Charming French brasserie inside the stylish Opus Hotel. Chef Don Letendre's menu is authentic French country cuisine with a modern panache. Roasted sable fish, braise du jour, bacon wrapped petit tenderloin, roasted veal chop and warm sticky toffee pudding are but a few bistro highlights.
An absolute gem, this American steakhouse style restaurant is the finest in Vancouver. Absolutely amazing steaks, great appetizers and wonderfully rich desserts. Main courses and sides are ordered individually, and the sides should be shared because they're really generous portions. A huge selection of local and imported wines. Impecable service, food, and setting. It is fairly expensive, as a dinner for two (appetizers, mains, sides, wine, dessert) was just over $200, but worth every penny.

The Eatery is "the funkiest place for Japanese food" and it really is amazing. The menu is about 8 pages long with lots of tradition Japanese and sushi food as well as tons of Eatery originals. My highest recomendations go to the Tuna Tempura, the Captain Crunch roll and the Bagel roll. Very good prices, good portions, friendly staff and fun decor. Phone ahead for reservations on Friday and Saturday nights.

A new funky stylish Belgian restauraunt, opened downtown near the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the library and both stadiums. It is a stone's throw away from the Stadium Skytrain Station.
The food is imaginative, and all the dishes are under $20. The mussles are wonderful, and the steak frites is cooked to perfection. Needless to say the fries are true Belgian style served with mayo.
Apart from a full wine list they have a huge amount of Belgian beers in the bottle and on tap.
Well worth a visit or two.

Huge servings, great pasta (minutes old before it hits the boiling water) and great sauces. Fresh, fresh fresh. The place is upbeat, and friendly. My line for the place used to be "the restaurant where the only thing fresher than the pasta are the waitresses". Haven't been there for about three years, but hear from good friends whose palate I trust that it is still wonderful. Relaxed style, long line ups (no reservations) and will worth the wait. The people watching on that area of Hastings is great too. I have been eating there since it opened in the fall of 1984. You more..
(Westcoast Continental Cuisine) A quaint little bistro restuarant in Downtown Vancouver. Serving 28 Day aged & Marinated Alberta beef, often considered the best in the world. Large variety of seafood, including, prawns, mussels, Dungeness crab, and catfish. This place is cozy, warm and fun-a perfect romantic hide away, one of Vancouver's great hidden gems.
(West coast style) In Burnaby, Hastings and Willingdon area - just a few stores from Anton's. Jennifer and Eric had two of their last three anniversary dinners at this restaurant - one of Eric's all time favourites. This restaurant is run by a husband and wife team (he is the chef, she handles the rest). Small, but good wine list. Small restaurant, tastefully decorated with gold wall in a pear theme, and great food. Lots of game, venison and rabbit. You can get away with $100 for two people if you order wine by the glass. Has a chef tasting menu as well as a la carte. The more..
(West coast style) On 10th near Alma. "Best of the Best" This restaurant only serves "tasting menus" where you get 5-6 small dishes. You have a choice of vegetarian, fish, game or a chef's special. Complex, multi-layered flavours. A meal here will cost you about $100 with a glass of wine, and it's worth every penny. The wait staff are divine, the linen is starched, the lighting dim and it's just a great place to go. All original, organic produce, if possible, constantly changing menus, great wine list with lots of BC wines.

(West coast style) On 12th near Granville. Jennifer and Eric went there on their first anniversay 7 years ago and had a fantastic meal. Sam Lalji and Adam Busby were in charge at the time. The owners have changed slightly since then. We have been there at least four times since and it is still good, though not up to that first meal.
