some sushi place in a funeral home named oyama

garbage food, oysters were bland and disgusting (raw oysters) and the oyster motoyaki was flavourless as well.... the mayo on top was non existent.

Had white dragon roll, VERY VERY unappetizing. DO NOT GET!

2.5/10

I knew i shouldn't of went to any sushi place near metro/burnaby -_- Big mistake. Rather go EBISU by paying a little bit more $ but quality is far worth it than here..

Man, Verdasco. You have the most unpleasant dining experiences by far out of this 244 page thread. How the fuck you get yourself into these situations is beyond comprehension.

Then again, you went to a sushi place that was once a funeral home. Maybe the dead really hate you.

Edit: You got fucking e-coli from a Korean restaurant? Jesus Christ I'm surprised you haven't already died!

couldn't stop laughing

businesses that service customers have to remember that people experiencing the food/service never forget the bad ones

To be honest, I'm surprised you haven't found razor blades in your food.

Hawksworth
Food: 9.5/10
Service: 4/10
Price: 5/10
Food was amazing. I had Seared duck breast with duck confit crepe, carrot, radish and buckthorn jus. Wife had Venison with spatzle, salsify and sweet and sour nage. Everything in the mains was so well balanced and perfectly cooked. Hugely impressive. We had Waygu beef carpaccio as an appetizer. The appy was the only thing that wasn't amazing. It was good, but it just felt like it wasn't a complete dish. It was boring. Also the fresh baked bread selection was nice and had good variety.
I had some cheap beer as I always do and was happy as fuck. I'm still a man, and I like some easy drinking cold beer with my meal, no matter how fancy. Wife had some wine that she liked. If its red and alcoholic its likely a wine she will like, so take it for what it is.
The service really wasn't great. Maybe its because we are a relatively young couple to be in there, it seemed like the waiter thought we just weren't worth his time. He didn't even bother to tell us the features, was fairly smug, and just seemed like he didn't want us there. We aren't a pair of rich people, but I'm paying the menu prices just as much as the rich guy at the table next to me and it pays better as a server to treat everyone with respect. That being said, all of the other staff in the restaurant were very pleasant. Hostess was smokin hot too.
Over all it was good, but nowhere near worth the price as a whole experience. I'm just not a fine dining type of guy. I respect the food, but its a dying style of restaurant experience.

I can attest to that.

It's a turkey shoot almost.

It's not consistent.

Sometimes good, sometimes bad, and I guess it depends on who you get.

Had one of the better meals of my life at Hawks worth, beleive I had the tenderloin or mixed grill and GF had the sturgeon. There were 6 of us there at that time. Food and drinks were top notch for sure but the service doesn't really reflect the place. I've had far better more attentive service at Hy's etc

I went once for my birthday a few years back, and had a good experience. The service was not memorable positively or negatively, but the food and atmosphere was great.

I would recommend it.

Depends on the person. For someone who is really into food, has endless amounts of money, and doesn't have a problem with the pretentiousness of outdated fine dining, yes. For someone like myself, who loves food, has the family income of a chef and a nurse, and absolutely loathes all that fine dining stands for, definitely not. I still have yet to find a restaurant I'd recommend over la Quercia when it comes to a "special occasion" kind of dinner.

I didn't care for Hawksworth. The service was okay, the food was okay, but I don't think it was worth the money. (Even though someone else treated.)

I've eaten at many fine dining restaurants and I found Hawksworth to be one of many fine dining establishments that is over hyped.

Verdasco - I thought of you throughout the evening (you should be flattered.) I was hoping to find used needles, razor blades, and to end up waking up this morning to explosive diarrhea and E-coli cuz East Van/Gastown, but sadly, it did not happen.
