Last time I went to Sip it was pretty fail, everything was way too salty.
Kerkis was excellent last year!

So many restaurants to choose from I'm not sure where to book!

Cloud 9 food was nothing special. But I guess you go for the atmosphere.
Sip not good.
Cin-cin decent.
Nu good.
Stone Grill decent.

Hmm what about The Keg?

For $28 you get an appetizer + Prime Rib + Dessert, I wonder how big the Prime Rib is..does anyone know? If it's regular size then that's a pretty good deal If not then

Please do yourself a favour and not go to Cloud 9 lolz. Their food is totally 'meh'. Not worth it IMO. Went there once, and I'm never going back there again.

Can't wait for this! I wanna go try out Cin Cin!

Edit: Forgot to mention. One recommendation is Yew I was a regular there during the summer when I wasn't in school full-time. I love going there all the time. I love love love their sablefish I've yet to not like anything on their menu. *They make their own icecream too...and it's utterly huge. It's meant to be shared by two people at least hahaha It's served in a HUGE martini shaped glass cup*

Not sure which ones your looking at but the ones i've looked through all say per person..

Maybe this is confusing your.. for example
http://www.tourismvancouver.com/visi...ls.php?id=2973
C's - $38 per person, set menu with no choices.. its a 5 course meal whatever you see is whatever you get ..

or

A lot of other places like Water St.Cafe
http://www.tourismvancouver.com/visi...ls.php?id=3013
$28 per person, set menu with choices.. Its a 3 course meal but they give you different dishes to chooose from..

AKA there is 3 Prices: $18, $28, $38 - They are all set menus but depending on the restaurant they charge differently.. but yes they all should be per person. (Ex. C's = Fine dining, they charge $38... While Spaghetti Factory = Casual garbage, they charge $18)

Gonna do Joe Fortes, Water St Cafe and Keg.

Bacchus is fabulous but the menu didn't really appeal to me this year.

My experience with dine out is usually the portion sizes are about 3/4 regular but it really varies from place to place. Some go all out, some give very little.

Mistral French Bistro is a must try imo. I went last year for dineout and had an awesome experience. Went back again after the on a regular night and the experience was just as good if not better. This is one of the few places imo at least that has given me the trifecta which is ambience, awesome service, and awesome food. Highly recommended

Boss took 9-10 of us to Mistral for Christmas lunch, and it was awesome. They also offered us a set menu at the time, and steak frites was one of the options. Most of us ordered it as our main, and all of our plates were clean afterwards.

I'm going there again (so that I can have steak frites again!), with 3 others who haven't gone yet. For $28 it's a pretty good price!

The time I went, the servers were cute french girls.
