Don't think you need resos for the Keg to take part on the DoV menu, they an insert in all the menus IIRC.

Salmon House on the Hill

Ambiance and view was spectacular...definitely go take a date there
however food was so-so

Had the lobster bisque which was good but not great
Ordered the New York steak medium rare and it came out medium well and wasnt juicy at all
came with jumbo fries..

for dessert i had the apple crisp...which was good
however the chocolate mousse cake i didnt really like

with that being said..this is just their DOV menu
i havent tried the regular menu so it could be different
and they say never judge a restaurant from their dineouts

i wouldnt go back for the food but for the ambiance 100 percent

Kind of like my experience than except I probably had a better time b/c my entreee wasn't too bad and sounds like the NY sucked. Agreed though, probably won't return for the food because although it wasn't too bad it wasn't GOOD but the view is nice so might give it another go sometime with the girl.

Just got back from coast, food was 3/10 at best but service was good.

Hand to god, the fries that came with the mussels were some of the worst fries I have tried. Chewy and bland, I told this to my server and he brought me another one, I didn't want to be a nuissance so I told him the second freshly made ones were a lot better. They were just as bad tbh.

The dine out chowder is reminiscent of cafeteria food, not terrible but there are so many better options in this city, especially for this kind of money.

Lobster Mac & cheese was good, $10 for a decent portion, not bad as a side to share.

Dine out entree snapper came overcooked and disgusting at first, brought that to the attention of the server and he came back with an alright snapper.

Kinda want to cry having to pay $38 + tips for this crap. My advice is to skip the dineout menu and order from their comically sized regular menu.

Went to Cork and Fin today with a few friends.

The Oysters were good, after that, the food was bland and tasteless. Would never go back there. If you have a reso there, cancel it, it's not even worth the discounted Dine Out price.

My thougts exactly! Keg is so not worth it anymore. I remember YEARS ago (like 10) when the keg was actually really great and cheaper (not that it is not affordable now).

Everytime I eat there now, I always leave disappointed and annoyed.

Food is rather bland and not excited. Also, I can not count the amount of times my dinner has come out cold.

Service is usually shitty and slow.

Cost is over-priced for what you get.

In the past, I did C (so good) and Gotham (also really good).

Not really interested on DOV this year for so reason...

I don't think Keg serves low quality food. It's just that a classic NY dinner is priced at $32.95, which include salad and sauteed mushrooms (as entree side). I would eat a NY anyday than eating their sirloin or prime rib that's offered with DOV. Steak at Keg is generally pretty good - at Yaletown Burnaby and Richmond.

Went to L'abattoir last week and I would say the food for the most part was pretty good, 8/10

The best dishes that night would have to be Poached egg with potato gnocchi (appy) and Pasta stuffed with braised lamb shoulder and Roast tenderloin (main). The Earl grey pot de creme pineapple upside down cake were both really good too. the other appy i had were Country style pork pate (meh) and main Duck breast and leg meat sausage (not bad). I did finish the meal stuffed tho.

oh and attentive service as well, each time a dish came out the server explained and listed all the ingredients in it

All in all a good dineout considering i haven't done dineout for 2 years cause they usually suck

Yea, friend works at the Keg one of the perks is he can get 40% off the meal for him and his friends and it even applies to DOV. Can't pass up a deal like that.

Went to The Boathouse in Kits on Friday and ordered from their $28 DOV menu.

Appy: Firecracker Shrimp - Decent sized shrimp in a mildly spicy broth accompanied by 2 slices of bread.

Entree: 7oz. Sirloin Steak with Lobster Thermidor - Steak was cooked to my liking (medium-rare) and the lobster thermidor was good. The portions of the sides (mashed potatoes, string beans, and something that resembled asparagus) were less than expected though.

Dessert: Espresso Creme Brulee - Never had creme brulee before so, can't compare with others but I found it to be a little too sweet.

Ambiance was nice and the staff were attentive. Good experience overall

went to cobre on saturday. good ambience/music and service was top notch.

had the rockfish for appetizer and bison for main. the fish was good but i've had better but the bison was delish! the meal came a tad late so they gave us discount on the total bill.
