    Two favorite restaurants in the Vancouver area with great service:

  • Kelly Marion

    Best Service? Shoot. Not necessarily the best restaurant…. 

    I had some pretty fantastic service at Boneta (the servers know their food and drink menu very well + the manager came out to speak to us to see how we were doing) 

    I also was very impressed at the service at  Carderos’s despite it being a very busy day. The server was friendly, casual and didn’t try to up-sell, but efficient and successful at it anyhow. That’s a good server.

    Wait does La Brasserie Street Cart count? 😉 They’re very nice there.

  • Best service – Glowbal Grill has never let me down, and also Maurya – for a celiac they knew food alergys well and made sure they suggested all teh right options without gluten – even the wine.

  • janetheputri

    C restaurant & Diva at the Met

  • Megan Harris

    best service I’ve had lately is from Italian Kitchen and Verace Pizzeria @megana28:twitter 

  • Dianne Chow

    The best service at a restaurant would be Atithi as they literally ran back to the kitchen to get a regular customer a different meal to take home with her as she didn’t like what she ordered and Vijis as they give you complimentary appetizers to make up for the long wait to get inside their popular restaurants.
