my sister recommended this so we went with her son for dinner. Truly an excellent choice for an appetizer. Looks like there is a nice patio for outdoor dining (still too cool to check it out).

Always a great place for lunch. The menu has lots of offerings and everything I have tried has been very good. I love their fish tacos.

Went for my birthday dinner gift on 11/26 after wanting to try it for a long time. Cool vibe outside, parking lot packed. Inside, only a few diners at 7p. Bar area must have been full. Dining area was dark and bare feeling. Just rusty...More

I've come here a few times for HH. It's a nice place. I really enjoy the food and the cocktails are acceptable. It's one of the best places to go in Vancouver.
