“Chain restaurant,hit and miss”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

Great place to go for the view, went Saturday which was a sunny day so lovely to sit there with a drink soaking up the view.Franchise place, been there 6 times since it opened. Have been to another location in another town which has better, service, atmosphere and food than this location. This location does not have that fun feel the other location has. Servers are ok but not great each time we have been, this time we had to stand up and hail the server as she disappeared. The previous time we went the same thing happened, could not get the bill or the server to come back with debit machine to pay bill. We also observed 2 other tables with the same issue. The staff all sit at a table in plain view of patrons. Perhaps if they socialised less with each other the service may improve. My husband goes for the Italian Wedding soup which is good. Chicken parmesan is too dry, once it was good but usually cooked too much each time I order it. Pasta ok, some dishes better than others. My son usually orders pizza which he likes. If you are hungry and want soup or salad & bread included with your meal than this is the place. They have a great location for seeing the Vancouver skyline and the harbour. If theyimproved service and tried to up the fun factor that this chain is supposed to known for then it would probably be alot more full.
