i went, too my surprise most of the customers that night were caucasians. The manager there is half caucasian and half japanese. This is more like a fusion Japanese resturant and not your authentic izakaya.

food is 7/10 and the japanese waitress there is pretty good looking
I think she is a local model too

the place was sooo loud. the oysters for 1 buck a shuck (happy hour) would have been a great choice.

I went to Cloud 9.

My appetizer was Spinach Salad which was pretty good. Entree was the Kung Pao Prawn and Scallops which was a little spicy. The dessert was some cake that tasted like Resses Peanut Butter Cup with a scoop of ice cream. I went at 8pm and didnt get my entree until 9:15. Appetizer came quickly though.

Overall I would gave it 7/10. Decent food, nice view, but I guess the day I went it was too busy and our food took wayyyyy too long to come

friends dragged me to the boathouse in richmond today
I was pretty disappointed. Pretty shitty Service
When salads came this Asian server just tossed it on the table. Salad wasn't even mine but he just placed it in front of me =_=
Hostess was little attitudy. Our main server was so so.
Asian chick that served soup was nice though. That's the only reason why I tipped

Appy: Lobster bisque was fantastic
Main: Cedar plank sampler. One of my salmon chunks & cod came waaay too mushy.
Dessert: brownies. for some reason my brownie chunk was noticeably smaller than my friends' wtf
It's okay though I don't dessert much and I need to watch my weight anyways

overall, service really went down hill since last time I was there.
Food was meh (didn't expect much anyways). If it wasn't for my friends I wouldn't have gone/go again in the future. At least not the Richmond location :X

One reason I don't fully support DOV is the customers don't understand the flaws of a set menu.

If there are 3 entrees being offered its not like a restaurant can anticipate if one of them will sell out. They aren't going to make excess amounts, especially if they're special for the event. Then people feel entitled to be offered alternatives or compensation if something is sold out. There are alternatives! The other entrees!

Not to mention, everybody is going to take advantage of the set menu prices and suddenly, the restaurant staff are overwhelmed, resulting in a negative experience.

DoV is a plague.

Went to Water Street Cafe yesterday and it was alright, not too bad but nothing special. 7/10.

Had reservations for 8:15 and was seated by 8:20. The waitress was very nice and kept checking back to see if we're ok and constantly filling our glasses with water. The wait time for our food was pretty slow though, it took 30+ min from when I finished my appy till I got my main.

Appy: Fanny Bay Oysters - it was alright, there was a lot of sauce but it was very light and not a lot of taste to it

Main: Whole Fresh Atlantic Lobster with spaghetti - Same with this, it was ok, there was a lot of the "sea" taste/smell in the lobster and a lot of Tomalley too, I actually don't really like it and thought it would have been removed but according to the waitress you have to request it to be removed when ordering.

Dessert: Flourless Double Chocolate Espresso Cake - I enjoyed this the most and it was good, the cake had a very rich chocolate and espresso taste to it and it was very filling.

I walked up the street to abigails at 5:30pm for dinner, should be easy to get in for dinner, right? No, its dine out night. I totally forgot that this was going on. I just wanted a goddamn steak frites with my wife. Me and the manager had a good quick laugh about our dine out terrors, and I popped up to chewies for some non-dineout, so all is well I suppose.

Went to Yew a few days ago. The service was good, food was to my liking (not too much, not too little, taste was to my liking), meals were timed well, and the place looks very nice and classy. I was there in the late evening so I'm not sure how the service would have fared during peak meal hours, but they weren't grouchy after that period so I'm assuming they are able to hold their composure.

Oh yes, water and wine were filled on a regular basis.

Rating: I would definitely go there again.

+1

Boathouse recently lost its head chef after 25 years being with the company, if that doesn't tell you to stay away from a sinking ship (pun intended), I don't know what does.
