salt tasting room is not worth it, you can just go on a normal day and try regular menu. It's more of a lounge than a dinner place.

Griffins menu is interesting LOL for one of the Apps and the Prime Rib Entree they make you add $10/each on top of the set price of $28

$28 + $10 + $10 = $48 before wine/drinks/tax

going to dine out for: west, cincin, five sails, octopus garden (if we can actually get seats), society

guess i get to see if they purposely lower the quality of food for dine out or if it's consistent with their regular menu

Quality is ususally consistent as it's the same kitchen staff, but portions and ingredients may be lower quality. Though it could suffer depending on how busy they get for dine-out compared to what they see ususally.

how do you check what are the items on their dine out menus?

most of the websites i went seem to only have their regular menus on there =/

i.e where's the menu for coast, griffins, la terraza, etc.

edit: oh snap, i'm retarded.. i went thru the opentable.com website, so no wonder

Went to coast today~
i recommend! Pretty good food~
i got the crabcake and shared a tenderloin and the jumbo prawns.
I suggest the tenderloin.. But ask if you can get the sides that come with the salmon/prawns.
The side for the tenderloin wasnt that great.. Kind of bitter and really salty.
Oh.. The clam chowder was good too. The red west coast kind~

went to CinCin yesterday their menu isn't posted on dine out vancouver..
from what i remember it was
Appetizer: sweet onion soup, something octopus, or baby greens
Mains: baked lingcod, wood oven pork rack, or 4 cheese pasta (it has an italian name)
Dessert: tiramisu, rhubarb pie or chocolate fondant tart

Overall it was ok but nothing really impressive... i'd give it like 7-7.5 / 10

I just came back from COAST..

overall it was alright..

I had the crab cake for appetizer it was good highly recommend, my frd got the prawn salad it was ok..

For main i had the beef tenderloin .. do not recommend... it was small and they slightly overcooked it (i asked for medium rare) and the vegetable sides were SUPER salty.. my frd had the prawn main the prawns were good but again the veggies were super salty.

The dessert was good .. the cheesecake lollipops were crazy good..

One of the things that kinda annoyed me is the slow service because the place was PACKED....

.. i have west tmrw will update.
