would probably not be the first (or last) to take him to a high-end white restaurant

but Rev* I will definitely try to hook you up! Just look/ask for me when you come down! See what we can do!

PS. Did you book it already? I only see some reservations for 29p, 20p, 15p so far for the 29th, Tuesday right?

Been there a couple times with some friends, but I wasn't the person who always wants to order and try new food...

taking a good out of town friend there this saturday for dinner, any dishes that one can recommend that's good for TWO people?


--> Any special alcoholic drinks one would also recommend? Will single martini's or cocktails get one drunk? How much % do they have?

Btw: I just called and tried to make a reservation, you guys don't take reservations for 2 on a Saturday? Just want to be prepared and make sure we don't have to wait... the girl who picked up the phone said we just have to drop by and see?? That's kind of a turnoff...

Thumbs up

hm .. it depends on how much you can eat .. haha
I got some special cocktails going on right now ... every drink has alcohol %'s listed on it (I was bored while editing the menu lol) so you can see exactly ho much your drinking!

Yeah because the weekends are usually so packed it's hard to book up a table for 2, we usually just slot them in at the bar stools or at the counter, but your from RS so you get special privileges

Just PM about the details (name, #, time) of your booking and I'll make it happen

I was at ebisu last night(thursday). The rolls were ok, but the Arasi Pasta(I think that's how you spell it)... that was awesome . Like how some of you guys posted above that the service is kind of lacking compared to other restaurants. The management team has to come up with a better training system.

I'm always open to feedback, good or bad. It helps me to improve myself. If no one says anything then I would never know!

I will definitely be working on the service, get a few more staff meetings together. Takes a little time to re-adjust the system and kick the girls in the butt to get things rolling.

Been so busy what with the new renovations at the new place, getting staff, etc..

Once again I apologize for the bad experiences some of you have had here recently and hope I can redeem myself in the near future!

Deon.. the exact same situation happened to myself and a friend as well.

This may/ may not be the same girl, but I find it really rude and discomforting when that happens in ANY OTHER restaurants I go to. Have this negative experience and it makes me want to pimp slap those waitresses for taking my change as tips...

I find it really strange that should happen. I've never seen it nor do I condone it. I always tell the cashier to give back the change unless it was obvious like for example a $73 bill and they pay with four $20s AND a toonie. You mentioned a $70 bill and you paid with a hundred dollar bill and didn't get change? Was it a split bill table? Sometimes those get confusing when 15 people are paying at the same time for a single party. Otherwise I really don't know how that could happen, odd...

Just got back not long ago... Dinner was great. Food was OK, drinks were awesome. Service was improved from the last time I went... I was kinda buzzed to look at the bill and just went ahead and paid for it... But doing some recalculations now (I know the menu online might not have been updated with prices), it seems like I was over charged by $20+.

Anyways, anyway I can check with you Deon? Or let you know and confirm what I ordered? Thanks for the reserve booking btw.
