Went for dinner out to enjoy some Italian cuisine. The restaurant is easily found, clean, and organized. We were seated promptly, and engaged by the staff - yes, we were important to them, you will be too. The food was delicious, timely, and a generous portion. Everything was fresh and cooked well. Lots of pasta on the menu, and the daily features plentiful - pretty much something for everyone. Service was good. A real good experience. But, please note that this is a pricier place to dine out, best for special occasions, dating, or for those that can afford the better things in life.
The online menu must be dated, as the prices do not reflect the cost of our evening. All in all, a very good time was had, the food delicious, and the service great.
To management, the restaurant is tidy and clean and crisp, but needs a little more ambiance - some plants, some visual division of space between tables, maybe table clothes, something to make it feel a little less stark? Sorry, but we felt we were in a big room with tables, not a cozy personal space of our own. And maybe that's just a personal thing...
Thank-you for a great dinner and great service.

Bravo Restaurant & Lounge

Pacific Northwest Cuisine, signature cocktails and award winning wine list. Casual elegant atmosphere.

Reviewed By Charles W

This little gem will/should catch you off guard. Warm entrance upon your arrival with welcoming staff. With both street view Seating and quiet areas to the back. The menu is a combination of old favourites with an eclectic touch of a modern Chef/owner making his mark. A nice treat to modern fine dining without the big city bling. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Greek Islands Restaurant II

Reviewed By 627dale - Nairobi, Kenya

We've been Greek Islands customers since the first restaurant began in Abbotsford. When we moved away from there in 2005, we missed it, and were very pleased to see them open a Surrey location.
We've tried most items on the menu, and not once have we been disappointed. The Greek specialties are incredible, and this is THE place for lamb. The pastas are mouthwateringly scrumptious, and my wife and I agree that their Caesar salad dressing is the best we've ever had. You really can't go wrong!
The servers are always friendly, efficient and attentive, and the cooks are talented (and funny).
After our winter travels, The Greek Islands Restaurant is one of our first stops when we get home.
We highly recommend this restaurant!

Shandhar Hut

Reviewed By Dar F - Langley BC, Canada

Truly a great authentic indian restaurant. The name Shandhar which comes from the Hindi and Urdu language when translated into English means : spectacular, splendid, marvelous and grand, all can be used to describe this place.
if you really enjoy good authentic Indian food, you have to try this place. Served in copper pots with stunning flavor and all can be ordered with enough heat to warm anyone on a cold winter day. Can get very busy, but well worth the wait, and one of this reviewers favorite places.

Pho Galaxy Restaurant

Reviewed By Stephanie L - Vancouver, Canada

My family and I went to eat here last week. The service was horrible and very unfriendly!! The server/owner? was very patronizing towards my parents and I did not appreciate that....
The soups were very bland and the plates were dirty. Ew.
To add insult to injury, after a dinner of horrible service, when we were paying the server/owner? suddenly started to joke around and act friendly as to maximize his tips.
Overall, a very horrible experience.

Vita Bella Bistro

Reviewed By Valerie8825 - Chilliwack, Canada

Have been here a few times and never had anything but excellent service and delicious food. So many choices on the menu. My favorite is the lasagna. My husband is celiac and they have a few gluten free pasta options as well and they are just as good. This is one of the nicest Italian restaurants we have been too. If you don't live in Chilliwack it is definitely worth the drive.

Harvest Store & Cafe

Reviewed By Hawkeye4077 - Maitland, Australia

This unopposing, quaint restaurant offers a wide range of meals, snacks and baked goods. As a change from coffee opted for the fresh lemonade - good choice. A teenage friend travels with friends on public transport to visit Harvest. I've got to agree, if I had more time I would come back to try more on the menu.
