Dine Out Vancouver 2010

I thought there would be a thread about this already but nothing came up on search so i figured I'd start one.

We're pretty lucky to live in a city with such international tastes. There's so much to choose from I never know which ones to check out.

I just wanted your opinions on which restaurants are good and which are bad. Which ones have you tried? Which were your favorite? Which ones are a waste of time / $$?

Click here for the complete list of Dine Out restaurants and menus...etc.

Observatory is over rated. Aside from the view,food is mediocre at best.

+1, since I don't value the dessert.

Most of the $38 places serves entrees that are $32-$45 on their regular menu. To me, they are just giving away the appy and dessert for free.

I would rather go when these places are not busy, well, most of them are pretty dead during the week anyways. and i am not limited to the shitty selection of 2 or 3 entrees.

Agreed. $38 is pretty damn expensive for Dine-Out Vancouver compared to the past years..

Wasn't it $15, $25, $35, a few years back? Only added a couple bucks... But still, for some places, I wouldn't spend $38 bucks for their Dine-Out Menu... =/

Word. $38 + tax and tip and you're easily looking at 45-50 per person. With someone, it'll be $100. But that is to be expected for fine dining, really.

Got reservations for Coast and Le Gavroche.

Don't know if I want to try others.. I went on a mad craze last year.. lol
Damn these things add up.

Any recommendations? I've tried most of the well known West Coast restaurants.. I think.

If you get drinks too, that tacks onto the bill too. I guess if you only go once in forever to fine dining, it's not too bad.

Quite the gong show even trying to see the menu today on tourismvancouver.

Looks like the $$$$$ restaurants are sold out (West and Coast) to name a few

I made reservations to the following (looking forward to them)
Joe Fortes's
Five Sails

I'll go if friends plan it and invite me, but I don't plan on making any arrangements myself. It's just not a good deal anymore; most of the places you can get regular menu items for $38 at the top-tier restaurants instead of three half-sized portions.

And then you have shit like Old Spaghetti Factory for $18, when normally $13 will get you the entire meal? How does that work?!
